I would like to mention that I do not believe in all this superstitious nonsense. However for the fun of sharing semi-personal stuff; I am a lion hear me roar !

edit: Wasn't there a zodiac revision or something recently ? 'Cause when looking at wiki's chart, I would be Cancer instead of a Leo.

Pisces - although I think the newpaper zodiac readings are about as valid as fortune cookies .... I do seem to have a lot in common with the personality of a Pisces with a few major differences.

Yeah well, that's coincidental I've got pretty much none of the typical characteristics of a Leo.

I'm the most stereotypical sagittarius you're ever likely to meet. My chart is all wonky - it's pretty much EVERYTHING EVER clustered in the Sagittarean region. Like, guy who collects weird astrological charts was all "omg I am so saving this" at it.

Not that I believe in it, but I think that a lot of the typical "traits" have a sientific explanation based on stuff like conditions during pregnancy and first months of life.

Virgo always wins these polls. I still havent heard a plausible explanation as to why.

Uh let me try;

well I've got one but it's a little flawed and kinda limited to people living in temperate climate and the northern hemisphere. Virgos are born mid August to mid September, which are the 8th and 9th month of the Gregorian calendar. As you all know (hopefully) human pregnancy last for 9 month. So that means Virgos were conceived during mid January to mid February aka northern winter months. So, hypothesis; it's cold, you can't really go out and there's nothing else better to do

Looking at my social network, Pisces and Scorpios would win these pools. An awful lot of friends/family/relatives are born on March 3,4 or 5, and October 25th (my birthday) counts the most anniversaries (including our NecroBunny / Oryctolagus Mortis ).

To be clear: Scorpio here.

Speaking as a Virgo, my parents straight up told me I was conceived over Christmas vacation. To make it even worse, it was apparently at my grandparents' house.

Believe me, that's the kind of thing I would have loved to go through life not knowing

LOL Reep - understand that it's a parents obligation to occasionally embarrass their children. Actually I told my oldest son that he was conceived in a laundry nook in a tiny room at the top of a house in Mexico. He actually found it funny and we discussed him getting a tattoo on his butt in the shape of a "Made In Mexico" stamp.

None of the explanations sit well with me. They might apply to partying teenagers but it doesn't really explain why so many normal young married couples would be any more likely to conceive in December and January than any other time of the year.

'Tis the season. A bit of eggnog or hot toddy add a generous helping of holiday spirit and even a married guy can get laid.
