fun with astrology

My friend sent me this link yesterday. 

You enter your birth date, time and location to get your detailed horoscope. It will look something like mine, above! I'm a Leo - hi! it's nice to meet you. 

Then you can click here to learn how to read it. 

Personally, I found the planets and the house cusps to be the most interesting. I especially thought my ascendent was pretty spot on. 

Sagittarius rising produces a personality that is restless, outgoing, and very independent. This Ascendant is one that produces goal oriented individuals; people with a long-range outlook and philosophical attitude. Your ambitions are geared to those long-range and large-scale goals. Simultaneously, you are apt to have a positive and optimistic outlook. You feel matters will turn out okay, no matter how large the challenge may be.

You have strong urges to cover vast distances, both physically and mentally. Usually, everything does turn out well for you. Your "Ruling" planet is Jupiter, the "great benefic." Jupiter is considered the luckiest planet in the zodiac. It produces a personality characterized by humor and a happy-go-lucky disposition. You have a need to experience life fully in a variety of ways. Open and friendly, you are usually cheerful, interested, and jovial.

One difficulty that you may have from time to time is that you to take everything and everyone for granted. You don't like dealing with pessimistic or emotional people, and you don't want the burden of dealing with their problems. You don't even like dealing with your own problems, often ignoring them with an attitude that if you don't acknowledge these situations, they will go away. There may be a fear of disappointment in your makeup that can prevent you from seeing your path to success clearly.

Although you are an excellent abstract thinker, you are also very much an outdoor person. You love nature. In this vein, you are a very spiritual person who can tune in to the higher forces in life simply by taking a walk in the woods.

You are a very direct person. Your speech can be blunt and to the point, often lacking in tact and diplomacy. Your reasoning powers are superb. To be fulfilled, you need a constant challenge and goal. If these two factors are combined in effective ways in your life, you may do much. This sign enjoys the good fortune of having thought patterns that remain young and fresh throughout life. Your outlook won't become jaded by time or turmoil

So, I'm basically an optimistic asshole who likes the outdoors? 
I'll take it! 

Anyway, if you're curious, interested, or appalled even, try it out!  But beware: 

This site has serious productivity killing properties. It was born in the west and resides in the east and is capable of derailing entire afternoons, not unlike it's distant relative in the house of the rising sun, reality tv. 



  1. Sun Sign: LEO
    Ascendant: LEO

    I just read both... I had to laugh out loud because it sounded so like me.

    I love this shit. I don't care what haters say.. this shit is true.

    And Leo's are the best. Just sayin...

  2. I love your assessment of it. An optimistic asshole who likes the outdoors. Don't you wish horoscopes would just say that? I mean at least it would be good for a laugh! Going to check out mine!

  3. I see quite the mix of Fire and Air in your chart. Does this sound at all like you?:
    As full of ideas and enthusiasm as you are, energies may be scattered, and you must realize that you can't just pour out your energies unreservedly without simultaneously tuning in on your deeper resources if you're to avoid a state of constant depletion.


  4. the fact that you could figure that shit out blows my mind. im a leo so im going to go with i'm optimistic asshole who likes the outdoors as well.
