Hey guys. I'm new here.

Hey... this is my first post. I'm not really big on forums, but thought that should come on here. I'm in pretty dire need of some help; and, am going through a particularly rough period of time in my life right now, and I don't have a place to talk about these issues with anybody. I got into astrology...heavily, only a few months back.
I'll get straight to the point. I need help, opinions, and advice. I'm facing a difficult situation in my life right now. Career, family, finances and relationships and my overall life are basically a complete mess, and in that order.
I am now having, and have always had problems with my family. Ok. Let me start again, with some background info. I had never believed in astrology before, and never took it seriously. I got into Masonry for awhile, a while back and read M&D. It had a pretty profound impact on me. It wasn't only until recently that I did; after some serious study and contemplating of my birth chart, that I started taking it seriously. I may be a fool. But it seems real, to me. And... I don't know what else to believe in.

And, I take it very seriously. Basically, the last few months had been spent digging deep into the astrology, learning the symbols, codes and how to read and interpret charts and aspects, etc. basically learning everything I can about astrology. I've taken it very seriously.
I've come to the realization the science of ancient times: is the only valid, true and withstanding system forever...Unless something revolutionary comes along.
I'm open to an interpretation of my charts. I'm pretty well versed in both of the Vedic and Eliptic systems of astrology, and believe in both of them, I think. I pretty much know what's going on with me overall.... but am always open to suggestions, insights and further advice. I'm under the impression that most of the ancients relied on the sidereal systems of astrology as reference for their charts and astrological interpretation. I'm talking ancient Egyptians, Babylonians, Chaldeans and Sumerians..
It wasn't until the Hellenization and the teachings of Ptolemy, that that changed.

My Chiron is in the tenth right now, as it's sitting in the tenth house conjunct with Lilith being aspected by Saturn and Ketu/ South Node in the third house..it depends on which system- but that's there. This has never been an easy area for me (career) and this is mainly what I'm seeking help with here, quite desperately... actually.
I've had struggles with this my entire life, and my father, and I'd say it's my life's pretty biggest obstacle and hurdle, by far. The other, being my family...and family relations.
And travel. Those three things. My Venus sits with my South node in the second house, dematerializing everything it touches and this makes my life hard. Rahu/N. Node in the 8th and 9th respectively give me an itch for travel and strange things, the occult, and foreign lands. Mars Uranus and Neptune sit in my fourth...you can guess how that goes.... also aspecting my tenth.

I guess, I'm just seeking a place to talk to others, give & gain feedback, and a place to discuss these things with someone. I felt pretty isolated, like I didn't have a place to go to, and talk about all of these things - with people that understood. That's basically why I'm here.
Thank you, and I'm looking forward to being a part of this astrological support community.
Thank you. Feel free to shoot me any questions* If you have any questions about my chart, birth details, location(s). Just ask me!
Thanks.

Re: Hey guys. I'm new here.

“Find a place inside where there's joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.”
― Joseph Campbell.

Brother, so your joy has been astrology.

You apologise calling yourself, "a fool," for not giving up. You apologise for having faith in some thing, any thing, any one.

But look and you will see you have a deep heart shown here in your last post, full of hope and faith and you stand in front of the world and have the faith and dignity to say you want life and happiness.

Your asking any one, any where, to talk to you about your happiness the same thing we all seek in the heart or already know and want you to feel.

You do not believe in giving up, you do not believe in despair, but your voice is pushing you to this feeling, asking you what is your bliss, your true joy. It is not found as you have everything already and it is falling apart you say?

So you came here, is this place part of your life? Your asking it to enter your life?


[Deleted off topic link - Moderator]

Your looking for people to share life with you here, to talk to you?

So your one of them now, give your chart your date and time and location.

Be warned a real person may read you, like a ghost they will enter your life and yet you can not see them.

Send your chart and speak to the forum that your soul pulled you toward and tell them what hurts you in life and for how long.

I am bad with the music but eventually your song will be played if you dont like the above, lol.

Yours always,
Eric. The Traveller.

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


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

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

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: Hey guys. I'm new here.

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

Just, wondering what's happened ..here???

Edit: I wrote it yesterday and it was there. Now..... it's just gone. It was there yesterday, I was kinda fuming mad but it edited that cussing words otherwise I would have edited it myself. Thanks.

guidlines are at the top of Introduce Yourself board
note that the guidelines state:
"Please do not post requests for astrological chart readings
or astrological advertisements here"
and so
having introduced yourself
then
commencing a thread on our Read My Chart board
is a good idea
