What's your Rashee???

Rashees.... Sun signs.. These facts amaze me a lot.....!! I am not superstitious and I think sun signs don't have anything to do with superstitions too.. But I have come across many people who think just think of all these things as same. That's a different issue.....

Talking about sun signs, the part about sun signs that I like the most and I always look out for is the Personality Traits. As per the the Zodiac all the people in the world can be divided into 12 distinct groups based on their birth dates. Each group of people have some special characteristics. Now it is not possible that there are only 12 types of people that exist in the world. But this classification gives the major characteristics of these people , their nature ,their behaviour and approach toward things.

People with same sun signs can also have different characteristics but there are similarities in general. Males and females of the same sun signs too have different personalities.

The future predictions like horoscopes etc made on the basis of this criterion are not always true but really close at times. I like to check them out once in a while and compare it with happens actually with me....

I like to know people and know how far they resemble to their personalities as per their sun signs, here I give a small description of the people of various sun signs that I have come across and the characteristics I found in them..!!

Urvashi's Book Of Personality traits.

Aries - March 21 - April 20
Have great power of influencing thoughts, really good orators.They are aggressive about their ambitions..

Taurus - April 21 - May 21
I am a Taurean and have come across many other Taureans too.... Smart.. Patient.. I think they believe in going to the core of things rather than just accepting what is visible to the eyes..

Gemini - May 22 - June 21
Geminis are stubborn by nature and I think they cannot forget or forgive easily.

Cancer - June 22 - July 22
Cancerians are I suppose the most sensitive set of people I have come across. Cancerian boys are no exception. They too are as sensitive as girls are. But are sweet and make really good friends if you can connect with them. But please don't hurt them....!!

Leo - July 23 -August 21
Fierce...Angry... Strong and well built just as their zodiac symbol. I have just known Leo men actually. Yet to meet a Leo Lady.

Virgo - August 22 - September 23
Really smart people. Have many friends of this sun sign. Intellectual and good judges. If you really do something worth appreciation, you get your share of praises but on the other hand you also have to face criticisms, in case you miss out on their expectations levels. They are the perfectionists in whatever they do and demand the same from others who follow them. A great and inspiring example is one of my favourite teacher at college who belongs to this sun sign and she has typical characteristics of this group.

Libra - September 24 - October 23
My Mom and brother both belong to this sun sign and so I think I know the Librans very well. Clarity of thoughts..Honest and frank... Always stand out in a group, party etc because of their charisma....(Don't know if I should generalise this, but this is true for my brother...)

Scorpio - October 24 - November 22
A bit lazy but are good at sports rather than academics.

Sagittarius - November 23 - December 22
Hmm..The Saggis- Males and females have one common characteristic- Flirtatious nature ;)
apart from that they are spend thrifts and love partying.

Capricorn - December 23 - January 20
My Dad......They are cool people. Don't get angry easily. Helpful and Jolly.

Aquarius - January 21 - February 19
As their zodiac name suggests these people are like water.. Mix along well with anything and everything and hence can make you always comfortable in their company. I think they don't know how to complain.... because they they can adjust in any situation with any type of people.... no scope for complaining.My best friend is an Aquarian and I love this attitude of hers.

Pisces - February 20- March 20
Pisces..Hmm don't know many people very closely who belong to this group. Can just say that they are most of the times dreaming and are very creative.....!!!

PS:- This post was just a small attempt to write down the various characteristics of people whom I have come across and found interesting. There can be notable differences too. Do let me know, whether my description is appropriate or not for your sun sign..... :)

Criticism - As I see it......

"Well..the movie was not so good.."

"I think you could have done better.."

"That book is just a waste of time...Full of stupid incidents...!!!"

Hmm.. Just trying to collect some sentences which I keep on hearing many times around. You also keep on listening to them - these Criticisms ??? Well.... Human nature.....!! Many-a-times, when you are displeased with something or someone, we find faults with them and condemn them. If you don't want any criticisms “Do nothing, Say nothing, and Be nothing.” But being social animals, that is not possible for us....... So what is this 'Criticism' all about???

I think these days many people just know how to find faults with others even though they may be lagging in the same field. They never even give a second thought before criticising. It is really a rude thing according to me because if you are into the habit of criticising everyone at every occasion, It can create a very negative image about you. But if you genuinely feel that the act is not praiseworthy but faulty, you should go ahead and criticise as well as provide the scope for improvement. Sugar-coated criticism can also sometime be used so that the morale of the person is not affected as well as the message is conveyed.

People who criticise should only do so when they are willing to change the system actually and demanding a change of pattern. Sometimes, its just namesake criticising and when they are asked what are the improvement areas, what more do they expect...?? They cannot reciprocate as well as their criticism. So the point is when you criticise, be sure of the grounds on which you are criticising and you want improvement. If you have no will to Change it, you have no right to Criticise it.

For Eg: After a movie, some of my friends came and started all kind of blah-blah about the movie not being good. I had not been to the movie so I did not respond then. After a few days when I watched the movie, I found it good and so I asked my friends what they dint like in it and in the end after I justified all their points, they had nothing more to say than it was too long...

People don't criticise themselves, no matter how wrong they may be. It is really difficult to criticize oneself. Talking about myself, I accept criticisms when it comes from someone who has more knowledge than me on the subject and the one who criticises with a view to see an improvement. I accept it and try to work on my faults and avoid them the next time. But 'Criticisms' from people around who just want to find faults with my work without even having an insight of the efforts put by me into it are not welcome.

Criticism and Praise are two opposite things. Not just opposite but paradox terms. This is because “If you have all praises, no critics you'll likely have no success.” Human beings always crave for praises and not criticisms. Its easier to accept praises rather than criticism but when it comes to giving - What do they find more easy.... To Praise or Criticise?????? Well you can see for yourself.
