The Northern Claw

Hello, I'm Zubeneschamali.

I'm forty seven, a family man, a Science Fiction reader with an interest in cars, astronomy, DIY and gardening (as long as it doesn't involve mowing lawns).

My Member Name is also the name of the star Beta Librae, the brighter of the two brightest stars in the constellation Libra, which is my Astrological birth-sign1, connection enough for me. The name means "The Northern Claw", as these two stars were seen by the namers as the Northern and Southern claws of Scorpio, which these days is considered the constellation next door to the East.

1Note that the Sun was not, in fact, in Libra on the date of my birth, but next door to the West in Virgo! Those wacky Astrologers!
