I apologize for the lateness of this blog. Due to the fact that we are moving, I lost track of time. If it’s not in a moving box I seem to lose track of what I need to get done. But I guess, better late than never.

There are two types of oak people: the new moon, those born the first two weeks; and the full moon, those born the last two weeks of this time period. New moon personalities have a tendency to take financial risks, but have strong powers of leadership. Full moon personalities are more flamboyant and can be somewhat glory seekers. They are creative and generous of spirit, with a strong sense of survival. Both types have an inherent sense of self-sacrifice for those they care for.
Oak people are self-assured, wise, optimistic, nurturing, generous, helpful, playful, and intuitive. Because they have a tendency to be protective of others and have a special gift of strength, they are considered crusaders and champions for the underdog. Oak personalities have a deep respect for history and ancestry, and often become teachers. They are determined, self-motivated, enthusiastic, and responsible. The people of this sign have a high degree of personal magnetism. They attract and inspire others, are usually calm during a crisis, and have a great deal of integrity; therefore, they are natural leaders. They are also deeply philosophical, generous to friends; but are prone to exaggeration and can become overbearing and sometimes pompous. Oaks are drawn to demanding professions and usually hold positions of power; but have an innate sense of fair play. They enjoy confrontation and make formidable enemies. They set standards in love that are difficult to obtain, and place great importance on moral issues.
