I don’t really believe in astrology, but when I occasion to read about the classic qualities of a Virgo, the description always seems to fit me pretty well. Fits hubby (another Virgo) well too, I think. I’ve also met many other people who appear to fit the descriptions of their signs extremely well. In particular I think of my mother, who I love dearly and who (in the good and bad ways) might be seen as the quintessential Taurus, and an ex-boyfriend who encapsulated (when I knew him at least) the very worst qualities of a Gemini.
So although I always say I don’t believe in horoscopes, I recently announced to hubby that I will be happy having a baby under any zodiac sign other than Gemini or Taurus. (Hubby thinks that’s silly, but he’s much more level headed than I am…another Virgo trait! Whaddya know?) Even I know that’s completely silly, deep down. I was glad to be reminded of how silly it really is today while reading a friend’s blog.
My friend’s latest post mentioned that she is a Gemini. Hmm, I didn’t know that. Well, this woman is friendly, creative, bright, loving, and cares very deeply about her family and friends. I would be happy to have a daughter like her someday. In fact, according to this astrology website, some of Gemini’s best traits are that they are adaptable and versatile, communicative and witty, intellectual and eloquent, and youthful and lively. The site says a Taurus’s best traits include being patient and reliable, warmhearted and loving, persistent and determined, and placid and security-loving. My friend is all those things described of the Gemini, and my wonderful mother is all the things described of the Taurus.
So the truth is, hubby and I will be lucky and blessed to have a baby under any sign.
Besides, horoscope is all poppycock anyway. [wink]
