IIRC, from various studies I've seen, it appears that a disproportionate number of people are born during the sign of Leo.



According to ABC News :

"In most recent years, August and September are the top months for births in the United States, according to federal statistics.

August had the most total births every year from 1990 to 2002 except for four — 1992, 1993, 1997 and 1998 — when it was edged out by July.

September, a day shorter than July and August, averaged the most births per day over the period from 1990 to 2002."

Dreamer, here's something you'll like from my tiny Astrology book: "Capricorn & Pisces are a devoted love-match. Capricorn is intrigued by Pisces' creative talents and spiritual quests, and Pisces' finds a stable home under the care and protection of the Goat."

I'm a Gemini. My ex is a Pisces. But I don't believe in astrology and voted negative on the psychic poll.

I'm also "greenish blue", "INTJ", and a "golden retriever". The INTJ stuff describes me pretty well I think. Myers-Briggs and the "5 love languages" are the only two ideas that have helped me much in terms of understanding myself and others. As it turns out, my ex's 5 love languages and mine are nearly complete opposites of each other (my favorite is her fifth and vice versa).

Another INTJ Gemini here.

My astrological sign does not seem to cover my stubbornness. When I determine a goal that is important to me, like ER, I pursue it with a single minded fervor that some have likened to that of a pit bull or piranha. That doesn't sound much like a dreamy, drifty, schizo/multi-tasking Gemini.

Oh dear. I used to have a nasty habit of dating Gemini's and it never worked out very well. Disastrous. Only thing worse for me than a Gemini was a redhead.

If I ever met a redhead Gemini, I'd have run screaming.

Well, it used to happen in the 70's , but do they still ask "What's your sign?" in bars?

I should have been a Taurus due to my bull-headedness. There must be a mistake on my birth certificate.

I have never had red hair, though when I was younger I was a brunette with some serious red and gold highlights. Love that color of brown hair, though it does not seem to be very common. My grandmother was a redhead, so I guess that was peeking through.

My ex and Frank are both Leo's.

That sounds so sleazy! No comment since I don't drink but I just thought I had to laugh when you said that.

I believe the only time this line works any more is on an Internet forum.
