What’s Your Sign?

Guy: Let me guess? You’re a Leo?
Me (confuse): Yes? Why?
Guy: I knew it! You’re all smiles. And… You seem like an independent person but can be controlling.
Me: Hey! Did you just call me controlling?!
Guy:  Hahaha! You have this ‘I’m the Boss’ vibe going on.
Me:  *raises left eyebrow*
Guy: Also… Hmm… You have a special relationship with either an Aries or a Sagittarius.
Me: I am not sure but my best friend was born on November 28.
Guy: Yup, Sagittarius.
Me: Dude… No way! Hahaha!

Last week, I went out with a guy who happens to know a lot about Astrology. Whether you believe it or not, it is a practice which started many years ago and the idea is that each person has a particular sun sign which depends on when they were born.  And each sign is said to have particular personality characteristics.

I’m a Leo which means I’m supposed to be generous, loyal and as the kings and queens of the jungle, love being the center of attention. Well I hope the first two qualities are true! Leos are also known to be dramatic persons it is because we really feel much, sometimes really happy, sometimes really sad – to sum it up, drama queens!

Daily horoscopes are the most commonly recognized form of Astrology in the world. Open almost any newspaper or magazine and, regardless of its size or distribution, you will find a section for horoscopes. Though the reasons why horoscopes are so well received is still a mystery to some, there are many contributing factors to the horoscope’s success.

For example, according to Seattle Times News, my horoscope for today said

“Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Today is a 9 — Keeping your word increases your persuasive charm. Back it up with actions. Great abundance can be yours, if you work for it. Review the plan, beginning with the bottom line. Dig in, and get your hands dirty.”

It can be a form of ‘positive reassurance’. People enjoy the hunt for meaning in their horoscope, even if they do not consider themselves true believers in astrology. One reason why may be that horoscopes often encourage individuals to look for and embrace the positive in their lives.

According to Horoscopes.Co.UK,

Think black velvet or creamy white chocolate: actually, any combination that implies rich and melting. That’s the impact you could have on others. You could be just the ‘little bit of luxury’ they need. Your voice could be just what someone (a Gemini or Capricorn?) needs to hear. In short, you don’t have to do much. Which is perhaps just as well – it could be that your system is over-loaded and that you need to take things gently.

And according to AstrologyCompanion.Com, my top 3 matches are:

Sagittarius: Both Sagittarius and Leo are robust, fiery, fun-loving signs that share a mutual love of adventure and freedom, both in love with the experience of life itself.

Aries: Aries natives and Leo natives have such similar temperaments that they can’t help but share a mutual understanding of one another.

Gemini: Both Leo and Gemini are signs that approach life with enthusiasm and gusto.

Astrology is said to be a powerful method to understand romantic relationships. But even more than that, love horoscope are also said to be a secret way of influencing your love life. If you read between the lines, there’s more than the compatibility of zodiacs.

There are many reasons why one may choose to read horoscopes. The important matter to remember is that while taking the positive from any prediction is fine, don’t let disappointment amass if life doesn’t seem to follow the readings. What we see in these readings may say more about ourselves than any horoscope written ever could.

PS: I always knew Johnny Depp (Gemini) and I (Leo) are a perfect match! Woohoo!
