I’d never looked out the window while flying into the sunset and evening time until last night while we flew into Minneapolis from California. I watched as the city of Minneapolis first appeared like gold glitter scattered across a sea of black in a man-made constellation of beauty. As the plane descended colors became clearer, the city lamps and the stoplights and the flashing red and blue of police cruisers distinguishing and declaring themselves. Magical met mundane in a seamless change of altitude. 

That moment was a Moon moment. Realities merged, perceptions changed and shifted and truth made itself evident under a patient and consistent eye. I love The Moon for its romance. My head was saturated with romance the entire flight home, the events of the day rolling into the melody of the music in my ears and unearthing fragments of soul I’d long forgotten. There were karmic moments of fire and light and blatant symbolism and some kind of awakening that kindled San Diego in my bones. 

That is The Moon. 

For this card I chose “These Dreams” by Heart. 

Spare a little candle

Save some light for me

figures up ahead

Moving in the trees

White skin in linen

Perfume on my wrist

And the full moon that hangs over

these dreams in the mist

Darkness on the edge

Shadows where I stand

I search for the time

On a watch with no hands

I want to see you clearly

Come closer than this

But all I remember

Are the dreams in the mist

These dreams go on when I close my eyes

Every second of the night I live another life

These dreams that sleep when it’s cold outside

Every moment I’m awake the further I’m away


Is it cloak ‘n dagger

Could it be spring or fall

I walk without a cut

Through a stained glass wall

Weaker in my eyesight

The candle in my grip

And words that have no form

Are falling from my lips


These dreams go on when I close my eyes

Every second of the night I live another life

These dreams that sleep when it’s cold outside

Every moment I’m awake the further I’m away


There’s something out there

I can’t resist

I need to hide away from the pain

There’s something out there

I can’t resist

The sweetest song is silence

That I’ve ever heard

Funny how your feet

In dreams never touch the earth

In a wood full of princes

Freedom is a kiss

But the prince hides his face

From dreams in the mist


These dreams go on when I close my eyes

Every second of the night I live another life

These dreams that sleep when it’s cold outside

Every moment I’m awake the further I’m away


These dreams go on when I close my eyes

Every second of the night I live another life

These dreams that sleep when it’s cold outside

Every moment I’m awake the further I’m away
