Scorpio power?

galvanize

I'm bored... I have had this untested theory for a while: That more than the fair share of architects are born between the dates of oct 24th and nov 22nd... Am I just an ego-manical normal person? or is there some truth to this? It seemed to me (and some other scorpios) that while in school more of my colleages and professors were scorpio than any other one sign. Is it some kind of weird coincidence/ everything looks like a nail scenario or are scorpios more attracted to architecture than other signs, and if so, why?

I am also an aquarius! Maybe architects tend to be either aquariuses or scorpios. We do tend to be the people standing by corners, even if it's for different reasons

This is a 13y old comment... and also, astrology is bullshit.

Scorpio. I have this tested theory that says that scorpios are actually a superior type of human to all others carrying different astrological signs.

Actually, my classmate did a project on the signs and I don't remember how its explained, but its proven that the sign you claim you have isn't your true astrological sign, its the one before.

Guiggster: you're wrong. It is Taurus, the astrological opposite of Scorpio, which is the most superior sign, as evidenced by the many important Taureans who have gone before us - all of whom are my stellar compatriots.

If you care to debate this, let me know - I'll see if I can squeeze it in.

check out [url=http://pressroom.hallmark.com/birthday_trends_stats.html] for birthday statistics[url]

it's relatively balanced, but i'd be willing to bet that birthdays in the architecture world are statistically comparable to those of the population

I would say from my experience that both Taureans and Scorpios are definately the most superior people of our world.
But there is a difference between the two that I think gives the Taurean a bit of an edge.
Scorpios tend to be a bit crazy crazy and unstable. They are also more fun to hang out with.

diabase, nice list. I thought that scorpios would be unrivaled in this world, but thats an impressive group of people.

Well known scorpios:

Pablo Picasso
Albert Camus
Leon Trotsky
Carl Sagan
F. Dostoevsky
Theodore Roosevelt
Dylan Thomas
Simon AND Garfunkel
and just about every actor in Hollywood, plus Pat Sajak.

libra. know several architects who are libras but when I was volunteering for the Democrats last year, literally the entire volunteer staff was born between sept 24 - oct 24. it was bizarre. We celebrated everyone's birthdays for virtually that whole month......until November 3 of course.

Somehow I've only dated scorpios. This involves two long term relationships. But let me tell you there are ups and there are downs.

And diabase, you can drive, but I get to pick the car, where we're going, AND I get to hit you with a tv afterwards.

guiggster, I'd like to challenge your contention that just about every actor in hollywood is a scorpio. Allow me to introduce the following taurean stars/luminaries that you may have heard of:

Al Pacino
Michelle Pfeiffer
Steven Spielberg
George Lucas
Marlon Brando
Jack Nicholson
Renee Zellwegger
George Clooney
Katherine Hepburn
Kirsten Dunst
Uma Thurman
Daniel Day Lewis
Jerry Seinfeld
Paul Newman
Warren Beatty
Jessica Lange
Barbara Streisand
Ving Rhaymes
Cate Blanchett

Now put that in your pipe and smoke it. If you feel like it - I'm not pressuring you or anything...

Cameron, on the illustrious Taurean list, or one of the um, others?

StarSigns are funny things - one of the many things in this world that have elements of the knowable and the unverifiable.

I have met people that have judged me by my birthdate, and thats a shame. I have been called stubborn more than once in my lifetime. Now I tell people that stubborn is what people call you when you refuse to bend over and take it because someone tells you to.

some might say that your blood type tells you what kind of person you are, rather than your astrological sings.

A: introverted, shy, not letting people know of their feelings.
B: crazy, known for being polygamous.
AB: could be a genious or a moron.
O: almost like a wannabe B, really good at dealing with people.

dont ask me where I got this from.
i would be my ass that most of the people on this board or most architects are blood type B.

I'm a scorpio as well (just celebrated wednesday), but to be blunt I don't think there's necessarily a correlation between architects and astrological signs, but rather what's more likely is that most of our parents did it on Valentines day.
