The Moon begins in Aries. It makes a positive aspect to Venus early this morning, which means good energy for relationships but a discordant aspect to Mercury could mean communication problems if we’re too impulsive. Some people want to be rational and use cold logic, which others find annoying because they are impatient. The Moon goes void-of-course at 3:26 PM until 9:48 when it travels into Taurus. This is a Moon square Sun day so there may be friction and feelings of discomfort.
Today the Dalai Lama* says: When you have fear you can think, others have fear similar to this; may I take to myself all of their fears. Even though you are opening yourself to greater suffering, taking greater hardship on yourself, your fear lessens.
In Mayan Astrology**it’s 7 Imix, also known as Crocodile. Let’s completely accept ourselves.
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.
