I had a really pleasant evening yesterday with fellow Chennai bloggers on the beach –  which involved a variety of topics, pulling each others’  legs (well, some were more the victims than others 🙂 ) etc.., . The major topic though happened to be astrology – Moon signs, sun signs, stars, behaviour, compatibility and the likes. This is a topic that I like and find intriguing though am not so knowledgeable. Do I believe in the whole thing? The Libra mind wavers from one end to another. There are times I do, and those I don’t. Nevertheless, do find the subject interesting.

So, to people who are piqued like me; you can get your charts and astrological info here. That is one of the many sites which offer the birth charts free based on the information provided.

The information required:

Date of birth(D/M/Y)
Time of birth
Time zone
Place of birth (actually the latitude and longitude – used good old Google to get that info 🙂 )

You could get either a south Indian chart or the north Indian version as per your choice.

Now, that the chart is done, I will try figure out the mystery behind those planets 🙂 If readers out there know of sites that can set the ignorant me on an enlightening path – please show the way 😀

Parting note…thanks to all my blog friends A & I had a wonderful evening yesterday. Hopefully more to come this year 🙂


Did you know?

Apart from the sun and moon signs of zodiac…there are American Indian, Assyrian, Egyptian,Celtic,Chinese, Roman, Mithraic, Italian, Sicilian zodiacs…just to name a few!? phew!! Check this out! You have a plant, seems like mine is Ivy! Don’t know what that signifies! 🙂

Fascinating I say 🙂

This page of Paul Sadowski is a Birthday calculator…(Nikhil of mirrorcracked: You should have added the details from this page too for your August 20,1984 post 😉 )

Anyways, this was time pass for me today. Says a lot about what I am upto in general right? 🙂


As I have written, I do check my horoscope now and then…this was for today

“As you seek solutions to tough questions, remember that hope will take you further than fear. There are always potential pitfalls to any plan, but a can-do attitude today has the power to overcome negativity. Ultimately, it is rather simple now: if you believe something is possible, then it is.”

As I have said earlier, there are days I believe in the authenticity of astrology and there are those I don’t. Though the above did not seem much like a prediction. It feels more like advice – very apt one right now. I was (am) crushed by a fear of losing something that I hold very close to heart right now. I so don’t want to lose what I have got. So, I am going to follow this; for a change, believe/ hope that I can. There might be some unknown reason keeping this particular aspect away from my life right now, I hope it is not for too long (Again – patience has never really been a virtue of mine!) . I do wonder what is wrong; wish I knew. Just that I miss one a lot and want it to be back to normal real soon.

I believe things will be fine. Hoping this really helps; because I am going mad and feel myself going into depression thinking of all this. So, will definitely get out of this slump; be happy!

On the fence?

This entry stems from a recent conversation I had with a friend. I told her “I hope…” and she said, be positive and say it will happen because hope is only a 50% chance. My response was well, then I at least have that 50% chance; if left to me, I would give none.

The same evening, I happen to talk to another friend and somehow the conversation steered on to faith. I was telling him that I was being ambivalent off late. His response – you should decide one way or the other. Either have complete faith or be a total atheist.

I realised I was doing just that…sitting on the fence. When I want some hope to cling on to….thinking there should be some help somewhere, I believe in God. When things are horrible, depressing, just not going my way (don’t know if it is the right or wrong one! 😉 ); God vanishes. She (or He if u want it that way! ) is not there! I am not being fair! God has become a matter of convenience….was wondering if it was the same for all?!? Same with horoscopes. I had written I check it out now and then. Do I believe in astrology totally? Again on the fence! 😉

Just got me thinking on how many things I am on the fence about! 😀 One of the many stupid thoughts that came up in my jobless life right now!
