Your Voice: Are Horoscopes a Hoax?

According to research conducted by astronomers, horoscopes are a part of the astronomical tradition that divides the sky into twelve sections, each of which is associated with a specific date and time. The zodiac signs are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces.

Do horoscopes work?
Despite the lack of scientific evidence to support the reliability of horoscopes, they remain a source of interest and entertainment for many people around the world. 

Some people believe that horoscopes can accurately predict their personality, behavior, and fate. Others are more skeptical, believing that horoscopes are nothing more than a form of entertainment.

First, The Clarion asked Logan McLaren, a student in business management with a concentration in digital media design, about her opinion on horoscopes.

“I check them once a week, and I can see the connection between my personality and the Cancer sign, especially as I age.” she said.

She added, “I have noticed some similarities between my behavior and the sign description, especially regarding positivity and emotional awareness.”

On the other hand, Mike, a media student, expressed more doubt. “I’m not convinced by astrology, and I haven’t noticed any correlation between my traits or behaviors and horoscope predictions, so I’d say I’m 50% hesitant about astrology,” he said.

Dynasty, a student of interior design, offered a different perspective. While she admitted that she sometimes looked at horoscopes, she did not rely on them heavily to determine her day. 

However, Dynasty noticed some similarities between her personality traits and the qualities associated with the Capricorn sign, especially regarding creativity and hard work.

With different views on astrology, discussing and arguing is still a big deal. Even if people do not believe horoscopes are accurate, they are still part of our history and culture, making life more fun and interesting. The back-and-forth between believers and doubters helps us learn more about this topic.
