    Anyone know how old is the Harpic?

    I checked the official bio on't stormcock.net Library but it only talks about his professional career.

    Love Julie's singing although I generally, much to my shame haven't got scoobie what she is singing about. I also love Eamon Doorley's Bouzouki playing so much so I wanna get one!

    The only Gaelic words I know are...

    Slainte Mhath


    Ciamar a tha sibh but I don't how to say the response :banghead:

    I would like to attend Sabhal Mòr Ostaig in Skye for a summer course but being skint there is no way it is going to happen soon. In the meantime I'm going to have a go at using the BBC's website

    Wickedpedia is correct - his Harpicness was born on 22 June 1965, making him 44 (and a Cancer on the cusp of Gemini, astrology fans ;) )...

    Hmmm, haven't seen all that screaming cleanup stuff before - must take a look at that after work... :confused1:

    EDIT: okay I love this page about being on the cusp of Gemini and Cancer, especially the personal description "you are an oddball" - heh heh, that can't be Nick ;)

    NoCelebrity Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    My Saturn in Taurus (GM and Ford mating?)

    It was a race between SPB and HarperPR to get the true age out... How exactly did "Harpic" get coined to distinguish the two distinguished Harper Gentlemen??

    At least Nick's Mercury isn't on the cusp of Libra/Scorpio like me! (true!)

    And my Moon is Square my Sun in my Second House. (true!)

    But it's Natal bad...:D

    (actually, my Saturn is in Capricorn, where it Rules!)

    Saturn in Taurus - GM in Ford - good'un, NC :wink: I'm a Capricorn who behaves like an Aquarius... oh except for the stubborn Capricorn bit, I OWN that :rolleyes:

    Harpic is actually the name of a toilet cleaning product here so I'm sure it's affectionately taking the piss :D

    No, I only get here on and off - too busy tweeting!:D

    Btw, NC, if you're into this, Jonathan Cainer, top astrologer over this way, is a tweeter too.

    I still don't understand the chart stuff really. I've got Venus in Leo though: fire and passion, lol! I like being a Libra ( I think Nick's partner and I share same date, Sep 24) but sometimes it's hard always seeing both sides of an argument and wanting those scales to balance perfectly!

    An teanga.

    The standard reply to "Ciamar a tha sibh/thu?" is "Tha gu math, tapadh leibh", but like you, I get stuck there.

    If you can get BBC Alba (on Sky 168) the "Speaking our language" series is pretty good, even if it is 20 years old!

    Feasgar math!

    I don't really believe in it, but I was curious in school (code for I wanted to meet GIRLS!). I view it as humanity's first attempt at psychology. How you interpret the various juxtapositions of ideas and motivations can be "twisted" to say just about anything (but they never fell for the "you should sleep with the first man you see":wink: unless they thought it meant the NEXT man).

    BTW, my Venus is in LIBRA (my Sun Sign) and Second House (like my Sun) which means my Rising Sign (aka Ascendant) is in Leo. So be careful when you talk about fire and passion! Too bad my Mars is also in Libra (on the cusp of my Third House). Means I'm supposed to be "lazy" about sex (perhaps I overcompensate!).

    Like I just replied to HarperPR, I don't really believe the stuff. Sometimes I consider it to be fun, but mostly I'm curious about the psychology of things like Astrology, Tarot, I Ching -- as well as the psychology of those who DO BELIEVE in hocumpocum. I wrote a satirical film script in College about just such things, and expanded on it in the decade that followed. A few lyrics from my theme song for "The Shuffle:"

    A little Poker, Tarot, Chemistry
    Confucianism and Astrology
    Throw Dice or I Ching Leave No Mystery
    It's Fortune-Telling, for A Gambler's Fee

    Some people call it a Game
    Others would call it Luck
    The Shuffle's the name, Fortune and Fame
    One way to make a buck.

    The song wrote itself in a hour. My Treatment turned into a monster for a twenty hour script, so I'm hesitant to revisit it. My other ideas are more manageable.

    Toilette sounds so much better!

    As you wrote between the lines, My Moon must be in Capricorn (Square my Sun in Libra, as I said before) and not Cancer! I'm a "wishy-washy" Libra that wants everyone to get along, but who secretly thinks like a Leo (my Ascendant, one of those signs who think they should be in charge. King of the human Jungle).

    Technically, Taureans are even more stubborn than Capricorns. Both are Earth Signs (along with Virgo) which denote "stability" (a euphemism for pig-headedness). However, Taureans are also "Fixed" (even more stubborness) but THE GOAT is a "Cardinal" Sign like Libra, Cancer, and Aries which denotes energy and an outgoing quality. Earth signs are supposed to be good with business, finances, investment.

    i.e. SPB is convinced she's stubborn, and no one's going to convince her otherwise.

    Love and Kisses, Jack the Libra.

    BTW -- I have no retrograde planets in my Natal (birth) chart. Unlike John Lennon who's Jupiter and Saturn are in precise (less than a degree apart) retrograde conjunction in Taurus, exactly 19 years older than me

    Tidbit: Christmas says Jesus was a Capricorn, but scientists and biblical scholars think it more likely he was an Aries -- the Sign of Kings (another one?) that brought the three Magi.

    Is that the English "Piss" or the Yankee "Piss?"

    Should probably have been "An canan"

    Not sure where an teanga came from.
    Apologies to all Gaelic speakers.
    I am trying.
