Rabbit Rabbit!

There is an old superstition that if you say "Rabbit Rabbit" when you wake up the first morning of a new month then you will have good lucky for the duration of the month. I meant to post this yesterday on the 1st but lets pretend today its March 1.

March houses my 3 and often 4 favorite days of the year. St Patricks Day, the first day of spring and my birthday! Often times Easter falls in the month of March as well. This month blows the other 11 out of the water in my world. I am happy the entire month of March, despite the fact that Savannah has second fall and the oak trees spawn sneeze inducing pollen all over everything. This is the month where flowers begin to bloom and new life is abundant. Plus I get to party for 2 weeks straight leading from St Pats to my Birthday.

This month is also starting my life back as a single woman. That didnt last long, Aries and Capricorns arent meant to be. I'm not really into astrology but i got to thinking about how much I am like my sign. Here is a description of what my sign's charecteristics are:

Aries are fire signs and those born under this element are regarded in astrology as adventurous, active and outgoing.  No matter what upheaval, challenge or triumph they confront - an Aries has a wonderful ability to bounce back. Their faith in life and the future remains untouched by hardship. Their gift is that they are always children at heart and the world is always a magical place for them.  Aries is regarded as the most physical sign and because of its Mar's rulership; it is also one of the most highly charged masculine energy signs in astrology. No wonder women born under Aries are forceful, dynamic and aggressive, and as a result these Aries women frequently find themselves with dilemmas surrounding their romantic relationships. For them, a man has to be a 'real man' to deal with an Aries woman, otherwise she intimidates him. Because of the male energy surrounding it, when a woman is born under Aries, it creates some of the most interesting women in the world, women who are adventurous, independent and have competitive natures. It also tends to make them very forthright.
But whether male or female, Aries people are 'doers' rather than 'talkers'. They are the impulsive, act first, ask questions or have doubts later, sign of the zodiac. That's why their lives are often filled with many dramas and sometimes even accidents! Aries people love challenges. In fact, if everything is running smoothly, they are quite capable of going out and doing something (sometimes quite foolish) to rock the boat. Aries love to race in where angels fear to tread. 
And there is my personality in a few paragraphs. So this is my month to shine. I'm going into it with optimism that great things will happen. Going with the rabbit theme for this post I should mention that I'm contemplating my first tattoo. I never had a desire to get one until my Dad passed away. We used to call him the "White Rabbit". He had white hair and was always late for an important date. he was very busy and was constantly running late to things. I also LOVE Alice in Wonderland and cant wait for the movie to come out...also in March! Here are the tattoos I'm thinking about. i dont know where to get them or which one. thoughts?
