I'll be theming my ABC's after pagan-related terms and using pictures from previous posts with links.  Enjoy!

F - Familiars

Z - Zodiac
Here's some new information for you!

My Sun Sign
How I deal with the world.
I’m a Decan II Virgo, meaning I’m heavily practical, logical, stable, detail-oriented and a perfectionist.  My sense of duty means I enjoy helping others, but forget about myself in the most important of times.  I am picky and critical to a fault, not just with others but with myself most of all.  Like most Virgos, I’m extremely health conscious, a neat-freak and quite the worry wart.

My Moon Sign
How I deal with emotions.
My moon sign is also a Virgo.  This means that I sort emotions out by throwing myself at work, exercise and chores.  I can easily become extremely worried because I over-think things in stressful situations.  However, because I am logical and have a good memory, I usually can sort out a good outcome to any emotional situation.  I am resourceful, meaning I often succeed in impossible situations.  I am also efficient - so while I may be prone to being a worrywart, I also begin planning out a solution immediately.

My Rising Sign
How the world sees me and what roll I play.
My ascending sign is Aquarius.  I stand as an individual and, while curious and eager to learn, prefer to do so on my own.  I am very accepting of others, enjoying the company of people from all walks of life.  My dress can be somewhat quirky, reflecting my desire for individuality (two-toned hair anyone?).  I can also come off as a little standoffish and stubborn.

How I think.
Libra: I like to weigh all possible choices when making a decision, and would rather compromise than make waves.  I strongly dislike disagreements and go out of my way to make peace.

How I deal with other people.
Leo: I take friendships very seriously, becoming very loyal and attached to others who value my friendship.  I value respect above all else, so when respect is lost, the relationship is lost.

How I deal with conflict.
Aries: I am more comfortable in leadership positions, and delight in competition.  I see arguments as debate, which means I sometimes don’t realize that I’m offending someone, coming off as tactless.

Where I find luck.
Gemini: I do not believe in luck due to my logical, detached objectivity.  As in such, I prefer to learn and use reason to achieve anything in life.

Where I find work.
Sagittarius: I prefer to use skills in a practical fashion and look towards traditional, conservative lines of work, such as planning, administrating and organizing.  As an illustrator, I chose a more practical way of achieving success by taking commissions in design and offering entertainment through caricatures over painting my emotions and hoping to sell through galleries.

How I seek individuality.
Sagittarius: I, like many of those my age, are attracted to new, modern ideas, philosophies and religions.

My imagination and dreams.
Capricorn: I idealize work and practicality to attain achievable goals.

How I transform myself.
Scorpio: Through intense research, I will shed light on what was previously considered taboo or mysterious.

North Node
What needs to be developed.
Pisces: Because I seek out others who need my assistance and have a deep desire to help, I often forsake myself in the process.  I may also be taken advantage of in these types of relationships.
