In downtown Manhattan’s Financial District a tried and true image that has traditionally been associated with the abundance of the stock market recently had another sculpture positioned in its immediate vicinity.
Not long ago, the 11 foot tall, 7100 lb. weighing bovine sculpture named “Charging Bull” was confronted by a 4.16 foot tall, 250 lb. weighing statue entitled “Fearless Girl”.
In stark contrast to the bulging bull sculpture that is welcoming albeit intimidating since it represents when the market is on an upswing and “bullish”, the likeness of the little girl is miniscule when viewed against the behemoth bovine’s massive proportions. Even with that being the bronze based case, the little lady will not be bulled over, as her bold sense of daring clearly indicates with her clench fisted stance of unabashed fearlessness.

The dichotomy of differences between the personal lives of Abraham Lincoln and his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, made them not only appear truly odd together as a couple, it must additionally be stated neither was the other’s first choice for a romantic partner.
Much like their opposing backgrounds, History has placed nearly every one of President Lincoln’s deeds through a predominantly positive lens, while dualistically the vast majority of his wife’s actions have been put through a filter that’s as unattractive as it is thoroughly negative.
Astrologically, the Lincolns’ historical personae reflect the inherently best and worst aspects of the signs each was born under.Read more "Abraham & Mary Todd Lincoln: Constancy in the Face of Dualistic Decimation"
