♍ VIRGO “STAR HOP”
The border of this scarf “Breeze” imagines the quality of the element earth. The planet Mercury ( ☿ ) is shown as 2 half circles united when Breeze is worn. This Star Hop is wonderful!
Start at the Big Dipper. See how the dipper points to Polaris, the North star,(5 “dipper” widths of distance away) located in the Little Dipper. Now head the other direction and follow the handle of the Big Dipper to it's end and keep heading in that same “arc” to the red giant star Arcturus, in the Constellation of Bootes (looks sort of like a kite with Arcturus at the bottom).
Now continue your “arc” journey to the Bright Star Spica, in the constellation of Virgo. Step back and allow yourself to see Lady Virgo lying down with Spica in her, outstretched left hand. She is huge and amazingly beautiful.
With practice this will take only a few thrilling moments of “Looking Up” To discover these astronomical friends..There is something real that happens when we stop for just a while or so....…
