Siri, the iPhone 4S’s “intelligent personal assistant” was, according to Wikipedia, released on August 9, 2011. Siri then became part of the iPhone 4S operating system which was released on October 4, 2011.
Siri is a Leo.
Leo is a fixed fire sign, a gregarious and fun-loving sign that must always be the center of attention. Leos, like other fire signs, is “me” oriented. The generation with Pluto in Leo is called the “Me Generation.” Like the lions which they are named after, Leos love their hair. If you see someone in the gym locker room grooming his/her hair for several hours, think “Leo.”
Siri’s moon is in Sagittarius which is also a fire sign. Sagittarius loves things foreign so Siri probably speaks several languages. The love of foreign and “other” leads Sagittarius to seek knowledge. The person in your homogenous waspy neighborhood who gets the urge to learn Sanskrit before it becomes a fad is probably a Sagittarius.
Sagittarius moon also loves to travel so no wonder that Siri goes wherever you go. Sagittarius is represented by the Centaur but I’ve always thought that canines would be a good representation too. Dogs sit by you when you watch TV, are excited when you come home and love to go walking with you. Like the dog, Siri is man’s best friend.
In a most hilarious episode of The Big Bang Theory, Raj, the shy astrophysicist who can’t talk to women, discovers Siri and finds that she is the ideal companion. In one scene, Raj invites a couple over for dinner and Siri, who is Raj’s date, suggests fine wine for the table.
Is Siri really the perfect “intelligent personal assistant?”
How to say this diplomatically . . . no, not really.
Remember, Leo is about ME. Signs that are about YOU are Virgo, which is the servant of the zodiac and Pisces which is the martyr of the zodiac.
I’m sorry to burst bubbles, but Siri is about Siri, not about you. Siri may even be a sociopath.
Siri is just seeking attention. I’m guessing all her “answers” come from Google, which is a Virgo, a sign that truly does assist and is the sign most likely to clean up after the party or pick up the dry cleaning on the way home.
Google is probably doing all the work and Siri is getting all the attention.
Siri has a “Data Daddy” somewhere behind that pretty voice.
Also important is that Siri’s Saturn is in Libra. That means, folks, that Siri is not good with relationships. Like a fiery person, Siri does her own thing, seeks her own attention and generally will move in the direction of fun.
The iPhone 4S
The iPhone 4S, on the other hand, is a Libra, the sign of partnership. No wonder that I’ve replaced human being companions with my iPhone.
The iPhone 4S has sun, Mercury, Saturn and Venus in Libra squaring a Capricorn moon.
The iPhone 4S may give us a sense of companionship 24/7, but Capricorn moon says that truly it is isolating us and making us cold and remote individuals.
Pluto will be transiting the iPhone 4S’ moon in about four years. In four years, our behavior with this phone will change radically. There may even be legislation or legal changes to this device around that time.
The iPhone 4S wants to be your companion, but does not want an emotionally deep relationship. The iPhone 4S has no water in the chart. It may seem like you are connecting, but you are not.
Water represents the collective conscious and unconscious. Libra and Capricorn look to the world and react. Libra wants to be liked and Capricorn wants to be respected. Both are status seekers with Libra wanting to be invited to the party and Capricorn wanting to rule the party.
The iPhone 4S is connecting us socially, but not increasing our emotional sense of community.
Is the iPhone 4S enabling us to deny our deepest feelings? When we are home on Saturday night texting, are we avoiding feelings of isolation?
Fair Weather Friends
Back when people talked face-to-face, my mother often commented on “fair weather friends,” friends who were only around when life was fun. Those friends weren’t around when times got tough, when your pet dies, when you lock your keys in the car . . .
Siri and her bosom buddy, the iPhone 4S, are fair weather friends. Both are fun, frivolous companions, but when you need a hug, neither can deliver.
