Re: Your Astrology Weekly Screen Name

My username is athenian200, and it has been for quite a while. I chose it for several reasons. One is that I simply have a special appreciation for the ideals, mythology, politics, philosophy, and emergent sciences of ancient Athens, and my favorite goddess is Athena.

Another reason is that I was once part of a philosophical forum where many people were named things like Socrates, Eratosthenes, Nietzsche, Plato, or some other major philosopher. So, I decided that instead of choosing a big name from history, I'd simply paint myself as some random, forgotten Athenian that liked listening to their discourses and throwing their two cents in.

Adding the numbers to the end was also sort of a joke, based on the fact that having random numbers at the end of a highly desired name was popular back then. But it was done with an ironic twist, because just plain "Athenian" wasn't a highly popular name, and I chose an even number with significance to Athenian history, so it wasn't actually random (it came to my mind at the time randomly; I discovered the significance later).

So, it's ironic in comparison to reality, but also represents my ideal of a world in which philosophy and reason are as common an interest as sports or movies.

200 is:
  • The number of Athenians that died in the the first Persian war (compared with 6,000 Persians). This was thanks to the Phalanx formation their army used.

  • The number of Athenian ships constructed to defeat the Persians in the second Persian war, and proving the superiority of the Trireme ship design.

  • The minimum size of a jury for a private suit.

  • The number of years that the Athenian democracy lasted.

Re: Your Astrology Weekly Screen Name

I use my real name's latinized form, both my Ascendant and Sun Sign can be retrieved from it.

Hmmmmm? You're saying you're the best singer in the forum. And I love Christmas carols. I can't wait . . . . Actually, you are probably a double Sagittarius.

Ha. Fair enough. I assume that I am correct (hope).

It was based on a mixture of logic and intuition.

Here are the facts:
(1) Carolus is Latin for Carol, and your name is exactly what it means: singing. So that alone has no bearing on your sign. Unless it is a reference to Taurus, ruling the throat with its Venusian affinity. But I do not think so. It's too loose, too tangential an association.

(2) Optimus is similar to words such as optimum and optimal, obviously relating to that which is best, and I believe the word "opitmus" has some sort of aristocratic signification to it because it stems from the title Jupiter Optimus Maximus, the most important temple in Rome during the city's prominence. The title means: "Jupiter is the best and greatest." This leads to two sings: Sagittarius and Pisces

(3) You gave no additional hints to allow for a differentiation of the two zodiacal signs. But in modern rulership, Pisces is ruled by Neptune. Also, you have a lot of fire in you, which I could tell by your previous posting, especially in regard to your efforts at the gym. You also have the avatar of a Lion, also signifying your affinity to the element of fire. Since we have one factor, Jupiter, as the signification of your ascendant and Sun sign, and Jupiter is not exalted in Leo, but Cancer, I had the idea that you are a double Sagittarius.

Is this correct?

It is in fact the Latin form of the name Charles, closely linked to the meaning "king".

Quote:
The popularity of the name in continental Europe was due to the fame of Charles the Great (742-814), commonly known as Charlemagne, a king of the Franks who came to rule over most of Europe. It was subsequently borne by several Holy Roman Emperors, as well as kings of France, Spain, Portugal, Sweden and Hungary. The name did not become common in Britain until the 17th century when it was carried by the Stuart king Charles I. It had been introduced into the Stuart royal family by Mary Queen of Scots, who had been raised in France.
There you have it, a Leo Ascendant.

This part is most impressive and correct, Optimus is the name of Jupiter, ruler of my Sun Sign.

Argh! I knew I should have paid more attention to your avatar. I don't think you would have made it your avatar if it were merely your Moon sign. If you were an Eastern astrologer, then maybe, but . . . . oh well.

I think Charles came to mean "king" because of Charlemagne. Originally, it was a Germanic name (Karl) and meant "man."

Anyway, I shall settle for 50 percent correct.

Re: Your Astrology Weekly Screen Name

"Dioskouris" is a personal stylized spelling of the Greek "Dioscuri/Dioskouroi" -- "Sons of Zeus" or "God's Sons" (Dios and kouros (boys)). These sons are Castor and Pollux, who in Roman mythology are the twins "Gemini", my Sun sign.

Re: Your Astrology Weekly Screen Name

Well, by golly....

I didn't pick my name because it sounds like the name of a general from Space Wars, although I think there was a pirate named Blackbeard and there might have been a corporal named Grey. But I don't think he had a beard.

And I didn't pick the name because I smoked some ganga...at least I don't remember smoking any.

And I don't like black cats (the picture looks like a tabby) or calico cats, or even gingham dogs...so Pet Lover or Feline Fancier was out...although this forum sometimes reminds me of the gingham dog and the calico cat, who side by side on the table sat....But that's a long and bloody story. Rats! They fought the dogs and killed the cats.

I thought of using Leo Ledbetter, but then I realized that dyslexic guy would probably make a mess of it, and happily, I am not incontinent. So I jettisoned that one.

I shouldn't smoke so much of that ganga. I can't remember...What was the question?

Re: Your Astrology Weekly Screen Name

I came up with my screen name by switching the first letter of my last name with the last letter of my first name, then switching them back to their original places. Bet you guys never would've guessed I did that!

Re: Your Astrology Weekly Screen Name

I guess mine fits since its just my name(amber) and the Italian word for sun(sole). I'm Leo Asc. And in numerology I'm an 11 life path.

Re: Your Astrology Weekly Screen Name

Jesse Booth you had me going there. And greybeard that was a delightful non-answer.

I picked this name because it's fun to say, and it amuses me to use a mundane-but-still-uncommon word as a username, instead of one fraught with meaning and sentiment, or completely uninspired like johndoebirthyear, because no one expects that, right?

Actually it's the first word that popped into my head when I signed up.

I want to see what the stars have to say about me plus it reminded me of the title of John Green's book The Fault In Our Stars and the quote from the book, "My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations."
