    The stars

    Hello everybody!
    Why does "stars" have "the"?
    Some people run their lives according to the movements of the stars.

    Re: The stars

    Because it refers to the stars involved in astrology.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: The stars

    Or all of the stars, but not stars in general- there has to be something more specific to make whatever patterns astrology sees.
