anything but a gemini baby?

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]

  1. I’m a virgo and my husband too and our sign fit us so well. I read astrology and horoscope weekly but i don’t trust them fully though. It’s us who makes our destiny,fate, luck, etc. . . Congratulations on your pregnancy.

    • Hi Brandy! I completely agree and don’t think we are ever bound by any sort of predestination or someone else’s ideal of us. I think we create our own realities. Thanks for coming by!

    • Oh, and I almost forgot! I appreciate the congratulations but I can’t quite accept them yet! We’re still trying to conceive. Maybe I should update my “about me” sidebar to make that more clear. Thanks for making me aware of that!

  2. Haha! It’s so funny because I’m a Gemini! 😉
    Geminis can be a little hard to handle sometimes…I have my Moon and Rising both in Libra so it kind of evens me out a bit. I’m not quite the social butterfly that most other Geminis are.
    I agree that Virgos are great though. My hubby is a Virgo and we complement each other pretty well.
    I hope no matter what sign your baby ends up falling under, he/she is happy and healthy!

  3. One of the gifts I will bring you after your birth is your child’s astrology chart and a companion report. You may be surprised at how “on target” it is…but it will be a chance for you to find out for yourself. Its kind of fun. There is a lot more to consider than where the Sun is. I’m sure your little one is going to be awesome…with such awesome parents as you two! 🙂

    • I’m so excited to see that! I don’t know a lot about astrology (beyond sun signs) but am really looking forward to it. We’re so thankful to have you share in the experience.
