Я выбросила все кольца, все серьги. Душно в привычном парфюме. Еле сдерживаю себя, чтобы не выкинуть весь гардероб. Но здравый смысл пока со мной 😅 ⠀ Избегаю толп, но много говорю – поэтому пока ничего не пишу про Малайзию. ⠀ Жажда свободы и воздуха. Вот что такое Сатурн со властвующей Луной. ⠀ Это когда привычки и былая вера вдруг стали скучны. Как если бы озарения приходили каждое мгновение. Как если бы Шакти подошла к бурной реке и увидела Кали на той стороне. Если бы Ева узнала о Лилит и простила. ⠀ Пусть маленький воин внутри отдохнёт и выспится. А я найду синий сапфир. Больше ничто не нужно ☮️ ⠀ ______ ⠀ I threw out all the rings, all the earrings. Can’t stand any perfume. I barely restrain myself not to throw out what left in my wardrobe too.🤦🏼‍♀️ ⠀ …I avoid crowds, but talk a lot -this is why I’m still not writing anything about Malaysia. ⠀ *** Thirst for freedom and air. That's what #Saturn in the tandem with #Moon mean. ⠀ It is when habits and past beliefs suddenly become boring. When insights come every moment. It is when Shakti walks to a turbulent river and sees Kali on the other bank. It's when Eve finds out about Lilith and forgives her. ⠀ Let the little warrior inside rest and sleep for a while. find a blue sapphire. Nothing more is needed now☮️
