Our Unique, Yet Charming Zodiac Sign Flaws

In the February issue of Dell Horoscope Magazine there is a delightful article, "The Charming Character Flaws of the Signs" by Brian Clark that examines the character flaws associated with each Zodiac sign.  Clark explains in a humorous yet informative way, that it's all these little flaws and characteristics that combine to make us all unique and interesting individuals.

Probably one of the amusing aspects of the article is that before Clark describes each sign he prefaces it with a little Astrological quote by the 17th century essayist Joseph Addison.  As he points out in the article, it's interesting that even back in the day, our ancestors were fascinated by the zodiacal quirks of character! 

I thought I would share Addison's quotes with you.  If you get a chance, read the article.  It's great.  A lot of good wisdom and information.

 Aries
Who works from morn to set of Sun,
And never likes to be outdone?
Whose walk is almost a run?
Who?  Aries.

Taurus
Who smiles through life-
except when crossed?
Who knows, or thinks he knows. the most?
Who loves good things:  baked,
boiled, or roast?
Oh, Taurus


Gemini
Who's fond of life and jest and pleasure:
Who vacillates and changes ever?
Who loves attention without measure?
Why, Gemini

Cancer
Who changes like a changeable season:
Holds fast and lets go without reason?
Who is there can give adhesion
To Cancer?


Leo
Who praises all his kindred do:
Expects his friends to praise them too-
And cannon see their senseless view?
Ah, Leo.

Virgo
Who Criticizes all she sees:
Yes, e'en would analyze a sneeze?
Who hugs and loves her own disease?
Humpf, Virgo.


Libra
Who puts you all off with promise gay,
And keeps you waiting half the day?
Who compromises all the way?
Sweet Libra.

Scorpio
Who keeps an arrow in his bow,
And if you prod, he lets go?
A fervent friend, a subtle foe-
Scorpio
 
Sagittarius
Who loves the dim religious light:
Who always keeps a star in sight?
An optimist both gay and bright-
Sagittarius


Capricorn
Who climbs and schemes
for wealth and place,
And mourns his brother's
fall from grace-
But takes what due in any case-
Safe Capricorn


Aquarius
Who gives to all a helping hand,
But bows his head to no command-
And higher laws doth understand?
Investor, Genius, Superman-
Aquarius

Pisces
Who prays and serves, and prays and
serves some more;
And feeds the beggar at the door-
And weeps o'er love lost long before?
Poor Pisces
