    Is the universe sending this? I don't get it...

    I Love You Even Though... If given in jest, it should be no problem. If given honestly, needs closer examination. Has the weight and feel of a two edged sword and cuts both ways. Ut Oh. The expectations or hopes of the sender have not been met. Accepting less? The receiver is getting a sugar coated admonishment. Like a parent talking to a child. What is worse? I Love You In Spite... or is this about the same. ..... Chili in winter. Chilly in winter. Chile in winter. ..... Which do you prefer? I personally like the first. Chili is excellent to warmed you up in winter weather. Some good Italian or French bread. Maybe some grated cheese or sour cream if the mood strikes. Number 5 is alive.

    I hope Miss Swan includes recipes for vegan chili, vegan lasagna, vegan tamales and vegan enchiladas in her new cookbook. Never cared for eating desert.

    Perhaps you should try chocolate. Even those coin shaped ones. Look at the history of money. Once upon a time, even chocolate and coffee were considered a form of payment. Better than a rare collection of sharp swords.

    Widely accepted? Are we trying to sidestep with consensus? Can you answer the questions I asked? Six? Here's a few additional ones? Astronomy is used as a tool in astrology, but also has raised a lot of interesting questions that you appear to be having trouble with. Give me the earliest known accounts of an 'astrologer'? When were the outer planets, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto recognized in astrology? Should they really be included in astrology? I'm pretty sure the first accounts of the 'planets' (Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn) as we know them today were referenced as wandering stars; interesting because they behaved differently than the other stars when closely observed. IE. retrograde motion. Begin channeling..... So I can now declare using my own personalized method of 'debate' that there is no Uranus, Pluto or Neptune and such terms don't exist in astrology. For that matter. No longer shall the term planet be used in astrology. This I decree. Let us further get rid of the three dimensional nature of the skies above. After all, The earth is flat. No more right ascension and declination. No ecliptic or galactic equator. We are now home in 4000 BC. Oops can't use that either. It's may even be too early for the Gregorian calendar. End channeling... Now it the twentieth century again. Never heard of cusps. ..... Ever use Google, Dogpile, Duck Duck Go, Startpage, visit a library or a bookstore. Try them some time even if its just for amusement. There is a definition for cusp. Good to see you recognize house cusps and sign cusps. I have read that some astrologers are a little uneasy about the way sign cusp have been treated like an on off switch which doesn't seem natural. I'd agree with them on that. Just another note: The way that this stands out almost send a flag up that this is a 'starting point' for astrology; the first measurement recognized before all else historically speculating. That may be why it seems so arbitrary and unnatural, because it is. On the other hand house cusps are differently treated as a 'transition'. A two pole dimmer switch if you need an analogy. Let it go! OK you first. LOL.... I'm not the one discarding definitions. By the way, please fix your grammar and spelling as I know how important that is to you. Yes that was a jab. Refer to: throwing stones in one's own house. For FUN now. Lets throw a monkey wrench into the engines of astrological interpretation (a little cut and paste to save time): Precession and astrology The first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere was once marked by the zero point of the Zodiac. Astronomers call this the vernal equinox and it occurs as the ecliptic and celestial equator intersect on approximately March 21. Around 600 B.C., the zero point was in Aries and was called the "first point of Aries." The constellation Aries encompassed the first 30 degrees of the ecliptic; from 30 to 60 degrees was Taurus; from 60 to 90 degrees was Gemini; and so on for all 12 constellations of the Zodiac. Unbeknownst to the ancient astrologers, Earth continually wobbles around its axis in a 25,800-year cycle. This wobble — called precession — is caused by the gravitational attraction of the moon on Earth's equatorial bulge. Over the past two-and-a-half millennia, this wobble has caused the intersection point between the celestial equator and the ecliptic to move west along the ecliptic by 36 degrees, or almost exactly one-tenth of the way around, to the border of Pisces and Aquarius. This means that the signs have slipped one-tenth — or almost one whole month — of the way around the sky to the west, relative to the stars beyond. For instance, those born between March 21 and April 19 consider themselves to be Aries. Today, the sun is no longer within the constellation of Aries during much of that period. From March 11 to April 18, the sun is actually in the constellation of Pisces! Your 'real sign' The table below lists the dates when the sun is actually within the astronomical constellations of the Zodiac, according to modern constellation boundaries and corrected for precession (these dates can vary a day from year to year). You will most likely find that once precession is taken into account, your Zodiac sign is different. And if you were born between Nov. 29 and Dec. 17, your sign is actually one you never saw in the newspaper: you are an Ophiuchus! The ecliptic passes through the constellation of Ophiuchus after Scorpius. Check out your "real" zodiac sign, based on the sun's current path, and compare it to the date still used by astrologers (in parentheses): Capricorn — Jan. 20 to Feb. 16 (Dec. 23 to Jan. 21) Aquarius — Feb. 16 to March 11 (Jan. 22 to Feb. 20) Pisces — March 11 to April 18 (Feb. 21 to March 19) Aries — April 18 to May 13 (March 20 to April 20) Taurus — May 13 to June 21 (April 21 to May 21) Gemini — June 21 to July 20 (May 22 to June 22) Cancer — July 20 to Aug. 10 (June 23 to July 22) Leo — August 10 to Sept. 16 (July 23 to Aug. 22) Virgo — Sept. 16 to Oct. 30 (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Libra — Oct. 30 to Nov. 23 (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Scorpio — Nov. 23 to Nov. 29 (Oct. 23 to Nov. 22) Ophiuchus — Nov. 29 to Dec. 17 (not included in the Zodiac) Sagittarius — Dec. 17 to Jan. 20 (Nov. 23 to Dec. 22) The point of the table above is to point out some of the complexities relating the ecliptic to the constellation in the zodiac or rather when it misses them. Astrometrics is not easy. What is this anomoly? I learned astronomy early on. It was fun. So was my study of mythology while learning how some of the constellations were named and that eventually meandered over into astrology. By the way. I'm glad real astrology has adapted over time in response to to new discoveries and understandings. One day long after we are gone. In the distant future, one best guess by science is that the earth will be no more. The sun, sometimes call Sol, will become a red giant extending out to Mar's orbit. There would be no Mercury, Venus, Earth or Mars. Titan might be livable (that's a stretch). Imagine how that would change astrology. Where to even begin? A little scarier. What if in the future, mankind colonizes Mars and beyond. Born in space. Maybe not even in this solar system. How does astrology compensate, if it even exists any more? Deeper questions.

    Hey. I moved to Puerto Rico for a little bit but I'm back in North Carolina. I'd like to be friends too :) and with anyone else on this post too. I just started reading Teal's Anatomy of Loneliness book and it's really helpful.

    You may be right about that.. But where are you that has that kind of community density? California? Also, would you mind sharing which venues have you been searching through? (How you came across them?) I know that here where I am, there's a decent spiritual/Reiki community, but it's all by word of mouth..

    Astrology is influenced by Astronomy, it's not exactly Astronomy, or else it wouldn't have a separate field of study OR thread. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about in regards to cusps not existing in Astrology . Or you don't know. Seems to me like you are arguing the philosophy behind these 'rules'. I'd love to see at least one branch of astrology where they accept cusps. (Being Virgo & Leo at the same time.) Until then I'll assume It's pop astrology. You know where you also read about generalized predictions. As much as I'm aware you can be 29°33′21'' Cancer and still not a Leo. If we take it by it's rules, there is a point where it crosses into another sign. Never being at both. Majority of people weren't even born on such extreme cusps for it to matter in this case. Some people call themselves on a cusp even at some 25 degrees of a sign. In that case even if you have major doubts about precision of sign positions , it's too far for it to be a cusp . I simply clarify for the ones that wan't to study Astrology, that such cusps do not exist. and that is widely accepted among Astrologists. The only ''cusp'' I've heard of is a cusp between HOUSES, not SIGNS. And even then it's the ''line'' that is called cusp. Either in one house or the other. Never both at the same time. lol ''Cusps are the beginnings of the mundane houses. The cusp of the first house is the ascendant. Of the fourth, the Imum Coeli or the heaven’s bottom; the cusp of the seventh is the descendant, and of the temth, the midheaven. That is how houses are divided, by defining theirs cusps. Anything before the cusp, less than 5 degrees away from it, and in the same sign as the cusp is considered as part of the house.'' It seems to me that you went a full circle in learning about Astrology. OR you haven't really studied it in depth and that would explain why you have these arguments. I think it's enlightening to know about such things for anyone interested in it, and I offer just that. We all started somewhere. I used to think there are cusps too way back when. And for those interested in Humanistic/Psychological Astrology or doing research and anything else serious, I would think it's essential to first learn the rules of the game to then try and test it. This topic is good to discuss with experienced ones. But you saying that there are cusps for people new to traditional Astrology is just plainly misleading. The best method to refute something and decide if its true or not, is to first learn all the old existing information about it. And then try and refute it by questioning the rules. However new people won't have the chance to do that if they keep getting confusing and misleading information right from the start, and never get the chance to know the real information about the given subject. To then make up their minds about the validity of it. Let them learn incrementally, instead of jumping in with random personal theories about ASTROLOGY. (Not Astronomy, regardless how much it has influenced each other.) On a personal note, however, it does make me wonder how come there is this rule, and why (If we assume astrology influences us in an ''energetic'' way.) it's decided that such drastically different energies would stop influencing us at one certain point and from the next point - new ones would. Why would 29 degrees of Pisces would attribute me certain type of qualities while 0 degrees Aries would strictly attribute way different ones. (Talking about Natal Charts since the OP seem to have asked about personal ''cusps'', not Transits or Composites or many other types where the interpretation could be different.) Degrees change in a matter of hours/days for sun signs. Quicker for moon signs and so on. I wonder that because I still haven't studied in depth about that yet. That's a better question to ask. Why? Not if it is so. Because it has already been established. If the reason 'why it is so' isn't good enough then we can discuss the validity of it. The debate about the width of the orb is also present among Astrologers, so yes you're right about the part that it's based on a lot of interpretation. I still keep learning and I am open to the idea that it COULD be that these luminaries and cosmic bodies do influences us in some way. Although I do not accept it wholeheartedly without confirmation. By the way I'm still interested what theory you offer instead of this one? You yourself suggested to me that open minds do not discard other theories out of hand. I don't think you're here with enough knowledge of Astrology and just wish to share your knowledge about Astronomy instead (mainly personal insults and less of that knowledge you talk about so much.). I know sometimes it can be lonely in this world but there's no point in fighting windmills. Let it go.

    To so many people on the planet the definition of love is when people have an attitude towards us of "I love you even though..." That's the closest many of us can get to love - "I love you even though you're messed up"

    Pecos, thank you so much for your comment & advice. I really appreciate it!
  18. Casia

    @Angelica Minguez there’s no empowerment in knowing that if we don’t listen to our parents we will experience physical pain. That is classical conditioning to rear a child into thinking that the world is dangerous and ‘mum knows best’ and this applies to society and how we are expected to flock like good little sheep otherwise we will be made an example of. This is why no-one speaks out of line. Im at glass half full so I’m not going to get into this further. Ask Teal.

    It's both terrible two's and terrible three's. Certainly, practical explanations for behavior do exist beyond the realm of theory. But theory offers a general explanation for behavior without having to explain every instance. Aside from being a psychology buff, I'm a pragmatist at heart, myself. Theory is often only as good as its being able to be put to good use. But, in this case, there's been quite a lot of research done and children do begin to develop their ego's around 2 or 3. The classic example when children begin asserting themselves is that they learn to use the word, "no." It's more common knowledge than a statement anyone would care to refute. Of course, the explanation that it's "just a phase" is pretty darn pragmatic in itself. It's right up there with "walk it off." That's good advice for the parents when they're fed up with their kids, lol!

    Day 356 of 365 days 'What would someone who loves themselves do?' I've been having sex for 21 years now, and this whole time I've been telling myself I don't know what I'm doing. I'd almost always opt for the man to be on top, or do the bulk of the work. As I grow relatively more comfortable with my partner I'm reflecting on my behavior in prior relationships. I have been so caught up in pleasing him while worrying about what he thinks of my body that I haven't been able to relax enough to feel into what I want hardly at all. Most guys are circumcised and I dare say desensitized in comparison. Hard, swift, stabbing sex without clitoral contact doesn't get me anywhere. That's what I've been used to, and it's the strategy I've experienced when a man wants to get something done. As a woman I can't create that kind of in out, up down momentum on top, so I assumed I didn't know what I was doing. I'm just realizing when I listen to my body, and followed an instinctual movement of my hips, that actually gets us both somewhere. I've watched enough porn now, and looked into the website ohmygodyes.com that I can see women have a vast array of genital variations. What works for one may be total silence for another. Men need to be guided initially. If I don't tell him to the left, or lighter, he'll keep trying and may not get it. I'm left frustrated, yet relieved not to be on the spot, but he ends up feeling like he failed. It has turned into a sore spot in my relationships, over a simple lack of confidence in communication. How terrible am I if I guide him? I'm not a sex mistress, or a slut. I'm helping us both. It's a good thing I've dated men with strong ego's because they make it their personal mission to try and get me somewhere. It ends up with me having a hand, or rarely a face, between my legs until the mission is complete. It takes me 15 minutes just to get over the self consciousness of him seeing or smelling any part of me before I can relax into concentrating on a scene in my imagination. Then I realize that doesn't work, and focus on just feeling. 'Shit it's taking too long'; I'm back to that scene again combined with feeling. Finally I'm getting somewhere in violent pent up release. Why the hell am I saying this? I am worthy of pleasure even though I'm not a super model! Besides, by the time we have sex, or have for months, he already knows that fact along with every curve anyway. Also, the person I am with is beautiful flaws and all, and ideally he feels the same way about me. When I listen to my body, communicate, and am vulnerable enough to be open, memorable times with intense intimacy are made. The way I feel now is if I can't relax with a man, then I respect myself enough not to sleep with him.

      "When I listen to my body, communicate, and am vulnerable enough to be open, memorable times with intense intimacy are made."

      I agree and that is also one value of a long term committed relationship where both can be comfortable enough to ask and share!

    I can't wait to try this. thank you!

    Coconut butter is ground up whole coconuts (think like Peanut butter). Coconut oil has all the flesh & fiber removed. I'm wondering which of these she actually uses?? I think coconut butter would be much more appetizing! Will definitely make this for Christmas. Much love, xx

    Thank you @Angeldust I am at the point where I don't think much about it. I give when I feel I have what to give. And I don't give when I feel I don't have energy for it, instead I prefer to withdraw, sink into silence, read or just do something mundane. The world doesn't end if I leave things undone. It can wait and for the most part I don't feel bad for it. As to people who don't reciprocate, yes, I try to be selective here because there are individuals who are not worth it. Also are you talking about material or spiritual depletion? Material depletion can get extreme... Spiritual/ energetic depletion is very temporal and if you know some of the keys that are nessesary for your replenishment, then it rarely gets too bad, only when you have no one to push you up.

    Here you go old timer, I got you glasses for you .... "This is a thread about Astrology, not Astronomy." LOL Why is the date of birth AND location important? Does the sun take time to transit a point at the boundary between signs? Is it possible to be born at exactly the midpoint? If at this midpoint, which sign is your sun sign? Be aware that the sun is roughly 1/2° in width. At what point are you not under the influence of either sign? It's not my theory, but I understand the mechanics of the discussion. There is something called a cusp. How you or I interpret it is up for debate, but not the fact that it is a legitimate term used for discussion. Sticking your head in the sand and your fingers in your ears and chanting will not make it go away. I understand you appear to give birth cusps a weight of 0. That's fine. Astrology is sometime thought as entertainment. That's fine too. Each to his own, without the disrespect. I've always had an interest in mythology, astronomy, astrology and a fairly wide variety of subjects. There are a plethora of theories of how to interpret both the motion and placement of different heavenly bodies including asteroids, comets and supernovae (crab nebula). Happy interpreting, as that is all it is.
