The December New Moon arrives on Wednesday, the 28th at 23:54 MST, just after Venus shifts to Aquarius. Mars has barely moved to the other side of Ketu at this time, narrowly breaking the many months of upheaval caused by the Kala Sarpa yoga effects. Sun has also just moved out of the chaotic and challenging lunar constellation, Mula, and into the watery PurvaAshada nakshatra. Hasta nakshatra is on the Eastern horizon at the exact time of the new Moon, encouraging a dawning through all of these transformations and changes. Indeed, there may be a feeling of fresh starts and a renewed hope and optimism. Endings, release and purging the past are part of this new Moon. Channel these feelings into supportive actions and new beginnings.
Moon is in Purvashada nakshatra and Sagittarius at the time of the new Moon. This constellation is ruled by Apas, the water goddess, and is considered fierce- supporting harsh actions, choices and decisions. Venus rules this portion of the sky, which aligns with relationships, creativity, the feminine and life force energy. Since Apas is the ruling deity, the inner waters, health and vitality are a powerful part of this star's expression. Movement arrives, through flowing, fluidity and waves. This can be gentle or severe. What is your relationship with your inner waters? With the water ways of life? Symbolized by the tusk of an elephant, there is a connection with overcoming obstacles within this constellation, while finding triumph- as with the support of Lord Ganesha, the remover of great difficulties on the path to enlightenemnt.
Use the coming weeks to transform challenges into resources, pain into healing, darkness into light. Allow yourself to be washed clean. Purify, awaken, seek transformation and renewal through the emotional body. Spend ample time in water, near water, surrended by water. Detox gently, supporting release and letting go, while using your inner waters as a resource for this process. Allow your inner waters to wash your heart clean- which will be supported through tears and purging emotions. Clear and organize your home space, the outer temple. Bring more sattva (purity) to your environment. Allow Spirit to be a resource for gathering clarity, wisdom and support while setting intentions for your health, life and soul's purpose for the coming months and year.
Some may feel overly optimistic and miss the mark- becoming lackadaisical. Though there will be more support for your efforts, don't get lazy or over confident. Diligence, consistency and clear intention are required to move forward and find success at this time. With the close of the Kala Sarpa Yoga impacts arriving, expect a sudden shift, change or transformation with the themes of the past four plus months. A closure and release is possible, albeit through sudden and unexpected occurances. Be cautious, steady and patient. Use your emotions as a resource for healing, not causing more pain to yourself and others. Allowing their release is necessary, even vital, so don't suppress feelings, your inner waters.
Go slow, be gentle with yourselves and others. Relationships are a powerful source of healing in the cycle ahead- especially the relationship with yourself. Love yourself enough to tenderly care for your inner and outer needs through respect, clarity and intention. Learn through being. Treat yourself with tender loving care and let this be your new baseline from which you act. Align with your highest ideals and move towards your desires. There is a call to action at this time. Stay true to course!
