Tane’ – God of Forests (Old sign=Cancer)Toothwort and ferns cast off a musk around your feet. Crashing through a rotten log you crumple like a ninja and roll down the embankment to a small creek. You are surprised, by your agility and that you are unhurt. You plop down on river rock and muddy sand beach and you think about last Mother’s Day.
Marutuk – God of Judgment, Magic, Vegetation and Waters (Old sign=Leo)Agenda Item 1: Horse thieves and snake oil vendors need your prayers more than their victims. Esoteric, etceteras… Agenda Item 4: From now on, in various designated areas, we will have nooks and crannies and niches and wine caves in lieu of restaurants. Esoteric, etceteras… Agenda item 7: An individual life cannot be counted with usual maths. Prove me wrong. Esoteric, etcetera, etceteras… Note to self: Goedel’s Theorem. What’s my act of service today? I shall decide on that before rolling out my own agenda.
Khnum – God of Creations and Waters (Old sign=Virgo)Choose your own adventure Khnum, but, get creative. Vacations of self-indulgence and thrill seeking are a waste of time and money: you know that deep down. Yet your options are restricted, aren’t they? Your joint is cramped… pillow-fortresses and lava floors are boring sans the fungus… all the pens were emptied days ago… paper’s all been plane-ed… even the dog could use a break (they’ve no idea why you have no better friend). Shit hits taste like hair, you’re scraping nonetheless. If you catch a head you might be able to self-pleasure, pass out, but its getting tender, olive oil doesn’t cut it. Guess it’s healing waters bathed in bubbles. You’ll pretend to be a writer and a lover. For a moment you’ll forget the streets is burning. Now the big decision… Are you a Fighter or a thief?
Hephaestus God of Labor and Industry (Old sign=Libra)How did this logjam ever get here in this quiet patch of empty scrub valley? Arroyos tell of floods. But how long ago? Not in years. The dead trees were 400 to 500 years old when they were felled and are not from here. Or am I dreaming now through their arrival? Or perhaps the Beaver God resides below in refuge, hiding from the paparazzi. Feeding off the fat amassed from the labor of colonies across space and time. Moon-beavers, Mars-beavers, even out on Pluto when it was more substantial – Pluto-beavers… All dead now. All zealots in life. The shrines paying homage – inescapable. You can even see them from the Earth. Behemoth works, left to evidence an interplanetary-dynasty, each sculpted in the likeness of a hollow crater – paying homage to the fruits of our labor.
Tyr God of Law and Heroic Glory (Old sign=Scorpio)Friendship is your ethos cornerstone, but deposits have turned it lime green. Meaning, your trust will be tested this month. Seek out those born under the mark of Anat and Tane’, those most suited to meet your joys. Who’ll keep your jealousy at bay this month? And who’ll lull your tendencies, those sleeping beneath the surface? Your lucky numbers are: 11 & 22 . I’d advise you bet the house on that secret ambition. Don’t waste a second sweating them. Just showing you what bridges you should burn on your way home.
Shang-Ti – God of Sovereignty (Old sign=Sagittarius)You couldn’t give a fuck what people think about your language. You rather have someone tell you what they really think then worry about offending you. So I will be immediately forthcoming: New opportunities are on the way this month, just in time, too – many will be hurting going forward. And everyone’s heard of your generosity. Are you disappointed prophecy does not allow the pay-off stay yours? Don’t worry, the freedom that comes in exchange will be worth it. Consider this – the largest “thing” in our galaxy is Jupiter’s electromagnetic field. Stretching, subjected to the force of gravities rotation, trailing-off behind the beast, entropic tailspin. You couldn’t even see a bug that small if you were this large, that is how little we are, little we matter. Insignificant. Still, a bug can go against the grain. Stand in defiance of forces manifest on a magnitude we cannot honestly comprehend – which have governed creation all the time it has ever been – while you will be forgotten infinitely longer than you will ever be. The only way we truly bring meaning to this meaningless life – defy the fog and seek to feed those things that speak to the beauty of Life.
Hapi – God of Floods & Fertility (Old sign=Aquarius)Brick by brick the clay bakes. Some scribblers inscribe and then bake. Sun-baked, us all. Ammi and Abu Under eight feet of water not a month before, Then solid flats again. Sun-baked, us all. The aged carry long staves for the sinkholes. The ages carry long debts to the new fold. Sun-baked, us all.
Heqet – Goddess of Fertility and Rebirth (Old sign=Pisces)“Everything is free now. Everything I’ve ever done I gotta give away now. “Someone hit the big score. Figured out: we’re gonna book it anyway, even if it doesn’t pay – Algorithm Art.” Just don’t take your light home, no, hide it under a shell, then it’s truly turtle-time all the way down, now.
Kali – Goddess of Time, Change, and Destruction (Old sign=Aries)We used to carry copious amounts a’ antidiarrheal meds in the gig bag. Even back in the redheaded cavemen frozen, high, up in the Eastern Asian range days. Exorcise and die it. Diet and exercise. Mostly diet. Stop the elephant your poor brain’s riding for one second! Are you well fed? Is there food here for tomorrow? If the answer is “yes,” either question, drink the water and imagine all the feasts the Ram could might well manage give to others!
Anat – Goddess of Fertility, Sexual Love, Hunting and War (Old sign=Taurus)Don’t be deceived… there’s more to this than there seems.
Eshu – God of Chaos, Death, Travel and Trickery (Old sign=Gemini)Horrors thought and lies forgotten, everywhere and now. Pull you from forever, remind you timeless terrors, gut your trust, leaving you – empty and without. Best this demon driven lest you lose all course and hope of rest. Coils thinned and soon abandoned twist at every turn, sour wine with sorrow, lay sweet the lonesome hollow, gut your trust, leaving you – empty and without. Best this demon driven save you’ll never be a god again, For the more you are consumed – the hungrier you get.
