I'm a Scorpio, not that it has ever meant much to me...but the above is usually a pretty good description.

Nah, the goat is the Capricorn--I'm just frightfully honest! I have this funny little Astrology book by Julia Bondi that I got somewhere that has a hilarious description of Capricorns: Capricorns will naturally assume responsibility and authority. They enjoy giving advice, managing people, and solving problems.

I had a friend tell me I could print that on a card with my picture.

And here's the Scorpio description:
They are intense, perceptive, determined, passionate, jealous, and revengeful. It is important for Scorpios to work with and to choose as friends those as trustworthy as they are...you will never totally know Scorpios because part of their nature is reserved for them alone and cannot be shared with anyone.

ah i see! good to have a sense of humor.

scorpios are the most misunderstood sign ! we're warm and fuzzy, just because we hold lifelong grudges (if we haven't resolved our issues in therapy or somewhere)...doesn't mean we aren't fun to be around...

Burma Shave

As a child, I loved those Burma Shave signs. I thought I would never forget the one on the way to granma's but the ole brain power fades; it may have been, like your example, a caution against speeding.

Question for OP and all--does your screen persona have a different sign from your actual birth sign? "Fluffy" is a Leo whereas I'm a Virgo.

Given the number of people that know their sign and know what it means, I'm surprised the numbers on the psychics thread in the affirmative are so low.

"Fluffy" was adopted too but she came with papers that gave her birthday as 8-11-04. Isn't there a custom of giving adopted babies a birthdate in August?

I'm a Gemini, of two minds about most everything and a real trial to everyone except other Geminis who understand each other perfectly.

I know exactly what you mean. My DW is a Gemini. I usually have to repeat myself since one of them can't understand or did not hear me ....

Hmm, lots of Leo's and its been previously observed that the ER community is loaded with INTJ's far out of proportion to their occurrence in the normal world.
