What's Your Sign?

If you are not failing every now and again, it's a sign your not doing anything very innovative
~ Woody Allen
Week #49 LIFE'S Simple pleasures - a sign
You could take this weeks' simple pleasure literally as a physical object... a real piece of wood or metal that has creative, fun, interesting words on it and it can be posted on a wall or a door or on a stick/stake pounded into the ground ... or it could be something that stands for something to someone in some capacity!!!
The last definition sounds, I don't know... kind of spacey?!?  But that word spacey might even be a closer definition to the semiotics study... a 'sign' could very well be something that comes to your mind... out of thin air... and it confirms your purpose at that very moment!
I've always known this, but obviously... the English language is very complicated. So many meanings for one word. 
You can 'sign up'... which means you add your name and signature to a list.
There is 'sign language' ... where hearing impaired people use their fingers and hands to speak words.
There are 'sign of the times' ... signifies the situation evident in the current times.
Hey baby, what's your sign? ... refers to astrological and zodiac celestial spheres
Exit sign ...  a lit information board that tells you where you can go!
What signs can you find today? 
By the way, I am an Aries which is the first sign of the Zodiac. Openness, enthusiasm and individualism are the main traits of the Arians. They are outspoken, alert, quick to act and speak. They prefer to speak than to listen. Arians are ambitious, with lots of drive and a strong will to lead. They are poor followers. Fiercely independent, they usually take the side of the underdog in any controversy. They are champions of lost causes and losing battles. This trait is due to a strong belief in their own abilities to turn any situation around.

The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination ~ Albert Einstein
