Autumn Reverie🍂

By Elizabeth Wesley

Melancholy skies, holding back the tears
With wild geese flying to meet other years
Flames of crimson torches come flinging
Leaves on gnarled branches swinging 
Desolate winds rush leaping
Taking flowers to their final sleeping...

A Song of Despair

by Pablo Neruda

The memory of you emerges from the night around me
The river mingles its stubborn lament with the sea

Deserted like the wharves at dawn
It is the hour of departure, oh deserted one 

Cold flower heads are raining over my heart
Oh pit of debris, fierce cave of the shipwrecked

In you the wars and the fights accumulated
From you the wings of the song birds rose

You swallowed everything, like distance
Like the sea, like time. In you everything sank

It was the happy hour of assault and the kiss
The hour of the spell that blazed like a lighthouse…

Uncharted Waters 💕

By Rhonda Johnson-Saunders

An ocean tumbles through dreams of you. In depths unknown, I float above.

Oh, how I long to dive beneath your surface, yet I am timid in matters of love.

If brave, I’d have shown you the whole of my gushing heart, no less than tides of bliss.

Searching your eyes, I want for treasures lost on the ocean’s floor.

The sun, like a gold coin, drops, splashing this face of regret.

I blush in secret thoughts of you and turn away from the endless shore.

Venus in Sagittarius; Oct. 18 – Nov. 11, 2016 ♐

Coming out of the cleansing waters of Scorpio, loving Venus moves into the idealistic fire sign of Sagittarius, adding fuel to Cupid’s fire and ensuring passion and excitement!

Venus in Scorpio vibes were pretty intense and may have exposed buried greed, envy and jealousy. Now, in the sign of the Archer, Venus is uplifted! Romantic energy shifts from dark and probing to light and breezy.

Often seen as the unobtainable fantasy, Venus in Sagittarius is an eternal seeker. Personal freedom is paramount. Soul-level declarations of undying love is lost in this Venusian atmosphere, as well as heavy, over-analyzed relationship issues or emotional drama. Care-free, wild, uncomplicated types is what attracts this Venus.

Although attraction happens very easily under this Venusian climate, this brings forth a feeling of restlessness. Something (or someone) fascinating, exotic, or new is just around the corner, waiting to be explored. As fast as the flame is lit, it can burn out just as quickly.

“His hands are saying that he wants to hold her. His feet are saying that he wants to chase after her… He’s probably forgotten that I’m here, beside him.” – Ai Yazawa
