IF YOU HAVEN’T noticed, many young adults on social media are absolutely obsessed with astrology. 

Twitter accounts like Poet Astrologers and Milkstrology have amassed hundreds of thousands of followers, while apps like Co-Star are increasingly popular. People aren’t just flicking to their horoscopes in the back of a telly mag to get an idea of what’s ahead of them anymore.

No, things are much more complicated now. People want full birth chart readings and don’t only check one star sign, but sometimes three: their sun, moon and rising signs.

Your sun sign is the simplified one you were looking at in the back of Kiss magazine as a teenager, while your moon sign relates to your emotions and inner self. Your rising (or ascendant) sign represents the way that others perceive you. 

If you want to find out what your moon and rising signs are (and what that means for you), give Co-Star a try, or go to one of the many websites devoted to making a report of your birth chart. 

But how do you feel about all of this astrology stuff? 

Poll Results:

I think it's all stupid and a waste of time.  (720)
I don't believe in it, but it's no harm. (675)
I'm VERY skeptical, but it's a bit of fun. (548)
I definitely believe in it.  (411)
