This Week's Intention: Expand and awaken through your creative power.
Energize and enliven dreams and desires. Seek integration and balance through wisdom, resources and support. Allow yourself to be held.
The Moon begins its journey inward, waning and softening in the coming days. On the heels of the full Moon and lunar eclipse, as well as three major transits, a new week arrives with promises of fresh starts. The eclipse portal has closed, yet integration and digestion of the past many weeks is still simmering. Attend to clean up and endings. A sense of possibility is awakened, while a necessity to attend to malnourishment and places within that don't feel supported, connected or whole still lingers. Ride the waves this week, deepening your inner journey. What do you truly need for more integration and balance- in self and relationships?

Moon 4th tithi
Moon continues to transit Aries, but shifts to Bharani nakshatra late Monday morning. Rahu shares his powerful desires and intense cravings with the emotional body. The closing of the eclipse portal continues, requesting integration, digestion and assimilation of the past weeks. What challenges have you encountered? What resources have arrived? As Moon moves to Bharani nakshatra late morning, Yama brings his transitional energy as he connects to death and release. He needs restraint and simplicity, without elaboration or excess. His powers enliven the death process- a process of release and ending, as well as opening and beginning. How are you attending to your inner transformation process? What support and holding do you need? What is missing and where do you need more resources and guidance? Change and transformation are awakened right now with three planets having just changed signs in the past three days and Moon beginning a new transit around the zodiac. What are you opening to? What are you closing to?

Moon in 5th tithi
Late morning, Moon moves to Krittika nakshatra, bringing the transformational energy of Agni to the day. The alchemical element of fire is enlivened, supporting digestion, assimilation and deeper nourishment as a result. Precision and cutting happen with this constellation. Simplify and find clarity with your needs. Make choices and take action accordingly. Early afternoon, Moon moves into its sign of exaltation, Taurus, receiving the expansive, nurturing gaze of Jupiter. Emotions swell and feelings intensify. What is working? What is not? Get clear on what you need as you navigate your emotional body with conscious awareness.

Moon in 6th tithi
Mid morning, Moon moves to the creative and potent constellation, Rohini. Lord Brahma and Goddess Saraswati invite manifestation from creative acts and artistic endeavors. It is through your creativity, your artistry, that you bring your desires into manifest form. This is the power you have as a human being, as a creator. What are you creating today? What are you bringing forth into form? What desires need your attention and intention today? Expand your vision.

Moon in 7th to 8th tithi
Saptami to Ashtami
Early morning, Moon shifts into Mrigashirsha nakshatra, the domain of Soma, divine nectar. This life force enhancing nourishment is the drink of the gods, but can be absorbed through direct contact with the Moon, Chandra. There is movement, growth and powerful creativity available with this constellation. Create, thrive, grow. Late afternoon, Moon moves to Gemini, receiving gaze from Mars and Ketu. The emotional body feels heat and agitation, sudden awareness and release. Mental and emotional body needs surface. Stay connected to your inner landscape. What are the needs surfacing?
Fall Equinox happens September 22nd at 08:21 MDT, when day and night are almost equal in length. Sun crosses the celestial equator (the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator), marking the beginning of fall for the Northern Hemisphere and spring for the Southern Hemisphere. It is also a time of polarity shifts and a can be a transition point that sparks change. Outer tendencies become inner, challenges become resources, doors that were closed before may re-open and vice versa. It is a time of regaining some balance and integration with the opposite extreme, but will provoke discomfort as you get used to the shift. Anywhere there's been imbalance in your life, expect a shift in the other direction now. Seek balance and harmony rather than bi-polar extremes.
Mercury goes direct, just as Thursday begins. Still under the gaze of Saturn as he navigates Leo for another 10 days, the mental body is under pressure. Grief, discomfort and resentment may be released from the mind. Once Mercury goes direct in Leo, he won't re-enter Virgo again until October 3rd. As he re-enters his sign of exaltation, he joins Jupiter and Sun as well. At this point, we may finally get the positive effects of an exalted Mercury, with the expansive wisdom of Jupiter and the illumination of the Sun to support the awareness. A strong mind will bring more clarity, purposeful communication and potent resources. For the benefits of exalted Mercury to be felt, it will require patience and strong intentions.

Moon in 9th tithi
Early morning, Moon moves to Ardra nakshatra, Rudra's constellation. Power, force and emotion arrive. How do you use this immense power? Can you use the challenge as a resource? Channel the immense emotion moving through you in a way that propels you forward, supports momentum and intentional change. Awakening is possible through your action steps right now. Stay connected to your choices and heart wisdom. Navigate the inner waves with skill and focus. How do you channel your powerful inner waters in order for change and transformation?

Moon in 10th tithi
Early morning, Moon shifts to Punarvasu nakshatra and the sweetness of Aditi arrives to nourish and support you with her resources and wisdom. Her ability to create wholeness and to unify, will provide some nourishment. Look for the resources arriving to support you. Gratitude is the balm of the heart and a powerful resource for attracting more wholeness. What are you grateful for today? Late evening, Moon moves to its own sign, Cancer, opening the heart even wider. Softly land within your heart wisdom and listen carefully. What messages are arriving? Tend to your needs with intention and surrender.

Moon in 11th tithi
Moon transits Cancer today, moving through Pushya nakshatra. Mars gives his fiery gaze to his least favorite sign, the heart centered, feeling sign of the Moon. Feel what you feel. Anger arrives to help you create clearer boundaries and honor what is working and what is not working. Where have you been saying yes when you should be saying no? Pushya supports deep nourishment on all levels of life, but requires balance and integration with inner and outer needs. Clarity with your needs is a must right now. No excuses! Find balance between your opening and closing, your yes and your no, inner and outer, self and relationships. Get specific about your needs and how to express them from a heart centered place.

Moon in 12th tithi
Moon shifts to Ashlesha nakshatra just after Monday begins. The domain of Sarpa enlivens with depth and mysticism. Awakening is available, if you are willing to attend to your inner darkness and navigate challenging territory within. Growth and wisdom come from leaning into the unknown parts of yourself. What terrifies you, what provokes uncertainty and confusion? What resources and support do you need in order to feel more held and safe with your healing journey? There's an integration and harmony arriving with your mind and emotions. Activate and align with your polarities. Harness the wisdom from both the challenges and the resources that you are confronting.
