First Date Strategies Some first-date moves are obvious. For instance, 95 percent of women want you to compliment them on how they look, according to a dating survey from Flirt.com. The same survey found it’s a good idea to call or text her on the day-of to confirm, and to drop more than $30 on dinner. But there’s a lot that goes into a successful first fling that isn’t so clear. From the size of the restaurant to the color of your shirt, research shows you could be shooting yourself in the foot without knowing it.
Eastern Christianity Eastern Christianity comprises the Christian traditions and churches that developed in the Balkans, Eastern Europe, Asia Minor, the Middle East, Africa, India, and parts of the Far East over several centuries of religious antiquity. The term is generally used in Western Christianity to describe all Christian traditions that did not develop in Western Europe. As such, the term does not describe any single communion or common religious tradition, and in fact some "Eastern" Churches have more in common historically and theologically with "Western" Christianity than with one another. The various "Eastern" Churches do not normally refer to themselves as "Eastern," with the exception of the Church of the East. Families of churches
12 Personalities of Venus I choose the moon as my favorite orb and Neptune as my favorite planet. I doubt there are many people in the world who choose the beautiful blue Neptune as a favorite, unless they work in a glamorous industry, the arts, or work as musicians. However, today we focus on Venus, the planet associated with the Greek goddess Aphrodite, women, and with the rulers Taurus and Libra. We travel through the zodiac revealing the 12 personalities of this personal planet. I once learned about our planetary evolution from an astrologer in Seattle. She claimed that we evolve when we master a planet's energy and then we move onto the next planet to master its energy.
Generating Page-Turning Momentum—Characters & The Wound Hmmm, what’s the story behind THIS? Can we answer the question, “What is your book about?” in one sentence. Astrology & the Chakras In this article I would like to explore the exciting possibility of bridging two of history's greatest psychological systems -- astrology and the chakras. Conventionally, these two systems have been seen as having little or nothing to do with each other, the former primarily concerning the outer world, or macrocosm, and the latter involving the inner world, or microcosm. In fact, as we shall soon see, these two systems are but two sides of the same coin, each one complementing the other and thus enhancing our understanding of both.
10 Questions About Dating Answered By Two Guys The hilariously talented Rob Fee was kind enough to join me in answering some dating related questions from folks in need of a second (and third) opinion. If you’ve ever seen the movie Hitch, this is the article equivalent of that except there are two date doctors, and it doesn’t star Will Smith and it probably won’t gross 175+ million dollars, and also we aren’t date doctors at all. 1. Stalking in dating? Rob Fee: The term “stalker” is thrown around way too loosely. I have friends who will say, “Ugh, this guy is such a stalker. The Gnostic World View: A Brief Summary of Gnosticism Gnosis Archive | Library | Bookstore | Index | Web Lectures | Ecclesia Gnostica | Gnostic Society GNOSTICISM IS THE TEACHING based on Gnosis, the knowledge of transcendence arrived at by way of interior, intuitive means. Although Gnosticism thus rests on personal religious experience, it is a mistake to assume all such experience results in Gnostic recognitions. It is nearer the truth to say that Gnosticism expresses a specific religious experience, an experience that does not lend itself to the language of theology or philosophy, but which is instead closely affinitized to, and expresses itself through, the medium of myth. Indeed, one finds that most Gnostic scriptures take the forms of myths. The term “myth” should not here be taken to mean “stories that are not true”, but rather, that the truths embodied in these myths are of a different order from the dogmas of theology or the statements of philosophy.

Libra’s Balancing Act After the busy harvest season of Virgo, and before the intense descent into the darkness of winter with Scorpio, comes Libra making great effort to maintain a delicate balance. From September 22nd, the well-known Autumnal Equinox, until October 22nd we experience those golden days when nature seems to take a pause and everything is a bit dreamy and hushed during the day light hours as the nights become ever crisper, colder, and darker. The scales of balance known as Libra were called Zibanitum (scales) by the Babylonians, Zugas (yoke) by the Greeks, Tula or Tulam (balance) by those in India, and Tien Ching (Celestial Balance) by the Chinese. The Egyptians found a deep significance in these scales of balance. One mythic version has the goddess Maat, at the time of death, placing the human soul on one scale, and a feather on the other. Should the scale tip but slightly, the soul will have to reincarnate again with the goal of expiating that extra weight.
