Libra Full Moon : The Pacifist & The Warrior

“I can’t give you a formula for success but I can give you a formula for failure: try to please everybody all the time.” Herbert Bayard Swope

“Learning to ignore things is one of the great paths to inner peace.” Robert J. Sawyer

“Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you’re a man, you take it.” Malcolm X

“An argument is always about what has been made more important than the relationship.” – Hugh Prather

“All disagreements are results of misunderstanding someone else’s level of consciousness” – Deepak Chopra

I don’t consider myself a person who avoids conflict. I do believe, though, that once the rules of civility are crossed, a bony finger points with blind recrimination toward another, name-calling commences, expletives are used, all hope for intelligence discourse exits the conversation. That level of relating is about as easy to take as listening to the heavy metal band at full volume, or crashing drums & cymbals. Once that happens, I will avoid like crazy. I will avoid the topic, the person, and likely the situation altogether. I will become the lotus-eater, the passive resistor or yes, the fence-sitter aspect of my Libra planets and rising. I will refuse to take sides with anyone who doesn’t approach me with respect & kindness. I will sit in my hot tub instead of listening to the news, and I will probably eat bon bons (or at least drink a nice glass of Pink House red wine) while doing it. [Read more…]

New Moon in Pisces : Steam

Steam_By_FenceSitterEvery year as the planets one by one precess into Pisces, I find my self losing steam. Ordinary daily activities seem to take more time, doing the dishes, laundry, taking care of the animals creeps into the daily agenda and suddenly these little persnickety things, that endless to do list that makes life function, dominates. Pisces is on my sixth house cusp, that’s the house of among other things, the mundane life. Or as I’ve been known call it, the house of grunt and grow work. Pisces has been great for furthering my skill and craft in astrology at my teacher’s bi-annual workshop (apprenticeship=6th house), and for the love and affection I’m genuinely feeling toward my new cat (pets=6th house). But an observation I make and also hear from clients this time of year: projects move slowly and people are missing in action, daresay it, wishy-washy. Plans simmer on the back-burner and when nothing’s happening our minds go into idle mode, feeding our anxieties and uncertainties. I remind them, and myself, that it’s the time of year. Pisces symbolizes the seasonal end of a cycle. [Read more…]
