All About Astrology

Astrology is something that has become more of an interest to me over the past few months. I never really thought about it before, but recently, it's becoming something that I think about quite a lot, and I often do research about it when I've got spare time, or if I'm curious about a certain topic. I thought that I'd do a bit of an introductory post today, and if you want me to talk about it more in the future, then I'm happy to do so.
Back in September, when I was thinking about introducing this topic to my blog, I asked for your questions over on my Twitter. I did receive a few, but then I asked for some more a couple of weeks ago as well, because I thought that I might get more of a response if I did things that way.
First of all, I just want to talk about what astrology actually is, considering that some of you might not know that.
I'm sure most of you know about star signs, right? They all have different meanings, and they depend on the month, and the day that you're born. The terms astrology, zodiac, horoscopes, stargazing, and star signs are all intertwined, and they all mean similar things that relate to each other. There are 12 zodiac signs in total, and they are:
Aries: March 21st - April 19th
Taurus: April 20th - May 20th
Gemini: May 21st - June 20th
Cancer: June 21st - July 22nd
Leo: July 23rd - August 22nd
Virgo: August 23rd - September 22nd
Libra: September 23rd - October 22nd
Scorpio: October 23rd - November 21st
Sagittarius: November 22nd - December 21st
Capricorn: December 22nd - January 19th
Aquarius: January 20th - February 18th
Pisces: February 19th - March 20th
If you don't already know, I'm a Pisces, and I was born on the 2nd March. That means I'm the last zodiac sign out of them all!
Before I ramble on even more (like I always seem to do!), I'm going to go ahead, and answer some of the questions that I received. Hopefully they help you, but if this topic is something that you're interested in, then I'm more than happy to do follow-up posts about it in the future. Just let me know!
What do you think about NASA changing the dates for the star signs? @thekatybennett - If I'm being completely honest with you, I haven't paid any attention to it at all. Initially, like with most things, people are always quick to jump to conclusions, and freak out. I know, because I do it too! There was all of this confusion about NASA changing the star signs around, and adding a new one in, but I just don't believe it. I've done my research, and from what I can see, it was just caused by rumours - that's all!
Do you believe in astrology based horoscopes, or in astrology in general? @kvburton657 - I wouldn't say that I follow astrology based horoscopes all the time, and I read into them at least once a day, because I don't. I regularly read up about astrology, and sometimes I do read up about horoscopes in particular, but very rarely. They don't mean all that much to me, and quite frankly, I don't even have the time at the moment!
What is the meaning behind the star sign Gemini? @beccaonblog - The star sign of a Gemini is attached to the element of air. With star signs, they are either attached to air, water, fire, or Earth. Becca mentioned that she's a twin, and funnily enough, according to my research, the sign for Gemini is the twins, and it represents their dual nature! That sounds like something out of Jekyll and Hyde, but I suppose it is in a way! Some adjectives that describe people born under this star sign would be sociable, chatty, curious, and moody.
If you could be any other star sign, what would you be? @JustMorgsx - I honestly love this question. It's actually something that I've thought about quite a lot over the past year, and I've finally come to the conclusion that I feel is most accurate, and representative of me as a person. I would definitely be a Gemini. This is the star sign that quite a few of my most important loved ones are born under, but it's also the other one, aside from Pisces, that I feel most reflects who I am as a person. I definitely think that I have a dual person, and I'm sure that the people around me would agree!
What got you interested/interests you about astrology? @lifeinkateish - One day, I just remember suddenly becoming fascinated by the whole idea of it. I'm not too sure how it came about, but it's been an interest of mine for over a year now! Seeing as I can't tell you how I became interested in the first place, I'll just tell you what interests me about it instead. You might know this already about me, but I absolutely love psychology, and it's what I want to study at A-Level, and in the future, at University. I'm really interested in learning about the mind, and the way that it works for different people. Seeing as I've always known what star sign I am, I just gradually began to research it, and the more I did that, the more I developed a greater interest for it, I guess! I just wanted to see what it said, and whether it all seemed accurate enough, and it was, which is probably part of the reason why I've been so interested ever since.
How closely do you follow your star sign, and the horoscopes based on it? @olivia_alesha - As I've said in one of my previous answers, I don't necessarily follow horoscopes as such, but I follow my star sign, personality characteristics, compatibility levels with other star signs, and on the odd occasion, I will look at daily, or weekly horoscopes, if I feel I want to!
Those are all of the questions that I've been asked this time! Thank you so much for everyone who did reach out to me on Twitter, but if you missed your chance this time, I'm sure there will be plenty more opportunities in the future! Let me know if you want any more posts dedicated to this topic, and if you don't, then let me know about that as well.
Is astrology a topic that interests you? Do you know what your star sign is now?
Lots of love,
