As someone who partially believes in astrology, writing this article helped me strengthen my views on it, and I hope reading this does the same for you. In the past few years, astrology has gone viral! There are Pinterest boards filled by it, hundreds of apps made just for the people who believe in it, and hundreds of thousands of TikTok’s made just about them! Furthermore, in many newspapers, like the Mumbai Mirror, a whole section is designated just to astrology. In this article, I will explain to you the in’s and outs of astrology, mainly about sun signs, some interesting things about it, and what has made everyone so captivated by it. Astrology involves sun signs, superstitions, palm reading, horoscopes and so much more. 

To start off, the sun signs in astrology include Aries: March 21 – April 19, Taurus: April 20 – May 20, Gemini: May 21 – June 20, Cancer: June 21 – July 22, Leo: July 23 – August 22, Virgo: August 23 – September 22, Libra: September 23 – October 22, Scorpio: October 23 – November 21, Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21, Capricorn: December 22 – January 19, Aquarius: January 20 – February 18 and Pisces: February 19 – March 20. To narrow it down, there are 4 types of signs. Earth signs, air signs, fire signs and water signs. Each of these signs have their own set of extremely detailed traits that astrology believers love to study about. Articles like this showcase some of these traits. 

Some things that astrology lovers are absolutely captivated by is the fact that some of the listed traits of their own signs match their own personalities. Some believe that astrology helps them find themselves out on a deeper and often spiritual level. The signs of the zodiac, as mentioned earlier often have their own significant traits, that make the people reading them quite interested in it. There are multiple videos online of people comparing themselves to their zodiac’s traits, their favourite colors, and how their zodiac supposedly looks, and some results were actually quite accurate… and creepy! Take a look at videos like this if you are interested in that! 

Overall, astrology is something that is super interesting and once you get into it it is too hard to stop being obsessed with. Use sites like these to help find out your signs for different things, (there are A LOT of signs, mercury signs, venus signs and many more that determine different things about you). Do let me know if this article helped strengthen or clear your views on this topic. Hope you enjoyed it!
