Long ago someone gave me a poster that said “Too wet to plow might as well Dance” it hung on my door for years and acted like a portal into optimism when life seemed gloomy. This quip seems to be a good reminder of how to navigate in seas of constant change. Life on Earth is so mushy and confusing. Trying to take a firm hand to control thing will only create frustration. With 5 planets in now in Aries we all may feel the urge to take off somewhere but don’t know where, or lead to a feeling of extreme overwhelm. Ask yourself:
Mercury will go direct April 23 and will relieve some pressure. Until then we have the Full Moon in Libra April 17th. Libra is ruled by Venus so the need for balance and justice will be opposing the Sun in Aries and his insistence on freedom.
Relationships will be at the forefront of our consciences. Use the light of the Sun and Moon to guide you to deeper understanding of your beloved other. That other may be a person, a place or an idea. Seeking equanimity is at the Heart of the Libra Full Moon. Take life by hand (connect) and promenade (move) around the dance hall a few times and see if things don’t look a little different when you take a break to listen to the music of the spring time. April 20th the Sun will enter Earthy Taurus until then let’s relish the fun side of Aries:
Aries the first sign of the Zodiac also, represents all thing new and youthful. It likes to Play. Hafiz suggests we all join in the “Wonderful Game”.
A Suspended Blue Ocean
Is a suspended blue ocean.
The stars are the fish
The planets are the white whales
I sometimes hitch a ride on,
And the sun and all light
Have forever fused themselves
Into my heart and upon
There is only one rule
On this Wild Playground,
For every sign Hafiz has ever seen
Reads the same.
They all say,
“Have fun, my dear; my dear, have fun,
In the Beloved’s Divine
O, in the Beloved’s
