Bloggity Summer Camp: What's Your Sign?

Hey Humble Readers...

How's your summer so far?  Has it been too hot?  Too rainy?  Too mosquito-y?  Mine's been a little bit of all of those things, but now I'm in my hometown, visiting with my Mom, Dad and all the family, so things are great, no matter what the weather. 

Today at Bloggity Summer Camp, Camp Director Calliope has asked us... "How do you feel about astrology? What’s your sign, baby, and do you think it matches your personality?" 

I'm not a big believer in astrology.  I know I'm a Virgo, and I know that Virgos are supposed to be perfectionists/anal retentive.  I guess that describes me a bit. 

But to my mind, there are traits from all the signs that could apply to me.  I don't think that the day on which I was born determines who I am and how I will respond to events in my life.  It just seems so arbitruary.

And horoscopes?  I think they're pretty generalized to cover a multitude of possibilities. 

Funny story... my bio-mom was always a big believer in astrology.  She had a particular favourite author whose annual horoscope book she would buy.  It sat on her nightstand, and she wouldn't get out of bed in the morning without having first reading her daily tidbit. 

I dunno, it just always struck me as silly.

Hobbits are social creatures, and love hearing from friends old and new. Pull up a comfy chair and let's get to know one another.
