Today’s post practically wrote itself. Today the sun made its ingress into Aries, signaling the vernal equinox and Spring in the Northern Hemisphere ( Happy Autumn to all my readers in the Southern Hemisphere.) A mere few hours later Venus joined Neptune at 10 degrees Pisces. A sublime combination of energies, if I say so myself.  This combination sparked the beginning of the title, Pure Love ( Neptune Venus) Renaissance ( Vernal Equinox, aka Spring). Confirmation of random love is evident via the whimsical heart adorning my yummy soy latte.

But what about the magic carpet? Glad you asked!


While conversing with Mike about his latest blog ( which I highly recommend) , I mentioned that the singer he featured reminded me of Annie Haslam from the band Renaissance. I quickly became reacquainted with my favorite Renaissance classic, Carpet of the Sun.

Here are some of the lyrics that stood out today:

Come into the day
Feel the sunshine warmth around you
Sounds from far away
Music of the love that found you

The seed that you plant today
Tomorrow will be a tree
And living goes on this way
It’s all part of you and me

See the carpet of the sun
The green grass, soft and sweet
Sands upon the shores of time
Of oceans, mountains deep
Part of the world that you live in
You are the part that you’re giving

I really believe I was tuned into this material intuitively. The lyrics and band name really reflect today’s themes of new life and universal connection. The carpet reference conjured up visions of mystical magic carpet rides. The current mars in Sagittarius energy loves big adventures.  So here we go…….


I have been imagining magic carpets for a few months actually; perhaps yearning for more freedom, intrigue, and autonomy. Could this demonstrate one route that manifestation can take? I certainly hope so.

I am definitely smitten with the union of Venus with Neptune, although it is not an aspect found in my natal chart. I do think that this transit summons the better part of human nature, where we soar to Divine heights of unconditional universal love. Gaia certainly could use more love and less discord at this time.

New gig : As this season symbolizes new beginnings, I recently entered into a new affiliation. Spirit Post magazine has made me one of their contributors.

Let me know how you ushered in the equinox.

I have had a busy weekend catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. Last night I celebrated International Astrology Day at a NCGR fundraiser held at the lovely October gallery. While I definitely can feel the rush of the impending Lunar Eclipse, there is also a whisper of hope in the air. The magic carpet is heading our way…

  2. Dear Linda Litebeing,
    Astrology, enchantment, music, and possibilities…. 🙂 Oh my! 🙂 In the best way….
    I’ll be back again, soon. I’m intrigued by the magic carpet and look forward to hearing more. Thank you for introducing me to the Renaissance song, I had not heard it before. This has been a lovely vernal equinox, not without its basic WOWs ::giggle:: and some tears. I am appreciating the overlay of this Lunar eclipse, and the tender releases that allow, allow, and welcome. ❤
    Much Love,

      There is definitely an overlay and I am not sure what to make of it. So thrilled today is sunny and warm and full of flowering plants and critters. This magic carpet had sparked a few folks and that makes me smile. 🙂

      Renaissance is one of those oldies but goodies of the Uranus Pluto conjunction era. The chorus has stuck in my head and I am enjoying the buzz.

      xx sweetie,

    Hey Linda,

    How’s you? 🙂 Just stopping by to say ‘hello’, see how you are, and quickly ask… when you wrote, ‘I have been imagining magic carpets for a few months actually; perhaps yearning for more freedom, intrigue, and autonomy.’ I kind of wondered what each of these aspects means to you – freedom, autonomy, and intrigue – and where you would take your thoughts and definitions if/when flying your magic carpet? 🙂

    Hoping all’s well always. Take care.

      Hi Dewin.
      How are you? I am okay, could be better, but certainly okay. Happy you stopped by with an “assignment” for me. I will consider your questions and get back to you. The short answer though, is this: freedom is relief from restrictions, autonomy is room to maneuver and exert your free will, and intrigue is those mysterious, unusual elements that arouse curiosity and engagement. Are you asking where would I travel or what I would do with these 3 ideals?

      take care and Namaste,

        Hey Linda,

        😀 An assignment lol You do make me laugh 🙂 There’s no rush to come up with an answer.

        Good to hear you’re okay and determined to be better…I like the sound of your commitment. I’m okay as well, thanks for asking; although I still wish it were the weekend! 🙂

        Words like ‘freedom’, ‘autonomy’ and ‘intrigue’ are far-reaching in their meaning and interpretation, and I was curious to understand your definitions in the context of your post. I like the short answer you’ve given, but even that can be unpacked further. So yes, how will these ideals manifest in your life? And if travel is an option or opportunity for you, where would you travel to, and why?

        I had always thought of magic carpets as being similar to ‘wind horses’…magical ‘vehicles’ or ‘devices’ of the Psyche, able to transport thoughts to and fro between reality and the kingdoms of our heart and imagination. I had never envisaged them as physical objects before, but I guess they are, for it is our thoughts that take us where we wish to go in reality. You’ve got me thinking now of where I’d go on my magic carpet! I’ll have to consider this further, and get back to you 🙂

        Until next time…

        Take care.

    Love the pictures, especially the painting in the middle. Miracles and magic carpets are always an option for long-distance traveling:-)
    I see that you really long to travel and feel the freedom and adventure.
    Interestingly, the subject of traveling comes up a lot for me these days via conversations at lunch or post in the WP reader and also in dreams. I wonder what that means. Unlike you, I do not long for traveling at the moment. I feel that it would cause stress for me. But the universe bombards me with messages about travel. A recent dream told me very specifically that an exotic surprise journey was planned for me starting at March 23rd, and I was supposed to take some sort of vitamin pills before in order not to get sick on that journey. Hmm, I wonder why that is. I have interpreted it as metaphorical message.
    Order your magic carpet, unfold your butterfly wings, and then let’s meet halfway beetwen Germany and the US somewhere;-)

      Maybe you do not have the travel bug because you have done some travel recently and/or it is not your thing. and yet the topic is active for you now. Keep me posted about tomorrow’s 3/23 journey! I long to travel and have much motivation. It is about making it happen regarding resources. It we met halfway it would be in the Atlantic Ocean, lol!

      Hugs, Linda

        On the 3/23, I had a dream about traveling to Iran. I don’t know why that is. Maybe because I have a friend here who is from Iran?
        I think the travel prognosis for me is metaphorical. Journey often means the spiritual journey in my dreams.
        All I know is that I feel very exhausted right now, and maybe that was the whole point. To let me know in a dream that I would need to take a vacation in order to rest and integrate.
        I don’t think that I am usually sensitive to the energies about which the esoteric wheather forecasts are speaking. But since early March, I am just feeling very exhausted. Tired, brainfog, flu-ish, sluggish. Maybe I do feel these energies after all.
        I read a channeling which describes that the tiredness is number one of the symtpoms right now. That is comforting to know that this is normal and will hopefully pass.
        Hope you get to travel as much as you wish.

        There could be astrological reasons pertaining to your chart causing your fatigue. We can discuss this offline. It will pass as long as you take good care of you. Thanks for the link, as always. My feet have been a problem lately and I hear that is an issue this month. I usually am immune to these galactic type forecasts, but not those emanating from the planets in our solar system. I hope you feel better soon . hugs, Linda

    The union of Venus and Neptune sounds nice especially if it “summons the better part of human nature, where we soar to Divine heights of unconditional universal love. The planet certainly could use more love and less chaos at this time.” Thanks for the song. Takes me back. I love Renaissance. Beautiful video.
    Happy Spring, Linda.
