S1E27 - Talking Zodiacs w/ the Bewitches (Part 1)

Episode Description:

I am joined again by the Bewitches (Katrina, Leah, and Bailey). We discuss Astrology and reveal our Sun, Moon, and Rising (i.e. our Zodiac signs). We are most definitely not professionals. In fact, I didn’t know there were other signs and different elements associated with the signs. I’m also very skeptical about Zodiacs, but there definitely were some eerily accurate descriptions of me based on my results. Let us know on social media how you felt about the episode and whether you agree with your signs or not.

This is the website we used to figure out our signs:


Some parts of the transcript may be edited for better readability, but the content remains the same. Mostly removed duplicate words, vocal filler words, and added/removed some words for clarification.


Hey, everyone! This is Meliza, and I'm the Talkative Introvert. In today's episode, I am joined again by my girls and we talk about our Zodiac signs. I don't know anything about astrology. And I'm very skeptical of it. However, it was pretty eerie how accurate my results were. But we'll get into that.

Joining me today are the bewitches again. We got Bailey, Katrina a.k.a. Casey and Leah a.k.a. Louie.

Bailey 00:35

What the hell I don't get a nickname?

Meliza Manalo 00:37

Well, what do you want to be called baby?

Bailey 00:41

You can call me BJ.

Leah 00:43


Bailey 00:43

My specialty. Oh!

Meliza Manalo 00:47

All right. So, today we're gonna talk about our zodiac. All right, so who knows the most about zodiacs? I don't know anything about it.

Katrina 00:54

I mean, I know only for like myself.

Leah 00:58

Yeah, Casey would.

Katrina 00:58

I know a lot for Aries. I guess.

Meliza Manalo 01:01

But what is so... Since we're gonna do Sun, Moon and rising. what is Sun Moon and rising?

Bailey 01:07

I don't want to touch it...

Katrina 01:08

Well, I'm not really familiar with Sun, Moon and Rising. I just really know my sun, I guess. Go ahead, Bailey.

Bailey 01:16

Okay. So, your sun sign....

Katrina 01:18

I think she was raising her hand.

Meliza Manalo 01:19


Bailey 01:19

You sun sign is your true core self.

Meliza Manalo 01:24

Your sun sign. Okay.

Bailey 01:26

Your Moon represents your inner emotional self.

Meliza Manalo 01:30


Bailey 01:31

And your rising is how others perceive you/your social personality. So, like what comes outward.

Meliza Manalo 01:44


Leah 01:44

For your rising?

Bailey 01:45


Meliza Manalo 01:46


Katrina 01:46

I need to know myself.

Leah 01:47

I think it's so much better.

Katrina 01:51

Just knowing my rising, I'm just like, Oh.

Meliza Manalo 01:54

So, I don't know if I agree with my rising and my moon.

Bailey 01:57

Well, let's talk about it.

Meliza Manalo 01:59

Okay. (Laughter)

Katrina 02:01

Wait, what is Sun again?

Bailey 02:02

Sun is like your true self.

Katrina 02:04


Bailey 02:04

So, like that's the sign. So, yours is Aries cuz your birthday is in April.

Meliza Manalo 02:09

So, do you wanna explain yours since you have all the notes and stuff?

Bailey 02:13


Meliza Manalo 02:14


Bailey 02:17


Meliza Manalo 02:18

Cuz all I know is that you're a Leo. But that's because of your birthday.

Bailey 02:20

Yes, ma'am. Okay, so do you want me to... does each person want to do all three or should we like all... so like my sun in that and like everyone's together. Do you want that?

Meliza Manalo 02:28

Oh, yeah, okay. Let's do that.

Leah 02:29

Yeah, yeah, let's do one at a time.

Bailey 02:31

Okay, cool. Ahem. Are we saying birthdays or no?

Meliza Manalo 02:35


Bailey 02:36


Meliza Manalo 02:36

Probably not. I don't know. I feel like that's your PII stuff.

Bailey 02:40

Too much information. TMI, TMI. Please don't steal my identity. Actually, please do because I have so much debt. (Laughter) Just wipe it out.

Meliza Manalo 02:51


Bailey 02:51

Put a cherry on top of this wonderful year. Okay, so my sun sign is Leo which is a fire sign. And... Oh, and by the way, we all got our charts from...

Meliza Manalo 03:04

What's it called?

Bailey 03:04

What's it called? It's called Astro...

Leah 03:06


Bailey 03:07

Astrolabe. So, check it out.

Meliza Manalo 03:12

I'll put it in the show notes.

Bailey 03:13

Ruby 3. That's how... that's why you're the professional here.

Katrina 03:17

Cuz you think of these details.

Bailey 03:19

Okay. So, sun sign Leo, which is a fire sign. Um... So, center of attention. (Link barking)

Leah 03:28

Link's a Leo.

Bailey 03:30

Very spirited, willful, proud, and demanding. Yes, that's all me. (Laughter)

Leah 03:36

I think we've already established that this morning. (Laughter)

Bailey 03:46

Strong demeanor. Like kind of aggressive.

Meliza Manalo 03:50

Okay. Like comes out as aggressive.

Bailey 03:52

Theatrical, overly hard-headed, ostentatious, domineering, motivated by inspiration and aspirations.

Meliza Manalo 04:05

Do you agree with all that?

Bailey 04:06

I mean, yeah, obviously. (Laughter) And I probably figured all of that out from the first five minutes of this. Do you guys agree with it?

Meliza Manalo 04:15


Leah 04:16

I would. I think so. Yes. (Laughter)

Bailey 04:20

Okay, next.

Katrina 04:22

So, I am Casey. I'm an Aries. (Laughter) I don't know what I'm saying.

Meliza Manalo 04:29

Hi Casey.

Bailey 04:29

Hello, I'm Casey and I'm an Aries. Hi Casey!

Leah 04:33

Hi Casey!

Bailey 04:34

Is the zodiac anonymous?

Katrina 04:38

My sun sign is an Aries. "By nature, you are very energetic and high-spirited. You are fiercely independent -- you must be first in everything you do, and you enjoy taking risks. You are the one who will rush in where angels fear to tread." What?

Leah 04:57


Meliza Manalo 04:58


Katrina 04:58

Tread. Quite brilliant at integrating...

Meliza Manalo 05:02


Katrina 05:03

"... new projects, you are terrible at following them through to completion. You are an enthusiastic leader, but you tend to be a reluctant follower. Often you are quick to anger, but you usually recover just as fast, regretting later things you said when you were upset. One of your best traits is that you are simple and direct, blunt, and honest. Just be careful you do not hurt others' feelings. Your need to be competitive at all costs may provoke resistance from others, but as long as you maintain your usual Sunny good humor, this should not prove to be a major problem for you."

Meliza Manalo 05:48

That's a lot.

Katrina 05:50

So, nothing like listed. But I definitely think I'm pretty energetic and...

Bailey 05:55

Oh my god. Yes.

Meliza Manalo 05:57

You're freaking energetic.

Bailey 05:58

There's a reason why we call you the Energizer Bunny, girl. Like, you never turn off.

Leah 06:05

I've never met someone who is as energized as Casey.

Bailey 06:08

Except for when she like passes out. Because when you... I mean we have like photographic evidence. Like, we can make a photo album about this like...

Leah 06:15

Like a switch.

Bailey 06:16


Meliza Manalo 06:16

Yeah. Once you're down, you're down.

Bailey 06:19


Leah 06:22

But we don't even see it coming. It just like...

Katrina 06:24

You know why I think I have like really ugly photos of me sleeping, is because I tried to fight it so bad, but I want to stay awake. So that when I actually fall asleep, I'm like, half awake, half asleep. You know what I mean?

Leah 06:37

And she even sleeps with their eyes open.

Meliza Manalo 06:40

Yeah, that's creepy.

Bailey 06:41

Hahaha. That's awesome.

Katrina 06:44

I think I've definitely gotten better of relaxing and actually letting myself sleep when I need to sleep. You know?

Meliza Manalo 06:50

That's good.

Katrina 06:51


Bailey 06:51

Okay. You know what one thing I don't agree with this is when it says you're quick to anger.

Leah 06:56

I was gonna bring that one up too.

Bailey 06:57

Yeah. I don't think that's you.

Meliza Manalo 06:58

I agree though.

Bailey 07:00

I've never seen her angry.

Meliza Manalo 07:10

That Casey is quick to anger but then she quickly like... it goes away.

Katrina 07:13

That's what I was just about to say. I feel like I'm very quick to anger. Going quick to anger.

Meliza Manalo 07:15


Bailey 07:15


Katrina 07:15

I think I'm very quick to anger. But I feel like internally, I just kind of hold it in on myself so that I show it to others when I'm upset, because then I'm really upset. But then like it said, I'm very quick to return back to my, you know.

Meliza Manalo 07:27


Leah 07:27

That's true.

Meliza Manalo 07:28

Yeah. I think I agree with it. I don't know about the competitiveness. Oh, no.

Katrina 07:33

I'm pretty competitive when it comes to sports and stuff.

Meliza Manalo 07:36

Yeah. Certain things.

Katrina 07:37

To winning. But not like, needing to always win type thing.

Leah 07:41


Katrina 07:43

Ummm yeah.

Leah 07:44

You're still a good sport.

Katrina 07:46

I'm pretty blunt and direct. Yeah, sometimes. And I'm like, dang, why did I just say that? It's so mean. (Laughter) That's the thing about Aries too. Aries don't think before they frickin speak and I'm trying to do so much better on that. Because I'm just like, you know, if it's already out, it's already out. It's too late to retrack back.

Leah 08:07

We can see that.

Bailey 08:08

There's no rescinding here.

Leah 08:10

It also doesn't help that everyone around us is pretty much like that too.

Meliza Manalo 08:14


Leah 08:15

Like family.

Meliza Manalo 08:16

Yeah. They're all pretty blunt. My mom, my God, most blunt person I've ever met. Ever met whenever.

Leah 08:23

I can be sometimes. I know there's definitely been a lot of times where I've just said something and I'm thinking about and I'm like, oh, I probably shouldn't have said that.

Meliza Manalo 08:33

Yeah. I feel like that has happened a lot when we were living together too. Not just you. But everybody.

Leah 08:38

Yeah. Yeah.

Meliza Manalo 08:38

That's why we don't do well living together. I think though, the task one is pretty funny. Of not completing.

Bailey 08:46

Not following through. (Laughter)

Katrina 08:48

When I clean my room, I'll start frickin cleaning every little corner first, and then it'll eventually get finished. You know what I mean.

Bailey 08:57

Every square inch. And about three weeks later...

Meliza Manalo 09:00

I'm just like this is why I can never finish in the time that I need to finish. Because I keep picking up things that I don't need to be touching first, you know?

Bailey 09:08

I hate how you fall down those rabbit holes where you find childhood stuff or something.

Katrina 09:13


Bailey 09:14

And you're like, Oh, my God.

Leah 09:15

Oh, that's the worst.

Meliza Manalo 09:16

Oh, my goodness.

Bailey 09:17

It gives you all the fuzzy feels.

Meliza Manalo 09:18

I don't do that.

Leah 09:20

I do that all the time. Way too often.

Meliza Manalo 09:22

Brandon does that. That's why it takes forever when we move.

Leah 09:26

I think for me, it was Brandon's fault. Because he showed me what a Memory Box was. And so, then I made a Memory Box.

Meliza Manalo 09:35


Leah 09:36

And now that kind of stuff always happens to me.

Meliza Manalo 09:39

But for Brandon, it's memory boxes.

Leah 09:42


Meliza Manalo 09:43

More than one.

Bailey 09:43


Leah 09:45

Yeah, I've one that's designated as Memory Box, but I technically have multiple.

Bailey 09:52

I have one too. Mine is pretty full. And then I have a huge Tupperware full of old sh*t.

Meliza Manalo 10:02

I don't think I have a memory... Oh, no, that's not true. That whole drawer. It's basically memory box. Anyways...

Leah 10:09

Everyone has one.

Meliza Manalo 10:10

Yeah. Anyways

Katrina 10:11

So yeah, I guess that's...

Meliza Manalo 10:12

That's your sun.

Katrina 10:13

I think it's pretty accurate when I read things on social media about Aries. I'm like, okay. Like 90% of the time, it's pretty accurate.

Bailey 10:20

And plus, it's a fire sign. And you're definitely fiery. Very, very on.

Meliza Manalo 10:28

Oh. So, what's the sun? What are those? Fire?

Katrina 10:32

It's your earth sign it's like your air, water...

Bailey 10:35

Like Avatar.

Katrina 10:35

Yeah, exactly.

Leah 10:36

Wait where are you seeing that?

Katrina 10:38

Um it...

Bailey 10:40

Air, Earth.

Katrina 10:42


Bailey 10:42


Leah 10:44

Wait, how do you know what your... how do you know which sign it is?

Bailey 10:47

I used to have this thing on...

Katrina 10:48

Oh, I just always knew.

Bailey 10:48

I used to have this thing on Pinterest or something that broke it down. Google it, Mia.

Meliza Manalo 10:54

Does it not say on here?

Bailey 10:56

No, I don't think it is.

Leah 10:57

I think mine is air. I think I did see that. Because I really wanted it to be water but it's not.

Katrina 11:01

Or I'll just tell. I found it.

Meliza Manalo 11:03

Okay. I was like the keyboard's too far.

Katrina 11:06

Um, Gemini is an air. And Capricorn is an earth. Cold and dry. (Laughter)

Leah 11:16

I didn't say it like that.

Katrina 11:16

Gemini is hot and wet. Aries is hot and dry. And a Leo is hot and dry.

Meliza Manalo 11:27

Okay. I agree with that. (Laughter)

Leah 11:33

I don't know what that means when it says hot and wet?

Katrina 11:36

I don't know what that means either.

Meliza Manalo 11:36

Yeah, that sounds dirty.

Bailey 11:38


Katrina 11:40

So, you're an airbender.

Meliza Manalo 11:42

Alright. Louie, do you want to read your sun?

Leah 11:45

Sure. Okay. Obviously, I am a Gemini. I was born in June.

Meliza Manalo 11:50


Leah 11:51

So, it says... Fear me I'm a Gemini. "You have a quick, bright and agile mind, but an extremely short attention span. You love the external, kaleidoscopic aspects of life, but you tend to avoid (and even fear) deep, close emotional involvements. As such, you seem to enjoy travel and sightseeing and generally being "on-the-go." You get quite listless when things around you become static and dull, but your excitement returns whenever you are stimulated by a new idea. Chatty, inquisitive, and quite playful, you enjoy practical jokes and games in general. Your moods change quickly and often. You are very restless and constantly in motion. You are known for your versatility and adaptability. Your vivaciousness enlivens any social gathering."

Bailey 12:35

I actually legit agree with all of that.

Meliza Manalo 12:37

Yeah, seriously.

Katrina 12:38

That's why I juggled the whole time.

Meliza Manalo 12:39

The whole time, I was just like nodding.

Leah 12:42

The only thing I don't agree with is the very last sentence which was 'Your vivaciousness enlivens any social gathering.'

Katrina 12:49


Leah 12:49

Cuz I'm never like the center...

Meliza Manalo 12:50

I mean when you're drunk.

Leah 12:52

I guess. (Laughter) I just feel like I'm an annoying drunk.

Bailey 12:58

Oh my God. When you come home next, we should all get f*cking just plastered. (Laughter) And then record an episode.

Meliza Manalo 13:05

Oh my god.

Katrina 13:07

I'll bring my camera.

Leah 13:07

One time with you.

Bailey 13:08

For evidential purpose.

Meliza Manalo 13:09

And my camera!

Leah 13:10

And a glove for Casey.

Bailey 13:11


Leah 13:12

Yes. That would be a great time.

Bailey 13:15

We're doing it. Ummm.

Leah 13:17

I'm down. Yeah, I feel like this really does. This really is me. I have a hard time believing in zodiacs just because, you know, science. But at the same time, I really love this kind of stuff. Because it's very interesting.

Meliza Manalo 13:34


Leah 13:34

And I also love the idea of magic. And I feel like this kind of stuff falls into...

Katrina 13:39

I love astrology.

Meliza Manalo 13:41

Well, apparently there's science into it. Because it has to deal with your location.

Bailey 13:46

The stars.

Leah 13:46


Katrina 13:46

The stars.

Meliza Manalo 13:47

The gravitational pull.

Leah 13:48

There's also a lot of science again, with it.

Katrina 13:51

What's that? Something's moving. Is that you Louie?

Meliza Manalo 13:55

That's probably Louie.

Bailey 13:56

It's Bob.

Leah 13:57

There's a plane over.

Bailey 13:59

Oh. Damn.

Leah 14:01

I know. I'm sorry. It happens a lot here.

Meliza Manalo 14:03

But yeah, I agree with everything that said.

Leah 14:07

Yeah. And it kind of goes with my, you know, The MBTI thing. INTJ. Especially where it says, 'You tend to avoid and even fear deep, close emotional involvement.' (Laughter)

Meliza Manalo 14:22

I know. I was like, yup.

Leah 14:24

Probably why I never really dated. And I've really only had like, two boyfriends in my life.

Bailey 14:30

Awww. How sweet.

Meliza Manalo 14:32


Leah 14:33

But yeah. That is my sun.

Bailey 14:35

What? What is Gemini? Is that an earth sign?

Meliza Manalo 14:38


Leah 14:39


Bailey 14:39

Oh, Air.

Meliza Manalo 14:40


Bailey 14:41

You got that...

Leah 14:42

Two thing...

Bailey 14:42

You got that split personality?

Leah 14:43

The two...Yes. Yeah.

Katrina 14:44

That's right.

Bailey 14:44

Yeah, like the twins.

Leah 14:46

It's a real thing.

Bailey 14:47

It's two people in one body.

Meliza Manalo 14:49

That's weird.

Leah 14:49

It's a very real thing.

Bailey 14:52

Very real. Haha.

Leah 14:52

A lot of like... every time I tell someone who knows a lot about zodiacs...

Meliza Manalo 14:57


Leah 14:57

Yeah, like astrology. Every time I say I'm a Gemini, they're like, ohh. And I work with two other Geminis at work. It's so funny.

Bailey 15:06

Because y'all are similar?

Leah 15:08

Yeah, very similar but also very different. But we all know that we have this split personality thing going on. (Laughter)

Bailey 15:14

Yeah, but that's understandable.

Leah 15:16

It's always like, "I know how you really feel."

Bailey 15:18


Meliza Manalo 15:19

That's why this is kind of hard for... I mean, I guess we have the different the rising and stuff, because my whole family are Capricorn, but I don't... we're kind of different from each other.

Leah 15:30


Meliza Manalo 15:31

So, I don't know.

Leah 15:32

That's true.

Meliza Manalo 15:33

Because I'll read the... I'll read mine. And then I don't know if Mikie fits into this book. Okay. So, mine is Capricorn. I'm "Extremely serious and mature, you are capable of accepting responsibilities and do so willingly. Others expect you to be dutiful as a matter of.... what? As a matter of course. You tend to get angry when people get rewards after not having worked anywhere near as hard as you. You are goal-oriented and an achiever by nature -- you're a hard worker and are justifiably proud of the tangible results of your efforts. You tend to have "tunnel-vision". This allows you to block out extraneous matters that might distract others and to concentrate totally on the matter at hand. As such, you are the ideal one to manage or administrate any ongoing project and to be practical and efficient at it. You are not a fast worker, but you are quite thorough. You are known for being totally persistent, tenacious and tireless in reaching your goals." So, for me...

Leah 16:38


Meliza Manalo 16:38

... I do agree with that. But for Mikie, I don't know. (Laughter)

Leah 16:46

But he could be...

Bailey 16:47

And for clarification, Mikie is Meliza's bro now. Yeah. Brother.

Meliza Manalo 16:50

Yeah. Brother.

Leah 16:51

But his rising. It could probably be because what you're seeing is his rising.

Meliza Manalo 16:57

Exactly. Hmmm.

Bailey 16:58


Leah 16:59

Maybe. I don't know. I'm just throwing that out there.

Meliza Manalo 17:02

Okay, I'm gonna ask him to take this.

Katrina 17:06

It's not a test though, is it?

Leah 17:07

But yeah.

Meliza Manalo 17:07

Well, I'm... Oh, yeah not taking. But like, putting his...tudududu. You know.

Leah 17:10

His input.

Bailey 17:12

Tadada. (Laughter) Do some data entry.

Meliza Manalo 17:16


Leah 17:18

But I like how so far, all of ours have been pretty different, but still really go with each other.

Katrina 17:28


Leah 17:28

Like when I think of Casey's and Bailey's, I wouldn't go, or I wouldn't connect with a lot of what your guys' said. Mia's some of it maybe. I think just because we have very different personalities anyway.

Meliza Manalo 17:42

Mm hmm.

Leah 17:42

But it's still very different from mine. You know what I'm saying? You know what I'm trying to say?

Bailey 17:49

Well, Gemini, you're truly in a league of your own. You know what I'm saying? Okay, so the...

Leah 17:55

Thank you.

Bailey 17:55

... the sentence... De nada. The sentence where it says, 'You tend to get angry when people get rewards after not having worked anywhere near as hard as you.' Yes.

Leah 18:06

That's so on point.

Bailey 18:07

That is so on point.

Meliza Manalo 18:09

Isn't that obvious?

Bailey 18:10

I guess, though.

Meliza Manalo 18:11

You guys all laughed when I said that. It's very much true.

Bailey 18:16

Especially like your previous. I felt like when you were in college a lot too, when you're doing group projects and stuff.
