Quest to discover a fellow lion

If I could tell you what it meant, there would be no point in dancing it

I am constantly looking for the reason why we bother. Why we exist. What the purpose is for me having to get up each day and commute two whole train stops across a large body of water to work, in order to afford to drink in the Orbit Bar with my gfs.

It is not an original quest or even a noble one anymore. In all honesty, the amount you are allowed to be introspective is inversely proportional to how old you are. Aren't 30 years olds supposed to be selfless, concerned about making house payments, putting food on the table and saving for retirement? I promise Mum, I will get around to it.

Until then, I'm looking for some kind of explanation with all the introspection I can gather. Now, those who know me well will know that my work ethic is pretty ok but when it comes to soul searching... I take the road most traveled (the one with potholes and cliff notes). Thus (oh yes, I slapped myself for using that word)... thus, I have decided to look for meaning in the stars. Do not worry, this is not one of my NASA faked the moon landing rants. Instead it's astrology!

I am a Leo. Apparently we are magnanimous, generous, hospitable, caring, warm, authoritative, active and open. Also hard-working, ambitious and enthusiastic, however we are prone to laziness and can often take "the easy way out". Sometimes known to be exuberant, extroverted, generous with a natural dramatic flair and very creative. They are typically very self-assured, and love taking center-stage in whatever arena they are in. Blah blah blah...

If you are a Leo too and do not identify with the bossy, lazy, bathes with own saliva and other kitty characteristics then please let me know. I need a good number of exceptions to the rule in order to render it defunct. I simply can not be 1/12 types of people. That's just so ENTJ!

Maybe the search just involves cutting down the options until there is but one truth.

The universe, they said, depended for its operation on the balance of four forces which they identified as charm, persuasion, uncertainty and bloody-mindedness.” - Terry Pratchett
