I'm not big on fortune tellers, and quite frankly I am afraid of Tarot Cards. But I do believe strongly in the personality types defined by astrological signs. I'm an Aquarius. My grandma was an Aquarius. My brother-in-law, my nephew and my niece are Aquarians. I share my birthday with Darren Criss and Cristiano Ronaldo. I like to think we all have some things in common.
February is a big birthday month at Elsie Green (and consequently a big bagel and donut month.) Of the ten ladies we have on the Elsie Green team, three of us have birthdays this month. And while I love all the Elsie Green girls equally, I feel a special kinship with my fellow Aquarians. All the stereotypes applied to Aquarians play out in our sample of three
We're like water: we seek the low ground, we're soft and pliable, but if given enough time we can carve a canyon through a rock
We'll be your ride or die
We can be a bit unpredictable (and dare I say stubborn?)
We celebrate loudly and suffer in silence
We're seekers of beauty
We say what we mean
We love our vision boards and our resolutions
I pride myself in being extremely self-aware and when I see one of my favorite Aquarian traits displayed in one of these lovely young ladies, I well up with pride. And when I catch myself displaying one of my not-so-favorite Aquarian traits I think of my fellow water babies, and it gives me peace of mind. Maybe it's not so bad after all.
