What’s Your Zodiac Sign?!

June 25, 2013

Cancer sign

Saturday was the start of CANCER SEASON!!!!!!!! June 22 – July 22 in this beeyotch!!!

With the start of spring also comes the start of the 4th sign of the zodiac – Cancer. While I don’t particularly subscribe to astrology or horoscopes, it is painfully obvious how much of a Cancer sign I truly am.

Cancer is ruled by the Moon and is a water sign. Cancerians are said to be very sensitive, emotional and moody. Yes, yes, and yes lol. Anytime I have a dramatic or emotional melt down on Twitter (which is often, as those of you who follow me can attest to), my fellow Cancerian Miss T-Lee always reminds me that I’m on my #Cancer ish LOL. I have crazy mood swings and I’m the type of person that cries at the same scene in a movie I’ve seen a 1,000 times – because each time is just as gut wrenching as the first time I saw it. I also cry at really touching commercials and have even teared up while watching shows like Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Yeah, don’t judge me.

Something I read earlier today on Cancerians:

“They are complex, fragile, unpredictable and temperamental and need constant support and encouragement, more then any other astrology signs, Cancer needs to be needed. Even when all needs are satisfied, they can be irritable and cranky. They have an uneasy, delicate temperament. The contradictory nature of Cancer gives their temperament the wild mood swings and possible temper tantrums.”

Yeeeaaaaaah pretty much lol. I sometimes hate that I can be so temperamental and moody, because I see the effect it has on the people who are on the receiving end, but most of the time I can’t help it. Sometimes I try to isolate myself so that I don’t drag anyone into my angry tornado of emotions, but sometimes the emotion hits me out of nowhere and I don’t even have time to prepare. So basically I’m sorry that I’m such a difficult emotional person!! It’s not my fault, it’s my sign LOL.

Other fun facts about Cancerians:

  • Element: Water – I love the water! I love swimming, being in the water, by the water, hell I love to drink water! Plus, my alias is “Gem of the Ocean” – doesn’t get more watery than that lol.
  • Metal: Silver – Silver is definitely my favorite metal and most of my jewelry is silver. I also like white gold because it’s silvery lol. 
  • Stone: Pearl, Opal – My name means pearl. Some of my favorite pieces of jewelry have pearls. And pearls come from the watery ocean. Do you see all the connections?!
  • Color: White, Yellow – I look great in white, I hate the color yellow. 

On my compatibility with Libra (habibi’s sign):

“When the Libra and Cancer follow up a romantic relationship, they make a appealing but difficult combination of Air and Water. As the Cancer is very supportive and sensitive and Libra is very romantic and logical, they compliment each other well. Both of them love harmony and work hard to achieve it in their relationship… Once they are actually together, they cherish their relationship in one way or the other for rest of their lives.”

Sounds about right 😉

As I said before, I don’t really subscribe to living my life by my horoscope, but it’s fun to see how much my personality traits align with those describes by my astrological sign. I have an astrology book on birthdays at my parents house. One of these days I’m going to remember to bring it back with me so I can read some of yall and learn you something lol.

What is your zodiac sign? Does your zodiac sign accurately describe you? Do you follow astrology or keep up with your horoscope?

Cancers unite!

    I’m a Gemini. When everyone asks my sign and get that answer they just nod as if to say “makes sense, you psycho”. I don’t give signs much power so I don’t follow them. (I actually muted all social talk from my Twitter timeline.)

    i’m a libra. i don’t live my life at all by my zodiac signs or anything like that. i’m with wu. if i could mute twittscopes on my app i would. i do think that a lot of libra traits fit me though. libra traits that i think fit me are i’m neat, i dress for the occasion, i’m bossy at times and i pay attention to detail. i also love beauty, mingling and intellectual conversations.

    interesting about that cancer/libra compatibility. 😉

      haha yeah those few characteristics sound like you.

      i dont pay any attention to zodiac compatibility but when i googled it for the blog it was surprising to see how “compatible” the signs say we are 🙂

    I’m supposedly a Cancer. I have used the Zodiac to excuse my behavior and as ammunition to holler at women. I’m not particularly emotional, Grey/Silver is my favorite color, but that may be the result of my Cowboys stannery. #InRomoWeTrust

    Birthday Twin!!! This post describes me so well, I thought I wrote it. (Lol)

    I’m not much into horoscopes and only as a teen-young adult I’d pay attention to all the symbolisms/details that describes a Cancer; impressed by how well books or websites pinpointed my love for home, nurturing others and pity parties. Sometimes I feel like a real crab, needing to retreat from all and feel the water on my skin. Even with my all moodiness (which I blame on my closeness to Gemini), I love being a Cancer. It fits me.

    You’ve been writing often and so many great posts; I’m loving it! 🙂

      LOL #twinsies!

      glad im not the only one who is like this lol. while i dont live by or follow astrology, i do think its interesting how well my “sign” describes me. and ive really come to embrace the things that make me me (much of which are considered “Cancerian” traits).

      thanks for the support on the posts! just trying to challenge my writing haha

    Awwww. Thanks for the shout out Gemmie. I’m born on gemini/cancer cusp, 1st day of cancer. Technically a cancer, however Pops keeps trying to convince me that I’m a gemini…lol
    I can’t say that I put too much into the zodiacs, even #doe I do have the cancer symbol (the one behind the crab pic up top, tattooed on my ankle…lol) Some of the personality traits, I definitely identify with. Actually, too many. However, not sure how much I put into the relationship part of it. Considering some of my best relationships were with people I’m supposedly not compatible with, and mr. off again is supposedly my best match, ever in life (Scorpio). Go figure. 🙂
    I have a few pearl pieces, but you know our other gemstone is Alexandrite, which happens to be my favorite color as well. Looking to add a few pieces of that to my collection one day.
