Saint Valentine’s Day dawns

chirrupping birdsongs.

Code red alerting hot-headed romantics:

Venus in Aries, Mars in Sagittarius

time for birthing an early Spring fever.

Burnishing Cupid’s arrows

striking alight all zodiac signs ABLAZE!

Like fireworks out of control

lost in the evanescence of Neptune’s foggy maze.

But thank you Saint Valentine

For warming up, softening hard-hearted humanity;

Elevating Love upon the firebird’s wings of desire,

Hot-air balloon-sized, pulses pulsating higher & higher.

St.Valentine whispers:

Hello! Dreamy Mercury in Pisces

free flowing with the Scorpion’s Moon

simmering ‘s-shaped’ in her watery depths:

salty, saucy, savoury, spicy, sultry

releasing red-hot steam

with your Valentine.

Hello everyone.

Happy New Year greetings.

Especially as it’s a brand new decade!

The last ten years has literally flown by!

It’s been bittersweet as our maternal GrandMother Anna Adjoua Ameeyah sadly passed away unexpectedly in hospital on December 26th 2019 aged 96 years!

May her soul rest in eternal peace x

#BlackFriday, huh!

Well, how about #SuperSaturday?

but only if you bring #chocolate #icecreamsundae

and #TellMeOnASunday #BloodySunday

for comforting solace on #RemembranceSunday.

Why is it we #Don’tLikeMondays #ManicMondays?

but spend like crazy on #CyberMonday?

only to regret January’s sobering #BlueMonday!

So is this farewell, goodbye #RubyTuesday?

no more #humping trysts on #WickedWednesdays!

High[way] maintenance, much? Going your way or my way!

But with gratitude for #Thank$givingThur$day

Far less solemn than #MaundyThursday;

#Rejoice for the #Resurrection on #EasterSunday

the sweetest relief after the #LongGoodFriday.

Because now eclipsing #TGI Fridays

nestling in-between

#TheLongest Day & #theshortestday

is #BlackFriday, huh!

Inspired by the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11’s moon landing, I‘ve attempted to encapsulate below what that monumental experience could’ve felt like. As well as addressing contemporary pressing issues: the fragility of Mother Earth; home/homelessness; women in space as well as the astro phenomenon of Mercury retrograde in the signs of Leo and Cancer [69] and hence all the “re” words!

Mercury retrograde Leo & Cancer:

Really retrograde Leo? Restrain your fiery mother tongue!

Retract shameful chants: sending congresswomen home!

Remember that when courting votes; wherever we lay our hearts

Resident or of no-fixed-abode, extra-terrestrial’s right to call anywhere home, sweet home.

Rethink polarizing agendas, alienating the fragmenting human race;

The fourth house: our ancestral roots, maternity’s natural dwelling place.

Treasure trove of silverware, House of gold.

Memories for many lifetimes, and stories of old.

A House of Representatives, Houses of Parliament;

Be resilient like plants, resolute animals in the harshest environments.

Rehouse and shelter us Gaia Pangaia, as houses divided cannot stand;

restore severed umbilical cords, lost in space, adrift from the Motherland.

Reassure us when cherished dreams are curtailed,

Retrograde Mercury’s Tarot ship of fools has sailed!

Restock the Love Shack, requistion life-jackets for the Love Boat;

Rehandle survival ropes, bring to safe harbour perilous voyages of migrant boats.

Beat-a-retreat far, farwaway from the roar of maddening Earthling crowds;

Reseek sanctuary and solace when there’s no easy-peasy peace to be found

in

Mother craters and Mother lodes, Mother Nature and Mother Earth;

Roaring like Megan Rapinoe: goal-scoring for fun on Lyon’s Astroturf.

Remebering THAT memorable, Summer of nineteen 69

Black & White TV: grainy mooonbeams, shadowy moonshine.

So let’s celebrate our Lunar home, notwithstanding

Reliving global nostalgia: Apollo 11′s epic moon landing!

Emergency drill? readopt the crablike missionary position,

but should mother tongues slip: ground control, Houston intermission!

Awaiting impatiently close to the Sea of Tranquility,

First women moonbathing in the Sea of Fecundity!

Re: first women in space:

Cosmonaut’s Valentina Tereshkova & Svetlana Savitskaya,

Astronaut Sally Ride [RIP] first woman, space-walking the moon;

Relaying cables, void-of-course, Claude Debussy’s Claire de Lune.

Retune radio settings: The Apollo, Harlem and live from the Moth;

Released from Baywatching duties, hirsute man, the Hoff!

Repositioning the flag: Neil Alden Armstrong & Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, Jr

Repaging Mike Collins, alone aboard Columbia, the Mothership,

Rescrambling comms: Solar and partial lunar Eclipses.

Alas! NOT every womb is blessed with labor pains and fruits of successful pregnancy;

Resume mother talks: womenstrual mooncups, the pros and cons of surrogacy.

Reciting prayers to the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Perpetual Help!

Renourish us oysters and prawns & moondust-free seaweed kelp.

Oh Sisters of Mercy, Mother Superior, haven’t you heard?

Reconsole the wailing and weeping of the inconsolable Mothers of the Disappeared.

Reframe mother-in-law jokes; rehabilitating mothers-from-hell;

Rejected like Eve; revengeful Medea, her offspring’s death-knell.

Reappraising the reality of motherly guilt and the mother of all sins,

Return to Love, astro people ’cause tenacious, nurturing Love wins.

Inspired by the astronauts and cosmonauts; and T& O of Astrostyle.com

I wrote this short piece for Melissa’s birthday, April 26th, 2019. Formerly of Astrostyle, Melissa is forging a new direction as a Reiki healer in Seattle, USA.

Birthday ode to Melissa,

I confess I’ve missed ya!

Is your Taurean mantra: reduce, reuse or recycle?

Recited at least forty-four times like the BareNakedLadies

name-checking Leanne Rimes!

Who could forget your Astrostyle makeover tee:

“Heavenly Earth, Talk dirty to me!”

But why, waste precious time (ahem) talking?

So before you go, please pass the tissues;

Somehow, I need to heal my “mama issues”.

Birthday ode to Melissa.

SPLASH!

The deepest scuba dive into the emotion oceans;

Typhoons and tsunamis, storms and tempests;

Mercury retrograde Pisces: reversing your daily flow

Mars in Taurus: accentuating the retreat into the slow

lane of real life that’s become too hectic electric

So farewell Uranus in Aries!

Welcome instead, impulsive Aries transiting wound healing Chiron

whether you be mermaids, mermen or enchanting cosmic sirens.

Reclining on the clinic couch with Virgoan psychoanalysts;

Changeling muses,mizChartreuse’s Piscean amethyst.

Subconsciously dreaming of surrealist Salvador Dali,

planning it by the planets with Ophira & Tali.

Ahoy there! Blue planet: what can we do, now we know?

In serious peril, the oceanic legacy of Jacques Costeau.

For our children’s children it is crystal clear to see

weeping for so many plasticized fishes, floating lifeless

twenty thousand leagues under the sea!

Oink! In this year of the Earth Pig/wild boar:-

Every retrograde moment: an interminable Groundhog day!

with Mercury baiting Pisces in every which way

Hook, line and sinker!

Rendering your Pisces peace in bits and pieces?

We must reawaken from this nightmare with primeval screams;

Regurgitating snakes like organic chemist, Kekule’s benzene dream.

So in remembering that “to err is human, to forgive is divine”;

Resurface from the depths with pearls of wisdom sublime.

For when dreams become a nightmare, dragnetted in Poseidon’s lair;

Take slow.deep.breaths. Reciting over and over the “Serenity Prayer”.
