Karlstejn Castle, Czech Republic Photo and poem © Lark Bowerman
This photo was taken the year that we lived in the Czech Republic for five months, just downhill from the Karlstejn Castle—and nearly froze to death—no kidding! The meaning of the return of the Sun King to Light the World, was vividly clear to us that year!
I dreamed my Mother visited me. You know how dreams are. They’re…well…different. She came as a Robin and sat next to me on the branch, as I was a Robin too. I knew why she came.
I completely agree with Dream Teacher, Robert Moss, when he says that each of us is the final authority on the interpretation of our dreams. He admonishes us when giving feedback to anyone else about their dream to first say, “If it were my dream…”
My destiny is entangled with my Mother’s in a way I have yet to completely understand. I’ve heard statistics that say many people die within a day or so of their Birthday, men, often a little before and women, more often, a little after. And that the highest number of people die during the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Perhaps it’s the easiest time to slip away into the (by us) Unseen Realm, as the light is waning…
My Mother died the day after my Birthday. I knew why she came last night. Robin — what better symbol of hope, than the first bird to arrive in the spring!
I went out to watch the sunrise this morning. I was expecting actually, not to see it come up as it looked very cloudy toward Mt. Baker. But suddenly there it was crowning on the horizon and easy to gaze at with the slight veil of mist. It reminded me of photos I once saw taken of the moment a human egg released from a woman’s follicle. It made me think, “Here’s Mother Earth, once again giving birth to the Sun King. And He begins the return journey to light the World for us once again this year.”
WHETHER WE THINK OF IT OR NOT…
in a way, we’re all dreamers and astrologers. We all dream each night (though we might not remember) and we all feel and see the light of the Sun and Moon and Stars. We’re all affected by sunrise and sunset, we’re all touched by the beauty of the Moon and Stars in the heavens at night. We notice them especially when they rise or set, or at the zenith or the nadir, points of note for astrologers, with any heavenly body.
And without dreams and synchronicity, astrology would be nothing but a very complicated and boring exercise in math. Our lives are woven together with the meaning that dreams, omens, and synchronicity bring to us. We each have a secret and very, very precious relationship to the Source. It speaks to us through the circumstances of our lives. We’re never alone. There’s always a Robin Redbreast of Hope waiting somewhere for us when we least expect it.
So as you go into the New Year, we want to wish you to dream your best dreams, whatever that means—exactly—for you.
All the very best to you in the coming year as the light once again grows in power.
