Born in the Year Of The Cat were you? Ah, the good fortune that must smile upon you! First off you luxuriate in the warm glow of your friends and their love for you. Yes, you do cultivate people, but are very choosy about those you give your time as well as your energy. You do have good taste so your friends are very suitable to your purposes. Since you love to entertain, your friends fit right into your life-style.
Being a Cat you don't wear your heart on your sleeve and usually keep your emotions to your self. Your life is well planned and your living quarters well-kept. Confrontation is not your cup of tea and your first instinct at the sign of trouble is putting distance between it and yourself. You can readily adapt yourself to most situations and so wonder why others aren't more adaptable. People may tend to think of you as timid or shy, but they should be aware of the considerable care you take to study situations in order to better control them. Wary might be the operating word here as in CAUTION.
