Oh, an intelligent man can look like Quasimodo and still have my interest (Mars at 13 Gemini!) And if he's really brilliant, can play an instrument or two, is a good write, can speak another language and make me laugh too? Oh, I am totally toast. At least for a minute. ;D
The Sun and Mars are conjunct in 14 Sag today. I've felt that all day, my brain has been everywhere (they're both opposite my Gemini Mercury!) I've been conscious of such a rat-tat-tat mental energy that sitting still and concentrating, or formulating coherent thoughts, have been out of the window. How about you Pam?
I chose today to re-read a post by Juliet about the Cosmic Ordering Service, and have put in two orders - a great day to do it with my North Node ruler (Sun) conjunct the Great Attractor!
You know my Saturn is on the Great Attractor, so I would feel it differently even though my Mars is opposite it. I do have an interesting something which started Monday and has been pushed along today. I've already stated that I teach at a public school. At the beginning of the year I signed up to teach a class in quilting and dollmaking in the afterschool program. I was summarily dismissed when, four weeks after the first working day, I called the payroll department of the agency that the grant money is funneled through to inquire why the particular shade of pink of my paperwork would predetermine whether or not I was getting paid and when. I called because our applications were returned because they were on pale pink paper instead of hot pink. I didn't understand and I needed clarity. So I called. Well the head honcho of the program didn't like that and told our site manager to fire me. A month later I still didn't have any money. so I wrote a very ugly e-mail which resulted in a meeting with the honcho, the site manager, my principal and myself. I was told to cool it and wait for my check. when it came it was 50% of what it should have been. More discussion. More waiting. So I went to the site manager (who also happens to be the principal's secretary) tuesday to ask her about when she my time in and she said, "I've been meaning to talk to you about that, but it just keeps slipping my mind."(!!!)"You're name has been taken out of the system, so there is no way to process your hours. (!!!!) So either you have to fill out another pink packet, or we have to do something creative like add your hours to someone else's time and let them reimburse you." (!!!!!). I was so outraged that I could barely speak. When I left the office, I called my father. Then after I left work, I called him again and in the course of our conversation, my father told me to retire. It's been pretty obvious to me that somebody is playing with this federal money and the trail has a whole lot of footprints on it. To quote Daddy, "You've got plenty of evidence here to win the battle, but you can't win the war. And if you can't win the war, you'd best not start the battle" I concurred, but retire? Why not just resign? When I asked that question, he said"NO, I said RETIRE. And go do something else."
So, I've been thinking about this. Today I told R about the conversation. He said, "You should do it." Then I said, "I have to think about how to work it. I need a certain amount of money to live'" He said, "Well you will get a retirement check, and you can work with me on the curriculum that you are writing for the classes. Are you almost ready for me to post it on the site?"
Did I tell you that my MC is at 17 Virgo? Seven degrees from my Jupiter and 2 degrees away from his Descendent? And that his Jupiter is at 19 Sag, 3 degrees away from his MC? And that in our composite we have Jupiter conjunct the MC?
Hello All I am on the forum again, after about a year and a half, my previous username was "eastlove" if someone see it in some old messages.
It seems to me The Great Attractor could explain some very strange meetings in my life in last two years. I already wrote on this forum something about some of these meetings, but here is a complete short story:
person1 In December 2006 I met a girl who's Asc was 12.02 Gemini. We were in email contact for about a half of a year, and then we brouk up.
person2 Few months later I met one young girl who had Moon 10.08 Sag and Venus 12.01 Gemini, also through the web. We were few weeks in email contact and then stoped to email eachother.
person3 About few weeks later, I met a divorced woman who had Asc at 10.57 Sag. We met not through web but in my town (in Serbia), and still are in contact although he lives in France.
To add, I have one other female friend who's Asc is 15.39 Sag, we are friends for 20 years and longer but she is out of this story, her chart can't be connected with these three and mine in a way that I am going to explain now.
There are so much more then interesting staff about that, but I will talk only about really fascinating things that multiperson composite charts show about my relations to these three persons.
Composite with me, person1 and person2 has Venus-Mars-Varuna conjunction (a stellium), all trine with Pluto!
Composite with me, person 2 and person 3 has the same constelation: strong Venus-Mars-Varuna conjunction trined with Pluto!!!
Venus and Mars in natals of person1 and person3 are not at the same place, of course.
So, I feel it is a great sign of destiny and much is about to happen, I can't think these two lost contacts will stay lost in the future. Probably there is a great task for me and these persons to do.
In my chart there are nothing on 13-14 degrees Sag neither Gemini (planets, angles, MPs...) that could be considered so important for that attraction and I think it is The Great Attractor who had a huge and crucial influence, although positions of cusps and planets in charts of these person are not exactly on GA. So GA should be considered very seriously.
Not less important, I think maybe one of possible reasons for such strange meetings in my chart was Varuna conjunct Descendant (1 deg orb).
Regards to all. Predrag
>>>From Eric Francis' site:
"People born with the Sun, Moon, ascendant or another important planet close to, or aspecting, this point will often find that they have a polarizing effect on people around them, making unusually close friends and intense enemies as well. They can give the impression that they hold the key to the mystery of the universe, correctly or not.
That's an interesting study on the Great Attractor. There is definitely a theme going on. Do you have any progressed planets nearing the mark- between 10 - 20 Ge/Sa? Have you looked at your Draconic zodiac? You can generate that on astro.com now. It could be interesting to see if an aspect in your natal/progressed/Draconic was activating this point, lighting it up.
When that happens on the insight, we usually attract it on the outside.

Thanks for your welcome, Kim. Yes, I looked at my progressed chart but till now didn't find anything that could be connected with GA. Also, recently I started to use Draconic charts, nothing about these Sagit. degrees, but will keep searching.
BUT in our Davison chart - with that girl (person1) we have a so strong stelium: Venus-Mars-Zeus(A)-Aphrodite at 10Sag23 -11Sag39! So, it is on GA and conjuncts her natal Desccendant almost exactly.
Unfortunatelly that stellium is squared with our Davison composite Saturn (we are in completelly cold phase now) but has a nice trine with our Dav. comp. Moon, that conjuncts my natal Sun with orb less then 1 deg.
Also, recently I started to use Harmonic charts. What a surprise!
My 9th harmonic chart has Asc at 11Sag55 that conjuncts that composite stellium and GA.
>>>>According to Jay, this charts describes by parallel symbology your mate, or if unmarried, what turns you on to your destiny. Either marriage, or learning to live with the not self, serves as an earth test for completion. The 9th Harmonic is the fruit of the tree: it is both the chart of the soul mate and the chart of the soul itself.>>>>
So according to that we are really soulmates.
I am still not sure what activated that in my chart. In progressed chart of that girl (person1) at the time of our first contact, she had her progressed Descendant conjunction natal Sun.
So, I think I can make a conclusion that GA has a very important role in all that stuff.
Also, regarding a person I mentioned as my old female friend, with Asc at 15 Sag 39 I think that GA had a very strong influence to her career and life.
