i’ve been really bored today because i don’t have anything to do (breaking my finger has pretty much singlehandedly destroyed all of my hobbies. no pun intended) so i started messing around with plugging my OCs’ birthdays into those birth chart things.

i kind of just want to talk about OCs and astrology now? i don’t take astrology too seriously but i do believe in it a little bit and kind of keep it in mind when making OCs. do any of you do the same? i just think it’s fun to read about my OCs’ signs and see how accurate they are.

speaking of that, i found this website and plugged damian’s (aka the only character on my profile now. rip) birthday and birth place into it and the results were eerily accurate. like. i can’t even explain how spot on 99% of it was?

anyways feel free to post your results below, i’m curious. if you copy the whole thing though please put it under a collapse because they’re really lengthy.

for damian i got: cancer rising, pisces sun, pisces moon, pisces mercury, aries venus, cancer mars, libra jupiter, aquarius saturn, capricorn uranus, capricorn neptune, scorpio pluto.

here’s the full thing if any of you are interested at all lmao

Rising Sign is in 18 Degrees Cancer
Very sensitive by nature, you prefer to be in your own familiar surroundings. Cautious and conservative, you make changes in your life only very slowly, if at all. You do not open up easily to strangers. Friendships are made for life, however -- once given, your trust is forever. Your mother, your home as a child and your early family life in general are very important to you. You are also very sentimental. When you feel self- confident, you are gentle, giving and protective of the needs of others. But when you feel insecure or threatened, you become overly sensitive to criticism, shy, withdrawn and moody. You have a strong need for security -- in the sense that you are being loved, nourished and protected.

Sun is in 04 Degrees Pisces.
Extremely sensitive and emotional, you absorb the emotions of others (whether positive or negative) like a sponge. Emotionally vulnerable, you are easily upset and tend to cry readily. You are at your best when you can structure your environment in such a way that you are surrounded by positive, upbeat people. You are very helpful and understanding of the needs of others. Indeed, at times this can be a disadvantage, because you can be a sucker for anyone who needs help. Shy, dreamy, romantic in nature, you delight in retreating into your private fantasy world. Just be careful that you do not get lost in it! Trust your intuitions -- you may be quite psychic.

Moon is in 18 Degrees Pisces.
You have strong feelings and are extremely sensitive. It would help if you had a thicker skin -- you tend to react emotionally to every situation you come across. Kind, gentle and considerate of the feelings of others, you are good at taking care of the sick, wounded and helpless. But you tend to absorb the energy of others -- so avoid those who are always negative. You have a rich, creative and lively imagination, but you should be careful not to spend all your time daydreaming. Very intuitive, you have good ESP and may be quite clairvoyant or psychic. Remember that you too have the right to get what you want from life. If you are always defensive and kowtowing to others, people will take advantage of you and exploit you.

Mercury is in 22 Degrees Pisces.
Your ideas and thought processes do not come to you in an orderly, logical fashion. Instead, you think with your feelings or with images produced by your rich and fertile imagination. A very subjective person, your dreams and fantasies are very important to you. You trust your intuitions and tend to reject ideas that are based solely on logic. Very impressionable, you are sensitive to the moods and emotional states of those with whom you come into contact.

Venus is in 15 Degrees Aries.
You are a very affectionate person but you hate to be tied down. You are more than willing to be the aggressor in initiating new relationships. Indeed, once you have set your sights on someone, you tend to pursue him or her ardently and passionately. But you do demand your own way in a relationship. Try to give in to your partner's needs and desires once in a while.
(this is. kinda right? he’s not really self-centered in relationships at all and would prefer to compromise over getting what he wants, but other than that i think it’s mostly accurate. he’s pretty impulsive when it comes to relationships. i think. idk. i haven’t really written him in relationships and i’m so exhausted so to be continued.)

Mars is in 09 Degrees Cancer.
Your moods are very important to your overall well-being. You are confident and self-assertive when you are feeling upbeat, and you are retiring, irritable and grumpy when you get depressed about anything. Very sensitive, you wear your heart on your sleeve. You are easily angered whenever you think someone has slighted you. It is best for you to show your anger immediately and let it all out, rather than to try to hold it in or to hold grudges for a long time. You're extremely loyal and defensive of your family, neighborhood, community and culture.

Jupiter is in 13 Degrees Libra.
You are generally good at balancing opinions and judging issues, but you tend to be indecisive when it comes to making up your own mind. You are objective and quite concerned with fair play and justice. But, when it comes to yourself, you are so aware that whatever you do might upset the apple cart that you often choose to compromise rather than do anything that might make you lonely or vulnerable. Relationships are very important to you -- you learn about yourself and grow through observing yourself interacting with others. Your aesthetic tastes are refined, but expansive and expensive.

Saturn is in 22 Degrees Aquarius.
Your personal sense of values is a reflection of the value structures of your peer group and of those you respect and admire. Try to be more critical in your acceptance of these values -- you tend to prejudge the abilities of those you trust and then follow what they say blindly. Basically very conservative, you prefer orderly, systematic changes and fear doing things rashly or impulsively. Ideas and philosophies must have some sort of immediately realizable, utilitarian function in order for you to pay any attention to them.
(this is. a little right? o well the stars can’t be 100% accurate about everything hsjdgj. he does kinda blindly follow people he trusts but. that’s it.)

Uranus is in 20 Degrees Capricorn.
You, and your peer group as well, seek out practical solutions to a changing society's attitudes to customs, traditions and authority structures. Your logical and orderly manner of dealing with these matters will result in permanent and carefully planned, but sweeping, reforms.
(ngl i have no idea what this means. nothing about this man is logical or orderly)

Neptune is in 20 Degrees Capricorn.
You, and your entire generation, will idealize work, practicality and the ability to attain reasonable goals. But, because you will also stress the need to be selfless and giving, you may find it difficult to attain your goals unless you have lowered your expectations on all fronts.

Pluto is in 25 Degrees Scorpio.
For your entire generation, this is a period of intense research and discovery in areas that were heretofore considered mysterious, remote or taboo. The root causes for many complex occurrences will be unearthed due to the intensity and thoroughness of the search.

N. Node is in 18 Degrees Sagittarius.
You will probably have many different contacts and acquaintances throughout your life. You're quite gregarious by nature and your natural curiosity about others lets you take the lead in forming new relationships. You'll form close ties with those who have similarly idealistic ideas -- especially those who can stimulate you intellectually in your chosen field of interest. Your enthusiasm for learning new things may also cause you to do quite a bit of traveling. Because you probably will have many wide-ranging interests and concerns, you most likely will have contacts and connections in various parts of the country (or world).

hmm... I never have, but this seems like a decent way to help flesh out a personality for a new character. Thanks for the idea!


(I put my dang sign in my bio lmaooo)

I love giving my characters horoscopes. My lunar sorceress Melantha has a Sagittarius moon in our setting and I've tried to write her in a way accommodating what the sign is supposed to denote.

• Always yearning for freedom
• Excited to experience other cultures by either platonic or romantic friendships
• Desperately wants to find the deeper, philosophical meaning of her existence
• Desires wisdom, truth
• Cannot stand the narrow-minded

Which fit because:

• Literally fled her country because they tried to deny her freedom with an arranged marriage
• In my first and currently longest going RP with her, she hid away in another nation that gave her huge culture shock but she loves it.
• She wants to know why the lunar sorcerers exist, what's their greater purpose besides revering the moon??
• She accepts she doesn't know everything there is to know, but she wants to expand upon her worldly experience.
• Self-explanatory.

I unfortunately can't use the site listed because it wants an actual, non-fictional location but it's wild that it was will accurate with your OC, like?? I might plug in my other OC that was made for our universe

But there's definitely fun in applying star signs to RP, I've thought about painstakingly creating a horoscope for my lunar babe. 🤔

Astrology's not my thing but I plugged in Gabriel's numbers anyways

Side note: astrolabes are really cool and I'd love to get my hands on one.

Rising Aries (9 degrees)
  • free spirit
  • energetic
  • assertive and confident
  • "you may feel calm and serene on the inside, you certainly do not act that way" get him
  • positive vibes
  • can be tactless and unthinking

Sun Capricorn (2 degrees)
  • "serious and mature" get out of here
  • I guess it does make sense to call him a hard worker, though, because it's a tough go out there when you've decided to be a drifter
  • "you are the ideal one to manage or administrate any ongoing project" do NOT let this man run your business or it'll burn to the ground in three weeks
  • persistent and tenacious

Moon Taurus (13 degrees)
  • affectionate
  • emotionally stubborn
  • "cautious about spending money" lmao
  • requires warmth and security to feel comfortable; arguably, the reason he moves around so much is because he doesn't feel safe, so this one's a valid point

Those are the big three, I think. The other ones that I don't understand:
  • Mercury Sagittarius: curious, honest, blunt
  • Venus Sagittarius: friendly and outspoken. It basically says that he rewards honest friendships with absolute loyalty but if someone tries to be emotionally possessive he's out of there, which is true (although I hope that'd be true of most people.)
  • Mars Capricorn: extremely ambitious, demands results??, cautious, can be judgmental (he's from Quebec, so)
  • Jupiter Scorpio: "you love to dig deep beneath surface appearances in order to find out what is really happening"
  • Saturn Aquarius: okay so there's a prominent "you're conservative and cautious and hate change" theme going on with these which is the antithesis of his nature, but. can't win 'em all.
  • Uranus Capricorn: hardworking, selfless, into giving things to people
  • Pluto Scorpio: "a period of intense research and discovery in areas that were heretofore considered mysterious, remote or taboo" what does this mean
  • N. Node Sagittarius: "You will probably have many different contacts and acquaintances throughout your life. You're quite gregarious by nature and your natural curiosity about others lets you take the lead in forming new relationships. You'll form close ties with those who have similarly idealistic ideas -- especially those who can stimulate you intellectually in your chosen field of interest. Your enthusiasm for learning new things may also cause you to do quite a bit of traveling. Because you probably will have many wide-ranging interests and concerns, you most likely will have contacts and connections in various parts of the country (or world)."

All in all, not bad considering I choose character birthdays arbitrarily.

i did this for my idiot child Venus. and boy, was it a wild ride. she's a scorpio. i'll be posting the ones that are primarily relevant to her, bc some were wildly off and had zero correlation to her behavior.

here u go, kiddos.

Rising Aquarius (15 degrees)

You like new ideas and concepts, but you prefer to discover them by yourself -- it is not easy for others to convert you to anything. You form your own opinions, but once you do form them, you then want to convince everyone else that they are correct. Try to be more tolerant of the opinions of others. You have a deep and abiding interest in science, mathematics, and the great social problems of the day. Very sympathetic toward the downtrodden, equality is your battle cry! You demand that those in authority be fair to all. You are an intellectual -- emotions and emotional people are difficult for you to understand. You are known for being calm, cool, detached and objective. you had me going until that last part. Venus is neither an intellectual or cool and calm, SSKSKSKS

Sun Scorpio (29 degrees)

Intense and complex by nature, you have extremely strong emotional reactions to most situations. Feelings are often very difficult for you to verbalize. Therefore you have a tendency to be very quiet - - to brood and think a lot. You seldom get overtly angry, but, when you do, you are furious and unforgiving. When you make an emotional commitment, it is total -- you are not attracted to superficial or casual relationships. If you are challenged, you take it as a personal affront and tend to lash out and fight back in a vengeful manner. You love mysteries and the supernatural. A good detective, you love getting to the roots of problems and you enjoy finding out what makes other people tick. You are known to be very willful, very powerful and quite tenacious! Venus is not quiet, whoever told you that is a lie. the rest of this is 100% accurate, however. she's the most emotional, ANGERY person on the earth.

Mercury Scorpio (16 Degrees)

You are a born investigator. You are fascinated by secrets and mysteries and unanswered questions of any kind. When you become upset or angry, your emotional reactions are overpowering -- reason and logic disappear in an uncontrollable passionate outburst. You tend to keep your thoughts secret and bottled up and this makes others regard you with suspicion. It is not that you are trying purposely to be evasive, it is just that you would rather not deal with the explosions and hassles that often occur when you reveal your true feelings and opinions. Your sense of humor tends toward sarcasm and irony.
pretty darn true. Venus does n o t know how to properly voice how she's feeling, and thus just sort of keeps it all in until an explosive episode occurs. she also doesn't know how to speak without being a sardonic asshole.

Venus Libra (14 Degrees)

A very friendly and outgoing person, you hate to be alone. Beware of a continuing tendency to compromise yourself in order to avoid being lonely. Try to be yourself, not what others would like you to be. You have an innate desire to be in refined and elegant surroundings and will go out of your way to create a plush and comfortable atmosphere around you. You have heightened aesthetic sensibilities and are attracted to music and the arts. Try to avoid using your well-known seductive charm in order to get out of doing what you consider to be dirty work! this one is wildly off but I had to include it LMAO. 'your well-known seductive charm' killed me because this bumbling idiot is anything but seductive or charming, good god

Jupiter Aries (26 Degrees)

The way that you grow and develop is by being an uncompromising individualist. You have a great need to be yourself and to explore your latent talents and abilities. Do not be afraid to let yourself go and develop self-confidence and pride in your accomplishments. But try not to become so self-centered that you ignore the needs of others. Also, you may have to build up your self-discipline in order to focus your energies properly. she a strong, free, independent woman who don't need no PEOPLE to help her get forward in life. damn right.

Saturn Taurus (12 Degrees)

Complete freedom of choice makes you ill at ease. You must have a firm, ordered, secure foundation in your life in order to feel comfortable. You do not adapt easily and tend to fear the new and untried. You constantly fear that you do not have enough (love, property, material things, etc.) and this makes you tend toward being selfish, withdrawn and stingy. If you try to surround yourself with supportive people in your environment, you will become more emotionally self-supporting true, true, and true. that is all i have to say.

thanks for coming to my TED talk, kids.

I LOVE astrology. Every time I look at my horoscope, it fits. Not to mention whenever there is an eclipse or serious astrological event, (tmi but) my cycle changes or gets flubbed up.

I am an Aquarius with a Cancer moon. I've noticed that the traits typically typed to a Aquarius Sun, tend to be what other people perceive of me, but I connect more personally with my moon sign more than I do my sun sign. I tend to come off to other people as closed off, walled up emotionally, not caring about what's going on around me, but I see myself, and only a couple other people, see me as very emotional, caring, almost over-aware of what is going on.

So I tend to focus more on my moon sign than my sun, but often times I'll look at the horoscope for my sun-sign on a day where I am getting nothing none, I'm not motivated, and I feel guilty for taking a break, and my horoscope will say

"You need to take a break. stop feeling guilty for taking care of yourself, giving yourself some time to breath for one day will not cause everything to come crashing down. This month is a stressful one for your sun sign."

and I'll just exhale and be like "wow, yeah... I didn't think of it like that" and it makes me feel better.

Hmm, I feel like doing this for a few of my characters so. I'm only going to do moon and sun signs.

Hadley Thatch

Sun is in 25 Degrees Aries.
By nature, you are very energetic and high-spirited. You are fiercely independent -- you must be first in everything you do, and you enjoy taking risks. You are the one who will rush in where angels fear to tread. Quite brilliant at initiating new projects, you are terrible at following them through to completion. You are an enthusiastic leader but you tend to be a reluctant follower. Often you are quick to anger, but you usually recover just as fast, regretting later things you said when you were upset. One of your best traits is that you are simple and direct, blunt and honest -- just be careful you do not hurt others' feelings. Your need to be competitive at all costs may provoke resistance from others, but, as long as you maintain your usual Sunny good humor, this should not prove to be a major problem for you.

Moon is in 06 Degrees Scorpio.
Your feelings are very intense, never superficial. You tend to be either very angry or very sad or completely and totally happy. Your moods are deep, extreme and not always completely understood by yourself or by those with whom you have to deal. Emotionally, you tend to prefer to live at the cutting edge of life, pushing your reactions to the ultimate extremes, even if the results are dangerous or upsetting. You are easily jealous and very suspicious -- you require a great deal of emotional reassurance. A good detective, you are very curious about deep and mysterious things, especially human nature and motivations. Be careful not to be ruthless, tactless or too overly frank or you will meet with much resistance from others.

Omg. I haven't done this before for many characters, but this...this is exactly Hadley, WOW. I didn't pick her birthdate based on sign, and never looked it up before, so her personality matching so well with this is just...amazing! I'm going to send it to the person I'm RPing her with because I know they'll understand it much better than someone who hasn't written with her but hahaha.

i looked up a more in-depth explanation for scorpio plutos because that confused me too and found, “Topics that capture their interest may include the occult, sex, the mind, death, genetic engineering, and cloning.” can’t wait for gabriel to get his hands on cloning. the rest of it basically says scorpio pluto traits are: strong and intense emotions/they make decisions based on their emotions, darker thoughts???, sometimes manipulative or controlling, strong sense of justice/fights for the underdog, passionate, and hates rules and the status quo. also does trying to figure out why a cult axe murdered you count as an interest in the occult
