The Dance

Two years ago I met a man who became my life. It was his tattoo “Ani Tsalagi” that gave us the opportunity to talk. It was 3 weeks into the log stacking, and Roger kept me mesmerized. He was tall, dark, handsome and could do everything on the log cabin from the ground up.
I researched Ani Tsalagi that evening. The next day as I was reviewing the construction plans, Roger walked over. I asked him if he was Cherokee. He told me he was half Cherokee and half French Canadian and then raised his eyebrows as if trying to get interested. Then he continued with “I’m 54 years old and on the cusp of Leo and Cancer.”
Well, my sarcastic self kicked into gear, and I asked “so are you Leo or Cancer most years?” He said he was Leo most years. I couldn’t resist, then I asked, “so what are you this year?” to which he replied, “I’m a Leo.” So I said, “well, I’m Aries and I’m Aries every year.”
So, ladies, is this the cheesiest pick-up line you’ve ever heard? And, the dance had begun . . .

While I don’t believe the moon and the stars rule our lives, it is interesting to read about the personality traits of the Zodiac signs. God is in control, but there is something about the Zodiac signs that make you go hmmmmm…..
I Googled Aries and Leo compatibility (only because Roger is predominantly a Leo and has some Cancer traits). We’ve read through these Google searches for humor but they are also eye-opening. Here is a summary of what we deal with and to be honest, it’s pretty spot-on!

Both Aries and Leo are Fire Signs – strong-willed, passionate, dynamic with a strong love of sportsmanship and competition. Both have a need to be in control. They have a strong admiration and respect for each other but they need to take turns in giving and taking orders. Both are proud and impatient. Leo likes to be adored (and doesn’t Roger fall into that category) and Aries gets easily bored and doesn’t want to provide admiration and compliments (ok, that describes me to a tee).

Aries is rules by the Planet Mars and Leo the Sun. The Sun is about the self while Mars is about aggressive energy. They are highly compatible and make a dynamite team. Aries may say things that are hurtful while Leo can be bossy and sulk. Oh, my . . . what a great way to describe the last 2 years.
The best part of the Aries/Leo relationship is the mutual admiration for each other. Aries is the initiator while Leo follows through. What a great way to describe building the log cabin and remodeling the house, Their mutual energy and passion makes for a dynamic relationship. (www.astrology.com)

I hope I didn’t offend anyone with my story. It’s just that sometimes it’s amusing to read about your personality traits between people who came together under formidable circumstances. Which is why I believe in Divine Intervention . . . God is in Control . . . or we would have never connected.

So after two years, the dance continues . . . turn up the music!
