with the Voice of the Moon

MoonYou’ve got it all wrong. You didn’t come here to master unconditional Love – that is where you came from and where you will return. You came here to learn personal Love.  Universal Love.  Messy Love . . . sweaty Love . . . crazy Love.  Broken Love.  Whole Love . . . infused with Divinity. Lived through the Grace of stumbling . . . demonstrated through the beauty of . . . messing up.  Often.taliswomenYou didn’t come here to be perfect. You already are. You came here to be gorgeously human. Flawed and fabulous.  And then to rise again into remembering.
pearlzJane gave me this piece during the August Moon, and said she didn’t know who wrote it. But I do.

the last fence postFor a long while I sat with my dog by the last fencepost and thought, well,
here it is, the last fence post.
I wrote my name in the sooty sand thinking of what Tewi told me about my dream of the burning beach.
A lyric has been added to the song the sea teaches the gulls . . . I heard my name in it clearly.

When it was time, and it was, I got up and walked farther forever, right on the edge of water
and land . . . my footprints covered by the waves tatting loose, lacey patterns in the sand.

She looked just like a gypsy herself as she told me she learned to read Tarot from a drunk gypsy. She said the cards know more than the querant. Then she examined the deck and my aura and picked out four signifiers. How she knew which to select I don’t know, she didn’t know me from Adam, but they couldn’t have been more spot on. I asked her about this and she told me that she doesn’t pick them, the cards tell her. They have a mind of their own, or at least know the mind that is unknown.IMG_9077
After a fascinatingly accurate while, she said I could ask a specific question of the cards. So I did. She pulled two new cards off the top of the deck and laid them side by side. Without a bit of hedging she shook her head emphatically and said No . . . as in Hell No.IMG_9078I had to smile because I already knew Hell No and this was actually a trick question. Her confidence and competence was disarming. Since I already knew the answer to this question, it might have been smarter to ask for the winning lottery numbers.
