SKYWATCH FRIDAY –Lights Will Guide You Home (Lake Erie)
Music is never far from my mind or my ears, and this past week the sky has been full of music. First we have another of the Aquarian Age occurrences, with a Jupiter / Mars alignment. Remember the lyrics from the song “Aquarius” from the 60s musical, Hair?
When the moon is in the seventh house
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
Low over the horizon in the early morning, the conjunction of Jupiter and Mars (and little Mercury, too) was fading just as the sun was rising. Then at the end of the day, Venus followed the trail they blazed, lighting the evening sky (click to enlarge). It reminded me of how our ancestors used to depend on the stars for their directions at night, for knowing where and when to go, and for knowing how to get back safely as well. The title of this post is a line from the song, “Fix You” by Coldplay – Lights will guide you home.
