The Age of Aquarius

I have realized that I totally fit my sign. I am an aquarius in every way possible. It's even evident when I try to figure out what to write on my blog. Once I think of a topic, I am tumbled into a serious of thoughts and pictures, and then I emerge from this journey 5 minutes later and haven't written a word. Aquarians often have their head in the clouds, and flit from topic to topic like birds lighting upon trees. I swim in my imagination and relish my independence. When I do things alone other people say, "Don't you get bored? You should have called me if you were alone all day!" I love being alone, to sit in my own thoughts and explore them with the tendrils of my mind that weave tapestries of nothing. Really.
Here are some traditional Aquarian traits I found on the Internet.
Good Traits:

Friendly and humanitarian
Honest and loyal
Original and inventive
Independent and intellectual
Bad Traits:
Intractable and contrary
Perverse and unpredictable
Unemotional and detached
So, I do like the good traits better, but I've noticed some of the other traits in my life, especially being contrary and unemotional. When I was young my parents would tell me to clean my room, and I'd response by messing it up even more. Once my stepdad told me to study for the SAT's and I tore up every single study guide until there was a mound of white paper on the floor. Some people think I have such a level personality that I don't display any emotion. But I've learned to tune in to my emotion, to recognize every emotion as "ok".
Aquarians are also humanitarian, and I love looking for ways to help the greater good, or animals.
Do you fit your sign? If so, how? Do you even believe in astrology?

You know Kristin, the older I get-- the less I know.

I used to always think astrology was CRAP! But, now, well, I don't know. My ignorance is proven to me on a daily basis. The world does a good job of helping me see how misguided I can be.

So I have a saying I borrow from somewhere (I'm not sure where)--- "Many ways up the mountain." I think we all have to find the ways that work for us. It would be a very boring world if everyone thought the same thoughts as little old me. Dumber every day. Really.

And I think that's the wisdom in getting older.

Diplomaitic and urbane
Romantic and charming
Easygoing and sociable
Idealistic and peaceable

bad traits:
Indecisive and changeable
Gullible and easily infuenced
Flirtatious and self-indulgent

diplomatic, indecisive, idealistic, gullible, charming, and self-indulgent just about sum me up.

Since you asked...I don't believe in astrology. Sorry to be old fashioned on that one! See you tomorrow!

I follow my sign almost to a T:

Good traits:
Emotional and loving
Intuitive and imaginative
Shrewd and cautious
Protective and sympathetic

Bad traits:
Changeable and moody
Overemotional and touchy
Clinging and unable to let go

Home and Country

Aggravating situations
Being told what to do
Advice (good or bad)

I agree with 90%. I actually seek advice and am sometimes unable to make a decision without the advise of others.

Here is Isaiah-

Adaptable and versatile
Communicative and witty
Intellectual and eloquent
Youthful and lively

Nervous and tense
Superficial and inconsistent
Cunning and inquisitive

I find it interesting that "inquisitive" is a bad trait. Are they from the 1920s?
