“I feel my boots
trying to leave the ground,
I feel my heart
pumping hard. I want
to think again of dangerous and noble things.
I want to be light and frolicsome.
I want to be improbably beautiful and afraid of nothing,
as though I had wings.”
The Sun, Retro-Mercury and Isis-Transpluto are in Leo. The Moon is in Aries near Athene and rad Uranus, the Magician. Asteroid Atlantis is in Aquarius near the Vertex, always a turning point for empires. Circe is in Kataka (to do – make witchy potions or super-foodie enchanted meals?) and Eros with Prosperina in Scorpio. It’s Gemini Overload with Fire Goddess Vesta, Jupiter, Ceres, wild Pan and Venus all in the sign of the Trickster. How beautiful is this weird astro and this poem, above? There are people who’re loathing this new era of the Zap Zone and wishing hard for it to be back to normal and then there are those of us who are (secretly) loving it.
