Looking at life through the cycles of her life as explored in Wisdom in Retrospect
Ninth cycle – Speaking in my own right; reaping the rewards of my hard work. The cycles have continued to follow an established pattern that I recognized through astrology. I have not been disappointed. I knew that in this cycle I would reap the rewards of my many years of hard work. I was finally ready to speak with my own voice of authority and present my own ideas and concepts; whether others agreed with me or not.

Continuing my travels throughout this cycle……
Eighth Cycle – With renewed vision and understanding, I expanded all of my horizons. In my previous cycle I cleared away much of what hadn’t been working for me or had lay stagnant over the years. Many people and groups left my life. Old patterns and beliefs were released and I stepped away from religion. I had made space for the new to enter. I was different and I felt differently. It was time to apply the newly refreshed me to living. This was a cycle of travel, learning, and exploring other philosophies

Seventh Cycle – Insights, endings, transformation and new beginnings. When I originally divided my life into nine year cycles, this was the cycle that stood out clearly. I initially named it Scorpio because the symbolism of the scorpion embraces death, rebirth and transformation. Many things left my life during these years, to make way for all the new that would arrive in the next cycle.
