This Week's Intention: Move powerfully towards your desires. Expand what you believe is possible for yourself. Linger in the expansive moments and watch yourself rise.
The week begins with a full Moon, Mars newly shifting to Scorpio and a wave of intense feelings. How do you let these emotions move through you? The Mars and Saturn conjunction in Scorpio will demand a closer look at your emotional body in the coming months. Start now. As the Moon wanes this week, move towards your inner landscape with deeper introspection. Look and listen.

Moon in 15th (Purnima) and 1st tithi
Moon continues through Leo and Magha nakshatra, igniting a new sense of purpose and power. The full Moon today amplifies this sense of strength and inner light. Full Moon is at 10:18 am PST while Moon is in Leo and Magha nakshatra. Moon is conjunct Rahu and retrograde Jupiter, provoking a necessary awareness about strength, power and the masculine. The Moon acts like a magnifying glass as it comes into contact with other planets. The dance of Jupiter and Rahu is creating a deeper integration of light and dark forces. The Moon will show you where you need to look closer. What is supportive? What is not? Where do you need to make some adjustments with the use of your power?
As evening arrives, Moon switches to the second nakshatra of Leo, Purvaphalguni. Relationships come to the forefront. What desires do you have for deeper connection? Ask ruling deity, Bhaga, for support with creating more clarity, comfort and wisdom within your relationships. What connections do you need to thrive?
Last Friday, Sun shifted to the often challenging nakshatra, Satabisha, where he will be until March 3rd. Be diligent with health and healing matters right now. Work carefully on boundaries- opening and closing mindfully and with intention. Life may feel a bit harsher in the days to come as a result. Lean into these challenges and use them for awakening and softening. What do you need for greater wholeness?

Moon in 2nd tithi
Moon continues through Purvaphalguni nakshatra with ruling deity Bhaga sparking creativity, love and fertility. The Phalguni stars bring a sense of spring, opulence and abundance with them. Resources and resiliency arrive to expand and awaken potential and possibility. What desires do you have for growth and awakening? What does your heart truly desire and long for? Who and what do you need in your life to support this process of growth and expansion? Use your creative resources and energy to activate these longings. You can create what you want your life to be. Connect, create, collaborate. Moon is under heavy influences of Rahu, Jupiter, Sun, Ketu and Saturn until Wednesday. Find ways to diligently expand and contract with these energies. Open and close with the rhythms of your heart and emotions.
Moon shifts to the latter half of the Phalguni stars, Uttaraphalguni, late evening. Aryaman supports sustainability and lasting results where Bhaga leaves off. In order to fully activate your desires, you must gather the necessary resources to support this process. Follow through, structured action steps and clarity are pre-requisites. Where do you need to step forward and take action in order for lasting results? What needs to be let go of and released in order to create space for these new fruits to arrive?

Moon in 3rd tithi
In the wee hours of the morning, Moon shifts to Virgo, leaving the gaze of multiple planets. Some new lightness, ease and possibility may arrive as a result. Find ways to expand your creative impulses in the coming days. Let the imaginal be a resource for awakening possibility. Aryaman's supportive ways continue until late in the evening. Harvest form his insights, his support for lasting results. What do you need for sustainability to take place? For balance and ease? Seek healing resources.
Just before midnight, Moon moves to Hasta nakshatra and a new opportunity for awakening takes place. Ruling deity Savitr brings the light, awakening, the dawn. What is rising within you?

Moon in 4th tithi
Moon continues through Hasta nakshatra today with Savitr's support bringing more potent inner light and wisdom. Can you sense the resources arriving? Is some new clarity being offered? Let him lead the way and help you awaken to your inner knowing. Where have you been neglecting deeper nourishment and support? How can you move closer to your inner light source, the part of you that knows truth- without a shadow of a doubt. Step towards this knowing. Listen carefully to your emotional body as the feelings arriving have vital messages for you. Use the Gayatri Mantra for extra support.
Friday, February 26th
Moon in 4th to 5th tithi
Early Friday morning, Moon moves into Vishva Karma's celestial domain, Chitra. Action and momentum are activated. Take necessary steps to move towards your vision and awaken your intentions. Get clear on what actions must be taken in order to enliven your purpose and power. What burdens are in your way, hindering you from fully stepping into your freedom, your creativity? Clear the rubble out of your heart and emotional body so that you have more liberation to expand and open. Imagine something bigger for yourself and your life.
Late afternoon, Moon arrives in Libra, receiving gaze from Ketu now. The cutting and clearing tendencies of Ketu can support the change process. Release, let go, transform.
Saturday, February 27th
Moon in 5th tithi
Mid morning, Moon shifts to Swati nakshatra, Vayu's domain. The wind god supports swift movement, momentum and change. What are you moving towards? What are you moving away from? How can your creative powers help you get there? Connect, build alliances and ask for the support you need in order for growth. Don't try to work alone. Where do you feel restricted? Where do you feel the opening is possible? Essentially, how you use your power will determine your results. Maximize your efforts.
Sunday, February 28th
Moon in 6th tithi
Late morning, Moon moves to Vishaka nakshatra, inviting in the dual support of Indra and Agni. These powerful allies come as a reminder that nothing in life is done alone. Everything is gained as a result of having support and resources from others. Who and what is on your team of support? Where are their holes that must be filled for greater expansion? Where are you resisting the support you need for ultimate thriving? What would that look like? Feel like? Retrace old steps for new resources.
Monday, February 29th
Moon in 7th tithi
Early morning, Moon enters Scorpio, joining Mars and Saturn here. The week begins with a lurch. Are you opening or closing? Arriving or leaving? Late morning, Moon shifts to Anuradha nakshatra and Mitra's creative resourcing arrives. There is passion stirring within you. Can you feel it? Are you suppressing these big waves of feelings or allowing them to roll through you? Find the anger and look for the passion. Notice where you are resisting the emotional body wisdom moving within you.
With Mars now in Anuradha nakshatra as well, Mitra's energetic support activates friendships and deeper relationships. If there are challenges emerging, remember that this is an opportunity for you to notice what is not working and awaken new pathways. What needs to be destroyed in order for you to create deeper nourishment within your relationships? This includes the relationship with yourself.
