in all seriousness though, @taisoleil is right, ppl who practice sidereal generally do subtle remarks — & tbh i am not here to judge, ppl aren’t obligated to like them. but what i want to point out is, they generally do not react as violently as tropical astrologers can do, like—
like that time earlier this year when sidereal dates surfaced through an article that was going around on twi. & so many tropical astrologers went on to vehemently say how this article is false & these dates shouldn’t be taken in consideration.
like.. was it not,
in a certain manner, a behavior that was demeaning to the existence of sidereal astrology?

the rhetoric was on some “only the dates that we have been using up till now (tropical dates) are legit.” ... was it not a “supremacist” behavior?
i am asking a serious question right now because if we are going there, i think we should have an honest dialog. were such reaction necessary when people look up to us for astrological information & some people will consider sidereal irrelevant after such demeaning remarks?
because, with honest intentions to respect all kinds of practices, in the case anyone learning from us had asked for clarification about all these dates we should have seen answers along the lines of “yes, there are multiple dates because multiple systems—
exist, there’s also sidereal that is used on rarer occasion, the tropical is aligned with the season while the sidereal zodiac is aligned with the stars”.
simple, clear clarification. but instead of that people have been dismissing sidereal or only acknowledging it—
in relation to Vedic astrology, & instead of calling Vedic astrology “Vedic” or “Jyotish” — as this is the actual name — people call “Vedic” “sidereal” & most ppl getting started w astro think sidereal only exists within Vedic & not within western..
western sidereal erasure.
this HAD to be said at this point.

because, if we want to talk about respecting all practices let’s just make sure EVERYONE is being held accountable, no bad faith, all honesty. & again i am not here to judge, if anything i just want to have an honest conversation.
at this point i am not here to blame anyone, just here to say “okay but if we’re really doing this forreal, let’s make it right”.

y’all know i use both zodiacs anyway, i even wrote a thread on it & i know many astrologers/gists saw it.
yes, i do have a clear preference for sidereal but it doesn’t change anything that i said in regards to the behaviors i have observed on here.

i speak without resentment & everything i said is simply an honest observation. if you ever want to react to this, please remain kind.
am not someone that enjoys arguments & will not partake in any. thank you.

this reminds me of 1) @supermoongirl9 when she mentioned earlier Saturn possibly being a scam earlier today, as she realized at some point, breaking rules (so crossing boundaries) wasn’t necessarily bad & could be okay..

2) Saturn’s rings started disintegrating as announced—
last year if i remember properly. my point being, that after a certain age, or after a certain point, after having dealt with enough rules, enough boundaries, one knows how to maneuver safely to the point of not needing all the protections & rules anymore.
Saturn’s rings disintegrating is a reflection of that. a bit like when we learn to ride a bike & at some point we do not need the little wheels anymore.

okay. looking at the sidereal/tropical discourse i saw on the TL, i had to intervene cuz people are being unfair without realizing it.

i will be going back in time a little with this one but this was important for me to say this.
this is an observation, not a blame.

!!!!!! exactlyyyyyy !!

humans NEED this spiritual connection. with things, with people, with places, they need it in their life overall.

& they go where it is prominent hoping to find it, when what they need is to RECONNECT with their roots. go talk to Odin or Zeus before—
before you act like you finna claim Indian deities. i’m serious. if you ain’t a local white that’s different bc colonization fucked up our relationship with the spirituality our ancestors practiced, but if you are a local white? use traveling to inspire you to reconnect—
with your local deities that your ancestors worshipped. it doesn’t mean you should study other religions & cultures but there’s a difference between doing that while focusing on your roots & trying to turn your back on your roots completely without even knowing them.

something i noticed yesterday while reading charts is, that people who have 9H placements, while they will generally enjoy traveling, they will struggle to connect to places that do not nourish them spiritually &/or “intellectually” in a certain manner. imma explain :
basically, what these placements will enjoy when traveling, is the discovery, meeting a new cultures, with traditions, meeting a new world that is carefully crafted in a way that makes sense. these natives, depending on how they think & their beliefs in general,
will enjoy connecting with the culture, on a “factual” level (factual/intellectual, as now you know how ppl live & why they live like that) &/or a spiritual level (getting acquainted w religions, mythologies..). now, if a place has become void of culture,
