Spirit of Water; Spirit of Fire
Yesterday was my twenty-fourth birthday. I would like to thank all those who sent me messages, and there are so many. I will do my best to reply to each and every one you individually (it might take a day or two) but I’m posting this as a general note of appreciation for your kindness.
Yikes, here I am, now entering my quarter century! I was born early in the morning of Monday June 30, 1986, born in the sign of Cancer, born on a Monday in the sign of the Moon! Cancer is, of course, a water sign, but in the Chinese Zodiac I was born in the Year of the Tiger, specifically in the element of Wu Xing, which is fire. So, there you are: water and fire, small wonder I’m such a bundle of contradictions!
Water may be more powerful than fire though in me the reverse seems to be true. The attributes of Wu Xing seem to fit my character better than the attributes of Cancer. I’m unpredictable, rebellious, colourful, powerful, passionate, daring, impulsive, vigorous, stimulating, sincere, affectionate, humanitarian, generous, restless, reckless, impatient, quick-tempered, obstinate, selfish, aggressive, and moody! Then there is this;
Tigers make ardent and virile lovers who dominate their partners. Because of their sensuality, their impetuousness and love of adventure, there is an excitement that not only follows Tigers wherever they go, but also guarantees them a certain irrestible sexy allure. These creatures whose emotions are out-front have strong libidos and are lusty in their passions. Generally flirtatious, they are especially prone to wild flings in their early years but do settle down as they get older. When committed to a happy and fulfilling relationship, Tigers make loving and caring partners, warm-hearted and generous. They don't, however, lose that romantic streak or that exciting ability to surprise.
So, now you know. :-)
The spirit of fire and the spirit of water, is it possible that there's a deeper harmony, a unity to be found in contradictions, a yin yang? Yes, I think there probably is.
