Talking Just someone curious really

Hello! I go with Ira, and been on and off interested in chart readings for a few years now.


Especially given my on and off interest in tarot too, added to really liking in general what archetypes are associated with what in what kind of personality system, I find the associations of Tarot with planets/zodiac pretty interesting too, though I can't claim any mastery over any of said topics.


I am mostly a lurker in general, really. I might chime in now and then, but it is not unusual for me to drop off the face of earth when it comes to forums, so we will see how that goes.


I also like to make fun of my own chart since as far as I can tell it is pretty fire heavy without much grounding elements as far as the planets/ascendant etc goes, but that's not really the place to talk about chart readings so I will save that for later lol


Fairly into fiction, quite interested in personal narratives and how the way people make create their own life story effects how they view events in their lives, which means I dabbled quite a bit into MBTI/Enneagram/Socionics as well, honestly I can probably claim far more experience with those than astrology, though I guess I can say that by now I at least have more than a bit vague idea what placed where means what, though don't quite have first hand chart reading experiences or someone I really talked much about such things with aside from reading posts from others.


Tl;dr hope to get along well with you all

Re: Just someone curious really

Whoa! That's so cool with the personal narratives! I've been talking about that a lot lately actually.

I read part of a book called 'The Happiness Hypothesis' and it mentions how writing about negative experiences can decrease sick days from work and improve health, etc. It wasn't so much writing about the experience, so much as integrating the experience as part of one's life narrative.

Anyway, nice to meet ya!

Re: Welcome! to Ira

@wilsontc Thanks 💜


@moonkat235 Ooh, never heard of that book before, but it does sound interesting. And yeah, I think there is also something to be said about how current trend of "you have to be constantly happy, you are constantly bombed in social media seeing everyone is always just happy, and if you can't live up to current Always Sunny And Happy image, you must have some mental condition than.... actually just being a human being", though of course there genuinely are people with actual mental health issues so I don't mean this as undermining anyone's issues so much as frustration over people not being allowed to be people, with their good and bad moments.



Will check if I can find that book out though, thank 💜

Hello Apeironstella welcome
https://horoscopes.astro-seek.com/traditional-astrology

https://www.astrologyweekly.com/foru...d.php?t=126556
http://penelope.uchicago.edu/Thayer/...os/1B*.html#19
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 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


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.
