Post 700: I am not what I thought I was...

In LA, everyone wants to know what your sign is.  According to reports, I am a Capricorn, since my birthday is December 27th.   However, I learned in Astronomy class senior year of college (the only interesting thing I got from that whole headache of a credit) that I am in fact NOT a Capricorn.  Based on how the planets were aligned on my date of birth, I am actually a Sagittarius.

I have no idea how everyone got everything  all mixed up, but if you visit this link you'll see that you're probably not the sign you've grown up to believe you are.  I meddled in astrology to "find" myself when I was younger so that I had something I could believe I was (as in traits).  Growing up, you want something to semi-define you, so being a Capricorn meant a whole group of things... yet none of them described me.

My friend Taryn was even said a few weeks ago, "Girl, you are so NOT a Capricorn.  I think you're a Sagittarius!"  She is one herself -- actually, she's not, but I'll geti nto that in a minute.

Anyway, just to compare, here are my traits according to if I was a Capricorn:

Practical and prudent  -- This is hilarious.  I am not practical, I'm a serial dreamer and believe anything can happen.  (Maybe that's why I'm attracted to practical people?)
Ambitious and disciplined --
Patient and careful --
Uh I'm so impatient... I have to work on this every day.
Humorous and reserved  --
Again, laughable.  Reserved?  Give me a break.  Humorous?  Maybe. :)

On the dark side....
Pessimistic and fatalistic  --  Both of these terms scare me.
Miserly and grudging --

The sign Capricorn is one of the most stable and (mostly) serious of the zodiacal types. These independent, rocklike characters have many sterling qualities. They are normally confident, strong willed and calm. These hardworking, unemotional, shrewd, practical, responsible, persevering, and cautious to the extreme persons, are capable of persisting for as long as is necessary to accomplish a goal they have set for themselves.

Independent?  Yes.  Rocklike?  No. No. No.  Confident?  Most of the time.  Strong willed for sure. Calm?  CALM?  Most consider me... not calm. (Outgoing?)  Hardworking (yes), Unemotional (definitely not), shrewd (debatable) -- the rest of the stuff is on point minus practical.

All of the ambitious and work stuff is true; the swing in emotions is not, neither is the personal relationships section.  "They are somewhat self-centered but not excessively so, wary and cautious around people they do not know very well, preferring not to meddle with others and in turn not to allow interference with themselves, thus they tend to attract people who do not understand them."  Uh, negative.

Not to mention it says ideal jobs for me are economists, financiers, bankers, speculators, contractors, managers and real estate brokers, which is quite hysterical.  I wouldn't be caught dead in any of those positions (I have no interest in them and would not be good at them). 

And the Sagittarius lowdown:

Optimistic and freedom-loving  (Yes.)
Jovial and good-humored  
(Just ask my familia about this one)
Honest and straightforward
(If we have a problem, you'll know about it)
Intellectual and philosophical
(Can't you tell by this blog? haha)

On the dark side....
Blindly optimistic and careless (This can interfere badly sometimes)
Irresponsible and superficial
(I like nice things, but superficial is the last thing I ever want to be -- and I'm responsible to fault, if that's possible)
Tactless and restless  
(Eh? I don't really know about these)

 They are basically ambitious and optimistic, and continue to be so even when their hopes are dashed. Their strongly idealistic natures can also suffer many disappointments without being affected. They are honorable, honest, trustworthy, truthful, generous and sincere, with a passion for justice. They are usually on the side of the underdog in society they will fight for any cause they believe to be just, and are prepared to be rebellious. They balance loyalty with independence.

Doubtful: "Sagittarians are modest", "Promiscuous".  

All the professional stuff is on target.

So, while each sign has some traits that relate and some that don't, Sagittarius, my true sign, is more on target with my goals, aspirations and what not.

What most people don't know is that there was a 13th sign that was eliminated for whatever reason (13 was an unlucky number back then).  This sign was what most people whom consider themselves a Sagittarius, born November 23rd- December 21st, fall under: Ophiuchus, born November 29th - December 17th.
