Not that any of us believes in Astrology, but...

...if you did, what would it say about you and your astrological sign?
is it true to you and who and what you are?
or is it completely wrong?
what sign do you fall under?
gad I feel like this is a bar pick up line.

I don't really believe in any of it myself. I more think that it is environmental as well as the time of year you're borne and your birth order.

But having said that, I feel as though I fall into the definition of what a person borne under my sign is like.

How bout you? And if you participate, please explain why it is applicable to you.

Not only am I a Taurus, I'm also "stubborn" Irish. What a combo!

However, based on taurus: Understanding Your Sun Sign - astrology.com this description. It's right on.

Very interesting, though. I'm just curious about the Zodiac and such. Not really a believer either. It's fun however it's played.

Not a believer in it myself. I use to, but things have happened that have changed my view point on that. But it can be entertaining at times.

I am very very much a Libra! However, I think of astrology as "just for fun"

Interesting story: one day while I was at work, a couple of the women on my shift were reading the horoscopes out of the paper. They had gathered together in the one place in the room that caused an impediment to foot traffic, forcing me to sidle along the wall to get from one side to the other. As I inched along, the thermostat caught me right in the middle of my back on one of my never-quite-healed scars, causing me to vocalize about my discomfort. Around this time, they got down to reading my horoscope which began, "Things are going on behind your back..." It was a weird coincidence, but seeing as how it's wrong way more than it has ever been right, I have as much credence for Astrology as I do for any other religion.

I think it's really just for fun, but like Katie, most Taurus descriptions I've seen do manage to be pretty right on for me.

I am not even close to being what they say an aries is. I am not a leader of the pack and I hate new things, basically shy. I'm not an aggressive or bold person. Although it is kind of interesting to read the paper at then end of the day and have my horoscope be right.

100% dead on for me...I believe in it. I've charted horoscopes for quite a few people that have turned out the same...100%.

I wasn't referring to horoscopes, being right on. I don't read those as they're never ever right. Not for my family members either. I think they're a shot in the very ''dark'' dark. I've only ever read one magazine that was anywhere remotely close. If you ever see a Town and Country even at a news stand, pick it up briefly just to read your horoscope. You may be surprised.

As for friends that I've met over the years with my same birth sign, or even weirder, my same exact birth date, we are not close in personality. I've had a few friends over the years that share my birthday and have told them, "You need to talk to your mother cause she lied to you about your birth date."
Polar opposites.

Anyone ever watch Montel to see Silvia Brown on there? I know this is off subject but I think she shoots in the dark and hopes to land 'anywhere' with her predictions about people. She is so vague, she could be talking about anyone.

gemini: Understanding Your Sun Sign - astrology.com

Some is right on and some are soooooooooooooo not me. I am not a talker - I don't even like to chit chat on the phone and I'm no good in crowds "getting to know" people. More the the latter stuff is so me it's even frustrating to see it in writing!!

I'd have to read other signs to see if Gemini comes closer to being me than any of the others.
