The Moon begins in Capricorn but travels into Aquarius at 8:22 AM. It makes a positive aspect to Mars in the morning and we have a burst of energy. Friends may take up our time today or community efforts.
Mercury travels into Pisces. Our thoughts may be foggy but our minds may be filled with poetry and spiritual truths.
Mars travels into Sagittarius. We enjoy travel and spending time in the great outdoors. Sports are enjoyable too.
The Sun squares Saturn. People can become too sensitive and grow despondent. Let’s use this energy for organizational projects, instead.
Today the Dalai Lama* says: I consider prayer to be of great psychological benefit. But we must accept that tangible benefits are very hard to see. When it comes to obtaining certain direct results, it is clear that prayer cannot match the achievements of modern science.
In Mayan Astrology**it’s 5 Oc, also known as Dog. Let’s work on father-related authority issues.
Gardening: Moon in Aquarius—plan a community 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.
