You are always in the right place at the right time. Even your strengths and weaknesses belong to you for a reason, and they are part of your life's purpose. While there are different studies that can help explain why you are the way you are, astrology shows us how the position of celestial bodies can have an impact on our lives.

This includes everything from our personality traits to our work ethic to our likes and dislikes. All of these things can even be linked to a specific group of people based on the time frame in which they were born. So, although people born within the same time frame have never all met, they could find commonalities, according to astrology.
