Rejected because pisces is the dumbest star sign
Apparently, that’s Norah’s star sign I learned about yesterday (I don’t care about horoscopes though)
Virgo over here
Omg virgo club yay
Missed being a pisces (and on Amy's hate list) by a day 😂
Oh you definitely are an Aries 😂
Wut? I'm an aquarian not an Aries. I thought the having my head up my own a$$ was a dead giveaway😂
Do y’all believe in horoscopes? :face_with_monocle:
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 😂😂
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?
I really strongly dislike Gladwell for his (imho) hit pieces and oversimplification of stats...so no :rolling_on_the_floor_laughing:
lol yeah Amy I believe in whatever my mom says 😂
I just love to read about pretty much everything - this is one of those
well, i'm usually affected by different stars and galaxies
There is science behind the power of the moon
but what about sun flairs?
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
I'm an Aries, Amy, for what it's worth 😄
and omg yes Limarc and Amy you are SUCH Virgos ✨:rolling_on_the_floor_laughing: (or just canadian..?) Loren knows the facts: https://www.lorensworld.com/business/life-work/virgos-great-workplace/
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.
the rest is true though 😅, at least I hope so
I was painfully shy until college too. Well, either painfully shy or wildly unpopular. I'm not sure
I feel ya. That's the same excuse I use when people ask why I didn't have any long-term relationships in highschool 😣
I mostly worked on stuff during my breaks (also goes back to the all work no play virgoness)
but like was that by choice...or because we had no other options...
I'm not sure 😂 this is a very chicken vs egg scenario
You know what? We turned out fine
NO MATTER WHAT THE HOROSCOPES SAY
Natasha I think David, who’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. 😂 I get what you say about general pointer through
I’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:
Limarc I think those describe you very well especially the practical one spot on
I still stand by everything I said in this thread 😂
