New Moon 20° Aries Wednesday April 10th @10:34BST
“It is not enough to be compassionate, we must act.” ~ His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama __/❤\__
☽☼☾ While collective compassion remains accented in the heavens, it is a
stellium in fiery Aries that now symbolises dynamic action, leadership,
and pioneering derring-do that urges one to confidently undertake take
new challenges and adventures.
The excitable energy of this
ardent Aries Moon with the Sun, Venus, Mars, and Uranus, all together in
the courageous sign of the Ram, indicates an extraordinary quest that
bursts forth into something fiery, passionate, and original.
‘The Lights’ (Sun & Moon) are tightly entwined with relationship
planets; thus the cosmic mission gets up-close and personal, as it calls
for the individual to discover love, self-love, loving what we do that
contributes to the benefit of society, our friends and family. His
Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama also says in reference to action, “The more
you are motivated by Love, The more Fearless & Free your action
will be.” And when we are fearless, enthused with a good heart, we're
then able to engage in what is known in Buddhism as ‘Right Action’.
Right Action is part of the eightfold Dharma path, and implies
utilising the kind of mindfulness that can quickly nip in the bud the
Aries tendency towards emotional outbursts, anger or impatience. Right
action also entails having the moral courage to respect all life (not
just human life) by living by certain precepts, the main ones of which
are: 1) no killing (any living being) 2) no stealing or taking what is
not given 3) no lying (not even to oneself) 4) no sexual misconduct, and
5) no intoxicants. There are many more precepts reserved for either
being a monastic or on retreat; but these basic vows describe the right
action for a lay spiritual warrior to live an enlightened life.
Admittedly it takes awareness to keep to all five, but if you have never
thought about these actions before, consciously doing even one is a
step on the path to becoming a baby Bodhisattva.
So while the
Sun and new Moon conjunct Love Goddess Venus & Warrior Mars, the
time is now right to make light offerings, motivate and fire up ‘Right
Action’: Plant seeds of •❤• █▄◯╲╱☰ • ❤ now, then watch L❀VE, strength
& personal happiness grow. ❤
