Virgo, Cancer, Aries, Pisces, Aquarius, Gemini, Leo….
Nearly everyone has heard of the signs of the zodiac, mostly through “sun-sign astrology” columns, where the signs are taken as major determinants of the personality. These signs are generally linked to the date a person was born. Each sign has different personality traits which proponents claim are found in people who have that Zodiac sign.
It is not unusual for you to find your Zodiac sign and see more than two or three traits which describe your personality. For this reason, many tend to believe it completely. Daily horoscopes on the other hand is another thing entirely. They predict the event(s) that people with particular zodiac signs will encounter daily.
Some years back, I used to have a colleague who never missed reading the daily horoscopes in newspapers. Whenever he felt funny or something was happening to him, he would explain that his horoscope had predicted it. When things went well, he would say he knew it was going to happen that way because his horoscope said so.
I’ve never understood this concept properly so I can’t even call myself a believer. What about you?
Do you believe that Zodiac signs can truly define who a person is? What is your Zodiac sign? Do you know the personality traits of your Zodiac sign and do they apply to you?
