While I don’t take astrology too seriously, I love reading horoscopes and personality profiles based on star signs, birthdays, and all. And if you want to be a creepy stalker, find me in the New Age section at a bookstore, because I tend to spend a lot of time there just reading up on all of it. Everything I’ve taken in about my sign suits me so well, and I think in some weird way that I don’t want to believe but feel compelled to do, the way the stars are aligned is one reason why I’m so much like my mom, since our late August birthdays are only three days apart (By the way, considering who else was born that entire week, I’m seriously starstruck by the awesome roster of folks I’m [almost] birthday twins with, but that’s another rambling for another day!).
I took a gander into the links in Liz’s post and flipped to my star sign, Virgo. Gotta say that the future is looking pretty snazzy for us Virgins…
VIRGO: Aug. 23 – Sept. 22
So many Billionaires Club members are Virgos, so why do you feel so left out? You’re still paying dues, at least until October. Fortunately, Jupiter blows the lid off your career expectations. You really can’t aim too high in 2012.
Celebrity Stars: Salma Hayek, Pippa Middleton, Coco Rocha, Cameron Diaz, Blake Lively, Michelle Williams
Love & Life: Cue the montage: big screen-worthy scenes of you exploring closeness with a new co-star. To your surprise, you don’t mind a few romantic clichés. And by fall you may enter negotiations to work a child into the scenario. On other fronts, an interesting cast of characters will enrich the plot. November marks a turning point.
Work & Money: Job opportunities are like buses in 2012: Miss one and along comes another very soon. Saturn takes the brakes off your earning power in October. Just be wary of an offer late June that sounds too good to be true. All year long it’s best to steer the safe financial route—it’s the surest path to your dreams.
Mantra: I can enjoy rewarding diversions, as long as I keep the GPS tuned to the final destination.
I can dig it, but a child? I hope I can replace that with a dog or cat instead.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Expect big changes as you step into 2012. (Visualize a giant vitamin B12 shot.) Suddenly, you are confident and aggressive and fighting for your rights. Others might be shocked by your boldness, but something will occur in your life to boost your confidence and cause this sudden change in your personality. Many of you will be physically active, especially in sports. You’ll be more aggressive in your communications with others, especially partners and close friends. In all of your encounters with others, you are competitive and want to win—in fact, you’ll try to dominate every situation. If attacked, you won’t hesitate to fight back, which might surprise you— accept this and use it to your advantage. The reason you’re so turned on by life is that you know you can show the world what you can do.
Your mantra: “Finally, it’s my turn to go after what I want.”

Yup. So is me.
So…uh…hey baby, what’s YOUR sign?
