Why do some women ask men their astrological sign?
There's a certain degree of fatalism that's incorporated into our culture (and by our I mean, any culture that promotes romance and love stories). When people are in love many talk about it as finding their "soulmate", they say it was "meant to be".Media commonly presents love not as a series of everyday coincidences and mutual interests that lead to two people forming a partnership but as something that was predestined. If I were to believe the romantic movies I grew up with I would believe that if I just waited patiently enough the "right man" would come along.This attitude can be of great consolation to single people who do not want to be alone. The number of women who feel compelled to say to me "don't worry, soon you'll meet the one" as if they've read my script beforehand is overwhelming.So why then do some women ask men about their birth dates? Well, astrology plays into this concept of fatalism. If your predetermined soul mate is out there somewhere, if your romance is as they say, "written in the stars" wouldn't it be helpful if there was some guide to help us determine who those people were? We meet a lot of people, after all, and historically I and many other people have been bad judges of character so why not make the selection criteria a little more...magical?I personally believe astrology is a load of bull. I get annoyed when men try to make some connection with me because they're a Cancerian and I'm a Leo or some such crap. If you have nothing more to connect with me on than your birthday we should probably find other people to talk to. However, in those cute flirty moments where I might be feeling a little down about myself and might be angling for a kiss maybe the fact that some star is moving in line with Jupiter and I've had a little too much wine will allow me to fall for a short time for the guy sitting across from me who has zero else in common with me. Maybe. Let's hope I'm not there yet.

What is my astrology sign if I was born November 22, 1950 at 10:14 in the morning?
As others have pointed out, it is impossible to tell whether you are a Scorpio or a Sagittarius without the place of your birth.The following chart shows that the Sun moved into Sagittarius at 9:02:30 pm on November 22, 1950 in the GMT time zone. The GMT time zone is 00 time. For that reason it is also known as Universal Time. In order to determine whether you are a Scorpio or a Sagittarius you will need to convert the time zone from the GMT time zone to the time zone of the place where you were born. One such calculator is The Time Zone Converter. Set the local time to GMT and the converted place to the place of your birth. If you were born before 9:02 pm at that place you are a Scorpio--if after 9:02 pm you are a Sagittarius.For instance, if you were born in Delhi, India your birth time would be 3:44 pm. In that case you would be a Sagittarius. If you were born in Los Angeles, California your birth time would be 3:14 am. You would then be a Scorpio.I wanted to show you this information so you would understand how the time and place of birth make a big difference in your birth chart. Of course a simpler way to determine your Sun sign is to go to Horoscope and Astrology - Homepage - Astrodienst and enter your birth information in a birth chart calculator.
What's the most neurotic astrological sign?
I doubt it is your sign that causes the issue.
Should or is astrology sign based on actual birthdate or expected due date? Some people say I act other sign?
Yes, Yes..this is often asked. And often answered. The moment a child comes into the world, enters through the birth canal, breathes air on it's own, becomes it's own being without the life support of its mother and begins its own life, that is when the child's natal chart is formed. You're personality may not match the characteristics usually noted for your Sun sign simply because you have 10 or so other placements and a potential of a dozen aspects that can impact your personality. Everyone does. That's why "Sun sign astrology", the astrology that "skeptics" like to pan on, is not true astrology, but only one very small facet of the big picture. It's like attempting to describe a person's appearance by just their hair color....doable, but not accurate. If you would like to learn more about the placements of real astrology, you can go to http://www.astro.com.

What evidence do you have that suggests that the astrological signs are probably less than 4000 years old?
I'll avoid the semantics of astrology and astronomy, because, in my opinion, that is irrelevant for this question. No doubt sky watchers probably saw patterns in the stars for as long as humankind has been able to imagine anything. Think of it as the original "ink-blot test." I would say, and some ancient texts would (depending on interpretation) suggest that humans saw patterns in the sky long before any astrological or astronomical practices began. So which came first? The stars controlling us? Or the scientific explainataion of the heavens? Too tough to call. But no doubt, astrology probably took off faster. Science was not yet really estalbilshed in a methodical way, and "the mystery of the universe" had more pull on people in the distant past. The astrological signs, that, for whatever reasons are still used today (see Phil Plait's assessment on the absurdity of astrology, if you wish to learn more about how it has zero scientific merit) probably originated with the ancient Greeks. For the most part, it is their constellations we use, and their planets too... only, with the planet names we traditionally know them today as their Roman gods designations, rather than their Greek ones. So, all you need to do to pinpoint the time period, is research the origins and time periods the Greek Mythologi

What do you think about the zodiac signs?
This is a very broad question. And I am not sure exactly what context you’re interested in.On one level, the 12 signs of the zodiac represent certain qualities. Some use the word “archetypes” but I personally don’t like that term.And each zodiac sign has either a fire, earth, air or water as a primary quality. And cardinal, fixed or mutable qualities in a secondary capacity.When people talk about their zodiac sign (e.g. “I am an Aries”) it means the Sun was in Aries on their day of birth.The trouble is, some people consider Sun signs, by themselves, as being “astrology” in total. Far from it. Your Sun sign is the tip of the iceberg.It is your whole horoscope which is important. So while your Sun might be in Aries, what about your Moon, Mercury, and other planets - what signs are they in? What aspects do they make? What houses are they in?So I think zodiac signs are just one part of the complex language of astrology. They should never be used in isolation.
