Do you believe in astrology and the sign compatibility aspect?

@beyond, If we’re speaking of compassion by definition (feeling empathy for those stricken by misfortune), I have a thought. Maybe finding strength in compassion isn’t the the most suiting way to put it, for you?

Firstly, I don’t think showing compassion always gives way to future suffering. I do believe sometimes it will, though. Does that make me an asshole too? I don’t think so. Don’t even think it makes you an asshole! I think it’s called being realistic and knowledgeable.

Don’t get me wrong, compassion and empathy are highly valued virtues of mine. I agree with you, though. Sadly, being compassionate (too compassionate) can be harmful.

BUT, at the root of it all, I believe it’s not that there’s no strength compassion…it’s just the ability to tolerate assholes who don’t comply with genuine compassion/empathy and the know how to handle those people – all while still maintaining the same level of compassion you would have in the upmost best part of your being. So, you are not the asshole for thinking there’s mo strength in compassion! I think, though, finding strength in compassion = the ability to do right and keep doing right even if the world around you is littered with scumbags.

@ojai, Haha, I agree. Empathy and compassion allows me to keep calm when people are behaving like assholes, cause I can see it’s just a reaction to inner issues. So I react by feeling sorry for them. But on the more destructive side, I have sometimes found it difficult to separate other people’s emotions from my own, I’ve been carrying around other people’s grief to the extent of putting my own life on hold. Then again, this is a trait I kind of inherited from my parents. Might not have anything to do with astrology at all.

@ojai, Thanks for summing it up. And thanks for asking me how do I ‘gauge’ compassion, everyone interprets it differently. Maybe the strength doesn’t come from being compassionate, but from acknowledging the weakness that comes with it. I think compassion should just come in the form of an action, not just feeling it.

@ARCANUS, I also think that it’s like this for everyone, but I’m the same sign so I don’t know. Maybe even if it is, pisces just put more thought on it? “Pisces and Temperament:
The Pisces personality is hard to pin down, it is very mysterious and elusive.” Well, shit. I like to read on and learn about such things, but sometimes I get frustrated that the sources really aren’t written with a little more imagination. And when the source isn’t enough for me, I happily become my own.

Sometimes it feels weird being born on a cusp. Especially when you’re in between fire and water signs.

I am nothing like my star sign says I am meant to be, so no.

I am a strong believer. Pisces at heart <3 i feel that it does have a placebo effect though. You are what your mind believes. Don't let the negative traits stop you from being the person you are but be conscious that they are there (:

I don’t know. I mean, personality seems oddly predictable by astrology, but compatibility? Well, I generally have trouble getting along with people I “should” like and get along best with the ones I “should” clash with.

For example, I’m a typical Water sign (Scorpio), but my best friend is a typical Aries, lol.

I am a Leo and everything they say Leos are I am. I’m friends with almost all signs but strongest with fire signs, one of my closest friends/ possible future significant other has the same birthday as me and we are almost exactly the same person. But I do think that mostly when people read their star signs they associate with the similarities and discard what they don’t see, also the characteristics seem very vague so I think there is a lot of confirmation bias.

HAHAHA NOPE

It’s a placebo, it only affects you as much as you think it will.

When you’re born doesn’t have any meaning to your compatibility with other people.
