Mathematical Star Signs


A Mass of Aries rams describes a Curl
Potentially connected to a Field
Some Fractal of Mechanics may unfurl
A Calculus of fuzzy-logic yield.

Quadratic Taurus bulls do not Equate
So don't get Knotted arguing the toss
Although with cows they'll gladly permutate
Inverting them with Product makes them Cross.

Most Geminis are tied in Causal Loop
Because their brains are Hypobolic Plot
So if you Add their salad to their soup
It anti-matters them and matters not.

Cancerians love Cartographic law
Their kind presents a Strange Attractor risk
But should their Bifurcations start to bore
They make delicious Metamathic bisque.

The Cumulative Frequency of Leos
Thrice multiplies their skill at Quantum Jump
But if they start to overRule your Peanos
Just poke them with a Compass in the rump.

Harmonic Virgos may be tempt to play
By flattery Tangented to their ear
'I love the Curve Elliptic of your sway
Thou art the Cuboid destined for my Sphere'.

X Librans makes a Quantity of prate
Now double it for Power Y to Zen
Subtracting Z produces vacillate
Divide by thumps to clear and start again.

Shy Scorpios in Logarithms hide
With Relativity which they embrace
They fly by taking Parabolic ride
With aliens from Fibonacci Space.

As Sagittarians Abstractly run
On no Account engage in Matrix dance
Whilst they may find it Exponential fun
You'll forfeit toes to their Kinetic prance.

To Orbifold a Capricorns Converse
Distract by 'citing enth- most place of Pi
But if the Complex Plane remains adverse
Contuse with Games of Cryptograph eye-spy.

Aquarians are Fluidly Inclined
To saying stupid things like 'catch a Wave'
Illogic'lly Entangled in the mind
Their Hemispheric Orbits won't behave.

The Roots of Pisceans obliquely Lie
Within an Escher Tesselated bowl
They're blessed with Countless Postulated fry
And Scaled with Quasicrystal fungal sole.

Note: Augustine(354-430 CE) wrote, 'The good christian should avoid mathematicians and all those who make empty prophecies. the danger already exists that mathematicians have made a covenant with the Devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell'

-but he was really talking about astrologers-

    A Brilliant mathematical calculations on each stars signs.
    A wonderful touch of mathematics, science, and history of prediction by astrologers, give this poem a glowing touch to all stars.
    Above all the the superb vocabulary gives an everlasting touch.

    Beautiful Message cannot be ignored...
    Very true said, one should avoid empty prophecies, which can confine man in the bonds of Hell. Especially if prediction goes wrong, it can mentally disturb a person.

    Beautiful mathematical calculation on each stars. Let's enjoy each stars taking each of its characteristics lightly.
    Loved reading it. Thanks for sharing with us.

    Congrats! Well deserved poem of the day! (Report) Reply

    Diane, I love how you utilized mathematics with astrology, great vocabulary too! Fantastic write. Many of my poems incorporate math, physics, etc. - I enjoy math and formulas, chemistry etc., so this poem gave me great pleasure in reading it! Thank you very much for sharing it.

    I'm just finishing writing a poem called SEVEN WINDOWS I'll post in a few days. I needed the name for a character you could call a villain and the name AUGUSTINE popped into my head. I once read his writings with the faith of a believer; now I see theologians like him as part of the problem. His condemnation of mathematicians (astrologers) is a case in point. Isn't God supposed to be the Judge of men? - BTW This is another perfected pitched poem. I love the flow of words and attitude. (Report) Reply

    Existentially a paranormal perfect work
    full of whim and interplanetary talk.
    Loved your rendition of the twelve signs.
    Of course, I was born under the thirteenth. (Report) Reply

    I like this, but I think some of thre rhymes are very forced, with simplicity you could have got the message across (Report) Reply

    Oh my God! I haven't laughed so much for ages. This is a delight!
    Thank you so much for this, I am going to print it out and post on the wall where I am working.
    I'm an engineer and this will find an appreciative audience where I work. (Report) Reply

    Wow, Diane, mind-boggling. Mathematics was never my subject, but I used to be into Astrology many years ago. You are obviously a very learn`ed person! ! (Report) Reply

    This is brilliant. You are not only a great poet but also a scientifically and mathematically trained one, methinks.

    Was it not Aristotle that said, 'God created the Universe with love and mathematics'. (Report) Reply

  • Rookie - 87 Points Danny Draper (3/1/2012 9:23:00 PM)

    This is brilliant. I could never come up with this because you already have, too late. But perhaps in a parallell or parallelogram universe or 50...

    By the way I'm cancerian and not sure of being in flavoursome hot water, seems way too similar to my life.

    You are not only a great poet but a matematical and scientifically trained one.

    Also I think it was Aristotle that said, 'God made the Universe with love and mathematics' (Report) Reply
