Analyzed astrology, compelling crystals


Celeste Casella and Marley Romero

Whether or not you believe in astrology, it’s pretty shocking how similar some people are to the descriptions of their star sign. People are different in so many ways, but one way to categorize them is by looking at their zodiac sign or the element it aligns with. Each of the twelve zodiac signs fits with one of the elements, fire, air, water, or earth. Due to Covid and us all being at home, everyone’s stress levels have been at an all-time high. The characteristics of different star signs contribute to how they deal with stress.

Fire Signs

If you’ve ever met a Sagittarius, Aries, or Leo, then you might know that they are often passionate, spontaneous, and have competitive spirits. These are the characteristics of the fire signs.

The fire signs tend to deal with their stress on their own. Sagittarius likes to keep to themselves, Leos wait until they are alone and then cry it out, and Aries tend to be self-reliant.

“I can definitely relate to a lot of characteristics that my sign is said to have. I feel like I tend to fit the stereotype of being a Sagittarius,” junior Xenia Torres said.

Air Signs

The air signs consist of Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. They like to analyze and synthesize everything around them. They are also good decision-makers.

When air signs become stressed, they tend to do the opposite of dealing. They like to procrastinate and deal with it later.

“I feel like us Libras give ourselves makeovers and rise above the stress, ” sophomore Emily Pratt said.

Water Signs
Being observant, mysterious, and creative are just some of the characteristics held by Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces, or more generally known as the water signs.

Dealing with stress can be a very emotional time for the water signs. They may take the time to cry when they start to feel anxious or stressed, but they are determined and like to take charge.

“One thing [Scorpios] are known for is being a natural leader,” sophomore Courtney Porria said. While she doesn’t take the time to study up on her sign, she does relate to the many characteristics that she’s heard about.

Earth Signs

Virgo, Capricorn, and Taurus are the most sensible and stable group of zodiac signs. They are generally known as the earth signs, and much like the water signs, they are determined and never quit.

The earth signs deal with stress a little differently than the rest of the zodiac signs. They like to keep structure in their lives, so when they feel stressed, they just continue with the flow of their routine to help them calm down.

“I align more with [the] other signs in my chart because some things I do are just not like a Virgo,” sophomore Emilia Medina said. “I don’t think I align with most of [the] characteristics.”
