Unique

09 Feb

Sin of Passion by Yoni Danziger

I don’t believe in popular astrology.

Those beguiling horoscope predictions in the newspaper.  It is hard to accept that one in twelve people will have a similar day to mine.

Though I admit that when I study the supposed character traits of men of my star sign, I cannot help but be just a little seduced.

Dominant that I am, it would seem that I could not have been born under any other.  I am described almost perfectly.  I briefly nod my head in surprise and say ‘I am he’.

But then I look beneath the obvious headlines – the ‘leader’, the ‘passionate’, the ‘determined’ – and I discover as many things that I am not as those that I am.

And then I find I am wonderfully comforted by my own singularity, the random creation of my self, the uncertain, unpredictable, uncharted nature of my fate.

Much more than that, I love knowing that you too are utterly unique.

    I believe there’s some truth in all that astrology but at the same time, i don’t really think it works for all of the people at the same time.

      I think many people need to believe in something. Hence religion.

        I believe in love-if that is considered as a religion, then I am a strict follower of it.

            I personally cannot imagine myself living in a world in which love and true beauty don’t exist.

    Once or twice a week…I’ll glance at my fate as a taurean…and if i’m satisfied…that what it reads…is true…I snap a photo…I have snapped two in the last year. As for the rest …i skim through the others signs …which aren’t quite right either..although much more exciting sometimes. Uniqueness seems a rarity…anymore.

    I predict you’ve recently had a sense of déjà vu about a particular person or opportunity? Is it a good feeling, If so, then do your best to maintain that sense of hopefulness and joy, because it is a sign that something wonderful is about to happen for you – something that will have a huge positive impact on your future. This person or this opportunity will be something very, very special, as long as you allow it to play out naturally. Don’t worry about it. Don’t try to manipulate it. Just let it happen.

      It is a lovely prediction, but not at all so. Nothing from my past, or even from my recent present.
      But thank you for your kind thoughts and words

    You’re not a Leo by any chance, are you?
    I don’t take astrology too seriously but seem to fit the typical Aquarius personality traits though I think so many other factors influence who we become.

    I am not a believer in Astrology or religion, though it is good to have faith in someone/thing. I am especially moved and inspired by your writing and the layers of beauty there. This lovely piece is no exception.
    Thank you Mr. D.

    I choose which stars to spend my energy believing… Numerology intrigues my interest, as its more honed to personalized dates. But again, I decide which to absorb as mine…

        Terrible, no. Questionable… Perhaps. You must believe in your own existence. Your path is yours to determine, as is each of ours. It’s the judgements that we attach to either believing or not, that alter our experiences upon our journeys.

          Smiles. I certainly believe in my own existence and the power to navigate a course. And yet there are so many other factors outside of my control that I must sail with the recognition that anything might happen – knowing that my response to those events determine who I am and what I feel.

    Beautifully written. I wholeheartedly agree. I would add that I think that they add so many traits as to generalize so that everyone will fall within a few of the attributes. I nominated you for a Beautiful Blogger Award. I love reading your work so much and it is so inspiring to read such eloquent poetry. If you wish to accept this award then visit http://janineyork.wordpress.com/2013/02/09/beautiful-blogger-award/. Thanks for blogging!

      Thank you. You are right.

      And thank you too for nominating me for an award. I really appreciate it and am honoured. Yet I am not really one for awards. I am truly grateful though.

    Unique… Requires a very special recipe of a man or woman. While it’s amazing to be found unique, it frightens many to take a chance on the unknown, the different. Aren’t there days you wish you could be ordinary, instead of extraordinary?

    P.S. Obviously the piece was well written and thought provoking, hence all the thoughts lol 🙂 I’d stand in the shadow of your words any day, Sir. Amazing!!! 🙂

    it is very interesting to get your chart or someone you know chart read. The descriptions of the different signs within a person’s astrological sign are very unique like you say and are usually for the most part very distinct and correct (depending on where you get your info from) I always enjoy reading into people’s signs (the sun, moon and ascending). It’s a wonderful tool 🙂
