Hello, is there anybody else there?

Squeak, squeak. Here I be.

>perhaps I *should* just kill it...any 

I'm morally opposed to the killing of lists ;)

However, such levity is probably not proper in a list dedicated to "the theory, philosophy, history and cultural implications of astrology".

I'm willing to get the ball rolling: is anyone out there willing to kick it back? Here are a few statements. Any takers for a discussion?

"It is impossible to ascertain the level of consciousness of an individual from the birth-chart alone."

"Astrology is a tool for psychological and spiritual growth and should not be used solely to make predictions."

"So-called Sun-sign astrology in newspapers and magazines is a cancer on the body of astrology."

You ask me why I live in the grey hills,
I smile but do not answer, for my thoughts are elsewhere.
Like peach petals carried by the stream, they have gone 
To other climates, to countries other than the world of men.

Li Po

We rise by kneeling; we conquer by surrendering; we gain by giving up.

Advice given to Hercules before his Eighth Labour

Things are not so comprehensible and expressible as one would
mostly have us believe; most events are inexpressible, taking place
in a realm which no word has ever entered, and more inexpressible
than all else are works of art, mysterious existences, the life of
which, while ours passes away, endures.

I am new to the list. But this is the first mail I have received.

I think we should continue with the list.

A few suggestion to get the list going are :
01. Send a mail explaining the content and purpose of the list.
02. Resend old mail. Maybe a new user or an old member would like to share something new about it.
