PERSONALITY - ASTROLOGY (THE ZODIAC SIGNS) CAN ACCURATELY PREDICTPEOPLE’S PERSONALITY TRAITS2IntroductionSince the dawn of time civilizations have looked up to the skies for guidance. Thesecivilizations believed that the position of the celestial bodies like the sun, moon, and planets thata person was born under defined an individual’s personality. The celestial bodies were groupedinto twelve astrological zodiac signs with personality traits associated to them. Personalities canvary from person to person. According to LeFrançois, G. R. (2020) “in a general sense,personality can be defined as stable characteristics, including abilities, talents, habits,preferences, strengths, weaknesses, moral attributes, and predominant moods, that vary from oneperson to another” (Ch.9.1, p.1). The twelve zodiac signs associated to influence a person’spersonality are named Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius,Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces and each sign is grouped into dates that are determined based onthe Sun passing one sign to another. The zodiac signs can influence an individual’s interest,characteristics, likes, temperament, etc. While further study found that there is no correlationbetween personality types and astrological signs. An astrological zodiac sign reflects someone'spersonality because a planetary position at the time of birth can have an influence over apersonality. In addition, analysis has demonstrated that personalities can also vary based on thetime of day and sun sign positioning at time of birth.
