#Personal piece post (ppp for short).
Recently I’ve become more intrigued by astrology and the Zodiac signs, as a tool to use in understanding their behaviors; not so much as a way to define character.
I thought it would be fun to take the last seven Chinese Zodiac animal signs and characterize them in a personal way. I’ve lived in California for seven years, so each of these represents a year for me in a way. The year of the Pig I moved down to start art school, taking out lots of loans. The year of the Rabbit was the year after graduation, so not such a good year. Despondent in the realities of day-job life, I carried around the year of the tiger in comparison for the next few years to come. However, things improved. The year of the Dragon I was hired at a game-studio to be a full time artist, but subsequently lost the job the next year. Snake had its ups and downs, more uncertain than the rest.
I read up on horse-people. The zodiac sign, not centaurs. Apparently they thrive in groups and like attention, but also are quick to learn and find their independence. Sounds pretty good to me. Kinda jealous I’m only an ox. But I have a feeling that this year the horse is going to push forward and conquer new land. Perhaps I feel like that at the start of every new year. Its only month two, so we still have time.
