So I’m a Virgo Now..

{ Siri Tollerod by Tim Gutt in Star Signs | Vogue UK December 2010 }

It claims the following to be true:


People who were born in this period are as a rule generally successful in life. They have keen, good intellects, are very discriminating about those with whom they associate, and in all business matters they have good judgment, and are not easily imposed upon or deceived.

They are usually materialistic in their views of life, and analyze and reason everything from their own way of thinking outwards. These people are and attracted to only that knowledge that can be applied usefully. They will happily share this information with anyone, if it confirms their own usefulness in the world, and brings them eagerly out of there shells.

These people can become good literary critics, being quick to see the weak points. They are extremely fond of harmony in their surroundings, have excellent taste about their house and dress, and always want things in good taste, and elegant.

Virgos are usually fastidious about their personal appearance, have a great respect for rank and position, and are great supporters of the law and the law’s decisions. They usually develop this skill to improve themselves and their surroundings as they place great pride in tangible achievements. These people may spend part of their lives heading off on detours and then suddenly emerge as someone with a remarkable sense of direction. They can adjust easily to change once they find a way of fitting the new situation into their routine.

They are inclined to become wrapped up in themselves and their own ideas, and often become selfish in the close pursuit of their aims.

These people are more capable of going to extremes in good and evil than any other type.

If they develop a love for money they will stick at nothing to acquire it, and this type is often considered cunning and crafty at the expense of others.

In love they are the most difficult to understand, the very best and the very worst of men and women being born in this part of the year. To people born under this sign love is not dramatic, emotional, or sentimental. Love for them is devotion and will include love of family, friends, and those less fortunate than he or she. There is no pretense involved in how they act or what they say. Marriage is a major commitment; they value their union as both a love relationship and a working partnership. A warm relationship brings out the best in anyone born under this sign because basically they are kind, devoted and very loyal.

Disappointment, however, can harden them into a cynic and a skeptic. Virgos consequently become quite critical with themselves as well as with circumstances, due to the effect of such disappointments on a sensitive and discriminating nature.

Virgo – The Sign of the Harvest Goddess

The people who were born under the sign of Virgo have the strongly advanced analytical mind and all the time trying to glue labels on everything they see. They have sharp feelings of taste, time, hearing and sense of smell. The symbol of this sign is Virgo. It does not mean, that they are pure and sinless . It means that heir amazing abilities to observe allow them to see all the human lacks. Usually they do not like everything that they see, and they withdraw like Virgo.


People born under this sign have difficulty making friends. They won’t make the first step until they feel absolutely comfortable with this people. Yet when they do make the effort, these people are capable of achieving extraordinary things. They can find their most lasting friendships with those born in their own Sign, also from April 20 to May 20-27.


In health, as a rule, they are less liable to diseases than persons born in any other part of the year, yet the strange thing about them is that they are always imagining themselves to have every illness that they may happen to read about. They are very refined in their tastes as far as food is concerned, and must have things nicely put before them or they will lose their appetites. Health-conscious Virgo makes an effort to stay physically fit and they don’t mind repetitive exercise routines, if they can see achievable outcomes. You enjoy tennis, racquetball, swimming, sailing, fishing, and biking, even though athletically they are not overly competitive. They are extremely sensitive to their surroundings; the least disharmony or annoyance affects their nervous system and upsets their digestive organs. These people have a tendency to have chest trouble, and to suffer from neuritis in the shoulder and arms. If badly mated, or living under inharmonious marriage conditions, they easily fall into ill health or get extremely despondent. They should never drink alcohol, as it seems to be more a poison to them than to any ether class.


Their most suitable colors are all very pale shades and silvery, shimmering materials.


The birth stones, for this period are emeralds, diamonds and pearls.


The verdict is still out how much I agree with this or not. I sorta liked being s Scorpio. Shame.

Finding that Dream Home

I’ll admit, sometimes I DO in fact sit on my computer and see if my dream house is out there. I search the local Utah Market seeing if I can find something that would spark my interest. I look all over the valley at any price and you know what? I come up empty handed. Yes, I cannot – even for 14 Million find a single house I would want. This left me feeling rather disgusted. How can I not like anything?!

Well I knew then it was time for a new plan. I needed to start looking at house plans, of course. So I’ve started looking and well this is the best one yet. Really I just need to move to Scotland or Ireland and be done with it, but I can’t just do that yet now can I. ( smirks )

Music Monday { Ellie Goulding

Of course you know who Ellie Goulding is. Let me guess, you have known about her for a year or so now, right? Oh, what was that? You have no idea who I am talking about? Well frankly I don’t know if we can be friends now, I mean really maybe we weren’t friends to being with. I just really don’t know now. I’m going to need some time.

Please Listen, now:

New Year New Goals

Not sure if I even finished any of my goals last year, frankly I don’t even remember what they were. But regardless lets give me some sort of credit and say I did in fact complete 2. I think that is a fair number.

This year my goal is to survive another year. Yes folks, that is it. I’m keeping it simple that way when 2012 comes I can say if I did or didn’t complete said goal. For my sake I hope I do, because If not well that means something terrible happen. Maybe I will in fact get eaten by a shark this year. Crash my Audi R8 or be trampled by the wild deer that roam around our streets in the wee hours of the night.

So from me to you, I hope you all survive too.

Happy New Year’s Birthday to the Mr.

Yes, he did turn a few more numbers older this year. I cannot even tell you the exact number since depending on who he talked to it seemed to flux like a feather in the wind. Cake and Company was the delight of the evening. And a special thanks to Momio and Betty Crocker for the yummie Red Velvet Cake which the Mr. will enjoy for maybe another day before it is completely gone. Happy Day of Birth!
