I agree with this.Yes, I don't think the "ooposition/enemy" paradigm really works. There are other factors that are more prevalent.
I agree with this.
I find people with a lot of Aries energy quite 'hot' to handle. From the experience that I have gained, this constellation can make people feel that any and everything revolves around them, thus often trying to connect everything with their 'ownselves' somehow, the big 'I' factor (very first house/Aries like). It's almost like a self-created illusion of prominence (first-house trait) they seem to bask in, usually putting themselves in the forefront, whether it fits the bill or not. They also find it quite hard to take anything even close to criticism at all. Then there is the rashness and losing one's head quite soon, or when something might make them impulsively so angry that the rationale seems to get switched off. Sometimes, though, they realise later themselves that they 'threw' their rashness/anger at the other person without much forethought or considering the situation as a whole. At least, this has been my own personal pretty unpleasant experience.
Scorpio accentuation has also been too intense, controlling (it often has to be just their way) and sometimes a bit bitter to handle, but usually with some planets in Libra, there can be some balance of energies.
You know, I've stepped away from the computer for a few minutes and thought about the possible implications of this thread, the possible negative feelings it may produce. I've read and reread aquarius7000's comments and have applied them to myself, attempting to see mymyself from multiple angles.
Ultimately, what I've realized is that there is nothing inherently wrong with any astrological sign or planetary placement--even with those signs that irritate/frustrate us.
As a pisces it should be virgo for me, but I auctually admire their practicality, attention to detail, hard working and honest in the sense they exist in the real world.
It's interesting Natasha says she considers both pisces and virgo as enemies... ( the virgo habit of attention to detail as the enemy not virgo itself)
You consider pisces enemiees because they misunderstand your directness?... but also dislike the virgo trait of their attention to detail...? maybe it's because the virgo understands your directness and you don't like their answers?
Don't consider saggitarius enemies despite being preachy and a bit righteous
Quite right! Or else we would all have the same, well, enemy. Different people, different charts, different lives and different experiences; and Experiences is what we are trying to share here. Only, it needs a broad mind and outlook to understand that. For instance, it is Green Mist's experience that Aquarius is quite detached (which Aquarius can appear to be on the downside). I would not say that this is stereotypical just because I am an Aquarius myself (the world does not revolve around me and I am not the most important person, who is always being discussed the moment the word Aquarius pops up). EVERYONE is just as free to share his/her experiences like m-any other on this thread, and should not be picked on just because the sign they mention is anyone's Sun/Moon, etc sign. This is really frustrating because it almost seems instillng fear of arguments and robbing another member of his freedom to contribute his experiences. I just have to say this this time.What might be true for some (like my complete frustration with Mars in Cancer) may be perceived quite differently by another.
It is amazing how personally sometimes we take others' mere mention of one of the signs based on personal experiences (though they equally participate themselves with their own experiences), forgetting that we are not talking about them, just like they may say that they are not talking about someone else.
I actually kind of hate myself so the opposite would be lovely.
I've been researching the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator lately, and I've discovered that I am an Introversion-Intuition-Feeling-Perceiving (INFP) type. Feeling-Perceiving types tend to respond negatively to Thinking-Judging types when such types deliver criticism. It's not so much the criticism itself as the way in which it is delivered. INFP's in particular feel a strong need to give and receive positive feedback, and they are affected enormously by the environment in which they work.
Oh, quit your crying and do what you're told!

I am not aware of an "ignore" feature for threads (as there is one for members), but there is an 'unsubscribe' one. Choosing this will stop new-post notifications, if notiications are received by a member, ie. One might, nonetheless, feel tempted to click on that same unsubscribed thread the moment it appears in the 'New Posts' section, so only 'self-restraint' might help to detach oneself from a thread/topic.Perhaps there's a feature on the forums to help me. Can one choose to "ignore" certain threads like one may "ignore" a certain member?
So that no misunderstandings arise, esp towards the thread poster, I'd like to quickly clarify that I actually was not really saying that certain thread topics cause discontent, but more that some of our reactions might. Having said that, certainly certain topics are more controversial than others. Actually, one should be able to discuss just about any sign/house/planet/aspect (the necessary and basic ingredients of Astrolgy) with both their goods and esp bads without people taking anything personally.I don't like the idea of "ignoring" members, but aquarius7000 has a point that certain thread topics may only breed discontent.
