I don’t see Astrology as being a science or perfect but see it as more of a way to get some insight into a person. I mean, the time of year you are born can not affect your entire life but I think that it may influence who you are in different ways. If anything its fun to read and see if you can see the right traits. In truth, for the best insight getting your chart done is much better then just reading a description since there are varying attributes based on your birthtime and location as well as the planets and all that stuff…
Unfortunately, I don’t really have anyone to talk to about this since it seems that most of the people I am around see astrology as total BS and stupid. I don’t read my horoscope religiously just whenever its in something I am already reading but I do have some astrology books at home that I pick over when I meet someone new and I find out their birthday. But I do see something to it. I mean as much as totem I guess. Just a little more insight to the world.
Personally, I am a Libra. My birthday is October 23 and while I am a cusp baby and people usually suspect I am a Scorpio. I am a Libra. I had my chart done and thats how I figured it out or someone figured it out for me. Soi, today for some fun I was reading up on some friends signs and figured I would take a gander at my own and check this out – I thought it was kinda creepy funny – from a zodiac website:
Libra Deep Inside:
They are also likely to hide or bend their own true feelings in order to bring peace with a group and to make others like them. Sometime this results in them not really knowing what their true feelings are because they are trying to make everyone happy. Other people can see this and Libras have earned themselves a reputation for being indecisive, they simply do not want to hurt anyone’s feelings or cause disorder or friction in a situation. This spills over inside the person and many times, Libras have difficulty making decisions. Inside, the Libra is very insecure, they suffer from a lack of self confidence, they are always searching for something to complete them. This is another reason why they are social butterflies, it is an unconscious attempt to find the missing peace through other people. By trying to appease other people all the time, Libras don’t really know who they are inside. Libras desperately need love and approval, they will do the favors that people ask and and have a hard time saying ‘no’ or ‘I’m too busy’ in order to prove how nice they are, this gradually builds up resentment and negative self esteem issues inside. Libra’s indecisiveness is caused by fear, their fear that a wrong decision will make everything come crashing down around them and cause turmoil in their lives. Life is not like that and the Libra that acknowledges the fact that life has ups and downs will be less emotionally wound up, not so hard on themselves and as a result, they will be a much happier person
So, I think I am going to blame the Libra instead of my past. Much easier to deal with. 😀
But I know that everything they say is Libra isn’t me. I mean look at this list of traits:
- Diplomatic / compromising – however possibly manipulative
- Fair / balanced / impartial
- Idealistic (in relationships)
- Easy-going / sociable
- Indecisive / changeable
- Peace loving
- Gullible / influenceable
- Elegant / graceful
- Refined / artistic / good taste
- Pleasure oriented
- Sensitive to others
- Flirty / frivolous – however loyal in marriage
I see some of myself on there but I mean, you can see yourself on any of them right? I think my main thing is my sense of balance but that can be blamed on having OCD instead of being a libra.
But is there real guidance in there for a relationship? I think so. I have done read ups on past relationships and they were pretty close. There are certain people of certain signs I don’t get along with that well. And you wanna know something funny – 3 of my closest friends are all Gemini’s. One of the signs that LIbra’s supposibly get along with best. They are some of my favourite people to travel with because its easy and relaxed and cohesive.
If there is anything to that then I should be looking for a mate with the possible signs of: Aquarius, Gemini or Libras. I guess that is a good place to start as any.
