People who believe in astrology think the stars affect your life. They say that the position of the stars and planets on the day of your birth influences your personality. For example, people born under the star sign Leo are supposed to be loyal and proud, while Scorpios are passionate and jealous. Some people look to the stars for signs about what is going to happen in the future. Others believe that the stars actually cause certain events to take place here on Earth.
Zach Galifianakis doesn’t necessarily believe in astrology. But he does use an expression that is related to astrology. He says that all the stars aligned and he got lucky in his career. This summer, he appeared in the hit comedy The Hangover, and he has several more movies coming out soon. Everything is going great in his career. It seems like the stars are aligning to make him a star.
When the stars align, everything comes together in a positive way. When talking about your own life you might say “My stars aligned,” or if you’re talking about someone else you can say “Herstars aligned.” If something great happens to you, you might also say it was written in the stars. And you might want to thank your lucky stars for your good fortune.
