SUPERSTITION.


Noun: a widely held but unjustified belief in supernatural causation leading to certain consequences of an action or event, or a practice based on such a belief.
Over two years ago while in Milan, every thirty feet or so I found myself confronted by an African man trying to present me with a "gift" from Africa; a braided thread bracelet. Once tied upon your wrist, they would then (of course) ask you for money. After forty-eight hours of avoidance, we were finally trapped. I took it as a sign, handed over some Euros and made a wish.

RISING SIGN.



The ascendant (or As), or rising sign, is the zodiacal sign and degree that was ascending on the eastern horizon at the specific time and location of an event.  
I am ashamed that being someone who believes so strongly in astrology I have just figured out my rising sign today. I'm not sure why I suddenly felt the urge to discover this aspect of my zodiac life, but literally out of nowhere I texted my mother to inquire my time of birth. I knew the rough calculation, but I needed precision to be sure. If the internet serves me properly, my ascendant is Scorpio; and here is what I've learned thus far:

PHYSICALITY.

Noun: intensely physical orientation: predominance of the physical usually at the expense of the mental, spiritual, or social.
When I first met my ex-boyfriend (nine years ago), I was the complete opposite (physically) of his previous girlfriend. She was tall(er) with long(er) blonde hair, big(er) boobs , curvy and blue eyes. She dressed rather sexy, for a man's audience that is sure. I am quite short at only five foot three inches, my hair at the time was dyed very dark brown and freshly cut into a short(er) bob, my chest was nearly nonexistent as I was very thin and my eyes are hazel; sometimes brown but sometimes green. My style was, and mostly remains to be, boho-esque; something men don't comprehend. The differences between us shouldn't have mattered, however I was a young and insecure girl in her first relationship and often wondered how one boy could like her and me at the same time.
