Astrology, it's not all rubbish, is it?

So many people say that horoscopes and astrology are a load of rubbish but I'm not sure they are... For example I read the personality traits of my sign and they have me mostly down to a T! I didn't even realise I do some of those things until I read it!
Maybe there is something there after all...

To demonstrate...
'Leos have a reputation for being charismatic, creative and confident. But scratch beneath the surface and you're far from sure. You can undermine yourself with secret worries that, when push comes to shove, you may not be up to much. Just as a match doesn't ignite until it strikes a hard surface, you will only find out what you're made of when you're up against a challenge. And some of your most significant challenges come through relationships.'

'Facing the harsh reality of other people can give you some tough jolts. Being so absorbed in your own affairs, you often lack the antennae needed for detecting other peoples feelings. So you can quite unwittingly ignore their needs and tread on their toes. You're mortified when it's pointed out to you, because it dents the vision of yourself as good and kind and noble.
You take it for granted that what you are, do, think and say are the most important things in the world. And so they are and should be - in your world. The trouble is, you tend to see other people as an extension of yourself. That they are actually unique individuals who don't always see eye to eye with you can come as a very unpleasant surprise. It's when you come to terms with these facts that your great capacity for love comes into its own.'

'You need love and attention like other people need food. It's important to have people around you who will pamper and spoil you, otherwise you'll wilt. You're a natural born dramatist with a flair for self promotion, so you have the knack of attracting an audience down to a fine art. But it's only those people who adore you unstintingly and genuinely for what's behind all the razzmatazz who will help you to love yourself.'

'You're no Cinderella, waiting around on the sidelines for the dashing prince to come to your rescue. YOU are the prince or princess, and YOU are the one who does the redeeming. You're capable of making great sacrifices for those you care about. You love to be needed, so you'll happily extend a helping hand to anyone in trouble, making their problems your problems. And since you're an excellent organiser, and extremely liberal with your advice, you generally do a great job of sorting them out. But, needless to say, you do like to be thanked.'

So very familiar... I might do part 2 later, no time for now...

There is a lot more going on with Astrology and other divination than people realize, I'm a typical Virgo, picky, astute, aloof, perfectionist. Go ahead and explore astrology and other things, it's an eye opener

I've never really paid any attention to anything before, all seen it as a little bit of a lighthearted joke... but this is so accurate I'm starting to wonder what else might be...

I never bothered with it until I started with the pagan stuff but there is a lot more to this than meets the eye
Jan. 29th, 2012 08:28 pm (UTC)
Maybe there is more to it than I thought... I'd love to properly research it all but I'm afraid my friends might not approve
Jan. 29th, 2012 08:30 pm (UTC)
Bugger your friends, if you want to research it go ahead, some of my friends didn't approve my move into paganism, those that did are still my friends.

It's entirely up to you which direction you want to go in

You don't have traits as a result of celestial alignments. Some things are because you're a human being, others are because of the society, climate and geography you were born into, and others are indeed to do with the time of year you were born (e.g. your school year and relative age within that year group). I too am aloof and all that, but I'm Sagittarius.

HAHAHA! Anne I don't believe I have traits because of some celestial alignments, all I'm saying is it's interesting reading them sometimes and seeing what they do say. Especially as this one appears to be so accurate! Never really looked into any of this stuff and decided to, just for interests sake and found this. Does make you wonder (in retrospect) how accurate things are.
Jan. 29th, 2012 08:32 pm (UTC)
I know you don't. But they're all accurate, often because they describe traits shared by a large percentage of humanity. 'You seem confident but you can be very insecure' = human being. It's like the horoscopes people write, like 'Don't let your recent mistakes get you down. A change in your fortunes is on the way'. That's going to be accurate for a vast swathe of the population. And the idea that anyone could believe that every single person born in a certain year has the same traits is demonstrable piffle to anyone who has spent time in a group of people born the same year as them. At least belief in the One God doesn't require one to ignore the personalities of everyone everywhere.

Did you check your Chinese sign too? I'm a Leo too but I found that my Chinese sign (pig O_O) somehow fits even more. Although Leo has some characteristics that apply to me as well (especially the whole 'looking confident but being anything but' part)
Jan. 29th, 2012 08:18 pm (UTC)
I haven't... I'm a Rabbit though.

My mother's a dragon, the fortunate soul. I'm a rat.

My best friend is a snorse. Some calendars say she's a horse, others she's a snake (I think...) and she think's she likes being a snorse because she doesn't fit with either one!
