      Thanks for posting this Cristina! I enjoyed it, and it makes me now
      want to re-examine this, since I had aligned the Aslan character
      himself with the Sun (Son, i.e. Christ) and the kingly energies are
      also present in the Sun's sign of Leo. I thought the Queen however
      was quite Saturnian in nature - cold, unrelenting, rigid and
      definitely not sentimental. Also, Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn
      and Aquarius, which in the Northern Hemisphere represent the coldest
      season. Leo is in the hottest part of the summer, and is opposite
      Aquarius on the zodiacal wheel. However, it didn't occur to me to
      seek ALL of the planetary influences in all of the stories - these are
      things that had just "hit" me without looking very hard, and just in
      the first story! Thanks again!

      I am at this time more immersed in Tolkien's Legendarium, particularly
      the publishings after Tolkien's death, and (of course) finding many
      correlations with not only planetary energies, but cosmology
      similarities in general. However, I am not so sure it was
      "deliberate" on Tolkien's part because it is so vast and intricately
      detailed. I am sure his sources were many, and his ability with
      language likely helped him understand different levels of ancient
      texts not readily reachable without such skills.
