Who Am I?

JANUARY 30, 2011



Through the years I’ve existed on the Zodiac list as a Sagittarius, being born between November 23 and December 21.

Sagittarius is represented by Chiron, a mythical being called a centaur:  half-man (an archer)and  half-horse. The Sagittarius motto is “It is better to know how to learn than to know.”

Some of the Sagittarian traits are:

  • Seeking knowledge and wisdom, never tiring of the quest for what is yet to come.
  • An outgoing and joyful mood, which can become more sullen if the Sagittarian feels their wings have been clipped.
  • Not losing hope, even in a restrictive situation, is an inspirational perspective that leads the Sagittarian to their greatest success
  • Glossing over problems or avoiding difficult situations*

Well, that pretty much describes me! Or does it?

The news this week is that I fall under a different sign. And it creates a milieu for an identity crisis.

If I think I am experiencing an identity crisis simply due to a Zodiac change, I must consider what my new-found sister Darlene and her daughter Sara are experiencing.

Darlene’s perception of herself changed drastically when she read the data on the original birth certificate she accessed just two weeks ago. The information on her birth was surprising enough. But then she found she went from no family (her adoptive sibling and parents are deceased) to being one of twelve children…well, what an adjustment!

Not only that, Darlene’s Zodiac sign is now different, changing from Sagittarius to Ophiuchus.

The foundations of the ever-changing universe has realigned itself. And the foundations of Darlene’s life has realigned itself.

What a journey we are on! Never-ending surprises.

Many of which make us ask: Who am I?
