For All of the Skeptics...

Wikipedia - Carl Gustav Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist who founded analytical psychology. Jung proposed and developed the concepts of extroversion and introversion; archetypes, and the collective unconscious. His work has been influential in psychiatry and in the study of religion, philosophy, archeology, anthropology, literature, and related fields.

Happy Monday my lovely followers!  I have been getting a lot of comments from people like "How do you know that.", "How did you gain this experience?", "I read about my sign and only some of it's right, but some of it's not", "I can read any of the signs and make it relatable to me".......

I am going to answer these for you, and protest the others....

What I know, anyone could know.  I do not have a special gift except being a very observant and intuitive person.   It all started in my basement in Duluth Minnesota when dial up internet was the only way to get to the net.  I would go on Yahoo to parooz around and there was always the astrology tab at the top.  One day I read what a Scorpio’s characteristics were and I was hooked.   Since I have loved astrology from a young age, I would always ask someone when their birthday was and then observe.  There are without doubt strong similarities between the people that I have studied with the same sun sign which is what made me a believer.  I am not an unintelligent person by any means, I got a 1390 on my SAT, and so I understand why people are hesitant to believe, but just hear me out.  I have read most books on Astrology, Linda Goodman being my favorite author, and have found a lot of them to be very fascinating.  I collect vintage astrology books which I always find to actually be my favorite.  I have made it a hobby and study of mine throughout the years which is why I know as much as I do.  

When you read about your Sun Sign and find some of it to false I will tell you this, I would dare to say that about 80 to 90 percent of what you read will be true.  Your Sun Sign is where you were on the planet when you drew your first breath when the Earth was in line with the Sun and a specific zone of the Karmic Wheel.  Some astrologers believe that if you were born on a cusp you are considered to be both Sun Signs.  I could not disagree more.  I am what you would consider a cusp baby.  I was born on November 19, 1987.  I am a Scorpio with a Sagittarius rising.  Do I have Sagittarian qualities?  Absolutely, I am very outspoken like a Sag but I am a Scorpio through and through.  Like I said…. 80 to 90%.  To really truly get the whole 100% you need to have your chart done, but if you were born when the Sun and Earth were in line with Gemini, you are going to have 80 to 90% Gemini traits.  Got it?

Here is a great analogy to understand this concept a little further.  Let’s say you walk into a bar and you have a Texan on your right and a New Yorker on your left.  Based on where they are from, how they are dressed, their accent, and mannerisms you would be able to tell which is which without much time at all.  The same applies to a person’s Sun Sign; if I walked into a bar and had a Leo on my left and a Taurus on my right I would be able to tell you which is which without much time either.  I have people say to me all the time, “Now you know my sign you think you have me all figured out.”  Not in the slightest, I just have a better idea.  When you understand someone’s Sun Sign you won’t feel bad when a Capricorn doesn’t squeal when you give them a gift, or learn to be patient with a fidgety Gemini, forgive a nit-picky Virgo, or a Sagittarian’s forwardness.  Knowledge is power, and after all isn’t life all about understanding as much as you can?

As far as those that say that they can read any about sign and relate it to any them… you must be reading the wrong books, or your chart has every planet in it (highly unlikely).  If you read my blog and you feel as though I am less than 80% correct about what I wrote, then by all means please continue to be a skeptic.  I just find that very hard to believe. I have been proven wrong more than once, however never in this particular subject.    

Here are some of my favorite quotes from famous people that love Astrology as much as I do…

"Astrology is a science in itself and contains an illuminating body of knowledge. It taught me many things and I am greatly indebted to it." – Albert Einstein

"Astrology is astronomy brought down to earth and applied toward the affairs of man." – Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Millionaires don't use astrology, billionaires do." – JP Morgan (First Billionaire)

(Said in defense of astrology, to skeptic Edmund Halley) “I have studied the matter. Your sir, have not.” – Sir Isaac Newton
