Do you know your zodiac sign? Find out which college programmes are suited for you according to your horoscope!
With all the stars in the sky on your side, astrology is a method of predicting mundane events based upon the assumptions of celestial bodies, particularly planets and constellations. It’s a beautiful way to understand why you are the way you are, and surprisingly fun.
Before you jump to conclusions and mention, “How could there only be 12 personalities in the entire world”, do keep in mind that, in fact, astrology is more than that. It’s a pretty common misconception but astrology actually includes multiple different combinations of 10 planets (including the sun and the moon) and the 12 signs. Each one of us has a birth chart, which is the snapshot of the positions of all the signs in the exact time, date, and place when you were born — but this is a story for another time.
There’s so much to cover in terms of astrology but this piece will just be a fun one to tickle your fancy. Before I proceed to which programmes suit you best, it’s recommended for you to find out your 3 main astrological signs according to your chart — the Sun, Moon, and Rising signs. The Sun sign is the core of your being, aka your life force or identity. The Moon sign is your inner world, your feelings and emotions. The Rising sign is how the world perceives you.
Now that you’ve discovered your Top 3 signs based on your horoscope, here are some suggestions of college programmes and even clubs that best match your signs! You can apply to all your Sun, Moon and Rising signs!
