TO CONSIDER 2012
August 5, 2012

Late 14c., from O.Fr. considerer (13c.) “reflect on, consider, study.” From L. considerare “to look at closely, observe,” perhaps lit. “to observe the stars,” from com- “with” (see com-) + sidus (gen. sideris) “constellation.” (see sidereal). Perhaps a metaphor from navigation, but more likely reflecting Roman interest in divination by astrology.
To Consider and to be Considerate:
To study and reflect and then align oneself with the stars,with the beauty and heart of the heavens (the essential goal of astrology), with the radiant will of Sprit and the Divine.
