Post I'm Irisiel, life in MAJOR flux =)

Hi folks!

I'm Irisiel. Coming out of a 2-year transformative black cocoon of grief after my big brother died too soon. An understatement to say that--while externally I held it together--I really did not handle it well.

Now that I'm reclaiming life, humbled and lost, for the very first time it's like "anything goes". Including embracing emotions. I've always been wound tight, locked down and logical. VIRGO, VIRGO RISING, and the Sun, Mercury, Uranus & Pluto in the 12th House!

And my chart is a bucket with Saturn in Pisces in the 5th House* opposite my Sun. So, extreme.

Happy to meet you and to learn more and maybe one day to help people as well.

*Some charts say 6th H.

members are given the designation "Senior Member"
after posting a certain number of comments
not that many

keep in mind that because ours is an astrological learning forum
where members practice astrological skills free
no one is paid therefore responses to threads
are often from members who are beginners like yourself
with little or no experience
keen to learn by practice
members are encouraged to discuss interpreting their own charts to learn by practice
we also have members with many years of astrological study completed
members have day jobs
and those of our members who are professionals
do not provide a complete professional reading for free


our ELECTIONAL AND EVENT ASTROLOGY BOARD
is at https://www.astrologyweekly.com/foru...isplay.php?f=6

https://www.astrologyweekly.com/foru...d.php?t=111980

these are instructions
HOW TO ATTACH A CHART
TO YOUR POST ON THE FORUM

https://horoscopes.astro-seek.com/traditional-astrology

MOBILE
1) Once you generate the chart image using your favourite website, copy the image address
2) Upload the image to Imgur using the following URL:

https://imgur.com/upload
3) Once the chart is uploaded to Imgur, click on 'Copy' or 'Embed Post'
4) Paste the Imgur image location to forum post

Quote:
DESKTOP
1) Once you generate the chart image using your favourite website, copy the image address
2) Click on the Attachment icon (if you don't see it, select 'Advanced' posting first)
3) New window will open, paste the image address, click Upload button, close the window

if that is for some reason not possible
then
another option is, after creating the natal chart
then save the chart to your desktop
then when on the thread click to edit your post
then scroll down to the Attach Files box
then click on Manage Attachments
and follow the instructions on the screen to upload your chart that way

some navigation tips:
all are welcome - whether a TRADITIONAL astrologer or a MODERNIST astrologer
and
our forum hosts BOTH perspectives ON SEPARATE BOARDS

i.e.
our MODERN BOARD completely excludes traditional astrological comment
and
our TRADITIONAL BOARD completely excludes Modernist astrological comment

i.e.
We have a modernist board AS WELL AS a traditional board
and then
the rest of our forum is composed of GENERAL ASTROLOGY THREADS

i.e.
whether a member is using Vedic astrology
Chinese astrology, Western Sidereal Astrology, Modernist Astrology Traditional Astrology
ALL perspectives are welcomed on our General Astrology board threads
and any member
may comment on our GENERAL ASTROLOGY BOARD using ANY astrological methodology

our HELP WITH FORUMS AND SUGGESTIONS board is at
https://www.astrologyweekly.com/foru...splay.php?f=22

to be clear then
our TRADITIONAL ASTROLOGY ONLY board
is at
http://www.astrologyweekly.com/forum...splay.php?f=92

For discussions on Traditional Astrology only.
Note: Typically, traditional astrology is defined as using techniques developed prior to 1700 by astrologers from the Hellenistic, Persian, Hebrew, and Renaissance eras.
Specifically it relies on Ptolemaic aspects sextile, trine, square, opposition and conjunction
and excludes modern planets Neptune, Uranus and Pluto
non-Ptolemaic aspects, as well as any asteroids.
The focus is less on what would be considered modern psychological chart interpretation
and more on prediction.
Members who wish to explore a combination of traditional and modern ideas
should feel free to start a new thread in an appropriate forum for further discussion.

our MODERNIST ASTROLOGY ONLY board
is at https://www.astrologyweekly.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=95
For discussions on Modern Astrology only.
Note: Typically, modern astrology is defined as using techniques developed around the late 1800s by Theosophists.
Specifically it relies on psychological, evolutionary, karmic, and non-western interpretation approaches
and includes Neptune, Uranus and Pluto
and non-Ptolemaic aspects.
The focus is more on psychological chart interpretation instead of prediction.

Re: I'm Irisiel, life in MAJOR flux =)

Thanks, JupiterAsc.

Ok, the deal with me & astrology: always prided myself on being a sceptic, externally. Logic-driven. Ravenclaw etc.

But I always knew beyond a doubt, in my younger days, that these natal charts were always spot-on, somehow.

So...I drifted away, lived my life, kind of wanted to see if I'd become what I was supposed to astrologically, but without any fore-knowledge to influence it.

Then I saw my 12th House burdens and said, Yup, here we are. But I don't want to be miserable and alone!

So, just like the 12th House says, the only way out is through. Isn't THAT the truth. Now I'm ready to stop fighting for my ego and actually start living my life.

Hello Irisiel! I can relate to your story because I was also extremely skeptical and logic-driven, and yet I started delving into astrology to recover from grief. Nice to meet you!

Hi Saltedegg! I hope you ARE recovering.

Yes, blocking out my whole intuitive side then doubling-down on that decision after my brother died was, I guess, self-protection, as it always has been. Yet I've always had strong intuitive, almost psychic feelings.

It's as if I'm cursed, Cassandra within myself: doomed by astrology and neurological glitches to have visions, never to be able to quite believe them.

Good luck, here! I'm not getting many direct responses yet, but still have been learning a lot.
