Working on Caroline's 1-year scrapbooking page was an unusual challange because her picture is so gosh-dang pretty I wanted to do something special, but being 3rd in scrapbooking line (ok, 5th, I scrapped Joe and I a decent amount before we had kids), I often feel that "special" has already been taken. I'm out of new ideas. So I browsed a scrapbooking idea file (thanks, Debbie!) and came up with adding their horoscope of character traits - so fun! She's a Saggitarius, and so are Joe and I, so I was curious how "on" the description was for us, and how "on" it might be for her. I about fell out of my chair when I read it. I'm not into daily horoscopes or 5-star days or anything, and I know you can make generalized statements that people from all backgrounds might attribute to themselves, but seriously - this was so awesome! Here is the description, in its entirety, and I italicized things I feel are SO RIGHT about us.
Sagittarius is usually
the soul of the company. The reason people are attracted to them is their
inborn ability is to act in a very relaxed and honest manner. Sagittarians are
tolerant and open-minded, they will never judge someone just by physical appearance
and they tend to accept environment without any preconceptions.
other people easily but he/she expects the same trust in return. When they
communicate with other people Sagittarius people are usually open and
forthright, so you just know that such people won’t talk behind your back (one of my HUGE pet peeves!). This
quality makes them very reliable companions, beloved friends and family
members. In addition, they are never selfish or proud, so their generosity is
usually something to be admired.
One of the most
positive qualities of Sagittarius is a great sense of humor (I think so, at least). Such people are
not likely to cry alone at night because someone said something bad about them.
(This is true about Joe but not about me! I'm a sensitive soul). The Archer accepts everything with a smirk upon the face and they don’t take
themselves too seriously as well.
natural-born optimists; they believe that nothing can bring them down. This
ability not to be stressed by every little trouble allows them to go further no
matter what. Their energy always saves them from misery because by the time
they realize they failed, there is already a new adventure planned. (I laughed out loud, this is so true!)
believe in deceit and they trust people dearly, they are rarely ever suspicious
of anyone (almost to a fault). They also expect others to trust them in return. Such people think
well of other people, as they think well of themselves too.
They have very high
standards, always aiming for more than it is possible to achieve, and this
quality makes them respectable in the eyes of society. All in all, Sagittarius
is the most enthusiastic, positive and energetic of all Zodiac signs. (Go Saggitarius!! [See? There's that enthusiasm again]).
Personality Traits of Sagittarius
carelessness, impulsiveness, forgetfulness, tactlessness
ME TO A TEE.
Many Sagittarians have
problems with controlling their egos. They are used to thinking they have all
the right answers and sometimes other people are put off by such attitude. Much
like other Fire signs, Sagittarius has own set of rules and doesn’t like to be
told they are wrong. *Amen*
They prefer to be
always in control of the situation and people. However, no everyone likes to be
controlled so there are situations where Sagittarius can be considered to be
obnoxious and egoistic.
They also often expect
full recognition for every accomplishment. Like a true fire sign, Sagittarius
is quick to get angry and their energy can transform from positive to negative
in a heartbeat. Those people can be very insulting when they don’t think before
speaking their mind, which is exactly what happens to them most of the time.
In many cases
Sagittarians simply don’t consider the effect their words can have on other
people. Sometimes, their lack of tact and dark sense of humor goes too far and
other people can be offended.
Because they are so
restless and impulsive, sometimes their energy is wasted which leads to
temporary cases of depression. This happens when the Archer (the Saggitatius person) doesn’t focus the
stream of energy into one direction. They can also be quite irresponsible
because they want to do everything at the same time. Consequently, some
projects are left unfinished.
Sagittarians are quick
to come up with ideas but they have no patience and concentration to complete
them. Such behavior can irritate other people, especially when Sagittarius is
irresponsible in the work-place. When their work doesn’t bring them enough
satisfaction, they can become inconsiderate and even tensed.
Sagittarius tends to
take risks without thinking it through. As a result, sometimes those risks turn
out to be foolish. Their inability to handle finances is can also be considered
as a flaw, especially in a marriage. Sagittarius is also a sign known for
passion for adventures and risks, so many of them indulge in gambling, leading
to dangerous lifestyle (thank goodness we don't gamble!).
