The Flame Haired Solstice Dreamer

Cold winter brings the Everfrost and jewels every tree
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
A flame~haired dreamer wanders there and shelters from the wind
And spins her dreams around the trees to break the ties that bind
She takes her thread and spins anew and how the Greenwood smiles
As she spins a spell for freedom and for her spirit Wylde

The dreamer finds an ancient oak and shelters in his lee
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
Tis summer now and birdsong weaves its magick through her spells
And humming bees drum drowsily in the foxglove's bells
The dreamer sits beneath the oak with yarn upon her knee
And spins and knits and weaves her dreams and sets her spirit free

"When birds fall from the sky and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people...shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds, who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. they will be known as the warriors of the Rainbow"

~is this me?~sun signs & elements~

i have been thinking these thoughts for some days now and decided it was time to write it down.

i am a water bearing, fixed (fixed signs can be found at the zenith of each season), original eleventh house, Aquarian, embracing the element of air.

i have always 'felt' an Aquarian, everything~well about 99%~ i have read about the sign i can say for sure 'thats me'.

... original, unruly and wild sign; restless and socially active; original with a strong independent streak; critical towards society, even secretly enamored with anarchy; tendencies toward humanism; privacy is important to them and dislike unapproved encroachment on personal space; dislikes control, ego plays, pointless meetings, narrow-mindedness,routine, fighting/violence, inequality...
Air is the manifestation of movement, communication, intelligence and can be felt in the air that we breathe every day.
In magical terms Air is the force of intellect, inspiration, imagination, the power of the mind...it is ideas, knowledge, dreams and wishes.
the element of new life and new possibilities.
It is the vital spirit passing through all things, giving life to all things, moving and filling all things.
Air, celtic name airt, is a light, active element and is contrary to Earth. It is associated with the qualities of darkness, thinness and motion.
yellow, sunrise and sunset, mountaintops, gwydion
druid of the mainland gods, visualization, wind swept leaves, birds, lugh, spring, incense smoke, divination, merlin, the east, copper, arianrhod
goddess of reincarnation, taliesen...

i can see plenty of myself in these words and will come back to this...

I found this description of the Aquarian characteristics really interesting to read - where did you get it from? I'd love to read what it says about Virgo which is my sign, pretty much the opposite to you:)

All things share the same breath~the beast, the tree, the man, the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.
