Yesterday, during an afternoon break at Starbucks with two colleagues (shocking!), we reviewed our horoscopes (you know how Starbucks posts them near the pick-up). My one colleague said I obviously am an Aries, which caused me to look up the personality type of an “aries” (all this said, it’s a little creepy how spot on I do think my personality is with this description but I’m not a huge believer in horoscopes at all).
Aries in a nutshell:
Aries Strengths: Independent, Generous, Optimistic, Enthusiastic, Courageous
Aries Weaknesses: Moody, Short tempered, Self-involved, Impulsive, Impatient (TRUE!)
Aries personalities are independent. Being the first of the zodiac signs, they venture out and are go-getters, often leading the way. Their upbeat and magnetic personality often entices others to follow their lead because Aries personalities bring excitement into others lives.
Aries are good friends, they always look out for their friends with caring and generosity and will protect them should the need arise and encourage them with their natural optimism.
Aries are activists. If a business idea comes their way, they tend to plunge right in. Aries are more then willing to take a gamble and follow their dreams and goals. However, if success is not immediate, they tend to lose interest and give up easily. Aries are notorious for not finishing what they have begun. This is due to the low tolerance for boredom and lack of patience. If the excitement is gone from their business idea, they go off and search for it elsewhere.
So those of you that know me well…what do you think? My colleague mentioned my “fierce independence” as one of the qualities that made her think I’m a quintessential Aries.
By the way: Happy Happy Birthday to the city I love more than any others – the CLE! Stay cool this weekend Cleveland!
