So i love it when Aries are unabashedly, brazenly, awesomely and officially just uber-Aries. Melanie, my first Aries subscriber, is very much in that mould…
I am an Aries. A girl-ram who likes hanging with my flock, driving red cars that have angry sounding exhausts and loud stereos. I like my eyebrows defined with a horn like up-kick to them, hell I even have horns. Yes true, my skull is not oval, I have these pointy bits in line with my ears that jut out at the top of my head. You really have to feel them. They’re surreal, but not, because they are real. A lot like LA.
When I left Oz for LA LA I wrote a farewell email to a work colleague saying “I’m off to Los Angeles and I’m hoping to find a place so crazy, I feel sane.” and now I’m here I do feel sane. But not because of LA’s craziness more because of LA’s Aries-ness. In this city I am not alone, I am amongst a sea of kindred sheep who’ve flocked here in hope of their dreams coming true. Active dreamers. LA is bold and flashy and often accused of being false, much like Aries are I feel.
But how can a someone who brags saying their Botox Doc is the best in town be false? If they said, “Oh Botox? No! I’m lucky I just have good genes” now that’d be false. This is the thing with LA. It doesn’t pretend. People come here chasing a dream and those that don’t make it have to ask themselves how hard they really wanted it in the first place. Dream chasing can be rough going. But when the going gets tough think like a ram, put your head down and charge.
One of my first nights in this city I sat looking out over the velvet black at the sprinkling of city lights that shone like precious gems and I asked “LA what have you got for me? Do I have what it takes?” LA replied “I don’t know, give it your best shot. I’m here – what more do you want from me” and I realized at that moment that LA brings nothing to no-one. LA is the stage and her props department is well stocked but anyone who comes here must be prepared to write their own script.
LA is Aries. Bold, open and non-judgemental. Eternally optimistic and ready to see action make dreams a reality.
I love LA.
Did you know the LAPD have an entire department dedicated to film shoots!? Only in LA, hey?
