It’s a Full Moon in Cancer. Emotions are stronger when it’s a Full Moon and today they will be focused on home and family. The Moon makes a positive aspect to Neptune in the morning. We should get what we wished for, material or spiritual. The Moon makes a discordant aspect late this evening. Some family members may be argumentative.
Mercury makes a positive aspect to Jupiter early afternoon. This is a great time for positive thoughts. People are in a generous mood.
Uranus goes direct and stops retrograding. In the weeks and months ahead will be the time to market innovations and inventions, study metaphysics and astrology.
Today the Dalai Lama says: We are all on this planet together. We are all brothers and sisters with the same physical and mental faculties, the same problems and the same needs. We must all contribute to the fulfillment of the human potential and the improvement of quality of life as much as we are able. Mankind is crying out for help. Ours is a desperate time. Those who have something to offer should come forward. Now is the time.

Gardening: Full Moon in Cancer—plant root crops.
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.
