On April 7th, 2016, Sun conjuncts Moon in Aries. The New Moon occurring in the sign of Aries, ruled by the dynamic and energetic Mars, announces a good time to take action, to innovate, to bring something new to your life.
Probably, there are some things you always said you’ll do, without actually starting. Well, today is the best time to take the first step.
Aries governs the head and the brain, so, with both Sun and Moon in this sign, what we need most is a new perspective, a new way of thinking. This implies, of course, the courage to question your beliefs. Without it, it is impossible to learn something new. This well-known Zen story reminds you this:
Empty Your Cup!
A university professor went to visit a famous Zen master. While the master quietly served tea, the professor talked about Zen. The master poured the visitor’s cup to the brim, and then kept pouring.
The professor watched the overflowing cup until he could no longer restrain himself.
„It’s overfull! No more will go in!“ the professor blurted.
„You are like this cup“, the master replied, „How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?“
