    By now, most of us are familiar with the term ‘birth chart’ and we might even know what ours is.

    But did you know that astrology can be used to check the influence of the stars on anything — not just people?

    According to an article on The Washington Post, TikTok-famous astrologer Maren Altman has been using birth charts to make predictions about cryptocurrency.

    It is her belief that birth charts can also be drawn up for the creation date of things — including bitcoin.

    So next time you’re looking for investment tips, or even advice on an ongoing project, consider checking what the stars say!

    Basically, the function of Venus astrologically is to tell us how we gel with people and give and receive love.

    The planet of beauty, love and extreme pleasure tells us a heap of things about the kind of person we are, who we are attracted to and what turns us on.

    It tells us what type of relationship we really need and all the things that give us butterflies.

    There's no better bond than sharing the same star sign as someone – similar traits and common ground can form the best of friendships. But for some signs, it can be hard to find someone with the same star as you. 

    Some signs aren't as common as the rest – according to YourTango, Virgo or are the most common zodiac signs, with the most common birth month said to be September. 

    The rarest sign? That's Aquarius – it's the shortest sign astrologically (January 20 to February 18) which means it has fewer birthdays.

    We all have 10 planets in our birth chart, and Neptune is one of them.

    Your sun sign shows what you want, the moon reveals what you need and Mercury reveals how you think, but what exactly does Neptune uncover?

    According to YourTango, the blue planet Neptune is associated with dreams and spirituality. It's all about tweaking our compass (sounds painful) to better ourselves.

    However while full of fantasy and whimsy, Neptune is not all fun time Frankie.

    While the planet can inspire exhilarating idealism, if we fail to reach its dizzying heights the come down can be heavy.

    However, reasoning and reality are anathema to Neptune because it's basically in charge of our hopes and dreams.Blimey, it sounds intense. To find out which sign your Neptune is in, just check in with your birth chart here.

    Most astrologers will agree that Cancerians are the most emotional sign of the zodiac.

    We all have intense feelings, but Cancers feel emotions so strongly that wearing their heart on their shell is normal comes as second nature.

    Despite their hard shell they need a lot of reassurance, so if you're dating a Cancer, tell them how they much they mean to you and tell them again.

    We give you the same advice if you're dating a Leo, but that's because they love to hear it not because they need to.

    Even though Cancers are classic water signs, which basically means they're all up in the feeling all the time, they won't let anyone take them for a fool.

    According to elitedaily, a stellium occurs when you've got a collection of the same type of energy within your birth chart.

    This is when you have three or more planets in one specific zodiac sign or astrological house.

    A stellium affects our personality by making certain qualities, characteristics, and themes in your life more apparent than others.It makes your personality a lot stronger. In fact, a stellium is so powerful that it can potentially reduce the strength of your sun sign — if it's not in your stellium.

    Each house represents a different aspect of life, from romance to career, and every planet in your chart is nestled in both a sign and a house.

    These two placements highlight how a planet’s influence can affect your life.

    Now even we're getting a bit confused with all of this, but according to wellandgood a good place to start is to find out which house your sun sign is in.

    To do this, just put in your birth time, place, and location into a natal chart, like this one online, and scroll down to the description of your sun sign. There, you’ll find out what house it’s in.

    According to astrologer Chani Nicholas: “The house that the sun is in within your chart tells you a key area of life in which your essential life purpose is lived out and where you need to express yourself.”

    The Chinese zodiac consists of 12 animal signs and the Western zodiac consists of 12 star signs.

    The story about how the Chinese Animals came about is that a race was organized by the Jade Emperor – one of the most important gods in traditional Chinese religion. 

    The Emperor invited all the animals in the world to take part. As a reward for turning up, the Emperor named a year in the zodiac after each one, while the race would determine the order each animal would be placed.

    Chinese Animals in order:  Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig.

    The ancient Egyptians contributed the idea that patterns of stars made up constellations, through which the sun appears to “move” at a specific times during the year. It's thought that all of these ideas came together when Alexander the Great conquered Egypt around 330 BC.

    It comes as no surprise that dreamy Pisces is at the top of the list. One of their strong suits is compassion, and they easily become absorbed in the feelings of others.

    They are a caring type and are concerned about the well-being of their friends and loved ones.

    Cancer is known for being a sensitive sign, and not just to their own feelings — they can easily pick up and absorb the emotions of others.

    Their strong intuition can sometimes be overwhelming because it’s almost impossible to turn off.

    To make the most of this astrological event, it’s important to take a close look at what you no longer need as well as the new seeds you wish to plant. 

    For relationships, this new moon solar eclipse brings a great opportunity to communicate more openly and honestly. Do remember to be courteous with one another (Mercury is still in retrograde, after all!), but that doesn’t mean you need to sugarcoat everything. Be honest about what you need and try to make sure you’re both on the same page. You don’t have to agree on everything, but you should try and understand where the other person is coming from.

    If something feels ‘off’, that’s your intuition speaking to you and you would do well to listen! You have to take care of yourself before worrying about the needs of others. You might find that you easily slip into reminiscence with friends and loved ones, which can be enjoyable, but make sure you don’t miss out on the present because of re-living the past.

    In terms of your home life, you might experience the strong urge to tidy, re-organise, and get rid of clutter. A change of scenery is also a good idea, so make sure you’re getting out enough and not staying cooped up indoors.

    When is Jupiter in retrograde in 2021? 

    Jupiter retrograde is due to begin on June 20 and it will last until October 18, meaning that this retrograde will rule all of summer 2021 and much of autumn.

    The planet Jupiter governs our social rather than personal sphere, meaning that the effects of this retrograde will be felt on a larger scale (e.g. family, society, and the world at large). 

    But don’t worry too much — in general, it is thought that Jupiter retrograde is a time to inspire reflection, growth, and deeper thought.

    There may also be confusion and stress rising to the surface, but this is likely to stimulate positive change and lead to new opportunities opening up, so get ready!

    When Mercury goes retrograde, it means that it appears to go backwards if you look at it from Earth. 

    It’s just an optical illusion because Mercury’s shorter orbit makes it look like it hustles past Earth, slows down and then moves in a backwards loop.

     Even so, this thrice-annual event wreaks havoc here!

    Typically, during a Mercury Retrograde, travel, communication, technology and commercial deals are all affected negatively by things like delays, glitches, crossed wires and unforeseen problems. It’s a time to lay low, simplify your life, be super vigilant and build in extra time to do everything.

    Geminis will have their world rocked most, as it’s their season and Mercury is their ruler. 

    The key thing is to stay focused on what you want to maintain, or even create, during this time, and fix your energy. 

    Remain flexible to change, but true to your priorities.

    Virgo, Pisces, and Sagittarius are the other three mutable signs (meaning they’re born, like Gemini, at the end of a season and are naturally susceptible and adaptable people). 

    This retrograde may see you finding yourself feeling disoriented, confused or cynical about changes forced upon you, but ride the wave because this uncomfortable sensation is a signal for true change. 

    You will come out of this with new insight and a stronger plan for the future. 

    Aquarius and Libra are Gemini’s fellow Air signs and are likely to benefit from the mental ~chaos~ stimulated by a retrograde, in that it will stir up as many opportunities as obstacles, and lots of new ideas and creative sparks.

    Astrologers around the world celebrate their love of the stars on March 20 which is considered the start of the astrological year.

    “We are all under the same sky. Sharing both our common and diverse perspectives on how we relate to the stars is the gift of International Astrology Day.”

    Even though power planet Pluto is the furthest away from earth it still packs a mighty punch astrologically.

    This planet's placement in our chart signifies what we need to bin in order to welcome in the shiny and new.

    According to findyourfate, Pluto is likely to bring about major changes when the beans have been spilt, babe.

    Think drunken texts, heart to hearts and horror of all horrors, hacking into bae's email account. Curiosity killed the cat for a reason dear friends.

    Pluto is also associated with things that we are holding on to in life which we should probably get rid off.

    We know we'll feel better when we do but we also know those old socks are comfortable, despite all the holes…

    Ultimately though, Pluto helps us to progress in life. At the moment the planet is bowling around the determined house of Capricorn and will be there until 2024. You can find out which sign your Pluto is in here.

    What star sign was Princess Diana?

    THE royals can sometimes seem larger than life, but the fact is they, like the rest of us, are often at the mercy of the fate woven for them in the stars.

    Princess Diana's star sign had a huge influence on the kind of person she was, so read on to find out how her horoscope played out in her life.

    What was Princess Diana's star sign?

    Princess Diana was born under the sign of Cancer. As one of the water signs in the zodiac, feelings tend to be a major driving factor in people with this sign in their birth chart.

    She became known as "the People's Princess" and this was probably due to her huge capacity for empathy – another common characteristic of Cancerians.

    Cancer is a star sign that is ruled by the moon, and so intuition and creativity also strongly feature.

    However, Cancers are known for their sensitive nature and their need for connection with others. They're not the sort who can just toughen up and take it.

    How did Princess Diana's star sign influence her life?

    Rather than outwardly seek help and support, Cancerians will tend to retreat into their shell when feeling overwhelmed.

    You may never know their true feelings until it's finally too much.

    We all know the tragic end to Princess Diana's story, but her sign also had an enormously positive influence in her life.

    Having the strong maternal instincts of a Cancer meant that a lot of energy was channelled into making sure her sons felt loved and supported.

    Her nurturing energy was also heavily directed toward the country as a whole, meaning that she is largely beloved by the people to this day.

    How did Princess Diana's star sign affect her relationships?

    Her husband Prince Charles is a Scorpio, another water sign that is known for being emotionally intense.

    Both Cancers and Scorpios long for true romance, and only relationships built on love will work for these deep-feeling signs.

    We know now that Charles was under pressure to tie the knot with Diana, and this Scorpio was never going to be satisfied with a marriage just for show.
