The truth behind your crappy sun sign. Sick of reading the perky promises and positive affirmations that apply to your sun sign and then having a crappy week? After perusing your sun sign, are you the person who always moans, "I am soooooooo not a typical Aquarius!" If so, then Bad Birthdays is the antidote to your mistrust in the world of the zodiac. Revealing the truth (whether you like it or not) about your shitty star sign, Bad Birthdays uncovers the true quirks, oddities, and unpleasant nasties that characterize your unlucky sign of the zodiac and rule your destiny. When it comes to love, do you think that watery Pisces are naturally romantic lovers? Think again - if you're unfortunate enough to have a relationship with a Plagued Pisces or a Contemptible Cancer, you're in trouble. Reference the relationships sections to rate your compatibility with other star signs, or at least highlight where the cracks are going to show. With special sections detailing which unlucky personalities you share your birthday with, as well as unfortunate events that might have happened on your birthday, Bad Birthdays contains all you'll never need to know about your sign. So whether you're a Cursed Capricorn, a Tragic Taurus, or a Lousy Libra, we're all doomed to a destiny that is far less peachy than everyday astrologers would have us believe.
