This week’s theme for the Flickr Macro Monday group is “Zodiac.” From this week’s instructions (from Alan Rust):
Want to be crabby? Have something fishy going on? Shoot the bull? Have double vision? Really what we want are macros of objects that reflect or represent one, or more, of the 12 signs of the Roman zodiac (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces). Just a couple of points, for this week, cats are NOT lions and so that there is no confusion, shots of pictures of the sign/symbol or constellations are not allowed. Get in close, really close ………. closer still and take a photo.
My darling husband of 20 years is a Scorpio. He reminded me that he gave this scorpion embedded in glass to Dominic for a gift after we moved here. Fiery, intense, passionate, loyal… the scorpion is an accurate representation of this Zodiac water sign. From Wikipedia:
Astrologers believe Scorpios are ruled by their desires, but that their strength is resourcefulness, and that their resourcefulness allows them to control their desires unless they have a plan to achieve them. Scorpios are analytical and meditative, and ponder data to create a realistic plan; self-deception is not something a Scorpio does. The Scorpio is secretive and intense, though their careful approach to planning and action can appear as a lack of intensity. The Scorpio is good at hiding their feelings, which can cause problems in their relationships. They do not try to please others, and do not care what the world thinks of them.
For the most part, this description does describe Curtis… except for the last sentence. He tries very much to please others, and especially in the business world, he does care what others think of him. I read a few other descriptions on some astrology sites and was surprised by how much of his personality is attributed to his Zodiac sign. Super interesting!
