References to the planetary influences at play on people are pretty common- I, myself have been known to talk frustratedly about my partner’s Venus-driven, ah, enjoyment of downtime a little too…

I have been fascinated with zodiac signs and horoscopes and the science behind it all for years. Being a Twin myself, though not identical, I’ve always wondered and questioned the zodiac chart system and how it could pertain to both me and my twin brother.

    Only one thing will be certain in the future, and that is mystery. It is this very mystery, this uncertainty about the future that provokes the mind to anticipate and predict based off of previous experiences and encounters. The mere nature of uncertainty forces individuals to actively think and foresee outcomes that will shed light on the matter.

Dante always seems to use the Zodiac as part of the scientific sphere rather than the prophetic.…
