Tilting the scales.

Never mind how careful you are behind the wheel or how long you've been driving, the signs of the zodiac may be bigger factors behind your ability to avoid car crashes -- or why you have too many.

According to a study by, a Web site that quotes drivers on insurance rates, astrological signs are a significant factor in predicting car accidents.

The study, which looked at 100,000 North American drivers' records from the past six years, puts Libras (born between Sept. 23 and Oct. 22) followed by Aquarians (born between Jan. 20 and Feb. 18) as the worst offenders for tickets and accidents.

Leos (July 23-Aug. 22) and then Geminis (May 21-June 20) were found to be the best overall.

heheh.. this puts me in the second worst bucket :)

But its funny how when we run out of exlanations we run towards the stars ;)
If we go by that then each and every good/bad thing that is happening to uscan be blamed on the zodiac.
So why to try and earn something ?
You will get it if its in your stars, else just give up from the beginning ;)
