    • Energy Stuck In My Throat HELP! I haven’t really put much attention to my throat up until I had a sore throat. After some meditation I realized that I had a lot of emotions stirred up in my throat  I decided to work on opening my throat chakra and listened to a binaural beats throat chakra meditation music and hummed OMMMM to its frequency  All of a sudden my throat was shaking like crazy but I kept going. Woke up next day, throat has been constantly shaking, almost spasm like.  Its been this way for a month so I went to see a doctor and they ruled out any life threatening ailments so now I’m thinking I messed up somewhere doing this chakra opening thing What do I do plz help me!  
    • 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.
