In astrology, influence is ‘the radiation of an ethereal fluid from the stars, regarded as affecting human actions and destinies’.

A free-falling body; arms splayed sideways, legs working hard to stay together, like a long and pointy arrow, a stretched cross cutting through the wind; a dart aiming towards somewhere I don't know where.

A Swan dive, plunge towards change, the metamorphoses of personality, shift of persona.

Impulse to jump. The cliff, a never-ending abyss. Landing in an unknown destination. Countless territories waiting to be explored. So you poignantly try to scurry all the pieces of information together and make your own territory, your form, your way. The one luxury, amidst all the hunger to feed your mind, an allowance, encouraging space to find where you fall.

Malleable gazelles lurking inside you. Incapability of anger, in dear need of mending. A great joy escapes your heart. Your soul evokes a thunder. You too, have an impact on the world. Strangers you momentarily lock eyes with.

The impact! Like a flush of water down our bodies, the influence each person has on another, a filtering colonization in our blood, of someone else’s energy and life force. As physical manifestations of planet earth, every time we are able to see another as they are, with every flaw and chemical mystery of their being is a feat.
