Life Of A Blogger: 'Astrology'.


I have always found the idea of Astrology fascinating. Nine times out of ten, when I read 'Daily' or 'Monthly' horoscopes I laugh because I don't really believe in it. But the history and theory behind it all is really interesting. As I'm a Taurus, I'll quote a little on what Wikipedia told me about the history of this particular sign of the Zodiac.
"Taurus was the first sign of the zodiac established among the ancient Mesopotamians—who knew it as the Bull of Heaven—because it was the sign through which the sun rose on the vernal equinox. Due to the procession of the equinox, it now follows Aries. The Bull represents a strong-willed character with great perseverance and determination. In Egypt, Taurus was seen as the cow goddess Hathor. Hathor was the goddess of beauty, love, and happiness, and she represented all of the riches seen in cattle as the providers of nourishment. Roman astrologers considered Taurus ruled by Venus, the goddess of beauty. The symbol of the bull is based on the Cretan Bull, the white bull that fathered the Minotaur and was killed by Theseus."

The chart above is apparently my birth chart. I'm not entirely sure what it all means so any interpretations would be greatly appreciated! Also as it's the start of  the month,, I'll throw in my monthly Horoscope just for fun!
"The Full Moon weekend of April 4 is custom made for fun in the sunshine. You could find romance in the moonlight, too. Keep it casual, be popular, and have little competition in the world of love. Everyone may be super secretive on the New Moon of April 18, but they'll all still have a lot to say. Be entertained, but believe little of what you hear and don't automatically act on any of it. Romance may flare again on the weekend of April 25. Feel glamorous and bask in the attention. People want to treat you well, so let them get the tab."
That was a lot of fun! I can't wait to find out next week's topic!
