The Cosmic Self – Astro Poetry by Tanja Flanjak – Guest Post

The Cosmic Self

Your eyes are nebulas

Your lips are stars

Your mind is Mercury

Your action is Mars

Neptune are your dreams imagined during sleep

Pluto is the darkness that inhabits the deep

Venus is creativity, love is there too

Uranus brings change, you’ll have to make do

The Sun is the Self

The Moon is the Heart

The Cosmos are within you, they’re really the start

The start you may ask? The start of what?

The start of your journey, let’s leave it at that

When you look in the mirror, you don’t see your reflection

You see yourself as the universe, it’s truest expression

What seems light years away are in fact herein

As above so below, as without, so within

Astro poetry limerick – Kepler

Kepler’s second law of planetary motion states: A planet sweeps out an equal area in equal time.

Simply put the further a planet is from the Sun in it’s orbit the slower it moves through the zodiac. Most orbits are elliptical (have two foci where one is the Sun) and some distances are more extreme than others.

For example: Pluto was nearer the Sun during it’s swift transit through it’s own sign of Scorpio from 1984-1995 (on and off) for only eleven years. Pluto was in Taurus (on and off) during the period 1854-1883 for almost twenty-nine years. Remember during Pluto’s transit of Scorpio it was at times nearer to the Sun than Neptune!

We also note this phenomena when the Moon is fast or slow for a while each month.

I think occasional astrology poetry is an escape, perhaps I shall post on Fridays, if it is an even date, and the Moon is fast…

Now Kepler he had a good thought

as planetary motion was fraught.

Each orbit he found

had swept out equal ground

and now his second law is taught.
