Already Un Año- Can it be? Confession Time.

Today marks one year of Babushka's Baile, and Babushka's 1st birthday. Que queeee???  Si, a year ago, on August 3, 2011 BB was born.  You didn't really think all of Babushka could possibly be contained within one person did you?  JU SO FONII!!!  No no my Beautifuls, I am the-inner spirit-hippie soul-brain child of Sonia Guerra.  She's the chicken and I'm the egg; she came first.  Yeap, that makes her the old hen, La Gallina Vieja.  She says BB's "her to the nth degree", while I say she's BB on Valium!  Sonia's the vieja of the duo, but she does have her merit.  Read her poem We Are- de ves en cuando la vieja pega uno.

BB is a Leo.  As described by, of course I follow that, Leo is- 'The Lion is considered the king of the jungle, and likewise you Leos have an air of royalty about you. Some Leos even have hair resembling the thick mane of the Lion. But Lions are more than roar, for they are truly magnificent beasts. The Lioness proudly cares for the young, hunts and takes care of survival with relentless intent and ferocity, when needed. And proud are you Lions! Perhaps that's why you often choose work that puts you in the center of stage or in the spotlight of appreciation. '

Supposedly even when we don't try to be- so says My Little One.

But let us continue-

'Your motto might be "What you see is what you get." You tend to live your live straightforwardly and with a flair for drama. In fact, many Leos are attracted to the theater, the performing arts and public relations, for you truly understand the importance of putting on a good presentation.

Element: Fire

Fire signs are naturally warm. A fire gives light and heat, but it doesn't get depleted as others feed on its warmth. One candle can bring light to a room and it won't burn any faster if ten people read from its light than if there was only one. Fire doesn't plan it next move; it isn't logical. It simply is in the moment and will burn what fuel is available without judgment or forethought. For this reason fire signs can successfully rely on their intuition and survival instincts.

The fire of Leo is brilliant and intense. It's like the summer Sun that relentlessly shows up every day and whose heat continues to build over a period of time.

House: Fifth-5

The Fifth House is directly related to children, but it is also associated with any type of childlike activity. Even grown-ups need to play and this is a function of the Fifth House. In fact, all self-expression and creativity comes from this sector. Additionally, this is the House of Romantic Love. Truly, the Fifth House could be called the House of Enjoyment.

Key Planet: Sun- El Sol

The Sun is the undisputed King of our little planetary system. He is always in the center. Without his light, there would be no life here on earth. Although the Sun is 93 million miles distant, its warmth is the basis for all energy on Earth. Astrologically, the Sun represents our will. It's like the fuel that fires each of our individual furnaces and gives us cause to live. As the key planet of Leo, the Sun is the symbol of the self and from it stems all individuality and creativity.

Greatest Strength:

Your playful and loving nature'

Ok, Is this not BB to a T??
