July 3rd, the goddesses emerge out of a roiling orb in the sky for a descending day of reckoning down on earth. They hold up flags as orienting goalposts so that we might see how to create boundaries around ideals of justice, strategy and harmony. But we’re in a dizzy fog. Those same goddesses have given us a homeopathic dose of wrath so that we do not tread too hastily, but observe the things for which we are bearing burdens, what responsibilities we carry. Screaming, war-like, toward a swirling sky, they warn us that the movement through the fog is not for the faint-hearted, as all kinds of illusions of harmony, justice and reasoned methods forward may pop out. *The methodical alone is not the way*, they say. *Only cracking open the fringes of passion in which the entrails of your failed daily schedules hide out is sufficient*. Everyone’s a wearily heroic laborer today, essential, discerning and contributing through dirtying the hands and opening the heart.
