Excusing what? Are you implying that the Bible says you should only care for fellow believers in light of Psalm 145:9, Proverbs 12:10 and Matthew 5:46-48 among host of other passages? Now not providing for your own is morally wrong in 1 Timothy 5:8 and all cultures I am familiar with, indeed one may say that such a preference is natural and biblical!

It's back to Saturn: If you don't work, and serve the elite, too bad for you. That's how "the Fittest" is now defined.

I meant that SOME avowed Christians are applying it only to their own version of "Christians". Does "your own", include all of humanity, just your own relatives, or even just those who Believe as you do?

Also, are animals other than humans included in "the least of these"?

Do you read the Bible as a whole, or are you building ideas on single paragraphs? Also he says the ''least of''. Can't twist those words like that.

Are you saying that it is sinful to care first for your family and relatives (1 Timothy 5:8), second for your neighbours (Matthew 25:40), third for your enemies (Matthew 5:46-48 - note that he doesn't say you should stop loving your neighbour), and fourth for animals (Proverbs 12:10) in a post-Fall, post-Flood world? Do you have children? You probably invested more in them than in feeding animals.

I'm saying just the opposite.

Christianity developed as a valiant attempt to counteract the bad effects of Saturnian rulership during this Age of tropical Capricorn. That's why it arose when the Age began. It also prophesises the end of Saturn's Age-rulership.

"That still small voice" can be compared to "that still hard-to-see planet" corresponding to the rulership of the Age of Aquarius.

Sorry to interrupt, but does a Taurus sun placement with a certain planet is a high likelihood for developing obesity in their lives? My own mom who is a Taurus is obese now at age 68, but she used to be a smoker and developed COPD (Lung disease).

You can't "interrupt" a Random Thoughts thread! It's random.

Most would say obesity is a genetic predisposition. Smoking does cut down on the urge to eat, and many who quit smoking gain a lot of weight.
Sun Taurus isn't necessarily self-indulgent. Where's her Jupiter in relation to her Sun?

COPD has a number of possible causes. Smoking is only one of them. Living and/or working around polluted air, especially petrochemical emissions, is a major cause.

Another question: what chart should I put up if I want to know about certain issues with people in new career/job. I assume it would be a career thread?

I don’t look up to him at all because he hasn’t exactly had to fight for anything in his life. His perspective is coming from within a life of extreme privilege and respect, which he didn’t have to earn. On a soul level, he will be a baby and personally quite immature. I do like he is protective of his Mum and that tragedy has taught him to question the establishment but plenty of children lose parents, are abandoned by the other parent and subsequently subjected to a life of abuse and poverty - no £2million pocket money, loving father and respect from everyone in sight. So he’s not exactly a hero and if I met him I would probably think he was extremely ignorant.
The statement from the Queen which said they will no longer use their royal titles was misleading. Although PH&MM will no longer use them, they have not been stripped of them legally. Maybe it’s a technicality so they can keep receiving funding for their security.

I feel Saturn Conj Pluto in Capricorn is a very bad combination. Saturn's both a slow mover, and is going to retro back towards Pluto again, later in the year, even after it separates Direct more than 5 degrees. It won't move closer to Pluto than 3 degrees, the next time though.

They are too fast to be used reliably with transits. Also they lack vast distance from the Earth. This is basic physics. A small child sitting at the end of a see-saw can exert a force greater than or equal to a much heavier child sitting closer to the center.

Diana, Princess of Walesí niece, Lady Kitty Diana Spencer, has now been reported to be endorsing a rival brand of milk in China.

She is extremely beautiful and elegant looking, just like the late Princess of Wales was - but she is endorsing the milk industry, which forcibly impregnates cows and also contributes to the murder of them, so I hope the cow species wonít mind if I refer to her as a cow. 🐮
