I'm not a great believer in horoscopes or such like.
The thought that we have types of personality due to the date in the year when we were born..."ooh he's a typical Leo.."; it just doesn't compute in my simple brain.
I think our personalities are formed in childhood and develop through experiences.
I used to be very outgoing and gregarious: I was a professional musician before I became a teacher and had no qualms about being on -or under - a stage and in front of thousands of people.
In my job, I am quite happy being 'on show' and in front of folk: I speak to people all day long.
But since my breakdown in 2011, there are times when I am happiest in my room with the world shut out.
In the horoscope world, would that make me "a typical Sagittarian"? Out on show or hiding for safety in amongst the trees? Or is that just my personality type and how it has changed over the last few years?
One thing I am finding incredibly hard to manage is change.
I used to find it quite exciting, used to look forward to planning changes too.
Maybe it's an age thing?
Today I'm reeling from news of a change that will hit us in a few weeks time.
I'm writing on here because I can't string my words together to explain the sheer panic my body is feeling.
I know that life has a way of throwing us curve balls: it'd be pretty dull if nothing ever changed at even the smallest level, but on days like this I wonder what life would be like in one of those exclusive monasteries where day after day was the same..
As always, the only way through stressful times is to treat yourself gently.
For me that means easing up on the non-essential things.
I make sure to eat properly and get to bed at an earlier time.
I also don't answer the house phone, letting the answerphone or someone else take any calls.
I don't think any of these behaviours are related to when I was born in the year.
Do you think your personality or behaviour is related to a horoscope?
What do you do when you know you've got a stressful time coming up?
