Seeking an opinion or 12 . . .
Edited on Mon Aug-21-06 01:08 PM by stellanoir
Okay, Back in 2000 - early 2002 I had written "stellascopes" consistantly for every single lunation. They were humorous and sort of "tongue in cheek," though informative, roughly single page reports on general and then current, astro patterns and influences.

I did similar work on the radio in the early '90's.

One of my fave one liners from the radio work was "expect to have a brief but meaningful conversation with someone whose name you will forget." That was specifically in regards to a Mercury/Uranus aspect. More seriously though, I deeply feel that telling folks to "count to 10" when Mars is in fire can and did diffuse potentials for domestic violence. I received information that it had done so at least.

But the written stellascope e-mails I would send to a couple hundred recipients, most of whose addresses I've since lost do to a totally debilitating computer crash. At the time, I received a lot of positive and encouraging feedback. With natal Neptune in the second I never charged anything for them. After about 14 months of this it got a bit depleting and I stopped rather abruptly and really needed to regroup.

Then a few years ago I, like 50 million others started a really rudimentary blog. I then got thoroughly obsessed and distracted with writing letters to every pundit, politician, and plutocrat of whom I could think about exposing those nefarious EVM's regarding their inherent disfunctionality. . .talk about an exercise in futility. Yikes.

In the process, I sort of forgot about my blog and forgot both my screen name and my password. Strangely enough, this morning with transiting Mercury nearing my natal Uranus and transiting Mars approaching my natal Sun & Mercury, I suddenly remembered both and made a post about how I would post other non astrological writing from the past several years shortly.

Then I started to wonder. Should I keep the non astrological writing entirely separate from the astro blog or throw all of it onto one blog?

Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance. You guys are the very BEST !!!

Again, this is a no frills blog. . .

http://stellascope.blogspot.com

Prior to now I had only given this URL to one friend as I had intended at the time to acrew a bunch of posts before I shared it with a slew of people.

I truly tend to suck at self promotion but with Saturn approaching a triple pass to my Uranus and Uranus approaching a triple pass to my descendant, I'm feeling like I've got to do something more consistant than random sendings and posting here and elsewhere.

Thanks again for any feeback.

1. Say anything you want, whenever you want...
but use a title for the astro stuff so those who only want that can easily identify it.

You mean to say that I actually still have my 1st amendment rights and everything ???

Wows. . . I'm thoroughly stunned and taken totally aback in these sometimes repressive times. :)

Thanks friend.

3. Stellascope is fun.
Keep writing! Personally, I love checking in on astrological opinion/translation/analysis, especially when it relates to politics.

4. I put the "Stellascope" to my heart and it said I have one;)

5. My strong preference is that the astrological information be either...
separate or very easily found. There will be some people who are very interested in it and some who are not at all.

:hug:

6. I really like your blog.
You should continue. Maybe you can place the astrological part in on column, and the other part in another? Of course, I'm technically inept, so this may not work.
But keep on writing!

8. I just don't know whether it is worth
Edited on Mon Aug-21-06 10:31 PM by stellanoir
focusing all this energy. No wait, on second thought, it is totally worth the energy expended as it can potentially and has unquestionably in the past, effected the collective consciousness in the positive.

That is the grand dispute I've been having with myself and I'm totally sick of having this inner dialogue. It's totally tiresome.

Yikes.

Though I'll figure it out over time. I guess. Thanks for your input anyhoo.

best,

9. Stella, girl...
I feel that by combining the astrological talk with the rest of it, you'll make it something that is such a valuable thing to many of us out there looking for answers served up with a hysterical sense of humour and razor edged wit. Girl, you just do it. Show em how it's done.

11. I for one, would love to read it
as they say, humor is the best medicine -

and the reality we live in now could use some cross platform astro insight - I believe the future is in the melding of all information
