Aquarius Balsamic Moon
—April 24

Whether it is through or toward your goals, ideals, or dreams, or if it’s merely a familial or social obligation or duty—there may be a new or lingering need or chore that you may, or, more likely, may not be too eager to tend to… however, it’s now your duty to do so.

In fact, “there is a need to develop responses above and beyond the normal expected level…” as you’re likely still feeling a bit alienated or displaced toward whatever it is you’re navigating…

There is a need (as well) to develop a new skill. Not so much an active training in action—but a subtle inner learning lesson.

It may, however, feel as though you’re efforts, time, or skills are being, or becoming, compromised in some way—this is to be avoided, of course, as is the ease in which you may take something on that isn’t yours, just to get around it or beyond it.

Also (un)natural manifestations through today’s energies could involve a smidge of victimhood—your own or an/Other—claiming certain (lacking) behaviors are a result of this, that, or the other… this, too, is less than acceptable—behavior can always be upgraded, and particularly today, should be given such efforts.

Whatever it is you’re navigating, there is a high likelihood of difficulty or delay—but also, whatever you’re navigating invites potentials for new realizations and possibilities… “by controlling your passions, and making conscious and wise decisions about your life, you can find an objective position that allows you to understand what’s happening…”

Further still, and perhaps most pertinently, today’s heaviest, and most loaded, lunarly degree asks of you: can you sublimate your thoughts, desires, and passions?—particularly toward your personal conquest of “going after more tangible, real or worthwhile spiritual or material concerns…”

Astrologer Dane Rudhyar transcribed this degree as “the constructive use to which difficult past experiences can be put as examples for those who are still striving to overcome their passions…” which sounds very born-again Christian-ie to me, though I think a more substantial depth is being offered here that easily surpasses again religious harassments; Rudhyar continues, that “every type of experience can be made to serve a spiritual purpose… every man or woman, however humble his or her status, can be an example to younger people who are still struggling—we are given a never-to-be-forgotten hint: it is the responsibility of anyone who has taken one step ahead in his evolution to help others to take that step. This is true education.”

Can you ‘live your truth’ while simultaneously letting go, or getting rid of, some of the luxuries you claim to be part of such truths?

Can you conquer your own base nature in a larger effort of conquering your overall ideals?

Can you, ultimately, be an example to others through your own upgraded actions?

Today’s moon is asking of you to do so.

Do or do not. There is no try.❞
