It's only the most important secondary science, and therefore very relevant in any Buddhist topic.

But, if you want to move it, or if people choose not to accept it, that's fine. I don't really care.

I'm a Virgo, but I hate analyzing. I try to analyze my analyzing, so that I stop analyzing. It keeps me occupied.

I feel like a crazy monkey.

I had my whole chart done a few years ago.

I'm Virgo sun with Sagittarius moon.

[edit] Do the Japanese have their own astrological system? Of course, Indians do, I be know'n that.

I'd also love to learn more about Tibetan astrology.

I don't believe any of that astrology stuff. But I am a virgo, and I am a pretty good analyst. Go figure. :shrug: :alien:

I am a Virgo ascendant. I've generally in my life fit the bill of that kind of person. My sun sign is Gemini, and moon sign leo.

The combination makes me too much of a mental person.

I am a Cancer rising (in the second decant of Scorpio). Sun is in Taurus and moon is in Virgo.

I'm a Gemini, what does ascendant mean?
Equanimity is the ground. Love is the moisture. Compassion is the seed. Bodhicitta is the result.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."

Ok I think I'm Leo Ascendant. What does Gemini Leo Ascendant mean? Read me please.

I don't think the buddha believed in astrology.

But, on second thought, why do monastics follow astrological signs to relocate the reincarnations of great teachers?

puzzling.
