I have a book that is more pop-culture and fun to read but check out what wiki says:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_zodiac
but even though I enjoy reading this stuff (I don't retain this stuff for some reason) if you just randomly pick a sign and read it, you'll see that it could apply to you. Same goes with the Western zodiak, in my opinion
I found the wiki info interesting and curious that so many negatives were listed LOL. I think we all have some of everything (except for me because I am a saint. just kidding)
Don't worry about clashes or harmonious signs, all that goes out the window once the kids are teenagers anyways.
btw, I am an earth Monkey, my DH is a goat (or sheep depending on translation), DS is also a goat and DD is a pig (a golden pig, born in 2007). Goats and pigs are not supposed to get along with monkeys... DH and I have been together since our late teens. and sure my 8yo acts like some kind of teenager some days but heck, that is human nature. My DD is 4 and has had a mind of her own since she was in the womb when I wanted to see the gender and she refused to accommodate the tech. sigh. But that's ok, they keep me all on my toes and my eye keeps twitching and my head keeps adding grey hairs. LOL
So your snake (if you get pg after
May) will be your very own snake to keep you on your toes too
(and the parenting book industry alive)
(omg I just looked up what my mother is. she's also a monkey. I don't want to be my mother!! lol but there you have it)
Do you know how snakes pass the cold winter? All bundled up together. I think that is sweet. Oh course I'd be the loudest scream in the bunch if ever I discover one of these hibernaculum and the fastest out of there but on TV, they look pretty darn cool.
But to me, the hibernaculum, is like a symbol of family, all intertwined and close. (how grossly optimistic is that??!! LOL)
me:42, DH 44
DS: born by c-sec Apr15'03, 9lbs5oz 41wks gest. (after 4 years of ttc, starting in 1998)
DD born by c-sec Oct 13 2007, 8lbs13oz 39wk gest. (after just under 3 years of ttc)
~~DS was conceived naturally the cycle following a cancelled DE IVF, using my good friend's eggs. She was on the verge of hyperstimming.
~~DD's nat conception I attribute to using OPKs like a crazy nut, eating grapefruit daily and using preseed. also 5 cycles of TCM ending 2 cycles before that lucky cycle.
