What's your Rashee?

I don't remember how this started off but i spent a good amount of time yesterday, along with my two friends at home, reading through characteristics of our own sun signs, characteristics of people(ahem..,read men ;)) of other sun signs, love compatibility and so on. I know it sounds really dumb but let me tell you, it is an awesome way to pass time.
It first started off with our own signs, nodding our heads in agreement to most of the things that were said there, laughing out loud at certain things, trying to relate to the quirks and traits listed under our respective sun signs.
That is when we realized that we could even check which sun sign was most compatible to ours. To our dismay, each of us got just two or three signs that were compatible out of the whole lot! Narrows down the options so much more if you believe in all of it! There were admonitory statements like "This is a doubtful connection" and "Friendship may be the best idea here." :P. What a laugh i have had when i read the latter statement! Adding to the bliss was the fact that I had one extra compatible sun sign compared to my friends' ;) How lucky, no? :P

To get a picture of what i am saying, you should read Linda Goodman's analysis of sun signs in a detailed manner- How to recognise an aries person, the aries man, the aries woman, the aries boss, child and so on for all sun signs. I remember reading it in college but revisiting it was nothing less than a re-revelation to me. It was but natural for me to start analyzing the people around me based on what was written under their sun sign. If you find it interesting, sit down and read through the whole thing. Then spend some time dwelling on it, you might even start thinking that all that is said in the book is true. Maybe, studying people on the basis of their sun sign will turn out to be a fun activity to pass your time at college or work.
But the flip side to believing in it would be that, like me, all of you will be left with too many fingers on a hand to count the signs compatible to yours. You may get cursed by your room mate that your future husband should turn out to be of a sign most incompatible with yours. And you will be guarded against giving your heart to someone who is of a dissonant sign( i know idu swalpa over aaithu ;)). But again, to be very sure, I won't miss asking the charming guy who comes along- What's your Rashee? first. After i have asked that, i might as well ask, What's your Gotra? And then only comes the cup of coffee ;)

    Nice Blog.....
    I suggest you take Jung's Personality Tests for more understanding of oneself(The test is supposed to be scientifically designed).
    Man's curiosity to learn more about himself will never end. Astrologers have got it made for life........

  2. Yes it always fun and a great a time pass to read sun signs, as we all believe in it and it indicates something which we all know abt ourselves which we fail to recognize it in our day to day activities.. so we ending up nodding our head while reading it..:D
    And u finding a guy wrt sun sings and Gotra and all.. a tough task.. But still my best wishes are with u... ;)

  3. Waah! By the time you interview so much, both of you would have lost interest in having coffee! Nice Blog btw.. I don't know about passing time with sun signs... but this surely is a good pass-time :D

  4. ha ha ... nice post :) i just read that linda's research :P many things what she has said for an aries man appeared true for me :P and was really funny as you said.. :)

  5. Agree with Mahit, by the time you are done with your Rashee-Gotra interview, "coffee taNNgagatte". So better plan well & have a cup of cold coffee(without ice-cream) each time:P

    PJ's apart, sakkat hilarious post kane. Now, I too have to find some time to read Linda's take on my rashee ,though trust me I don't buy astrology/rashee phala..:P
    Finally Aparna "voLLe charming hudga sigli ninge":P

  6. @Aditya
    Long time! I took the test. One lenghthy questionnaire it was. It called me the "Provider":P

    Thanks for all your wishes ;) Need a lot of them.

    Thanks! If compatibility is there, then interest for coffee after that will also be there :P. At least, thats what i am hoping!
