Pisces: A Self-portrait and a Poem
Sea Breeze The flesh is sad, Alas! and I have read all the books. Let’s go! Far off. Let’s go! I sense that the birds, intoxicated, fly deep into unknown spume and sky! Nothing – not even old gardens mirrored by eyes – can restrain this heart that drenches itself in the sea, O nights, […]

Feb-March Podcast!
In this month’s astrology podcast, we quite look forward to a bit of Pisces after so much Aquarius. Mind you, we recorded this just when Mercury was stationing direct and getting a nice square from the Moon and Mars: perhaps that has something to do with the rather odd sound quality! Enjoy.

Aquarius: A Self-portrait and a poem
  Patterns  I walk down the garden-paths,  And all the daffodils  Are blowing, and the bright blue squills.  I walk down the patterned garden-paths  In my stiff, brocaded gown.  With my powdered hair and jeweled fan,  I too am a rare  Pattern. As I wander down   The garden-paths.  My dress is richly figured,  And […]

The Capitol Riot
  On January 6, the seat of American democracy, the Capitol, was invaded by a mob. Lawmakers were hustled into hiding, while the place was overrun by a motley crew of mostly white men, some dressed for combat, some for the pantomime, and some for a corporate awayday.

Capricorn: A Self-Portrait and a Poem
For joy’s sake, from my hands For joy’s sake, from my hands, take some honey and some sun, as Persephone’s bees told us.   Not to be freed, the unmoored boat. Not to be heard, fur-booted shadows. Not to be silenced, life’s dark terrors. Now we only have kisses, dry and bristling like bees, that […]
