The Moon is in Leo. It makes a positive aspect to Saturn in the early morning, which makes it a good time for tedious organizational work. A positive aspect to Mars early afternoon is energizing while a trine to Mercury late tonight indicates easy communications. It’s a Moon trine Sun day which means life is easier and since both Moon and Sun are fire suns, we have more energy to enjoy it. Creative projects, hobbies, games, and time spent with children are enjoyable.
Today the Dalai Lama says: We don’t give our compassion to such and such a person by choice. We give it spontaneously wit out hoping for anything in exchange. And we give it universally.
**In Mayan Astrology it is 12 Ix also known as Jaguar. Let’s develop our healing and counseling skills.
Gardening: Moon in Leo: Plan a garden as a creative project.
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.
