The concept of ‘birthday’ has come to my attention today, as a good friend of mine yesterday changed my birthday on Facebook to this day. It is a wild coincidence, for I have felt for a while that the Spring Equinox will be of some significance this year. So when I logged on to my facebook at about 1am last night and found about 7 different birthday messages from various peoples, somehow it did not surprise me so much.
BUT I feel it necessary, now, to pin down exactly what a birthday means for me.
A birthday is of absolutely huge significance, astronomically/astrologically. I wrote of why this is so here: http://sisinvincible.livejournal.com/106213.html. A birthday is when the shape of the sky is most similar to how it was when you were brought into this world. This is a birthday for me. I do not consider, though, that the suns presence in the sky overhauls the presence of the stars and planets and moon. In fact, I consider the moon to have had a greater impact on our emotional being than the sun has had, and that is reflected by the very nature of a full moon for me (where I normally have much much energy going on all around me).
I have realised, when looking for details on my next lunar birthday, that it was very hard to search through this journal in order to find this. When I have finished uni, maybe I will move over to a more easy-to-handle site, and categorise the entries properly under tags or topics, etc. It would be a massive job, and would require me to re-read years of writings, but I feel it would be necessary.
For now, though, I will simply put down when my following lunar birthdays are. This is mainly so that I can keep track of them – though others could celebrate them as they will…
24 – Thursday, 11 April 2013
25 – Monday, 31 March 2014
26 – Friday, 20 March 2015
27 – Tuesday, 8 March 2016
28 – Saturday, 25 February 2017
29 – Wednesday, 14 February 2018
30 – Sunday, 3 February 2019
If you look closely, you will see that all 7 days of the week are covered in this allotted 7 coming lunar birthdays of mine. However, there is a possible minor fault – a lunar year is 354.37 days long, and I haven’t been able to add the .37. I will probably have to recalculate this all at a later time. For now, though, I will treat the time around the 11th April as the next astronomically significant date for this being.
