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: https://alabe.com/
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.
Continuation from Part 1...
Meliza Manalo 28:31
I agree except for...
Especially about the learning thing.
Meliza Manalo 28:34
... the optimistic part. (Laughter)
Yeah, yeah. I agree with you on that one, Mia. (Laughter)
Meliza Manalo 28:42
I was like, Oh? Hold on.
So, Leah. Do you think this accurately reflects your emotional self?
Meliza Manalo 28:48
Yeah, your internal self?
I think it really does. Because I do. I feel like I do feel this way a lot. Like a lot of these things. But I don't necessarily always put it out there. I don't know how much you guys agree with this when you see me? Ummm.
Well, it's kind of hard because this is almost...
... like the side of you that you keep behind closed doors.
Meliza Manalo 29:09
Yeah. And that's exactly.... Yeah, that's exactly what this feels like, too. Because a lot of this stuff I feel like I don't really talk about to other people.
Exactly. That's why I agree with that on my end too, you know, with my feelings being so extreme from one end to the other. It's like you guys will never know because that's internally my thing.
Meliza Manalo 29:26
That's not your rising.
I don't know that's not your sun. Oh.
Meliza Manalo 29:32
Like, I thought rising is what how people see you as.
How they perceive you.
Meliza Manalo 29:37
Okay. And then your sun is your core. Like who you...
Who you really are. Who the fuck you is. (Laughter)
I feel like this does kind of match my...
Meliza Manalo 29:49
... core, the sun, you know. Like my sun and moon are very similar. Like it even brought up the traveling thing again. Which I really really....
You do love to travel.
Meliza Manalo 29:57
I love traveling and I really end up... what I love about it is seeing how other people and cultures work. Whether it's within the United States. Because you know, every state is different.
Meliza Manalo 30:08
And I just love learning about the different people in the States. Or like... And I do eventually want to go out of the country more. But yeah. So, I liked that. That they really go hand in hand here for me.
Meliza Manalo 30:27
I had to pull up my pants. And they were just watching. (Laughter)
I didn't see you guys.
Well, at first, I was like, what is she doing? (Laughter)
Meliza Manalo 30:38
She's trying to be as quiet as possible.
You were very quiet.
Meliza Manalo 30:42
Yeah, that was pretty good.
I couldn't hear anything. It was just silence.
I'm mysterious, remember? (Laughter) I know I'm that.
Meliza Manalo 30:51
That was pretty good, Casey.
And I can't see you guys on the video right now either.
Oh, you can't?
No. It's paused.
It says it's paused? Oh.
Oh, means you got your thing up.
Meliza Manalo 30:59
Meliza Manalo 31:01
This whole time.
This whole time. I thought you can see me.
Hey, girl. You look so cute.
I don't think so.
I love your hair.
I did... Oh, really? I legitimately woke up like this. (Laughter)
And she's like, "I woke up like this."
"I woke up like this."
I really did. Thank you. Okay. Mia's turn?
(Popping bone sound) Ouch. Did y'all hear that?
Meliza Manalo 31:21
What was that?
What was that?
Meliza Manalo 31:23
Don't get old you guys.
That was your knee?
I thought you were slapping your leg or something. (Laughter)
Yup. That was my knee. I'm old as hell. Okay, Mia is older than me.
Meliza Manalo 31:36
By a few months. (Laughter)
Just gotta throw that in there, huh?
Oh my Gosh. All right Mia's turn.
Meliza Manalo 31:46
Okay. My moon. So, my moon is a Leo.
Sun sign. No. Oh, sh*t. Fire sign.
Meliza Manalo 31:52
Meliza Manalo 31:53
Meliza Manalo 31:53
So, what's a Capricorn? Earth? Earth and fire?
Capricorn is Earth.
Meliza Manalo 31:58
So, you've got Earth and fire. So, you can literally set fire to yourself.
That makes sense.
Meliza Manalo 32:04
I feel like that makes sense from an element's perspective. Because my external being, I'm very calm and collective. But my internal is just like on fire constantly.
Meliza Manalo 32:17
Yeah. So, I get that.
Guns are blazing you could say.
Meliza Manalo 32:20
Okay, so it says, "You always want to be proud of yourself. And will never do anything that will make yourself look bad." Yeah. (Laughter)
Meliza Manalo 32:32
"You need the respect and admiration of others. And enjoy attracting attention to yourself. Everything you do tends to be self-emphasized and self-exaggerated. Very stubborn, willful, and independent yourself. Be sure to allow others who are close to you. The similar right to be themselves. Your need for love, affection and reassurance and your tendency toward vanity, allow you to have your head easily turned by flattery. The more insecure you are, the more you tend to be a showoff. You love games and sports. As a matter of fact, you would usually rather play than work. Be careful of a tendency to be snobbish and uppity. It does not become you." So, I mean, maybe I am snobbish, and I just don't know. I don't know. Well, I need scores.
I can see that.
I'm gonna do a total 'Mean girls' moment. Raise your hand if you have personally felt...
... that Meliza Manalo has been snobbish and uppity.
Meliza Manalo 33:30
Oh, my goodness. (Laughter)
Leah, did you raise your hand?
I raised my hand. (Laughter)
But this is your emotions one. Emotions, you know.
But I also feel like yours is only half right too. If even that.
Meliza Manalo 33:48
Yeah, I don't like being center of attention. I mean...
Yeah. That's where I shook my head. I was like, mmmm, that's just not true.
Yeah, the vanity thing was weird.
Yeah. The vanity thing, no.
Meliza Manalo 33:57
Yeah. So, that's why I do agree with some of it. And some of it, I don't.
Meliza Manalo 34:03
Like that snobbish personality, I feel like that's the A in my MBTI, you know?
What does the A stand for?
Meliza Manalo 34:10
It's like, basically conf... Yeah, it's confidence. Like being more confident.
Meliza Manalo 34:14
Like I am very confident in my abilities to do, you know, stuff.
Get it, girl. Oh, yeah.
Mine is the opposite. I'm a T.
Meliza Manalo 34:22
So, I lack confidence. Basically, I hate myself. (Laughter) Just kidding.
Getting dark. It's still 10 o'clock y'all. Is it 10:00?
It's one o'clock for me.
Meliza Manalo 34:37
Like, I just don't. I don't agree with just the attention to yourself. Like I'm not attention seeking. I'm not like outlandish. I mean, my hair is blue. But this is recent quarantine here.
Meliza Manalo 34:48
I didn't do this.
And that's fairly out of character for you. I feel like.
Meliza Manalo 34:52
Everything you do tends to be self-emphasized and self-exaggerated. Umm. What does that mean?
Meliza Manalo 34:58
What does that mean? Self-emphasized and self-exaggerated?
Like self-centered, I think. I don't get that part at all.
No, I don't. Yeah. I don't either. You're too much of an introvert to be that way.
Meliza Manalo 35:09
Yeah. So, that's why I like... I kind of agree and I kind of don't agree with my moon.
I definitely agree with the 'proud of yourself' thing.
Meliza Manalo 35:18
Yeah. I definitely have a lot of pride.
And you'll never do anything to make yourself look bad. Huh?
Meliza Manalo 35:22
I have a lot of pride.
Yeah, you do.
Meliza Manalo 35:24
I need to like, you know, calm it down a bit.
I disagree girl. If anything, amp it up.
I think you have a good amount.
Meliza Manalo 35:32
Apparently though, snobbish, and uppity.
I wouldn't say amp it up.
Go harder. (Laughter) Go harder on that.
I'll say you're at a good level.
Meliza Manalo 35:41
A healthy level.
Meliza Manalo 35:43
Don't add more to it. (Laughter) That's what you're saying. But...
And that's a fire sign.
Meliza Manalo 35:50
Fire. So, we got Air, Earth, and Fire.
Meliza Manalo 35:51
Fire is very like...swooosh (Making an airy sound)
Meliza Manalo 35:53
It's a fire sign.
Meliza Manalo 35:56
Very strong personality.
Leah, what was your moon again?
My moon is Sagittarius.
Oh, that's right. That's right. Fire.
Yeah. We got fire in us.
Meliza Manalo 36:05
Yeah. Our internal being is fire. Oh, no. Not yours though.
Meliza Manalo 36:09
I'm a core. So, her core is fire. Yeah.
My loins are burning. (Laughter) Maybe that's why we are so...
Meliza Manalo 36:21
... Mm hmm. It's cuz we all have that common fiery. Oh my god, you know, it'd be so fun you guys...
Fiery. On it. Huh?
... Is if we all the four of us went to Apple hill or something. Or like the four of us did anything together.
Meliza Manalo 36:34
I know. (Laughter)
Meliza Manalo 36:37
Someone's on the other side of the country. So, we're on to our rising.
Let's get it.
Okay, so my rising. So, how the world perceives me. And you tell me. Because you are my world. Umm is Taurus, which is an earth sign.
Meliza Manalo 36:56
And the number one thing about Tauruses is that they're stubborn as f*ck.
Meliza Manalo 37:01
It's like all three of yours.
Yeah, like literally all three I have listed that. So, it must be true. Um, okay. So, also persistent, which I totally agree with. Because I will stop at nothing to get my way. (Laughter) Umm outwardly self-assured. I agree with that.
Yeah, I can see that.
Okay, this is really adorable. Exudes warmth, friendliness, and charm.
Meliza Manalo 37:29
Awww. That's very pretty.
Awww yes. Yeah.
When you're not yelling at people.
Hahaha. You got me there. Oh, demands comfortable surroundings.
Meliza Manalo 37:44
I totally agree that if I am not cozy, especially when it's cold out, I'm done.
Your house is so cozy too.
Meliza Manalo 37:52
Yeah. Your house is very homey.
Ummm appreciative of the "good" life. Good is in quotes. I don't really....
Meliza Manalo 38:01
What does that mean?
I don't know.
Living the good life. You know, like you're living life...
Maybe you're just positive. You're just... I don't know.
I don't know the antidepressants and the mood stabilizers. You know, they really help with that. (Laughter) Matter of fact.
Meliza Manalo 38:22
Matter of a fact.
What does that mean?
Meliza Manalo 38:25
Yeah, what that means?
No. Bullsh*t. Just what you want to do.
Meliza Manalo 38:28
Oh, Okay. Yeah.
Don't beat around the bush.
Meliza Manalo 38:31
Yeah, that's definitely you.
Except when you do be around the bush. (Laughter) That's gross. And then as I said... (Mic drops)Oh, shit.
The Mic thing dropped.
Oh, my God.
Meliza Manalo 38:45
Did you hear anything?
Meliza Manalo 38:47
No, I didn't.
Meliza Manalo 38:47
All I heard was, "Oh, shit."
Oh, shit. Oh, shit. And then the last thing I wrote down for my rising is a steadfast approach to life.
Which I really liked that because...
I can agree with pretty much all those things.
Meliza Manalo 39:05
Is that your rising?
Is that what you guys thought of me when you first met me?
I don't know.
Meliza Manalo 39:09
We first met in high school.
Yeah, I think so.
Meliza Manalo 39:16
I think that's why I became, or I wanted you to be my friend. Cuz you're very homey.
Yeah, you're very welcoming. Like, upon first meeting you, you're very like...
I know. Yeah, it was easy...
... to meet you and become friends with you.
Meliza Manalo 39:32
I love you guys so much.
Meliza Manalo 39:34
You're very raw too. Like, you're not matter of fact?
I can't think of a time where we were not close.
I know. I felt like I met both of you guys. Mia, not so much. No, we had talked about this.
Meliza Manalo 39:49
Yeah, we did.
About how we did not really like each other when we first met each other.
Meliza Manalo 39:52
It took a minute to warm up.
Meliza Manalo 39:54
I could see that. I could totally see that.
Maybe because we both wanted to take control of our group project.
Meliza Manalo 40:01
Yeah. And I think...
Mia was like, "This time ain't giving up." (Laughter)
Meliza Manalo 40:09
Then Bailey realized real fast that she actually didn't want to do any work. (Laughter)
I think it's because you're both very confident people but in different ways.
Meliza Manalo 40:20
Oh, okay. I have a fun idea. So, why don't we like... So, Casey will go next. So, me, Mia, and Leah. Let's say what we thought at...well it's hard for you guys because you guys are family who've known each other since a kid.
No, I really do agree. Do that. Because...
Meliza Manalo 40:37
Like figuring out what you...
... the rising is interesting.
Yeah. So, like...
Meliza Manalo 40:40
But I don't know anything the about Zodiacs. So, I wouldn't be able to guess.
Like we'll say what we thought about you. Like our first impression.
Like a characteristic.
Meliza Manalo 40:46
Oh, when we first met you?
And see if it matches up with your rising.
We were young when we first met though.
Meliza Manalo 40:53
Yeah. I didn't really become friends with you until way later.
Okay, so my first impression of Casey, of you Casey...
Is a bitch. I know I get that a lot. No. (Laughter)
Oh, my God.
I got an RBF.
Meliza Manalo 41:07
No, I get that a lot.
Yeah, for sure.
Oh, my God.
Quite the opposite of that.
Put a water bottle on that thing. You got some tape? This is an arts and crafts room. I hope you have a tape. (Laughter)
Meliza Manalo 41:22
All my crafts are over there.
I don't have a first impression for Casey, but I do have one for Mia.
My first impression of you was just like, super bubbly. And just super sweet. And like, very down to earth.
That's how I imagined other people's first impressions for Casey would be.
Meliza Manalo 41:41
That's literally what people say about Casey.
Just like super enthusiastic.
Meliza Manalo 41:46
Always down to party. Always here for a good time. Okay, so what is your rising Casey?
So, Surprise, surprise! I'm a Taurus.
Aaaah! (Laughter) Oh!
So, how much do you guys think of what Bailey said reflects on me?
Meliza Manalo 42:04
Well read it. I don't remember. (Laughter)
It's the same exact thing is Bailey?
Yeah, I'm a Taurus. Rising.
Oh. I can see that. That's why me and Mia are always like you and Bailey are. Always very similar. You two are very similar to each other. And me and Mia are very similar to each other.
And we're fire sign.
We're core. So, we're Earth. Well. So, I'm Earth fire and...
Which one are you?
Sagittarius? No, your fire or your moon is Sagittarius, right? Or is that Leah?
Meliza Manalo 42:36
That's Leah. I'm a Scorpio.
So, what this one says is, "Rising for a Taurus is calm and deliberate. You hate to move quickly or act hastily. Very practical. Every effort must count, or you can't be bothered. Patient, persistent and steady but very stubborn. You can't be pushed or pressured into anything. You seemed outwardly self-assured because you tend to repress your inner tension and turmoil?"
Meliza Manalo 43:08
What's a turmoil?
Meliza Manalo 43:10
Turmoil. Like sadness.
Meliza Manalo 43:14
Yeah, your inner feeling.
You feel literally sad. Yeah. And that's funny because it said that for your moon, right? When you're kind of like things inside.
Meliza Manalo 43:23
Yeah. You said that too. No, you don't. Yeah. That makes sense.
"You exude an earthy warmth, friendliness and charm. You demand comfortable surroundings and appreciate the good life. Be careful of a tendency to be overly self-indulgent. Indulgent? Indulged. At times, you are lazy and difficult to motivate. Overcoming inerta." Inerta? is a problem for you.
Meliza Manalo 43:55
Ummm, something about physics. (Laughter)
Meliza Manalo 44:03
I know what it means. I don't know how to explain it.
Yeah, I don't how to explain it either.
All right. Well, "...is a problem for you and because you are not by nature a self-starter, it is often necessary for you to receive Stimuli?
Meliza Manalo 44:15
"... stimuli from others in order to get moving." Which I don't really agree with. I'm pretty self-motivated.
Yeah. You're not lazy or stubborn really.
Meliza Manalo 44:25
Well, yeah. That's what it says.
You're a self-starter.
Meliza Manalo 44:27
Like others don't motivate you. You motivate yourself.
Team no days off.
I don't see you as lazy or stubborn either really.
Meliza Manalo 44:34
Yeah, you're not really lazy.
You're the opposite of lazy. If anybody is lazy here it's me. I couldn't get past day 9 of the f*cking Yoga challenge.
Meliza Manalo 44:42
And she is like on a million challenges.
First step for this month, definitely. Not following through.
Meliza Manalo 44:53
But the other stuff like how you and Bailey are very loving.
Homey and loving.
Definitely you guys.
Meliza Manalo 44:59
Meliza Manalo 45:01
People gravitate towards you guys. You can see that. It's very opposite.
Very opposite of me. (Laughter)
Meliza Manalo 45:11
I'm not very inviting.
Opposites attract y'all.
What is yours? You're an Earth?
Meliza Manalo 45:16
Earth and fire.
And I feel like I'm a mixture of you two and Mia. Like I'm somewhere in between but a little bit closer to Mia.
Your two sides.
Leah, when I first met you, Umm... I thought you were super.... I mean, I still think this. Very intelligent...
Oh, thank you.
And just... like the way you present yourself is very impressive.
And I just thought you were super cute. And um, I don't know. I just was really drawn to you.
Thank you so much. Awesome. Thank you. Oh, Bailey.
Okay, what was your first impression of Leah?
Meliza Manalo 46:02
Of Leah? Well...
She was really young.
Meliza Manalo 46:06
I was pretty young.
...to meet her.
Meliza Manalo 46:08
I guess I should probably... well when we moved in... I know I've said it like a million times. Um, when we moved in, when I moved in with you guys, I think my first impression was like, this girl's a nerd. She doesn't care about fashion whatsoever. Which is opposite of what you are now. Now you're a little fashionista.
It's still in there, though. It's still in there.
Meliza Manalo 46:34
My girl lives on.
Meliza Manalo 46:36
But you're just really quiet. So, I didn't really get to know you. And like the first time we hung out we literally sat on your bed quiet, just listening to music. So, we didn't even really talk to each other.
Meliza Manalo 46:48
I mean, I think we talked a little bit. Because mostly we were listening to, She & him. Because my ears like, you know, perked up. Like, ooh. This song sounds good.
We did bond over She & Him. That's for sure.
Meliza Manalo 47:01
That's funny. I like how... I always get different things when people tell me what their first impressions of me are. Like, you and Bailey had completely different things.
Meliza Manalo 47:12
Yeah. But Bailey also met you later. You were still in high school. You were still finding yourself.
True. Yeah, I guess.
The glory days.
Very true. I'm a widely different person than I was.
Yes, you are.
Meliza Manalo 47:29
Definitely. Most definitely.
Yes. I agree.
Meliza Manalo 47:33
Feels like you probably changed the most.
Yeah. I thought the same. I think I win the award for most. I wouldn't. I don't know. I don't know if I'd say most improved...
Hahaha. I would say improved.
But definitely most changed.
Meliza Manalo 47:46
I hope it's an improvement.
Meliza Manalo 47:50
Yeah. You're not private anymore.
It's funny that you said that. (Laughter) Yeah. Anyway. But it's funny that you say the fashion thing though. Because literally last night, I was just putting clothes on to wear in the house. And I was like, man. And I was like looking at my wardrobe and stuff. And all these old clothes that I've had for years. And I'm like, why am I so bad at dressing myself.
I'm only a fashionista now because Fabian dresses me most of the time.
Meliza Manalo 48:25
And your mom sends you clothes.
Yeah, my mom gives me clothes. But I'm thinking about saying no to some of her clothes.
Meliza Manalo 48:31
Sometimes I say no.
Okay, Leah. What is your rising?
Oh, yeah. I got to read this, huh?
Meliza Manalo 48:36
Lay on us.
Okay, rising is Capricorn.
Which is an earth sign.
Oooh, that's why you bond with Mia.
Meliza Manalo 48:43
That makes sense.
Okay, so Leah. Are you Air, Fire and Earth?
Air, fire? Yep.
I'm Water, Fire and Earth.
Not Water? Water is my favorite element.
We're the same Louie.
Yeah, both of us have Fire, Air and Earth.
Wow. That makes a lot of sense.
So, we have all of us in one. You're Fire... Earth and Water? I'm the missing element.
Yeah. You are.
Is Scorpio an Earth?
Yeah, Scorpio is Water.
We're just this one big puzzle piece.
Yes, we are.
Okay, what does it say for yours?
Okay. So, my thing says, "You are practical and reserved but very ambitious. An achiever and a hard worker, you respect success. Older looking and very serious as a youth. Things lighten up and you relax more as you mature. You have a serious view of the world as being a difficult place to be in. Very envious of those who seem to have an easier life than you have. Relaxation and play do not come easily. It is important that you had abundant parental support as a child. So that you do not feel lonely and isolated as an adult. Generally, you have a good earthy sense of humor that can carry you through when times really do get tough. You are purposeful, self-willed, industrious, realistic and responsible."
I could agree.
Yeah, I feel like 90% of this maybe?
I agree with that too.
Meliza Manalo 50:08
What's the 10%?
Yeah, what's the 10%?
10%, ummm. Well, I don't look older. That's for sure.
Meliza Manalo 50:16
Yeah. That's a weird thing. Because...
I think it means...
Meliza Manalo 50:21
You seem older.
I think it is like ummm... I take it as like the old soul thing.
Meliza Manalo 50:26
Which I get that a lot.
Yeah, I could see that.
Meliza Manalo 50:30
My dad even like... I talked to my dad a couple weeks ago. And we were on speaker phone with Fabian. And he really wanted to tell Fabian for some reason about how the moment I was born. As a kid, he's always thought that I was an old soul. He just looked at me and just felt like I was just this old person in a little tiny body.
Meliza Manalo 50:54
Like Benjamin Button.
Yeah. He said he always felt that way about me.
Meliza Manalo 51:01
And not really anyone else. Which...
Which is really sweet.
Yeah. I mean, I wasn't mad about it.
I know. Also, such a compliment, huh?
Yeah, it is. And I do get that a lot, which is really nice. So, it makes me feel good. Um, but the other thing, I don't feel like it was important for me to have abundant parental support as a child. Because I feel like as a child, I was incredibly independent. Like, I always wanted to be alone.
Meliza Manalo 51:31
I always wanted to just be by myself. And most of my memories as a child, were by myself. I don't really think of being with friends or family that much. It's like, me playing with my toys in the living room or just in my room or something like that.
Meliza Manalo 51:51
That could be your introvert side.
Yeah, like my really young memories. That's what I think of. Or that's the first thing that comes to thought. I think that's really it.
Continue to Part 3 to read the rest...
