Every sign in the zodiac can be associated with a mythological story and every planet with a divine figure, a “god” with certain properties.

Forces of Destiny

The Forces of Destiny: Reincarnation, Astrology and Karma, is an interesting read, although there isn’t too much astrology. What it does contain is lots of thought-provoking information on how Fate and Destiny play out in our lives. Here is a quote from the book as an example of its content: When I took the diploma of the Faculty of Astrological Studies, I had to discuss in an essay the dilemma between fate and free will. At the time, the issues […]

The Red Planet: Mars

The Sun formulates our goals: Mars pursues them. Through Mars, we learn to act as independent and self-sufficient beings and project ourselves into the world. Mars will give us the courage to stand up for our rights to assert ourselves and express our anger when necessary. The red planet describes what we want from life, and corresponds to our basic drives and motivations. Mars is concerned with self-assertion. To assert oneself is to declare one’s interests, to affirm, to be […]
