If it wasn’t so strange asking people “What’s your sign?” it would be the first question I ask. I think “Hello, how are you?” is more appropriate so I have to ease into it. Most people don’t pay much attention to horoscopes or elemental signs, but it helps me to understand people.

Of the signs, of course Scorpio is my favorite, my middle child is one. I said to her before dropping her off at school, “Have an amazing day Scorpio, you’re a diamond.” She just rolled her eyes at me in typical Scorpio fashion.

Of the signs, I think they are the most interesting and the most misunderstood, born Oct. 23 through Nov. 22.

I went out with a friend on Saturday night, and then I asked, “When’s your birthday?” It was Nov. 7 or something close to that and I realized he was indeed a Scorpio. Sunday night I went with my cousin to Menards because I most definitely cannot lift sheets of dry wall. We start working on my house, ripping down trim, painting and I had to know, “Wait, when’s your birthday?”

“Nov. 12.”

Another Scorpio. Monday came, I get to work to tell this awesome lady Diane that I have been surrounded by Scorpios and I am loving life. Can you guess her sign?!

My advice: find yourself a Scorpio friend!
