So most of you know, my head was buried in a bible long before I started my theology studies. I am a life student and I find the Holy text to be a fascinating, challenging, invigorating and sometimes a hilarious read.
God has an amazing sense of humor.
So I was writing a paper for one of my classes, and came across this nugget.
Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East [or at its rising] and have come to worship Him. (Full account Matthew 2)
This star guided the wise men to a manger in the little town of Bethlehem, where Jesus was born.
Now, as the granddaughter of a Baptist preacher and a Missionary, I got the message down the bloodline that astrology in all of its forms is witchcraft and that God does not speak to man through stars.
So as I was studying the book of Matthew, I see that wise men (not evil men), found the King by being able to identify and follow HIS star. That is what the text says.
Where is the witchcraft Lord? Whatcha saying here?
I got to dig deeper and I got to stop listening to man.
I have peeked at astrology here and there, but never took it seriously. Its a form of witchcraft, remember?
So as I am doing this study, I decided to humor myself and see what the Astrology world has to say about the star under which I was born…and the accuracy is astonishing!
So here goes:
When this woman falls in love, she develops a sudden flare for sweet talk and cuddling. As fast as she fell in love, she can find herself out of it and there is no guarantee that her loyalty or her emotions will last. Although Gemini is not such an emotional sign, she is a woman first, and she will have deep emotions although she might approach them superficially. Almost as if she doesn’t really understand how she feels. It’s a rule that a Gemini woman will fall in love with a well-read, intelligent man, and she will never say that “love is blind”. She knows what she is looking for, and if she can’t find the source of her satisfaction and emotions in one partner for long enough, she easily trades him for a different one. The sexuality of a Gemini woman is a special thing. Gemini representatives love to be naked in general, but it is not quite the same when a naked Gemini man walks around the house, and when it is a naked Gemini lady. She isn’t a typical woman when it comes to sex. When she feels right, she will simply make the first move. As opposed to a Gemini man, she will enjoy discovering emotions within her sex life and will be surprised by their intensity and the intimacy she is capable of. She loves to experiment, change things and spice up her sex life in many different ways, and always needs new excitements. Gemini woman is spontaneous and won’t stay in a relationship that doesn’t make her happy for very long. It is impossible to tie her down and protect her from the world, because this is the last thing she wants from a relationship. She is an Air goddess and needs her wings for flying. She wants to travel, move from city to city and meet new people all the time. If her partner is insecure in any way, it will be hard to tame her. Gemini is a mutable sign, and she can be adaptable when she wants to be, but she also needs enough room to be herself. When she is tied down, she becomes deeply unhappy and can seem as if she is going to wither with a possessive partner. Her company is enjoyable and she will laugh and chat, have a lot of friends and probably fit in at any social event you can think of. When she is in love, a Gemini woman becomes strangely outspoken, caring and open hearted. Unfortunately there is no way to predict how long this will last. She is unpredictable and changes all the time, never too feminine, and rarely wants to be taken care of and protected in a typical sense. If she is free to speak her mind, she will usually have no reason not to tell the truth. The ruler of Gemini is Mercury and it has an occasional need to lie about a thing or two, but this will mostly be in the scope of everyday activities and funny to talk about. In the case she feels in any way restrained, she will most certainly start lying. This is her first line of defense so she can stay true to herself and keep her own little word safe from tyranny. However, she is unpredictable and although it is the most wonderful thing about her, she cannot be trusted to be in the same relationship tomorrow, however intimate she might get.
This is absolutely true with this exception. It is not hard to tame me…it is impossible :).
This little summation of me is eerie but I am a bible girl so I must continue my study. It is going to take more than one scripture about Jesus and His star to get me to buy into this but I must say, I have added it to my STUDY STUDY STUDY list.
The list is getting longer and longer and longer. Imma need more wine, sharpies, highlighters and journals.
Always in search of the truth.
