Hello all! Jargon is a great thing sometimes. I once had dinner with a group of total strangers - all into astrology. Conversation went like this: "(Something personal) ...but then, I do have saturn at 12 degrees Pisces"
"OMG! That's exactly the same place as my mercury."
"No wonder you haven't been saying much."
"I know. It all makes sense now. I have gem rising, and usually you can't shut me up."
"well, sorry. My saturn - he means well"
"I know what you're saying. Mine is at 7 sag, same as my husband's moon. Drives him crazy. He says I'm a nag. But I'm not."
"He sticks around though, doesn't he? Whatever he says, you make him feel safe"
"And with all that aquarius he has, that's no easy thing." etc. And everyone knows everything about everybody within twenty minutes. At least we think we do.
I've been looking at theoretical stars for over twenty years now. Sadly, I don't know everything about everybody at all. Talking about astrology can be a great way to cement prejudices and preconceptions, to pigeonhole people and experiences ("Well,what can you expect from a Leo?"). Or it can be a great way to navigate the vast skies of our lives, tease out issues, identify patterns, find richer and more creative ways to live and relate. So it's fun to visit a site like this and try to hear the specific as well as the general. Everyone has some valuable information to add about Aries, Taurus, the sun, the moon - whether they know it or not. IMHO. So here I am.
For those who like to know such things, Im a taurus, capricorn moon, cancer rising. Could you tell?
