Friendship: A Planetary Fairytale



The planets in our solar system are again talking with each other as they pass by close enough in their orbits. Each planet has a concern to express, while other planets orbiting too close to hear what was said try to offer advice and comfort.

As each planet expresses his or her thoughts, we learn that planet’s characteristics, some from astronomy and some from astrology.

The relative sizes and colors of the planets and the orbit of each of them in relationship to the others teach young readers simple facts about the astronomy.

Then it is from the content of what each planet says and how it is expressed that the young reader can begin to understand a very basic interpretation of how that planet’s theme and meaning is used in astrology. The subtle facial expressions of each planet as he or she speaks or listens also add to understanding of the astrology.
