Is Your Sign Superstitious?

Astrology sheds light on what every horoscope sign fears most

Friday the 13th traditionally gets a bad rap among the superstitious. And of course, to some Astrology itself is a superstition, too, isn't it? What-ever. Let's celebrate this Friday, May 13 by exploring the fears of every horoscope sign.

If you are superstitious, you can use this as a guide to what your sign should avoid! 

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Ever the pioneer, Aries loves to be first and hates having his or her view blocked by anyone. Sitting behind another person in a theater might be considered bad luck or, perhaps, getting caught on the slow line at the supermarket. When you see someone bolting out of the store rather than wait five minutes for a cashier, it's probably an Aries.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

No one likes life's sensual delights more than a Taurus. This sign's dominant superstition involves the need to have ice cream in the freezer at all times. A lack of chocolate might be particularly terrifying, motivating even the most laid-back Bull to get off the couch, rush out of the house and buy some premium creamy dessert to avoid catastrophe.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Many chatty Geminis are convinced that if they don't use up all their cell phone minutes every month, they will be struck with terribly bad luck. Rollover plans are definitely a no-no as they can encourage a lax attitude when it comes to calling friends, family members and new acquaintances to discuss last night's episode of Grey's Anatomy.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are the great collectors of the zodiac. They keep objects from childhood that most people would have tossed decades earlier. It's bad luck, a good number of them might presume, to let go of your junior high school sweatshirt even though it's full of holes and the building was torn down way back in 1975.

Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)

Leos love to be noticed ... and remembered ... and revered. It's not only considered bad form to forget one's name, even though you met them for two minutes at a convention of 10,000 people, but considered to be very bad luck for the Leo. Most Lions do whatever it takes to burn their name in your brain to avoid this danger.

Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)

Virgos are specialists in superstition, although they usually claim that they're just being practical. An interruption in their carefully calibrated routine can ruin a day. If items aren’t put away in exactly the right place or if their hair or clothes aren’t perfect, this is no mere inconvenience, it can turn the most logical Virgo into an illogical mess.

Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

Librans require peace and harmony and will sometimes short-change themselves (especially in relationships) to keep others happy. Many of them are convinced that if they get even the tiniest extra bit of love, attention, money, food or fun than their partner that they are doomed and will be punished severely for three lifetimes.

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

Scorpios are the sheriffs of superstition, the marshals of metaphysics and know that everything counts and will either work for you or against you. The shadow of a flying bird seen against a house, driving behind a 1983 Buick convertible or even catching the same Will and Grace rerun on two different channels can all be dangerous.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)

Sagittarians love to take risks, but might be the most superstitious sign of all. They often have a string of them, like no petting of dogs on big days, no green worn on weekends, or never checking luggage on trips to Hawaii. Of course, stuffing ginormous carry-on bags is considered perfectly normal and good luck, too.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)

Capricorns don't have time for the foolishness of superstitions. In fact, they think that it's bad luck to be with a superstitious person and will do their best to avoid them. Unhappily for them, most of them marry Pisces who turn their homes into something that looks like a cross between St. Peter's Cathedral and a Buddhist temple.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

Aquarians think that following rules is bad luck. If they're in the 10 item or less line with nine items, they'll seek out two more things and return with 11 things. It's clear that filing income taxes, going to the dentist more than once a year, or carrying ID when driving is only going to get them into some serious trouble.

Pisces (Feb 19 - March 20)

Pisces are superstitious about rainy days ... and sunny ones, about stepping on cracks in the sidewalk or stepping between them. Consistency is the biggest danger of all, so changing their superstitions according to the phases of the Moon, local barometric pressure or the PH of their bathroom water is common.

Sad to say Rebecca but your list is 90% correct. My oldest Grandson Chris, is a Virgo and f ights his mild OCD. My youngest Grandson Brandon, is a Pisces and discovered beer when he was 3 years old. He is now 19 and has been an AA Member for 10 years. Yes, the do have AA for kids. My oldest Grandaughter is a Leo and she is a perfect example of Narcissistic Personality Disorder. But she has great parents who constantly remind her that the sun doesn't rise and set on her commandment. My youngest grandaughter is a Aquarius and she is convinced that people are out to "get" her. Of course have an older siser who has a Leo Sun Sign, a Leo rising sign and a Leo moon sign might have something to do with her feeling that she is always beening picked on and that no one cares about what she thinks. HELP US ALL WE ARE LIVING WITH A TRIPLE LEO who really does think that we should all bow to her royal lioness Queen of the St of OR.

I and my husband are Capricorns and we have finally at the ages of 72 for Dave and 66 for me decided that the family is going to have to give us the respect we deserve. Many family member claim we are Sadistic because we require some resonsibility from these slackers who always expect us to bail them out of their personal, financial and emotional problems.

So there you have my family listed by sun sign, except for our 14 year old lion queen who is a Triple Leo. And yes the triple Leo did tell me that God always does whatever she tells Him. I kind of pity her future husband.
