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.
That explains so much.
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.
What is a sign? You mean like those things on the road?
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.
