Astrology is easy to dismiss as quackery, I mean come on, how can celestial objects have the slightest influence on a person's destiny?

The concept was born over 2300 years ago when the ancient Babylonians came up with the idea that the gods lived among the stars, and were able to manipulate humans' personalities to suit their wishes and whimsies. So they divided the night sky into 12 separate pieces, which we now know as the signs of the zodiac, and which, according to some polls, almost a quarter of Americans still take seriously today.

But why? Well, when you read something that validates your beliefs or needs it can be tempting to legitimize it. For most of us, it's just a little fun that can bring some positivity and confidence to our lives. There are those, however, who take it way too seriously. These memes, collected by Bored Panda, are for those who should maybe take their heads out of the sky, and come back down to Earth with a laugh!

Probably we merely need a better zodiac circle. "Bitch, A*hole, Egoist, Narcist, ..."

Wel, that is how it works. Writing a few generalizations is quite a simple task - people find statements matching them, so they believe it. "You can make difficult decisions, but sometimes you are hesitant. You love your family and friends, but sometimes you find it difficult to understand them." Blah blah blah. It suits, literally, everybody - and that is a point.

For those who might wonder, this picture depicts the exact reaction former president Obama had when he went to the White House after Trump's election, also complemented by his short mental dialogue: 'Well, time to compliment my successor." *sees Trump* "You know what? F*** it, I'm out."

If somebody said something as stupid, then I guess it's right, that there isn't a match :)
