Moon Art, a Moon Poem, and Moon-Pluto!
There have been and remain many ‘John Freemans’ in the world and one is Georgian poet John Freeman born on January 29, 1880 in London, died September 23, 1929, a fellow who left a successful insurance career for the sake of Poetry.
Here’s a lunar-esque verse by John Freeman lauding the celestial lantern that lights our earthly paths, titled ‘It was the lovely Moon’:
‘It was the lovely moon – she lifted
Slowly her white brow among
Bronze cloudwaves that ebbed and drifted
Faintly, faintlier afar’
(No, my drawing above doesn’t begin to illustrate Freeman’s poem for it would never be so brazen as that–but I do admit to using Luna as a main theme since 2005 over at Secret Moon Art!)
As I type here in Georgia USA (edt), the lovely Moon sails through the last degrees of Gemini and will reach the accustomed and nurturing waters of her own sign, Cancer, at 2:53 pm edt.
Then at 12:10 am edt (9.21), Luna @ 4Can54 will line up across the Cancer-Capricorn axis (Security-Career) and oppose powerful, spying Pluto which will create a Cardinal Grand Cross of planets between Moon, Pluto, Venus, and Uranus.
This indicates potentials for sudden relationships with seedy characters of dubious reputation so watch out around midnight if you plan to hook up for all may not be as it seems and you may not like how things turn out.
And with Venus and Uranus across the Partnership axis (Libra-Aries), break-ups may occur in relationships weighed down by lots of old emotional baggage (Moon-Pluto.)
Actually, compromises of all sorts are usually quite difficult or lacking under a Moon/Pluto stand-off and defiance of authority may be noted. Great demands are made and partners may become alienated especially with Venus/Uranus involved in the planetary pattern. Being eccentric or erratic with money may also be part of the picture.
In Politics and Business, the Moon/Pluto combo shows such things as how the people view crime, war, and internal secrecy, the role of women in controlling self-destructive impulses, and popular promises concerning the end to war, waste, and in appeals to the people. (Munkasey.)
Moon/Pluto contacts tend to encourage violence and crime and women are often the targets; exerting controls over criminals and terrorists may be featured in the news, and misuse of resources (Deficit Commission) are obsessed over if not actually cleared up.
Yes, deep (Pluto) feelings (Moon) surface under passionate, even romantic Moon/Pluto contacts but it may be better to step back and take a deep breath before proceeding late tonight!
