The June full Moon arrives on Friday the 9th at 07:09 am Mountain time, while Moon is transiting sidereal Scorpio, Indra's domain, Jyestha nakshatra. The waning cycle to come ushers in storms and battles within the mental and emotional bodies. Deep transformation and upheaval are taking place within the psyche and soul. How are you working with this inner change process?
Jyestha nakshatra is ruled by Indra, king of the devas (gods). A thunderbolt is his weapon of choice, as he rules the release of rain and opens the flood gates within the clouds. As the king of the gods, he is always in powerful alignment with dharma and right action. On a physical body level, he rules prana, life force energy. Using your life force energy in skillful ways, channeling it properly, is also dharmic. Sensory control and not succumbing to over stimulation is important as Jyeshta increases sensitivity on multiple levels of the bodies. Indra performs the battles for Rudra, the storm god, so conflicts are often synonymous with Indra and this constellation. You may notice a battle between emotional and mental bodies, good thoughts and bad thoughts, self and others, inner and outer. Conflicts occur within the dynamics of polarities.
This waning Moon cycle ahead is a reminder to attend to duality with mindfulness and skill. Anger and aggression can emerge, causing tension, transformation and creative force. Slow down, find steadiness and grounding. Don't push or force your self or relationships. Get clear on your boundaries and needs. Are you pushing past a need? An inner boundary? Anger is often a result of not staying true to either a need or a boundary. It's time to clarify and strengthen desires and intentions.
Rudra, the storm god, brings his ferocity this month as multiple planets march through this challenging and powerful constellation. Mars sits in Gemini on the ascendant at the time of the Full Moon- bringing duality, pluralism and the potential for opposing forces to merge and create new forms. Transformation is required in the coming weeks and throughout the month. Do you surrender to this change process or fight against it?
Relationships are at the root of the storm. Upheaval and storms bring the awakening and potential for new growth. Look for needs showing up that you may have missed previously. What are you noticing are the essential ingredients for your safety, stability, grounding and integration? This coming cycle doesn't bring the stability you seek, however as uprooting arrives and your ungrounded needs rise to the surface, it can help you derive some clarity moving forward. First we must identify what is not working, in order to harvest what we do need moving forward.
Seek inner transformation. Confront inner conflicts and bad habits that keep you stuck in perpetual battle with yourself and others. There is an extraction process taking place, however for many this will be through "beating you into submission" until the messages and clarity come. Do you really want to keep suffering? How much more struggle do you need?
Listen for messages and clarity that give insights about relationship needs- both with yourself and others. Dig deeply into your heart and get your facts straight. What is awakening in your emotional body? What does this share with you about your needs for clarity, certainty and and comfort? The wisdom you are seeking comes through cracking open. Be willing to release, shed, destroy, create, transform and break free of your old illusions.
Just after the full Moon, Jupiter goes direct in Virgo at 07: 53 am Mountain time. The guru, teacher and guide will now be moving in a forward direction. Virgo is not his favorite sign, and his direct motion will support some ease and pressure that has been building for many months. Retrograde planets intensify the implications of a transit. Healing, creativity, communication and digestion begins to move in a more forward motion now. Read more about this transit.
With the anger and aggression in the atmosphere these days, working with your emotions consciously is essential.
Attend to Your Anger Consciously:
Anger is often a first response emotion. It can become an addiction to feel anger- especially if this is the way you learned how to feel and express.
Anger happens to be the most socially acceptable emotion, so most people default to anger quite easily. Step number one is to get into the habit of checking in with the four levels of your being and do a self audit. This process can help you identify the experiences happening within your inner landscape so you don't disconnect from your body and emotions.
