The Moon begins in Cancer and makes a positive aspect to Mars early morning and we have enough energy to start our day with exercise. The Moon goes void-of-course at 6:36 AM until it travels into Leo at 6:17 PM. Cancerian energy is good for work around the home while Leo energy is favorable for creative projects and hobbies.
Today the Dalai Lama* says: A good teacher is not only someone who has more knowledge, but who also shows concern for the student’s entire development.

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.
