The 7 Days of CryAction 2: 697-746

An angel-baby is born
very calm and curly:
an avatar of Aries!
[700] At the same time
he’s lion-hearted like
the leader of the flock,
a little but big horn,
though meek when man
shears his white wool
that physis will easily
regrow. One being born
with Sun in Taurus
is labor-resistant
[710] and self-subduing
like a plowing ox.
With Scorpio rising,
one will hit hard as
with a poisonous point.
Meanwhile Libra makes
friends with Dikaiosyne.
Funny eh? The figure
supposedly life-leading—
Ram who balances nights
[720] and days; Libra of light—
is a spot in the sky.
Should beasts bestow
temperament on Tom?
Is human nature
feral? And feral as well
the sky, subjugated
to stinky species?
Are the sky’s spheres
below the beasts?
[730] Ha! vain wisdom
puffed up with pride
like unhappy Arachne
who hardly entangles
an insect in her net
but a bigger weight
will blur and break it.
He who both binds
and unbinds us
sometimes from sins,
[740] the frame of Fate—
may He who takes heed
of free will (a gift from
on higher than sky)
break the weak web
of old illusions
by launching liberation.
