Why do we Look to Astrology to Answer our Questions?

We've all had those moments, whether we want to admit it or not, where we're scrolling through our phones, and a video pops up about zodiac signs or universal connections. And despite our common sense telling us to just ignore it, sometimes we stay to watch what the video will tell us about destiny. Oftentimes, people will say that the stars can say a lot about our personalities or even our soulmates. Now, despite the fact that many people don't believe in astrology, it can be fascinating to talk about. The only question remaining is: why do we look at astrology to answer our questions despite logic telling us that it makes no sense?

In case you are one of those people who know absolutely nothing about astrology and just happened to wander across this article, here are the basics about astrology before we dive into the question at hand. The first people to recognize the zodiac signs were the Babylonians, who did so in the fifth century BC. In case you're wondering, the word "zodiac" comes from the Greek phrase "zoidiakos," which translates to "circle of little animals." Which of the 12 zodiac signs you were born under depends on the position of the sun at the moment of your birth. Each sign stands for a specific personality type. Additionally, the four elements of fire, earth, air, and water are associated with each sign of the zodiac.

The stars can also tell us a lot about what's going on in the vast universe - talk about fate! The stars aren't the only things that can tell us about people and things. Some astrologers think that the moon can significantly affect our feelings and actions. So next time there's a full moon, search it up, and you might just learn something. Also, in case you've been scrolling through TikTok and found some videos about the universe, you might have come across the term "mercury retrograde." During a period of Mercury Retrograde, Mercury appears to be traveling backward in the sky. Miscommunication, problems in getting around, and technical difficulties are frequently linked to it. So next time you mess something up or have a string of bad luck, blame it on Mercury Retrograde.

Getting back to the task at hand. Humans have a common trait of curiosity, and this curiosity leads us to many attempts at trying to understand that which we still do not know. So when we are faced with uncertainties in our lives, it's normal to want answers, even if we know that deep down inside these answers aren't right. When a person is confused or lost in life, they frequently turn to astrology for guidance. By providing insights into one's talents, flaws, and prospective possibilities, astrology can provide direction and assistance. So when we want certain things in life and want confirmation that those ambitions are right for us, it can be rewarding to know that despite our personal beliefs, the 'stars are in our favor.'

Astrology can help us better comprehend who we are and the people around us. Examining our astrological birth chart might reveal more about our personality traits, assets, and weaknesses. We can gain more knowledge about the individuals in our lives, including our friends, family members, and potential partners. It can sometimes be infuriating to want to know more about a person that we simply can't have access to at the moment, and sometimes astrology can offer a small insight into what the person is likely to be interested in and what they might think in regards to many aspects of life. Furthermore, whether we want to admit it or not, everyone has checked compatibilities with people through astrology websites - once more, there's no shame in it. It's just human nature.
