A lifetime is not what is between
the moments of birth and death.
A lifetime is one moment
Between my two little breaths.
The present, the here, the now,
That’s all the life I get.
I live each moment in full,
In kindness, in peace, without regret.
Chade Meng, Taoist poet
See that Full Moon. It’s her time to shine.
Complexities are highlighted.
there is pressure from all sides.
She walks a tightrope.
Torn between her head and her belly.
Mediating towards equilibrium
in a shifting equation
of intensity, responsibility and extremes.
Cooperation is key.
The Moon is singing:
Give Peace a Chance.
Moon in Libra, It’s her time to shine,
in the matrix of planets in a tense design.
“As this life is not a gate, but the horse plunging through it.” Jane Hirshfield
Get up and go!
Hold back, be responsible.
Too fast, too slow?
Do it now, wait and see. Be careful.
Hurry up, now is the time.
Stay steady and plan ahead.
Follow impulse. Jump to it.
Impatience at the wheel.
Restraint and adherence to the rules.
Stick with it and don’t give up.
“Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. Peace means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in the heart.” Marcel Morin
This lunation culminates in a cardinal t-square which usually indicates crisis with excitement and challenge. Aries impatience chafes with Capricorn’s caution and reserve. Anger arises. Control is displayed. Agitation, discussions and negotiations. Ambition, desire and ideals.
Venus in Taurus (Venus rules both Libra and Taurus) adds a solid voice for slowing down with pleasure, as well as gravitating towards practical and creative solutions. Libra is drawn towards talking about co-creating balance, harmony and cooperation. Aries challenges and asserts individuality. The full moon vibe reaches new levels as Mercury retrograde (Aries) reaches an inferior conjunction with the Sun on April 1, followed by Mars conjunct Saturn in Capricorn on April 2. These aspects will be eye-opening, How is this showing up in your life?
Discern what you want and what you need, claim your authority and take action responsibly. Notice what is your focus. Where are you grounded? This is a turning point. There are choices and decisions to be made.

“Thanks so much again for my reading. I loved your micro and macro, past, present and future overviews. The key Saturn-influenced dates as turning points in my life were uncanny, unnerving, and resonated well with my recollection of events. I would like to sit with this reading, reflect and then follow up in two months with some specific questions.” Maureen White, Sacramento, CA
