GOT A QUESTION?

Someone has the Answer

CULTURE

Understanding diverse cultures is imperative for co-existence. The self inflicted societal conflicts are evidence of failing or choosing not to do so. The result is stereotypes and predjudice.

RELATIONSHIPS

Family, Friends, Acquaintances and Romantic relationships are connections. Can relationships be more sustainable by looking at the "person" instead of “The Connection”?

POLITICS

No matter how insignificant or complicated, it is NOW more evident "WE THE PEOPLE" become aware of what those we give the power of change to change for the better... "FOR ALL THE PEOPLE."

CAPRICORN

Itsdivinity is Celebrating the sign of “THE GOAT”

  December 21 – January 20

Capricorn (♑) (English pronunciation: kæprɪkɔn) is the tenth astrological sign in the zodiac, originating from the constellation of Capricornus. It spans the 270–300th degree of the zodiac, corresponding to celestial longitude. Under the tropical zodiac, the sun transits this area from December 22 to January 19 each year, and under the sidereal zodiac, the sun transits the constellation of Capricorn from approximately January 16 to February 16. In astrology, Capricorn is considered an earth sign, negative sign, and one of the four cardinal signs. Capricorn is said to be ruled by the planet Saturn. Its symbol is based on the Sumerians’ primordial god of wisdom and waters, Enki with the head and upper body of a mountain goat, and the lower body and tail of a fish. Later known as Ea in Akkadian and Babylonian mythology, Enki was the god of intelligence (gestú, literally “ear”), creation, crafts; magic; water, seawater and lakewater (a, aba, ab). The mountain goat part of the symbol depicts ambition, resolute, intelligence, curiosity, but also steadiness, and ability to thrive in inhospitable environments while the fish represents passion, spirituality, intuition, and connection with the soul. Individuals born between December 21 to January 19 may be called Capricornian. in astro(Jyotish) Capricorn is third and last of the earth signs in the zodiac, the other two being Taurus and Virgo.

An Excercise in Thinking "CRITICALLY!"

To think critically about something, you must first ask yourself; “Have I fully grasped its meaning?” By focusing on this inquiry you have journeyed through the thought process in your own unique way to a place where you; yourself have grasped its meaning. The thinker employs their own set of think methods, known as schema. Awareness of the past and a sense of self make that method of thinking, as individual and as unique as the thinker themselves.
