Virgo

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Transparent egg of light

Illumines the heart,

Focalising knowledge of the inner mysteries,

While nature rejoices.

 

Melanie, Bali 3.1.2012

 

 

 

 

Standing alone on the fertile land

The angelic maiden receives from above
The Divine Heavenly Light streaming around her 
And she accepts this blessing with love.

In one hand she holds a sphere of light
In the other an ear of corn
These symbols denote her fertility
As she waits for her fruits to be born.

Surrounded by creatures with long pointy ears
Accepting her fate with serenity
At her feet lie the book telling her story
Is she Demeter or is she Persephone?

Hold dear

 

Keep warm

Fertile eggs

Breed geometry

 

She takes care

Measures growth

Patiently

 

Winged earth

Feather light

Surely adept

Virgo

 

I count the heads of corn, sift grains of wheat.

 

The harvest is well timed, wisely weighed.

 

The weather is on the turn and we each do our part.

 

I sweep the kitchen, light the flame in the hearth.

Slowing the mind-spin

Mercurial perception gently measures

the finest gifts, and energies

 

inform my body, winged for landing

 

in ceremony I recognise

 

the goddess story, 

 

alchemical fascination knows

 

the light being, That I AM
