Back in the days when I was a teenager, such a long time ago that it feels a life time, I remember my auntie and her zodiac books. She could tell you your sign in the European zodiac and the Chinese one and what animal are you, what flower and what tree. She would study all these and give you a reading that I found so accurate it was scary. I believed in it and I have vague memories about arranging my day according to the zodiac advice from the local newspaper.

Thinking about it now it seems so crazy and childish. I can tell you I am TAURUS – like their celestial spirit animal, Taureans enjoy relaxing in serene, bucolic environments, surrounded by soft sounds, soothing aromas, and succulent flavors. Taurus is ruled by Venus, the enchanting planet that governs love, beauty, and money. Taurus’s Venusian influence make this earth sign the most sensual of the zodiac: These cosmic oxen are enchanted by any physical manifestation of comfort and luxury. Pleasure is a necessity for epicurean Taureans, and they feel most content when pampered. What a Taurus perceives as dedication is often regarded by others as stubbornness. Accordingly, these bulls may end up lingering in unhealthy situations — whether relationships, jobs, or homes — longer than necessary just to prove a point. Despite their occasional obstinance, however, Taureans are dependable partners, soothing their friends and lovers through their trustworthiness and devotion

I am a MONKEY according to the Chinese zodiac – smart, clever and intelligent, especially in their career and wealth. They are lively, flexible, quick-witted and versatile. In addition, their gentleness and honesty bring them an everlasting love life. Although they were born with enviable skills, they still have several shortcomings, such as an impetuous temper and a tendency to look down upon others.

Strengths
enthusiastic, self-assured, sociable, innovative

Weaknesses
jealous, suspicious, cunning, selfish, arrogant

As a flower I am a POPPY – strong, compassionate, and love being surrounded by love and natural beauty. Similar to a poppy flower, they stand their ground (especially on matters they’re passionate about) and exude beauty and positivity

As a tree I am Willow – they say I tend to be highly creative and intuitive and often possess higher IQ. Willow signs understand cycles and know very well that everything that happens in your life can teach you a lesson. This Celtic tree astrology sign is patient and down to earth. Ivy and Birch signs can be a good match for the Willow sign

Not sure exactly weather to believe or not. There are definitely characteristics that are common on all zodiacs and I can definitely tell you that I am sometimes selfish and yes, I do “end up lingering in unhealthy situations” for longer than necessary and that to prove a point, most times to myself rather than to others. I remember few times when I kept friendships with negative people just because I believed every single person has something good inside and somehow, I made it my mission to discover that good no matter how damaged and bad they actually were.

I am quite rooted to the ground and I love planting, I am definitely a sucker for all peace and quiet; I am a pacifist but I won’t back down from a fight if I know I am right. I like to have my say in things and maybe sometimes I make it all too personal but that only because I put my heart in all my projects and no matter the job I have, I will always strive to be the best in what I do. I get attached to people and places and I am as stubborn as a bull but I am also passionate, loving, kind and supportive.

Also, just as the willow tree (I love these trees so much) I understand cycles and know very well that everything that happens in my life can teach me a lesson. I always believe that everything happens for a reason and it will all repeat itself until my lesson is learned. I am patient and I am a very positive person but I do like everyone else have my dark moments and places and I fight to destroy them. I hate vengeance. I love nature and I love comfort. I love my food as well and when I give my heart to someone I am giving it forever.

So, not sure if I actually believe in zodiacs and celestial things but I can definitely say that I can be persuaded.
