    EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE CHINESE HOROSCOPE

    The Chinese zodiac consists of 12 animal signs and the Western zodiac consists of 12 star signs.

    The story about how the Chinese Animals came about is that a race was organized by the Jade Emperor – one of the most important gods in traditional Chinese religion. 

    The Emperor invited all the animals in the world to take part. As a reward for turning up, the Emperor named a year in the zodiac after each one, while the race would determine the order each animal would be placed.

    Chinese Animals in order:  Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig.

    The ancient Egyptians contributed the idea that patterns of stars made up constellations, through which the sun appears to “move” at a specific times during the year. It’s thought that all of these ideas came together when Alexander the Great conquered Egypt around 330 BC.

    SIGNS MOST AFFECTED BY MERCURY IN RETROGRADE

    Geminis will have their world rocked most, as it’s their season and Mercury is their ruler. 

    The key thing is to stay focused on what you want to maintain, or even create, during this time, and fix your energy. 

    Remain flexible to change, but true to your priorities.

    Virgo, Pisces, and Sagittarius are the other three mutable signs (meaning they’re born, like Gemini, at the end of a season and are naturally susceptible and adaptable people). 

    This retrograde may see you finding yourself feeling disoriented, confused or cynical about changes forced upon you, but ride the wave because this uncomfortable sensation is a signal for true change. 

    You will come out of this with new insight and a stronger plan for the future. 

    Aquarius and Libra are Gemini’s fellow Air signs and are likely to benefit from the mental ~chaos~ stimulated by a retrograde, in that it will stir up as many opportunities as obstacles, and lots of new ideas and creative sparks.

    THE STAR SIGNS MOST LIKELY TO BE FAMOUS INFLUENCERS

    New research from Lickd reveals which star sign is the most likely to be famous influencers.

    They ranked each zodiac sign by the % of influencers – and this is what they found.

    1 Gemini 12.8% 

    2 Leo 11.1% 

    3 Scorpio 8.7% 

    4 Aquarius 8.5% 

    5 Taurus 8.1% 

    6 Libra 7.9% 

    7 Sagittarius 7.9% 

    8 Pisces 7.7% 

    9 Cancer 7.4% 

    10 Virgo 7.4% 

    11 Aries 7% 

    12 Capricorn 5.5% 

    Geminis are crowned the most likely to be an influencer which is no surprise, as Geminis are sociable, often funny and have the ability to adapt to any situation. 

    Behind Gemini, is Leo (11.1%) who is often known as the leader of the pack, followed by Scorpio (8.7%) who usually has a natural magnetism which attracts others. 

    At the bottom of the ranking, is Capricorn, with only 5.5% of successful influencers having this star sign. 

    Celebrity Psychic Medium, Chris Riley says “Geminis, Leos and Scorpios make the best creators and influencers because they are the most passionate and dynamic of the Zodiac signs. Geminis are naturally playful and intellectually curious. 

    “They constantly juggle a variety of passions, hobbies, careers and friendship groups and are known as the social butterflies of the zodiac.
    “Geminis are the quick-witted twins and can talk to anyone about anything, something which shines through as influencers.”

    THE STAR SIGN MOST LIKELY TO GET MATCHES ON DATING APPS

    According to Tinder, 18-25 year olds are 29% more likely to match with someone based on a star sign than members over 25.

    What's more, those who straight up identify their sign in their bio consistently rank as a top profile feature.

    Leos may be vain, as demonstrated by the camera emoji often included in their bios, but when it comes to Tinder, they’re definitely at the top of the dating game. 

    They are the only sign to list CEO as their top job – and they’re also most likely to "Flex" in their bios. 

    They get the most "likes" and are the most likely to name their star sign in their bio. So it's safe to say they're killing it at this online dating thing.

    On the flip side, Capricorns are the least likely to include their sign in their bio.

    They’re ambitious, frequently touting their determined nature in their bios, with the inclusion of the "working out" emoji in their bios, which doesn’t leave them with much time for swiping. 

    They have the fewest swipes (right or left) of any sign.

    THE STAR SIGNS DESTINED FOR FORTUNE

    Think your star sign doesn’t affect how wealthy you are? 

    It turns out you may be wrong. Although there are billionaires all over the zodiac, nearly one in FIVE are Libras.

    The second most prosperous sign is Aries, which has nine per cent of people in the top 100, such as internet leader Larry Page. 

    The next best signs are Gemini, Cancer and Capricorn, who are all tied on eight per cent of the top 100. 

    But it's bad news for entrepreneurial Sagittariuses, as only one person in the top 100 has this sign – Chinese businessman Lei Jun.

    THE STAR SIGNS MOST LIKELY TO CHEAT

    Kerry King has revealed the star signs who are most likely to cheat, so is your partner on the list?

    According to the expert, Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Cancer, Gemini and Libra all fall on the ‘just can’t help it’ side of straying from relationships.

    She says: “Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are all Fire signs, which means they are ruled, first and foremost, by their passions. They are lusty, spontaneous, dramatic, flirtatious, and attractive.

    “Their sexual energy puts them in the danger zone for affairs, and their leaning towards living in the moment and following their heart (or other bits of their anatomy) makes them vulnerable to making bad choices. 

    “Cancer is a sucker for love, and needs huge amounts of loyalty and affection in relationships. If it’s not forthcoming at home, but is being served up elsewhere, then they are 100% tempted to head where their needs are being better met. They just need love. They are also SUPER-secretive. 

    “Gemini is an out-and-out rascal. Geminis love shiny new things, and hate to be tied down to any kind of routine or humdrum-ness, and that includes relationships. Geminis do it because they can, and because they believe if they can get away with it, then they should. YOLO. 

    “Libra is ruled by Venus, the goddess of love, and is the zodiac’s ~people pleaser~, AKA the f***boy of the cosmos.

    “Librans love to be in love, are experts at flirting, enjoy all manner of sexual foreplay, and are programmed to focus on the thrill of the chase, more than the long-term commitment part. A classic heartbreaker.”

    IS THERE SCIENCE BEHIND ASTROLOGY?

    Scientists claim astrology is not yet proven and that the position of stars and planets is more accurately defined as astronomy.

    Astronomy uses mathematics, physics, and chemistry in order to explain the origin and evolution of objects in the universe (including the moon, sun and planets).

    Some, however, argue astrology is different and is a natural science too, as it deals with observations and prediction of events in the sky which influences human affairs and the natural world.

    That being said, there’s said to be no conclusive evidence that astrology is backed by science, or that astrology is an accurate predictor of personality traits, future destinies or love lives, as written in Smithsonian Magazine.You can read more about it here.

    Aries – According to Kerry, you, Aries, have swagger, so think fashion choices which draw attention – athleisurewear works for you.

    WHERE DOES THE ZODIAC COME FROM?

    The Zodiac is the term used to describe the circle of 12 divisions of celestial longitude that are centred upon the path of the sun.

    The 12 divisions share the names we know as our star signs.

    The term zodiac derives from Latin zōdiacus – meaning “circle of animals”.

    Throughout history, the zodiac has been used to predict or echo characteristics of personality.

    WOULD YOU MAKE FINANCIAL DECISIONS BASED ON YOUR HOROSCOPE?

    More than half of Brits admit to turning to their horoscopes before making important financial decisions and life choices based on ‘advice’ associated with the zodiac sign.

    Astrologer, Francesca Oddie, said: “People really identify with their star sign and consider astrology a reliable tool for guidance.

    “When it comes to our finances, our horoscope can help us to understand characteristic traits that are reflected in our money management style.”

    In a poll of 2,000 adults, 48 per cent said they are influenced by their star sign’s predictions, with one in three adults using the advice from their sign to make life decisions.

    The research, commissioned by Barclays, found that Aquarius is the most financially confident star sign – with 42 per cent feeling happy with their money managing skills, compared to just 25 per cent of Libras.

    Meanwhile, Virgos are most likely to meet the financial goals they set for themselves and Sagittarians feel most out of touch with their finances as they avoid looking at them.

    WHAT IS NUMEROLOGY?

    Similar to astrology, numerology is the belief that the day you were born contributes to your personality.

    The concept gives everyone a “life-path” number that helps to tell you the truth about your personality, your outlook on life and any obstacles you’ll be forced to face.

    Different numbers are associated with different things, with the most powerful numbers believed to be numbers that are paired with the same number.

    For example 11, 22, and 33 are considered “master numbers: and have the “highest potential for success”.

    The number 9, meanwhile, is believed to be the strongest number and its traits include wisdom and enlightenment.

    WHY MORE MILLENIALS ARE RELYING ON HOROSCOPES

    Astrology has been around in various forms for thousands of years, but now horoscope meme machines are amassing more interest than ever.

    Tarot queen Kerry King tells us: “For some years now, astrology has played the role of therapist, counsellor and decision making aide for millennials.

    “Every generation tends to discover the stars at some point, but, for this generation, it is more than curiosity.

    “Birth charts are analysed, events like Mercury Retrograde are planned around, dating apps using astrological matching are sought.

    “In what is a very uncertain and volatile world, astrology offers structure and sense.”

    HOW DOES ASTROLOGY WORK?

    Astrology is the belief that the alignment of stars and planets affects every individual’s life depending on when they were born – from their mood to their personality to what happens in the future.

    It can be pretty complex stuff for the average person and is often referred to as “the language of the sky” – a language only astrologers understand.

    People have been studying astrology for thousands of years, and to become a horoscope reader, you need to get to grips with the basics, by reading books, reading horoscope charts and practising interpretations.

    The horoscopes is an astronomical map that shows the placement of the sun, the moon, and the planets within 12 sections of the sky—the signs of the zodiac.

    SOAP STARS

    We’ve been looking at real life showmances at The Sun.

    Have you ever wondered why some soap romances look so real? Well wonder no further our friends, it’s because they are.

    In a true case of life imitating art these amorous actors carried on camping long after the director shouted ‘cut’.

    But what if we told you it was all scripted in their star signs? Let’s take a look at how the zodiac was in on the act.

    WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF ASTROLOGY?

    Astrology is on the rise, especially among millennials. One of the reasons for astrology’s growing popularity is that it helps to explain the existence of different personality types and tendencies.

    Knowing your sign can help you understand why you get emotional so easily (looking at you, Cancer), or why boredom is the worst punishment imaginable to you (Gemini, anyone?).

    Or maybe you feel you’re in your natural element when you’re organising the clothes in your wardrobe by colour (quite a Virgo thing to do!).

    Knowing someone else’s sign can also help explain why another person grates on your nerves, or why you click like you’ve known each other for a million years: it’s simply written in the stars.

    A lot of people also find astrology helpful for making life decisions. If you know you’re a sensitive and devoted Cancerian, you can use this awareness to help you.

    Knowing your star sign can help you find the right job (something nurturing is good for Cancers, like a teacher or nurse), the right home (it’s important for a Cancerian to feel comfortable), and even the right romantic partner (someone who’s emotionally open and non-judgmental is best!).

    At the same time, astrology is so much more than your star sign. Paying attention to things like the phases of the moon and lunar and solar eclipses can help you to balance your life and plan things so that they happen at the most fruitful and beneficial time.

    For instance, if you’re planning a wedding, you might wish to tie the knot on a full moon when energy and passion are heightened.

    On the other hand, if you’re beginning a new business venture or starting a course of study, the new moon energy can help aid this new beginning and encourage positive movement toward achieving your goals.

    WHAT DO THE 12 HOUSES OF THE ZODIAC REPRESENT?

    Each house represents a different aspect of life, from romance tocareer, and every planet in your chart is nestled in both a sign and a house.

    These two placements highlight how a planet’s influence can affect your life.

    Now even we’re getting a bit confused with all of this, but according to wellandgood a good place to start is to find out which house your sun sign is in.

    To do this, just put in your birth time, place, and location into a natal chart, like this one online, and scroll down to the description of your sun sign. There, you’ll find out what house it’s in.

    According to astrologer Chani Nicholas: “The house that the sun is in within your chart tells you a key area of life in which your essential life purpose is lived out and where you need to express yourself.”

      By now, most of us are familiar with the term ‘birth chart’ and we might even know what ours is.

      But did you know that astrology can be used to check the influence of the stars on anything — not just people?

      WHAT ARE THE SYMBOLS FOR EACH STAR SIGN?

      The bizarre little symbols we see next to our horoscopes known as glyphs, represent each zodiac sign.

      While they may not immediately resemble virgins and crabs, each sign depicts the zodiac symbol it’s related to.

      Some of the more obscure symbols include Virgo’s star sign associated with a maiden, represented by an ‘M’ shape.

      The two lines in Aquarius’s glyph are thought to represent water while lovers of balance, Libra are represented by a sunrise or a set of scales.
