The Moon begins void-of-course in Taurus but travels into Gemini at 9:15 AM. It’s a Full Moon today which means we need to incorporate our desire for facts and research with our search for wisdom. The Moon makes an opposition to Saturn this evening and squares Neptune. Paranoid delusions can be strong this evening. The energy clears up after 10 PM when the Moon makes a positive trine to Mars. We feel energized. Still later, a Moon in opposition to Mercury means a possible communication problem.
Be mindful of the Saturn square Neptune aspect which peaks on Thanksgiving. It explains the paranoia that the Republicans are mouthing about the Syrian refugees. Carson called them rabid dogs, Huckabee said they were like rotten meat. Saturn is fear and Neptune is delusion. Let’s not succumb to it ourselves.
Today the Dalai Lama says: Analyze your life closely. If you do you will eventually find it difficult to misuse your life by becoming an automaton or by seeking money as a path to happiness.
**In Mayan Astrology it is 6 Lamat also known as the planet Venus. Let’s be selective in our choice of friends and partners.
Gardening: Moon in Gemini: Research gardening.
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.
