In the pursuit of knowledge, every day something is added. In the practice of the Tao, every day something is dropped. Less and less do you need to force things, until finally you arrive at non-action. When nothing is done, nothing is left undone.
True mastery can be gained by letting things go their own way. It can’t be gained by interfering.

Wednesday Wizdom with a friend “Inspirational Rx for body, mind & soul”
The warrior planet – Mars – has been transiting through gentle and sensitive Pisces since April 14th, and this transit lasts 5 whole weeks 🥵 Hold onto your fire hose.
I’m someone well versed in this subject, because I have a Mars-Sun conjunction in Pisces in the 6th House. And that’s a whole story in and of itself to navigate these strange bedfellows, because Mars is all action and fireworks, whilst Pisces is more subdued, easygoing and intuitive. But that’s for another day.
Let’s talk about this Mars in Pisces transit.
This transit began 9 days ago, so if you’ve been feeling a little out of sorts, a little fired up over seemingly benign things and maybe even a little passive-aggressive, even more irritated than usual – that’s the effect of this transit, and of course it’s going to be more intense for those of you with a strong Mars-Pisces influence in the natal chart, including strong aspects such as squares or oppositions to top it off.
During this transit, all of us will need to accommodate the two points between faith, compassion and healing vs putting up your dukes to fight for a cause or an ideal. There’s no in between with these dual driven planets – fire vs water. Remember that water 💦 puts out fire 🔥which is why you may need that fire hose.
But overall during this transit you will be motivated to take action, just in a more diminutive or subtle way. Be ambitious but not over powering. Take charge, but be sensitive.
👊Fight for what you believe in, but don’t trash the party.
