HOROSCOPE. The word “horoscope” comes from a Greek that means“time and “observer.” “I find the history of horoscopes and zodiacs really interesting,” said Callie Osborn, 12. Go ahead and find what your horoscope says for you this week.

Every year, month, week, and day, people around the country look up their zodiac in order to find out what their fate will be. Some believe their horoscope to be true; others think of it as a myth.

Many believe that someone can just come up with a fake horoscope and make people believe that they will live a good life or an absolutely terrible one.

But because of their history, there is no way to get rid of them. Horoscopes were begun by the Egyptians and then adopted by many other countries and groups of people.

“There is not a way to dismiss them entirely. Humans have been using the zodiac for literally thousands of years,” according to the Huffington Post.

Also, many say that their horoscopes comes true too often to say that there cannot be some sort of truth to them.

“I am so passionate about horoscopes. I believe 100 percent that they are real. They are just so scary and accurate, so how could you not believe them?” said Callie Osborn, 12.

58 percent of millennials believe astrology to be accurate, according to Independent. They will use them as excuses for why they do certain things or act a certain way.

While some millennials believe them to be true, others believe that they are not true but are kept so vague where they can be relevant to anyone who reads them.

“I do not believe in day-to-day horoscopes because I think they are made up for entertainment. But I believe the natal charts are true,” Osborn said.

Whether astrology is true or not will be a question that people will ask for many more years and may never get the answer to.
