Dangers of Swimming at Night

I live by the ocean and the inspiration for this poem and painting was an article in the local paper about a tourist to the Gold Coast who went swimming late one night after a celebratory night-out in Surfers Paradise.

It is important to always respect the ocean both during the day and at night.

The Dangers of swimming at night

Dangers of swimming at night.

An ocean is a world of its own

A mystery, an unknown zone

Wonder at its undiscovered depths

Respect and love its strength.

The ocean gives , the ocean takes

Upon shores its endless waves break

We sail upon, we fish, we play

Sun shines on blue throughout  the day.

At night, we swim for fun

No fear,  let  inhibitions run

Who cares what lurks beneath,

Way down, down in the deep.

However danger goes before.

Check who’s watching the shore

Swim in close don’t go too far

It’s all in the Stars – Pisces

piscesPISCES  The Fish…February 19 to March 20

Pisces  the mystic of the Water signs, sometimes even a mystery to themselves – the frequently changing ‘mutable’ Water sign. The Water element means a feeling type, motivated by strong emotions, visionary impulses and feeling attachments.

As the ‘mutable’ Water sign, they flow from feeling to feeling, plan to plan, vision to vision. This makes them highly creative or gifted at working with other people and sometimes just predictably unpredictable.

The sign that is most likely to motivated to do something by saying you will never do it again; very skilled in a helping capacity, naturally comfortable with service. Yet will easily evoke the help of others by readily expressing vulnerability.  Most happy when they can follow their dreams, while intimately linking with other people’s dreams.

As the dreamer their key phrase is: “I imagine”.

AQUARIUS  The Water Bearer…January 21 to February 18.

Aquarius you are the fixed thinker of the Air signs, determined and clever. The Air element means you are a thinking type motivated by beliefs, strong opinions and interaction with other people.

As the ‘fixed’ Air sign you put a lot of energy into forming opinions and hold to them strongly. Driven by two planets, each representing opposite principles you frequently display a ‘wild’ side, linked to planet Uranus and prompting eccentric leanings, as well as a structured ambitious hard working Saturnian side. You are most happy when you are doing something different in a big ambitious way. You are the thinker of the zodiac, your key phrase: “I serve humanity”.

A strong desire to connect with groups of people, to express humanitarian principles and to explore social life, are what drive you forward. The ‘waters’ that the Water Bearer carries are the waters of humanity and Aquarius serves humanity.

Ancient Arabic Astrology says Aquarius is: “of hot and humid nature (aerial).
