Flow Radio: The Empress & Black Sugar (mix by maple)

Mourning.
Mornings
when the Sun disguises itself as a blood moon.

No longer playing coy, allowing us to stare straight at her unbridled wrath.
The ash has yet to settle.
Carried by wind like what remains of my loved ones.

This dark night that never seems ends.

We have reached a save point. Patch up and cobble together what strength you can.
Look back and try and remember what hope means. 
Savor the memory and rest for tomorrow brings battle.

Our mix this week is crafted by a dear friend: maple

The first half is named the Empress. The second is named Black Sugar.

Pick a Card:
You now hold the Empress in Reverse.
"Reversed, the Empress encourages you to make self-love and self-care a priority. Now is the time to bring your loving energy and focus to yourself, especially if you have been giving away your personal power by placing too much emphasis on another person’s emotional or material needs, thus neglecting your own."
- Some Google'd Horoscope Site

Take this time to heal.

A spoonful of Black Sugar sits like bad medicine. Sliding into your soul like the slow drip of molasses (or maybe maple syrup). Though sweet to the taste, it has a way of swallowing you whole. It doesn't taste so bitter when your body remembers the highs and lows. But deep down, you know that something is wrong. Something is still off. The ghost itch that yearns to be scratched. Fight it off, patch the glitch, and help create a world that is for everyone.
