Celtic Zodiac Sign:
March 18 -
Personality Introduction for This Celtic Animal Sign:
Greetings dear Fox! Your Celtic zodiac sign is one of sharp cunning and clever antics. -Ever heard of the term "crazy like a fox"? You may not be crazy, but you definitely appreciate cutting loose and having a little fun. You've got a bold personality too, so hobnobbing at a party is no problem for you. Your easy charm and smooth confidence wins people over. Furthermore, you tend to make friends easily. In short, you are likely a master in the social scene.
Now don't get me wrong. I know you foxy signs aren't all about fun and play. But it's an important part of your life. If you can't be yourself while laughing and living-out-loud, then you tend to get cranky, restless and bored. Not good for you, because you have a very active mind. When not focused in a healthy direction, your restlessness can make you miserable. You might even find yourself getting into trouble without meaning to - all because you've got the ho-hum, doldrums. No bones about it, fox signs need to stay active, engaged and stimulated.
When it comes to the Celtic zodiac sign of the fox, I love this quote by M.C. Escher: "My work is a game. A very serious game." When you're on the hunt for something you want, you'll happily work hard to reach your goal. You can be very serious when it comes to productivity, your work and your family responsibilities. But, if you can't incorporate play and/or pleasure in what you're doing - you tend to lose interest.
The red fox is particularly relevant for you, dear one. Why? Because of that vibrant hue. Red is the color of passion, zeal, excitement, energy. These are all cherished qualities you possess. You've got an enthusiasm that just doesn't know how to quit. New adventures, exciting new projects, promising ideas...you're all over them like green on a leaf. You can't wait to dive into the next big thing. I really admire this about you, foxy friend. If I had half your joie de vivre, I think all my circuits would explode. Seriously. You can be positively electric. But there's a downside. As mentioned, if your interest isn't engaged, then things can go all pear-shaped for you. If an idea or a project doesn't sustain your passion, you might just drop it and move onto the next thing. This isn't always a bad thing, but sometimes responsibilities need to be seen through. One of your biggest challenges is learning to be patient and have perseverance. In many cases, it takes time and plodding on to get something done. The trick for you is to keep your eye on the prize that initially got you so excited about a new venture. But you're a smart fox. You already know all this, so don't spend another minute worrying about it. ;)
Another great quality I admire about you is your ability to get your own way. I've never seen anything like it. Something about your charisma and optimism makes stuff magically happen for you. Truly remarkable. It may seem like magic to me, but in truth, you're a clever, clever beast. I'm certain the wheels in your head are turning to produce your best outcome. I'm also sure your wit and silver tongue goes a long way to opening doors for you. Then there's that easy self-confidence of yours. It's hard to say 'no' to a Celtic fox sign.
I want to take a moment to quantify that word: "self-serving". To most folks, that might seem like an unattractive quality. I beg to differ. It's not that you're selfish. Hardly. You are one of the most openhearted, generous signs of the Celtic zodiac. You're usually happy to lend a hand or give the shirt off your back to a pal in need. It's more that you absolutely know what's best for you. You know what you like, and you know what you want. What's more, you tend to be very bold in going about satisfying your expectations. Sometimes your self-serving actions might seem hurtful to others. You don't mean it that way. When it comes to obstacles, you tend to ignore them. That friendly advice, or unsolicited suggestions from a well-meaning colleague? Forget it. If you're mind is made up, no one can say anything to dissuade you. You usually have a very clear idea about how to get your needs met. Very little stands in your way in accomplishing your desires.
Those of you born under the Celtic animal sign fox are ruled by the fire element. What does that mean? It means you can be combustible. If something kindles you, watch out. You may ignite in interesting ways for your passion. Whether in love, work or wanted desire - you set your path on fire to keep your passion bright and alive. Fire is also a symbol of spirit and inspiration. As such, it wouldn't be surprising if faith plays a vital role in your life. You might have unique ideals about spirituality, but these concepts tend to fuel your direction in life. As far as inspiration goes...anything that 'flips your switch' or gets you excited is a huge source of inspiration for you.
The fox is governed by the planet Mars. The symbolic theme of Mars deals with assertion, audacity, sometimes even aggression. It's sometimes call the 'war' planet because of its connection with the war god Mars. Does this mean you can be war-like? Yep. Can you be competitive? Even combative? Absolutely. This isn't always a bad thing. You do well in positions of authority. In fact, you employ clever strategy and strong charisma in higher rank. This makes you an effective leader. It also makes you a force to be reckoned with. However, when your power is directed in unhealthy ways, you can come off as overbearing. Channeled rightly, you can be stunningly persuasive, successful and accomplished.
In Celtic myth and lore, the fox plays a role of soul-ferrier. In other words, the fox is kind of a vessel for souls who have passed from the earth into non-physical. This association comes from a Celtic myth about a young boy who sets off on a quest to heal his father of a fatal illness. On his journey, he finds a dead man. He is compelled to give the man a proper burial. With no money, and dwindling resources, the boy fears he might never find a cure for his dying father. Then suddenly, a white fox appears to the boy. The fox tells him exactly how and where to find the cure. The fox then admits he is the soul of the dead man the boy showed kindness to with his burial.
Ok - so that's a neat story, but what does it have to do with you? Three things. 1). You are more than who you think you are. You are a conduit for many different voices and personalities. Am I saying you're carrying around a bunch of dead people in your energy? No. Not exactly. I'm saying you have unique guidance from your ancestors, and/or from people you've shown kindness to. Listen within. Pay attention. Your path is charmed with guidance from beyond. 2). You have a predisposition to lead others to their most wanted treasure. You can facilitate great achievement for others by helping them find what they want. Keep this in mind. Just because other people's quest isn't yours - that doesn't mean it's not important (for you and them). 3). For you, it's all about the quest. You absolutely must have a higher path. Ideally, you should be set on an adventure with some kind of grandiose mission. In your noble pilgrimage, you will find yourself. Essentially, this is a life journey. There will be times you want to give up. Don't. Follow your zeal and passion. That's where you'll learn and grow the most.
