How do you relate to your sign?



  • I am most curious to know how people relate to the zodiac sign they were born under. Of course I know that generalizations are not always accurate but I do think that many people carry many of the characteristcs associated with their particular sign. I know that as an earth sign myself, I have always been attracted to a limited number of other signs although not necessary to be earth. I do know the signs that I am for sure not attracted to and though I never ask what sign someone is, I just get a feeling. Many times I have told them what they are. Also, I would find if interesting what you find most out of character for your sign. I know I have a few quirks! Look forward to seeing your responses.



  • I think I need to learn more about my sign to know. I'm a scorpio and I know a bit about it; which is mostly true but I would definitely want to learn more about what scorpios tend to do before I sided with or against it :0)



  • Hello, gladyouwroteme,

    I can tell you what I have learned of Scorpio, see the post below. I actualy saw this definition on the internet and it totally fit with the Scorpio that I knew. I had been in a relationship with this person and, man, was this character defintion ever so right! I am not saying all are like this, but in my experince it was ever so fitting. I found the Scorpian to be EXTREMELY intense and private. On the other hand, very inquisitive and wanting very much to know about you. Personally, I had to let the relationship go because I could not deal with the evasiveness of it. I like to be one on one, upfront and feeling. Scorpians are truly an intoxicting and seductive (seductive I mean draw you in) person to be around. How do you see youself?

    Loyal

    • Passionate

    • Resourceful

    • Observant

    • Dynamic

    Scorpio Weakness Keywords:

    • Jealous

    • Obsessive

    • Suspicious

    • Manipulative

    • Unyielding

    Scorpio and Independence:

    Scorpios are fiercely independent. They are able to accomplish anything they put their mind to and they won't give up. They are perfectly suited to being on their own. They are not social butterflies like some other zodiac signs and some actually prefer to live on their own that way there is never any issue of who controls what at home, they like to be in control.

    Scorpio and Friendship:

    Relationships with Scorpio are always complicated, just like the person, their relationships are a series of extremes, they can even be downright moody for no apparent reason. Scorpios are known for their possessiveness and jealousy but on the other hand, they are extremely loyal. Scorpios have an excellent memory and combined with an inability to let things go, they can hold a grudge against someone who did them harm forever, in fact a Scorpio rarely if never forgives and forgets. They will even go as far as get vengeance on the person. On the other hand, they will always remember a kind gesture forever and repay it. Any kind selfless gesture done to a Scorpio will gain trust and respect which is extremely important to them in any relationship, either romantic or not. The best advice is to be honest with a Scorpio friend and in return, you will gain an amazing friend you will never forget and who will be loyal to you and never make false promises. Their truthful and shocking sense of humor if different than that of any other zodiac sign and the Scorpio makes an amazing, powerful interesting friend that can be trusted.

    Scorpio and Business:

    Scorpios make excellent doctors, surgeons, scientists and leaders, they are perfectly suited to any form of business that makes a difference in the world, greatly impacts people and society and a most importantly, Scorpio has to be in a power position, this is why these careers are suited to the Scorpio, they all demand one person in supreme control giving orders and leading a unit of people/practices. In business, Scorpios tend to easily gather wealth, they make very wise business decisions and they are very conservative about spending their money. Scorpios are known for making money and hiding it, they will not announce it due to to fear that others will take the same route and becoming a possible competitor, or worse try to use the Scorpio to their advantage to use them for their money.

    Scorpio and Temperament:

    Scorpios are extremely ambitious, persistent and determined which is shown through a power hungry, controlling attitude. Not in a stubborn sense however, because a Scorpio will work for what they want and control will justified reasons. This is obvious to any onlooker. A Scorpio never gives up, they are so determined to reach their goal. The key to this success is their flexibility. They are able to re-survey a situation and take a different approach if necessary. This makes them very adaptable and versatile. Scorpios are fierce competitors, combined with their powers of observation and their excellent memory, they will recall facts and when necessary, bring them to the table at the time of need. They will win justly, with proper facts and arguments to support their thoughts and opinions. Scorpios are excellent at restoring order to a chaotic situation and they are just as capable of manipulating for their own greed and benefit. The un-evolved Scorpio is a very dangerous person because they use their powers to benefit only them and step on other people in order to satisfy their own greed.

    Scorpio Deep Inside:

    Scorpio is the most misunderstood of all astrology signs. They are all about intensity and contradictions. They like to be aware of a situation and always know what's going on, figuring this out with their probing mind, on the other hand, they are interested in the occult, the paranormal, conspiracy theories and other types of similar unknown mysteries. They are very capable of hiding their true feelings and motivations, they often have ulterior motives or a hidden agenda.

    Scorpios are all about control, they need to be in control at all times. To be out of control is very threatening, even dangerous to the Scorpio's psyche, when they control, they feel safe.

    Scorpios are very emotional, their emotions are intensified, both good emotions and bad. Negative emotions of jealousy and resentment are hallmarks of this turbulent astrology sign. On the other side, Scorpios are well known for their forceful and powerful drive to succeed and their amazing dedication. Scorpios are constantly trying to understand their emotions through finding a deeper purpose in life.

    Scorpios are very intuitive, but not as in a psychic sense, more as intuitive into the human mind, they have a great understanding of the mystery and the power of the human mind.

    Scorpios have a fear of failure which they keep hidden extremely well, should their confrontation not be successful, or their career fail, they will simply use their adaptive skill to quickly move and and leave the bad experience behind. Do not ever expect them to fess up or share their tale with anyone however because this shows signs of weakness and Scorpio always wins, they are always the self-proclaimed best! One of the reasons they seem like they always accomplish their goals is because they set tangible short-term goals that they know they can accomplish, they know what they are capable of and this is what they go for.

    Scorpios are very weary about trusting anyone, a person needs to gain their trust and this gets built up over time and once all the 'trust tests' have been passed, Scorpio loves deeply and intensely. Underneath the cool exterior, energies and emotions are constantly flowing but the Scorpio deals with this be channeling this into useful activities, hobbies, relationships or a career. This is never apparent to the outside observer but knowing this fact explains why Scorpios are so passionate about whatever it is that they are undertaking. Scorpios have powerful instincts and they trust their own gut feeling which is another reason why a Scorpio seldom fails.

    The ongoing lesson in life for those born under the Scorpio zodiac signs, is to channel their powerful energy into positive goals and not succumbing to the darker forces in life such as manipulation and greed, they will then have great success in their life and have a clean, happy conscience and a circle of friends they can trust and hold dear to them.

    Scorpio in a Nutshell:

    Scorpio is the astrology sign of extremes and intensity. Scorpios are very deep, intense people, there is always more then meets the eye. They present a cool, detached and unemotional air to the world yet lying underneath is tremendous power, extreme strength, intense passion and a strong will and a persistent drive. Scorpios have a very penetrative mind, do not be surprised if they ask questions, they are trying to delve deeper and figure things out and survey the situation. They always want to know why, where and any other possible detail they can possibly know. Scorpio's are very weary of the games that other people try to play and they are very aware of it. Scorpios tend to dominate and control anyone that lets them, or anyone that they find weak. The person that a Scorpio respects and holds close to them is treated with amazing kindness, loyalty and generosity. On the outside, a Scorpio has great secretiveness and mystery. This magnetically draws people to them. They are known to be controlling and too ambitious but only because they need control for this makes them feel safe.

    Do you relate?



  • I do relate... it's really weird though, I am very very open about who I am, what I"m feeling, my past etc. I've only been really guarded with one person and it was the man I married. I have an innate sense of picking up on peoples issues, I"m extremely perceptive.

    I'm very sensitive but when I'm falling apart I look like a rock- with a big fat smile on lol... I can be intense but not nearly as intense as a lot of people I know. I like my independance for sure. I do dig deep to find greater meaning adn Im not easily challenged emotionally by most people-actaully, it's a huge frustration of mine because I like having deep solid connections not merely existing with someone. I don't think I'm very controlling but I can manipulate-even though it's not intentional most of the time.

    I hate failing-so much so that sometimes I don't even try! How aweful is that! lol...

    I agree with almost all of this except the controling part. I don't try and control other people but boy oh boy do I hate it when someone tries to control me :0)

    thanks for posting this! It was fun!



  • Thanks for your response, quite fun, is it not? Although you may be very open, you also can be very intense! Scorpians have an inate sense about picking up on other peoples feelings, but maintain a guardness about themselves. I find they are insatiable about other peoples intermost feelings and want to know as much as they can, without revealing to much of themselves. I think the manipulation thing can just be a sense of self protectiveness, does not have to be a bad thing. Yes, your sense of failing is a true trait, I know you don't like that at all! But, my friend, you don't fail, that is only your perspective. What is the quote, "change your perspecitve, change your life?". You do not fail at anything! Jus learn! You may not agree with the controlling part but think about it, does it fall under manipulation? That is a way to control. I am sure you hate it when somone tries to control you, that is just Scorpian nature! Whether you know it or not, you need a sense to exert a sense dominance but this sense allows you to give freely bedcause you are the one who is in control . Let me know what you think!



  • RedPetals,

    My horoscope is not very accurate, and I have read three different ones everyday for fun for years. I am a 23rd of June birthday, so depending who you talk to, that could be a cusp birthday. It would explain why I do not fit in so neatly into the Cancer qualities.

    I also, at least I like to think, I live towards my positive qualities, while mitigating my negative qualities. So that also can be why I do not fit into the mold so well (I do believe freewill trumps all).



  • Red Petals whats yours?

    Mine is cancer, a lot of it fits, but when I figured out the rising, moon, I always get these mixed up, I think moon was leo, rising was gemini, the leo tends too come up in certain traits I have too. My boyfriend is Leo, yet seems more cancer,or even virgo, which are both in his chart. I can see how Brian might think the June bdays might be a bit of a cusp, I've known others who felt like that a bit too.



  • Yes, I totally believe in free wil, no doubt about that, l but somehow I think you might be closer than you think to some of your charactertistis.....Of course your own personaliaty could be more dominat and have more but I am seeing a thread with you....In a good way...



  • Brian, did you think I was a Scorpian? No, I am not......just responding back to one.....



  • oh, your virgo RedPetals? I have a softspot for virgos, strong, and wise.



  • Yes, a virgo. Why a softspot? Hopefully not a bad relationship issue! Although I carry many traits of a Virgo I find that I am also INCREDIBLY different in others. As Brian said, free will? Yes I am very willful! And you?



  • RedPetals,

    A Scorp? Nope says right there you are a Virgo above your name. LOL

    So what do you see as accurate, good and bad, in relation to me being a Cancer?



  • I have a soft spot, as in I am fond of virgo in general, had good experiances with this sign.



  • I grew up between two virgos, birthdays one day apart, they were very loving, as most virgos I have met are, thats where my fondness for them comes from.



  • Bluecat, that is very nice to hear, glad you had a good experience with Virgo's! Siblings? And yes, we can be very loving, not always so critical as the sign says! Maybe more critical on ourselves, I know I tend to be.that way. And more about you?



  • Brian,

    LOL, yes my icon says virgo! Huge blush, did not even think about that! Can be a bit blind at times, guess that was one of them! Funny, I was just talking with someone about that quality today, she had told me I could at times be "blissfully naive", or as in her words, "virgo the virgin of - see what is right in front of you because sometimes you just miss it!". This was not meant or taken at all in a bad way or by any means meant to be harsh or judgemental, but this person knew of my upbringing and in her point of view attributed it to that. When one raises themselves one is always learning! Will get back to you on the Cancer sign thing, I do have an opinion on that as I have a few close Cancer friends. Bottom line, very good sign! Emotinoal and giving.



  • Hi RedPetals could you give some insight on my sign which is Aqua, 1/23. Thanks....



  • RedPetals, I am most definately a Cancer (7/2) and I have often thought how much better off I would be had I been born under another sign. I think I feel things entirely too much or maybe just too personal?



  • Hello Aqua,

    Sure, let me think about you a bit. I have to honestly say I have not had much experince with Aquarians, I have only known a few. I guess we don't tend to run in the same zodiac circles! Get back to you on this one.



  • RedPetals,

    Yes you being a Virgo was never a question, as your icon says so. Some Virgos icons are not so straightforward and I had to check and see what they were, but not the case with you. LOL

    I would be interested in your insights on me and being a Cancer.
