Thursday February 14, 2013: When the Moon is in Aries and Venus is in Aquarius, as they are today, a spirit of independence rules. And so in appreciation for today's Aries Moon weaving her beautiful and opportunistic sextile with Venus in Aquarius, enjoy this poem by Khalil Gibran and allow it to escalate your understanding of Valentine's Day 2013.
Love One Another
You were born together, and together you shall be forever more.
You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days.
Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other's cup, but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread, but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.
It's Valentine's Day and it should be a great one because Mars in Pisces is romantic, while the Moon in Aries and Venus in Aquarius add their own free spirited brand of loving to the mix.
Enjoy today because soon the sky will be calling for a deeper commitment.
