Sunday inspiration: A beautiful Leo Sunrise and poem

Thanks to Astrococktail for this incredible image.




Diana Henderson

Oh, embracer of life
Whose inner sun warms us all,
We, your subjects, are soon enthralled
By the magic of your performance.
You prance upon the stage
Amid the dance of sashay and promenade.
The story teller turns the page
With great fanfare and abandon,
And the tale grows ripe and lusty,
Rich as raisins baked on California vines.
The teller and the tale do blend a potent wine ~
More outrageous and ever more divine ~
With each utterance sublime in its sheer presence.
And there is always time for one more tale,
One more song, another dance, a joyful recitation.
As long as there’s an audience to regale,
You’ll provide us with that joyful expectation
Until without reservation you bring the blazing glory
Of the sun to reign upon the mindful ear,
To evoke a laugh or bring a tear,
To bring the light to all who hear the feline roar.
Actor, singer, painter, poet, dancer of the heart,
The fire is in your art and in your artifice.
You live always with a bang and not a whimper ~
Within your temper no room for temperance.
We bask in your brilliance infused with your heat,
Imbued with the passion that knows no retreat.
You’re there to remind us to play is the thing,*
To giggle, to roar, to rant and to sing!

Sunday inspiration from Anam Cara

6701236_sA Blessing

May the light of your soul guide you
May the light of your soul bless the work you do with the secret love and warmth of your heart.
May you see in what you do the beauty of your own soul.
May the sacredness of your work bring healing, light and renewal to those who work with you and to those who see and receive your work.
May your work never weary you.
May it release within you wellsprings of refreshment, inspiration and excitement.
May you be present in what you do.
May you never become lost in the bland absences.
May the day never burden.
May dawn find you awake and alert, approaching your new day with dreams, possibilities and promises.
May evening find you gracious and fulfilled.
May you go into the night blessed, sheltered and protected.
May your soul calm, console and renew you.

John O’Donohue

Sunday Poetry for the Summer Solstice

Summer SolsticeMidsummer
by JT

Midsummer —
Longest day
Shortest night
Longest light
Shortest dark
The world within
Echoes the world without
Lush foliage, leaves unfurled
Soft springy grass dotted with
Brightly colored flowers peeping through
The earth is green and bright
With warm sunny days
Clear velvety blue skies
Gentle cool breezes
Nature in glory
Our hopes blossom
Creativity flowers
With the season
The seeds of the fruit
Our desires will bear
Can be seen
On the stems
Of our dreams

Sunday inspiration: Trusting the future

(reposted from 2012) Astrologers have a reputation, which we ourselves and our forbears have propagated, of being able to foretell the future.  If you run a Google search for “Can astrology predict the future,” the very first article is from a well-known astrology site titled “Predicting the future with astrology.”

The hunger to know the future is not, of course, limited to astrology.  Climatologists, stockbrokers, economists – all are paid to predict the future.  All fail miserably.

In our personal lives we long to know the outcome of our personal situations.  As one client brilliantly wrote me in frustration that astrology could not provide a clear map for him, “It is difficult for me, who feels blind about many things in life, to see a possible path to the answers, and that I feel on the edge of great personal discoveries, without the ability to really obtain them.”  I have certainly experienced those same feelings, and for many years I studied every aspect of my life through an astrological lens, hoping to find a clue to the future.

It’s just not possible.

It’s not possible to know the future because we are on a journey of self-discovery.  Religious people have a hard and fast belief system that tells them what their future holds, and for many that blind faith offers comfort.  I am a person that needs to experience things to believe them, and what I CAN tell you is that after over 30 years as a student and practitioner of astrology I have learned to really trust the planets.  The painful changes that we are forced to make under a Pluto transit can be seen through the eyes of hindsight as having been extremely beneficial.  The hardships of a Saturn/Sun […]

Sunday inspiration: when bad planets happen to good people

dark night of the soul Art by Willow Arlenea

I mean the title as a bit of a joke – an homage to the self-help book from the 1970s by Harold Kushner.  But it’s no joke when tragic events happen in our own lives or to someone we love.

Over the past five years of such intense planetary drama these stories seem to occur more frequently, at least in my life.  The bride-to-be whose fiance dies of a heart attack five days before the wedding.  The parents who lose two children in the space of a year.  The friend who waited over 40 years to find her soulmate and build their dream house, only to have him die of a brain tumor less than five years into their marriage.  Another friend in a difficult marriage who loses her husband and father within six months.  All of you have your own stories, perhaps from your own lives.

This kind of event that turns our world upside down generally occurs under the auspices of Saturn or Pluto.  And sometimes both.  My sister was an astrology skeptic until I started my blog under her tutelage, and then she became curious.  I’m still not sure she’s convinced in its accuracy, but she is interested enough to want to know what the planets are doing when things get rough.

Over the past few years she has had a ridiculous lineup of planetary transits and progressions including a big lineup of planets to Pluto in her progressed chart and her second Saturn return.  During that time she lost a job, found another one, her husband lost his job, couldn’t find another one, our mother ended up in the hospital with a chronic illness and died, her husband […]
