When I was younger, I had a fascination with zodiac signs and not a day went by for me without checking the daily horoscope on magazines and newspapers. What does the forecast say today? Will I meet a tall dark stranger and find true love? Will I finally stumble upon a huge fortune or fame? Well, I was young, and obviously knew very little about real life or how the accuracy of horoscope reading is more or less like probing around in the dark with a candle in your hand. But what I loved most about zodiac signs is how you are able to get to know yourself and your characteristics better. If you choose to believe it.

Pisces, for example, is symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions as the internal struggle of the soul within them. They are said to be extremely creative, sensitive, and artistic, with the tendency to be melancholic and imaginative. It is one of the most adaptive signs in the Zodiac. They are very intuitive, which as a result can be flexible and prosper in many different situations. Rather than taking an analytical approach to life, Pisces react to the feelings of others and can be very influential when they choose to be. They are very common as inventors, writers, musicians, painters, and dancers.
There. a whole paragraph that supposedly describes myself as a person. The only question is, should I believe it?

Well, between that period of time of my fascination with zodiac signs and my present life now, I have learned that life can only be as abstract and unpredictable as Jackson Pollock's dribbles of paint. No turn is certain, no change is definite. Like the weather, it chooses to display patterns and inconsistencies at the same time. With this in mind, I have chosen to see horoscope forecasts and zodiac signs simply as complimentary. Because no human is identical and no fortune is carved in stone.
So I surrender. To life and to the natural course of fate.
I hope February turns out to be sweet and magical to all of you. And since it's my favorite month of the year, I'll be giving 30% discount for every 3 purchases of art prints over at my shop!
God bless, Amalia, oxox
