June the Fourth - Just One of Those Days


In the space of a year during 1980 and 81, I met three young men who were born on June 4, and whose fathers were firemen.

In 1983 I dated a fellow for about 6 months whose birthday was October 12, 1963. I moved away and my subsequent boyfriend's birthday was October 12, 1961.

I've met three assertive A-type women whose birthdays fall on March 21. The characteristics of the third woman I met were so similar to the other two I was able to guess her birth date once she told me she'd been born in March.

I don't really believe in Astrology but when coincidences like these happen it makes me wonder. It seems something's being orchestrated in the stars.

Maybe somebody reading this is adept at reading charts and can glean something from this. If so, my birthday is June 26, 1962.

I have no idea about astrology but I love your photograph today, xv.

I'm sceptical about things like that but it doesn't stop me from reading horoscopes and believing in them a little - if they're positive :-)

You're a Cancer!

I was born 20 Oct 1956, which makes me a Libra.

I certainly think certain signs are attracted to one another.

Which reminds me, I am overdue for a Gemini post!

Hmmm, I wish I knew more about Astrology.
I do believe people have similarities when born areound the same day as you...and have definite character trates which have similarities.
My Birthday is April 1st and I have only ever met one other lady who has my birthday(although I'm sure there are lots more)
I have a good friend who always enlightens me with information about the stars.
Sorry I haven't visited in a while...I've missed reading your posts daily...but am back.
Love the photograph!
Char.

I've not much to add re: astrology having had to hear/read/put up with some people's obsession, particularly poets, with it. Yes, I do look at mine in the newspapers but usually at end-of-day, an often-amusing punctuation point. But really lured here to say thanks for image by (one) favorite photographer..he was in Jerusalem but you probably knew that...

Char, my b-i-l's birthday is April 1st. Are you hard working and driven? Do you believe every cloud has a silver lining?

Two of my best friends are in your neighborhood tho' not on the same day. The first was born June 23rd. She's artistic (graphic designer, teaches at Art Center in Pasadena), has alot of physical problems related to her spine and is gregarious and self-involved. The other was born June 29th. She is a very hard worker, very driven, scared of becoming a bag lady although she never will. She has a partner with whom she's lived 15 yrs. She's athletic, energetic and cranky as all get out.

i love astrology. I'm a Scorpio. We rule the sex organs (or so I'm told) hahahahaha!!

California Girl said...

btw, I think your opening line is a grabber.

The Clever Pup said...

California Girl - interesting. Despite the 3 day difference. I'm fairly artistic and self-involved and have had trouble with my spine.

I know nothing at all about astrology other than LEO's Are The Best![my birthday is 30th July!]

Baino said...

Now here's another weird thing, I have a friend who's birthday is on 25th June, he's artistic, self involved and broke his back in a rugby accident! Whoooooo! Spooky! I'm a Libran and besides having the awful link to a feminine hygeine product, I always, always, always, see both sides of the argument.

dear pup, hope you get good tidings sometime soon in the post...i think there is something about the movements of the stars that really does echo, deeply, in our lives...how fascinating that we might think they wouldn't, really...how can they not? shouldn't we simply look up and know? if only it were that easy!

wonderful post

Chrisy said...

According to a biiigggg book I have here...your perfect star sign for a partner is a Scorpio, born October 23 to November 22...

I had two boyfriends, one after the other whose birthday was November 4 (Scorpio). When the second one told me his birthday was Nov 4, I said, "You just made that up!" much to his surprise....then I realized he was serious. Both men were the most self centered, egotistical, provocative people I've ever known. No More Scorpio men for this Leo woman...we definitely don't get along!!!
