Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence.
~ Lin Yutang said that.
Sometimes you have to fight for what is right, and if it turns out that you do that now, exercise self control. The Moon, Mars, and Saturn trine. That’s deliberate. Deliberate conduct, controlled emotion.
Mars sits on the north node. A turning point. We are vessels for a kind of karmic equilibrium action plan.
It’s an Air trine, a balance of rules, regulations, activity and emotion.
The Sun, Chiron, and Venus are together: only authenticity, only originality, and they manage a sextile to both Saturn and our Mars/North node. A kite takes shape. What happens moves the plot. Let’s not begrudge the second act of our play it’s defining characteristics.
A conflict, a conundrum, pain, an incongruity, something of a power move is made. Like is pitted against desire or even need. I like olives, but I need to share them with you, or you won’t like me. And I need that. I need you to like me or at least to find me fair.
Meeting your own needs versus the needs of a partner could easily figure. Remember to represent your actual wishes, and as you do that, think, how can I harmonize?
It’s possible you don’t know what you want.
Listen for what God(s) would tell you if only they could.… they can… maybe…
Something about the structure of time. About how, whatever shows up for you, you will ultimately integrate.
It may be a tiny bit confusing… Just know that compassion is never outdated & you don’t know all there is to know… Not yet.
Mercury conjuncts Neptune, lies may be spread, rumours. I don’t think they will be effective, and you don’t let them work on you, emkay?
In fact, use some of that Pisces Neptune blurriness to soften whatever inevitable interpersonal drama, sacrifice, or shadow puppet work seems to cloud the proceedings. You are not supposed to worry. It won’t help.
Listen now to Mark Twain’s longevity advice on his 70th birthday, in 1905:
– I have achieved my seventy years in the usual way: by sticking strictly to a scheme of life which would kill anybody else. It sounds like an exaggeration, but that is really the common rule for attaining to old age. When we examine the programme of any of these garrulous old people we always find that the habits which have preserved them would have decayed us; that the way of life which enabled them to live upon the property of their heirs so long, as Mr. Choate says, would have put us out of commission ahead of time. I will offer here, as a sound maxim, this: That we can’t reach old age by another man’s road.-
Be real with yourself for this one, and as needed, we may also be evasive, charismatic, and opaque. You do what you gotta do. If it comes down to it, you know the drill: Always Apologize, Never Explain.
Let’s think of this moon as playing out over the next few days after it happens. It’s not all clear in one go. I believe we adjust.
A pivotal day arrives on March 30th. Sudden choices regarding security and value, as the Moon Opposes Uranus, perhaps in some way we reject emotion, leave home.. and then on the 31st we put a bit of a bandaid on it. We begin to understand and move ahead with new compassion.
In the days after the Libra Full Moon we deepen our knowledge of what is necessary, and more especially what is true. As we arrive in April it’s beautiful action energy.
Think of this Full Moon moment as push to the next level, amid some general forced proceedings, alongside perhaps a bit of magic, compassion, or confusion.
What we know is that the next level is a place we do want to be. As we go on our way, it does come with a reveal… By the 5th or 6th of April, we shall know a thing or two about a thing or two worth knowing.
Here is a quote from Mary Oliver to send you on your way.
The god of dirt
came up to me many times and said
so many wise and delectable things; I lay
on the grass listening
to his dog voice,
frog voice; now
he said, and now,
and never once mentioned forever
In this now, in this moment, of this now, let’s be right here with each other. Just breathing, just breathing together. As we breathe let’s remember that there are no meaningful separations between the particles of your molecules and the particles of the molecules surrounding you.
No separation between the air that enters your body and your body itself. We are all becoming, we are infinitely entwined, interconnected, woven, we are the very fabric of the limitless power of creation. I’m so glad you are alive. I’m so glad you are here, alive and breathing with us.
