I found this on the internet the other day and think it's interesting. It explains your personality based on the day of the month you were born. For example, I was born on the 19th of the month. According to this horoscope:
19th: You are so self-sufficient that you may be miserable if you lack the independence you crave. If you're able to strike out on your own, you can thrive in a variety of fields.
Now, I discussed this with my friends, saying I didn't think of myself as independent. Two of them argued back, telling me that I'm one of the most independent people they know. One pointed out that I'd gone on a 3,500 mile car trip all by myself back in 2006 (except for one leg of the journey, about 500 miles, when I did have a shotgun rider). So, I thought about it some more and I guess I am self-suffecient. I'll go about getting things fixed on my own, without always discussing it with my husband. Luckily, as the 3,500 mile car trip (to an RWA Conference and visit with friends) points out, my husband nurtures this need for independence. He may grumble when I ask to do things, but in the end, he ususally lets me do what I want. This has included the car trip, flying twice to the East coast (once for a wedding and once for another RWA conference), a 1800 mile, one way, car trip with my then teenage daughters, and a 10 day trip to Europe with my older daughter and a group from her school.
I am now making plans to attend the Nashville RWA Conference, which I plan to drive to, hopefully with a friend, so I won't be alone on this 1,000 one-way trip.
Only one friend has talked to me about what his day said about him, and like me, he disagreed with it. But I had to disagree with his disagreement. It says he loves change and excitment and will try new things and travel in order to acheive this. I totally agree. He's one of the busiest, most invovled people I know (sports, scouts, school) and, according to him, has visited every state in the lower 48 states, except one.
One thing I did find interesting - all three of grandchild's 'horoscopes' say that they will travel. The brother and sister will both want to be globetrotters. The other shares the same birthday as my friend above, which hints at the need to travel in order to achieve changes and excitment. Hmmm, maybe they'll open a travel agency together.
Anyway, check this 'horoscope' out. Do you agree with what it says about you or not?
