Happy Lunar New Year!  According to the Chinese Zodiac Marcail will be a Metal Tiger.  Just for fun I went to find out what that means…

Chinese Zodiac – Tiger

Occupying the 3rd position on the Chinese Zodiac, the Tiger symbolizes such character traits as bravery, competitiveness and unpredictability. Tigers love to be challenged and will accept any challenge if it means protecting a loved one or protecting their honor. They don’t worry about the outcome because they know they’ll always land on their feet. Don’t let their calm appearance fool you though; Tigers will pounce when they feel it’s necessary.  Born to lead, Tigers can be stubborn if they realize they’re not in charge. They have a slight tendency to be selfish but overall, Tigers are extremely generous. They’re very intelligent and they’re always on alert. Tigers are very charming and are well-liked by others. They are not motivated by money or power.

Metal Tiger – 2010
Assertive, competitive and sharp, once Metal Tigers set their sights on their goals there’s no stopping them. They’ll always do what’s necessary to remain at the center of attention. Metal Tigers tend to jump to conclusions; a behavior they need to work at improving.

Passionate, vigorous, enthusiastic, bold, sociable, energetic, optimist.

Restless, reckless, impulsive, impatient, hotheaded, vain, disobedient.

Famous Tigers:
Demi Moore, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Cruise, Victoria Beckham, Joaquin Phoenix. Judy Blume, Emily Bronte, Emily Dickinson, Isadora Duncan, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Barbara McClintock, Marilyn Monroe, Marco Polo, Beatrix Potter.

w/ the Monkey (that would be me): Rivalry and personality clashes. No areas of common interest. Cannot see eye to eye or endeavour to settle their differences. 
(Great – I’m apparently giving birth to my own nemesis! lol. )

w/ the Sheep (that’s Jason): No outright confrontations or rivalry. Workable only to certain extents. Will not have deep ties or be able to make lasting or permanent relations.  (HA!  He’s going to dote on her so much she won’t be able to help but adore him back). 

Personally, I wasn’t at all surprised to find out my daughter might be unyielding and stubborn…  She’ll come by that naturally regardless of when she’s born! 

w/ love,
