Zodiac Signs Conspiracy Theory Astrology

I am an Aquarius, and I love conspiracy theories. There’s just something so interesting about conspiracy theories that people believe. What's even more intriguing are the ways they come up with such logical explanations to support their belief.

Of course, I try not to get too caught up in conspiracy theories when I talk about them because I either make myself sound totally crazy arguing about what Bigfoot likes to eat or I'll get so sucked into crazy theories that I don't even know what is real after a while.

One thing I feel like I should fess up to is that I do wholly believe that aliens are real. Honestly, you'd have to be pretty closed minded to think that you're the only race of beings in the entire universe that exists.

As for something like life on Mars, even though I write about astrology and horoscope signs, I'm not totally convinced of that yet, but I do know that if you give me enough convincing evidence, I could be swayed.

Every zodiac sign believes in something different; you could argue that everyone knows at least one conspiracy theory that interests them, whether they believe it or not, but they might not totally believe it.

But I know that if something is really interesting, mysterious, or intriguing, it's easy to see how you could get sucked into that rabbit hole of becoming obsessed with that thing. Take politically-motivated conspiracy theories.

Those, in my opinion, seem to be the most popular just because the government has ALWAYS been shady (you know I'm right).

So, when people start talking about how the government brushed a bunch of suspicious things under the rug, you know damn well people are going to have a big opinion on that.

And even if you’ve always been on the fence about whether or not to believe in conspiracy theories, documentaries about them don't always help (or maybe they do).

I remember once I was watching a documentary on Bigfoot with my boyfriend, which incited a lively debate - okay, argument - about whether or not Bigfoot was real.

He's on the "maybe no" side while I'm on the "maybe yes" side, but either way, it was something we talked about alll night, simply because conspiracy theories are so interesting.

I have to say that I am more interested in conspiracy theories about extra-terrestrial life while my boyfriend, being the history nut that he is, likes the political conspiracies. But either way, it's always an interesting topic to talk about.

And based on astrology, you might find one particular conspiracy theory more interesting than the rest.

You might not totally believe it, but you are kind of obsessed with it for whatever reason. Is that a bad thing? Not necessarily, but it can lead to a lot of arguments, which, for some zodiac signs, isn't always a bad thing in itself.

So, to know what conspiracy theory you're most obsessed with based on your horoscope, keep reading.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Conspiracy Theory: The Assassination of JFK

John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963 by Lee Harvey Oswald while in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas with his wife, Jackie Kennedy. However, there have been a lot of theories floating around that Oswald was not the only shooter — and maybe not the actual shooter at all.

Many people say there could have been anywhere from 4 to 6 shooters present, and that Oswald was meant to go down for this crime in order to cover up for the real shooter. The theory goes on to say that Lyndon B. Johnson (along with people in JFK's administration at the time) wanted to be president and that he wanted to take JFK out of office after the Bay of Pigs.

LBJ and the government wanted to make money, which could be done by starting wars in Vietnam and Cuba (something JFK didn't want to do), so LBJ set up the assassination of JFK, which inevitably would lead to his presidency. You may be a pretty logical person, Aries, but you do feel like there may be some true to this conspiracy theory.

You're not exactly sure what you believe, but you can be convinced if you're faced with some pretty interesting facts. Plus, all of those documentaries on Netflix don't help in telling you otherwise. If all else, you love a good story and this certainly doesn't disappoint.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Conspiracy Theory: The Earth is flat

Flat Earth conspiracy theorists believe that Earth's shape is actually a plane- or a disk-shape rather than spherical, as the majority of people believe. This conspiracy theory was believed by many ancient cultures, including ancient Greece and the Bronze and Iron ages.

However, the modern-day Flat Earth Society has started to ramp up their beliefs even more in recent years. The most widely-held belief, especially by the Flat Earth Society, is that the Earth is actually a disc-shaped planet with ice walls surrounding it to hold the oceans in place.

As for what's beyond these ice walls? No one has yet been able to travel there and back to tell tales of their journey. All that is known is that these walls protect us from what’s beyond them. As for day and night, the sun revolves around the North Pole — simple, duh.

And gravity? The Earth constantly accelerates upwards on an infinite plane, making it feel like you're not moving at all. The thing about this conspiracy theory is that it's so absurd it has to be false, right, Taurus?

And while you may not totally believe it, you can't help but dive into the deepest parts of the Internet just to learn more. Plus, if there's one part of the Flat Earth argument you do believe, you will hold onto that forever, you stubborn little bull, you.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Conspiracy Theory: Global warming doesn't exist

The global warming conspiracy theory is thought to be mostly politically motivated. Many politicians — for a long time now — have said that global warming and climate change are two conspiracies that together are meant to work against the poor and advance certain countries while scaring others away from different industries (like the manufacturing industries). As for greenhouse gases?

Non-existent. While many scientists and sensible people understand that rising CO2 levels, a combination of greenhouse gases, and human activity all contribute to rising temperatures and damage to the atmosphere.

If there was any truth to global warming at all, it may or may not be the Earth's fault. The biggest conspiracy theory is that humans are to blame. So, keep doing what you're doing, it doesn't make a difference because climate change is a big hoax.

Global warming is a touchy subject for you, Gemini, because you so badly don't want to believe it, but like your dual personality, you like how there are multiple sides to this conspiracy theory.

So, in reality, it feels like you can pick and choose what you like most about this theory and to heck with the rest. Even if it doesn't make sense to anyone else, you will believe what you want.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Conspiracy Theory: MK-ULTRA

MK-ULTRA is the name of the mind-control research program run by the Office of Scientific Intelligence in the 1950s. The conspiracy is that United States citizens were used as test subjects in medical experiments to control the minds of people.

One such theory is that the assassin Sirhan Sirhan was hypnotized when he shot at Robert Kennedy, thanks to the work of the CIA's MK-ULTRA mind-control techniques. Another theory? Charles Manson was an honored guest and test subject of this mind-control, too.

The most commonly-held belief is that MK-ULTRA was the government's way of controlling United States citizens by testing mind-control and other techniques using chemical interrogation.

Not only could they tell people what to do, they could have them carry out acts for them and make them do pretty much anything they wanted to. As for proof, the files documenting these goings-on were destroyed, leaving no trace behind.

You can sometimes get caught up in your head, Cancer, so the thought that someone like the government could be controlling your thoughts is a little creepy, yet you can't seem to stop thinking about it.

This is a bad theory for you to obsess over because everyone knows that when you get hooked onto something, it's hard to get you to come up for air, and this one is a doozy.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Conspiracy Theory: The Illuminati and the New World Order

The New World Order is supposedly a group of powerful elite that have come together centuries ago to eventually create a government that would control the entire world.

One such group with the NWO is the Illuminati, which, as you may have already heard, have members such as Kanye West, Beyoncé, the Beatles, and other powerful people across the globe.

The aim of the Illuminati is said to take total control of the world using mind-control, fear-based propaganda, and politics. Most notably is their symbol, the pyramid, which can be found on the back of the one dollar bill, among many other buildings and seals.

You may not know it's happening, but the Illuminati is said to control everything. You are always tapped into the pop culture world, Leo, so while you may be obsessed with the Illuminati, you might also actually believe some of it, too — you just can't help yourself.

Plus, if you're going to be a famous superstar one day, you need to know what you're up against. And hey, if you get a personalized invitation to join, you want to be as informed as possible to accept.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Conspiracy Theory: Princess Diana was murdered

Princess Diana was killed in a car crash on August 31, 1997, but many believe that this isn't even half of the true story. Some of the most popular conspiracy theorists believe that Princess Diana has prior concerns about her safety and that she thought maybe there would be a planned accident involving a car crash with her in it.

While some believe it was her relationship with Mohamed al-Fayed that led the British state to feel threatened and ultimately plan the crash, or that the paparazzi intentionally created the situation where she was ultimately killed.

There are many different ways you could go with this one. What's most unfortunate is that the memory of her cannot be laid to rest until these conspiracy theories are. You're on the most serious side of conspiracy theories, Virgo, but there’s something about this one that has always had you hooked.

Maybe it was the fact that Princess Diana was more than just a princess — she was bright, a humanitarian, she wanted to change the world — that really spoke to you. But you've always wanted to dig much deeper into her tragic death to understand.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Conspiracy Theory: Crop circles

If you've ever seen the movie Signs, then you know what crop circles are — basically big concentric and intertwined circles made in corn fields. But how do those crop circles get there?

Surely, that can't be the work of a human being, right? Well, if you answered no to that question, you're probably on the side of many conspiracy theorists. The most commonly-held conspiracy theory is that crop circles are hidden messages left behind on Earth by aliens, time travelers, and the like.

It may be peaceful communications, it may be something else entirely, but one thing is for sure: it's an extra-terrestrial message because there is no way a human could make these giant shapes. The only other question to answer then is what do these entities want with us... and with Earth?

Crop circles are just plain weird, Libra, and you know it. But that's why you love it — because you can either go on a total long-winded rant about what you really believe the cause is or just shrug your shoulders and say, "who knows?" and people will still agree with you.

Plus, if anything else, it's a great conversation starter and you love sharing your opinion with someone new.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Conspiracy Theory: Paul McCartney died in 1966

This conspiracy theory actually has a similar setting for a few different people, including Avril Lavigne and Elvis Presley. But many people believe the Paul McCartney of the Beatles actually died in 1966 in a car crash and was replaced by a look-alike to continue making music and fooling the public.

His "death" is backed up by many different clues and glitches that reveal that the living McCartney is not the original McCartney. These "clues" range from statements heard when you play his songs backward, certain symbols in lyrics, and weird images on album covers.

But the kicker? Paul McCartney was the only Beatle barefoot (and apparently out of sync with the rest of the Beatles walking across the road) on the cover of the Abbey Road album. How 'bout them apples?

This is one of those conspiracy theories that inevitably leads to more and more conspiracies, Scorpio. You love this one especially because it's got a little bit of history and a little bit of music, two things you've always been a fan of. Plus, it's kind of "out there" which is most definitely something you would be caught talking excitedly about.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 19)

Conspiracy Theory: Bigfoot

Everyone loves Bigfoot, the giant Sasquatch entity that lives a secluded life. If you've ever seen that famous footage of apparently Bigfoot and sometimes a lady Bigfoot, then you know it can spark a lively debate about whether or not he is the real deal and what exactly he is.

Bigfoot itself can be considered a conspiracy theory, but if we collectively believe that he's something other than human, then the real conspiracy is figuring out what's really going on. Is he an alien? Is he a caveman? Some say both or neither.

Others say that Sasquatch himself was in the Bible at some point, but were described as giants, not hairy Yeti-type things. But whatever you believe, no one has ever been able to catch or talk to a Bigfoot (that we know of), however, imprints of feet have been made.

And there's probably more than one Bigfoot, too if you think about it. Bigfoot is special to you for a few different reasons, Sagittarius. For one, it's kind of bizarre, yet totally normal to hear someone talk about — which you love because you like being a little bit of both yourself.

But if you were so inclined, you would definitely get up and go try to find Bigfoot. Hey, you love to travel, why not try to hunt for Bigfoot while you’re at it.

CAPRICORN (December 20 - January 19)

Conspiracy Theory: Moon landing was faked

You may have heard this conspiracy at least once in your life, but many people believe that the Moon landing was faked by NASA and the government, possibly even more than once from 1969 through the early 1970s.

How were the Moon landings faked? Through the tampering of photos, radio and TV transmissions, and even witnesses. If you were ever gifted some Moon rock when you were younger, you might just have some rock... sorry to burst your bubble.

While some believe the Moon landing didn't happen at all, there are some who will argue that the Moon landing was filmed, and if it was faked, how could we see it happening, right?

Well, there is the conspiracy theory that Stanley Kubrick was involved in the film production and that everything you saw on TV was actually filmed on Earth with the help of Kubrick.

Photos have also been compared to edited versions debunking the Moon landing, but there are so many variations on this conspiracy that it's hard to really know what the truth is. You don't necessarily believe that the Moon landing was faked, Capricorn.

You're obsessed with it because there's just something so weird about the whole thing that you have to know for yourself what's true and what isn't. You're not going to the Moon yourself, but you will stare at doctored photos and watch documentaries until you can't anymore, so that's pretty similar.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Conspiracy Theory: UFO landing in Roswell

Bring up aliens in any lively debate and you're sure to have someone talk about the UFO crash-landing in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947. So many people have backed up this story by saying that they saw a disc-shaped object in the sky or on the ground after it crashed.

More importantly, that it was covered up by the government. Any aliens that crashed with the UFO was said to be autopsied at the Roswell air force base close by. But why hide the existence of aliens so thoroughly, government?

Some theorists say that the debris that crash-landed in Roswell was actually from a secret program run by the government while others say that alien autopsies were carried out well into the 1990s.

The theory that the existence of aliens has been around for centuries and, if true, then the incident at Roswell very well could have happened. As for covering it up, there's a bigger story brewing there. Leave it to you, Aquarius, to be both obsessed with aliens and believe that they exist.

Of course, when you go on one of your famously long rants to back up your belief in aliens, everyone just plays along because that's just you. But in the back of your mind, you've already connected this incident to everything else you find suspicious, which is a rabbit hole no one wants to go down.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Conspiracy Theory: Tupac Shakur is still alive

In Tupac's 1995 album, it is said that he accurately foretold his death. Only months later was he gunned down and killed while in a car with Suge Knight. This is a tough one to really believe, only because there was a witness (Suge).

Many find this a touchy subject to drag conspiracy theories into it. But for others, things just don't add up - especially for those who believe he is alive and well, living in Cuba. Some theories are that he was said to have been shot four times, yet Suge wasn't hurt at all.

Others say that he apparently wore a bullet-proof vest when he went out, yet wasn't wearing one that night. Why? The shooters were also never found, though many believe it wasn't the work of a conspiracy, but was a gang-related murder.

Like Princess Diana, this is one theory that should be laid to rest for the sake of Tupac's family. You've always been someone who loves music, Pisces, and you really like learning more about the artists you listen to.

And while this conspiracy has you even more confused than anything, you're interested to dive deep into it, maybe just for the sake of putting your questions to rest. You aren't one to get too crazy with your theories, but you are open to hearing what others think.
