Say what?!

So apparently I'm not a Capricorn anymore. This has thrown me slightly I gotta say.

When I was a deluded teen I used to hunt for the goat (my starsign 'mascot' if you will) in the 'astrology' page of Bliss magazine and devoured every word, especially the 'love life' section which satisfied me every time with its mention of 'surprise dates', 'secret admirers' and 'a spontaneous gift of a field of sunflowers in rural Sardinia in which yourself and hunk of the month will frolic in' (okay ,the latter isn't strictly true but I had a good imagination at the time)

So now I'm part of that cool gang of Aquarius'.  Which sounds kinda like some achingly cool mermaid gang out at sea eating their organic seaweed and floating from place to place with a big glossy mane of hair which always seems to follow gracefully behind them so they never end up swallowing a mouthful when they make an abrupt turn with their perfectly sized fins.  Sigh.

I'll ignore the fact that I think astrology is a load of rubbish and run with this little fantasy but if you are pondering your next tattoo, here is a useful guide:

Apparently we're safe! I think it's only supposed to effect ppl born in the last few years. Don't know the specific details, but am assured that I am still a wonderfully stubborn Aries!
Lol I remember doing the same with Mizz and Teen Cosmo....and you'd claim you didn't believe, but you still read every word of it and got excited if it promised anything boy-related! Also, one mag used to do "If he's a guy..." section at the end of each sign, so if you knew the sign of the boy you liked (which we all normally did, being feckin' stalkers) you'd see if he was promised love that month...
*sigh*

Ah yes, if you're born after 2009 apparently. According to my FB newsfeed the the entire population was having an identity crisis!

ah the guy star signs, it pains me to admit but all that you wrote is sadly true! Thankfully we turned out alright - the astrologgy sections of Glamour magazine barely get a glance except if they have pretty illustrations next to the starsigns!

I read that it doesn't affect our Zodiac as it is part of an astrological 'system' that we don't use. The common one that we are all used to is based on the Byzantines who fixed it on the number twelve as they quite liked that number & that I will forever be an organic seaweed eating, flowing haired mermaid.

Ah yesh theories are abounding as to whether this affects us or not i guess. But personally i never really liked being a goat...
