People of which (zodiac) sign tend to be more tenurable (made tenured)?

I know this is a silly question, but I cannot suppress my curiosity.

Tauruses! Grounded, tenacious, slow and steadily productive.

It is not a silly question, it is a stupid question.  Sorry. 

Astrology is way more complicated than this.  The condition of the 9th house of higher ed and the 10th house of career will do well to have their significators associated and in good condition.  Also, the condition of the chart at the time one files is a huge factor.

Don't forget about whether the chart is stapled or clipped.

Jeez, thanks, something *else* to worry about....will being a Gemini make me quick enough to get whatever has to be done *done?*

I'm going to just go bang my head against the wall for a while (six weeks to go for a decision on my fate....)

Do Biorhythms enter into the matrix?

Am I allowed to love you for this?

If you need a reason, why not?  I prefer to simply be loved.

Do you think people are jealous of my friends of The State and the LHC?  I think so. 

I wish all those people would send me their charts and not want me to read to them.  That would be great.

Do Biorhythms enter into the matrix?

Like the movie?

Some people are into them, but the calculations are based on calendars, aren't they?  Numbers are great, but calendars are many and socially constructed, from the movements of the celestial sphere.  Too many orders removed from the source for my taste. 

Biorhythms also claim some scientific cycle that I don't understand.  If I can explain the cultural relevance of the way we are flying through time and space and the poetics/harmonies of visual relationships to objects hundreds of millions of light years away, but don't really understand the basis of biorhythms, that strikes me as somewhat problematic.

Astrologers use calendars to get back to the source, for example, I was able to translate Historian's astrological info into an accurate Gregorian calendar date and approximate time of birth.  I have no idea how to do that with a biorhythm, and I'm not stupid, I am simply not interested.

If you can get the same results from Chinese, Arabic, and Gregorian dates in a biorhythm calculation, I will think they are not crap.

Ruling: Not worth my time, as I can tell with much greater precision what my energy level will be like astrologically, but one fora friend seems to like them a great deal.  If you get results, why not?  I would always run a forensic search on past dates, but I don't know if biorhythms will reflect a years long clinical depression, phase of career/financial advancement, break with reality, love affair, scandal or scandalous love affair that destroys the career and precedes a years long depression the way a horoscope can.

But that's just me.

It is all a matter of polarity.

If we are hot and grounded, we light up.

If we are neutral, nothing happens if we are grounded.  Or shouldn't.

polarity.


Freakin' dualistic Geminis.  Your pole is Sagittarius, there are really only 6 signs, the relationships are polar, each manifesting the other.  Like an air sign knows much about being grounded.  I will think you and earthy, sideral Tauruas.  You feel stellar.  Constellational astrology is different.

But seriously Zharkov, not like the above isn't, I appreciate your commitment to skepticism and alternative epistemes on these threads.

It's like that, and that's the way it is.

I *LOVE* Leos, individually and as a group!  I have no idea why, I just love them. Crazy, larger than life and with a certain sweetness under all that vainglorious posturing!  I'm a Gemini with a Leo spouse and a Leo child.  Lucky, lucky me!
