    No, the portal to hell is here in South Florida. It's called PortMiami, but really, it's the PortHell. You'll be sucked into oblivion if you get to close.

    Oh man, that's awesome.
    I thought the article was just going to be a bad joke. icon_smile.gif
    (Not unlike the jokes made by everyone else in this thread. icon_confused.gif )

    The gate to hell is the city of Detroit. Seriously, that's where you enter.

    Good tie-in to Pluto in Astro-Carto-Graphy (a topic in locational astrology).

    Detroit is not the gate to hell. It is where you eventually end up after entering the gate to hell.

    I was told earlier today that Hitler had been run off for trying to place paintings of roses on the walls, but Stalin was welcomed with a display of firing squad portraits, the souls descending and being consumed by black smoke.


    It also seems Jay Carney comes down every morning to collect a listing of news worthy items.

    Sounds like the mythology surrounding Lake Avernus.

    People talk about Hitler for his genocide.
    People, especially Christians, should also be up on their history about the Armenian genocide.

    How in the world does an animal "instantly die" from carbon dioxide fumes? CO2 asphyxiation is not a fast process...

    Please don't inject your facts and rational thinking into this conversation.

    Good tie-in to Pluto in Astro-Carto-Graphy (a topic in locational astrology).


    If we were to look at the Astro-Carto-Graphy map of people and find them living under one of four Pluto angles, this is the Hell potential we would find:

    Pluto on the Midheaven

    ...your image, perhaps in the press, comes to stand for some popular ideal, or its antithesis, and the ultimate battle of life is fought in a social context, with mortally high stakes. You learn the meaning of the phrase "power corrupts," through its abuse on you or your abuse of it.

    Pluto on the Ascendant

    ...a tendency to relate to everyone on a sexual or competitive plane...

    People remember you because you make them feel uncomfortable and remind them somehow of things they would rather forget, so you spend a lot of time alone, thus exacerbating sexual needs.

    Pluto on the IC

    ...Elderly persons are in danger here and death may make itself present in your life, though through its force, you can come to a new sense of personal meaning and mortality.

    ...you may inherit diseases or be subject to family karma in some sudden and perilous manner.

    Pluto on the Descendant

    There is great danger under this line and the battle of selfhood is with a hostile world that seems intent on extinguishing you. ... There is some possibility that you can change world opinion, lay your life on the line for heroic objectives, but there is, all in all, too much danger her for prolonged residence. You are drawn to people with whom relationship is intensely sexual and/or combative, and there is a desperation born of fear of always being alone.

    ~ ~ ~

    Pluto ... Hell, astrologers and clients of astrologers are quite aware of the strong connection.

    I and another RJ member were attracted to one another.

    We checked our astrological composite chart and found Pluto - Gate of Hell opposing our Moon:

    Moon Opposition Pluto

    The opposition of composite Moon and Pluto is an aspect of extreme emotional intensity, calling forth great involvement and strong feelings.

    If improperly handled, this combination can give rise to extreme jealousy, struggles for dominance, and excessive possessiveness. As a result, one of you may completely strangle the other's individuality, or at least attempt to do so. If this occurs, the one being dominated will find it very hard to deal with, because the tactics used to dominate will be subversive rather than direct.

    The power of this aspect can lead to emotional violence, which could destroy the relationship and leave much bad feeling in its wake. If you are tempted to use these tactics, don't. Be as straightforward and direct as possible. The results will probably be better than you imagine, and at least they will be less destructive.

    If you are the victim of such methods by your friend or partner, be direct and call your friend's bluff. Don't allow yourself to be the victim of any kind of emotional blackmail.

    We agreed we didn't want to go through that hell.

    Super Cool.

    Rodin's the man!

    I'm sure I saw this at the Met Museum (NYC) sometime between 1982 and 2009.

    (So, it was 1983.)

    I saw Rodin's original Gates to Hell in Paris museum. It is huge, "scary as hell", and intimidating. That's what he wanted to convey.

    I'd be down to see it. Especially since there's no such thing as hell.
