“Astrology for the Astrologically Challenged” by Deborah Smith Parker

I’m posting my annual astrological reminder that the Light carried within each sign of the zodiac offers its unique contribution to Life’s primal will to good.

I, Capricorn, use my stone walls to guard the Light at its lowest flickering point so it may thrive to climb to its highest destiny.

I, Aquarius, know Light must be freed from every prison cell to illumine the lamp of knowledge in every mind.

I, Pisces diffuse the Light throughout the depths of my sea, leaving no drop of water in total darkness.

I, Aries, am the Light always rising in the east, a blazing path into each new dawn for others to follow.

I, Taurus, catch the Light as it touches earth to make fire in the mud that nourishes all new growth.

I, Gemini, seek each intersection of the Light, every divide, for there are always choices and all paths must be explored.

I, Cancer, nourish in my womb the quickening by Light of each seed conceived in all unions.

I, Leo, radiate Light from the heart of every matter as freely as a child gives love.

I, Virgo, carry in my hands the Light that nurtures every tiny seed, each grain of wheat for they must be perfectly ripe before being offered as flour for the bread.

I, Libra, witness the Light in all its extremities, and no matter what its distance or destination I give testimony to its one source.

I, Scorpio, bear the Light into the darkest regions that all fear but all must know.  When they know at last, they carry the Light into every death.

I, Sagittarius, soar high in screamingly ecstatic blazing dissolution into the dying of the Light.

We are all blessed by the One Light of love and consciousness that grows in all our hearts and minds.

    Wow…..this is a powerful and magickal gift to all of us Deborah. Thank you so much for your light.

  2. Joyce Mason says:

    Deborah, this is so inspired! What a gift to us in the Season of Love and Light. Every blessing to you for your wonderful work and for sharing your own light so liberally.

    When we radiate our light, we’re on the giving end and often don’t realize how we shine or see how our light is received. What a perfect reminder of how each of our sparks of the divine contribute to the bonfire of creation/creativity. It takes a village to light up a world, and every sign’s light is needed. Without even one, life would be dimmer.

  3. Inez says:
