Apparently, thatโ€™s Norahโ€™s star sign I learned about yesterday (I donโ€™t care about horoscopes though)

LimarcApr 4, 2021, 4:37 PM

Virgo over here

AmyApr 4, 2021, 4:38 PM

Omg virgo club yay

Utsav JaiswalApr 4, 2021, 4:41 PM

Missed being a pisces (and on Amy's hate list) by a day ๐Ÿ˜‚

LimarcApr 4, 2021, 4:41 PM

Lololol

AmyApr 4, 2021, 4:45 PM

Oh you definitely are an Aries ๐Ÿ˜‚

Utsav JaiswalApr 4, 2021, 4:50 PM

Wut? I'm an aquarian not an Aries. I thought the having my head up my own a$$ was a dead giveaway๐Ÿ˜‚

AmyApr 4, 2021, 4:50 PM

Omggg

LinhApr 4, 2021, 4:52 PM

Do yโ€™all believe in horoscopes? :face_with_monocle:

AmyApr 4, 2021, 4:55 PM

Not in a be all end all kind of way. But I believe in it the same way I believe things will work out as they should. So then when shit hits the fan I can be like oh it's okay mercury is in retrograde but I'll be fine in 12 days ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

LimarcApr 4, 2021, 4:55 PM

No not at all. I do believe that being born in a certain month could affect your personality and life. Did you read outliers by Gladwell?

LinhApr 4, 2021, 5:01 PM

I really strongly dislike Gladwell for his (imho) hit pieces and oversimplification of stats...so no :rolling_on_the_floor_laughing:

LinhApr 4, 2021, 5:02 PM

lol yeah Amy I believe in whatever my mom says ๐Ÿ˜‚

Utsav JaiswalApr 4, 2021, 5:08 PM

I just love to read about pretty much everything - this is one of those

ArthurApr 4, 2021, 5:18 PM

well, i'm usually affected by different stars and galaxies

AmyApr 4, 2021, 7:05 PM

There is science behind the power of the moon

ArthurApr 4, 2021, 7:14 PM

but what about sun flairs?

NatashaApr 4, 2021, 10:18 PM

I feel like I notice similarities between people who were born around the same time (leos are consistently obsessed with their own hair; scorpios take grudges very seriously, and taureans are stubborn AF, for example), but that might just be confirmation bias because I was raised by a raging hippie

NatashaApr 4, 2021, 10:18 PM

I'm an Aries, Amy, for what it's worth ๐Ÿ˜„

NatashaApr 4, 2021, 10:24 PM

and omg yes Limarc and Amy you are SUCH Virgos โœจ:rolling_on_the_floor_laughing: (or just canadian..?) Loren knows the facts: https://www.lorensworld.com/business/life-work/virgos-great-workplace/

LimarcApr 4, 2021, 10:45 PM

hmm I don't know Natasha:

"Strengths: Loyal, analytical, kind, hardworking, practical
Weaknesses: Shyness, worry, overly critical of self and others, all work and no play"

Amy is definitely not shy. I used to be shy until college and then I forced myself to grow out of it.

LimarcApr 4, 2021, 10:46 PM

the rest is true though ๐Ÿ˜…, at least I hope so

AmyApr 4, 2021, 11:03 PM

I was painfully shy until college too. Well, either painfully shy or wildly unpopular. I'm not sure

LimarcApr 4, 2021, 11:04 PM

I feel ya. That's the same excuse I use when people ask why I didn't have any long-term relationships in highschool ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

AmyApr 4, 2021, 11:05 PM

I mostly worked on stuff during my breaks (also goes back to the all work no play virgoness)

LimarcApr 4, 2021, 11:06 PM

but like was that by choice...or because we had no other options...

AmyApr 4, 2021, 11:07 PM

I'm not sure ๐Ÿ˜‚ this is a very chicken vs egg scenario

LimarcApr 4, 2021, 11:07 PM

You know what? We turned out fine

LimarcApr 4, 2021, 11:07 PM

NO MATTER WHAT THE HOROSCOPES SAY

AmyApr 4, 2021, 11:08 PM

(Worry)

LinhApr 4, 2021, 11:42 PM

Lol

LinhApr 4, 2021, 11:44 PM

Natasha I think David, whoโ€™s a Taurus( I just learned) is truly stubborn af but at the same time I think he cares about his hair more than me, a Leo. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I get what you say about general pointer through

๐Ÿ˜‚ 1
LinhApr 4, 2021, 11:46 PM

Iโ€™d say I identify with other Leo traits such as the need to be excellent and let other people know about it :rolling_on_the_floor_laughing:

LinhApr 4, 2021, 11:54 PM

Limarc I think those describe you very well especially the practical one spot on

AmyJul 10, 2021, 3:51 AM

I still stand by everything I said in this thread ๐Ÿ˜‚
