dc.description.abstractThe aim of this study is to examine how zodiac signs are depicted through social interactions from an identity perspective and if zodiac signs can be seen as a form of divination. Our method was based on the answers of seven informants (six interviews in total), all of whom were interested in astrology with two of the informants having the title of astrologer by profession. After the implementation of Erving Goffman’s dramaturgical theory regarding identity and Jesper Frøkjær Sørensen’s divinatory perspective, we found evidence in the orrelation between zodiac signs and identity, along with astrology having little to no correlation with divination. The results show that although the majority of the informants were hesitant to the assertion that astrology can provide divinatory evidence, many of them still consumed and followed astrological advice based on prognosis. In addition to the implication that zodiac signs influence one's identity to some degree, our informants believed that it could be true, but were adamant to point out one's personality consists of more than just the attributes of their zodiac signs.sv
