Today’s challenge is a little fun. Especially since I am a MAJOR skeptic, especially when it comes to the Zodiac. Surprisingly though I do believe in religions, so… think what you may. Maybe this post will change my thoughts and turn me into a believer after all ! We’ll see !!!
To start with a good understanding of what the Zodiac actually is, I went to my one source for all knowledge – Wikipedia. Never mind that it can be altered by anyone and everyone. So the Zodiac is actually an area of the sky that extends about 8 degrees North or South, along the path of the sun, and other planets and the Earth’s moon also have visible orbits within the Zodiac. A zodiac sign is the portion of the zodiac occupied by the Sun at the moment of your birth. Because the Sun resides in each sign of the zodiac for about a month, those signs are also known as Sun signs. We all know the traditional signs, as shown below.
Turns out, each of the 12 signs, have traits and characteristics (expressed or unexpressed), based on the position of the sun, moon and other planets, at the time of birth of an individual. This is how astrologers claim to be able to read a person just based on their birth date and time. The 12 signs are further categorized into four elements – Air, Fire, Water and Earth.
I was born sometime in Feb, making Pisces my zodiac sign. Also making me a water sign. The symbol for my zodiac is two fishes.
It’s the 12th astrological sign of the Zodiac. Pisces is the Latin word for ‘fish’, no surprises. Since this post is about how I match (if or not) with my zodiac, I’m going to name some of my key qualities both good and bad, and then we can check what matches and what doesn’t.
Off the top of my head, some of my good qualities (that I know of) include – sensitivity, imagination, compassion, kindness, definitely intuitive and adjusting.
Some of my negative qualities would include – carelessness, procrastination, sensitivity and stubbornness.
Let’s look up the generic qualities of a Pisces and see how I match :
This one is true to the most, I would think. Though I’m definitely not very observant. Pretty careless that way, actually.
Also sounds a little arrogant to call myself versatile so I’ll pretend to be modest and say I’m not sure I’m versatile.
I guess I can be called dependable. Although whether or not I’ll deliver is something completely different.
These are 25 words that basically define a Pisces, and I think I both agree and disagree with these. I don’t think I’m mysterious, passive, gullible, introverted, changeable or even elusive. But hey, maybe another Pisces is.
I’m aware of the fact that there are a billion other traits and characteristics affiliated with this zodiac, but for purposes of keeping the post short, I stuck to some of the most common ones. It’s kind of fun to see how some of the traits are pretty spot on and some just bounce right off. What I would like to see though, is how similar or different two people of the same zodiac would seem. Maybe I’ll do a followup post about this soon !
Yeah right. If only my husband were so lucky.
