Birthday's and Astrology

This month's EtsyBloggers's Blog Carnival theme is special birthdays or astrological signs.  Now I can't say I am a huge believer in astrology and I certainly don't plan my life according to my horoscope but there does seem to be some relevance in the characteristics  of each astrology sign.  I was born in February which makes me a Pisces.  In many ways the descriptions of Pisces fits me pretty well.

Pisces Strength Keywords:

- Compassionate
- Adaptable
- Accepting
- Devoted
- Imaginative

Pisces Weakness Keywords:

- Oversensitive
- Indecisive
- Self-pitying
- Lazy
- Escapist

I am definitely oversensitive and sometimes indecisive but I don't think I am lazy.  

"Pisces does not take well to a position of leadership or high business person, they are too sensitive and lacking in self-discipline and lacking self-confidence for a positions such as that. What they are good at is is writing, acting, poetry, or being musicians. Pisces are excellent at anything that tugs at the heart strings and mystical/spiritual. They are extremely creative and can use their skills of creativity and their understanding of people to inspire others. Unfortunately, most Pisces take the easy way out in life and never attain the degree of fame that they possibly could, they have to stop self-doubting themselves because they are capable of being good role models and leaders to others, people do look up to them."

A lot of this fits me and I work to overcome especially self-doubt.

April Soaps of the Month Giveaway

Time for April's soap GIVEAWAY!  This month's featured soaps are Rose and Rosehip and Patchouli.

                        Rose and Rosehip


Rose and Rosehip makes a wonderful facial soap because it has added rosehip oil which is great in helping to  reduce wrinkles and premature signs of aging.  My Patchouli soap is a favorite among patchouli lovers simply because it has that true earthy patchouli scent.
