Sun Signs and Sentimentality

Sun Signs and Sentimentality
We all carry the past inside us, but some of us parade our memories more obviously, decorating our homes with old family photos and mementos. Among all astrological signs, which are the most sentimental?

The absolute top of the list is Cancer, who never quite separates themselves from their childhood family memories. Like Pisces, they see everything backwards through rose-colored glasses, remembering the good times with ardent nostalgia.

Scorpio can also be surprisingly teary-eyed about the past. They may play a steely role, but they melt rapidly when reminded of fun days long ago. That said, the Scorpion also remembers slights and hurts, and will bring them up relentlessly even decades later.

Possessive Taurus will hang onto family mementos just as much as they hang onto everything else. The Bull has even been known to embellish old stories to make themselves feel better!

Aries, with Cancer ruling their house of family memories, are also soft-hearted when it comes to the past. In down moments, they'll pore over old photo albums and mementos. Even Gemini, not normally thought of as overly emotional, will do exactly the same thing.

Sagittarius doesn't mull much over the past -- except to keep in touch. Their way of hanging onto family memories is by written correspondence and phone calls, which helps them keep everything alive in the present.

Aquarius, with Taurus ruling their past, are not about to let any detail disappear from their mind. They may be coolly detached, but they can also be intense when it comes to family matters.

Libra and Leo wisely divide their family memories into "acceptable" and "best forgotten," so they can be very selective about what they keep -- or don't keep -- on the mantle.

In quiet moments, Virgo will be wistful and rather regretful about what has gone before. But they generally don't parade their feelings and prefer to keep their mementos well under wraps.

Capricorn tends to not recall their childhood too fondly, feeling like it was a difficult slog much of the time. And even though they tend to mellow a bit the older they get, they continue to prefer looking forward rather than backward.
