The Moon begins void-of-course in Cancer but travels into Leo at 11:21 AM. It’s a Full Moon today and the dilemma for the next month is how to balance our contribution to the community with our own needs and desires.
Venus travels into Capricorn for the next several weeks. We’ll be more pragmatic about our relationships. Ambition may play a part on who we choose.
Today the Dalai Lama* says: The idea that people can live freely as individuals, equal in principle and therefore responsible for each other essentially agrees with the Buddhist disposition.
In Mayan Astrology**it’s 1 Lamat also known as the planet Venus. Let’s be choosy in our choice of associates.
Gardening: Moon in Cancer is good for planting. Moon in Leo: plan a children’s garden.
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.
