5 Ways Astrology Shapes Your Life

Into astrology? If not, it’s possible you should be, especially when bridging connections to other people. In fact, just knowing someone’s zodiac sign can tell you a lot about that person—things you will probably want to know before fostering any kind of relationship. The Big 5 personality theory in astrology says that your sign influences five huge personality factors. Check them out below.

1. Openness to Experience

How curious are you to try new things? Or, would you consider yourself relatively satisfied to live a consistent life? Your astrological sign may have some influence over this particular personality trait. Some theories suggest that air signs are more open to new experiences or patterns of thought, which would be Pisces, Gemini, Aquarius, and Sagittarius.

2. Conscientiousness

The more conscientious you are as a person, the more in tune you can be with others. You will be more mindful of other people and how what you say, do, or feel can affect them. Conscientious people tend to be highly self-disciplined, are great with foresight, and are often perceived as mature for their age, possibly even referred to as an “old soul.” Certain zodiac signs tend to be more conscientious than others, including Capricorn, Virgo, Taurus, and Leo.

3. Extraversion

Extroverted people are more open with their inner dialogues and thoughts. This means you are outspoken, don’t hesitate to share your opinion, and potentially let some things slip out without a lot of forethought. You may have a larger social circle than most—it is not at all uncommon for extroverts to be deemed as social butterflies who can talk to just about anyone. A few zodiac signs top the list when it comes to this particular personality trait: Aries, Scorpio, Libra, and Aquarius.

4. Agreeableness

Can you go with the flow fairly easily? Maybe you refrain from rocking the boat on most occasions or can fit in with just about any group of people. Agreeable people have no trouble being altruistic and warm. Most are honest and come off as courteous and highly authentic. If this happens to be the case, you may fall under one of the more agreeable zodiac signs, such as Aquarius, Pisces, and Cancer.

5. Neuroticism

Neurotic people tend to be a little less emotionally stable. They can be happy with all things life in one moment and drawn into the depths of sorrow because of a sad thought the next. Neurotic people can also be quick to express their emotions openly, which often lands them with the frustrating “moody” title. Nevertheless, the more neurotic you are, the more likely you are to also be exceptionally creative in multiple areas. The most neurotic signs of the zodiac? Cancer, Capricorn, and Aries.

So, what’s your sign—does the theory fit?

No matter how you look at it, our zodiac sign could set the stage for what your life looks like. In reality, most people have different levels of all five personality traits, regardless of their zodiac sign. What do you think—does your sign match your personality?
