Once upon a time I was really into astrology. Not just sun signs, but, diagramming the whole chart astrology. Granted that was a long time ago, but I was fascinated by the subject.
Part of this interest probably had to do with the fact that my whole chart had been done by a professional when I was a baby and I had tapes of her predictions for my future. It was really a fascinating two hours to sit and listen to someone talking about what kind of a person I was supposed to grow up to be like and seeing how much of it was true thus far (as a teen).
In any case I used to have Linda Goodman’s book Love Signs on my shelf as well as latitude and longitude books and other chart mapping tools. I was fascinated with people’s birthdates and times and how it influenced their personalities. To me it made sense that the moon and stars could have an effect on our emotions. After all, our bodies contain a lot of fluids and the moon controls the tides. It’s not as far- fetched as it may seem. That was my reasoning at the time anyway, lol.
When I got married, along with my Ouija board and my tarot cards and other occultish items, the ex- husband said these have to go. He felt they were anti -Christian and had no place in our home. At the time, I reluctantly agreed. I was more willing to let go of this stuff than my music but all of it was tossed. Even the astrology tapes I’d had done when I was too young to remember. I don’t think anyone has an extra copy of them either.
I still remember a lot of what was said during the reading because I’d listened to those tapes over and over again. You could hear the sound of the ocean in the background as she talked about my Virgo sun sign, Aquarius rising. I have Mars in Libra, Jupiter in Gemini, and overall a bunch of air signs dominating my birth chart. Due to all this I felt I wasn’t really meant to be a Virgo. I mean, how could that even describe me? They sound so anal and prude, annoying in all the descriptions.
How could I reconcile my ENFP traits, with those of a Virgo and the way they are typically portrayed? Virginal? Uptight? Moi? You must be joking!!
During a discussion maybe a year or so ago, when I was home visiting family, one of my sisters brought up the zodiac and I rolled my eyes saying that I didn’t feel like Virgo described me very well. My mother was quick to jump in that oh yes, it is me to a T. What?
She said yes because I am “very efficient” and they bombarded me with words describing my typically Virgo nature. Okay, okay. I guess there might be a little truth to it. Maybe.
A lady at the bank today called my checkbook balancing “meticulous”. There had been a mistake on my records and I came in to verify mine versus theirs so I wouldn’t be given an extra charge. Apparently in this day and age most people don’t take the time to balance their records the way I do. In my pole dancing class the other day one of the instructors pointed out my tendency to be way overcritical of myself when she asks how I felt or think I did. I notice the tiniest mistakes. Yes, I am a perfectionist.
All that is very Virgo. But does it carry over into the bedroom? Hmmmm….
I’m far from prude but I guess I do have my little things. If someone called me names in the sack, like “bitch” or “whore” I’d probably up and walk out. I’m very much a pleaser and want to do everything the way the guy likes it. It took me a very long time to get to the point where I realized that to have orgasms I needed to stop trying to give so much and just lie back and receive.
By the way, I also have Venus, which is the sign of love and relationships, in Virgo. Dammit. It’s a double whammy.
Did I mention I have this thing for guys that are really anal about something or other? Haha. Like, I think it’s hot when he tells me he irons his socks, for example, or the way the Pilot schedules and plans things way ahead of time. The guy I had the affair with can be rather OCD about cleanliness and I just loved it. Yeah, it’s a little weird but it must be the Virgo in me.
Back in the day, I knew this girl who said her goal in life was to fuck a guy from every sign of the Zodiac. I wonder if I have done that yet?
Let’s see…. The guy I had the affair with was an Aquarius. Yeah, that fits him. Really well. He’s very creative, genius even, and not afraid to be different from all the rest. He’s kind of unpredictable and we are supposed to be a terrible match, Aquarius and Virgo, but maybe the rising sign helps, lol. We did have a lot of ups and downs, and do have an offbeat, unusual sort of relationship. Sometimes I think we are over and done with but then, randomly, this morning, he sent me a picture of his dick, lol. Maybe not ;).
My FWB is a Scorpio. Hawt. So was the first guy I ever had sex with. Both are/were very intense in the sack.
The Professor, my Fuck Buddy and the Producer, as well as the guy I was platonic friends with for years before starting to have threesomes with? Oh, and the guy I basically couldn’t stand but had great sex with all the time anyway? Sagittarius. All of them, lol. WTH? I must be some sort of Sagittarius magnet. I’d categorize them all as people who have difficulty expressing their feelings and sort of free roamers.
The guy I was in love with for the longest and who broke my heart? Libra. So were several other guys I have slept with and had relationships with in the past. That’s another sign I seem to draw in. On one hand they can be a lot of fun and easy to get along with. Yet they can be surprisingly heartless when you are least expecting it.
My ex- husband was a Virgo. So was the guy who tried to choke me when I told him I had cheated on him. Yeah, I’m not feeling so keen on Virgo men. The ex was extremely critical, of me and unrealistic in his expectations. I guess that is something I need to watch out not to become myself.
The Married Man is a Pisces. He is flaky as fuck too. Yet in the bedroom? WOW. Just wow. There are no words for how amazing he is in that regard. Yeah, I’d sleep with him again in a heartbeat, even if he flakes out on plans a million times.
The totally crazy guy I dated who ended up in prison and who I had the most volatile relationship with in my life was an Aries. Yeah, impulsive, bullheaded, fiery temper, that would be him. He was very aggressive in the bedroom.
The Pilot is a Leo! I love it! I can totally see how that fits him. He loves attention and draws a lot of it but is also very generous and kind. He’s enthusiastic and can go and go and go in the bedroom. He’s making me pretty happy at the moment too! I dated this Italian guy that was a Leo way back in middle school and he was pretty jealous and hotheaded but I haven’t seen that out of the Pilot yet. Haha.
He wants us to make a couples profile together on the swinger site. 🙂 I love how he’s all gung ho to do this stuff that I could never get from the Prof, without me even asking. We had a blast last night trying to come up with our profile name and were cracking each other up for a couple hours. I think we’ve chosen a pretty good one too. 😉
Anyhow, what does that leave? I don’t recall ever fucking a Taurus. They are supposed to be one of my best matches too. I can’t remember any Cancers either. I’m pretty sure I have slept with some Gemini’s but I don’t think any of them were significant in my life. Capricorns? Not that I know of. My Capricorn teenage son drives me nuts though. I’m not sure how any woman is ever going to put up with him, lol. Maybe he’ll calm down in a couple of years but headstrong, demanding, extremely impulsive, and full of tall tales doesn’t seem like what I’d be looking for in a guy. :p
Yeah, I take all of this with a big old grain of salt but it’s fun to think about it anyway. Betty Homebanger inspired me awhile back with this post: Sexuality and Astrology. How about you all? What are your experiences with sleeping with the 12 signs? Anyone done the whole wheel?
