Paper Poppies

I'm just wondering something...is it possible to change one's astrological sign? I could change my name or my body if I wanted, so why not my sign? The thing is, I'm a Sagittarius and it has suited me up until lately. Sag characteristics are: outgoing, party girl, loads of fun and spontaneous adventure. But now days, I'm turning into a Cancer... I think. I'm happiest and warmest when I'm at home, in the studio all day, eating a box of Fiddle Faddle for lunch, then put a fire in the fireplace, cook a cute dinner, do a little dancing in the kitchen, making paper flowers with my kittens, and then they go to bed and I listen to an old Beck CD while I clean up and finish up our NRC (no reason craft). I'm where I want to be. I feel so content that it's intoxicating. Definitely Cancer. Can I do that?
I'm very excited about this painting. More to come on that. In the photo below, I was making our paper flowers into a wreath but I really think it makes a nice halo for me to lay in and dream about Spring. Maybe in the Spring I'll want to be a Sagittarius again.

Don't know if it's possible to change your sign, but I do know that I'm a Leo and have felt like a Cancer for most of my life. When I looked it up years ago, I found out I was born on the cusp of the sign in a year where there was a shift in the sun in the sign so when that happens, a person takes on the characteristics of the preceding or following sign.....or something or another like that anyway. LOL!

I've been lurking on your blog for a couple of months now and I'm in total LOVE with your work! A couple of months back, someone commented that my work reminded them a little of yours, so I just had to go Google you. :D I'm so glad I did!!!! Your paintings are amazing!!!!!

Wow! When your hot your hot!
You probably don't intend to leave the grey background, but the skin tones of the figure in the black dress look amazing next the grey.
Maybe you have Cancer rising in your chart. What time were you born? Sienna is Aquarius with Gemini rising, and her mind and mouth are constantly going--simultaneously but unfortunately not synchronistically.

The best thing about the planets is that they are constantly moving. You might be a Cancer this week.

don't be defined by your sign. if you agreed to that, you would be saying there are only 12 kinds of people in the world.

i had a really addiction to paper flowers awhile ago and sat down and made like 100 and then thought...now what am i going to do with all these paper flowers??

I'm a Libra, not too sure what that means - i've always gone by my Chinese sign. What's yours?
Flowers=awesome! I think a spring halo it is. With all this snow and cold we need some flowers!
You're on a roll with your latest art, beautiful!
