Star signs have become the new hot topic, but what actually is astrology? Thrillz investigates.

Who is Marjorie Orr?

Marjorie Orr was born in Glasgow, Scotland on September 9th in 1944 and is known to be the world's most famous and talented Astrologer with her daily posts and readings, however astrology was never the career path she intended to go down. Marjorie went through a number of different jobs at the start, her first ever role was a Journalist, then a TV producer for BBC and finally a physiotherapist.

She finally gave up her role in TV and decided to pursue her philosophy degree and interests, taking the steps and pursuing astrology as a full time career rather than a small hobby.

What is Astrology?

Astrology is the study and a method of predicting future events that will occur in an individual's life, they are influenced by the energy from the sun, moon, stars and planets specifically at the time of people’s birth. Many people will understand astrology as their 'zodiac sign' which is the month they were born. Their date and time of birth are used to determine their personality, economic fortunes, emotional struggles, how their current relationship or even future relationships will pan out and much more.

As there are 12 months in a year, this means there are also 12 zodiac signs which belong to four elements: air, fire, water and earth. Each sign represents different characteristics and traits of an individual's personality, desires and attitudes. They also have their own strengths and weaknesses.

Astrology in today's world has recently become a more popular topic of conversation, with more people gaining interest in what their future holds. However, astrology dates back all the way to Mesopotamian times and the Assyrians, who were the cradle of civilization, dating back to almost 10,000 years ago (BC). It has been said that the Assyrians studied the sun, moon and planets extremely carefully, looking for good or bad omens; however, Assyrian astrology was only used and related to affairs of the state not to individuals (except for the royal family).
