       I'm wiiiide open to suggestions - *but* they gotta have some form of logic which extends beneath, between and behind the scope of the halfbakery - I've not found a listing on google of collective terms, other than plural forms for the signs. I think the list - as is - is possibly too halfbakerish for outsiders to *get*.

       A tropic of Capricorns?
madradish, Dec 24 2002
  

       [madradish] Bah! Being born towards the end of June, I would prefer to have a tropic of Cancers. But failing that, perhaps a malignance of Cancers would fit?
cp, Dec 24 2002
  

       Yes, I think so!   

       Speaking as a Virgo, I think a nitpick of Virgoans might be appropriate (not that I believe in all of that astrology nonsense).
madradish, Dec 24 2002
  

       Love this! (It's been long needed)
Marassa, Dec 24 2002
  

       Being a Pisces, I don't think "school" really fits well with me, what with the sluffing and all. Perhaps "a Slice of Pisceans?" As in "slice of pie?" Get it? Yeah, it sucks. Nevermind.
AfroAssault, Dec 24 2002
  

       An "Explosion of Pisceans" (for AA)

       A septic tank of astrologers.
landruc, Dec 25 2002
  

       A Pan of Capricorn(ian)s. Not sure where the ‘Trip’ reference came from on that one. Pan was the ancient Greek name given to the demigod that is Capricorn. Love the rest of them!
Shz, Dec 25 2002
  

       An orderly queue of Virgoans. A jabber of Geminis.
Miss Bianca, Dec 26 2002
  

       How about a piece of pisceans, or a score of scorpios.   

       That's not exactly fair, waugs..... (see links)   

       Astrology dates from the 4th millenium B.C.E. and has millions of believers worldwide.

       A chinashop of Taureans?
Helen Highwater, Jun 28 2003
  

       damn...I thought this was going to be about gaining bargaining power by allying yourself with those born at the same time of year......
normzone, Dec 16 2003
  

       Wouldn't it be more of a herd of taureans?   

       A book of librarians?
