SparkPeople Astrologers Team Messageboard Members have the opportunity to share diet tips and astrological insights with other students of astrology. SparkPeople Astrologers Team Messageboard Hi - anyone here? Four years ago I lost a lot of weight, which I attributed to t Saturn crossing my ascendant. Like many, I started gaining it back once Saturn went into the first house. There is nothing auspicious in my chart connected to weight loss right now (and have Progressed Jupiter in 9th/Gemini eeks!) but I'm back anyway, with the hope that somehow I can override the stars on this one. <BR> <BR> Happy to find this group...please say hi! :-) Fri, 7 Nov 2014 22:02:00 EST Happy Thanksgiving. Did you notice that Thanksgiving comes during Sagittarius? Happy Jupiter is always wanting to share with others and have a party. How like Sag to invite all of his "almost" friends to have a great meal. He'll always work tomorrow and make more money. <BR> <BR> I love to see how the signs match up with the Holidays. For example, traditional "old man" Capricorn brings in the NEW YEAR after taking care of the last day of the year, and of course, the tradition of Christmas. Then Scorpio see... Tue, 26 Nov 2013 01:09:15 EST Having your purse stolen. The news featured a story about "SLIDERS" who stop next to your car at the gas station, slide out and get your door open while you are pumping gas and steal your purse, and get back in their car on the passenger side and the driver speeds off. LOCK YOUR DOOR and keep your purse with you when getting gas. Some people even left the purse in the car while they went into the gas station. A car drove up then and some guy stole the purse and was gone. Mon, 12 Aug 2013 17:32:00 EST The Birth of Prince George He was born July 22, 2013 at 4:24 PM in London. I found his chart interesting as his moon is opposite the Sun, which often shows the parents aren't getting along. Strange since they seem so happy together. His Sun in the 8th House of Scorpio seems to fit as it is "other people's money" he will inherit. Scorpio rising doesn't make for a "friendly" King, but with the time period, I can see that he needs to be protected, so I'm sure he will be less trusting of the public for his own safety. ... Sat, 27 Jul 2013 08:17:26 EST Jupiter on the Ascendant Hi all! New to the group, 5 years on Spark. Please add me as a friend if you'd like. <BR> <em>334</em> <BR> So, here's my deal. Jupiter has been transiting my first house - ascendant is 5 Gemini 59. Lots of great stuff happening in my life and I've been in a generally jovial mood. I've also put on many pounds since the beginning of the transit. Has anyone else personally noticed an expanding waistline during their Jupiter/1st house transit? I put on some weight 12 years ago, but this has... Thu, 28 Mar 2013 11:53:28 EST What do you think about 12/21/12? I don't think the end of the world will happen, but just wonder how it is in astrology? Fri, 7 Dec 2012 00:24:13 EST Saturn in Scorpio What a change now that Saturn is no longer in LIBRA. I had an awful 2 1/2 yrs while it was. Sun, 21 Oct 2012 22:26:57 EST Happy Mother's Day I have Saturn in Virgo in my fifth house, so being a mother has been a difficult thing for me, but I study astrology and deal with it. I also have Mars in Leo in my Fifth House so that is another issue. Mars really doesn't belong in the Fifth House. <em>334</em> Sun, 13 May 2012 08:18:51 EST Is there a part of your chart you don't resonate? Hi friends, <BR> <BR> Just curious if there is (or was) a part of your chart that you don't resonate with? Perhaps with life you've come to learn it and appreciate it? Or maybe not? <BR> <BR> For me, being so Piscean and 12th House emphasised (with Neptune on the Ascendant in the 1st!), I did not resonate with my Venus in Aries - romantically impulsive, lustful, etc... where descriptions I never, EVER resonated with. <BR> <BR> Understandably, it's a fact of life that if we have an over... Tue, 17 Jan 2012 16:12:46 EST 2012 - Uranus Pluto square Hi all! So, as you may know, Uranus will be making an exact square with Pluto this yr... in June, I believe. Sorry it's not off the top of my head, I believe they will be dancing quite a bit this year! Saturn will be moving into Scorpio (ruled by Pluto in Capricorn) so they are in mutual reception... very interesting! <BR> <BR> Uranus, the "Great Awakener" will be literally squaring off with Pluto, the "Great Destroyer" (yes harsh...) - in Aries and Capricorn to boot! <BR> <BR> The Great... Fri, 13 Jan 2012 14:11:33 EST Hello to the Spark Astro Family!! Hi there everyone! My name is Jasmin - glad to be a part of this team! <BR> <BR> My quick Spark story: I am 25 yrs old, just married in May of 2011 - I was 123 lb on my wedding day and about 2 weeks ago I was 140... yikes!! Understandably, it was a "celebratory year" due to wedding festivities.. and of course, simply not taking good care of myself! I am a vegetarian, I go vegan about 75% of the time. <BR> <BR> My quick Astro story: My journey with astrology and other spiritual paths ... Fri, 13 Jan 2012 13:53:14 EST Astrology Helped Me I was taught that the Bible says that astrology is damned, but it really says that the astrologers will be damned--I think because a lot of them use mainly the sun energies, with birth-chart progressions. <BR> <BR> Personally, I like generational astrology and North Node of the Moon. But, the biggest help that astrological studies has been for me is deeply recognizing the variances, and talents, and norms, and struggles that make people so individual. <em>3</em> <BR> <BR> Oh, edit, edit... Sun, 7 Aug 2011 02:48:20 EST Bright Blessings A newbie here!!! Who is interested in astrology and everyday life. I also use the Tarot. <BR> <BR> Looking forward to being a part of this group. Mon, 30 May 2011 13:11:33 EST I am also called Miss Aries Hi there, I was born 4/1/48. I think I was reborn when I had lapband surgery 2/2/10. I have lost 88 lbs so far. I loved Astrology so much in the 80's and the 90's. I never do it now because I had no one to talk to about it. I hope that I can find friends to talk to. Thanks. Sun, 29 May 2011 21:26:58 EST Prince William's marriage to Catherine. I did a general chart and it appears Leo rising was the time of the wedding, with the Taurus sun in the 10th House of Tradition and life before the public. The Leo rising certainly fits a KING and Leo and Taurus are both "Fixed" signs so I certainly see this marriage being a lasting one. <BR> Saturn in Libra is at the bottom of the chart giving a singleton power to the family and there again TRADITION. There are five planets in Aries in the 10th House so LOTS of energy in Life Before the ... Sat, 30 Apr 2011 01:55:02 EST New here--Hi!

I am a member of our local Astrology association and get to monthly meetings as I can (health permitting). <BR> <BR> I came across Spark People via a money saving website based in Australia where I found a recommendation for the recipes. I followed the information trail, and found myself actually joining Spark People. I am still relative... Mon, 1 Nov 2010 10:12:05 EST Celine Dion's twin boys I did a chart for her boys that was born today 10-23-10 at 11:11 A.M. and 11:12 A.M. at West Palm Beach, Florida. <BR> <BR> I wasn't surprised that they are Scorpios since I'm sure their father isn't thrilled about them since he is nearly 70. But their Saturn is in the 10th House of career, so they will have his stability guiding them. <BR> Of course, they had RICH Sagittarius rising with Capricorn on their 2nd House of money. I find that rich children most often have Sag or Cancer rising.... Sun, 24 Oct 2010 01:09:12 EST Astrological Times of Turmoil as Opportunity? Hi! I was wondering if anyone could answer this question. It requires a little background: I know next to nothing about astrology. Well, I probably know more than the general population, but not enough to speak with any intelligence about it. But the acupuncturist I intern with always knows when Mercury is in retrograde, etc. <BR> <BR> My major shift in my diet came the day after Easter. I figured that I was feeling sickened by all the processed and high fat/sugar foods I always loved becau...

Fri, 18 Jun 2010 12:34:58 EST astro questions hi everyone. i love reading your streams of conversation but rarely get a chance to comment. i am curious. i read a comment about Chiron. seem to be disputes about what it truly means. it is fairly predominate in my chart as it exactly conjuncts my sun (5 degrees of Aquarius) in the second house. How would you interpret that?

Sun, 17 Feb 2008 09:47:22 EST Wanting some help! Okay so i had no idea how in depth astrology is until a lady came into my work and started talking to me about rising signs and moon and sun and she told me that me being a taurus really didnt mean much it had more to do with my rising sun and my falling sun or something like that! So now my question to all of you is how do i find out all the stuff she was talking about and how do i find out what all this stuff is for me?

A few years I worked for a woman who owned a metaphysical shop called "Starseed" - she is also a Reiki Master. I had a session with her once, and I was surprised by the initial feeling of it. Crudely put, I felt like a vacuum started somewhere in front of my spine and sucked out the top of my head. I remember she leaned over at one point and, with a slightly astonished look on her face, asked me, "So just how much of a sponge...

Retrograde periods are about reviewing the past. Venus is about love and emotion. Venus also begins it's retrograde period in Virgo, which is a sign of physical health. So reviewing our relationships with both nutrition and exercise would be appropriate, and refocusing our efforts would be beneficial.

I found that the best thing I could do was to just stay in my chair and think about what legal foods I could eat when I came home. but I did enjoy his company.
