The April full Moon arrives early on the 19th while Moon is transiting Libra and Chitra nakshatra. At 05:12 am the Moon is full of light and at capacity. Coinciding with this full Moon is Hanuman Jayanti, celebrated birth date of the powerful and beloved monkey god. This is an important cycle to find more balance, integration, and make your visions a reality. Sun is exalted in Aries and Venus remains exalted in Pisces as well. Activate, align and receive! Clarify and focus your aim and direction. Be proactive and get results.
Chitra nakshatra is ruled by Vishvakarma, god of action, building and creating. He is considered the celestial architect as he created and built the zodiac. He is a powerful ally for supporting your visions, dreams and desires as he helps them materialize and come into form through your action steps. He is not lazy and does not give results to those who are not actively working towards their goals and desires. Vishvakarma is action oriented and very focused on receiving the fruits of his labors. It's time to put plans into action.
Are you actively moving towards your goals and desires at this time? Are you being proactive and taking conscious steps towards your dharmic path and purpose?
The April full Moon takes place with Hanuman Jayanti, celebrated birth day of Lord Hanuman, the beloved monkey god. He and his monkey army saved Sita from the wrathful demon, Ravana, and brought her home safely to Ayodhya and Lord Raam. Hanuman is a Rudra- meaning he has immense strength, power and sheer force available to him. This strength was given to him by Vayu, the wind god- father to both Bhima and Hanuman. Hanuman reminds us of righteous action and that we must use our power and strength for conquering evil and restoring balance- while always upholding dharma. His devotion to Lord Rama expresses deep bhakti, and the power of leading with the heart. Your true strength is your heart wisdom.
Navaratri has ended now. This is the time of year when Sun completes a year long cycle around the zodiac and activates a brand new solar cycle. Sun entered Aries on Sunday, April 14th, arriving in Ashwini nakshatra and his sign of exaltation. The Sun is the center of our solar system. He rules over the light cycles and natural rhythms. He brings the dawn, the day, the growth that comes from his life light. As Sun enters his most powerful placement of the zodiac, a fresh start and powerful beginning takes place.This Sun transit activates a new year in the Vedic calendar and the immense power of the Sun offers a surge of new energy and strength. This is a wonderful time to cleanse the body, mind and spirit. Clean, clear and purge the heaviness of the past year and clear away the undigested emotions lingering. Create space for the new and burn away the excess. Clean up your diet, take time to rejuvenate, and clarify your focus and direction in life.
Just after the Sun exalts in Aries, we get the power of yet another exalted planet. Venus moves to Pisces on April 15th, joining debilitated Mercury here. Fortunately these two planets are friendly to each other, however, their opposing strengths will express extremes. Mercury is turning inward in his least favorite sign, while Venus expresses her energy externally at maximum capacity. This is an interesting juxtaposition for creativity, romance, the feminine, beauty, art, love, harmony and finances. Watch for excess, over indulgences and extremes with these areas of your life.
Use the coming month to get clear, refocus your priorities and clarify your dharmic path. Set goals, honor your intentions and align your actions with more purpose. Simultaneously find more balance, creativity and nourishment in your life. Find the joy and say yes to more pleasure.
With the potential for expansion also comes the challenges of two retrograde planets who are asking us to re-visit some very old ground. The coming cycle brings shifts with Jupiter and Saturn. Jupiter has been retrograde since April 10th and will re-enter Scorpio on April 23rd. Saturn will also go retrograde on April 30th for a lengthy return through Sagittarius. Saturn and Ketu continue to move into close conjunction, preparing for a collision. This is a long cycle of heavy Saturn forcing us to return to grief that has been undigested and undervalued. Pay attention.
These transits create challenges with old, established structures and foundations as well as support, guidance and wisdom. We are all living on shaky ground right now. Strengthening your support team and gathering more resources is vital. The area of life that is getting restructured will depend on where Sagittarius lives in your jyotish chart. Expect the unexpected in this area of your life.

I think it's important to acknowledge that the entire world is going through massive structural changes that can feel unsettling and painful. Increased compassion is necessary for all, as well as diligence with grief work and inner transformation. This is in important time to have an emergency plan in place and not be foolish with actions and choices. Less is more.
As Jupiter moves back through Scorpio, he is asking you to revisit your shadows, illusions and vulnerabilities. There is important clean up to do in the area of your life where Scorpio lives in your jyotish chart. Jupiter represents wisdom, guidance, teachers and spiritual resources. Gather more of what you need to navigate this process of release. You will be asked to dive even deeper into your unconscious terrain and release patterns, blockages and behaviors that are very old. You will need more support for this process so don't try to do it alone. Gather what you need and be proactive.
There are challenges and resources with the current transits. Honor the waves and be diligent with clearing and releasing. Ask for more but be realistic about the steps that need to be taken in order to achieve the results you want. Strengthen the holding and support you have in your life and don't walk alone.

New Moon Wisdom + Creative Ritual
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.
Read more about Diwali and Lakshmi's abundance here.
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.
What does empowerment feel like? How do you feel this energy in your body? Use my Tapping Meditation below to support an increase in your power. Then use this awareness to create an image and identify your needs. Take this surge of energy and channel it into powerful action steps!
Once you create your image of power, share it with us in the Embodied Moon FB group!
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.
Harvesting. In your journal answer these questions:
I am, I want, I need, I sense, I feel, I imagine, I express
Where do I feel support in my life? Where do I need more support?
I am on a mission to help sensitive souls connect with their inner truth and inner wisdom. To connect with purpose and dharma. We need you now more than ever!
