    To down-under from up-here: Marvel in surprise at referential wit in all its nuances. I've been away and recuperating for a long spell. (Report) Reply

    Hi Ms Diane,

    Very Interesting poem. True, astrologers have blackened the face of earth, so you could evade them. But I need not; for I am not a christian (Hahaha!) . Are you?

    And I loved reading the mathematical signs built into the poem, with those from the fuzzy logic of illogical astrology. Marvelous.100+

    The poet seems to have an amazing knowledge of astrology but what attracts the attention of an avid reader of poetry is its rhyme, narrative and great poetic beauty. Thanks, Diane. (Report) Reply

    This is a masterpiece, Diane. Your intelligence is certainly showing here. My favorite verse is this one:
    Most Geminis are tied in Causal Loop
    Because their brains are Hypobolic Plot
    So if you Add their salad to their soup
    It anti-matters them and matters not.
    Congratulations on having it selected as poem of the day!

    Verily , you seem to possess a good knowledge of the zodiac and numerology , I too possess it and in my early youth I was mad after it but later I realised that faith in God is the greatest of all. Loved reading and commenting (Report) Reply

    Love this poem. A wonderful poetic write on the zodiac and the signs temperaments. (Report) Reply

    Your scientific and astronomical analysis of people under the different zodiac signs is just wonderful..... Though you have added little fiction and little humour, the mathematical validity of the poem cannot be questioned. I fall under Gemini and I like the stanza on Geminians the most....

    'Most Geminis are tied in Causal Loop
    Because their brains are Hypobolic Plot
    So if you Add their salad to their soup

    Some of the critics (below) obviously don't understand and so cannot appreciate the knowledge and intelligence required to write a piece of this depth. Though hardly a mathematician, I am a scientist, philosopher and astronomer at heart and in study, and a wannabe poet. This is going to my favorites. Thanks, Diane (Report) Reply

    Though, I do not have much interest in astrology or the zodiac signs (or maths) , I enjoyed the poem for its authentic content and pleasure it offers to true lover of poetry. Thanks. (Report) Reply

    Well done in your research Diane I'm sure it took a lot out of you. Less rhyme more rhythm and your poetry could take off, the volume of work will be less too. Well done (Report) Reply

    A Brilliant mathematical calculations on each stars signs.
    A wonderful touch of mathematics, science, and history of prediction by astrologers, give this poem a glowing touch to all stars.
    Above all the the superb vocabulary gives an everlasting touch.

    Beautiful Message cannot be ignored...
    Very true said, one should avoid empty prophecies, which can confine man in the bonds of Hell. Especially if prediction goes wrong, it can mentally disturb a person.

    Beautiful mathematical calculation on each stars. Let's enjoy each stars taking each of its characteristics lightly.
    Loved reading it. Thanks for sharing with us.

    Congrats! Well deserved poem of the day!
