“With Pisces as its ruling sign, the Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods.

The sun is in Pisces, there’s a full moon about, it’s raining, seeds are sprouting, birds are nesting in the eaves, our Grandfather Hummingbird has died with a new generation fighting for dominion in the backyard (one looks just like Thuggee)…and my brain is itching and racing a million miles a minute in eighty-four directions with more inspiration than I can process! There are pieces of paper everywhere, covered with frantically scribbled notes of thoughts snatched from the air randomly as they whirl by in a torrent of inspiration. I’m in ADHD heaven ladies and gentlemen. My muse is in high gear and she has no mercy. There are files and files of new photos on my pc, downloaded in the last couple days: pictures of green velvet scarves, plum silk flowers, vintage goodies, plant names, collages, instructions, recipes, poems, bat skeletons, gothic snippits and Victorian poisons. I cannot sit still, I cannot write anything that makes sense to anyone but me…and I don’t care – it’s too good. These moments will not last, I will back to reality soon as the moon begins to wane again. I’ll make sense tomorrow. In the meantime, know that I am happily lost among the verdant dreams of the “Quickening Moon” and I’ll come back to earth when I need to.
What’s happening in the garden:
Figs are bursting forth with wild abandon
The jasmine is nothing shy of magical
The pole peas are joining the party
Lucie’s favorite ‘bear paw’ succulents are blooming
There’s a lot more happening out there than that…but if I sit here and write about it, I might miss somethi….
