So . . . it’s my blog’s birthday and I am officially embarking on Year 3. Time for some profound self-reflection . . .
Lately I have been noticing a preponderance of pigs. First, on New Year’s Eve, I drew a good luck candy from a bag a friendheld out to me and it was this little pig.
Then, today, we went to a friend’s 50th birthday party and this was part of the buffet. A sow’s head.
I admit it grossed me out. Even more so when my husband proceeded to slice off part of its cheek and an ear – which he then actually ate. How did we two ever end up married? But more to the question: why were these pig images showing up everywhere?
My first theory was that maybe we are entering the Year of the Pig in Chinese zodiac. So I looked it up – and promptly had to scratch that idea. It seems that the same week we get our new president, we will move from the Year of the Monkey to the Year of the Rooster . . . hmmm . . . from monkey business to crowing . . . . Maybe these Chinese were on to something!
I checked out my own zodiac and discovered a few things. I had known that I was born in the Year of the Tiger, but I found out that I also grew up as a Tiger, became a Rat in my married life, and that my internal true identity is a Dragon.
And my husband is an Ox.
As you can see, Oxen don’t mix well with either Tigers or Dragons (“Worst couple”), so thank goodness for my married inner Rat. (Notice the little red heart and “Perfect match” in the chart below.)
I then cross-checked with the Tiger’s love compatibility and got the same results. Oxen and Tigers are a no-go.
There was one thing left to do to verify these findings – I checked out my husband’s married life sign, hoping it would produce one of the three red hearts in the chart above. And, thank goodness, it did!
My husband is a pig! Yeaayy!
