Life Of A Blogger: 'Astrology'.

I have always found the idea of Astrology fascinating. Nine times out of ten, when I read 'Daily' or 'Monthly' horoscopes I laugh because I don't really believe in it. But the history and theory behind it all is really interesting. As I'm a Taurus, I'll quote a little on what Wikipedia told me about the history of this particular sign of the Zodiac.
"Taurus was the first sign of the zodiac established among the ancient Mesopotamians—who knew it as the Bull of Heaven—because it was the sign through which the sun rose on the vernal equinox. Due to the procession of the equinox, it now follows Aries. The Bull represents a strong-willed character with great perseverance and determination. In Egypt, Taurus was seen as the cow goddess Hathor. Hathor was the goddess of beauty, love, and happiness, and she represented all of the riches seen in cattle as the providers of nourishment. Roman astrologers considered Taurus ruled by Venus, the goddess of beauty. The symbol of the bull is based on the Cretan Bull, the white bull that fathered the Minotaur and was killed by Theseus."

The chart above is apparently my birth chart. I'm not entirely sure what it all means so any interpretations would be greatly appreciated! Also as it's the start of  the month,, I'll throw in my monthly Horoscope just for fun!
"The Full Moon weekend of April 4 is custom made for fun in the sunshine. You could find romance in the moonlight, too. Keep it casual, be popular, and have little competition in the world of love. Everyone may be super secretive on the New Moon of April 18, but they'll all still have a lot to say. Be entertained, but believe little of what you hear and don't automatically act on any of it. Romance may flare again on the weekend of April 25. Feel glamorous and bask in the attention. People want to treat you well, so let them get the tab."
That was a lot of fun! I can't wait to find out next week's topic!


  1. Tarot is a system of divination that uses a deck of cards, known as Tarot cards, to gain insight into the past, present, and future or to explore questions and concerns. The Tarot is a tool that is often associated with mysticism and esoteric practices, and it has been used for divination, self-reflection, and spiritual guidance for centuries.

    A standard Tarot deck consists of 78 cards, which are typically divided into two main groups:

    Major Arcana: The Major Arcana consists of 22 cards that are considered the most significant in a Tarot deck. Each Major Arcana card represents a powerful archetypal symbol and a significant life event or concept. Some well-known Major Arcana cards include "The Fool," "The Magician," "The High Priestess," "The Tower," and "The World."

    Minor Arcana: The Minor Arcana consists of 56 cards divided into four suits, similar to a regular deck of playing cards. These suits are usually called Wands (or Rods), Cups, Swords, and Pentacles (or Coins). Each suit has ten numbered cards and four court cards (Page, Knight, Queen, and King).

    Tarot cards are often used in a practice known as Tarot reading, where a Tarot reader interprets the cards' symbolism and arrangement to provide insight into a person's life, circumstances, or concerns. Readers typically have a deep understanding of the symbolism and imagery on the cards and rely on their intuition to deliver readings. Tarot readings can provide guidance, self-reflection, and spiritual insight to those seeking answers to various questions or issues in their lives.

    It's important to note that Tarot cards are not considered a tool for predicting the future with absolute certainty. Instead, they are used as a means of tapping into one's subconscious, seeking guidance, and exploring possible paths or outcomes. Tarot readings are a form of esoteric practice that can be highly personal and subjective in interpretation. The interpretation of Tarot cards can vary among readers and can depend on the context in which they are used, such as for personal growth, psychological exploration, or spiritual guidance.
