Scorpio New Moon, Samhain, Mercury Rx 2019

This New Moon in Scorpio turns the wheel of the year to Samhain,  a liminal time of listening to the autumnal migration: Dusky Geese, Trumpeter Swans, and Sandhill Cranes overhead with yellow, orange, topaz, and gold leaves twirling to the ground while rain, wind, and darkness increases.  May we honor our ancestors, listen to the spirits, celebrate this seasonal time of harvest and gratitude.   May we release what we no longer need to carry, and invite in what we want in our lives.


Honeybee Haiku is the epigraph in my third book of poetry
honored to have it on CTRAN buses, Poetry Moves Season 8
