For centuries, humans have been memorised by the mysteries in our milky-way. From bright moons to epic expositions, there’s no doubt our universe is an extraordinary place. So how can readings from the sky predict our futures? Keep reading to find out more on your star sign with Eyeko!

In today’s world, many people dedicate their behaviours to horoscopes. Also known as zodiac signs, star signs are centred around an area in the sky known as zodiac. Zodiac is the annual path which follows the sun through star constellations. Earth’s concentric movements within the north and south celestial sphere allows astrologists to specify certain objects in the zodiac sky. This indicates one way into how horoscopes are read. In our solar system we are surrounded by trillions of stars, but some are more special to us than others.

There are 12 star signs in astrology. Depending on what year, month, date and time you we’re born in will depend on which zodiac sign you fall into.
