Balance

Today is the Vernal Equinox at 7:21pm this evening. It is the Beginning of Spring!
FINALLY!

The equinox brings tales of balancing eggs, multiplying bunnies, baby chicks, the Goddess Ostara and fertility.



I wanted to talk today of balance. This is something that I have a real problem with for most of my Gemini life.
Geminis just don't balance well. They swing and fly from one extreme to the other. Always adventurous, trying somthing new, then spending time in a flash to the repose, the book, the inward search.

The balanced egg is something I admire. But I am comforted that the egg is really only balanced once a year.
Today. There are some who say that this can be done at any time, but many of us have tried and failed. It really only happens today.



As far as emotions and fertility go, I'd like to say that I'm balanced.

But I'd be lying.

I am as fickle as a lioness who has just eaten. It has to be tempting and tantalizing and it has to spark me.  Once I find something I desire, I go for it like taking down a gazelle on the plain. I usually acquire my target, with hard work, lust and perseverance. This goes for jobs, songs, lovers and new pursuits. I don't like boring.
And when I feel denied or neglected....well....balanced is not a word I'd use there again.

Nay. I'm more like Hera.
Keeping and protecting the home, and yet....also like Aphrodite and always seeking the Muse.

Looking ahead to this new spring, the first project of note is that I am going to have surgery this week. Thursday. Cataract in my left, pirate eye. I look forward to it.

Because...............


I look forward to SIGHT and seeing colors and details! But yet, again, I will be "unbalanced" for a bit. For at least 2 weeks, until I can get the right eye done, I will be out of balance with one good eye....
and one bad eye. (better than 2 bad eyes tho....)

I even hope to lose my prescription glasses in this adventure!  I hope to be a new born chick!



I have worn glasses since I was in 3rd grade.

Third grade. When I fell in love for the first time. Sean Coughlin. Of course he was an Irish fellow. He was in 3rd grade too. We were a THING. It is interesting to me that my poor vision started when I first noticed BOYS. Hmmmmm. I love men. I love my men friends. I adore my husbands, both past and present.
Oh, I've had my share of heartbreaks and love affairs. I've been married twice and could've handfasted at least once or twice more in my life of love, but didn't.

My heart has really never known "Balance". More like my scales aren't balanced unless I have a mate.

They seem to help me, ground me, tether me, thrill me, and......
alternately drive me crazy.

But I don't want to know what it's like to NOT have a mate. And yet, life would be simpler.....my choices in mates have always been interesting, I'll give me that much. There is something within my choice of mate that helps to balance me in some odd way. 

Which brings me back to fertility and the bunny :)


Sex is a joyful thing. It is a gift. A wonder and a joy to behold and to share with someone you adore.

Bunnies are skittish, fast thinkers, reactive, and erotic and delicious :)

I wish you a Happy and Blessed Ostara,
with as much fertility as you can bear,
as much safety that would be prudent
and as much balance as you need.

Your ever tippy egg

I think I am one of many out here, living vicariously through your words. Don't stop.
