Is the concept that people are more likely to have certain traits depending on their star sign a paranormal topic? ?

Do you think that there is any validity in the idea that your personality can be influenced by your birth date?

    I suppose it is possible that in parts of the world with markedly different seasons, seasonal variations in sunlight and air temperature might affect the very early environments experienced by babies in their first months, which just might have some faint lingering influence on their adult personalities. E.g.  summer babies may wear fewer clothes and see more sunlight in their first months. While it is not evident that this would have any lasting psychological effect, it is not impossible.

    No, not really paranormal.  It's more like folklore and entertainment.  And no, there is no validity behind it.  That stuff is just for fun.

    Take a look at any daily horoscope prediction and look at the wording.  Notice how vague the predictions are, how they could apply to just about anybody any time.  They're worded like that for a reason.

    YES.  That is a Pseudoscience called ASTROLOGY.  Like Most paranormal topics, Astrology has no real evidence to back it up---save for enough coincidences to make SOME people believe in it or at least give it a second look.---Most people need MORE evidence though to seriously consider it.

    Astrology is based on the assumption that energy "emissions" from the planets and celestial bodies and certain areas of far outer space from beyond certain constellation regions, can influence out personality, biology and fate.---How so depending on the time of our birth and our angular relationship to them.------Sounds sophisticated, but we have no evidence of these forces or reliable correlations.

    Sure. There’s never been any real measurable effect for science to look at, or plausible mechanism of action. So it’s outside the scope of science and therefore ‘paranormal’.  It’s a pseudoscience which is frequently and easily debunked.

    It is, but Astrology has its own site so it may not be the best place to ask.  But all woo-woo is paranormal.
