About this challenge

In a world filled with over 7 billion people, we are all wonderfully unique. We do share basic commonalities like favorite hobbies, musical taste, and...zodiac signs. There are 12 zodiac signs, and each has its specific traits, desires, and attitude towards life and people. Astrology is seen by many as a middle ground where we can relate based on our birth months. That leads us to the question: does your personality and sense of self match your star sign?

Enter the In The Stars Challenge and tell us about your star sign! Each of the zodiac signs possesses a distinct set of personality traits that set it apart from the rest. Whether you're a strong but stubborn Taurus, nurturing but moody Cancer, or dominant yet prideful Leo, the stars have something to say about your personality — and we want to know all about it!

Do the traits you possess match those of your zodiac? Or, do you identify more with other placements on your birth chart? Whether you consider astrology a pseudoscience or a legitimate discipline, many of us can't help but wonder about and marvel over the mysteries of the cosmos. đź’«
