I wasn't sure where to put this question but, since it was Ali who brought to mind...I figured I'd put it in his backyard.

In response to a poem, Ali commented..."very Piscean". I thought, hmmmm....I wonder...so my question is this:

What is your sign and do you feel that it accurately describes who you are?

I am a Pisces. We are thought of as deep, emotion driven, passion-filled, artistic and creative people. (I'm not braggin' that's what they say...LOL) Honestly, I feel that it's pretty accurate. Though, I must admit...I have another side as well. It doesn't come through very often..but WOAH!

I am a fellow fish, Sally ...

As far as whether or not it describes me ... well, at times it does, but Pisces are also often described as "melancholy" which does not suit me at all ... my sorrows are usually fleeting; I believe life is much too short to mope about feeling sorry for oneself.

I am passionate, but only about certain things ... and I have been called creative, though I would describe it more like "stubbornly persistent"!

Maybe if we're lucky we can go round the entire zodiac on this one ... what do you think..?

Pisces here too!

I have read in a couple places that our sign has a creative side..kind of what we 'like' or 'want'. Although, also having a corresponding down to earth side..for what we think we 'should'. Oftimes, at war with each other. This is one aspect of my sign that very much applies to me. I have a very creative aspect to my personality that is constantly at war with an incredibly analytical aspect. Oh woe! LOL

I stand on the cusp of Gemini and Cancer. I think I'm pretty accurate in saying I have the duality of the twins but the moon child keeps me from being too "out there". Sometimes I feel really torn in two different directions and the Cancer part helps me make a decision based more on logic than emotion. I think I'm fairly practical and tend to hide my feelings except in my poetry. The twins do often interfere though and I want to run and skip and play. The crab keeps me in check so I don't go make an idiot of myself

I'm a Capricorn...triple Earth.
Sun: Capricorn
Birth: Capricorn
Ascendant: Taurus

Capricorn is part goat, part fish.

Fish love water, and I loves to get wet.
Goats are horny (two horns), and I'm always horny (one horn).

That about sums it up.

All Leo here, Sally. I never ask anyone their sign because, if they are a Leo they'll tell me without asking and,if they're not, well, there's no reason to embarrass them!


Loe...in like a lion, out like a lamb. (Damn that Toerag!)

I am an Aquarius

Traditional Aquarian Traits
(copied from Yahoo as I don't keep up on this..if you can read through all this, you will know me as well as anyone can!)

Friendly and humanitarian
Honest and loyal
Original and inventive
Independent and intellectual


Aquarians basically possess strong and attractive personalities. They fall into two principle types: one shy, sensitive, gentle and patient; the other exuberant, lively and exhibitionist, sometimes hiding the considerable depths of their character under a cloak of frivolity. Both types are strong willed and forceful in their different ways and have strong convictions, though as they seek truth above all things, they are usually honest enough to change their opinions, however firmly held, if evidence comes to light which persuades them that they have been mistaken. They have a breadth of vision that brings diverse factors into a whole, and can see both sides of an argument without shilly-shallying as to which side to take. Consequently they are unprejudiced and tolerant of other points of view. This is because they can see the validity of the argument, even if they do not accept it themselves. They obey the Quaker exhortation to "Be open to truth, from whatever source it comes," and are prepared to learn from everyone.
Both types are humane, frank, serious minded, genial, refined, sometimes ethereal, and idealistic, though this last quality is tempered with a sensible practicality. They are quick, active and persevering without being self-assertive, and express themselves with reason, moderation and sometimes, a dry humor.
They are nearly always intelligent, concise, clear and logical. Many are strongly imaginative and psychically intuitive, so that the Age of Aquarius, which is about to begin, is much anticipated by psychic circles as an age in which mankind will experience a great spiritual awakening. The Aquarian philosophical and spiritual bent may be dangerous in that it can drive the subjects into an ivory-tower existence where they meditate on abstractions that bear little relevance to life. On the other hand it can help the many who have scientific leanings to combine these with the Aquarian yearning for the universal recognition of the brotherhood of man, and to embark on scientific research to fulfill their philanthropic ideals of benefiting mankind. When some cause or work of this nature inspires them, they are capable of such devotion to it that they may drive themselves to the point of exhaustion and even risk injuring their health.
Both types need to retire from the world at times and to become temporary loners. They appreciate opportunities for meditation or, if they are religious, of retreats. Even in company they are fiercely independent, refusing to follow the crowd. They dislike interference by others, however helpfully intended, and will accept it only on their own terms. Normally they have good taste in drama, music and art, and are also gifted in the arts, especially drama.
In spite of the often intensely magnetic, forthcoming and open personality of the more extrovert kind of Aquarian, and of their desire to help humanity, neither type makes friends easily. They sometimes appear to condescend to others and take too little trouble to cultivate the acquaintance of people who do not particularly appeal to them. They do not give themselves easily - perhaps their judgment of human nature is too good for that - and are sometimes accounted cold. But once they decide that someone is worthy of their friendship or love, they can exert an almost hypnotic and irresistible mental attraction on them and will themselves become tenacious friends or lovers, ready to sacrifice everything for their partners and be faithful to them for life. However, they are sometimes disappointed emotionally because their own high personal ideals cause them to demand more of others than is reasonable. And if they are deceived their anger is terrible. If disillusioned, they do not forgive.
Aquarians work best in group projects, provided that they are recognized as having a leading part in them. They have a feeling of unity with nature and a desire for knowledge and truth that makes them admirable scientists, especially astronomers and natural historians. They may excel in photography, radiography, electronics - anything connected with the electrical and radio industries - aviation and everything technical. On the arts and humanities side their progressive tendencies can be expressed in writing, especially poetry, and broadcasting, or as welfare workers and teachers. Some have gifts as entertainers and make good character actors (having an ability to mimic) and musicians. The more psychic among them possess healing gifts, especially in curing the mentally sick.

What am I the only virgin here? Oh my, I was hoping to find at least one other virgin left out there in the world! Er...oops...I mean Virgo..LOL.

I fit into my sign rather well actually...virgos are known for their scientific abilities. We are also very organized...OK so not all of us are!

All and all...I feel I fit under the virgin rule...LOL.

I am Saggitarius all the way...And I think it fits me pretty well, for the most part.

Adventure, travel, and a continual desire to expand horizons are marked
characteristics of Sagittarius. Planetary energy here is expressed freely and
unrestrained. At its best, Sagittarius is kind, generous, and projects its
energies as an educator. At its worst, this sign is often involved in more than it can handle and makes
promises it can't keep. Sagittarius is quite concerned with principals, moral standards, spiritualism, and
broadcasting opinions to the world at large.

Ron! I knew there was a reason I liked you!

Aquarians basically possess strong and attractive personalities. They fall into two principle types:

Ron - one shy, sensitive, gentle and patient;

Poet deVine - the other exuberant, lively and exhibitionist, sometimes hiding the considerable depths of their character under a cloak of frivolity

This could be a problem though:

Maybe we can take turns being the leader?

The "No U turn" sign!

Aquarius, and ms deVine... I HAVE to be the leader! Arrgghh, added to that, a Type "A" personality and what do you get?
A psychopathic organizer with dreams of world domination based on an oversized ego, mixed in with a caring heart that doesn't like to see people hurt, though they want everything their way even if it means other people won't like it, because that person knows what's best for everyone else, even if they can't figure their own lives out.


Are you scared now?
LOL

Cancer for me. Supposedly, Cancers are ruled by the moon (that explains my current mental condition), intuitive and artistic (to an extent), loving home and family life (although personally I prefer to be by myself), emotional and mercurial in emotions (that DEFINITELY describes me), can be hard to get along with (hits the nail on the head!), act shy to hide easily hurt feelings (yes), can be selfish (definitely so), and prefer to dwell on their own memories and dreams instead of facing reality (all the way!). Boy, this sign fits me to a T.

Brad (call me the party pooper) here.

Just curious: does anybody here read about their sign and say,"That's nothing like me. My personality is very different from THAT!"

Just so everybody knows, I've been labeled just about everything under the sun. In Japanese, I've been called 'rikutsupoi' which means something like 'too rational'. I live with it.

I was born in the year of the Dragon - and you can read all about the dragon at this web page: http://cat.nyu.edu/liaos/noshock/zodiac/dragon.html

In western astrology I am Taurus

The arrogance of the Celestial Dragon combined with the earthy stubbornness of the Bull........ yeah, pretty much me.

WOW!!
Great responses!!! Thank you all for getting in on this. I really do think there is something to this Astrology thing. Don't get me wrong, I'm not some weirdo...LOL but, I've heard many people say they felt their "sign traits" were pretty darn close. It looks as though many of you agree.
