I’m an Aries, kinda


I had a regular customer at my store that was so into astrology, I mean, like SUPER into it. He wanted to give every barista a star chart. I don’t actually know the exact time of my birth, so I kind of just gave him a time I think is close, so my chart probably isn’t as exact as he’d like it to be, but man, ain’t no body got time to order a long form birth certificate just to get a 100% correct star chart. I’ll make my own destiny thank you very much. Although, I do still find astrology to be interesting. He also does tarot card readings, but that’s another story all together.

Anyways, since it’s my birthday month, I figured I talk a little about astrology, and my sign! I’m an Aries. The ram. According to most sources, Aries are fiery, moody, independent, a bit ego-inflated, optimistic, impatient, and impulsive. It’s also the first zodiac sign and ruled by Mars. In roman mythology, Mars was the God of War. Eep!

Now, I wouldn’t say I’m all of these things, I’m certainly not too impulsive, at least at times. I don’t like making up my mind about things, aka, never ask me what I want to eat, because half the time I want everything and don’t want to choose. I am independent though, and surprisingly stubborn about my ideals. My impatience only really comes out if I’m driving or I’m in a bad mood or, most importantly, waiting for delivery food when I’m hungry, otherwise, I don’t think I’m too impatient. Maybe other people would tell you differently though.

My favorite thing is that it says that dating an Aries woman never lacks excitement. I’m pretty sure I’m not on the Aries boat with this one. While I do enjoy adventures, I mostly enjoy laying on the couch watching movies or reading with Alex. I like simple, classic dates nights with exciting ones thrown in from time to time. Although they do mention that Aries ladies are possessive and want to be number one and tend to get jealous, which, I must admit that I totally fit all of these descriptions. But, on the good side, us Aries always want to give strength and build up our partners, so hey, that’s good!

I think the whole being an introvert clashes with being an Aries, they don’t seem to be very interlaced. When you read descriptions of the Aries personality type, it’s like reading an description of a super outgoing extrovert ready to take on the world. When it gets down to it, I’m an Aries in bark, but not in bite. Another interesting point is that I was born in the year of the sheep and my zodiac is a ram, I’m double!

Before answering that call, remember the big project you’re so wrapped up in right now. If your caller is the kind of person who either can’t let you get off the phone easily or may have an equally involved project they desperately need your help with, you can let it go to voice mail or find a way to distract them. Caller ID is your best friend today — if it’s not working, don’t answer!

Do you feel like you’re in line with your zodiac sign?
