Happy Chinese New Year

Seeing as how today is the Chinese New Year I decided to see what my sign is under their calendar. Turns out I am a metal dog. It's rather eerie how much of myself I see in the description I found on

METAL DOG Horoscope
Feb 10, 1910 to Jan 29, 1911
Feb 6, 1970 to Jan 26, 1971

Dog people are loyal and honest and obedient, guardians of the house at night. They can be counted on to keep secrets and for always doing the right thing. They can be emotionally distant and do not mix well in social gatherings where they are often seen as wallflowers. They do better with one-on-one relationships and find happiness in the happiness they bring to others, such as finding the most perfect gifts for their friends. While it is true that they have sharp tongues and are a bit stubborn and eccentric, in a work situation they tend to work very well with other people. What is more, they always seem to have money and make excellent leaders. Because of their high moral stance, they are inspiring beyond measure.

This one takes a very conservative approach to every aspect of life, somewhat coasting along looking at the scenery with dreams and goals unrealized but the spirit always fulfilled. Ferdinand the Bull is their Poster Boy; they always stop to smell the flowers. Nothing wrong with this, but it's important to find a balance so there aren't so many unfinished tasks. Ironically, they tend to be materialistic, but don't have the patience necessary to acquire big ticket items and major success is illusory. But like gypsies, they move with the wind, taking what comes, with noble chin held high, always finding in life a kind of beauty which does indeed sustain them very much. They make very good friends, loyal to the bone, always finding delightful ways to help others. Friends always know where they stand because of their directness and frank manner. The Love & Romance Department usually finds a very handsome male and a beautiful female, each incredibly attractive to the other and sincerity reigns in their communication. The Metal Dog doesn't like to take too many chances, preferring conservative and traditional ways of romance. Sometimes, they become virtual love slaves, a little too passive for their own good. Time to stand up and reclaim your individuality! Learn to be more pro-active!

Thanks to krystalatwork at Give Me Back My Five Bucks for the prompt to find out what I am and the link to tuvy's site for the information.

I certainly don't know that the "lots of money", "high moral standards" and "excellent leader" fit too well.

Same sign as you also, I found the 2nd paragraph to be pretty close...the lots of money aspect doesn't fit too well either, maybe later in life ;-)

This is so cool! I am an Aquarius, but didn't fit in here to the Metal Dog Horoscope.
Totally cool though!!

P.S. I'm sending you your interview questions soon!
