The Moon is in Virgo. It makes an opposition to Neptune right before Noon and we may feel spacey and confused. A positive aspect to Mars this evening means a burst of energy. A square to Saturn could be a downer unless we use it for organizational projects. When the Moon is in Virgo we may like to research health issues, tidy up and be of service.
Today the Dalai Lama* says: the essence of your spiritual life is your emotion, your attitude towards others. Once you have pure and sincere motivation, all the rest follows. You can develop this right attitude towards others on the basis of kindness, love and respect and on the clear realization of the oneness of all human beings.
In Mayan Astrology**it’s 4 Chuen also known as Monkey. This is a good day for creative projects.
Gardening: Moon in Virgo—weed the 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.
