I informed my boyfriend today that he is an earth sign (Taurus) like me (Virgo). No, he says, I'm an air sign (Gemini). I briefly try to explain the difference between the sidereal and tropical zodiacs. And it's not small. It's about a -25 day change, that is, your actual sign may be the one before it..
My husband is a fire sign (Sagittarius). I didn't need astrology to tell me that I'm dealing with 2 different personalities. Hubs is more practical and plans things out and bf kind of takes things as they happen. Hubs is quiet and bf is boisterous. Me? I find I adapt to whoever I'm with. Seems that they each bring out a different part of me.
