Winter Solstice Lunar Eclipse

Baby Me

The date is Saturday 19th December 1964

The place is London, SE5

Home of the ‘Camberwell Carrot’

‘The Beatles’ are ‘Top of The Pops’ with ‘I Feel Fine’

‘George Harrison’ and ‘Pattie Boyd’ have just arrived home

From from their holiday in Nassau in the Bahamas

Episode 5 of ‘Dr. Who and the Dalek Invasion of the Earth’ has aired

Watched by 11.4 million viewers

Accompanied by a winter-solstice full-moon, total-lunar-eclipse in Sagittarius

And ready or not, Cat Catalyst is coming!

Six weeks premature, breech birth, in the middle of a power cut!

The emergency arc lights are deployed

Princess Anne’s donated incubator is on standby

And Aquarius is gazumped by two star signs

Weighing in at just 3lbs 15oz

A utopian Sagittarian dreamer is born

Someone who had their own drum right from the very start

Someone who was never going to be able to ‘dumb-it-down’, in order to fit in

Was never going to march

Was always going to dance

Dance to the rhythm of ones own heart

One Heart, One Pulse, One Love

One, One…

One, One…

One, One…

Come On


Take me on you bastards

I’m gonna take your money

Before you’ve even started!

And your life

And your wife

Pop will eat itself

Left on the shelf-life

Of expiry

Half-baked has beans

Next to the cereal entrepreneur

Failure and success

They don’t care

Risk addicts

Thrill and dare

Is worth the stakes

Have got what it takes

Go for the reward

The high-rise prize

Be the best

The millionaire mind

Lateral solutions

Think outside the box

Forget the mobile phone

The computer

The children

61% put money, mortgage and loan

Before relationship, marriage

And family home

Workaholics, 61 hours a week

No time to listen

To the beating heart

Surmounting failure

Is another invitation

To try again

Be the risk taker

Never giving up

But what about

The millionaire mind

Of the spiritual kind

Pure gold

Follow your heart

Find your joy

Work for yourself

Become a pioneer

Lead the team

Building the roman road

Paving the way

For others

Whom we may one day

Might meet, know, or love


From the heart

Open heart

Soul love

Finding the connection

It’s not about ego

Is not about control

Or manipulation

Or changing someone

To fit your ideal

It’s about acceptance



Across the nation
