Ode to Mars!

As long as I can remember, I have been intensely drawn to the pull of the planet Mars. It is putting on quite a show right now – in "opposition" or alignment with the Earth and Sun; with the earth in the middle. Clearly, Mars is the brightest star in view. I look up at this stunning red orb and it seems to dance towards and through me. It always has.

I am thrilled by the its incredibly intimate dance moves, but I still find it challenging to deal with the attending vertigo. The "idea of Keshav'" is lost in the presence of the moment. Thinking and talking are both challenging while dancing with Mars!

    Thanks for the reminder about Mars. I had every intention of looking out for it and forgot. I do know that pull that comes from the stars. One night as I gazed at a star it came whirling at me. Wow! Of course mind tried to write it off (did that really just happen?) but I have a knowing that it was more true than my everyday illusions.

    It was interesting wording you used to express the dance. Yesterday, it occurred to me that not only am I moving through space, but space is also moving through me. It’s remarkable to know that I exist in the overlap.

    Orion has always been my favorite constellation. Don’t know why, just always felt connected some how.

    I too have been watching and dancing with Mars Keshav! So brilliant of late, my ruling planet of Birth too, so even stronger then the moon at times… it has quite a vibration, it stops me, pulls me in, what is it saying? At first it was like ‘Hey look at me!’ Then it didn’t need to… tho the crescent moon with Spica last night was glorious too.. Namaste.

    I have always felt like Mars was a beacon of hope from my home planet. It disturbs me that we humans are destroying Earth. And, that we are planning on doing the same with Mars.
