Well…my astrological sign is sun in Virgo, moon in Sagittarius and ascendant in Gemini…that’s what I’ve learned couple of years ago, from my favorite astrological site “Astrodienst”… Anyone wants to check it …it’s pretty interesting comparing to other “popular astrological places”. Based in Zurich …its” computer generated astrology, based on perspective from Jungian psychology…even if you never read astrology …you will have fun browsing through it...( Not trying to sell anything …basic service is actually for free)

 Yes, I read “those things” …admitting shamelessly to the people raising their eyebrows in disbelief. I find it interesting, entertaining and peculiar on many occasions… psychology and astrology makes very interesting combination…… I don’t schedule my day or life according to it, but find it inductive to my soul searching…why not…? Asking questions about who you are or what are your goals are never bad choices… it helps you stay in touch with your inner self.

 People usually fall into three main categories…the one who think its pure nonsense; the one who believe in it without doubt and of course the largest group…who reads it either for entertainment or quietly …when no one is around…. The first group most likely is not reading my blog…at all…or may stop after today…the second group will think I am very misguided, to read it just for pleasure and soul searching ( maybe that’s true …but as you know “ second group friends” …that’s who I am…   right now ….) To majority…the third group …I want to say why not ??  Give me one good reason...wasting of time..? Well…we probably waste it more, somewhere else…and then, we can argue… how are we going to define wasting of time…all in perspective…I am not suggesting to begin to live your life accordingly to weekly astrology reading or to become very self absorbed in your soul searching. Merely pointing that, you can relax and have fun with it …maybe becoming a little more conscious of yourself in psychological sense or more tolerant to vast variety of characters and traits in a zodiac/ human world….

Astrology is defined in the mainstream scientific world as pseudoscience, right next to Numerology…Wikipedia puts it in with occultism “ study of hidden wisdom…forbidden knowledge, deeper truth that exist beneath the surface..”  If that’s the reason you will never get caught reading astrology then…consider that:

The cosmos is a vast living body of which we are still parts. The sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest veins. The moon is a great nerve-center from which we quiver forever. Who knows the power that Saturn has over us, or Venus? But it is a vital power, rippling exquisitely through us all the time.” -D.H. Lawrence, 20th Century British novelist,  or maybe ….

“That we can now think of no mechanism for astrology is relevant, but unconvincing. No mechanism was known, for example, for continental drift when it was proposed by Wegener. Nevertheless, we see that Wegener was right, and those who objected on the grounds of unavailable mechanism were wrong.” - Carl Sagan, 20th century astronomer and writer.

Personally ….I like to open my beliefs to windows of possibilities…just because we can’t  explain it today…doesn’t mean we will not have an explanation in the future… So…today is the day …for another possibility…numerology…also interesting…? 

 Wikipedia defines it as “any of many systems, traditions, or beliefs in a mystical or esoteric relationship between numbers and physical objects or living things. You can find, practically hundreds of sites showing you how to find your Life Path number, numbers relating to your name, etc...I don’t know a lot about it...except I am number 9...sometime, I think it would be better to be 8...but then again, it wouldn’t be me...

Today, I was reading about numerology and came across very interesting book “Deciphering the cosmic number: The strange friendship of Wolfgang Pauli and Carl Jung “by Arthur I. Miller.  It’s a story about friendship of equally brilliant but very different men. Wolfgang Pauli was quantum physics pioneer and patient of psychoanalyst master Carl Jung. Jung obsessed over mental archetypes (primitive, subconscious symbols wired into our perception of the world) and  was fascinated by Kabbalah – complex branch of Jewish mysticism. Pauli was having problems in quantum physics and as Miller explains “the need for a fusion of physics with Jung’s analytical psychology in order to understand first the unconscious and then the conscious”. Pauli began experiencing bizarre dreams and was “troubled by number” 137.

As physicists pored over the equations that determine the spectra of the chemical elements, a particular combination of physical constants kept cropping up. Referred to as the "fine structure constant", it combined the speed of light (crucial in Einstein's relativity) and Planck's constant (the heart of quantum theory), along with the magnitude of the charge of an electron. By themselves, each of these has to be expressed in some particular units (say, metres per second for the speed of light), but combined, the result is a unitless "pure number". Arnold Somerfeld first worked out its value as 0.00729, equivalent to (roughly) 1/137. Why 137? Pauli obsessed over it, and he wasn't the only great physicist to do so: Arthur Eddington, Enrico Fermi and Richard Feynman all took stabs at it over the years. Meanwhile Jung, with his knowledge of Kabbalah, also found enormous significance in 137. Every letter in the Hebrew alphabet has a number associated with it, and - lo and behold - the letters in the word "Kabbalah" add up to 137. Remarkable - or a meaningless coincidence.”

Anyone interested in numerology and a good story …may enjoy this book. I think, I will…after all, it’s good to know, that other people …including scientists and doctors are inclined to wonder about our “strange world”…with coincidences…unexplained stories…and magic…  By the way I don’t check numerology that often..few times in my lifetime…but today, I had this weird…. 11:11 coming up …so had to write about it…

The Little Prince

"People where you live," the little prince said, "grow five thousand roses in one garden... yet they don't find what they're looking for..."

"They don't find it," I answered.

"And yet what they're looking for could be found in a single rose, or a little water..."

"Of course," I answered.

And the little prince added, "But eyes are blind. You have to look with the heart."
