"what's up with this website?"

this was initially created as a final project for a jane austen class taught at unc-chapel hill

"your choices are totally wrong."

if some of the answers seemed like a stretch, that's because superficial astrology like this - that doesn't consider moon/rising signs or planetary aspects - is always a little vague and one-dimensional


I hope you still had fun exploring the website!

"where did you get your astro info?"

where didn't I get my astro info?


I've been studying astrology for several years, using both print and web sources


here are some of my favorites:


The Complete Book of Astrology, by Ada Aubin and June Rifkin (St. Martin's Press, 1998)


The Astrology of Personality, by Dane Rudhyar (Dobleday, 1963)


Sun Sign, Moon Sign, by Charles Harvey (Thorsons, 1994) 


A History of Western Astrology, by Nicholas Campion (MPG Books, 2009)


"Cafe Astrology," a website:



or, if you're looking for something lighter:


Lovecasts: His Star Sign Secrets, Revealed!, by Judi Vitale (Adams Media, 2011)


Unexplained Zodiac, by Sasha Fenton (Imagine, 2011)


"Sasstrology: The Astrology of Sex, Love, and Relationships," a website (16+ recommended):

"how did you  assign sun signs?"

the process was long and had many, many phases (can you believe that fanny price was, in one draft, a taurus?! - with cancer rising, obviously)


while textually-based evidence of personality was the primary factor in my decison making, there was certainly a degree of necessity in some of the choices I made

"do you actually know anything about jane austen?"

I certainly like to think so!


these are the editions of her novels that I consulted for the website:


Northanger Abbey, by Jane Austen (Broadview, 2002)
