Zodiac Authenticity

Are Zodiac signs real? – A question mostly dismissed when asked, a theory shrugged off and mocked.

But what is the truth? With religious groups believing in the existence of mythical creatures and men in the sky, can the 12 divisions really be alive?

Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces are the 12 signs first created in ancient Egypt and later adopted by the Babylonians. The signs are divided into 4 sub-groups.

Fire signs: Aries, Sagittarius, Leo

Water signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

Air signs: Libra, Aquarius, Gemini

Earth signs: Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo

Like most people, I agree with the belief that you are able to make any of signs compatible with your personality. Humans love labels. Whether it be your sexuality, gender, mental state or ethnicity – people love making categories. No one can just be. Maybe it’s the natural wanting to be a part of something – to belong. This may lead people to believe they are something that they are not to fit in.

But I relate to my sign a lot. I can relate to Aquarius more than any other. Even if I were to swap all the signs names around, I would still choose Aquarius’ original description.

I know most of them are completely made up. For example, ‘What food you are most like depending on your sign‘. It’s a load of rubbish, it’s just for fun. But some of the more descriptive texts are incredibly accurate.

I stumbled across a post regarding what traits a girl holds regarding her Zodiac sign.

Mine read:

Aquarius; they love to shock you. aquarian girls will do anything to prove people wrong. they’re fiercely independent and almost always have a very large circle of friends. like Capricorn, they’re very easygoing and love to joke around. they are brutally honest and can be detached. aquarian girls will also get frustrated if they feel someone is dragging them down, they hate extra baggage.

This piece of text sums me up entirely – it’s actually scary. I showed friends and family, and they agreed. As I read through each of the other sign’s descriptions, none of them were as similar as mine. Although, I can relate to at least a few traits listed in each sign.

Maybe it is simply all in my mind, maybe it’s just a giant coincidence. Who knows. Like people say we’re living on a floating ball in a never-ending universe – anything can happen.
