The Reign of My Pysche

Today, March 20, is an auspicious day for endings and beginnings according to astrologers so this morning I thought it fitting to finally end the Reign of My Psyche. I thanked her for protecting me all these years then gently chopped off her head. Not really, but I did take her crown. My Psyche has been Queen of all things Dawn as far back as I can remember.
