Abstract – Horoscopes became a trend in social media during the COVID-19 pandemic, where related content gave information on one’s personality, compatibility, fortunes, and decisions. However, this may consequently affect one’s interpretation of identity and perception of others. Therefore, the influence of horoscopes on students of Philippine Science High School - Main Campus and how it affects their relationship with others will be studied by content analysis from conducted interviews. Results show that students who relate to their horoscopes used them to either escape from their source of stress or understand their own personalities and feelings. This led to both positive and negative effects on how the students manage relationships.
