Rx. Carry On, Love Is Coming

Time heals everything, I don't need anything.

A Black woman artist holds the top spots on country music charts and planetary bodies are coming into perfect alignment. Portals do open and things will change.

After a week in the car listening to Beyonce's requiem for America, it's the song Just for Fun which sits in Risa's heart this week and offers its medicine.

'Cause time heals everything
I don't need anything
I pray to her
I pray to her

You know those times when you try to do something good — like ready your garden for Spring — or something just for fun — like make music in a new genre — and you are met with so much resistance it breaks your heart or lays your flat out on your back? This week we resist the urge to see it as a sign, and we lean into the thermodynamics of it all instead. Bodies at rest want to stay at rest, systems, genres, and gardens have inertia and push back hard against attempts at change. But time heals everything, and we don't need anything. Just rest, and then another step, and trust that momentum builds. Bodies in motion want to stay in motion. Our gathering magic is a fundamental property of matter and energy in this magical universe.

Amy injured herself while trying to build a garden to feed her family and her community, but bolstered by Cayelin and Zoe's Eclipse message that fear can be turned into strength, and Crosby, Stills Nash & Young's Carry On, Amy made a donation to World Central Kitchen and remains undaunted in the cultivation of hope.

A new day, a new way, and new eyes to see the dawn. Carry on, love is coming. Love is coming to us all.

If you are listening to this around the time of Monday's eclipse, then we invite you to join in the collective working described below, or simply to stand with your arms raised, palms open. Lift your arms and imagine us, all around the world, lifting up our arms to help take a gasping breath just like you're supposed to do when you are choking. Open up your passageways and let in the air. Be determined to survive, and feel us by you, because we are there. Let the eclipse open a portal for world-changing love to pour into our selves, and our cells, and our networks, and webs, or let it at least be a moment when you stop. And take a breath.

I insist on honouring my hopeful imaginings, not just my dystopian ones.

Eclipse Magic - Knot of Isis

"With this sunrise reading of The Knot of Isis on April 8, 2024 (the day of the total Solar Eclipse), we give our love and devotion, energy and hope as an offering to Isis and her Beloved, Osiris, to support the magic of their Love in restoring balance and aiding a world badly in need of healing. We do not seek to use this energy to manifest personal boons, but rather to acknowledge the Eclipse as a powerful portal that connects us to the Divine and the Web of Life around us that is their manifestation of Love in our world.

In reciting the Knot Of Isis we humbly seek to honor the opportunity to reflect and magnify the origins and essence of Isis in this place of worship to Her. That although Her temple is removed from its land of origin, Her magic holds strong in the stones and may She accept this prayer of respect and adoration offered by us as we seek to reflect Her in this physical realm of time and space." ~ Fiona Horne

“Signal boosting” suggestions:

Connect to the Genius Loci (the local Spirits of the Land) and solicit their support in sharing this love and offering through the web of Life

Charge seeds with your intention, and plant them or scatter them to the birds

Speak it over a feather or leaf, and release it into the wind

Speak it over a bowl or glass of water, and pour it back into a natural source to send love through the local waterways

Ground with your back to a tree, and send your love into the Earth Mother through your energetic roots

THE READING: “The Knot of Isis”

"At the ends of the universe is a blood red cord that binds Life to Death, Will to Destiny, and each of us to the other. Let the knot of that red sash, which cradles the hips of the Goddess, bind in us the ends of life and dream. We are each of us with our own share of hopes and misgivings. Let our thoughts lay together in peace. At our deaths let the bubbles of blood on our lips taste as sweet as berries. Give us not consolation, give us magic. Give us the spell of living well.

We rise and walk. The sky arcs ever around and the world spreads itself beneath our feet. We are bound Mind to Mind and Heart to Heart.No shadow exists between our footsteps and the will of Goddess. We walk in harmony, heaven in one hand, earth in the other. We are the knot where the two worlds meet. Red magic courses through our veins like the blood of Isis - magic of Magic, spirit of Spirits. We are proof of the power of Goddess. We are dust and water walking."
