I just got a mail stating the supposed characteristics and attributes of people as related to their Zodiac sign! I haven't classified myself as a guy who really beleives in the Zodiac, but at the same time, I read it as well. I generally read the daily fortune presented in "Bangalore Times" and keep track of it weekly and I also read mails such as the one I received today. I think it's more to do with the concept of finding the "true me" that keeps me reading, as I think I can get all the help I can get. Now, I seriously wonder, where the person who mailed me this got the data, as the language used by the person is horrible in terms of grammar and punctutation. One of the things that I find hard to beleive is that these Zodiac predictors don't have a formal guideline as to when are the bounds of the Zodiac signs. For e.g. consider my date of birth - the 22nd of May. According to some of these guys, I am a cusp, being born on the 22nd - a cusp b/w Taurus and Gemini. According to some, I am a true Gemini - as they beleive that Gemini starts on the 20th of May.
So, I read both the Taurean and Geminian descriptions and choose the best for myself ;-)! Whoever said that written stuff can't boost your ego or improve your morale. It generally does and can also do the reverse as well. Hehe. Anyhoo, thought I'd post the descriptions of a Taurean and a Gemini according to the guy who made this up. I think a Taurean pretty much summarizes me, but there are attributes of Gemini, which are completely true as well. Here are the descriptions of a Taurean and a Gemini that I got. :-)!
A quiet simple man who can do something unexpected to shock you. Taurus man mostly medium tall, strong with good health, good strong body. When he talks, he likes to turn his head to one side on one direction. His body will be quite straight, facial structure tends to be square shape more than other shape. His eyes sparkle with liveliness. Even when he is in love, he is still a free wild bird. He is sand in your palm, the more you want to hold it, and it will slip out. If you stand and hold it still, it will stay that way. Don't set the rules and draw a line for him, he will not stay. When you are with him, he will think only of you. But an hour later he could change his mind. He is very patient with other people, but very impatient with himself. His world always turning and it will not stop just because he loves you. If he up sets, he will show it right away. If something has gone wrong, he will blame his own carelessness instead of blaming other people. He sincere to his friends even to some friends he does not like. He likes to do odd things and surprise other people. He could be fully dress in a nice suit and jump in the pool. He could slap your back so hard just to make you turn around to see he has flowers in his hand. He never wanton gets too close with anyone for he thinks living in reality is living by you. He does not care what people think when he behaves weird. He could be walking bare feet and laughing at people who laugh at him and think they are so narrow minded. He does not likes to follow conformity, but always want to search for new ventures, new mystery. He will interest in alive of a millionaire as much as a life of an old man selling newspaper on a sidewalk vendor. He likes to search and analyze people and things. He will analyze his friends or his girl friend, and once the mystery is gone, he will search for new puzzle to solve. He can not easily understand thing, so he will gradually learning about you till he fills up all his questions. He knows so many people ,but he has a few friends. He looks for quality friends than quantity friends. He will be close with some friends shortly and move on. He always feel lonely even surround by many people. He could create his own little world, and sometimes no one would understand him. He looks only for future and he thinks he lives for the future. He may wonder how many people think like he does, but he does not want to be like the others.
A man with a conflict personality. He is a cool, understanding, and able to work well, and very artistic. Taurus man could be an artist. He could shock you as much as he is able to clam you down when you up set. He is a free spirit who likes venture, but when he wants to be alone, do not touch him but to let him be. He won't disappear from the crowds too long, he will be back. He will give you straight forward opinion or comments, but will never advice what he thinks you should do. He does not like people to tell him what he should do too. He thinks each individual dreams and thoughts should be very private. He will use his brain not his body strength, so he will let other guys compete. He has a certain satisfactory in life and hate to force him in competition. He may seem careless, but actually he is a thinker and a stubborn one. He sees anything's in details and not easily trusted people till he thinks he knows them well. You can just smile and he will think why and what are you smiling about, and if you are pretending. Once he trust you and accept you as a friend, no one can say other wise to change that for he will not listen to gossip. He will be honest and sincere to his friends. He hates lies, so he will not tell you lie. If he finds it is necessary to lie, he will find other ways not to tell you or avoid telling you anything. If he really has to lie, you will never be able to tell that he is lying. He can really keep secrets, so you will hardly know that he is a lonely soul. If you want this kind of guy, you have to be an interesting person. He has to be curious about you. Hell for him is "No Freedom", so if he marries you then you should know it is the biggest decision in his life. Always be interesting, then you could have him beside you.
Hmmm... That's a Taurean me for you. However, my observations - I am generally wild, active, talkative. Let's not talk about the quasi gregarian thing me. I don't think that is true. At least I am not ready to accept that is true as of now :-P! Well, now for the Geminian me
A man in this Zodiac has a thin long and proportional face. He has high forehead and very cleaver. He looks like he can not stand or sit still, a very fast person. His nose is just right in size, thin lips, talk fast and very talkative. He can think faster than he talks, but once he starts talking, he will talk non stop as if god has gifted him with that special talk machine mouth. He likes to cut his hair short and he is very athletic.
He is a tall, slim and every movement of his is "Fast" or nearly calls "Hyperactive". He has a long fingers and always tapping on table or moving his fingers if he is trying to grab something. He is the type who will write or scribble on paper, he never stays still. His hair always well comb or neat. He will spend a long time to comb his hair. He will keep his manicure and pedicure clean.
He is a well dress and clean guy, so if you like cleanliness, you will love him.
He will keep all his cloth in big closet, and never throw away even shirts he never wear any more, but yet he still keep buying new cloths and make sure he is in style.
He knows how to dress well even with a low budget. He gets bored easily with his favorite cloths , cologne. He is very picky, so soap and his cologne even have to been the same trend or same scent. If you date this kind of guy, you might think you are dating 2 guys, you will have to guess his feeling and emotion. Is he doing thing because it is a duty, or is it because he wants to? He change his mind as fast ashen change a new pairs of shoes. He can pick up a book and roughly read through and understand its contents, so if you see a Gemini man who reads the whole book, then he must be influenced by other Zodiac. He hates to set fix schedule, and dislike a boring same routine job. He could hardly be on time, and can only keep time if it is complete important and necessary. He does not come late because he forgets, but because he always fined other attractions along the way. He likes toast opposite to what he wants to do. He is a very good speaker and make Avery good politician. He can easily persuade other people and well presented himself in public, a real charmer. If he is a writer, he will write the best seller. He always searches for truth and constantly studies himself. He never satisfies about his fame, his reputation or money, because he thinks he deserved more. He will keep searching even he is not sure what is his ultimate satisfaction. Woman in love normally wants to feel secure and stable, but if you fall in love with this guy be preparing to be alone. His will comet sees you when he feels like it. He won't even know how he spent his day's everyday, so adjust yourself if you love him. Dating him is like dating 2 guys, so today he can tell you how much he loves you, but tomorrow he might call you to cancel your date. When he upsets, he could tell you he hates your dress, even it is the same dress he used to tell you make you look very sexy. Do not ask him why he is that's way for he won't have any explanations too. When he is back to normal mood, he will take you out again and forget what just happened. You can not expect him to be the same person now, and forever. His changes will depend on you, for better or for worst. If you like to take risk and dare for challenges, you will get along with him fine. He keeps his emotional secretly as if hiding it, so you will not be able to see if he crazy in love with you, or does not give a damn at all, but be calm and patient. He will never leave you if he thinks you are a puzzle, thence will spent times solving this puzzle.
There are tons of grammatical mistakes and some of the analogies like "sand in your palm" are downright weird. But, well, someone wrote it and I have posted it. :-D! Have some good snaps that I have uploaded to Flickr. Shall work on making some album sets and posting the link here :-)!
