Meet and part
Meet and part
It’s torn my heart apart

The jagged thunder of the thrill
Has left my sky in shreds
The clouds are weeping
And rainbows are shattered Continue Reading »

I have a ninth house moon and north node and the quest for personal meaning is very important to me. I’ve been reading Jeff Brown’s extraordinary book, Soulshaping, and the author states meaning is essential in every one’s life.

Life is fleeting and once that realization fully dawns one’s quest for meaning becomes very intense. Anything can trigger that bone deep realization: being close to death, falling in love, having a child or even wanting to realize a dream.

But it’s not just life-changing events that lead us to ask searching questions and explore our hearts; a life turned dull will do it. When I am with 20 somethings who have so many desires and limited means, I always tell them, “The money will come.” It does, too. Look at people in their 30s. Hard work, expertise and persistence pays off and they have the affluent and well organized lives they wanted. But with this comes curtailed freedom, ever growing responsibilities, stress and a dearth of time. The song that sings in younger hearts gets muted and as we age, we are perpetually running on the proverbial hamster wheel: making more materialistically and yet feeling a growing sense of dissatisfaction.

Assuredly it doesn’t happen to everyone because there are those people who seem to have a perpetual glow, an unlimited fund of energy and enthusiasm for their work and their lives whether they are 30, 40, 50 or 60. And there are others whose lives are criss-crossed by boredom and stress followed by binges or anything that perpetuates a peak experience. But the peak experiences are rare and most of life just seems mundane, dull, without luster. A meaningless exercise in fact.

So what’s going on? Losing touch with the soul purpose. When you’re in touch with your soul purpose and keep it in the forefront of your consciousness, your life becomes magical, meaningful, delightful. And you can experience it anywhere, anytime, no matter what you do or who you are.

Although there are sets of activities (or occupations) that are associated with different signs, what is even more important is our stance towards life. The signs that are predominant in your chart hold the key. You can read the below for your sun, moon and ascendant. And if you’re familiar with astrology or your chart and know the key astrological themes that operate for you, read for those.

These are small reminders or mantras that’ll reconnect you with your soul purpose. They’ll align you with the reason for your incarnated and once that alignment happens, life becomes enchanting.

Aries: I am the new, the birth. I am spring. I am vigor and courage. And everywhere I go I bring courage. I am the pioneer. I am here to overcome obstacles and this is my gift to every situation and to the people I meet.

Taurus: I am stability and safety and comfort. I am endurance and persistence. I am of the earth and I am here to participate in its bounty. I remind others by my presence of these things and I stabilize everything I touch, everyone I meet. This is my gift to the world at every moment of my life.

Gemini: I am curiosity and mental engagement. I am a love for language and words. I am the eye that notices every shine and sheen and follows it. I am the spirit seeking to learn and explore the world around it. In every moment, with every one I meet, I give the gift of my verbal dexterity and the unending charm of a mind that never loses its yearning for more and that stays forever young.

I am Lilith

Fergie’s BLM aspects her Sun, Moon and Uranus. She’s one of our Lilith Goddesses…

I came here to get crazy

I was born to get wild, that’s my style

If you didn’t know that, well, baby, now you know now

-Fergie, Black Eyed Peas, The Dirty Bit

I was born free and I belong to no man. No man can own me or tame me but if you desire me, then engage me and if you have courage, follow me. I’m fun and danger and sporty mystique. I’m raunchy music and booze and smoke and late night sex.

I wield in my power openly and am spurned by humanity, I am sustained by my bond to the earth, my mother and to the sky, my father. I am the lone woman on the cliff with the wind blowing through her hair who exults in being alive. And when I come down from the top, will you have the courage to join me? Will you come with me into the night and take off everything and see how crazy we can get, how far we can push it? Continue Reading »

The Caduceus Cracked

He moves between heaven and earth

And even deeper into the shadowy realm

 

And I can work with him

And weave word spells

Or douse you in soft illusions

Or conjure a pun and amuse you.

 

 

I can work with him

And do all of that

But I cannot write anything

That will delete the pain from our hearts.

 

There is no quick fix

No magical chant

No spell, no verse ever written

No prose to soak up our pain. Continue Reading »

Who were we kidding

Thinking we’d get intimacy

As easily as painting our lips

And setting forth for the bright lights?

Who did we meet but others

Wearing too much cologne

And hiding a lack of heart

Beneath suave charm? Continue Reading »

I see your Ascendant

Progress

And kiss your Venus

 

And quietly shed

Soul tears

Because it’s not me. Continue Reading »

A Love Poem for Sagittarius

 

 

 

 

 

 

I watch you as you go

As you run, glide, slide

And fly away

To find purple mountains of glory.

 

I stand here still, quiet, alone

Aching a little

Smiling a little

I stay and I watch you leave. Continue Reading »
