taurus rising: slow to love and sprout as daisies over the winter. but from a pure venus heart. affection is enduring. five key senses
gemini rising: as bright and cheerful as the sun, as changeable as the moon, as mischievous as mercury, as curious as pluto, as logical as saturn, as hilarious as jupiter
cancer rising: a cardinal inferno snowflake blowing in the winter winds, a warming embrace, a channel into pure creative essence, they peel the tapestry of life to reveal true beauty
leo rising: eyes and heart are wide open, sensitive, and ready to be touched, cherished, and adored. mango swirls of naked sunshine, every corner is an alter, every star is a spotlight
virgo rising: sacred geometry joins every scar and freckle like constellations of maths and magic. the mercury lamp, swift and sweet, humble and modest
libra rising: wind blows through a dandelion, planting flowers in peoples hearts like strawberries and cream splendour, writing lyrics in every crevice

sagittarius rising: an ocean bathe, a mountain wind, a universe kiss, thread lovingly with woven laughter, glow, jupiter philosophy, and fortune cards
capricorn rising: resplendent and quaint, a wavelength of ambition and inspiration, earth bound architect, a celestial CEO with the heart of an old soul
aquarius rising: an electric blue dance, losing yourself in the sway of held hands and psychedelic beats, time traveling light years away to reunite you with your existence on many dimensions
pisces rising: tear stoked and a heart coloured in idealism and spiritual worship, wind chimes of delicate soul paint and a vessel back to heaven

petunia - china teacups, dandelions blowing in the wind, rain clouds gathering. roads that lead to nowhere, cats yowling, bloody handprints. thin fingers, sour tastes, chain link fences. bouquets of flowers, pretty ceilings, lying down and looking up at the sky.

narcissa - the bloom of blood, car lights lighting up a dark road. the clink of champagne, blacks and greys, elegance. long silhouettes, rainy days, white roses, pearl necklaces. jade, dark corners, monochrome, pictures of strangers.

bellatrix - the way the word slaughter sounds, ugly laughter, the flick of a knife. the sound of the sea, words of power, blood stains, the waxing and waning of the moon. the sand between your toes, foreign swear words, guillotines, rolling a dice.

Dandelion

Dandelion is said to be used to call upon air spirits. Blowing dandelion seeds into the wind is said to carry a message to a lover. The root is use for ritual involving Hecate. Gathering the yellow flowers of dandelion on St John’s Eve (June 23) was seen as a charm against hostile magic. It can also be used in spells for protection & vision work. Dandelion wine is a great additional to magical meals.

Ah. The humble little dandelion. Beloved by herbalists, hated by gardeners. Whatever your opinion is, everyone knows who dandelion is. The spirit of dandelion came to me, at the liminal hour of dawn (this is the time I often meet and commune with plant spirits), He appeared as a little lion, no biggest then a kitten. His body was made up of leaves and his face & mane the bright yellow flower, and he is that proudest little guy you ever did meet. Up front, feet apart, chest out and head high.He was very eager to share his lesson, if fact he kept me awake for hours, pestering me to go and write it! So Dante Leon (he proudly told me his name) I’m finally write this post in light of the events of today. The lesson of dandelion is. Be bold. Be proud. Be you. Dandelions say “Be who you are! Shine shine shine! That why you’re here. To be you!”. How you seen a dandelion, they grow and thrive where ever they pop up and they don’t give a shit what anyone else think about it! They open they’re little faces and say “Look at me! I am a little sun. See how I shine!” and dandelion encourages us to do they same.
