Long ago, our ancestors gazed up to the stars to find the meaning and guidance that was hidden in their sparkly goodness. For in those celestial shapes they found wisdom and stories of great heroes and deeds. We are no different than our stargazing forefathers and those stars still hold many truths, waiting to be discovered.
The signs of the Nerdiac can give us great insights into our day to day living as well as the many talents and special qualities we posses as both people and geeks. Many ancient nerds believed that you could discover a great deal of relevant information about yourself through reading about your Nerdiac sign. So what sign are you?
January 20 to February 18
Those born under the sign of Batman have a high focus on intellect and perfectionism. Others may view them as eccentric or misunderstood. Many inventors, explorers, and caped crusaders are born under this sign, and with such a high level of focus, Batmen succeed in almost any area they devote themselves to, whether it be physical or mental. This trait is often a boon and a bane, as this level of focus also means that a person born under the Batman sign may have trouble letting go of past hurts and are often haunted by the things about their life they cannot change. Many extremes surround this sign, and these extremes can take them to heaven or hell. In everyday terms, most Batmen are humanitarian in nature and often devote themselves to helping others. They can also be objective in judgement, as they have a unique talent for burying their emotions in an inner cave. In romance, the Batman is unlucky. The extremes of their life often lead to quick and shallow relationships as many partners will not see beyond the mask of the billionaire playboy. Those lovers that are able to pierce the veneer will often be another Batman, (also sometimes called a Catwoman, for a female born under this sign,) and the relationship, though deep, will never be smooth. Batmen are happiest when they are useful and most have a strong sense of right and wrong. However, their single-minded obsessions can often lead to a life of insomnia, as those born under the Batman are the most likely to suffer from sleeplessness.
February 19 to March 20
Mysterious and alluring individuals, most Snapes are gifted in many ways, but still manage to spend most of their lives battling confusing conditions. Snapeans are frequently torn between two pathways in life, often mirroring their own conflicting desires to serve or rule. This can often lead to an almost dual life as villain and hero. This nerdiac sign is acknowledged as being the Saint and the Sinner rolled into one. Snape is the sign of the lost soul, the philosopher, the psychotic, and the visionary. As a credit to them, considering their many vulnerable characteristics, those born under Snape are incredibly adaptable and resilient. Many Snapeans can be amongst the top wizards of the world, but many can also be found in places such as Azkaban. One thing that plays havoc with the life of a Snapean is romance. They often replace fantasy for reality and this is especially true when it comes to relationships. A Snapean is more likely to pine for a person from a distance, unable to act on their feelings and yet equally unable to let them go. This can sometimes result in situations were a person born under the sign of Snape may be forced to help the offspring of a long lost love defeat a dark wizard, despite the conflicting emotions of hate and love they may feel for that child. Snapeans are the nerdiac's most sensitive sign, and should take extra special care, as nobody can beat them up, as much as they can beat themselves up, maybe with the exception of those kids from Gryffindor.
March 21 to April 19
Archaeologist is a desert sign and those born under it are regarded as adventurous, active, and outgoing. It won't matter where you go or how remote or unusual it is. From the Outback to the Antarctic, you can be sure that an Archaeologist has been there before you. Although they are independent, outgoing and assertive they are also surprisingly trusting, and at times will innocently walk into a temple of doom with no thought for their own safety. They love to discover new things, and very much believe these things should be shared with the world, because sometimes it really does belong in a museum. Yet, no matter what upheaval, challenge, or triumph that confronts them, Archaeologists have a wonderful ability to find their way through. Their faith in life and the future remains untouched by hardship, and their gift is such that with every new discovery the world is still a magical place (and there are sometimes aliens, but we try not to think about that one.) Archaeologist is also considered the most masculine of the nerdiac signs with females born under the signs sometimes called Crofts and men sometimes called Jones. In romance, Archaeologists are forceful, dynamic, and aggressive, and can often intimidate potential partners. For true happiness a person born under the Archaeologist sign needs a partner that balances their component traits (their true mirror reflection side). This balance can often be referred to as The O'Connells. Archaeologists are doers
rather than talkers
. They are the impulsive, act first, ask questions, or have doubts later. Their ability to live life close to the edge provides them with a wealth of real experience to call upon. Being active people Archaeologists cannot adapt to any kind of restriction, particularly possessive relationships. They often travel to escape any feelings of being stuck or possessed, even going so far as to jump out of their own office windows on occasion.
April 20 to May 20
Underneath their cool, calm, and logical exterior, Vulcans differ greatly from all the other signs of the nerdiac. Often times they will let others get close, but only so close as they want them. Some claim that trying to connect with a Vulcan on an emotional level is similar to trying to break through a Tholian Web, but that is not true at all. There is no such thing as an open-book Vulcan, but their feelings, fears, and desires often run far deeper than anyone around them would guess. In some ways, Vulcans have even deeper emotions than that of other humans. Their true spirit often remains hidden behind a veneer of day-to-day activities, which is why those born under the Vulcan sign can sometimes be perceived by others as withdrawn, boring, or even cold. In terms of the future, Vulcans hate the unknown and often strive to create tomorrow in advance, rather than leave it to fate. They do not normally seek adventure or the unknown, instead preferring a life where they can live long and prosper in other realms. In love, they are regarded as extremely sensual beings, but ones which only mate on average once every seven years. For most people, a relationship with a Vulcan will be defined by intellectual pursuits and based in cold hard reality, but when a Vulcan mates, they mate for life. It is the rare and lucky person, (friend or lover) for which a Vulcan will reveal his true inner self, because of all the souls you will encounter a Vulcan's will be the most human.
May 21 to June 20
Those born under the sign of Timelord are always on the move; thirsty for knowledge and new experiences. Terminally curious and sometimes even mischievous, Timelords are multi-faceted souls who enjoy knowing a little bit of everything. Those born under the sign of Timelord have also gained the reputation of being the incessant talkers, and have a special interest in anything foreign or unique in the universe. Their comfort zone has almost no boundaries, and as such when things often look their worse a Timelord will be in their prime. In love, they look for a companion who can keep up with them mentally and physically. Together with Skywalkers and Samwise, they are a sign that is often discussed, dissected, and sometimes even put down by the other signs of the nerdiac. This is sometimes a subtle form of jealousy by others, because Timelords lead very unique and unusual lives. Those born under this sign are lovers of adventure and game playing that involves out-thinking other people. Their personality usually appears mysterious or detached to others and therefore they are often misunderstood and unappreciated for the talents they offer to the world at large, but this does not mean they do not feel, for in fact they do have two hearts. Most members of this nerdiac sign simply hide their feelings behind their jovial and verbose natures. It is rare and often scary when a Timelord chooses to reveal any hurt, pain, or sacrifice they have been born. Good by nature, it is has been said, that even demons run when a Timelord goes to war
June 21 to July 22
Those born under the sign of River, are one of the nerdiac's enigmas. It is fair to say that most are a bundle of contradictions and mysteries. One moment, a River can be a child scared and alone, the next that same person can be capable of slaying a hundred Reavers. They invoke strong family ties, especially those between siblings. Those born under this sign are also incredibly intuitive to the point of being psychic. They can be compassionate and caring with friends and family, yet find a weakness that will cut you to your bone. The mood of a River is ever changing, making them endearingly eccentric and insecure. They are often described as an albatross, both lucky and unlucky depending on how they are handled. Rivers go through many phases of experience. Life doesn't stand still for this sign, and even if they remain in one place or on one ship, they live as much in their internal ocean of emotions as they do among reality. Their flow both up and down, like a leaf on the wind, most Rivers feel one way one minute, then sometimes totally different the next. With their changeable natures Rivers are fascinating, mysterious, stimulating and extremely alluring. This sign is one of the most magical of all and once their magic has reached you, they are the most beguiling partners and co-pilots you can hope to find out there in the black.
July 23 to August 22
Kingslayers are born fortunate. Charismatic and ambitious, they attract not only an abundance of friends and opportunities, but manage to survive life's stormy times with style and good humor. Once a Kinglsayer is committed to a relationship, no matter how incestuous it may be, they are totally devoted and faithful. Any born under this sign are often considered honorable, though others may find their honor to be a twisted sort of one. Much like their namesake who slew the mad king, Kingslayers will often taken measures that may seem extreme yet are entirely justifiable to themselves. In love, should their heart or trust be broken they will never forgive or forget. When a relationship breaks down (even a long standing one) they can disappear into the sunset without a backward look. For a Kingslayer, when a relationship is over, really over, it is over for good. Above all Kingslayers are trendsetters, leaders, and adventurers. Their weakness is their pride. Some sayings associated with those born under the Kingslayer are, "flattery will get you everything," and a "Kingslayer always repays his debts," in coin as well as blood.
August 23 to September 22
Samwise are often put down by many and perceived as being soft and provincial. But when a Samwise shines, there is practically no stopping their inner light. When a person born under this sign is confident within themselves they are the most successful, structured, and creative of all the signs. Many Samwise can be found working in the service to others, such as teachers, gardeners, and fellowship companions. One of the most magical characteristics of the Samewise is no matter how many times life turns sour on them, they still manage to maintain faith in others, refusing to become cynical. There is an ingenuity around this sign, a kind-heartedness, which unfortunately is sometimes played upon by others for their advantage. Samwise can often become victims of relationship power-games, where they are mistreated. Creative and sensitive, people born under Samwise are delicate, like rare and special orchids, and require individual treatment to fully blossom into their true unique beauty. Shy, they are happy to allow others to take center-stage and often generate their time and energy into making those they love happy or successful. They are givers and when the chips are down and you need someone to help you bear your burden to a mountain of fire, you want a Samwise. With them in your life, you have someone who understands and cares, and any romance or friendship based upon these qualities is certain to be mutually rewarding.
September 23 to October 22
Every adolescent Link's fantasy is to rescue the prince or princess of their dreams. As their lives unfold and the Song of Time is played, the experiences, false starts, dramas, broken heart pieces and disillusionment they encounter while seeking this personal quest, often shapes their futures in the most extra-ordinary manner. Love and love-lost (especially when lost to evil wizards) makes a big difference to someone born under this sign, although the happy-go-lucky appearance they present against all kinds of odds may not reveal this as fact. Links can switch off from the world, as easily as turning off a video game. Many who fall under the sign of Link can be difficult to fathom yet many Links often just don't express the more diverse sides to their personalities. Their charm can win jobs and provide powerful friends, whether Zora or Goron. It is a sad fact that many a Link's personal or business lives would fair far better if they remained alone, but for those who do find their secret dream and rescue their prince or princess, that's another story. What Links must always remember when looking to fulfil their dreams is that they should never undermine their own integrity, or anger the chickens. Life for a person born under Link is a true quest, and if they stick to it long enough, not only will they find their Master Sword, but reach their goals, no matter the adversity.
October 23 to November 21
Reputed to be the most powerful
sign of the nerdiac and the Jedi, Skywalkers lead fate filled lives and have intense and dramatic personal relationships. Even as children on Tatoonie, Skywalkers are often found to be wise beyond their years, and gifted pod-racers. Those born under this sign often know all the answers, yet they have difficulty finding what they need to develop their own happiness. Passion, desire, and power go hand in hand for those born under this sign. This often leads to many challenges and temptations, and a Skywalker's biggest test in life is choosing between the power of love and the love of power. Coming to grips with their extraordinary emotional depths and sensitivity isn't easy for those around them. They are different from all other nerdiac signs and this difference has them following a different path to their destiny. Others can often live with a Skywalker partner for years (and for many horribly acted scenes), but not really know them. Their eyes often blaze with feelings that words never express, and beware on the days or nights they hide their feelings behind dark helmets, as there is likely to be a force storm brewing. When you deal with a Skywalker you have to always deal with them on an intuitive level. They often wear a mask and occasionally a respirator, and too often say no
when they really mean yes
. Once they find true love they can be the most faithful and dedicated of all partners, but fall out badly with a Skywalker and you are likely to find your windpipe being crushed. They never forgive or forget. Most born under Skywalker are winners. The main thing they have to worry about is their attitudes, which make up their mind powers and can either make or break them for the dark or the lightside. When they are negative about something or someone, or critical of themselves, they can tend to get in their own way, because sometimes the only thing found inside the Cave of the Darkside is what you take with you.
November 22 to December 21
Airbenders possess a natural exuberance, sense of adventure, and love of life that makes them one of the most optimistic nerdiac signs of all. Like their element of choice, those born under this sign tend to blow toward whatever it is they find alluring, (a love partner, dream job, vacation,) and make it their own. Airbenders believe that anything is possible, and because of this belief system, they are adept at seeking out their own destiny. They are not blown by the winds of change, instead they control them and bend them to their will. Sometimes trying to tie down these free-spirited individuals is frustrating for those around them. Airbenders are happiest on the move, exploring new cultures and ideas and many are attracted to occupations related to travel, the media, outdoor work and philosophical pursuits. In love, they often shy away from being fenced in
, but once they find a partner who understands their needs to retain their own sense of self and identity, Airbenders can be the most big-hearted, generous and fun-loving companions of all. Although they are intellectually and spiritually advanced, they are notorious for their directness, which can sometimes be seen by others as a lack of tact. However, they are freedom loving, optimistic, and honest. Those born under Airbender are ruled by a wisdom all their own, and have an inherent need to develop their own unique philosophy of life.
December 22 to January 19
The sign of the high roller, Ironman is regarded as the nerdiac’s top in life and business achievers. Often the most hard-shelled and stubborn of the signs, it can be hard to get an Ironman to concede on any point, whether it be physically, mentally, or politically. Those born under this sign are often never content till they reach the top of whatever endeavour they are involved with. However with their stubborn nature also comes patience, an iron will, and repulsor cannons. They reach their goals because they know the longest journey commences with a single step and that the first step is always the most difficult. The one thing an Ironman must always try to do is balance work with play; otherwise they can become too one-sided, sacrificing one aspect for the other. Ironmen rise to the occasion when faced with a new task or deadline. Even if things go wrong, their ambition to reach the ultimate keeps them moving forever onwards and upwards. They are also innovators who are willing to think outside the box and try unusual approaches on their road to success in business or in love. Romantically, they desire a permanent relationship with someone who'll give them the affection they crave and often neglect to give themselves, but finding that person will be a road of trial and error, even if they have been staring you in the face, (getting your coffee, doing your work, being your right-hand under appreciated personal assistant,) all along. Although many Ironmen are borderline workaholics, this doesn't necessarily make them dull or gloomy. They have an offbeat sense of humor, which seems to erupt at the most unexpected moments. Their motivating force in life is success, money, status, authority and, although many might not admit it, love.
