Etsybloggers April 23, 2010 Blog Carnival

Hosted by our Fearless Leader and EtsyBloggers Mama Blogger, 1st I say Happy Birthday!!! 

1) 4/23 is my birthday!! Tell us your birthday and what astrological sign you are. Do you ever read/follow your horoscope?

2) Tell us about someone's memorable birthday. Yours, a friend's, a child's, a pet's, a family member's, etc.

We are not much on birthday's around here.  Heck, my 50th was last month and nothing happened ... at all?  Well, I guess I got older, but that was it.  Though I will say to those of you up and coming youngin's, 50 is awesome and I'm looking forward to more...

In saying that, I choose #1.  Having a semi-avid interest in astrology I sometimes do read my horoscope.  It is always right.  Now go figure.  How can that be for "all" of us Leo's?  Guessing the generalized horoscope is in some form telling the basics for the day, and not exactly by all of the elements such as the stars, time of day you were born, what state, etc...

Well folks, do you think you can guess my sign?



 Free 2010 Leo Forecast :
 
You love to travel. You are likely to be very emotional and a bit unstable at times. You have a very keen imagination, but you should try to be more open and less self centred.



The conjunction of jupiter and neptune in your birth chart indicates that you will make money with ease, but may spend excessively. You are a bit emotional, but are very religious by nature. You also have artistic and poetic qualities.


They will soon be able to rise above any depression they may have. Wherever they are they spread love & warmth. They love children. They are interested in sports speculation & music.

Nope, not interested in sports speculation ....

RAT: 51% (6 favorable and 6 unfavorable months)As ingenious as the Rat can be financially, the Tiger year does not bode well for any risky ventures. The Tiger's hallmark is leaping before looking, so you should be vigilant so as not to get caught up in clever but uncertain schemes. Things will not always be what they appear this year, and that is especially true in money matters. It is not to say you should make no investments or major purchases this year; however, due diligence erring on the side of caution and conservatism could avert serious losses.


There will be times you think 2010 is a good year and others when you will wonder if the opposite is true. On a positive note, the Metal year produces good fortune for you. The Tiger, on the other hand, is a big cat, and not exactly a friend to the Rat. Two important keys to your success are to be nimble and not to pick fights you have a chance of losing. The Tiger has claws, and defeat is not likely to be pretty. There will be plenty of action this year, which should suit you just fine. Scale back your endeavors in the first six months of the year and make your most concerted efforts during the next six good months. This formula should leave your life's balance sheet in the black at year's end.

Career

The Rat is likely to experience at least one major change in career path or professional role this year. The best strategy is to cultivate flexibility. If changes are not of your choosing, you'll be best positioned to take advantage of new opportunities by relinquishing some control and being your most adaptable self. Your independent nature could be a disadvantage if you don't pay close attention to developments in your field. It is a good time to monitor game-changing trends. The Rat is known for tenacity and resourcefulness, traits that will serve you well. If you are willing to adjust your plans accordingly, this Tiger year could tangibly improve your career prospects in the second half.

Relationships

Loving family relationships are featured prominently in this Tiger year. The Rat may be called upon to provide support to an older relative, thus enhancing a close, and mutually rewarding bond. You shouldn't hesitate to call on family first for assistance or advice. Attend as many events and gatherings of the most important people in your life as possible, or better yet, plan some yourself. In fact, it is advisable to go out of your way to create the environment for happy, memorable occasions to be enjoyed. Romance is not to be neglected either. Proactively expanding your social circle and interests will connect you with one or more exciting new love prospects.

Health

Relaxation will be valuable to your health this year. The Rat has a tendency to never fully unwind, even when participating in so-called leisure activities. This tendency will be even more exaggerated by the Tiger, so your overall well-being will depend on you making a real effort to find true outlets for stress. Some of your hobbies could be unwitting sources of pressure anxiety. Try some non-competitive physical endeavors and practice those that make you feel balanced and at peace instead of simply posing a new set of standards for achievement.

Wealth

As ingenious as the Rat can be financially, the Tiger year does not bode well for any risky ventures. The Tiger's hallmark is leaping before looking, so you should be vigilant so as not to get caught up in clever but uncertain schemes. Things will not always be what they appear this year, and that is especially true in money matters. It is not to say you should make no investments or major purchases this year; however, due diligence erring on the side of caution and conservatism could avert serious losses.

I loved reading in yours that "Loving family relationships are featured prominently in this Tiger year." So glad to hear this for you :)

Yay rats! The part about Tiger not being a friend to the rat makes me wonder how unlucky it is to be a Leo rat?
