Astrology is the study of the correlation between celestial and earthly events.
This subreddit contains links to articles on astrology, as well as discussions about astrological topics.
RULES: If you violate a rule, your post will be removed. Repeat offenders will be banned.
- Don’t ask questions about your personal chart or ask for a chart reading. If you have a specific question about your own chart, please post in /r/AskAstrologers instead, but readings are not allowed on either sub.
- Don’t post links to your site (or the same site) more than once every 3 days. We would rather see a collection of links to different sites on the front page, rather than just a bunch of links to articles from the same site.
- Don’t post daily or weekly horoscopes. If you’d like to post horoscopes for the signs, please post in /r/Horoscope instead.
- Starting new threads about individual zodiac signs is discouraged. Astrology is more complex than just Sun-signs, and we encourage more advanced discussions about the subject in this subreddit.
- Don’t offer services or free readings. This subreddit is for discussion and learning, not advertising consultations.
- Don’t ask for life advice based on your zodiac sign. This subreddit is for discussing astrology, not asking for advice based on Sun-signs alone.
