That's how I felt about mine, too. They were scarily accurate. Seems like we overlap in some areas...like appreciating positive affirmations and becoming exhausted by facades or worry.

I say: cheers to us!

This is scarily accurate.

Oh. My. God. Your "Bette" result is as dead on as my "Joan" result. How can that be? That's it. I'm done with horoscopes. Now, if anyone asks my sign, I'll just say, "Joan Crawford."
