Daily Prompt Custom Zodiac You’re tasked with creating a brand new astrological sign for the people born around your birthday — based solely on yourself. What would your new sign be, and how would you describe those who share it?

(I would describe those who share my “custom” zodiac sign as people who do not want to write this prompt describing themselves.)

She was very excited having learned that she’s a Scorpio with Castor rising, meaning that she’s intellectual, sexy and will achieve in life. She had just called her boyfriend to let him know her great news. She’s on her way home in her little Scion XA, tooling along on the 405 toward San Pedro, listening to Whitney Houston at top volume, singing along, loud enough to get the coyotes howling as she passes by their canyon island habitats. “I will always love YEW-oooo-ooooo-OOOO!” […]
