Dear Friend and Reader:
I saw Amy Elliott’s headline about Nessus, below, and thought: well, that about sums it up. The buck stops now. We do have that opportunity now. You might say that Nessus includes all that stuff about misogyny and boundary issues and sexual transgression. Nessus is on the South Node, the release point of the zodiac.
And this weekend, women of the world spoke up. There was both an embrace and a vast letting go. This was not an angry protest. This was a loving protest, a statement of presence, an experiment in raising our collective voices.
Tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM [play episode here] begins with a crowd sculpture, recorded by Amy Jacobs and edited together by me, and I get chills every time I play it. The very sound of women’s voices in unison, expressing what has long, long, long needed to be said out loud, to our world today, sends me spinning with joy.
In the first segment I offer a summary of what happened and what I think it means. In the second segment, Amy Jacobs and I speak for about half an hour about what we learned this weekend, and in the last segment I offer my views on why the supposed issue of “woman” is very much about sex and sexuality: about biology, and humanity, and consent, and claiming who one inherently is.
