My full name is Victoire Oceane Fontaine, which for any one who doesn't spek french is a real mouth full. Although no one calls me by my full name ever. Like they don't need to. Not even my mothers. She'll always leave out the the Oceane, the only one who does call me that, was my nanny, when she was super annoy with me, or when I wasn't listening to her because I was reading a book or something.
Victoire- Victoire is the french version of the English name Victoria. The name Victoria is a Latin baby name. In Latin the meaning of the name Victoria is: Victory; triumphant.
Oceane- Is also french, and really simply it just means ocean or sea. That much would be easy to tell. It's not hard
Fontaine- Derived from old French fontane "well". It was probably a nickname for a person living by a well, but I'm not sure that's what it actually means for my family. In any case, it's the name that we've had for a good number of generations.
Victoire was a name that my mother loved. She wanted a little girl, and when I was born, she steam rolled my dad into calling me Victoire. Though he honestly had no objections to the name, since it's french and also has english roots, just like he does. The second name was my Grandmother's name, and a name that has been passed down through the generations of the family to the first female of every generation. My dad's generation which is the side of the family the name comes from, didn't have any females, so this meant I was going to have the name no matter what. I don't use it too often, so I don't often have to worry about it. My surname Fontaine, is a name that's just a family name. I can't do anything about it. Short of changing my last name, but I don't think my dad would be too pleased if I actually did such a thing. He wouldn't be happy at all. That much I can assure you. I actually really love my name. Victoire sounds like quite an old name nowadays, but I think it suits me, and I think it sounds nice when I say it, or when people call it. It's a soft name really. And well, it's not the name most others have. My middle name means a lot less to me really. I don't care much for it, but since it's rarely used it doesn't bother me.
I dislike the shortening of my name. I hate the name Vicky, I think it sounds horrid, and really wouldn't suit me in the slightest. I think it would make me sound like a five year old. I could understand some calling me V, but aside from that, no variations of my name are ones that anyone is currently using. My nanny sometimes used to call me Athena, after the Greek goddess of Wisdom, Warfare and Divine intelligence. She used to say that I was wiser than my years, and I fought more for what I believed that anyone my age. She was also always calling me smart, so from that she every so often would call me Athena. It was never often, and only when I was feeling particularly down about myself. I don't think I'd really like anyone but her calling me that. So, I'd never tell anyone that it was my nickname.
Victoire has recently turned seventeen, she is now an adult in the magical world and is very happy about this fact, it opens so many doors to her that were possible before.
I was born on May 2nd, 2024. In the late hours of the day, in a hospital in the centre of Charleroi in Belgium. I was a few days before my actual due date, but was born a health size and weight, with a small mat of blonde hair at the top of my head. The doctors had believed I would be a boy, but they were wrong. My mother says I was the hardest one of my brothers and I to give birth to. Since it took close to 8 hours.
During her time at Hogwarts Victoire worked at Ollivanders, now as an adult she works in the ministry for magic in the department of International Magical Office of Law. During the 2047 election she volunteered on Claudia Holland's campaign.
Victoire married a long time partner Alexander Fontaine. They had been happily married for a good number of years. She loves hi dearly.
Victoire has two children, a girl born in July of 2045: apolline Fontaine and a boy born in February of 2048; Jean Paul Fontaine
Victoire's father is Patrice Fontaine, he was an EU politician who worked for the most part in Brussels. He left that job after failing to be reelected, and got a job teaching economics at the University of Melbourne. He was born in Charleroi, Belgium. But was raised for the most part in Brussels. His father was a large business owner, who had a small but substantial empire in the North part of Flanders in Belguim. Patrice is a muggle and for a very long time after receiving the letter about Hogwarts was distrustful of these magical school, and that Victoire could actually be a witch. Although he would concede that he doesn't spend enough time at home, or with Victoire to actually know. He's an incredibly smart man, who attended university in London, Studying at the London School of Economics where he received a master in Political Science and Economics and a doctorate in Economics. He married at the young age of 24 to Freija Leclercq, who was a lobbyist working Brussels for a Nordic oil company. After their marriage she worked under Patrice's father in the Fontaine company. Patrice is openly happier with his two sons than he is with Victoire. Patrice's mother was born in Belgrade, Serbia, but moved to Belgium to get married to his father. They had gone to University together. Patrice is the eldest son of his family, and has four younger brothers, all of whom hold positions in their father's company. Patrice is very close to all his brothers.
Victoire's mother is Freija Leclercq, a strong and driven business woman, who splits her time between the northern cities in Flanders and the headquarters in Charleroi. She has taken a temporary leave from her job to help settle the family into their new home in Melbourne. But is looking to expand the company out to Australia, and head the division there. Leaving the company in the capable hands of her husband's younger brother, second eldest of the brothers. She was brought up by her grandmother because her own parents died when she was five. They sent her and her siblings to private school outside of Ghent. Where Freija went on to study Law, with Business at university in Brussels. Continuing to work in Brussels until she got married to Patrice Fontaine. It wasn't a by chance encounter. Freija had seen him from afar on several occasions and had developed a small crush on him, and decided to ask him out. They got married when she was 24, and she took a job in her father-in-laws firm. Since it had excellent opportunities for her, and because she got along really well with him. Freija is a harsh and demanding woman who is very busy. She likes keeping busy and working. She's not as close to her two older sisters as she'd like to be. But she tries.
Victoire has two younger brothers, Louis-Philippe Henri, shows no signs of magic. He's a small boy and has like Victoire curly hair, though his is brown compared to her blonde. He is a very intelligent young boy, who has a keen eye for all things maths and sciences. He doesn't attend Hogwarts because he is a muggle but does attend Eton in England. He has since all his siblings but him are magical has decided that he wants to distance himself from them. He was born in January of 2026
The youngest of the family is Tholomyès Fontaine, showed signs of magic. He's a young boy who looks a lot like his mother more than anyone. Where both Victoire and Julien are a mixture of the pair, Tholomyès is like a male carbon copy of his mother, like she was at that age, Tholomyès is outlandish, impulsive and dramatic. He's very artistic and finds himself drawn to tragedy novels.
She also has a younger sister who was adopted into the family when Victoire was about 10, she loves her sister a lot, even though they aren't as close as she would like. Vénus Fontaine, can actually pass to be within Victoire's family, looking very similar to her youngest brother. She still attends school in Belgium, the sister school that Tholomyès and Louis-Philippe attended.
Victoire is close to all her siblings, she enjoys having Theo be magic with her, and can't wait for Venus to come to school with her.
Because of the fact that both her parents has a number of siblings, Victoire has a lot of extended family.
On the her father's side, she has four uncles, three married in aunts, and one married in uncle. The eldest of the children was Patrice, after that was Antoine, 39, was is married to Belgium woman from Chatelet. They have 2 girls, Clarisse and Sofia, 12 and 10 respectively. After that, is Vincent, 36, who is married to a German man who was born in Munich, they live in the German speaking area of Belgium with one adopted boy, who is named after Vincent husband, Klaus, who is 6 years old. After that are the non-identical twins Maarten and Stijn, 34. Maarten is the only one of the family not married, he is widowed, his wife not long after their son was born, lives in Chaleroi, the son was named Mathieu, and is 15, Stijn recently got engaged and will marry in 2035, to the mother of his three children, they currently live in Brussels. Lola, Hugo and Gabrielle, 6, 4 and 2 respectively.
Patrice's parents, Victoire's grandparents on this side are also currently still alive.
On her mothers side, she has three aunts, and three uncles married in. Her eldest sister, Olivia, 47, is in a civil partnership with her male partner, they live in Lille in France and have five children, Sofia, Jean, Jerome, Amadine and Flora, 19, 17, 15, 12, and 10 respectively. After Olivia is Roxanne, 45, who is married with three boys, currently living in Amsterdam, in The Netherlands, Anton, Michael and Petra, aged 12, 14, and 16 respectfully. The second yongest is Alyss, 43, who was unable to have her own children, but adopted three, one who was aged 15 when adopted and the other two when they were young children around 2 and 3, respectively. The eldest is called Anna, who is now 23. The other two, Charles who is now 6 and Axelle who is now 7.
Freija's parents died when she was five years old. They were mostly raised by their grandparents, Victoire's Great grandparents, of which both are dead.
Because of this recent move, the pets that they used to own were given away to other family members. Victoire used to own a small short eared cat, which was blonde in colour and was incredibly small. Victoire called it Kirk, after captain Kirk from Star Trek, because she had grown up watching both the old original series and the movies of her century. She was sad to leave her cat behind, but realised that it wouldn't be able to make the trip.
Muggleborn, Victoire is the first of her large family to have any magical blood. None of them even realised there was a magical world, and have found it very difficult to comprehend it. Victoire is very proud of herself, being the first witch of her family. She feels this will mean that she will do better than all the others. She is very proud of herself.
THOUGHTS ON BLOOD STATUS
Since this is the first time that Victoire has ever come into contact with the magical world she would be incredibly surprised that there is such a problem with blood status, since she would believe that any person with any magical ability would in this world be treated with respect. She would fight for her muggleborn-ness and wouldn't ever think of it as a disadvantage. In fact, she'd believed and argue that being muggleborn means your magic is greater than those to whom it's passed down to. Since for others it was something supposed to happen, and for her, she got it by the sheer fact she was better, and stronger. Victoire would always be on the side that it was never in fact a fault, that purebloods have it all wrong.
Up until moving to Australia, Victoire was lived in Charleroi in the french-speaking area of Belgium, more commonly known as Wallonia.
She is currently living in Melbourne Australia, in a large house on the suburbs of the city, but still close enough for an ease commute to the university where her father teaches.
Victoire is mixed, her family is from Belgium as is she, but she was born in the french part of Belgium and does identify herself as more Wallonian than Belgian. Some of her family are however from the Flemish speaking area.
THE PLACE TO LIVE
Since moving to Australia, Victoire has gone through quite a change, so the place she'd loved to be is back home in Charleroi, her house there was older and had more character. Her room felt better, bigger and all her friends lived nearby. She was also close to her nanny who spent the most amount of time with her. And she misses her more than anything. She misses that more than anything, so Victoire would love to just go back.
FIRST HOME: A large, three floored house in the nice, rich area of Chaleroi. It was an old house built in the late 1800s, and renovated after being partially destroy during both wars. It has an old feel to it, but the interior is largely modern. Her bedroom is on the third floor, where her brother's bedrooms also are, they share one bathroom, and have a study area as well. Her parents mostly occupy the second floor, which is mostly open plan, and has a study for both of them, a large bedroom and bathroom. As well as room for exercise equipment. The bottom floor is the least used area of the house. It has a large kitchen and dining area, and a living area, all of which are rarely used. It has a small garden outside, due to the fact the house is fairly centre to the city.
Victoire is a little young at this point to know what she is. She's in a stage where she's not quite noticing how people look. She dresses very casually, and like a tom boy and doesn't pay attention to if she actually looks good. So, she doesn't pay attention to others either.
CURRENT RELATIONSHIP STATUS
Victoire is currently in a relationship with her classmate, Jean Snow. Due to his family however they haven't told anyone about the relationship and nor will they likely ever. She does however really enjoy the relationship and though it has it's issues she loves the intimacy and she does love him.
CRUSHES PAST AND PRESENT
Victoire has had a few crushes while in primary school. Though they were mostly just her liking from afar. She had a crush on a Spanish boy in her class who was only there for a year, and then also a crush on a girl who eventually just became her best friend, and all romantic feelings left.
While in 2nd year, she has developed a very small crush, on the fourth year student, Perseas. She doesn't fully realise that she has a crush on him, but she certain cares for him and cares about him dearly. She will feel the crush probably grow with time, but for now, it's a small crush on someone whose just shown her a lot of kindness since she arrived at Hogwarts.
Victoire has been enjoyed her first kiss which was with her first boyfriend, Jean Snow. Prior to that all she experienced were the usual the usual kiss on the cheek greeting which replaces the english handshake when meeting family members and friends. For Victoire this consists of three kisses, and not one as it is for some in the French speaking area of Belgium.
FIRST FRENCH KISS
Victoire has shared her first real kiss with Jean Snow, much within the same time frame as her first normal kiss, non-french kiss, and she will admit to really loving how nice his lips are on hers.
During her time at school she dated Jean Snow, until just after Avie Mitchell's death
THE FIRST TIME

When I was a kid ,
i used to buy and sell gravity ,
Victoire takes after her father in having blonde curly hair. Which his is now dyed a dark brown colour, and is too short for it to be noticeable that it is curly, Victoire has long, just below the shoulder length dirty blonde hair which sits in natural wavy curls. She has a fringe and her hair is generally very messy and falls into her eyes and face. She loves her hair, and doesn't like to keep it up too often. Though it can be a nightmare to wash. She will often keep it up with a lose clip, or ribbon. She doesn't brush it often, and lets it sort of just grow out. It's unruly, and her mother is always telling her to brush it, and keep it tidy, but never forces her, so Victoire keeps it as it is.
HAIR HAS BEEN DYED
Victoire loves the fact that she has blonde hair, and would never change it for anything in this world. She would considering dying the ends of it something like purple or blue. But nothing that would last too long. She loves her hair, and thinks of it as her best feature, so she would not be interested in losing it. It's also why she's always wary when cutting it. She doesn't want to ruin her hair, by messing up how it's suppose to look. She loves her natural hair, and would only really dye it to keep it that way when she's older.
Like most others in her family, Victoire has light blue eyes, which are a stark contrast to her fairly pale skin, which due to her location is very rarely tanned. Her eyes have a little yellow around the pupil, but this is only visible if someone is close to her. She likes her eyes, but it's a little annoying when her eyes are pretty much the same colour as everyone else in her family, so she's feeling less than unique.
As a young girl, Victoire's body can be describe as small and slim. She's shorter than most others, and will not very likely be overly tall. She has a thin build, just because of how young she is, and because she takes part, or took part in a number of school activities in her last school. Both athletic and non-athletic. She knows that she's going to grow over the next few years, but really has never been bothered by her appearance. She rarely makes an effort to make herself look good. And doesn't exercise for the sake of, rather simply because she enjoys it.
Aside from a few freckles around her body, Victoire lacks any real birthmarks. She has no freckles on her face, and they are few and far between. She is unlike both her brothers and her father who all have a good number of freckles and a couple of birth marks. Victoire has none. She feels a little cheat, since freckles and birth marks make a person more unique, but in the same way, where she also doesn't mind.
Victoire has never needed a blood transfusion, but her mother thought it was necessary for Victoire to be aware of her blood type, so now she knows it. Victoire did some reading on B- when she found out, because she knew very little about blood. Just so she could find out who she could donate blood to, and who could receive her blood. However, since she is so young and has a very small fear of needles it'll be a long time before she actually will think about donating.
Victoire is Right handed.
She is naturally right handed, like all the others in her family. She has incredibly neat hand writing, despite her young age. Unlike her younger brother whose writing is a mess. She can not write with her left hand, and while she has tried a number of times, struggles so much, and the writing itself is so awful, she just gives up. Preferring the right hand.
Since Victoire is from Belgium, her english isn't great. It has gotten hugely better in the past few months since moving to Australia, but she speaks with care, and a has a fairly light french accent when she speaks. She'll spend most her few months at Hogwarts carefully translating every sentence and word spoken to her. But, she worries she'll have more difficulties when pronouncing the spells.
I CAN SPEAK
As her mother was born and raised in Ghent, and her father in Chaleroi, Victoire is fluent in both French and Flemish. Her french is better than her Flemish, but that's due to the fact that she lives in the French speaking area of Belgium. Her Flemish however has no hint of french in it. She's also fairly fluent in English, learning most of it from her father, and various muggle tv shows that she would watch in both English and french. Her nanny spoke French with her most of the time. So, of the three French is her strongest language. Victoire also has some, but not much, knowledge of German, because of her cousins currently residing in the German-speaking area of Belgium. They don't visit often, but when they do, Victoire likes learning it from them. She also doesn't find it too hard, because of her Flemish.
I AM ALLERGIC TO
Victoire has a very slight allergy to chocolate, but this allergy has decreased in severity over the years, and the family doctor expects that in a few more years, it will be as if, Victoire was never allergic in the first place. Though he advises her to not over do it. Which is not a huge bother for Victoire, since she only really likes chocolate in small portions rather than large ones that then make her feel sickly, even without it become a reaction.
Victoire has a very casual style, she likes dressing in reds and blues. She will in the summer wear large oversized t-shirts and knee length socks. She wears knee high socks with skirts and shorts, and matches that with tank tops and large american style jerseys. She wears boots with jeans and boyish t-shirts. She dresses casually, and often messily. The few times that she'll wear a dress will be incredibly rarely. She's mostly wearing skinny jeans, or chinos that are dar blue in colour. She likes mixing colours, even if they shouldn't be mixed together. Her uniform is always worn messily, tie never done properly, socks higher than normal, shirt never tucked in, sleeves rolled up. Jumper or cardigan on top. In the summer, just wearing the school blazer, which is a few sizes to big for her. Her hair, always loosely tied back with either bows, or clips. Messy buns where barely any of the hair actually stays in the bun. Despite her slightly more casual style, Victoire does love skirts and often wear one. She doesn't really care about her appearance, so she'll wear whatever she likes. She'll wear things she found in must-go bins, or the high end stores. She'll mix and match. She thinks of fashion as just a way of picking the clothes she likes and wearing them. She doesn't care if she looks a mess, or if it doesn't fit her.

Victoire likes a lot of things, she enjoys reading a lot. She loves books about history, all parts of it. Anything and everything about history she loves reading about. She has a particular interest in civil wars and revolutions of any kind finding them truly fascinating, but also in ancient civilisations of Europe and Africa. Victoire loves learning, and she loves debating with people. She finds herself getting very passionate about things that might not otherwise interest her when it comes to debating. She likes the fact she's a muggleborn witch and would never think of that as a disadvantage, she loves wearing a uniform, as it takes away the time from her morning she'd have to dedicate to finding clean wearable clothes. Victoire loves singing and humming to herself. She hums when she reads, and she sings never very loudly, but enjoys it. She loves the colour red, and loves learning languages and comparing them. She loves playing with kids her age, and having fun. She also believes very strongly in working hard and has a strong belief in herself.
Victoire hates injustice, though at her young age she realises that whatever she might do wouldn't exactly do much. She hated when people are too stubborn and stuck in their ways to change their outlook, which is in part ironic, since Victoire is herself very stubborn. She dislikes people who are bullies, and will always fight against them. She hates mostly mundane things, like icy, cold weather which just isn't fun to be out in. She dislikes gardens that don't get properly looked after. She's not a huge fan of hospitals or places like that. She is very distrustful of people who say that they do not like history.
MY GOOD HABITS
Victoire has a number of good habits which could also double up as bad habits, depend on how you look at them. She's incredibly hard working, and works hard for everything. She loves reading, and will read at every possible moment. She reads anything and everything, rarely having any sort of filter for things. She's more advanced in her reading that most her age. She has a strong sense of self belief and knows that she can achieve anything if she works hard enough. Victoire is incredibly passionate about things, and will never really relent. She'll do excessive amount of research for even the smallest of tasks. She cares for her friends, and will put their needs in front of hers if she needs to. She's a natural leader, and she does enjoy getting her way, but instead of forcing people she'd rather change their minds.
MY BAD HABITS
Victoire is incredibly passionate, which also can make her at time incredibly stubborn, so she'll rarely back down from a fight. It makes her short at times, and ruthless. She doesn't expect everyone to share her views about things, but she'll be vocal about them, which isn't always a good thing for people. She can been overly excited about things that people might find silly, or pointless. She can at times over think things, or even jump to conclusions about certain things, though she tries to not. She's wary of things she doesn't know. She can at times appear to not entirely care for people, even though the opposite is try. Just when she gets passionate about something, it's the only thing she'll focus on. She can be a little harsh, and not very good with sensitivity of others, though she might try. Often she goes off in to little fantasies, which help nothing.
Since she is now going to magical school, her goals for life have somewhat changed. She wants to do the best she can in magic, prove that she can be a great witch, despite not being blessed with magical genes. She hopes that she'll be able to get everything that she wants from her education, and that at the end of it all, her parents might find the space to accept her for who she is, and not expect her to be something that she is not. She also hopes to make many friends while at school, and continue debating.
Victoire would be very taken aback by this, she would see her family all gone. Every single member of it gone. As much as Victoire would've rather her nanny be her mother, she is afraid of being alone, and would not be able to handle well, not having her parents, or her brothers, or her extend family. Without them, she isn't sure what her life would be like. She would see any, possibly all of them dead, leaving her completely alone in the world. In a place that she is unfamiliar with, completely alone would be her greatest fear.
Victoire would love a patronus, and it would most likely take the shape of lioness. Since they are the ones to fight, to get food, and to protect the young. Victoire fights for herself and others, she works to get everything and she is incredibly protective and loyal to her friends. Which is why her patronus would likely take that shape.
Getting her letter. She had never thought she could ever get such a thing. It had been completely unexpected. They had been sat around the dinning table, having been in Australia a week, so boxes were still arriving from Belgium, and an owl flew into the room, and the letter was dropped in front of Victoire. She opened it, and was in complete awe. She thought it was first a prank by her parents, but they knew nothing about it. It came with many instructions and well she couldn't believe that she was a witch and that she had the good fortune of such a thing. She would work hard, and this opportinuty for something great made her smile non-stop until she went to Hogwarts.
She has a dream in which it turns out that her nanny is actually her mother, and that her nanny, who is her mother is a sibling of her real biological mother. Meaning that she keeps her family, but she is also less of a disappointment to her actual parents. Knowing that her nanny would be proud of her no matter what.
Her worst day, was shortly after her younger brother was born, when she'd been about three. He was brought home, and Victoire had been left with a nanny who was new, and Victoire didn't know yet. Her parents ignored her as they brought home the child. She thought that they could no longer see or hear her. Since they weren't paying any attention to her. She felt angry at the new baby, incredibly upset about it. It wasn't that her parents had been neglectful toward her, just that they clearly preferred the new baby over her. She felt alone, and it was the worst feeling in the world to her. Which is always why she fears being alone. Though, it was also the day that her nanny told her that it would be alright, and that her younger sibling was bound to get more attention, that it was alright to be upset over it. Victoire cried herself to sleep that night, but eventually she came to understand what had happened.
Like with the boggart, Victoire's nightmare is her family being dead. Even more to that, for a long while growing up, after her brothers were born, she had a recurring nightmare where she disappeared and she was still there but no one could see or hear her, and more that, that her parents just didn't seem to notice anything was wrong about their lives, not even that Victoire wasn't there anymore.
She would admit that she'd terribly afraid of failing, of not being good at magic no matter how much she tried, and that she would never in the end help anyone. That she would be a failure.
MIRROR OF ERISED
She would imagine herself back in Chaleroi, with her nanny in their old house, learning magic together. As much as she loves the magic part, and honestly can't wait to be learning magic, Victoire misses her home and would like to go back. This will most likely change as Victoire grows up and develops her abilities in school.
The fresh smell of books, libraries and book stores. The smell of waffles and pancakes, lavender and lilies. She loves the smell of the sea, the salt air, fresh mint toothpaste and freshly brewed coffee.
I LOOK UP TO
Victoire looks up to her former nanny, and probably this will always be the person that she inspires to be like. Her nanny was at university while looking after Victoire, and dedicated her life to childcare and children's rights. To Victoire her nanny was a beautiful and kind woman, who is exactly what she'd love to be. The person who told her to fight, and stand up for herself. To never be ashamed of who she is, and always fight for herself and others even if it seems pointless. To be proud of her mixed heritage, and most proud of her french language. She showed Victoire how to do most things a mother taught their child. While reminding her that she could be whoever she wanted to be. Love whoever, dress however and never expect no for an answer. Victoire gets her passionate nature from her, and most of books are ones that she was bought by her. For Victoire there is no other person in her life whom she could look up to in such an easy fashion as she did with her nanny.
No one in her family is particularly religious, they never attended any form of religious building, and she was taught about religions in school, never at home, so for the most part having grown up with out it, she doesn't believe in anything. She doesn't think there is a God, but in part would sort of wish for it to be true. She doesn't pray, and she doesn't fight for others to get in the good books, Victoire believes it's just the right thing to do. She loves churches, the cathedrals and all that, and is respectful of those with religion, she is just not a believer.
Victoire is a Taurus, due to her birthday being May 2nd
Underneath their cool, calm and collected exterior, Taureans differ greatly from all the other signs of the zodiac. Taureans manage to discreetly stay apart from the crowd, even though they have a well-earned reputation for being socialisers. They will let others get close, but only so close as they want them. Some claim that trying to get your point across to a Taurean, should they not want to hear you, is rather similar to talking to the trees they simply won't budge. And, there is no such thing as an open-book Taurean. Their feelings, fears and desires often run far deeper than anyone around them would guess. Taureans are sometimes regarded as snobby, withdrawn, boring, or even sulky. The truth is, when Taureans manage to operate very adequately on their own form of automatic pilot, they can switch off from the world around them very efficiently. This is the sign that strives to create tomorrow in advance, rather than leave it to fate.
CELTIC ANIMAL ZODIAC
Strong, loving, stable and sure are the watchwords for the bulls of the Celtic lunar year. Cows/bulls are the ones you turn to when you need a shoulder to cry on, honest opinions and solid advice (particularly in relationships). These Celtic animal signs have bullseye intuition and can spot a liar from a mile away. Because they're highly intuitive, they can be misunderstood as moody or over emotional. They also come by stubborness honestly. They have excellent taste, and have a flair for classy elegance in fashion and home decor. These signs are as trustworthy as the day is long, and know how to keep a secret.
