Black Spring

Persephone is still in darkness, here…  in the North. Our bodies and hearts yearn for her and we pray for her emergence…FloraJoblcklasttinyStruggling to break through into the light, she is surrounded by flowers and tendrils and roots, coming alive all around her. She breathes love and fire  into the black earth, incubating life with her sighs and  her breath.

Half Light

The Dreamer and the Moon … from ” The Dreamer”series, Natasha Von 

Aedh Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven
Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

— William Butler Yeats

Fire signs… entering Aries

TASHARAINBOWGoldenshaktiAngeltiny copyMars in Sagittarius, trine Sun and Mercury in Aries, all so combustible. We are feeling the aftermath of the eclipse… and must hold on to our vision of love and expanded heart as we transition from  our sojourn in the mystical seas of Pisces into a brave new world…


Equinox

TashaGoddessessmallestBooktinyA point of balance between the worlds, day and night and spring and fall; Aries and Libra. Venus conjunct Neptune makes a lovely fog and mist that can be inspiring if we can open to its magic. The Sun enters Aries today and the Earth starts her new year cloaked in these beautiful mists. Idealism is flowing outwards with Neptune in our loving hearts and this is the perfect  moment to stop. Set intentions for the next six months when we will real what we now slowly prepare to sow in the coming spring.The sacred Heart appears as a vision for our inspiration at this time. We can create this utopia in ourselves now if we can only  surrender to this inspiration, and meditate, poised there like butterflies harvesting nectar.  Following our own bliss, we can start gestation, birthing  what we can now dream into being with Venus’s love and the wisdom and healing power of Chiron, poised parallel to  Neptune. Saturn, Venus and Jupiter  now form a T square that when harnessed can create powerful results with focused intent through ritual and magic  Coupled with Saturn’s trine to the Aries Sun, fire signs will once again  be taking focused action. Early Libra and Aries are now about to be transformed by the coming eclipse at 4 degrees Libra, opening a portal to  a new world opening just around the corner as Mercury enters Aries, when we can initiate a new cycle of thought and communication with awakened mind and fresh perspective. .
