Astrology or coincidence?

I *heart* birthdays.
I will be one of those mums who plans her baby's 1st birthday soon after he's born and will continue throughout his life, regardless of his feelings about the day. 
I cannot understand people who don't want to celebrate the miracle of their birth and the continuous marvel of life and growth and God's Grace. It's borrowed time and can be snuffed out any minute. celebrate the milestones! I just can't understand them.
I have a birthday coming up in 1 week 2 days 3 hours 28 minutes 20 seconds (and counting down). But for once I don't have it covered. All I want to do this year is fly away. Literally. Into a tree or cave and hibernate, I'm knackered. Hopefully it is the malaria or whatever it is that I have gone to contract talking and I will snap out of it and be perky soon. *fingers crossed*
 Anyway, I just came across this eerily accurate description of myself. I'm not a fan of astrology, maybe it's because my star sign is a goat..I mean really, how did I not end up as something sexier. Aponky3 paa, smh. but this is majorly on point:

December 23 Capricorns have a great deal of emotional pluck (pumps fist). If plans fail, they simply start again (what else can you do?? duh!). Because of their good attitude and ability to motivate others, they make excellent mentors. Although they may seem scatterbrained, they have great organizational abilities (so true, I somehow manage to pull stuff together). Witty and intelligent, they are exceptionally verbal for people of their sign (oh, the others are quiet ehh?)
Friends and Lovers: Because they have such a likable nature, December 23 individuals make friends effortlessly but are unlikely to reveal confidences (my excuse is that I forget and/or hope you do the same) or ask for advice (I am almost past that..). Love is a permanent and practical factor in their lives (love which I can't find, but yeah). They value stability and do not usually seek separation or divorce unless there is no alternative (one of my worst 'fears' is divorce).
Children and Family: December 23 natives love the traditions of family and typically have happy memories of childhood (yes! I still remember most of what happened when I was a little kid. I was sooo happy! aww! *reaches for childhood album*). Though their upbringing is likely to have been strict, they look at this as positive (I hated my mum especially, she was awful!! but I love her too much now). They are good parents who do everything to provide stability for their child (I sure will). Though they promote fun, they are strict on discipline (none of that friend-parent stuff till you're old. I will beat them into submission).
Health: People born on this date have a common-sense approach to good health.(*scratches head* I do?) By not overdoing anything (Lmao, really? one of the things said to me the most is "relax"), they reap the rewards without losing out on the occasional need to indulge a bad habit. Health problems are typically minor, but problem skin is not unknown (that facial better have me looking like Halle Berry). If they make water their main beverage, the skin condition is likely to clear up (did my mum put them up to this??? *raised eyebrow*)
Career and Finances:
People born on this date are serious about career ambitions (i be serious pass! waay too serious). They work hard, learn quickly (that's me!), obey the rules (even when I don't want to), and they know that professional shortcuts can be deceptive. They often spend a great deal of money on home decorating ("nesting" I was told), with an eye for antiques and other objets d'art that will increase in value (ooook! Eyes, start working on that).
Dreams and Goals: To climb to the top without fudging the rules is a common goal of December 23 people (yup, no corruption for me, so help me God. making it the right way). They know what they want and are willing to work (mega) hard to get it, no matter how hard that may be. They never blame setbacks on anyone but themselves. If a goal becomes impossible to fulfill, they replot the course.(Plan B -G if necessary)

You should embrace: Details (the little things and the fine print), imagination (I have embraced it and for this reason I do not watch porn or horror films), a personal agenda (I'm working on that)

You should avoid: Stress (I am in the wrong profession), demoralization (I live in the wrong country), indifference (a name pops into mind, personifies that word)

So how is most of this so accurate? and does that mean all people born on the 23rd of December around the world automatically have these same characteristics and ideals?? Mind blowing isn't it. I do not want to encourage any hocus pocus but check yours out at: http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/family/birthday-astrology-guide.htm and let me know how close to home yours hit or if it was a disastrous miss. 
Be honest with yourself, after all if you can't admit the truth to yourself who can you tell?
