What’s Your Sign

Today is the day folks, and I am so excited!!! It is the What’s Your Sign link up with Laura and I!!!! Grab the button and let’s learn something new about each other and our astrological signs!

What's Your Sign Link Up Button

I am really interested in astrology and knowing what my sign is. It doesn’t always mean that I agree or relate 100% to it, but I certainly think there is something to it. I am not one that reads my horoscope though and I don’t buy in to all that woowoo business. I feel that our destiny in life can’t be figured out by reading the daily horoscope, you know? But the moon? The older I get, the more I notice that peoples moods are more often than not revolving around the moon. If your spouse is extra cranky, go see if it is a full moon. I bet it is!

Anyways, I thought it would be fun to go through some characteristics of the Leo and confess as to whether or not I identify as such!

Leo’s Strengths – Loyal, confident, ambitious, generous, encouraging, warm-hearted, cheerful,  humorous, broad-minded

I am very loyal, faithful and trustworthy. I am hard working and generous and am a natural people pleaser. I do what I can to help out other people. For the most part, I remain cheerful and upbeat about things, and I think I am hilarious. (You know you think I am too!!!) Confidence is something that I am on the fence with. I am confident in myself in that I believe I am fully capable to achieve things that I put my mind to. I am, however, afraid of failure and sometimes that holds me back. I had a friend tell me that she saw me as the confident one in our group, and that surprised me and made me laugh.

It says that Leos are broad-minded and intolerant of small-minded people. Oh, how that couldn’t be more true for me! I appreciate other people’s beliefs and thoughts and that we are all allowed to have our own. I cannot stand someone that is so small-minded that they are intolerant of other’s just because of their beliefs and thought processes.

Leo’s Weaknesses – Pretentious, egoistic, domineering, melodramatic, stubborn, self-centered, inflexible

When I think of pretentious, I think of people who think they are better than everyone else and care a whole lot about money and status. I care nothing of those things and have never acted better than anyone.

I will admit that I can be dramatic at times, even though in general I don’t really care for drama. If you make me mad or upset and I cross that line from a cool cucumber to angry Nadine…cue the dramatics. I can be stubborn, but I am not inflexible! I am the most easy going person when it comes to plans. That is the people pleaser in me. I am egotistic in that I easily have my feelings hurt. (I hate that about myself.) I might be a people pleaser but I am not an ass kisser and I do not like to be disrespected.

Domineering just made me laugh. But it is partly true. I do not try to control others in the least bit, but I do like to have control over myself. So much so, that it is a rarity that you ever see me have more than just a few drinks. I like to be in control of my actions and thoughts so being drunk is not enjoyable for me. I can admit that I make a bad passenger in the car because I am not in control of it either. And the bad weather freaks me out because of the unknown.

Leo Likes – Speculative ventures, lavish living, children, drama

Leo Dislikes – Doing things safely, ordinary day to day living, small minded people, penny pinching and mean spiritedness

While I do like the finer things in life and don’t have a problem with kids (as long as they aren’t out of control)….I am a huge fan of doing things safely and having a routine. BUT I hate small minded people, penny pinching and mean spiritedness. So I would say that these are half way accurate. Perhaps being OCD isn’t a usual trait for a Leo since it says that Leo’s don’t like routine or doing things safely…but I thrive in those things.

What’s your sign?? Do you relate to it or do you think it is total crap? Please link up with Laura and I and let us know!!! I left the link up opened for a few days so that you still have time to get your posts ready! I can’t wait to learn more about you all through this.

    I definitely think I can mostly relate to my sign. I have some things that are off, like you do and I can definitely agree with the full moon thing, lol. This was such a cool and different link up!!

    I don’t think i’ve known anyone who is a leo until NOW!!! hehe. I’m a textbook Libra–very indecisive, but not popular or outgoing like we supposedly are.

    My sister’s also a Leo, but I feel like very little of this post describes her. Our grandmother always used to tell her it was obvious she was a Leo because of how wild her hair was (really thick and wavy/frizzy). Sooo… I guess people find different ways to relate!

    Did you ever check out the Sex Signs book? And if so, what did you think?

  • Reply Laura August 19, 2015 at 7:48 am

    Haha!! I love that your sign actually identifies with the low bullshit tolerance and low tolerance of small-mindedness! I also believe in moon cycles — full moons are usually my absolute worst days at work.

  • Reply Kelli August 19, 2015 at 8:05 am

    I don’t think I know a single Leo IRL, I like that you are stubborn at times just like my sign. I think it can be a great quality even though it’s always listed in the negative quality category.

  • Reply Marie August 19, 2015 at 9:00 am

    What a great post idea. I like how you admit you are stubborn. I totally stubborn as well but hate to admit it. I’m a Capricorn. I always know when it is a full moon, it brings out the craziness in people. Especially the ones I have to work with.

  • Reply kathy @ more coffee, less talky August 19, 2015 at 9:08 am

    i have to say, traits of a capricorn are spot on for me. when i googled it, all it said was “you’re a bitch”. haha kidding. it said i was practical, ambitious, wise, disciplined, pragmatic, pessimistic, stubborn and shy. all of these are true!

  • Reply Biana @blovedboston August 19, 2015 at 9:11 am

    My sister is a leo and totally fits a lot of these to a T – do you ever think you read these astrological signs and just pick up the behaviors it tells you you have?! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    lol sometimes signs really make me laugh! KC is a leo and he is the BIGGEST penny pincher I have ever met 😉

  • Reply Mattie August 19, 2015 at 9:32 am

    I LOVED writing my post for this! It was so much fun. As was reading yours. Off to read everyone else’s! And apparently all signs are stubborn? Haha. Leos, Scorpios, and Capricorns are at least.

  • Reply Courtney B August 19, 2015 at 9:57 am

    What a fun link up!! This really makes me want to look up my sign and get more info on it (crazy that I don’t already know!) Actually, I really should look up Eric’s sign, and Mia’s as well! Maybe that would help me put up with them a little better 😉 ha ha! I’m only half kidding!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis August 19, 2015 at 10:08 am

    I’m not big into horoscopes either but I love reading about my sign and seeing how it relates to me. Haven’t done that in a while.

  • Reply Kay R. August 19, 2015 at 10:09 am

    I was goign down my list wondering how so many people were posting about zodiac signs hahah. Im late to the game clearly! PS I am a Virgo and I LOVE leos!

  • Reply Katie August 19, 2015 at 10:19 am

    I think it’s fun that so many of the typical Leo traits relate to you! I def see it! I’m an Aries and feel like most of my personality lines up with that..passionate, stubborn, hard-working, loyal, enthusiastic…but I’m also way more introverted then it says I should be. Still fun to just think about! And oh yes, with the moon altering moods.

  • Reply Andrea @ Living On Cloud Nine August 19, 2015 at 10:54 am

    This is so fun! I used to be really into signs and astrology and write a paper on mine in college. I am an Aries through and through. You made me want to pull out that paper again! We really can learn a lot about ourselves and others! And well, some good fun! Happy Wednesday!!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph August 19, 2015 at 12:08 pm

    I don’t have a ton of buy in with my sign’s characteristics. My other signs (rising, moon, etc), I do!

  • Reply Laura @ Life with Lolo August 19, 2015 at 1:53 pm

    I always think it’s a little funny how people so often “fit” their sign. I definitely have a lot of Aries characteristics, but I don’t usually define myself by my sign either. This link up is so cool though to see where everyone fits!

  • Reply Stephanie August 19, 2015 at 3:39 pm

    My friend is a Leo – today is her birthday in fact 🙂 She’s most of the things you list, both good and bad, except I agree with your definition of pretentious and she doesn’t strike me as that. She loves nice things and travel and lavish details (and makes a lot of money!) but she’s never once acted like those things make her better than anyone else. She’s actually very involved and volunteers a lot. She has a big heart. Loves the drama though for sure 😉

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista August 19, 2015 at 4:15 pm

    Loved hearing more about Leo – and I am definitely loyal, but also a tad dramatic 😛

    […] through the currently existing links for What’s Your Sign and have decided to follow hostess Nadine’s approach. I’ll share with you characteristics attributed to my astrological sign and then […]

  • Reply alyssa August 19, 2015 at 10:09 pm

    AH I can’t believe I totally forgot to schedule a post for this! Life needs to calm down a bit so I can get myself together hah. But anyway I love it! I’m very true to my sign, and have been ever since before I knew what an Aries was supposed to “be like.” I don’t think everyone is greatly influenced by their sign, but sometimes they are and it’s just not as blatant or apparent.. but I think it’s really awesome to think about and ponder. And my best friend is a Leo, so cool points to you 😉

  • Reply Kerry August 21, 2015 at 9:59 pm

    It depends on the source but most characteristics of a Virgo is so spot on for me.
