Housework fights breast cancer

I can’t wait til the evangelicals get their hands on this. At first I thought was at the very least a joke, or at worst a conspiracy on the part of the patriarchy to send women back to the dark ages of household drudgery:

The researchers analysed data on work, leisure and housework activity levels among 218,169 women aged 20 to 80 from nine European countries including the UK.

They followed the women for an average of 6.4 years, during which time 3,423 developed breast cancers. When all forms of activity were combined, being active appeared to offer a protective effect only to post-menopausal women.

However when the results were examined in more detail it was found that women who did the most housework had significantly reduced risks while work- and recreation-based activity had less effect.

From a psychospiritual viewpoint, the breasts represent nurturing and caring for children and loved ones. In astrological symbolism the Moon represents both the way that we nurture others as well as the way we were nurtured ourselves, there is no separation between the two. In my work with clients I have seen women with breast cancer history who have a stressed Moon in their chart, although I have seen a greater number of women with stressed Moons that do not have breast cancer.

Metaphysicians like Louise Hay have suggested that breast cancer is connected to care of others and neglect of the self but I wonder in light of this study whether the connection may have more to do with an imbalance in the nurturing process rather than simple self-neglect. The fact that it was housework in particular and not just physical activity or exercise that reduced […]

The Passing of Gerald Ford

The death of Gerald Ford is bringing up a lot of interesting emotions. Ford was ridiculed frequently for his habit of falling down, a quirk memorialized by Chevy Chase in Saturday Night Live) and he brought us the dreaded twosome Cheney and Rumsfeld, but the incompetence in the White House of the last six years has made Ford look good. Now it appears that he told journalist Bob Woodward that the invasion of Iraq was a mistake and that Cheney was a good Chief of Staff but made a bad Vice President. (An interesting revelation considering that Mercury (information) was conjunct Pluto (secrets) when the contents of this interview was disclosed.)

Unfortunately, Ford wanted his comments kept secret until after his death. Ford was a Cancer who cared for those he loved, and his Mercury was opposed by Uranus and squared by Mars which shows that he kept his own counsel and was not easily swayed by others. Perhaps his advanced age (he was 93) kept him from speaking out against the current administration or perhaps it was the Cancer loyalty to his party. Either way, it’s tragic to think how different the world would be if those who now disagree with the present White House would have spoken up sooner.

Keith Urban’s latest setback

This saddens me – I feel this guy has so much potential but he’s locked in a prison of pain. National Ledger has my post on this (turn on your popup blockers!).

Looking back at 2006: An Astrological Perspective

2006 offered some powerful astrological challenges that were reflected in the world around us. Beginning in late 2005 a powerful Grand Cross involving Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune and Mars in fixed signs created explosions, tensions, riots and conflicts that continued into January.

Then in February Saturn and Chiron moved into opposition, forcing a crisis (Saturn) of healing (Chiron) that exposed fissures in the US government, the Islamist movements, the immigrant populations all over the world. This opposition was the culmination of a series of oppositions between these two that occurred between 1986 and 1994 – 27 in all!! Chiron exposes the wounds in the structures of our society (Saturn) and encourages us to heal these wounds rather than run from them.

Saturn was also connected by square to Jupiter throughout 2006, beginning in December and ending in October. The struggle between Jupiter’s expansion and optimism and Saturn’s restriction and need for discipline created an erratic political season as well as a roller coaster in the world’s financial markets. This was exacerbated by the continuing square between Jupiter and Neptune between January and September created confusion (Neptune) between our hopes and optimism (Jupiter) and the realities that we faced via Saturn and Chiron.

Fortunately during this period Jupiter also made a trine to Uranus, helping to add a new dimension (Uranus) to our ideas and the way we find meaning in our lives (Jupiter). Rather than get bogged down in explosive violence there has been a slow but steady move towards progress in global issues.

Over the summer we had six planets in retrograde motion, creating a need to continually look back and re-do projects we thought were completed; reinvestigate situations that […]
