As the smoke clears, clouds separate,
we behold Venus with evening stars,
Divine child of Mother Earth herself.
A true beacon of hope and creativity,
she kneels barefoot before the waters,
listening in, offering her loving heart,
while the Soul dances in exhilaration,
here on the incandescent sacred path.
Her lustrous grace, a pure revelation,
the bright soul no longer covered up.
Nurtured by the universe at this time,
we receive gifts of peace and serenity.
Instinctively, we quest the Holy Grail
as truth enlightens the mind and soul.
She who awakens the bird of thought.
She who opens and clears the chakras.
Reversed, she quits the fool’s journey,
drops Ariadne’s glossy ball of thread,
agrees to return to the starless Tower,
shackles her soul to the Devil himself!
By walking away from love and faith
she cannot follow or find blessedness,
or gain relief from interior emptiness,
remaining blind to all spiritual riches.
The poet tracks the inner star within,
one that guides her to luminescence,
to the mystical, divine call of destiny.
To find meaning and purpose in life
she takes off her personality to shine,
her reward, the light of the Universe.
As she shares deep spiritual wisdom,
we journey ahead towards the Moon.
