Enter the Year of the Rabbit
Happy Chinese New Year!
I just learned something very interesting. Jie Jie and I were both born in the Year of the Monkey!
I have this book called The Secret Language of Birthdays and I looked up Jie Jie's birthday, which I know is accurate, and these are some of the things it has to say about those born on her day:
Display great ingenuity and well as imagination.
Find it natural to think creatively.
They like to make things around them run smoothly, not only for the well-being of others, but also because they then can guarantee themselves the greatest amount of personal latitude and freedom from inhibiting responsibilities.
Make no bones about their wish to have fun, but at the same time are very serious about principles and ideals.
Are sympathetic as well as empathetic, therefore feel the pain of others more keenly than the average person.
Like to be free to roam, to think as they wish, to let their minds play over all the wonders of the world.
Are intensely curious and want to investigate most everything around them.
About health, which is surprisely similar to my own:
Are extremely sensitive to the environment, and must be attuned to possible allergies.
Skin can be particularly sensitive.
Should keep active, vigorous exercise is recommended, with plenty of rest in between.
