Outfit of the Day | The Age of Aquarius

Sweater: Target | Jeans: Gap | Heels: Sam Edelman Portney | Necklace: F21 | Bracelet: J.Crew

Please forgive the god awful pictures I've been throwing at you lately. Yesterday I left for Starbucks (free wifi + not being at home + unlimited supply of coffee = my bar study location of choice) at like 7:45, so the light was bad and I was in a hurry to be productive so I just gave up.

Someday my nice camera will come out of storage and this will all be a bad memory. 
Today is not that day.

Blog Challenge Day 6: Discuss your zodiac sign.
I'm an Aquarius. At least I used to be. Didn't they invent some new sign and displace everyone or something? Whatever. You know what they say, you can take the water-bearer out of the girl...
(No one says that.)

So anyway I Horoscope.com'd that ish and y'all should just settle in and get to know me too well.

Symbol: The Water Bearer
Element: Air
Group: Theoretical
Polarity: Positive (post-noon)
Favorable Colors: Turquoise
Chinese Counterpart: Tiger
Ruling Planet: Uranus (I CANNOT STOP LAUGHING), Saturn
House Ruled: Eleventh
Opposite Sign: Leo
Lucky Gem: Turquoise
Period: Jan 20 - Feb 18

Aquarius Personality:
Aquarians present themselves in one of two ways. One on hand, you’ll see someone who is shy, and quiet. On the other, an Aquarian can be boisterous, eccentric, and energetic. Both are deep thinkers with a love of helping others. Highly intellectual, this is a sign of fierce independence that prizes intuition tempered with logic. Both personality types have an uncanny ability to see both sides of an argument without prejudice, making them excellent problem-solvers. While very much attuned to the energies around them, Aquarians have a deep need to take time out alone and away to rejuvenate themselves. The keyword for this sign is imagination. The Aquarian can see a world of possibilities even when there appears to be none.

Strengths:
Progressive, original, humanitarian (if by "humanitarian" you mean "harbors a strong dislike for most humans"), independent.

Weaknesses:
Runs from emotional expression, uncompromising, temperamental, aloof. (#nailedit)

Charismatic marks:
Good looks, beautiful eyes, angular faces, thin build. (I feel like Horoscope.com just awkwardly tried to pick me up at a bar. Or in front of like Walmart)

Likes:
Fun with friends, fighting for causes, helping others, intellectual conversation, a good listener.

Dislikes:
Limitations, being lonely, broken promises, dull or boring situations, people who disagree with them. (I'm sorry, does ANYONE like these things?)

Best environment:
Any gathering of people to exchange ideas. (So long as they're my ideas.)

Also, this is my "wellness" horoscope for today. Methinks someone saw me down those eight graham cracker cookies last night:
There is no one in charge of your diet but you. Dieting does not mean "losing weight" - it means knowing what and when is best for you to eat. It means resting so that your internal organs get a break, and organizing your eating schedule so that they work most efficiently. Fundamentally, your diet is something you should enjoy. The power you have to look your best rests in your diet.

What's your sign, baby? Winky face winky face.

  1. I love that they give you a Chinese counterpart, when the Chinese zodiacs have nothing to do with what month you were born in, and everything to do with what year you were born in. Someone did their homework.
    I'm at the tail-end of the Libra sign, and all that "loves balance and harmony" ish has never applied to me; supposedly, I also abhor (nice word, horoscope.com) being alone, and dislike "Injustice, violence, conformity, and loudmouths". Because some people really enjoy injustice and violence (seriously, who comes up with this?!) I think the Scorpio, which follows the Libra, is much more fitting for me, as is my Chinese sign, the snake. I mean, if I gave any credence to things like this.
