I hadn't previously thought to find out what my hour was. Lessee.
Each "hour" is really a two-hour period centered on the even hours,
starting with Rat=midnight (covering 11PM to 1AM). I was born at
8:47 PM which would be the hour of the Dog. "Highly values justice,
fairness, principle." Yup. "Works hard to keep his friends for
fear of rejection." Not so much. "Tries to achieve high goals."
Definitely not. "Seldom takes risks; requires emotional support
and reassurance." True enough. "Good conversationalist." Ehh.
"Wide circle of friends." Not really.
