What's your sign?

I never put much stock in the zodiac or horoscopes. But one summer a friend and I were in a small gift shop in an artsy town on Lake Michigan and I found a book that was supposed to know all about you based on your exact birth date. When I found my date, I was stunned. It really did seem to know EVERYTHING. I look back and wish I had purchased it right then and there, but alas I walked out the door and probably spent my money on something stupid like a hemp necklace or beer.
I REALLY wish I had bought the book when I was carded at Trader Joe's a few months back and the girl said, "Oh, you're a Virgo. So are you like really anal?" Because then I could have flipped to my exact page to let her know that although most Virgo's possess that wicked label, I'm not as bad. But I suppose whipping out a giant zodiac book to prove my point would have been a little anal. So maybe she's right, but it didn't make me want to yank that hoop out of her nose any less.
Although I can't find the book, I have noticed a lot of fun zodiac-inspired gift-y items as of late. Observe:
{ Horoscope Tiles: Sweet or Sassy, $35 each right here. }
{ Zodiac Heirloom Pockets by artist Kata Golda, $28 right here. }
{ Organic Zodiac Short-Sleeved Bodysuit, $12.5o right here. }
{ Sterling Silver Zodiac necklace from marmar's Etsy shop. $32 right here. }

I'm a scorpio on my sweet tile on that site is spot on. I'll let my therapist comment on all the traits listed on my sassy tile. :)

I think I have that book, and like you I'm not so into zodiac signs but this one nailed me...It's called The Secret Language of Birthdays" and is available on Amazon.

maybe you can make a copy of your page and acrry it around with you? LOL
