Italicized text is theirs, and is unaltered. Can't resist commenting, though.

Rising Sign is in 04 Degrees Cancer
Very sensitive by nature, you prefer to be in your own familiar surroundings. Cautious and conservative, you make changes in your life only very slowly, if at all. You do not open up easily to strangers. Friendships are made for life, however -- once given, your trust is forever. Your mother, your home as a child and your early family life in general are very important to you. You are also very sentimental. When you feel self- confident, you are gentle, giving and protective of the needs of others. But when you feel insecure or threatened, you become overly sensitive to criticism, shy, withdrawn and moody. You have a strong need for security -- in the sense that you are being loved, nourished and protected.

You know, that's actually not far off. If I'm your friend, you have to go a pretty damned long way to shake me (though I take a long, long time to reach a point where someone is a friend). And changes in my life... "slowly" is an understatement. I have to be pretty much completely miserable before I actually sit down and make a change. I wouldn't say I'm terribly sentimental, though, although that could just be because my associations with the word are all pretty saccharine and Hallmark-card like.

Sun is in 01 Degrees Leo.
More than a bit of a showoff, you love to be the center of attention! But others do not usually mind because they tend to enjoy your genuine warmth and affection. Very spirited and willful, proud and self-important at times, you demand your own way. You are quite honest, however, and the respect of others is very important to you. You never compromise yourself and you pursue your goals with persistence and dedication. Your regal presence and demeanor draws you to positions of leadership and authority. But beware of being overly hardheaded, domineering, ostentatious or patronizing or you will lose the goodwill and admiration that you enjoy. Very theatrical, you live life on a grand scale wherever and whenever possible. Your strength and energy vitalizes those who come in contact with you.

I wouldn't say I live life on a grand scale, and my energy is, erm, not obvious in real life, though it seems to come out on the web.

Me? Self-important and demanding my own way? A bit of a showoff? Nah, never. ;)

Moon is in 16 Degrees Aries.
High-spirited and courageous, you are a fighter when your emotions are aroused. The degree of force and drive that you can bring to any effort sometimes surprises others. You have hair-trigger reactions to specific stimuli and tend to "let it all hang out." You sometimes act before you think and do things on the spur of the moment, and that sometimes gets you into trouble. Your moods change quickly -- you have quite a temper, but you don't hold grudges. Very independent, with an extremely strong and forceful personality, you are known for being impulsive, careless, reckless, foolhardy, rash and daring.

Not high-spirited in the least, and "let it all hang out" isn't really in my vocabulary. And no one knows me as "impulsive, careless, reckless, foolhardy, rash and daring." I do, however fight, I don't hold grudges (much), and I'm about as independent as you get.

Mercury is in 18 Degrees Leo.
You are usually quite convinced that your own ideas are correct and you enjoy persuading others that they are. At times, you are very stubborn and proud of your beliefs and principles, and you get very defensive when they are challenged. You appreciate truth and honesty -- you practice it yourself and expect it in others. You have good talent for organizing, directing and planning. You delight in being asked for your advice and counsel.

That's just frighteningly dead-on.

Venus is in 13 Degrees Virgo.
You express your love and affection through selfless service to people or causes. You have a tendency to underestimate yourself and doubt your self-worth. This is very demeaning and should be avoided -- learn to love yourself as well as you do others. Your standards of perfection are very high -- you are attracted to relationships based on duty and responsibility. You are supercritical of yourself and others and, at times, prefer to be alone rather than deal with any imperfections in yourself or in those with whom you might relate.

Unless devotion to fanfic is a cause, I'm not much in the cause department. An I'm a pretty cold fish, as far as people are concerned. I do doubt my self-worth quite a bit, though, and my standards of perfection are insanely high. And I'm supercritical. And being alone is my natural state, which gets me in trouble if I don't want to end up an amputated branch on the family tree.

Mars is in 03 Degrees Leo.
You are a very proud person. Strong, bold, courageous and self-possessed, you love to be the one to initiate significant actions. When people expect a lot of you, you respond positively and will work hard in order to maintain their respect. But when your dignity or pride is threatened, you tend to become sarcastic, arrogant and domineering. Try not to take any challenge or resistance that you meet as a personal affront. You are very stubborn about your right to live your life according to your own principles.

Most of this is pretty true, though I don't tend to like to initiate significant actions, largely because of that self-worth thing. If I ask someone to go somewhere, I'm always sure that it's only pity that makes them accept, and they don't really want to be there, ergo, I'm only really comfy when it's someone else's idea. As far as projects go, I'm usually sure that if I'm allowed to try something, it's not because anyone's enthusiastic, but because they feel sorry for me. So again, I like to take someone else's initial action and run with it. I like being second, or at least feel more natural there.

Jupiter is in 27 Degrees Libra.
You are generally good at balancing opinions and judging issues, but you tend to be indecisive when it comes to making up your own mind. You are objective and quite concerned with fair play and justice. But, when it comes to yourself, you are so aware that whatever you do might upset the apple cart that you often choose to compromise rather than do anything that might make you lonely or vulnerable. Relationships are very important to you -- you learn about yourself and grow through observing yourself interacting with others. Your aesthetic tastes are refined, but expansive and expensive.

Metza-metza. No problem making up my mind--judgmental bitch-from-hell here. I have, to my shame, made compromises for the sake of social comfort. Not huge ones, but little ones. Remus-y type things, mostly.

Saturn is in 21 Degrees Taurus.
Complete freedom of choice makes you ill at ease. You must have a firm, ordered, secure foundation in your life in order to feel comfortable. You do not adapt easily and tend to fear the new and untried. You constantly fear that you do not have enough (love, property, material things, etc.) and this makes you tend toward being selfish, withdrawn and stingy. If you try to surround yourself with supportive people in your environment, you will become more emotionally self-supporting.

Mostly pretty true. Job-hunting times are excruciating for me, and I hate and loathe relationship-hunting, hence my undying distaste for rotating door romance fics. (See dislike of change, above.)

Uranus is in 05 Degrees Libra.
You, as well as your entire peer group, have a very free, unstable and unconventional approach to relationships and emotional commitments. You will be attracted to experiments in marriage and shared lifestyles. Personal freedom is more important to you than entangling emotional bonds. In the realm of art and aesthetics, you are attracted to the bizarre, shocking and unusual.

:gets up from laughing on the floor at the concept of "experiments in marriage and shared lifestyles":

Okay, no. Huh-uh. See above on relationships and stability. I'm looking for a white picket fence, a husband to kiss good morning and good night, and 2.5 (or more) children. And a nice, old Tudor style house with a big oak tree in the back yard, and maybe a stream, with raspberries growing wild on the banks.

That said, like most people I knew who grew up in the 80s, I have a tendency to cobble together family units out of friendship groups, and those groups have almost no relationship to gender groups, which is a bit unconventional if you don't happen to be a Gen Xer. If you are a Gen Xer, you're probably scratching your head and going, "That's weird?" Yup--believe it or not, there are people who believe what Billy Crystal said in When Harry Met Sally about men and women not being able to be friends. :boggles: And in art, I do enjoy surrealism.

Neptune is in 28 Degrees Scorpio.
You, and your entire generation, are extremely interested in anything deep and mysterious. You will explore and idealize the benefits that can accrue from the study of the occult, healing and psychology. You are willing to experiment with substances like drugs in order to push your understanding of your inner being to the extreme.

Nope. Not particularly true of the generation, either. We have fun with our mysteries, but GenX is pretty darned practical, in the long run. And I've noticed a rather sharp skepticism about psychology.

Pluto is in 25 Degrees Virgo.
For your entire generation, this will be a time when profound changes in society's attitude toward work, duty and responsibility will be initiated. Radical changes in attitudes toward personal health and general nutrition will be promulgated and gain wide acceptance and practice.

Well, that seems true enough. Not very shocking, as there's been a long time to observe it, but true enough.

N. Node is in 03 Degrees Pisces.
You're attracted to others who need your assistance. You seem to go out of your way to form relationships with those who are weak, sick, injured, addicted or troubled in some way or other. At your best you can indeed provide the relief that others need. But at times you can be victimized by those who would prey on your good nature and take advantage of you. This can lead to all sorts of negative situations -- make sure that those you assist are truly worthy of your time, energy and commitment. A little enlightened self-protectiveness on your part can make your life work much, much smoother!

Not even close.

Oh, okay, yes, I like someone who needs me around, but not someone who's needy. Victimhood is not remotely attractive to me. Someone who's strong and fighting is more interesting.
