Hello again

Hey people. I created an account here several months ago, but life sidetracked me and I've not been back since. I thought I'd reintroduce myself and try to be sociable.

My name's Nick. I'm a Libra. A pretty stereotypical, textbook Libra at that. Okay, maybe not THAT bad. haha. I do see a lot of the traits however. I'm friendly to the point of annoyance. I've never really met a stranger, nor do I stop talking for long. I'm stimulated first and foremost by the intellectual side of a person above all else. I can be flippant, indecisive and superficial (Hey, at least I admit this), but one thing I am is loyal to a fault. When I'm not working, you can pretty much count on me being there.


What else interesting about me... hmm. Well I was born in the Northeast of England, but raised primarily in the US, hence having lost my horrible Geordie accent. I work in finance (Not interesting, I know) and I lead a pretty normal life. Would love to get better acquainted with some of you that could teach me a thing or two about astrology.

Hi again all!

Re: Hello again

Thanks Tim. I appreciate that. Is this place usually a bit more active? Seems like this must be the slow period.

Re: Hello again

Hello Nick *shakes hand* Nice to meet you.

Loyalty and honesty is what I praise the most (along with mutual respect).
You didn't write it, but I can only guess that you're an honest person since you wrote the 'negative' traits of yourself/Libra.

So your account is older than mine, but I'd still like to welcome you.

Re: Hello again

Hello Haidee. Yes. I do tend to have foot in mouth syndrome. I blame that on my Sagittarius rising. It's sort of a contradiction, yet a nice balance to having a Libran sun.

Re: Hello again

Hey Nick,
How's it going? I'm Jack, pretty new here myself (and to astrology I suppose, less than a year but I've been curious and read quite a bit) so if you ever wanna chat feel free to shoot me a message.
I'm 23 and very Virgo, and my Gemini moon welcomes chat whenever it can get it.

Re: Hello again

Hey Jack and Pieta! Very cool to meet the both of you. Feel free to message me anytime you like as well. I know quite a few Virgos and get on well with them. Must be that Mercury-Venus chemistry, I suppose.

What are your charts like? I'll post mine, so that you can get an idea of who you're dealing with. haha

It can take awhile for people to get back to others on the Forum. Unlike Facebook, the Forum is not based on "instant response."

Following up,

Tim

Fair enough, Tim. It would be cool to see this site a little more active than it is. Everyone of you seems super nice.

Re: Hello again

Interesting chart, Jack. As an astro newbie, myself, I had to sort of guess around at some of your placements. If I'm reading that correctly, does that make you a Capricorn rising?

Re: Hello again

Ah okay, yeah Capricorn Rising.
So. I have the Sun, Jupiter and Mercury all tightly conjunct in Virgo, and Venus in Libra all in the 8th house (of sex, death and transformation or so I've heard haha). But I have Uranus and Neptune tightly conjunct my Ascendant - all Cap - in my first house (of self) where Saturn is in Aquarius too. 3 ominous planets all retrograde for extra punch, yay for me . My Gemini moon though is in the 4th house of home, and aggressive Mars clashes with passive, emotional Cancer in the 6th house of health, yikes. Like you, I have Pluto in Scorpio very close to my career point (Mid-Heaven) but for me Pluto is in the 9th house of the higher mind, whereas yours is in the 10th house of career and social status.
My south node ('comfort zone' approaches to life that I should move away from) sits between my Moon and Mars, in Gemini in the 5th house of personal creativity and love - so therefore my opposite north node that you can see in the chart that kinda looks like headphones (which suggests the 'non comfort-zone' approach to life that I should strive toward) is in Sagittarius in the 11th house of the collective experience. In other words, from what I've gathered so far I'd do well to move away from more self-fulfilling, scattered creative thinking and move toward finding more of place within the group experience and share my ideas.
Hope that wasn't too rambly :P

Re: Hello again

haha. Very cool, Jack. For someone who's relatively new to astrology, you sure seem to know what you're talking about.

I had to laugh a bit at "But I have Uranus and Neptune tightly conjunct my Ascendant". Sorry. Having a schoolboy moment here. I need to get serious.

As an astro beginner, I'm just now getting into houses and what roles they play in each placement. I went to the library and got a stack of astrology books that might as well be in Greek. I'm having a difficult time understanding a lot of it. I would have been better off with "Astrology for dummies", but I digress.

Maybe one of you would be kind enough to assert their astro knowledge on explaining my chart and what makes me tick. It would be interesting to see how I'm read and if it's accurate or not.
