The week begins as Moon shifts into the third tithi (phase) of the waxing bright half, called Tritiya. Lord Vishnu rules this phase of the Moon and invites us to align with dharma, right action and that which sustains our soul's purpose, our highest truth. Saturn has just landed in Mula nakshatra and Sagittarius for the majority of 2017, causing adharma (that which is against dharma) as well as increased chaos, calamity and uncertainty. This is a time of great unmasking, a powerful opportunity for awakening from the illusions and shadows that keep you in the dark. Don't play small. Rise to the occasion! Stay close to your body and breath. Read more about Saturn in Sagittarius.
This week, Mercury moves to Capricorn and Jupiter will retrograde Changes for the mind and spirit arrive.

Moon in 3rd tithi
Late morning on Monday, Moon shifts to Purvabhadra nakshatra, where Ajaikapada brings preparatory steps for awakening and removing veils of ignorance. There is a poignant one pointed focus with this constellation. A focus and determination to meet the mark, yet often without the action necessary to achieve the goal. This is a preparatory nakshatra, more than an achievement oriented constellation. There is a need for preservation, holding, attending to, and especially pausing in stillness. Today is a day of preparation. Find clarity about your needs and next steps. What action still need to be taken in order for your success, in order for your desired outcome to be achieved? Pause, lean in and listen.
Tuesday, January 31st
Moon in 4th tithi
Just before noon, Moon arrives in UttaraBhadra nakshatra, the domain of Ahirbudhnya, the serpent of the deep, unconscious inner terrain. As a naga (a positive serpent), Ahirbudhnya supports deep dives into your darkness, bringing pearls of wisdom to the surface, to your conscious mind. Moon conjuncts Mars and Venus, receiving direct gaze from Jupiter who is currently at the very edge of Virgo. What are you learning about release and letting go? What emotions are holding you back, keeping you frozen and locked in old patterns and behaviors? Look closely at your feelings, as they lead the way to uncovering parts of yourself that are stuck, resistant or avoiding change.
Wednesday, February 1st
Moon in 5th tithi
Late morning, Moon shifts to the final nakshatra of the zodiac, Revati. This is Pushan's domain, who nourishes and provides resources for long journeys. He protects, guides and helps you align with your right path, so that you can gather the necessary resources and support along the way. Mercury rules this constellation, giving a nod to the mental body, the mind. Working diligently with the mind is vital for being in right relationship with your receptivity, your ability to receive. Where are you denying or resisting more nourishment? What stories are keeping you stuck in lack? If you want to receive the nourishment, you must clear away your resistance to the receiving.
Jupiter is at the very edge of Virgo right now, a poignant place for intensifying the attributes of Virgo and the expression of Jupiter. The 29th degree always increases the impact and effects of the sign and planet placed there. Right now, Jupiter (planet of wisdom and guidance) is intensifying Virgo's need for order, discipline, clarity and focus. Lack of clarity and certainty is challenging and overwhelming. With the chaos being provoked by Saturn in Sagittarius right now, there are ample reasons to feel ungrounded and imbalanced. For now, continue to align with your inner truth. Where do you feel this truth in your body? Listen for messages.
Thursday, February 2nd
Moon in 6th tithi
Early Thursday morning, Moon leaps through the gandanta (the gap) between endings and beginnings- Pisces to Aries. Gandantas are karmic knots that require uprooting and releasing parts of yourself that are stuck, stagnant and need to be released. The three gandantas of the zodiac often bring turmoil and chaos as parts of you are transformed, released and awakening to change. This is an ending and a beginning. What are you leaving behind? What are you opening to? As Moon arrives in Aries, it enters Ashwini nakshatra, a portion of the sky that supports healing and rejuvenation. Attend to self care diligently today. What resources are supporting you? How can you ground, land and establish more inner resiliency?
Friday, February 3rd
Moon in 7th tithi
Mid morning, Moon moves to the second constellation of the zodiac, Bharani. Yama brings his transformation and restraint to this domain of the heavens. He requires clarity, order and simplicity, while also offering immense strength and power. The symbol of this nakshatra is the yoni, suggesting both vulnerability and incredible creative potential, as well as pleasure and vitality. Clarify your desires today, then work backwards. What do you need to do in order to activate and align with your highest power, purpose and potential? What is in the way of your success? Release and let go of anything in your way. Get clear on your action steps and move forward.
Just as Friday begins, Mercury lands in Capricorn at 00:33 MST, joining Sun here. Both receive gaze from Jupiter, which offers a soft landing and increased wisdom during the transit. Mind sharpens, as Mercury leaves the gaze of Rahu. This cycle presents and opportunity for expanding the heart, while also finding strength and clarity with your needs, purpose and inner awareness. Cut away the excess, get laser focused on your needs and desires. Notice where you are allowing yourself to get distracted and sabotage your success. You'll need clear action steps in this cycle in order to maximize the potency and power of it. What needs to be clarified in order for you to succeed? The chaos and overwhelm is a choice. When you decide to get really clear and align with your inner order, you will also find your inner truth. Your only job is to honor this truth arriving and support it with clear, focused actions steps.

Moon in 8th tithi
Mid morning, Moon shifts to Krittika nakshatra, which aligns with Agni, the fire of life. Agni brings cutting, clarifying and purification through burning. There is heat in the process of change and transformation, which supports the alchemy process. Just after noon, Moon shifts into its exaltation sign, Taurus, becoming exalted. Waves of emotion are high, feelings intensify, requesting you to change and transform from the emotional body. Jupiter gives his gaze to the Moon, expanding and swelling the feelings arriving. What are you noticing within your emotional body? What emotions are rising to the surface in order for you to look more closely? What needs to be cleared, transformed and released? Allow the waves to come and let the purge take place. Then find the calm, your grounding on the other side.
Sunday, February 5th
Moon in 9th tithi
Sunday morning, Moon moves to Rohini nakshatra, the powerfully creative star with immense potential for manifestation. Lord Brahma rules this domain of the sky and by default goddess Saraswati is awakened here as well. Both the masculine and feminine principles of creativity, manifestation and inner wisdom, together, god and goddess create the perfect blend of inner potential. From this potential, all possibilities arrive. Align with your Creative Intelligence, your inner spark of Shakti. Allow yourself to shine, be seen and thrive. What are your greatest desires, your most potent potential? What is your soul's truth? Take steps today that help you succeed. What is blocking your immense creative potential? What is keeping you from fully aligning with your purest essence, your life force energy? Why play small, when all possibilities are available and within your reach? All that is standing in your way is you.
Monday, February 6th
Moon in 10th tithi
Moon lands in Mrigashirsha nakshatra just as Monday begins. This is the Moon's constellation, which enlivens Soma, the divine nectar of life. There is growth, ojas and immense creative power available in this portion of the sky. Through extending and expanding your reach, you will find the nourishment, the resources and resilience to thrive, succeed and become deeply nourished. Moon has entered its mulitrikona degrees, which still expresses strength and power from the emotional body. Jupiter expands and increases this feeling level. Where are you playing small and resisting the nourishment of life? What part of you is too afraid to take a powerful leap forward? Look carefully and notice where you are holding yourself back. Reach towards resources that support your full potential, your deepest nourishment.
Just before midnight, Jupiter begins his retrograde motion back through Virgo. Jupiter will be retrograde until June 9th. Retrograde planets increase in strength, intensifying their indications. This transit of Jupiter through Virgo, is provoking the need for clarity, certainty, purpose and alignment with your highest ideals. There is a certain naivety and innocence that is available- for better or worse. Read more about Jupiter and Virgo and its impact on your rising sign.
