Pisces is the twelfth Sign of the Zodiac, and it is also the final Sign in the Zodiacal cycle. Hence, this Sign brings together many of the characteristics of the eleven Signs that have come before it. Pisceans, however, are happiest keeping many of these qualities under wraps. These folks are selfless, spiritual and very focused on their inner journey. They also place great weight on what they are feeling. Yes, feelings define Pisceans, and it's not uncommon for them to feel their own burdens (and joys) as well as those of others. The intuition of the Pisces-born is highly-evolved. Many people associate Pisceans with dreams and secrets, and it's a fair association, since those born under this Sign feel comfortable in an illusory world.

It's a pair of Fish that represents Pisceans, a symbol which prompts others to suggest that these people 'go with the flow' and 'don't make waves.' Both of these labels are true, since Pisceans are fluid and easy-going, in keeping with the Mutable Quality assigned to this Sign. The fact that two fish (as opposed to one) represent the members of this Sign also speaks to the duality of Pisceans, their yin and yang sensibility. Pisceans alternate between reality and non-reality in keeping with their introspective natures; their voyage between consciousness and an unconscious dream state says much about their intuitive, almost psychic natures. For this reason, Pisceans can be hard to pin down, prompting some to call them the chameleons of the Zodiac. The Fish are happy to be considered hazy, since there's a certain sense of safety in that self-proclaimed netherworld. That said, they won't stay away for long, since one of their primary goals is to help others. Pisceans are compassionate, charitable and will quickly put the needs of others ahead of their own. It's this kind of self-sacrifice which keeps these folks going. The flip side to their giving natures is that oft-timid Fish are likely to be taken advantage of by less well-meaning souls.

Favorite pictures from Mexico trip

Some of my favorite pictures from Mexico

Moving to Dallas

While in Mexico during the last week of February, my co-workers found out that our office is closing and relocationing down to Dallas. A co-worker called me the day I got back. First, I freaked out. I have been thinking about finding new job but I wanted to be it on my terms. I calmed down a couple days later. Then I decided to entertain to idea of moving down to Dallas. Had the interview on April 2nd in Dallas. April 9th I received the job offer and accepted two days later. I have always wanted to move to Denver. I feel like moving to Dallas and working for 2 more years (I have been with the company for 4yrs) is my jumping board to Denver. Moving to Dallas, the company has a relocation package and other co-workers are moving down too. But moving to Denver will be all on me, no relocation package and no friends.

Texas is a HUGE state, maybe one weekend a month explore a different area/city of Texas. A co-worker at Northface recommended getting a part-time job at a store I like to make friends. Thinking about always joining some groups on I am not the type of person to sit home and watch TV. Thinking about finding an apartment near the White Rock Lake. Its 9 miles around. Ride my bike around after work. Also thinking about taking the bus or train into work everyday. It would be so nice not to drive!!

I cannot wait to start this adventure!!!
