The Moon is in Pisces and it could be a confusing hour when it conjuncts Neptune mid morning. It’s better to use this energy for creative projects and/or spiritual work. A positive aspect to Pluto this evening helps us to let go of things we no longer need and to do some renovation. Oppositions to Venus and Jupiter later on could mean relationship glitches if we go emotionally overboard. When the Moon is in Pisces we can enjoy music, movies, and psychic studies.
The Sun travels into Scorpio today. This is the time of year for facing the reality of death, for working on psychological and spiritual transformation, for looking into sexual issues, for dealing with joint finances as well as debts and other people’s resources.
*Today the Dalai Lama says: Along with love, compassion is the face of altruism. It is a feeling from deep in the heart that you cannot bear others’ sufferings, without acting to relieve it.
**In Mayan Astrology it’s 12 Men also known as Eagle. Let’s acquire a deeper knowledge of human nature.
Gardening: Moon in Pisces—good for planting.
Remember, being aware of astrological energies means that not only are we in tune with the cosmos, we’re also in tune with ourselves. Socrates said an unexamined life is not worth living, and another ancient Greek said, Know thyself. We can convert stressful planetary aspects to harmonious energies if we are aware of how they affect us and we are willing to take responsibility for our actions, without blaming others for our difficulties.
