Are You A Pisces? - Thursday Thirteen #7


Photobucket

I have been really pretty busy this week and quite tired and worn out but I remembered promising you guys the next issue of the horoscope for the month of February which is from February 19-March 20. So here they are:

Photobucket



  1. Pisces is said to be the most sensitive of signs--and the most vulnerable.

  2. The traditional Pisces is said to be the most sensitive of signs--and the most vulnerable.

  3. Pisces traits are imaginative and sensitive, compassionate and kind, selfless and unworldly, intuitive and sympathetic.

  4. Pisceans tend to withdraw into a dream world where their qualities can bring mental satisfaction and sometimes, fame and financial reward for they are extremely gifted artistically.

  5. They are also versatile and intuitive, have quick understanding, observe and listen well, and are receptive to new ideas and atmospheres.

  6. Pisces's glyph shows two fish hooked together but swimming in opposite directions.

  7. The image is a metaphor for the Piscean character. One part of it swims wide, toward the edge of the universe, while the other dives deep seeking some mystical substratum of reality.

  8. Ideally there is a rhythm to the journeys: the fish reunite and share their discoveries before setting out again on their separate missions.

  9. Unselfish submission defines love for the Piscean, who gains more pleasure from giving than from receiving.

  10. They often succumb to temptation, and float from one partner to another.

  11. In this way, or by refusing any partners, they avoid becoming hooked by deep emotional commitment.

  12. Those who refuse both these directions and take a middle way are richly awarded. They are never egotistical in their personal relationships. Romanticism plays a role in the lives of the Piscean. Free of negative influences, however, they are cheerful and sensual and quietly appreciative of life's pleasures.


  13. Pisceans are visionaries; they often find it hard to live in the present or to interact with people less spiritually inclined than they. However, the vulnerable Pisceans are escapists and idealistic, secretive and vague, weak-willed and easily led.

What Does Your Stars Say About Your Love! (T13 #6)



Thursday Thirteen

Since it is the month of February, I would like to share with all those who were born on the month of February. 1 to 18 (Aquarius). Here are 13 Things about Aquarians.

  1. Aquarius is the most outgoing and receptive of the zodiacal signs
  2. Aquarius, the Water Bearer pours new life into culture.
  3. Aquarians are the mystics, the idealists, the reformers, the humanitarians the innovators, and the inventors.
  4. Aquarians are generous, flexible, free-thinking, and curious about ideas that run counter to tradition.
  5. Given their humanitarian impulses, they are often strongly dedicated to the cause of human fellowship.
  6. Their spirituality and profound insight are usually tempered by a degree of rationality.
  7. This fortuitous coupling produces great creativity, which may find its outlet in the service of an ideology.
  8. On the other hand, the restless Aquarian temperament may lend itself to many other interests, including science and technology.
  9. Love is an unselfish and rather detached emotion for this star sign, and is to be explored and enjoyed.
  10. Love's scope and dimensions are understood, but it is scattered carelessly and the feeling is often confused with friend-ship.
  11. The sense of fulfillment and oneness is just out of reach.
  12. Among the faults to which they are liable are wayward egotism, excessive detachment and an inclination to retreat from life and society, and a tendency to be extremely dogmatic in their opinions.
  13. Simmering anger and resentment, rudeness or, worse, a tense, threatening silence which may suddenly burst out in eruptions of extreme temper, these are all part of the negative side of the Aquarian.

Who amongst you are Aquarians? Hope you enjoy reading your horoscope. Don’t take it too seriously. This is only for fun. On my next T13, I’ll be posting Pisces (February 19 to 29).

ONCE IN A BLUE MOON (Manic Monday #3)


blue

Click Here for more Monday Manic Info


This is my 3rd Monday to join Manic Monday and I seem to be having fun. It is not only fun but also very knowledgeable. Why? Because when you surf the internet, you find out new things that you've never heard before or maybe did but just didn't bother to know more about it. Like my post this Monday................

What is a Blue Moon?
There are in fact two definitions for a blue moon. According to the more recent definition, a blue moon is the second full moon in a calendar month. For a blue moon to occur, the first of the full moons must appear at or near the beginning of the month so that the second will fall within the same month (the average span between two moons is 29.5 days). May 2007 had two full moons: the first on May 2, the second on May 31—that second full moon was called the blue moon. Note that the May 31 date applies to most of the Western Hemisphere, including the United States. In the Eastern Hemisphere, the full moon in question occured on June 1. For that half of the world, the blue moon occured on June 30, 2007.
The Other Kind of Blue Moon
An older definition for the blue moon is recorded in early issues of the Maine Farmer's Almanac. According to this definition, the blue moon is the third full moon in a season that has four full moons. Why would one want to identify the third full moon in a season of four full moons? The answer is complex, and has to do with the Christian ecclesiastical calendar. Some years have an extra full moon—thirteen instead of twelve. Since the identity of the moons was important in the ecclesiastical calendar (the Paschal Moon, for example, used to be crucial for determining the date of Easter), a year with a thirteenth moon skewed the calendar, since there were names for only twelve moons. By identifying the extra, thirteenth moon as a blue moon, the ecclesiastical calendar was able to stay on track. For a fuller explanation see http://www.inconstantmoon.com/cyc_blue.htm. For more background information on the controversy over the two definitions of blue moon, see the Sky and Telescope article, "What's a Blue Moon?" In it they explain how the two different definitions of a blue moon came about—including their own role in introducing the second, modern definition.
A Star Rating for the Modern Blue Moon
Although Sky & Telescope calls the modern blue moon definition "trendy" and a "mistake," the fact that there is an older, preexisting (and more complicated) definition does not necessarily make it the more interesting or meaningful definition. Charting the "third full moon in four full moons" in a season isn't everyone's idea of an fascinating enterprise. The modern, "trendy" definition, however, points to an intriguing astronomical phenomenon—every so often two moons can manage to position themselves in the same month. Given that full moons occur once every 29.5 days, this is quite an accomplishment!
How Often Does a Blue Moon Occur?
Over the next twenty years there will be a total of 17 blue moons, with an almost equal number of both types of blue moons occurring. No blue moon of any kind will occur in the years 2006, 2011, 2014, and 2017. The more recent phenomenon, where the blue moon is considered to be the second full moon in a calendar month, last occurred on July 31, 2004. Two full moons in one month may occur in any month out of the year except for February, which is shorter than the lunar cycle. The other, older blue moon event, which happens when there are four full moons in a season, last occured in August 2005. Since this type of blue moon is reckoned according to the seasons, it can only occur in February, May, August, or November, about a month before the equinox or the solstice.
Twice in a Blue Moon
The rare phenomenon of two blue moons (using the more recent definitition) occurring in the same year happens approximately once every 19 years. 1999 was the last time a blue moon appeared twice, in January and March. The months of the double blue moons are almost always January and March. That is because the short month that falls in between them, February, is a key ingredient in this once-every-nineteen-year phenomenon. For January and March to each have two full moons, it's necessary for February to have none at all. Since February is usually 28 days long, and the average span between full moons is 29.5 days, if a full moon occurs at the end of January, it's possible for the next full moon to skip February entirely and fall in the beginning of March.
Once in a Blue Moon
"Blue moon" appears to have been a colloquial expression long before it developed its calendrical senses. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the first reference to a blue moon comes from a proverb recorded in 1528:

If they say the moon is blue,
We must believe that it is true.

Saying the moon was blue was equivalent to saying the moon was made of green (or cream) cheese; it indicated an obvious absurdity. In the 19th century, the phrase until a blue moon developed, meaning "never." The phrase, once in a blue moon today has come to mean "every now and then" or "rarely"—whether it gained that meaning through association with the lunar event remains uncertain.
Blue Moons from 2004–2010
July 31, 2004 Second full moon in month
August 2005 Third full moon in a season of four full moons
May 2007 Second full moon in month
May 2008 Third full moon in a season of four full moons
Dec. 2009 Second full moon in month
Nov. 2010 Third full moon in a season of four full moons
