In the Stars?

Today is my mom's 60th birthday (happy birthday, Mom!). Yesterday was a friend's 28th birthday and tomorrow is another friend's 32nd birthday. Is it the universe conspiring to keep my credit card active so I earn more Thank You points? Or is it that I'm drawn to people at the tail-end of Pisces? Is there something this stubborn goat sees in the (mostly) easy-going nature of these people that makes me want to call them friends?

Do we seek out other Sun signs we get along with or do we notice these similarities later in the relationship? In high school, there most have been something about Libras because I was friends with more than a few. In college, late November birthdays were the rule. I usually make it a point to find out sun signs, but after reading several astrology books in high school I can usually guess the sun signs of most people pretty accurately. For example, I know Geminis and I don't usually mix well, but I typically feel at home in the presence of a Cancer. Again, is that because my Dad happens to be a Cancer or because Cancers are typically the keepers of the hearth and generally create an aura of belonging around them?

While I agree most of the daily horoscopes are written so generically that anyone who is so inclined can find meaning in them, I do think there is something about the stars and planets that signifies behavior. Also, if you have ever had a complete reading done on your date and time of birth as well as location, you know there is much more to astrology than just the sun sign. There are ascending and descending signs, different houses and scores of other factors. It's interesting to delve in at the more advanced level. My official horoscope says I am bound for great things after the age of 30. Since I am feeling a little lost career wise, I am hoping these great things soon come to pass. Or again, will I make great things happen because I think I am supposed to according to my horoscope? It's a cyclical web, but in the meantime, I'm going to pull out that official reading and see if there are any clues in there for where my greatness lies.

But before that, I am going to have a yummy dinner and fabulous night with the most important Pisces, Cancer, Aquarius and Virgo in my life.
