Your Rising Sign is Aquarius



You are an interesting mix of introspective and outlandish.

Waving your freak flag high, you really do things your own way.

While you may seem distant, you care very deeply for humanity.

You just have no tolerance for fools, slackers, or dullards.

And while you’re fairly misanthropic, many are drawn to you.

Innovative and clever, people look to you for new ideas and trends.

By Michelle

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
