    Well done in your research Diane I'm sure it took a lot out of you. Less rhyme more rhythm and your poetry could take off, the volume of work will be less too. Well done (Report) Reply

    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

    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

    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.
    I like to add this poem. Thnx for share. (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
