A Universe Trapped in a Labyrinth

This is my boring and interesting and teenager life spanning from age 15 to 18 (May 2015-August 2018)
Within you'll find many re-inventions of myself, boy trouble, school trouble and life trouble. (Plus interesting bits I thought I would include as well).
Do you dare to enter the maze?

24. Balancing the stars

Subject: Balancing the stars

 

Astrology – the study of stars. I always held a certain fascination with the stars in the sky (asserting weird crazy theories to them, such as wishes or even guardian angels) but the proper knowledge behind them didn’t really come into effect until after I read Harry Potter. It would be amazing if I had astrology classes at school; however, I doubt that I would like to travel to school to look through telescopes when I could just try and do it at home. I haven’t gotten a telescope yet – frankly, I don’t know where to put it and I’m scared of breaking it. But I can still look up in the night sky and find out the background facts.

Unfortunately, since its summer you have to wait later and later to view stars and to see them clearly/properly you have to travel to a remote place – it’s on my bucket list to one day travel somewhere or camp somewhere so I can go star gazing.

Normally, I watch the stars from my window sill, the whole world is moving around me and I’m standing still.

In ancient Greece, the twelve groups of stars (constellations) were identified with the signs of the Greek zodiac because we can see them in the night sky at different times during the year. The Zodiacs were also associated with one of the four elements - Earth, Air, Fire and Water - and behind each one of them lies a fascinating story. As a matter of fact, the word itself, "zodiac", comes from a Greek word meaning "the circle of animals" - "animals" referring to all living creatures. And indeed, with the exception of Libra, each one of the myths is associated with living beings, either animals or humans.

I am in fact a Libra – the odd one out.

Libras are born within the time of September 24 – October 23 and is signified by the image of a balancing scales. The stars that form the golden scales of Libra lie halfway around the band of the Greek zodiac, between Virgo and Scorpio. Day and night are equal when the sun passes through the constellation of Libra. The scales are a symbol of balance and equity. More specifically, the scales were considered to be the symbol of Dike, meaning Justice, who was a minor goddess of the Underworld. The fact that the ancient Greeks gave Libra a prominent place in the sky, signifies that they considered justice, equity and balance in general, to be the moral cornerstones of an ideal way of living. Their considered element is air and that is about where the real information ends.

The information that doesn’t necessarily compare to every individual is the attributes that Libras are considered to have. Libras are thought to be peaceful, idealistic, charming and kind (which I think kind of matches my personality) but they also can’t stand to be alone and are told to be indecisive, vain, superficial and unreliable (which I say I’m not).

Not everything is correct but I still find it interesting; you can look up at the sky and it puts absolutely everything into perspective and puts a smile on my face.
