My Turn with the Horoscope

Passion247000 started something! She referred us to a place where you can go to get a free astrological chart. Several members, including candy69sosweet have taken up the challenge to post their horoscope on their blogs. I’ve never believed in this stuff, but (as other bloggers remarked) the descriptions this site produces are uncannily accurate. I decided to post it today as a distraction from some of the other stuff I’m thinking about. I must say, my chart looks horribly lopsided; I wonder if that matters. I’ll underline the bits that seem particularly “ME.”

Rising Sign is in 07 Degrees Scorpio
You tend to be quiet, reserved, secretive and, at times, quite difficult to understand. Others notice your deep emotions and feelings and wonder how to draw you out. Stubborn and tough, you fight for any position you believe in. You are very resourceful and formidable when you become angered or upset about something. You enjoy living life at the cutting edge -- for you life must be experienced intensely and totally. Quite courageous, you are willing to take calculated risks. Easily hurt by others, you often strike back with bitter sarcasm. Sensitive and curious, you are concerned with the deeper mysteries of human psychology. Once you have become interested in any subject, you pursue it with total fanaticism.

Sun is in 08 Degrees Pisces
Extremely sensitive and emotional, you absorb the emotions of others (whether positive or negative) like a sponge. Emotionally vulnerable, you are easily upset and tend to cry readily. You are at your best when you can structure your environment in such a way that you are surrounded by positive, upbeat people. You are very helpful and understanding of the needs of others. Indeed, at times this can be a disadvantage, because you can be a sucker for anyone who needs help. Shy, dreamy, romantic in nature, you delight in retreating into your private fantasy world. Just be careful that you do not get lost in it! Trust your intuitions -- you may be quite psychic.

Moon is in 07 Degrees Virgo
You tend to be serious-minded but cheerful for the most part. You need tasks that engage both your mind and your hands. A careful worker, you enjoy making things. You are neat and orderly, and are very concerned with good health habits. Fastidious to the extreme, you cannot tolerate messes and will immediately clean them up. Reserved, shy, and very self-critical, you tend to be very hard on yourself. You usually will go out of your way to be helpful and useful to others. Practical, reliable, efficient and conservative, at times you are a bit of a prude. You are known to lead a simple, uncomplicated, frugal, methodical and unemotional lifestyle. You are devoted and caring to those you love.

Mercury is in 06 Degrees Pisces
Your ideas and thought processes do not come to you in an orderly, logical fashion. Instead, you think with your feelings or with images produced by your rich and fertile imagination. A very subjective person, your dreams and fantasies are very important to you. You trust your intuitions and tend to reject ideas that are based solely on logic. Very impressionable, you are sensitive to the moods and emotional states of those with whom you come into contact.

Venus is in 22 Degrees Aries
You are a very affectionate person but you hate to be tied down. You are more than willing to be the aggressor in initiating new relationships. Indeed, once you have set your sights on someone, you tend to pursue him or her ardently and passionately. But you do demand your own way in a relationship. Try to give in to your partner's needs and desires once in a while.

Mars is in 09 Degrees Aquarius
Your ideas and opinions are usually inventive and original, but sometimes they are merely eccentric and offbeat. You are altruistic -- you will work hard for the attainment of group goals, as long as they meet your high standards. You tend to resent traditional authority figures because you think that your ideas are better thought out and more valuable than theirs. Very idealistic, you are a rebel WITH a cause!

Jupiter is in 24 Degrees Virgo
You feel most expansive and at ease with yourself when you are doing something that you consider to be practical or useful. You enjoy being dutiful and carrying out responsibilities. You gladly take on the little tasks that others seem to want to avoid. At times, you carry things to extremes and feel guilty anytime you do something that you consider to be self-indulgent. While it is appropriate for you to demand little for yourself in life, try to loosen up once in a while -- go out on a fling and enjoy yourself!

Saturn is in 03 Degrees Cancer
The most important issue for you is emotional security. You have a deep and gnawing fear that those on whom you depend for emotional support will prove to be unreliable in the long run. When you are unloved and insecure, you distrust others and tend to feel isolated and lonely. Very cool, detached and objective, you can be counted on -- in situations that are inherently stressful or full of tension -- not to lose your self- control. That is a great and welcome gift at such times.

Uranus is in 09 Degrees Gemini
You, and your peer group as well, are attracted to new, unusual and revolutionary thoughts, ideas and lifestyles. You prefer abstract, idealistic solutions to practical, immediately useful answers. You delight in communications, the mass media, electronics, computers and all sorts of gadgetry.

Neptune is in 05 Degrees Libra.
You, and your entire generation, idealize all of the various experimental approaches to relationships -- including "living together", the formation of communes and collectives and the whole concept of "open" marriages. There is a stress on weakened commitments on an emotional and contractual level, but there are heightened expectations of the level of commitment and mutual support on the spiritual and metaphysical level.

Pluto is in 08 Degrees Leo
For your entire generation, this is a time when the relationship of the individual to society as a whole is being thoroughly re-examined. Major attempts will be made to find a balance between the need to be self-sufficient and the need to honor debts of social commitment.

N. Node is in 17 Degrees Cancer
You genuinely enjoy meeting other people, but you're at your best if you can do so from the comfort of your own home. You prefer others to come to you and tend to feel uncomfortable about leaving your home or neighborhood for any extended period of time. Those who do come in contact with you are struck by your caring and obliging nature -- you really make them feel at home. You form the closest ties, however, with members of your immediate family, especially your parents and children. You're at your best attending or organizing family reunions!

What I don't understand is: Why doesn't it mention my love of travel?

The "uncanny accurate" descriptions are nothing but
cunningly placed words so that one can interprete
them in a way that fits one's psychology. One then
gets the false impression that there is some reality
to that nonsense.

waggypolly replies on 8/26/2006 5:24 pm:

I think this is true. Plus the fact - as that site pointed out - some of the statements may be contradictory (because of planets moving around) and that leaves us the opportunity to notice the ones that work and ignore the others. Anyway it was quite fun underlining the bits I identified with, and the underlinings maybe a little revealing for my friends as well.

My sign is feces over penis rising. Means I don't believe in that crap. Frequently amazed by how many bright people do believe in astrology. I think if carrying a rock around in your pocket makes you happy, then by all means carry that rock. Just don't insist that I join you.

Gotta run now and see what else you've got in here...


waggypolly replies on 8/27/2006 9:49 am:

Yeah, well . . . . try reading all the post and all the comments . . . then see who you agree with.
You sound a tadge aggressive there. . . .

waggypolly replies on 8/29/2006 5:48 am:

Good heavens - who's insisting you do do anything? Who's inviting you to join?

Sure didn't intend to sound aggressive, and I did read all the post and all the comments. Saw that you basically agreed with interested's comment, right until you wrote about planets moving around and allowing us to choose what to believe. I agree, we all have the right to choose what to believe.

As for me, I'll continue to believe in real science which has established methods and requires continuous testing of new data so that yesterday's facts, if shown to be folly, are universally tossed aside while the new data is tested and the process continues ad infinitum. What a scientist feels, or choses to believe is never part of the process.

I recommend you read Carl Sagan's "A Candle in the Dark" which details the fallacy of psuedo science, like astrology. His conclusion was that astrology, numerology, etc were a path for the weak, or lazy mind. Wouldn't you agree that his is a more "aggressive" view point then I put forth in my comment?

I do enjoy reading your posts and hope you don't decide my presence is unwelcome.

I left a response for you here before, but it seems to have gone awol.

It was along the lines of remember to distinguish between objective truths and subjective truths and respect all them equally.
Plus, I always welcome intereaction with people of different views. Let's go on visiting, let's go on sharing our ideas. But lets, please, keep the talk respectful.

See ya soon, Polly.

waggypolly replies on 9/2/2006 6:00 pm:
This was my original response, just found it:

When I mentioned planets moving I was quoting, did you notice that?
I don't believe in any of it - objectively.
Subjectively, I think it's fascinating how we can find so many things to be mirrors for ourselves.
It's possible interested13563 would not reject that idea out of hand.
Scientists are sometimes in danger of ignoring subjective realities, I think.

You are welcome to visit, why would any thinking person be unwelcome?
Thanks for coming back.
Just pay me the compliment of not assuming that because I write about something I blindly believe in it.
