Anat – Goddess of Fertility, Sexual Love, Hunting and War (Old sign=Taurus)Cobblestone throat. Cobblestone throat. I’ll croon you a love song with my cobblestone throat.
Eshu – God of Chaos, Death, Travel and Trickery (Old sign=Gemini)If you insist on setting out I suggest you steer clear of alcoholics, and addicts, and gamblers with mustaches braided with mascots, and, of course, incubi. And not just this month. You’re bound to lose more than you’d like. Close your eyes til June. You’re more likely a hero when the skies are blue.
Tane’ – God of Forests (Old sign=Cancer)Anosognosia in the House of Adam, Blood money made the world go down. But the animals are happier, aren’t they?Peace and pacts. Quiet rest. The kind that comes with rising tides. Ferns uncoil sticky tendrils. Tender crops. Seedlings singing. Smile kindly when you see the moon. She’s blessed your clan progenitors.
Marutuk – God of Judgment, Magic, Vegetation and Waters (Old sign=Leo)You love the feel of authenticity. Knees needing patches. Distressing. You trying to tell us something? A physic communique – clockwork guts? I diggit. Integrity’s your thing. After all, rebels are revolutionaries without any history, shallow rooting. Seaming to reflect one thing you’ve been certain for some time now: a wyrm is turning deep within you.
Since then, painstaking, the undertakings you’ve taken to understand what’s trending. Years on Safari, or what have you, hunting seasons. Lost in the Amazon. Excavating. Trowels fashioned after best examples – countless samples, countless sites. But it’s hard to tell how good your handle when you’re always sifting in the murk. What you need is clear, my friend, just listen to the ‘rithm. Clocked, a starry-eyed companion, guide to bear your burden while you’re sewing up those sales. Just drop your gear and take a breath. You know you always hold the ship until the very last minute. I mean, a deal’s a deal and second best to breeding is your branding.
Khnum – God of Creations and Waters (Old sign=Virgo)There was a time when even the poor were mourned. Today, if you die before your spouse you’re the one who’s blessed. So the announcement came as no surprise, Mercury is in Anat and the sixth house says you’re lying. Go home. Confess before leaving.
Hephaestus God of Labor and Industry (Old sign=Libra)I know you aren’t worried. Always managed to find a way to work it… somehow. But that, if i may,
that’s typically what happens before the straw comes ‘round. A peril of Faith. See, Karma isn’t justice. Do you really believe we all get what we deserve and all deserve what we get? No. Karma is Rwanda – both the tragedy and the triumph. Justice is the legend on a map. Meritocracy, a myth we quest. Christ on a crutch. You deserve a better life, today, not after.
Tyr God of Law and Heroic Glory (Old sign=Scorpio)Social inertia swarms, you’re sure again. Though washed-up and mired in times that won’t live up to the high water mark, your name will ring. One way or another, today or some other, nothing will stop you from saving the day for them.
Shang-Ti – God of Sovereignty (Old sign=Sagittarius)Sling marks and arrowheads dot the topography, hidden in your hide. Your tongue is sharp, your house is ninth, workshop of the thinker. It isn’t Zeus you got that thunder from, and these Titans don’t impress you. What god was it made philosophers round the globe? What men was it shaped this world? Ask yourself, when worse have done their worst and are none the worse for wear, what would the Jesus do? Rollin’ Rollin’ Rollin’
Ganesha – God of Intellect and Wisdom (Old sign=Capricorn)If you had it to do over, you would not wish to be a god. Elephantine hindsight, amirite? The gods may never truly know what it is like to be mortal and also be aware of their mortality. A conscious mortal can do so much because they can imagine all states of being. They can imagine what it is to be another being, a snake, an elephant, a fish, a coat upon a stick, a warm gun, and a god; that lack of imagination can make a god vulnerable to entropy.
Hapi – God of Floods & Fertility (Old sign=Aquarius)Congratulations, grasshopper. It was difficult, registering with that class, but you did it. No surprise, really. You tend to shine in circumstances that challenge your innovation. No stream of consciousness crap here. Iconoclastic calculations cook this noodle, baby. Just know now, they will be hard on you. And speaking of hard ons, what’s with the vests? Why they dressed like Bane when he was Hardy? Why the hell they always talking like a soldier? The only war they ever fought was with cholesterol. The only thing they ever killed was ambition. They think they got your number. Just shows how much they don’t know ‘bout that ‘leventh house. Let them keep believing. Your birthright is your battlecry. “Saturn feeds on kings!”
Heqet – Goddess of Fertility and Rebirth (Old sign=Pisces)The muddy river bulges with the return of Springtime creeks. Whence come the creeks, daddy? Streams. Whence the streams? Rivulets. Whence the rivulets?! Drips, I don’t know! Whence all the drips? Rains. What of snow? Meltwater of snowpack. Whence the snow and rain drips? The clouds of the sky. Whence the clouds in the sky, papa? Condensation. What’s ‘condensation?’ Look at this glass. Think of it as a cloud. Okay. I’m going to fill it with cold water. That’s what the cloud is made of. The clouds are made of water? Simply, yes. And pollution. What’s pollution? Another time. We’re talking about condensation. Okay but, daddy? Yes? Can I have a hug?
Kali – Goddess of Time, Change, and Destruction (Old sign=Aries)Birthed in the core, those photons of the Sun striking your face—nameless boozehounds weaving from bar to bar—wandered from atom to atom for 40,000 years to stumble out of the saloon doors of the Sun and taxi the eight minutes to Earth. Thank the photons for their service!
