Royal marriage of the alchemist,
where Sol and Luna congregate
to say, “I do” on Life’s open road.
A blending between these deities
creates blissful union and depth
for this poet and inspiring muse.
A journeying towards the soul’s
wise counsel and integrated life.
Through celestial, mercurial air,
conducted by the angel Raphael,
each vow of love rides the wind
as the newlyweds ascend as one.
For only within the relationship
will spirit’s symmetry be found.
She who desires soul excellence.
He who yearns soul completion.
Reversed, your heart will break
with this selfish, grasping lover
who lives in his own dreamland.
As passion is lost in the betrayal,
the deceptive nature of paradise
will be revealed to the sad heart.
Huge inner conflicts are created,
as war is waged against the soul.
Here on the day of the wedding,
in the secret garden of the heart,
enclosed by the two sacred trees,
the great spirits meet each other.
Naked and stripped of their ego,
twin souls come together in love,
inspiring this poet ever closer to
the victorious Chariot with stars.
