Do I believe the cosmic array on the day of your birth translates to a personality type? Probably not.
Maybe somehow the pull and tug of the planets does something to wack out your brain. Maybe mothers become seasonally depressed in the winter and it affects their hormones which affects their baby. I deem that plausible, so hey, why not.
Do I feel I embody my zodiac? Let’s take a few excerpts from popular astrological sources and compare.
Aries is a bundle of energy and dynamism, kind of like a Pied Piper, leading people along with its charm and charisma.
These folks are bold, aggressive and courageous. They can summon up the inner strength required to take on most anyone, and they'll probably win. Aries do not lack energy or vitality, and they can stay in the game longer than most anyone else. Now that's a winning edge
Or another top ranking astrology website
Strengths: Courageous, determined, confident, enthusiastic, optimistic, honest, passionate
Weaknesses: Impatient, moody, short-tempered, impulsive, aggressive
"Their circle of friends needs a wide range of strange individuals, mostly in order for them to feel like they have enough different views on personal matters they don't know how to resolve"
Or hell, how about Wikipedia? I trust it for everything else.
"People under the Aries sign are believed to be like a child who is frank, enthusiastic, fierce, a bit hotheaded and too loyal to their friends. Since Aries is the first astrological sign in spring during which everything comes to life, the Arians are believed to be always vigorous and passionate"
Okay, I feel like most of those apply. Let's go for some disreputable sources like Thought Catalog: Here's some choices from Thought Catalog Based on Your Zodiac Listings.
As a Girlfriend:
"They have a tough exterior and a bad temper but once you do get to know them you’ll see they are sensitive. They come across cold AF and have an acid tongue. So when you fight not only will you lose but they will probably say something that hurts."
Zing. Not to say that's probably not true.
As An Ex:
"When an Aries leaves you, they just do not even care. Do not eff with an Aries heart because they will just be like “alright, peace” and that will pretty much be the end of it. Aries intellectualize life, and so when it occurs to them that you are incompatible or that your relationship isn’t headed anywhere, staying together seems like an illogical thing to do, and if it is an illogical thing to do, why would you sit around and worry about it?"
Apparently the most chill of exes (I think someone forgot all the rage, but a lot of this too)
How We Do Show Love Sometimes:
They compliment you.
When an Aries really loves you, it’s in no small part because they are inspired by you. They think you’re smart, they think you’re interesting, they value your perspective on life. Generally, Aries think that they are the smartest people that they know (or the wisest, or coolest, or most talented) and it’s not because they are vain, it’s because they have evidence to back that belief up.
How I Would Behave on a Desert Island:
With your laid back attitude and your positivism, not even landing on a lost island with zero phone signal and no population scares you. You inspect everything curiously before considering planning a way out.
And Finally The Zodiac Traits from the Zodiac Killer:
"You are wild and full of energy. You are quick-witted, and that is what makes you fun. People love your excitable spirit. You are not an easy one to corner and that makes the hunt so much more exciting."
So what do I think I'm like? Hot-headed, stubborn, cocky. I think I am the best at everything because that's what people tell me, and like a damn fool I've come to believe it. Energy, charisma? You betcha. My worst qualities are a bad temper and assuming everyone operates on the same "Live and Let Die" attitude I do. Most people aren't impervious. They're sensitive. They have anxieties and doubts about themselves and who they are and what they're doing. And I have not really any idea how that feels. Which makes me cold and unsympathetic on my bad days. But skirting the tricky moments, I burn like fire attracting everyone to the flames.(Once again, direct quotes I've received from others.)
So in short, yes. I am such an Aries.
