This sign is the most selfish of the zodiac. Aries are independent by nature and don’t give much of a hoot about anyone else…and why should they? According to them, they’re  numero uno. They also think they’re a natural born leader but others probably find them dictatorial and overbearing at best. Don’t get me wrong — I have plenty of wonderful Rams in my life it’s just there’s a certain something about some of them.

Their ego has its own zip or post code and their impatience is legend — just ask their latest victims who bore the brunt of their temper because they had to wait in line at the post office. OK, fair’s fair, everyone gets a little ticked off about that but the

difference is they’re always the one causing a scene or storming off in a huff especially when they don’t get their own way. How dare anyone keep them waiting!

They’re aggressive and competitive by nature and will crawl over their sick granny to get to the finish line first. They have to win at any cost. They’re headstrong and a know-it-all and if proven wrong will keep arguing the point until they get bored — which tends to happen a lot. Not one for follow through although on the plus side this sign rarely holds a grudge. They’re the love ’em and leave ’em type and operate on impulse. Known as a heart-breaker, they’re enthusiastic…at first and then they’re

This sign is the most stubborn of the zodiac. Once they set their mind on something there’s no turning back or turning them around or nitpicking them or prodding them — even an inch. They’ll just keep plodding along until they get to where they want to go. Heaven forbid anyone who gets in their way as they will be trampled under that sheer force of will of their. Rigidity is their middle name. Taurus rules money and possessions and they like to have a lot of both. Nothing wrong with that except they’d sell their granny to the old age home just to make a buck.

They are self-indulgent and snobby and prefer the good life — only the best will do and certainly no cheap imitations – well maybe as gifts for others but not for them. They tend to think of themselves as a food critic and will gorge themselves in 5 star restaurants on a constant basis as many of them can afford it. They like routine and can get very upset if something in their daily life changes. Comfort and security are what makes them tick. They are the ultimate snob and will look down up others if they don’t meet their standards.
Well, I hate to have to be the one to tell everyone but Taurus is quite dull and certainly not the life of the party. They’re a stick in the mud but I guess that’s just fine by them. Who wants to be bothered partying all night when you can spend your time at home counting your money, tallying up your net worth and sorting through your designer clothes

Cancer: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

The words almost slipped passed me, as I was stunned by my client’s report that he had gone through a cancer scare recently. The reason the comment finally struck a chord was that it was eerily familiar to what I heard from another client. This current client’s version was, “They told me that if I was to go out shopping for cancer, mine is that one that you would want to buy.” This was, also, right in line with what I heard seven years ago while lying in a hospital bed nervously waiting my biopsy.

At that time, the initial impression was that the tumor growing in my chest was a thymoma. The radiation technician’s exact words were, “If you’re going to get cancer, this is the one you want.” His reassurance was that I, most likely, had a friendly form of cancer and could take comfort in the knowledge that it would, most likely, not kill me. He, of course did not say this last part, but, hey I’m a therapist and I get hidden messages.

The fact that, in a short period of time, two other cancer survivors were told almost the exact same thing, gave me pause. Was it possible that all three of us were randomly chosen to develop cancer-lite, and therefore had nothing to worry about? Or, are medical professionals being trained to use the “You got yourself the best kind of cancer” line as a way to introduce patients to the path ahead? I know, in my case, the cancer “you would want to have” actually turned out to be the “rare cancer that we don’t have a lot of data on but requires a high level of intervention.” Or, as I overhead one of my radiologists putting it, “We got once chance at this.”

If it’s true that there is a go-to “good cancer” line being used by the medical profession so as to not startle cancer patients, I understand the intention. I’m fairly certain that I would have gone into full freak-out mode if anyone had led with, “Well Mr. Verano, if cancer was a car then you got yourself a Ford Pinto.” (For the younger crowd, the Ford Pinto, is described by Wikipedia as having “. . . developed a controversial safety record with notable issues related to fuel-tank fires associated with rear-end collisions.”) Having said that, I still wonder if it would be a better idea to stick with the “we won’t really know until we run some tests and then recheck the results” approach.

The, not so obvious, factor in the good cancer approach is that, like me, many cancer patients are just as concerned about surviving cancer’s treatment as cancer itself. When it came to soothing this fear, the doctor who had developed the protocol for my upcoming adventure completely missed the target when he said pointedly, “There’s no doubt about it, you’re gonna get spanked.” By that time in my cancer anxiety curve, I could have used a heaping dose of, “Your chemo and radiation therapies are going to be a piece of cake—kind of like getting your teeth cleaned and a flu shot in the same day.” I think one could make the case that before giving any cancer patient false hope, we should first and foremost give them the option of hearing the hard or soft truth. One advantage of this would be that someone handed the hard truth might be more inclined to seek a second opinion and be rewarded with the softer truth of “not as bad as we thought” or, the mother of all second opinions, “not cancer.”

If it sounds like I’m landing on both sides of the fence on this topic it’s because I am. While I have to admit that hearing that I had the “good” cancer gave me back my regular breathing pattern in the moment, it almost certainly contributed to the numbness I felt all the way down to my toes when I received that official results that my cancer was at stage 4. But hey, what’s cancer survivorship if not a rollercoaster ride?

I guess I’m old school when it comes to a cancer diagnosis. I have always assumed there are three types of cancer—the good (which is a diagnosis of “no cancer”), the bad and the ugly. These days, when a psychotherapy client comes to me having been reassured by his or her doctor with some version of, “If I had cancer this is the one I would want,” I have a professional policy related to how I respond:

1. Nod my head.
2. Smile a genuine smile
3. Say, “That’s awesome news!”
4. After they leave, say a silent prayer that they have the appropriate safety harness for the wild ride ahead.

This sign is the biggest gossip of the zodiac. They’re as nosy as Mrs Kravitz and they just can’t be trusted to keep a secret. They come across as a know-it-all but if someone were to dig just beneath the surface they’d discover that they’re repeating someone else’s conversation. They’re a jack of all trades but a master at none.

Gemini is the sign of the twins because they can be two-faced and slippery when they want to be. They’re very good at stretching the truth. They are a fine manipulator and can weasel their way out of just about anything yet still be in the confines of the law. They like the sound of their own voice and can talk endlessly about not very much at all.

They have the ‘gift of the gab.’ I have to say though Gemini really is very clever and can come across as very eloquent and educated even if they left college with one semester to finish and now have a lifetime of student loans to pay off and no immediate job prospects. Partying is their MO but they prefer to call it networking. They consider themselves to be flexible but others would call it flaky.

This sign is weirdest of the zodiac. Most Aquarians will probably take this as a compliment but they shouldn’t. They are detached and aloof and almost robotic when it comes to matters of the heart. It’s sort of like they don’t really have any emotion at all because they’re so undemonstrative. It’s like they’ve been brought to this earth from another planet.

Again, that’s not a compliment. They are rebellious and can actually be a huge torment — never knowing when to stop the endless teasing and terrorizing of those closest to them. What they think is funny most people do not. They seem to care more about people who are not closest to them — at best what could be called acquaintances.

Their loved ones need a thick skin to deal with their eccentric ways. Just ask any spouse of an Aquarian who will tell you the numerous times they were left to fend for themselves at a social event while their dearly beloved was off looking for the most interesting person in the place to mix with. They need your freedom at all costs.

Many Aquarians are inventive and will come up with unique and useless innovations. The new and scientific really appeal to them and they never cease to show off what they consider their brilliance and originality. They are stubborn and will do just about anything to prove their point — hammering even their poor old granny into submission when they think they’re right. They can be erratic and sometimes their behavior could get them committed.

They are not materialistic and will tend to give away their money and possessions to humanitarian causes.

Saving the world is what matters most to them and many Aquarians believe they truly have the intellectual capabilities to do it. They are the classic know-it-all.

This sign is the pettiest and most critical of the zodiac. They’re the epitome of a nag and drive others nuts with their constant nit-picking and fault finding. They notice and pay attention to things others find mundane and boring.

Theirs is the sign of service aka masochist. Who else likes to be bossed around and run around after others while constantly complaining — it makes no sense to the rest of us. Actually, complaining is their favorite pastime and Virgo only feels loved when they’re picking up after those they love. They’re quite petty and seek perfection where none exists. Heaven help their long suffering partner — how do they put up with it? I guess because Virgo cleans and pickups after them.

Virgo is the sign of the virgin and of course we all know that’s because of their prudish ways. They come across like a holy saint but once the lights are off they’re the devil in disguise. Many people don’t realize the shadow of this sign can be cheap, easy and slovenly. Looking at the flip side makes their complaining easier to live with. They are a constant worry wart which creates a nervous disposition. To counter-balance this they pop pills which they call vitamins and the doctor’s waiting room is a home-away-from-home for them. Plain and simple, Virgo is a hypochondriac.

This sign is the bossiest of the zodiac. Leo comes across as confident and commanding when all eyes are on them but as soon as they’re not getting enough attention they tend to throw a hissy fit. They’re a limelight hog and their vanity is legend. They are a show-off by nature and won’t hesitate to boast to an adoring audience.

Theirs is the royal sign of the zodiac. They’re pompous and think they really are the king or queen while the rest of us mere servants are here to wait on them hand and foot. They are big snobs and can be extremely overbearing and arrogant. ‘Off with her head’ they’d secretly like to command when their granny doesn’t make their favorite meal to their liking.

Money can’t buy taste and Leo is known for lavish spending particularly on gaudy clothing and over the top jewelry and accessories which command the attention they crave. Their motto could be the famous PR slogan: “there’s no such thing as bad publicity.” As long as people are talking about them then they must be popular. Leo is constantly seeking attention and will be best suited to a partner who doesn’t care for such things. Someone who they can endlessly boss around and let them make all the decisions as well as take all the credit.

This sign is the most boring of the zodiac. While the rest of us are out having a good time, Capricorn is working overtime and counting every penny toward their first million. Nothing wrong with hard work and a long term plan but they’re a pinch penny and would strong-arm their grandmother out of a buck if they could. They are ruthless in their ambition and will not stop until they get what they want. They are fearful of being poor so can be stingy when it comes to the dosh. They are also resentful of those who are higher up the food chain.

They are not very sympathetic towards others and will stick with relationships out of a sense of duty and obligation. They are impressed by materialism and can be greedy and selfish when it comes to their stuff. They also have a suspicious nature and think everyone is out to get them. They secretly despise themselves and will create challenges and obstacles which they constantly need to overcome. They think success must come at a price otherwise they’ll never enjoy it which they wouldn’t anyway regardless of how it was accumulated. Capricorn is a born pessimist and can be a downer on others. Ever wondered why they don’t have any friends? They’re too depressing or boring to be around.

This sign is the most despised of the zodiac…and no wonder! Scorpio is the sign of sex and if they’re not sleeping with their best friend’s lover then they’re plotting the moves to.

If committed, they’re extremely loyal to the point of being possessive and jealous and like to keep tabs on their partner at all times. Tracking devices and nanny cams were obviously invented by a Scorpio. Obsessive by nature, they will not stop until they get what they want and that includes stalking their ex online. Restraining orders aside they can be paranoid and suspicious at the best of times. Revenge is sweet and anyone who crosses a Scorpio will face instant death from the sting of their famous tail which could come in the form of a dirty look or heavy breathing by an anonymous caller.

With the level of intensity they have, they are often misunderstood. That dark, brooding nature of theirs should convey a depth of emotion rather than just a routine rotten mood. Why is it that people mistake their sense of humor as biting sarcasm. They tend to point out the obvious and prey on the weak. As soon as they smell fear they attack and won’t give up…ever, ever, ever — even after their granny has waved the white flag.

This sign is the biggest liar of the zodiac — not intentionally but really just to spare someone’s feelings or make themselves look good.

They don’t like to be confrontational so will stretch the truth when necessary. They’ll also butter someone up to get what they want — others call it sucking up but they like to think of the words diplomacy and tact. They’re a big spender — even when they don’t have the moolah to cover the costs. The more expensive the item the better as far as Libra is concerned.

What’s a little credit card debt for something that makes you feel like a million bucks? Some would call them superficial but they know they’re worth every cent they spend on themselves and more.

Designer labels just have a certain something Libra can’t explain. They’re the type who only makes friends who can do things for them. Social contacts and connections they have plenty of and won’t hesitate to use them when it suits them.

They hate to be alone and many of them hook up with those below their social standing just so they have a warm body to keep them company on cold nights actually anything with a pulse will do. They’re extremely dependent and needy and can resort to taking telemarketing calls just so they can speak to someone on the other end.
