Why I gave up writing about Astrology, for now.

Truly well written. My Astro blog was launched in 2008, and back then I wrote forecasts and analysis intermittently. These days, I prefer to read and promulgate the work of others, exposing new voices to larger audiences than they would encounter as a new blogger with, say, five followers. I still write forecasts, sometimes, but do not feel constrained by it. And, like you, I am branching out into other areas (writing, photography) and continue to do so. Best of luck to you in the future, whether you choose to blog or not.

When I started this blog (2011), astrology was the thing that was so consistent in my life; for better or for worse. There’s so much that I could have said about my relationship to the subject, and my passion for it, and my observations from about the age of 10 (mostly through software) and so on.

I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
