The Moon is in Aries and we wake up with a discordant aspect to Pluto. Some people are controlling and dictatorial. An opposition to Venus may not be very pleasant either. Some people want to do what they want while others demand equality. A conjunction to Uranus at 11:16 AM means that independent action wins and then the Moon goes void-of-course until 8:26 AM when it travels into Taurus.
The Sun travels into Sagittarius. The month of Sagittarius is generally optimistic and upbeat despite the possible bad weather. It’s a good time for travel, spending more time in the outdoors and working on educational goals.
Today the Dalai Lama says: It seems to me that western science and eastern philosophy can join together to create a complete and full-fledged human being. It is only in this way that man will emerge strengthened from his condition and become whole. What in fact interests me is what is beyond matter and awareness, what really is important, and what makes us what we are.
**In Mayan Astrology it is 3 Chicchan, also known as Snake. This is a day for transformati0n.
Gardening: Moon in Aries: Good for planting onions and garlic.
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.
