      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.

      WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF ASTROLOGY?

      Astrology is on the rise, especially among millennials. One of the reasons for astrology’s growing popularity is that it helps to explain the existence of different personality types and tendencies.

      Knowing your sign can help you understand why you get emotional so easily (looking at you, Cancer), or why boredom is the worst punishment imaginable to you (Gemini, anyone?).

      Or maybe you feel you’re in your natural element when you’re organising the clothes in your wardrobe by colour (quite a Virgo thing to do!).

      Knowing someone else’s sign can also help explain why another person grates on your nerves, or why you click like you’ve known each other for a million years: it’s simply written in the stars.

      A lot of people also find astrology helpful for making life decisions. If you know you’re a sensitive and devoted Cancerian, you can use this awareness to help you.

      Knowing your star sign can help you find the right job (something nurturing is good for Cancers, like a teacher or nurse), the right home (it’s important for a Cancerian to feel comfortable), and even the right romantic partner (someone who’s emotionally open and non-judgmental is best!).

      At the same time, astrology is so much more than your star sign. Paying attention to things like the phases of the moon and lunar and solar eclipses can help you to balance your life and plan things so that they happen at the most fruitful and beneficial time.

      For instance, if you’re planning a wedding, you might wish to tie the knot on a full moon when energy and passion are heightened.

      On the other hand, if you’re beginning a new business venture or starting a course of study, the new moon energy can help aid this new beginning and encourage positive movement toward achieving your goals.

      WHAT DO THE 12 HOUSES OF THE ZODIAC REPRESENT?

      Each house represents a different aspect of life, from romance tocareer, 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.”

      ASTROLOGY: NOT JUST FOR PEOPLE!

      By now, most of us are familiar with the term ‘birth chart’ and we might even know what ours is.

      But did you know that astrology can be used to check the influence of the stars on anything — not just people?

      According to an article on The Washington Post, TikTok-famous astrologer Maren Altman has been using birth charts to make predictions about cryptocurrency.

      It is her belief that birth charts can also be drawn up for the creation date of things — including bitcoin.

      So next time you’re looking for investment tips, or even advice on an ongoing project, consider checking what the stars say!

      THE STAR SIGNS DESTINED FOR FORTUNE

      Think your star sign doesn’t affect how wealthy you are? 

      It turns out you may be wrong. Although there are billionaires all over the zodiac, nearly one in FIVE are Libras.

      The second most prosperous sign is Aries, which has nine per cent of people in the top 100, such as internet leader Larry Page. 

      The next best signs are Gemini, Cancer and Capricorn, who are all tied on eight per cent of the top 100. 

      But it’s bad news for entrepreneurial Sagittariuses, as only one person in the top 100 has this sign – Chinese businessman Lei Jun.

      WHAT ARE THE SYMBOLS FOR EACH STAR SIGN?

      The bizarre little symbols we see next to our horoscopes known as glyphs, represent each zodiac sign.

      While they may not immediately resemble virgins and crabs, each sign depicts the zodiac symbol it’s related to.

      Some of the more obscure symbols include Virgo’s star sign associated with a maiden, represented by an ‘M’ shape.

      The two lines in Aquarius’s glyph are thought to represent water while lovers of balance, Libra are represented by a sunrise or a set of scales.

      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.”

      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.

      WHAT IS A VENUS SIGN?

      Basically, the function of Venus astrologically is to tell us how we gel with people and give and receive love.

      The planet of beauty, love and extreme pleasure tells us a heap of things about the kind of person we are, who we are attracted to and what turns us on.

      It tells us what type of relationship we really need and all the things that give us butterflies.

      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.”

      WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS FOR KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN, BASED ON ASTROLOGY

      Kourtney’s star sign is Aries, a sign which is usually assertive and can also be opinionated.

      Once Cancer season begins, however, the typically fiery energy of Aries may become more subdued.

      StyleCaster predicts that the emotional influence of Cancer may inspire Aries to become more focused on their home life and relationships with others.

      This month’s full moon will also bring an energy of reassessment, meaning that Kourtney could be making some big changes very soon.

      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!

      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.

      How June’s full strawberry moon will affect YOUR star sign

      This month’s full moon, also called the Strawberry Moon, will take place on June 24.

      It will happen soon after the longest day of the year (known as the summer solstice). What this means is that both the moon and the sun will be reaching the peak of their cycles at roughly the same time — an event sure to affect us all astrologically!

      This year’s Strawberry Moon will fall in the sign of Capricorn, meaning we will experience a powerful convergence of our emotions and ambitions.

      Capricorn is a sign known for its endurance, self-reliance, and groundedness. While Capricorns themselves will feel this full moon especially deeply, you can expect that each sign will be affected by this energy in some way.

      Read on to discover what June’s full moon means for your star sign!

      Aries

      This Strawberry Moon is all about your career. Energies of achievement will be at a high, so this is a good time to take on that extra dose of challenge.

      Taurus

      Take a close look at limitations, because you may find that a lot of them are unnecessarily holding you back. You are capable of even more than you believe. 

      Gemini

      You will probably feel the effects of this time internally as you come to realisations about yourself. Let the energy of this Strawberry Moon guide your personal development.

      Cancer

      Emotions will probably be felt even more deeply than usual. At the same time, your powers of foresight will be strong so it’s a good time for sitting down and making plans.

      Leo

      This Strawberry Moon will see you achieving a goal or target you have set for yourself. Make sure you take the time to appreciate how far you have come.

      Virgo

      You will find yourself feeling more ambitious than usual and setting loftier goals. Make sure you stay patient with yourself because you are probably playing the long game here.

      Libra

      This Strawberry Moon will probably inspire you to clear things out from your life: clutter, unwanted obligations, outdated goals. Stay open to new paths revealing themselves to you.

      Scorpio

      Communication could pose a challenge this full moon. Try not to get frustrated if you feel that others just don’t ‘get’ you — they will, eventually.

      Sagittarius

      Self-esteem will be on the increase for you, which means it’s a good time to take on new challenges and expand your horizons.

      Capricorn

      Since the Strawberry Moon falls in your sign, don’t be surprised if emotions seem to be at an all-time high. You can use this powerful time to re-evaluate your life and make big changes.

      Aquarius

      Creativity and intuition will be on the rise for you. Try to let go of overthinking things and let your instinct take control.

      Pisces

      This Strawberry Moon you may find yourself growing closer to friends and loved ones. Heartfelt conversations will lead to solid and lasting bonds.

      WHAT JUPITER IN RETROGRADE MEANS FOR EVERY STAR SIGN

      Aries

      Extroverted Aries may find this Jupiter retrograde season a bit challenging. You’d rather keep on going full speed ahead, but this period calls for a reassessment. Pay attention to the goals you have set yourself and be ready to let go of what you no longer need.

      Taurus

      Jupiter retrograde will probably spark some deep reflection and important change. This could prove frustrating to your sense of stability and routine, but you will get through this period with your calm acceptance.

      Gemini

      You are all about change, Gemini, so you will find adjusting to this period no problem. Use the energies of Jupiter retrograde to help you go even deeper. You can expect a lot of insight and powerful revelations this season.

      Cancer

      You are already very well connected with your inner world so this Jupiter retrograde probably won’t bring much that is new or surprising your way. At the same time, make sure you stay grounded in reality because there could be a tendency to slip off into daydreams.

      When is Jupiter in retrograde in 2021? 

      Jupiter retrograde is due to begin on June 20 and it will last until October 18, meaning that this retrograde will rule all of summer 2021 and much of autumn.

      The planet Jupiter governs our social rather than personal sphere, meaning that the effects of this retrograde will be felt on a larger scale (e.g. family, society, and the world at large). 

      But don’t worry too much — in general, it is thought that Jupiter retrograde is a time to inspire reflection, growth, and deeper thought.

      There may also be confusion and stress rising to the surface, but this is likely to stimulate positive change and lead to new opportunities opening up, so get ready!

      HOW MANY KIDS CANCER, LEO, VIRGOS WILL HAVE, ACCORDING TO STAR SIGNS

      Cancer

      This is the sign astrologers most associate with family, motherhood and homemaking so it’s fitting they’d be inclined to have a huge brood..

      The stars predict that a Cancer mum will have two children, but they will probably be born several years apart.

      Leo

      Leos love showing off their star power, so they’re more likely to want several kids who lap up the limelight, too. 

      The stars have two to four kids planned for Leos, who will take real pride in raising their pack of cubs.

      Virgo

      Having too many kids could be stressful for detail-driven Virgo, so having one mini-me may be perfect.

      With their lives planned to precision expect Virgo’s child to be well-behaved and polite, well, most of the time anyway. Find out about your sign here.

      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.

      IS ASTROLOGY GENDERED?

      There is a stereotype that charting the movement of the planets in order to divine your future is a rather feminine pursuit.

      However, according to Wired, there seems to be an ongoing increase in the number of men who are interested in astrology and the esoteric.

      This may be down to the universality of apps, the internet and social media — horoscopes are no longer relegated to the back pages of fashion magazines.

      With TikTok astrologers and horoscope apps aplenty, the secrets of your birth chart have never been more at your fingertips.

      The internet has also meant that dating culture is undergoing big changes. With not much more than a profile to go on, horoscopic info could be a useful guiding star for anyone looking for love.

      WHEN IS INTERNATIONAL ASTROLOGY DAY?

      “We are all under the same sky. Sharing both our common and diverse perspectives on how we relate to the stars is the gift of International Astrology Day.”
