      Welcome to Astrology!

      This forum is for the general discussion of Western astrology. We may--in time--have a discussion area devoted to Eastern astrology, or this one may encompass certain facets of Eastern astrology as well. (We attempted to do so in the past, in the original community where this group began.) I would like to believe the late BV Raman was right in his effort to promote unity and better understandings between astrologers from the East and the West. We can certainly learn from each other!

      However, if the effort to achieve this common goal is met more by hostility from one side or the other than by a mutual love of learning, then such an effort would be to the detriment of the community. I'll make that decision as we go along. I believe in the members of this community, where we can share quality astrological knowledge as well as an eagerness to learn. This is what the message of Pluto is all about--for the good of all.

      Please remember we are a global community. English is used as a means of a common ground for communication. Nothing more. If you need help in translating your thoughts to English, please take time to do so. We'd really prefer not to delete your untranslated non-English posts.

      *SHORTHAND/SMS language posts ARE DELETED too.  Why? Easy! Because I can't understand them, and many others may not either!

      And finally take note: Spam is deleted, and spammers are banned.

      Astrology of the Unexpected Kind in the News

      Has a news item ever caught your eye enough to make you think, "Wow! That's classic for..." whatever transit might be happening? No, I don't mean the aspects we recognize as a pair of dynamics or even a Saturn return because we've seen a person's age. I'm talking about there being no obvious signs by age or even ongoing mundane aspects, no means of doing much of anything. Just enough to make you wonder, "Hmm...I'll bet this person had (such and such) going on in this house." If you still don't get it, take time to see my first post in this thread, and I'm sure you'll get it. And if you still don't, ask, and let's walk through it. It's a fun way to explore what you already know, what you didn't realize you knew, and the fun stuff that makes the world go 'round, even when it gets serious. Astrology works in our daily lives, and it has nothing to do with Sun sign astrology. I hope you'll join in on the fun. Meanwhile, please remember, no spam.

    • Cosmic Creations

      Cosmic Creations!

      Through the years, members of my communities have occasionally asked to post their poems, photography and other creations. In April 2015, a conversation with someone triggered the concept which has become Cosmic Creations!

      Subject areas of this community are: astrological, philosophical, metaphysical. Please ask if your creation covers another subject area. We can discuss it.

      Please post a copyright notice with your creation. If you post your copyright, there is less likelihood of someone making the effort to steal your work. The moment you've created this work is your date of copyright. ALT + 0169 will create the symbol ©. Put the year of creation and your name after the symbol for your copyright notice.  Why am I such a bug on it? Because removing the copyright to use a work as your own--or having it look like it's yours--is unethical. Theft of copyright can result in a lawsuit for infringement especially if you can proof it's yours. If you present the work as your own and it's not, that's plagiarism.

      That said, there's one more thing I'd like to say about the matter: No nudity, no profanity, no disrespect of the posters. These are their creations from the beauty of their minds. Give them the courtesy and respect they deserve.

      This site does not own the creations in this thread. They remain the property and copyright of each poster who has kindly given me the honor of presenting their works by their having used this site. I receive no money or personal benefit in exchange.

      This thread, as all areas of the site are, will be closely monitored to avoid spam. Spam will be deleted and the poster removed and banned.

      Thank you for the open-hearted generosity with which you've shared your work in Cosmic Creations!

      Namaste, I love you,

      Michelle

    • Scorpio!

      Welcome to Scorpio!

      Those of you who belonged to the Scorpio! community we had on Orkut will remember these words. Rest assured, the foundations of this forum will be holding most of the posts we were able to save from 2004 through when Scorpio! closed on Orkut. Here, we can pick up where we left off--and move forward with new topics as well.

      As we did on Orkut, this community will be based on Western astrology for Scorpios, not scorpions.

      We are global, so please take time to write in English. If you write in another language, kindly translate to English because untranslated non-English and shorthand/SMS language posts will be deleted as a courtesy to those who don't speak other languages.

      For those of you who speak in Hindi: आपका नाम अंग्रेजी भाषा मैं शुद्ध तरीके से लिखा होना चाहिए जो पढ़ने लायक हो. अंग्रेजी के अतेरिक्त किसी और भाषा मैं भाषांतर (translation) के बिना लिखी हुई या shorthand/sms मैं लिखी हुई चीज़ें बिना चेतावनी की मिटा दी जाएँगी

      No threads common to other communities. NO BIRTHDAY THREADS!

      GET INVOLVED. Try to be a positive contributing member.

      The 'new' original "Thread thread" vanished in 2007, but we have the new Thread thread in the forum.

      PLEASE READ: NO SPAM! WE DELETE SPAM AND BAN SPAMMERS.

      Please pay attention to community rules. They're simple. Thank you.

      Site News

      Periodically, we'll have changes on the site that may require your knowing something--like the creation of a new community, events that may be important for you to know (for example, when I was interviewed on April 6, 2015...there will more of those coming up, I've heard). So my geniuses behind the scenes, one of the other powers that be who do what they do so well or I will let you know in this community. That way you'll be sure to have an actual spot where you know you can find out what's going on.

      I'm not going to promise daily or weekly updates to this community, but you'll know what's happening as soon as we can let you know.

      Namaste, I love you.

    • Transits and Trends

      Transits and Trends

      Someone recently asked me to start writing the Sun sign transits, which those who know me know I tend to shudder in offering. On the other hand, there are mundane transits I can address, and while I still figure out how to address the request, this seems like the place to start.

      Just please do me the honors of not spamming, okay? Looking forward to your thoughts about whatever the mundane transits are as we're moving into them too.

      Namaste, I love you,

      Michelle
