Switching degrees?

I am currently majoring in Accounting, and I'm not entirely sure if it's for me. I love some parts of it (how laws affect certain parts of accounting etc.) However, I haven’t been liking any of my recent classes, and the idea of doing this forever kind of makes me scared. I can't change majors right now; I have a two year scholarship for accounting and I intend on using it to all of its potential.

So far this seems pretty straight-forward, but the problem is that when I consider all of the possible things that I'm interested in I keep coming back to Astronomy. Which isn't even closely related to Accounting. I have never taken an astronomy class, but I constantly find myself researching the subject online whenever I have free time and I never do that for accounting. It’s also been a few years since I've taken any science classes and I have never taken any math classes higher than Algebra 2.

How do I decide? Should I get a job as an accounting clerk after I get my AAS and see what happens? Maybe I’m just having anxiety because of tough classes? Should I go into a field I know little about, although it seems like something I would like?

BTW I'm 18 and am currently going to a community college that does not offer any astronomy classes, so I can't take it on the side to get a basic understanding either.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Thank you,
