Mood: Dumb

Alright…

How do I start this blog entry? I’m pretty sure you’re tired of reading openers that almost all the time consist of “Hello! Good morning! How are you? Happy birthday! This is Ms Aya who —-” bla bla bla.

Opening lines can be so difficult! Just when I thought being a Gemini who supposedly excels in communication, this should come by easily for me! <`A´>/

I’m beginning to doubt myself as a Gemini. <;__;>

Do you know what a Gemini is? <.__.> ↓

Gemini is 1 of the 12 star signs in the zodiac family, each embedded which different and unique tray of characteristics. We can’t choose our star sign as it is according to our birth date. The purpose of star signs is to help you know yourself better, discover your luck and power, as well as a guide to choosing a compatible soul mate. In short, it’s all about characteristics and chemistry.

You all do know your star sign, don’t you? (Laughs) Aquarius, Pisces, Aries…

There are people who consider all this daily luck reading and zodiac personalities to be ultimate bullshit because — it’s too general.

For example:

TAURUS – You are known to be stubborn

If you were to tell a Sagittarius that he is stubborn, he may agree. And it could have nothing to do with being a Taurus or not. Everyone is stubborn in dissimilar ways. Maybe it’s a matter of who is more stubborn and Taurus might be the ultimate hard-headed people.

This goes to say that the zodiac characteristics is too generalized and it is quite ridiculous to believe that in this big, big world that is human infested, there are only as little as 12 types of characteristic group.

As for daily predictions that you religiously check in the newspapers, for instance:

LIBRA – An exciting individual is going to enter the room and sweep your feet off the ground. Be bold and switch on your charm because this person is going to be essential in your romance arena!”

Or something like that la. >__<

It’s hard to believe all the Libras are going to turn on their smexy devilish mode and success in that investment? If so, explain why your Libra sister came home with disappointment of not meeting anybody?

The readings and predictions could be accurate for some people while others, they just have to find out themselves. It depends how you take it, whether with great optimism or a pinch of salt.

Personally, I’m not very interested in the daily forecast however, I do believe there is some truth in star signs and their characteristics. Did I not just say they are too generalized? Yes, it is, should you read from the newspapers, magazines or those little birthday key chains.

Instead, try reading a book entirely on Astrology and you may get a proper and much more complete information regarding the zodiacs and their unique set of characteristics. I mean — short lines of “You’re kind, helpful and generous” isn’t going to sum up or explain why a Pisces is different from a Cancer despite that both are of passive signs.

Or who is powerful lover; An Aries or a Leo? There is a depth to that common and brief “Scorpio is a mysterious,  secretive and instinctive lover.”

Anyway, I’m not an Astrologist (Heck, I don’t even know the correct order of our Solar System) ergo, do Google if you would like to know more about behaviors according to horoscopes. You can also find such books in the New Age section.

I have this book that is enriched with horoscope information that it even includes details on some sort of Mathematical chart that reads and determines compatibility, BI-wheels and lots of stuff.

Well, hardcore Astrology fans would be thrilled to learn all there is to know pertaining this subject. But for some of us, that is overload of Science and we only want to know ourselves better and who we are compatible with, correct? (Laughs)

The keywords provided may seem very general to you..in fact..they are quite abrupt because the book has more to say however, I’m not about to type every detail out..that would be plagiarizing! <`A´>/

Just click on your horoscope sign and read through. \<^∀^>/

That said, after reading and getting to know your zodiac characteristics — What do you think?

Are you precisely as how your zodiac says you are? And do you like being the way you are?

Are you proud to be a Virgo? A Capricorn?

For me as a Gemini…Well…I don’t like most of the characteristics because…it makes me sound as though I’m an insincere, cunning and manipulative person. In short, a bad sheep who is out to con people! <TAT> (Cries)

If I were to go on emphasizing what I meant, it’s going to be a windbag of diarrhea so perhaps, I shall blog regarding it separately — or never. <-___->

(Laughs nervously)

Baa~ Sheep wonders…<u__u> Will she end up with an Aquarius…Or some other ‘species’… <^-^>lll

So anyway, tell me what you think about this whole Astrology topic; the characteristics, relationships, luck, true or false — anything!

All that has been said in this blog post is strictly based on my own opinions. I’m not a Zodiac guru and the information may be invalid and unreliable so by all means, please do not take the information here too seriously. Thank you. <^-^>lll
