SCORPIO AND SCORPIO RISING
If you have been on lockdown, shutdown and generally collapsed,
you’ve still miraculously been able to show
some swagger and pull off some semblance of being present.
Now is the moment to begin coming out of that
cocoon you have been in. Nobody with half a brain
would ever minimize the traumas you have been enduring.
Then, too, because you are always so successful
at making such a giant effort to conceal your fragility,
they all think you are breezing through it.
It’s got to be exhausting
to be constantly on stage,
tap dancing in a ceaseless effort
to prove that you are fine,
great, on top of the situation.
When you are alone in your room, however,
only then can you admit
that you actually feel absolutely totally shitty.
Especially when the pressure is on
from relatives and neighbors,
you are pushed to keep moving
when you so dearly need rest.
Once again here you are
facing another test of endurance,
where you are asked to continue
to cope with the problems and issues
of neighbors and relatives
from near and far,
while trying to heal yourself
from the inside out
without anybody guessing.
