Saturn in Virgo: Organic Milk is Better

Cows by Tyler Larson

New research shows that cows eating an organic diet produce milk that contains more omega-3 and linoleic fatty acids that have been proven to improve human health. Plus, their milk tastes better.

Milk from organic cattle that eat a fresh grass diet is likely to be better for your health, according to a new study by the University of Newcastle

This organic milk contained more good fatty acids such as omega-3 and conjugated linoleic acid known as CLA9 than milk produced at intensive commercial dairy farms. The difference was even more marked during the summer with levels of CLA9 about 60 per cent higher in milk from cattle that graze in fields.

Gillian Butler, livestock project manager for the university’s Nafferton Ecological Farming Group, who led the research, said: “Our work has not looked at the impact on human health, but I would say organic milk should be better for health from what we know of the benefits of these good fatty acids. She added: “They are effective in combating cancer, coronary heart disease and type II diabetes.”

The study was a joint effort between scientists at Newcastle University and the Danish Institute for Agricultural Science and funded by the European Commission, a governmental body of the European Union.

The European Commission has funded other research into organic foods such as the Quality Low Input Food (QLIF) project which was initiated in March of 2004. But in the business-friendly United States, organic standards were degraded in 2006 to placate large corporate food producers nullifying a ban from the previous year on synthetic ingredients in food labeled organic.

You can’t tell me organic food doesn’t taste better than mass produced food – I […]

Saturn in Virgo and the Recent Abuse Epidemic

A reader emailed me a few months ago asking if there was a correlation between the rise of pet abuse cases and Saturn in Virgo and while I dismissed it at the time the recent news about abuse of small children by UN peacekeepers (Saturn = authority figures) caused me to rethink this connection.

Because Virgo breaks things down into parts and then analyzes them, along with the sixth house it is associated with relationships that involve unequal power (classically, “master servant” relationships or those between employers and employees). The Virgo nature is typically very fond and protective of children and small animals.

Saturn went into Virgo last fall, and since then there has indeed been a rash of animal abuse cases beginning with the arrest of sports star Michael Vick for dogfighting which resulted in the signing last week in Georgia of legislation officially banning that cruel sport from the state. In May, with Saturn stationing direct (virtually standing still as its motion changes from retrograde to forward) the news has been filled with large scale animal cruelty cases. Earlier this month rapper DMX was arrested in Phoenix for animal abuse that related to dogfighting. Hundreds of animals were rescued from a “puppy mill” operation in Minnesota.

And that’s just the animals – then we have the abominable case of Josef Fritzl which erupted at the end of April just before Saturn’s retrograde turn. And this week a study by Oxfam found rampant child sexual abuse among humanitarian workers around the world.

Clearly these events happened long before Saturn went into Virgo, but the planetary cycles create a catalyst that opens up the mass consciousness to be more receptive to certain qualities. It’s almost as if there’s a cosmic radio station that […]

Growing Up on Prozac

I was just listening to NPR in the car, and Talk of the Nation had a story called “Growing Up on Antidepressants” which interested me greatly and I’ve written on this subject before. There were several callers to the show who had been taking Prozac or similar drugs since they were in their teens, and they commented that when they stop taking the drug they don’t feel like themselves; they don’t feel that they can live a normal life.

Everyone experiences depression to some extent or another, but some people are more naturally prone to chronic depression. The astrology chart of a chronically depressed individual typically involves a strong influence of Saturn, Chiron or Pluto – each of these planets evokes a different brand of depression. A Saturnian depression is classically melancholic – there is a darkness and a heaviness to it. Chironic depression has a sharper and deeper painful quality due to the Chiron’s relentless pressure to bring old painful wounds to the psychological surface. Plutonic depression includes a dark despair and hopelessness; there is a sense of fatefulness and occasionally a longing for death.

Saturn by transit opposes its place in the birthchart at around age 14 and offers challenges to the development of the soul. If this process is interrupted by the ingestion of psychotropic drugs, this individual will not have an opportunity to develop the inner resilience that is the gift of Saturn. There is a saying, “That which doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” and this is Saturn’s mode of instruction. Those of us who have Saturn strong in their charts (Saturn is on my Sun) and have lived past the age of 40 recognize the Saturnian gifts: a deep inner strength and resolve that helps us […]

Astrology is better than therapy

This is what a client told me yesterday, and while psychotherapy is a great tool for change and healing and helped me tremendously, an understanding of the astrological chart goes right to the heart of the matter and identifies where the inner conflicts are coming from and describes how best to resolve them. “Suddenly I feel there’s a map that I can use for my life,” this client said, and she is exactly right.

Once we have identified those inner patterns, though, then it’s up to us to make the changes in our life that will help us to become more integrated, more aware, and happier in general. It mystifies me that astrology is not taught in schools, can you imagine if we learned in childhood that we didn’t have learning disabilities, it’s just that our minds work differently because we have Mercury in Pisces square Uranus. Or that the reason we have trouble committing to relationships is because our Venus is opposed by Pluto which engenders a deep fear of intimacy that we need to work with.

I’m so happy about the burgeoning astrology blogosphere which is bringing real astrology out into the mass media where the average person can learn more about what astrology really is and what it does for us. We do have a map – the map was given to us at the moment we were born, and it provides a guide and a weather forecast throughout our life. What an incredible blessing!!
