For the Very Plutonic Among Us

 A reader sent me these words which we both agreed might well describe those with Pluto aspects to inner planets.

“God speaks only to the oldest souls, the ones most experienced in living and suffering.  ‘You shall belong to no-one and to nothing, to no party, to no majority, to no minority, to no society except in that it serves me at my altar. You shall not belong to your parents, nor to your wife and children, nor to your brothers and sisters, nor to them who speak your language, nor to those who speak any other — and least of all to thine own self. You shall belong only to me in this world.”

The reader was reminded of Liz Greene’s description that those who are Plutonic have to channel the collective.   

Franz Werfel’, the author of these lines from ‘Theologumena’, was a Czech-born poet, playwright, and novelist, whose central themes were religious faith, heroism, and human brotherhood. He married Mahler’s widow who, at the time they met was living with Gropius. 

Werfel’s best-known works include The Forty Days of Musa Dagh (1933), a classic historical novel that portrays Armenian resistance to the Turks, and The Song of Bernadette (1941). The latter book had its start when Werfel, a Jew escaping the Nazis, found solace in the pilgrimage town of Lourdes, where St. Bernadette had had visions of the Virgin. Werfel made a promise to “sing the song” of the saint if he ever reached the United States. He died in California in 1945.
