    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.

    WHERE ARIES & GEMINIS SHOULD GO ON HOLIDAY

    Astrologer Lisa Stardust and Foxy Bingo have put together a list of perfect trips according to your star sign and you don't even need to leave the country.

    Gemini: Connected traveller

    Lisa says: “Being a dualistic sign, Geminis like to experience the juxtaposition of the country and the flair of big city life when travelling with their ride or die BFF. Paris is an amazing place to visit once international travel is allowed, as the countryside is a short train ride out of the bustling city giving you both in one trip.” 

    Until Paris is back on the cards, Geminis should try visiting the city of Edinburgh. This way they can enjoy all the best parts of city life while being just a walk away from the beautiful Scottish countryside.

    Aries: Independent traveller

    Lisa says: “As the most passionate sign of the zodiac, Aries will want to travel solo around the world on a budget, while documenting all the seven wonders of the world on Instagram. They’ll have the vigour to make new friends as they explore and see the wonderful places they’ve dreamed of.”  

    While waiting for the world to reopen, Scotland is a great UK destination to get yourself some solo exploration. With sights such as Ben Nevis, Inveraray Castle and the Falkirk Wheel, your Instagram feed will be the envy of all your friends.

    WHAT IS STELLIUM IN ASTROLOGY?

    According to elitedaily, a stellium occurs when you've got a collection of the same type of energy within your birth chart.

    This is when you have three or more planets in one specific zodiac sign or astrological house.

    A stellium affects our personality by making certain qualities, characteristics, and themes in your life more apparent than others.

    It makes your personality a lot stronger. In fact, a stellium is so powerful that it can potentially reduce the strength of your sun sign — if it's not in your stellium.

    You can find out if you have a stellium by entering your details into this natal chart from the AstroTwins.

    SIGN MOST LIKELY TO PICK THE RIGHT BALLS IN THE LOTTERY?

    The moment we’ve all been waiting for. Which sign is most likely to win the lottery? Well, it’s good news if you’re born in February or March.

    According to research from Lott and MailOnline, dreamy Pisces is the luckiest sign of the zodiac when it comes to winning the lottery.

    The data, which was based on those winning the top lottery jackpot, found that 11.6% of the winners were Pisces – meaning, on average, they were more likely to pick the golden ticket.

    Go-with the-flow Pisces will stumble upon extraordinarily lucky breaks and often find themselves effortlessly attracting most things on their wish list.

    SOAP STARS

    We’ve been looking at real life showmances at The Sun.

    Have you ever wondered why some soap romances look so real? Well wonder no further our friends, it’s because they are.

    In a true case of life imitating art these amorous actors carried on camping long after the director shouted ‘cut’.But what if we told you it was all scripted in their star signs? Let’s take a look at how the zodiac was in on the act.

    MOST EMOTIONAL STAR SIGN REVEALED

    Most astrologers will agree that Cancerians are the most emotional sign of the zodiac.

    We all have intense feelings, but Cancers feel emotions so strongly that wearing their heart on their shell is normal comes as second nature.

    Despite their hard shell they need a lot of reassurance, so if you're dating a Cancer, tell them how they much they mean to you and tell them again.

    We give you the same advice if you're dating a Leo, but that's because they love to hear it not because they need to.

    Even though Cancers are classic water signs, which basically means they're all up in the feeling all the time, they won't let anyone take them for a fool.

    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.

    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.

    WANT TO FIND YOUR MOON SIGN?

    While your sun sign is easy to determine – based on the date you were born – it’s a little more complicated to work out your moon sign.

    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.

    Luckily, there are Moon Sign Calculators available online, such as this one from Lunarium, which can help you work out your sign.

    ARE ‘ANGEL NUMBERS’ MORE THAN JUST A COINCIDENCE?

    Some writers say that 11.11 indicates the presence of the spirit. For some, seeing 11:11 is an auspicious sign and the numbers have magical powers themselves.

    Likewise, the number 333 has some different interpretations but it is also broadly thought to be a message from a guardian angel to tell you to keep going down the path you are.

    It is thought to offer comfort, inner-strength and encouragement.

      THE STAR SIGN MOST LIKELY TO GET MATCHES ON DATING APPS

      According to Tinder, 18-25 year olds are 29% more likely to match with someone based on a star sign than members over 25.

      What's more, those who straight up identify their sign in their bio consistently rank as a top profile feature.

      Leos may be vain, as demonstrated by the camera emoji often included in their bios, but when it comes to Tinder, they’re definitely at the top of the dating game. 

      They are the only sign to list CEO as their top job – and they’re also most likely to "Flex" in their bios. 

      They get the most "likes" and are the most likely to name their star sign in their bio. So it's safe to say they're killing it at this online dating thing.

      On the flip side, Capricorns are the least likely to include their sign in their bio.

      They’re ambitious, frequently touting their determined nature in their bios, with the inclusion of the "working out" emoji in their bios, which doesn’t leave them with much time for swiping. 

      They have the fewest swipes (right or left) of any sign.

      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.

      WANT TO BECOME A HOROSCOPE READER?

      Firstly, you need to get to grips with the basics, by reading books, reading horoscope charts and practising interpretations.

      The best next step is to get certified from a reputable school that teaches astrology.

      Then, you should determine where you’d like your career to go, be it doing individual horoscope readings, for corporate events, online or for magazines or newspapers – to name a few.

      It could be a good idea when you start out to intern or get an apprenticeship with a professional astrologer, who will be able to give you valuable guidance. 

      Once you have a solid foundation to your knowledge, you can start forging a business out of astrology, should you wish.

      WHERE DOES THE ZODIAC COME FROM?

      The Zodiac is the term used to describe the circle of 12 divisions of celestial longitude that are centred upon the path of the sun.

      The 12 divisions share the names we know as our star signs.

      The term zodiac derives from Latin zōdiacus – meaning “circle of animals”.

      Throughout history, the zodiac has been used to predict or echo characteristics of personality.

      WHY MORE MILLENIALS ARE RELYING ON HOROSCOPES

      Astrology has been around in various forms for thousands of years, but now horoscope meme machines are amassing more interest than ever.

      Tarot queen Kerry King tells us: “For some years now, astrology has played the role of therapist, counsellor and decision making aide for millennials.

      “Every generation tends to discover the stars at some point, but, for this generation, it is more than curiosity.

      “Birth charts are analysed, events like Mercury Retrograde are planned around, dating apps using astrological matching are sought.

      “In what is a very uncertain and volatile world, astrology offers structure and sense.”

      HOW DOES ASTROLOGY WORK?

      Astrology is the belief that the alignment of stars and planets affects every individual’s life depending on when they were born – from their mood to their personality to what happens in the future.

      It can be pretty complex stuff for the average person and is often referred to as “the language of the sky” – a language only astrologers understand.

      People have been studying astrology for thousands of years, and to become a horoscope reader, you need to get to grips with the basics, by reading books, reading horoscope charts and practising interpretations.

      The horoscopes is an astronomical map that shows the placement of the sun, the moon, and the planets within 12 sections of the sky—the signs of the zodiac.

      BANKING ON THE STARS: HOW MUCH MONEY WILL I MAKE ACCORDING TO MY STAR SIGN?

      American banker J.P Morgan who dominated Wall Street during the late 19th century once famously said: “Millionaires don’t use astrology, billionaires do”.

      In a time where knowing where your next pay slip is coming from is far from certain, let’s find out which signs need to keep a check on their spending and which will be laughing all the way to the bank.
