Hi, everyone! :wave:

So, it's time for another photomanip contest! :eager:

The theme of this one is the zodiac. It is one often used; however, rather than just focusing on the star zodiac (Aries, Capricorn, Aquarius, etc.), I thought it would be interesting to incorporate other types of zodiacs. I have found pages that give information on some of the more well-known ones (however, you are welcome to dig as deep as you'd like and go further than the ones shown below):


Astrological zodiac: www.whats-your-sign.com/zodiac…
Chinese: www.whats-your-sign.com/Chines…
Celtic Tree: www.whats-your-sign.com/celtic…
Egyptian zodiac: www.astrologyoftheancients.com…

You are welcome to incorporate more than one zodiac into your entry (in fact, you're encouraged to!).
For example, I'm an Aquarius, born in the Year of the Dragon, and my Celtic Tree is Rowan - I could use all of those elements if I wished. Feel free to use less or more!

So according to the Egyptian Zodiac link you provided, I'm Amon Ra and Shu.

Both are accurate, and in addition, they both ALSO describe a fictional character I've been told I roleplay quite well as.

Rarity from My Little Pony : Friendship is Magic.

Looks like the stars really aligned well with me.

In addition, although I was born in 1985, I'm technically a Rat, which also lines up with the other zodiac descriptions.

I'm also an Aquarius, which fits, as does the Rowan tree for the Celtic zodiac.

As I said, everything lined up pretty much perfectly for me to roleplay as Rarity, which is funny, because when I roleplay as her, I just let her "take the reins", as it were. :giggle: Okay, the horse pun time is over.

Glad I took a look at the links, I found out stuff that I never would have expected. Mostly the Egyptian zodiac, as I knew the information about myself that the site provided.

I learned so much stuff myself digging through these links. :giggle: It is interesting how much the different zodiacs can fit an individual. I've been trying to learn as much as I can about the different ones; I find it all so fascinating.

This looks like a fascinating contest idea - I think I might actually quit being lazy and try making something. At the very least, I'm intrigued enough to do silly amounts of research into different zodiacs and other astrological traditions.

Wikipedia made it kinda easy for me when I found this list but now I have way too many tabs open because everything's interesting.
Emerald-Depths's avatar
I will definitely have to check out that list when I have more free time. I love learning about this stuff; it is indeed very interesting.

After the contest is over and judged then, remind me to send you some of the research I ended up doing. I've got a set of documents in my stash just from this project.

Hi, I would like to ask what you mean by your Celtic Tree is Rowan? I'm interested in knowing, because I have Irish on both side of my family.

I learned a little while back that there was something called Celtic Tree Astrology. It matches up birth dates with a specific type of tree, and it gives characteristics people are likely to have based on when they were born, much like the astrological zodiac. This link gives some background information as well as the windows of birth dates and the types of tree they pair up with: www.whats-your-sign.com/celtic… It's rather interesting.

I will be glad to give away a premium texture/glitter pack. I've got some new ones I'm working on.
Emerald-Depths's avatar
That would be amazing. :love: Which place would you like for that to go to?
Emerald-Depths's avatar
Okay, I added it. Thank you so much!
