Today i had another “huh?” experience.
What do you mean what’s a “huh?” experience??? You know, when you catch yourself doing or thinking things that the conscious you wouldn’t. And i am not referring to the things done or said after you had a little bit more to drink…
Today i met a very interesting person at work. He came at the university (yeah, i work in a university…) in order to give a speech to the students in a seminar. My first impression of him was surprisingly good. I saw a young man smiling, not just politely, but honestly, with messy hair -in a away-, wearing a suit, a blue tie and a pair of colorful snickers! He shook my hand in a confident and friendly way and called me with my small name. Moreover his speech and presentation was interesting, full, detailed but not tiring. He engaged with students asking them questions about almost anything, making jokes. Everyone loved him.
When the seminar ended and everything that needed to be done was through, guess what, i googled him.
But that’s not the “huh?” experience, i always google people. After i read his resume, found out about his hobbies -here it comes- i caught myself looking for his zodiac sign…… I didn’t have time to actually find it cause i realized what i was doing and felt like i gave myself a slap at the back of my head….
I don’t know what you think about the zodiac cycle, but now we are talking about me! 😛
The truth is that i tend to ask people i meet their zodiac signs and usually the phrase that comes after that question is “not that i really believe in zodiac signs…” And the truth is that the only information i get of that question is not the other person’s characteristics according to astrology. I just get to thinking if i know any other Sagittarius -for example. (I don’t by the way!)
Does my zodiac sign ACTUALLY reflects who i am???
=> I am not looking for a scientific answer here about atoms being pulled close due to magnetic fields and water and gravity and apples falling from trees. (i would search google scholar for that)
=> Nor am i looking for an astrological answer about how our rising sign characterises us after our 30s and our exact time of birth and where was Mars when we lost our first tooth.
In a nutshell, i didn’t wanna read scientific articles. So (inevitably) i started googling again… You know, silly staff, what zodiacs say after sex, what is their favourite food, what pisses them off….. and how to attract each one of them. And here comes trouble.
I went straight to Taurus. That’s me. (no comments please, i ‘ve read a dozen of irritating stuff about bulls, it’s nerve-racking…) 4 bullets. In a few words:
- A taurus hates moving, stability above all (The article said: “I am living in this house for the last 15 years, i hate moving”).
- Good food lover (“My one grandmother is from Turkey and the other from Crete so i cook since i was a little girl”)
- Touch a taurus in the back of his head, it’s his melting point.
- Taurus is all about his belongings, consequently he respects money a little more….
- He is loyal.
I am ashamed to say all 5 of them were so true…. How can this silly article hit bull’s-eye? (literally!) Is the moon and all the other planets influencing me that much? My mom and dad didn’t contribute at all to who i am? Ok, now i think this post is begging to scare me….!!!
The scholar in me (he is well berried most of the time) makes me wonder if there has been any scientific research on the matter. Come to think of it, for my wondering spirit’s disappointment, all these thoughts i am having must be due to tonight’s full moon… Or maybe Mercury is retrograde again… (i ‘ll google that later)
I guess i ‘ll stop troubling my head and go have a snack (as a real Taurus). I hope you belong to the proud group that says “Aries may be unfaithful, but i am not!” Go on and prove the universe wrong! It gives a strange satisfaction and power.
I still try hard to let go of my precious belongings (yes, the Gollum in the Lord of the Rings must have been a Taurus) and make moving easier, but i always end up crying in an empty house and kiss the walls goodbye (hm, and actually moving in the apartment next door to my old one…).
Pathetic…. i know!
What irritates you most about your zodiac sign?
