AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) Have you been having problems with someone, either in person or online? If things have been rather tense, now's the time to swallow your pride and start communicating and compromising.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Are matters involving home, family, domestic arrangements, parents or property dominating your thinking? Things will gradually improve, as long as you stay centred and keep an open mind.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Work projects are favoured, as you make the most of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus visiting your career zone. Creativity and motivation are high but try to keep a sense of perspective.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Party-loving Lions are keen to socialise and circulate; mix and mingle; imagine and create; as you let your hair down and have some fun. But it's Equinox day so try not to overdo things!
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You're thinking about a financial, business or work project as today's planetary patterns help you tackle tasks with extra energy and enthusiasm. But things won't happen overnight!
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Open and honest communication is the secret to success at the moment. There'll be plenty of opportunities to expand your peer group. But don't neglect your long-term friends in the process.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) The planetary patterns give tired Taureans a welcome energy surge today. The stars also favour some quiet contemplation, as you use your intuition to help you solve a current problem.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) You're in the mood to help a loved one through a rough patch, or cheer up a close friend who is down-in-the-dumps. If you get drawn into a fiery discussion, strive to be balanced and fair-minded.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Scorpio is the sign of extremes, and you can have trouble relaxing. As we celebrate the Equinox - when day and night are of equal length - strive to bring more balance into your busy life.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) It's time to get talking with your nearest and dearest about subjects you may not necessarily feel comfortable about. Try to be fair and balanced, as you view things from differing perspectives.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Business ventures are brewing at the moment, as you combine common sense with intuition to achieve a positive result. Don't be impatient though. Your dreams will take a while to manifest.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Are you being too subjective about a current issue? Take a step back, adjust your focus, and strive to view the situation from a much broader and wiser perspective. Balance is the key.
when someone is five, their cognitive ability is not fully developed, neither is their worldview, at the age of ten a child's cognitive ability is greater and their worldview wider, but still they lack the experiences someone twice or four times their age has, infact your not done growing, learning, and "maturing" until your about 20-25.
comparing people "judging" you based off of your minimal life experience and age to someone being judged by the color of their skin shows how young and immature you are, your making the case against yourself so to speak.
judging someone because they were born black, or asian, or hispanic, or white, or arab is incontrovertibly wrong, it is disregarding all the knowledge, experience, compassion, respect, love, and kindness a person might have and instead just seeing the worst of what you think they are.
comparing what you think your going through to that is laughable at best, and narcissistic at worst, but thats the thing, you cant fault a child for that, all children are naturally narcissistic till they learn to explore the reality that other people are as real as them.
and fyi vilot, you said in the olden days, but that too is false young one, many great atrocities are committed in the name of race, religion, and nationality to this day. racism is still going on, and not just in small ways.

The author Mark Twain made this observation on age:-
"When I was very young my father was an idiot! But a strange thing happened. The older I got, the wiser he got!"
I don't think it can be said better than that!
If someone came on this site and started talking to you about magic and telling you things about magic. Then you find out this person has never even studied or practiced magic in his life. You wouldnt take what he said to heart.
Same applies to age. At younger ages you have yet to experience things that others have..so they most likely will judge you on your age in that way.
Though i know some of this doesnt apply to certain things..some younger people have experienced more hardships than older ones.
All this aside...age is not what people are judged on most in this world anyways. Color of your skin, how much money you have, your style, your weight. These things are judged more in today's society, and judged more harshly.
I personally judge people on every piece of information I can get on them. Of course children are inexperienced, that's why they have guardians. Additionally, experience itself doesn't make you wise, rather, HOW you experience something, and how you apply said experinece. Chronological age is very useful in determining how to approach a person, I would not hesitate to use it.
Vilot, this is clearly you carrying over your frustration from a previous thread about your age and joining the Council of the Seven Doves.
I believe in giving everyone the benefit of a doubt and giving them a chance to prove themselves, but this is not helping your cause. If you truly want to show that age is simply a number, why not try showing what you know around the forums? Or better yet, join a coven and, as a member, provide and offer information to assist your fellow site and/or coven members. If the coven Priest/Priestess believe that you are appropriate for a council position then they will award it to you. You can't join a coven and expect to be handed a position. You must, like with all other things in life, earn it.
You say you're knowledgeable and know a good deal about magic and the like, but I've not once seen you prove this in the forums or offer any useful information to the site. Perhaps you should do this and see if views change.
