VENUS, BABY, HEAR ME OUT…. (Ode to the Venus-Pluto Opposition)

Venus Baby 2Venus, you’re going to want to Rise,
Take on the Titans, Battle in the Underworld,
With style, sass and Pride.

Venus, you’re going to want to Die,
In your Soul-Shaking, Heart-Breaking Flame,
That knows All with a Thousand and One Names,
Venus, Baby, you’re going to want to Cry.

Down, down, you go and Up, Up you Fly.
Death to Birth, Born To Die,
Ways of the World,
Heaven, Earth, Heart, Sky.

Break, just break,
Shatter into a million pieces,
Burn, just burn,
Temper them with your Flame.

There’s no Shame in starting again Baby,
No Shame in Tears or Mourning,
Grieve the Gone, Love the Dawn.

Rise once More, Phoenix-Girl,
You think he was the End-All of your World?
No, no, sweet thing … Just the Beginning….

Ways of the World – Sacrifice, the Old,
Birth, the New – That Sun-Lit Gold-Pink Sky.
Girl, don’t you know?
You’re the Goddess of the Dawn, That Golden Glow…
Radiance, My Love … Yes, it Shows!

So – Spread those Wings, Honey,
And Fly, Fly, Fly!

It’ll be Sunrise Soon…
Wake Up, Wake Up Morning Star!
Time To Shine!
