Why I Strongly Agree With My Astrology Sign

Just as a disclaimer, I do not read my horoscope every day and believe when it says I will find the love of my life or have a big fight with one of my friends. I do not believe that everyone born between March 20th and April 19th is strong willed, independent, optimistic, moody, impulsive, short-tempered, and enthusiastic. I just believe that I can really relate to all of those qualities and I liked having something like that to compare other people to.

My aunt and I have always liked our birthdays, well, like is putting it mildly. We absolutely love our birthdays. We are both Aries (she was born on April 2 and I was born on April 15) and both seem to share the sign's main qualities. I am very moody and can be short-tempered and impulsive in a lot of ways I am not proud of, but it makes up who I am. I am very independent but I am also dependent in a lot of ways; I don't like ordering food or doing anything where I have to talk to strangers really. I am fiercely optimistic which can be good and bad; I always assume the best about people and sometimes let them walk all over me. But in a good way, I can see the humanity in a lot of people when others may be blinded by a stereotype or the type of person we are talking about. I am very strong willed, but because I am also moody I do not always follow up with my goals like I want to.

I like being able to identify with my astrological sign in these ways because it seems like it groups people together. I may be a bit more obsessed with my birthday than other people, but I like knowing that people who were born around the same time I was all have some qualities in common, or all have the possibility to have these qualities in common.

I also love my birthday month (no you didn't read that wrong, I like to celebrate my birthday month, week, weekend, day, etc.) and being born in April means that my birthstone is a diamond. This fact has not been lost on me because it only feeds my ego. Having the most valuable birthstone, a fiery attitude, and a strong will sometimes gets me in trouble but I love it all the same.

I don't know if anyone, but my aunt, will ever really understand my love for my birthday and how it's not completely a selfish thing. I just love celebrating it and being around all my friends and family. It's not about getting presents or money or anything, I just like the feeling that one day is technically dedicated to me. For anyone who loves their birthday or feels connected to their astrological sign in the same way, I know how you feel.

Fun (or not so fun) Facts about April 15:

-The day the Titanic sunk (started sinking on April 14 and actually sank on April 15)

-The day Lincoln died (he was shot April 14 and died on April 15)

-Tax Day

-The day of the Boston Marathon Bombings

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month.
