YOUR STAMP HOROSCOPE - STAMP STAR SIGNS

By CyberStamp Club

ARIES THE RAM

(21 March 20 April)

Planet Mars

Birthstone: Diamond

Arien stamp collectors are friendly and compelling. They have strong opinions about their stamps which they are willing to defend through thick and thin they have a great sense of urgency to fill up all gaps. They are not the most patient of collectors. On the other hand they are extremely loyal to the hobby, the clubs and associations to which they belong, and are very helpful with their advice.

TAURUS THE BULL

(21 April 21May)

Planet Venus

Birthstone: Sapphire

Taurean philatelists are even-tempered, solid and reliable in all aspects of the hobby. They are not great worriers over detail, and are quite content to take things as they come. But if they don't want to do something - like virtual philately for instance, nothing will make them change their minds. Other collectors may find them stubborn to deal with but they think of themselves as fair and practical. They create harmonious looking albums and stamp exhibits.

GEMINI THE TWINS

(22 May 21June)

Planet Mercury

Birthstone: Agate

As befits their sign, Gemininians are interested in both Country and Thematic collecting. They are usually interested in all aspects of philately and have many different projects running at the same time. However, their interests are often only temporary. Virtual philately really appeals to them. They hate being bored and don't like routine. They display a good sense of humor which shows in their clever stamp write-ups and well thought out presentations. They do appreciate the value of tact but are often regarded as restless club members.

(22 June 23July)

Planet Moon

Birthstone: Ruby

Cancerians are sensitive collectors who are easily hurt by criticism. Then they will withdraw into themselves as the crab does into its shell.

They have a fine sense of humour and enjoy cartoon philately.

LEO THE LION

(23 July 23 August)

Planet Sun

Birthstone: Topaz

Leos are very proud philatelists (as opposed to "stamp collectors"). Occasionally, they may even seem arrogant. The lion is the "King of the Beasts", so people born under this sign fall naturally into the "King of Hobbies". They accept club responsibilities readily and enjoy being in the limelight. Usually truthful, they make good competition judges. They say what they mean, whether this is a compliment or a criticism.

VIRGO THE VIRGIN

(24 August 23 September)

Planet Mercury

Birthstone: Jade

Virgoans, as hobbyists, are perfectionists. They do not relax easily and often feel awkward in show crowds, stamp expos or club events. They like everything to be exactly right and are disappointed when this is not so. They take a great interest in what is happening in the stamp world, but manage to keep pretty much to themselves and their own immaculate collections.

LIBRA THE SCALES

(24 September 23 October)

Planet Venus

Birthstone: Opal

Librans love to ague and debate about stamps. They have logical minds and although sometimes stubborn, try to be fair in all their stamp dealings. They dislike making decisions, however, as they can usually see both points of view. Their collections are often artistic, exuding charm and balance. They dislike impatience if they are holding the floor and are apt to be envious of other people's stamp collections.

(24 October 22 November)

Planet Pluto

Birthstone: Aquamarine

SAGITTARIUS THE ARCHER

(23November 21 December)

Planet Jupiter

Birthstone: Turquoise

Straight-shooting Sagittarians are usually the most outspoken at stamp meetings. They are not at all malicious, however. They speak the way they do about their favorite topic in complete innocence.

They are impulsive stamp buyers and are often angry when they cannot get what they want at stamp auctions.
