Deliberately Weighed

I'll say one thing for astrology, it means that absolutely everybody knows a little bit of Latin. Gemini are the twins, Capricorn is the goat, and Libra is the scales.

This means that when things are in equilibrium (or equi - librium) the scales are perfectly balanced. And it also means that when you have carefully weighed up an action, that action is therefore deLIBERate.

By extension, this ought to mean that anyone born between September 23rd and October 23rd was born deliberately.


  1. Because they were conceived on Christmas day?

  2. I thought equilibrium was when one has taken enough tranquillisers for a horse.

  3. Yes, I clearly remember insisting I was born. Belatedly I was. But at least it was on All Saint Day. Pretty liberal compromise.

  4. Oh, my birthday is the 23rd of October. I would only check horoscopes for a bit of fun, but they're dreadfully inconsistent. According to one source I'm a Libra, to another I'm a Scorpio
