I Don't Even Know Who I Am Anymore

First, I just want to say that I know that God made me who I am and if that changes over the course of my lifetime, that's fine because that's pretty much out of my control. And I know that I am the way that I am because of the amazing parents that I have and the wonderful sister that I have and the incredible people that I've been surrounded by throughout my life. So, any great things that is found in me is only because God placed them in my life.

And, I know zodiac signs are probably a load of cow poo so let's just all keep that in mind as we read what I've written below.


This new zodiac sign is rocking my world. I've lived the large majority of my life (the majority in which I actually knew what a zodiac sign was) thinking I'm a Leo. In fact, the characteristics of a Leo are pretty spot on for me.

For instance:
- passionate
- kind-hearted, generous, sympathetic and magnetic
- emotional (nail on the head), very intuitive
- fine conversationalists, excelling in repartee, the best of storytellers (maybe pushing it here)
- always make a point and always see the point
- a most powerful people for good, with a marked ability to inspire others (Tim Tebow is a Leo, no doubt)
- have the most remarkable power in molding public opinion, and in swaying great audience (again Tim Tebow, not so much me)
- protective of their own (very much me)
- must be right all the time (I'm working on this). Argument is of no use under such conditions. In fact, it is well to let the Leo enjoy his opinions without interference.
- would rather plan than work, and by no means are fond of details
- sometimes very lazy (sometimes?) and are fond of basking in the sun and dozing in the chimney corner (yes, please).

So, yesterday, with this lost sign coming to the forefront, I'm being told I'm a Cancer. Let's see what that's all about.

- It's a water sign, so if that means that Cancers like water, then okay, you got me there.
- persistant will, a clutch of determination, intuition and purpose
- invincible to argument, and cannot be talked out of a thing; but if their feelings are hurt, they are apt to lose heart and abandon whatever they have undertaken. (this is pretty spot on)
- strong as giants and weak as infants; fond of travel, often taking long voyages, which are not always successful.
- have a very superior intelligence, and an aptitude for learning new things and working out new principles.
- generous and full of sympathy for the public good, but demand a full independence to develop the same.
- unpredictable and frequently change their occupation (wow, hello there Katie)
- apt to change companions and friends very frequently, often becoming bitter enemies of those to whom they were previously attached.
- tactful to diplomacy in some matters, and show their hands with painful clearness in others.
- Their powers of understanding are very quick and keen
- excellent memories (very much me)
- fine public speakers
- fond of money
- the male is apt to become miserly, the female covetous and ambitious to get and hoard
- afraid and ashamed of poverty
- mechanical mind, the women are intellectual and often very logical writers and speakers, remarkably progessive in their ideas, and frequently found among the prime movers in great humane enterprises.
- very apt to be comfortable, happy and unassailable during the day but very unhappy and depressed at night (I'm the complete opposite)
- conscientious about giving advice and like to be consulted in important matters
- fond of the beautiful and artistic
- like to dress fancy
- neat and orderly and expect others to be the same

I've got to say, some of the characteristics of both hit the nail on the head and some, well, just aren't me.

So, I've got to ask the people who know me, what do you think? Am I a Leo? Am I a Cancer? Is this all a load of crap?

Let me know what you think. And did your sign change? Are you having an identity crisis? Is this the beginning of the end?? Can you sense my sarcasm???

  1. If you study carefully the signs you'll find things that are characteristics of everyone. Maybe only a few but some that anyonoe can identify with, therefore everyone can be any one of the signs. My sign is chesse cake. I choose it just because i could. I'm thinking of changing it to pen because it is mighter than the sword. It's a toss up between pen and viagra. I think your sign is chocolate.
