Great perils have this beauty, that they bring to light the fraternity of strangers. Victor Hugo
Forsake not an old friend, for the new is not comparable unto him. A new friend is as new wine: when it is old thou shalt drink it with pleasure. Ecclesiasticus
There is no stronger bond of friendship than a mutual enemy. Frankfort Moore
The so-called lessons of history are for the most part the rationalizations of the victors. History is written by the survivors. Max Lerner
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. George Santayana
When the days of rejoicing are over, When the flags are stowed safely away, They will dream of another wild ‘War to End Wars’, And another wild Armistice day. Robert Graves
November’s Sagittarius new Moon occurs on November 22 in Australia and November 21 in the United States. This new Moon has a particularly ‘martial’ or ‘military’ feel to it, with the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Saturn and Uranus all having this tone or flavor. Also, the degrees that follow for some of the other planets, such as Mars and Neptune, also have military or martial tones to them. It is a very curious line-up of planets, but then there often is a theme of some sort that shines through – it is just that this is a very pointed theme. How we handle it may be a measure of our ability to stand strong with our belief in the goodness of life and that good things are unfolding – and exactly as they should be. Of course, many people are having a good time in their lives, but for those who are feeling rather tested or pushed, this could be a time of having to reconnect with one’s positive thoughts and feelings.
