Moon Mindfulness ::: Mind Your Moon
Moon moves to Hasta nakshatra at 9:26 am as it transits Virgo. Hasta is ruled by Savitr and is associated with the Sun at dawn- literally and metaphorically. Waking up through self-realization and consciousness raising tools are inevitable with Hasta nakshatra. He is the awakener, the light-giver, and impells life- even determining ones lagna at birth. Insight, knowledge and some special ability with the hands are associated with Hasta. Hasta's symbol is a hand/fist/fingers and often Hasta people have a time period in their lives where their hands get "awakened" and the magic begins to flow out of them. This awakening within on the mental/spiritual level requires using the hands in some way in order for the creative forces to move through and be enlivened- literally hand/eye coordination. Perhaps we could call it hand/Ajna (third eye) coordination.
The Moon receives drishti from Mercury today- Virgo is its home of exaltation. Look for some mental lift, awareness and clarity today. The Gayatri Mantra is connected to Savitr. Use it to increase the momentum and the inner sparks. Use your hands and let the creativity flow from mind to heart and out the finger tips.
