Dark Moon Poem: The Neutron Stars

Filed in Sagacious

The Neutron Stars

The dark moon energy

Was seeping in

Its waning

Sleepy dreams

The subtle shade

Of sadness

Of the falls

And failures

I heard on the news

130 million years ago

Two neutron stars collided

Magnetic waves arriving

NOW

They were from the

Nearest – the nearest –

100 million galaxies

One teaspoon of neutron star matter

Weighs 60 billion tonnes

My matter then?

Less than one grain

Less than one tiny pinhead

Invisible to the naked eye

So small

My entire life

Heavy with war wounds

A speck of

Infinite stardust

In a galaxy

Of a billion teaspoons.

I am smiling… this is the moon of the year (for me, perhaps) but it’s all shifting, all the molecules, the star matter, the energies, the whatever you want to call it. I’m feeling a release of shackles. The interesting thing is I wanted this and I also did not want this as I knew what it required of me. Life rolls on and the clay of it’s foundation gets remoulded. I might even be upbeat. Life is still biting at my heals but I’m still saying yes, even when I want to say no I’m saying yes…… I feel… Read more »

Perfectly written. I sure do feel an affinity with your journey. Something familiar yet so foreign. I do adore where my mind travels along with your writing.

Best wishes for the Moon of the Year.

That’s just so lovely of you to say S.

A heartfelt thank you.

Hoping your new moon journey was deeply satisfying x

“Biting at your heals” – i know it’s just a fast-typer’s typo but it makes me smile and ask:

Centaurus, where is that centaur Chiron, and what is happening to him just now in your chart?

Chiron eternally had to manage the toxins, and your joy has so much bitter undertone, channelled so beautifully into Sag Faith and Taurean Organic Acceptance…

(Sorry i could not travel to you when i wanted to; there’s going to be a time next year.)

Yeah you’d swear Mercury was already retro but I’m a native retro and keys that spark as fingers fly over them and an unfortunate laziness(?) to go back and edit or review at times… just stream of consciousness stuff… but when I re-read I groan. And then the weight of getting it wrong settles on me. Gah. Chiron has made enough passes over my natal over the last few years but in this current retrograde is tipping back into the conjunct orb but wide. So what would I say of that… well I’d liken that to him riding off over… Read more »

Hearing the morning rain arrive, my nerves are less exposed. This poem and this beautiful image work so well together. Thank you MM

@ Powderfinger. Yes, I was wondering what was happening. Technology is so glitchy around me, the radio frequency goes nuts, train station monitors flicker and zap, TV at Maccas last night poor Harry Potter was even more magical. I was meaning to tell you I heard that song you mentioned about breakfast in Tweed Heads Mall. It was within the day or two of you writing about it. Just Mt Warning conducting away at my internal forces and letting me breathe again. It was lovely to think of your kind words and send compassion your way. I think much unresolved… Read more »

Funny, that song is not a ‘radio’ song.
Ha, you had brekky at ‘Seed Twitty Mall’.
I’ll be back up that way on Monday.

Shucks; kind words. I’ll have to find a blurb on that book.

Whoaaaaaaaaa! Wow! Beautiful! I love contemplating stuff (star stuff..?) like this…… thanks MM! It’s definitely been a very dark moon Scorp week, everything got churned up in my everyday life and in my psyche, but the energy shifted for me last night after I went to hear a concert last night that seemed to channel this dark moon, very beautiful music and ethereal yet heavy at the same time and the song lyrics mined what’s unsaid in interpersonal dynamics. Even the venue was a perfect setting for the dark moon….old wooden building of Nordic architecture, that held quiet and stillness,… Read more »

Different setting but roughly same feeling.

The new moon will be exact on my natal Neptune in the 5th house. Music seemed an appropriate channel for this energy…

It’ll be 3° past my natal Jup.

Nothing more centering than music for Moon-Nep anything.

Yes!!!!! It’s piscean moon medicine

I didn’t know why music was so important to me.
The Astro explains it.
My SD Nep (Scorp 4th) is a Focal in a TSq that Sqs my 7th Moon (Sun 1st); my bucket handle chart ruler….and Nep trines my Asc.

My musicians ARE my musicians. And don’t ever, ever dis em!!!

Yes! And I have natal Pisces moon as well as the new moon was on my Neptune.
I always say, music is my medicine!

We must be a large sub-group on here. But, of course, a Moon-Nep person would say that.

Redolent on a watercress of emotional tides, sublimated in lifting wafts of netherous inklements. Grounded in the burning embers of seared beleif.
