Celestial objects and the phenomena that surrounds them. What lies above the earth forever out of reach. From moons, to stars, galaxies, and beyond.
Proud to be a Leo
I was born a Leo. My mom heavily believed, and still does, in astrology and all things mystical. Our family computer had multiple sites dedicated to star signs saved under favorites. Checking my horoscope and learning about the traits of a Leo became part of my daily routine. Following in my mom’s footsteps; I wanted to know everything there was to know about astrology. Looking back, I had no idea how difficult that venture would prove to be.
I remember my mom scolding me for kissing my favorite bus driver on the cheek. Even then, she knew the love I had to give knew no bounds, so she went out of her way to try to protect me.
There are many difference aspects of the zodiac sign Cancer. While I can relate to quite a few, there are also some that I cannot relate to.
Is It Really All 'Written In The Stars'?
Soon a baby will be born in my family. And, believe it or not, the first question asked was about when the child would be born, and the second was the mention of their astrological sign.
The Misunderstood Zodiac Signs
Horoscope articles based on your Sun sign in newspapers, magazines, and on the Internet are usually misleading and make you think astrology is wrong. But when it comes to the interpretation of your birth sign and other astrological factors, it can make a little more sense.
How I Aquarius’d the Sh*t out of my Birthday
Every year on my birthday I pick a theme and plan the whole day around it. Last year I went “Around the World” with a Malaysian cafe for lunch, an Italian cake shop for dessert and rounded the day off with a trip to the (fictional) country of Zubrowka with my favourite movie ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’.
There is approximately 7.8 billion people on our planet as of the end of 2020 and still counting. Even with our unique traits and personalities do we share common ground between a multitude of things: music, toppings, literature- everything with multiple categories and genres that are classified separately and yet, unite us together. Just like the myriad of stars in the sky, we paint ourselves in at least twelve categories of the universe examined ever since Babylonian astronomy. The path of the stars somehow interpret our futures, and yet, if only we believe.
A Tour of Zodiac Signs
I have a theory that no matter what star sign we are, we can identify with traits from all of them. To that end, let's take a tour through the Zodiac signs and then see if I identify more with that than any other.
A Delicate Balance
Born at 6:26 am on October 11, 1963, this put me roughly in the middle of the seventh sign of the Zodiac circle, Libra. The symbol for this astrological sign is scales. The only inanimate object symbol from the Zodiac, it can be interpreted to mean both a measurement instrument and a symbol of justice, “the scales of justice” if you will.
I'm a Virgo. (Correction, I am a Virgo)
A topic about Zodiac signs? Gosh Vocal, you really know how to turn a girl on… I mean, need I say anymore? It’s no secret that I believe in Zodiac signs. Just ask the people who know me and you’ll hear nothing but how I bore them with my ramblings on the topic.
A Sagittarius, I Guess
I had to look up the spelling of Sagittarius. Was it two Gs and one T or two Ts and one G? I have never had to type out my astrology sign before. The information is something that I know despite never truly seeking it out. Zodiac symbols and the arcane knowledge of astrology have seeped into our culture like some sort of pervasive fog. I know what my astrology sign is but I don't have a clue as to what it means.
Oh Yes, I'm Aquarian
My Aunt and I are both Aquarians and one of the things that she takes seriously is astrology (she loves the Astrology Zone website by Susan Miller). I’m into a lot of the spiritual things that she believes in, but astrology wasn’t one that I ever paid attention to. I’m into the oracle cards, Law of Attraction, manifesting, spirits, signs from whatever higher powers or sources you want to call them, and the energy of crystals, but it’s only been within this new year that I started to actually explore these things for myself. The farther that I travel on my journey of self discovery through my spiritual practices the more that I’m realizing how much of these traits I embody. We definitely personify the curious, open-minded, and free-spirited traits that get merged with the sign of Aquarius. We don’t stay in the box that society deems “normal” or proper. We follow our own arrows and often get called dreamers that have our heads in the clouds, but we use our intellect and creativity to shape our futures that we dream of so regularly. People usually consider us to be different, or think our ways are too idealistic but our way of thinking and believing helps us to achieve amazing things that other signs might not have considered.
