Crack open judgments and resistance to nourishment. Simplify.
The week begins with a fresh start as Moon arrives into the first sign of the zodiac, Aries.
Monday, allow the vulnerability of beginnings settle in as you move through your day. There's a freshness, a vitality, an awakening and enlivening occurring. Calculate your steps and be poignant in your choices. Attend to rejuvenation and revitalization. Awaken and refresh yourself with new actions. Declare your inner power and orient yourself around this core of truth within. Mars gives his gaze to the Moon today. Take the passion into action. If you are feeling anger stir, notice where you need to create healthier boundaries. What does your anger need? Lean in and listen carefully.
Late evening, Moon shifts to Bharani nakshatra. Vulnerability and ferocity arrive simultaneously. Where do you land?
Moon continues to transit Bharani nakshtara on Tuesday. Yama brings his transformational energy and invites in deep changes. Relationships and money are vulnerable right now and today amplifies this fragility. What are the challenges forcing you to look at? What are you resisting or refusing to see? What is your anger telling you about your needs? Let the passion out of its hiding place and invite it to stoke your inner flames. Get clear on what you need for deeper nourishment. Ask for your needs to be met.
Early evening, Moon arrives in the 15th tithi, Purnima, and Krittika nakshatra. The fullness is here. Can you feel the swell within?
Just as Wednesday begins, Moon hops into Taurus, rendering him exalted and 100% energized. Continuing through Krittika nakshatra still, Agni arrives with his purifying potency to help us clean, clear and purify.
Full Moon is Wednesday November 25th at 14:43 PST while Moon is in Taurus and Krittika Nakshatra. Moon is in its Mulitrikona degrees at the time of the full Moon. This placement exemplifies the feeling nature of the Moon and can increase emotions and stronger emotional body experiences as a result. Moon also receives gaze from four planets- Sun, Saturn and Mercury, all in Scorpio. Rahu also gives his shadowed gaze from Virgo. Venus gives its influence as ruling planet of Taurus. A range of offerings arrive with this motley mix of energy upon the Moon. As Moon is highly receptive, it feels the ripples of these other planetary energies very acutely. There's a certain contraction and sadness that arrives, though likely connected to the mental body and old stories re-emerging to taunt and haunt. Simultaneously a powerful inner force and courageous spirit is present, which may help support movement, momentum and change. Rahu brings a sense of confusion, uncertainty and challenge with his gaze, while influencing relationships and our experience with others. How can you keep landing in your body and align with your core? What are the essential values that you hold dear? Use them as a tuning fork.
Agni, the ruling deity of Krittika nakshatra, is a powerful transformational energy. He brings change and alchemy with him. His fire brings new results and helps us release the old. There is certain movement and momentum given with the energy of Agni. He is a powerful resource for digestion, assimilation and deep nourishment of life. In the waning cycle to come, digestion is a crucial and potent area of focus. Attending to the fire of life- on all four levels of our being- is essential. Are you attending to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies with intention? Where are there holes in your self care?
Agni can help us digest and assimilate experiences of life, in order for us to extract the finest by-product of well being, which is ojas. If any system of the body is overwhelmed, over loaded, it will not be able to support assimilation of nutrients. Stoking the wisdom of Agni with gentle intention, attending to a slow, consistent flame, is the most sustainable. When we douse this fragile inner flame with too much of anything, our pilot light goes out. Agni exists on multiple levels of our being to help us digest mentally, emotionally, physically and even spiritually.
Use this cycle to attend to your inner light with deep care. Go slow, pause, turn inward and align with your needs. Attend to self care diligently and get plenty of rest. Let rejuvenation be a primary focus as the light dims for the Northern Hemisphere and the winter months ask us to retreat within. Put maximum attention on inner nourishment. Pay attention to what goes into your body and what comes out of it. Watch your words and clean up your diet and the company you keep. Where are you perpetuating over-stimulation, over activity? Where are you not in right relationship with your needs, healthy boundaries and self care?
Fresh starts abound in this cycle so pay close attention to what you are actually putting into motion and beginning. Are you really making progress with new steps and extra support, guidance and resources? Or are you pretending to make change using old patterns and unconscious actions? It is vital that the changes begin from your depths, below the surface and through inner work. The awareness you gain from self development work and shining the light on your darkness, will maximize and mobilize you into powerful actions with lasting effects. Work directly with the mental body and its limiting beliefs, old patterns and default settings. Closely track old stories and mental body programming that consistently keep you in the dark. Not sure where these old patterns are hiding? Look directly at your obstacles and challenges. What keeps returning to force you into conscious awareness?
Late afternoon, Moon shifts to Rohini nakshatra and creativity is maximized. Put your attention on manifestation and desire.
Thursday Moon continues through Lord Brahmas domain, Rohini nakshatra. His unification with Goddess Saraswati is the ultimate manifestation energy. Masculine and feminine creative powers align in order to bring desire into form. Through creativity, the arts, wisdom and knowledge, we can create our lives over and over again. Desire sparks actions and intentions. What resources are you using to create an inspired and potent life? Where are you playing small, resisting and refusing to stand in your power? We create our own reality. What are you inviting in?
Late afternoon, Moon moves to Mrigashirsha nakshatra and life force energy arrives to nourish and support. Notice where you are contracting and refusing the love. Notice where you are overindulging in intoxicants, masking your inner needs.
In the USA, today is Thanksgiving- a day for celebrating gratitude, blessings and the rich harvest of life. What nourishment are you celebrating? What are you inviting into your life? Where are you resisting? Keep it simple today and avoid heart burn. The basic human resource we all need is love. How can you keep your feelings attuned to loving kindness, rather than falling into pot holes of emptiness?
Friday, day of Venus, brings more awareness of relationships, love and nourishment. Though creativity is a primary focus, the channels are also very narrow right now. Love and money are not flowing smoothly and can feel restricted or forced at times. The challenging flow of Venus energy extends to relationships, commodities, vitality and life force energy (shakti). The tendency is to overindulge- with intoxicants, sweets, drugs and alcohol- masking the inner needs and the vulnerability of this time. This burns the little life force energy that is available. Today can offer Soma or burn it up. Do you align with your sensitivity and its inner pulls, or follow the externalized forces and desires?
Early afternoon, Moon shifts to the challenging and powerful nakshatra, Ardra. Emotional upheavals are amplified as Moon is waning yet still quite full. Grieve, purge tears, let waves pass through you and let them release. Dissect anger and rage, finding its root cause. What boundaries are being crossed that need to be restructured? Where are you saying yes when you should be saying no? Rudra's destructive forces are potent today and tomorrow. What is crumbling in order for you to rebuild?
Saturday Moon continues through Ardra nakshatra until noon. Relationships are fragile and require extra attention today. The challenges of the previous day begin to sift and settle, while emotions continue to fester. Attend to self care, sensitivity and inner needs. Find healthy ways to release and reset.
As Moon shifts into Punarvasu nakshatra midday, a softening arrives with Aditi's many resources. Her gentle wisdom and unifying ways can be a soothing balm to the heart. Protection, support and guidance comes more easily now. Can you land back in your heart and find the gratitude? Stand in your power by attending to the heart flame. Let it be the messenger of your truth and light. Fill the corners of your heart with joy and understanding.
Venus nears the edge of its debilitation sign, Virgo, intensifying its challenging effects. When sandhi, a planet is both vulnerable and more potent- especially when it is leaving a sign. Spiritual resources may feel more available now to support relationship and money concerns. Call in your support systems! Gurus, guides, ancestors and spirits! Ask for tangible support from healers, therapists, coaches and nourishing relationships. Where do you need more support?
Sunday mid morning, Moon shifts to its own sign, Cancer, softening the heart and increasing a sense of emotional body balance. Spiritual awareness may help increase new understanding and deeper compassion. Sudden emotional shifts are likely and sensitivity is high. Protect yourself and find ways to land within consciously.
Just after noon, Moon moves to Brihaspati's nakshatra, Pushya. Nourishment comes with balance and healthy boundaries today. Inner and outer needs must be integrated and harmonized. Have you been neglecting your internal fire and self care? Use your heart to calibrate your needs and choices. Keep landing back in your heart wisdom, your emotional body and listen carefully. There is depth and awakening available to those who listen today.
At 17:56 PST, Venus makes the leap into its own sign, leaving the challenges of its debilitation behind. Many will feel the relief arriving in the coming days as relationships, money, creativity, life force and health find more stability and harmony. There is still much in the transits that can challenge this stability, but the natural flowing tendencies of Venus in its own sign can help us increase fluidity, love and joy. This increase of vitality is determined by your inner work. It's a time to be radical in your self development, not hide behind false comforts and illusions of safety.
This Venus cycle is all about creativity and connectivity, helping us find new pathways of nourishment and vitality, potency and power. It will require radical heart chakra work and re-patterning blockages, resistance and refusal to be nourished. Attending to your malnourishment is vital. Where are you starving yourself? Filling up on empty calories in your life? Pretending and wearing old masks?
Use challenges and obstacles to face your shadow. Where are you being cracked open so more light can enter? How is your critic keeping you in the dark? Where are you stuck in binary thinking patterns- right and wrong, and a black and white mentality? Unmask yourself and remove the false layers keeping you from being nourished and well fed in life and relationships. Heal and awaken with extra guidance and support. Don't try to move forward alone.
Relationships are vital at this time- in order to deepen your support systems, sense of community and strengthen your belonging. Find new resources of support if you are stuck or in challenge. The heart needs your attention like never before. Increase compassion for yourself and others. Deepen your awareness about your own needs. As you identify the deeper layers of your inner being, you can express them and gain deeper support from others, from life. Remove and let go of that which is draining you, keeping you from vitality and joy. Simplify your life.
Monday continues themes of balance and harmony as Moon moves through Pushya nakshatra. Venus is weak and vulnerable in degrees so tend to the relationship with self and other cautiously. After noon, Moon shifts to Ashlesha nakshatra and inner illusions amplify. Use resources and tools to work directly with the mental and emotional bodies. Consciously work with shadows and the critical mind. Drop into your heart and notice where you are stuck in judgement and critical thought. Deepen compassion for self and others.
