Thank You Ms Anonymous - you've made my day with your comment below informing me my birthsign for Richard was wrong - I stand corrected...with glee, because you see....this news led me to the following at Wikipedia. He no longer shares the same zodiac sign w/my dear son(born on Aug 31st) BUT our signs are compatible Sagittarius & Leo. WooHoo!...actually explains why after ignoring all actors for at least a decade suddenly one became inscrutably interesting...seemed to share attitudes although living on separate continents. Who ever said astrology is silly....certainly not me. lol ;) Well, even if I did insinuate that yesterday, this new information changes everything - now it's almost biblical,,,err,,,not a good analogy since I believe that's fiction(along w/all other so-called holy books--Anyone know where Simon Rushdie has been successfully hiding out;) Anyway, from now on will definitely pay closer attention to astrological readings.
(The bio I first referenced must've looked at the Hindu dates below??)
Leo (astrology): From Wikipedia...
Leo the Lion♌ - Zodiac Symbol Lion
Duration (Tropical, Western) 22 July – 23 August (2010, UTC)
Duration (Sidereal, Hindu) 14 August – 7 September (2010, UTC)
Zodiac Element Fire
Leo (♌) is the fifth astrological sign of the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Leo. In astrology, Leo is considered to be a "masculine", positive (extrovert) sign. It is also considered a fire sign and is one of four fixed signs. Leo is ruled by the Sun. Being the fifth sign of the zodiac, Leo has been associated with the astrological fifth house.
Individuals born when the Sun was in this sign are considered Leo individuals. The Sun is in Leo roughly from July 23 to August 22.
Compatibilities: Generally, Leo is considered compatible with same element signs, Sagittarius, Aries and Leo itself. These signs share a fiery demeanor and are believed to relate with each other on that merit.
There are many variables that determine compatibility in astrology, such as birth dates, birth months, birth years, position of a sign within the Sun, the Moon, Stars. The signs listed as compatible with Leo do not reflect an individual profile or individual reading as interpreted within astrology, but rather reflect a general guideline and reference to compatibility as dictated by variables such as Qualities and Elements within the Zodiac. The branch of astrology dealing with interpersonal compatibilities is called Synastry.
Zodiac trivia - was pleased to find Winston Churchill and Walt Disney were also Sagittarians.
**My kingdom for a Libra....it's the only zodiac sign that hasn't voted as yet in the poll....interesting.** (Update: Libra has finally joined the rest of us in the Zodiac poll..welcome aboard!)
