THEME THURSDAY: SIGN



I’ve never been much on reading or believing daily horoscopes but I must admit to recognizing more than a few similarities between myself and my astrological sun sign, Sagittarius. In the past, I’ve even had friends musingly christen me the poster child for the 'Archer’s' characteristic traits. With that in mind, how about the rest of you bloggers? To borrow from that ever ‘dated’ line from the 1970’s , “What’s your sign?”…and do you think you fit the characteristic traits?

Traits:
Sagittarians are eternal optimists. They have very positive outlooks on life, are full of enterprise, energy, versatility, creativity, adventurousness and an eagerness to extend most experiences for as long as possible( If they are pleasant, of course). They are dreamers and idealistic, drawn to travel and exploration. Because of this, they often select careers which will afford them that possibility. They are honorable, honest, trustworthy, truthful, generous and sincere with a passion for justice. Sagittarius is not a diplomatic sign like Libra and Scorpio. They are very straightforward, at times telling people more than they may wish to hear. They can be restless and dislike monotony. They are typically very extroverted and this lends well to situations where they will be in the spotlight. Like the other fire signs, they enjoy the outdoors. They are usually modest and are often religious. They are also strong-willed and good at organizing, a combination that gives them the ability to bring most projects to a successful conclusion( most but not all).

Mythology:
The sign in Greek Mythology is associated with the Centaur: half human, half horse. The Babylonians, however, identified Sagittarius as the god Pabilsag, a diety with wings and a lion's head.

I never gave my sign a second thought...didn't even know what the traits were until Willow showed me my Virgo description. It was eerie how perfectly it fit me! :)

From one Saggy to another. We've arrived. As Betsy said above, I too was not into much of the signs until Willow showed me mine. And like Betsy, mine fit me to a T.
I love your blog music, Rebecca; so soft and comforting! Your new header picture is beautiful. Do you think sometimes we were born too late? Have a great weekend and thanks for posting about the Centaur! I plan to post about him myself soon! :) The Bach

I see my apt pupils have arrived before me! :^) I'm Libra, the diplomatic scales, who can never decide. Libras and Sagittarius get along like air and fire!

I agree with you, I find astrology somewhat intriguing. I too find many similarities between me and my water sin of Cancer, ruled by the Moon.;)
My typical traits are romantic, nurturing, creative, artistic, sensitive, moody and introvert (withdrawing into my shell in times of trouble);))

I am a Pisces, which also fits me perfectly. My sign is two fish, swimming in opposite directions. As bach mentioned, he is definetly a Sag : )

Rebecca said...

Bach, I actally remembered that you are my dear Sag brother when writing this post... LOL!!

Thank you for your kindness and... yes, indeed, I do believe we were born too late. A friend once told me that I have an old soul and I think that perhaps she was right.

Willow.. they arrived and you taught them well! ;)

Though not a believer, I've been told that I am a perfect example of Leo, displaying most of the sign's traits. Especially "stubborn."
