the Melvins, and Rilke,
two great things that, no wait,
The Moon’s in Virgo asking us to apply our discernment.
Another Eclipse is coming on June 4th, they show up in pairs.
things change: it’s a fact.
I’ve been thinking about Neptune.
Neptune rules everything that is both real and unreal,
like the movies and drugs and dreams, music and spirituality
Feelings like longing.
Some think of Neptune as a higher form of Venus
love where the space between one soul and another seems to dissolve
love where you can’t save them
love where they can’t save you,
or did they somehow save you anyway,
even if didn’t last?
Do you try?
Neptune has a way of disappearing things
Leaving us to wonder if was ever true,
often, nearly always, there is loss involved
even if only the loss of those great heights you felt you had ascended to
in the presence of the beloved
“World was in the face of the beloved–,
but suddenly it poured out and was gone:
world is outside, world can not be grasped.
Why didn’t I, from the full, beloved face
as I raised it to my lips, why didn’t I drink
world, so near that I couldn’t almost taste it?
Ah, I drank. Insatiably I drank.
But I was filled up also, with too much
world, and, drinking, I myself spilled over.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke
or as Buzzo says
“Mouth full of your face of truth..”
Isn’t that something you can carry away with you….
the glimpse of the world from those heights?
All those moments that were true and untrue
Whether or not the love stays
Neptune ruling the Ocean
and those fish that swim in both directions
Discernment is the complement to Neptune,
as Virgo is to Pisces,
and Vice Versa
very few things are a practical as a Virgo
who is keeping their eyes on the details
as we all fall back to earth.
Mars in Virgo
Neptune in Pisces
the dreamer and the details
It’s Saturn in Libra that’s calling the shots now
what is real will grow
The lights come up when the movie is over and we can all see
where the popcorn spilled.
Some leave the theater still holding hands,
and some are just glad the show is over,
some stay to watch the credits, although they know that it is done
