Both my mom and I are tigers and my mom is a metal tiger, same as it is this year, a cycle swinging around that happens every 60 years!
You're right! My body must be too busy sending oxygen to my placenta to supply any extra for my brain. Thanks for the correction! I can rest a little easier then because if I go after Feb. 2nd I'll have a little Rabbit, which gets along well with ALL the Chinese astro signs in my family. I'll have to beat my previous over-baking record of 11 days though... Yowza. *haha*
While I put a lot of stock in astrological compatibility, I know so many people who defy the rules... Mostly because there is a much bigger picture going on than just a Sun sign... Moon sign, all the other planets and their interactions. Being on the Cusp makes this interesting for me... Capricorn is the polar opposite of Cancer and Aquarius is the polar opposite of Leo. This creates an attractive force between myself and Capricorn or Aquarius males(the old opposites attract thing), but an opposing force between myself and females of those signs. This has been a pretty consistent thing in my lifetime... So I find myself hoping that baby is a boy. Not that I would mind at all if we get a girl(my 3yo DD insists we MUST have a girl*haha*). There has only ever been one exception to that... My best friend throughout school was an Aquarius, and we were inseparable.
Gemasita... Wow. Air sign and Water sign having an Air sign. I would think that would make for a very spontaneous family. Calls to mind unpredictable wind whipped waves, or quickly moving clouds, or driving rain. Like everything you guys come in contact with will be surprised by the impact. I bet that makes for a fun mix!
SumnerRain... That is a LOT of Earth and Water in your family! How does the lone Air sign fair? My DD is an Air sign, and I know she keeps us on our toes, and I think we all appreciate her ability to lighten things up... Without her it'd be way more intense.
Adorkable... I don't I know much about Tigers. I DO know that having multiples of the same sign in a family can be tense. My DH is a Snake, and so is his DD, my DSD. Quiet, introspective, sneaky, possessive... Doubling that up? SHEW!! In my large family of seven kids growing up, we all had different Chinese astro signs. It was like a zoo. But when you've got my DH and DSD in the same room, it is very much like spending too much time in the reptile exhibit. They make me nervous. *haha* Care to share any of your thoughts on living with a Tiger?
Monic82... Well that will bring you guys into a perfect balance with two Earth signs and two Air signs. It should be interesting to see how that changes your family dynamic, as Earth has been the dominating sign for a while.
A funny note on Chinese Astrology... When my DS was a baby, he reminded me of a monkey. The noises he made, the way he carried himself, and he had this crazy thing for bananas. I know that sounds silly, but all of this came to mind before I ever looked up his sign. It seemed to me like a coincidence. And then my daughter was born, and I swear she snorted and rooted around and was bright eyed and wild just like a little pig. Again, maybe a coincidence... But I am waiting to see if this baby reminds me of a little Tiger or Rabbit, respectively. *haha*
