the rain represents the emotions at that time

☾ ☽

The Full Moon is in Taurus ~~
time is placid…flowing like a melting milk pot. music sounds slower.

it has been raining here, dark, the taurus moon melancholy, literature seems to sing, theres lethargy but theres no need to sleep, there’s something like a night lullaby

a slow process of emotion, a feeling of renewal and deep reflection. the taurus-scorpio axis is one of value, material and physical. it’s also a highly fertile time, the taurean archetype representing the fertility principle, scorpio’s reproductive ruling, and the feminine lunar processes. this is not only in terms of pregnancy, but also giving birth to ideas relayed from the bottom of consciousness, creative melodies, and regenerative purification that give new light to old perspectives and previous experiences that are wearing us down and causing us to carry a dead weight

it’s a time to indulge. midnight icecream. sensual luxuriation. bath bombs. meditation. and sitting under the full moon

dont’ forget to put your crystals out ;)

Here’s something to think about:

This is Gintoki when he’s released from prison by Yaemon:

He’s weakened, (they probably starved him in there), and can barely stand. Judging from his clothes and the state he’s in, we can conclude that the meeting with Otose in the snow takes place right after:

The anime seems to confirm this by adding the snow to the escape scene (it’s hard to tell if it’s snowing in the first mangacap, but let’s assume that it is):

And then you get this nice little parallel here:

There’s snow when he first meets her, and rain when he finds her for the ‘last’ time. Snow being a symbol of hope, a blank slate; rain being a metaphor for loss and death.

However, snow can also represent repressed emotions and the desire to confront them. Here the rain can be a much needed emotional release; the breaking point. And judging by the pivotal scene hereafter with Shinpachi and Kagura, we can conclude exactly that.

(Nice touch there, Sorachi.)

When Gintoki makes the promise to protect Otose, he uses it as a tool for redemption. A sense to keep on living. When that seemingly ‘fails’, he tries to retreat, but it’s only when those closest to him say what he needs to hear that he can start to move on emotionally.

We have not lost anything yet. So you must not lose your soul.

Strengthening others with pretty little philosophies about life is easy, but actually following them through yourself is the most difficult thing there is.
