Must we be true to our astrological signs?
In astrology people are generalized to have specific personality traits based on their birth date and which “sign” they fall under.
Is this to say that people have no control over certain aspects of their personality–because it just comes with being a cancer, or virgo, or aries or whatever?
And if so, why do some people who also believe in astrology still want or expect people to change those traits which they believe they cannot?

Just like religion, astrology is all bs.

Horoscopes are fake!!!
Answer by >>>.Q.R.<<<
Allow me to clarify. Astrology is a lot different than horoscopes or simple zodiac signs, as it has become marketed to be. While everyone talks about the Sun sign, in reality, it is much more complex than that. Nobody is just one sign, otherwise we’d be very bland, one-dimensional characters.
In a person’s astrological birth chart, there is not only a Sun sign, but a sign representing each planet – Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. The Sun and the Moon are considered planets for astrological purposes, and earth is not included, since the study is earth based. Each of those planets have a different function. The Moon has to do with your inner drives and emotional responses, while Mars has to do with how you take action to achieve those drives, etc. Now, it doesn’t stop here, because it’s not as simple as just having one sign in one planet. You also have an Ascendant, which can be described as the outer mask, and this marks the houses for your natal wheel. Planets will be placed into these houses which adds a whole new layer of function to them. Each house will also have a cusp ruler, which means that you can find all 12 signs somewhere in your chart, even if it is not a direct influence. In addition to the traits added by house placement, there are planetary aspects, which are some of the most important aspects of the birth chart. Aspects are made by the degrees and angles of the planets and signs to each other. So if you’re Moon were on top of your Venus in the same sign and degree, you’d have Moon conjunct Venus. If your Moon formed a 90 degree angle to Mars, it would be Moon square Mars, which is a tension aspect. These act in different ways, and add another layer to your personality.
Now, having said all that. Does the birth chart influence us, or do our actions rather show up in the birth chart? I believe that people can choose to express their energies in the way they desire. The chart shows potentials and natural expectancies, but free will is always in play. I think the important part of astrology is to not see it as a limitation, but rather as a lesson to help you strive to bring out the stronger points in your chart, and overcome the weaknesses. Since the chart is so complex, we do have many different facets to who we are, and how we choose to activate these facets depends on our own experiences.
Many of the serious astrologers on Yahoo have left, so it seems that everyone here only talks about Sun signs and compatibility, and they stereotype and give a bad name to astrology. These are not astrologers. These are people that are misinformed, but take this misinformation way too seriously.
In reality, a real astrologer has studied this for years. It’s a science, and an art. I still have tons to learn, and I have yet to scratch the surface.
Hope that made sense!

Do you think ziodic signs really mean anything?
These days it seems that every zodiac sign has its own special quality. Do you think that your zodiac sign does you any justice? Are you proud of it? Does it even matter?

Answer by answer gal
It doesn’t matter much to me, I just like reading stuff about it for fun. I think astrology uses the power of suggestion a LOT. If you are reading it to find out about yourself, it’s no wonder EVERYTHING THEY SAY IS TRUE, you know? You’re letting yourself be open to the possiblity of it being true, so of course it seems that way.

Back in my sophomore year of high school my English teacher gave us our horoscopes for the previous day for a month straight, during that time, we were to evaluate them and see how true they turned out to be then we had to write a paper concluding what we found out.
Surprisingly, looking back, it does seem that horoscopes do connect very greatly to your life. I was excited writing the paper showing how they connected daily, but then again, that could just have just been me trying to connect everything.
As for zodiac signs, I’m a Capricorn and every quality they say caps hold, I feel that I do.
For example, determined, single-minded, a natural leader, goal-orientated but on the darker side I’m ruthless, stingy and very pessimistic.
They say that you’re naturally attracted to someone with a zodiac sign that is compatible with yours. It all sounds crazy, but if you take a look at what sign you are and look at the loved ones in your life and compare your sign to theirs, you might be surprised.
Plug in yours and theirs. You can even check the compatibility of a coworker or a friend.
As for justice, I don’t use it as a guide to live my life, just something to reflect on when I feel like I’ve forgotten who I am.
Hope that helped.
