These days people have taken the zodiac sign thing to the extreme .. blaming all their bad characters and habits on it.

I can’t say for sure if it’s a sole contributor to ones innate character or nature ... but I know when you analyze ones habits and preferences or behavioral characteristics it somehow aligns with what ever ones zodiac traits are

I don’t think people consider it before getting married, it’s not important enough to be considered in this part of our world

Although Indians do, the Indian movies I have watched shows that they check for zodiac compatibility to determine
If a union should take place or not.

But since we exhibit some of the characters of our zodiac traits,
If not 💯percent at least to a large extent I believe each and everyone of us exhibit one or two or all of our zodiac traits.. marrying a person whose trait is opposite from yours or might cause a bit of friction, but like I said as an adult what ever trait or character you exhibit that is bad should be changed and Unlearnt for a better one, don’t go about proudly blaming learnt bad habits or bad character on your zodiac sign traits ..

I am a Scorpio and I have found out that most, not all but most of Scorpio zodiac traits can be found in my character or way of doing or living Life ...

The fact that the traits are malleable and extremely subject to change puts the authenticity of the zodia signs in question. Are they really "real" or just an arrangement made by some listless individual somewhere.

Hi!! How is the weekend going with you?
You see this zodiac issue ehn, many people have attached their bad characters horoscope or Zodiac and that hasn't be helpful to them.
When I first read of Zodiac signs at a younger age, back them the Punch newspaper was publishing horoscope forecast on a daily basis, it wasn't just working. I had to close my eye at it.
I don't believe in it, not one bit.

I think the problem isn't even with Zodiac signs, it's just generally with people looking for ways to put blame on things instead of taking responsibilities for their actions.

What do you think about Zodiac signs?

To me, Zodiac signs are just fun things, I love looking at them but I don't take it any serious.

What is your zodiac sign?

I am a Taurus, and I am an earth sign and we are represented by bulls.

Does/did it play any role in choosing your life partner?

I wish 😆 I don't even look at these when I date but, maybe I should because I have noticed that I am more compatible with people the signs say I am.

Do you exhibits traits related to your sign?

I do a lot, I have strong desires just like the signs said, prone to anger and all that.


Generally I think Zodiac signs are just cool, and even though I have heard people say it's demonic, I don't care (please don't come and tell me it is), it's not that deep.

That's what they told us. Meanwhile, there are Christian practices these people came with that are barbaric. People currently practicing traditional religions don't do these so called barbaric things you speak of as far as I know.

Hmm.
I think you should get a little closer to some of these traditionalists to see how things are being done.
The blood sacrifices to some other secret enchantment they are involved in.

0

avatar

Did they bring it to us?
I don't think so, I don't think Christianity is something owned by the white, they were also Christianized by the Romans and if you trace back Africa is somewhere in the timeline of the spread of Christianity before Missionaries came into Nigeria, so If they didn't come, True Christianity was bound to touch all. The religious culture also has its funny beliefs, each should hold on to what they believe.

What I don't like is being in two places, if you're doing Horoscope, do Horoscope and if you are believing God, stand firm.

I'm not a big fan of zodiac signs. I don't even know mine. I just find it preposterous that people try to justify their silly behaviors and traits through some interstellar bullshit.

But I think there is a way you can turn the signs in your favour. I mean, if my zodiac says I'm hardworking, there is a possibility that I would want to work hard for that reason. It makes sense in that instance.

But Omo, I don't judge people by their signs and I feel like we should have outgrown this thing but of course, trust the fucking millennials and gen Z folks to make everything about signs. 🤦

The same goes opposite as well. Some might use their zodiac sign to justify their bad characters.

You Sabi the scope boss.

Another thing I think is that when people say that they see similar traits with their signs, I feel like it's the good ones.

Like if the sign says they are smart, everyone wants to be smart, so the folks will like to think of themselves as being smart which doesn't mean they are. They might be dumb as a board

You are right here,some persons who even posses the bad habit doesn't even posses the good sides relating to their zodiac sign.
And when you advise them to change, they will be like
"That's my zodiac sign, I can't change"

The zodiaco sign are the Energy that convert un unique a person because dont have alone one for the Energy of the other astral in the sky, born with one it's true but have another four that influence AND i agree have a Lilith AND middle sky that influence a person. The best to revenge, the most spiritual AND lust of all my sign of zodiac Is Scorpio from oct/24 first decan of those influence by Géminis, Acuario, Tauro AND Sagitario. Yes, my actually Partner Is Aries influenced for Virgo, Escorpio, Leo AND Piscis alone in the privacity AND fortune wheel are good, another figth all day because both personality are explossive.

All in my are considerated to Scorpion the zodiac máster of spiritual, lust, so brilliant un Energy, charismatic AND good person. I read a card AND considerated midium another It am so apasionated AND jelous with a Partner AND friendo, good un good, bad un bad.

He is trying to explain that your zodiac alone does not define you and that it is also influenced by 4 others so if he is scorpio, he also affected by others in the sky..gemini, aquarios, sagitarius and bla bla..
