I just realized almost all my closest friends are Elegant Seal 华盖 people. Aloof, cool, unapproachable at first glance. Maybe that’s why we attract each other? Elegant Seal is a star of creative and alternative learning, also a star of metaphysics that denotes someone who enjoys (sometimes too much) thinking, pondering and to philosophize life’s complexities and intricacies. They are people who love their alone time and fiercely guard their own space. This is because they are eccentric creative thinkers whom by nature will never think like everyone else even if they tried to. Small talk never interests them, common social etiquette will never apply to them and they couldn’t care any less unless their livelihood depended on it, they might be forced to act normal for awhile and only awhile. Because if it takes too much effort, they rather be misunderstood. After all monetary gains and material possessions mean little to them and will never be their priority.
It’s funny how 1 star can go both ways, either you’re a dancer, writer, philosopher, musician, choreographer or you turn to religion, spirituality, alchemy, metaphysics hence a lot of metaphysician do have this in their charts as metaphysics is seen as eccentric back then. In rare occurrences, you can carry both sides equally well too!
Personality wise, apart from loving their space a bit too much they are lifelong learners, intelligent and mild tempered. They do carry an air of elegance which is easily misunderstood as arrogance or anti-social.
You’ve hit the jackpot if your wife is an Elegant Seal, as she will never question you and will give you all the freedom in the world as long as you don’t interrupt her pursuits. If the husband is an Elegant Seal however, generalizing that women need to be showered more attention, unless she is also another Elegant Seal, you’re in for some tough times explaining yourself, haha.
