I saw a sign
Since this is the month of my birth, I took a look at my sign, Capricorn, and realize I don't match any of the traits. For those of you who are born between December 22 and January 19 fall into this beautiful goat of a sign. (I'm on the 18th.)
I'm not overly superstitious and don't read too much into astrologers, but isn't it slightly odd that none of the traits match?
Let's take a look:
According to the all knowing Wikipedia, it says "Capricorn is considered a "feminine", negative (introvert) sign."
I'm about the farthest thing from an introvert. Have you met me?
Other traits of the Ram:
Good organizational skills; Neat & tidy; Practical; Realistic; Strong work ethic; Materialistic tendencies; Conventional; Respects authority; Egotism; Cruel taskmaster; Servility; Excessive perfectionism
Out of all those listed, I would consider myself realistic, respects authority, strong work ethic and materialistic tendencies. I laughed out loud at "good organizational skills" and "neat and tidy."
The likes and dislikes are even more inaccurate and hilarious
Simple food; Antiques; History; Responsibility; Not being pressured; Unconditional love; Privacy; Elitism; Family
Untidiness; Disorder; Being teased; Familiarity; Surprises; New ideas & paths; Loneliness; Being useless; Public embarrassment
With this upcoming birthday, I'm taking my sign back and assigning myself a new one: Aquarius. Because I'm at the end of Capricorn being born on the 18th, I think I'm more of an Aquarius at heart.
Case in point - Aquarius is considered a "masculine", positive (extrovert) sign. (Yes that's me, that's me!)
Good communication skills; Sociable; Idealist; Tactless; Desires change; A utopian (I like to talk, meet people, sometimes stick my foot in my mouth and like to change things up from my wardrobe to the way I drive home.)
Fame; Themselves; Privacy; Dreams; Magic; Change; Eccentricity; Surprises; Living within their means (The first two make me laugh! I keep things to myself, have interesting dreams, love a little witch craft, big bold jewelry and small or large surprises.)
Emotion; Intimacy; Show-offs; Taken for granted; Being 'pinned down'; Violence; Senseless extravagance (I'm not overly emotional or easily show my feelings, but I'm working on that every day, slowly but surely. I don't like feeling tied down, hate violence but I do love a great expensive hand bag or pair of shoes every once in awhile.)
What do you think about astrology? Do you believe in in it, fit your sign or want to take a new one like me?
