The Moon is in Cancer. It makes a positive aspect to Jupiter early afternoon and we feel generous and upbeat. An opposition to Mercury late afternoon means that communications are down. Some people want emotional support, others just want to control. A discordant aspect to Mars early evening could mean an argument. A positive aspect to Venus mid evening softens the atmosphere and we can all have a nice social get together.
Today the Dalai Lama says: As to what you can do to support our culture, I often advise people to go to Tibet and see for yourselves what is happening there. Pay attention to Tibet’s delicate ecology that has been described as a third pole because of its influence on climate and water supplies. So go there, look, observe, and report back.

Gardening: Full Moon in Cancer—plant root crops.
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.
