Symbolism

Would your animal be a guide or a symbol of your personality or something else? I think it would act as a guide, reminding me of the things I cherish most---my loved ones, my dreams, my faith---but also encouraging me to be strong in the face of my struggles---to welcome change, to find joy in dark times, to stand firm when fear threatens to overwhelm me. Ha. I never really thought about it, but basically, my animal would be a lot like my dad.

What is your strongest positive trait? The word "true" shows up a lot when I list positive adjectives that describe me, and I'd say it's probably my most prevalent positive trait. To me, that encompasses the core of my character: honesty, loyalty, faith, honor, a constant drive to act and think and speak in accordance with my Self, not what outer influences might be pushing or pulling me to do or think or say.

What are your main goals in life? I'd love to be a published fantasy novelist, and someday I'd love to be married and have kids.

Optional: What is your birthdate (month and day only)? August 14

Optional: What is your Western Zodiac symbol and which trait fits you best?
Tropical Western Zodiac: Leo - loyalty/faithfulness
Sidereal Western Zodiac: Cancer - nurturing/protective

Are there any animals that do not fit you at all? No more than three. Alligator, Moose, Rabbit

I have considered Wolf but it might be a tad too aggressive, so forget it. :)
Swan, since it is graceful.
Elk, since it fits your overall application so beautifully.

Elk is a great fit. I'm also getting a bit of an Eagle vibe in the words you x'd :)
