What if Ceres Conjuc

What if Ceres Conjucts my North Node? I have my north node at 22 degrees
Taurus and I have Ceres is at 17 Degrees Taurus. My moethr passed a way two
years ago and I have always felt very connected to her. She was an
alcoholic for most of my life but a very talented woman. I am 27 years old
now, and I have been in and out of short term relationships for the past
few years. I know I have a hard time letting go (I have Saturn and Pluto in
Scorpio), and I know it affects the relationships both platonically and
romantically. What is my soul saying or the universe saying when it is
Conjuct my North Node (well, loosely conjuct)?

In lines 81-86 of “G

In lines 81-86 of “Goblin Market” Christina Rossetti utilizes silmies
to draw out what she expects from the reader. In describing the character
Laura, Rossetti uses descriptive language just to say Laura stretched her
neck. To understand this passage I use the trouble reading because it
really seems like these silmies signal trouble. These sorts of redundant
images of how a person stretches their neck screams obsession. The question
is why is Rossetti stuck with the description of something? Rossetti may
have an issue of language, she may not know how to say what she wants, and
so she dances around it. Though the images are very beautiful Rossetti is
lingering on a single moment. Throughout the poem Rossetti uses silmies; at
times she becomes obsessed and gets stuck. I don’t get the possibility
reading from any of the passages that have silmies. The silmies in this
poem were a huge problem because It slows the poem down to the point that I
don’t understand what she wants us to take from it. If making her readers
confused were her intentions than that’s fine, but I don’t like the
repetitive images. What I do take from this poem as a whole is the
confusion that woman face and what their role is. The poem reflects
women’s identity, misguided and unsure. The poem offers ways to think
about choice and women’s identity.
