Can I write my essay about my interest for astrology?

So I am doing prompt 6 of the common app and I am thinking if astrology is a unique prompt that most people will not do. And this is something that actually cultivates my interest. Thank you!

Most topics have probably been done by someone else, but what matters most is the point of view from which you write your essay. Astrology seems like a unique prompt but be sure to tie everything back to how it made you into the person you are today because that's what admission officers will be looking at. Good luck with everything, and be sure to submit your essay for peer review! :)
