so let's start with this - i absolutely 100% believe in astrology. not that i read my horoscope, because those are so vague, but i definitely believe that your personality is shaped by what sign you were born under. me, with a november birthday, i'm a scorpio. and boy, am i. all the best and worst traits of the sign fit me to a t, just ask my mom. i see the world in black and white, have an opinion on everything, love to go against the grain just for the sake of it. i'm loyal to a fault and if you cross me, i'll inflict immeasurable pain on you. i know i love cancers (my boyfriend and my best friend), that sagittarius-es are flakes (ahem. incapable of being on time megan), and that when i butt heads with someone, they're bound to be a gemini (sorry geminis out there.)
of course i love reading all things scorpio because it's always so accurate, so i read desiree at simply sun signs all the time. after i read everything she's written down to what my signature scorpio drink should be, naturally, the next step - i got a chart reading. i told des my time and place of birth (ish, you know, i'm adopted, i don't know my time of birth exactly) and she plugged in all my info and 'read my chart.' she sent me a whole pdf explaining what everything means, like houses, chart types, and my rising sign. here's what it looks like, but obviously i needed an expert to decipher it.
i found out i have a bundle chart type, which is why most of the symbols are together on the left there. that means the planets were close together when i was born and that it increases my likelihood of having a very strong personality reflective of my sign. which is why i'm so scorpio. she also told me what the placement of each planet meant - for example, saturn is in scorpio which means i have obsessive tendencies and extreme stubbornness. heck yes. and neptune being in sagittarius means i'm likely to be a vegetarian because of my love for animals. yup! i think the only thing that wasn't spot on was that one of the planets should indicate a love of travel. i definitely don't love travel, but that may be because of my fear of flying. put me in a car and we're good to go anywhere.
and my favorite notes? (1) the sun is in the twelfth house (thank goodness she explains it all) which means i love uncluttering my life! we all know that's true. (2) "you are keen when it comes to business, but you still know how to laugh and go out for a glass of wine or ten." i just think it's amazing that someone who has never met me can predict all these little details of my personality based on the time and place i was born. there was all kinds of other insights as well, 5 pages worth, but a scorpio girl's gotta have some secrets. next up, having desiree do a relationship chart reading.
from someone who loves this stuff, let me assure you, it was not a let down! i loved everything i read so i highly recommend you do it too. and then post about it so i can read it. what sign are you?! do you believe your personality reflects your sign or am i the only one who predicts which friendships will last based on birthdays?
