The Coming of the Three Astrologers …
By Christmas when they read a version of the Gospels that actually referred to the Wise Men as astrologers, I felt I’d found my own Bethlehem Star.
I still sing liturgical music in the shower and other places. (My ex-altar-boy husband is never sure when I may burst into a requiem. At least he understands the Latin.) One of my favorite Masses is Haydn’s Theresienmesse, which, ironically, I learned while singing in the Unitarian Choir.
This Jupiter Journey brought me many unexpected gifts, including the one I longed for most—coming to terms with my childhood religion and my pain of not feeling I could be part of something that formed me to the core. The bottom line is still the same. I’m not comfortable being there. But my viewpoint and feelings about it are completely different—that’s how Jupiter impacts us.
