In Chinese tradition, every year is dedicated to a particular animal. The 12 animals that are a part of this tradition are the Dragon, the Horse, the Monkey, the Rat, the Boar, the Rabbit, the Dog, the Rooster, the Ox, the Tiger, the Snake and the Ram. Each of these animals is believed to bestow its characteristics to individuals who are born in its year.

According to the Chinese astrology 2012 is the Year of the Dragon. And true to the animal's nature, the Year of the Dragon is expected to be marked with excitement, exhilaration, intensity and unpredictability. The drama and spirit of the dragon is expected to inject vitality, energy and unbridled enthusiasm which could easily lead individuals to throwing caution to the wind. It is especially important to take care this year, and avoid unnecessary risks that could lead to tragedy. (more…)

Christ, The 'Fish', The Vesica Pisces, and Astrology

abracad, · Categories: astrology, externally authored, jesus, spirituality

By Andrew Cort

(An Excerpt from THE PURPOSE OF RELIGION: Enlightenment, Meaning and Love in Jewish, Christian and Islamic Symbology)

When he had finished speaking he said to Simon,
“Put out into deep water and let down your nets for a catch.”
Simon answered, “Master, we have worked all night long
but have caught nothing. Yet if you say so,
I will let down the nets.”
When they had done this they had caught so many fish
that their nets were beginning to break. (Luke.5.4-6)

They signaled the other boat to come and help them, and soon both boats were filled with so many fish that they began to sink. Simon (he that obeys), who was also called Peter (a rock or stone), “fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, ‘Go away from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man.’ For he and all who were with him were amazed at the catch of fish that they had taken; and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee [abundance], who were partners with Simon.” They were afraid the boats would sink under the weight of all the fish, but Jesus said: “Do not be afraid; from now on, you will be catching people.” (more…)

Free Astrological Birth Chart

abracad, · Categories: astrology

The presence of an astrology column in most newspapers and magazines suggests just how many people regularly check their "stars". And yet these ubiquitous forecasts, each applying to a twelfth of the population, offer at best a gross generalization of what we might be currently experiencing.

A true astrological birth chart is unique to the individual, and represents a map of the heavens at the moment of birth. Its interpretation depends not just on the positions of the heavenly bodies as viewed from earth, but also on the angles (aspects) between them. A thorough interpretation reveals numerous indications, some of which are contradictory while others are reinforced. It is those indications supported by multiple chart features that suggest life's major trends. It is said that the most accurate interpretations rely not just on the planetary data, but also on the psychic attunement of the astrologer with the subject.

The New Zodiac

abracad, · Categories: astrology, externally authored

by Cinnamon Crow

When the media announced a new Zodiac system there was a huge uproar and much debate. The new system changed all the traditional Zodiac dates and even added another sign making thirteen signs in all. Many refuse to acknowledge the new system feeling that they fit perfectly within the traditional signs. Others seem to embrace the new sign arrangement. This split has caused much controversy and confusion. What was wrong with the old Zodiac? Why has it suddenly changed? The answer is that it hasn’t changed. Ophiuchus, the thirteenth sign is not newly discovered and the rearrangement of the Zodiac has been in place for almost two thousand years in the Eastern part of the world. This information is only new to the West. (more…)

Hindu Astrology and Karma

Author: alka kaushik

Though the Law of Karma is simply stated – ‘as you sow, so shall you reap’ – it is no simplistic, tit-for-tat theory, nor is it an arbitrary human creation. The Law of Karma is another name for Newton’s Third Law of Motion: ‘for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.’ As such, it is inherent in the universe’s structure: ‘The doctrine of karman and phala, act and fruit, is less a product of man’s sense of justice, that one shall be punished for what one has done, than a necessary consequence of the doctrine of the inherent efficacy of the acts’.
