You might or might not have noticed the complete lack of updates on this site since June, a time frame that coincided with the second peak of the transit of Pluto to my Libra Sun. Regrettably, instead of writing a blog post, I simply stated my intention of taking a break with a post on Aeternalight Astrology’s Facebook page, which resulted in, well, most of you being unaware of the reason behind my silence, and quite a few of you asking me if I was ok.
The symbol of the Cornucopia, or “horn of plenty”, which – among other things – has come to be recognized as a symbol for Thanksgiving holiday, has close mythological ties with the figure of Zeus, the Greek counterpart of Jupiter.
