sure has me baffled.
pushing a story which does not appear to be true
yes and no.
Do you need a scope to determine if the Moon is full or new?
2 things are very wrong with this one statement.
Seeing a planet clearly is not necessary to determine if it is where the quatrain claims.
wow, are you really that dense or just pretending ??
2 things are very wrong with this one statement.
1) seeing more than one planet is necessary to complete said task.
2) since NO planet is currently positioned as it will be at 20 degrees of Taurus, even if i could see all of them, they are not currently positioned as they will be then. so, how is looking at the sky now, a determination of their positions then ??
and on a side note, you are assuming the interpretation of said quatrain is correct ... that's an awfully big assumption.
funny, even though you have equal access to this real world, you sure are lacking linking skills.
for someone who claims to know all about it, where's your sources ??? i'm pretty sure more than i would like to know.
(typical that you'd reference a lesser source to make an invalid point)
the Moon cycle during the eclipse is a NEW moon ... i'm surprised no one corrected me.
There are some very wrong things here.
1. Each planet can be viewed individually
2. The change in positions of the planets is so small that it does not matter. There is no way that the positions will change to what is stated in the quatrain. Go ask your telescope buddies.
i am responding to the claims about the quatrain which are obviously false.
well, then where are your sources ??
That's just bad thinking on your part
Another correction: it's not a cycle it's called a phase
not with the naked eye ... and, a change is a change, regardless how small.
nice deflection technique though.
actually, you are disputing one interpretation of a quatrain that may or may not be false.
actually, a NEW moon is regarded as the beginning of a new cycle, not just a phase.
the Moon cycle during the eclipse is a NEW moon
The seven Rishis According to the epic Mahabharata, composed in about 500 B.C., the stars of the Big Dipper were the seven sages called Rishis. These seven sages are said to be those who made the Sun rise and shine. They were happily married to seven sisters named Krttika.
They originally all lived together in the northern sky. But one day, the god of fire, Agni, emerged from the flames of an offering performed by the seven Rishis and fell in love with the seven Krttika. Trying to forget his hopeless love for the Krttika, Agni wandered in the forest where he met Svaha. To conquer Agni's love, Svaha disguised herself as six of the seven Krttika. Svaha could mimic only six of the Krttika because the seventh sister Arundhati was too devoted to her husband to be imitated.
After a while, Svaha gave birth to a child that she named Skanda. With his birth, rumors began to spread that six of the Rishis' wives were his mother. Six of the Rishis divorced their wives. Arundhati was the only one that remained with her husband as the star Alcor. The other six Krttika went away to become the Pleiades.
Want to see the solar eclipse on May 20, 2012?
National parks in the United States are gearing up for the event.
Jonathan B. Jarvis (National Park Service Director) said:
"This will be spectacular. There are 33 national parks positioned for a great view of the eclipse and six parks – Redwoods National Park and Lassen Volcanic National Park, both in California; Zion National Park in Utah, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area in Arizona and Canyon De Chelly National Monument and Petroglyph National Monument, both in New Mexico – are at the center of the eclipse path."

The issue is that there is no change of the constellations that the planets appear in. Go ask your telescope friends. Pretending that the change in position of the planets would affect which constellation they appear in is wrong.
What you should have written was "the Moon phase during the eclipse is a NEW moon
The fact of the matter is that the quattrain describes the position of planets and those positions do not match the skies this month.
who said anything about constellations (except my inability to view them?)
regarding the topic, the planets travel through a variety of astrological/zodiac energy changes.
perhaps, these are the changes to which the quatrain refers ??
btw, many of my astronomer friends also deny any significant change in the astrological energies so your stance is not surprising.
actually, the fact of the matter is i disagree with your interpretation of the quatrain.
arguing your misinterpretation is as fruitless as shrimping in the GOM.
and, since you are not open to alternate theory, why continue this discussion ?

That would be a big relief. Just in case, suppose a real earthquake of a bigger magnitude happened,
what would be everyone's reaction? Would all the Mayan prophecies turn out true? Nostradamus turn right
The simple answer is no.
If I suggested that since all cows in the world are blue there will be a 6.6 quake or larger tomorrow. Suppose there is a quake. Are we now going to suppose that all cows are blue? Certainly not, just as Nostradamus' quatrain meaning the 20tyh of May when it is clear that it can't be due to the mismatch of astronomical conditions. Are there Mayan prophecies for 2012? Sort of. There is a Mayan calendar that predicts a shortage of squash of corn this year. Then again that calendar is a short term calendar.
The quattrain is clearly not about the current time, or next month, or the month after. Just as important, the quattrain is not about a particular date.
You can make up anything you want, but the quastrain very clearly connects constellations and planets.
ahhh, but creating a hoax based on a hoax seems to be right up your alley, eh ??
I am not open to creating a hoax by making up some idiotic excuse as to why the quattrain refers to May of this year.
like i said before, your interpretation of said quatrian is questionable at best.
really ??? May is a month (current one at that).
20 degrees of Taurus references a specific date frame (which isn't the 20th day btw)
since May 21 is the beginning of Gemini, the 20th of May is just a conincidental anomally regarding A date, why is that so hard for you to acknowledge?
if you're so sure about that, how 'bout some sources to back it up ??
i don't see any mention of constellations in the specific quatrains being discussed.
one simple reminder ... astrology has been practiced and consulted for more centuries than astronomy has been labeled a science.
yet, ask a scientific astronomer and they'll often tell ya, they always know best regardless of the fact that both astronomy & astrology were comprehensive studies before the "age of reason"
