Hey Sexy, What's Your Sign?
While I don’t like admitting Paris Hilton was my muse today, I did find this little article about her of interest, it read:
Paris Hilton blames her wild lifestyle on the zodiac.
The 'Pledge This!' actress - famed for her love of late nights and clubs - insists her star sign is the reason she is such a party animal.
She explained: "I don't know how I keep going to all these parties. I think it's because I am an Aquarius. We Aquarians have a lot of energy."
Sing it, sista.
So, if you've ever spoken to me for more than ten minutes at a time, you probably heard me ask, "What's your sign?" Now, I probably wasn't hitting on you; I just am one of "those people” who believes in astrology.
And, yeah, I'm a pretty smart girl, and I understand that it's fairly stupid to think the day/month/time that you were born would have any more implication on your personality than the name of the doctor that delivered you, but I only tells it hows I sees it, and I am telling you it does matter.
I have a couple friends that think I'm all out stupid for believing in astrology. And, I would think so as well if I just believed it for no reason.
But, time and time and time again, I have seen certain behavior fit the same people within a sign.
I just look for commonalities in behavior and personality and I file it away. I usually see my "theory" that it's because they are a Taurus or whatever validated when sho nuff someone of the same sign does the same thing. I’m not talking things like “You’re really nice and like people” but personality things.
Some signs I am more familiar with (Pisces, Taurus, Aquarius, Scorpio, or Sag) and other signs I know a few details as well. One of my favorite things to do when meeting someone is to find out their sign and describe general characteristics about that person—I'd say easily 9 times outta 10, I have people really impressed with these little descriptions.
Let me list some of the things I have found to be true in many cases (like those caveats)--you can agree or disagree, but I'm just sayin:
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20):
These fish are as smart as they are emotionally sensitive. They don’t like to disagree with you unless it’s a debate about an issue. It’s kind of like the image of someone crying and knowing they shouldn’t, but they are anyway. They are prone to being lonely, but are particular about the company they keep for an extended period of time. It's pretty rare for anyone to not like a Pisces as they are very agreeable and caring.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
These lovely little crazies are obsessed with the future. Their classic phrase is “what’s next” because if they don’t have something cooking on the horizon they are not satisfied. Certainly not in the moment people, they are highly competitive and prone to emotional vulnerability. They are also a bit selfish and while they recognize their own fault in a relationship, they don’t like to admit it to anyone or correct it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20):
It’s no coincidence that this sign’s symbol is the bull because they will not listen or change for anyone unless THEY are ready or willing. Something I’ve found to be often misunderstood about this sign is that they have a great emotional capacity for understanding and actually make great (thought sometimes selfish) friends. A Taurus is also prone to being narcissistic and escapist, which can be a lot of fun, but takes an emotional toll on those who love him or her.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
Okay, this is my sign and I think it’s the best sign (which is exactly what an Aquarius would say). Though our symbol is the water bearer, we are most definitely an air sign. We are emotionally detached in the sense that we rarely are emotionally attached to any situation. Give us one nights sleep and most of the anger will be gone. We are outgoing to a fault and are generally confident about ourselves and our own abilities. We can also be assholes because few things bother us and we assume that others are the same way.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):
These bad boys are some complex mofos. While they care a great deal for those in their life, they also have problems forming long-term relationships due to their uncanny ability to check out of any situation due to a very strong sense of self. Their symbol of a scorpion is not just the idea of a stinger (strong temper), it’s that once you cross them, you will always pay for it. They are also intelligent and serious about their work and life. They often are too trusting of people when they first meet them, but usually can pick up on it after they realize something is not right (don't even try to tell them).
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
As a fire sign, Leos are often the life of the party as they are confident and have a serious love of fun. I have found, however, that Leos are often vulnerable in friendships and relationships due to their open and honest nature. One of the worst scenarios for a Leo is to be in a relationship with someone that is control or dominating because that can really eff them up. However, a definite positive of the sign is that they don’t take it for long and are usually happy to kick manipulators to the curb.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20):
The dual sign is equal parts masculine and feminine. A Gemini has many emotional vulnerabilities, but many masculine traits as well. It’s a particularly interesting sign because while friendships and relationships can be quite nurturing, they can also cold and dominating if the Gemini does not get his or her way. I have found them to be extremely creative and independent, and only happy when “doing their own thing” without the usual structures and restraints of a workplace.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):
This is a straight up no-nonsense sign when it comes to intelligence and absolute silly sign when it comes to personality. They take their intellect extremely serious, and have trouble respecting people who they would consider, well, stupid. In social situations they often don’t have much regard the status quo and usually do whatever it is that interests them, particularly because they tend to be on the vain side. A classic example of a Virgo would be a former-friend who worked on policy and spreadsheets all day and then came home to two stinky, but beloved ferrets--smart and serious in intellect, but totally goofy in personalitiy.
CANCER (June 21-July 22):
They are nurturers and have their own concerns last on the list. I have seen Cancers emotionally exhaust themselves time and time again on a high maintenance friend or relationship. They are very appreciative people and aside from never missing your birthday, they also have a tremendous amount of gratitude for any kindness you give them. Downsides include letting their emotions control them to the point of being irrational though they often pride themselves on being levelheaded, it usually is not the case.
ARIES (March 21-April 19):
Aries people are headstrong and usually ready to be a pioneer, which includes rush into things before reflecting. They often dominate the conversation and have a strong will. An Aries will have a seriousl and constant need for love and affection and usually, attention. Most of them that I have known are idealists and feel more comfortable looking at the positive.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):
Librans usually have a lot of class and self respect. They are always struggling with a particular decision or conflict as it's their nature to balance rather than choose. Some of the strongest people I know have been Libras, and also very good at adapting in a particular situation.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
I have only known a couple Capricorns and while both do have some similarities (strong willed, confident) I have also observed a listlessness in their nature. There is a quality that makes life happen to them instead of them making choices that result in their present situation. I would also say that they are known as leaders and associated with public figures, and I would agree with that as those that I know are most often looked to in stressful situations.
