The Astrology Craze

You have probably heard of Zodiac signs. If you haven’t, well, you haven’t. If you have, I have a few questions for you. Why are people obsessed with Zodiac signs? Are you obsessed with Zodiac signs? Are you friends with someone that is? Then, you’ve come to the right place! In this article, I’ll provide information about Zodiac signs, explain why people are obsessed with these Zodiac signs, and get students’ opinions on the Zodiac signs.

What is the purpose of Zodiac signs?

Astrology signs, also known as Zodiac signs, are based on your birth month and date. These can also vary to other astrology signs. For example, Chinese zodiac signs. Zodiac signs are said to predict your personality. But, people like to take advantage of this and criticize you for doing something that you would probably not right now, or even in the future. Most of the time they’re wrong, but there are times where some are actually quite correct.

If you don’t know what zodiac you are, here are the dates.

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

Sagittarius: November 22nd–December 21st

Capricorn: December 22nd–January 19th

Pisces: February 19th–March 20th


Something quite interesting about Zodiacs is that you can be born on a cusp, and what a cusp means is people who are born during the suns boarding transition from one sign to another, for an example, being born between September 19th and September 25th makes you a Virgo-Libra cusp.

Elemental Relation

Every zodiac has an element; Fire, Earth, Air, & Water. The elements are characterized by different strengths & tendencies although the zodiac is affected uniquely by the element it has.

Fire signs are seen as being creative yet competitive, water signs are seen as being reserved yet intuitive, earth signs are seen as being realistic and patient, and air signs are seen as being rational & intellectual.

Theres many different reasons why people take interest in the Zodiacs, but lets talk about three of the many reasons. 1st, some people may have been raised with Zodiacs, making it a part of their life. 2nd, they were told about them by a friend or a family member, which sparked interest in the person to learn more about Zodiacs. 3rd, some others just randomly find it on social media platforms and interests them to learn about these signs more.

Why do people believe in Astrological signs ?

There are many different reasons why people believe in these signs, not all being the same. Some take little interest, doing tiny things around their zodiacs, while others may go deep into it, making almost their entire life based off their zodiacs.

“I have a friend who used to be obsessed with zodiac signs. I personally don’t like people like that, but I put up with it. The peak of this obsession is two years ago. She would search up my zodiac on Google, search on YouTube, and expect me to act like my zodiac sign. That time it was extremely annoying, but she grew out of it. She’s into astrology now and doesn’t mention zodiac signs anymore.”
