Hey baby, what's your sign?

What's your sign, baby?

Are you "true" to your sign?

Has your horoscope ever been a little too true? Do you think it's all just coincidence?

I'm on the fence... Here's why:

I have this friend whose aunt, Melinda, is an astrologer. Sweetheart, hippy, awesome woman. Since I was young, maybe 20 or so, she has done my chart and consistently tells her niece, my friend, to call me to alert me whenever something or other is in retrograde.

Although I think it's an interesting concept- that there are larger forces of time and space that could influence how things unfold... or that being born under a particular star shapes you, and the events that go on for the rest of your life... but is there anything to it other than just fun speculation?

My birthday is March 22. I'm the first full day of Aries, first full day of spring. According to Melinda I am "in a constant cycle of blazing and smoldering", "bold and impetuous, quick to anger but quick to forgive, adventurous, outspoken and outgoing, courageous, loves with abandon, romantic and passionate, huge flirt and loves sex, loves to cook, loves spicy food, loves anything hot... anything with fire...fireplaces, candles". I am "well matched with Sagittarius, Leo, and Taurus". (Ed note: That part might actaully not be bullshit; My first husband was a sag, my last bf of 3 years was a sag, relationship I just ended was with a leo, first love was a taurus, etc.)

Being a first cardinal sign, I "identify with people well, a good manager and leader", "have no problem inspiring change and and often start new projects, but may get bored easily and have problems finishing what was started" However, I'm sure a lot of people, regardless of their birthday, can say the same.

I usually brush off Melinda's suggestions and advice as being flakey, but there have been some moments where she has kinda freaked me out. She called me one day and left me a voicemeail telling me that "whatever domestic troubles, although painful, would pass and I was making the right decision". It was the day after I left my husband, and I was holed up in a motel and hadn't told anyone yet. Another day she called me to tell me to "watch out for something that seems too good to be true, someone is deceiving me". I had walked in on my boyfriend and my friend making out in my kitchen that afternoon. She called me one day to tell me that someone in my family was in trouble, and that I needed to put off traveling for awhile. I was in London, and (unknown to me) my sister was hospitalized for attempted suicide two hours prior. Coincidences? I dont know...

I call Melinda to wish her a happy birthday today, and she is going on and on about how I should come see her, she says it looks like I have a lot going on in my life, but there are so many postitive things... blah blah blah. And that I have recently met the "love of my life" or will shortly. Which is certainly news to me, considering I just broke off the latest in a string of 5 relationships in four month time span. There's nobody else currently in my life who seems fit for the position... the one man who's on my mind can't be bothered, and the rest of the applicants are underqualified. So I think there are definitely times when her star wisdom goes astray.

People say horoscopes are crap, but then they always want me to read their's from the paper in the morning. I personally am a fan of self-determination, but always am interested in Melinda has to say. and it had me thinking this afternoon

Do you read your horoscope? Do you think that astrology is just crap or for real?

Would love to take a tally of everyone's signs...

I bet the sexiest people on here are all Aries.... LOL

I've also been on the fence when it comes to horoscopes...but maybe it has more to do with being a Libra, we are noted for being indicisive, at least to other people. I'd like to think we take our time weighing the details, the scales of justice cannot be recklessly impulsive! When i've read the kind of horoscopes, for example, published in the daily newspaper, I've tended to come away thinking that the predictions given for my particular sign could apply to most anybody. Indeed, when I check out what's listed for other people's signs, they could also apply to me...in other words one can interpret just about anyone's horoscope as being aplicable to yours. Chalk it up to gifted ways of writing, kinda like the delphi oracle...not too specific, but enough to make you think that it could apply to you. However, I had my natal chart done by a friend and colleague, who produced a horoscope in a weekly alternative as well as on a college radio station. Like I said, we were friends (and continue to be even though he's moved away from the area), and we had discussed a lot in our respective lives. But when reading my chart, he told me things about myself and my situation that I swear I'd never mentioned to him at all. Quite frankly, it scared me that one could know my life so intimately...all from simply reading my chart. Now it could that i've become caught up in my friends passion for this, but I think he's on to something, and I will dismiss anything he says out of hand. As for the sexiest people, my Libra modesty prevents me from tooting the qualities of said sign...I will agree that Aries has at least one sexy blonde from LI!!!

I'm more of a fortune cookie kind of guy...lol

I read that Scorpio is supposed to be super ambitious, but I get the wind taken out of my sails so easily recently. It's almost as though I'm not the same person (I am certain of this) that I was just six or seven years ago...

I read my horoscope often actually, but only as a novelty. I don't always understand what they're all about. The underlying this and that's from the dawn of the Cosmos and stuff ^_^. I mean, if there's a Canis Major, Orion, or some Bear... how come they're not also a part of our internal make up and tea leaf readings? As Vatti often said (auf Deustch) "Das kam mir Spanish for" (or "It's Greek to me") ^_^

I'm a Cancer. A double Cancer at that, which means I'm supposed to love children, be into homemaking and be a homebody in general. I'm not particularly fond of most children, I love traveling and well, if I could afford a maid, she'd probably quit when she sees how quickly I can make a mess.
