I Am Gemini


 "Astrology is a language. 
 If you understand this language,
the sky speaks to you." 
 ~Dane Rudhyar
 I am Gemini third sign of the zodiac.  I am ruled by Mercury and my element is air.  My mind is open and there is a smile upon my face.  I am versatile and expressive as I have a brilliant listening ear.  The gemstone I wear is emerald and my feet long to take me to the east.  My polarity is positive and my season is always spring.  I am a social creature and a wordsmith as I communicate with the world.  Wednesday is my day of refuge, and 3 and 7 are the numbers that hold my luck.  I am loose with a pocket book, but I grip tight the hand that I hold dear.  I see both sides of the coin with a certain ease, and I shall mediate two views and make the fighting cease. 
Yes, I am Gemini two people rolled into one lump sum. .

 This week I turned 51.  I don't feel that old.  In my heart and mind I feel 25, but time keeps marching on whether I need a break or not.  Life is a journey that provides no directions nor map for your destination.   I have come to realize that no matter how old I get, I always have so much to learn in the process.  Life is a constant pop quiz and my lesson is to remember what happened on the prior questions and do better on the multiple choice that lies ahead.  When I think back on my father's life, his happiest years were after 50.   So I know the best is yet to come.  The 20's held too many errors.  The 30's were full of red marks on the test.  Then 40's were a complete revision of the whole exam.  So the 50's hopefully will be a passing grade.  Whatever happens on my future tests, I know it will be full of fascinating questions to discover, ponder, and eventually answer.


  1. wow really? i have never thought of you as that age carrie...perhaps it is that heart that shines through in your writing....ha...i agree on the pop quiz and remembering how we answered the last....good is yet to come for sure....happy birthday carrie and i wish you all the best in the coming year....

  2. You are right on time, Carrie! You are right on target with the progression through the decades. It was the same for me, too, and likely for all of us, as I see the patterns being repeated in my adult kids.........the 50's are THE BEST!!!!!! And you are still young - I only am beginning to feel my age towards the end of my sixties. You can rock it for a whole nuther decade at least! hee hee. Happy Birthday and welcome to Wild Woman Territory!

    1. Thank you Sherry....I certainly will try to rock it for as long as I can. :-))

  3. Happy Birthday, you look great, young lady.

  4. "Hope Whispers" has been included in the A Sunday Drive for this week. Be assured that I hope this helps to point even more new visitors in your direction.

  5. I love how you've depicted the decades - pretty accurate for not only you... enjoy the 50's!!!
