For a good portion of human history, people have believed that the stars guide us and shape us. The entire zodiac is based around the idea that there's some cosmic significance to when you were born and the movement of heavenly bodies can affect your personality and even our destiny. Cue the spooky music. Now whether you believe that or not, you can't deny that there's a certain gravity to being able to look up at a clear night sky and pick out these amazing patterns that are actually made up of stars? Massive balls of flaming gases like our own sun that exist across the galaxy from us, warming up their own planets and maybe even bringing daylight to other beings on other worlds. That's amazing!
We've assigned names and personalities to the constellations we can see down here on Earth to make them easier to pick out and remember. And whether you believe in any cosmic power at all or not, they definitely have some stories and history. Maybe those relate to you in some way, too. In fact, we're willing to bet they do in ways you don't even realize. Like, with your food choices. We bet if you tell us what foods you like and dislike, we can match you up with some of those constellations so you'll always know where you belong in the night sky. Take the quiz and see!
