Chinese Horoscopes

Last night I got the strange urge to figure out what Chinese Zodiac year each of my characters were born in and if their sign actually went along with their character at all. This required me to make a chart that went back to 1677, since that's when Amok was born. I know all their birth dates, so that was easy enough. Sean Patrick came out startlingly accurate, born in the Year of the Pig 1863, element Water. According to my Chinese Horoscope book, this: "The influence of Water makes the generous, kind Pig infinitely malleable and too trusting for his or her own good. Nevertheless, these elemental Pigs are adept at dealing with people and have a gift for divining what is going on in other people's minds. As a result, although they are easily influenced, they can also be highly persuasive with others. By nature helpful and kind, they like to be of service. A hard worker and often keen and successful in business, this is also a very sociable Animal who loves parties. Yet in fact, the Water Pig is happiest of all in the bosom of the family." The positive character traits are sincerity, gregariousness, diligence, generosity, obligingness, unpretentiousness; negative traits are naivety, materialism, superficiality, pigheadedness, gullibility, laziness. In the West-meets-East section, he's an Aries Pig, "energetic and full of joie de vivre. They make warm and affectionate friends... they have huge appetites, both physically and mentally, and can take on any task that is thrown at them. They are open and trusting in life, enthusiastic, and optimistic."

I couldn't have pegged his character better if I'd done that on purpose. It was wholly by chance, honest.

Amok is a Fire Snake (Aquarius);
Raf (Earth II/Werewolf version) is a Metal Tiger (Aries);
Matt is a Metal Dog (Capricorn);
Cody is a Earth Horse (Scorpio); and
Della is a Metal Monkey (Leo).

In the wide world of fun LJ quizzes, this was gakked from sillymagpie:

Which ElfQuest Character Are You? (FEMALE)

Huh. I always identified more with Nightfall.

I was depressed this morning. I chalk it up to PMS (post, fortunately), since it had no other reason behind it. It went away during the day, though. Busy day, so it went by fast.

Just heard on the CBS 6 O'Clock news: Sperm and pond scum move the same way.

"Metal Monkey" sounds like a band name. ;-)

I'm going to have to play with your Chinese astrology book. I know my Chinese sign is Tiger, but I don't know it's elemental association.

You and rahirah are both Water Tigers. "The Water element has a calming effect, so these Tiger types are calmer and more placid than their fellow cats. Their ability to take people's feelings and ideas on board makes them very reasonable and understanding. They are also endowed with great insight and strong powers of intuition, which gives them excellent judgement. The Tiger habit of watching and waiting before leaping can make these Tigers appear unable to make up their minds. They might occasionally find themselves snoozing and watching the ripples, instead of going for the prize they had in mind."

Oh, now, would I do...oooooh, pretty water! (yawn) (snooze)

At least tigers are one of the few cats that like water. :-)
