Woman Friends...

Our Best Allies

An Astrological Perspective
It took me many years to realize the importance of women friends. I had always found relating to men more comfortable and easy. (Of course they are. Women are complicated, weepy, needy and boring!)

It wasn’t until I was about 29 years old when I met the most remarkable woman. Her name is Sandy. After meeting Sandy, I truly experienced what it meant to have a woman friend. She was the first woman whom I respected. She was strong, yet gentle, intense, and a marvelous healer.

Qualities that I needed to have in my first woman friends. She was also a mother, an artist and a wife. She taught me that it was safe to trust women. This was something I had never experienced before. Since Sandy, I have developed so many wonderful Women friends. It has been truly a remarkable road to recovering a deep sense of sisterhood.

Today’s article is about understanding “transformation” through the planet Pluto. In the astrological system we have 10 wonderful teachers. These are the ten planets that we can see from the Earth. They are the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Each of these planets have something to teach us. We also have in astrology the 12 constellations from Aries to Pisces. Our article today is primarily focused on the planet Pluto, our planetary teacher of transformation and death.

What is Pluto?
Pluto is archetypically associated with transformation, power, intensity, passion, and change. Pluto is connected in mythology to the God Hades. Hades was the ruler of the underworld. The story goes that when you died you went to Pluto's kingdom _ the Underworld. Death is also associated with Pluto, but not in the usual way. Death marked a Change or Transformation. Transformation means, “A marked change, as in appearance or character, usually for the better.” Today we will focus on the idea of transformation.

Prosperities

can only be

enjoyed by them

who fear

not at all

to lose them.

-- Jer. Taylor.

 Everyone has his or her own idea about prosperity. The dictionary defines prosperity as: “ The condition of being prosperous.” And prosperous is defined as: “Having success; flourishing.” With the extreme fear and concern about the economy right now I decided to focus this article on Prosperity Consciousness. Here is what my research found.

A FIFTH of the world's population lives on a dollar a day. More than a third are illiterate, and more than a hundred million have no access to basic health care, sanitation, or education. They make up a worldwide underclass whose continued deprivation defies the global rush toward prosperity that has otherwise defined much of this century. Today in the West and in parts of Asia living standards are at unprecedented high levels, but for 80 percent of the world's people, that prosperity remains elusive: they continue to earn less than 20 percent of the world's income.

Today’s article is about how to understand “habits” through the planet Saturn. In the astrological system we have 10 wonderful teachers. They are the ten planets that we can see from the Earth. They are the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Each of these planets have something to teach us. We also have in astrology the 12 constellations from Aries to Pisces. Today’s focus is on the planet Saturn, our planetary teacher of habits.

What is Saturn ?
Saturn is archetypically associated with discipline, patience, responsibility, habits, limitation and time. Saturn is connected in mythology to the God Chronos. Chronos has been known as Father Time for at least the past three thousand years. Hence we have the word chronological, which means, “arranged in order of time of occurrence” or “to put things in order.” There are many mythological stories regarding Saturn and Chronos. In this article we will focus on the idea of time.

The Cosmic Clock

Sept - Oct 2002

 

I have always been aware of time. Even as a young girl I was aware of time and how it worked. One of the most distinct things I remember was how time passed relative to what I was doing. When I was doing something I didn’t want to do I noticed how time seemed to go by very, very slowly. And when I was really excited about something I noticed how time would just fly by and I would wonder, “Where did the time go?”

I remember the first time I went into a clock shop. How fascinating it was to see so many clocks in one place. I could feel the pressure of each clock ticking away reminding me that time was precious and that there was “only so much time in a day.”
