Interesting Facts You Didn’t Know About Astrology

The truth is, we all have a hidden interest. Several people are addicted to astrology, while others believe in conspiracy theories.

A growing interest in the supernatural things shouldn't come as a shock in this age of scepticism; after all, there's no better way to learn about ourselves than by looking above. Here are some fascinating facts about astrology that will open your eyes:

Presidents are avid followers of astrology Here's some interesting news for you: Millennials aren't the only people who like stargazing. An astrologer was consulted by then-President Ronald Reagan of the United States before most important actions and decisions. This included Reagan's choice to proclaim his re-election. Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th president of the United States, was also a frequent horoscope quoter.

There are a lot of Scorpios in positions of power in the world The scorpion is the sign in the zodiac associated with assertiveness, determination, and intuition. What other qualities do international leaders need to have? A news publication noted that 22 Scorpios, or more than 11 percent of those in leading cabinets throughout the world, were born during the last week of October and the first week of November.

Babylon could be the birthplace of astrology Our modern understanding of astrology may be traced back to Babylon. Around the 4000s BCE, in the cultural area now known as Babylonia, some of the first astrological records were kept. The ancient Babylonians kept detailed records of planetary and stellar orbits. The astrological practises of the Greeks and the Hellenists, which have had a significant impact on modern Western astrology, may be traced back to these astrologers.

There is more than one sign It is commonly believed that people have just one astrological sign, which is determined by their actual date of birth. While this sign is called the "sun sign," there are really 12 separate "houses" and signs for each of the planets. Your sun sign, moon sign, and star sign together give insights into who you are and how you feel about everything. For your birth chart to disclose your "big three," you'll need your (most precise) birth date, birth place, and birth time.

A change in the moon's phase might affect your disposition It's not uncommon for people to suddenly break down and cry over their first love when the moon is full. Why do they do this? Studies conducted as far back as 400 B.C. attributed these changes in behaviour to our moon's gravitational influence.
