*glances up at the 3 books of superstition that I have* I have already enjoyed reading on occult matters. It is the part of me that doesn't really -know-. And I have always liked it, because my soul is bound in a lot of darkness. I know this for a fact, all I have to do is refer back to my past lives. Let's see, my favorite superstition book would have to be, "How Lucky is a Four Leaf Clover" because it actually gives -stories- behind the superstitions.
2. What extremes have you heard of someone going to in the name of superstition?
Now I do not put much store in the whole black cat crossing your path. (I own a black cat named Kiros and quite honestly he's -always- crossing my path..) I think my love of superstition takes on a more scholarly intent. So I would not do the extremes, however I have been known to toss salt over my shoulder after I spill the shaker or knock on wood after someone says something that could be just asking for fate to jinx it.
3. Believer or not, what's your favorite superstition?
This one is obscure but it is that a man with a white spot in a full head of hair will be very lucky in money but unlucky in love. I think that is because I -did- know a guy in high school who was like that.. who had a white spot at the back of his head. My friend Kelly was obsessed with him. Did I ever tell her the story.. nah not really.
4. Do you believe in luck? If yes, do you have a lucky number/article of clothing/ritual?
Of course I do, and for reference my lucky number is 9, I like that number anyways, and not just because I was born on September 9th. I just remember hearing that a child is lucky if they were born on the 1st day of the 1st month, 2nd day of 2nd month and so on.. and I just happened to be born on the 9th day of the 9th month. Of course looking back I realize that I do not think I am so very lucky. But that is beside the point
5. Do you believe in astrology? Why or why not?
Oh absolutely, I find everything is true for me in the Virgo world.. and of course to dig in further with my Scorpio Ascendant and Taurus moon. Well it hits it right on the mark. I tend to be very calm and rational while inside I am a smouldering pit of passion and sensuality. Two sides warring out with control, unfortunally my rational often-times wins out.
Thank you gen_adrianfii for heralding the "Friday Five" for me this week. And I just want you to know that you got yourself a great girlfriend in fox_reed She was -very- helpful in advice to me a few days ago. Personally I think you both lucked out. Anyways I ramble
