How did you score?
Who cares if you don’t know your north node from your noodles? You can let other people do the work for you and find out what the stars have in store without having to become an expert. You’re clearly far too busy to bury your head in books on astrology. Either that, or you’re a sceptical Capricorn who thinks it’s all nonsense (but who probably takes a sneaky peek at their stars anyhow!).
You’ve got a pretty good grip on what’s going on in the heavens. You’re probably the kind of person who doesn’t plan their life around what the stars say, but who always has a good read of their horoscope every day to see what’s in store! You’re also likely to check out the astrological compatibility between you and anyone you’ve got your eye on.
Go straight to the top of the star-chart! You’re the kind of person who likes to be in the know, and if astrology can give you the edge in terms of finding out about a person or digging deep into a situation, you’re all over it! You can probably guess people’s star signs at parties and always know when a full moon is coming in. Fabulous score!
