I’m not a big follower of Astrological signs. I mean, I read my horoscope from time to time, but I’ve never put much stock into them.
Until I started paying attention to my Hubbs’ Virgo personality: Tidy. Sensitive. Analytical. Logical. Grounded. Keeps feelings inside. Respectful. Dependable, predictable and loyal.
And mine (Gemini): Independent. Easily bored. Creative. Expressive. Challenging. Quick. Adventurous. Cautious, optimistic and loyal.
And then I ponder on how different our interests are: his love of golf and sports and anything competitive. My love of being creative: in the kitchen, at the computer, piano or with a paintbrush.
And when I think of us, the image that comes to mind is the Circus. I just love the energy of the performers, the colors and the action; I would be exhilarated from all that activity. He would shudder at the mere suggestion. I love to travel and go; he sweats when filling a suitcase.
But when I picture us, I can’t help but smile at his stoic Virgo-ness and how he gently but firmly grounds my Gemini circus balloons. On the contrary, it’s my Gemini twins who shake up his world and let him know that coloring inside the lines is not always necessary. In fact, stepping out of them can be a whole lot of fun.
In the end, I suppose it’s all about balance.
How about you? Have you ever considered how the Zodiac affects your relationships?
