Some zodiac signs are endowed with greater psychic capacity than others, whether in their emotional capacity or in the intuitive one, it is clear that some possess much more than others.
The psychological effects of astrology
Astrology is based on the idea that the position of the planets, at the time of birth, can influence the personality of an individual. There are twelve zodiac signs Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces to which you can add further combinations given by the ascendant. The zodiac sign would also allow you to predict the future always based on the position of the stars at a given time. It is estimated that every day about 30,000 Italians turn to magicians, astrologers and visionaries with a turnover estimated at around 8 billion euros a year. It is a transversal phenomenon that involves people of all ages, education and social class. Obviously there is no scientific evidence to support astrology but this popular belief has effects on the psychological level. Astrology, in fact, can generate a series of “false beliefs” that lead an individual to seek continuous confirmation of the psychological characteristics attributed to his sign.
Today we offer you the ranking of zodiac signs from those endowed with more psychic powers and to those less gifted:
At the top we find the natives of the sign of Pisces. These people do not know their level of psychic power, but they have such a high sense of intuition that allows them to make all the right decisions and get ahead of their time. They can already anticipate other people’s phrases and thoughts and live strong connections about the news coming into their lives, already knowing regardless of whether they will be negative or positive. Their psychic ability is comparable to a small muse, resting on their shoulder and always ready to guide them in every action.
The psychic capacity of Cancer finds manifestation in their emotions. They can sense every slightest disturbance in the feelings of the people around them and can recognize lies with extreme ease. They possess extremely strong empathy, which triggers their psychic abilities and are sensitive to everything around them. They are really good at helping others understand their emotions and are perfect counselors in every area, managing to perceive as a sixth sense, what other people feel.
Libra doesn’t admit to having psychic abilities, but that doesn’t mean they don’t. They admit to being lucky, making the right choices at the right time, but doing so repeatedly goes beyond good luck, and is more like real visions. Unfortunately this sign is too lazy to hone his psychic abilities, which will therefore remain tied only to their natural predisposition.
Of all the signs, Scorpio is the one closest to the ability to read people’s minds. In fact, those who are part of this sign can not only understand what you think, but also what you hide. They detest lies and perhaps for this very reason they have developed the way of understanding the truth. They often use what they can grasp with this psychic faculty to manipulate the situation and control others, especially since they only trust themselves.
The psychic capacity of Gemini is called bilocation. In fact, they manage to exist simultaneously both in reality and in their mental realm. They may be perfectly capable of being one hundred percent engaged in one thing and in the meantime totally think of another. This characteristic makes them perpetually active and satisfies their need for continuous transformation.
Aries has the psychic gift of knowing the consequences of every action. It is a real talent to understand from the outset if something will be a success or a failure and they really always get it right. They can perceive all the small changes in situations and make a quick mental calculation of all possible results, until they get what for them represents the possible real conclusion and really they are almost always right.
Virgo manages to make a clear example of the big picture. They can look at an empty canvas and understand what on it should be there. They have a great ability to predict future threats and opportunities and are therefore able to establish paths to avoid stumbles along the way.
Leo has a real psychic alarm clock. They never need tools to be able to regulate their rhythms of life. They know exactly when to wake up and they succeed perfectly, plus they have the ability to know when it’s time to show up to someone and when to leave.
Taurus can perceive the boundary of each person. They know how far to go and when others are about to reach the breaking point. They can figure out when is the right time to be able to joke with another person and when it’s time to stop.
Sagittarius is not a very psychic sign and they are constantly surprised by things, whether they are bad or good. They do not hold back from rejoicing at every little goal just as they remain completely blinded if something goes wrong.
Capricorn is a very practical sign, it has a great business sense but even if these do not make much sense, ignoring any intuition, they will risk us the same. Sometimes it happens that a Capricorn may have a strong vision in the financial field, but he is too afraid of being judged and does nothing about it.
The last place in the category goes to Aquarius, which despite looking very psychic, especially thanks to their creativity, in reality they are not at all. In fact, they can never perceive the real intentions of the people around them.
Is the horoscope a naïve theory of personality?
For example, if an individual is from Leo he will be led from childhood to define his behavior based on the “personality” characteristics of the zodiac sign with a process of attribution of meaning with respect to the things that happen to him. Astrology can profoundly influence a person’s psychology, lead him to build a series of explanations of his own behavior and that of others, believe that certain attitudes of the partner are connected to the zodiac sign and therefore support beliefs devoid of any scientific and objective foundation.
People tend to identify with their zodiac sign to the point of confirming the goodness of certain positive or negative attitudes. For example, the sensitivity of the water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces), the concreteness of the earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn), the passion of the fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) and the dreamy appearance of the air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius). The human mind constantly tries to give meaning to the reality it observes and to continually create illusory correlations. In some ways the Zodiac is a kind of naïve theory of personality “ante litteram”.
Introverted and extroverted zodiac signs
A study conducted by Mayo, White and Eysenck (1978; Journal of Social Psychology, 105, 229-236) identified the presence of two groups of signs in the zodiac that had specific personality characteristics, in particular:
- Signs with extroversion traits (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius) born with the sun in a positive sign
- Signs with introversion traits (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces) born with the sun in a negative sign.
Another study conducted by Jan J.F. van Rooij in 1993 showed that these personality differences were present only in people who possessed knowledge of astrology. That is, only those who believed in the horoscope had these differences on the axis of introversion-extroversion. In fact, it will be the person himself to attribute a subjective meaning to the prediction a bit like it happens with the well-known quatrains of Nostradamus or the most recent with the episodes of the Simpsons that seem to have predicted any contemporary event.
