The Night

A new moon and a solar eclipse conjunct with messenger Mercury (my First House planet) in Sagittarius send me spinning in curiosity and inquiry during a time I typically like to curl gently into quiet, into empty, to sink into rest, my monthly roosting. Instead of roosting, I want to revel out there in the dark with the sky twinkling as if strung with millions of LED fairy lights. LED because isn’t this the time to remind us every time we write that all the unbridled consumption out there (and in here) is taking its toll beyond repairable measure.

And isn’t the antidote to all the taking and using "taking a pause" for opening and release?

This leads me to write about the ways we can try and find peace in release by standing alone in the dark. And when we find ourselves in our smallness, gazing in awe at the great universe, who might we find has accompanied us there?

A poem from Rilke…
