the compatibility conundrum

Sometimes people seek out information about astrology to learn if they are compatible with certain people. The result is they often end up confused about astrology because of the conflicting answers they receive. The confusion is inevitable since their search doesn't delve any deeper than the sun sign level. And most the time they already know the answer they're looking for. So, if you're exploring astrology to find out *if* you are compatible with someone, don't waste your time (or money, in some cases). Ask yourself how you really feel and what you really want. Trust yourself. If you're exploring astrology to learn *how* to create better relationships with the people in your life and to learn more about others, as well as yourself, then, um, carry on. hee.

Hey, I just read about the carrot experiment! How did it work out for you? I think I might try that myself! :)
Just created a blog so I can respond to yours, haha. Maybe I will end up writing stuff.

The carrot experiment worked out great! I killed the ones I sent negative thoughts to (when I was sending them negative thoughts I felt like the dad in that Twisted Sister video hee). The ones I sent positive thoughts to are still growing even though I've been neglecting them lately. It's such a fun experiment. If you do it, let me know how it turns out.

I jsut wrote you a letter telling you that I am starting to grow a bonsai tree. It's from a mini kit you find at a bookstore. I mentioned in the letter you can grow your own bonsai out of a russet potato! I thought you might be interested it that! Look it up online and you can see for yourself! Happy Spring! :)

I love those little mini kits! I want the zen garden one.

Hi Wendy,

I just found your blog on April's and wanted to say thanks for the link to my site.

This compatibility issue is a big conundrum, I agree with you. My stance would be that it's good to study astrology to both understand *how* to be more compatible with others (as you've said), as well as to understand to what extent, and in what ways, you are compatible with other--in a relatively fixed sense.

I think there's no easy answer to this one, but I have found over the years that a lot of elements of compatibility can be very powerfully found in charts. I know I like to look at those things for myself. But to me the greatest part of the astrological trip is always trying to understand ourselves as human beings and how we can turn all sorts of lemons into lemonade, including incompatibilities with others.

And just for the record, I prefer fresh lemonade made with jasmine and maple syrup :D

Moses,

It's my pleasure to link to your site. :) Thanks for your post!

I so agree with you about elements of compatibility showing up powerfully in charts. It's such fun to see where people in my life show up in my chart because it helps me to understand the purpose of our relationship or why they're so irritating ;) I love that there's no easy answers! I think astrology at it's best strengthens a person's intuition or helps them to learn how to start listening to it.

Oh, and I love lemonade slurpees :D
