It’s a Full Moon in Virgo. We need to combine criticism with compassion, emotion with analysis. The Moon also opposes Neptune mid afternoon. Some of us may feel confused and spacey while others are more creative and spiritual. When the Moon is in Virgo, we should pay attention to details and work on health issues.
Today the Dalai Lama* says: When a person has a peaceful heart and ahimsa. Without such inner peace, ahimsa (non-violence) is impossible. Therefore, peace depends on how we manage our emotions. In order to deal with our destructive emotions, we have to know how emotions work. Then we can tackle our anger and fear.
In Mayan Astrology**it’s 5 Etz’Nab also known as Flint or Knife. Others should take the lead today.
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.
