So I just posted about Mars newly into Aquarius being the marker of the great, visionary, authentically free thinking male archetype -and how that's not exactly playing out on the world stage right now, politico wise.
And lo and behold one of our most genuinely visionary, authentic, free thinking, stunning poets has just left us. RIP Leonard Cohen, a gentleman and scholar, a truly great artist who reminds us all to just get on with walking our talk with quiet, powerful integrity and sans the bullshit bravado we've been recently fed.
Interestingly, Mr Cohen's natal Mars was at one degree Aquarius (creative visionary placement); same as it is in the sky right now. So Leonard left us right on his Mars return... I could say (on a soul level) he opted out in protest at the shitty direction our collective psyche just turned...but that would be unworthy.
I can't run no more
with that lawless crowd
while the killers in high places
say their prayers out loud.
But they've summoned, they've summoned up
and they're going to hear from me.
Ring the bells that still can ring ...
Because we are all being forced to take responsibility for our own beautiful redemption right now -and he left us with that message/ legacy of his body of work resonating in our ears as we speak... I hope that liberating Mars in Aquarius is powering his soul as it travels through that crack in everything, where the light gets in, toward his next beautiful incarnation. Blessed be Mr Beautiful x
You can add up the parts
but you won't have the sum
You can strike up the march,
there is no drum
Every heart, every heart
to love will come
but like a refugee.
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.
