  • North Node Capricorn/South Node Cancer: you're so used to being there for your family, the people you grew up with, and people being there for you, you've forgotten what it means to actually be someone in the world, to make a success of yourself on your own.
  • North Node Aquarius/South Node Leo: you're so used to being treated like royalty, having so much happiness and joy and readiness to take the world by storm, you've forgotten what it means to not be selfish, to be there for those who have nothing, to relate to people you don't know.
  • North Node Pisces/South Node Virgo: you're so used to being the one who works hard and does all the duties and being realistic, you've forgotten what it's like to dream and actually allow yourself to follow a dream.

The Nodes in the Signs

The North and South Nodes are two points on the Moon. In astrology, these points are considered indicators of karma, lessons, and overall themes within the life.

The South Node marks what we already know. Some see this as lessons we have already learned in our past lives, so we don’t need to learn them again. The sign this Node falls in reveals the energies and knowledge already within us, but it can also reveal our weaknesses. For those who don’t believe in past lives, this is often seen as the lessons we learn quickly, or in childhood.

The North Node, also known as the True Node, marks the lessons we need to learn in this lifetime. The sign this Node falls in reveals what challenges and difficult positions we will be faced with in this life. This is a director, pointing us towards our ultimate destiny or purpose.

Because these Nodes are perfectly opposite, they will fall in opposing signs (ie. Aries and Libra, Taurus and Scorpio, etc.), also known as sister signs.

Solar System: Things to Know This Week

Jupiter, we’ve got quite the photoshoot planned for you. Today, our Juno spacecraft is flying directly over the Great Red Spot, kicking off the first-ever close-up study of this iconic storm and passing by at an altitude of only 5,600 miles (9,000 kilometers). In honor of this historic event, below are 10 things to know about the planet’s most famous feature.

1. A Storm That Puts Others to Shame

The Great Red Spot is a gigantic, high-pressure, ancient storm at Jupiter’s southern hemisphere that’s one of the longest lasting in the solar system. It’s so large, about 1.3 Earths could fit inside of it. And you can bet you’ll get swept away—the storm’s tumultuous winds peak at about 400 mph.

2. How Old Is It? 

The Great Red Spot has been swirling wildly over Jupiter’s skies for the past 150 years—maybe even much longer. While people saw a big spot on Jupiter when they started stargazing through telescopes in the 1600s, it’s still unclear whether they were looking at a different storm. Today, scientists know the Great Red Spot has been there for a while, but they still struggle to learn what causes its swirl of reddish hues.

3. Time for That Close-Up 

Juno will fly over the Great Red Spot about 12 minutes after the spacecraft makes the closest approach to Jupiter of its current orbit at 6:55 p.m. on July 10, PDT (9:55 p.m. on July 10, EDT; 1:55 a.m. on July 11, Universal Time). Juno entered orbit around Jupiter on July 4, 2016.

4. Oh, So Mysterious 

Understanding the Great Red Spot is not easy, and it’s mostly Jupiter’s fault. The planet a thousand times as big as Earth and consists mostly of gas. A liquid ocean of hydrogen surrounds its core, and the atmosphere consists mostly of hydrogen and helium. That translates into no solid ground (like we have on Earth) to weaken storms. Also, Jupiter’s clouds make it hard to gather clear observations of its lower atmosphere.

5. Help From Hawaii 

To assist Juno’s investigation of the giant planet’s atmosphere, Earth-based telescopes lent their helpful eyes. On May 18, 2017, the Gemini North telescope and the Subaru Telescope—both located on Hawaii’s Mauna Kea peak—simultaneously examined Jupiter in very high resolutions at different wavelengths. These latest observations helped provide information about the Great Red Spot’s atmospheric dynamics at different depths and at other regions of Jupiter.

6. Curious Observations 

Observations from Subaru showed the Great Red Spot “had a cold and cloudy interior increasing toward its center, with a periphery that was warmer and clearer,” said Juno science team member Glenn Orton of our Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California. “A region to its northwest was unusually turbulent and chaotic, with bands that were cold and cloudy, alternating with bands that were warm and clear.”

7. Hot in Here 

Scientists were stumped by a particular question: Why were the temperatures in Jupiter’s upper atmosphere comparable to those found at Earth, even though Jupiter is more than five times the distance from the sun? If the sun isn’t the heat source, then what is? Turns out, the storm in the Great Red Spot produces two kinds of turbulent energy waves that collide and heat the upper atmosphere. Gravity waves are much like how a guitar string moves when plucked, while acoustic waves are compressions of the air (sound waves). Heating in the upper atmosphere 500 miles (800 kilometers) above the Great Red Spot is thought to be caused by a combination of these two wave types “crashing,” like ocean waves on a beach.

8. Color Theory 

Scientists don’t know exactly how the Great Red Spot’s rich colors formed. Studies predict Jupiter’s upper atmosphere has clouds consisting of ammonia, ammonium hydrosulfide, and water, but it’s still unclear how or even whether these chemicals react. “We’re talking about something that only makes up a really tiny portion of the atmosphere,” said Amy Simon, an expert in planetary atmospheres at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. “That’s what makes it so hard to figure out exactly what makes the colors that we see.” Over at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, researchers concluded that the ruddy color is likely a product of simple chemicals being broken apart by sunlight in the planet’s upper atmosphere. “Our models suggest most of the Great Red Spot is actually pretty bland in color, beneath the upper cloud layer of reddish material,” said Kevin Baines, a Cassini scientist at JPL.

9. Been There, Haven’t Seen That 

In January and February 1979, NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft zoomed toward Jupiter, capturing images of the Great Red Spot during its approach. Still, we’ve never been as close as we’re about to get during Juno’s flyover on July 10.

10. Simply Beautiful 

This image of a crescent Jupiter and the iconic Great Red Spot was created by a citizen scientist, Roman Tkachenko, using data from Juno’s JunoCam instrument. JunoCam’s raw images are available here for the public to peruse and enhance.Want to learn more? Read our full list of the 10 things to know this week about the solar system HERE.

Ever been confused about Draconic Charts?  We all have been as there is very little information out there about them.  The Draconic chart is the soul chart and for those who believe in Esoteric Astrology indicates past life tendencies relived early in life.  The basic nature of a Draconic Chart shows a summary or who you were and how you acted up until the teenage years.  The draconic chart is the normal chart realigned with north node at 0 degrees Aries.  It is re-aligned based on the sign and degree your natal north node is in.  

A basic example of how a Draconic chart works would be natal North Node in Cancer 0 degrees shifting all of the signs 90 degrees in the Draconic chart. This happens quite simply because to get to 0 degrees Aries for the Draconic chart, every planet is shifted 90 degrees to get to the zero point.  So this shows a very important factor; only planets in signs change in Draconic charts and the aspects completely stay the same.

One must remember the birth chart is a snapshot of what we are growing into in this lifetime.  The planets in signs (and ascendant) show the basic qualities of how we acted up through our teenage years.  You may create a synastry chart between your Draconic and Natal chart to see how your inward planetary energies between youth and adulthood assist or hinder one another.  This method (if you so believe) can show whether you are continuing a theme of a past life or growing away from who you were.

Due to the basic nature of a Draconic Chart it is imperative to understand the degrees of angles stay the same as they are in the natal chart.  The only thing that can change is the sign of the actual planets and the ascendant in the Draconic chart.  This is because the are  based on the degree of the Node in the natal chart and “Shift accordingly”.  

Examples of how North Node natally in the signs play out Draconically :

(Important! The Draconic ascendant must stay in the same elemental family of your natal Ascendant.  If the degrees of the North Node and Ascendant natally cause your draconic ascendant to shift to a different element than your birth ascendant new conditions are created.  In this case I suggest going to the bottom of this post and reading about how Ascendant’s aspecting one another in Draconic/Natal synastry alter the picture.)

If the North Node is in a Fire sign of Aries, Leo or Sagittarius it increases the chances that how you acted in your teenage years carries through to adulthood. Why?  This is because when the Draconic Chart is re-aligned all of the planets in signs will be in a trine-like configuration with the natal planets. They will naturally create someone who may act the same throughout life. This may indicate reliving conditions of a past life so you can carry on something you already started.

Down-to-Earth Love, Strong Emotions, and Technology

July 25

The sun and Mars are still conjunct in early Leo to an exact degree.  So the possibility of taking sudden action is a big possibility since the sun is focused on that.   

Mercury in Leo is at 29 degrees, and soon after going into Virgo, it will go retrograde and come back to this point. This is also the area where the next new moon solar eclipse, will be landing, and it is also the point of the fixed star Regulus.  In this spot, it is connecting to the grand fire trine with NN, Uranus and Saturn. It is closest to being trine to Uranus, which brings unexpected news, insights, brilliant conversations or unusual statements (well that’s everyday, these days).  But it is HIGHLY positive and with Mercury in loving Leo –the sign that rules the heart—and Uranus in Aries—the sign that takes action, there could be unexpected action based on telling someone you love them, engagements, or news of a child or future child.  Positive news about teaching children through technology, in a futuristic way or about something unusual. It is important to the social destiny and also highly positive, and Saturn in the grand trine can help with the ground work—highly positive to make something real in a responsible, practical way that builds the structure so it can be strong.  In Sagittarius, there could be legal matters involved, or higher education and possibly international ties or something that involves foreigners or foreign travel.

Jupiter is square Pluto this week, almost exact today, and while Jupiter and Pluto together can relate to power and wealth, some astrologers believe that this configuration relates to using power and money for the good of others.  Jupiter is beneficence and good fortune and in Libra it is about relationships and justice. Pluto is power and economics and in Capricorn relates to being responsible.  This challenging angle can mean that extreme power, extreme changes (Pluto) can affect harmony in a big way (Jupiter in Libra) that can be stressful and that it is necessary to be responsible in business, government, authority in order to achieve justice, fairness, and positive partnerships.  

Venus is opposite Saturn still moving away from that aspect.  Feet on the ground when it comes to love and money as well as beauty and décor—what we call ours. Not to get too carried away, especially because of peer pressure (among social groups, norms—represented by Gemini), or when seeing things in the media and wanting what you see. Saturn brings things down to reality and in Sagittarius  gives a wider perspective of what is really meaningful and considered to be a higher-level perspective.  

Venus is sextile Eris and close to being sextile to Uranus. Angle of opportunity to take positive unexpected or sudden actions related to meetings or social groups/activities. Possibly a financial benefit connected to future technological activity or developments, or through futures investments. Moon in Virgo is opposed to Chiron.  Feelings and emotional issues regarding health and

Nutrition, getting in shape may be spurred on by pain or feeling unhealthy or a negative issue related to health, wounds or injury, or negative reminders of what health should be.  There could be sensitivities regarding health concerns and those could spur on the feelings about the need to work harder on health and nutrition. 

July 26 

Sun and Mars still exact.  Focus on taking action related to things we love, children, playfulness and fun, or even risks.  Matters of the heart and matters of enjoyment.  Beware of the tendency to be impulsive since there is a connection to Uranus in Aries, still, and that can result in unexpected blow-ups.  

Early on, Neptune is  opposite the moon today, and there could be emotional hindrances to the details related to sensitive issues, health, or feeling at peace. Emotional responses to the small details regarding a creative project could come up, as well.  And perhaps an emotional issue happens related to the health of someone in the music or film industry, or the mental health of someone based on an emotional disturbance related to things being in order, or overwork, or taking care of health and fitness.  It may be a good day for a mental health day away from the ordinary schedule, since mental, physical health as well as the focus being distracted by either a need to just let the imagination run wild while you are doing a detailed or organizational task, or the opposite—maybe you are too focused on the small details when what you need to do is just let it go and see where things lead.  Being more creative in a spiritual way. 

Later, there is a grand cross in the sky formed by the Moon in Virgo, Saturn in Sag, Chiron in Pisces and Venus in Gemini.  There will be challenges related to emotions concerning things like health and nutrition or how things are being organized, or the small details about how things are being done—either related to healthcare, or legal matters, or financial discussions in the news and the reality vs. what is being said. Emotional responses to the details about that will come up as well as stressful issues regarding health, healthcare, pain and injury and some kind of harmony or financial matter.   

On a personal level, emotions could be strong regarding small details, the little things. Saturn in Sag could relate to delays in travel or legal matters, possibly limitations surrounding education or publishing matters.  Chiron in Pisces could bring up sensitive issues related to health, injury or pain, or feelings of compassion for someone in need of healing.  

Venus in Gemini, again, is money or love, values in relation to social groups, meetings and what is in the news.  Gemini can mean there are two things,  or two sides, possibly a need to make a choice of more than one thing. Choosing values over money or love over beauty.  All of these could come up and be affecting the others. This can mean putting out a lot of fires, or feeling as if you need to multi-task, or you have the weight of the world on your shoulders.  Because the moon is in the mix, it will not last more than a day and Venus will also be moving away from this configuration soon, as well.  So the pressure will dissipate in a day or two. 

Jupiter and Black moon Lilith are sextile today, meaning very good possibilities for expanding relationships with powerful international women or women in law or education.  It could also relate on a personal level to great benefits to a relationship or partnership and sexuality while traveling, or women feeling more powerful in relationships/partnerships—possibly a just legal decision goes well regarding women’s issues or because of a powerful woman having a big effect on the outcome.    

Jupiter still squares Pluto.  This does indicate stress between what is just and fair and major transformations taking place in government, business, banking, and the workplace, or the boss, authority figure.   

Pluto is close to being sextile to Neptune and has been on an ongoing basis.  Not exact but still within orb. This can relate to what I talked about last time – reverting to the spiritual and meditation, intuition, and creative issues.  It can be the opportunity for major transformation regarding how people use their spiritual, intuitive and creative gifts, including music, film, art, photography.  There are positive opportunities to make major transformations in these fields and to have a huge impact on the business end of it, the authority side.  Perhaps a new authority figure in the New Age or spiritual world will make a big difference or have a transformative effect.  

July 27

Today Venus in Gemini and Uranus in Aries are at a positive angle of opportunity.  There could be surprises or unusual activity going on that could be influential over finances or love relationships, possibly what you own, or that can make you happy if you take advantage of this possibility.  It could be related to what is reported in the news that offers an opportunity to make money based on unexpected events, or coming into money suddenly or unexpectedly based on something you write or communicate, or on a meeting with someone. Or it could be a positive social connection that is made based on an unexpected turn of events or action. You know the kind of thing that happens in movies when you bump into someone coming out of the elevator, or sitting on the train, or with Uranus, online. 

The Grand Cross is still in place  briefly in Mutable signs, meaning challenges that could transition us into something new. Specifically, Moon in Virgo opposed to Chiron relates to feelings and emotional issues regarding health and nutrition, getting in shape may be spurred on by pain or feeling unhealthy or a negative issue related to health, wounds or injury, or negative reminders of what health should be.  There could be sensitivities regarding health concerns and those could spur on the feelings about the need to work harder on health and nutrition. 

Then the moon will be in Libra for a short time in the evening (EDT), and also be at a positive angle of opportunity to Mars and the Sun in Leo. This could be a big emotional reaction to a relationship issue or to an issue of what is fair and taking action to be more loving, or more happy, or just impulsively taking a risk of some kind—possibly related to a financial gamble– and it turns out well.   We still have the grand trine in fire, but there is a remainder of that grand cross which is now a T-square connecting venus in Gemini to Chiron in Pisces to Saturn in Sagittarius, all at challenging angles, along with the Venus opposition to Saturn. So there could be some tension related to harmony and values among social networks that is at odds with healing and healthcare, helping those in pain, and in making it real vs. putting up walls and restrictions against love, harmony and healing.  This is a struggle that needs to be overcome, and can be as Venus moves ahead and when Chiron moves into Aries.   At that point, there could be less focus on compassion and sensitivity to the pain and injuries and need for healing, and more action being taken to that end.   

July 28 

The main thing happening today is the moon meets up with Jupiter in Libra, and that brings up highly emotional or very strong feelings regarding partnerships, justice, what is fair, what works best to maintain harmony.  And that is at a challenging angle, almost exact, to Pluto in Capricorn.  It represents big business and the government, those in authority and who have the power. There is less focus on emotional issues and fairness and more on practicality and efficiency. Hard work, not working in partnership with others, not a good balance of perspective, and this is going to result in an emotional plea or a huge expression of feelings that challenge the authority to make things fair and just.   To work together and to take into consideration the strong feelings about the need for fairness and positive (world, high-level) partnerships.  

The moon and Jupiter are also at a positive angle of opportunity to Black Moon Lilith, which is related to female power or raw sexuality. So a good possibility, if you do something about it, to have a great sexual day with your partner, that will be extremely beneficial on the emotional scale.  Very good for justice and fairness and feeling good about legal decisions thanks to potential powerful female intervention.   

Venus is still at a positive angle of opportunity to Uranus, so there could be unexpected financial benefits in technology-related, future-oriented activities.  There could also be surprises action taken that could relate in an outcome for love and harmony. Possibly at an activity related to social justice, or at a tech show, or online.   

July 29 

The big player today is the moon at the last degrees of Libra, where it is aspecting Venus in Gemini.  This can mean some feelings or emotions coming up regarding a relationship or partnership is highly positive for communicating in loving ways.  Telling how you feel, in writing and maybe even taking an ad out in the paper or posting it online.  Possibly an emotional proposal that is spread on social media. Another possibility is that the emotional concerns for justice and fairness could receive funding from networking, social media, news reports or social groups that show their love with money to help achieve justice. This could be done in an effort of partnership among several groups.   

The moon is also opposite Uranus in Aries. Unexpected activities or outbursts could create hindering emotional feelings regarding relationships and partnerships.  These could be at opposite ends of the spectrum. But Venus is sextile to Uranus, so the Venus/moon connection could mean that the social activities related to love and money will help iron out this opposition. 

The moon is also at an angle of opportunity to the NN in Leo connecting it to the grand fire trine – another positive connection that brings it in touch with Uranus in a positive way.  So  whatever unexpected outburst or surprise action is opposing the feelings for partnership or justice, there are other aspects in the sky that are calming Uranus in Aries down and turning things into very positive outcomes—so if you’re feeling a sudden surge of emotion because of an unexpected event that seems problematic, rest assured that there are positive forces influencing that scenario and it will work out for the best.  And Saturn in that mix in the grand trine, keeps feet on the ground, and cooler, reasonable, and high-level (in Sag) perspectives. 

North and South Nodes of the Moon

The North and South Nodes of the Moon are placements that take into account the relationship between the Sun, Moon and Earth at the time of our birth. The idea behind these two opposing Nodes of the Moon is that when we are born there are facets of our persona that are more developed (the South Node) and aspects that are less developed (the North Node). These two Nodes are represented by two opposing signs as these poles directly oppose each other. The North and South Node signs change every 18 months and a full cycle of the 12 signs occurs every 18 years.

South Node: Zodiac hometown

The South Node represents the more developed areas of your character that come naturally to you; your comfort zone. These characteristics and behaviours bring you a sense of comfort, familiarity and belonging.

North Node: Pushing the boundaries

The North Node (also called the Ascending Node) represents the areas of your persona that are less developed, these are the qualities that we may need to work on in order to find our inner balance. The North Node provides us with new experiences and challenges. Consciously striving to reduce the imbalance of our North Node can provide us with an increased happiness and fulfilment that we can lack if we count too much on the qualities of our South Node.

Often the South Node is seen as ‘negative’ and the North as ‘positive’ and many believe you should move away from the South Node in favour of the qualities the North Node offers us, others believe that the South Node presents a desire that can only be truly fulfilled through the energies and qualities of the North Node.

South Aries/North Libra: Your Aries South Node brings competitiveness, aggression and an egocentric mind. You want to win and often try to do this through playing dirty, however, you should play to your Libra North Node and embrace the power of compromising and cooperating. You benefit the most from negotiations and working with others than you do from aggressive battles to get what you want.

South Taurus/North Scorpio: South Node in Taurus leads to you being stubborn, materialistic and against change. Release your attachment to luxury and accept your Scorpio North Node and with it the appreciation to the immaterial qualities that Scorpios so value, such as knowledge, intimacy and trust. Through releasing control you will find the happiness and stability you crave.

South Gemini/North Sagittarius: The South Node in Gemini means that you tend to catch yourself gossiping, lying and fixating on details. Release your tendency to overthink, focus on details and second-guess yourself in favour of the bigger picture. Rather than exhausting yourself gossiping devote your energy to wider beliefs, adventure and honesty. 

South Cancer/North Capricorn: Your Cancer South Node makes you nurturing, empathetic and caring. You can often spend more time focusing on the emotions and problems of others rather than you own. You need to allow yourself to step back and allow others to overcome their own problem and focus on yourself for a while. Embrace a less direct method of supporting others and allow them to come to you for help. Help others but do not forget to also help yourself.

South Leo/North Aquarius: The South in Leo focuses greatly on them selves, they crave glory, recognition and respect. Play to your North Node in Aquarius and focus more on connecting with others and sharing your passion to inspire rather than dominate. Your appreciation for praise means you are good at offering praise to others. Get more involved in groups in order to find your team spirit and involve yourself in humanitarian causes.

South Virgo/North Pisces: Your South Node in Virgo brings out a perfectionism in you that can cause great anxiety when things don’t go as you planned. This can lead to you being rigid and disliking not having a sense of order. Embracing your North Node in Pisces, which represents spirituality and intuition, can allow you more creative freedom and allows you to see that things do not always need to follow your strict plan in order to be perfect.

South Libra/North Aries: Your Libra South Node means that you are often compromising and putting others before yourself; being the peacekeeper. The Libra craves relationships but these cannot be functional until they embrace their Aries North Node and learn to think about themselves; embrace your identity, prioritize your own goals and be comfortable being alone.

South Scorpio/North Taurus: Your North Node in Taurus represents an independence that you should strive towards. Reject your longing of fulfilment and empowerment from your relationships with those around you and instead focus on finding your own self worth, values and priorities. Once you have this sense of self actualization you will find your relationships with others will only benefit from it.

South Sagittarius/North Gemini: Your South Node in Sagittarius leaves you with a longing for more, a fixation on the future and a sense of wanderlust. Play to the strengths of your North Node in Gemini and focus more on the importance of the moment, listening to other’s ideas and connecting more deeply with them. Take things one and a time and don’t overload yourself with your need for more.

South Capricorn/North Cancer: The South Node in Capricorn can lead to you being detached from your emotions, focusing more on the outward signs of success and working hard to achieve those. However, you should focus more on your emotional achievements as, if you forget to, you can end up feeling unsatisfied and discontent despite all you seem to have to those around you.

South Aquarius/North Leo: The South Node in Aquarius represents the need to be liked and, therefore, allowing the energy of the group to carry you rather than your own. You should stop trying to find a sense of belonging through people-pleasing and instead allow you North Node in Leo to shine through, stop trying to blend in and express yourself and you will find that the right group of friends will find you soon enough.

South Pisces/North Virgo: The South Node in Pisces brings with it a wish for spirituality and creativity, however, ironically, in order to achieve this you need to stop viewing the world through rose-tinted glasses and focus more on details and facts. Only then will you reach your true spiritual and psychic potential.

North and South Nodes

It’s so interesting what you find on the northern and southern node. In a lot of Astrological texts, the South node is almost seen as a Karmic blemish, or something to disregard or abandon, that is not the case at all. The south node is an important aspect of yourself, and should not be ignored don’t let it rule your life, but you can enjoy it and celebrate it to it’s highest degree, if something is natural to you don’t abandon it, cherish it but pursue new callings and urges and skills, the things associated with the northern node, it is the new direction of your soul and signifies the completion of soul Karma remember you are not a stick figure, you are a collage of complexities, don’t abandon your true self become your best self.

The zodiac sings as the lines of the songs of “IAMX”

Aquarius: Avalanches of the violent disharmony
From the coma of OK have awoken те
In the cover-up of disgraceful abuses
Avalanches of the violent disharmony. |Avalanches|

Virgo: My conscience begs for time
You can’t fight the clock ticking inside
I’m just a bigger baby me
Acting smart oh what irony.      |

Leo: You look good in leather, in bars
Breaking things, breaking hearts
You look good
in pleasure, in hotels
Loneliness is the key to break that spell.  |I’m Terrified|

Pisces: Now I look out into the stars
Into the endless desert calm
To try to tame the beast
Eternity, can you complete me?  |Eternity|

Aries: Your words will live in us
Timelessly insane
Explosive, fresh and wise
Some will just forget
Some will close their eyes
Some will turn the tide.  |I Salute You Christopher|

Taurus: Our little world is only big enough for us
Come home
I’ve lost the will to go on alone
Come home
I don’t know what you want, but I know that you need to be loved.    |Come Home|

Cancer: I am terrified, I think too much
I get emotional when I drink too much
I buy every cry ‘cause I don’t trust
I am terrified.     |I’m Terrified|

Scorpio: The monotony and the rising tide
Is under my skin, is crawling inside
Adrenaline to rewire my mind
I’m only human, I come with knives.  |I Come with Knives|

Libra: If you chose life,
You know what the fear is like.
You welcome addiction,
This is your kingdom.   |Kingdom of Welcome Addiction| 

Capricorn: I know I never feel the same
I know I may never accept the change, but I want…
Happiness…               |Happiness|      

Sagittarius: I need help
I’ve seen bad things and I cannot make them disappear
I want flesh
To bring me happiness cause I feel nothing.     |North Star|

Gemini:  You wear your

Little smiles

With the decadence you suffer every night
All the glitter, all the luxury

But you belong to the industry, baby. |Music People|
