There are seven and a half billion people in this world, and each and every one of them are assigned a zodiac sign. All 12 signs have drastically different traits and characteristics. The signs are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. Some signs can be seen as creative and easy going while others are ambitious and hardworking. The sign is assigned to a person based on the day they were born, but if they know the exact time they can also find out what moon they are.

The compatibility aspect is entirely different and interesting because there are certain signs that seem to not get along, while others can be seen as a perfect match together. This all depends on the signs element each sign was given. Such as water, fire, earth or air elements. It also depends on if their sun matches up.

“I do believe in horoscopes and zodiac signs,” Daniela Zuniga (12) said. “People may think they’re a myth, but I believe in it. My sign is an Aquarius and we are very compatible with Gemini’s, and with my experience 95% of the time we get along very well.”

However, as many people believe in horoscopes and zodiac signs, the topic is still controversial because there are many people who don’t believe in them.

“I agree with some horoscopes more than others, I wouldn’t say I believe in them,” Joy Richards (12) said. “Not all of the horoscopes I read are true, sometimes some are even triggering.”

The horoscope portion of zodiac signs is interesting as well. Everyone’s daily horoscope is written based on the position of the Moon, the Sun and the planets around them. They’re not really there to tell a person about their future, it’s more about helping a person to be motivated and also leads them to think more about certain situations.

“I look at my horoscope everyday, I have an app on my phone that tells me everyday,” Emma Richardson (09) said. “I believe in them because they’re usually very right about what I’m going through in certain situations, plus they give me really good advice.”

Zodiac signs and horoscopes are believed by some and not by others. They are just there to give people a sense of knowing themselves and a understanding of how the sign affects your life.
