When I heard about the Zodiac Signs, I wondered what is this? First of all, what is the meaning of the Zodiac Signs? So as per the internet, “it is a belt of the heavens within about 8° either side of the ecliptic, including all apparent positions of the sun, moon, and most familiar planets. It is divided into twelve equal divisions or signs (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces)”. So basically, the Zodiac means circle or cycle or round or merry-go-round which is divided into twelve equal signs.
So when I was in school, and I came across these Zodiac Signs, the first thing that came in my mind was, who will remember these names now? Because at that time, I was already learning the names of Indian months. And believe me, It’s still difficult for me to remember the names and also its spelling. And my next question which is always the same for everything, i.e. who invented these signs?
As when I grew up, I saw that many actually follow their signs. Like, they will check in the newspaper about their today’s horoscope and act accordingly the whole day. This annoys me alot. I am not against reading fortune or astrology. But stop disgracing others. If the fortune says, stay away from people whose names start from “d” (for example), People actually followed that. Whole day they will ignore friends/ relatives, even their family members whose names started from “d”. This might have given you good luck, but you ended up losing someone. So is that good luck to you?
I always wonder, what’s there in these Zodiac Signs? Why does it have an effect in our lives? Like in India we say “Shani bhaari hai, Raahu – ketu ke prabhaav hai, etc”. Does this really affect our life? Or does it affect our “mind” and hence our life? Well, this will be a big debate.
When Instagram started ruling, I came across this handle. Well, my Zodiac Sign is Virgo. To be more precise, August Virgo. Because, this handle distinguishes August Virgo and September Virgo. According to this handle, August Virgo acts differently and September Virgo acts differently. September Virgo are more dangerous than August Virgo. So I started following. Following this handle, not the sign. Some facts were so true that actually made me to like it, share it and comment on it. One such fact is “Virgos are introverts, But when you know them you will wonder, why she / he doesn’t stop talking”. Well, very true.
