Social pleasures is the thrust I believe. Whether smoking in groups,
Guilty of Mercury conjunct Zubenelgenubi here. That's a very
interesting observation on active contributors. But what prompted
the ancients to malign this star? It seems as though Zubeneschemali
vs Zubenelgenubi opinions have reversed on the "good/evil" scale.
The good conferred by ancients on Zubeneschemali, came from what
How exactly did we go from malevolence, disease, and lying vs. honor

- Ariondys,Thank you for the response. I don't always read all the posts myself and as you say, don't always answer in good time but I do try to be careful about who says what 'cause misunderstanding do arise on the net.I have got both scales conjunct something in my chart, they are both involved with midpoints aspects too, as well as the opposite angles, so I do see all sides of a story, generally, very much so !Cal----- Original Message -----From: AriondysSent: Tuesday, March 01, 2005 10:55 PMSubject: [thefixedstars] Re: The Scales
OK, that is thoughtful. It seemed a bit glib at first, but I think I
get what you are adding.
Strange about the ine invisibility. I can feel it. Almost an urge
not to reply, or to want to and not get around to it. Strange indeed.
I have seen others with this effect: a big complaint about not
getting answers, about being ignored, but that was ignored too. I
couldn't get past it. The questions just weren't being asked well.
Too much work, too many questions... and I am not getting around to
paying attention to them. TOOO many message boards, too many people.

partially answer it.
> As you said, there are two sides to the scales, one good, one
evil. The North Scale being the more positive supposingly. However,
when anyone looks at good and bad, there are always at least two
sides to a story. For example, Bush thinks that he is the heaven
appointee, the good trying to rid the world of its evils. Then others
think that he is in fact the evil one, the anti-christ. As they say,
the victors always get to rewrite the history, even unintended errors
always perpetuate themselves. For cognitive economy, people always
generalised, so even if something happens once, even if the effects
observed are much mistaken, once it is written down then rule
followers would treat it as gospel truth without ever questioning
it. It is a truism that bad news sell. Why look for the positives
which yield no rewards and little thanks.
