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)

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

PS: Oh wow…I pulled through the opening. Y~ay! Gemini power~! (Laughs)

To be honest, Sheep. I don’t see horoscope often. Until yesterday I saw yr twitter. I found some are accurate some are not … but the best one was I mention is about Freedom. Anyways, I don’t care about relationship with Gemini, date with Gemini, SEX with Gemini stuff (BORED)

and come to precision … Some are very imprecise until impossible, some will be VERY PRECISE until it can really happen in the following day, from the Star newspaper daily horoscope … That’s one my friends point of view

Dear Pix

Hahaha, yea. You don’t seem to give a damn about such things. XD It’s interesting though, to read about your friends’ horoscope and sometimes, it makes you say, “Hey! She is very like that one!” XD

About the reading, for me — sometimes it doesn’t happen on the day I read the predictions. It happens the next day or a few days later! (o_O) So your friend also experience that.

hehe.. reading about ur post if horoscope reminds me of the anime I’m currently addicted.. Fairy Tail..

anyway, I’m always interested in astrology though I don’t have the time to understand them or don’t have the money to invest in books.. haha.. if someone were to give me a talk/lecture about them, I would be so glad to hear.. haha

And to some extend, I do believe them although sometimes, those keywords doesn’t really apply to some of my friends.. so maybe there’s still lots’ more to discover.. it’s really a magical topic.. ^^”

♎ LIBRA – The Scales
Dates: 23 September – 22 October
Keywords: Relationships, harmony, partnership, cooperation, diplomatic, conciliation, perfectionist, indecisive, compromise, insincerity, judgment, adjustment, adaptation, vacillating, frivolous, peaceable, congenial, aesthetic, determined.

Some true, some not I think, for example, perfectionist? XD I very cincai LOL.

I refer to few sites on horoscopes and they tend to say Libra is a balance kind of thing because of the scale of Libra. I wonder is true?

The only thing I can confirm is Taurus is a monster LOL. Not stubborn. As for my case, I refer to my sis who is Taurus XD!!!!! When she is in mad mode, OMG no one can calm her down but herself.

In my opinion, Horoscope is something you can refer to when you are in trouble, but cannot count on it too much. It does explain certain individual’s personality/characteristic but not everything because it have to do with out birth time/luck etc.

Especially on the relationship meter between this horoscope and the other, I find it bulls**t desu LOL…. XDXDXDXDXD maaa…in short is 50-50 condition.

“..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.”
Frankly the best and the most truthful sentence I have read on the internet in a while. That was very well put and is something to think over for those people who lie their lives based on what their astrological sign says about them.
These things are correctly called predictions. Predictions are not always right by definition, and does not mean you should follow it religiously. It has the same relation with futures as guidelines have with rules.
As for,
“♏ SCORPIO – The Scorpion
Dates: 23 October – 21 November
Keywords: Transformation, intensity, mastery, magnetism, penetration, power, sexuality, secrets, destruction, mysterious, suspicious, covert, trauma, self-destruction, vindictive, resentment, controlling.”
These adjectives might/might not define who I am but it helps me figure out which qualities among these I have. These astrological predictions are fun to read and not to be FOLLOWED. It is upto yourself to make decisions in life not turn to horoscopes.
I also liked what Dino said: “In my opinion, Horoscope is something you can refer to when you are in trouble, but cannot count on it too much. It does explain certain individual’s personality/characteristic but not everything because it have to do with out birth time/luck etc.”
I could go on and on about this but I dont want my comment to be looking like a blog post XD

PS: About, “I’m not about to type every detail out..that would be plagiarizing!” It wont be plagiarizing as long as you make a point to cite the source and make it clear that you are not pawning off someone elses work as your own.

When I posted my comment and I read it back to myself, I realized that it sounded very harsh. I just wanted to make it clear that it was not meant to be harsh or bashing you in anyway. I was just pumped up about he topic and wrote it like post rather than a comment. I really appreciate you bringing up the topic though. Also, sorry if it was harsh. I will try to keep the replies more docile, short and to the point XD

Dear Cassie, Dino-chan and Monkeyd

Thanks for contributing your opinions. XD But yea, horoscope reading isn’t accurate for every individual it seems. Some of us might see it while others, don’t. (^-^)/

Oh ya, Monkeyd — It’s alright to type like that. People are allowed to speak up here as long as no aggressive arguments. XD

PS: Pardon the short reply…Sheep is a bit lazy at the moment. (^-^) (smiles innocently) *dare to smile some more! What the hell…* (-__-)
