The Moon is in Libra and it makes a sextile to Saturn in the late morning and we have some energy to do some organizing and tedious paper work. The Moon makes a discordant aspect to Mercury mid-afternoon. Communications may get snarled. The Libra Lunar energy wants equality while Capricorn Mercury wants control. A discordant aspect to Pluto around the same time means that some of us will try to be intimidating. This is especially true because Mercury makes a conjunction to Pluto today. A square to Uranus early evening brings in the unexpected to test our balance and equanimity.
Today the Dalai Lama* says: Followers of all spiritual traditions try in their own ways to overcome the sufferings that afflict all beings in the world and bring about their happiness. However it would be better if we worked together to fulfill such aspirations.

Gardening: Moon in Libra—plant flowers
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.
