Queen Elizabeth I of England
Cleopatra and Marcus Antonius
(Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in Cleopatra)
How does the feminine translate between generations? Hypatia, the lady from Alexandria was highly regarded till invading philosophies criticized her adept insight into metaphysics and science. Queen Elizabeth the First, was necessarily called a virgin as she never married. Control over her body had to be interpreted according to her time in history. Cleopatra was destroyed in her failure to contain Mark Anthony, in the war with Octavian. Jewish mythology condemned Lillith for her independence. She was made to watch her children die.
Equality is an elusive concept. As is democracy.
We all have Neptune is our charts, and he represents illusion, creativity, and perspective. The tendency is always, that our egos place our talents and addictions in the number one position. This is necessary as the truly great writer, actor, painter, orator, etc., all need the focus of their vision to expose outdated patterns. Remember though History does repeat.
Women and men need the chemistry of each other. Interest in sex is just one of many elements of the interchangeable. Granted the chemistry one party feels, is not always reciprocated. This happens in every aspect of our lives. The Boss, the government, the restaurant or food we enjoy, our neighbors, our parents, and our children may all have ideas that are unacceptable to our generational and social habits.
The American revolution was a 26 year affair. It went from 1765-1791. In retrospect we can contain the spread of the time frames. Much unrest from 1765, then in 1775 the battles of Lexington and Concord. The defining moment of July 4, 1776 had Pluto, the annihilator or equalizer, in the sign of Cancer, like our Sun sign. Food, supplies and shelter were all in short supply. We are approaching this reoccurrence in July of this year. How will history perceive this time of universal unrest and innovation? For every advance in the physical world of medicine there is a throwback to the ancients. We know that fruit, vegetables, grains and meat can reconfigure our internal mechanisms in ways that pharmaceuticals do not.
The internet has made the world a whole lot smaller. But clarity is much more murky.
Progress is a process. But history does repeat itself.
