    Re: Mars Saturn and Antares

    to my phar phlung phriends,

    Maybe a tad OT, but I'm thrilled by this thread. How can such an obscure topic fascinate more than one person at a time and, regardless of their LAT and LON, they know of each other!  This Internet thing!  I too have been fascinated by the evolution and devolution of this celestial triangle. I even dared to post a gentle urging to my Facebook friends that they go outside and look. I feel so 'validated' finding other souls so distracted.  

    2 weeks ago, I was blessed by the birth of our granddaughter. I was hoping Mars would aid in forming some memorable pattern on that day, but alas, I can't see myself telling her, in a few years, "On the night of your birth, Antares, Mars, and Saturn formed an exact Obtuse triangle.  Coincidence? or....   How about that!  I stumbled dangerously close to the edge of the abyss we call Astrology.  But I also now understood the fascination of the Ancients.   But at least I can say, "On the night of your birth, Mars was within a scant 10 minutes of the fifth magnitude star  Omicron Scorpii"  It doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, trippingly, does it?  But, it' s something.  

    Thanks for being here,
