Magic Threesome

Past

Yesterday the Moon and the planets Venus and Mars made an inverted triangle in the morning sky. This is the way of subtle Magic in this swan's life:

An inverted triangle-- symbolic of the Feminine Aspect.. of the feminine of 'female'. [Mmmm...]

The Moon-- The Mother Of All female Psyche; The Triple Goddess.

And Venus, Goddess of Love. Love in the larger sense-- the conversation and friendship beyond the mere physically Aphroditic...
VENUS.. Sex and Friend and more--

Above Mars-- my [astrological/astronomical] ruling planet-- at the the base of the Triad...

A lot of Magic going on in my life of late. Glad I'm more receptive to it these days...

Today

This morning I stood under, staring up at, the Dark Veil again. Mars and Venus are still close. The Triple Goddess had moved a bit more East-- towards her final of the Croning phase. She'll be a new one tomorrow, hiding her face from Mother Earth for a few days, basking fully in the Sun's light.
From our ground, the perspective is Earth-Moon-Sun.
From Theirs? What need they of earthly things, there in the heavens, each recharging the other? The Sun and Moon and Stars...

To detail how all of this is Magic to me is impossible. Look man, I'm likely only fathoming about a third of the True Workings myself :D.

And Of The Heavens


This morning I stood communing with my God.

The constellation Cygnus-- The Celestial Swan--was directly overhead. I gave Thanks-- that which I could fit into words-- for all the magic and blessings I've received and perceived of late. Those which I couldn't-- fathom, know, or put into words-- I let my heart radiate it's peace [and turmoil! ha!] for.

Then, I tried to listen...
Tough, the majority of times, to shut out the constant background static of our own egocentric mind and BE, and HEAR... and even more so, to LISTEN.
Yet, I try and do so when praying for Guidance.

"Be Careful What You Ask For..."

I was reminded, too, that all gifts and blessings have their price. All things gained generally require, in some way, shape or form, equivocal sacrifice.

Well, SO MOTE IT BE. Though from the afore-mentioned egocentric view it often seems so, I have never been burdened with MORE than it is my fate to be REQUIRED to bear; from that of the CYGNUS, this I GROK.

Slainte, Folks...

I am here to learn, but yours is a good question
Indeed..why?

Prowling around at midnight

With so much racket in the stars

Peace - Rene
