CHALLENGE: Double Zodiac
The sun, moon and stars have aligned across East and West this week to bring you a very auspicious challenge: the Double Zodiac!
You are challenged to combine your* Eastern Zodiac and Western Zodiac signs into a single** celestial being.
Example Birth Dates for inspiration:
Feb 3 2020: Water Rat (Rat, Aquarius)
