celtic zodiac, or are you a tree or a star sign?

YEARS ago, I read about tree horoscopes in an evening paper, and then I didn´t keep the article. Every now and then, I´ve been looking for them, with no luck. Until today, when I stumbled upon one. And realized that I should´ve been searching for celtic zodiac instead... Well, now I´m keeping the link, so I won´t have to look no more.

Since I´m born in September, I´m a vine:

Or in a Swedish site I found, I´m a linden tree:
Lindpersoner är osjälviska. De bryr sig alltid om andra och deras bekymmer. De är väldigt bra på att ta hand om andra och är fantastiska föräldrar. Eftersom lindpersoner är så känsliga och hellre ger än tar lämpar de sig bättre för kreativa jobb än sociala. Det är viktigt att göra klart för dem redan i unga år att de måste vara sparsamma med sin energi.

Lindpersoners styrka är deras känsliga och delikata natur. Med sitt öppna sätt är de bra på att hörsamma personer i sin omgivning och att inbringa hopp i dem. De tror alltid på människans godhet.

Lindpersoners svaghet är deras mjukhet. De får ofta inte igenom sin vilja i svåra situationer. De flyr hellre in i sin inre värld. De löper dessutom risken att bli utnyttjade av mindre känsliga personer. Deras exakta sätt att tänka kan dock skydda dem.

Lindpersoner bokstavligen blomstrar i ett förhållande när de väl hittat en partner som förstår deras själ, är tolerant och ger dem mycket frihet. De skulle aldrig kunna stå ut i ett förhållande där den andra parten strävar efter dominans.

I don´t have the energy to translate, but in short: apparantly I´m caring, sensitive and creative. Well, the creative part is at least correct...

kawaii or goth? personality crisis!

I´ve got very schizofrenic taste. One one side, I love pink and sparkly and cute - kawaii, that is. On the other side, my taste is very gothic - black, victorian, vampires, heavy make up (but I don´t do the white face-red "blood"-black stripes in the corner of my mouth - not so pretty - I like pretty goth), sculls (I love sculls, they are the perfect shape I think). This gothic lolita Hello Kitty pretty much sums it up:


Japan is a very good place to turn to, either way. They have both the gothic stuff, and they are the home land of kawaii. I found, that I need to shop for new clothes. Somehow the all-black that was my closet a few years ago, has transformed into colour and prints. I need some black stuff! Is it the up coming fall that brings out the inner goth, or Halloween just around the corner? Or is it just me, missing the good times we had in my teens (when I was very goth and punk), thinking some black can send me back in time? But I think my mind is very goth, my prince charming would definately be a vampire, one of my dream careers is as a pathologist, and I still loves the Sisters of Mercy and the Cure. I just sent for a comic subscription, a Norwegian comic called Nemi, a girl that´s definately goth:


Maybe the closest thing I can get to show you how the inner me looks like. Most of the time, my outer me looks more like this:


But my skirts are a bit longer. I told you - schitzofrenic!

More great gothic stuff:
