The Moon continues to wane this week, Mercury goes direct and Mars shifts to Pisces. Late in the week the Sun moves into Aquarius, bringing shifts in energy, and the insistence of innovation and resourcefulness. Mercury's direct motion helps us make forward leaps with communication and networking matters.
Monday, February 9th
Today's Intention: Walking leads to leaping. Make your steps count.
Moon transits Chitra nakshatra, and the divine architect, Vishva Karma burst into our day with a take charge energy. Suddenly action steps appear and we are building our staircase to heaven! Today, necessary action steps are clear, focused, more refined. Get stepping and take strong, bold actions in order for more powerful outcomes.
Moon separates from Rahu and shifts into Libra at 11:17 am PST, moving our emotional bodies away from the shadows of discontent and into a sign that often challenges us with confusion. The ruling planet of Chitra, Mars, moves to the edge of Aquarius and makes our movements, power and force softer, less stable. You may question yourself, but pick a side, make a choice and take action regardless. Keep one foot firmly rooted, while the other prepares to take the necessary step forward. Take this intention into your week.

Today's Intention: Courage dear heart, courage. And a bit of tenacity.
Just after midnight Pacific time, Moon shifts into Swati nakshatra and Vayu, the wind god, breezes in. Expect high winds today, inside and out. Use these winds to gain momentum, to increase your strength, stamina and movement forward. Do not let them scatter you or your energy. With Mars sandhi, at the edge of Aquarius, we may misuse our action steps today. Ambivalence and uncertainty may arise or overtly aggressive tendencies and misuse of our warrior energy. Plan accordingly as relationships, our interactions, are vulnerable, and this will effect our emotional body experiences. Tap into your feelings and ask the right questions before the emotional body gets triggered. Today, get moving- boldly and swiftly.
Wednesday, February 11th
Today's Intention: Expand and connect. Interrelate and introspect. Move in a forward direction.
Moon moves to the latter half of Libra, and enters Vishaka nakshatra at 02:34 am PST. Indragni, the dual god, reminds us to co-create, collaborate and make meaningful synergistic connection. It's our ability to work together and be resilient, while also relying on others, that makes the world go round. We need hierarchy, and can't go without some sense of order. Indra is the king, while Agni is the priest. Both require each other for sustainability, for growth and transformation. We may feel challenged by this necessity for relationship today. We may feel resentful of it. Some may feel an increase passion and desire instead. Others will have confusion around their roles in relationship. As Moon shifts into Scorpio at 21:39 PST, the emotional aspects of this experience set in and may turn into waves of sadness, depression or rage, or perhaps just a release of these old feelings. Self track and take note. What is underneath the emotion? What is the true need?
Mercury goes direct at 06:54 am PST while in UttaraAshada nakshatra. This is a Sun ruled nakshatra and the Sun is now sandhi, at the edge of Capricorn where Mercury is now. Are your mental wires fried? Are you feeling frazzled? Stick to routine and maintain a balanced structure as much as possible right now. Following the ways of Saturn and his mandates will get you far. Attending to your physical body needs will support and assist you with your mental body. In the coming days, we will feel a bit more support from the VishvaDevas, the Laws of Nature, now that Mercury is moving forward, but let the Sun gets stronger first after he moves to Aquarius on the 13th.
Late in the evening, Mars shifts into Pisces at 23:13 PST, joining Ketu here. Ketu acts like Mars and both are hot, fiery, and spark heat. Pisces is a water sign, so we must attend to our inner water and our inner fire diligently in the coming weeks as fire and water don't mix well. Part of us will want to go with the flow, while the other part of us will be like a warrior pushing orders and agendas. This is a time for us to integrate these polarities within us. Ketu adds sharp, quick and sudden to the mix- like electric shocks and sudden sparks. If you begin to feel frazzled, your wires fried, this is your red light! Stop, slow down, find the water within you and increase more of the flow. Dancing with these two elements intentionally will help the awareness and integration process. Pay attention to how your physical, emotional and mental bodies are responding to fire and water within you. What do you need in order to find a more fluid life dance? This metaphor will be intensified as Venus moves to Pisces, its exaltation sign, and joins Mars and Ketu here on the 15th.

Today's Intention: Turning inward and asking the right questions, we find what we need.
Moon transits its debilitation sign, Scorpio, with Saturn, and moves into Anuradha nakshatra at 03:54 am PST. Mitra, the ruling deity of Anuradha is ushered into our day with his ability to notice fine detail and to be nourished by these details. This is also called the "friendly star" because of Mitra's benevolent nature. He helps us connect and co-create through friends and helpful relationships. Moon debilitated will offer a softening of our emotional body today, meaning a more porous experience of our feeling body. This can deepen our intuition or make us an emotional mess. Always, we should be noticing what our needs are, what is the underlying nourishment we are seeking, in order to fully awaken the emotional body messages. Get embodied! Resourcing from the sensations of the body will help on every level and returning to the awareness of the breath. Jupiter's drishti on the Moon will help with your awareness process, so invite in some willingness.
There is an interesting dance happening in the cosmos that brings up mental tension and the need to force action. Or conversely some may be feeling the mental tension of not taking effective action. This is a time to really focus on only the essentials. Get practical. Make a list of every thing that has to get done, that you want to get done, that needs to get done. Then circle the top five essentials for today. Do this every day and make these items your top priority. Action steps leads to relief. One step at a time.
Sun shifts into Aquarius at 18:34 PST, joining Venus here. There will be an intensification and extra heat within our relationships, our creativity, and our inner waters until Venus shifts into Pisces on Sunday. Sun and Venus stir the pot, activate and charge our ability to relate to ourselves and others. It's important to be self tracking right now and take note of polarities coming up in our personal mythology. Strong binary thinking patterns may emerge, so be on top of it and catch yourself in the act. The extra charge in the next couple of days can be highly creative if channeled properly. Don't lose the flow! As Sun continues to travel through Aquarius until March 14th, it's a time to be very innovative, entrepreneurial and pioneering. Use the coming weeks to think outside the box, but more importantly, to step outside the box. Creativity will swell and carry you forward if you venture into new territory. Enjoy the tidal wave!

Today's Intention: The mind is a powerful tool to use and to lose.
Moon moves to Jyeshtha nakshatra at 04:26 am PST. Indra is welcomed into our day as ruling deity of this Mercurial nakshatra. The mind, the mental body, needs to be our focus today. Pay attention and track yourself. What are you noticing? What are you learning? Indra rules over our senses. When we keep vigilant awareness of our senses, we can become a master of our life. Let the senses rule you? You lose your intelligence, wisdom and life force. Look for flashes of insight and/or overwhelm today. Look for new ways of thinking and deepening your mental/emotional body awareness. Self track and use the 3 levels of awareness as a resource.
Mars has just moved to Pisces and Sun has just moved to Aquarius. Both are still under two degrees today and considered sandhi (in the gap), as they arrive into their new homes. If action steps and your sense of self feel uncertain, weak or extra vulnerable today, this is why. Tend to your physical body, your movements, your breath. Ground the feelings and thoughts in physical body awareness.

Today's Intention: Get down to the essentials today. What are the necessities?
At 04:07 am PST, Moon crosses the challenging junction between Scorpio (water) into Sagittarius (fire) and lands in Sagittarius and Mula nakshatra. This is a cutting, clearing and disruptive lunar constellation ruled by Nirrti, the goddess of adharma. She breaks and destroys, uproots and removes.
You may feel you are re-tracing some very old steps today. Parts of yourself that have been unattended, are lingering and are effecting your emotional body. Tend to these pieces and notice if the letting go process is where the pain resides. What are you removing and letting go of right now? What do you need to let go of and remove in order to move forward?
Venus moves to the edge of Aquarius and becomes sandhi, making love, connecting, relationships and creativity vulnerable and delicate. An interesting day for Valentines Day in the USA!
Sunday, February 15th
Today's Intention: Be a love warrior and march towards your own passion.
Yesterday was the clearing, the cutting, the removing. Today is the emotional body response to this change, this inner shift. As Moon moves into PurvaAshada, the ruling deity Apas, reminds us to keep our inner waters moving. Keep the flow, large or small, but keep it moving. Apas is the water goddess and connects us to perspiration- when water and fire mix. This nakshatra reminds us that part of the purification process includes heat, intensity and discomfort at times. Water is a powerful force. Inner creativity is intensifying right now, challenging us to ask for what we truly want and need. Dive into these internal waters and explore your desires. Relationships will be offering the mirror.

Venus shifts into Pisces at 16:22 PST, its sign of exaltation, and joins Mars and Ketu here. All three planets receive drishti from Rahu and Jupiter, which induces a wide angle lens on our love matters in the coming month. Passion is high, intensity is building and sudden awareness abounds. Simultaneously we will be hyper aware of where our love needs are not being met, where we need more support and nourishment. For those who are ready to make change, this will be a time to make shifts in relationship structures. Use the discomfort to force the change. Others will just suffer and miss the messages, without taking action. I encourage you to use this as an opportunity for deeper heart centered awareness, to challenge your relationship paradigms, and to clean out your heart, your emotional body. What is love and what do you need to keep the love flowing? What do you need to keep the creativity flowing? What actions need to be taken in order to get the nourishment you need?

Moon moves to UttaraAshada at 01:09 am PST and the Vishvadevas enter the day to support us with greater alignment and connection to the Laws of Nature. Rise, align and shine!
