The Liezi: Daoist text from 4th century CE

“Some people think they can find satisfaction in good food, fine clothes, lively music, and sexual pleasure. However, when they have all these things, they are not satisfied. They realize happiness is not simply having their material needs met. Thus, society has set up a system of rewards that go beyond material goods. These include titles, social recognition, status, and political power, all in a package called self-fulfillment. Attracted and goaded on by social pressure, people spend their short lives tiring body and mind to chase after these goals. Perhaps this gives them the feeling that they have achieved something in their lives, but in reality they have sacrificed a lot in life. They can no longer see, hear, act, feel, or think from their hearts. In the end, they’ve spent their lives following other people’s demands and never lived a life of their own. How different is this from the life of a slave or a prisoner?”

Balance. That’s the keyword this week. Most of us are feeling waaaaaay out of balance right now, so spend this week correcting that as best as you can 🙂 For me, I need to start exercising again lol. The Full Moon tomorrow is in the sign of partnership, so it’s a great day/week to reach out to others, clear the air or reach agreements.

The planet Venus is the ruler of Libra, and she is currently in Gemini… which adds to the theme of balance and partnerships. Mars is over in Aquarius, another Air sign, which makes this full Moon chatty and social. Practice disciplining your mind this week by quelling negative thoughts through meditation.

Here’s where the Full Moon will effect you this week. This is for your RISING sign, which you can figure out here for free:

Aries = Full Moon focuses on all partnerships…. the OTHER. Issues or revelations could arise with friends, family, business or marriage.

Taurus = Does your body and health need attention? Full Moon brings up revelations around work, health, sickness, lifestyle and habits. Heal through observing your patterns.

Gemini = Full Moon focuses on children, art and romances. Heal through creativity. Do your passion.

Cancer = Full Moon brings relief with your literal House, as well as your psychology. Realizations arise from the deepest, darkest, most personal parts of you and you feel peace. Roots, foundations, family of origin and property issues.

Leo = Full Moon highlights contact, communications, writing and teaching. Expect breakthroughs with close community, kindred spirits, neighbors and your inbox.

Virgo = Full Moon culmination around money and your valuables. Could be breakthroughs around your self-esteem, resources or values.

Libra = Full moon culminates your vision, image, and how you see the world. You might change your look, self-image in relationships or how others see you. Heal through changes in identity.

Scorpio = Full Moon illuminates your subliminal mind and psyche. Personal truths normally hidden from you are revealed. Heal through spirituality and meditation. Retreat, solitude and sacrifice.

Sagittarius = Full Moon brings attention to your social groups and community. Expect positive breakthroughs with gains and wishes too. Heal through manifesting dreams.

Capricorn = Full Moon shines on your public image and career. Good developments regarding your reputation and visibility. You could be elevated in some way.

Aquarius = Full Moon brings progress in the areas of travel and life perspective. Also look for culmination with personal philosophy, education and adventure.

Pisces = Full Moon highlights issues around the soul, the occult and other people’s money (like credit). Sex, death and taxes. Heal through intensity – either spiritually or with another person.
