Psyche Entering Cupid's Garden (1905, John William Waterhouse)
Psyche Entering Cupid’s Garden (1905, John William Waterhouse)

This lovely snippet arrived in my email box yesterday, thanks to J.R.R. Tolkien and Elaine at Blue Moon Astrology.

Tolkien’s musing is perfectly aligned with the watery essence of the Piscean-Neptunian new moon and other imaginative, dream-visiony, experimentation-friendly energies of now.

“Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate
And though I oft have passed them by
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.”

— J. R. R. Tolkien, a song snippet from Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, on the way to the Grey Havens)

What new roads, secret gates, hidden paths, or tucked-away (or inner) gardens are calling for exploration?

Now is a very fine time to experiment and evoke your Holy Muses — to let the imagination wander, and make attentive space for heartful, soulful visions and inspirations to arise and receive the ‘miracle-grow’ fertilizer of our attention and energy.
