Tealight Talks - "Zodiac" Part 1
Each month, the editors of Tealight Press interview each other with questions based on the months theme. For this months 'Tealight Talks', Matt interviews Sash on Tealight's topic for June, "Zodiac."
What’s your star sign, and do you feel it fits your personality?
I feel a great affinity with Aries. We're described as "passionate, motivated and confident, frustrated with exhausted details and unnecessary nuances" which... Yeah. Highly relatable!
On the opposite end, what’s a difference between your star sign and your personality?
Aries represents the singular spirit (as opposed to its opposite, Libra, which represents partnership) which means they can be selfish. I really try not to be selfish! I'm concerned with the wellbeing of others and am usually the one overthinking something I've done or said.
What’s your favourite myth?
I love Greek mythology; it's basically a universal experience of British primary school education that everyone had a Greek mythology module, and it always stuck with me. The gods and their tangled webs of relationships and conflicts is fascinating! I love the Three Sisters of Fate, Pandora's Box and the tale of Persephone and Hades.
Is there somebody with your star sign you look up to?
A ton of celebrities who I like are Aries! Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, Kristen Stewart... Also Leonardo Da Vinci and Vincent Van Gogh. I think I'm in good company!
After 50 years one of the Zodiac Killer’s cyphers has recently been fully solved - is there a particular mystery that you would love to be solved in your lifetime?
Apparently, there's one very unlikely industry which is the world's biggest buyer of glitter. It's a huge secret, and not something we would ever expect (according to this https://www.thecut.com/2018/12/who-is-the-mystery-glitter-buyer.html article). I've always wondered!
