FRIDAY APRIL 3, 2015
~ Ahhhhhh – – the moon slips into Libra at 3:07 AM this morning on the east coast; setting the tone for a fabulous, social holiday weekend. Your attention turns to your partners and your others, with heightened emphasis on bringing things right side up. This is the time of the lunar cycle when we give others the benefit of the doubt as we try to weigh all the pros and cons. It is a lifelong pursuit, swinging pendulum and constant battle. This is both the gift and the curse of Libra. Unable to make a decision in our attempts to be fair: alas, we judge. Therein lies the contradiction of Libra energy. The essence is all about partnership, yet “in Libra *we* judge.”
The full moon total lunar eclipse takes place tomorrow (Saturday) at 8:05 AM midway through the sign of Aries. She gets to about the halfway point and the Sun-in-Aries wishes to confront you. All up in your face, calling you out on your balance and fairness games. Can you say opposition? Aries ups the ante and escalates matters to the ‘Balance and Harmony Game.’ Two very different sides of the same coin. Hmmmm – talk about a tightrope/high wire act. This is a very difficult spot to navigate through smoothly.
Many will break up, break free, or break out. The way through is, as always, to take the road paved with love. Love is not perfect but nonetheless, it is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. It is the nirvana for all carbon life forms, precious and priceless. To achieve the balance needed on this axis, we must embrace the imperfections in *Our Others.* It is through the integration, not the rejection of our flaws and the flaws of others that we reach our greatest potential. It is the Self-Actualization at the top of Maslow’s ‘Hierarchy of Needs’ pyramid.
