"What's your sign?"I think if that was the first thing anyone ever said to me I would just crack up laughing and then walk away abruptly. I use to think that astrology was a crock of shit, but after many conversations with a lot of people who aren't too outlandish for me (my Dad included) I decided to read up on it and form my own opinion.
I've come to the conclusion that I primarily believe that astrology is legit, for the most part. I don't really believe in horoscopes though, but I think that generally people fall into the category of whatever their astological sign is. Here's mine:
Emotional and loving
Intuitive and imaginative
Shrewd and cautious
Protective and sympathetic
On the dark side....
Changeable and moody
Overemotional and touchy
Clinging and unable to let go
The sign of Cancer witnesses to the importance of roots, or origins, of considering the present in relation to the past. Many people feel they can ignore the past, yet feel something is lacking from their lives. Cancerians enrich the present by honouring its links to history.Whatever your circumstances, there is a place on earth, or an experience, or a group of people, or an interest, which can give you a sense of belonging, where you can feel at home and that you are a member of a family.
In their personal relationships they are mentally a mixture of toughness and softness, often emotional and romantic to the point of sentimentality in their fantasies; but in real life and in marriage, their loving is not so sentimental but tenaciously loyal. Even if they have affairs (and they may do so, for the male in particular is open to sensual stimulation), their first loyalty remains to spouse and family, of whom they regard themselves as the protector.
Cancerians have a retentive memory, particularly for emotionally laden events which they can recall in detail for years afterwards. They are strongly governed by childhood memories and since they live intensely in the past in memory and in the future in imagination, a chance meeting with someone for whom they had an unrequited love, even if they thought they had conquered the feeling, will easily rouse the emotion all over again.

I also don't know anyone who has more hobbies than I do. I actually turn new activities down on occasion so I won't get hooked. The last two years I've taken up playing Halo, throwing darts and playing poker. I collect about a million different things including candles, ninja turtle action figures,post cards, anything to do with Halloween, DVD's and magazines. There's probably more that I'm just forgetting about. It's sick, I know.
Anyway, I find astrology to be quite amusing if anything. I don't take it too seriously, but if you care to look up your sign here's a couple of decent sites that I found interesting.

By the way, if most of you think I'm weird due to the last two posts(you know Jesus and astrology) don't worry I'm probably a lot weirder than you think.
