Dear Poll: Does Your Personality Match Your Astrological Sign?

Over dinner the other night with friends, the astrology came up. My best friend was saying how happy she was that her baby was an Aquarius rather than a Pisces — he made it by two days! Of course, that sparked the debate as to whether or not our personalities match our astrological sign, and the consensus was that they do! So does your personality match the characteristics that fall under your astrological sign?

I think if one does a random check of the posts done here, it is amazing how many of them are Gemini or Virgo. This is proof enough of astrology being a science.Navinhttp://astrosutra.blogspot.com [simplifying astrology]

I'll definitely agree that most descriptions I've read are really general so anyone can take something about themselves out of it. It's like when you read your horoscope the day after and you can see that something that happened fit with what the horoscope said. You always can to an extent no matter what since it's so broad and general.

Some days I do and others I don't. I guess that makes me even more of a Gemini because one twin is one way and the other is different. I definitely have two sides of my personality, the hyper girl and the deep thinker really can't coexist.

i think that the characteristics are always soo general that of course people think that they suit their personalities. i used to buy into that - and i don't really care so much about it to be honest. i don't discount that it has value and could be right in many cases since there are people who take it VERY seriously - but for myself - i don't really pay attention to whether i'm like my sign or not.

Load of nonsense. I'm a scientist, not an aquarius.

I'll be damned. My rising sign is Aries, haha. I act like a CLASSIC Aries, to the point where it is almost sickening. However, the more I look at it, the more I realize I have traits of Pisces and Aquarius as well. Pisces: I am secretive to a degree, sensitive to a degree, intuitive, selfless (when it comes to certain people) But I am hardly a dreamer, or oversensitive. I'm loyal and extremely faithful in relationships, with a sex drive that isn't exactly raging all the time. Aquarius: Friendly and humanitarian, honest and loyal, independent, DEFINITELY unemotional a lot of the time, and pretty detached. I'm also very serious minded and frank. Aries: "aggressive and restless, argumentative occasionally, headstrong, quick tempered, easily offended and capable of holding grudges if they feel themselves affronted." "self-reliant but also self centered (sometimes)" "frank, direct and candid", "easily be irritated by slowness", "Your nature is usually push or be pushed, with little middle ground.", "what is essential to your nature: straightforwardness.", "quick-witted but sometimes foolhardy and over optimistic" -- yeah, me to a t! I am wayyyyy more Aries than anything else. Oddly enough a lot of my Arian characteristics present itself in an almost negative way. I never thought that being frank, disliking slowness, being sarcastic and a little bit bitchy could make some people react the way they do! I am ALL like my dad, haha.

I'm a Capricorn, and while some of those traits match, some don't. Then I found out I have an Aquarius rising, which explains a lot. So I fall between those two.

I am absolutely nothing like my sign. I'm a Saggitarius, and I'm supposed to be outgoing, love to travel, overly expressive and all that. I'm not. At all. I'm very laid back. If I could, I would love to settle down in one place for the rest of my life, raise kids, and still be in that same house 40 years later, telling my grandkids stories about the good ol' days. I'm usually the pillar people in my family lean on when things get tough and willing to give up personal freedoms temporarily depending upon the situation. I'm not the kind of person who would say "You're crushing my spirit! I need to make only independent decisions!" There are so many times I've done things for other people that tore me up inside and done something I hate with a furious passion because otherwise that person would be devastated. I have no illusions about self-importance. So, yeah. Nothing like my sign.

Yes, I am a Virgo, Virgo moon, Cancer rising. And I act that way; that's why I'm so cool, and cranky at times.

I'm a Sagittarius, with moon in Aquarius and Leo rising, and I see a bit of each of those in myself. About prematurity - my sister was born really premature. She was supposed to be born under Virgo but was born under Taurus instead. And there is nothing Virgo about that chica! She is Taurus through and through - quite possibly the most stubborn person I know. And the doctors and nurses at the NICU always said that it was that stubborn quality that got her through some tough stuff.

With my sun and rising in Leo, that's me all the way. Once when someone asked me if I had thoughts of suicide, I told her that I was way to awesome to rob the world of me. :P

Astrological signs are fun, I guess .... but they are SO general that they often describe everyone. Prefer loyal friends? Driven to succeed? Why, that's me!

I'm a Virgo with a Libra Moon, which makes me over-analytical and constantly searching for facts on every side of the story and looking for balance. It's always hard for me to decide what to do on the weekend, let alone choosing sides on anything!

You know what, it's surprising how many of us say they are true to their sign. I think astrology in its commercialized version today is very clever at giving a description that seems to suit you. 'You are creative, but can be traditional at times. You are headstrong, but thankfully, you know when to yield. You like luxuries, but you have your head in the right place.' I mean this description could suit almost anybody! :D Plus, it sounds flattering enough for you to say: 'hell yeah, I'm like that!' Having said that, I still revel in the thought of being a true Leo. Yup, they've succeeded in convincing me :P
