The Moon is in Aries. It makes a positive aspect to Saturn late afternoon and we can get work on tedious paperwork and organizational projects. A discordant aspect to Pluto and Uranus later this evening is a sign that disruptive and dictatorial people may be in our environment. When the Moon is in Aries we can begin new projects and enjoy physical work and exercise. We can also be impulsive and argumentative.
Today the Dalai Lama* says: Simple ordinary compassion depends on how the persons concerned think about us. It doesn’t extend to our enemies. Trained compassion, on the other hand, can extend to all sentient beings, even those hostile to us.
In Mayan Astrology**it’s 6 Ahau, also known as Lord or Flower. Another day to enjoy the simple things in life.
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.
