Hi. I don't really know anyone here since I come sporadically each year depending on the time of year, weather, busyness in life, etc.

I am just really curious.........WHAT DOES YOUR NICKNAME MEAN????????? Some of you like Juniperb, Trillian, Mother Konfessor, Oxychick, dafreman, LMB, etc. Not just those, but everyone, please? How did you come up with your nickname here?

Thanks, I am just a curious soul

Oh, and if anyone is interested, my nickname is an Ancient Egyptian Goddess.

Hmm..Weren't Isis and Nepthys sisters?

I thought mine was pretty self-explanatory. Oxy=air, chick=girl. I have a lot of air in my chart. And I'm a girl.

Sag - I'm a Saggie. Gloomy - I'm NOT a typical Saggie, somewhat pessimistic, somewhat down.

I'm always tired cause I do too much, work too much (talk too much!), so a long time ago my friends started calling me Nackie--short for Knackered = exhausted (my answer to "how are you?" "knackered!")

I think mine's pretty self-explanatory too:

*Virgo= my sun sign
*Aries= my rising sign (and the most obvious mask the world sees)
*Artist= represents my obsession with drawing portraits, and my artistic perspective on life in general

I love how it gets shortened to "VAA"...sorta makes me feel like I have a cool new nic just for the Knowflakes here.

From a series of books: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

When Trish McMillan left England to jaunt around the Universe with her boyfriend Zaphod Beeblebrox(he of two heads), she became Trillian.

Fish because my Sun, Venus, and Mercury are in Pisces.
Kitten because my Rising sign, Moon, and Uranus are in Leo. (FishCat sounded too much like Catfish. Besides, I'm still youngster at heart.)

Well mine is not as simple as you may think it to be.
When I stumbled across this site and registered,I was writing poems about the moon and when I was writing I would imagine the moon.
So there, that is why my username is MOONDREAMER.

Mine is a spelling variation on an ancestor name.

I changed the e to a y cause then it contained the word harpy which I think is cool. (Ever seen 'The Last Unicorn'?)

And it nearly spells pyre at the end which is cool cause I'm so fiery. (Sun in Sag, Leo rising)

Those are sort of after-thoughts tho.. The story of how I actually had the idea to change the e to a y is kinda long and dull.

My first name, "aquaspryt69" is for all the water in my chart (5 planets) and spryt to represent my "faerie spirit". But, here in LL, the aqua stands for , so I now go by 2tail to represent the "double" in .

Get it?

last year i thought i was pregnant and so i was researching baby names....i wanted a welsh name and i found 'talaith', for a girl.

it means diadem...like a crown.

i thought it was pretty, and here is an example of the word from dictionary.com:

Not so, when diadem'd with rays divine. --Pope.

i think of a crown as symbolizing a part of your aura....the light emanating from your 'crown' chakra....the divine part of you.

how lovely for a little girl babe, i thought.

but alas, no pregnancy, no babe.

so i thought i'd use it here, i liked it so.

better than desert-rain anyway.

Hello to all,

My nickname on this site is Jupiter. The reason would be because i'm a Sagiatrius ( my sun, moon, mercury, and Neptune are all in the sign Sag). Plus I've always felt quite lucky and i'm quite optimistic and I owe all of this to the wonderful beneficial planet Jupiter. I feel Jupiter has played it's positive role more than once in my life. Linda Goodamn has mentioned many times that Sags are quite lucky because of Jupiter. So I decided My nickname would be Jupiter. -Love and peace to all-

Thanks for all your answers, everyone.

Talaith, Sorry to hear no pregnancy. I want to have a baby girl someday, and name her Amanda, and call her "Mandy" for short. I like that song by Barry Manilow.

Mine is pretty self explanatory no? LOL!

But for a more detailed bit, when I first came here I posted under Bernadette1216. Bernadette because I'm always told I look like Bernadette Peters and the 1216 is my bday. But, sadly I was mistaken for a troublemaker that used to be here, so, to keep confusion down and make a fresh start I chose to be just me..aka..JustAmanda!

And my immediate family calls me Mandy!

I think I might've posted under another name here ... but I really don't remember! LOL I guess it's the absent-minded side of my Aquarius Rising.
I originally intended to use the name Elanor because of its significance in The Lord of the Rings ... it is in the Sindarin Elvish language, "'Sunstar.' A yellow, star-shaped flower growing in Lorien, after which Samwise's first daughter was named."

I changed the spelling to a more numerologically favorable one for me (the original equalled 23 which is all well and good for most, but I'm a Sag! lol) and came up with this one (a very nice 33).

I am just curious how people have posted under different names, because I tried having my puppy register under her name, and it said I couldn't becuase only 1 name per e=mail address.

Hmmmm so I guess the answer to my question would be that you guys give an alternate e=mail address?

Ah well, lovely names here
