I live my life in a shell

You Should Be A Cancer
What’s good about you: you’re incredibly kind, caring, and generousWhat’s bad about you: you can be too moody and impossible to understandIn love: you enjoy wining and dining the object of your affectionIn friendship, you’re: likely to depend on other friends for emotional supportYour ideal job: historian, marine biologist, or religious figureYour sense of fashion: you dress to match your moodYou like to pig out on: classic home cooked meals, like mac and cheese

While I am not sure about most of what it says about me, I did find it amusing that the quiz is to find out what sign I should be. I took that to mean that if I were born a cancer, which I was, then I could take this test and find out that I am really a scorpio.

I took the test and found out that I am and should be a cancer.

I think it is funny because when I read other signs personality traits I can find some that suit me as well. I will say that, all in all, I do think that the cancer sign suits me best.

The first part of the description fits me perfectly. However, the part about depending on my friends for emotional support isn’t really me. I am sorry to say I have learned in my life to not depend on anyone for emotional support. I hide all my feelings inside and work it out by myself. It is hard for me to make friends because of my bottling everything up. The only person that I may let see this vulneralbe side of me is my husband. However, it is not in his personality to be the kind of person you lean on. He doesn’t like to hear about problems or help me sort things out.

I don’t have anyone to tell my dreams to or a shoulder to cry on. I am alone this way. It doesn’t mean my husband is a bad husband. My ex was the same. Men don’t like to talk about problems rather they like to just fix them or ignore them. Women, in general, like to talk problems out working out the best solution because I know I can’t just walk away and ignore it. I have to fix everything before I sleep well at night.

What am I babbling about? I am a very open person but I don’t have any real friends. I am a loner. I just rely on me. It is not a good way to live your life and I want to change this part of my personality. I want to learn to rely on others. I want to learn how to be more open to others as in opening myself up to them even if it means they may hurt me.

Life is too short to live in a shell.

What do you think about all this sign stuff? Is it hogwash or is there some validity to it?

    I think the first part is right too. From you’re blog I would guess that you are very good with people in you’re everyday life as you are on-line. Classic home cooked meals – that’s you too. I think you mentioned something about it before. Can’t remember. Depending on other people for emotional support…I have no idea;-) I think you’re pretty independant and in control of you’re emotions; probably from being a Mother. I could see you as a historian and religious figure also. You kind of remind me of my oldest sister in that way.

    I love history and I love studying religions but I couldn’t see myself as a religious figure. ;)

    I loved reading my horiscope in the newspaper back in the States. Some how it was rarely correct :p
    But, it was still fun.

    Mine said I should be a Gemini (I’m a Pisces) – it was falirly accurate about me -especially the pigging out on junk food like Burritos..;-)…
    but it was way wrong in the first line where it said I am fun to be around and the life of the party ot something like that. I am quite quiet actually – don’t make a lot of noise nor draw attention to myself..I’m very shy deep down..although I do cover it up.

    I did it again to get that first line…it said I am witty and energetic and fun to be around….I really don’t agree with that.

    I don’t know Wendy because I feel that you are like this on your blog. I know sometimes people say I am not shy too. I am like you and am quiet except around my family. I think you are very witty on your blog…you and Alison both are. You make me laugh all the time. I love going to read about the funny things in your life and how you describe them. I do understand what you are saying about not feeling that way inside. Our blogs aren’t always us in a whole form but bits and pieces of who we are letting out.

    I think it is funny to try to describe a whole group of people born under a sign with the same words. I know for one that I am changing all the time (yikes sign of a cancer!) and I am many people in one body…wife, mother, lover, child, adult, teacher, banker, dreamer, hard worker, daughter, sister, cousin, friend, neighbor, blogger…many people see me so differently.

    I do think there’s a lot to astrology, but you also have to take the ascendants and moon signs into account. That’s why two people born under the same sun sign may seem completely different.

    The quiz said I should be a Gemini, and I’m AM a Gemini. Go figure.
