About Jupiter Remembered
Jupiter Remembered tells the story of one woman’s journey toward understanding
the meaning of her life. She explores the qualities of her relationships,
the patterns she has co-created, and the resources
that have accompanied her along the pathways of her life.
There is love and insight written throughout its pages, which was gleaned
from her spiritual nature, belief in her origin from a distant world, the Diaspora
experiences of her family from Russia and Egypt, her practice in the healing arts,
and the joy of teaching. Her discovery of astrology fifteen years ago has become a solid and stable companion, accompanying her on her quest - illuminating the way.
"It is difficult to comprehend the inner depth that Myra Darwish went to share her feelings about her life. I found this memoir to be filled with so many events that I have also experienced in my life, and so I was able to relate to most everything that she wrote. I have the greatest respect for Myra for the way she has lived her life, loved her family and become such a contributing member of our society. She followed her heart at all times with such clarity and great results for her and her family. I am so happy to have read this book". NaplesQueen

"As an artist begins her most treasured work, she uses life as the palette and love as the canvas; she is after all, re-creating her reality. It is the experiences of her life that she will draw from: those remembered, those forgotten, those judged, and those she has let go - they will present themselves to her whether she wants them to or not, in a most perfect and timely way."
