Zodiac Signs as Bibliophiles // i try to be an “astrologist”


So this was totally random! I used to be a huge fan of astrology, and zodiac signs (I’m a scorpio!!) back when I was younger. I remember going on Pintrest as typing in “scorpio traits”, and gasp at everything that was true, and everything else that wasn’t true would just go over my head.

Now that I’ve grown out of my little phase, I thought it would be fun to make a little post about the signs, cause I have been on tumblr way too much.

NONE OF THIS IS ACCURATE SO PLEASE DON’T TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY!! i probably got like everything wrong because my research was all over the place, please don’t yell at me if anything (which it probably is) is wrong, asdfghjkl i’m sorryyy

  1. Oh my god I LOVE THIS POST!!! This was SO much fun to read Balie, aaahhh. And omg, so many of the things you said for Scorpio were so true?? I hate love triangles, hate people INTERRUPTING MY READING, love fantasy & diverse rep, very fangirly, love eating & reading, and I LOVE PUNS. I really don’t like 500+ fantasy books tho (500 PAGES IS TOO LONG AND SCARY) and bruh I literally am the worst at solving mysteries. 😂 Anyways, this was such a fun post!!!

    1. asdfghjk i’m so freaking sorry!! i don’t know a lot of capricorn traits, and while i did research it, i wasn’t sure how to incorporate into the topic i was writing about (which is bibliophiles). once again, i’m really sorry, but thank you for telling me!! if you could tell me how i could fix it that would be SUPER GREAT!


  2. I was reading this and thinking, I’m like so much of all of these? And then I read Aquarius, and I’m like, YES! This is me. Totally me.
    And I’m not looking up my zodiac sign because I really like your description of the Aquarius, so I’m sticking there even if I don’t match that date 😂

  3. BAHAHA. The one for Leo is only half true for me! I do love books of almost all genres, and I do read contemporary romances after a horror book. 😉 Apart from that, I have MUCH emotions when I read–I cry and laugh and do all those weird noises. Also, I do rarely update my blog (well, not rarely, but I post much less than some other blogs), although I don’t think I’m well-known at all!

    Awesome post, Balie! ❤ (Also, I ADORE your blog name. Very cute.)

  4. Hahahaha I absolutely love this post! I’m a gemini so let’s see if you got things right 😛
    I do read whatever I want and I like fantasy the most (sci-fi depends), I hope my reviews are eloquent and smooth 😂 and that I’m witty – definitely trying to achieve that
    I know pretty much all astrological websites and stuff say geminis are supposed to be really social and good at communicating but alas, I am not. And if only I had read every book 😢
    So about half of it is right? 😛 I say that’s really impressive haha

  5. I love this post, its so fun to read! I’m a Sagittarius and so much of this seemed to fit, even though I don’t believe star signs as much as I used to. The only one I can really disagree with is “sniffles at the mention of harry potter” because I haven’t read them, but I definitely know Sagittariuses who it applies to.
