full moon in aquarius

fall in love with the face in the mirror / watch it do new things, lose the mirror / fall in love with the feeling of a new feeling on your face, call it a small freedom / claim a moment unperformed / meet your own eyes in another’s face grasp control and relinquish it / a new story is taking over you and all of us at the same moment / maybe you are the letter r in a sentence that wants to incite a revolution but desperately needs respite and you can do both / everything in between is a different letter to conjure the breath through mouthflesh / a different way of being in the world, a different miracle / now catch your eye again and relinquish solitude / feel how many bacteria and cells and memories and ideas are collaborating for this exhale, this (insert your name) / write a story of satisfaction and swoon and delight and abundance / and when you grieve let it only be for the hours spent lost from yourself / but don’t give up the lessons you could have only learned in that wilderness / like when you see the moon this full, howl.

  1. Thank you. The full moon in aquarius called my heart, called me back to my foresight. Prometheus and Epimetheus both. I felt my hindsight in returning to my own aquarian moon, like I was finally learning how to be distant while being close up.

  2. I am inspired by you to express self-love and self-confidence in my sexual desires. I am inspired by your ability to tell stories that connect people with nature and themselves. I am in awe of your unafraid approach to relationship building. I seek to empower women, as you have, to find pleasure in their life, in their relationships, and to do so confidently. I live a full confident life and with your help, inspire others to do the same. Thank you for helping me start conversations about freedom, power, and satisfied expression of emotions in our society.

  3. This is a revolutionary gift. This tells my Aquarius moon heart how to be in the wildness of the the universe, the ungraspable nature of space where nowhere is down, nowhere ground for my Taurus soul and yet…. Still be, be in it in my body and in my heart. To not just distance with mind. I have just found Octavias Parables and I already knew before that, you were are wildly brilliant humble and generous. But now your voice holds me, reminds me to only stay with those who I know are my people. Blessings love magic.

  4. love everything about this little poem. putting it in a place close to my bed for safekeeping.

  5. Beautiful words… I made a vow to begin reflecting on the full moon each month as part of a self-care vision for myself. This poem touches the parts of me that wants to love myself via the definition that bell hooks offers, that love is when we invest in the spiritual growth of ourself and others. The exploration of myself and all the miraculous bits that comprise of it feels like the most important work these days as liberation is not probable without self-love. This poem is a meditation for me on that – thank you!
