I’m definitely on time today! Proud of myself. (At least I’m getting things done.)
Post about your zodiac sign and whether or not it fits you.
I’ve never been a zodiac person. My only experience with any sort of zodiac sign is figuring out what animal I am on the Chinese calendar. (I’m a dog by the way.) For this one, I actually had to do a little bit of research. I was born on August 7th, so I’m a Leo. All my information is borrowed from: http://www.ganeshaspeaks.com/leo/leo-traits.action
This source says my positive traits are: energetic, optimistic, straightforward, and loyal. I think the funniest part of this is that is says Leos are “ruled by Sun, the source of infinite energy.” If I had infinite energy, I wouldn’t be addicted to coffee. While I agree that I’m a very energetic person, especially when I tell a story in real life, I run out of energy VERY quickly. Being around others saps my energy. As a result, I can spend only a few hours at most in a big group before I start to get grumpy.
The source says my negative traits are: headstrong, egotistic, possessive, dominating, impatient, and arrogant. Now, I don’t think I agree with most of these. I’m not headstrong. I may have a firm stance on my core beliefs, but I like to think I could be swayed by a good, rational argument. It has been done before. My possessiveness is attached to things I’ve bought rather than people. I can share people. They have their own will. However, if I’ve worked hard for something, I do not want to share, especially with my younger siblings. I want my game system or computer or new dress to stay looking nice. I may prefer to be a leader, but I don’t always dominate a situation. I like to delegate to others. I don’t like the stress that comes with leading. While I do like for everything to go my way, I’ve learned that others often have good ideas. If no one gives any input, I suppose you could say that I dominate. And the arrogance… I’m not. That’s all I have to say on that matter.
“Amazingly creative in almost all spheres of their lives, Leo individuals are independent and dominant.” – This strokes my apparently fragile ego.
“The word ‘doubt’ or, for that matter, ‘self doubt’ is not a part of a Leo’s dictionary.” – This is a lie. I doubt myself in almost every aspect of my life.
“Their ruler Sun bestows them with sparkle and zest.” – Not only am I sparkly, but I’m zesty as well.
“Nonetheless, the never say die attitude of Leos helps them take their failures and setbacks in a positive stride.” – I tend to make fun of my failures. Does that count?
I apologize to any of my readers who perhaps take their astrology seriously. Me? I think you can find a grain of truth in anything if you believe enough, but I certainly don’t want to put my faith in the stars. Leos seem aggressive and domineering, two things I don’t identify with myself. While I do appreciate the fact that my sign is royal and noble (and sparkly), I certainly can’t take it seriously.
