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?
I used to not, but now I do! Up until about a year ago I though all zodiac/astrology stuff was rubbish! But then I read in article about it and I learned that I was a virgo, also I realized I had many virgo traits! I thought it was just a just a coincidence at first. Then I learned what many of my friends zodiac signs, and I learned that for the most their personalities fit their zodiac sign as well!
Of course not
What sort of gullible folk actually believe that the relative positions of the stars and the planets at the time of your birth actually affects their personality?
It's utter tripe. Do you really think anyone who shares your birthday is going to be like you?
"Horoscope" personality assessments are so vague and generalized that they can apply to almost anyone.
I used to not believe in it but I do now
I got this book from the library once. It was about the zodiac signs. It had all of the characteristics-and I mean ALL of them- of every zodiac sign. I decided to do a test. I asked my mom, my dad, and a few of my friends if they could give
me two traits that they thought described them. 89% of the traits they gave me were the ones that the book AND internet said. Then I did the same thing but asked people what traits they thought I had and they were right. So yeah it's up to you to decide if you believe in it or not.
It uses statements that everyone can apply for.
No,I don’t. Maybe the traits attributed to a person who falls under a particular zodiac sign happen to tally with characters the individual exhibits, but then, what do you know? Humans always find a way of convincing themselves that they do stuffs that they really don’t
I believe that do and they don't. For example I'm exactly like my zodiac sign. The majority of it is SPOT ON, but other people, like my ex boyfriend do not match his sign. I guess it really all depends. It also depends on if you were an early baby or a late baby. I was born exactly on time so my zodiac sign really describes me, my best friend on the other hand, she was early. She somewhat matches with her sign, but she matches more with the sign of the month she was suppose to be born in. There are a lot of factors that go into this.
It is unfortunate that people will not only base, judge, and define others by their horoscope but do so with sincerity and seriousness as well.
Judging someone based on the day they were born is complete ignorance if I've seen it. Time, months and days are concepts WE, us humans, made up. Zodiac signs - no matter how ancient the practice dates back to - was made by man, and humans are so very, very flawed.
