Astrology is the study of the movement of celestial bodies and how they influence human and their behaviors. And although many people don’t believe that there’s any truth to it, sometimes, we find our answers in the stars, just like the people in our stories.
They’ve been witness to some rather crazy coincidences that can only be explained by astrology. If you’re a lover of this kind of study or are just curious to see if there’s actually something to it, go ahead and read these stories. These are the 31 times when astrology was eerily accurate.
31. The Pisces Love Connections
My first kiss, first major crush, first boyfriend, and first time were all Pisces born within the same week, and I’m a Scorpio.
I didn’t even realize the Pisces connection until after I was involved with these people, so I think it’s too creepy of a coincidence to dismiss. I’m the type of person who isn’t even religious because I’m a skeptic, but I like astrology, so I don’t really care about rationalizing the “truth” of it.
30. Rising Predictions
As a Capricorn moon, I can spot other Capricorn moons really easily; I have no idea how but I can just ‘feel’ when someone is a Capricorn moon.
One rising I can always predict is Leo, and if it’s not their rising then usually it’s their moon; normally they have either very lovely hair (like a lion’s mane), or they just have the “love me” aura about them.
29. It’s a Pisces Thing
A couple of months ago, at an out of state concert, a complete stranger walked up to me and said, “You’re a Pisces, aren’t you?” I geeked out a little bit because 1) I am in fact a Pisces and 2) this girl had no idea the extent of how into this stuff I m, and it’s rare that someone ever approaches me about astrology. But the confidence in the way she asked me was unreal. I’ve accurately guessed people’s signs many times, but usually, I just guess in my head so that I don’t look stupid if I’m wrong.
I asked her how she knew and she said she could tell by the way I dressed, danced, carried myself. We were talking for an hour and eventually she kissed me, but I ended up losing her at some point. She was a fiery Aries with a Pisces rising. Sigh. The one that got away!
28. The Traits Say It All
Every Aquarius I’ve ever known has had the same combo of negative traits that I hate immensely.
I don’t try to guess signs, but when this combo comes about, I make sure to find out and it is always an Aquarius sun.
27. The Accurate Readings
My mom does some amateur astrology. She learned it on her own by reading books and picking up things from here and there. What baffles me is that her readings are almost always correct. I fail to explain how she manages to tell the personality of a person just by reading their charts. She needs two things to tell you about anyone: their time of birth and place of birth.
So to test her, I gave her my friends’ information. What she read out was more than 80% correct. She explained their personality and I kid you not, they were absolutely correct. Moreover, she doesn’t even know these guys. After I informed my friends about the readings, suddenly everyone wanted to meet my mom.
26. Mercury Retrograde and Taurus Moons
Two days later, I wound up finding an old fling on a dating app and meeting up with him. I was infatuated for a couple of weeks and now I’m kind of seeing that he’s still the same person he was then, and it probably isn’t going to work out for the same reasons it didn’t four years ago. It’s actually floored me how ‘stereotypical’ this Venus retrograde has been for me.
24. “You’re A Scorpio, Aren’t You?”
I’m a Pisces, and I can almost ALWAYS tell when I’m talking to a Scorpio because of their eyes. There’s just something about the connection between and Pisces and a Scorpio that is incredibly intense and unlike anything else.
I’ve freaked a few of them out after just a few minutes of the conversation by saying, “You’re a Scorpio, aren’t you?”
23. A Love of Water
I have a water dominant chart and I have a water problem. Some people tend not to shower when they’re upset or depressed, but I’ll shower compulsively if I’m feeling off; it’s like a ‘reset’ for my brain and makes me feel peaceful and grounded.
I think one time I had a really bad day and I took five or six showers. I drink a lot of water, too. Both my fire-dom roommates don’t drink any water ever and that’s just wild to me.
22. Same Birthday, Same Personality
My last real boyfriend was born on the same day as me, just three years earlier. It was weird how much we thought alike.
He was one of the few people who I didn’t feel like I needed to say anything to, to be understood.
21. My First Prediction
When I first started learning about astrology, I looked at my brother’s chart right before he was about to go on a motorcycle trip with some of his buddies. Transit Mars was in his third house, making hard aspects to Saturn and Pluto. I warned him that he might be in a wreck and unfortunately he was. But, he was wearing his helmet — normally he doesn’t like to wear a helmet, and he was going slower than usual at the time, too, so he was injured but not as bad as he could’ve been, all things considered.
I like to think my warning to him was the reason for him wearing his helmet, but of course, he’ll never give me credit. But, as first correct predictions go, it was a scary one.
20. An Eclipse Fluke
I’m a Taurus and I had quite an intense lunar eclipse. A few days prior to the eclipse, I ended up meeting a guy through an event that felt important. I had no idea we had matched on a dating site the day before and didn’t recognize him, but he did, didn’t say anything and messaged me the day after.
The following day, we chatted a little bit and it was very pleasant but nothing super special. The day after that — the day of the eclipse — we ended up chatting for 10 hours straight; it was very intense and personal. After this chat, I felt overwhelmed by my feelings and couldn’t even sleep. The following day, I tried to start a conversation again and it was short, one-sentence answers- that’s it. I decided it was a weird eclipse fluke.
19. Past and Present Lives
The craziest stuff to reinforce my beliefs came from a reading I had done. The reader checked my life’s purpose, past life stuff, and a few other things in regards to my chart. In my past life, I was a huge worker’s rights advocate. Today, I’m in grad school for social welfare and wanting to focus on worker’s rights and community well-being.
However, she told me my purpose in this life was 100% supposed to be creative/artsy endeavors and that I had all the placements to make a good diviner, too. Now, I’m artsy-fartsy in my free time, but I’m pretty novice and embarrassed by most of my work. My undergraduate degree was in film, but I never thought it was a real path for me, so I switched to my other passion.
18. Capricorn Sun and Moon
I have Capricorn sun and moon.
My entire life, from my childhood, I’ve been asked why I’m always so serious and why I don’t smile more.
17. Coincidence or What?
Lately, I’ve been having many experiences confirming astrology. I thought it was bogus until I started reading further. This week has been confirming though. I ran into an ex-love again late last night, right as Mercury is going into retrograde and the full moon in Gemini (this is someone I met spontaneously in the first place).
The last time I ran into him randomly was on the night of the summer solstice. It was so weird, but there is definitely something aligning my path with this person who was once a stranger.
16. Inherited Star Signs
Once I read that in many cases, Pisces Moons are inherited from your mother.
I have that moon, so I went to check my mother’s chart and there it was — she’s also Pisces Moon.
15. Every Mercury Retrograde
Every Mercury retrograde, the machines at work stop working and we have to call a tech.
Mind you, only in Mercury retrograde and always in the first week of it. There are eight machines and about six of them usually crash; all for various reasons, no similarities, but it’s like clockwork.
14. The Cancer Moons
I almost always cry during Cancer Moons, at least in the past several Cancer Moons.
It’s to the point where whenever I’m crying very emotionally, I know it must be a Cancer Moon and it always is.
13. Retrograde Day
The day that made me think there’s something to this astrology stuff was what I’ve called ‘Retrograde Day.’ This happened a few years ago and I wish I’d written down the date and what planets were where. Anyway, I had to go into town for a meeting, which is normally no big deal. I went to the subway station as usual, but the street was blocked off by emergency vehicles and it was chaos. I went to the next station, where the train was still running and got on my way.
When I got back into the street, I had to walk for about 15 minutes to get where I was going. It was a nice warm day, no bad weather, no problem. Well, in those 15 minutes, I saw the results of three traffic accidents. One of a car that smashed into a convenience store, and two separate accidents where cars ran over the curb and into city benches! Fortunately, no serious injuries in any of these, but, I don’t know what was up that day. Throughout the day, I heard people talk about the roads being completely crazy throughout my city, which was so weird because the weather was fine. I learned later that four planets had entered retrograde that morning, including Mars and Mercury.
12. Feeling the Nerves
The Venus retrograde made me realize that I’m officially over a bad break up from years ago.
The Saturn retrograde coincides with my vacation from the last few months of intense work; there’s no sign of what Mercury is up to yet. And the full moon has just made me feel kind of nervous for no reason.
11. It Was the Same Day
I’ve always been interested in astrology and use it alongside my tarot practice regularly.
However, I recently looked back at my sign’s previous month summary out of curiosity and found out that a day that was supposed to be pivotal for new beginnings and standing up for myself was the same day that I had decided to walk out of an abusive job.
10. Retrograde Incidents
I broke something (electronic) the morning the Mercury retrograde started; my partner flipped the kitchen light switch like usual and two bulbs in the chandelier exploded, later his phone died right when he needed to look at something, and later he misplaced it and we had to search for it.
I’ve made a list of things to do during this retrograde. I always take the opportunity to clean out my phone (delete old photos, organize files, back things up, etc.) and consider any abandoned projects I want to finish.
9. Feeling the Venus Retrograde
I definitely felt the Venus retrograde!
The whole time I was SERIOUSLY considering leaving my boyfriend of three years because I was fed up with the usual crap. But when it moved out of retrograde, those feelings almost disappeared!
8. An Astrology Win
I’m a go-go dancer and I interact with patrons pretty heavily to get tips. I’d go as far to say that what I do goes a little beyond your usual go-go dancing on a box. Last night, I had my sun in the eighth house and Venus and Mars in Leo in my seventh. I predicted that this would make for good tips.
I felt tired early in the night and felt like I wasn’t keeping up as well as I normally did, but I made RECORD CASH. Even on a holiday weekend when most people are away on vacation! I danced no better than I have the last year. I’m calling this an astrology win.
7. The Planets Have A Pull
My whole life, I always thought astrology was kind of a sham and never identified with my sun sign and always thought horoscopes were pretty bogus.
As soon as I learned about Saturn, and soon afterward felt a very real, external force which caused me to scorch everything I had spent my entire 20s building, and launched me into a long period of absolute demolition, I couldn’t deny that the planets have a pull on us.
6. Their Charts Explain It All
Every time I notice someone is a little stubborn or mean, I always check their charts and it explains them head to toe.
Most of the time, it’s just that they’re hard-shelled because they fear rejection or being wrong.
5. A Family That Pays Attention to the Signs
I forgot what House shows you what sign you’ll marry, but both of my parents, aunts and uncles and my grandparents have the correct signs.
Also, from reading things about gaining an inheritance at a young age, I got the inheritance almost a year ago. There are just a bunch, some relating to events and some relating to personality traits that aren’t cliché or vague.
4. Libra Rising
My friend was driving me to an appointment (she has five planets in Libra, plus a Libra Rising). We were coming up to an intersection, so I said to go right, she said no, it was left.
We went back and forth for a few seconds and the light turned green and she went straight! This is a true story.
3. Personality Traits and Signs
I’ve come to realize the Venus sign has a much bigger impact on the personality and how we’re seen by others than I originally thought. I think I started to figure this out with my boyfriend, who has EVERY personal planet in Capricorn, except his Venus, which is in Pisces.
For someone with four personal planets in Capricorn, he has a very pronounced empathetic and soft side and is very kind to everyone. This is how most of his friends and family see him. He gets emotionally affected by certain things (mostly humanitarian, or animals) that even I don’t get very affected by.
2. The Moment It All Made Sense
A Capricorn moon here and I was more shocked by how much more my life started to make sense after I learned my moon sign. I’m a Cancer sun, and I’ve resonated a lot with my sun sign, but when reading my moon sign, it was eye-opening in explaining all those deep, dark tendencies.
I’ve always had them, but never really understood or consciously thought too much about. I can range from being sensitive and emotionally all over the place, to being so detached I have a hard time feeling anything.
1. The Perfect Sign
I am the most Leo-like Leo I have ever met. I’m fiercely loyalty, I have only-child-attention expectations like whoa, and I’m loud as hell.
I don’t even really believe in horoscopes, but my personality archetype is perfect for my sign.
