There are a lot of fun and intriguing facts to learn about astrology, astrologer, and the zodiac signs, regardless of whether you believe in astrology.
Our ancestors have been telling us about astrology since way beyond, as there has been proven science backing it up. Whether millennials or Gen Z, everyone over time trusts and believes in astrology’s power.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that there has been a surge in interest in all things magical in this age of uncertainty; there is no better way to learn about ourselves than to travel through the heavens. However, there is much more to astrology than just compatibility and birthstones; here are some interesting facts about astrology that you probably had no idea about.
Astrology is a widespread practice among presidents.
Millennials aren’t the only people who enjoy stargazing; compelling people do. When Ronald Reagan was elected President of the United States in 1980, he “consulted an astrologer before ‘nearly every major move and decision,'” including his declaration that he would run for reelection. Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States, was known to frequently quote horoscopes and maintained a copy of his birth chart in the drawing-room of the White House.
Many of the world’s most influential people are Scorpios.
The scorpion is the Zodiac sign associated with being determined, forceful, and intuitive. Is having these characteristics necessary to become a world leader? Some believe that to be the case. An examination of 190 world leaders revealed that those born under particular zodiac signs are likelier to hold positions of authority. For example, Scorpios, born between the last week of October and the last week of November, have more government leaders than any other sign, with 22 of them, or more than 11 percent of those who lead cabinets worldwide. Not only does Vice President Joe Biden have the Scorpio zodiac sign, but so do Hillary Clinton, Marie Antoinette, and Sun Yat-Sen, considered to be the “founder of modern China.” The fiery signs of Leo and Sagittarius come next on the list of zodiac signs that have led the world.
The natal chart of Hitler revealed information about his future.
An astrologer predicted that a person born on the 20th of April 1889 would one day hold a position of authority. Unfortunately, someone like that turned out to be Adolf Hitler. Another astrologer, Karl Krafft of Switzerland, also predicted that an attempt would be made on Hitler’s life. Krafft was taken into custody by the Nazis because he had correctly predicted the disastrous event. When Goebbels, the Minister of Propaganda, learned that the astrologer was not guilty, he engaged Krafft to work for the Nazi party as their official in-house astrologer. Krafft’s astrological projections were the impetus for Hitler to launch Operation Barossa, which turned out to be a highly successful offensive.
Babylon was the birthplace of astrology.
The cultural region, now known as Babylonia, had some of the earliest astrological records, dating back as far back as 4,000 BCE. The Babylonians tracked the movement of the planets and stars, and their observations were recorded. These astrologers laid the groundwork for the astrological procedures used in Hellenistic Greece and ancient Greece, which now impact Western Astrology.
Multiple signs are pointing to you.
Many people are under the impression that their zodiac sign is only determined by their date of birth. This sign is referred to as the sun sign; however, there are many others, including a sign for each planet and a house for each of the 12 astrological signs. Your sun sign, moon sign, and rising sign are known as the “big three” because they provide information about your personality, emotions, vulnerability, and how you love them. To acquire your birth chart, which will assist in revealing your “big three,” you need your birth date, birth location, and birth time (with as much precision as possible).
The moon influences your disposition.
You may find yourself suddenly sobbing on the couch over your first love while the moon is in its completion phase. According to studies dating back to 400 B.C., the moon’s pull was blamed for changes in behavior. After all, the concept that shifts in one’s mental condition were linked to cyclical variations in the moon’s phase gave rise to the term “lunatic.” This may be why Emelia informs Othello in Shakespeare’s Othello that the moon is too close to Earth and drives men insane.
