When leadership restored fortune,
we were like those who received our portion.
We felt like those who dream while still awake.
There was the distinct feeling that this fortune wasn't fake.
Our mouth was filled with laughter.
It was like starting again after a climatic chapter.
The rider and the fighter are twins in the sky.
They fought for the standard to know how and why.
They released many captives from the burden of plight.
The captives were freed with the capacity for flight.
Courage watched leadership rise with his word.
Reason was challenged to struggle with the absurd.
Beauty met the new moon near the end of this time.
The bull surveyed the terrain at the height of his climb.
The hunter drank in the storm faint though it had been.
He stalked the prey that he had yet to win.
Our tongues lifted sound above vocal cords.
Our joy was profound. Our bliss was adored.
Restore fortune with the cosmic sorter for order.
Grow us flowers plentiful as stars in the heavenly quarters.
Give us fertility instead of ashes.
Let water pour down while the lightening crashes.
Let oil be squeezed from olives or vegetables.
Let want be appeased, not made pallid or miserable.
Let the mantle of praise lift up the weakness of spirit.
Feel the energy of love before you hear or go near it.
Augurs of chance read spirits instead of birds.
Test your statements for the truth of the words.
Great things have been done for us in the strength of this time.
The length of darkness makes the light feel sublimely prime.
Those who managed labor throughout the last year
made a memory to transcend the feeling of fear.
Those who sowed seed with the toil of their tears
will reap joy with the music of love in the heavenly spheres.
Those who went weeping to water their seeds
will return with shoulders of sheaves to fulfill basic needs.
This voice is like that of the cry in the darkness
unbroken in facing the strength of the test.
Restore our fortune. Transform the harm of the past.
Let us have our portion. Give us confidence to last.
Psalm 126 In convertendo
1 When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, *
then were we like those who dream.
2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, *
and our tongue with shouts of joy.
3 Then they said among the nations, *
"The Lord has done great things for them."
4 The Lord has done great things for us, *
and we are glad indeed.
5 Restore our fortunes, O Lord, *
like the watercourses of the Negev.
6 Those who sowed with tears *
will reap with songs of joy.
7 Those who go out weeping, carrying the seed, *
will come again with joy, shouldering their sheaves.
to provide for those who mourn in Zion—
to give them a garland instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness instead of mourning,
the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
the planting of the Lord, to display his glory.
1 Thess. 5:20-22
Do not despise the words of prophets,* 21but test everything; hold fast to what is good; 22abstain from every form of evil.
‘I am the voice of one crying out in the wilderness,
“Make straight the way of the Lord” ’,
as the prophet Isaiah said.

Gemini is Latin for "twins," and it is associated with the twins Castor and Pollux in Greek mythology.
The twins were Castor and Polydeuces (Pollux). Together, they were known as the Dioscuri. Their sisters were Helen and Clytemnestra. They were the sons of Leda and Zeus and Tyndareus. Castor and Pollux were half-brothers. Leda was married to King Tyndareus of Sparta. At this time, she was also seduced by Zeus, so the father's of both children were uncertain. The Discouri were inseperable and grew closer with age.
Castor was a famous horsetamer and Pollux, a superb boxer. When Castor was killed during a battle, Pollux was inconsolable and gave up his own life to be with his brother. Jupiter rewarded their love by placing their images among the stars, where they shine side by side.
