About This Quiz

Knowing what the future holds is one of the most sought-after talents. Stock market prognosticators are paid huge fortunes to predict just when specific sections of the economy may rise and fall, and even they can't do this without the aid of complicated computer models and masses of data gleaned from thousands of sources.

Often it can feel like we don't have any control over our destiny. So many things are outside our circles of influence, but that doesn't mean we don't influence them. Just as one gear in a clock influences the movement of hands, we all have power over the world around us, even if it is indirect influence. The idea of the stars holding sway over our lives comes from an ancient Greek belief in something called the Prime Mover, which we might call "God" or "the Creator," which lives far away from Earth, separated by "the spheres" which include bands of stars and the moon, before ending with Earth. They believed the Prime Mover worked its will on us the way a spring works the hands of a clock; the Prime Mover moved the spheres, which influenced us, as a spring motivates gears which move the hands of the clock.

While in the end we can be the Prime Mover of our own lives, some of what happens to us is just up to the universe and out of our hands. We can tell you when the stars will align for you, but only you can make things happen when the time is right. Take this quiz and begin your journey.
