About Glenda, looking at life through the cycles of her life as explored in Wisdom in Retrospect

Sixth Cycle – Learning about myself through relationships.  By the beginning of this cycle my zealous religious involvement had slowed and almost ended.  Looking backwards, there was an obvious beginning and end to those all but fanatical years of living out my religious beliefs.  This new cycle would take me in a different direction all together and herald a new era in my life.
1984-1992
Age 37 to 45

January 1984/ February 93
Domestic Manager/Housekeeper of a 200 bed nursing complex.


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.

Uluru.  With respect we share the earth.


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

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.
