S1E27 - Talking Zodiacs w/ the Bewitches (Part 3)
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 2...
Meliza Manalo 52:03
I agree, though. You seem like a... well, be somewhat the little I know about being a Capricorn, you seem like a Capricorn outwardly.
Yeah, that sounds good, right? I like it.
Indeed. And also, how all of this plays into your introvertedness versus extrovertedness too. Because that's such a big part of who you are as a person.
Yeah. For sure.
Very, very much is.
What's the first sentence of yours again, Leah?
'You're practical and reserved, but very ambitious.'
Yeah, I totally agree with that.
I know. I said, "Yeah" the first time I head.
Like we're all just nodding our heads.
Meliza Manalo 52:46
It's a perfect of you moving to Virginia.
Exactly. Talk about some ambition baby.
I just feel like I'm not ambitious enough. I need to be more ambitious.
Interesting. Because you make me look like a lazy a*shole. (Laughter) All the sh*t that you're accomplishing.
Dude, okay. Right now, my favorite song right now is, I don't know who it's by. But it's um, (singing the song) "I don't want to do sh*t. Except smoke we*d, s*x and watch TV." (Laughter) You've heard this?
I'm like, ah, finally. I'm 28 and almost 30. I found my anthem. (Laughter)
Oh, my God. You've peaked Bailey. You've peaked.
I mean, look at me. (Laughter) I could not be more accurate. Anyways. No, I agree with all that.
Meliza Manalo 53:45
Yeah, I agree.
Yeah, cuz I was like, this b*tch is smart as hell.
Meliza Manalo 53:52
Yeah. Would like to think that.
You have like multiple telescopes. And like, chart the planets and sh*t. That's some nerdy sh*t right there.
Meliza Manalo 53:59
I know. Because I remember. Like in high school, I was like, man, this girl's got a ton of books in her backpack. She's taking honors classes.
Oh my god. Your backpack was frickin school. Leah was... I was a big nerd. I really was.
It was like 80% backpack and 20% Leah.
Yeah. And Leah's so small. (Laughter) You chipper.
And it was yellow. It was bright neon yellow. Terrible. Terrible backpack.
Meliza Manalo 54:29
And then you switched over to Brandon's backpack. But it was so heavy. The strap broke and had to stitch it.
Then it broke again. (Laughter)
Meliza Manalo 54:41
Yeah, that's pretty accurate. I hated walking home with those frickin backpacks.
Meliza Manalo 54:50
It's so heavy.
Meliza Manalo 54:52
That's why it's so dumb that they took out all the lockers.
Well, you know drugs and shit.
Meliza Manalo 54:58
As if we really stuffed them.
Really, really ruined it for us nerds.
Meliza Manalo 55:02
Yeah. I kept my books in my gym locker. But that was only good for two years.
Yeah, that's true.
Um, okay. Yeah.
Anyways. Now it's your turn.
Meliza Manalo 55:13
So, what's your first impression of me?
Had to do this.
Um, I didn't really like you.
Meliza Manalo 55:23
I thought you were kind of mean, but I'm very sensitive of it.
Meliza Manalo 55:28
Everyone thinks that.
Okay, cool? (Laughter)
Um, but then as I got to know you, I was like, this is a real a*s b*tch. This is a boss a*s bitch.
Boss a*s b*ich.
Meliza Manalo 55:43
Like she got it going on. And I think honestly. Honestly, Mia, just the way he took charge on that economics project...
... really got me going.
It really did. I was just like, this girl is going places, you know? And by George, have you. (Laughter)
Meliza Manalo 56:02
Yeah, that was my first impression. I was like, this girl is mean as hell. But damn, she's smart. And she's gonna go far in life.
Meliza Manalo 56:12
I must be friend her so I can ride her coattails. (Laughter)
Meliza Manalo 56:17
Oh, my God.
Meliza Manalo 56:23
Well, if this podcast ever goes anywhere, I'll make sure to give you guys royalties for every time you are here, you know. Yes. (Laughter)
And don't forget my residuals.
Oh, my God. Let's see. I don't remember too much. Because I was pretty young when I first met Mia.
Meliza Manalo 56:42
Like the very, very, very first impression was just that she was really, really quiet and reserved. Which I guess I just assumed that you were a lot like Brandon.
Meliza Manalo 56:55
And so, I immediately thought like, oh, she seems like she'd be good for him.
Actually no. I totally agree with you, Leah. I thought that you and Brandon were super similar, Mia. Because you guys are both quiet. And anytime I saw you guys together at school, you're just quiet and looking at each other and smiling. In your own little world. That was super cute.
You should see what he is. And his sign.
Yeah. And then as... when you did move in, I was really drawn to you because I felt like we were similar. And I did think that you were super smart. Because I think you were in college at the time. And I remember like... I remember you... I had this distinct memory of you writing an essay. I think on pandas?
Meliza Manalo 57:45
My URSA major paper? Yes. (Laughter)
I remember like... I remember how into it you were.
Meliza Manalo 57:54
Yeah. The URSA day has something family. I don't remember now. Cuz I'm not in college and now I'm done. (Laughter)
But yeah, I was like, oh, man, she's so smart. I want to be like her.
Meliza Manalo 58:05
Meliza Manalo 58:07
No one ever said that.
And we also played Minecraft together. So, I was like, oh, and she's nerdy. But not nerdy like me where I look nerdy. But you're like the cool nerdy.
Meliza Manalo 58:20
I know. People get shocked. Like, shocked that I play video games. It's like, what are you expecting. Some sweaty, stinky, acne prone person living in the basement? Like what?
Ah, such a harmful stereotype.
Meliza Manalo 58:36
I know. I'm sorry I smell good. And take a shower. Yeah, people don't... like they don't think I'm a nerd, I guess.
Okay, so what's your rising?
Meliza Manalo 58:49
Meliza Manalo 58:52
\So, I'm a Capricorn, Sun. Moon, Leo and then Rising, Leo.
Which is quite interesting because you married a Leo.
Meliza Manalo 59:00
Yeah, I did marry a Leo.
MFEO, baby. MFEO.
Okay, so what does it say? Because it's interesting. Because it says something different for this than as your moon, huh?
Meliza Manalo 59:10
Yeah, it's a little different. Okay, so for the Leo. "You love to be the center of attention." No.
Meliza Manalo 59:18
"And you want to appear strong, confident dominant." Yeah.
Meliza Manalo 59:25
"You're very proud of yourself. Sometimes quite vain even. When all around you are bedraggled and falling apart, you look like a million bucks."
Meliza Manalo 59:34
That sounds so bad. But, okay.
I mean, you come up real clean. Like, you know?
Yeah, nice girl. Yeah.
Meliza Manalo 59:41
I come up real clean cuz I shower.
No, I mean, (Laughter) your style is very nice and edgy and elegant.
Meliza Manalo 59:48
Yeah? You think so? I'm gonna shop at a threft...threft...No, what am I saying? Thrift store. Yeah. "Very dignified and honorable. You enjoy the power and privilege but not the responsibilities that come with leadership. You're very idealistic but can also be quite stubborn. Others impress you only if they have integrity. But wealth, power and influence can also turn your head. You prefer rich, elegant surroundings and possessions and will try to acquire them as your budget allows. Physically you're very impressive at your best. You have a regal, charismatic demeanor, and baring. Try not to be such a showoff." So, I don't know.
Maybe like 25% of that is you.
Meliza Manalo 1:00:35
Yeah, like, the 'prefer the rich, elegant surroundings'. I mean, no. Clearly not. I'm using this old a*s dining table as my desk. That we've had since our first apartment. And not this bowing table.
Meliza Manalo 1:00:53
No. Like I said, I shop at thrift stores. Yeah,
One man's junk is another man's treasure. Right?
Meliza Manalo 1:01:01
Yeah. And center of attention, Obviously not.
Meliza Manalo 1:01:08
I don't know.
Maybe if you were highly extroverted, maybe that would be you.
Meliza Manalo 1:01:16
But this is what people perceive me as, right?
Meliza Manalo 1:01:20
So, maybe it's hard because you guys already know me.
The real you?
Meliza Manalo 1:01:25
I would have to ask someone.
I think maybe at work, people think you're an extrovert. Because they all come to you.
Meliza Manalo 1:01:30
Like hoity toity? I guess. I mean, I do drive a Lexus. (Laughter)
Oh, my God.
Meliza Manalo 1:01:37
But I mean, like, I don't know. If that's how people perceive me, I don't know if I like that. Because I don't like hoity toity people. And people are so like...
You're one of them, Mia.
Meliza Manalo 1:01:49
Oh, geez. And I don't try to be a showoff. But yeah.
Meliza Manalo 1:01:56
So, that's why I don't really agree with this. Because I don't... I mean I don't own expensive things.
I have a Lexus.
Meliza Manalo 1:02:03
I've had this same phone for years.
I know. I know it's a different situation.
Meliza Manalo 1:02:07
That's a weird situation how I acquired that car. Yeah, so that's my rising.
Fire, Fire, Earth.
Meliza Manalo 1:02:18
It's my outwardness and my innerness is fire. And then my whole is the earth. That sounds weird, right? Like, how can I be so like fire but then I'm cool as a cucumber.
Your planet is just burnt to a crisp. (Laughter)
Meliza Manalo 1:02:39
So, how does everyone feel about their Zodiac?
Um, I feel like Aries is pretty umm...
I think most of yours was pretty accurate, right?
Meliza Manalo 1:02:59
I like my sun a lot. Cuz it's very much me. That's like me to a T.
Right. That's your core.
Meliza Manalo 1:03:05
That's why if you see like... I don't know. I follow a Zodiac thing on Instagram that I just like to read out for others, you know?
Meliza Manalo 1:03:12
And I think it's pretty accurate. The core for sure. And then I think the moon is pretty accurate for the most part. Because...
Meliza Manalo 1:03:22
Yeah. My moon is pretty accurate.
... that's your internal. So, that's really of how you see it, you know? As for my rising I guess we all got to work on ourselves a little bit better for everyone, you know? (Laughter)
Meliza Manalo 1:03:39
I think I was just surprised, I guess.
At you results?
Meliza Manalo 1:03:44
Yeah, my results. Like obviously the sun, I agree with. But I was surprised getting the Leo. Just because Bailey and Brandon are Leos. And like, I don't...
You don't identify with either one of us.
Meliza Manalo 1:03:56
Yeah. So that's why I was like, surprised.
Yeah, I'm surprised by that too. It's like, overall, Leo.
Meliza Manalo 1:04:05
I know. It's weird.
Meliza Manalo 1:04:07
Like, I hope people don't actually perceive me as that.
Hahaha. They're like, actually, that is not a compliment.
Meliza Manalo 1:04:14
You know. I'm not this.
Thanks. No, I'm just playing.
Meliza Manalo 1:04:18
But maybe I should ask a co-worker or something.
Yeah, ask somebody who doesn't know you super well.
Like, be honest.
Meliza Manalo 1:04:26
Yeah, be honest.
Meliza Manalo 1:04:27
I want to know if my rising actually matches.
What did you honestly think it could be in the percent if any?
Oh, my God.
What about you, Leah?
Oh wait, Sorry. Go ahead Casey.
All right go ahead. What?
Yeah, Louie. What do you think?
Oh, about mine?
I think mine was mostly accurate. Now that I understand what the rising sign means.
I think it does. Yeah, I think mine came across as pretty accurate. And it kind of went with my... what's it called? The personality thing too. The MBTI.
Meliza Manalo 1:05:04
Meliza Manalo 1:05:06
Your NFGJ type?
Yeah. So, that gives me more confidence in it. Yeah.
Meliza Manalo 1:05:16
What are these other planets? Because we only went through the three. But there's like, this whole slew of planets.
I have no idea what the other planets mean. That's why I just stick to the three main ones.
Yeah, for sure.
Mercury. I don't know. Because there's 12 houses. And together they all make up your personality or something like that. Casey, what do you think? Do you agree with yours?
Mm hmm. I think yeah. I think the Aries is pretty...
Meliza Manalo 1:05:44
Yours is pretty accurate.
Yeah. Pretty accurate. Stubborn... that's why I was kind of estimate about that one. Because as a Taurus, I know Tauruses are very stubborn a.k.a. my ex. (Laughter) But I don't know. We have a lot of tauruses that are stubborn too.
Meliza Manalo 1:06:01
I don't think you're stubborn. You're pretty open minded. Like, willing to look or hear other people out. I think the most thing that I'm stubborn about is probably my anger. You know, like for myself internally, I'm very stubborn on myself and like, you know?
Yeah, I can see that.
All right, we did it. Yayyy.
Yayy. We've been talking about this for a while. So, I'm so happy that we finally just did it.
Meliza Manalo 1:06:27
Oh my God. I have to pee so bad. Hold on one second. I'm coming back.
Meliza Manalo 1:06:33
Meliza Manalo 1:06:33
You want me to leave that on?
Well, I'll read a fun little Zodiac thing for January babies. It's, "Very critical yet sensitive, super witty when they want to be, young at heart and old soul, immune to stupid remarks, hardworking and patient."
What is this? Is this from Instagram?
Yeah. It's of the Zodiac thing.
Meliza Manalo 1:06:54
Immune to stupid remarks? Yeah. For April babies, "Tackles everything head on, won't back down easily, generous and emotional, usually follow their heart over their head, loves to enjoy life." Yeah. (Laughter)
June babies, "Easily worried, powerful ability to sniff out bullshit, amazing at reading people, has a super lively presence, their mind is constantly racing." And for August babies, "Don't open up easily, can be straight up savage...
Hahaha. Yeah, I agree.
... highly motivated and ambitious, having a stubborn attitude, very intuitive and good at reading people.
Meliza Manalo 1:07:43
Yeah. I agree for both Brandon and Bailey. So, for the... what was it? The restrained part?
Meliza Manalo 1:07:51
For the August baby?
August baby? Ummm...
Meliza Manalo 1:07:55
Oh, 'Don't open up easily'. That's very much Brandon but not Bailey.
I'm an open book you can literally asked me anything.
Meliza Manalo 1:08:03
I just read over the fun facts. But I'll read yours again.
For June babies, "Easily worried...
That one I know, right? ... powerful ability to sniff out bullshit, amazing at reading people, having a super lively presence, their mind is constantly racing.
For sure that one.
Meliza Manalo 1:08:24
Yeah. It's pretty accurate.
The last one. I might just not stop.
So, I guess, you know, what would be a fun episode? Or what do you guys call these? Episodes, right?
Meliza Manalo 1:08:33
Yeah, episodes. For you and Fabian. And then... not necessarily them in it, but the compatibility.
I was just thinking about that.
Like how you and Fabian. And then you and Brandon.
Meliza Manalo 1:08:48
I would say it probably won't go on the path.
No, no, no. I know.
Meliza Manalo 1:08:50
Oh, Leah can talk about it.
But I mean, it's something that you guys could look into and then like talk about it. If you guys are actually compatible.
Meliza Manalo 1:08:55
I was going to actually talk about that cuz our... Brandon and Fabian's MBTI are pretty similar. I think they're only different by one thing.
but the funny thing is, everything says that I should not be with Fabian.
Meliza Manalo 1:09:10
Yeah, Brandon's not part of my compatibility.
Yeah, like it legitimately says that you should not be with this person. And then it'll list his...
Meliza Manalo 1:09:18
Really? That's funny.
what is he? A Pisces or an Aquarius? He's a Pisces, isn't he?
He's Pisces. Yeah. I know for the MBTI; it says that we don't... INTJs don't get along well with his. And I'm pretty sure with zodiacs too.
Meliza Manalo 1:09:37
We're not supposed to be compatible. Or at least he's not listed as someone who I would be compatible with. Very interesting.
Meliza Manalo 1:09:45
It is very interesting.
Is he pretty emotional?
Pisces are very emotional.
Yeah. He likes to say he's not. He's very emotional. He's probably more emotional than I am sometimes.
Cancers? Do you guys know any cancer babies? July?
Yes. I do.
Meliza Manalo 1:10:04
July. Oh, yeah. Marie.
They're very soft. They're soft.
Soft? I think cancers are very like... (making an airy sound)
I don't know any July's. Angela is July. Wait. First half of July or second half of July?
Meliza Manalo 1:10:20
So, the end of June and the beginning of July.
Meliza Manalo 1:10:23
Meliza Manalo 1:10:26
Thanks... for ...coming... on ... the episode.
That was fun, you guys.
I know. I loved it.
Thanks for having me.
Yeah. Thank you.
Thanks for continuing to invite me back. Because each time I do an episode, I'm just like, uhh. It just keeps getting worse. Damn it girl.
Meliza Manalo 1:10:44
You're a piece of the puzzle, Bailey.
Meliza Manalo 1:10:48
Our episodes crack me up when I edit it. Sometimes, it's hard.
Meliza Manalo 1:10:52
I'll just be in here by myself. And I'm just laughing, and Brandon is just out there wondering why I'm laughing so much.
Honestly, it's nice to listen to them with you, Leah. Cuz you're so far away. I'm like, oh.
Oh. Thank you. I know. I love it too. I love these little sessions we have.
Mmuahh. (kissing sound)
Meliza Manalo 1:11:12
We need to figure out what our next one's going to be.
I know. I feel like I had an idea the other day. But that wouldn't work.
Listeners. What would you guys want to hear from us?
Yeah. Tell us what do you want to hear?
Now you know a little bit about personalities. We're extroverts and introverts here.
We've got a mixture of everything here.
Yeah. We have a mixture of everything.
Meliza Manalo 1:11:30
Well, you guys still need to take the 16 personalities quiz.
Can you resend the link?
I never did my...
Meliza Manalo 1:11:37
Yeah, you guys have to do yours.
Meliza Manalo 1:11:42
Okay, that could be our next one.
Yeah. I didn't do my love languages.
You did one episode, though.
Meliza Manalo 1:11:47
You did your episode. Like the introvert extrovert one, right?
Meliza Manalo 1:11:51
Yeah, we did.
Do you guys want to guess my love languages?
Meliza Manalo 1:11:55
Cuz I don't think we did that.
Oh, yeah. You weren't here with us.
You don't have to include this. You don't have to include this in the episode.
Meliza Manalo 1:12:00
Oh, we can include it. That's fine. What are the five again? There's gifts.
Gifts, acts of service, words of affirmation, physical touch and...
Meliza Manalo 1:12:14
Oh, quality time.
Quality time. Yeah.
What are you Leah?
I was joking with them this morning. I was like, I know you guys don't like gifts. But I brought you goodies. (Laughter)
Meliza Manalo 1:12:28
It's like the last on the list if I remember.
Leah, I think yours is quality time.
Meliza Manalo 1:12:32
Yeah. I was saying quality time.
Yeah. Quality time.
Meliza Manalo 1:12:34
Acts of service.
Well, hit the nail on the nose or the head.
I think it's head. Because nails have heads not noses. (Laughter)
