And your Horiscope Says:

Me and Vishnu and Jesus are Capricorns!  I am a Capricorn with Leo Ascendant and my Venus sign is in Aquarius.  It is fascinating stuff to be superstitiious but it might be right.  It's certainly fun to play with it.  I watched the Junos and Along with my love of Russell Peters I have started a semi-love affair with City and Colour.  I add them to the Bedouin Soundclash and Death Cab for Cutie love affair group.  I've also been listening to a lot of Newsboys, Five For Fighting and U2 recently and staring at the latina from Pussy Cat Dolls as she dances in a Sari for Jai Ho.  I have a sari fetish...ok I admit it. Baila! Baila!  When the RSS feed of my livejournal goes to my facebook unfortunately it doesn't transfer over with my embed code.  So I'll Post the link too.

On a more personal note I will be having my knee reconstructed tomorrow and I'm a little Anxious but I think it will be alright except for being gimped up for 9 months.  C'est La Vie C'est Ca...Je Ne Sais pas pour quoi!

Capricornus (pronounced /ˌkæprɨˈkɔrnəs/, genitive Capricorni /ˌkæprɨˈkɔrnaɪ/) is one of the constellations of the zodiac; it is often called Capricorn, especially when referring to the corresponding astrological sign. Its name is Latin for "horned male goat" or "goat horn", and it is commonly represented in the form of a sea-goat: a mythical creature that is half goat, half fish. Its symbol is (Unicode ♑).

Capricornus is one of the 88 modern constellations, and was also one of the 48 constellations listed by the 1st century astronomer Ptolemy. Under its modern boundaries it is bordered by Aquila, Sagittarius, Microscopium, Piscis Austrinus and Aquarius. The constellation is located in an area of sky called the Sea or Water, consisting of many water-related constellations such as Aquarius, Pisces and Eridanus.

Capricorn is the tenth astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Capricornus. In western astrology, this sign is no longer aligned with the constellation as a result of the precession of the equinoxes. In astrology, Capricorn is considered a "feminine", negative (introvert) sign.[2] It is also considered an earth sign and one of the four cardinal signs. Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn. Being the tenth sign of the zodiac, Capricorn has been associated with the astrological tenth house.

Individuals born when the Sun was in this sign are considered Capricorn individuals. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun is enters Capricorn by definition at the moment of winter solstice, or roughly at December 22, and leaves it around January 19. Under the sidereal zodiac, it is currently there roughly from January 15 to February 15. The Sanskrit name of Capricorn in Hindu astrology is Makara.

[edit] Compatibilities

Based on Elements within the Zodiac, Capricorn is considered compatible with Taurus [3] and Virgo. [3]

There are many variables that determine compatibility in astrology, such as birth dates, birth months, birth years, position of a sign within the Sun, the Moon, Stars, etc. The signs listed as compatible with Capricorn do not reflect an individual profile or individual reading as interpreted within astrology, but rather reflect a general guideline and reference to compatibility as dictated by variables such as Qualities and Elements within the Zodiac. [3] The branch of astrology dealing with interpersonal compatibilities is called Synastry.

Dull as dirt,
You can't assert
The kinda light that might persuade
A strict dictator to retire
Fire the army,
Teach the poor origami.
The truth is in,
The proof is when you hear your heart start asking
What's my motivation?
And try as you may
There is no way
To explain the kinda change
That'd make an eskimo renounce fur
That'd make a vegetarian barbeque hamster
Unless you can trace this about-face to a certain Sign

Make'em wonder whatcha got.
Make'em wish that they were not
On the outside looking bored.
Let it shine before all men.
Let em see good works and then
Let em glorify the lord.

Out of the shaker and onto the plate,
It isn't karma it sure ain't fate
That would make a deadhead sell his van
That would make a schizophrenic turn in his crayons
Oprah freaks
And science geeks
A rationale that shall excuse this strange behavior
when you let it Shine
You will inspire the kind of entire turnaround
That would make a bouncer take ballet
Even bouncers who are unhappy
But out of the glare
With nowhere to turn
You ain't gonna learn it on "What's my Line?"

Make'em wonder whatcha got.
Make'em wish that they were not
On the outside looking bored.
Let it shine before all men.
Let em see good works and then
Let em glorify the lord.


If God Is On My Side...Is She on Yours?

If we looked through God's Eyes we would definately cry a lot.  Cry about global warming, or hunger, or disease or maybe humanity's ability to do something but it's unwillingness to.  Or maybe about those crazy kids that are addicted to TV, or Internet and have no human friends, who get bullied when they get to school that they enact a video game shootout at school or maybeGod forbid take their own lives.  Maybe the kids decide to get addicted to sex or drugs and end up broken before they're 18.  I'm sure that if I was God I'd be damned pissed and damned depressed.  C'es La Vie though...C'esy La Vie, Je Ne Sais Pas Pour Quois. 

On a Happy note I am sure that I will be able to find a way to head to NewZealand and finally cross the tropic of Capricorn.  Screw Cancer Go Capricorn!  Crossing my fingers about surgery tonight with hopes that good deeds will give God's grace.  And so I hope you all are happy and wish for your happiness because I don't do it enough.  I will post my tagged, facebook, and myspace links below because I haven't done that yet so I can have more friends....I'm lonely sometimes :o( LOL





Tropic of Capricorn

Coordinates: 23°26′22″S 0°0′0″W / 23.43944°S 0°E / -23.43944; 0

World map showing the Tropic of Capricorn

The Tropic of Capricorn, or Southern tropic, is one of the five major circles of latitude that mark maps of the Earth. It lies 23° 26′ 22″ south of the Equator, and marks the most southerly latitude at which the sun can appear directly overhead at noon. This event occurs at the December solstice, when the southern hemisphere is tilted towards the sun to its maximum extent.

The northern hemisphere equivalent of the Tropic of Capricorn is the Tropic of Cancer. Latitudes south of the Tropic of Capricorn are in the Southern Temperate Zone. The region north of the Tropic of Capricorn and south of the Tropic of Cancer is known as the Tropics.

The Tropic of Capricorn is so named because about 2,000 years ago the sun was entering the constellation Capricornus (capricorn is Latin for goat horn) at the December solstice. In modern times the sun appears in the constellation Sagittarius during this time. The change is due to precession of the equinoxes. The word "tropic" itself comes from the Greek tropos, meaning turn, referring to the fact that the sun appears to "turn back" at the solstices.

The position of the Tropic of Capricorn is not fixed, but varies in a complex manner over time; see under circles of latitude for information.

With God On Our Side

Oh my name it is nothin'
My age it means less
The country I come from
Is called the Midwest
I's taught and brought up there
The laws to abide
And that land that I live in
Has God on its side.

Oh the history books tell it
They tell it so well
The cavalries charged
The Indians fell
The cavalries charged
The Indians died
Oh the country was young
With God on its side.

Oh the Spanish-American
War had its day
And the Civil War too
Was soon laid away
And the names of the heroes
I's made to memorize
With guns in their hands
And God on their side.

Oh the First World War, boys
It closed out its fate
The reason for fighting
I never got straight
But I learned to accept it
Accept it with pride
For you don't count the dead
When God's on your side.

When the Second World War
Came to an end
We forgave the Germans
And we were friends
Though they murdered six million
In the ovens they fried
The Germans now too
Have God on their side.

I've learned to hate Russians
All through my whole life
If another war starts
It's them we must fight
To hate them and fear them
To run and to hide
And accept it all bravely
With God on my side.

But now we got weapons
Of the chemical dust
If fire them we're forced to
Then fire them we must
One push of the button
And a shot the world wide
And you never ask questions
When God's on your side.

In a many dark hour
I've been thinkin' about this
That Jesus Christ
Was betrayed by a kiss
But I can't think for you
You'll have to decide
Whether Judas Iscariot
Had God on his side.

So now as I'm leavin'
I'm weary as Hell
The confusion I'm feelin'
Ain't no tongue can tell
The words fill my head
And fall to the floor
If God's on our side
He'll stop the next war.
