How to Tag & Bag Any Man Using Astrology


Astrology, is it a science or a bunch of hogwash? Perhaps you see it as just a vicarious thrill and there's no harm in reading your own horoscope on a daily basis.

For me, astrology has always been somewhat of a hobby. My shelves are lined with various tomes on the subject and my prized possession is a rather dog-eared copy of Linda Goodman's "Sun Signs" which I've had for nearly three decades. While I make no claims to being an expert astrologist, I have upon occasion given friends a more expanded view of their natal chart or a compatibility analysis of their current relationship when requested to do so.

This hub was inspired by an innocent, or not so innocent, conversation with some of my favorite hub-friends. At first, it seemed a cut and dried topic...a tongue in cheek look at astrological signs as they applied to men and how they could be used by women for their benefit. Unfortunately, the more I wrote, the more I wanted to know (which is quite typical for a hobbyist) and before I knew it, the entire hub had expanded into a monster that I could barely fit a cage around.

I'd like to acknowledge one particular source that unwittingly aided and abetted this hub. If astrology is your thing and you'd like to learn more, I encourage you to check out this website: Loonsounds Astro Humor.

Also, the wonderful good/bad images were provided courtesy of Clayboys, Inc. If you have enjoyed the artist's work as much as I have, drop by and say hello at www.clayboys.com or drop a line to theboys@clayboys.com.

Aries Male 101

Aries (3/21 - 4/20): There is a reason why this sign is considered the child of the zodiac...and most men born under this sign will behave like children. Keeping in mind that Aries is a cardinal sign AND a fire element it is not surprising that this man can try the patience of a lot of women. If you happen to like your men on the immature side and don't mind indulging in their constant "look at me" behavior, then you will get along fabulously with your little he-sheep. The perk of being with an Aries man is that life will never be dull. They need constant stimulation, mentally and physically, or they will sulk and become morose. Luckily, they aren't very difficult to entice into an adventure and you'll enjoy it every bit as much as they do. Just remember that acknowledgement of their enjoyment is more important than yours.

Aries Prayer: "Dear God! Give me PATIENCE and I want it NOW!"

How many Aries does it take to change a lightbulb? "Just one. You want to make something of it?"

Aries Daily Affirmation: "I honor and express all facets of my being, regardless of state and local laws."

How to Bag & Tag

Coo over him and make a big fuss. Show him all of your bright, shiny interesting gadgets and then try not to lose your temper if he happens to take one apart and loses interest before he puts it back together again. Don't even hint that the world doesn't revolve around him.

How to Get Rid of Him (Loonsounds)

Be a mouse grabber. Never follow their lead. Keep a steady dialogue with all of your exes. Fool with their hair after they just fixed it. Forget their birthday. Try to order them around.

Signs You've Been Dumped (Loonsounds)

You find yourself alone, standing amidst blowing dust and flecks, strips of black tire tracks, heavy gasoline fumes, and very little else. Slowly, slowly, the sound of the roaring engine recedes, thundering silence taking its place.

Taurus Male 101

 

Taurus (4/21 - 5/21): The symbolic figure of this astrological sign is the bull...probably because the Democrats had already taken the donkey. A Tauren is simply put the most stubborn and pigheaded male in the entire zodiac. The more you push, the deeper he will dig in those hooves and nothing you can do will change his mind...except for feminine charm. Taurens are suckers for creature comforts...whether it's food, a cozy home or an enveloping hug. They are generally good-natured, sentimental at heart and prone to romantic gestures once their needs have been met.

A Tauren's Prayer: "Dear God, please help me accept CHANGE in my life, but NOT YET."

How many Taurens does it take to change a light bulb? One, but just "try" to convince them that the burned-out bulb is useless and should be thrown away.

A Tauren's Daily Affirmation: "Before I criticize a man, I walk a mile in his shoes. That way, if he gets angry, he's a mile away and barefoot."

What a Tauren says after sex: "I'm hungry - pass the pizza."

How to Bag & Tag

Feed him a home-cooked meal, tuck him into a warm cozy bed and assure him that he is completely in charge and doesn't have to go to sleep if he doesn't want to. You just wanted him to be comfortable.

How to Get Rid of Him (Loonsounds)

Acquire some credit cards by placing their name first on the application. Don't tell. Sit in their chair. Hide/eat all the sweets in the house. Insist on joint accounts. Refuse to sign a prenup.

Signs You've Been Dumped (Loonsounds)

You offer extravagant food, they say they've lost their appetite and when you turn away from them in bed, they just turn away from you in the opposite direction (instead of poking you with their horns). Taurus: Either they're all over you, or they're gone.

Gemini Male 101

Gemini (5/22 - 6/21): Meet the zodiac's original multi-tasker. He can bury his nose in the computer so deeply that you would swear he didn't hear a word you just said. Do yourself a favor and don't challenge him though...it's insulting. Not only has he heard everything you have said, he's also processed it in his usual rational manner and has come up with a solution to your problem...even if you were just commenting on the weather. Unfortunately, unless you are a completely rational woman (and let's face it...not many are), his advice will usually fall far short of the mark of what you consider to be normal for most humans. But understand...this man isn't really human...he's more of a machine.

A Gemini's Prayer: "Yo God...(or is it Goddess?)...Who are you?...What are you?.....Where are You?.....How many of you ARE there? I can't figure you out!"

How many Geminis does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Two, but the job never gets done - they just keep arguing about who is supposed to do it and how it's supposed to be done!

A Gemini's Daily Affirmation: "I am at one with my duality."

What a Gemini says after sex: "Have you seen the TV remote?"

How to Bag & Tag

This man will fall for a human puzzle...so be enigmatic. He's not threatened in the least by your intelligence, so don't be afraid to use it. Ignoring him will also work as he really hates to be ignored

How to Get Rid of Him (Loonsounds)

Don't let them get a word in edgewise. Regarding gossip, make it clear that you are "above it all." Be Possessive. Get call waiting and put them on hold. Avoid sexual experimenting.

Signs You've Been Dumped (Loonsounds)

You hear it from a friend who heard it from another, who over-heard it from a third (who, not realizing that he/she was on speaker phone), discussed his/her opinion on the latest gossip which he/she picked up vis-a-vis the MMORG you used to play together.

Cancer Male 101

Cancer (6/22 - 7/21): And now we bump right into our first truly emotional sign. Oh sure, he has you fooled doesn't he? There is no way this man could be all smooshy deep down because he's downright sarcastic and cantankerous, right? Wrong. He's so squishy inside that he has to wear that nearly impenetrable shell to keep people from taking advantage of his tender bits. A Cancerian male loves food and usually you'll find him in the kitchen or at the very least knowing the best places to dine. Unfortunately, being a Cancerian male also increases the likelihood of him being a mama's boy. Unless his mother was somebody like Lizzie Borden, you'll never be half the woman that his sainted mother is or was. Don't even try to argue with him on this point...because if it's a choice between you and Mom...you might be packing your toothbrush.

A Cancerian's Prayer: "Dear Daddy, I know I shouldn't depend on you so much, but you're the only One I can count on while my security blanket is at the cleaners."

How many Cancerians does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Just one. But it takes a therapist three years to help them through the grief process.

A Cancerian's Daily Affirmation: "I need not suffer in silence while I can still moan, whimper, and complain."

What a Cancerian says after sex: "When are we getting married?"

How to Bag & Tag

Show him your photo album or year book...or even better, let him show you his. Then if it seems to be working...invite his mother to have dinner with the two of you. You'll never get rid of him if you follow this advice, so be careful. Cancerians can be rather clingy and are apt to stalk you.

How to Get Rid of Him (Loonsounds)

Be rude to their mother's face. Never laugh. Insist on having it done your way in the kitchen. Be moodier than they are. Sabotage their family reunion. Chip away at their nest egg.

Signs You've Been Dumped (Loonsounds)

You become a strict vegan, and they say nothing about it. Weeks later you cut yourself badly while cooking your own veggie plate dinner. When you cry out and show them jets of blood, they look up from their call with mom just long enough to say "Oh. Bummer".

Leo Male 101

Leo (7/22 - 8/22): Just as the lion is the king of the jungle, so Leo is the benevolent ruler of the zodiac. Like the Tauren, Leo men tend to be big ol' teddy bears when content. When they aren't content, be prepared for a lot of moping and wounded looks that will make you feel guilty as hell. Leos love to spoil their women, even more than they love to spoil themselves...which is saying a lot. Leos love the finer things in life and will only want the best. They love to be the center of attention and will literally and figuratively always be found basking proudly in the limelight of their success. However, keep in mind that their display of ego is usually well-earned.

A Leo's Prayer: "Hi, Pop! I'll bet you're really proud to have me as your kid!"

How many Leos does it take to change a lightbulb? Leos don't change light bulbs, although sometimes their agent will get a Virgo to do the job for them while they're out.

A Leo's Daily Affirmation: I say nice things about myself. I do nice things for myself. I find someone to buy me nice things.

What a Leo says after sex: "Wasn't I fantastic?"

How to Bag & Tag

Act helpless and damsel-like. Leo men love to feel needed...it makes them feel all heroic and masculine. Once "rescued"...be prepared to show some gratitude. Luckily, Leo men are very easy to please. Stroke their ego, reassure them that you could not imagine the world without their presence and you'll have him purring in no time at all.

How to Get Rid of Him (Loonsounds)

Laugh at them instead of with them. Yawn when they are talking (don't cover your mouth.) Criticize their hair, then say you are only kidding. Remove all the mirrors. Majorly outshine them.

Signs You've Been Dumped (Loonsounds)

They perform a colorful skit for you wherein they portray themselves as the hero/ine who tried, and failed, to ‘make it work' . They then flounce off with several of their long time admirers from the audience, leaving you clapping as they go.

Virgo (8/23 - 9/22): If you long for a life where everything is organized, then a Virgo man is tailor made for you. Virgo men value consistency above all else and will have a contingency plan for any event. Check their cupboards or medicine cabinets if you doubt me. Unfortunately, sometimes their nit-picky ways can be rather aggravating to some women. He won't understand why you are upset and trying to explain it to him will be met with a rather perplexed look. Obviously you are having one of your irrational womanly type moments. This sign also has more than its fair share of hypochondriacs and pessimists...so beware.

A Virgo's Prayer: "Dear God, please make the world a better place, and don't screw it up like you did the last time."

How many Virgos does it take to change a lightbulb? Approximately 1.0000000 with an error of +/- 1 millionth.

A Virgo's Daily Affirmation: "I am grateful that I am not as judgmental as all those censorious, self-righteous people around me."

What a Virgo says after sex: "I need to wash the sheets."

How to Bag & Tag

Chasteness and helpless disorganization. Virgo men don't usually go for the promiscuous type of women because they prefer quality over quantity. Ask them for advice on how to get more control of your life, your finances, your stock portfolio, your car's engine performance, the best cough medicine to use and then listen attentively. Whatever you do...do not ask for help with anything that is emotionally messy. He'll run...possibly in a state of complete panic.

How to Get Rid of Him (Loonsound)

Criticize them. Be extremely vague. Continue to have sex, but don't let them satisfy you. Blow your nose often, scattering used tissues all around the house. Call them at their job to chat.

Signs You've Been Dumped (Loonsounds)

They drive you to a new apartment, give you the key. Inside you find it post-it notes stuck on every mirror, cabinet and appliance, each containing mind numbingly detailed details; recommendations on your life. When you glance out the window they're gone

Libra Male 101

Libra (9/23 - 10/22): Balance and harmony are what Libra men are all about. They appreciate beautiful things and while that might sound intimidating, understand that they don't always subscribe to the popular idea of beauty. In their opinion, only they can fairly judge what is beautiful and what is not. Libra men thrive in peaceful environments, so if you are a shrew...forget it. Nothing will turn off this man quicker than a woman screeching in his ear or nagging about what is to him an inconsequential matter. Libra men are great at rationalizing everything...even your emotions, which might actually cause you to scream...but don't. Libra men are notorious for being fickle, possibly an unavoidable side effect of their natural charm and charisma.

A Libran's Prayer: "Dear God, I know I should make decisions for myself. But, on the other hand, what do YOU think?"

How many Librans does it take to change a lightbulb? Er, two. Or maybe one. No - on second thought, make that two. Is that okay with you?

A Libran's Daily Affirmation: "To have a successful relationship I must learn to make it look like I'm giving as much as I'm getting."

What a Libran says after sex: "I liked it if you liked it."

How to Bag & Tag

Ask him out. No other sign appreciates a direct approach more than a Libra. But beware...if you ask him out to dinner and the meal sucks, he'll point out that it was your choice. Don't be offended...he can't help himself. Besides, he'll say it with one of those patented charming smiles on his face and you'll forgive him.

How to Get Rid of HIm (Loonsounds)

On your paired outings, gawk at other babes/dudes. Rant when they talk about their exes. Women: fart and belch a lot. Men: Scatter your soiled tighty whiteys (inside out) & miss the toilet

Signs You've Been Dumped (Loonsounds)

They pen you a lovely thank you/apology note on their personal monogrammed stationary about all of the beautiful times they had with you ‘back iin the day.' It will arrive in your mailbox two days after they moved out, tucked into their wedding invitation.

Scorpio Male 101

Scorpio (10/23 - 11/21): Everyone has heard something about the sexual mystique of this astrological sign. It's true. Scorpio men are passionate to the point of excess...in everything they do. However, unlike other signs, they have an unnerving amount of self-control over their passions...which is probably what makes them so attractive. Scorpio men are ego personified. They feel they are superior and in some cases this might be justified, hence they usually can be seen with a rather smug, amused look on their faces and a bit of a strut to their walk. Never toy with a Scorpio...ever. Not only will you lose, but you'll probably need a fire extinguisher to put out the flames that just engulfed your ass. However, if you like to play with fire...as I do...a Scorpio man can be very challenging and fun.

A Scorpio's Prayer: "Dear God, help me forgive my enemies, even if the bastards don't deserve it."

How many Scorpios does it take to change a lightbulb? That information is strictly secret and shared only with the Enlightened Ones in the Star Chamber of the Ancient Hierarchical Order.

A Scorpio's Daily Affirmation: "I have the power to channel my imagination into ever-soaring levels of suspicion and paranoia."

What a Scorpio says after sex: "Perhaps I should untie you now."

How to Bag & Tag

Throw down the gauntlet. Scorpios love a challenge. Once you have managed to catch his attention, make him chase you around a bit before letting him win. I don't mean running around the coffee table a few times...even though later he might enjoy that, I mean mentally and emotionally...allow him to think he is manipulating everything to get closer to you. He doesn't ever need to know that he's walked right into your trap. Trust me...it's one secret you want to keep to yourself. Scorpios can get downright nasty when they find out that it wasn't them pulling the strings.

How to Get Rid of Him (Loonsounds)

Stop hiding things. Tell them you are renouncing sex for Lent or call them by the wrong name during sex. Make unilateral decisions on everything. Always be late. And you drive. Period.

Signs You've Been Dumped (Loonsounds)

You come home and your keys don’t work. When you try to break in the police come and arrest you for violation of a restraining order you didn’t know existed. From jail you receive an autographed copy of their new scandalous publication namely, The Unauthorized Biography of You.

Sagittarius (11/23 – 12/21): If there was ever a knight in shining armor in the zodiac, Sagittarius would be it. Unfortunately, they’re more like Don Quixote than Sir Lancelot. They pick the strangest causes…usually the lost ones…to fight for. Sagittarian men are brutally honest. If they tell you that you need to lose a few pounds because you are starting to look like a heifer, they will be completely baffled about why you are offended. It’s just the truth…geesh. You can usually recognize a Sagittarian male by the fact that he usually has at least one foot stuffed into his mouth at all times. However, on the flip side…there is a lot to be said for honesty. They just don’t understand the word tact.

A Sagittarian’s Prayer: "OH ALMIGHTY, ALL KNOWING, ALL-LOVING, ALL-POWERFUL, OMNIPRESENT, EVERLASTING GOD, IF I'VE ASKED YOU ONCE, I'VE ASKED YOU A THOUSAND TIMES --- HELP ME STOP EXAGGERATING!!!!!!!!!!"

How many Sagittarians does it take to change a light bulb? The sun is shining, the day is young and we've got our whole lives ahead of us, and you're inside worrying about a stupid light bulb?

A Sagittarian’s Daily Affirmation: “I am willing to make the mistakes if someone else is willing to learn from them.”

What a Sagittarian says after sex: “Don't call me - I'll call you.”

How to Bag & Tag

Be smart and give him lots of room. Sagittarian men need lots of space to explore and feed their endless curiosity. Don’t be jealous of his natural tendency to talk to complete strangers…everybody interests him. Once he’s realized that you aren’t going to hobble him, he’ll hand you his leash…albeit a very long leash.

How to Get Rid of Him (Loonsounds)

Cry whenever they are painfully honest. Threaten suicide on their cell while they are overseas. Take the only vehicle, then stay out all night. Hide their keys. Make them to-do lists

Signs You've Been Dumped (Loonsounds)

You no longer fit into your own bed because they let all their dogs growl and snap at you when you try to sneak in. Later when you ‘mistakenly’ glance in their suitcase, you see a 12 pack of condoms (you don’t use them) and the book:Breaking Up for Dummies..

Capricorn (12/22 – 1/20): Once again we have a man that prefers quality over quantity. There will be women he may toy with, but there is a difference between those women and the one he will introduce to his family and friends. Image is everything to the Capricorn man. He considers himself upwardly mobile…socially, financially, emotionally. He will never tolerate a woman that drags him down. On the outside, he may appear a taciturn loner…but that is only because he is always aware of his responsibilities and takes them seriously. But get past that façade and you’ll find a man who has some amazing dreams. The difference between Capricorn men and other men is that he usually finds a way to make those dreams a reality through hard work and determination. It takes a lot to deter a Capricorn from his course of action, but once he makes that decision it’s an abrupt one and there’s never any turning back.

A Capricorn’s Prayer: "Dear Father, I was going to pray, but I guess I ought to figure things out for myself. Thanks anyway

How many Capricorns does it take to change a lightbulb? I don't waste my time with these childish jokes.

A Capricorn’s Daily Affirmation: “I no longer need to punish, deceive, or compromise myself, unless I want to stay employed.”

What a Capricorn says after sex: “Do you have a business card?”

How to Bag & Tag

The goat is tricky to catch simply because he is so careful about his choices. You can’t really fool him by being something you are not for as long as it will take to convince him to take a chance. I will say this though, if you come across as being equally choosy, have a good dose of healthy self-respect and take pride in your appearance…a Capricorn just might decide to put you through your paces to see if you measure up. You can’t really fault them for this though…they truly do have a lot to offer a woman.

How to Get Rid of Him (Loonsounds)

Do everything to excess. Hang all over them in public. Get drunk at their office party, and make out with their colleague’s spouse. Stop strangers with strollers to drool over the babies.

Signs You've Been Dumped (Loonsounds)

Instead of splitting the check at your birthday celebration as usual, they lay it all on you, along with a ‘what’s yours what’s mine’ check list, and copies in triplicate of all the prenuptial agreements, attorneys documents, and zero balance savings.

Aquarius (1/21 – 2/19): Aquarians are naturally friendly and consider everyone to be their buddy, their pal or their mate. They have a tough time getting truly serious about any one woman and when they do, it is a rather threatening feeling. They’re natural dawdlers when it comes to declaring their intentions…usually. It’s not that they want to lose you…they are just rather uncomfortable with deep emotions. They prefer to keep things light and easy.

An Aquarian’s Prayer: "Hi God! Some say you're a man. Some say you're a woman. I say we're ALL God. So, why pray? Let's have a party!"

How many Aquarians does it take to change a lightbulb? Well, you have to remember that everything is energy, so...

An Aquarian’s Daily Affirmation: “In some cultures what I do would be considered normal.”

What an Aquarian says after sex: “Now let's try it with our clothes off!”

How to Bag & Tag

Keep secrets. If you are one of those overly-chatty types that divulge everything about yourself in the first fifteen minutes, you won’t stand a chance. You’ll notice a strong reaction to your mysterious behavior and while it’s not what you expected, it’s a sign that you are succeeding. Aquarian men get downright cantankerous when they can’t solve a puzzle. They’ll turn their back on you and walk off in a huff…and then their curiosity gets the better of them and they’ll be back trying to pry those secrets out of you. Give them plenty of rope and just allow them to gradually hang themselves.

How to Get Rid of Him (Loonsounds)

Loudly oppose their latest cause. Initiate daily heart to heart chats about your personal feelings and moods. Tell them what to wear. Reiterate: “Baby, it’s me and you against the world.”

Signs You've Been Dumped (Loonsounds)

What makes you think you were ever paired up with Aquarius to begin with? What happens when you hold a magnifying glass over a hologram or view it through a telescope? What about a reflection of a rainbow as seen in a mirror?

Pisces (2/20 – 3/20): More moody than a Cancerian and with less control than a Scorpio…we come to the old man of the zodiac, Pisces. Unfortunately, their experiences in life heavily influence their outlook. If the world has been kind to them and they’ve found a measure of success, then you will know immediately by their tendency toward a cheerfully dreamy disposition heavily laced with optimism and romance. Beware the Pisces that has suffered miserably. If you want that experience, just tie a boulder around your neck and jump off the nearest bridge. Otherwise, Pisces men are very compassionate and tender souls.

A Piscean’s Prayer: "Heavenly Father, as I prepare to consume this last fifth of Scotch to drown out my pain and sorrow, may my inebriation be for Thy greater Honor and Glory."

How many Pisceans does it take to change a lightbulb? Lightbulb? What lightbulb?

A Piscean’s Daily Affirmation: “As I learn the innermost secrets of people around me, they reward me in many ways to keep me quiet.”

What a Piscean says after sex: “What did you say your name was?”

How to Bag & Tag

Show you care. Hold their hand and indulge in all the silly little romantic gestures you want. They love that kind of thing. Listen to them. Keep a well-stocked bar and buy tissue in bulk.

How to Get Rid of Him (Loonsounds)

Quit drinking (or at least, quit drinking with them). Overuse the word budget. Make them give you every detail of their day. Share athletes foot. Go #2 while they are trapped in the bathtub.

Signs You've Been Dumped (Loonsounds)

You’re confused. They just went ‘poof.’ . Slowly you convince yourself that he/she is sick/ maimed/dead. Longing for closure, you launch a global search. Truth be told, they’re only drunk (again) and getting laid (again), this time on some garden rooftop uptown.

Very funny. Especially that I wad indeed asked by an Aries male I was dating to join him in changing a light bulb and to make something of it. It really was something.

And as a Leo, I really do think that after sex. Heh.

Hi Cass - I answer EVERYTHING (most of the time). Interesting combination there....Leo woman/Scorpio man. Not what I would have picked out for you, although I admit I understand completely how it could have seemed irresistible at first and there's nothing you can't handle (at least this is what YOU believe) :) You are adventurous...courageous...and you have a very big heart that you mask with gruff affection. You love to be wined and dined...BUT...it does not have to be fancy...just interesting and unusual for you to feel special and loved. Careful though...Leo women have a tendency to expect it as their due and you can't always be the queen. Scorpio is not a good long term choice for you...although I have seen it work...usually when the couple pursues their own interests outside of the relationship. I would put you with a LIbra Male...it seems like a better balance for you. I think the two of you would bring out the best in one another.

Puddytat:

First off...let me tell you that I absolutely adore Leo women. They're fiercely independent, sassy and a lot of fun to be with.

Second...you are going to have your hands full with your Libra/Scorpio man, but that's not to say it isn't doable. It will just require a lot of work on your part which is something you would never shy away from anyway.

On the bright side, both of you enjoy the finer things in life and know how to indulge in creature comforts (which in my opinion is not a bad thing at all). However, you like to be in charge and as a Leo...when you do, gestures tend to be larger than life and occasionally you can get a bit heavy-handed. Not to mention that after you've moved heaven and earth, accomplishing the goal, you expect to be petted and told just how wonderful you are.

Libra is more concerned with the end result and not necessarily how it has been accomplished...as long as none of it disturbs his lovely dreams and sense of peace. With the Scorpio influence, I have a sense that if he's ever disturbed, he can become rather sullen or nasty and that will always hurt the tender feelings of the female pussycat. "Why is he angry...didn't you just do something wonderful for him?" I'm sure you have several examples of just that scenario.

Start purring more and using those softer feminine wiles that you possess to soothe your mate. Make his favorite dinner or take him out to his favorite restaurant. Wear his favorite perfume and talk in a softer voice....

Do you remember the old Love's Baby Soft perfume commercials? It's like that..."You can try hard...or you can try soft." He is actually very proud that you are so capable...just lose the combat boots and put on your slippers. :)

Oh...and don't ask him what's wrong or worry so much about that. If there is something wrong, a Libra/Scorpio will never tell you anyway and your doubt will only make him think that maybe there IS something wrong when in fact nothing is wrong.

Continue to be you...trust me, he doesn't want you to be anything else than that...just do it quietly. :)

Good luck and thanks for commenting!

Hello everyone, well first of all I had a blast reading this...I'm a leo born Aug 13th, I was married to a gemini for 13 yrs, I'm currently dating a Libra, not sure is he is a cusp..10-22. But it has been a most rewarding relationship...until he has been a little on the lazy side...so here is my question to Spryte...Please tell me is this going to work...or am I just wasting my time. I've dated almost all the signs but never a libra and here he is my knight in shining armor...will he stick around long enough...we have loads of fun, our dates are exotic and dream like. He just recently got into this quite mode...and I'm just scared as to why. I've asked him and he says nothing is wrong...but I do feel there is...I'm trying to give him some space and time to sort this out as I've read that libraians sometimes needs this to figure what direction to go...or to measure things out. I'd really appreciate it if you would get back to me...thank you in advance.

Puddytat.

Well dee...I can't fault your taste in men. A woman would have to be pretty much dead to be immune to the charms of a Scorpio male. While perhaps not a match made in heaven...an Aquarian/Scorpio match is not really a total write-off either. On the upside, if it works out...you can pretty much guarantee that you've gotten yourself a prize specimen. Personally, I'd say that a Scorpio can only benefit from a relationship with an Aquarian as it keeps them from becoming too full of themselves. :) You might want to remind them of that if they forget...

And thank you for the lovely comment :)

This was a very good hub! I am an Aquarius who seems to be attracted to Scorpio Males which is crazy because many things I have read say we are not the best match! Sometimes they almost seem too exhausting to deal with because being the way that I am, I am sure to piss one off! I have before and man its not fun. But I seem to be a magnet to them or perhaps there is just an abundance of them...hmmm.

Well it really depends on the type of fish that you are! Some fish like to fight the current and swim upstream, while some are content to hang around in placid pools all day.

For the calm fishies, Cancerians and Leos are both good choices provided you don't allow your natural tendency to melancholy to over-dampen the puttytat's high spirits. As for the fighting fishy...you'd do well with a Cancerian there too...a Virgo, Libra, Scorpio and possibly a Capricorn would suit.

Like the Aries, which is the child of the sign, Pisces as the old man requires a lot of attention...just of a different sort. They require nurturing and tenderness...whereas the Aries simply just wants everyone to "look at me!" So look for the signs with patience, compassion and the ability to dream for compatibility and you won't go wrong.

Thanks Spryte!I def do tend to play hot and cold with guys.I try not to but sometimes I get annoyed if they are being to clingy.I did forget to mention that my mom is a Taurus and both my dad and brother are Cancers.however, my brother is more emotional than my dad or at least he shows it more.like way more.when he was little he would cry for everything if someone came to visit us and left he cried, if my parents fought he cried,if they scolded him he cried.If was interesting bc it would bother me bc I get sentimental and emotional but I don't like showing it.Happy Holidays btw Spryte and everyone else!!!!!!


spryte profile image

spryte 7 years ago from Arizona, USA Author

Gaby: LOL! Well...your nickname is well-suited to you :) You were born on a cusp, so your personality will reflect both of those signs, even though you seem to lean more toward Aquarius, there are definite Capricorn influences in there as well. I can probably make an educated guess that you drive most men crazy with your hot and cold personality.

Leo's do tend to spoil their women, but remember they are also very sensitive. As much as it might seem they are putting you are on a pedestal, part of the reason you are up there is to get a better view of their own magnificence. If you don't pamper the puttytat he'll sulk off and leave you to get off your own damn pedestal faster than you can say...WTF?

Taurens are a good choice...but be prepared for some stubbornness. You won't always get your way, which in some cases is a good thing for you. You have an idea of what you would like, definitely what you don't like...but you get distracted easily and sometimes talk yourself out of a good decision. A Tauren won't allow that...or he'll only allow it for so long before he'll put down a hoof and blow some steam out at you. But if you are into domestic bliss...that's what you'll get with this sign.

Stay away from Pisces and Cancer...they'll drown you in emotion and judging from your statement, that's the last thing you want. You might consider a Sagittarian for a partner, but be prepared to give as good as you get. They won't be leashed unless it's a long one.

I wish you all the best in finding just the right guy for you! I'm sure he's out there and you've got the right idea not to settle. :)


Gaby 7 years ago

I am an aquarian female and I was born 1/21.It's quite confusing because few astrologers put me as a capricorn.However,I totally 100% fit the aquarian description.I mean I run at slighest sign of a relationship getting too serious too fast,too clingy.I runaway from needy,emotional people.Although I do tend to always get teary eyed for almost anything,except when we spend thanksgiving with my mom's second cousin and they all cry while saying thanks,that annoys and I wonder why the f are they crying.We are very open-minded and personally I dislike people who can't at least respect other's opinions.I'm aloof and unattached.I hate doing what everyone else is does.The guy I am interested is a Taurus, is that a good match?what would we both have to do to make it work?or how is that relationship going ot work over all?I had this other tauren guy chase after me for a few years I said no in every way possible.I even had to be mean to tell him no even though I felt bad but he just wouldn't get it.I don't know if he still does get it.I've been talking to a Leo,however, I've only gotten to know the part that they spoil their women.that is so true.he probably has me on a pedestal,which I'm not sure it's a good thing.Aquarius/aquarius don't work at all I don't think.I tried it and I felt like I was dating a friend.So after an entire essay written.What sign would work great with an aqaurian?

Izetti - I know of another Tauren/Aquarian relationship that has lasted for years...so it must be a good pick for you. I think they're getting ready to celebrate their 40th. :) I agree...Scorpios have a tendency to heat things up, although occasionally they do have a rather sadistic tendency. I adore female Leos as friends, but as male lovers...hmm...they do have a tendency to require a lot of petting and reassurance that they are in charge. Although at times...I truly think I'd rather spend my days reassuring a Leo than trying to get my Aries husband to quit whining and eat his dinner or I'll send him to bed without any....err...

I have this tendency to forget he's not really a child...and with my maternal Cancerian instinct it can make for some rathe ramusing moments.

What a FUN topic!Linda Goodman's Love signs book is so eerily right on. I stole my mom's copy when I was in high school and I admit I'd check it out whenever I began dating someone new. I went against the better advice of Linda's book and had the worst dating realtionahip ever. Sorry Leo's, you are not my cup of tea- I fare better with any other sign but them. I am a Taurus now married to an Aquarius -oddly never dated one before him and I haven't even checked out our signs together so this hub reminded me I should do that (thanks!). Tauruses are sensual by nature and I know my husband does not appeal to that side or bother with the extra (wink wink) stuff romantically, etc. On a side note- Scorpios are hot in bed. Leos need too much assurance and attention- ugh! My mom is a Leo too and we have been known to clash.

A leaf falling in Africa could lead to a tidal wave in Indonesia.

Don't worry about Gwendy's beans. In this green and fertile land of which I appear to have become surrogate wise and benevolent father, as well as Lord High Poo-Bah, any foul smell emitted in the open immediately freezes solid and is exported to Rotorua to add to the ambiance of our tourist industry. And if you think that I'd let Gwendymom or her smelly kids inside anything other than a fish-processing factory, you've got to be out of your tiny little minds!

Aquarians may be altruistic, but we're not completely crackers.

Shirley - Pisces are actually a good match for Cancer BUT...and here is the important BUT part...occasionally you can get a bad fish, or maybe even two as you've discovered. And of course you know what happens when fish goes bad. It starts to smell to high heaven and you have to take the trash ALL the way to the curb so it doesn't stink up the rest of your house. Luckily most fishies aren't so stinky and your son sounds like a fine example!

Feline - Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed this!

As for the rest of you instigators, I think CR decided to keep his shower to himself and is not sharing, hence the lack of invitation. I'm fine with that as I hate sharing the hot water anyway! :P

Group shower? You gonna have a hub-cam?

I am a Cancer Horse. Love it, wouldn't want to be anything else. We are supposed to be perfectly matched to Pisceans, but whoever decided that was so, was off their rocker! I married one and dated another (not at the same time) and their moods, deceitfulness and addictions were more than this little Cancer girl could handle. It was kinda freaky realizing that they were both practically the same person in a different body. The Piscean that I gave birth to however, is exactly the opposite. In fact, he's perfect. :) As are his sisters, but they're not Pisces, either one.

This is a great hub, Spryte! Tons of fun to read, too.

TOF - I used to love getting rowdy and singing that song! As for Aquarian's being egotistical...they are much too good natured to ever make any such claim seriously and hence the reason why they are always welcome wherever they go...people just love having them around.

Please give my fondest fondling (platonically of course) to Tink. LOL!

High Spryte, just to let you know that Tinkerbell the bear, who's desire for lady bears you destroyed at B.T.'s behest sends his love (platonically of course)

There was a song that came out in the early eighties: "Oh Lord, it's hard to be humble, (When you're perfect in every way! - I can't bear to look in the mirror, for I get better looking each day.)"

The bit I like most goes: "Some folks say that I'm egotistical; Hell, I don't even know what it means. But I think that it has something to do with the way, that I fill out my skin-tight blue jeans!"

This of course doesn't fit me as I'm Aquarian, and above all that.

Love,

T.O.F.

Hi Nicole: I'm certainly glad I made you laugh out loud! :) I'm not sure how well I could do one on women since this list was compiled after much research (dating) and I've never dated a woman before...but perhaps I could find something or approach it from a different angle. I'll think on it some more and see if it's doable.

Hmmm...Ajcor, now that you mention it, I do recall reading something about the "I feel" and "I know" sort of thing. This will probably bug me until I remember it. Unfortunately, you are right that sometimes same sign relationships don't work out. Two Cancers together would probably butt heads quite often since they are both natural born leaders...and when you double the tendency to be able to depress yourself, it can be rather melodramatic. However, when it's funtime...two Cancers together would have a GREAT time.

I had a Cancer/Cancer relationship just once and felt that nobody understood me better. But we had a tendency to try to outdo each other too...which irritated me to no end.

I have a 7/1 brother and a 7/21 sister...and we're VERY tight. Perhaps it's because we are siblings and when we don't get along we could either beat each other up or tell Mom. :)

Anyway...I'm leaving work early today (yay!) so I'll see you all tonight.

Hi Spryte - just back from a few days away  - and thought to tell you that I was married to a cancer first time around and it wasn't pretty - cancer/cancer - but my second son was born on my birthday 7/2 and we are remarkably compatible. My older son is a Sag. and is a traveller (as is no 2 son) and ambitious but in the right way (sheer hard work). I see from your hub that sixtorso, You, me and who else are Cancers?

I once read a book that said that astrological signs can also be categorised by their emotional personalities - e.g. Cancer "I feel" and Acquarius "I know" Pisces "I am" etc. Unfortunately am unable to find the book and that is all I can remember. Maybe Leo could be "I roar" Capricorn "I will" Gemini "Me too" cheers.

I don't usually talk to my family or even my close friends about my most intiment moments because I reallly am a private person (based on the things I say here you probably didn't know that about me) and I know that the people in my life have to still look at me and my husband and make their decision about us based on things like what is going on now. I would never ask anyone to choose sides, or say a bad thing about my husband that made him look like an ass and then expect my family be ok with it. That kind of thing is ust not fair to anyone. So basically I haven't talked to anyone about it and it has just become a huge burden for me that I needed to get rid of. Sorry if you are disappointed.

Hey gang. G-mom, I'm glad you got some 1-on-1 Spryte time!!! Chris and Ag (aka PP), hi gentlemen. I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. I just wrote about mine in my newest rant hub. But now I'm off to zzzzland. Dad was taken to the hospital tonight after Hubby and I left. So I will be heading back over there tomorrow. Gotta get a little kitty squish in to boost my stamina.

This time I will be taking my trusty Internet therapist (aka HubPages) with me for relief! Hugs to all who need them... as I know they will be returned to me in kind.

MM, thanks for your offer I truly apprecite it. I might need support and love from friends when and if I publish it. I have given my password to Spryte and Christoph for their opinion for another hub I had written and I think I better keep it to a minimum for people who have my password. This does not mean that I do not trust you oe anything like that, but I know that Spryte will give me an honest answer and a female perspective that I could use. That is why I did not have Christoph read it. I hope that neither one of you are offended by this.

It's funny but I can only recall with clarity ONE Capricorn that I met...and I'm still trying to figure out how I even got that much information out of him, considering the circumstances of that particular meeting. (Mysterious I know...but it's a long story and one I may tell some day).

Nah...your Leo son will always have a big ego, and you are EXPECTED to feed it. :) As for your daughter, it's her job as an Aries to butt heads with people...all you can do is make sure she's not butting it against a lost cause. Aries never really know the difference and figure they can solve any problem eventually that way.


gwendymom profile image

gwendymom 8 years ago from Oklahoma

Yep, that is me, straight forward and blunt, it gets me into a lot of trouble. I am always sticking my foot in my mouth, maybe one of these days it will get so far in there that I won't be able to say anything, which of course would be for the good. LOL, I am a mess like that. I wonder why you haven't come across many capricorns? I have two in my family, my sister and my oldest daughter. It's funny that I get along with my dauhter most of the time but me and my sister have never really gotten along that well. I wonder why that is? My younger daughter the aries is always butting heads with me in true aries style. My son the leo, he is such a non complainer, he never has a complaint about anything, and of course he has a pretty big ego, but I might be responsible for that.

Gwendy - Another Sagittarian. I must admit I'm surrprised there are so many of you running around out in the hubs and all with such different writing styles. Although...come to think of it, you, Shade and Misty all do have one trait in common and that's straightforward honesty and occasionally bluntness. You all just wield it a bit differently.

I adore Capricorns...but I haven't met a whole hell of a lot of them. I wonder why that is?


gwendymom profile image

gwendymom 8 years ago from Oklahoma

Well, looks like I am with Shades here, Sagitarius and married to a pisces. I don't know what any of that means, but this very interesting none the less.

You did spend a lot of time on this, great job, it is fun to look at the different signs and compare them to people I know, as in my family. I have a capricorn, leo, and aries in my house, it's a jungle in here.

Hi Spryte. Cancerian to the core. My previous wife was a Leo and my dearly beloved is a Sagittarius as was my father and my late son. My son and dearly beloved were both born on the 29th of November.

Glutton for emotional punishment...that's what you are! :) Then again I'm one to talk sitting here opposite my Aries mate who keeps asking me to turn around and "check this out"...so who am I to talk? It sounds like you've found a more evolved specimen this time around...so good job! :)

Trish: Thank you! I'm so glad you had fun here and wow! That's a houseful there. There's a lot to be said for Leo Dads I think and you are right, he would have spoiled his granddaughter rotten...and she would have adored him back. Sometimes Leos have issues with each other over who is doing the ruling...so parent/sibling relationships can be tough in the teen years...but in the case of grandchildren its usually not a direct issue and even less so when it's opposing genders. I happen to adore Leo females...they're so much fun.

What a fun hub!  I am a Libra, my hubby was a Leo, my daughter is a Libra, my son is a Taurus and my granddaughter is also a Leo.  I always wonder how my granddaughter would have gotten along with her Leo grandfather. It's too sad he passed away long before she was born.  I know for a fact he would have spoiled her rotten :)

And, not only is my best friend a Libra, my brother is also a Libra, and I see the Libra male has a lot of the same qualities as a Libra woman.  Interesting, that explains why we get along so well.

And now, Christoph!  A Leo!  No wonder I like you so much.  Let me pull a Sarah Palin here, and just say 'wink-wink'.  :)

Spryte- I just got back home from the library (Saturday/Sunday volunteer at the local library). It would be lots of fun to meet you. Well rain is fine with me(Esp curling up on my sofa reading a book and overlooking from my window on a saturday afternoon watching rain and having hot chocolate)...hehe  Btw I am a very bad snow driver(hence no east coast for me)...LOL

Btw no news of our Mr.President (I just wanted to see if he fits the bill of what I think of leos since my dad happens to be one). I have my brother who is a Scorpion well actually close to being a cusp between scorpio & Sagittarius. My brother is a scorpio and they can be pretty aggressive in a subtle way. They are also extremely ambitious but not make it open like my dad who is a leo does. Scorpio also never forgets a hurt caused and has the knack of remembering to unleash that when the other person least expects it.  Leo's are simply natural at getting all the attention and they seem so childlike (including getting hurt sometimes like a child). Scorpio tends to keep their emotions as closely guarded as possible. These are two men in my life so far (my dad and my bro).  I leave it to others to decide what they think about my experiences.

No alcohol abuse spryte.  Just a fumble.  It was only his first beer and drank only 1/2.  It's those cheap plastic Boston Garden cups that can be hard to juggle when you lose grip.  Bruins won 3-1!  There's that three again! lol 


spryte profile image

spryte 8 years ago from Arizona, USA Author

Aggie! I got hungry...but I feel better now. Nothing a tuna sammich and a cup of tomato soup with crumbled up saltines in it can't cure.

Are you kidding me? Virgo with a Capricorn/Aquarius person is a great combination. I'm guessing the person in question is your wife? An Aquarian is one of your top choices and a 20/1 person would be on the cusp of that sign despite being a Capricorn. While a Capricorn seems to be up in the air as far as some astrologists are concerned, I would think that their upwardly mobile bent would do a lot to soothe a Virgo's sense of placid order and attention to detail. I'm guessing that the two of you have been a great working team, able to reach whatever goals you have set for yourselves.

Dottie - That sounds like alcohol abuse to me! :) And wooot! for Blake Wheeler! Did the Bruins win? I haven't been following much hockey of late.


Dottie1 profile image

Dottie1 8 years ago from MA, USA

Go Bruins!  Hubby  brought home tickets from work to Bruins game Thursday! We played our Canadien friends, the Toronto Maple Leafs.  During the 3rd period my hubby dropped his beer into the hood of the woman sitting in front of him.  She jumped up and the beer flew out of the hood and dumped all over her boyfriend.  But then again all good things come in threes.  Bruin Rookie Blake Wheeler got the hat trick.

spryte there you go jumping to conclusions, being the true virgo I took too long to select just the right potato chips (crinkle v flat etc) and the cola ( pepsi v coke v sprite ) and by the time I got back you had hitched up your wagon and disappeared.

I cried for at least oh 2 mins.!

Shade - Not in a MILLION years would I have ever pegged you for a Sagittarian.  Now I'm itching to take a look at what else you might have influencing you because surely there must be some Scorpio, Virgo or Leo action running rampant in there.  Maybe even Gemini...who the hell knows. 

I have to admit, I had a LOT of fun with the Aries male since that's what my husband is.  I'll know he's read it when he starts walking...err...stomping around the house with a petulant look as he mutters, "who are you calling childish?" :)

And yeah...that Virgo line is rather universal isn't it?  I thought the same thing when I typed it.  LOL! 


Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 8 years ago from California

Damn, you really did put a ton of time in this. I have to say, I only sort of agree with the Sagitarius stuff. The the idea of self-proclaimed knighthood is true, and I might even by the Don Quixote thing too a little. I am brutally honest, but I don't wonder why people are offended, if they are, I know I botched my attempt at tact. The Bag and Tag thing was dead on though.

I got to say, I laughed pretty hard at the concept of "he-sheep" up top. That was classic. And, Virgo isn't the only one who looks at chick stuff and thinks "obviously you are having one of your irrational womanly type moments." I'm pretty sure that's universal to all men who have ever spent more than three hours with a woman. :P

Nice work. An impressive effort and I can believe it was hard to cage this beast.

LOL...you are correct, I've had to put my hoof down a time or two or three or four.  But that's not fair cuz he's not here to defend himself. To make matters more interesting around here, my son is a Taurus like me and my daughter is a Libra like him.  She too is on a cusp;  of Virgo.  It was like having 6 people here instead of 4.  :)

Dottie:  :)  I'm so glad you enjoyed this hub and got a kick (?) out of the donkey/bull thing.  At the time, I wasn't sure how it would go over so I'm very happy that it was appreciated.  Taurus/Libra...hmmm.  I rather like that combination, but I'll bet you've had to put your hoof down a time or two!

Spryte- Can't imagine Poor Mr.President helping out with your housework. Btw your hubby is coming to our beautiful seattle. Wish you were with him (since I would love to meet such a bubbly fun person).

Christoph - Can I tell you some more things about Leo's (since my dad was one). They can be generous to a fault and highly susceptible to flattery (They maybe taken for a ride for their kind and good heart) Hence I hope Leo's watch out for those people who may take you guys for a ride by pandering to your pride. Just be that warm and generous person to only your closest family and friends...Just my two cents.

CW - If you figure out the secret to doing that...let me know!  I have some rather spongey parts too.  Hah!

And I think Leo men are usually as you describe...big hearted and with tender feelings.  It's sometimes hard to remember when they come across as so in charge and larger than life, that their feelings can be hurt with a casual remark. 

Rochelle - That is what I'm hoping to find out with the poll.  Do certain signs gravitate to writing more than others.  I hope we have enough of a response to get a decent idea.

My dad is a leo too. I find them so majestic, strong personality but a very soft heart(very protective too).

That was so entertaining Spryte.

I'm an Astrologer myself, but not the Tropical kind, so I make the 23 degree adjustment in line with the sky and it fits better for me.

MM - Didn't Bob say he had a really nice tea kettle?...perhaps we could put on some water, make up some nice cups of tea....or cocoa...I think I'm going to just stay here in the corner with you! 

Misty - N'nite sweetie. Trust me...yours will be much better than anything else. AND it will be in hub format so that EVERYONE can enjoy it!

Shame Spryte, I would love a definition of a few women's birth signs that I know, including my own, but if you can do mine based on the dates and times I gave you I shall be happy :)

Must go to sleep now, after 03.08am here. Catch up tomorrow :)

Fits every man I have ever dated or married to a tee. Uncanny! If you need me, I will be sitting in a cozy corner noshing on chips with Mr. Ewing!

Misty - Whatever do you mean...am I gonna write one for women? Geesh, lady...this is for women! I'm not about to divulge astrological secrets of how to bag and tag women to men. That would simply be disastrous! ;) And not nearly as fun....of course. :) I'm still waiting for the person to come in and say, "Ha! This isn't me at all! What rubbish!"

Em - Oh dear...you have my complete and utter sympathy...not to mention amazement that you endured 7 years. I've seen my own husband when he is forced to wait for five minutes...never mind 7 years...and I just try to get as far away as possible. LOL! It's a good combination though...and it makes sense. You...being a Cardinal Fire sign are nothing if not totally committed once you have made a decision. He was bound to succumb. Well done...you bagged yourself a good one.

Rochelle - Then there is hope for me! LOL! My husband and I will be celebrating our first wedding anniversary (we've both been married before) this month and I'm looking forward to many more with him.

OK so we both have married aversarial signs. Yes, it does stay interesting. Bite my tongue? No, I'm the Reluctant Lioness. After 47 years we have kind of adjusted.

Eric - Spoken like a true Aquarian :)  Well...I can't say I've ever seen you cranky so I'll take your word for it that you are a good Aquarian. 

Bob - I adore Taurens...but I'm a Cancer, so it's to be expected.  Thanks for dropping in and that's no bull! (okay...that was bad).

Aggie...dear, Aggie:  Of course I understand!  After reading all of those post-it notes, you were merely running to the corner store...right?

Rochelle - I wish I could take credit for those marvelous graphics, but I can't.  How ironic that Bert Lahr was a Leo and played the Cowardly Lion!  Oh, and it's not unusual to find a shy pussycat in the Leo bunch...not all lions roar.  You know that picture of the cat looking into a mirror and seeing a lion...it's a perfect image for the shyer Leos. 

Aquarian hmmm?  That's an interesting combination!  Do you have to bite your tongue often?  LOL!

I'm a Cancer...to the core.  Both the good and the bad.  My husband is an Aries...the one sign I've been told to avoid at all costs.  Hahah!  So it keeps life interesting.

I married an Aquarius. It took me SEVEN FRICKIN' YEARS, but I did bag him. And all of your Aquarius descriptors are dead on, good and bad.

Now, the fun things is that I'm an Aries and, though while I'm not a man, your descriptors for that all fit me. So we've paired someone who's impatient with someone who's a committment-phobe.

'Twas a long seven years.

Great hub!

Wicked Hub Spryte, and the definitions fit really well )as far as the signs of which I know people if that makes sense in English). Very funny. Are you going to do one for women too???

Wow, Spryte,

This is extensive and I am impressed-- I really like the graphics-- you did them, right?

I once met a humorist/astrogloger at a writer's conference who writes a column in a national magazine and has written several books including "Born on a Rotten Day". I asked her why I am so shy and retiring as a Leo-- and she had a logical-sounding answer. Oddly I was born on the same date (not year) as Bert Lahr who played the Cowardly Lion in the Wizard of Oz.

I have been married to an Aquarian man for many, many many years-- Your good and bad lists match him pretty well in many ways.

Anyhow this is a great hub-- all-inclusive, to say the least.

What's Your sign? (not trying to pick you up.)

"Signs You've Been Dumped (Loonsounds)

They drive you to a new apartment, give you the key. Inside you find it post-it notes stuck on every mirror, cabinet and appliance, each containing mind numbingly detailed details; recommendations on your life. When you glance out the window they're gone"

and I thought you would understand!

As a Taurus I must say i somewhat resemble that depiction, as long as there is a snack and somewhere comfortable and warm to sit.

Spryte, you're an absolute nutter.

I'm an Aquarius, and your description of the "Good Aquarian" is spot on.

Your "Bad Aquarian" is total rubbish.

[I didn't waste an hour though - just skipped straight to Aquarius and ignored the rest. How's that for being insensitive to the time you've spent on this hub.]

Oops. But now I'll have to admit that one of the points in your "Bad Aquarian" description could be correct. Perhaps. But probably not.

Cheers, Eric G.
