About This Quiz

Out of the 12 zodiac signs, we think we will figure out which sign you were born under. Using the periodic table, we will learn where your birthdate falls in the stars. We cannot think of anything more fun than using science to get to the heart of your metaphysical self! Do you think we can do it? 

As we put all our cards on the table during this quiz, all you have to do is choose the element you want to assign to the random item that we present. For instance, seeing the word "bench" could make you think of sodium, zinc, argon or potassium, but it's up to you to choose. With a little scientific know-how and a lot of imagination, your zodiac sign will float to use like a helium-filled balloon flying through the sky. 

You might not see how the elements would translate to your zodiac sign, but we have it covered. Through loads of peer-reviewed trial and error, we have found that certain zodiac signs like certain elements more than others. The elements you choose will leave us a little roadmap to your astrological sign. Will we get it right, or will we need to go back to chemistry class?
