Stop worrying about things you can't change. Mercury's abrasive, 45-degree skirmish with Uranus last night has morphed into Mercury moving 180-degrees to down-to-earth, physical-dimension ruler Saturn this morning (1:36AM). This Mercury-Saturn opposition has the capacity to set up temporary barriers to peace and harmony in primary partnerships. Use logic and common sense to enhance relationships in order to avoid doubt and pessimism from taking hold. Spiritual studies are highlighted later on when the Moon in Scorpio trines imagination-maestro Neptune in Pisces (1:04PM).

All of this leads up to one of the year's special Full Moons (8:43PM at 14 degrees of Taurus and Scorpio) - known as the Buddha Full Moon in the West and the Wesak Festival in the East. It is said that the Buddha returns from his high place in the divine hierarchy to bless the faithful and that there is a valley in the Himalayas where aspirants and disciples gather -- along with other illustrious beings in our Earth's evolutionary path -- to meet with the Buddha and his grand aura of light and wisdom.

Individual and group meditations are always recommended in and around the exact time of the Full Moon. Send out your healing thoughts and prayers to humanity and the kingdoms of nature. Gather your wits later this evening as two celestial adversaries -- conservative Saturn and revolutionary Uranus -- connect via a potentially stormy, 135-degree aspect (11:13PM). Become a minimalist overnight to steer clear of creating unnecessary problems based on your own impatience or lack of mental clarity.
