Here's a few examples: When it comes to full hair, Aries take the cake! Virgo takes the cake with consistent look. You can look at a pic of a virgo now and a pic of that same virgo like 20 yrs from now and the virgo will look almost exactly the same! Sagittarius resembles horses and Leo women resemble reindeer. Leos hav noses set high on their face. Contrast that with say, a taurus nose that is more like a bull. Leos are tradtionaly the lion so they also look mane-y. Leo's take great pride in their appearance and dont lke to be outdone or copied.
Genetics has A LOT (nearly everything) to do with your appearance, but anyways...

1) The Aries I know aren't particularly hairy.
2) My mom is a Virgo. Consistent look? I don't think so! She's changed a lot over the years. The same about one of my uncles (on my father's side).
3) I'm a Sagittarius. Where would I resemble a horse? I'm curious! I'm not horse-faced btw lol.
4) My SO is a Taurus and his nose is nothing like a bull's!
5) I know Leos who are terribly insecure, not particularly proud in any way, etc.
6) My dad and I look quite alike despite not sharing Zodiac signs. There are several Sagittarius in my mother's side of family and they look nothing like me. Most of them are much shorter than I am and their eyes darker, facial features and body shape all different.

You need to read more.

I think it's 100% likely that you look like your dad because you inherited his genes, rather than his sun-sign.
We are, after all produced using sperm from our father and an egg from our mother.
Genetic material.

I don't automatically dismiss astrology as bunkum, but I'm afraid every single point you make is in direct contradiction to established and proven science, rather than theoretical astrology which appears to have no basis in fact.

To say "genetics has nothing to do with it" is just frankly ridiculous.

Sorry.

I think I'll leave this thread now, I cannot contribute further.

Go to the book store look for the astrology section and do as much reading as possible. Once you learn about it, listen to your inner voice. It's basically your sixth sense, that'll guide you through life.

The easiest sign for me to spot by their negative traits would be Taurus people. Just look for the bull.

Their mannerisms or their appearance? I'm not sure how this is possible, but you could always take a peek at the "what do you look like" thread on here and start tossing out guesses.

As a Sagittarian, the only negative trait I have is the sometimes inability to decide whether to sleep standing up in a stall or laying down in a bed. And only is that a negative when visiting people overnight.

Here is the tricky thing - a person isn't necessarily ruled by their Sun Sign, but rather by whatever signs and influences in their chart are the strongest. So I'm not going by Sun sign as much as I am by what the person was most strongly influenced by.

This is all personal experience.

Aries - Exciting and very masculine, very alpha male, but not too romantic.

Taurus - hugely entertaining and adorable but hard to get close to sometimes. Also, scarily possessive and with bad tempers at times.

Gemini - very flighty and hard to pin down. Moves around constantly. Fun to flirt with though.

Cancer - extremely shy and sensitive. Hard to get close to. Very distrustful. (But hands down the funniest sign).

Leo - way too self-involved. Need a lot of attention and assurance.

Virgo - way too picky.

Scorpio - very controlling, possessive, and nuts.

Sagittarius - the one sign that I do not, to my knowledge, have much experience with.

Capricorn - very uptight, too obsessed with looking good in the public eye and obtaining success.

Aquarius - a little goofy and strange.

Pisces - the worst, sorry. Dreamers who live in a fantasyland.

Remember, this is MY personal experience. Don't get offended, you asked for the negative traits.

I'm a libra and the worst trait is being indecisive. I've found this to be with all Librans. Very submissive which could be good or bad according to your taste.

JennaKendal - Sagitarius (my ex husband) These people ---the ones I"VE MET ONLY --- have a roundabout way of being controlling emotionally.

This is spoken ONLY from personal experience - I refuse to make assumptions about anyone else so please do not take offense. Man, this thread is a like treading on eggshells lol

Not really missing out at all.

Astrology is an old, even ancient, "pseudo-science". But, there is another science that goes back much farther, and is far more interesting. Old enough, and unknown enough that it is not been completely deciphered yet.
