"Pongáio" was the name my Aunt Mona gave to a long, green, cool room where we gathered at her home —
replete with comfy chairs, a rocker, sewing machine, sewing goods, beautiful beads, shelves, books, bibelots, photographs, odds'n'ends, mementos of a life, treasures —
a gathering of all the useful & 'useless' things that so make life a pleasure.

Pluto: distant and dark, but powerful

Dear Jonathan,
Some astrologers believe that, because Pluto is practically beyond the reach of sunlight, it has no influence. It is, they say, 'in a cave'. Would you agree?

Dear Adil,
Pluto's governs whatever people put 'in a dark place'. As individuals (and as nations) we have fears, resentments, obsessions and compulsive behaviour patterns. These are things that we simply cannot fully recognise in ourselves, far less be objective about. Yet the contents of our 'cave' can have an enormous influence on our lives. Pluto may be small dark and distant but it is a very powerful force.
