Hold fast to dreams, For if dreams die, Life is a broken-winged bird That cannot fly. Langston Hughes
Something was dead in each of us, and what was dead was Hope. Oscar Wilde
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope. Martin Luther King Jr.
Lift me like an olive branch, be my homeward dove. Leonard Cohen
A secret is like a dove, when it leaves my hand it takes wing. Saudi Arabian Proverb
Censure pardons the ravens but rebukes the doves. Latin Proverb
I got the message. All of us get the message, sooner or later. If you get it before it’s too late or before you’re too old, you’ll pull through all right. Nat King Cole
For a start, Mars is exactly square this new Moon from Scorpio. The messages from both the new Moon and Mars are about just that - messages. It is a curious new Moon as it can imply the need to filter the things you say, the things you think, the things you relay to others, the gossip you're ready to either believe or pass on, etc. It's about messages. The new Moon degree is about 'doves', doves bring messages, and Mars is on a degree that talks about 'parrots' bringing messages. Mars on 'The Parrot' degree can have us shaking our heads around what is being said, heard, passed on, gossipped about. The trick is to employ our filters and to see what is real, useful, healing, necessary, etc, and what is pure noise. Mars squaring the new Moon can have us making some pretty strong decisions and some of them can be rash, or, we may be on the receiving end of someone's anger. It can be a good idea to count to ten, revise, revisit, renew, reevaluate before we react.
