Scorpio Man Love, Lust, and ObsessionScorpio Man Love, Lust, and Obsession by Nikita Gharat
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think she has described, the Scorpio man point blank. What I liked is the fact that she has elaborated the Scorpio stare.

She let's the girl in love with a Scorpio man distinguish between love and lust. It is true that Scorpio men are known for the loyalty but they can also be brutal heartbreakers. This book helps in finding out whether you are with a keeper or breaker. Also, there are additional chapters such as Scorpio man and eros signs, which help in knowing "what triggers the particular scorpio man".

The book has detailed insight, I loved reading it. Recommended for those in love with a Scorpio man and also for those who are Scorpio themselves.

The History of making soaps!

Well, with the increased awareness towards personal hygiene and consciousness towards beauty, soaps have gained popularity from the past few centuries. Soaps can be categorized as detergents used for washing utensils or clothes and as beauty soaps used for cleansing the skin. Everyday we see advertisements of movie stars endorsing the beauty soap on television. Soaps are a part of life or a routine thing. But this was not the case a number of centuries ago yet it does not imply that the soap was not invented then.

Archaeological excavations track the invention of soaps back in 2800 B.C. Babylonia. A material similar to that of soap was found in the clay cylinders during the excavations. The inscriptions on the pots read that the ashes were boiled with fats; this is the method of making soaps. However, the purpose of the soap or its use is not specified. This material was later on used for styling hair.

Ancient Egyptians took bath on a regular basis. A 1500 B.C. Medical document describes that animal and vegetable oils were boiled with ashes and alkali salts to make soap like material. This was used for the treatment of skin diseases and for washing.

Moses too, gave laws specifying the importance of personal hygiene to the Israelis. He associated cleanliness with sound health and religious purification. The Israelis possessed the knowledge of making hair gel by mixing oil and ashes have been mentioned in the biblical accounts.

In today’s world where soap is a regular commodity used everyday for personal and household purposes got its name as per the ancient roman legend from “Mount Sapo”, a mountain where animals were sacrificed. The rains washed the melted animal fats and ashes of wood bringing them down in the clay soil aligning Tiber River. The women who came there for washing clothes discovered that the mixture at the river bank cleansed them thoroughly.


The bathing system saw the most flourishing times with the progress of the Roman civilization. The famous huge roman bath that was built in 312 B.C. was supplied with water from the aqueducts. Quite similar to their eastern counterpart “The Great Bath” of the Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro civilization the roman baths were luxurious. Bathing gained popularity and became an integral part of roman lifestyle.

In the second century A.D. bathing with soap was recommended by Galen a Greek physician for both cleansing and medical reasons.

But the situation changed completely after the fall of Rome in 467 A.D. The bathing habits declined and this resulted in the great plagues of the middle centuries. The most remarkable was Black Death of the 14th century. However, in the 17th century Europe began to regain its soap culture.

Soap making in Europe can be traced back to the 7th century. The method of making soaps in Europe was slightly different. Europeans made the use of fragrances along with animal and vegetable oils as well as plant ashes. Italy, France and Spain were early centers of soap making due to their ready supply of raw materials such as oil from olive trees.

8th House Synastry: When You Feel It Deeply and Madly!

When the 8th house is affected in synastry, you will feel the hit truly, madly  and deeply. However, the planet person may not know at all. Most of the times people don't understand that in synastry house overlays, the planet person is not affected. It is the house person who feels the energy of the planet. The same is applicable for the asteroids and points. 

The house person is the host while the planet person is the guest. Until unless it has any friend or enemy belonging to the planet person, there is no way the planet person will feel anything. That is why, unrequited love takes place. There are four sensitive points where planets in synastry can affect us deeply such as the ascendant (mind, personality), IC (soul and past lives), descendant (partnerships and open enemies) and MC (family name, public image and professional status).
Nevertheless, there are other points that can be extremely personal such as 2nd house cusp (security needs), 5th house cusp (romance and procreat…

Nessus in Houses, Signs and Synastry: Obsession Out of Control

For most people Nessus symbolizes abuse, excessive lust and manipulation. Although, it cannot be denied that it is associated with these qualities, it is unnatural to associate it solely with these things. I have read excessively disturbing interpretations of Nessus on the internet. I really cannot understand why some astrologers have a prejudice against some asteroids and planets.

In this article, I will try to clear the air about Nessus and will give an insight about reading him in your chart and synastry. To begin with, Nessus is a centaur of Pluto. So, associating him with darkness, manipulation, obsession, possessiveness and excessive lust is understandable. Nessus is an uncontrolled unevolved Pluto. When he has hard aspects natally, then he shows his dark side but when he has good aspects then he can be a problem solver. Good aspects are aspects from Saturn, Jupiter and Chiron. Most astrologers over the internet want to paint a gruesome picture of Nessus. However, I believe thr…
