they manifest in relationships. Virgo Moon?
My Scorpio Moon is intrigued -- how does
one nurture someone with a strong Virgo?
Help them clean their house? We laugh
and chat, and I wonder what on earth I am
doing. He lives in Perth and is showing only
polite conversational interest. Stop flirting
He spots an old friend and remarks
that she's lost weight. He spends the next
intense hour connecting with her. Guess
I'll put the flirting away again. I am amused
at myself. Had I been thinking myself old
and past it? Where, then, did the "Oh, a nice
man, put on your pretty face" come from?
Even if not successful, I apparently think I
still "got it".
I chat to a woman at the same table.
We are Facebook friends. We have never
spoken more than a word or two in person,
and only then at a Mind, Body, Spirit festival,
We click, get on like best buddies, have
an outrageous evening. We discuss if there
will ever be a reality TV show for prostitutes.
I suggest So You Think You Can ****. We
fall about laughing. Earthy Taurus Moon
meets earthy Capricorn Sun and Mercury.
The earthy humour stomps around in big
I find I am not my usual impatient
self with the children present. Nearly all
are dressed in fairy skirts and wings. One
toddling boy has an old grey fairy skirt on
and a tie dyed T shirt. A balloon tied to one
wrist completes his ensemble. He staggers,
bow legged from his nappy, around the
dance floor, determined to make a get away.
Over excited girl fairies run, screech, fling
themselves around. I am softening, now that
my own children are nearly grown. I admit
to myself that I miss their younger years.
I surprise myself. I am not clucky, but as I
watch the children run about, I think that
I am looking forward to being a grandma.
As close as two years ago, you could not
have wrung that statement from me. I am
not, and never have been, a mumsy mum.
Perhaps I will be a mumsy granny.
The music starts. Wendy casts circle,
summoning the four elements, and creating
quieter fairy songs, and the children twirl,
toss balloons and ribbons, and sway to the
music. The adults, for the most part, sit and
sing to her familiar songs. Wendy is dressed
as a mushroom fairy, her cello player as a
beautiful elemental in white and flowers.
My new friend and I rise and take to
the dance floor, shoes kicked under the
table. Within minutes, other adults are
on the floor. The room is full of swaying,
dancing bodies letting loose. This is no
disco, where one steps from side to side,
occasionally moving the arms, or sticking
a hip out. Full scale twirling, arm flinging,
whole body undulations are de rigueur.
I use every bellydance move I have, and
then relax down into a more fluid, non-
denominational dance. My body moves to
the drum beat, my arms to Wendy's voice.
We are all fairies, elemental beings,
swept up in song and Solstice energy.
Wendy sings her powerful song "Hecate".
The dancers sing along. Yes, I feel myself as
Hecate, at the crossroads in my life. I am
ready to be a force in the world, I am ready
to more fully reveal who I am, the power
that walks with me. Yes, I will write my
truth. Yes, I will dance my truth. I am ready
to reclaim myself as Healer. I feel these
thoughts settle on me, like a mantle, like
fairy wings. They begin to root across my
back. I move, and they move with me.
My arms move in a "climb the rope"
snakelike manner. I am reaching upwards.
Come Solstice, come fairies, come
crossroads, come Oberon and Titania --
renew me, cleanse me, heal me.
I awake from my trance in time to hear
Wendy saying that her next song will be her
last for the evening, and it is a salute to the
stars and the earth. Time to ground, so that
we may all travel safely home.
I slow my movements, finally swaying
in one spot, before returning to my table
and putting my shoes on. Shoes, for a Fairy
Queen? But even a Fairy Queen must walk
on pavement to get to her chariot and drive
I am limp by the time I arrive home,
and go straight to bed. I dream strongly,
getting much advice about how to conduct
my working life next year, so that I work
smarter, not harder.
I awake, feeling connected, younger,
A transformative night, indeed. ●
