Plucking the Phoenix

De-tressed Damsel

The above is a Soulcollage® card I made in 2008. At the time it was the leitmotif for all the boundary-violating relationships I had endured. Astrologically, I am a native with Chiron in Pisces in the Seventh House: it has been a real treat.

Fortunately, when I turned 43, everything changed.

I completed my training in Sacred Contracts & Archetypes, and the process of SoulCollage® was in my peripheral vision. I was also deeply involved in the online communities seeded by Soul Food Cafe; and had a house full of Muses, with matches.

They burned my boats.

As far as Phoenix processes go, the period from November 2004 to August 2008 was a humdinger. A harrowing of Hell more than a dark night of the Soul.

The Muses are back – bedraggled, bemused and a bit singed around the edges.

I am hiding the matches.  That much, at least, I have learned.

With Chiron now in Pisces for everybody for the next 7-9 years, it is my perception that maintaining the integrity of one’s subtle body energies will be vital to supporting a flexible self-reliance as the old ways go up in flames; much like a Viking funeral boat.

Interesting times, Thrill-seekers.

The Damsel is transformed and has another message, that was always there, hidden in plain view:

God has no body now on earth but yours,

No hands but yours,

No feet but yours,

Yours are the eyes through which She is to look out

God’s compassion to the world;

Yours are the feet with which He is to go about

Doing good;

Yours are the hands with which She is to bless men now.

A quirky take on boundaries from Chiron-in-Pisces..

Little Susie was not the best student in Catholic School . Usually she
slept through the class. One day her teacher, a Nun, called on her while she was sleeping.

‘Tell me Susie, who created the universe?’

When Susie didn’t stir, little Johnny who was her friend sitting behind
her, took his pencil and jabbed her in the rear.

‘God Almighty!’ shouted Susie.

The Nun said, ‘Very good’ and continued teaching her class. A little later the Nun asked Susie, ‘Who is our Lord and Savior?’

But Susie didn’t stir from her slumber. Once again, Johnny came to her
rescue and stuck her in the butt.

‘Jesus Christ!!!’ shouted Susie.

And the Nun once again said, ‘Very good,’ and Susie fell back asleep.
The Nun asked her a third question…’What did Eve say to Adam after she
had her twenty-third child?’

Again, Johnny came to the rescue. This time Susie jumped up and shouted:

‘If you stick that damn thing in me one more time, I’ll break it in half!’
The nun fainted.
