The Zodiac Signs

Hi. It's me again... it's been a while since I wrote a post. My mocks went well. I remembered my calculator in the maths exam this time... ;) 

Recently I have been quite fascinated by the 12 signs of the zodiac. I was reading up on my sign's characteristics and there are a few which sound like me but a few that are no where near the truth. I don't really believe that a zodiac sign determines who you are or anything, I merely find them a bit of fun.

I am a Capricorn. This means I should be responsible, patient, ambitious, resourceful and loyal. I would only say I was two of those things. Being a Capricorn also means I should have the negative traits of being dictatorial, inhibited, conceited, distrusting and unimaginative. And again, those descriptions aren't all accurate traits of my character, well... I like to think so anyway.

What I really find funny is how some zodiac signs are seriously hated. If you were to look up your sign on Urban Dictionary (I wouldn't recommend this), then you might see some negative descriptions of your zodiac sign. For example, Capricorns are called arrogant, selfish people who only talk utter rubbish... (and that's putting it nicely). Obviously not all Capricorns are like this... I like to think this is the case for myself but then some people may disagree!

What I find even funnier is all the photos describing the zodiac signs in different situations or when they are summarized. For example:

Hilarious aren't they?! I can't help but think of the zodiac signs as individual people with very distinct characters. Just the thought of the zodiac signs (which I imagine as people), being in one room together cracks me up because they are all very different with very different personalities, e.g. You have the stereotyped boring, stubborn, money grabbing Taurus and the stereotyped creepy, intense, sex maniac Scorpio and then the stereotyped free, slightly idiotic, egocentric Sagittarius and then of course we have the stereotyped arrogant, serious, social climbing Capricorn. I could go on saying more... Although I am not really the 'stereotypical' Capricorn... It is still very funny to see the distinct characteristics of each sign in different situations etc as seen above. 

To end this post, I will leave you with the three descriptions I think best describe each zodiac sign (They may not necessarily be true so don't get offended):

Aries: hot-headed/ Energetic/ Dedicated
Taurus: Stubborn/ Protective/ Patient
Gemini: Changeable/ Talkative/ Affectionate 
Cancer: Loyal/ Emotional/ Kind
Leo: Confident/ Melodramatic/ Domineering
Virgo: Obsessive/ Smart/ Analytical
Libra: Polite/ Dependent/ Indecisive
Scorpio: Enigmatic/ Freaky/ Powerful
Sagittarius: Fun/ Optimistic/ Selfish
Capricorn: Controlling/ Hard-working/ Arrogant
Aquarius: Weird/ Friendly/ Aloof
Pisces: Mystical/ Unpredictable/ Oversensitive

What do you think of the zodiac signs? I would love to hear your comments.
