Dream Attitude Change If I'm Not A Gemini Anymore

Change is afoot in the zodiac. It’s not NEW news since those astronomers figured out the whole “shift in the Earth’s axis” way back when. The outcry online with this news ranges from distraught to hilarious and got me thinking.

Does it make it easier to live our lives if we can identify with a larger group of people?

As with any endeavor in life – career, dreaming, personal relationships – I think most of us want to belong and be accepted. What better way to explain my seeming multiple personalities other than “I am a Gemini”?

Or I used to say I was. Apparently now I’m a Taurus, and since I know nothing about that sign, I can’t identify with it yet. The burning question now is . . .

Not A Gemini AnymoreWill my new zodiac sign affect my dream?

A quick caveat – I am not a huge believer in the zodiac. I choose to look at my horoscope occasionally for entertainment and fun. So let’s do some comparisons, and see if I can channel Taurus “The Bull” into my dream plan.

The Taurus individual is a stable, conservative, home-loving individual who will always make a loyal friend or partner.

OK, I do hope that my family and friends see me this way. Not loyal like a puppy, but supportive. Stable may be a sticking point. But normality is never something I strive for, especially with my dreams.

Like a bull, the Taurus personality will almost never lose course and will remain level no matter what chaos surrounds him.

My family is famous for this. Handle the situation, get past the immediate crisis, then completely break down later. This has actually come in handy several times while pursuing my dreams.

The Taurus individual is stubborn – the most stubborn of all the zodiac signs.

Stubborn I will completely admit to. I’ve definitely been stubborn with my dreams or goals. In some cases holding on to the point of disaster. This may be a trait I will have to rework.

Nowhere near "neat"

Taureans in the workplace are the ones with neat, well-appointed, comfortable offices that never change much.

I almost fell off my chair laughing at this one. Cath and Remy can attest that “neat” is not a word that describes my working environment. Maybe comfortable. As long as the heater is on.

Taurus likes the good life, but tends to be careful with money, slowly building up wealth as he goes.

This I can use in pursuit of my dream. Or use as an excuse. Sure I’m not rich yet, because I’m s-l-o-w-l-y building wealth. This may be another for the reconsideration pile since this has got to speed up.

But wait . . . until yesterday I totally related to being a Gemini!

Does this mean we can choose the traits that really work for us in driving our dreams?

I say YES. Now go throw a dart at the zodiac and pick everything that works for you. And if it doesn’t work tomorrow feel free to change it.

What dream strengths can you identify with in your “new” sign?

    Astrology has been suspect all the long. Ancient Babylonians had 13 constellations, but wanted only 12, so they threw out Ophuchicus, the snake holder. Libra didn’t come around until the times of Julius Caesar. It seems to change as much as the Catholic bible.

    This new change now makes me a Gemini – talk about wanting to roll around on the floor with laughter – since we know how many Geminis I’ve had to deal with in my life. Lordy!

    But then, our favorite skeptics Michael Shermer and James Randi have been pointing out the errors in astrology for years, so this is nothing new – but I guess astrologists finally heard what they have been saying. My guess is that Michael and James are laughing over their morning coffee.

    It further proves we are in charge of creating our own destiny, and nothing written by someone else should ever have any influence over how we live our lives.

    I had an interview once where the women I was going to work for wanted to know my zodiac sign so she could consult with her Vedic astrologer for the answer on hiring me.

    I thought, “You’ve got to be kidding me. I’d be the best thing that could happen to your Internet marketing presence ever, but you are going to consult some stranger who’s going to throw dirt on the floor (or whatever) to make a decision about me?”

    Why get training, go to school and be knowledgeable in your field if it all comes down to when you were born?

    Talk about giving away your power and your responsibility! Needless to say I didn’t get the job, but the story still gives me a great laugh. WAIT! maybe I should have told her I was a Gemini!

    We’ve always had the power to change our destiny – write your own 2011 horoscope the way you want your life to be and hang it on the wall – I bet you’ll come a lot closer to being accurate than any astrological forecast you ever read!

    ok if this is true – no longer an Aries the ram and now a Pisces – a fish? Its not that i cant swim I just hate bathing suits. hmm. If this is true, my second ex husband will have to get both of his fish tattoos removed. Bummer. But here is something interesteting.

    This is one of the things described in my ‘new’ sign – “This zodiac sign is acknowledged as being the Saint and the Sinner rolled into one; the trendsetter of fashion or art, the lost soul, the philosopher and the psychotic and the visionary.” Oh yea, thats me. lol

    I think you are right, if it’s just as easy to say “well now I’m no longer “defined” this way, I”m now gonna use “this” definition, you can create yourself into whoever you want to be, Heather. The other side of that is, there are no excises for us anymore! BUMMER.

    Great post xoxo REm
