Echoes of longing for the holding, soothing and connection we miss.

One of my favourite albums is Coldplay’s Ghost Stories.  So many tracks on it resonate with me and when I finally googled the birth chart of Chris Martin a year or so after it was released I found out that like me he has the Saturn Moon conjunction and if you don’t know the Moon is mother and Saturn Moon relates not only to mother hunger but to a deeper sense of disconnection and loss we feel around emotions and mothering and all human connection really.

With that in mind this afternoon as gun metal grey skies surround my wee home and the cold of night creeps in on icy feet I am listening to this track and really felt the need to share it.   I sometimes feel I can actually feel Chris Martin’s soul resonating with pain that merges with my own when I listen this track, and he made something so hauntingly  painful and beautiful when he wrote this song.  And when I listen to it I don’t hear the lyric ‘Another’s Arms” as much as the words ‘A Mother’s Arms’… possibly my projection but I am not so sure.
