Coming from someone who studies Astrology for fun: Nao, if you were a Virgo I wouldn't be surprised.

It's in French but it basically explains my situation: I was born about an hour before we 'officially' switched to the Aries sign, which makes me a Pisces. However, I only discovered that right before I wrote the blog post. Earlier, I was 'just' an Aries because I'm from the usual Aries date. I didn't know you had to take the *hour* into account when calculating your sign. Which usually isn't a problem except of course if you happen to be born on a transition day... Well, I'm from the first day of the zodiacal calendar, if you may say.

So, I lived all my life as an Aries, and I'm a 100% Aries, and none of my personality is even remotely close to that of a Pisces. I've known several Pisces and never got along well with them. (Believe me, I've lived with one for over 5 years...)
So yeah, ever since that day, I have absolutely no belief in zodiacal signs. My belief is rather that we are *conditioned* to see what our 'sign' is about, and then conform to it, or at least its main aspects.

You're a March 21 too? :)
I don't know many people who were born on the same date! Except for the usual celebrities: Timothy Dalton, Matthew Broderick (the only winning move is not to play, eh!), Ayrton Senna, Gary Oldman and my personal favorite, Nobuo Uematsu.

Okay we definitely need to create an Aries gang and a Libra gang here..!

Ho boy; I'm a Pieces :sad:  My first real boyfriend was an Aries, and we never got along.  I was in my daydream world and he was always using that to get what he wanted from me.  Fire signs and Water signs obviously don't mix.

But I at least hope I can break the "curse" and somehow handle the heat. :giggle:

EDIT:  Nao, you might be on the "cusp" of both signs, meaning you have some traits of both.  If you are born just one hour before it chimed to the Picean date, then yeah you're definitely on the cusp.

I was born around an hour and a half before it was officially Aries time, but it doesn't matter much -- I am not like a Pisces in any way. At least from the descriptions I found... Which are often contradictory, because, well, it's all bullshit anyway innit?
If anything, I should be a Capricorn or Aquarius if we have to consider the Sun's position in the sky... :^^;:

Well, astrology is fascinating..but its rather useless IMHO if you only look at the sun-sign. People in same sign can be vastly different, depending on where their ascendant falls. Myself I am a Libra with a Sagittarius ascendant, which might make me seem possibly more like the latter than the former.

That explains so much.
I would think so heh, though I am sure we are not thinking about the same thing.

So whats your ascendant then, Arantor? What sign is whats radiating off of you, though inside still being a libra..?

My ascendant sign is Sagittarius, and to quote the one site I just pulled up to help me figure it out...
Quote
Your psychological nature is extroverted and independent, oriented towards expansion and sociability. You have the soul of a leader, energetic and active. Your charisma and your drive are fully integrated in the collective life. Indeed, as an action-oriented fire sign, you challenge yourself and succeed in accomplishing the task straight away. Sagittarius is hard to follow because his spirit and his independent mind constantly lead him to go further and higher.

With this Ascendant, you come across as charismatic, fiery, energetic, likeable, benevolent, tidy, jovial, optimistic, extraverted, amusing, straightforward, demonstrative, charming, independent, adventurous, straightforward, bold, exuberant, freedom-loving.

But you may also be irascible, selfish, authoritarian, inconsistent, unfaithful, brutal, unreliable, reckless, tactless or disagreeable.
I think that's entirely fair.

What is a sign? You mean like those things on the road?
Yes, those are signs.

Was that sarcastic? If not, you'll want to look up the load of crap that's  called the Signs of the Zodiac/astrology.

My ascendant is Aquarius. And I have a book that describes Aries/Aquarius exactly as I am. When I found out I'm a Pisces, I read about Pisces/Aquarius and the description was totally not me.

So, either astrology 'works' and there's a 2-hour delay in star sign calculation that we should notify the IAAOCA (International Astrology And Other Crap Association) about it, or people lied to me about the exact time of my birth, or it's just as I said: a load of bollocks that you tend to 'stick to' and modify your personality based on what they say of you.
Or something.
