Between the Posts: Munchies for Astro-Thought

We all know the expression, food for thought. This new feature is more like a snack. It’s a prompt for thinking about some astrological idea and how it works for you. I’d love to have your feedback in the Comments!

Here’s the first Munchie:

If you had a t-shirt and could print only one word on it, what would that word be? And where does that word “come from” in your chart?

Using myself as an example that won’t be a surprise to some of my regular readers (I’ve said it before), my word would be Gutsy. Where that comes from in my chart is Mars trine Jupiter. See The Astrology of Fear and Courage for discussion on how Mars rules courage.

Have fun with it!

Love it Joyce :)
I have a strong Mars and "courage" is one of my favorite words.

Joyce Mason said...

We can shop at the same t-shirt shop, Joanne! :) Thanks for dropping in to comment.

LB said...

Hi Joyce.:) For me, the first word that came to mind was "compassion". Must be my Neptune-Mercury-Jupiter conjunction, rulers of my chart's angles.

It's something to strive for anyway.

Joyce Mason said...

Good one, LB! I think the Compassion t-shirt is what my brother wore as a kid. He was always telling our mom, "The dog followed me home." Our family treats our pets so well, my bro often said, "If there's really reincarnation, I want to come back as a Mason family pet." Lots of Neptunians, of course! We're in good company with you on Team C.

Lana said...

Mine would be "Peace", man!

That comes from my Moon conjunct Neptune in Libra, though it is not a close conjunction.

Thanks for stimulating our thinking, once again, Joyce!

I love it, Lana. You won't have any trouble finding a shirt with your word on it, either. The peace symbol and Peace as a one-word mantra appears on all kinds of clothing. It seems to be having a renaissance from the '60s-'70s. It's certainly needed more than ever. Hugs!

So funny to find this subject, as I was exploring having a t-shirt created (with an astrological theme, too) about the same time you blogged this (Virgo here) back in mid-July... My one word would be: Cazimi, to honor my Pluto conjunct Sun, within minutes, in Virgo...

Joyce Mason said...

Clever! I have always thought Cazimi was such a cool-sounding term. It sounds like the name of some scrumptious Italian dessert to me, like maybe a fancy layer-upon-layer of gelato-like ices mounded into a delicate shape. Pluto would melt it, though. :) If you actually get the shirt, I'd love to see a photo!

PS - Hotter than Pluto's domain here. Now I want one!
