STARSCRIPT
*1
Capricorns are antiquarians while Aries' breakouts seem antiantiquarian
.. Friendly to both are God and kind aquarians.
*2
The painter's smock is daubed with the pastels of his palate. He has become one with his painting. While his portrait is concentrated
and Virgo specific his abstract smock is pastels light-full and Pisces pacific.
*3
A flaming feather of the Pluto firebird fell to earth's floor... a sign of God's guarding guiding grace..
for He loves us evermore evermore evermore
*4
33 degree water can be colder than 32 degree ice for it is not barred from entering the skin
When Cancer forgives and has no fear... cancer can disappear
*5
Aries spring each being frees from capricorn's winter freeze
*6
Where scorpio's silent underground springs burst into joy as sagittarian geysers..
there she dwells and everywhere
*7
Neptune opposes red mars.. his angry glow melts near other stars... as daily the sunball
dips his fire... into the sea entire... resurrected mars is more pacific... less target specific

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
