Astrologically speaking anyway...

my first wife was `all earth` and it was just one long miserable `slog`
a 15 rounder...with both of us `still standing` at the end...
it wasn`t a split decision...it was a draw...

Yes,
it was just one of those long and drawn out `miserable earth/water slogs`

I never really liked her from start to finish...
i prefer a woman with `a bit of fire` in her...
(a woman that gives as good as she gets)

My ideal woman would have a lot of Scorpio in her and a Jupiter ascendant...
as i myself...well,
i can be a bit of a misery sometimes

....And your question is what?

Smile Re: It`s not right...

Me and her are both 9`s (and also both 36`s)
(never mind that for now)

It was a long and drawn out earth/water slog that went the full 15 rounds with both of us still standing at the end...
i probably got more shots in...
but forces beyond us either declared it a draw...

which is exactly what it was....

you know...
in the end..we `authenticated each other` and agreed to disagree...

that was as good as me and her could get really...
but i think we were both quite happy with it overall really...

We are more like old sparring patners really...or prehaps...very,very,very old friends...
there`s absolutely nothing in it really...

i`m probably the more exciting one though...

the `letter offer offer of fireworks`
but she is probably like...the recognized champion...

like i say...
i probably got more shots in over the 15 rounds...but they had to...
well..it was a draw...
that`s all there is to it really !!!!!

I dont think really he is introducing himself (is he?) I was just asking that instead of talking in riddles about someone he doesn't care about, making sweeping statements about earth signs and for the rest of the time just being evasive, I was suggesting he posted the charts.

I dont think it was just me thinking this, and I didnt say post in the 'introduce yourself'

Question Re: It`s not right...

yes but,water signs are evasive,aren`t they....
i am nore or less all water....
so i would be evasive,wouldn`t i...
i`ve also got moon on the ascendant and neptune in the first(both watery feminine planets)
so i would be evasive,wouldn`t i...

earth signs can be a little bit dull and predictable was all that i meant to say...
it wasn`t a sweeping statement or anything...

Earth signs are dull and predictable(boring)...
well,i think they are anyway....

if a person has too much of it in their charts,that is.....

I`ve given you enough informationm on her and i if you really want to know about it...

What do you want it...
spoon-feeding to you....???

Re: It`s not right...

What a way to justify your decisions...seriously...I am simply very surprised when you consider yourself the mature one when you really can't not accept responsibility for your actions and the only thing you can offer as an explanation is that signs just are that way...I mean seriously...is it only me that sees atrology been abused in this case?
Perhaps this could open your mind a bit,it's an interesting read:

You just keep on repeating yourself over and over again.

I have a Pisces Moon and I'm certainly not that way.

You are again bashing your ex-wife and Earth signs and it's awfully rude.

Also why not go to astro.com and do her chart and your chart yourself instead of having people look it up for you?

I wouldn't bother anymore nemisis/saturnian,

I see he failed to give birth times/places before, was this due to being a beginner or was it because he needs to hide and carry on with his ridiculous waffling about how destiny called him.
I looked up the charts (without houses - not supplied) there is no twin flame soul connections that are obvious with NN etc, even the basics are not there.

and OWL for your information,
yYou are the most boring person I have ever had the unfortunate experience to talk to - you are incoherent, and unsociable, if what you say about this women you actually mean, that you married her and didnt even like her...then I can only hope karma comes and shows you what it is like to be involved with a selfish moron like you - although Im assuming that you have been dumped many times in your life hence your dislike of women.

and just for the record OWL

I was stunned when I saw you were born in 1974, your social development and maturity is around 17

Re: It`s not right...

is it me or do cancerian sun's have this complaining about everthing personality?... (this is my cancerian chiron complaining )

lol i find my cancerian friends tend to be a bit too complaining... and a bit too impatient, especially with women... (can someone please please please hug them!) please!

other than that... nice to meet you "myowl"

wowzer! i want to correct my statement... i think cancerians tend to be toooo sensitive to everything... what astrodawn said would be numbing pain!

lol dude i am a little younger than you owl (1991) and i find it a bit brash complaining abt other signs... each and everyone is different.. each person has different needs.

For fire it is passion
For earth it is finding stability
For wind it is communicating
For water is is emotion

complaining about others and their ways is the way you are... but do understand that if you are complaining about your wife's signs there are other people that have same signs and it puts them in that category... try learning more about astrology before making assumptions like "earth signs are boring"

if you understand earth signs well you would have known that they have a very stable life, their jokes are dry (something a wet human wouldnt understand) so dont expect it to be funny for yourself, they are very trustworth (unlike a water sign due to their malleable nature), thing seem to be kept in simplicity (where in water things are blown way out of portion)... this should be added to your list of negative thoughts of earth signs...

and if you are going to complain try not to hurt other peoples feelings... everyone is just like you when it comes to being a part of a community...they all want to be felt needed and wanted we are here to collaborate ideas ...

just food for thought

for a man,i`m probably just a little bit fussy and there are not a lot of woman out there that i have met that have really `measured up`

I`ve nothing against earth signs really,i just think that they are a little bit dull and predictable(workman-like) prehaps...

i prefer the more emotional or fiery ones...

I`m mainly myself made up of water and a little bit of air...

I`m a scorpio rising ruled by pluto in libra in the 11th house...
which is empowering through relating in the realm of group endeavour...

Earth signs i`ve found can just be a little bit dull and predictable(workman-like) ...prehaps...

i personally dont have any earth signs in me...

you realise you say this in every post right? you're being very "predictable" yourself.

Quote:

^oh you do somewhere if it's not in your planets one of your houses is an earth sign and some of your asteroids could be earth signs.

having more than one element is good for you not bad. Iwouldn't be proud of having an overload of one element that's actually tougher and you're less balanced that way if you lack an element.

if you lack earth that's not a good thing.

you're not listening to anything anyone is telling you so after this post I am not replying anymore but everyone here is telling you to stop saying bad things about earth signs and your ex-wife yet that's alllll you keep on doing. I feel sorry for you honestly. I hope you learn to listen better to people and start learning about your chart more and how no sign is a bad sign and we all have each sign in us whether it's a small part or big part of us it's there.
You have earth in you Owl no matter how much you deny it.

Cool Re: It`s not right...

i do not have any earth in me...
i`m all water...
moon on the ascendant and neptune in the 1st(both watery feminine planets)

I know my chart in great detail...
I`m a mass of trines and sextiles and nice easy energy...
somebody that is always looking to go the easiest roiute and keep on pushng the line back...(making excuses for themself) etc

if i`m boring you,
it`s probably because i`m discussing earth signs.....
we can switch the subject any time for me...

I really don`t need to go and do my chart again,ok...
but i`ll tell u my stats

Asc Scorpio
Sun Leo
Moon Scorpio
Mercury Cancer
Venus Cancer
Mars Leo
Jupiter Pisces (the best one)
Saturn Cancer
Uranus Libra
Neptune Sagittarius
Pluto(chart ruler) in libra in the 11th
(empowering through relating in the realm of group endeavour)

Of course,
with all that water in there,there is lots of nice,easy,watery trines and sextiles and this is very true in that i am somebody that is always looking for the easy way out or a person that can spend their whole life `pushing the line back` and making excuses for myself...

I have no earth signs in my chart,but apparantly..or so i am told..i have strong Saturine influences..
(you know...old man Saturn..the planet of old age,wisdom and failure)

i think that`s maybe why i need a woman with jupiter on the ascendant probably...

Earth signs are ok,ok...!!!!!

i don`t need anybody to look up mine and hers chart for me...
She and i are in ancient Egypt together...

Astrology is a bit beneath me now really and it always was her,i think...

There is burning curiosity surrounding twinsouls....
and astrology is beneath me now really...

I certainly don`t need anybody to go and look up mine and hers birthchart as i would of said astrology was beneath both of us by now....

you should be very,very pleased that i am here at all....

(astrology is for `up and coming ones` isn`t it really)

if i`m going to be insulted on here,i`ll just f**k off...

Re: It`s not right...

***Each of your houses is a different sign you HAVE to have some earth houses and you know this. some of your houses are RULED by earth signs.***

You're not boring me you are upsetting me because you are being rude.

I don't even have that much earth in me myself but I am proud of the earth that I have because it keeps me grounded.

It'd be nice if you posted your actual chart though and not just list your planets so people can see your entire wheel.

water isn't "easy", water is ever changing, she is emotional, fluid, empathic, dreamy. and I am saying this as someone with a very strong pisces moon and two other water planets. there are so many good things and bad things about water. you can't put down all earth signs and act like all the other signs have nothing negative about them. earth is much more "easy" to have in a chart that a lot of water in my opinion.

ALL signs have negatives and positives ALL of them. one is never better than the other.

^you gotta stop saying things like this.

I really should stop posting here... so I am signing out.

Re: It`s not right...

wow I didnt see that last post until now...

ya okay I am done here.

if you don't like astrology leave.

no one is forcing you to be here.

if you're so "above" us all. which you're not.

your chart isn't more special than anyone elses.

You're not all water you have fire and air in your planets anyways.

I'm a Leo and I am truly insulted to know that you are one as well.

Have a nice life.

Re: It`s not right...

Marriage is an institution,... I personally believe if you love some one and they are ment to be with you then you shouldn't have to mary, because growing apart does happen. If you love some one let them go, if it comes back then you know. Meaning, what's ment to be is ment to be. If you let her go an come back later after some time apart or seein new people you might be stronger. In personal experience if you finally stop worrying about the problem so much and allow it to control your life the answer will appear and be heard

Cool Re: It`s not right...

look...
her and I are twinsouls...
(we were created together)
we are two halves of one whole...
we are two who have been,are now and always will be 1

here`s more on twinsouls from the expert
(old bag Goodman)

(bare with me)

A man and woman who are soul mates hardly need to speak the words "I love you",knowing as surely that they do that they must belong to each other whether in this present incarnation(lifetime)-or(due to karmic complications) at the end of many more centuries.
The words in the marriage ceremony "Those which God hath joined together...

look,
I can`t be bothered with this ...
(like a church sermon or something)
I`ll just cut to `the best bits`

No man can break the tie between twin-souls...nor can any other energy in the universe...
the force that created them is all-powerful and indestructable,
This kind of instant magnetic attraction is often called "love at first sight"...which is no accident of fate,but very real...

The crossing of their paths has been predestined on higher levels of awareness,
Certain spiritual energies are at work to bring about their meetings,as surely as the migration of birds and the return of comets are governed by a simlaer universal law
(karma)
When the time comes for twin-souls to incarnate,they are sent to earth...clothed in flesh through particular time-energy forces at the moment in earth time when certain planetary configurations create the proper conditions...
These time-energy forces are electro-magnetic in nature,yet more complex than this...
(even than me)

the old bag knew what she was on about when she was younger...

so...
do you agree or do you disagree ?????

Re: It`s not right...

Earth signs are not dull...because...You have to see the whole chart for a person just because they might have an Earth sign sun and Asc doesn't make them dull.It's a stupid generalisation when you see someone with earth that they are dull or when you see someone with fire you think they are energetic.
I know a girl who's a Gemini sun and an ARIES MOON that she's like she's bored and sleepy most of the time.You cannot really see that Aries moon.And her Rising is actually in Cancer.

As for myself I am made up of Earth and Water,no fire in me but many of my planets fall in the house of Aries.
And a note,it's also ignorant to say that water signs are malleable.Because they're not,only Pisces and actually Mutable signs,which consist of Pisces,Virgo,Sagittarius and Gemini.
Trusts me Scorpio is anything but malleable...Fixed signs aren't malleable.Those are some pretty basic things to know in astrology...

I myself am full of earth and it's funny cause whenever I ask people they assume I am an air sign.If you're prejudiced of course you'll see the sign's traits on the person when you obviously cannot see the character's personality as standalone.
I wonder if you even read the link I posted.

For you information...
Sun in Capricorn(1st house)
Moon in Scorpio(10th house)
Mercury in Capricorn(1st house)
Venus in Capricorn(1st house)
Mars in Capricorn(1st house)
Jupiter in Scorpio (10th house)
Saturn in Aquarius(2nd house)
Uranus in Capricorn(1st house)
Neptune in Capricorn(1st house)
Pluto in Scorpio(10th house)
N.Node in Sagittarius(11th house)
Capricorn Asc
Scorpio Mid-heaven

Re: It`s not right...

She's more watery than earthly...
The only Earth I see is her Venus...which also falls in her asc.
Her Sun sign and moon are in Water.Making her overly emotional...
And the other two planets I see in an earth sign are jupiter and pluto...which are generational.



I have like 6 planets in the 1st house all conjunct my Asc.
