You're Friday Momen to Zen: Because it's funny

Whether you believe in it or not, star signs can be very random, and in turn, very funny.

We were talking about astrology today, and this was the first site I found. I've never seen anything before that mentions what ailments a star sign suffers from or what their "beneficial foods" are, so I thought I'd share them today as my moment of random zen.

As I was born on the 19th of Feb which is on the cusp between Aquarius and Pisces, I get to double dip and cherry pick all the best bits of both star signs as I like (oooh! my ailments of choice: Alchoholism, Drug addiction, lack of sleep and insanity! cool)

Some mindless fortune telling for Friday. Enjoy:

Firstly, why aren't pork scratchings on the list?

Secondly...

What about Ophiuchus? The Sun spends 19 days in Ophiuchus.

Anyway, you're not really on the cusp, you're well and truly Aquarius (which is, in reality, Feb 15th to March 11th).

The real dates - as measured by Astronomers are:

Aries = April 19 - May 13
Taurus = May 14 - June 19
Gemini = June 20 - July 20
Cancer = July 21 - Aug 9
Leo = August 10 - Sept 15
Virgo = Sept 16 - Oct 30
Libra = Oct 31 - Nov 22
Scorpio = Nov 23 - Nov 29
Ophiuchus = Nov 30 - Dec 17
Sagittarius = Dec 18 - Jan 18
Capricorn = Jan 19 - Feb 15
Aquarius = Feb 16 - March 11
Pisces = March 12 - April 18
