The Moon is in Scorpio and it makes a conjunction to Mars at 11:55 AM. This is good for an energetic work-out rather than impatience and fireworks. The Moon goes void-of-course then until 3:56 PM when it travels into Sagittarius. Evening hours should be more peaceful and less intense.
Venus makes a positive aspect to Saturn. This is a good aspect for making a commitment in a relationship.
Today the Dalai Lama* says: So long as people give priority to material values, then injustice, corruption, inequity, intolerance and greed–all the manifestations of inner values will persist.
In Mayan Astrology**it’s 12 Chicchan also known as Snake. This is a day of transformation.
Gardening: Moon in Scorpio: 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.
