Ok folks, we have just one more day, and we are about to get catapulted into Spring. So Get Ready.

This song is very appropriate:

Thousands of years ago, literally thousands, we Iranians finished up all the "spring cleaning" today, and tomorrow. We had massive celebrations on the way. Spring fever was in the air.

What is it that drives us to get out and drive forward? The weather in Iranian plateau from around 20,000 years ago became seasonal. It had not happened before anywhere on the planet ever.

Iranians were clever clocks, and they built lots of measuring instruments. We have loads of stone circles and other buildings. Later they wondered over to other parts of the planet, and places like Stonehenge appeared.

The ancients noticed that plants grew and all of nature woke up. They knew that something very natural was happening. So Iranians wanted to be in synch with it. We mastered time. We found when Spring began. And this year it will be at exactly 05:14:27 GMT on Tuesday.

Our calendar is so accurate we only lose one day every 15000 years. Unlike the Christian one, we add two days every 28 years. Astrologically that is how long it takes for Saturn to to go around the Sun.

So what is the real meaning of Nowruz or Navrouz as the other Caspian States call it? It is when the Sun crosses the Ecliptic. So it is an Earth phenomon. Yes it is Universal. It is not what you normally read it the press. It is very profound. Here is a glimpse.

We Astrologers call it the First Point of Aries. In an individual "it is selfhood, it defines and particularizes the native, his personal appearance, disposition and manner, moral and subjective viewpoint and motivating", as this article states, http://www.astrologyweekly.com/dictionary/first-ho....

In a nation the same article states it is "The body politic. The country and its inhabitants as a whole: the people, the masses; their prosperity and health, or the reverse; their national traits and habits; the country's interior affairs; the public consciousness and collective expression; the psychology of the masses, their reactions and conditions."

So that is why we Iranians have identified with our roots for so long. We have withstood all the waves of invasions and managed to keep our ID as it were. Our forefathers knew when to choose our national celebrations.

There is of course so much more. The word "Din" we know as meaning religion, but it means more than that. The month of Day or Capricorn is nine months away, and therefore the ancients called the first month of our year the birth of religion month or Farvardin. But there is more to this.

We like to act in this month and we do not debate. Mars the planet of actions rules this month. The Ram is the designated animal. Look at the ancient Iranian archaeology and you will see the 'v' of the Ram's horns everywhere.

This year we have Uranus the planet of radical thought and political groups joined up with the Sun as Nowruz starts. So no surprises there, as everyone will be into that boring subject of politics somemore.

But Mars is in Virgo, and it will finally get into all the nitty gritty, and sort out the mess we are in once and for all. 2012 is the year when much will end. Look out for what happens in UK, with the Eclipse landing on Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Hezbollahi new parliament will open around that time. Ah well ...

For all of you born in Ardibehesht or Shahrivar or Day, Jupiter will give you a lot of good luck. Mehr will get very serious with Saturn there. Uranus will make those born in the first week of Farvardin act in very progressive if eccentric ways. And in many respects Mehr Tir and Day people born in their first week will have similar characteristics. A lot Shahrivaris will be really busy until summer comes around. They are the civil servants, medics, who will separate the wheat from the chaff, as we sort out our country once for all time. Ya Ahura!

Happy Nowruz to all and thanks for your support.

F: well not everyone is as well known as me to these sweet agents. I wish them a happy Nowruz. It is a good thing that we have Faravahars that are more powerful than any of them. Ya Ahura.

Disenchanted joon:
 You take things way too seriously. If we were to adopt your attitude toward Astrology to all things seemingly superstitious, Islam would be the first pile of shit that is anything but fact. I mean come on, "shaq ol-qamar"? Talk about magic fairytales. 


Ali mostofi
, I can't reveal my birthday unfortunately, because of the IRI agents on Iranian.com who are prowling around and want to find and report the identities of the opposition. But I do wish you well. I too believe there is more to the world than we can observe. Be cool!  

 

Happy Nowruz to you both :-)

by alimostofi on

D: your astrology comment better not be answered because if I did it would humiliate you and I would not like that. Please study it in your good time and find out how wrong you are yourself. Nowruz Piruz.

Last word for today:

by Disenchanted on

  1.    If it turns out: Ghandi, Hitler, Elvis, Einstein, saddam, Ariel sharon, Angelina Julie,  Ahmadinejaad & yours truly are born same day what comes of astrology?!  
  2. You only need my birthday to tell everything about me. there are only 365 days in the year and there are currently 7 billions walking on this planet. are you saying we have only 365 kind of people?! Or even better only 12 kind of people based on 12 cancellations? Do one really need to study these stuff to say it is absurd?!
  3. Have a good day and HAPPY NOROUZ! I enjoyed the historical notes about Farvardin etc. Please let us know more about those historical facts than about us people!

  1.         What you said about Faale Hafez and Estekhaareh is correct.
  2.  But what love of Einstein for determinism has anything to do with this?! The issue at question is not whether one can predict fututre or not. The issue is if astrology is a "sensible" way to do it?

alimostofi

F: Astrology needs to know

by alimostofi on

F: Astrology needs to know your date of birth before you enter a discussion. Once we know it we can pretty much tell how the conversation will flow. But D does not say. So there we are.

well...

by Disenchanted on

  •  Here it is: http://stockstars.blogspot.com/ 
  • It just says up & down even at times that US markets are closed!
  • Honestly, I couldn't care if it is science or "Jaddo janbal", astrology or even "insider information" as long is it makes $$$! :-)
  • Where did I go wrong?! "U" does not mean UP? If so "UP" what? What is "UP"?! :-)
  • Loved the picture on the site by the way!

Baba lighten up!

Astrology is not that different from Hafez falgiri or estekhaareh or motevasel shodan be Agha.

Dude, even Newton was obsessed with Alchemy. Biruni and Ptolemy were also Astrolgy practitioners. In fact Einstein himself was a big believer in Newtonian Determinism; that once you have the Initial and Boundary Conditions known, all future events in the universe can be predicted using the laws of physics. The majority of scientists still in fact believe in this worldview, which is why Quantum Mechanics is so despised philosophically.

We'll, lets see

by Disenchanted on

 
  •      I see bunch of "U" & "D"s corresponding to times of the day. I take it it means Up and Down in the market. So far so good! Easy to follow. 
  • But few points:
  • I noticed the times' column  includes also the times that market is closed! 
  • Which market does it apply to? Nasdaq, Dow, CAC (France), DAX (German)? Or all together? Perhaps your model assumes 100% correlation across all the markets all the time!

Proof of pudding is in the eating....

by Disenchanted on

         I suggest you post the prediction of the market everyday in a blog just next to that of Fred's with the title "Stock market tamed- March 25 2012" or title of your choosing. After few days when folks make a fortune you can only allow access with paid subscription. Honest to goodness I join. i am not doing too well! Shall we?

I am not sure I follow...

by Disenchanted on

 
  1.       If astrology is capable of generating great returns on stock market why should anyone regarless of their "sign" avoid using it! Put it another way, you show me your returns on stock market for past 5 years and I CONVERT instantly! :-)
  2. As a matter of fact why don't you publish your prediciton of the market everyday for the next day and there come all the converts and devotees! I tell you what, you shut down the business of Mullahs like there is no tomorrow! :-)

My brain is about to explode with science .. hehe

by Soosan Khanoom on

but seriously that is what I do for living and I hate it  ...

Once in a while we need to open a window to catch the life's passing breeze and enjoy our short time on earth before we die on the bench top in the lab surrounded by the grieving eppendorf tubes and a mutant mouse without brain ..

by alimostofi on

D: the power of any tool is evident in as much in what it cannot be applicable to, as much as it is applicable to. For example my stock market astrology service is only available to customers who have certain astrological patterns that enables them to appreciate it. I have had many a wealthy person go mad on me beccause I refused to teach him.

Dear Soosan....

by Disenchanted on

  •    I agree there are many clubs besides science. Rock & roll, Scuba diving, horse riding and Elvis fans to name a few. They are fine as long as one is not concerned about the politics of 2012! :-)
  • Frankly, it seems to me you have the tendency to seek answers to very serious questions in poetry or astrology etc. No dear you got to work harder and learn real stuff :-)
  • Happy Norroz!

May be you can find out why I am so Disenchanted! :-)

by Disenchanted on

  •       I think it would be nice to find out what Astrology says about the folks who tend to believe in astrology! :-) I guess an essay on Astrology is long overdue! But then so are essays on the "soul","religion' and more...
  • Again, respectfully, i wonder which one of these is more naive and lazy approach to complex issues that an individual and a society face everyday: Looking at some imaginary formation of starts in sky or some ancient book put together (i intentionally avoid the word "written" as usually that is not the case!) thousands years ago?! 
  • Oh humans...!

" very practical and sociably responsible "

 Sweet ... I'll take that  :)

Mehr 12th actually is my birthday !

Thank you  


Disenchanted

I thought astrology has gone the way of alchemy!

by Disenchanted on

  •    Respectfully, while people are striving to understand nature of mind and society  in neuroscience labs, psychological studies, sociology and new and exciting science of networks, it is naive to say the least, at this day and age to think position of Mars against some imaginary constellation of stars is rellavant to anything. I wish it was that simple:
"But Mars is in Virgo, and it will finally get into all the nitty gritty, and sort out the mess we are in once and for all." 
  •         Granted, some of these stuff have some historical significance and are a delight to know as the case you mentioned about relation between "deen" & "Farvardeen". But the fun stops there. Any more attempt to figure out the path of fututre through an imaginary group of stars some of which may not even exists anymore is naive and ignorant! 

alimostofi

S: Saturn in Mehr means that

by alimostofi on

S: Saturn in Mehr means that those born in Mehr mah will be very practical and sociably responsible. Now Saturn or Keyvan has been in Mehr for a while, it might have already happened in the past year or so, if you were born at the beginning of Mehr.

Dear Ali ...

by Soosan Khanoom on

I was born in Mehr and because of that I am curious to know  what do you mean by: " Mehr will get very serious with Saturn there"

I am usually not a serious person. I change my mind like the spring weather.. lol 

But I still am tempted to know what that means ?  I am not into these stuff much ... basically clueless !
