Palettal Prose: Christopher Edwards- Astrology I


open your eyes
spirit child
open your eyes
cold war begins

open the sky
spill out
spirit child
bad moon rising
the eye of the wolf
kill kill kill


oh the land of the free
my melting blue heart
the flowers of time
blowing in the wind

creatures of lust
blood vomit shooting star
surrounded by surrender


came home from work
with a briefcase full of money
and a hungry belly

did you hear the news today?
an airplane went down
lost in some remote forest

killer whale costume
a sea of red
a sea of blood


the near bright future
i love you so much
i love you like i love no others
i love you like a thousand dead mothers

in tangerine summer
i have loved you like a sister
i will love you like a brother

the future is ours
ours to create
ours to destroy

Manifesting in Royal Vibrations

Typical Leo prances into the spotlight today with both the sun and moon playing in this magnificent sign. Today’s New Moon provides the perfect opportunity to get to the heart of the action. Transmuting directly to the Lion-esk core, let your inner light shine bright. Step into the spotlight and bask in the time spent here. As the king of the jungle, lions are known for their boisterous personalities so if you have a habit of hiding in the shadows, now’s your chance to push your boundaries and transform your quiet purrr to a deafening roar. As much as Lions love to be the center of it all don’t forget to offer your love to your lovelies today because Lions have an insatiable generosity. They love big with their hearts pinned to their sleeve for all to admire and enjoy.

New Moon

New Moon’s are ideal for manifesting and with the royal cat’s energy nuzzling us forward,, today’s positive vibrations can carry us through the rest of the month. Take a moment today to sit in silence and think about what you want. If you can, go outside. Be specific and keep it simple. Now imagine what it would feel like to have this thing. Close your eyes and visualize yourself in that place. How do you feel? What are you doing? How is your life different? Once you’ve had a chance to sit with this feeling and become familiar with it, write on a piece of paper what it is you wish to manifest, then go outside under the dark new moon (if you’re not there already:), find a space that resonates with you, and burry the paper in the ground. With this as the moon waxes through the month, your wish will grow with it.


SuperMoon StoryTime

Today the watery emotions of Cancer are evaporated by Leo’s burning fire, bringing with it a more playful energy for the remaining days of summer. Boastful lion never fails to purr when granted his rightful compliments however, be wary of your pride in the coming weeks, do not allow yourself to become unnecessarily pouty. We can’t always be the centre of everyone’s affection but the charm and added generosity of the month makes it a little easier. The moon transits away from responsible Capricorn and into collaborative Aquarius just in time for today’s full moon. The final of three supermoons in a row, I wrote at length about super moons during June’s full moon. For the next two and a half days we will be reminded of the sacredness of working together and generating collective well-being. It’s an opportune time to make new connections and strengthen old ones. She makes it easier to be a team player and grow global consciousness. Take time to review your life philosophy and share its intimacy with the close ones of your life.

In honour of today’s full super moon and to mark the end of a cycle of three, I’d like to share with you a story written during last year’s ‘extra’ super moon in Scorpio.

“Before reaching the highest point of her trajectory and readying to claim her majesty, she whispered an invitation to them from outside. Unable to resist her gentle, yet seductive lure, they braved the frigid air to greet her. Lost in enchantment they basked in her ever-growing brightness, communing with their finest crystal in the sanctuary of their quiet outdoor cathedral. The songs and tones emanating from their giant caldron filled the massive space as it crawled across the still frozen body of water. Their visit was a brief yet satisfying introduction to what was still to come.

The evening to follow held the anticipation of her arrival. This night, they stayed out of doors so not to keep her waiting. As the early shimmers of her beauty began to reveal themselves, they struggled to raise their eyes and greet her in her fullness. Now, here at her strongest, she projected the opposing forces this time of year represents. Possessed by the subtle poison of a scorpion she cast her shadow over the land to blanket the sky with her light. As it glared down on them, they hypnotically followed as she drug them about through both darkest and brightest corners of the forest. As the psychedelics enhanced their already possessed state, they were transformed into the dark pixies of the night. Treading their way about, they convened with the woods, who raised their limbs beyond their usual height in competition for her attention, offering their devotion. The towering pine, declared his majesty as the grandest of the grove as he swayed with her in a hypnotic silence.

Centered amongst, they stood in their pixie state, gazing with their own limbs outstretched, offering prayer with the others while exhaling in the breath of the world. The communal conscious heartbeat percussioned as the sphere of the world sighed in her presence and the knowledge there would be no equal in even the years to come. Then, as quickly as she arose, she traversed the sky to find the snow-capped  mountains and make her way along and behind, leaving them bright-eyed and warm-hearted tucked within the sacred space of her wake. Slowly, the magic stilled and the shadows subsided. They returned to their hearth and human state having captured the energy of the night within their selves.”

SuperMoon: Purging and Responsibility

Today’s full Moon shifts from fiery Sagittarius into Earthy Capricorn for the next two and a half days. The second of three super moon’s in a row, it’s said to be the most ‘super’ of five in 2013. Supermoons are defined as “…… a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit.” There tends to be 4-6 a year. This one however, is the closest moon to the earth in 2013.
Sagittarius had us shaking and moving about both inside and out bringing out our youthful, restless, more childlike selves. A great time to explore and use our bodies, we’re given an opportunity to address our situations with fresh honesty and philosophy. Through that honesty however, we have to be aware of loosing tact.
Shifting into Capricorn later in the day our fire turns to earth as we move our focus towards accomplishing our goals and putting in the required effort that we may reap the benefits of a job well done. It grants us an opportunity to accomplish short-term goals as we learn to manage our own personal world while leaving others to manage themselves.
Combined with a Sun in watery Cancer, we appreciate the security and comfort of family and home. Like all water signs (Scorpio, Pisces, Cancer), the next month gifts us with a steady flow of sensitivity and emotion. It’s important at this time not to take things too seriously as Capricorn, combined with Cancer brings out a more serious tone. Don’t forget to play and enjoy the season! Do however, take advantage of the opportunity to accomplish things you may have been putting off at home or in your relationships.


Full Moons are an excellent time for purging anything that may not be working for you. Clearing the clutter from your life both within yourself and in your surroundings make space for something else. It allows an opportunity to invite into your life what may serve you better while removing what you no longer need. Clear your cupboards, remove clutter, clean out your closets to allow the energy in your home to move freely.
I’ve included a purging meditation for you below. Have a pen and paper handy. Begin my getting into a comfortable position either seated or laying down.
“Close your eyes and take a two cleansing breaths through your nose. Invite any guardian angels, spirit helpers, animal spirit guides, or ancestors you may work with to join you at this time. Throughout this process, remember that they are here with you, protecting you and keeping you safe.
Imagine now a beam of light coming from the heavens through your crown chakra, down your spine, and coming out through the root chakra as it descends to the earth, bringing together Heaven and Earth.
Take another deep breath in and as you exhale, picture a ball of light in your heart chakra. It can be any colour or shape. It may appear to you simply as white light. Sit with it a moment and enjoy its warmth. With your next exhale, allow the light to expand from your heart to surround you completely. Take a moment to feel the warmth of its cocoon. Notice how good it feels in this place. With your next exhale, allow the light to expand even further, surrounding the space you are in and out into the world.

From the corner of your eye, something catches your attention. It is familiar, something inside yourself or in your life and you recognize it immediately as something that is not serving you. It may be a thought or emotion that holds you back. It may be a frustration or a damaged relationship.
If feelings of fear or discomfort arise, acknowledge them, then draw from the light you’ve surrounded yourself with. Draw from the love and wisdom of your guides and allow them to carry that weight for you.
Walk up to whatever it is that is not serving you and face it. Allow yourself to feel any emotion that may arise. Acknowledge it and tell it there is no longer a place for it in your life.
Visualize the string you feel between you and it. In your hands, grab hold of it where it joins on your side and untie the knot that binds it to you. Do not cut the string but untie it and release it that there are no lingering pieces attached to you.
Note how you feel. Is there an open space where it used to reside? Has a weight been lifted? How does that feel? What may fit where it used to be?
Allow yourself the time you need to return to your self. Thank your helpers for making the journey with you and for protecting you. When ready, slowly bring movement back into your body and open your eyes.”
Once complete, write down what you’ve chosen to purge from your life. A great ritual to include with this is to burn this paper immediately thus releasing it from your life. Remember, you have a wonderful piece of open real estate where it used to reside! Take a moment to reflect on what may be able to go there instead!
Happy full moon, don’t forget to take a peak and have a howl!
From my heart to yours, Jenn

Mercury Retrograde: Transportation and Miscommunication

According to Astrology, Mercury is the ruler of transportation and communication. Depending on where it was situated in the sky at the time of your birth, the way you deal with these things will vary. Follow me? If not, this is ok. For today, what matters are the three times a year when Mercury goes retrograde for a few weeks at a time. ‘Retrograde’ sounds rebellious and it is. At this time, a planet looks like it is rotating backwards through the sky and as a result, its corresponding energy, transportation and communication in this case, also moves askew.

When this slippery little minks slides into reverse, you can expect everyday, simple activities to take much longer. Suddenly your car may not start, emails are ‘lost’, flights are cancelled (even more than normal). You will likely feel as though you simply cannot get anywhere on time and your message is continuously misinterpreted.

Mercury God

I tend to struggle through most retrogrades and this particular one was no exception. In a random decision to go to a far off land to experience a strange new music festival with a group of friends, we experienced both collectively and as individuals, the frustrations of Mercury’s mischief. Here we go…

My dog sitter fell through in the first three hours.

Upon arrival at the hotel, I went to pay for my cab, only to realize my wallet was nowhere to be found. Nowhere. In fact, I could visualize its exact location. On the airplane seat.

The next morning, we tried to rent the car. Between one friend’s lost credit card, another friend’s maxed credit card, and mine somewhere in the air, we spent three hours at the car rental place still without a car. Of course the one with the credit card didn’t do internet banking so there was no way to get him money and on and on it went expending every drop of creative thinking skills the three of us could muster.

We go to the airport to join the rest of our group. One is missing. Turns out, somehow, someway, her passport ended up back on the plane from San Diego to Las Angeles and she would have to stay the night waiting for it. We still don’t quite know how that happened.

We take several wrong turns, including through the same toll booth twice and having to pay each time.

I try to get assistance for my lost wallet and of course my airline is closed. Every other airline in the whole airport is open, but mine is only open from 4 am to 7 am. Handy.

Driving through the mountain roads, we get a flat tire. We don’t however notice until the boys, who are not the most industrious bunch to begin with, are six beer in. The car does not want to be jacked and when finally off the ground, the largest of the group gets in, thus knocking the whole thing off again.

We misplaced our friend before even leaving the city. There wasn’t room for him, then there was but we couldn’t get ahold of him, and when we finally get there, we find out he’d shown up the night before and in a confused state of frustration left back to the city giving up on us. It was at this point we realized we had a major communication problem/curse. Thankfully, we decided to straighten that out and after a few very heartfelt emails, he surprised us a couple days later with his beautiful arrival. We couldn’t have been happier…

Apparently it rains in the rain forest. A lot. And then there’s mud. So.Much.Mud. And there’s not getting away from it. While most surrendered to the elements and went barefoot and fancy free, I just couldn’t for the life of me and spent my evenings cursing the forgotten boots. Struggling along in flip flops, I inevitable slipped and slide, and got stuck thus breaking said flip flops. The new pair I’d just bought since the others had mysteriously gone missing pre-departure. Then they broke and I gave up. Went home for the night, pouting over wet feet.

With the rain goes the internet. Apparently it just can’t keep it together through torrential downpours. This is fine as 90% of my Facebook messages throughout this space in time either failed to send or simply disappears.

The others were misinterpreted.


Thankfully on the way home the wallet was found. It took crying, pleading, and threatening but it returned.

The rest of the ride home was relatively uneventful though the communication hasn’t gotten any better.

Today however marks the last day of this round of retrograde and though we will continue living in it’s shadow for a few days to come, the worst of it is over and we can rest well...until the next, June 26-July 20. Enjoy!
