A Poem for Libra

by Astrologer Ian Waisler

Try to see things your way ~
I'll open to all you wish to share,
graciously, willing holding that
we are not all the same.

Try to see things my way ~
This willingness to see so many sides,
to balance through a world in flux.
You didn't realize I've trained in dancing

We can work it out.
My attention is balm on your bruises,
 your softening gaze a  precursor to our,
ultimately, feather-light hearts.

Behind my smiling dimples,
I demand we unite,
we rise above.
We're strong together

On a number of occasions over the last 4 weeks, this newsletter has been begun. At the airport, in hotel rooms, on an aeroplane, in my own bed, in a friend's bed, lying in a sleeping bag in a tent in the woods...begun but not finished. There is no single complete reason for this but these 3 words below have a lot to do with it...as do various matters relating to visas, mortgages, computer failure and the general strains of the world of commerce.

It’s sort of a Catch 22 situation… anyway, they say a picture tells a thousand words… so I'll have to leave all of that to your imagination as I've got to get onto the November newsletter pronto…

for your pleasure…
