The Queen of My Self


March is the time of fertility leading to the returning light and the rebirth of nature. It is often symbolized by the egg. What hopes and dreams are you preparing to bring forth in the coming spring?

By Mary Saracino
Tonight the Mother Moon rises pregnant in the sky
shining her resplendent light upon the world
dazzling us with the fullness of her being
reminding us that we are never alone.
Some say the full moon triggers madness
unleashes wild desires
untamed hopes and dreams
unchecked passions.
I say the Mother Moon unloosens hope
and the promise of transformation
her light a beacon, urging us inward
to claim our lunar memory
find our way back
to the original womb of consciousness
that soul-seed of the world that
birthed the human psyche
syncopated the beating of the human heart.
