In the last post, I was trying to answer the question of whether people born under the sign of Gemini are natural empaths. To me, a person who really isn't all that into astrology, that's like asking whether Geminis are all left-handed or brown-eyed.
What's more, I find that when I look at astrology descriptions, I can find aspects of my personality in practically any sign. I'm creative and generous (Leo), impatient (Aries), intuitive (Cancer and Pisces), sometimes secretive (Scorpio), intellectual (Aquarius), perfectionist (Virgo), and, oh, so modest (Virgo). Believe it or not, I was born under none of those signs. So, to say that one person fits only one sign doesn't make sense to me.
What makes more sense is to view the gift (or curse) of empathy as something that is developed over many lifetimes. Or, it could be triggered by some early life events in which the child needs to be able to "sense" the safety of his or her environment. Either way, I think being an empath has little to do with one's astrological sign.
Feel free to disagree. I can be, at times, very easygoing (Libra).
