Do you wake up every morning and immediately look up your horoscope for the latest predictions of how your day is going to go?

Well, then this meme may be for you, as university administrator Tess, from New Zealand, has come up with an alternative you can look to alongside your traditional zodiac sign.

The idea is, the Best Actress Academy Award winner from the year of your birth is the person who represents you best.

So, forget Scorpio or Gemini… are you more of a Jodie Foster, or a Meryl Streep with Cher rising?

1. Julie Andrews won the award in 1965 for Mary Poppins.

2. Is this double-win the new Gemini?
