The Moon is in Cancer. It opposes Mercury, Pluto, and squares Uranus all before Noon. It could mean a disruptive morning due to communication snafus. People can be overly sensitive and there can be hurt feelings, particularly with family members if we don’t tread lightly. With Mercury in conjunction to Pluto, the problem lies with dictatorial and abusive language. Later this evening with the Moon positively aspecting Jupiter, the energy lightens up and we can enjoy ourselves.
Today the Dalai Lama* says: According to Buddhism, individuals are master of their own destinies. So our future is in our own hands. What greater free will do we need?
In Mayan Astrology**it’s 13 Manik also known as Deer. We should feel comfortable with our own individuality.
Gardening: Moon in Cancer is good for planting.
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.
