Hi guys! I joined the site late last year. I mainly just read but I've decided to be a little brave and finally introduce myself.

I'm 21, born to a workaholic Capricorn mother and a chill Scorpio father. I'm currently in college, studying biology (my friends struggle with my more metaphysical interests).

In my spare time, I'm probably either listening to music or reading a book.

And what finer way to get to know me better:

Pisces Sun
Aquarius Rising
Capricorn Moon

Hello, and welcome. Very cool chart.
That may have sounded weird, I wasn't complimenting the format of your chart, but the planets of course. :P

Welcome!

Hope you enjoy your stay.

Your name made me come into this thread. It reminds me of something. Hmmm... Well, nevermind me. Just being a weirdo.

Cheers.

Hi, unmoved! And thank you for the welcome. Studying languages is one my favorite pastimes. Azul is "blue" in Spanish.

Although it may be closely related to some other word or name you're familiar with.

Isn't there a character in Dora the Explorer called Azul?

Luckily my kids have grown out of this one because it is quite irritating. Not that Zack and Cody on the Disney Channel is a big jump up.

Hola Azul!

A schientist with esoteric interests, eh?
That's cool.
I'm an artist with scientific interests.
Nice to meet you.

Thank you so much, NosiS. I'm definitely not the typical science student. I study it because it interests me so much, but my more natural abilities are verbal and literary. It's much more a challenge for me than some of my friends, but I'd like to think it's also more rewarding.

And while I don't have a shred of talent myself, I also love art. In one of my early intro biology classes, I had a professor tell us that while the rest of the world could look at a painting and appraise it based on its artistic and aesthetic qualities, it would be our job to analyze its properties, moving the focus away from how it makes us feel, and concentrating more on what we see/know. What are the chemical properties of the paint? How/why are the colors reflected? What would radioactive dating tell us?

Well, I knew right away I could never do that. Some things are meant to be felt, no? Sometimes in its focus on the minute details, science misses the bigger picture.

Absolutely.
And, yet, the processes off scientific thinking should not be discarded either. I don't think that's what you are suggesting. That's just how the scientific mentality makes me feel when I am overwhelmed by it. I just want to throw everything in the trash.

Of course, there is a possibility of blending the two. There have been certain strides towards this endeavor but I really don't think that we have gotten to a clear definition of it. A great teacher has taught me of an exercise that exerts this very practice. It is quite simple too. One starts of with a crystal and an animal. It helps to have them in front of you, but it is not necessary. The important thing is that you are able to focus your thinking on them. When you think of a crystal, you should let its characteristics take form in your mind. It is solid, hard, its shape is geometric. It is also very static. It doesn't move on its own. Think of the animal and things are different. It is more complex. It has blood, it eats, it breaths. It moves and it is led by its desire. Its body is constructed in accordance with this force. The crystal is not led by desires. The crystal's shape takes form from a desireless force. Thinking like this, letting the thoughts just flow from the object of focus (not forcing them) should result with a corresponding feeling. We will realize that we get a certain feeling from the thoughts of the crystal which differs from the feeling that we get from the animal. If a plant is included, then a feeling would result whose energy would lie between the ones we receive from the crystal and the animal. The feelings may not result immediately but they will be felt as long as the observer is patient and persevering. This kind of observation is a blending of science with an objectivity of the soul.

Interesting, eh?
