New Moon is in Libra and Chitra nakshatra on October 19th at 13:12 Mountain time. In the midst of Diwali, the Vedic Celebration of lights, the darkness comes to the light. Diwali lasts from October 15th to 21st, ushering in new awareness, abundance and resources. It is a time of honoring goddess Lakshmi's nourishing life force energy. Though we may not feel the abundance at this time, it is a powerful seed planting time. Let your intentions and desires be known. Uncover the shadow and illusions that are keeping you in the dark.

Sun is now debilitated in Libra. It is the lowest point of the year for our light source. The light of the soul is dim and the attention turns inward towards your spiritual and physical body needs. Venus is also debilitated as it transits Virgo. Life force energy is weak and requires gentleness with health, vitality, nourishment and love matters. What are you noticing right now? How are you honoring this vulnerability?
This is a cycle of finding and restoring a sense of balance and equilibrium. Attend to the spine as a resource for increasing your relationship with support and stability. Lean into business matters and the work directly with the marketplace. Create, sell, offer and hone your gifts. What do you have to share with the world? Cultivate relationships carefully at this time. There is support, but it is vulnerable. Get clear and specific about what you need and ask for it directly. Find the resources that can hold you, honor you and support your needs. Release and let go of relationships and partnerships that leave you feeling depleted and life less. Why are you settling for less than you deserve?
Let this cycle teach you the art of "less is more" and notice how softening and being gentle with yourself is actually a powerful resource for receiving more nourishment and support. Honor and attend to your inner waters diligently. Spend time near water, in water and use water as a cleansing resources. Sweat, move, dance, and allow your inner waters and emotional body to transform.
Moon in Chitra nakshatra brings the wisdom and support of Vishvakarma and the planet Mars. Action, movement, building, planning and creating are all within his domain. As the celestial architect, he is responsible for creating the blueprint of the stars, bringing it to life through the zodiac. He is an artist, a powerful creator and takes big action steps. Like Brahma he brings ideas and visions into form. As an Aditya, he also provides resources and brings support on the material plane of existence.
What are you creating for yourself? Your life? Your legacy? What action steps are you taking to move you closer to these goals and desires? Get clear on what steps need to happen and start moving in that direction.

How do you know if you are disempowered, disconnected from your inner source?
When your breath is short, body is tight and mind is running the show, you are likely disconnected from your inner wisdom and power.
This may present itself through emotional body reactions, mental stories that seem to be on repeat in your head, and physical body responses that constrict you, leaving you closed off to possibility, options, new choices.

Create an image of what it feels like to be empowered, connected and feeling your inner strength. What colors, textures and images arrive? Using craypas, paints or pencils, create an image of your power. Create an image that expresses this feeling using colors, textures and shapes. Allow 20 minutes at minimum for this nourishment image. Title your image.
Use your image to inspire a movement exploration. Let your body move in response to your image with the intention of "moving with your feelings". What feelings emerge for you during your dance? What awareness? Allow 5 to 10 minutes for this movement exploration. I encourage you to extend this time frame as you recycle this process.
