    WHAT IS THE RAREST ZODIAC SIGN?

    There's no better bond than sharing the same star sign as someone – similar traits and common ground can form the best of friendships. But for some signs, it can be hard to find someone with the same star as you. 

    Some signs aren't as common as the rest – according to YourTango, Virgo or are the most common zodiac signs, with the most common birth month said to be September. 

    The rarest sign? That's Aquarius – it's the shortest sign astrologically (January 20 to February 18) which means it has fewer birthdays.

    WHY IS INTERNATIONAL ASTROLOGY DAY IMPORTANT?

    Astrology has its own legion of fans all across the globe, so it's no surprise that it's been given its very own special day. 

    International Astrology Day usually falls sometime in March, with this year's celebration taking place on March 20. 

    Sure, it's an excuse to talk all things astrology and the zodiac, but the day actually holds huge importance to astrologers. They consider the day to be the beginning of the new astrological year. 

    That's why, if you hadn't noticed, horoscope pages always start with Aries.

    DID YOU KNOW DONALD TRUMP IS A GEMINI?

    Geminis like Donald Trump can be very hospitable and will go out of their way to make you feel wanted – if they like you.

    However, they also know how to play the game, and are in many senses capable of being the ultimate player.

    Spice Girl Mel B is also a Gemini and if anyone can talk for Britain, it’s Scary.

    Her larger than life personality makes her the ultimate party starter and perfect Gemini host.

    Her energy can be scattered if she’s focusing on too many things at once though.

    POWER OF PLUTO

    Even though power planet Pluto is the furthest away from earth it still packs a mighty punch astrologically.

    This planet's placement in our chart signifies what we need to bin in order to welcome in the shiny and new.

    According to findyourfate, Pluto is likely to bring about major changes when the beans have been spilt, babe.

    Think drunken texts, heart to hearts and horror of all horrors, hacking into bae's email account. Curiosity killed the cat for a reason dear friends.

    Pluto is also associated with things that we are holding on to in life which we should probably get rid off.

    We know we'll feel better when we do but we also know those old socks are comfortable, despite all the holes…Ultimately though, Pluto helps us to progress in life. At the moment the planet is bowling around the determined house of Capricorn and will be there until 2024. You can find out which sign your Pluto is in here.

    THE MEANING OF NEPTUNE IN ASTROLOGY 

    We all have 10 planets in our birth chart, and Neptune is one of them.

    Your sun sign shows what you want, the moon reveals what you need and Mercury reveals how you think, but what exactly does Neptune uncover?

    According to YourTango, the blue planet Neptune is associated with dreams and spirituality. It's all about tweaking our compass (sounds painful) to better ourselves.

    However while full of fantasy and whimsy, Neptune is not all fun time Frankie.

    While the planet can inspire exhilarating idealism, if we fail to reach its dizzying heights the come down can be heavy.

    However, reasoning and reality are anathema to Neptune because it's basically in charge of our hopes and dreams.Blimey, it sounds intense. To find out which sign your Neptune is in, just check in with your birth chart here.

    EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE CHINESE HOROSCOPE

    The Chinese zodiac consists of 12 animal signs and the Western zodiac consists of 12 star signs.

    The story about how the Chinese Animals came about is that a race was organized by the Jade Emperor – one of the most important gods in traditional Chinese religion. 

    The Emperor invited all the animals in the world to take part. As a reward for turning up, the Emperor named a year in the zodiac after each one, while the race would determine the order each animal would be placed.

    Chinese Animals in order:  Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig.

    The ancient Egyptians contributed the idea that patterns of stars made up constellations, through which the sun appears to “move” at a specific times during the year. It's thought that all of these ideas came together when Alexander the Great conquered Egypt around 330 BC.

    THE STAR SIGNS MOST LIKELY TO CHEAT

    Kerry King has revealed the star signs who are most likely to cheat, so is your partner on the list?

    According to the expert, Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Cancer, Gemini and Libra all fall on the ‘just can’t help it’ side of straying from relationships.

    She says: “Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are all Fire signs, which means they are ruled, first and foremost, by their passions. They are lusty, spontaneous, dramatic, flirtatious, and attractive.

    “Their sexual energy puts them in the danger zone for affairs, and their leaning towards living in the moment and following their heart (or other bits of their anatomy) makes them vulnerable to making bad choices. 

    “Cancer is a sucker for love, and needs huge amounts of loyalty and affection in relationships. If it’s not forthcoming at home, but is being served up elsewhere, then they are 100% tempted to head where their needs are being better met. They just need love. They are also SUPER-secretive. 

    “Gemini is an out-and-out rascal. Geminis love shiny new things, and hate to be tied down to any kind of routine or humdrum-ness, and that includes relationships. Geminis do it because they can, and because they believe if they can get away with it, then they should. YOLO. 

    “Libra is ruled by Venus, the goddess of love, and is the zodiac’s ~people pleaser~, AKA the f***boy of the cosmos.

    “Librans love to be in love, are experts at flirting, enjoy all manner of sexual foreplay, and are programmed to focus on the thrill of the chase, more than the long-term commitment part. A classic heartbreaker.”

    THE BLACK MOON CAN BOOST YOUR SEX LIFE

    Black Moon Lilith is the point in the sky that marks the furthest point of the moon’s orbit around the earth.

    Astrologers call Lilith the “dark moon.” Think unresting bitch face— the part of you that flips your lid when your chip your fresh manicure.

    Knowing your Lilith’s zodiac sign can reveal the darker side of your sexuality and where you might start crushing just a little too hard on someone.

    In an astrology chart, Lilith, also referred to as the Black Moon, represents a person’s primitive reactions and attitude – warts and all.

    LET’S TALK ABOUT LILITH

    We all know astrology involves studying the movements of the planets, as well as their mythology and overall meaning.

    However, those aren’t the only things we need to know.

    We know there are moons, rising signs and asteroids that play a vital role in understanding a person’s pysche, including their sex life – this is where little-known Lilith comes in.

    IS THERE SCIENCE BEHIND ASTROLOGY?

    Scientists claim astrology is not yet proven and that the position of stars and planets is more accurately defined as astronomy.

    Astronomy uses mathematics, physics, and chemistry in order to explain the origin and evolution of objects in the universe (including the moon, sun and planets).

    Some, however, argue astrology is different and is a natural science too, as it deals with observations and prediction of events in the sky which influences human affairs and the natural world.

    That being said, there’s said to be no conclusive evidence that astrology is backed by science, or that astrology is an accurate predictor of personality traits, future destinies or love lives, as written in Smithsonian Magazine.

    CROWN JEWELS 

    Royal family star signs – from the Queen to Meghan Markle, here’s what the zodiac says about their compatibility

    ONE way or another it's fair to say it's been a bit of a battle royal for Britain's most famous family lately.

    However, with so many different star signs among them, we can't say we're surprised. Let's take a look at the royal zodiac and find out how the boom and bust up can be explained by the stars.

    The Queen: Taurus

    Strong, graceful, and occasionally stubborn, it's no surprise The Queen is a Taurus.

    She will never give up on her country and her people and will always fight (harmoniously) for what's best.

    With a less than favourable year, the monarch has stuck to her principles of hard work and dependability while always honouring tradition.

    Sign she's least likely to get on with? Leo…

    Meghan Markle: Leo

    Not known for falling in line, Leos love the limelight and will often have careers in the entertainment industry.

    Before becoming the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan made her name as an actress, campaigner and blogger before meeting Prince Harry in 2018.

    The fire sign is known for being fiercely protective of their pride and it seems like Meghan will do everything she can to protect the ones she loves.

    Leos are also least likely to get on with The Queen's sign of Taurus. Awkward.

    Prince Harry: Virgo

    Unlike Leo, detail-driven and rule abiding Virgo is not one for fame and likes to stay out of limelight.

    Now you may not think that makes the Sussexes an unlikely match, but by accepting each other's differences Meghan and Harry can actually bring out the best in each other and become a real power couple. Oprah, anyone?

    Harry will also do anything to protect the honour of his wife, feeling it his moral duty to do so.

    Prince William: Cancer

    William is intuitive, emotional, home-loving and sensitive – all typical traits of a Cancer.

    He is also very well matched to his Capricorn wife, Kate. According to Tarot Queen Kerry King: “Together they bring what the other lacks to the relationship and together they are stronger than either would be alone."

    Cancer William will no doubt have found the recent spotlight on his family highly uncomfortable, preferring to keep family matters behind closed doors.

    Kate Middleton: Capricorn

    Celebrating their 10-year-anniversary this month the royal couple are still the perfect Zodiac match proving that opposites attract for Cancer and Capricorn.

    According to Tarot Queen Kerry King this dynamic mix helps the pair fit together perfectly. It's written in the stars!

    “Cancer and Capricorn ignite powerful, opposites attract chemistry, which has both drawn them together and kept things alive and interesting for all these years," says Kerry.

    Prince Charles: Scorpio

    Prince Charles has remained passionate about all of his interests throughout his life, both royal and non-royal, especially when it comes to the environment.

    Known for being tough-minded, Scorpio isn't afraid to stand up for what they believe in, be that love or otherwise.

    Scorpio and Charles' wife's Camilla's sign of Cancer are highly compatible. They connect emotionally, physically and intellectually.

    Once a bond has been established, the relationship tends tolast the duration.

    Princess Beatrice: Leo

    The older sister of Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice is a natural leader who is self-confident and generous.

    She married her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in July last year in what must have been one of the quietest royal weddings ever due to Covid restrictions.

    As a limelight loving Leo, this wouldn't have been the princess's first choice, but she stole the show with her beautiful red mane and stunning wedding dress, which was on loan from her grandmother, The Queen.

    Princess Eugenie: Aries

    As an Aries, the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson is confident, brave and optimistic.

    She married her Taurus husband Jack Brooksbank in 2019 and the pair welcomed their son, August, in February this year.

    While Aries and Taurus tend to live life at different speeds, Aries charging ahead and Taurus taking its time, once love is cemented it can become rock solid.

    Zara Tindall: Taurus

    Like her grandmother, Princess Anne's daughter Zara is a Taurus, making her determined, hardworking and strong.

    Zara has dedicated much of life to horse riding and represented Great Britain in the Olympics in 2012.

    She is now a mother of three children, who she shares with former rugby player Mike Tindall.

    Princess Diana: Cancer

    Deeply private and caring, Princess Diana was a true Cancer.

    Seriously affected by the emotions of herself and those around her, this down-to-earth princess preferred to conduct her life in private.

    Devoted to her charity work, Princess Diana was the ultimate example of how to take care of business in unparalleled style.

    WHAT DO THE 12 HOUSES OF THE ZODIAC REPRESENT?

    Each house represents a different aspect of life, from romance to career, and every planet in your chart is nestled in both a sign and a house.

    These two placements highlight how a planet’s influence can affect your life.

    Now even we're getting a bit confused with all of this, but according to wellandgood a good place to start is to find out which house your sun sign is in.

    To do this, just put in your birth time, place, and location into a natal chart, like this one online, and scroll down to the description of your sun sign. There, you’ll find out what house it’s in.

    According to astrologer Chani Nicholas: “The house that the sun is in within your chart tells you a key area of life in which your essential life purpose is lived out and where you need to express yourself.”

    SIGN OF THINGS TO COME 

    Moon sign dates: What are my sun and moon signs?

    ASTROLOGERS believe we all have both a moon and a sun sign, revealing our inner needs and outer drive. That explains that then!

    Here is what we know about the two zodiac readings, and how you can navigate them.

    What is my sun sign?

    In astrology, your sun sign is what most people consider their star sign.

    The sun sign dictates your zodiac personality, and is influenced by your day and month of birth.

    Astrologists say the sun sign shows what you want, and the moon reveals what you need.

    Star signs are linked to certain traits, both positive and negative.

    You can find out your star sign simply by seeing when your birthday falls in the dates below.

    • Aries: March 21 – April 19
    • Taurus: April 20 – May 20
    • Gemini: May 21 – June 20
    • Cancer: June 21 – July 22
    • Leo: July 23 – August 22
    • Virgo: August 23 – September 22
    • Libra: September 23 – October 22
    • Scorpio: October 23 – November 21
    • Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21
    • Capricorn: December 22 – January 19
    • Aquarius: January 20 – February 18
    • Pisces: February 19 – March 20

    What is my moon sign?

    The moon sign is considered the second most important influence in your horoscope chart after the sun.

    It represents your emotions, your inner mood.

    According to starslikeyou.com: "In many ways, your moon sign will describe what you do naturally, and your sun sign will point to what you will develop, as well as who you must become."

    Your moon sign is determined by calculating your full date, place and time of birth and finding your position around the moon.

    It moves quickly around the zodiac, visiting each sign for around two to two and a half days.

    Your moon sign is likely to be different from your sun sign – i.e. you might be a Taurus, but your lunar sign might be in Sagittarius.

    You can have your moon sign calculated here.

    Which are compatible?

    Love is a complex thing… and so are the ways of the stars.

    Check out this handy grid from Cafe Astrology to see if your sign matches up with your beloved – it can be used for both sun and moon signs, though separately.


    HOW KATE AND WILL’S HOROSCOPES SHOW THEIR LOVE IS STRONGER THAN EVER

    Kate (Capricorn) and William (Cancer) are a perfect astrological match as they are opposite signs.

    According to tarot queen Kerry King this dynamic mix helps the pair fit together perfectly. It’s written in the stars!

    “Cancer and Capricorn ignite powerful, opposites attract chemistry, which has both drawn them together and kept things alive and interesting for all these years,” says Kerry.

    “William is intuitive, emotional, home-loving and sensitive while Kate is practical, stoic, ambitious and determined.

    “Together they bring what the other lacks to the relationship and together they are stronger than either would be alone. A true power couple.”

      YOUR LUCKY COLOURS ACCORDING TO YOUR STAR SIGN

      According to astrologer K C Gupta, every colour has an impact on our lives and there’s colours that are lucky for every star sign and others that each sign should avoid.

      The Holi Horoscope is inspired by the Hindu festival Holi where people take part by throwing coloured powder at each other – the powder, known as gulal, is thought to intoxicate people so their religion and social status don’t matter.

      Here’s what’s in store for your Holi Horoscope for 2021:

      Aries – As Aries is an “energetic and enthusiastic” star sign, the expert says you should gravitate towards reds, yellows and greens to bring “harmony” into your life.

      Colour to avoid: Black

      Taurus – People with the Taurus star sign have a shared love of beautiful things, according to K C Gupta. And so you naturally choose the colours green, pink whites and blue.

      Colour to avoid: Red

      Libra – Libras love the Holi festival and have their celebrations all planned out. In order to match their organised personality, the expert says you should pick lavender, violet, and baby blues to spread the joy of the festival.

      Colour to avoid: Green and Yellow

      WHICH CELEBS HAVE STAR SIGN TATTOOS?

      Zodiac sign tattoos are one of the most popular ink choices especially among celebs.

      Pop diva Rihanna adores the astrological art getting a glyph of her star sign Pisces tattooed behind her right ear in one of her first ink sessions.

      Eco-superstar Jessica Alba also paid close attention to the tattoo trend using her children’s zodiac signs as inspiration to add to her collection of ink.

      Free-spirited Sagittarius Miley Cyrus meanwhile opted to put her gorgeous glyph on the inside of her arm. Hopefully it protected her from all those wrecking balls!

      WOULD YOU MAKE FINANCIAL DECISIONS BASED ON YOUR HOROSCOPE?

      More than half of Brits admit to turning to their horoscopes before making important financial decisions and life choices based on ‘advice’ associated with the zodiac sign.

      Astrologer, Francesca Oddie, said: “People really identify with their star sign and consider astrology a reliable tool for guidance.

      “When it comes to our finances, our horoscope can help us to understand characteristic traits that are reflected in our money management style.”

      In a poll of 2,000 adults, 48 per cent said they are influenced by their star sign’s predictions, with one in three adults using the advice from their sign to make life decisions.

      The research, commissioned by Barclays, found that Aquarius is the most financially confident star sign – with 42 per cent feeling happy with their money managing skills, compared to just 25 per cent of Libras.

      Meanwhile, Virgos are most likely to meet the financial goals they set for themselves and Sagittarians feel most out of touch with their finances as they avoid looking at them.
