The Moon is in Taurus. It makes a positive aspect to Pluto in the morning. We can get research done and delve into a mystery or two. A positive aspect to Jupiter early evening indicates upbeat enthusiasm. We enjoy cooking, and tactile arts. Moon goes void-of-course until tomorrow at 9:15 AM.
Mercury conjuncts Saturn this evening and squares Neptune.

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.
