Astrological Martian Manifesto

(the following is taken directly from the book A Woman in Your Own Right   written by Anne Dickson - and obviously she didn't call them the Martian Manifesto. But these are a list of rights that Ms. Dickson felt we each have by virtue of being alive and living on this planet.) (Buy it now at Amazon.com)

1. I have the right to state my own needs and set my own priorities.

2. I have the right to be treated with respect as an intelligent, capable and equal human being.

3. I have the right to express my feelings.

4. I have the right to express my opinions and values.

5. I have the right to say yes or no for myself.

6. I have the right to ask for what I want.

7. I have the right to change my mind.

8. I have the right to make mistakes.

9. I have the right to decline responsibility for other people's problems.

10. I have the right to deal with others without being dependent on them for approval.

Obviously, folks - it's easier to give ourselves "permission" to assert some of these rights than it is others. We each have our own individual struggles on the Journey.

Weary and Wary
Yet I grow weary (and wary) of a common, prevailing attitude that says:
If one is truly "spiritual and evolved," then one should have:

No hint or expression of anger

No aggression or asserting of our own will (i.e. Mars).

And that anger (Mars) is always some sort of evil demon that must be categorically exorcised from our lives...

Denying, burying and/or stuffing inside the warrior energies of Mars - almost guarantees you'll be making plenty of regular stops at The Mars Do Drop In Saloon (both in your dreams and in the people you meet).

Denying the Warrior energies of Mars forces the people around you to carry your anger for you...

Transcending The Ego
Further, didn't ya know that It's crucial to have a healthy, well formed sense of "ego" (and who you are in this world),
before you can continue on in The Journey toward Wholeness. To have an ultimate goal of transcending the "ego" and into your "Higher Self" - you first have to have an "ego" to transcend...

You've gotta have an ego, in order to transcend an ego.

Of course, that's just my opinion... (Martian Manifesto Right Number 4)
