Every Sorceress Is A Pragmatist At Heart

John William Waterhouse

 

” I never turned anyone into a pig.
Some people are pigs; I make them
Look like pigs.

I’m sick of your world
That lets the outside disguise the inside. Your men weren’t bad men;
Undisciplined life
Did that to them. As pigs,

Under the care of
Me and my ladies, they
Sweetened right up.

Then I reversed the spell, showing you my goodness
As well as my power. I saw

We could be happy here,
As men and women are
When their needs are simple. In the same breath,

I foresaw your departure,
Your men with my help braving
The crying and pounding sea. You think

A few tears upset me? My friend,
Every sorceress is
A pragmatist at heart; nobody sees essence who can’t
Face limitation. If I wanted only to hold you

I could hold you prisoner. “

Louise Gluck

Asteroid Circe is in early Aquarius and will be sextiling the New Moon in Sagittarius next week.  New spells for a fresh era. There has never been a better time to develop some selective amnesia and do the be-here-now thing.

What do you feed them jaguars ?

Seriously, vibrational frequency feeling low. Usually can overcome the vibe of others but this feels like too much. AS if everybody around me is taking a deep breath and exhaling stuck, old energy and it cannot dissipate fast enough.

Will create a bubble around me at work tomorrow of pure, circulating air infused with crystal and fairy dust. (almost wrote farty dust, that’ll keep them away too)

Lovely poem. Circe is conjunct my ascendant. I feel at one point I have to sit and think but not when Luna is in Virgo 🙂

This coming New Moon seems to be optimal
time to do some witchy-poo rituals.
IF ever i’m going to, it’s The Time.
Why do i fear success? ‘Be careful what you wish for’
is always at back of mind. The universe often delivers
in unexpected ways…

Wish I could do selective amnesia. Too pragmatic. Like the sorceress.

That made me think of the expression ‘casting
pearls before swine’. And ‘you can’t make a silk
purse from a sows ear.’ But she, the sorceress can!
Tres profound for early Mon morn, Myst.
