Cassini is a space probe that was launched in 1997. Its mission is to take pictures of Saturn, its moons and its rings. On April 27 Cassini started its final chapter, to dive between the rings and the planet, finally plunging into Saturn’s atmosphere on September 15, 2017. Real time data from the initial dive is helping scientists and engineers protect the spacecraft on the 21 trips through the rings of dust, rocks and ice formed from ancient meteor impacts. As Cassini flies through the rings not only will it teach us about the debris but also how to protect itself.
When I was a child, Saturn was my favorite planet. I used to draw it all the time. Now as I learn more about Saturn in astrology, its status as my favorite has been challenged. In astrology, Saturn is the planet of restrictions and limitations. Some astrologers even think that it represents karmic lessons from past lives.
Throughout our childhoods we are impacted by our surroundings with little control. This aspect of our experience creates the bad self talk that is in our minds, or our debris. Each time we dive into this detritus we become better at protecting ourselves, we get a better view of ourselves, and what is limiting us. Eventually, we become like Saturn. We can never fully discard the flotsam and jetsam of childhood but we can get it far enough away from us to make a beautiful, unique planet.

With any of these choices you will gain a new perspective on how you think.
