The December New Moon arrives on Wednesday, the 28th at 23:54 MST, just after Venus shifts to Aquarius. Mars has barely moved to the other side of Ketu at this time, narrowly breaking the many months of upheaval caused by the Kala Sarpa yoga effects. Sun has also just moved out of the chaotic and challenging lunar constellation, Mula, and into the watery PurvaAshada nakshatra. Hasta nakshatra is on the Eastern horizon at the exact time of the new Moon, encouraging a dawning through all of these transformations and changes. .

This Week's Intention: Go slow and turn inward. Find soft landings and moments of joy.
Fill your cup with embodied nourishment and trust your steps.
The week begins with Moon finishing up its transit through Virgo, conjunct debilitated Venus, Mars and shadow planet Rahu. This crowded combination amplifies relationship work as well as money issues. Shadows with commodities and luxuries may surface. Moon is waning and has entered the 14th tithi the final phase before the new Moon or Amavasya.
Diwali is under way and the festival of lights invites us to awaken and increase our inner brightness with the support of Lakshmi and her divine nourishment. With the debilitation of Venus, conjunct Rahu right now, it’s an ideal time to be working with obstacles and challenges connected to money, nourishment and vitality. What is keeping you in the dark? What needs to shift, change and transform in order for deeper support and stability? Transform darkness into light.

Monday continues the action-oriented power of Chitra and Vishvakarma. Ruling planet of Vishvakarma, Mars, may be pushing his agendas with force, anger, agitation and frustrations. Today, Mars and Rahu are in tight conjunction. Extra tenacity, force and strong convictions emerge. Notice where you are holding and resisting, keeping you from surrender. Attend to calculated, steady action steps. Where there is force, there will be frustration or challenge. Go slow and soften your steps today. Attend to physical body and self care attentively. Moon is moving into the final phase of the waning cycle. Turn your gaze inward and attend to your relationship with Self. Moon shifts into Libra late morning, joining debilitated Sun and Mercury here.
Today is the third day in the Diwali celebration and is dedicated to Hanuman, the much loved and revered monkey god. His strength, and devotion to Lord Rama, are honored today. May we each awaken to the compassion, strength and love within us!
Late Monday evening, Moon shifts to Swati Nakshatra, Vayu’s domain. Movement, shifts and changes arrive and winds pick up- inner and outer. What direction do they move you? Or do you stay rooted and grounded within?
Tuesday, Moon continues to move through Swati nakshatra and the wind god, Vayu, invites in sweeping changes. Does he offer you gentle breezes or powerful gusts? Can you stay firmly planted or are you swept away with his powerful and mighty movement? Attend to your inner winds today. Align with prana diligently and attend to its messages. Harness these inner winds and you will maximize your power and vitality. Moon arrives into the 15th tithi, Amavasya, today and moves towards complete emptiness. Mars and Rahu still travel in close conjunction with debilitated Venus in Virgo with them as well. Relationships, money and comfort may feel charged and intense. Anger, fixation, one-pointedness can emerge. Notice where you can drop, release and change.
Today, is the fourth day of Diwali. Light your lights!

Just as Wednesday arrives, Moon shifts into Vishaka nakshatra and the dual god, Indragni expresses its support and co-creative energy. Connect, collaborate and share. Gather resources from others and find support in new ways. Today is Diwali! Celebrate life, vitality, light and wealth! Let Lakshmi nourish and support your with her many abundant gifts and resources! Read More.
The new Moon is at 11:47 CST while Moon transits Libra and Vishaka nakshatra. Moon is conjunct debilitated Sun (as it always is during the new Moon) as well as Mercury. There is a gentleness and deeply inward focus for this new Moon. The natural tendency is to turn inward during the emptiness of Amavasya, but debilitated Sun amplifies this inward stroke. Physical and spiritual bodies request attention and focus. Meditate, spend time in nature and deepen embodiment. New harvesting may take place with your inner realms so be sure to make space for listening through pauses and contemplation. It's a powerful time to clean up and attend to unfinished business on the emotional, mental and physical body levels. Let spirit support you with these shifts and changes.
Relationships and money are a big part of the transformations that are taking place during the new Moon and into the waxing cycle. Relationships and money are connected to Venus, who offers comfort, support and the necessary nourishment for life itself. Venus provides life support, shakti, and the necessary flow of love in order for us to connect and harmonize with life. We can't do this alone, it's a collaborative effort. Challenges, frustrations and blockages arrive to help you make adjustments and move towards new pathways of nourishment and support. What obstacles are you noticing? What is arriving that is asking you to take a deeper look? Attend to necessary changes and transformations at this time in order for more Venus support. Gather resources and tools to assist you with inner change.
The critic will have an agenda all its own in the waxing cycle. It's focus and fixation needs a good rattling in order to soften and offer more flexibility. Notice where you are resisting and refusing. How is your rigidity serving you? More importantly, what does your critic need? It may be hiding behind protection or a false sense of safety. Let it come towards the light and invite it over for tea and scones. Deepen your relationship with your inner critic- including all the stories it kicks up around shoulds, have-to's, supposed to's and musts. These illusions need to be awakened and cleared in order for growth to take place. Where are you trapped, locked in to old patterns of being and believing? Now is the time to liberate yourself and remove the veils. Keep moving towards deeper and deeper nourishment- the kind that invites in safety and support, stability and inner knowing. You'll know this nourishment when you are embodied and the felt senses are enlivened. This is not something the mind can offer.
Late evening on Wednesday, Moon shifts to its debilitation sign, Scorpio. Keep turning inward and attend to your inner landscape.
Thursday, Moon continues through Scorpio and its debilitation here provokes inward focus, vulnerability and sensitivity. As moon conjuncts Saturn during this transit, attending to the emotional and physical bodies is vital. In the wee hours of the morning, Moon shifts to Anuradha nakshatra and moves closer to Saturn. Watch for depression, feelings of isolation, grief, release and letting go that may instigate inner sensitivity. Connect with friends for support and stay out of minor details. Don't get sucked into the little things, try to keep a big picture focus. Find soft landings in the physical body. Track sensations and keep coming back to the inner landscape of your being. Find sensations of comfort, support, safety and ease- even if there are overwhelming challenges elsewhere.
Friday, Moon shifts to the last nakshatra of Scorpio early in the morning. As Moon transits through Jyeshtha, Indra arrives with his sensual support. His high level sensitivity provokes deep awareness on the sensorial level of our being. Rather than control and resistance of our senses, take a nourishing approach. How can you deepen your relationship with the sensations of your being? Rather than being ruled by these amazing human parts of the body, let them become resources for information, deepening nourishment and pathways to joy, balance and awakening. Less control, more compassion.

Mid morning on Saturday, Moon shifts into Sagittarius, crossing the tricky gap between watery Scorpio and fiery Sagittarius. Notice what is burning away and being released. As Moon arrives in Sagittarius, it lands in Mula, an often challenging and chaotic lunar constellation. Turmoil, shifts, changes and transformations are inevitable as this star pulls up roots and tills our inner soil. What are you gathering, bundling up- and how can you find a deeper release? Stand your ground. Find your center. Arrive in your core and avoid the overwhelm and challenges.
Debilitated Sun and Mercury are in tight conjunction in the coming days. Mind is sharp, but possibly fried. Watch for overactive critic and excessive focus. Avoid burn out with extra self care, meditation and time in nature. Go slow and pause as much as possible.
Sunday, Moon moves to PurvaAshada nakshatra, the domain of water goddess, Apas. Gain fluidity, flow and momentum today through attending to the emotional body. Harness its wisdom and creative forces by tapping into your feelings and attending to their messages. What is asking for your attention and intention? The mirror of money and relationships will provoke and instigate deeper inquiry. Pay attention to this awareness. Let passions stir nourishment and connection with desire and possibility. Sun and Mercury are still tightly conjunct, rendering the mental body combust, hot and fiery. Do less and accomplish more.
Late morning on Monday, Moon moves to the latter half of the Ashada constellation, UttaraAshada, and the Vishva Devas arrive to lend their support and assistance. When we align with right action, dharma, Nature aligns to support us with her power and abundance. The All Gods, or Vishva Devas, who rule this nakshatra, remind us of this need. Natural Laws are the supreme laws of the universe and keep us connected to Source, our ultimate alignment with life and spirit. Make you actions count today. Notice where you may be out of integrity- with yourself and spirit. Make the necessary adjustments to get the power you seek. Where is ego pushing you away from Source? What stories in the mind are keeping you from ultimate nourishment and divine connection? With debilitated Sun and Mercury in exact conjunction today, mental body work is necessary. Clean up, purify and burn away illusions and old chitta vrittis, mind stuff. Purify and transform through right relationship with Self and life.
Sun and Mercury make a frenzied shift into Scorpio almost simultaneously, on November 16th. More coming about this transit in my next post.
This Week's Intention: Allow shifts and changes to take place through potent action steps. Align with your purpose and passions with new conviction.
Move towards your deepest nourishment.
Moon is waxing and enters the seventh tithi (phase) as the seventh day of Navaratri begins. Monday is the first of three dedicated to my favorite goddess, Maha Saraswati. Goddess of nourishment through wisdom, sattva (purity), satya (truth), the arts, creativity and dharma. She provides us with support through knowing and seeking, while giving resources for our efforts. During the early hours of Monday morning, Moon shifts to PurvaAshada nakshatra while in Sagittarius. The water goddess, Apas, arrives to re-fill our cup. Invite in receiving of abundance, creativity, receptivity and emotional body wisdom. As the Navaratri celebrations continue to unfold, deepen you attention and intention during this sacred time. What are you releasing? What are you inviting in? What is arriving? Monday begins the first of three days dedicated to Maha Saraswati. Her wisdom, creative potency and nourishment through spiritual resources can be a powerful guide right now. Use Saraswati mantras to connect with her gifts as well as Chandi Path recitations for support with transformation.
Early morning Tuesday, Moon shifts to the latter half of the Ashada constellation, UttaraAshada, then into Capricorn mid morning. Rahu and Saturn give their gaze, offering shadow and restriction to the emotional body. The Vishva Devas rule this constellation and provide goodness and truth, among other resources of purity. Often called the "all gods," the Vishva Devas connect to universal principles that align us with dharma and the right path. Among these are goodness (Vasu), truth (Satya), determination (Kratu), Talent (Daksha), Time (Kala), Enjoyment (Kama), Firmness (Dhriti), Ancestors (Kuru), Abundance (Pururavas), Joy (Madrava), Pleasantness (Rochana), Sight (Lochana), Fame (Dhvani), Leadership ( Dhuri). There are strong ethics and right-action attributed to this nakshatra and a desire "to do the right thing." Ruling planet of this constellation is the Sun, the light giver for our dharmic path, our purpose for being alive. Sun is now debilitated in Libra and requires are gentle attention and intention at this time. Forcing agendas and outcomes will be met with physical exhaustion. Attend to spiritual desires and the inward pull. As the second day of Navaratri dedicated to Maha Saraswati arrives, it is an ideal time for aligning with dharma and purpose. Invite in deeper nourishment through knowledge and wisdom, creativity and the arts. Use Saraswati mantras to connect with her gifts as well as Chandi Path recitations for support with transformation.
Late evening, Moon shifts to the sacred 28th nakshatra, Abhijit. This is a spiritual portal that can increase divine connection with Source, spirit and Natural Laws. Take time to meditate and set an intention this evening for deeper alignment and nourishment during this Navaratri celebration. This portal stays open only until the first few hours of Wednesday morning.
Wednesday begins with the Moon transiting Abhijit nakshatra, then moving to Sravana after 03:25. Ruling deity, Vishnu, offers his expansive support with knowledge, wisdom, growth and dharmic alignment. Sravana nakshatra provokes a certain element of power and purpose, with a strong propensity for learning and inner growth. As Moon enters the auspicious ninth tithi (phase), wisdom and purpose are strengthened. Listen for insights and resources coming to you. Are you able to receive the support? What are you resisting and pushing away? How are you keeping yourself from being deeply fed in your life? What are the resources? What are the challenges? It is the final day of Navaratri and the last day dedicated to Maha Saraswati. Her guidance and wisdom bring deeper alignment with truth, awakening and divine support. Open and receive her support and nourishment. Use Saraswati mantras to connect with her gifts as well as Chandi Path recitations for support with transformation.
Moon transits the tenth tithi, Dashami on Thursday, guru's day. Dashami is connected to dharma and our path of truth and awakening. Moon transits Dhanishta, the domain of the Vasu Devas who bring light (jyoti), illumination and Dharma to those who align with their potent creative forces of manifestation and creation. Midday, Moon shifts into Aquarius receiving direct gaze from Jupiter, Mars and Venus. Passions stir within the emotional body. Let your creativity flow!
It is Vijaya Dashami, the tenth day of the waxing lunar cycle during the Navaratri celebration. On this day, fierce warrior goddess Durga, defeated the demon Mahishasura. Her transformational energy overcame the darkness, and light conquered the powerful demonic energy with lasting change. This battle of light and dark is at play within each one of us every day. We have choice to align with positive inner forces or dark, destructive forces within. The epic battle reiterated during the Navaratri celebration is a reminder that we too have the power of Durga within us- at all times. Her strength, passion, divine purpose and commitment to life is happening internally for every human being, though often subconscious. We are alive, breathing and able to align with our purpose for being in a human body each and every day. Do you take this on consciously and with right action? Or do you let your dark, demonic forces overcome your light? Are you honoring your deep desires for truth and ultimately your dharma, divine duty? Or do you let fear, uncertainty, resentments and old mental stories keep you from your truth, purpose and path? It is a choice. Make it conscious.
As Venus (god of the asuras, demons) nears exact conjunction with Jupiter (god of the devas, gods), we may feel this battle of light and dark increasing within us. There is an ongoing dance of good vs. evil happening within us every day as we dance with positive, life supporting thoughts, or negative, fear driven thoughts. Be vigilant with self tracking at this time and use resources and tools to consciously navigate this inner dance. Just as Thursday ends, Moon shifts to Satabisha nakshatra.
Friday begins with Moon transiting Satabisha nakshatra in the early morning. Varuna is the ruling deity of this constellation and he provides clarity through vision, as he sees all. This vision can also be deemed a "critical gaze" because he notices all that is right and wrong, often increasing the critic within. Ruling planet Rahu can increase shadow, illusion and intensity. Where can you loosen and let go? What needs to be surrendered so that the fierceness can be dropped? How can you allow healing and transformation instead of rigidity and harshness? Let the light in through gentleness and compassion. Find ways to soften.
Moon moves to PurvaBhadrapada nakshatra just before midnight.
Saturday requires us to take extra rest and attend to the physical body in very conscious ways. As Moon finishes its transit through Aquarius and moves through PurvaBhadrapada nakshatra, a need for inner and out balance develops. Meanwhile, debilitated Sun moves into a new nakshatra in the early hours of the morning. We will notice a shift in our physical and spiritual bodies as a result. As Sun shifts into Swati nakshatra, a new power enlivens. Movement, change and transformation intensifies in the coming weeks. Creative courage through subtle, gentle and nourishing ways should be attended to. Attend to your inner strength and let it be the catalyst for lasting change.
Moon shifts into Pisces, joining Ketu here, early afternoon. Both receive gaze from Rahu, Mercury and Mars. Notice where you are pushing for outcomes in the coming days. What are you forcing? Where can you drop, release and surrender? What nourishment are you resisting? Allow for the change to take place.
Meanwhile, Venus and Jupiter are in exact conjunction today and tomorrow while in Leo. The battle between light and dark continues. Polarities are alive and well right now. Where can you drop your arms and let in more light? Attend to material vs. spiritual matters with diligence. We need both and we need them to be in balance for inner and outer harmony. Notice when and how your masculine energy takes over and keeps you from being nourished by the feminine. Self care will help you return to a sense of feeling and receptivity. Attend to your emotional body wisdom. Pause and listen.
Sunday, day of Sun (Surya) illuminates the wisdom of the Sun, yet its debilitation currently in Libra requests inward reflection. Moon is waxing and in the 13th tithi (phase) today which invites bigger emotions and feelings. How can you invite in slower, gentler steps? Moon transits the latter half of the Bhadrapada constellation today giving us the opportunity for to dive deeply into our inner realms. If we create a solid and safe place to attend to our inner landscape, we can traverse this territory more powerfully. Find ways to land within and make this your intention for the day.
Late afternoon, Moon shifts to Revati nakshatra and the mental body requests attention and deeper nourishment. What energetic cords need to be cut, severed and released for more clarity and receptivity? Where are you still holding on when you should be releasing? What stories is the mental body stuck in and repeating on autopilot? Set yourself free. It's a perfect time to be working with self development resources that help you unravel the mental body programming. Continue this theme through Monday and note where the mind is stuck, resistant and rigid.
