Astro Sun Sign Query Du Jour: Parties

Filed in SUN SIGNS

Fashion People Partying ArtActually, this is more about the Elements; Fire, Air, Earth & Water.

My theory is that the Fire Signs charge in shrieking shitloads of darlings and/or doing hale & hearty guffaws, slapping peeps on the back. Then after a bit of bragging, they’ll insist on dancing and have no probs tearing up rugs or furniture if it gets in the way of their moves.

Earth Signs care more for the food, drink & music component of a gathering and if peeps aren’t getting enough to eat, an Earth Sign will front the host/hostess about it. Ditto if they think the plants need watering or there is an issue with the catering. They also like to check out the decor.

Air Signs like to put on a dazzling display of their Power of Glib, do some info-brokering, network, tell jokes and gossip. If there is nobody interesting enough for them to talk to, they’ll sulk and it doesn’t matter how lavish the surroundings or fab the food etc.

Water Signs are all about the emo & pulling. Shortly after arrival they will be holed up in the corner hearing someone’s completely lurid confession, nodding tearily at the details and/or holed up in the bedroom getting to know their latest conquest.

This is totally off the top of my head. Fair cop or utterly inaccurate raving astro-cliches?

Too true! Sun in Scorpio, Leo Ascendant, Moon in Cap so the night starts out food/drinking, devolves into dancing, which then turns into either a conversation curled up on a couch or furious mackin’ somewhere else. Too too too true.

Nico, I am also a Gemini who doesn’t like parties. I don’t like crowds or large groups, i hate small talk about crap and I hate deep and meaningfuls with people I barely know. i much prefer spending an arvo in the kitchen with one or two close friends cooking and listening to music. I ONLY like parties if there’s excellent danceable music, and then all I’ll do is dance. i always used to feel like a failure at parties, and then last year, after excusing myself unfeasibly early from the last party I went to, it clicked. I just… Read more »

Virgo… & to me, if the music sucks or the place seems dirty or there isn’t anywhere to sit, I’m OUT.

It’s true, I prefer personal confessions being made to me to going under in big laughing groups… But dancing is a must, now that my shiness has finally been overcome at the ripe age of 27… 😉

couldn’t give a stuff about the food. Food repulses me once i start drinking.

Music is VERY important though. It’s what gets me on the dance floor and it’s THE best place to pull. You can suss out a guy’s dance moves. Good dancer = good in bed… usually. 🙂

I’m a gemini and don’t much like parties. I can do them, if i have to, but have certainly found as I’ve gotten older that I can’t really be arsed with all the having to circulate and engage in banal chit chat. I realise I sound like i’m some imposter pretending I’m a gemini. I’ll happily go to a pub and talk to random strangers around me about anything and everything, but when faced with a room full of people I kind of know who I then feel like I have to have conversations with about work or what things… Read more »

I know a gem a bit like that. She alternates between being either unbelievably charming and witty if the mood strikes her to openly disagreeable if something’s not right. She also prefers smaller groups where she can more feasibly be the life of the party. Parties in my experience are a bit hit and miss. It depends on the vibe, if there’s any like minded people, my own mood etc. Being taurus sun I think I fall back on the food/drink stuff if I’m feeling insecure. I also have a lot of air and fire so I usually gravitate towards… Read more »

I’m Aries and I like other people to come to me!

I mean that in the nicest way possible.

As an earthsign I am *terribly* impressed by good food, drink & music, though I consider dancing to be essential to music appreciation in some contexts.

When I was younger I used to get much more into the emo/pick-up dramas…I wonder if that was my watery rising expressing itself?

i always get cornered. never intentionally it just somehow happens the very milisecond i come into a party. the rest of the time is spent trying to extracate myself from the cornering (once confession/no confession is revealed) only to get cornered once again.

prowlncat
prowlncat

me too!! but I’m brilliant at getting myself uncornered thanks to Saggo Moon, or maybe it’s the Leo Merc? Who knows … I just bluntly excuse myself. The bathroom’s my favourite extradition tactic. Also … oddly, I’m good at spotting when my friends are in a cornered situ and can’t get out and frequently rescue them by rushing up all gushy and whatnot and whisking them away to Do Something Important…hehe

prowln, maybe it’s a Sagg moon thing. I do this too.

haha… yeah definitely a Sagg moon. I’m the same. Lot of peeps here with Sagg moon i’ve noticed.

i kid you not prowlncat, i excuse myself to find my friend, to phone someone,go to the toilet..and they ask if they can come!

well pisceaness looks like you need a friend with a Saggo moon to cart around to parties with and save you from dreary party stalkers …. hehe

Yeah having a Gem Asc I do initially tend to “do the circuit”, scanning for whom to talk to/hit on/avoid … the Cancer sets in later when I’m done with the chit chat and want to settle in the corner for deep and meaningfuls. I’m VERY fussy about whom to sit next to at dinner parties and almost have a coniption when it’s pre-arranged as have this phobia of getting stuck next to the fat guy with bad breath and someone just … dull.

Yes that’s me, the earth sign. I always plant myself right next to the food table or circulate with the intention of always being in front of the waitress with finger food. I also sticky beak at people’s houses and usually asked for a tour so I can check out any renovations that they’ve done or look at what works in their decor wise (so I can pinch ideas for my house). I think I might be a terrible guest Lol.

Once, back then, my crowd had ‘bring a dish and bottle’ evenings and it was an interesting astro exercise watching signs and choices as to what each sign thought appropriate and who ate what etc….

I don’t hang with that crowd now. They were mostly couples. Interesting how when one becomes a widow very few invitations come from the married circuit. They were all there 5 years ago with ‘soup and sympathy’ and I’ve hardly seen them since. I think they imagine that one might latch onto their men…chees, mostly I can’t understand why the silly women found their men attractive in the first place…..if at all.

cheshire cap, I found the same thing when I was single in my mid 30s!

I was especially appalled because I always included my single mates in things when I was in coupledom (all through my 20s). For example, if partner & I had a holiday house for a week, I would invite a single gf for a couple of days, cos singles can’t afford to rent a house & it’s fun to do girlstuff on hols. Once I was single, I was lucky to get invited for coffee!

not just divorce and widowhood – it is so true though, like one is some kind of man-eating misfit who is no longer capable of joining in the conversation if you haven’t got a partner. I can’t generalise too much, my crowd is pretty cool at the moment

Yeah, it knocks one’s self esteem a tad and makes one wonder if these silly be-arches were really trying to hit on one’s missing partner. Two married couples have stayed staunch and I so love and value them. The Sagg psych who introduced me to alpha tauri is half of one of these couples. Over the last five years I’ve collected a fantastic group of new friends like the Storm Troopers.

I wonder if it is in part that coupled/reproducing friends think you’ll be bored?
I recently spent a weekend at parties for marriages and babies, surrounded by old friends who also happened to be new/expectant parents. As the only single person there, (and also I don’t live in the same city anymore) I felt a bit like I was phoning in from another planet.
And they could all tell.

and living in a country town as I do and being sort of high profile, the word is spreading that I’m “seeing someone” and a few of the missing legions have been making overtures like “we must catch up soon”….I don’t fuqing think so!!

This earth sign only cares about food drink music if organising the party. If it’s someone else’s party, I couldn’t care less. If it’s a crap party, I’ll stay a polite while then I’ll thank her/him for invite and leave but won’t ever tell the host/hostess why. If I’m hungry, I’ll maybe go out and find somewhere to grab a bite, then go back if the music people and dancing are fun. When I was lots younger the party bore would always seem to find me and I had no defense strategies but I soon sort them now. I’m normally… Read more »

ha ha. i think i start the night fire (aries sun) – big entrance, hale & hearty, showing off (rather than bragging) and grabbing the centre of convos. often mid-party i’m all air (lib rising) sulking cos there’s no one interesting enough to talk to! gawd, more than once. if on a good run, i’ll finish it fiery water (scorpy moon) pissed, lurid confessions, dancing and thinkin about sexy business OR at home sulking, dark and dramatic, perhaps txting a booty call to make it all seem better… an interesting spin on this mystic would be about what yr like… Read more »

Absolutely agree with all of those. In fact I can think of every element I know & it fits. I know the fire signs who tear up the dance floor & take the room apart to do so. earth signs will drink you under the table & eat everything in sight. I’m air so I totally get the chatties suss out who’s interesting & then get into a bit of mischief with them if I can help it. water signs, the amount of times I have been cornered by a water sign!! Just have some fun no bloody deep &… Read more »

Yup. What’s the point of a party without pretty people to ogle and the possibility of some pulling action later on? The chatting, food, dancing etc is all in aid of that … isn’t it? (water sign here) What, you mean the other signs aren’t just out to get laid?!? strange.

lib rising ramzilla
lib rising ramzilla

does this mean that non-single or sexually satisfied waters will never come to party? that would be sad!

tati
tati

we are *never* sexually satisfied, don’t believe what they tell you 😉 and even if “non single” we are still looking.

well, I can’t speak for cancers or pisces.

actually no-one can speak for pisces, they are craaazy. my pisces ex was definitely always looking.

we are always weighing you up for sexual possibilities, put it that way. can’t help it. like taureans can’t help eyeing up that cake.

I find parties pretty much a reflection of my life, just with more music…and it’s a little more condensed. Meaning the weird stuff that is normally scattered over a day or two seems to all happen within a couple of hours.

Me a Sag & Pisces Rising. I don’t necessarily come in all hale & hearty – not if it’s a party where I don’t know many peeps – but EVERY time I get people giving me their true confessions of one sort or another. Hadn’t thought of it until you wrote it down. Wowee.

Hmmm I have absolutely no fire in my chart whatsoever but will always dance. I will often be the first person on the dance floor. I love the energy of a good dance. There’s an exchange of energy with other people when you’re dancing. I don’t particularly care what the music is. I used to be a music snob but that gets boring.

I like talking too. I like listening. I tend to switch between having witty glib conversations with groups and one on one deep and meaningfuls. But then I’m all water and air (apart from being virgo rising.)

unpredictable pisces

yep – if there’s no Flirt Potential, or at least eye candy, good music, crowd with wierdness potential, it’s instantly No Fun. If you iron your jeans before coming to a party of mine, you won’t be let in the door. ditto if you expect to ‘just drop in’ before heading off somewhere else.. I would prefer you arrive late and stay REALLY late 🙂

I do love a good tete-a-tete at parties though. But not dragging on so long as to stop me from finding new fun people.

hahahaha, funny and TRUE. as an air sign thats so me, i get in there first with the catch ups and le gossipue and then scan the room for a. outfits. b. brains, then once the fire signs have got the dancing going and warmed things up, im there on the dance floor kind of getting the movers to move over a bit and make some room for the new movers. i stay in fire then, no emo no skulking none of that just dancing. unless the music is horrible, then i sulk. i can tolerate any kind of party… Read more »
