A Week Inspired by Sagittarius and Mercury

Standard
The month ahead is already off to an exciting start, with a fiery new Moon in Sagittarius on December 2 that could help you tap into your dreams! Let the courage of your convictions drown out any naysayers as you think big about your future. Sagittarius will bring adventure, but it will also help you plan thoughtfully for the long-term — an ideal combination for taking a leap into the unknown!

Discussions could turn interesting on December 3, as Mercury and Mars decide to bring tensions to the surface. However, letting others know your grievances — and vice versa — can help you clear the air and move forward.

Mercury then pops up again the next day, December 4, when it flits happily into Sagittarius. Whatever you’re thinking will flow freely out of your mouth, and while some of your thinner-skinned friends could find this somewhat obnoxious, others will find your honesty refreshing and useful.

Mercury puts in one final show on December 6, when it squares off against hazy Neptune. Straight answers will be hard to come by … especially since the questions they attempt to address will be equally vague. Plan on being productive before and after this transit, so when it arrives you can simply sit back and daydream the day away.

 

“Mouthful of Forever”

Standard

I am not the first person you loved. You are not the first person I looked at with a mouthful of forevers. We have both known loss like the sharp edges of a knife. We have both lived with lips more scar tissue than skin. Out love came unannounced in the middle of the night. Out love came when we’d given up on asking love to come. I think that has to be part of its miracle. This is how we heal. I will kiss you like forgiveness. You will hold me like I’m hope. Our arms will bandage and we will press promises between us like flowers in a book. I will write sonnets to the salt of sweat on your skin. I will write novels to the scar on your nose. I will write a dictionary of all the words I have used trying to describe the way it feels to have finally, finally found you. And I will not be afraid of your scars. I know sometimes it’s still hard to let me see you in all your cracked perfection, but please know; whether it’s the days you burn more brilliant than the sun or the nights you collapse into my lap your body broken into a thousand questions, you are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. I will love you when you are a still day. I will love you when you are a hurricane. – Clementine von Radics
