Astrology Questions: How Much Do You Know? Find Out!

Updated on July 24, 2016

Horoscope Quiz

Did you know that approximately 33% of Americans believe in astrology? But even if you know nothing else about astrology, you probably know your Sun sign. This horoscope quiz will test your knowledge of this esoteric subject. If you've ever ordered an astrological chart, you'll probably do better on this little star sign test than someone who hasn't. You familiar with the Zodiac symbols? Perhaps you've seen them on the Entertainment section of the newspaper, or even on a restaurant menu. The questions here won't be as difficult as you might imagine. Even if you've never picked up a book on horoscopes, you might be able to deduce the correct answers to 4-5 questions in this horoscope quiz based only on your knowledge of the Solar System. If you or a family member or friend has had a passing interest in astrology, or you have a passing interest in New Age subjects, you might get 6 to 8 of these questions correct. And if you've read my other lens, Real Astrology: Can It Predict Your Future? which recounts my personal journey from skeptic to believer, you will probably score 100%...because the answers to each of these horoscope quiz questions can be found in that lens.  Believers, and even skeptics--openminded ones--will enjoy listening to the surprising CBC radio interview with Harvard-educated Dr. Richard Tarnas conducted by Tapestry's skeptical host Mary Hynes which you'll find further down this lens.

Hope you enjoy my trivia questions and answers! If you do, you can challenge Facebook friends by clicking on the FB icon up above. Google Plus users can also share via Google by clicking the Plus1 at top right if desired. Thank you! And if this lens piques your interest in Astrology, do check out the website of Astrodienst, based in Zurich, Switzerland, where you can see a variety of computer-generated FREE astrological charts.

CBC Radio's "Tapestry" Host Mary Hynes Interviews Dr. Richard Tarnas - Author Of The Book, "Cosmos And Psyche: Intimations Of A New World"

March 19, 2005

Canadian Broadcasting Company's Mary Hynes Interviews scholar Dr Richard Tarnas on CBC Radio's Tapestry.

Ms Hynes' introduction: "Every now and then a book about astrology lands on Tapestry's doorstep. As soon as one comes in, it goes out. Right into the give-away pile. Astrology might be good for a laugh but it's not something you're going to hear about on CBC Radio!

So, here's the problem. One day, a book lands on our doorstep. It's about astrology, but it's written by a highly respected scholar - whose last book was praised by the likes of Joseph Campbell and Huston Smith. His name is Richard Tarnas and the book is called "Cosmos And Psyche" . There's only one option - interview him! You'll hear the results on this week's Tapestry."

Listen to the once skeptical Ms. Hynes' extremely interesting interview with Dr Tarnas, HERE. Will he change your mind, too?

You can buy the Kindle book from Amazon.com, below.

Cosmos and Psyche: Intimations of a New World View
Cosmos and Psyche: Intimations of a New World View

Harvard-educated scholar Dr. Richard Tarnas, author of the book you see here convinced skeptical CBC radio host that the planets may, in fact, have a major bearing on what goes on down here. Will he convince you, too? Listen to the interview, above, and then learn more in this Kindle book!

Planets in Transit by Rob Hand

Planets in Transit: Life Cycles for Living
Planets in Transit: Life Cycles for Living

What does the future hold for you? Rob Hand's book, Planets in Transit, offers illuminating indepth descriptions of each and every transit to your natal planets with suggestions on how to deal with them. A must-have for anyone interested in astrology. This was one of the first books on the subject that I purchased after having my chart cast. It shook my world to its core with its accuracy; so much so that I became frightened and threw it in the trash. A few months later, I purchased another copy which became so dogearred over the years that I had to purchase a replacement. Click on the Astrodienst link in my intro paragraph above to construct a FREE natal chart (you enter place, date and time of birth, Astrodienst does the rest), print it out, then use this book to find out what it all means! You'll also need an Ephemeris (google "ephemeris" and the year to find a free one online) to see the daily positions of the transiting planets...or return to Astrodienst where you can also find the planetary positions for any date. I'm guessing you will be as fascinated as I was...and continue to be.

 

What Is Your Sun Sign?

When people ask, "What's your sign?," what they are really asking (even if they are unaware of it) is, "What sign is the Sun in in your chart?"

      I stopped taking the test. I assumed it would be knowledge of sun signs not house and planets which most people aren't going to know much about. Not that helpful really.

      This was interesting Swisstoon. My mother used to always be into that very seriously, doing readings and all of that, and I learned quite a bit from her without trying. I dabbled in it after she left.

      I thought that I would at least get a 50% in the quiz, but I only made 30%. I voted it up, shared and pinned it.

      Thanks for taking my quiz, Itaya! The secret to doing well on that test is to wait til your horoscope tells you it's a good day for test-taking! :)

      Been 30+ years since I read up and did any charts so for me to get 70% was ok with me. I've come to the conclusion however that the Law of Attraction is more powerful and is the real reason that astrology seems to be able to predict our lives. ;-)

      @jolou: Thanks for stopping by, Joanne! You can learn a bit more about the subject by taking a look at my Real Astrology lens. It's about what happened when I finally delved into it a bit. You could say it was a lifesaver! And for a laugh or two, I'd recommend your funny baby video lens. It's bound to put a smile on the face of anyone who visits.

      @MargoPArrowsmith: Thanks for taking the quiz, Margo. You can learn a bit more about the subject by visiting my Real Astrology lens. Most people form an opinion of astrology based on the horoscopes they find in their daily newspapers. But there is much much more to it. I was a skeptic until I took a closer look.
