Horoscope Sign Statistics: Inforgraphic

This infographic from the web site horoscope-sign.com presents some surprising facts about horoscope sign statistics. Some of these surprising facts about horoscope sign statistics include: 75% of astrology readers are women, 33% of Americans believe in astrology, 2 million websites come up in google search when searching for astrology, the original zodiac calendar is comprised of 18 signs, there are a total of 7000 professional astrologers in the United States alone, there are 4 different personality types, and each zodiac ecliptic is 30 degrees. So why is astrology and horoscopes so popular in the age of science and technology one may ask? One cannot really say why this would be so popular. Maybe it is because as humans, we do not want to make mistakes with our lives so we would want to consult something or someone before making a decision. Perhaps it is also because as human beings, we believe that there is a higher being who is dictating everything in this world and that this could be a good way to read that being’s mind. Whichever the case may be, the horoscope is doing good business, it has been around for some time, and may very well continue to be for quite some time.
