Lunch for Pascale’s birthday then Wells Next the Sea and Long Beach Walk. Pasta and radicchio.
(from our show at Joe’s Pub, December 2017)
So picking up the thread of the biblical mythos Cancer the Flood and Exodus. Leo Kings. Virgo Job. A broken figure. But that’s where the light gets in! Hold that thought! I know what you’re going to say. Oh really? Yes, you’re going to say that just as Virgo connects to the Book of Job so too does the next sign of Libra correlate to the following book of Psalms which is made up of poems, songs and prayers.
Yes, be- because, Libra is the Cardinal-Air sign; which translates to Light. Enlightenment. Beautiful principles, ideas and aesthetics ruled by Venus on the astral plane. And …And that if Virgo was about function then Libra is about design. That its conceptual. The Scales being the only inanimate sign. Yes impressive) and that the sign’s archetypes are Astrea and Apollo, the god of light and all such abstracts like order, harmony, reason, prophesy, poetry, music.
The seventh sign, seven notes to “The Scales”: Apollo plays the Lyre; so does Sting, right? He’s a Libra. I think so. And Psalms is most lyrical. The book is literally lyrics, choir parts, actually, with stage directions, no less, like “light incense here.” Hello! They’re spells! The projection of thought forms. Inanimate but alive…? Apollo is an oracular god and his high priestesses are white witches. So are Libra people on their infamous soap boxes. They are like ahh. Their particular brand of spirituality is uplifting. They endeavor to lift everyone higher. To raise consciousness to a white-light level. They can seem a bit judgy…but teach us that we all must stand for some thing! Begs the question do you?
How about equality, democracy, liberty? Libra’s mottos I balance and We are, both champion harmony—the seventh house is that of relationships, “marriage” contracts, social ones especially. That navel-gazing conscience of Virgo now becomes a social conscience in Libra. So that we are in harmony in balance. Even the Libra body part is about balance, being the hinge of the body and the kidneys which balance our water and minral levels. Anyway… This song is by two Libras, B. Geldof/M. Ure. Its for and about others; and it definitely requires some harmony.
song: Do They Know It’s Christmas
