    No. Quite honestly, I believe they are written in a way to fit everyone's circumstances in one way or another. And the descriptions of each sign? Pretty generic. I'm a "Leo", by the way.

    And the Witnesses would tell anyone who went to astrology after leaving that they were doing worse than returning to vomit.

    That's not what I'm saying, of course. Just my observation that astrology doesn't cut it for ME.

    Don't spend your money frivolously or gamble it away. It's time you started to save for your retirement or for an unexpected expense.

    LOL Having just spent a third of my paycheck this afternoon I guess it applies. I still don't believe in it though...

    Cancer (June 22 - July 23)

    Feb 15, 2003: What was previously thought to be the main planet guiding your destiny has actually turned out to be nothing more than an enormous chunk of Skylab still floating around the atmosphere. Any advice you have received through this column in recent years should therefore be disregarded. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    LMAO @ Ed

    Robyn - I dont know if I believe in the whole astrology thing. The only readings I have ever read up on were the ones in the newspaper. Very generic, I read the other signs and they apply to me just the same.

    You asked the question but you never answered yourself??? How about you, do you put any stock into horoscopes?

    A couple of very good reads about things like this are:

    Martin Gardner, Fads and Fallacies in the Name of Science, Dover books, many reprints; many other books.

    James Randi, many books, many online resources (search on "james randi skeptic").


    Thank you for the suggested reading material. Randi is an interesting fellow.

    LOL Ed! Good one.

    I haven't really formed an opinion about Astrology


    You feel the way that I feel about it.

    And the Witnesses would tell anyone who went to astrology after leaving that they were doing worse than returning to vomit.


    The Witnesses are very fond of that saying, aren't they? YUK!!!

    LOL Having just spent a third of my paycheck this afternoon I guess it applies. I still don't believe in it though


    Yikes! Sorry to hear that. I hope all is well with you.

    How about you, do you put any stock into horoscopes?


    Nope, not in the forecasts. Although sometimes, like today, it seems to hit me. I do find the personal natal charts interesting though. I had mine done by an impersonal computer and it is pretty darn accurate. Right down to suggesting that I would find radio an interesting career choice. I did radio for 20 years.

    Thanks for posting, everybody.

    Love yas,

    Yes I have--quite a few. I have a couple of excellent books, as well as some sites that I enjoy. I think that there are a lot of "generic" horoscopes out there; however, I don't judge my views of them on that. There is a huge variety and amount of astrology information out there that I have found extremely accurate--sometimes to such a point that I want to laugh and/or cry.

    I personally feel that my knowledge of astrology has helped me tremendously to understand other people better. I am a pisces, so that's probably a huge part in of itself, but I think that the more we can understand about each other the less we try to judge them or hold them to our own standards. Just my 2 cents and experience.

    BTW, what do you think about astrology and horoscopes? Have you ever had a really good reading, or read an in-depth book about it? I hope you have and that you enjoyed it.

    some very accurate stuff in the astro world about me.

    wanna see?


    October 23 - November 21

    Scorpio is the eighth Sign of the Zodiac, and you shouldn't take that lightly. You shouldn'ttake Scorpios lightly, either. Those born under this Sign are dead serious in their mission to learn about others. There's no fluff or chatter for Scorpios, either: these folks will zero in on the essential questions, gleaning the secrets that lie within. Scorpios concern themselves with beginnings and endings, and are unafraid of either; they also travel in a world which is black and white and has little use for gray. The curiosity of Scorpios is immeasurable, which may be why they are such adept investigators. These folks love to probe and know how to get to the bottom of things. The fact that they have a keen sense of intuition certainly helps.

    It's the Scorpion which symbolizes Scorpios, and it's no accident. Much like the Scorpion would rather kill itself than be killed, those born under this Sign are the ones who are in ultimate control of their destiny. It is life on the Scorpion's terms, too, since these folks promote their agenda (they are quite the executives) and see to it that things go forward. Others may find this overbearing (it can be) and even self-destructive, but that's the beauty of the Scorpion: these folks have tremendous regenerative powers, much like the literal Scorpion can lose its tail and promptly grow a new one. Fearless Scorpions rarely lose, per se, they just keep on going, since they are stubborn and determined to succeed (this Scorpio trait is in keeping with the Fixed Quality assigned to this Sign). Scorpios work as hard as they do so they can someday sit back and feel satisfied with themselves. These folks are intense, passionate and filled with desire. They're also complex and secretive, so don't expect to get much out of them, lest they become suspicious and exit stage left. It's best not to bet against Scorpios, either, since these folks are surprisingly resourceful.

    Scorpio is ruled by the Planets Mars and Pluto. Mars was the God of War in ancient Roman mythology and is the first (and most ancient) ruler of Scorpio. When Pluto was discovered in the 20th century, it was also assigned to this Sign. Pluto was known as the God of the Underworld in ancient Roman times, so when coupled with Mars, expect some intense energy to head toward Scorpions here on Earth. This planetary combo makes for people who are motivated, penetrating and aware. Scorpions don't miss much, since they are highly attuned to the vibrations of others. They are intuitive, probing and very focused on knowing who's who and what's what. Scorpions can lose their temper (and even become vengeful) when someone gets in their way, so it's best to give them plenty of room. Remember, they're unafraid, and a loss today simply means an opportunity for victory tomorrow. The Element associated with Scorpio is Water. As opposed to the 'roiling seas' seen in other Water Signs, a better motto for Scorpions would be 'still waters run deep.' Those born under this Sign are as emotional as their waterborne brethren, it's just that they're not as likely to show it. The Scorpio's emotions are repressed, kept under cover. Again, secrets to be used another day. That said, be aware that these folks are clever, perceptive and always in the mix. Their ability to see into things can sometimes be a curse for Scorpions, however, since they can take an insignificant matter and turn it into a huge slight. Beware the Scorpion who feels crossed! These folks can turn vindictive in no time flat. Luckily, once Scorpions catch their breath, they will return to their usual determined and loyal (albeit strong-willed) ways. Finally, while Scorpions aren't above some subtle manipulation to get what they want, they'd much rather take a scientific, even mystical path. The Scorpio-born are powerful and passionate, qualities which serve them well, as long as they don't let them deteriorate into self-indulgence or compulsion.

    Scorpios love competition in both work and play, which is why they'll air it out in sports and games. Extreme sports are right up the Scorpion's alley, as is most anything which will test their mettle. They've got to have an adversary, since it makes the game that much more fun. The Scorpion's colors? Powerful red and serious black. When it comes to love, though, Scorpions soften up a bit and are caring and devoted with their lovers, even if they do hold on a bit tight. Scorpions are also lusty in the extreme (how else?), so they need to be mindful of their reproductive organs.The great strength of the Scorpio-born is in their determination, passion and motivation. Scorpions don't know the word quit, which is why they usually get the job done. A powerhouse? Like no other. Those with Venus in Scorpio are the ones most likely to take a mystical, magical ride in the name of love. The fact that these folks are already mysterious serves to enhance the journey. Intense and powerful, those with this placement make for the most passionate and exciting of lovers. A bit naughty? You bet! That Scorpion in the House of Love can inflict a bite which will linger longer, and a darned sexy one at that. These are individuals who want it all: a connection on an intellectual, spiritual and physical level is the bare minimum.Added to that must be zest, fire and an intensity of epic proportions! With Venus in Scorpio, finding mates is not a problem. What will ensue, however, will be most interesting! Even so, these folks want their relationships to be keepers, valuing as they do a solid connection with a loyal partner. Anything short of this could break this lover's heart in two. That said, those with their Venus in Scorpio will be most blissful with someone who can match their passion and zest step for step. This game of love will be hot, but it's the end game which matters most.


    its been said, i'm the sex god of the zodiac.

    i'll let you figure out for yourself who said it and why.

    Noooooooooo but I have had a fortune cookie hit pretty close to home before

    Kidding aside, I have a book called, hhhmm can't find it now...(apparently my friend who was over the other day "borrrowed it" without asking ) I think it is called "Sex Signs"....it was kinda spooky how it discribed some things about me that *lol* I though only pertained to ME (yes I know I am shallow and self-centered, deal with it)...I would love to have my palm read or fortune told...

    Xena of the Pisces Make the BEST Lovers (hey the book SAID so) class

  • beckyboop


    Hmmm, who knew all you scorpio's would be so similar? And what is it about the pisces/scorpio relationship?..... Anyway, I hope you and Somebody are doing great and hope to see you guys again soon.


    Do you have the Sex Signs book by Judith Bennett? I absolutely LOVE my book--I even gave it out at X-mas this year. Whenever women stop by and the book is out they are immediately drawn to it and are amazed at it's accuracy. (or in the case of one friend, she refused to believe the description, even though it described her to a T)

    BTW, I'm a pisces too and we are pretty sexual....

    I love this topic!



  • Robdar

    BTW, what do you think about astrology and horoscopes? Have you ever had a really good reading, or read an in-depth book about it? I hope you have and that you enjoyed it.


    I am not interested much in horoscopes but astrology I find interesting. I have never read a book on it although I have glanced through Linda Goodman's Sun Signs. I have several friends that practice.

    As a gift, I received a lovely natal chart from a friend in England. (Thanks Sandra and Arlene) She included things that I have never heard of before like the influence of Charon and nodes. I had to go on line to try to find more info. All in all, this woman was way accurate. Right down to addressing some of the things that were on my mind and she had no way of knowing about. She is easily the best astrologer I have ever dealt with. I enjoyed the experience very much.

    Thank you for posting.


    That was some cool info that you posted. So, you are a scorpio, eh? Hehehe,Scorpios are the sex god of the zodiac. I know this from experience. Cancers aint bad either or Sags, now that I think about it.

    Thanks for posting, Zev.



  • Xena

    That's the book Betty, I LOVE it....

    speaking of pisces.......

    Of al l of the signs, Pisces has the most active sexual fantasy life. Rather surprising for a sign known for its romanticism, but in a good relationship a Piscean makes love with no holds barred. Making love in or near water is a huge turn on for them, and as such the bathroom is a particularly erotic place. Fountains, waterfalls, rivers, lakes and the sea also do the trick, with the added bonus of being pretty scenery for the Piscean imagination to play with. Pisces woman is comfortable with sex in any form, and will encourage a partner to really let go. She loves to teach and instruct, and can be most definitely un-ladylike when the mood takes here. Pisces man is attentive and encouraging in bed, and is particularly keen on sexily tasteful (as opposed to tacky) underwear on his partner. He's also fond of sex toys, and would probably buy one for his partner as the ideal Valentines present! Despite being really rather a raunchy sign, both sexes are incapable of sex without love, and both place a lot of emphasis on affection and tactile contact in day to day life as well as during sex.

    to a *T* lol YEA BAYBEEEEE
