Images & Words Week 179 - Astrology - Your Sign & It's Various Attributes

Greetings from Sweden!

Astrology has since time immemorial been a mainstay of the cultural influences that affect how we live and how we are. Kings, queens and leaders have trusted to spiritual advicers in the interpretation of the positions of the stars, the moon and the planets and how that affects the life of the royalty, the land and the people. Even today many people read the daily or weekly horoscopes in magazines and perhaps how they will affect their lives - hopefully in a positive direction. The theme for this Sunday is Astrology - Your Sign & It's Various Attributes. Im looking forward to you entries. Enjoy!

My starsign is the Crab since I was born on the 3rd of July.

The Rules:

Each week we will post an original photo with words on it. The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography.

Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given after the words.

Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like comical, but never obscene .

Posts can either have one word on them,quotes, or full poems ... Your choice.

All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form with a link back to it being left here.

New topics will be posted on Sundays. Posts can be made through Saturday.

One post per person only please

  1. You are early, Anders! It's still Saturday :-) I'm not into Astrology, but participating here is always fun, so I will post something out "of the box" later!

  2. Yes I know. Hope you and the other members dont mind. Quite ok. We all have different ideas and interests, dear Amalie.

    Here is my personal entry:

  3. Like Amalie, I'm not much into astrology, yet I respect all those who are...nice shot!

  4. Of course I don't mind, Anders, on the contrary! Tomorrow I won't be here, so I made an entry tonight:

  5. I love your photo Anders, it is so clear.

    It is Sunday here and will see what I can post as I can not for the life of me think where I can find a scorpion to that a photo of. Yikes!!!

  6. A fantastic creative theme Anders and I love your beautiful image here of the Crab at the seaside.
    No writing on it? Or poster style with words? Or is it too beautiful to change?

  7. Thanks Ive re-edited it with a frame and the words - naturally it should be that way - my apologies
    to the other members for this slip.

  8. Oh dear, shock. There is very little I actually believe in, and zodiac is no. 1 on the list. Apart from sharing my birthday with Walt Disney, I never really followed it. Now Mr. Swiss is a great believer and five minutes after the birth of my sons, he had already worked out their ascendents (huh?). Anyhow I search in my photos and found something to tie in with my strange ideas of Saggitarius (known as Schütze in German meaning marksman or shooter. A photo taken at the local Arsenal.
    The real Saggitarius, or how he shot me when I wasn't looking

  9. Yep I am passing on this one Anders as a seasoned retired scientist astrology is defiantly not my thing LOL

  10. .... not often I do read my Horoscope................I do believe that some attributes can be linked back to when you were born, under what star sign, which always fascinated me...............than again I have met some Taureans, who are nothing like me at all ..................

    here is my link for this week..............sorry managed to mess up my page widths royally again

  13. sorry to say ...I am passing this week, but your entry for the theme and info is quite good, Anders...GOOD JOB!!! huggs

  14. No need to be sorry. Not all subjects fit everybody. Thanks much obliged.


  16. Will not post this week, never pay any attention to Astrology --- and after reading comments I see I'm not the only one.

  17. Hi Milli and Anders, can I suggest you have a look at Picture Perfect's Link system as it saves doing all of the work and no repeats every time one does their blog. It is called MISTER LINKY'S MAGICAL WIDGETS. It is easy peasy as well.

    1. Hi Shayna, I registered for it but for some reason am having trouble getting the same code used by have been trying with out any luck.
      Once I work out why the link is not working it will be added.

  18. PS. Creative Challenge has it too.

    1. I placed one in my guestbook on my personal site but no one has used it except me..go lok and you will see how it is coming through..not how I want it to be for I&W.

  19. Thanks all of you for your wonderful entries and for participating in this week's session.
