So I don’t follow my horoscopes or zodiac sign readings regularly, but the past few days—because of Capturing Fire (details of the event listed a few posts earlier)—I have been around people who have talked about character traits attributed to people’s signs. Tonight my friend and the director of Capturing Fire and I got into talking queer and mushy gushy stuff, which was probably alcohol induced, but he asked me my sign.
The linkage of character traits to the signs perplexes me and I don’t know how much stock to take into it. I started to read my horoscope and zodiac readings specific to my birthday and birthyear and was surprised by the connections that could be drawn from them.
I don’t know if this source is “reliable” for chinese zodiac, but here’s the description of goats/rams…
“The receptive, gentle, and compassionate Goat (sometimes called Sheep) is the eighth sign of the Chinese Zodiac. These quiet and sometimes shy people have enormous compassion, an artistic eye, and emotions close to the surface. They often feel especially close to their families.”
Although I wouldn’t call myself quiet, I am sometimes shy. The other attributes seem applicable to me. My internet is slow, so maybe I will post more intriguingly accurate horoscope or zodiac traits I have.
