    I've just tried a free sample on Astrology.com .. Although i'll take it with a pinch of salt .. It was interesting.

    Sun in Aries:

    The truth that each of us is essentially alone and that we must ultimately answer to ourselves regarding our choices in life is one that resonates deeply within you. Thus, sarah, your first loyalty is to yourself and to living your own life as authentically as possible. When you are most yourself, you are a risk taker, a trailblazer, forging your own path rather than following anyone else's lead. Whether or not you have the courage to do so, to boldly assert yourself and follow your own star - standing alone when necessary - is crucial to fulfilling your life purpose.

    There are many ways, both positive and negative, you could choose to express this core sense of singleness and this need to be an original or a pioneer. You may, for instance, simply choose to remain single. Your independence, autonomy, and freedom are very important to you, and at heart you really do not want to be distracted from your purposes or encumbered by the responsibilities and complications that accompany close, ongoing partnership with others. You are by nature a solo. This does not necessarily mean that you will avoid intimate relationships or commitments, but there must be some arena in you life where you are the chief, where you take initiative and make the decisions. Being a sole proprietor of an upstart business enterprise, free lancing, supporting yourself with as little external input as possible - they are all possible expressions of your inner drive to live life on your own terms, by your own inner creativity and dictates. If you do not feel you are your own boss, sarah, you simply will not be happy. Your lifestyle and work must reflect your strong impulses to be self-reliant as well as to create something NEW, in order for you to be in harmony.

    Hmmmm

    (In a letter to Sigmund Freud)

    "One can expect with considerable assurance, that a given well-defined psychological situation will be accompanied by an analogous astrological configuration." - C.G. Jung

    I still think it's interesting that Jung's theories are passed forth as science, and yet Jung himself claimed to receive his inspiration from a "spirit guide."

    You appear gentle and soft, and you act rather reserved with others until you know them well and feel it is safe to be open with them. (Definitely not! LOL!) You have a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging (Who doesn't?), and are deeply attached to the past: your heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. (Definitely) Making radical changes or moves away from what is known and safe can be very painful and difficult for you. (NO WAY! I love to move and explore and move outside my comfort zone!!) You tend to cling and hold on to people, memories, possessions of personal or sentimental significance. (Not really) Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to you (Okay, but again having a home isn't important to everyone?) Find out more with your full-length reading...
    Section 2: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
    You are, in many ways, an eternal child. [B[(Not really--I don't like to play really, unless it's competitive and strategy)[/B] Your mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful, and always eager for new experiences (yes)- and your attention span is often quite brief (NO! I annoy people with how long I can focus on things!) . You grasp ideas quickly and once your initial curiosity has been satisfied, you want to go on to something else. (No, I can beat a dead horse when it comes to learning! I drive everyone around me insane with the depth of knowledge I crave and constantly want to share with them) You crave frequent change, variety, meeting new situations and people. (Frequent is too big of a word! I get bored if I haven't gone and done something new in say 3 months and I like to talk to strangers but I also can stay at home and work really hard for months at a time.)

    I would say 6:4 is pretty bad accuracy . . . .

    Astrology is very important on this site, for it brings into disrepute its twin, MBTI.

    For as well as writing, "Personality Types", Carl was also an astrologer as well as an ardent follower of the Führer.

    Führer means, "guide", in German. And Carl openly admits that, "Personality Types", is based on no empirical evidence, rather it was inspired by a 'guide'.

    ^^ Victor, weak association fallacies involving Nazism, other than being poor, bottom of the barrel-scraping argument, are simply boring.

    Oh, and yet again, could you please stop trying to derail the thread with your provocative comments? Some people actually wish to have a conversation on here that's relevant to the topic. You're not displaying much respect for others by continuing with this behaviour after being asked not to. Thanks

    I think of Victor as a decoration. Like an expensive abstract painting made from the blood of the creator on a canvas of his own dead skin cells, painstakingly harvested and compressed into a thin layer of semitranslucent material. And it sits there against the wall, looming, ominous, occasionally inspiring some new foreboding thought that somehow doesn't drive you insane, but all your visitors gradually become more and more psychotic for every hour they spend in your home...

    Yes, it is called cognitive dissonance and is a sign learning is taking place.

    For certain unconventional (but scientific) definitions of 'learning', absolutely.

    Yes, cognitive dissonance is not part of learning in primary and secondary school. But in tertiary education, cognitive dissonance comes into its own.
