What's My Sign?

I wanted to join in with Nadine and Laura yesterday but I didn't, so today is okay, okay?



I used to love reading my horoscope when I was younger, until one day I accidentally read a different sign and realised I could apply that to my life as well. I was confused.


Since then, I haven't relied on my horoscope to tell me what's going on in my life. I probably never should have because I never really felt like I was an Aquarius.

According to the interwebs, here's what an Aquarius is all about:

Intelligent - I don't think I am stupid, but I certainly don't think I am what one would call intelligent.

Unpredictable - um, did you read this? I am the most predictable. My life is super crazy.


Eccentric - this is the one that I was always like, whelp, so not me. I am a little weird, but I am not eccentric.

Humanitarian - I mean, I don't not want to do things, but I'm no Princess Di.

Life of the party - um, nope.


Loyal - in my biased opinion, I am very loyal.

Likes to be different - I don't think I am out there, or different.

Friendly - hahahaha.


Inventive - nope.

Original - the least original person I know.

Unemotional - um, absolutely, positively, ridiculously NO.


Honest - well. I mean I guess most of the time.

Sarcastic - yes.


Stubborn - KC says yes.

Rebellious - nope. Give me all the rules and let me follow them.

Large circle of friends - I have never had a large circle of friends. Ever ever.

Witty - KC says I'm witty so I'll take his word for it.


I found this:


and I just want to know, who doesn't hate these things? Who actually likes overbearing people or small minded people?

I took this quiz and this happened:


Am I even an Aquarius? I just don't know, buzzfeed. I just don't know.

Then I took this quiz and I did a little better:


Though that one said things that I have never heard of being associated with an Aquarius before, like 'your friend group is a tight knit, small circle' and 'you have no patience for big group socialising' and of course, 'you have resting bitch face'.


Maybe I am an Aquarius after all.

Just a friendly reminder that the 2nd check in for the Literary Ladies Summer Challenge is tomorrow. You don't have to link up if you don't want, but you will have to link up for the final check in on the 21st of September in order to be eligible for the wildcard prize (and of course, you'll need to finish by then as well).


How bout you? Are you anything like your sign?

  1. I haven't read anything about my sign in so long I have no idea what it even says. Now I really want to go see how many traits I match up to with my sign!

  2. I thought about linking up yesterday, but I'm like you and feel like I dont identify with my sign very much. I like how you wrote this post. I struggled for about 20 minutes to write mine and then just gave up :( When I was a kid I used to read my horoscope in the newspaper everyday and I really believed that what was written was going to happen to me haha. I would be so upset when it didn't.

  3. I'm a Cancer and I don't really identify with it at all! I'm supposed to be sensitive, nurturing, and cautious- but I'm the opposite. I like other personality tests that really describe you to a T! Horoscopes are fun and interesting but they don't really seem to apply much to me :(

  4. Oh totally! i'm a leo and it's exactly like me to be fiery and strong minded. also, its so funny but all my girlfriends that I have had for many years that I still am friends with today are all leos as well! guess that's why we all get along so well as friends!

  5. This post is great. I'm an Aries but like you, just partly an Aries. It's crazy how much my horoscope matches my personality and how much it is the opposite of my personality!

  6. Hhaaha this is so funny. That's exactly how KC feels about horoscopes. I kind of love it... but I don't put too much weight on it.. it's kind of just a fun predictor. That doesn't necessarily predict, but maybe puts a new idea in my head? I dunno. :) I am a Cancer. Emotional. Homebody. Caring. Creative. Faithful / Generous. I am definitely emotional, and I definitely have times where I only want to be home. But my wanderlust is STRONG - like July travel sucked and took all of my time and money and now I'm like can we fit in 2 more trips before xmas? lol So, I'm not very sure about that one. Caring, sure. But I don't feel overly caring... and I don't really feel "nurturing or maternal" which is often what the horoscope stuff says. Maybe someday... hopefully someday bhaha. Creative yes. Faithful & Generous - to a fault. I'm bad at cutting un healthy friendships and expressing my needs because I can't stop giving. Who knows. Sometimes astrology is fun. Sometimes it's ridiculous. I'm not planning anything big based on it. ha :) XO - Alexandra

  7. I used to be pretty intrigued by horoscopes in magazines but truth be told their "predictions" are so vague that they could pretty much relate to every single person. I am a capricorn and they are supposed to be pretty stubborn, which I guess is true (according to others).

  8. This is hysterical! You're inspired me to go check how closely I relate to a Pisces now.

  9. "I don't NOT want to do things..." lmao Best line! I'm the same way. I try. But then I get lazy. lol :)

  10. My personality definitely ticks a LOT of Cancer boxes, but some of the things that are supposedly "typical" don't fit me at all. I think it's true that people born around the same time are similar (at least as far as I've seen), but I have yet to meet anyone who fits neatly into an astrological box :D

  11. Haha! Ron Swanson is the best! I knew you'd come up with a witty way to do the link up! :) Loved getting to read this!

  12. Ummm but you do have a large group of friends...say hello to all the people that comment on your posts every day :):):) And that gif is the perfect part...more food less people just yes!!!! I don't identify with everything Leo but a lot of it holds true. Thanks so much for linking up with us!!!!

  13. I love that you admit you might be honest, hahaha.

  14. my sign is pretty spot on - when you read between the lines, it says "you give no fucks, you work hard for what you want (giving no fucks) and can be a bitch". yep.

  15. I haven't read a horoscope since my days of reading Seventeen and Cosmo because I was always confused by them, but they are definitely interesting! But the Emma Watson and 2 Broke Girls gifs win all the prizes <3

  16. I have absolutely no idea what makes a typical Taurean, having never put much weight behind the whole shebang before. So I took a quiz. I got 10/23 which apparently makes me a 'pretty typical Taurus'. Not sure how they worked that one out! And then I got distracted by '19 Dreams Every “Gilmore Girls” Fan Wishes Would Come True' so...... that was the extent of my foray into astrology!

  17. hahah those quizzes are so funny. im on the cusp of cancer and gemini which are totally different than each other so yah i guess i relate to some of the things ;) xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  18. Wow, are you even an Aquarius?! Haha! I am a typical Virgo. Organized and Type A.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love the relations to the quizzes, so true! People are so different and independent they embody traits from all!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I so laughed that test said, "Are you even an Aquarius?" that's the best!!!
    I don't even know the traits of my astronomy sign.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm a Leo, but that's the extent of what I know about my sign, haha!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I had to look up to see what characteristics of my sign (Cancer) even were. That's how out of touch I am with everything zodiac related! Sounds like you get to just pick and choose what you want to be since 'you're not even an aquarius!' :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. This made me LOL! I don't ever read/pay attention to mine- partially bc my birthday falls on 2 signs. Or at least, I've seen my birthday be considered 2 different ones so like WTHECK am I ?! Going to take quizzes now.... bc you know, priorities!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well I'm not an Aquarius, but I identified with the same traits you did, and none of the others. Big group of friends? Rebellious? These are sooo far from the truth for me. Now I'm going to search for a Scorpio Buzzfeed quiz...

  25. Surprisingly, I've not given much thought to my astrological sign before. I am an Aquarius, like you, but that's pretty much as far as my thought processes have taken me. I used to read my horoscope when I was younger, but not lately. I'll tell ya what, the "Aquarius and What They Hate" blurb you included in your post is about 75% true for me (the first 3 items applied).

    ReplyDelete
  26. Now I wonder how I fit the Sagittarius characteristics! Though, that's a lot of characteristics above to fit into for any sign! Oh yea, the LL challenge! I signed up but I doubt I'll finish by Sept 21. It was a great motivator for me though!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ha I took the quiz and it gave me the same results. I never really thought about it. I think horoscopes are basically Myers Briggs turned spiritual. I am not the life of the party and am more emotional than I care to admit.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am definitely true to my sign, but and I believe astrology can show us certain things about certain people... but I also think what's interesting is how it can sometimes suggest traits we don't always see in ourselves. Like, a few of these things you said no to, I think you are! Only good things and only in a good way, of course. Just interesting to consider :)
    Sigh, I'm the worst at remembering linkups. I already have a post scheduled for tomorrow but maybe I'll remember to get my ish together and throw up a LL post on Monday? Maybe? Life is hard.

  29. My favorite part of this is the "I'm so many types of bitches..." I never used to read horoscopes, or would rarely just because, but I find myself reading them a whole lot more lately. I even had my tarot done in June...which I'm aware isn't astrology but it's along those lines.

  30. I love myself some silly quizzes. Totally taking them. I have a customer who tells me that my sign totally fits me. Then again, they can all be worked to fit anyone. I'm convinced of that.

  31. I feel like my horoscope and who I am don't exactly match, like I'm half and half, but does anyones really?

  32. Ooh! Find out which sign you are really. Because I agree with you, you're really not an aquarius. The list of things you hate is totally things everyone should hate. Lol! Hooray for vague descriptions that can relate to anyone!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Haha at that picture about what Aquarius people hate. I am an Aries - I don't think it fits me well - and I hate all of those things.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I used to read my horoscope too, but like you I read a different one on accident and was like "what, this sounds like me too" so I just stopped. I have no idea what a Libra is like though. I'm going to go do some research now :P

  35. I love horoscope things! Mine are usually pretty accurate and it's totally freaky. But then again I haven't tried reading other ones at the same time. I'm sure those are relatable too, haha!

  36. Im not sure Im a horoscope believer or whatever but I read something about virgos the other day and it was so spot on it freaked me out lol

  37. This made me giggle. I want Sag quizzes!!
