What´s your Zodiac Sign? I´m a Taurus (Libra rising / Pisces Moon) and my personality Type is INFJ. As you can see, I´ve been thinking about that kind of stuff for quite some time. I don´t actually believe in astrology, such as daily horoscopes and all of that stuff and I´m not a fan of categorizations. However, reading about the different Zodiac Signs and their attributes made me think about just how diverse we can be. We have very different ways of dealing with emotions, different ways of expressing them and I´m convinced that 99% of our everyday battles and at least half of our inner struggles are due to misunderstandings. Actually, most people are quite honest when it comes to their personalities and how they function. Most of the time you meet new people, random strangers willingly hand you a manual on how to treat them right. The true question is: can you take it serious even though you´re quite different? Can introverts and extroverts take each others point of view serious? How about men and women, culture A and culture B or black and white skin? How about fans of different sports-teams, lovers of different genres of music? Why even bother with that question on such a small scale when there are bigger conflicts raging all over the globe? Because it´s the same Devil in different Details - and I believe in a quotation from Tolkien´s Hobbit: "Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay… small acts of kindness and love

Don´t just tollerate one another, smiling mechanically while secretly deeming everyone else to be crazy. Whatever people tell you, it´s their very own perception of reality and themselfes. Honestly appreciate their points of view - you can, if you just reflect upon you and your own quirks and faults. That´s what we lack on a major scale, so start doing it on a smaller level! Today!
