The Moon is in Virgo. It makes a conjunction to Jupiter late afternoon and we feel upbeat and more enthusiastic. The Moon goes void-of-course at 4:11 PM until 6:59 AM tomorrow when it travels into Libra. We should pay attention to details today and improve our working environment.
Today the Dalai Lama* says: desire is a part of life. For example, we all have a desire for lunch. Without natural desire, we all would die. The problem is when we have too much desire, that’s when we need contentment. But while satisfaction and contentment are appropriate on an individual level, they are not on a national level, because nations need to develop. What we also need is self-confidence, because defeatism and low morale are a sure source of failure
In Mayan Astrology**it’s 5 EB also known as Grass. Let’s not poison ourselves with suppressed anger.
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.
