The Real Reason Your Horoscope Never Seems To Fit With You

Interest in astrology has exploded over the last several years, and it makes sense as to why. It's fascinating to study yourself under a cosmic lens. It's something you have no control over, yet a lot of people find their zodiac readings to be really accurate to their lives. Your horoscope can even be good for your mental health, it can ground you in practices like meditation, and your sun sign may even be able to help you with self care. But why do some people not feel as though their horoscope doesn't fit them?

According to Stylist, your horoscope may actually relate to you even if you don't think it does. They noted that expert astrologers claim that there are five star signs that are the least likely to believe in their horoscopes. These five signs are Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, and Aries. These five signs are the most grounded, the most rooted in the earth and in their own beliefs, so they might find it the hardest to let go of those beliefs and trust in something new. If you don't believe your horoscope fits you and you fall under one of these signs, you may just have to let go and embrace the stars!

Here's what you need to do to understand your horoscope

Whether you're one of the five most grounded signs or not, there is one thing you can do to believe in your horoscope more: read more than one. According to My Life Created, a vast pool of astrologers of varying experience levels write horoscopes, whether for their own website, social media pages, or for publications, and each of them is likely different. They're all going to see something different for you in the stars. If you find one that you can connect to, you'll always have a trusty source to rely on. My Life Created also recommended going one step further and booking a horoscope reading. This will be a one-on-one session and will give much deeper insight into your zodiac chart and life than a short horoscope could.

Of course, you need to make sure you fully understand your own chart before you dismiss astrology completely. People often only know their main sign (their sun sign), but you also have a rising sign, a moon sign, and a sign for every planet outside of Earth based on when and where you were born (via Stylist)! Each sign and each planet represents something unique, so understanding your chart will help you navigate horoscopes and which ones you should connect with. Moreover, Stylist recommended knowing the signs' seasons. If you were born near the end or beginning of a sign, it's possible that you're a cusp placement, meaning you could have attributes of two signs simultaneously. For example, if you were born on December 22, you may have Sagittarius and Capricorn traits because the former ends on December 21.

Overall, astrology and horoscopes require time. If you put the work into them, their insights for you will only grow more personalized.
