Astro-Fitness: Who Does The Gadgets?

Filed in Aquarius

Twins Sci Fi Art

My friend Aqua-Girl was really amazed the other night (and she is reasonably  unshockable) when i said i did not have scales. SHE has a full body scan fat monitor device that measures bone density, fat percentage, metabolic age, weight and a whole pile of other things. It is basically a computer in her bathroom and the technology is such that it would have been impossible a few years ago. It can wirelessly send info to her scheduler online, instruct her in how many kilojoules she requires that day & talk to her heart  monitor wristwatch.

I asked, for a joke, if it could connect with her Lucid Dreaming REM Goggles & she looked instantly alert & then made several notes in her iPhone (which also connects with the Heart Monitor & bathroom bone scanner) which i presume have something to do with her intent to somehow hot-wire the lucid dreaming goggles up to the other Personal Wellness Devices.

Oh and while we are on gadgets, she also has some brand of Swedish personal massager (am not going to see V word in case get blocked by some peeps with work browser thingies) that is so technologically advanced that it bought her to tears (of joy) the first time she used it. Aqua-Girl IS a multiple-Conjunct Aquarius – Sun, Mercury, Venus and Ascendent all trined by Pluto in Libra. But still…is this an Aquarian thing?

Well – I’m a virgo too – and I love the idea of bath friendly – Hygeine being next to Godessness!!
Personally I like bon fide medical products e.g. TENS with special probes for personal areas really does it for me . My virgo girlfriend is a gadget lover also…..

I have 5 planets in Aqarius, but do not own any bathroom scales. Focus entirely on ones skin bag is such a small picture scenario. Embracing technology is only one part of the Aqua make up. What is more relevant is the big picture re humanity , the planet, the universe and everything Non?

my rush of pulse and crazed stare, when promoting gadgets must work a treat ~ so many peeps i know have sinced purchased these wonder scales and a heart rate monitor. i’m deathly passionate about wellbeing and love fitness and i use these computers to chart my progress….not really to hem me in under a size zero or to stop me from eating pannacotta. i use my scales to measure my muscle mass first and foremost – i actually want my numbers to increase…..and that’s the same with my vo2 max reading. i’m mad for heart health and my motivation… Read more »

Yes it isn’t solely about what you look like it’s function & functioning, just like gadgets.

Love the link :).

I was wondering if the ‘personal massager’ was LELO… I concur. Lily.

EVERYTHING is more interesting than VacUUm cleaning.

WE LOVE OUT MAC’S:):)
It’s a 20 year exploration for me. Today i said ‘i know/understand 100th of it after
3 years (macbook).
It is a lifetime of creativity at my fingertips.
Stats said it would take thousands 0f years to read all on the net w/o sleeping.

How supberb AAC, it is said it takes 20 years to play the violin. Love anything that takes
‘sacred practise’ & disipline.
Accolades to you.
Barbarella eat your heart out:)

I love quirky but useful gadgets. 6th house Gem Sun with Sag Asc. I have a robot vacuum cleaner. Best investment I ever made!

One of those circular vacuums (oh how I love that double ‘u’!) that slowly whizzes around the house, bouncing off walls, sedately sucking up the discarded scum of daily life while you’re off doing more interesting things?

I would have guessed Geminis (my one-year-old nephew adores cell phones, digital cameras, cordless telephones etc.) and Virgos (my husband and also my best friend at work have all the newest gadgets: computer screens that turn 360°, a cell phone which answers to three different numbers from different companies and countries, a pocket translater that doubles as GPS etc.)…

I agree (Aquarius Sun Mercury and Mars), I like gadgets and toys that help be creative as well as making things efficient. So like I will only get an iPhone when they can double as a huge iPod so that way I don’t need my iPod AND a phone, it can be all in one. At this stage I won’t because I think iPhones are somewhat pretentious at the moment and don’t have enough room to store my entire music collection. Also, things don’t need to be shiny and new for me either. They have to be able to enhance… Read more »

I love gear and gadgets, especially of the communications variety, though not anywhere near as much as Ex-Mr CBA (also Aqua Sun & Merc) who holds a techie job and needs special gear for every jaunt off around the world.

Sun and Merc in Aqua.

Snap! My hot-as-hell faux leopard-skin jeans are the yardstick. If they are too tight at waist level, its time to cut down on the ginger-snaps. Have NEVER owned a pair of scales and have no intention of doing so. Weigh myself when at the doctors. Last time I had a set of scales available was when I lived with my parents (over 25 yrs ago). And those scales were in the woolshed. Common sense, not gimmicks, are key to diet and weight, I reckon. I like to spend some time trying to get in touch with what my body needs.… Read more »

I do like the clothing yardstick theory. not good with scales – i can weigh the same and either be a size too big for my favourite things, or a taut (ish) fit-freak…

omg. the hitachi is legendary and you plug it in the wall! whoa…. and i’ve also heard really good things about something called the eroscillator – recommended by dr ruth.

yep, i like gadgets

I love a personal massager as much as the next girl (especially the Hitachi Magic Wand, holy moly), but never bother with scales. My pants fit or they don’t, that’s all I need to know. No planets in Aqua.

Sagg here. Capricorn Merc, Sagg Venus, Pisces Rising, Aries Moon – blah blah blah. I think I’ve ranted about this previously somewhere on Mystic but here we go again… I just don’t get gadgets. Well, I kind of do. I haven’t weighed myself in years and years and years because numbers, people: our lives are ruled by numbers. It’s just awful. But also, I just do NOT trust that whole body fat scales thing. I’ve been doing boot camp with the same group of women for six months now and at the end of every month they all get on… Read more »

Hasn’t anyone pointed out that muscle weighs more? You lose fat, but put on weight cos you’ve built muscle? This is where the clothes test works, not the scales….. And don’t get me started on BMI….. its an irrelevant, dangerous tool.

aqua-girl
aqua-girl

i agree too on the BMI – always come close to anorexic on that chart.
i don’t see monitoring fat and muscle mass though, especially if you do strength train and wanna maintain muscle percentage as your metabolism slows as you get older.

aqua-girl
aqua-girl

sorry….don’t see monitoring fat and muscle as fanatical or nonsensical, i mean.

As a sun & multiple Aries stellium chick I love gadgets. We Aries love anything NEW, cutting-edge & novelty-esque.. So MM pls cough up with the link to Swedish love machine thingie already! 😉

One of my Aries brothers (quiet one) has a gadget fetish, especially car related no matter how naff. Other Aries brother, loud one, loves to pull apart anything, when reassembling them they are either had it or work perfectly for years.

Yes! But not bathroom scales thingy (dislike gym, regimented exercise) prefer physical work & sport.

I’d like all my electrical appliances (TV, compy, ipod, soundock even coffee machine lol etc) be wireless and hooked up to my Mac & controlled from it and my ipod. I love discovering new gadgets even blokesworld gadgets interests me & gadgets from days of yore (Kataka moon).

Aqua sun, venus & mercury.

Aqua Sun, Aqua Merc,

LOVE gadgets, esp. electronic gadgets, especially ones that sync with everything else. I had a gadget water bottle that tracked how much water I drank during the day and compared to a specifically-calculated target amount.

The appeal lies in the data collection and the potential for precision measurement.

i totally love gadgets and have no aqua whatsoever AFAIK. but yes, the appeal does lie in the data collection and the encouragement and validation and precision, yea aquamaide you so get it!!

aqua-girl

precisely!!….. i love you ladies!
that’s exactly how i sold it to Mystic – it’s like having your own personal trainer and yes, you get trophies too on your heart rate monitor 🙂

I have no scales or electronic gadgets….barely know how the computer works !…..no planets at all in Aqua…electronic gadgetry feels somewhat menacing to me ( Scorpio Sun )

Because Scorps go with ancient memory & techie is NEW.

No scales or gadgets for me (Fish rising). I do have a heart rate monitor/watch thingy from the years with the mad Aqua personal trainer but only used it years ago when first training for long distance running to pace myself. Mad Aqua PT is gadget mad – loved the scary calipers to measure body fat – yuck. I’m with AAC and Aello, go by clothes.

I don’t know about the other gadgets, but the swiss one? Tears of joy? A link might be in order Mystic if you can get one.

Yep, if you have to up-size your clothes you need to down-size the food and go for a walk.

Maybe my Aqua-less-ness explains why my fat-measuring scales haven’t had a battery for years and why my pedometer lives in a drawer. Fitness gadgets (and fitness jags themselves) are only ever a flirtation for me.

Totally in awe of your aerial and pole feats.

Those multiple Aqua’s are around 44 -46 ish years of age?
Didn’t that happen in the 60’s, the age of Aquarius?

fluid feline

I think that was multiple Virgo Pegs – Uranus conj Pluto mid 60’s. Saturn in Aqua around ’63 me thinks. I’ve got a multiple Aqua girl (11) with Neptune/Merc/Uranus/Sun all close together in Aqua. And she a science/techno genius.
