Poet's words
written by AprilMichelle, February 11, 2011
I'm obsessed with this quote from "the Poet" in the book Hungry Tide, by Amitav Ghosh:

"beauty's nothing
but the start of terror we can hardly bear,
and we adore it because of the serene scorn
it could kill us with..."

The necklace takes me back to when I was a little girl. Happy, carefree & innocent. Love the necklace, want it now!

I'm obsessed with anything that makes me smile and think of beauty. To me, fashion is about adoring our self and celebrating ~ expressing creativity. xoxo
Charming charms are memory trinkets with sentimental value.. . . priceless keepsakes.

Vintage fabrics. Unique jewelry made from little cast-off bobbles. Keychains made from old flatware. Basically everything inside of Stripe. You're killing me here!

Leo Sun; Full Moon, Venus Retro in Leo; Saturn Direct

It’s a complex week of planetary movements, challenges, demands and callings. We’re in the time of the Leo Sun. Leo—fixed fire, gold, the heart, generous, strong, noble, the king/queen—needs appreciation and praise from everyone in order to move forward. During Leo we gain a greater sense of self-identification by recognizing our creativity. It’s therefore a perfect time for Venus retrograding in Leo. In Venus retrograde we review and re-assess values. Venus retro in Leo concerns our self as valuable, acknowledging talents, gifts, abilities and offerings. Friday, Venus re-enters Leo (29 degrees, a critical degree) continuing the retrograde to 14 degrees Leo on Sept. 6. Friday (Full Moon) is also the (8 degrees) Leo solar festival, Festival of the Future. Leo is the heart of the sun, the heart of all that matters. When attuned to this heart, we have understanding and inclusivity. The heart of the Lion is Mitra (think “Maitreya,” the coming World Teacher). Leo prepares humanity to receive divine love from subtle sources and later to radiate that love to the kingdoms. Sirius, Ray 2, where love originates, streams through Regulus (heart of Leo), into the heart of the sun (Ray 2) and into all hearts. The heart of Leo is Regulus. Joining Venus, the love underlying all of creation appears. Saturday is Sun/Neptune (confusion or devotion) with late night Saturn turning stationary direct. Ideas, plans and structures held long in abeyance (since March 14) slowly move forward. (Read more on Leo and the week at nightlightnews.org and Risa D’Angeles’ Facebook page, accessed through my website.)
