The funny thing about birthdays is that when you’re little they can’t come quickly enough, and when you’re older you eventually come to deny (or forget) their existence.
I think I’d like to go back to 35. I had a fair amount of wisdom, then, my children were still young, and it was a time when I didn’t feel the least bit jaded or cynical. My mom has always said, before I even heard of “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” (Fitzgerald, F. Scott. 1922) that we should live our years backward, so we could truly appreciate them. The older I become, the more that statement rings true.
While I yearn for invincible, idealistic me, I truly appreciate the lessons I’ve learned along the way as well as the knowledge I’ve acquired from them.
ON THIS DAY:
I was born on a Tuesday around 3:00 a.m. on July 27th, 1965.
What happened that day:
I do believe astrology can tell a lot about who we are– not the everyday horoscope (most of those are so general, they can apply to anyone), but I believe in the stars. I believe that at the moment I was born, the cosmic universe influenced who I’d become. Moreover, my astrology chart (in depth analysis of where the stars & planets are aligned when one is born and how it affects one’s personality) is surprisingly accurate.
My Sun sign is Leo
It’s true I need a lot of attention, but unlike the characteristic Leo I shun to be the center of it. I don’t like being put on the spot nor am I comfortable in the limelight. That said, I am a teacher which puts me at the center of attention in my classroom, but I often try to deflect that to my students. Instead, I ascribe to the teacher as coach model.
Extremely spirited, my spiritual side is something I’m always guided by. Moreover, I am completely persistent and dedicated— loyal to people and ideas, sometimes to a fault. Sometimes my persistence and passion can be misconstrued, I think, for being pushy and blunt which I never mean to be. I’m just extremely committed to my convictions, albeit sometimes to the extreme of stubbornness.
My Rising sign is Gemini
I am restless needing to be busy at all times which lends me to be a bit of a juggler, having many projects going at all times– always a goal ahead of me. I love new experiences, something to look forward to. I do not live in the past, instead, I’m usually looking ahead, sometimes appreciating the now, but not nearly enough.
Communication is at the center of all I do and am. I’m a reader and a writer, and a talker, certainly, a chief role in my career, but I love to talk to people all sorts of people– only I’m not to good at small talk. Being a deep thinker, I enjoy deep and meaningful conversation.
My Moon sign is Cancer
True, I am strong emotionally but I wouldn’t say I’m extremely secure emotionally. I constantly dissect, everything, and am full of self-doubt. There is a constant struggle between what’s true in my heart and what I know in my head, for this is the greatest challenge of this life for me. Conversely, I am very confident, though it was long earned, in my mothering abilities which first debuted at an extremely young age. My propensity for nurturing has always been a very strong one and I’ve always been extremely intuitive by nature, more so relying on instinct than reason. I think I love so strongly because of my innate need to be loved equally.
Here is how I see myself:
