(SPOT.ph) President Rodrigo Duterte recently announced his choices for House Speaker and Majority Floor Leader—Taguig-Pateros Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano, who will share the speakership with Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Velasco, and Leyte Rep. Martin Romualdez, respectively—in a move that shook the very foundations of our Constitution (which clearly states that members are to put these influential positions to a vote in Article VI, Section 16). We're not sure just how much Duterte's announcement will sway the House's decision, but it looks like they've got one sure vote in Albay Rep. Joey Salceda. In an interview at CNN Philippines' The Source, Salceda said, "These are three good men, essentially they are all Scorpio."
Now, astrology isn't known for being an exact science: the stars can only be a guide for so much—who you are is still very much your own choice. But we couldn't resist delving a little bit into the zodiac sign! Born anytime from October 23 to November 21, a typical Scorpio "concerns itself with beginnings and endings, and is unafraid of either," says Astrology.com, "They also travel in a world that is black and white and has little use for gray."
So Scorpios appear to be brave and decisive, which sounds good so far, but like all zodiac signs, it isn't all positive. Their traits can be broken down into two sides. The good: Scorpios are focused, brave, balanced, faithful, ambitious, and intutive, and the bad: Scorpios are also known to be jealous, resentful, and manipulative.
To add to the confusion, people online weren't quite following the Representative's statement. Some weren't sure how to react; some were quick to detach their Scorpio selves from the scene, and others just downright disagreed. We take a look at some of the best reactions below:
We've never related to a GIF more.
Sounds like the right course of action!
The House of Scorpio would like to exclude itself from this narrative, thank you.
We hope Salceda has!
A friendly reminder.
