Poetry Friday: Astrologically Speaking

Astrologically Speaking
By Anna E. Jordan

He charts lives.
Interprets transits.
Clarifies uncertainties.

She is astrologically
dumb.

He—
Leo,
Scorpio rising,
Aries moon.

She—
Aquarius,
Virgo rising,
Sun in 5th house.

He sees a future
in opposition.
Nodes out of place
He needs space.

She struggles to understand.
Searches for translation.
Grasps at what is already
gone.

He finds truth
in
the language of
Stars.

She in her own
starstuff.

  1. Wonderful poem, Anna! Made me smile and nod knowingly, as I think about how differently my husband and I sometimes view things. (You wrote this poem on my husband’s birthday.) 🙂 We’re both Scorpios!

    1. Thanks so much for reading, Jama. I’ve been told that even the time of your birth makes a big difference in how you see your path so it doesn’t surprise me that there are times that two Scorpios don’t see eye to eye. Happy Belated Birthday to your husband!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
