The Moon is in Aries. A positive aspect to Saturn early in the morning is good for doing anything tedious. It makes a discordant aspect mid afternoon to Pluto. There’s a chance we’ll run into threatening people. A discordant aspect to Mercury a little later means a communication problem. Early evening a conjunction to Uranus could mean a surprise or a desire to break free of entanglements.
Mercury conjuncts Pluto today. Some people can use this energy to be argumentative and dictatorial. We can also use it to do research and dig deeper into our lives.
Today the Dalai Lama says: Discrimination against persons of different races, against women and against weaker sections of society may be traditional in some regions, but if they are inconsistent with universally recognized human rights, these forms of behavior should change. The universal principle of the equality of all human beings must take precedence.
In Mayan Astrology**it’s 5 Ben also known as Reed. Apply social skills today.
Gardening: Moon in Aries. Plant 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.
