Exactly! That's why if I decide to get a tat, it's gonna' be a lot more practical than a zodiac sign, and one that will appeal to my wife. I'm thinking of one on my arm: "Stop and get milk, maxipads, and chocolate". I'd never have to buy another post-it note again.

I'm a Pisces - which - from what I've read - fits in with my "niceguyness." Wife is a Scorpio - and I only remember that because of the tattoo she got on her neck a year ago.
I'm very much an Aries, pioneering, leader, competitive and all that, can help in some ways with understanding yourself and your partner.

So - most of you seem to believe there is something to this?

It is not that crap you read while standing in line at the grocery store. If you really were to look at your astrological sign and see where the sun/moon hung on the day, hour and minute you were born, you will find it has a lot more truth to it than wackiness. I didn't believe much about it until my sister got in to it and she (based on the above mentioned) was able to get me, my children and my husband pretty spot on and also who their ideal partners are. Oddly enough, he is a Pisces who only dated Virgos. I was a Virgo who dated Pisces. Weird but when you really research it (or have a crazy sister willing to do it) you realize alot about yourself and the "reasons" if you will.

I'm a Libra and that's about all I know about it. Nor do I care, I don't believe in such things.

Sh!t, a black cat just walked by.

The bit I don't believe in is the downside or shadow side of my sign

Ah come on now, what is wrong with Scorpios!? That would be ME -of coarse !

Yeah, really really odd with the same birthdates! What are the chances of that.

I never looked into signs, I know nothing about them at all.

No strange sign stories, just a coincidence of 13's for us....... me, husband & my best friend growing up.... we are all #13 babies... 3 consecutive months in a row -him & her were Friday the 13thers. We have 2 other friends who have 13 birthdays too, a good friends husband has the same birthday as mine. What is there not to love about the # Thirteen.

Nothing against Scorpios at all. For Deejo however, that would be the death of him. Remember how he says he wants a woman who could kick his aZZ physically? Okay now toss in a rather hot headed type A woman who is untrusting oftentimes. Bottom line, he starts a relationship with a Scorpio, he better be up for fitness tests at Star Wars speed and to be laid out flat on his back.....and not in a good way.

I can't help but think this has to be a statistical anomaly.

Last 4 women I have been 'highly' attracted to and involved with all share the same birth month. 3 have the same birthday. 3 have the same middle name. The fourth has a birthday within 7 days of the other 3.

Interesting? Odd? Yes? No?

Anyone else out there have a habit of stacking girlfriends with the same birthday?
Just re-reading here.

The LAST 4 - so not some random sample out of the 1,000s - but 3 of the last 4 have had the same birthday; And 3 of the last 4 the same middle name.

The middle name thing seems almost impossible. Mind if we ask what the common middle name is?

And the birthday - wouldn't it be 1/365*1/365*1/365? Or one in nearly 49 million?

A coincidence is the universe's way of pointing something out to you. But what it's trying to tell you from this I can't begin to imagine!

I'm betting the middle name was Marie. Yes, Deejo?

Maybe in battle, he can see in the night, and their warriors carried owl feathers in battle. Otherwise, it referred to seeing spirits.

So, when my friends and I went to this astrological guru, I'm not sure of her reason for doing so, but the lady acted like she saw a ghost when I sat in front of her. She threw my money at me and made me leave. Honestly, I used deodorant, and I don't see dead people. And I only read certain people if I see their eyes.
Don't knock it. It's never happened to me, but I've heard very similar stories from my dad's side. I don't understand it, or read too much into it, but I don't dismiss it either.

I'll try not to bore people, but it is not just a simple matter of combinatorics and probabability, as you describe. But you are moving closer, in my opinion. I'm a certified 6 Sigma Black Belt, but did the job in the past, so we're the kind of guys that do stuff like setting up the protocols used to prevent terrorist attacks in airlines and stuff. My particular job was to predict automotive failures. There are a lot of subtrends in birth patterns and names in america. Blame stuff like the Vietnam war for birthdays, parents and telvision programs for names, and the like before including the stars in our calculations.

Incredibly, parental personalities tend to contribute to the choice of their kids names, and the kids then show remarkable adaption to their parent's personalities, and the names they are given, according to some psychologists. I'm talking out of my arse, though. Its easier to chuck it up to stars than spending years getting certified as a 6 Sigma Black Belt.
