The truth of the matter is it’s a rhetorical question because who wouldn’t say that they’re their own favorite sign? But let’s think outside the self-centered box for a second.
From my experience women tend to be into zodiac signs and astrology way more than men. Sure a (lame) guy will ask a woman what her sign is upon meeting her, but that’s usually some sort of (lame) come on or conversation starter. Women on the other hand, analyze your entire being based on your response to the same question and will have all these random “facts” based on what day, month and year you were born. I have no clue as to why or how women keep all this zodiacal information in their brains but they’ll know every little nuance of all 12 (or is it 13 now?) signs.
Me, not so much. When it comes to the zodiac I barely know anything about my own sign (Capricorn in the house) let alone anyone else’s. What I tend to go by is the personality of someone else I know who shares the same sign. “Oh, you’re a Leo? My old boss was a Leo and she was…” There’s no guarantee that either of you will be the same, but if zodiacs are to hold any weight then my past dealing with someone with a similar sign is all I have to go by.
In regards to my favorite zodiac sign (besides my own), I don’t have one. However, I know that I have a lot of Scorpios and Tauruses in my life. May and November are the months where it seems like every other day I know someone who has a birthday—from family and exes to friends and associates. Is that somehow part of the traits of my zodiac sign to be compatible with people born in those months?
I have no clue.
At the end of the day, I believe everyone is an individual and zodiac signs are more about coincidental similarities than stone-cold facts about who we are or meant to be. From what I hear, Capricorns are supposed to be reliable hard workers (I know I am) but I used to work with this guy that was the most unorganized person I knew. So when I found out he was a Capricorn I was shocked.
I brought it up to a homegirl of mine and she was like, “When was he born?”
“Some time in January,” I responded.
“Oh, that explains it, he’s a January Cap, they’re different from December Caps.”
Do you find that more women are into astrology and zodiac signs than men? Have you found their to be similarities among people of the same sign? Which is the sexiest zodiac sign to you? Which signs are you the most compatible with? Which are you least compatible with? Do you find yourself drawn to certain signs? Do you believe that astrology is more about coincidences than actual celestial influence? What’s your favorite zodiac sign beside your own?
