Random Thoughts Thread 2
I wonder if we can have an ongoing thread to discuss current astrology? I come here only for that fix, often looking for @Osiris-wife 's posts, and then if I don't find them, its disappointing.
Currently, the threads are all over the place. While I really appreciate some with long term effects, for example, nodes in Gemini -Sagg, Pluto at 22 or Mars in Aries, I really miss day to day transient astrology discussions. A bit like astro weather.
Anyone else thinks its a good idea?
Also, posts discussing conspiracy theories, anti-mask-anti-social distancing, polarizing politics or dismissing public authority make me anxious. I avoid those threads with all my consciousness, but have to scroll for a long time to reach relevant astrology conversations.
Besides, I don't know one person who read something online and changed their basic political stance. So, are we creating another echo-chamber? I appreciate the freedom of speech part of the forum, but I guess, I associate Elsaelsa to be solely about human nature, astrology or life advice.
Maybe Elsa sees it as more free-for-all place, but I would appreciate segregating such conversations to save those of us who want a safe place to hide from the shitty world outside, where opinions and misinformation get bombarded at you, whether you want it or not. I realize how polarizing and aggravating the suggestion sounds in today's climate, so apologies in advance. I hope it gets taken in the spirit it is intended.
34 year old heart patient is bored in the hospital. It's astonishing what doctors can do for you. I'm not sure I expressed enough gratitude, in the course of my life. This is going to change.
Friend with brain concern is going for pet scan.
I built a chicken coop. I think I’m ready to build a house lol. I’ve looked into things like yurts and tipi’s for several years now, but recently discovered cob. Looks like a very viable option for me (sand, clay and hay that you mix together with your feet) and really visually appealing to me. if I could just find sone reasonable land. I’m thinking some where on or near the continental divide, which is basically my Jupiter line.
Technically I do have some land available to me, but it’s not in an area that I find attractive. It’s still on the table though.
I am very interested in the cob construction too. I have read a little about it and there is something so intriguing about it to me. I love the way you can incorporate tree timbers and you can make it curve and bend with such flow in any configuration. I dream of trying that out someday on a small scale. I think l like it because it is kind of fairy-like you know. I love natural things.
That is very cool you built a chicken coop! That is pretty impressive. You are on a pretty good roll.

Actually, I for one do know someone "who read something online and changed their basic political stance" -- me.
I was essentially detached, cynical, disinterested, and apathetic toward politics until Elsa mentioned, five or six years ago, a bit about something her husband had observed. It piqued my curiosity, prompting me to research. Voraciously. What I learned and continue to learn daily has made me a relentless supporter of all who defend and protect our Constitutional Rights, our sovereignty, our culture, our rugged individualism, and the laws of the land.
Anyone else feeling the Mercury/Uranus opposition forming?
I'm having some shocking thoughts. Like maybe I should stop worrying so much about getting the virus going around, and just make a plan for when I finally do get it. And maybe stop worrying about whether I'll pass it on to one of my clients. One of my clients' spouses shocked me today by leaning towards herd immunity. That's basically where we're headed at this point.
I just want to throw my middle finger up in the air and say fuck it. 😜 No one else cares anymore....why should I.
