I Wonder How Much of an Aquarian I Really Am?

I went to the same site that super jane did because I figured it was only fair to use the same characteristics to compare myself. Yes, an Aquarian is posting after two Capricorns and the site does tell me that Caps and Aqua girls do not make good love matches. Which is a huge relief because, well, I can't have my friends going around and kissing me all the time. My husband would not appreciate that.

To keep this post shorter than 400 paragraphs, I am just going to use the characteristics they've listed at the top of the page here. You can read all about the Aquarius sign in-depth if you like below the list.

The Good
1. Friendly and humanitarian - I would like to think that I am friendly and a humanitarian. I like to make the people around me happy and I think that I do my part to try and help out around the world.
2. Honest and loyal - I would definitely agree with this. I cannot lie to save my life and honesty is something I value very much. Loyal is a word that I think describes me as well. I am loyal to a fault and refuse to give up on people.
3. Original and inventive - I know that my husband would definitely say that I am an original! I would like to think that I stand out in a crowd. I typically don't mind what other people think of me. Inventive is one word that I am going to hold judgment on. I'm not sure that I'm inventive per se, but I am definitely creative. I think that counts.
4. Independent and intellectual - Absolutely. I am fiercely independent and it is the one thing I've had the toughest time giving up. I like to be on my own, do things for myself, and I don't need anyone else's help, thankyouverymuch. I'd like to think that I am intellectual, but I don't want to sound like a snob, do I?

The Bad
1. Intractable and contrary - Hi, my name is Wicked M and I am intractable; otherwise known as stubborn. I am definitely a stubborn girl and I have no idea how to control it. I want to be right, I am right, and I am not backing down. It's my way or the highway! You get the idea. I think the author of the website meant for intractable and contrary to be synonyms. I'm going with that because some of the definitions online for contrary aren't very nice (see: hostile). Yikes!
2. Perverse and unpredictable - I'm a little confused on this one. I am definitely not perverse in the creepy sense of the word. Perverse typically means disobedient as well. This is one thing I am not. I am definitely an obedient person. I love rules, love following the rules, love being the good girl. Unpredictable is also not a word I would use to describe myself. At all. You would never have found me being the one to instigate trouble back in college because I wasn't unpredictable. I was too busy following the rules.
3. Unemotional and detached - Wrong again, website. I am one of the most emotional people that there ever was. Hi, sobbing down the aisle at my wedding? I cried at pizza last week because my husband was gone. Detached is also not a word that describes me. At all. In fact, I'd say I err on the side of being too attached to my emotions. You'll never find me being stoic in a situation where tears are a possibility. I'll always cry.

I think part of the reason that my characteristics are so close to the Capricorns that have posted before me is that I am right on the cusp of Capricorn/Aquarius. So, I've got a little bit of that in me too. I think we are all pretty interesting, no matter what astrological sign we were born under.

Come here and let me kiss you, Wicked M!
You made me laugh so hard! I didn't realize how similar Caps and Aquis are until JUST now. I can't wait to hear from our little Virgo tomorrow! :)
