Lao-Tzu - Planets: Pluto & Vulcan
Celeste Korsholm <[email protected]>
Lao-Tzu, the Chinese philosopher of 600 B.C., is considered the founder of Taoism. Little is actually known about his life. It is said that he was born a peasant under a plum tree and became the court historian during the Chou dynasty. After many years he left behind the corruption of court life and quietly rode his blue ox into the mountains, never to be seen again. He left only one obscure text expressing his ideas of the Taoist "Way," (detachment, nonjudgment, nonaction).
Lao-Tzu represents both Pluto and Vulcan, the planets farthest and from nearest to the sun. He contributes detached wisdom to the Planetary Council.
