This Week's Intention: Ride the waves and step into your power more authentically.
Expand what you think is possible for yourself. You deserve empowerment, strength and abundance. Go get it.
It's a full Moon week. The emotional body is filling and tides increase. How are you honoring your feelings and inner waters? An "almost" eclipse occurs with the full Moon this week, kicking off an unusual eclipse portal that will last until September 16th. The emotional body will be especially delicate and your shadow work will require extra attention and focus in the coming weeks. This week there are two transits worthy of mention. Your solar energy and masculine self, Sun, shifts to its own sign, Leo- increasing power and inner strength. Mercury moves to its exaltation sign, Virgo, bringing potent communication to the surface. Enjoy several days of high energy and powerful inner expansion.

Moon in 13th tithi
The first half of the day continues to awaken the wisdom of Apas and PurvaAshada. Break open, break free! Let your inner waters cleanse you. Allow them to move through you and move you. Dance with your emotional body and let it be a resource for touching your inner wisdom. Mid day, Moon shifts to Uttarashada, enlivening the Vishvadevas. These are the Laws of Nature- the rulers of life and order. They require integrity and purpose, truth and righteousness. Ruling planet is Sun, now at the edge of Cancer. Shine as brightly as you can from your heart wisdom. Align and honor the light in your lungs. Be truthful to yourself and your path. Stay true to your purpose. Early evening, Moon moves to Capricorn. Jupiter, Sun and Saturn give their drishti, requesting more balance, stability and support for the emotional body. Clarify your needs for grounding.

Moon in 14th tithi
UttaraAshada continues for the first half of the day as Moon moves through Capricorn. Sun, Jupiter and Saturn's gaze request stability and balance. Jupiter moves into the one degree range today, providing more support from his knowledge and wisdom. More strength is coming. Mid morning, Moon moves to the sacred portal of Abhijit nakshatra, offering mystic and spiritual resources to be enlivened. This gap is open until 14:50. Find ways to honor the sacred. Pause and check. Resource from your spiritual body. As Moon shifts into Sravana, nakshatra, Vishnu is enlivened. He brings dharma through listening, hearing and akashic transmission. Listen closely today for resources that enliven your inner knowing. Step towards your dharma, your truth, your heart wisdom. Venus and Rahu are in exact conjunction today. Be careful with excess and extreme. Honor the feminine in a balanced way as much as possible. Be careful driving, with finances and relationships.
Today, Sun shifts to its own sign, Leo, joining a full house of planets. Venus, Rahu and Mercury are still transiting this fire sign that exudes masculinity and power. Sun is our inner and outer light source. It brings strength, ego, empowerment and a connection to the father with it. Just as Sun moves into its favorite sign, Leo will be on the horizon. This cycle brings an intense relationship with masculine power to the forefront. Your father’s lineage will play a major role in this process in the coming month. What parts of your father are helping you step into your masculinity and power more fully? What parts of your relationship with him and your relationship with his power are effecting your ability for self express?

Moon in 15th tithi
Moon moves to the final phase of its waxing cycle today, Purnima. Sravana and Vishnu's dharmic support continue until midday. Take action towards dharmic pursuits and ask for Vishnu's support with the process. As Moon shifts into Dhanishta, the Vasu Devas bring their bright and brilliant light and a desire to be seen and noticed. The Vasu's bring wealth and abundance on the material plane of existence. Announce yourself to the world, declare yourself. Let your self be seen for your gifts! Put action behind your dharma. Sing, make music and create today. Let your creative spirit play. Both Jupiter and Sun move past the one degree range today, bringing more strength and support with them- especially through the masculine.

Moon in 1st tithi
Just as Thursday arrives, Moon moves to Aquarius, joining Ketu and receiving gaze from multiple planets. Opposite Aquarius is Leo, currently full of energy with four planets transiting it. Sun, Rahu, Venus and Mercury all give their gaze to Moon, as does Mars from Scorpio. The Moon will be feeling the pressure and impact of all this energy. There is an awakening available in the coming days. How will you use the light as you are cracked open? Around noon, Moon shifts to Satabisha nakshatra and Varuna enlivens. As the guardian of Natural Law, he takes his job seriously. When you obey his desire for order, balance and honoring the wisdom of Nature's cycles and rhythms, then he will bless you with healing and good health. Stay balanced and harmonize with your inner wisdom today as a means of prevention.
Full Moon is in the early hours of Thursday morning at 03:27 while moving through Aquarius and Dhanishta nakshatra. An almost lunar eclipse occurs at 03:42, sparking an unusual eclipse portal that will last until the end of September. Sun, Earth, and Moon will be very closely aligned on this day, but there will technically be no lunar eclipse. There are several different ways to calculate eclipses, so some sources are listing this event as a penumbral lunar eclipse, however it is not considered an actual eclipse. In any case, viewers on Earth will not be able to see the Earth's shadow on the Moon. This is an important time of awakening for you and for the planet. It is an opportunity to return to a more balanced and integrated relationship with power and purpose.

Moon in 2nd tithi
Moon continues through Satabisha until late morning, inviting you to honor the need for balance, integration and wholeness this morning. Ruling deity, Varuna, upholds Nature's wisdom and requests you do the same. He is a raja rastra, King of the Kings, and his purpose is to keep things in their natural order. When you go against his desires for order, you will feel the consequences- usually on the level of health. Stay true to your physical body needs today and honor its wisdom for balance. As Moon shifts into Purvabhadrapada, balance becomes more important. Ajaikapada rules this portion of the sky. He is a form of Nataraja, Lord of the Dance, or Shiva. He loves ritual, movement and provides strength as he is a Rudra. He also provides abundance. As one of Vishvakarma's son's, he preserved all the gold in the world. Stay balanced both spiritually and materially today. Honor both realms and integrate your human and spiritual needs.
Mercury moves to its favorite sign today. There will be a moment of strength with mind and body. With Sun and Mercury feeling strong and stable, tasks can be accomplished more directly and progress can be made in a more empowered way. This stability lasts for under a week- before Venus arrives in Virgo. Venus is considered debilitated in Virgo, which will cause challenges and lack to rise to your conscious awareness.

Early morning Moon enters Pisces, the final sign of the zodiac. Endings and release are activated. Mercury and Jupiter offer their gaze from Virgo. Knowledge and mental body come into focus. Expand your mind. Moon moves to the latter half of the Bhadra constellation, Uttarabhadrapada, late morning. As Moon moves into Ahirbudhinya's domain, serpent energy is enlivened. One of Vishvakarma's son's, Ahirbudhnya is also a Rudra, removing calamity and misfortune and can bring resources and nourishment. Dive deep today. Excavate beneath the surface of the mind into your subconscious territory. What are you releasing and letting go of as this new cycle arrives?
Sunday, August 21st

Mid morning, moon arrives in the final nakshatra of the zodiac, Revati. Pushan rules this domain of the sky and brings nourishment and support through resources- especially on journey's and travels through the material realms. As a remover of obstacles, Pushan sends you on your way feeling supported and nurtured with good luck on your side.

Moon in 5th tithi
As Monday begins, Moon finishes its transit through Revati and Pisces. Mid morning, Moon leaps from water into fire, jump starting beginnings and openings. As Moon arrives in Aries and Ashwini nakshatra a fresh start awakens. Ashwini is ruled by Ketu, who cuts attachments and provokes release. Open yourself up to the new by letting go of the past. Allow yourself to step into a fresh start and say yes to a new cycle. What are you opening to? What are you closing to? As Moon wanes this week, the energy shifts inward. Reach inward and gather the wisdom of the past cycle so you can use it for the weeks to come.
All timing is in Mountain Daylight Time. To determine the current nakshatra for your time zone, add or subtract time based on your distance to Mountain Time.
