Poetry and the Planets


This is a beautiful poem written by my astrology guru Linda Goodman.  I truly believe she is the most amazing astrologer to ever live.  I found this poem hidden in one of her many books I have, and I just had to share it with you guys.

The Planets
 
we've fought a long and bitter war, my Twin Self and I
lost and lonely, fallen angels - exiled
from a misty, long-forgotten Oober galaxy of stars
 
caught in Neptune's tangled web
wounded cruelly by the painful thrust of Mars
tortured by the clever lies of Mercury
 
shocked and nearly torn asunder
by Vulcan's distant, raging thunder
shattered by the lighting
of the sudden, awful violence of Uranus
 
crushed beneath the wright of stern,
Saturn
who lengthened every hour into a day...
each day into a year
each year... into millenniums of waiting
 
scorched by the Sun's exploding bursts of
pride as those wandering angels, stilled and
helpless deep within us, cried
still we fought on, in unrelenting fury
striking blow for blow
driven by the pounding drums of Jupiter's giant,
throbbing passions
stumbling at the precipice of the Moon's enticing
madness
 
to fall, at last, in trembling fear
before the ominous threat of Pluto's tomb-like silence
consumed by inconsolable sadness
and the bleakness of despair
 
we bear...
 
the wounds and scars of furious battle,
My Twin self and I
 
but now we walk in quiet peace... with all our
scattered pieces whole
together, hand-in-hand... full serpent circle
back into the pyramid-shaped rainbow of tomorrow's
brighter Eden
crowned by gentle Venus with the Victory of Love
 
that did not die, but has survived
the night of selfish seeking
 
to wait for morning's soft forgiveness
 
and the dawn of understanding
 
- Linda Goodman
