Yes, I avoid Scorpios, but also avoid Sagittarius.

Whether true or not, I've dated them and find them to be incompatible. Too self-centered, selfish, too jokey-joke, too adventurous/random, like to test people, are oblivious to social norms, and their d*ck rules them.

I'm not basing this on 1 single person of each zodiac, I've been on more than 65 dates at this point. I do not send messages to these zodiacs, I do not reply to messages from these zodiacs. If you notice, their profiles all look the same, have the same sorta approach to writing, I can even tell they are one of the two zodiacs by just reading the "about me" section.

I'm naturally drawn to Capricorns (my zodiac), because I clearly know my limitations with someone who is very similar to me, I know that they are honest, reliable, willing to explore the depths of various subjects, tend not to have many friends, can cut you out of their lives in a blink of an eye (so no drama will follow), are passionate, give 100% to what they believe is worth their time and efforts, etc.

I'm also drawn to Aquarius, my ex boyfriend is Aquarius, authoritative, brilliant, very manly, generous, adventurous in a fun way, methodical, friendly, aggressive, assertive, seductive, etc.

I'm not saying the zodiac is the bible, but I can't help but notice the common threads time after time.

Well said. And yes, the guy I was involved with (Aquarius) was just like that as well. Sadly he had a "badly" (for lack of better terms) placed moon that made him too aggressive and in the end clashed with me too much. But in general, the list you made fits him to a T.

Ok, but the thing is, you are disregarding the times when there ISN'T a connection, and you can't tell me it doesn't happen.

Oh, and I am an Aquarius. So, come get me.

If something about certain people always put you off, and those traits happen to be from specific zodiacs, even in the workplace, you are noticing that no connection can be had, no matter how they presented themselves from a very beginning. You cannot compromise with such individuals, they are all about themselves, they don't care about you (in your face), everything you say falls on deaf ears, and they considers themselves freaks when in reality they can't even do the basics in a bedroom. They love taking d*ck pics, lmao.

Try this on for size:
"hey it's your birthday, how about you come over and give me a massage?"

No joke, this is what I got on my birthday about 2-3 years ago, from a Scorpio I was involved with many years before that. Not only don't they change, they become way more clear about their ways throughout the years.


Oh, and I am an Aquarius. So, come get me.

Aquarius make you want them, they don't invite people to get them.

Can people have multiple zodiac signs, since there are/have been calendars that other cultures use(d) that don't match up with the American version? What calendar was being used when astrology was invented/discovered?

What the f*ck? Is this another way of saying his butt was on his shoulders??

Belle - my point is, for every story you give me about someone having a certain personality based on their "sign", I can give you dozens where there's a complete contradiction.

Furthermore, have you ever wondered why this shit only seems to apply to personality? Why isn't it that blondes can only be Scorpios, brunettes are Libras, green eyes means Leo, etc.??

If you read my initial post, I made it very clear that it is my experience with such that I am speaking of. I didn't say it held any actual truth in the real world.

There are exceptions to everything, I just haven't met one yet since I won't give them the time of day, dating-wise, work-wise, etc. Life is too short to focus on distasteful people, so I focus on what I like and prefer. After all, I assure you they are not missing out on anything.

I would actually give someone money if they were able to discern someone's sign by reading their profile alone. I'm very interested in testing supernatural claims. What's likely happening is that you're glancing at the part that says "Caucasian SCORPIO" at the top and then reading the "about me" section. I don't believe anyone is able to do this. There have been many tests like this and 100% of astrologers have failed. Basically, they can't generate results better than simply guessing.

Being a certain sign of the zodiac doesn't make you horny and take pictures of yourself. Being male does that.

You confuse me. You're *not* saying it holds any truth in the real world? Is there somewhere else in the universe where it *does* hold truth? If not, then why follow it?

Yes, and you might notice they all happen to be men. So, by your logic, no more men!

Edit Coma are you a James randi or whoever his name is test

Well, I don't have a million dollars if that's what you're asking. I'm just willing to throw down cash on these issues because it's such a safe bet. No one has ever passed a challenge that put astrology, psychic powers, aura reading, or anything like that to the test. It all fails miserably once you set up a fair trial. That's because it's all based on confimation bias and personal belief. None of it actually exists. People start making excuses when you challenge them. It's sort of like claiming you can fly and then telling people you're not in the mood to fly when someone offers you money to prove it. "Trust me bro, I can fly, I just have to concentrate hard and I'm too tired right now."

Here's another version of the horoscope experiment but it's a personality profile.

Some psychics, tarot card readers are tested:

I'd say to test them, but all you have to do is google what they said and it gives you their profile, with their birthday or sign.

It's so easy to prove wrong, though. If these signs affect someone's personality and how they act, how come so many twins are so different from each other? Shouldn't they both share these traits of that sign?

I find this an odd attitude to have towards any group of people. Replace zodiac sign with race/culture/gender and this statement (rightly) falls apart as the simplistic, lazy, and prejudicial attitude that it is.

But wait bellevintage.... If the unicorn exists for you, but does not exist for the scientific community - does the unicorn not exist? And who would argue the non-existence of unicorns to anyone who believes in unicorns? And if unicorns exist in any way shape or form to any single person, what purpose would the non-existence of unicorns serve the individual?

So as far as believing or having faith - sometimes its not the question of the validity, but a question of relativity in terms of quality of life.

Or am I just asking you questions at 2 am?

Over the past fifty years, scientists and astrological researchers are discovering a growing body of objective evidence of correlations between celestial positions and terrestrial life. These statistically significant results have been published in peer reviewed journals (including Correlation, a specialist astrological journal). Ironically, some of the strongest evidence has come from experiments backed by sceptical groups including CSICOP.
Vernon Clark's Blind Tests (1951-1970)


There's numerous statistics about correlation and accuracy in that post. Let's say that astrology is accurate 70% of the time. How does that help me when I'm dealing with the other 30%? And how do I know when I'm dealing with the 70% or the 30%? Do I then only treat people depending on their assigned category 70% of the time? How do I treat them the rest of the time?

And when did treating people like humans and individuals go out the window? Is my personality and character simply a semi defined statistical correlation now?

You are certainly entitled to your opinion, I'm also entitled to not care about it.

CTRL,

That's fairly easy to answer. I work at a rehab, and during the years I've been there and in my practice with individuals who have had a break in reality, it doesn't matter if you agree with their hallucinations, their feelings, or ideas. If they tell you they have super powers, who are you to question it? I just dealt with this yesterday and couldn't get out of work till 2am because I sat in my office for hours thinking "how the f*ck do I write about this without getting anyone in trouble? As an administrator who had to do a crisis intervention, how do I cover all basis while remaining within the scope of possibly being called into court if sh*t hits the fan?". I have "duty to warn" if I believe a patient's conviction is such that someone may be in actual harm, but I cannot act upon it until I assess it goes beyond "blowing off steam"........but I digress, I haven't had sufficient sleep yet and I might be called in at any minute to further explain my intervention..

The point is that everyone's reality differs due to their particular set experiences in life, how they process/cope with the good and the bad, their critical thinking skills or lack thereof, to the degree that one is forced to learn to discriminate/make choices. So I agree that the "validity" is not what's really the question, but if referring to quality of life, another subjective item, then it greatly depends on ones assessment of what quality of life is and that which is thought to enhance it.

I'm functioning at 4 hours of sleep at this point, so pardon me if none of what say makes sense, I think I'm trying to point to the conclusion that whatever we believe allows us to function in greater society, remain sane to some extent (or such that poses no harm to others), then that which allows for us to "keep it together" is unique to each individual.

The thought of a unicorn, allows for me to function in society and enhances my quality of life. And by unicorn, I'm not referring to the mystical creature, but to an ideal.

Yeah context and individuality - that's a goodun'

I can't imagine a sleep deprived belle over a smiley belle

One of those situations where you find yourself damned - if it were me, in that case, I would simply gather up the relevant information regarding mental health, in context to the statement - and that way if you get called you can always throw the psychiatrist under the bus.....

What do you mean by old school wrestling on your profile? You mean wrestling as a sport?

It's all been taken care of, so no worries.

Old school wrestling for me is 80s and 90s, when WWF, WCW, and other entities existed, when the drama was entertaining but not malicious, before they got people's wives involved, before a wrestler was pushed on top of his pregnant wife, resulting in a miscarriage. I stopped watching wrestling on that day.

So the era of Shawn Michaels and Bret Heart, is old school wrestling but so are the days on Andre the Giant, Roddy Piper, macho man, sting, rick flair, the Undertaker (when you were not able to see his face), the British bulldog, Steve Austin, when triple HHH was spelled out and he was skinny, etc.

Oh ok yeah, that's awesome, and yeah they were kind of running out of material since the 80's. I've never been a huge fan of the performance arts myself, too scripted - I prefer my performances be improvised.

I also prefer the old style of wrestling. They actually had characters instead of trying to be like the UFC. Jake the Snake actually had a snake that bit people. The Undertaker looked like a mortician and put people in body bags. The Big Boss Man had handcuffs and a nightstick. I find the characters really boring now. It's less "fun" than it used to be. I was also younger when I watched it, but it seemed a lot more fun, almost like the glam rock bands of the 80's.

*looks at Belle's profile*

Seriously?!!! Girl! *high fives*
If you know who Gene Kiniski is, that is how far back I go. I think everything changed for me when Roddy Piper's ear was bitten off. I remember my (adoptive) mom and I staring at the old style wooden box tv on the floor, seeing Roddy grabbing his bitten ear, blood everywhere.
My (biological) mother dated one called The Brute aka Bugsy McGraw. As a three year old, I was sitting on his lap, brushing his beard lol.
Ahhh the days.


You surprise me Belle :)

I used to love wrestling.
I saw Haystack Calhoun and the Masked Bolo
and the Mountain Man several times.

Those guys really weren't into being in shape,
but they were awesomely fun to watch.
