What on Earth is a Horoscope?

If you are wondering: “What on Earth is a horoscope?” you will be shocked to find that horoscopes actually have nothing to do with Earth. In fact, they deal with the stars… your stars to be specific! A horoscope is an astrological sign assigned to a person based on their date of birth. The horoscope itself is based on the planetary positions of the moon, the sun, and all of the planets in our solar system. In total there are twelve signs that a person can fall under. Everyone has their own sign, and through this sign, you can learn not only about what your personality may be like, but you can also learn about what element represents you, what Greek god you are connected to, advice based on whether you are male or female, and you can even learn what other signs you may be platonically and romantically compatible with! Through your horoscope, you can learn all about yourself and others! Before getting into each sign and its description though, I would like to note that the descriptions of personalities of the signs are purely for fun and are not to be taken seriously.
