The Judge John Hodgman podcast covers the topic of astrology. Imra (I'm guessing on the spelling?) is a witch with an astrologer mom and she is annoyed that Lily is a Taurus but doesn't want to be a Taurus. Lily is all "everyone says Tauruses are boring and stubborn," and that she wants to be an Aquarius because she relates to being detached and weird. Lily just wants to tell everyone she's an Aquarius instead. Is that okay?
I'm with Imra on being annoyed here. Some supposed astrologer in the crowd said that you could just like, pick your own new birthday or some shit (what?) and even under those definitions, Lily still ain't an Aquarius. Imra says that Lily does have some Taurus traits and it's entirely possible if they get her birth certificate and check that she's either an Aquarius rising or Aquarius moon. Which I totally concur with, though I will also mention "has Uranus in the first house" (like me) as another possibility. If I had to pick I'd guess moon.
JJH, having no clue about such things, decided that Lily can do what she wants. I say he's totally wrong. My verdict would be that Lily has to get her chart done (astro.com will do it for free!), see if she has anything officially Aquarian, and THEN can claim "I'm a Taurus but Aquarius rising and moon" (or whatever it is) officially. That way she won't get laughed at by all the pagans, which I'm sure Imra knows. Or for that matter, anyone who goes, "that's not your birthday." C'mon.
In another super amusing note, bailiff Jesse Thorn and I were suspecting the same thing and guessed correctly: Lily has the same birthday as the both of us, April 24! Hahahahahahah CALLED IT. Birthday triplets.
Oh, and Lily? Tauruses aren't all boring. Lord knows I'm a fucking weirdo (see Uranus in first house) and probably not boring most of the time. Stubborn, however...no comment :)
