Everyone, at one point in their life, has read his or her horoscope from sources such as the newspaper, a magazine, or online. Horoscopes depict the type of person you are as well as what you will accomplish in the future.  However, is it a real science or some culmination of simple everyday psychological facts?

For thousands of years, people have looked to the stars and pondered about the shapes and patterns that they make. They believed that the stars can predict the seasons, wars, good harvests, and the people would actually connect their own lives to the star readings, giving birth to astrology. To this day, people believe that the position of the stars and planets have a great influence on their lives, and that they can predict their future and answer questions. Horoscopes are designed to do just that, however, are they accurate? If we take a close look at a horoscope, they say several things that appear to match the readers personality, such as loyalty, creativity, stubbornness, arrogant, etc. usually listing roughly around 6-8 personality traits. The fact of the matter is, is that they are actually designed for at least one of these traits to fit almost anyone's personality, regardless of their zodiac sign. In reality, horoscopes are psychological profiles that people relate to their own lives.
