Getting My Chart Read

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?

  1. So much yes! I loooove zodiac. I think you and I have actually already talked about it a bit, can't remember when, but we have. Maybe it was last year when I did my birthday/zodiac sign post. My sign is cancer, and yep I AM a cancer, pretty much to a T. :-D
    I'd love to have a chart reading, I don't think I've ever had one.

  2. ok.. don't hate me, but I'm just not into this stuff at all. i read somewhere that your signs actually changed since they were established. plus mine is always just so wrong! maybe if something were more accurate it would convince me!

    1. You should let me have a shot at your chart. Maybe I'll make a believer out of you ;)

  3. Oddly enough, I don't believe in horoscopes, but I am an Aries through and through. I've always thought it would be fun to have my chart read like this!

  9. I'm a Taurus which fits me almost perfectly, except for the patient thing. I'm in no way patient.

    Tyson is a Capricorn, the zodiac says we're made for each other. :)

    The chart reading sounds super interesting plus I followed her blog!

  10. Hmm. This is interesting. I'm curious to see what mine would say. :)

  11. I have my chart reading and look at it all the time. LOL It's weird how things are so attributable to your moon and sun sign.

  12. how interesting. I dont believe in horoscopes either, and sometimes I read things about my sign that seem really true and other times couldnt be further from the truth, so who knows. now I want a chart reading.

  13. Ha that's cool :) I am an Aquarius to a T as well.. It's very interesting how accurate it can be about ones' personality, I definitely don't listen to the daily horoscope nonsense - but I love the trait characterization between signs. Happy Hump Day Stephanie! -Iva

  14. I love reading about my sign (Cancer!) and nodding my head along with all of the traits. Having my chart read would be fun - going to check it out now!

  15. I really enjoy all of that stuff, as well as reading the horoscopes. I'm a capricorn and I am quite stubborn so I think the horoscopes describe each person's personality traits quite well.

  17. I am an Aquarius and totally buy into this stuff and Kent is a Leo and it should be his picture there.

  18. I fit the Virgo sign so much that it is hard not to believe in it. I also had a chart as to what signs are am compatible with and would figure out what exes fit into and funny it was usually right about the compatibility signs.

  19. I'm into it too. My favorite thing to do is look up peoples birthdays in the Big Book of Birthdays my mom gave me. It's legit.

  20. Something I've always been interested in, but I've never had my chart read. I might have to do this - I want to see how accurate it is!

  21. ooo this is so interesting! i believe in astrology to some degree. having a chart done seems like fun! also, i didn't know you were a vegetarian?! me too! i'm an aquarius and i don't know much about my sign, so i'm not sure if i fit all of the characteristics.

    xo,

  22. I love astrology and this sounds like fun! I want to do it!

  23. I'm an Aries and stay pretty on point with what the books say about the sign. I am going to have to do this though now!

    ReplyDelete
  24. So that's why you love me?? I'm a cancer! Haha... Anyway - I seen when Whitney (Yoga Pants) did hers and have been wanting to do one ever since but just haven't gotten around to forking the cash for it.... Maybe I should though... maybe next paycheck!? Lol

  25. I am always so fascinated by astrology. I am a Leo and I posses most of the qualities of a Leo but not all of them. I married a Taurus and I am not really sure if that is a good thing or not haha. Most things I read tell us we are alike in a lot of ways about needing attention and affection but both stubborn. Which is true! Its been a while since I have looked at everything and thought about it, perhaps it is time to dive back in!!!!

  26. I love to say Im a Virgo ... but that is as far as my sign/star/horoscope-ness goes. I have no clue about any of it but it sure was interesting to read!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love this. I want a reading. I am a total Leo.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I used to love reading my horoscopes, especially because a lot of the description of my sign is fitting. But then I kept waiting for some big business venture to land in my lap and bring millions to my wealth. LOL. When it didn't happen I started to realize it was just general and didn't really fit me all the time. Think I'm gonna go check it right now!

  29. oooh this is so interesting! i would love to learn more about my chart/sign.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I am a Leo through and through! I love this stuff!
