    *what most people believe the term 'astrology' equates to*

    Every SIGN is "built" of three things: an element, a quality, and a polarity.

    The polarities: Masculine and Feminine

    The qualities: Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable

    The Elements: Fire, Earth, Air and Water

    IN REALITY:

    The Building Blocks of Astrology:

    Planets
    Signs
    Astrological Houses
    Aspects and Transits

    Now, dear sir ... if you please ... feed your eager students what they desire to devour ...

    I love the Goddesses :)

    What is MRSA bug? A resistant staf???

    I know of a all natural product (a formulation of several things) that will kill bacteria, viruses, and mold/fungi. It is not approved for use but it works, is cheap, and not toxic. I use it for almost everything you can imagine-mouthwash,dedorant, cuts and scrapes, air condition ducts, plants,food, you name it..It kills surface staf, but not internal- doesn't enter the bloodstream.

    I believe that Holistic Medicine and herbs are better for some things, and MD's and modern medicines are better for others. It's he*ll trying to figure out which is best in a specific case, the different fields do not support each other well or at all. That is sad.

    Hi Dunnatar
    Thanks for sharing your story too. I'm well and happy to report cancer free for the last 8 years. What a journey...it's the best thing that has happened to me because of the profound changes that have taken place in my life since that faithful day. One of those, of course, is the Divorce. For the first time in a long time I'm actually hopeful and positive about my future. Worry, control, asking "why me" and like are a thing of the past and I feel so free and light. Still tackling the "guilt" but that will come to pass too.
    There's a short little quote referring to "May you know that you're exactly where you're meant to be right now". It's not exact but it's close. Whenever I'm challenged by circumstances that I don't quite want to accept, I glance at my whiteboard with this quote on it and find instant relief and ability to let go of whatever it is that's challenging me. It does work.
    Be well my dear..........

    Hi sunshine I've really enjoyed reading your posts..I.m so happy that you are free from cancer for this last 8 yrs and feel sure your good health will continue.I feel that I know very little about so many things related to sprituality ,it's fascinating to read posts from others like Bobcat that do. ''You are exactly where you are meant to be right now'' what a brilliant quote..I will keep that in my head i'm sure it will help me too.
    Take Care Sunshine

    hi Dunnattar

    I lived in S Africa for 3 years, first in Warner Beach Kwazulu Natal then in Durban.

    Its nice being in work that you really love and are suited to eh? You are lucky, not many people are.

    And I thank you, Bob, for having the courage to bring this topic up. Although I've been on this journey for a long time now and have read a lot, I still feel like I don't know much about it. I'm on a constant quest for knowledge and would love to hear more from anyone on the topics of mysticism & spirituality.



    I too would love to hear more, although I know less than you sunshine. lol

    "Blood and lymph and nerve currents flow through our bodies but there is no energy flow that can be started or stopped or diverted in any manner by acupuncture. You can't cure a headache with a pin in your toe unless it might be a needle full of painkiller"

    How can blood flow through our bodies unless there's energy involved? I'm not a scientist or a doctor, however, I do know that everything's energy, whether you can see it or not. For years I believed in nothing but "modern medicine", healthy eating, etc. Then on one faithful Christmas Eve I felt the lump that was different from the rest of them. And yes I turned to the modern medicine for help, however, through that experience I too heard a voice, had a vision, an intuition (call it what you will). The message was you've been doing everything by the book and you still got "C" so you've got another chance to do something about your life, girl. I've never looked back. When I first experienced "Reiki" (still a total non-believer and having no idea what Reiki was) something profound took place in my whole being. While always questioning, I no longer questioned and took immediate steps to get attuned. It's been a wonderful journey ever since and today I'm happy to give back (free, of course) to those that are receptive and willing. When I work with my friends I'm guided to incorporate massage and reflexology even though I've had no formal training in either. I just go with "the flow" and trust that I'm doing what I'm supposed to be dong. The comments from the recipients are "how did you know that my back, knee, etc. was stiff right there? I didn't but obviously something guides me to do one thing for one person and something totally different for another. I thank my spirit guides and angels for their guidance and pray for all those who do not see beyond the obvious.

    Hi there sunshine,
    What a lovely story and I hope all goes well with you,how strange that something so frightening can turn your life around and give you so much fullfilment.

    I too am attuned to Reiki (only the first attunement)but the day it happened was the most amazing experience I've had...I used to work in Gran Canaria and one of my managers there was a Reiki Master, I was in awe of him and thought that he had something so special.. a gift, I didn't know that it could be available for anyone,then one day a couple of years later an old friend of mine who is a druid, phoned me and said she was going to see a person for attunement to Reiki,so I went along with her. Since then I've been able to help quite a few people and like you I trust and 'go with the flow' I'm just an ordinary person but feel many different things when I'm using Reiki..one time when I was helping (free of course like you) a lady I just didn't want to take my hands away from her right leg..she later told me she had had a car crash and was left with pain in that leg.Like you I feel different sensations with each person and feel so blessed to have been able to pass on healing energy. I hope to be able to progress in Reiki in the future.. I love the Reiki Principles..

    Just for today I will let go of anger.

    Just for today I will let go of worry.

    Today I will count my many blessings.

    Today I will do my work honestly.

    Today I will be kind to every living creature.

    Good luck to you Sunshine.

    Awwww Dunnattar that is sooo sad! Did the experience help with your career choice? My daughter works in a nursing home for Alzeimer patients, she is very outgoing and happy-go-lucky and absolutely loves her work!! I guess you never have a boring moment in your job either eh?

    I was fortunate to have private medical care for my family, similar to the Americans I think(Although we have to pay twice, once for the private and again to the National Insurance). When my youngest son was in with ear problems I always stayed with him and was in a double room with ensuite, phone, tv etc. In S Africa we had to pay for private care as the free hospitals were very short staffed and lacking equipment! Maybe some of our MM friends could let us know what the hospitals are like oversees.

    I have a friend who lived in South Africa for years..she misses it so much, how long were you there for? Your daughter sounds such a lovely person Scorp (just like her mum)with just the right personality for her job.Like your daughter I really love my job and yes you are right never a dull moment,I could write a book..and I love them all and wish I could take them home with me..it never ceases to warm my soul when I see little ladies with so many ailments still managing to laugh and take my hand to say thankyou,they are so grateful and happy to have any help, and any kindness you pay them is repayed ten fold, we can always turn their tears to laughter, but I could speak pages and pages about them..I must stop before going on toooo much.Oh and no it wasn't the experiences with my parents care in hospital that made me choose this career it just seemed to fit around my family commitments. I've worked in Sales, had my own craft shop and taught people how to make porcelain dolls etc...I've been an aerobics teacher,a features editor of a craft magazine, my ex and I had a mobility business so we did work with the disabled and elderly people..but none of these occupations were as rewarding as my present job. But again I digress,yes it would be nice to hear what other hospitals are like overseas and how they compare with ours..this MRSA bug in our hospitals is a frightening new threat to patients these days.

    You are soooo right Scorp, my dad was taken to hospital..he had lung cancer and they gave him about two months...

    He was very very weak and wasn't even able to sit up or lift his head, imagine my surprise when I visited him one morning and like you said he was propped up in a chair at the side of his bed.He was more alert than normal and I was happy to see that he recognised me. That evening when I saw him he kept wincing but he was unable to tell me what was wrong...I asked the nurses to see him and they put him on the commode only to see him obviously in great pain..the nurses took him for exray and he had a broken hip...he had fallen out of the chair later that morning but we weren't told.
    He died three days later from pneumonia. I understand our hospitals are short staffed and they can't watch patients every minute..but as you said scorp the hospitals have this routine and in this instance didn't give any thought to the capabilities of my dad.

    I work as a care assistant in a Nursing/Residential home, I work regular nights, there are three of us to look after 54 old people..our oldest resident is 102 yrs old..I have been told about one resident who has fallen and hurt herself but nothing broken and not on my shift.we do regular checks on rooms and answer many calls during the night to make adjustments to pillows covers and the obvious full bed changes..there are things that I would change if I were in charge but it all amounts to not enough staff.

    Its frustrating dont you think Dunnattar having to deal with doctors and hospitals in England? I was horrified when my grandmother was in hospital as they would make them all sit in chairs at the side of their bed throughout the day and put a television on to occupy them! All had bad vision and hearing problems so was impossible to see or hear the television OR each other!!!! Thankfully she wasnt there long unlike some of the others!

    Hi Scorp,

    Your grandmother was sooooo lucky to have you around, you saw what was needed and gave her hands on help which gave her those treasured extra years with her family..

    Your story reminded me of my own mum who like your grandmother was able to live 2 more years after the doctors had said she was about to die...

    There was no one else in my family to take care of her so I gave up my career in Gran Canaria travelled home to allow her to be able to die with dignity and not go into hospital or an old folks home...

    Boy did I have a fight to get her off the tablets...as you said with your grandmother..a tablet for this and another tablet to counter act that..she rattled and rattled and was so worried about not taking her pills..she knew she had to take whatever pill whenever it was due but no idea what the said pill was for..
    But luckily I was there 24/7..was able to feed her little and often and make sure she was getting some goodness into her body.

    At one time though before I looked after her she had a spell in hospital, and within 24hrs was seeing all kinds of horrors and was convinced the nurses were going to murder her..it turned out that they had cut out the sleeping pills she had taken for some yrs..she had started taking the sleeping pills on her doctors reccomendation for depression after my dad died..but without any follow up, she was then hooked on the sleeping pills and had to go on other pills to help her with withdrawal...oh dear give me natural remedies any day i hate tablets...My mum had repeat prescriptions sent regularly to her house for years without any checks being made to see if she still needed them..I was so shocked when I came home to look after her..I'm not saying all doctors are the same,I also have heard of many many many success stories of non scientific ,natural healing methods..

    You're kidding!! Tell us what happened!

    Oh Minnie it was horrible! My *now 8* yr old daughter and I spent the night at my brothers house...well hes just a dear friend...I call him my brother...He and his wife had moved to Fresno and had a lil party so we stayed. I was sleeping on the couch and she on the loveseat...Ive had problems w/her feet hurting her since she was a baby. So she woke up whining about her feet, I went searching high and low for a tylenol of some sorts...I found a bottle of Aleve in the bathroom. I remember there was only a few but heck I wanted some relief for her and wanted to sleep. I gave it to her...I swear for the better part of 2 hours she was so damn irritible and didn't sleep tossed and turned. About that time Zanes wife woke up and I see her in the kitchen getting some aspirin of some sorts...I told her I found something in the bathroom, she said uhhhhhhhh Lisa I don't think that was Aleve that was viagra! Ugh! I rushed to the phone and called poison control, but not to worry she was ok! :)

    Hi gang, haven't been here in ages but have to jump in here.
    I've suffered migraines for the last 4 years, done the regular docs, physical therapy, drugs until I'm so stoned I don't know my name, days in bed (alone yet!) specialist in spine/neurology, and who stopped them.....the chirpractor and accupunture!
    Both my family physician and specialist recommend a number of vitamins, minerals and herb supplements over using presciption drugs. In fact the specialist sells the vitamins/herbs in his office!
    I don't know if it was just your bad experience with that particular chiropractor, Robotics that got you on this, but for alot of us, the natural way and accupunture are the best!
