Celestial objects and the phenomena that surrounds them. What lies above the earth forever out of reach. From moons, to stars, galaxies, and beyond.
I remember being a geeky and awkward sixteen year old girl who knew very little of astrological signs. I actually didn't even know my own sign until I started high school. And even then I didn't know much about it until one day in class these boys were talking about signs and the girls they dated and what they were like. This one guy spun around and asked me "so Gabby what's your sign?" and I told him I'm a Gemini and all the boys started looking at each other and laughing. I had no idea why until I asked one of my friends later and she told me that Geminis were passionate and freaky and a little crazy. I was shocked. I had never even been kissed or hugged by a boy so freaky I was not and crazy...well I can neither confirm nor deny this.
Let's Get Astro-Logical
I share my star sign with both Charles Manson and Hilary Clinton, what on earth does that say about me? I’m a Scorpio, of course, which means I am stubborn, deeply emotional (under the surface) and passionate. I can nurse a grudge for decades, I am secretive and hard to get to know, I am intense. I am a water sign which makes sense; I can spend hours in the bath and the sea air calms me. I am assertive and likely to be a leader in my field- wait a second… We’ve hit a dead end here. My own mother emails me links to courses with titles like “How to be more assertive” and in all my years on this planet, I have never been “manager material”. I thought this stuff was supposed to be accurate?
It's all a bit fishy...
Albert Einstein, Rupert Murdoch, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Steve Irwin, Steve Jobs, Drew Barrymore. What do I have in common with all of these people? We were all born between 20 February and 20 March. Other than that at first glance, I would say absolutely nothing! In most of those examples, their creativity and ambition far exceeds mine. In some, their intelligence far exceeds mine. They have all excelled in their chosen field whereas I have chosen to excel in an actual field where wellies are my normal daily attire. When was Rihanna last snapped in a sexy ensemble involving that kind of rubber?
Grabbing Life by the Horns
Wanna take a walk on the wild side? Think you can handle the fire without getting burnt? Well if so an Aries is whom you’ve been waiting for. Courageous, generous, honest, head strong, and optimistic; Aries are meant to forge the road for those to follow. We are natural born leaders; I mean why else do you think we’re the first sign of the zodiac. We believe in high risk for high reward, and love diving head first into all types of challenges. However, don’t expect a detailed plan on how we plan on conquering the world, because we don’t have one. Instead we use our spontaneous nature to make the best decision in the moment. Consequences? HA! Don’t make us laugh, minor setbacks that allow us to use our intuitive problem solving skills.
It seems like from the moment of conception, many have an opinion of how the child will grow up to be; however, I believe it is cosmic fate that determines this. The presumptions of the child may start off by aligning how the parents characteristics could be born inside the child already for example, "I am sure he will look just as handsome as the father" or "She will grow up to be a nurse like her mama". The parents may very well be factors that influence the child but nevertheless, I consider the child a star all on their own. I believe in something much higher, I believe that the notion of God is at hand when creating these beings. This statement however, should not be confused with the saying "there is only one true religion". Hi, my name is Jocelyn, I was born into being a Catholic and had a passion for astrology ever since I was ten years old. Being so interested in astrology made me an outcast with the Catholic community which made me frustrated as I did not understand why we could not just make sense of the two coexisting. Nevertheless, I am stubborn (hint) so I do exactly what I want to do based on intuition and prayer and I am daring so I decide to let the journey of life create me. The curiosity of zodiac signs all started when my mother used to say, "Oh your dad is a Pisces that is why it is so difficult to get a grip on him! he is neither here nor there" Nowadays, my mother does not believe in astrology at all; she is very much a fan of Jesus and no judgement at all, so do I in some sense. I decided to investigate my zodiac sign and since I was born December 29, 1994 I was calculated as a 'Capricorn'. I was convinced that this is true because silly enough at the age of fourteen I fell in love with a Taurus and decided that it was fate as the compatibility between a Taurus and Capricorn are outstanding and considered 'divine'. However, as I was growing up, I neglected to check up on my daily astrology as I was also starting to lose faith due to the fact that I could not really identify with being a Capricorn; I even started to be attracted to many fire signs especially Leos which did not make sense..."an earth and fire signs mixing...such blasphemy!". I felt like I was so much more; it was like a fire burning in my heart, and maybe so. From being a person that would nuisance people with astrology or say "What is your sign?" as an icebreaker, I decided to put that all to the rest until 2018. I visited Portugal to meet my distant relatives. We were having a lovely feast and the alcohol was simmering in our bodies so we all decided to mingle and chat since it was the first time meeting them and therefore, there was a lot to catch up on. I was sitting on the sofa, rethinking how I should've gone easy on the pasta and was interrupted by my cousin who decided to join me. He was slightly timid but gained the courage abruptly and said, "So what is your zodiac sign?" I was buzzed enough to not realize that this was the first time anyone has asked me this question as I am usually the one that leads in zodiac conversations. "Capricorn" I reply gently. "Hmm, well what about your rising" he asked. I was confused and uttered, "My rising...what exactly?" He said, "Oh wow! so you don't know it seems...astrology consists of many fragments so your sun sign may be Capricorn but your rising is what people 'view' you as...and of course, there is also the moon sign". At this point, I am starting to sober up from excitement as he was suddenly speaking my language, astrology. "Oh wow! That is so interesting, please, tell me more!" I say. "Hold on" he replies as he takes out his cellphone and taps the icon 'Safari' to type in "Calculate rising sign" he then hands me over his phone and says, "Here, answer the questions and details such as, where you were born, what time you were born...we will see what you get". I take the phone and say, "this is so cool...I am so curious", "Same here!". I input all the details; my mind was stunned...could this possibly change the way I view myself? We waited for the page to redirect to the results. I was slightly nervous...'palms are sweaty , knees weak, mom's spaghetti' and then results were in *drumroll* "No way!...I am a Sagittarius rising and Scorpio Moon?!" I was so excited that I was not able to hide my smile. "Thats cool! My sun sign is Sag, rising Virgo and Gemini Moon" He responds with enthusiasm joining me on this excitement.
Pisces: Dreaming of Reality
When thinking about the parts of my personality that haven’t come from my parents or my experiences; looking at my astrological sign seemed like an interesting place to start. Each sign has certain distinct characteristics that make them special. Looking at the traits of a Pisces was a good way to find out where some of my idiosyncrasies originated. I was really surprised just how Piscean I am.
Leo's Are Neato
Ever since I was a kid, I knew what I wanted to do. At first, as a youngster, my thoughts were "I want to be an Archaeologist!!" since I loved Dinosaurs so much. Then a few years later, I discovered a much more distinct, internal desire. We had just gotten cable, with Nickelodeon and Comedy Central. I decided right then, "I want to be a Comedian!!"
When the Sea-Goat Climbed Teide
Astrology. The study of the movements and positions of the stars is believed to influence our species and environment. You can trace back any ancient civilisation and observe their close relationship with the stars. Some saw them as gods, while others as ways of navigation. We can trace back the roots of astrology as far back as 32,000 years ago, between 30,000 and 10,000BC, to ancient cave paintings marked with lunar phases seen at the time. No matter what your view is on astrology, we can all agree it provides some phenomenal reading.
I'm Such A Sagittarius
According to my natal chart, I'm a Sagittarius Sun, Aries ascendant, Leo moon, making me a triple fire sign. That is a lot of heat for one chart. Luckily, I have other aspects that quell some of that fire, otherwise I would be a bit much. Every sign has a ruling planet, Jupiter reigns over Sagittarius. This combination is a match made in heaven. Jupiter is all about expansion, with a focus on personal growth, optimism, and new things. The Archer's (Sagittarius) innate yearning for adventure and experience is well-served by Jupiter's influence . The Archer comes from Greek mythology, where Sagittarius is depicted as a centaur. This half human and half man wielding a bow and arrow aimed towards the sky. Creating the unique magic of the Archer, which is both earthbound and otherworldly.

Star Signs, Do They Really Matter?
Horoscopes, palm reading, tea-leaf reading are all centered around the 12 Zodiac Signs. As you may know the Zodiac Signs, are not a modern invention and have a rather extensive history. For me, the constellations in regard to my personality, future or bad omens, honestly does not take top priority in my life. Nor do I use it to predict any future dealings, decisions or relationships I may be involved. Though for this challenge, come with me to take a small peek into the world of Astrology.
