Christians will tell you that the story of Mary is true and that she was woman who gave birth to Jesus, who was conceived without Joseph’s help. If the scriptures, however, are not historically true, who or what was the woman named Mary based on? What’s the real story?
It seems these days that every metaphysically-minded person is saying we are in the Age of Aquarius. Well, putting aside the fact that many people believe Astrology is bunk, let’s examine the facts.
People declaring that the beginning of this Utopian Age was upon us goes back decades. Most notably, because of the “Summer of Love” many people said the Aquarian Age started in the 1960s. This was fueled by the hit musical play, Hair and its signature song, The Age of Aquarius.
The 12th house is a difficult one for many astrologers and students to understand and interpret. In traditional astrology, it represents institutions, illusion, and self-undoing. In its deepest, esoteric meaning, the 12th house is our journey to cosmic unity through dissolving the boundaries of time and space—object/subject—to return to the universal home from which we emerged.

Pluto is still in Capricorn (isn’t it there for fricken’ EVER) and it is doing battle in the skies to remake the mess humans have made of the world. It all started in 2008 and will continue through 2030, even after Pluto moves out of Capricorn in 2024. One referee in this turbulent time is the minor planet, Eris.
Eris is a newcomer to the astrology family. Named for the female counterpart to Mars, she is the goddess of war. Only discovered in 2005 and beyond Pluto, her wild elliptical orbit takes 558 years to go around the sun.
There are at least 40 house systems for astrologers to choose from. Although how the house systems are derived can be complex there are basically two classifications: Quadrant/Equal division, and Lunes/Semi-arc…..
