Astrology has been around forever and a day (actually the third millennium BC). As a teen, just for fun, I’d read my daily horoscope in the Edmonton Journal. Dad had The Journal delivered to the house and he’d
sleep under read the whole paper every day.
According to the good people at Zodiac Signs Astrology, persons born under the sign CANCER share the following traits:
- Loyalty, Dependable, Caring, Adaptable, Responsive
- Moody, Clingy, Self-pitying, Over-sensitive, Self-absorbed
Oh dear, those are a mixed bag aren’t they? I’m not sure how you could be caring and self-absorbed at the same time? I might agree with some of them:
- Loyal, yes to a fault.
- Caring, well who doesn’t want to be caring?
- Moody, ok Mr. B might have commented at one time.
- Over-sensitive, definitely. My itty-bitty feelings do get hurt easily but that’s only because I’ve been so caring, dependable and loyal, how dare you hurt my feelings!
I must say, I’m not buying into any of this. I checked out three different horoscopes yesterday and I don’t know if these astrologers ever compare notes, but really, they couldn’t be more opposite.
Boomdee says: Right then, don’t hold back, the world’s your oyster. Be adventurous and don’t worry about the consequences. Sounds impulsive.
Boomdee says: What’s that? Avoid impulsive move’s, OK.
The Globe And Mail.com says:
Boomdee says: Don’t waste time trying to make sense of it because most likely, it will make no sense. Bingo, it all seems like silly nonsense.
Oh, here’s a bit of good news. Boomdee will be a loyal friend:
Oh, wait just a minute, what’s this? Look out, Boomdee is also hugely temperamental:
So there you have it in a nutshell. I agree, scary stuff to be sure. If I were to believe any of it, you’d figure I’m some kind of crazy, split-personality, prone to tantrums. Doesn’t that sounds like the Incredible Hulk? Honest, last time I looked, there were no torn-up cloths in my closet, but I have been told I have a green thumb.
I guess I’ll do my best to get through the day without the stars pointing the way. Rather than search for direction or meaning in the sky, perhaps I’ll just keep my head in the clouds but feet on the ground.
What about you? Do you read your daily horoscope?
