Wow, I seem to be blogging a lot recently, have I? ;)
I’m not complaining; in fact, I love the fact that I have so much to pen down… So much thoughts I want to share. ^^
This entry is about horoscopes, which I’ve grown rather interested in lately. And I came across this website, http://www.psychodynamicastrology.com, which asks you to register in the form of your birthdate, time you were born, place, etc. The more you know about these facts, the more accurate your reading will be. I tried it out, and was very much pleasantly surprised at the results, which reflected my personality ON THE DOT. It was literally 98% accurate, and it was REALLY nice to know that what I’ve been thinking of myself is true after all.
Here’s what my report says:

Rather than be dictated to by the demands of society, they break away and forge their own path.
Neptune: The Mystic

Yet, in the depths we may also find ourselves. The Christian process of baptism requires an immersion in water so that one may be reborn into the glory of God.

Alternatively they can discover themselves ‘on the road’, where their travels force open a broader life perspective.
