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.
