This Week's Intention: This is an important cycle of self inquiry. Lean towards your challenges, pains, and hardships. There is something profound and important surfacing. Don't resist your awakening-
even though it feels uncomfortable.
We are inside the eclipse portal, which lasts until the solar eclipse on February 26th. This delicate two week period between lunar and solar eclipses requires a softening and leaning in to the emotional body. With Venus exalted right now, feelings are extra strong anyway. What are you noticing about your emotions, needs and beliefs? What stories are keeping you in the dark, in the shadows?
Sun has just shifted to Aquarius as of Sunday the 12th. Sun moves to Aquarius at 07:46 am MST, joining the restructuring planet, Ketu here. This is a healing transit, if you choose to look closely at your challenges, setbacks and obstacles. Resistance to your darkness will provoke more challenges, so best to surrender and lean in. The soul and the ego are going through a transformation in the cycle to come, which lasts until March 14th.

Moon in 3rd tithi
Just as Monday begins, Moon shifts to Virgo, joining retrograde Jupiter here. Mercury and Venus give their direct gaze, while Saturn offers a stern stare from Sagittarius. Plant your seeds and visions, but make sure you back them up with clear action steps. Moon transits Uttaraphalguni the majority of the day. Sun and the ancestors require your focus and attention. Relationships and channeling your creative life force energy effectively, will appease the ancestral spirits. Don't lose sight of your goals, visions and highest purpose. Late evening, Moon shifts to Hasta. The light is dawning and Savitr arrives to support you. Face your shadows so the light can emerge.

Moon in 4th tithi
Moon continues through Virgo and Hasta nakshatra today, enlivening Savitr, who brings the dawn. Light is coming, shining on your darkness and shadows. This can be a painful process, but don't push it away. Pay attention to what is illuminated, what needs to be honored and addressed. It's time to face the parts of yourself that keep shining down, instead of shining up. It's time to take a radical look at how you negate your power, purpose and needs. Stop playing small, start stepping up. What needs to change in order for you to awaken your full potential and your desires?
Today is Valentine's day for many. Honor yourself with self care, self love, self compassion and loving kindness. Spread the love.

Moon in 5th tithi
Moon arrives in Chitra nakshatra, and conjuncts retrograde Jupiter exactly. Precision, focus and extreme attention to detail arrives. Channel this effectively so the critic doesn't get out of control. Saturn, Venus and Mars give their exact gaze, intensifying the feelings of imperfection. Notice how this story keeps you from taking empowered action, trusting your steps and keeping yourself on track. Moon shifts to Libra midday, and Mars continues to give drishti to the Moon. Get honest about the shadow work that is necessary in order to clear the old disempowering mental thought patterns and stories. Where are you stuck and losing motivation? Where are you confused and misaligned with your intentions? What is the story connected to this? Use my Tapping Meditation to step into your power more fully.

Moon in 6th tithi
Just as Thursday begins, Moon arrives in Swati nakshatra, Rudra's domain. The wind god is associated with movement, swift change and momentum. Some will feel the power of change in positive ways, others will feel the sting of negative change. This is dependent upon your orientation to challenges and resources. During this eclipse portal, it is particularly important to look closely at your emotional body and the feelings surfacing. If you're not being fully honest with yourself, honest about all the emotions you've been stuffing into the dark corners of your being, you'll be facing them more acutely right now. Remember that your shadows are opportunities to create more light, but not without the necessary work it requires to transform darkness into light.

Moon in 7th tithi
Moon continues through Swati nakshatra until late afternoon. Ketu gives his restructuring gaze. Something is changing. Ride the waves of momentum and change. What are you creating? What is compelling you to move and transform? What action steps need to take place today- in order for you to activate and align with your goals? As Moon moves to Vishaka late afternoon, alliances and connections become more important. Reach out and ask for support, guidance and new resources. You can't succeed alone.
Saturday, February 19th
Moon in 8th tithi
Just as Saturday begins, Moon moves into Scorpio, its debilitation sign. Energy is moving slowly and requires your inward attention. Pause, check, notice. What emotions are surfacing right now? Pay close attention to the needs arriving. What you feel and what you need are intimately connected. As Moon continues through Vishaka until mid morning, resources, support, alliances and guidance become nonnegotiable. Reach out and ask for help. This is especially important as Moon moves into Anuradha nakshatra next. The capacity to which you ask for support and make connections, will determine your success and nourishment in the coming days and weeks. Where are you self isolating and pushing away the very things you need? Reach out to friends if you need a mirror. Ask them for a reminder of what needs to shift. Important transformation is taking place, allow yourself to unfold.
Sunday, February 20th
Moon in 9th tithi
The week ends at a still point. Make it a priority to land, pause and listen to your inner landscape. Lean closer to emotions and inner challenges. You need new resources, support and guidance. What is missing? What is working? What needs to change? Late morning, Moon moves to Jyeshtha nakshatra, Indra's domain. There is strength and power available today- especially with the mental body. This potency needs to be directed properly or it will be all-consuming. Clean up the mind, the stories, perceptions and unconscious mental body shadows that are keeping you stuck, unsuccessful and disconnected from your power and purpose. Use this Tapping Meditation to get clarity and step into your power more fully.
Monday, February 21st
Moon in 10th tithi
The mind continues to strengthen today. Channel this power effectively or it will over-power you. Get clear on stories, illusions, perceptions and parts of your personal mythology that are keeping you stuck, in lack and unproductive. After noon, Moon leaps into the gandanta between Scorpio and Sagittarius, landing in Mula nakshatra, and in conjunction with Saturn. Rahu gives his gaze. There's a compression, a tightening and an overwhelm that arrives. This increases the chaos and uncertainty within. Notice how the chaos derails you, keeps you from taking effective, empowered action. Stay out of the mud and land closer to your body wisdom, your inner truth. Gather support, guidance, resources in order to help you strengthen your own inner wisdom. Don't succumb to the chaos, use it, channel it, harness that power in order to build momentum.
* All timing used is Mountain Standard Time.
When your voice isn't heard, when your gifts are never shared, when your power is never fully activated....where does your soul's purpose go?
What happens when your dharma is never offered to this world? When it is never fully awakened within you? When you refuse to change, heal and transform, so that you can rise and shine? When you never even step onto your dharmic path!
This is called Adharma (that which is against dharma). It is the root cause of all suffering in this world. It is pain that is self-induced. Don't neglect your path. Don't avoid your inner wisdom. Don't negate your power, purpose and passion.
