About This Quiz

You can trace tales of fish-tailed humans all the way back to Mesopotamia and Babylon. The idea of people in the sea is about as old as folklore itself, and it's not too surprising when you think about it. What could have been more mysterious to ancient people than the sea? Think of what we still don't know about our oceans. Even today, we are discovering incredible new life forms in the depths of the ocean with our advanced technology. It's the last frontier left in the world, and it's an endless source of mystery and wonder. It's also the home of mermaids.

Mermaids have taken on many different roles in stories over the years. They bring comedy and romance — and even horror sometimes. But at their core, mermaids represent something fantastic, something wondrous and hidden and beyond belief. They are very much like the secret side we all keep hidden from the world, the part of us that dares to dream impossible things, where all our hopes and fantasies are born. 

Everyone has that inner mermaid, a wonderous part of our soul that keeps us feeling alive and keeps us dreaming. Want to know which sign of the zodiac matches up best with that part of you? All you need to do is take a dip in our quiz!
