It's my birthday! ~ a red letter day?
according to this appraisal of my childishness.
Except, I'm a Dog
which makes me 23, 35, 47, 59, 71 or 83.
Or 95. You decide.People born in the year of the dog are usually candid, honest, generous, righteous, studious and energetic, which makes it easy for them to attract the favor of the opposite sex.
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes and yes. And yes please.They are kind-hearted, always ready to listen to and share other people's cares and burdens. They know how to get along well with others. Sometimes they will protect the interests of other people even by sacrificing their own. If there's someone often paying a handsome reward, he must be a person born in the year of the dog.
But financially better off than me.They seldom lose their temper, even when they're abused by other people. They do, however, flare up sometimes, but only for a moment, and never out of jealousy. When they have conflicts with others, they always try to make compromises instead of harboring hatred in their hearts.
True.When they are determined to do something, they will hold on to the very last.
Let go, let go!They always choose respectful careers, and are sure to achieve success by conscientious hard work.
And sheer brilliance.They always guard themselves from abuse, and will only make friends with people in whom they have full confidence.
That's me and Sid then.Gifted with a special sensitivity, they have keen insight into other people's minds. Dividing others into either friends or opponents they will not judge a person without foundation, but once they have developed an opinion of somebody, it is difficult for them to change it.
So, you've got one shot to convince me.Usually they will give you good advice. Pragmatic by nature, they can help those who boast to overcome their shortcomings. They often think it necessary to point out other people's mistakes so as to help them develop an objective view of themselves and the reality.
Stop bragging and listen to me. You're a berk.Though they don't value money very much, they have an unparalleled ability to bring in money when they are in need of them.
The poorhouse has beckoned a few times, that's true.
But I'm not in debt.
By much.They always appear to be in high spirits, but actually in their hearts there is a shadow of pessimism. Sometimes they worry too much, imagining dangers around every corner.
Not sure about this last bit. WATCH OUT !!!
I'm also a typical Aquarian
, which means that I don't believe in astrology. It also means that I'm humane, frank, serious minded, genial, refined, sometimes ethereal, and idealistic, though this last quality is tempered with a sensible practicality.
I'm also quick, active and persevering without being self-assertive, and express myself with reason, moderation and sometimes, a dry humor.Aquarius is said to govern the legs from knees to ankles and the circulation of blood, its natives are susceptible to ailments particularly in the legs and ankles, such as cramps, and are also liable to spasmodic and nervous complaints, as well as wind, catarrh, diarrhea, dropsy, goiter and delirium tremens - so that the avoidance of alcohol is important for those Aquarians who have a taste for it.
