|Me with grapes my father grew and in the background my dad's orchids.|
I have always had a great fondness for orchids especially the Cymbidium variety. My father grew them and truly had a green thumb. I have tried to grow them, but always manage to either end up over watering them, under watering them or just giving them way too much love.
Today I came across an article about people born under the star sign Aquarius. My birthday is the 21st January so I am just on the cusp. My older sister has always referred to me as the big drip, yes she thinks she is so witty.
"The Orchid is the flower associated with Aquarius. It signifies the sense of responsibility and love wrapped in Aquarius people. The Orchid is a simple, yet attractive flower. It is considered to be the perfect flower to describe the personality of Aquarius. Aquarians have a different vision to look at things. Aquarians are romantic, faithful and loyal to people who matter to them. Aquarians grab the attention of others with their charm and inventive ways."
I do love the Orchid description part of my star sign, it makes me feel so much closer to my father. As far as being faithful and loyal I think we all are that, but I am realizing that in my case I am faithful and loyal to a fault. I have a very hard time distinguishing the difference between a person wanting to truly be within my inner circle to that of the person wanting to be a part of the circle until they have what they need and then happily move on to the next phase of their life.
For the past 23 years I have been so busy making sure that everyone else is watered, fed and loved that I have neglected my own inner orchid and now in my 47th year I find myself not the bearer of water, but the puddle.
