Writer's Block: It's Written In The Stars

What's your sign? What do you think of astrology and horoscopes?


I'm Virgo in regular astrology and Pig in Chinese.

From Wikipedia:

Virgo:

Characteristics
Astrologers broadly agree that the following are the characteristics of Virgo: The Virgo person is shrewd, critically inclined, judicious, patient, logical, meticulous, reliable, practical, diligent, intelligent and analytical, industrious, efficient, thorough, methodical, exacting, precise, detail-oriented, shy, observant, critical, work and service oriented, painstaking, pragmatic, modest, discreet, health & cleanliness conscious, mentally active, and flexible. They can also be fussy, nervous, pedantic, petty, over-critical, harsh, perfectionist, and conservative.

Physical traits
Astrologers believe that each of the twelve signs have identifiable physical traits. Physically, it is thought that individuals born under the sign of Virgo tend to have a graceful figure, a roundish head, delicately-shaped lips, large and clear eyes, small, symmetrical, and refined features, a high forehead, long arms and thin eyebrows. They are thought to usually be of slightly above average height.

Pig:

Attributes
The Pig type is usually an honest, straightforward and patient person. They are a modest, shy character who prefers to work quietly behind the scenes. When others despair, they are often there to offer support. This type of person is reserved with those they do not know too well, but as time passes and they gain confidence, those around them may discover a lively and warm-hearted person behind that mask of aloofness. Despite those born in the year of pig having a wide circle of friends and acquaintances, they have few close friends who understand them and share their inner thoughts and feelings. It is easy to put trust in pig type; they won't let you down and will never even attempt to do so. Such people simply want to do everything right according to social norms.

It is important to remember that these people are not vengeful creatures. If someone tries to take advantage of them, the pig type tend to withdraw to reflect on the problem and protect themselves. All they need in such situations is a little time to find a constructive way to respond. The people of the pig type are conservative creatures of habit. They dislike being made to travel too far from familiar surroundings, unless it is a trip to the countryside. They love nature and are never happier than when they are out somewhere, far from the city.

There is a tolerant and peaceful side to their character. Such people are never afraid to allow others their freedom of expression; they do not want to cause arguments and if there is any way to avoid arguing, they will probably take this option. However, they are not weak and if the situation forces them to fight these people will rise to the occasion, whether it is to defend themselves or those close to them.


What do you think, guys? Is that me?

Heh. No, the thing with astrology is, it describes pretty much everyone. It's broad and vague enough that everyone can recognise themselves in any given sign. Also, we tend to remember the time our horoscope was right, and forget the millions of times it had absolutely nothing to do with what actually happened.

Still, I won't deny I always read mine. It's always good for a laugh.
