under an aries moon

the new moon in aries is the time of year for new beginnings. according to the julian calendar, new year's day was celebrated on march 25 - a date associated with the conception of jesus, the vernal equinox, and the spring moon.

under the steady pattering of yesterday's rain, the earth is turning into puddles of mud and patches of startling green, the woods are noisy in the mornings now, and even the peepers have woken. the chamomile bed made it through the winter, the chives are poking their way up through the mulch of pine needles. across from the chamomile, the artemesias preen in soft gray puffs.

two novels have shouldered their way to the forefront - the political thriller, which is now over 10,000 words, and the fantasy, where the characters are revealing themselves in ever more lurid detail. i have an article to write on fairies, and one on raising daughters.

today im doing readings using the new tarot deck i was asked to review. i think after today i will be able to write it...tarot cards are like languages... some are easier for different people to speak than others...

but this morning, before i do anything else.... i am determined to finish my writing room!!

and furthermore, the war must end...blessed be.

I hope the readings go well.

Are you going to post a picture of the new writing room?
