This year, the New Moon in Aries (Sun conjunct Moon in Aries) occurs on the 28th March 2017. Aries, ruled by Mars, ancient Roman god of war, is a sign of initiative and bravery, which governs the head and the brain. So, this is a good time to take action, to innovate, to bring something new to our life. Maybe what we need most is a new perspective and a new way of thinking, braver than before. First, you need to get rid of old and unhealthy thought patterns. This is why we propose you, as a preparation for this New Moon, a short but meaningful Zen story.

Prepare for the New Moon with a Zen Story: 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?“
