In our home we like to follow some Chinese beliefs. One of these is the Chinese New Year and all that it brings. This year is the Luna Year of the Snake and one that will bring great fortune and allowing to rid ourselves of old skin and have a fresh start. So, I was wondering after our traditional lucky chicken lunch, what animals we represent in the Chinese Zodiac.
Faith is a Rabbit. Everyone likes to be around a rabbit, they are affectionate, obliging, and pleasant. However, can get too sentimental and sometimes seem too delicate. They keep out of disputes, even if they have to turn a blind eye and walk away. Well it says it all really, this is faith down to a T!
Lillibet was born in th eYear of the dragon. Dragons are full of vitality and enthusiasm, Dragons are popular individuals, despite being seen as foolhardy or crazy at times. They are intelligent, gifted perfectionists that are demanding of others. Dragons enjoy attracting attention. To Dragons, rules and regulations are made only for others. You see, this is Lillibet too.
Mr.Zeus in an Ox and at times can be chauvinistic and demanding. In fact, the strength of an Ox comes out in great shows of determination, obstinance and defense for what they believe in. Although they enjoy their private life and doing things on their own. Well I couldn't have put him better myself!
Now there is ManSlave, he is a Lion in the Zodiac and a Tiger in the Chinese Zodiac, so a double dose of feline integrity. Tigers are sensitive, emotional and capable of great love. They are extremely competitive, especially when it boils down to honor or protecting the ones they love. They need independence but love to dominate and make great natural leaders. This is very true of ManSlave and of course he is the head of our little Pride
So what of Momma and me? Well we are a pair of pigs and together we make splendid companions. We are intellectuals with a very strong need to set difficult goals and carry them out. We are sincere, tolerant, and honest. By expecting the same from others, we are incredibly naive and sometimes taken advantage of. Regardless, we seldom hold a grudge. Pigs are exceptionally funny and good-humoured and will overlook other people's faults for the sake of social harmony. We love our homes and spend most of our time and energy indulging ourselves with the best of everything. Well, just to quote 'Mary Poppins' We are practically perfect in every way!
