Full "Frost Moon" in Gemini on November 25 urges us to see past the illusions of everyday life to the love that is the constant driving force behind all we are and all we do.

We often experience an overload of perception in our daily lives.  These variable sensations merge with erratic moods and racing thoughts to distort what is truly important to us.  Remember, there are things that are everlasting and things that can be taken with the wind.  We may become muddled and preoccupied with thoughts of the past and choices we've made as opposed to focusing on the present, and the powerful future before our eyes.  Today is the day where it all can change-- if we want it to.  The path to a happier and simpler life lies right in front of us, if we have eyes of discernment to illuminate what is right.  

Use the energy of this moon to listen more and react less.  Practice patience with yourself and others to determine where the truth resides for you.  Use the light within to guide your way to the love that is ever-present.

"I see something in your eyes...  Twinkling and glimmering and alive in there...
But first, we need to pull it out of all that mud--
We need to clean off all the darkness and sadness of your past."

(i poured my sorrows into the ocean.

nothing can come in unless i let it in;

nothing is getting in here.)


anyone who declares another beautiful
without first knowing it to its core

is a fool 

for equating
aesthetic charms
with a pure heart.

perhaps it has
a black seed 

in the center of its chest.

The stars shone above me in the trees
as jewels embedded in the leaves.
Forever I would live under this canopy,
catching the wind in my hand.

I noticed the way they looked at me,
even when I was a young girl.
Being warm wasn't an option,
I didn't wish to be inviting.
If they thought I was frozen,
they'd be afraid to touch me.

Teach you patient diligence.

I remember there existed a time
when it wasn't so complicated 
as this, 
the stars never asked me to 
name all the ways
that I loved you. 
It just was, 
it couldn't be reasoned
or explained
(and especially not so
in this feeble
human language).

"At the still point of the turning world.
Neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards;
at the still point,
there the dance is" 

-- T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets

"This is your second chance...
You want to make the best of it."
