We all have fun and feel some kind of excitement when reading and learning about zodiac signs and their characteristics, especially when it comes to learning and pointing out characteristics about ourselves and those around us.

To understand zodiac signs one has to understand Astrology first. So what is Astrology?

In simple terms, Astrology is the study of movement and positions of the moon, stars, the sun, and planets with the belief that they affect the character and lives of people.

Another question we should ask ourselves is “What is the zodiac?”. The zodiac is “an area of the study of the sky that extends to a certain degree north or south of the ecliptic”. It is also defined as the twelve constellations in the form of animals or humans.

People have been using the zodiac for years – thousands of years to be exact.

So why hasn’t the zodiac been dismissed as pseudoscience? One of the reasons for this is because there is just too much evidence – testimonies – to support it. People report time and time again that whatever they read in their horoscopes or zodiac signs is actually true , and it can not be dismissed or ignored as it happens often.

One way to explain this whole horoscope/zodiac “mystery” is to take religion for example. Miracles happen everywhere and every time across the world, so it becomes a bit of a hassle for non believers to dismiss it. That’s exactly what happens with the zodiac – there’s just too much evidence to dismiss it.

The horoscopes we often see weekly in newspapers and magazines, however, are not true or in line with the zodiac because anyone can write anything that comes to their mind in that particular moment. This is evident with the fact that, at least once a year, they copy and paste the same horoscope in their newspapers.

To get the true meaning of a horoscope, one has to go to an expert or a professional in the Astrology field to get a more detailed explanation.

A lot of people get confused by the horoscopes they read in newspapers and magazines because the people that wrote them have no credentials to support whatever they wrote, which is why we should not pay them any attention.

In conclusion, the zodiac signs/horoscopes do carry some truth but you need an expert or a professional to explain the deeper meaning of your horoscope. We should also use the horoscopes to further our knowledge and find new meaning and new perspective of life in general.
