The second full Moon of March occurs on the 31st at 06:36 am MT while Moon transits sidereal Virgo and Hasta nakshatra. Earthy, female Virgo brings a Mercurial nature to this coming cycle. Ruling planet of Virgo is Mercury, which correlates to the mental body. Mercury is currently retrograde in his debilitation sign of Pisces, rendering him nica bangha, which gives a reversal of the debilitation. This strengthens the expression of Mercury until April 15th when he goes direct. Savitr rules the domain of Hasta, providing awakening, new light and awareness.
In the coming waning cycle, the mental body is key. Honor the mind and support it with release and resources. Endings, letting go and finales are occurring. What old stories and personal mythology are you prepared to let go of? Forge a new path and awaken new possibilities. Relationships are key in this cycle. Notice how your relationships make you feel. Are you nourished and supported? Are you honored and acknowledged? Do you feel supported and resourced, or depleted and disconnected?
Grief and trauma may be activated through the emotional body. What stories and experiences are returning for you to reevaluate, acknowledge, clear and release? Be mindful of communication with the masculine and authority in the coming days. There may be anger, uncertainty, confusion and old stories returning. What needs to be reevaluated? What clean up needs to take place? Finances and relationships are going through a purification and rejuvenation process.
There is a tight conjunction of Mars and Saturn happening right now in Sagittarius. These opposing planets move into exact conjunction in the coming days, until Mars passes over Saturn and moves to the other side of him early next week. Mars is action oriented and acts very young and aggressive. Saturn is very slow and requires patience and stability. Mars is go, Saturn is stop. This conjunction causes frustration and stops and starts. There may be anger or aggression, or in inability to be decisive- depending on how these planets impact you natally.
You may also be making poor choices rooted in fear. Be mindful of how your fear (conscious or unconscious) might be impacting your choices. This combination can increase challenges with fear and an inability to make choices that align with dharma, right action. Is there resistance showing up?
Look to see where Sagittarius is in your Jyotish chart. What house is effected by this frustration and fear? Themes arriving have to do with dharma, right action, purpose, clarifying goals and moving towards them, spiritual beliefs and needs, teachers, thighs, life path, aim and direction.
The waning cycle may bring fear, frustrations and challenges with your gifts and offerings. These emotions are asking you to pay attention, lean in and honor your needs and feelings. Clarify your dharmic path, your purpose and your gifts. Purify and organize your actions and be diligent with your choices. Get focused!
Savitr brings the light in the coming days! He is the god of dawn, new light and awakening. He supports your inner awakening and brilliance. Increase your light, your wisdom and your inner Sun. The light is getting brighter. Flip the switch! Use resources to support your awakening. Clean up your diet, your gut intelligence and awaken the gifts in your hands. Heal and be healed. Ask for support and guidance in order for increased awareness and wisdom. Recite the Gayatri mantra to support the awakening of Savitr within. What is dawning within you and your life right now? How are you supporting the light within? How are you resisting it?
To connect with Savitr, to awaken the magic in the hands, to bring forth the dawning and consciousness expansion, recite Gayatri Mantra.
Oṃ bhūr bhuvaḥ svaḥ
tát savitúr váreṇ(i)yaṃ
bhárgo devásya dhīmahi
dhíyo yó naḥ pracodáyāt
The hands allow us to create, to put into action our imagination and ideas. Arms and hands reach, hold, grab, punch, push and give us a way to build and destroy, hold on or let go. We express our desire to give and take, take in and release with this body part. They are extensions of our emotions and can help us communicate feelings. The hands correlate to the third house of the jyotish chart.
"We often enact our feelings of love, caring and tenderness with our arms and hands. We most often use our arms and hands to connect with others. Arms and hands are the most socially accepted way to make contact in most cultures. Arms and hands reach out to express longing and desire." - Daria Halprin, The Expressive Body in Life, Art and Therapy
1) Movement Exploration.
Begin your dance with your fingertips. Enter the body through the tips of your fingers. Bring movement into the fingers, into the palms, wrists, elbows and shoulders. Notice the articulations, undulations, opens and closes of these body parts. Extend and reach. Fold and contract. Make a fist, then open this tightness and feel the contrast. See if your breath can mirror the open and close of the hands. Track sensations arriving in the hands. Continue your exploration until your dance feels complete.
As you pause. Notice if any words or phrases are emerging. Repeat this phrase allowed three times.
2) Create an Image:
Come to your drawing pad. Outline your hands. Make a hand collage of multiple outlines or even just one hand print. When your hand collage feels complete, answer these questions:
I am, I want, I need
What are you holding?
What are you releasing?
What are you grabbing?
What are you pushing?
What are you punching?
What are you poking and prodding?
