Another year... getting old. And 500 members to have registered on the day. An auspicious numerical occurrence?

It is still over there. All posts are moved here so really it should just be scrapped. But it doesn't cost anything to have it floating on the internet waves.

Yes, the Sun is now in Libra, as it was when AF was 'born'.

So AF is a Libra by nativity :)

Libra is a very dualistic sign - always seeking balance, never really finding it...

Kind relationships can become fierce animosities, one's sense of 'Self' can be easily muddied/disturbed by the sense of 'Others', pairs like Diplomacy & Indecisiveness / Charming & Self-Indulgent /Idealistic & Gullible - often take turns at playing the leading role in interactions...

Some random Libra attributes from a randomly found website:

Libra is elegant and charming, kind and gentle. They like peace and harmony.

Libras are sensitive to the emotional needs of others; they are optimistic and have the ability to show others a more positive outlook in life, which many find so appealing in the Libra.

Libras constantly seek approval of others and dislike being criticized.

In relationships Libras can be romantic and sentimental towards their partners. They are also empathetic and tolerant towards their partners' failings.

They will do anything to maintain a good relationship and are good at making people feel good about themselves.

They will avoid conflict and will try to understand the others point of view to the extent they will often back down rather than cause an argument.

However, though seldom angry, the Libra is also known to fly into a sudden rage. :)

Libras appear to have changeable personalities and can be seen as frivolous and indecisive, they tend to be laid back until they are provoked into taking action, usually to fight any injustice, which they hate with passion.

They despise mindless violence and brutality.

In their chosen career a Libra will either be modestly content or extremely ambitious, they are usually successful in business being good diplomats.

Note: The above applies to the forum itself, not necessarily to the forum members, even though all members ARE influenced by the Libra traits (one way or another...)

Foundation Day of Alchemy Forums!

On the 8th of October 2007 at 17:09!

Wow... time flies, I totally forgot it is in October... kind of interesting that the forum got fixed + we put up the congress at the same time as the this important date of worldly events (at least the world we all here live in).

Some other events on this date of less importance:

Oct 8th 1829 – Stephenson's The Rocket wins The Rainhill Trials.
Oct 8th 2001 – U.S. President George W. Bush announces the establishment of the Office of Homeland Security.

These days when places and alchemy groups come and go capriciously like the weather, it is something cool to have it running continuously. Congratulations to the original founders who had the vision to place this Forum on the map [of the Internet], and to those who contributed throughout the years.
