You cannot change who you are Ö eventually your true nature will win out ó especially when youíre deprived of food and energy and youíre out in the open, trying to figure out a way to get along with people you donít know if you can trust. We all have our set reactions, and thatís hard to suppress. If Iím a born leader, itís hard for me to take a back seat. If Iím a follower by nature, itís hard for me to lead. ~ Jeff Probst
Signs of Survival uses Astrologyís Sun Sign Profiles (vetted over Ė literally Ė thousands of years)
to identify, group, chart and analyze the behavioral histories of those twelve distinct societies within Survivor.
And everyone with a birthday is invited to join the conversation.
Over the holidays (and beyond), the contents of the thread will change as I add my comments to this pictorial representation of the Sun Signs' performances in San Juan del Sur. And as you add lots and lots, I hope, of yours. In fact, let's just consider this thread Season Twenty-Nine's long and rowdy Winter Wake, shall we?
And I'll also revisit Signs of Survival: San Juan del Sur to tidy up its loose ends: The Merge and Julie's Exit.
But, tonight is the Finale Episode of the Season. So I hope you'll pop in at that post throughout the evening.
The rumor, of course, is that we're about to be disappointed in our winner (or, at least, our host seems to have been). But, it's been really fun until now. And I'm hoping that what JP is experiencing is merely his more-obvious-by-the-Episode disconnect with his audience.
Before skipping on down, though, take a quick look at the chart below that illustrates the casting patterns for all of the twenty-nine completed Seasons.
I'll be back to talk more about it later, but for now I just wanted to point out again how acutely San Juan del Sur's Majority and Minority populations were split. And that given its saturation of Fire and Air Signs, it should have come as no surprise to its producers that it truly was different from every Season before it.
