Saturn retrograde: structures collapse.
This is what I was thinking as I was on the treadmill the other day. Saturn is a test. Saturn retrograde is also a test. I know others are feeling the break. I am feeling the dissolve. Not that Saturn retrograde becomes Neptune but fixed water “in reverse” becomes sloppy water. Not that Scorpio, literally, goes retrograde but… do you get what I’m saying here? We may need to hold ourselves together more. Put in new structures. Maybe this sounds counterintuitive. Maybe it sounds perfect. You tell me what your experience is so far. I don’t always comment on every comment but I read them all and the readers here benefit from your wisdom and expertise. Suddenly there’s a free-fall and we must re-inflate the raft. Or swim to shore.
One of my Twitter pals was wondering where the poems went. Well… I only did half of my 30 Poems in 30 Days project and right as I was reaching the middle point, I heard back from that literary journal who is taking one of my poems. The truth is, I miss it too 🙂 Here’s a poem from the Archives for the Glossy Queen from Twitter 🙂
Jesus of the Subway
You act like someone else is holding me up,
when really it’s just myself.
Afraid of the marketplace,
I move slowly through crowds
to the train,
and by chance the rain
has drowned no one I know—
only made puddles where I wait with the others
for the Number 3 and here it comes
so fast I want to fall down
or lie down.
All of us get in,
all our limbs are safe,
even the babies in the baby carriages,
even danger is safe in Brooklyn,
in the summer,
in this doggone weather,
when I’m here.
So when you act like someone else
is holding me up,
I tell you no,
it’s my own strong arms.
Cards for your weekend in LOVE (we do jump around a lot here, don’t we?) but first a little astrology:
The Moon is in Leo Saturday and Sunday. I give this a THUMBS UP for love in general because Leo is generous and warm and… dramatic 🙂
Leo also loves a lavish meal which could be fun whether you are dining in or out 🙂 The problem is that the Moon isn’t well supported by this sky. We get good aspects to Uranus and Jupiter but otherwise… the audience (which Leo needs) is missing which makes a big cat sad. On the other hand, this lovely Leo Moon could be well aspected in *your* chart and that counts!
Mercury goes retrograde in Pisces on Saturday and the past becomes present again. Far as love goes, you could hear from past lovers or be dealing with past issues or just… past the point of no return. This is not the time to cut. Wait.
Astrologically speaking I give this weekend an “eh” for love. Tzuris.
Advice from the Tarot:
Any move you make now would be a false move. Nothing is clear so do nothing.
