I was thinking how Crones, older women, are not as influenced by the cycles of the Moon! I look back over my feminine life Seeing how unconsciously I was driven. Influenced by the phases of the Moon, my powerfully changing hormones! Best described as chemical slavery. A female body a lunar ebb and flow alignment with the continuity of our Moon! I now see it also as a partial cultural brainwashing where; sex, power, and self-worth, is somehow all tied together! Yes, Crones have desires needs of love and intimacy I have come to experience Crones are no longer ruled by the cycles of the Moon or our hormones! There is the higher octave of the Moon, known as planet Neptune dancing with the astrological sign of Cancer I join in this brightly aware dance! The flutter of hormones emotional ways become silent to the constant moving river of insight! For Crones our external beauty wanes our internal beauty waxes as a luminous pearl I embrace my pearl. Consciously I slough off many burdensome illusions This is the correct time An ongoing relationship Between psyche and the cosmos.
