Chasing Copernicus

Sky and Stars - Consuelo Suarez

He charts a course through my stars, 
Seeking to find a glimmer of me 
In tandem transit with the sun in Taurus, 
Dancing with Venus through my eighth house,  
Lingering traces as Leo rises above my horizon.  
Gravity keeps me in his orbit 
With only the occasional period of retrograde… 
At least until the day he discovers 
That the center of my universe 
Looks nothing like him.

Written for a prompt from Poetic Bloomings asking for a poem about our astrological sign.
