Planet Buzz – Sustaining Inner Discipline

Sue Rose Minahan and her Planet Buzz panel join in for an insightful discussion about “Venus & Mars and Sustaining Inner Discipline.”

“The planets sit on each immediate side of the Earth and referred to as the ‘cosmic lovers’, Mythology tells of their mutual passionate attraction, creating their daughter, Harmonia. Her name surely reflects the best intention for love’s union. And the fact that these planets are on both sides of the Earth, gives a hopeful perspective for the best intentions of their metaphoric union. Called ‘personal planets’, we meet Venus through our valued desires, and we meet Mars through our choices of action,” Sue said.

Joining Talk Cosmos founding host Sue Rose Minahan in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii are Planet Buzz members Lesley Francis of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and Dr. Laura Tadd of Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia.

Talk Cosmos is your opportunity to ponder realms of what Carl Jung called the collective unconsciousness that’s shared through time to the present…all through the lens of Sue’s lifetime of peering into astrology.

“Thankfully, I discovered Evolutionary astrology. Its perspective points directly to our unique personal spiritual soul growth…driven by our aligned intentions. Its promising purpose of soul growth ignited an entirely alive Zodiac. Captured, I felt compelled to study the deep significance of astrological application,” said Sue.

Sue is your guide to focusing the Cosmos kaleidoscope. In the words of Einstein, “Energy’s never destroyed, energy only changes.”
