There are two types of people in the world: those who believe in astrology and those who don’t. The former tend to freak out whenever Mercury retrograde begins, or at least blame the phenomenon for everything that goes wrong in their life during that three-week period. They have an entire folder on their phone with Co-Star, Pattern, and other astrology apps they check on the regular. They could probably even guess your zodiac sign after talking to you for half an hour. While some people see astrology and daily horoscopes as a “for entertainment purposes only” sort of thing, others see the value of knowing your birth chart inside out. If you’ve ever wondered why some people take astrology so seriously, their zodiac sign could be the reason.

Your birth date can reveal a lot about your personality, from how hard-working you are to how likely you are to be an influencer, due to factors such as your sun sign’s element, modality, and ruling planet. When you’re looking to see which zodiac signs are most likely to believe in astrology, their ruling planet can be very influential.

For instance, Neptune rules over the spiritual realm, which includes anything seen as otherworldly like astrology. Naturally, the sign it rules over (Pisces), would have an easier time seeing the legitimacy of astrology. On the other hand, there’s Saturn, which is a very serious planet that’s all about rules, restrictions, and solid foundations. Saturn rules over earthy Capricorn, who sees all failures and successes as results of actions they’ve made themselves. They’re least likely to believe they’re having a bad week because planets are moving in certain ways.

While there are, of course, other factors that can contribute to whether someone believes in astrology or not, their sun sign can be very telling. With that, here are the three signs most likely to believe in astrology.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

If you’re looking at just the elements, earth signs as a whole would probably be the least likely to believe in astrology. After all, they’re known for being very practical and grounded in reality. However, the exception here would be Taurus, especially when it comes to love. Venus-ruled bulls are the types to Google a potential love interest’s zodiac compatibility just to see if they’re a good match. While they won’t completely write someone off if they aren’t, they’ll like knowing what they can expect from a person based on their zodiac sign.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer is known for being one of the most emotional signs in the zodiac and they know it. They’re the types to get so moved by a touching moment, they’ll burst into tears and apologize for being “such a Cancer.” Since their ruling planet is the Moon, their moods are tied to the moon’s phases. There may be times throughout the month when Cancers are a little crabbier than usual, but they will apologize afterward. Cancers also form strong bonds with their friends and family, so if their best friend is all about astrology, they likely believe in it too.

Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)

Out of all the signs in the zodiac, Pisces would be the number one sign most likely to believe in astrology. For one, they’re ruled by dreamy Neptune, who governs over all things related to spirituality. That includes intuition, psychic abilities, manifestations, fantasies, and dreams. Because of this, Pisces are very in tune with anything otherworldly, so astrology to them makes a lot of sense. They believe in it so much, they’re the type to have an astrologer or two on speed dial.
