In the midst of what can only be described as planetary disorder – relentless bombardment of Ukraine, a pandemic still raging, explosive inflation, an almost successful coup in the greatest democracy of the world – it is worth pausing to acknowledge the serene celestial order arched over Orlando’s skyline: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn – all in a row every evening and early morning over the next two weeks. As the Greeks were all too fond of noting, we are just play things to the gods in the heavens above! After over 50,000 years, can sapiens not figure out how to get out of their own way?
