A Year In The North

Poem

UCC Zodiac/Year

        

This poem has a verse for each 'Zodiac Sign' and associated Triad (month) of the year which contains its associated name, number, 'creature', element, quality, trait, ruling planet and part of the body in the Tropical Zodiac. There are also references here and there to their places in the seasonal cycle and, for the Mid Seasons, the names of their associated Fire Festivals.

  

   

At First I Rambled to Self Begin

The year, from Mars the Head of Spring

When day & night share equal parts

And with Fiery balance Aries starts

   

My eyes then Fixed a Bullish gaze

On a Second creature’s thick Necked graze

As in the Stuff of Beltane’s feast

The Venusian Earth fed Taurus’ beast

   

Then Mercurially the Air was changed

A Third Mutated Mind arranged

Joined Jack & Jill, the Twins on high

Armed for the summit - Gemini

   

    

Atop a Chest as we stayed a while

Sprang Fourth the tropics Homely smile

The Summer cracking Open Crabs

Neath the Watery Moon that Cancer grabs

    

Then as we fell through Lughnasadh’s Fix

A Fiery Lion played his tricks

The Fifth we’d seen, Pride of the Sun

In Leo’s Heart, Creating fun

   

Halfway, Changed a Maiden’s Womb

Love of Hermes harvest tome

The Sixth that Earthy Virgo spied

Practically, a Virgin bride

   

  

To Start again at equal night

A Seventh setting fell in sight

Helene’s Judgement, telling tales

Of Libra’s Airy Kidney Scales

  

But then the tale began to Sting

As Mars & Pluto mirrored Spring

The Eighth from Samhain’s Scorpion

Some Sexy Secret Waters sprung

  

To Change again and end the Fall

I Fired Nine arrows, at a Centaur’s call

Into its Thighs they Travelled thus

By Jove in Sagittarius

  

  

Controlling Ten since our quest was born

We stayed the turn of Capricorn

For Satan’s Earthly Goat to please

As the Father Sprang from Winter’s Knees

  

Then Satan, Free, Eleven times

Tried the Water bearer’s crimes

But Imbolc’s Air of Uranus

Pinned his Shins, Aquarius

  

Last Universal Winter’s Thor

So Neptune’s Waters, Fishes bore

Twelve Pisces Changed around my Feet

As the Ram again we rose to meet
