We'd be done fairly quickly; chess payers have Mars-Sun combinations. It's the most purely masculine human endeavor Ive seen.

(Which is why you will stay as far away from it as you stay from yourself;)

Again, as I noted on my astrology thread:

...the existence of existence itself is so profoundly problematic to me, only a fool would completely rule out anything. From God, to astrology, to numerology, to sim worlds, to dream worlds, to solipsism, to the Matrix, to, well, on and on and on and on, come on, admit it, who the hell really knows?

So, what are we left with then? Is it not the capacity of those who believe in them to come up with one or another way to at least attempt to demonstrate why others are obligated to believe them too. If, for example, they wish to be thought of as a rational human being.


You will either make that attempt or not. Not on this thread of course but that's why I created the astrology thread.

Next up: chess and value ontology.

Okay an actual question, I have to do some actual research now.

Ok actually Pluto is in there usually as well. That's interesting, as it's the same with soldiers and martial artists, fighters.

Mars, Mars-Pluto, Mars-Sun.

Where's your Mars, Brian.

Biggies Mars is definitely well hidden, in a feminine cluster or something.

Your Mars is strongly placed, afflicted clearly somewhat to Saturn - ?

"Okay an actual question, I have to do some actual research now."

You're supposed to do the research before you make this assessment. As you state it, the chess players who are 'done fairly quickly' do so because they have mars-sun combinations.

"We'd be done fairly quickly; chess payers have Mars-Sun combinations."

Now what if you discovered that more chess players than not who are 'done fairly quickly' have no Mars-sun combinations?

You'd have to publicly retract your thesis and you'd loss all credibility in the eyes of professional astrologers.

Always do your research first, son. Even if what you are practicing is pseudo-science, you should still adhere to the proper rules of induction and experiment.

Yeah, I figured. Stupid I didn't write it down. Stupid I write this down now.

Its like trading. I invariably have good ideas but very rarely act on them.

I saw Mars with lots of space and abrasiveness, a happy Mars essentially.

Anyway, I was simply keeping my efforts minimal to bigs. I had done a bunch of research few years back telling me Mars-Sun combos are strikingly common with these players. I exaggerated to bigs, didn't expect anyone to ask for real. It's a first out here, someone asking an intelligent question.


Edit - Bigs Mars is in.... Pisces?

Just as I post this I get a notice copper reaches another peak -

I bought some when Venus and Sun went into Taurus because Venus rules Copper and Taurus, sold it on second thought, of course the damned thing keeps rising ever since.

Fuck I hate this.

I hate this I hate this. You can see why people jumped from windows.


edit - not being serious here.
