Full Moon Astrology Horoscope Forecast For Today, April 8, 2018 By Zodiac Sign
Zodiac, Self

Spread your wings and fly, zodiac signs!

The Sun is in Aries and the last quarter Moon is in Capricorn, and even though our growth is uncertain, it's fully present. Sometimes that's all that matters.

When I think of days like today, I remember a time when I grew a butterfly garden in my backyard. My two older sons had received a science kit that provided a chrysalis with a baby butterfly inside of it. 

It was an ugly little bulb of grey matter and yet we knew inside held the promise of something beautiful and magnificent. We waited for what felt like an eternity, checking daily for that first wing exposure. When one morning it happened.

In our ignorance, one child started to help the poor struggling butterfly force itself out of it's tightly wrapped safe house. He succeeded but then the poor thing did a sob song of a dance. Its wings lacked the strength and perhaps there was even a slight tear. it had all the wing-span potential promised to other Monarchs but it couldn't fly. Instead, it crashed into our swimming pool fated to see the day no more.

My other son, lazy and not really interested in the project overall hadn't bothered to be 'helpful'. He would just watch the butterfly do its thing as it seemed to nearly die to squeeze itself from the erupting frame.

Then suddenly, it came out completely sitting atop of what looked like the equivalent of a clothing pile on the floor in a teenager's room.

Its wings slowly moved back and forth before it dared try to fly.

We stood there absorbing the miracle of the new life then it suddenly lifted folding hands and flew away. 

We later learned that helping the butterfly during its struggle could kill it and that taught us a valuable lesson. Sometimes you have to let a person go through their struggle so that they can gain the strength to fly on their own. Wings attached and all!

Our final day with a Sun in Aries and a Moon in Capricorn reminds us of this same song and dance. We are growing, folks, but it's not a time to force it. It's a time to let the struggle be as it may be and gain the strength to do what we are here to do. When the time to fly away to our places in the world comes, we'll be ready.
