According to my birthdate, I am a lion – “If you are a Lion, quite contradictory to your name, you are a peace loving person. You best try to avoid a situation wherein you are required to fight. An outdoor person, you dislike sitting at one place for a long duration. Popular and easy-going; you are a born leader, and have it in you how to tactfully derive work from people. People love the way you always treat them. You love being loved, and when you receive your share of limelight from someone, you are all theirs!”
My birthstone is an emerald, and emeralds are for balance. “You are a harmonious, easygoing type. You feel most at peace when you are in nature. You are very intuitive. Beyond being able to read people well, you are also quick witted and bright. Emeralds represent spring and renewal. You are always reinventing yourself and pushing for personal growth. You believe that people are dynamic. You are willing to give anyone another chance. You think anyone can change.
You go best with topaz. A topaz will cheer you on in your quest for change and prevent you from becoming complacent. You go worst with turquoise. A turquoise will jolt your serenity and change things up a little too much. You need to focus to grow.”
My birth flower is a lily. “You are artsy and elegant. Your imagination allows you to place yourself in other people’s shoes, which allows you to easily understand and sympathize with those around you. Elegant and impressive – you’re a thinker and connoisseur. You’re a great role model for your friends as well as a valued counselor in all situations.”
This year’s birthday horoscope – “Born today, you like taking on the big, the grand, the glorious, and the epic, no matter how difficult it may be or how much homework it may require. The fact is, you feel more alive when you are grappling with the grandiose issues that are prevalent in endeavors that are themselves larger than life, and so that is the kind of endeavor you will seek out. You understand that it’s not just a matter of taking part; what you really want is to know things. You understand that to do what you want to do, you must learn a great deal about not just what to do, but the how and the why, as well. You are, in effect, a student of life.
When it comes to love, you may never be quite as grounded as you are in your professional endeavors. While you may be painstaking and careful at all times when you are at work, you can be much more flighty and instinctive in love, letting gut reactions shape your decisions and actions.
Also born on this date are: Clint Eastwood, actor and director; Brooke Shields, model and actress; Colin Farrell, actor; Joe Namath, football player; Lea Thompson, actress; Corey Hart, singer; Walt Whitman, poet; Tom Berenger, actor; Chris Elliott, actor; Sharon Gless, actress; Don Ameche, actor; Jim Hutton, actor; Norman Vincent Peale, author.”
What is interesting about putting all of these together is I’ve always loved lions and emerald lilies. However, I never knew those lilies were called emerald lilies, and I never knew there was so many pieces of lion jewelry out there with emeralds on them. What do you think? Should I try to combine my birthstone with my birth animal? Will it bring more balance? Or will it simply be an interesting conversation piece?
