So, I was going through my journal, and I came across this wonderful prose I had copied from Deborah Castellano’s blog post of October 14, 2012 on Charmed Finishing School. There were good things about Saturn’s travel through Libra that I remember, but were put on a back burner/buried under a pile of feelings that were churned up while mourning the death of family members. The last two years, I have been undergoing a ruthless personal confrontation with the ideal of family and the abject reality of my own family of origin while he made his trip through Scorpio.
If you’re a desperate wanting thing full of dreams and aspirations, you have to stop caring about what others want you to care about. If you’re full of art. If you’re full of love. If you’re full of desire. If you’re full of faith. If you’re full of magic. You have to be willing to lose everything, to be stripped bare. To pit yourself against Zeus for your daughter, letting the world burn around you. You have to be charming, brave and fierce against demons. Now is the time, now is the hour. Ours is the magic, ours is the power.
Isn’t that beautiful? I love that, especially the invocation at the end…
I’m trying to get back to making real the inspiration of that time, when I did so much photography, and began really looking at how to do some art, to leave a body of work behind.
Let your Muse light your soul on fire.
Be true to your art.
Thanks Deborah. This is so powerful. Wish me luck.
