Astrologically speaking

Astrology is one of this believe-it or not mysteries that always interested me. Today my best friend mentioned her "ascendent and moon signs" and I was off on a Google search. The scary thing is, the descriptions are pretty spot-on to a ridiculous extent. 

My ascending sign is Cancer apparently meaning,
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
That first sentence alone is probably the best description I could even provide about myself. 

My moon sign is Capricorn: 
This can be a difficult Moon sign, as stern Capricorn energy is not so comfortable in emotional settings. You’re a bit of a curmudgeon, old-fashioned in your values and tastes. You’re attracted to people and possessions that stand the test of time, and you may favor antiques or traditional furnishings. Slow to open up, you can be an emotional monk, content with your own company. You even thrive on melancholy spells that test your soul’s mettle. However, too much isolation can drive you into depression. Because you’re hard to read, people will mistake you for cold or standoffish. You just take your time to make a decision, weighing the long-term impact of everything. You respond to practical, thoughtful people who are emotionally mature. Romantic partners must fit neatly into your lifelong plans. You’re attracted to older lovers or established people who can help advance your goals. You might even start a business with your mate. With family, you maintain a dutiful spirit, especially with your parents. Your relationship with your father is a lifelong work in progress.
Weird weird weeeeeird!


  1. As a Taurus I know I can be bull-headed stubborn sometimes. It's nothing new for me, although I'm not sure how much stock to put in the zodiac. It does seem weird, however.

  2. @Jeffrey BeeslerFunny you mention being a Taurus- myself and 2 of my best friends are all Tauri born within 2 weeks of one another but have completely different personalities. Aside from the stubbornness and occaisional laziness, we're all unique. So we all looked into these rising/moon signs and it basically explained all of us and our differences to a t!
