I can’t believe that I am writing this post… One thing you should know about me is that I’m totally a skeptic
(*ahem* full blown non-believer) when it comes to this zodiac/astrology stuff. I was low key raised to believe it was the devils work so that kinda really put me off it. And I also honestly have never paid attention to any of it because it always seemed so fake to me. I mean the stars are supposed to tell me about myself? Always sounded suspect. For example, I just found out am a “Cancer”, supposedly that means I’m a water sign ruled by the moon… You see what I’m talking about? What the f*ck does that even mean? ????…So today I scoured the internet (*ahem* read like one article on the Cosmopolitan website) to see what being a Cancer is all about and if it can accurately predict my personality…
So my birthday is June 24th and that means I am a Cancer (kinda unfair that I got the horrible sounding zodiac name so we’re just going to ignore that.) Apparently Cancers being of the water sign are meant to be moody and intense, with a lot of emotional depth. Except for the depth thing, I don’t know what having a water sign means? Am I supposed to have a strong affinity for water or something because let me tell you that is not the case. I have this weird fear of drowning (you know what, it’s not weird, being afraid of drowning is a completely rational fear)… One time a friend tried to push me into a pool and I legit she-hulk threw him over my shoulder. I get into large bodies of water on my terms and no one else’s!
Cancers are said to be emotionally volatile with moods that change as swiftly as the “waxing and the waning of the moon” (because Cancer is ruled by the moon). The accuracy of this statement is spooky. My emotions and my moods are all over the place on a regular day and lord bless the person that has to interact with me when I am on my period. You guys this irritates (and entertains) my boyfriend to no end. One minute I’m laughing and chatting, literally the next minute I’m staring out a window in complete silence… I kinda like my volatile emotions, I feel like I laugh, cry, get angry, forgive, easier and faster than most people (it feels like life with the volume turned up) and I love that about myself.
Ok it’s kinda spooky how on the spot some of these traits are. Cancers are supposed to be intuitive, loyal and sentimental… I think those traits are pretty spot on about me! I definitely have a strong sense of people (as in its so easy for me to be able to tell what someone is thinking or their mood), it’s definitely ride or die for me and my friends/family and I’ve become a low key hoarder because of how sentimental I get about things… One thing I keep coming across about Cancers though is that they’re supposed to be nurturing/maternal and that is the furthest thing from me, like I can barely get my own life together and I’m supposed to enjoy taking care of other people?! Ummm no.
All in all I’m pretty surprised at how accurately my zodiac was able to predict my personality. I’m probably never going buy into this whole thing but it definitely was fun exploring what was out there. Its such a massive world and I probably just barely scratched the surface with my “research”. But I can see why people are so intrigued by it all. We’re all just trying to find meaning in this senseless world…
