Moon is in Uttarabhadrapada and Pisces, ruled by Saturn and Ahirbudhyna and symbolized by the back legs of funeral cot. Endings, transformations, working in the unseen realms, mantras, serpent energy such as kundalini, awakenings, awareness and consciousness development are heightened here. Ahirbudhnya is a Rudra, a storm deity, who removes calamities and misfortunes. Therefor he brings movement, change, power, activation.
Other planetary expressions included, today is a day that activates change, movement and momentum. What direction are you heading in? What forces are working with you, around you and in you? Resisting the winds of change is not a good use of energy. Surrender to the flow, release your sail, and catch a tail wind.
Currently Moon is waning (dark half) in the 8th tithi Ashtami ruled by Rahu. Jupiter moves into Ardra nakshatra today- ruled by Rahu. Jupiter gives drishti to Rahu/Saturn in Libra as Rahu simultaneously give drishti to Jupiter in Gemini. Rahu currently transits Vishaka nakshatra ruled by Jupiter. There is an exchange of energy here between Rahu and Jupiter as well as a heightened expression of Rahu- jumpstarted by today's nakshatras.
For some, this will offer big expansion in a worldly sense, for others chaos and calamity. Be aware of storm energy and a tendency toward overwhelm. Tomorrow Rahu will move to Swati nakshatra, ruled by Rahu. Today starts the momentum that will carry us forward for the coming weeks and months on the winds of Vayu and the worldly essence of Rahu. Prepare for change.
Moon Mindfulness ::: Mind Your Moon
Moon enters Uttarabhadrapada at 9:12 am central time. Uttarabhadrapada is ruled by Ahirbudhnya, a son of Vishvakarma (the divine architect and ruler of Chitra nakshatra) and is considered a Rudra (calamity/storm energy) deity. Ahirbudhnya is the serpent of the deep, the nether worlds, the hidden realms.
Serpents are often associated with Kundalini energy, secret knowledge and subjects that are unseen and unknown by the majority. He protects the Vedic knowledge, mantras and Vedic texts. He performs rituals and rites and is often associated with magic and tantra. He is also connected to mist and fog as he is the upward movement of water leading to rain.
Today, seek to uncover the mystery of life, the depths that you are. Find some upward movement and clear the fog. Uncoil the serpent energy and unlock your Kundalini. Prepare for the big changes coming this week.
