Right Action ~> New Aries Moon April 2013

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. ❤
