Being a Taurus Woman

If you are not interested in Astrology and their “meanings”. I’d suggest you look away now and stop reading. I do follow Astrology to an extent, not so much the daily stuff. It’s too vague, but I have a moon/planet chart and I definitely do feel like a “Taurus”.

So what do you think being a Taurus woman is about? Do you follow your Astrology sign at all?

Every day there’s something new about what being a particular “Astrology sign” is all about. So here a few that I can absolutely agree with.

  • The first one that I can say without a doubt, is that Taurus’s are stubborn. You probably wont a more stubborn lot in your life. Myself, one of my cousins and a family friend and I are all Taurus’s. We are all annoyingly stubborn and it’s probably the biggest thing we all admit too. The rest may be true and not for others.
  • One of the ones that bug me, that is about expensive taste. It’s true! I don’t always buy the most expensive item, but I always know which one it is!
  • Another trait I dislike, is jealousy. I know I am. Usually though that’s also how I know that I really like someone. The thing is though once you can acknowledge something like jealousy, you can always work on it.
  • The one that makes me laugh the most is always about “seduction”. I am the WORST seducer ever. I start giggling whenever I try, I can’t help it.
  • One of the truer ones though is that physical touching is something that Tauruses enjoy. Not, in the “sexy” sense. When I’m comfortable, especially my romantic relationships. I LOVE the cuddling and the hugging. Even though, on average, I detest it. It’s weird,lol
  • Taurus woman tend to be very loyal and rarely, if at all, cheat. The problem is the Taurus men I know, they have cheated on all their partners.

Astrology and other cool things!

What better way to start a Monday then to tell you about some hobbies that I do. That I can’t actually believe that I have never told you all about!

Now I know the title says Astrology. I am not an actual Astrologer so I can’t not tell you your future/horoscope. However, I am a big follower of it. Now also when I say a big follower of it, I don’t really pay attention to the day to to day. When I was younger my Gran made a chart with different houses and those sorts of ones I pay attention too. Mainly because they’ve been extremely accurate.

My Gran also taught me Reiki and I am a Level Reiki Practitioner (and my bear Tristan). For those who do not what Reiki is, I’ll give you a little quick break down: Reiki is the ancient Chinese healing method with your hands. The great thing about Reiki is that you can do what is called “Absent Healings”. Which is where you give a picture or have a picture in your mind of the person your healing and you use a proxy (hence the teddy bear). I don’t use Reiki so much on other people anymore, but I do on myself at lot at the moment. It really does help. I must stress that it will not necessarily cure anything, but it helps with the stress of the situation. I once was regularly giving Reiki healing for someone who had terminal cancer. Although it did not cure the cancer, she said that it helped her with the pain.

If you ever feel like you need an absent reiki healing, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

My Grandmother also taught me the ways of the Tarot and I do love using my cards. I currently have a Lord of the Rings deck and I’ve had them for years! I love just using them to help clarify any questions or situations that I find myself currently in. Unfortunately though I don’t know why, but I can’t find my deck!

Complete this sentence:  This sandwich could really use some …

fresh bread…lol…This was the first thing I thought of. Usually after you’ve that first sandwich, the rest of the pieces of bread start to go hard. You might get a couple of fresh slices and then that’s it,lol

What is your least favorite candy?

Anything that has “aniseed” flavoring in it. Oh dear god, it is gross! In all the years, as my taste buds have changed, it still is icky and yucky to this day!

What sign are you? Do you believe in astrology?

I am a Taurus ( I’ve had my Birthday already)

Too an extent I believe in my Astrology signs. I don’t really pay attention to the day to day Horoscopes, usually because they are so general. However, I’ve had my chart read into the different houses and those I will listen too. I’m actually planning on go to a Fair this weekend to re-center myself. I do believe in the generalized personalities, that’s because most of the other people I know who are Taurus. We are the same in some ways (even if they don’t want to admit it). The biggest trait is that we are stubborn, and we are. I’m a quiet person but if I believe in something or get an idea in my head, it’s hard to stop me. We are all HUGE procrastination stubborn Bulls!lol…Once we get going, you can’t stop us…Hence, the Bull, i think?

6 Things only a Taurus would Understand.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

I’m not sure if “laughing” at someone is the same thing? I can always guarantee though any time my Dad says he’s coming down, he doesn’t. Then I get a torrent of abusive text messages saying how I never go visit him (he lives over an hour away…by car…and I don’t drive, and he knew all this before he moved up there). It just makes me laugh, as he did it again today, it’s a joke in my family now. We’re all texting each other right now. How he can’t see that this is just more proof of how little he is there for us, I don’t know what else to tell you! The only different between now and when I was a teenager, we’d have to hear it from our Mum that he wasn’t coming, and no abusive text messages, but I am sure he just sent them to my Mum instead.

I may or may not be coming on social media today, as I expect the abuse any moment now.

I can appreciate it though, because it does make me laugh these days. I can appreciate alcohol much better and how I have to “watch it” when it come to myself.

Rats get such a bad wrap…

…Not that I take it personally, my Chinese astrological sign is The Rat.

There are lot of people out there who confused rats with hamsters…I don’t know how

“True rats” are members of the genus Rattus, the most important of which to humans are the black ratRattus rattus, and the brown ratRattus norvegicus. Many members of other rodent genera and families are also referred to as rats, and share many characteristics with true rats.

Over the years some Rats have been taught to be “tamed”…Depending on how long back your pet Rat’s genetics go back can depend on how tamed they are. They are just as healthy as any cat or dog. Some Rats have been taught how to do “tricks” showing how intelligent they can be! They have a very short life span though.

Rats got a bad wrap really in the time of the Bubonic Plague and were totally blamed for the rapid spread. They have now found that they weren’t completely too blame. It spread so quickly and there was no way that it was just the Rats. They are now just starting to discover that, mainly larger, Rats can actually detect tuberculous!

The Rat is also, of course, the first Chinese Astrological Sign…and it’s my sign as well!

It’s generally believed that people who are born in the Year of the Rat are:

  • Wise
  • Charming
  • Quick Witted
  • Pratical
  • Good at saving

It can also depend which you were born as well. There are four different elements to each Chinese Signs:

  • Wood
  • Water
  • Metal
  • Earth and.
  • Fire

I am a “Wood Rat”.

Which Chinese Astrological animal are you? Have you had pet rats, like myself?

Just a note from Cee’s Photography:

“For the next three weeks the questions are from kids.  The Happy Quitter wrote me this weekend and told me about her workshop she does for neighborhood kids and the some of the kids had some suggestions for the Share your World challenge.  I realize there are more than 4 questions so feel free to answer all or only 4 questions.”

  1. What’s your favorite comic figure and why?

My favourite comic character would have to be “The Archies“. I have been reading those comics since I was a child. In this crazy world, I have access to so much that I am able to purchase a lot of Archie things lately. I know a lot of people would probably be a little shock since Harley Quinn could be classified as a ‘comic character’. I am just trying to look at this as purely comic characters.

  1. Name something you wish you could like.

I wish that I could like things straight away as soon as they come out, like the normal people do. I’ve always had this thing if people are pressuring me or pushing me to like something, to watch something, I pretty much will instantly hate it. Whenever a new show comes out and everyone is pushing for you to watch it the moment it comes out. I wait a whole season and THEN start watching it,lol…I think it’s really freaky that people will just push and push you to watch a show, like their life depends on who gets to watch the show the fastest.

  1. Tell me about your first crush / first date / first kiss.

I remember my first non-celebrity crush, I still remember what he looks like…And I still like to point out that I had a crush on him first before Hanson came out,lol. I still remember thinking how gorgeous he was, with his long flowing blonde locks, he was the first boy I liked who was a blonde. Then I find out he drove a mini and he had me.

  1. What sign are you? Do you believe in astrology?

I am a Taurus (The Bull). I do to a certain degree, I do believe that they give us certain characteristics. I mean if you were too look up what it “means” to be a Taurus, you’d probably find that’s pretty much me. Even the personality trait for wanting the finer things. While I generally am known for being happy with my lot, somehow whenever we go shopping. I can always pick out the most expensive item. It’s a little knack, that I can never afford!

Year of the Monkey – Cultural Love

I am a big believer learning from both the Western and Eastern cultures. I am also involved with healing activities that derive from the Eastern cultures. I also think one does need to know that there is nothing wrong with bringing Eastern and Western medicines and using them together. I think it might even be better than just using one all the time.

This Monday is the beginning of the Chinese New Year. With the Chinese culture each year is represented by one of twelve animal signs. This year is the Year of the Monkey. The Monkey is the ninth sign of the twelve year cycle. The origin of the Chinese New Year follows very closely to Astrology. I’ve found that with all different “Beliefs” they are often very similar and lot of them promote love and togetherness. As humans tend to do though, a lot like the game Chinese whispers, people interpret how they want to interpret the words that are written. Losing a lot of the original meaning.

Years of the Monkey include 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016, 2028…
