Letters from Mars: An Apology

Dear John,

I'm writing to tell you that you haven't received an anniversary gift from us up here because of my conduct.

During a meeting of the planets last week, in which we were supposed to discuss an appropriate way to celebrate this important occasion, I shot off my mouth and upended the entire meeting with my boorish behavior. Eventually, order was restored, but we were unable to come to a consensus; consequently, the occasion passed without any action from us, for which I am extremely contrite.

While my fundamental nature of my conduct is apparent--"marauder / bully of the astrological planets" is a title that I must sadly accept--I am disappointed that it had a negative impact on our ability to celebrate you and your lovely wife. 

I am especially upset because you're one of my people...I'm the almuten of your chart, and as such occupy the most real estate. While Saturn might dispute my rulership of your chart, I am responsible for what has happened, and hope to make it up to you at some point.

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.




  1. Thank you Mars for being so honest, now please step aside and let someone nicer take over.

    1. You're absolutely right, Cheryl. Stick around and see what happens next! :)
