One of my quirks is making time to read my horoscope from any available site. I’m not superstitious enough to let what it says dictate how my day or my life will go. I find it interesting to see how accurate the descriptions are, mostly just for fun. Also I suppose, it helps me understand me better, as well as the personalities of the people around me (Yes, I sometimes check their horoscopes too). There’s no harm in classifying them according to the cosmic astrological definitions after all, for as long as you accept them for who they are in your life, right?
Anyway, so I checked the zodiac sign for my soon-to-be born daughter and it turns out, she will be a Piscean, born into a family that consists of an Aquarian (me) and two Sagittarians. (Note: all this news about the shifting of the zodiacs still confuses me, so let’s stick to the old school for now)
Here are some things that struck me about Pisceans, according to the Universal Psychic Guild:
- She is extremely talented but will spend most of her life battling “confusing” conditions.
- She has many vulnerable characteristics, but is considered to be “adaptable and resilient”.
- At her purest she is a guiding light and a visionary, but when “out of tune”, she becomes depressed, obsessive and confused.
A mother’s thought bubble: Yes, definitely a girl.
At the same time, I also check how in-sync the Astrological signs are with the Chinese signs, (in the spirit of the recent Chinese New Year). For some of my friends who aren’t familiar with this, while we aren’t Chinese, there is a strong cultural influence in the Philippines for Chinese traditions.
Each sign is also connected to an element — earth, fire, metal, water and wood — each element taking a turn with each sign every year (so I think if I learned anything in statistics, it takes about 60 years to go through all elements + Chinese zodiac signs). For instance, my husband and I are both Fire Snakes (Although because I was born at the end of the calendar, they say that I am also part Earth Horse), and Sam is an Earth Rat. Again a new element will be added into our mix, since 2011 is the year for the Metal Rabbit.
The following is a description I picked up in a Chinese horoscope site.
“Metal gives Rabbits a more resilient demeanor that the other more-quiet Rabbit. Rabbits are very ambitious and can be quite crafty in dealing with others. They throw themselves and their emotions into everything they do, making them intense lovers, but not outwardly affectionate lovers. Their determination can affect their work as well, whether through personal relationships with colleagues or with the work itself, a Rabbit can be known to immerse himself in his projects, business and personal.”
The only thing that I didn’t like was that it says both Pisceans and Rabbits are light sleepers (oh no, not again).
So these are what the signs say to expect of my 2nd daughter. How fun. It’s a new take on “What to Expect” don’t you think? I don’t know how much of it will be true, and it should be interesting, because they say Rabbits and Rats don’t get along — but I do hope that isn’t the case. I would love for my daughters to be the best of friends. Then again, only time will tell…. 🙂
