Ah, Facebook provides endless distractions. I love the little oddball memes and amusements. Especially ones that might link astrology or your birth month to some trait. Or one that shows your zodiac sign's ideal Thanksgiving meal. They're like potato chips, hard to stop at just one.
A recent one I came across was titled "Your Body's Weak Spot According to Astrology." My mother actually studied astrology. A lot. She did charts, listened to astrology shows on the radio (I guess today she'd be into podcasts on the topic), and would buy books.
They were fun to read through. I guess it kind of gives you a different mirror view of yourself. Oooh, I'm a Taurus and like luxury and comfort? Yes, please! My colors are earth brown? Hmmm... Not so sure there.
But the weak spots made me think of my childhood. I'm a Taurus, and the throat and neck were my body parts of concern. I had lots of sore throats as a kid, possibly due to stress, because I had some anxiety. My mother would invariably mention that my sore throats were connected to my Taurean nature. I'm not sure about that, but I liked it at the time. I still like it today, but for sentimental reasons. And I like oddball trivia.
According to this chart, though, each sign's weak spots are as follows:
I also can't help but wonder what Fiona (the character based heavily on my opinionated and outspoken mother) would say about this. I may put her on an astrology kick and have her comment on people. I'm highly amused imagining her going: "Oh, she's an Aquarius all right. Look at those fat, swollen ankles!" Someone is an ugly pedicure is sure to be a Pisces by her logic.
I'm both delighted and frightened imagining what she might say.
