I have lately been exploring astrology and horoscopes and found that while it seems far-fetched, mine truly seem to describe me perfectly. I thought I'd share some of my signs and meanings. Perhaps they will give my readers an insight to who I am. I'm also including descriptions of each kind of sign.
Sun Sign: Reveals things about a person's outer self
My Sun Sign is Capricorn.
"Sun in Capricorn has a natural tendency to reach a prominent position in society. This person has a serious attitude towards life, the ability to make plans of extreme complexity, and the aptitude to implement them very methodically and cautiously.
Such people build their lives in much the same way a skilled architect creates a huge building: they are very reliable but can also be very slow.
Sun-in-Capricorn individuals will shine in situations that require taking responsibility, or that have a significant complexity and many moving parts."
Moon Sign: Reveals things about a person's inner self
My Moon Sign is Pisces
"Intuitive, imaginative, compassionate, romantic, easily influenced. Likes emotionally rich situations, enjoys being creative. Hates strict rules and discipline.
Sensitivity, changeability, rich imagination - these are the distinguishing features of the Moon in Pisces individuals. They are so perceptible to others' emotions that can be deeply moved by a situation in which someone else would never notice anything special. They try to avoid strict order or rigid rules and prefer to create around them a kind of "creative chaos", as if protesting against requirement to put things on their places.
Rich imagination of the Moon in Pisces helps these people in creative endeavours, but their negative trait can be a lack of reliability and responsibility. They don't know to where and when they will swim away next time - but at least not to a place where they will be required to do something. If they meet an obstacle, the Moon in Pisces people will find a way around. They will never storm or forcefully demand anything. Quietly and softly moving from one situation to another, they will be looking for a place with a cleaner emotional atmosphere.
To release stress, the Moon in Pisces folks might want to stay alone in some romantic surroundings and to day dream. They are able to meditate naturally, to travel in their imagination to a different reality. It may be good for them to live or at least to spend their vacations near a body of water, best of all a sea or an ocean. Even by simply spending a little time at the sea shore they will immediately feel significant relief.
Unfortunately, many of the Moon in Pisces people are prone to smoking and alcohol as a way to get an emotional relief. This might help for a period, but their body is very sensitive to contamination and consequences of such an unnatural relief can be really detrimental.
The Moon in Pisces parents are kind and full of compassion, they are ready to understand and forgive anyone. They like fairy tales even more than their kids and can read them for hours. They will take an active part in development of creative abilities and imagination of their children. But one thing where they are not helpful is in teaching their children how to deal with the real world, how to be responsible and ordered. They have no idea about this themselves."
Rising Sign: The "us" we put out for others to see, the mask we wear
My Rising Sign is Cancer
You are dreamy, with a psychological nature that is oriented towards nostalgia for things past, towards your mother and your family. Your instinct and your need to protect yourself from the outside world are highly developed. Your inner life is rich, with a vivid and even unlimited imagination, a propensity to avoid all risks and to pursue security. You show your true face only to persons you can trust and you need the well being brought about by the nostalgia for the past.
With this Ascendant, you come across as emotional, sentimental, restful, sensitive, loyal, enduring, protective, vulnerable, generous, romantic, tender, poetic, paternal or maternal, dreamy, indolent, greedy and dedicated. You may also be fearful, unrealistic, evasive, passive, touchy, anxious, dependent, stubborn, lunatic, backward-looking, lazy, burdensome, impenetrable and a homebody.
Druid Horoscopes (Trees)
My Druid Sign is the Fir Tree
The Fir Tree, an evergreen, was held in very high esteem by the Druid people. In the dead of winter, when the countryside was dull and grey and blanketed with snow, the Fir was one of those trees that brought color and life to the landscape with its very cold, austere beauty. The Fir is symbolic of friendship, resilience, perceptiveness, longevity, and honesty. Fir people are very sensory-oriented, and are drawn to dim lights and the aroma of perfumes.
Fir people love antique jewelry and other old things, and they enjoy being part of majestic celebrations. Despite this last attraction, and because they are capricious and not easy to live with; they often experience a strong sense of isolation and can feel lonely even among large groups of people. Those born under this proud and resolute sign do not give up until they achieve their goal. They are not likely to fall under anyone's influence; their discreet nature prohibits them from sharing their opinions and makes them seem rather gloomy at times – especially because they are rarely ever satisfied with what they have.
Fir people can be very demanding and hard to negotiate with. Knowing and understanding their true value, they always try to get the most out of life, and usually they manage to achieve it.
If a Fir Tree person ever falls in love, the experience shakes his or her world to its core. Their love can be truly unconditional. This sign is also very intellectual. Fir Tree people have very analytical minds that lean toward science, yet they don't always achieve significant success. Sometimes they end up working in some other area that has nothing to do with their interests or education. But whatever they do, they take their work seriously, and they can occasionally reach lofty heights in their work because of their scrupulousness and outstanding work ethic.
When Fir Tree people have to choose between different options, they usually pick the most difficult path. That's because deep down they believe that it is their destiny to create difficult situations for themselves and for others. But whatever happens, Fir Trees are very noble, and one can fully rely on them. They remain optimistic through every endeavor, and never lose their faith. However, Fir Tree people usually neglect small things because they prefer to focus on the big picture instead.
Celtic Animal Horoscope
My Celtic Animal Sign is a Stag:
The stag Celtic animal sign has high ideals and aspirations. If you want to start a new project, get a Stag sign to help you. They will not be deterred from their vision. They are thorough, patient and their persistence insures their triumphs. When others have long given up, Stags buck their way past boundaries. They are proud, and rightfully so - they hold themselves in a regal way. They are naturally noble, like they came from royalty. This is not to say Stags feel entitled. Far from it. They believe in righteous hard work, and their integrity is their trademark.
I personally find all these things highly interesting. I plan on looking more into horoscopes and astrology.
