Metamorphosis Lexigram

By the Staff


Lexigram is the name Linda Goodman gave to a decoding process she applied to words in the English language. The famed author of books of astrology and metaphysics believed there were inner meanings hidden within words and phrases, and she believed that the English language preserved those inner meanings in a way that could be decoded by moving the letters about, forming words, phrases and sentences, with intuition as a guide. Often when Lexigrams are worked in this manner they seem to arrange themselves as poetry.

According to Linda’s rules for the process, which she detailed in Linda Goodman’s Star Signs, the word or phrase that is to be decoded by Lexigram may contain no more than 13 of the 26 individual letters of the alphabet. It also should not contain all five vowels; it’s best with only two or three, but four is acceptable. If a letter is repeated in the original word, it can also repeat in the words derived from it. For instance, Metamorphosis, with two M’s, can give rise to the word “Mom” in a Lexigram.

In honor of Linda Goodman’s April 9 birthday, Metamorphosis publishes its first Lexigram and enthusiastically seeks reader participation in creating more. We would love it if you would take some time in April to meditate on the phrase “PEACE ON EARTH” and see where the word druids lead you. Send the words, phrases, sentences or verses you come up with to metamorphosis@consciousevolution.com. We’ll try combining the insights to see what comes of an exercise in community-wide Lexigramming. It should be fun! Please join in!

To kick things off, Sucheta Shetty and other members of the newsletter staff tuned into the title of our publication. Here is the Lexigram of Metamorphosis:

METAMORPHOSIS = AEHIMMOOPRSST

A RAM, AT HOME, AT HEART, AT HER ROOTS
HER STAR SHIMMERS
HER TEAM SHARES THEIR HEARTS
SHE IS THE OASIS, SHE RESTS THEM

AMOR ROAMS THIS OASIS
HEAR HER - SHE STIRS HOPE
SHE SHAPES THEIR HEARTS
SHE STIRS AMOR

SHARE A MOTHER’S EAR
REST AT THIS OASIS
HEAR EARTH’S HEART
MASTER A STAR METAPHOR

THE EARTH’S HEART IS HER ARIA
METAMORPHOSIS IS THE EARTH’S ARIA
METAMORPHOSIS IS HER HEART, HER HOPE, HER REST

HATE TEARS HER HEART
TAME HATE, HEARTMATE – ARISE
RESIST HATE
AS THE STORM HITS -

I AM MORE THAN THIS
I AM HOME TO THE EARTH’S HEART
I TAME HATE; I TAME HEARTS
HATE STEMS AS SORE HEARTS SMART
MOIST TEARS STREAM AS HATE STARES AT THEM
HATE ROTS THE HEART

HATE MORPHS INTO A SEA - THE SEA IS AMOR
ARISE, AS EARTH’S TREMORS TOSS HATE TO SEA
ARISE AS SHE RIOTS, RIPS, TEARS
AS STARS STREAM TO THE SEA

THE ART OF HOPE IS THE HOPE OF ART,
THIS THESIS AIMS TO SHARE, TO SHAPE
TO SOAR, SEA TO SEA
IT IS THE OAR

MISTS AT SOME SHORES SHIMMER
TIME AT THOSE SHORES SHAPES APOTHEOSIS AS ART.
THE HERO-METAPHOR PHASE
HITS THE POET LIKE A STORM ...
TIME TO RITE SOME MORE.

EMPATHS SHAPE PHRASES,
TRAITORS SHAPE PHRASES,
THEIR PHRASES IMPRESS, TEAR, POSIT

IS THIS HARM?
TO SOME A MORASS?
IT SMOTHERS ME, HIM, HER, THEM, OTHERS
SOME TIMES.

HATE IS A SHAM
AMOR REPAIRS HATE
IT MORPHS AT TIME’S SEAS
TO MOSS AND ROSES

HEAR THE HARP OF EARTH
EARTH IS MARS’ SISTER, OR HIS MOTHER
MARS IS RASH
SOME TIMES

THIS IS THE OASIS, THE PIER
TO TIME MASTERS,
STAR MOTHERS,
STAR SISTERS

SHARE THE EARTH - SHE IS THE MOTHER
OPT TO MASTER HOPE
SHAPE AND SHARE MOTHER EARTH’S STAR ERA
RAISE A TOAST TO PROSE

AT HEART, I AM AMOR
I AM THE EARTH’S HOPE
I HOIST AMOR TO THE OTHER SHORE
HOPE SOARS ...
