    Do you believe that star signs can actually determine what your traits and characteristics are? or do you think that it's just a load of rubbish?

    I found a site where you have to put in your birthday, and even time of birth, and it then gives you a very in depth description of yourself. I found that the vast majority was spot on. A few parts were false though, well i hope they were because it said i would cheat on my wife (sorry, love).

    Do you think that the only reason people think the star signs apply to them is because you subconsiously want to believe that it's correct?

    Hmm.

    I don't see how a star sign COULD determine traits. I don't believe in them at all.

    I find them largely accurate but you have to combine western with chinese, and look at your risings, and time of birth, and so on to get a proper detailed description.

    I find the daily horoscopes a load of tosh though.

    i don't understand the risings and things. :confused:

    if it says nice things i tend to take it in, if it don't i kind of skip it because it must be lying.

    I personally don't believe it at all

    What's the website? :P:

    Well, if I read my star sign and it said something good was going to happen of course I would hope that it came true - and it's not like the paper would say a tonnes of bad things were going to happen would they?

    but then different places say different thing for which each star sign means

    I definitely identified with the character traits associated with Virgos, however I don't think daily horoscopes are accurate at all.

    haha googled taurus and got this:
    "Key characteristic: Determination
    Strengths: Hard-working, honest, brave
    Challenges: Intractable, short-sighted, bullying"

    Well I am determined, hard-working, honest - maybe not too brave :P:
    I am short-sighted
    But bullying?? - seems a bit random

    Hm, i dunno - i don't really see how what time of year your parents decide to have sex without a condom determines your characteristics - and i find a lot of the "horoscopes" etc related to star signs are realllllly general and could mean "almost anything" - however i do know someone who is quite into star signs and is quite convincing at relating peoples characteristics and personality traits to their star sign...but :hmmmm: not convinced
