Hey baby, what's your sign?

I’ve never really bought into Astrology. I find it hard to believe that a blanket statement such as a horoscope or a description of an Astrological sign can apply to everyone.

Someone sent me an e-mail this morning with a description of different signs and their meanings, along with the requisite warnings of how terrible my life will be and the possibility of burning in eternal Hell fires if I don’t forward it on. Boy I just love those, don’t you? Sheesh.

Anyway, out of curiosity I decided to break it down and see how much of it I thought applied to me. So this is how I see myself. For those of you who know me, if your opinion differs speak now or forever hold your peace.

PISCES- The Dreamer (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

Generous, kind, and thoughtful. I like to think so.
Very creative and imaginative. yes
May become secretive and vague. rarely
Sensitive. big-time (sometimes too much so)
Don't like details. this is so not true
Dreamy and unrealistic. definitely!
Sympathetic and loving. yes
Kind. yup
Unselfish. most of the time
Good kisser. so I’ve been told. Kind of funny to see this included on the
Beautiful. how does a guy answer that?

By the way I’m not forwarding the e-mail, so if I’m not around in the next few days I’ve either been struck by a meteor or I’m taking a permanent vacation in Hades.


  1. My boyfriend is a Pisces and they all describe him quite well. Especially the part about not liking details. That hits the nail on the head!

  2. I find astrology interesting since a fair chunk of my sign (Libra) seems to apply to me... well except for the narcissism bit and the superficial bit since both are so NOT me, but a lot of the other stuff sounds like it fits.

    Now if you go to a few different places though, they state there are 13 signs in the "true" Zodiac which would, allegedly, make me a Virgo which does not sound remotely like me...

    In Celtic astrology I am Ivy (the new moon portion) -

    Here is the main link to the page if you wish to look your birthdate up -

    T. thought your birthday fell in this category --

    Mine sounds like me but T.'s does not really sound like him though...

  3. Wooooo hooooo fellow fishy!!! I agree...except for the details thing. No way - we love details.

    I was out with my friend Matt this weekend and after a few drinks he said the following: I don't believe in astrology, but as a Gemini I can really explore both sides of the matter.

    Bwaaaaa hahahaha! We laughed waaaay more than necessary...Blame it on the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol... Good times. Good times.

  4. Lins, I'm so opposite to your boyfriend I'd probably drive you crazy!! I'm sometimes obsessive about details. Of course, Sandy was thankful about that when we renovated the main floor of our home. :)

    S.C., thanks for the breakdown. Narcissistic and superficial are two words I definitely wouldn't use to describe you!

    Cindy, do you ever NOT have a good time?? LMAO at Matt's comment, oh the cruel irony. Blame it on the alcohol indeed. (You like that song too, huh?) Jamie Foxx, singer. Who knew?
