A to Z – The ABC’s of Me: A

A (4)

It’s time, it’s time… the April A to Z Challenge  is beginning! This is my seventh year of participation, and my intent this year is to share a little bit about me each day… the good, the bad, and the ugly… so you can get to know “the woman behind the words” a little better! 🙂

A is an easy letter to begin with, because my birthday falls in early February and that makes me an Aquarian.  I am an Aquarian through and through.  Here are some of the general traits associated with my astrological sign…

For the most part, I’d say it’s pretty accurate, both good and bad. I am certain that friends and family would agree. 🙂

Aquarians are friendly, open-minded, and love deep conversations. I can often identify a fellow Aquarian by their attitude about things, and I’ve never met one I didn’t like.

We are often viewed as outsiders, distant and unapproachable; The rest of the world tends to see us as a bit strange. I used to try to act “normal”, as was expected of me,  but as I grew older I gave that up as hopeless, and learned to appreciate and even celebrate my unique perspective on life. I like being me. 🙂

While there are no “cookie cutter” Aquarians and we are all individuals in our own right, if you take the time to get to know one, you will discover that we make loving and devoted friends… just don’t take advantage of that; we are more sensitive than we may appear, and can shut someone down and remove them from our life on a moment’s notice if they hurt us.

Additionally, don’t try to confine an Aquarian, we are freedom-loving to the max, and if we feel restricted we get restless and rebellious, and look for ways to break free. If you give us room to breathe and grow and express our individuality, we will stay on our own accord!

What is your astrological sign?  Do the traits for that sign fit you?

I've been blogging off and on since August of 2006. I adopted the pen name Josie Two Shoes in 2007 as I began a new chapter of my life standing on my own two feet. Now I'm married to the man of my dreams; we live in dusty West Texas with a house full of furkids. I am an Aquarian by birth, and although I am past sixty and slightly frayed around the edges, my fascination with this thing called life continues. Faith, family, and friends are important to me; so are honesty, trust, tolerance, compassion and kindness. I'm pretty up front about most things, so if you want to know something more about me, just ask! :-) You can also reach me by email and find me at my Facebook page.

  1. A lovely read, Josie. I have known you through blogging for one year, to be exact, yet I can confidently tick at your friendliness, helpfulness and affectionate nature, mentioned under the Aquarius sign. Hope we meet one day.🙂
    I used to be a great fan of Linda Goodman’s Zodiac books, while in high school. However, after nearly 20 years now, I hardly remember many traits mentioned in the book. I am a Scorpio 🙂
    Look forward to a great April of getting to know you even better.
    Best wishes…

  2. Hi fellow Aquarian! Like you I tried to fit in so as not to be thought too strange but honestly, I’ve given up on that now. And I like it much more. Happy A to Z ing.

  3. I am an Aries person. stubborn and sometimes fiery and always loyal. From your writings I have gotten to know you a bit and look forward to learning more about you, letter by letter. 😺

  4. Good for you for giving up trying to act “normal.” There’s nothing better than being you full out. And I’m looking forward to getting to know you more this April – how fun! I’m a Cancerian, all watery and lunar. I like to imagine myself as the sign’s Crab, not in temperament, but rather in my sideways approach to everything. It’s never a straight and narrow path for me.

  5. Leo here! And all I keep thinking of is that awesome song the dawning of the age of Aquarius! I always wanted to be an Aquarian just so I could sing that song!

  6. My Dad was an Aquarian too and we got along well. I am a Leo and I definitely fit the description, good and bad.
