LET'S TALK ABOUT ASTROLOGY, BABY.
I'm into it. Always been into it. I'm a libra, classically, textbook, good and bad, through and through. I have 3 planets in Scorpio which give me a scorp flavah. That is where my morbid fascinations come from.
Now I must give my schpiel to the unbelievers out there:
Unbeliever: Astrology is hogwash.
Teets: Jane, you ignorant slut.
Unbeliever: No really, how could it be true?
Teets: Do you hunt, fish, grow a garden, or work in a nursing home or hospital?
Unbeliever: Why yes! I do all of those things.
Teets: I know, because I looked at your natal chart earlier.
Actually, the point I'm making here is that hunters are aware that the moon affects the animals. Animals move, feed, become active, or not, along with the phases of the moon. The Farmer's Almanac is based on Astrology. Anyone who works with patients knows they get wacky when the moon is full.
Since the heavens obviously have these effects on the rest of nature, and you have seen these things yourself, why would you not accept that certain planetary aspects cause a tendency for certain circumstances and situations to occur? It is just plain common sense, and it is a part of nature.
Did you know that 100 years ago or so, doctors did not realize that handling dead or sick people and then going on to the next patient without washing their hands spreads disease? It was a big discovery. Big medical break through. It extended the human life expectancy when they finally figured out that nugget of knowledge.
Ancient people thought fire was magic. They thought childbirth was magic. They thought girls with naturally red hair or a birthmark were witches. "Magic", "nonsense", "of the devil", "dangerous", are all terms people through the ages have used to sum up that which they do not understand. There is nothing magical about Astrology. It is just nature.
Having said that... if anyone wants to share their birth data, I will tell you about yourself. I need your date of birth, where you were born, and what time you were born if possible. Some people don't know what time, but it is on your birth certificate. The time of birth will reveal your rising sign.
Proofrok, I have a VERY interesting thing about you which I will post in it's entirety iffn you're game. I have a birthday book that is always quite accurate about people, and you will be amazed. I don't know everything about you, but of the things I do know, the birthday book mentions a lot of stuff I recognize as true.
Now, I have a medstaff meeting to go to and later I'll check in to see what be happening.
