There are many levels to enjoying and learning about astrology. You can go from being a full astrologer to simply enjoying it as a hobby as I do. Some people can even predict the future using the power of astrology. But as a disclaimer, in no shape or form am I a professional astrologer, nor do I consider myself a genius on the subject. But, I do find it fascinating and love to look into people’s signs. You can call me the token astrology friend. If anyone tries to argue with you that “astrology is not real!” do what I do and ask them one question.
Because if not, you cannot argue with me. It confirms astrology has some power over us. If not, it all just must be a coincidence. And the odds of that… just aren’t high. You just couldn’t make this up.
Let me explain. For starters, the boys of One Direction’s relationships and roles within the band become clear through their sun signs. Each boy is an earth sign… except for Harry. Harry Styles is an air sign. If you’re a beginner in astrology, the twelve zodiac signs fall into four elements (think like Avatar: The Last Airbender): earth, water, fire, and air.
Earth signs typically are very grounded signs. They include Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. They are all stereotypically known for being hard workers, grounded in reality, and very in tune with what they can physically see and touch. Niall and Liam are Virgos and Louis and Zayn are Capricorns. Looking at what we as fans know about the boys, you can see how each boy with the same sun sign has similarities. For example, Louis and Zayn are both dedicated to their work and being the best, authentic versions of themselves which are important to a Capricorn. On the other hand, saying they are all earth signs does not automatically indicate the four boys are exactly alike. They are very different, you can see that when you look deeper within their chart.
Harry Styles being an air sign…just makes sense to me. He’s the perfect description of an Aquarius male. When you put an Aquarius male in a world-famous boyband, he’s going to stand out. No one can argue that Harry Styles didn’t get the most attention throughout One Direction’s time together (and now after). He caught the public’s eye and had a way of captivating your heart. Without being able to exactly point it out, you could always tell there was something different about him from the rest. One explanation of that attention could be his Aquarius placements. Air signs include Gemini, Aquarius, and Libra, they are typically social and communicative yet distant to their emotions, some would say detached. Aquarius is known to be stubborn, especially to norms, and desperately wants to individualize and express that in some way. The encounters I have had with Aquarius suns always prove to me each one has a certain quirk– they are quirky. Harry fits this description so well. So well, he sometimes seems polar opposite to the other four boys.
However, once you look deeper into each boys’ “big three”, you begin to understand a bit of why the band worked for a while even though their sun signs make each boy seem so different. Your “big three” signs are the most prevalent and commonly known placements. They are your sun, which is your basic sense of self. Your moon, which rules your emotions and inner self. And lastly, your rising (ascendant), which shows how you are perceived and the mask you wear. Let’s take a quick deep dive into the boys big three and break it down into some simple One Direction astrological hot takes and explanations:
