A Message Written in the Stars

April is Aries birthday month

While some of us have our heads in the clouds, others are gazing up even farther. Being captivated by the stars is something that all of us are familiar with, though some take it a few steps farther. Humanity has a history of using the stars since ancient times. People used the stars to travel, as a calendar, or to predict events.

The rotation of the Earth around the sun and its placement on its axis gives us a different view every night of the trillions of stars located trillions of miles away. And much like the moon affects the ocean’s tides, constellations affect or give you certain characteristics based on the position of the sun and other celestial bodies on the day you are born. In today’s world, you’ve probably seen astrology and horoscopes as memes related to certain characteristics that zodiac signs have on the internet.

Whether you believe in zodiac signs and horoscopes or not is all part of the fun. Wit & Delight, a blog about wellbeing and personality, offers more professional predictions for April. Based on those, The Norse Star is here to bring you some of our very own.
