Do you believe in horoscopes?

I don't. 
Well, actually, I don't really give them much thought. Never have and don't seem to have an inclination to start now.

However, have met an interesting person lately and following their advice I've visisted a certain website and got my personal portrait painted out for me. 
I must admit, I do agree with the vast majority of statements that I've read about myself. Am tempted to enter different data and see how the new one would fit me..

ALERT: This has the potential of being a mighty personal note. Do NOT read on if you don't want to meet the real me ;)

So, here it goes.
The exhibitionist in me is glad to present: A guide to Magu's psyche. 
With comments by Magu.

You were born with both the Sun and the Moon in Virgo. This should grant you a harmonious relationship between your inner life and your outer life. You are essentially hard-working, and you delight in giving service to others. Essentially I am hard working, although in many cases my laziness wins over. Once I start on a job, however, I do dedicate my time and energy till I get the desired effect. It is also true that any professional career not having to do with people holds no interest for me and I thoroughly enjoy being of help to others. No, unfortunately house chores don't belong in the group of services I like to undertake for others.  Your constant preoccupation with detail makes you a most careful worker, especially in tasks that require exactitude and acute observation. True. I do have an eye for details and even during this internship I've been told many times over how observant and discerning I am. I might not be so careful with the tasks I don't consider too relevant or important, never at work though. With the practicality of the Virgo sign, you enjoy sensible tasks and do not try to avoid them, especially if they involve constant change of detail. Very much so. I hate doing things just for the sake of doing them, try to avoid things that do not interest or challenge me in one way or another. I get frustrated with such, believe them a waste of time. I do have to learn patience in this field, however. Not every task we're given is going to make sense to us or inspire our minds.
You like privacy but not to an abnormal extent. Yes. I've always been a rather talkative and open person, had no problems talking about my life. About the happenings in my life, not necessarily my feelings related to those. I used to be a lot more secretive when it comes to how I feel about things, have been gradually working on that with some friends over the past few years. Also, travelling and talking to strangers has the tendency of openning you up a whole lotta more. It might have to do with the intensity of short acquaintances or the simple truth that you'll never see most of them again, thus can allow yourself to be completely frank - no threat of hurting their or your mutual friends' feelings. Sexually you are inquisitive and curious, but afraid of losing yourself in the ocean of eros. You love to work continuously in daily routines, especially when new tasks do not completely alter the style in which you are used to operating. Hmm, not too sure about this one. I generally suck at routines, have a hard time acquiring one and then an even worse time sticking to them. Then again, I say I don't like routines but for the longest time my life was so full of extracurricular activities and scheduled classes that I wouldn't survive without one. Plus, dance routines are among my favourite things in the world! As a basic Virgoan, you are humanitarian and broad-minded, without going beyond presently accepted social standards. I'd like to believe I'm humanitarian, although the sad truth is even though I notice a lot and care about how misfortunate others are, I rarely take any action. This calls for a change as well. When it comes to broad-mindedness - yes, I do tolerate and accept a lot of differences, however some of them are a no-no when it comes to my personal relationships with others. But that also has to do with very strong moral rules that I've left my parents' house with. You are prudent and like to plan ahead over short periods of time. I am prudent and like that about myself. Planning and me would make for a very long story. I like to have general projects/plans for the future months/years but do not tend to schedule them. Life's too full of surprises for that. However, having many things on my plate, I always had to organise my time to a certain degree at least, or else I wouldn't be able to manage to do what needed to be done. I like to know how today or tomorrow will look like, so I can use my time well. However, having short-term plans doesn't mean I'm not open to changes. It just means I more or less know the direction my day's going. You want to be recognized for your intellectual qualities and do not require compliments or flattery to feel inwardly happy.Very true. I think I'm an intelligent person and like to believe I have many things to offer. Always had problems with self-esteem and never saw myself as pretty/beautiful and in a state like this, whatever compliment you receive, you won't believe it anyways. It's nice to hear nice things, but till this day I tend to take compliments very lightly and not too well. The other side of the problem is that I have a hard time complimenting others, which I'd like to change asap. It's a wonderful thing to make your beloved ones feel appreciated and it's a thing I need to learn.

At the time of your birth the zodiacal sign of Scorpio was ascending in the horizon. Its ruler Mars is located in the tenth house.
Your life will be marked by your shrewd, secretive, obstinate, clever, and reserved disposition. True, true although not sure how secretive I might call myself, true - I'm stubborn and strongly opinionated (although I do like to hear people out, even if it won't change the way I perceive things), true - lots of self-restraint in me. You remain an enigma: with these traits, your life events could be either very tragic or very fortunate. I'm an enigma to myself even. So many contradictory thoughts and feelings at times. Have heard I'm hard to figure out quite a few times.  To which category of Scorpio do you belong? There are two types, the extremely emotional, attracted by those pathological aspects of biological relationship, or the highly mystical, concerned with spirituality. I'd bet I'm the first one. I am extremely emotional, a bit too touchy at times, take other people's actions and words very seriously. Plus, am the biggest crybaby you'll ever meet. You are a person of extremes, very sensitive and desirous of attachment. Definitely so. 3 x yes! There is some attraction to the occult or to psychic phenomena. You are active in the sense that there is a psychological struggle going on inside you between the positive and negative poles-those of affirming and satisfying or rejecting and repressing. I guess this is exactly why I'm an enigma even to myself. You are very intense in your feelings and remain passionately attached to the person you love. True. That's exactly why I don't give in easily and have my guards up 24/7. Once I get attached to someone, there's no going back. I'd go as far as to saying I'm afraid to let go emotionally because I know how vulnerable and dependent I can be. Similarly, when you dislike someone you are very fixed in that feeling. I think that's also true although for the longest time there haven't been people I could have said I disliked. Of course, there are people whose company I do not seek or enjoy but that's about it. Also, can't recall hating anyone. However, there is room for optimism in that: whatever type of Scorpio you may happen to be, there exists a desire deep in your inner self for psychic regeneration. At some point in your life, after the occurrence of a major dramatic event that will affect you deeply, the goal and entire expression of your ego may alter entirely. Afraid of a dramatic event then - only really shocking things can completely change our personas. And I do not wish for such an event in my life, as I assume it would be a tragic one. The intensity and profundity of your passion, however, will always be constant. Yes, passionate is a word I've heard many times about myself. I also believe there's a lot of passion in me. Passion for people, for dance, for travelling, for food. You have a tendency to go into the shadows and secretly plan the course of action you will take, reluctant to let others know the exact nature of your mood or feelings. In a way, yes. I need some emotional and intelectual intimacy. On the other hand, sharing some plans with people has a very selfish reason to it - once you spell it out, people will check up on how you're proceeding with your plans - a great way to motivate you to keep on going, to get you back on track if you somehow loose sight of the thing you want. In your sexual affairs you are full of passion and strong attachment. Exert more control over your passions; don't be so resentful of others. Will try to, promise. Use your strong will and character for favorable and beneficial things. You have a strong inclination to be involved in medicine, perhaps even surgery. Never thought of it. You are attracted by research and investigation in general. Yes. I like to know things, although have become ignorant lately. Shamefully so. Used to be up to date with all that was happening in the world. The last couple of months have seen me living in the moment and my own little reality so much, that I've forgotten the bigger picture. Your life will be geared to the attainment of prestigious positions in the world. Yes please! Your temperament is that of an ambitious person who can blaze for herself a path of individual realization. I agree with that as well. Still need to build up some more self-confidence in order to follow through with my plans and not give up on the finish line, as I've done so many times in my life. You are very independent, and prefer to have your own business or enterprise, disliking unwarranted advice or unsolicited assistance. That'd be about right. Can't imagine and don't want to work in a formal, corporate environment. For some time now I've been convinced that whatever I end up doing, it'll be within the frames of my own business or a freelancing job. Mars here gives you the dynamism and stamina for possible success in business or a profession, as your energy will be able to carry you through the turbulent and unstable periods which you will experience in the professional world. I hope Mcity's partying won't suck all the energy out of me, it's true that I highly depend on it in the years to come. At times your emotional nature may override your intellectual limitations and these are the moments when you should take extra precautions. Your destiny will require many critical decisions. Fortunately, you will be able to respond to the urgency of the moment, for you meet crises with bravery and composure. I needed to hear that one. Sometimes I overstress for nothing but it is true that when there's a real critical moment, I know how to stay composed and logically search for solutions. Coming to India might be one of those critical decisions I guess and one word I've heard most often from people listening to the whole story is courage. I've been told people admire how brave I was to hop on that plane (I always answer that it would have taken far more courage to actually stay in Warsaw and lead a 'normal' life, trying to find a 'normal' job, then moving to India).

Saturn is in the first house. Saturn's placement here gives you a conservative, sometimes gloomy and self-denying outlook on life. True, fortunately and unfortunately. In many ways I'm very conservative and old-fashioned, sometimes I think I have too many rules for my own good. But then again, I do take a lot of pride in having most of them, they make me like myself. Self-denying - unfortunately true as well. Because every contact is of great importance, you tend to be rather detached and even aloof so that you can be sure exactly where you stand. As I've mentioned before - guards up so I don't get attached emotionally to people who won't return the favour. You can be self- conscious and may feel awkward and prudish with others who appear to take things more lightly. I do. The depth with which you look at yourself is characteristic of the way you relate to others.
You were taught very early in life to be self-reliant, and you were often given more responsibility than usual for your age. I would agree with the first one, not necessarily with the second part of the statement. I don't think I had more responsibilities than I should have, although I think to a certain extent I was made aware of how things were looking out for us pretty early. Be it the nature of some relationships inside the family or the financial situation in our household. I don't think it's a bad thing. And yes, I've always somehow felt more mature than other people my age. Maybe it's only my righteousness speaking though. Your intellect is constant and usually unfettered by momentary feelings and whims. Logic plays an important role in your thinking processes. I am a very logically and realistically thinking person. I do act on impulses and like being spontanous but it never is reckless (well, almost never) and however crazy a thing seems to be, it's been analysed and quickly estimated. Grandiose schemes and theories have little interest for you. Theories and games do not interest me at all. Once you accept your own limitations and face up to your challenges and responsibilities with a sense of purpose, you will be able to succeed in whatever field you decide on. Your health is generally good, so long as you exercise sufficiently to relieve tension. Exactly what I haven't been doing lately. These are the 'psyche healthy' things I've been mentioning in my last posts.

The Sun was in the tenth house at the time of birth. The Sun here promises honor, success, and prestige in adult life. Publicly you appear as a vital, proud, powerful person. So I've been told. Your individuality has the need to manifest itself publicly and often to foist its energy on others. I think I come off as too overwhelming and lound. A couple of times have promised myself to work on that but all the energy I have needs to be vented somehow, so I end up being the good (?) ol' me. I've been suggested to try meditiation as a means of calming down a bit and finding better balance. You have come to life with a satisfactory physical and moral heredity and you are going to acquire the favorable disposition of many persons of power to assist you in your ascent through life. You promise?
Your liabilities include an exaggerated pride, arrogance and a tendency to rely too much on your own resources. All three are true. Have been trying to fight those, hope I'm on the right way.

The Moon was found in the tenth house at the time of birth. Among other things, this is an indication of your ability to adjust to varying conditions. I believe that's been estabilished a while back. Whatever your temperamental qualities may be, destiny will place you in situations where you will have dealings with the public. I can't see it any other way simply because I love being with and among people.
Some public note could eventually come your way. Yet you should remember that the Moon successes are rather ethereal and do not maintain a permanent state. Imagination, a tenacious disposition and ability to relate to the public are among your attributes. I've noticed that and also have gotten very positive feedback. Even such a small thing as this blog. The comments and thoughts I'm being given have planted a little seed in my mind. A seed that will hopefully grow to be quite a satysfying and successful project. Outwardly, you will appear as one who reacts to emotions rather than to reason, yet you attempt a logical rationalization of your impulsive notions. Heh, didn't I say an almost exact thing a couple of lines ago? You will better develop your potentialities in any professional circle where your natural inclinations can be reasonably manifested. 

Venus was found in the tenth house at the time of birth.
You will appear as a person who seeks harmony, inclined as you are to observe the aesthetic value of all things in life, to engage in artistic activities and to possess all that is lovely and beautiful. I do observe the aesthetic, I do enjoy artistic and creative activities in life, I used to want to possess. Or rather, I still would like to but acknowledge the fact that I'd rather have great experiences than possessions. I don't enjoying shopping anymore, to be honest. Sure, buying nice things makes you feel good, but I don't need it and I don't seek it. You have sufficient potential to achieve success in life, especially if your occupation is artistic or musical. I'll make it one then, even better;) Much of your success is a consequence of applied interest and hard work; you posses merit and ability, and your congenial, intelligent manner produces a very exalted image. That's not for me to judge, but I hope it's true. In any case, there are very good possibilities for the acquisition of some social distinction, a good reputation and financial success at some period of your life. 

Pfeew, that was some soul searching :)

And I guess now that I've gone through it sentence by sentence, it kind of is correct..
If you're up for a little experiment, I'll give you the link to the test and you tell me how true it turned out to be in your case.

Could there really be something to all the horoscope craze around the world?
