This Week's Intention: Where do you feel gratitude and loving kindness moving through you?
How do these waves of abundance invite in more expansion and possibility for you?
Dive into these powerful waves moving from your heart center and swim with the currents-
not against them.
The week begins with an immense Moon, awakening the most auspicious full Moon of the year, Guru Purnima. Your cup is full and teaming with emotion and power. How are you channeling this big energy?
Monday, July 18th
Moon in 14th tithi
Moon moves to the second nakshatra in Sagittarius early in the morning, arriving in the domain of Apas. PurvaAshada is ruled by mighty water goddess- who can be a soft, gentle stream, or ferocious white waters. Both cleanse and clear but the feeling is very different.

* All timing is in Mountain Daylight Time. To determine the current nakshatra for your time zone, add or subtract time based on your distance to Mountain Time.

You may believe that relationships are a mirror, you may have even used others as a reflection for change and healing. But what do your relationships really say about your deeper needs? The parts of you that long to be healed, touched, awakened and transformed?
From a jyotish perspective, the 7th house of your chart represents relationships. It is the “other” what you are looking at, seeing outside of yourself. You may like what you see, or you may despise it. Depending on the planets and their relationship with your 7th house, you may experience more or less challenges with “the other”. There may be cycles that kick up extra turmoil or pain as a result of the mirrors you are looking at.
These external mirrors are reflecting to you what is inside. Whether it feels good, or whether it hurts, what you are experiencing is a piece of your inner landscape. Love or hate, it’s all within you.
The 7th house of the jyotish chart is an expression of yoga. Of merging, integrating, uniting- all the parts of ourselves that we feel separate from, that feel outside of ourselves. The house of relationships reminds you how to conjoin and connect, to harmonize and balance your inside world with your outer world.
The problem is that most people don’t use relationships as a resource for deep inner healing. Most people are using relationships as another resource for avoidance, resistance or addiction. Relationships become a passive resource for connection, rather than one of deep transformation.
Yoga is union. Yoga is life. Relationships are yet another resource for yoga.
Yoga is not just a merging of the self with the divine. Yoga in fact is union on all levels of your being. Union of the human self and the spiritual self. Only when these two bodies begin to dance together with more integration, can you find harmony or unity. Your humanness must learn how to co-create, to be in relationship with, to integrate with, your spirit- then yoga is achieved. This dance of integration is in constant fluctuation and change, yet always seeking balance on some level of existence.
It's not easy to work with the hard stuff, the darkness, your human qualities, and to use the pain as a resource for transformation. Very few people are able to do the powerful inner work needed to become enlightened while staying in isolation. The mirrors coming to you from relationships are catalysts for deepening your awakening process. They arrive to help you lean in closer. To awaken new pathways within.
When a relationship feels good, it can be a welcome resource to ease and support, to nourish and soothe. But what about the difficult relationships that arrive? How can you use these painful experiences to deepen and awaken yourself from unconscious slumber?
When a painful or challenging mirror is shown to you, it is a reminder to look closer at yourself. It has arrived to flash a part of your being to you. A part of yourself that you need to look at very acutely. No one wants to admit they have a mean, horrid or deceitful person hidden inside of them. But if you can work with this shadow more consciously, you will be liberated from it.
How willing are you to look into the mirror and use the painful parts of yourself that you despise as your biggest teachers?
How willing are you to use the outside mirrors, the people that you hate as your biggest guru?
The reality is that these mirrors arriving are in fact the parts of yourself that you refuse to look at. They have to intensify and show up in your face, blatantly screaming, just to get your attention. The longer you repress, suppress and avoid the shadow, the more intense and obnoxious it becomes.
If you attract a sad and lonely person, this requires you heal the grief within.
If a narcissist appears, you must attend to your inner narcissist.
If a whiny, complainer arrives, you must attend to the dissatisfied parts of yourself.
If an angry, violent person is presented to you, this enraged person must become your resource for healing your inner violence.
Everything that you attract is a resource for your healing work. Every mirror is a reflection of your inner being. This includes your family system and the story of your lineage. Often these parts of ourselves can be suppressed, resisted or avoided for generations, but eventually they will emerge stronger and darker than ever. Eventually there will be a potent expression of the pain, grief, shadow and darkness that has been hidden in the family for generations. These mirrors are resources for healing not only yourself, but the darkness and grief that has been suppressed in your family for generations.
When a challenging or painful mirror arrives, do you look closer? Do you lean in or do you push it away? Do you walk past it or do you recognize the mirror being shown to you?
When a painful mirror arrives, remember that it is a resource. We have choice and freewill that can determine the outcome. Just to be very clear, using the pain as resource for your healing never requires staying in a dysfunctional or abusive relationship. How we choose to use the challenges will determine the awakening that takes place within. This includes using healthy boundaries. When the same mirror returns over and over again, it is vital that you deepen your inner work and recognize that you are resisting some shadows, parts of yourself that are still hidden.
A relationship with another person, is a concentrated relationship with yourself. This is yoga in action. This integration with self and other, with human and spirit, with light and dark, is the path of yoga. The 7th house of the jyotish chart reiterates this expression of yoga, reminding us that everything that arrives on our path is a resource for awakening, transformation and healing.
Use the Tapping Meditation below to move, transform and release mental and emotional blockages with relationships.
If the words I use don't work for you, change them to align with your own story more closely.
Use this Tapping Meditation to work through challenging relationships- when you feel stuck, afraid or resistant to change. Remember that we always start with "truth tapping" by expressing feelings and experiences that feel challenging. This is a vital part of the process and paves the way for transformation and healing.
In the podcast below, I share a tapping (EFT) sequence with you that will guide you through transforming and releasing the old stories and invite in more receptivity. Remember, we start with identifying the challenges, then moving into possibility and desires in order to transform our shadow into light.
Use this podcast as you tap through these points:
Karate chop point (side of the hand).
Crown of the head.
Eyebrow point (above the eye).
Side of the eye.
Under the eye.
Under the nose.
Chin point (crease of the chin).
Throat point (collar bone/throat chakra).
Heart point (center of chest).
Stomach point (above the navel).
Side body (nipple line at side of chest).
Tap six to ten times on each point and just keep cycling through the points. Repeat the phrases I use aloud. Notice any thoughts, stories, memories or emotions that emerge as you tap. These are important pieces to return to, do more tapping on, as a way to clear blockages. As always, if the words I use don't work for you, change them to support your process more fully.
Share your experiences below! What emerged for you in this process? Excited to hear from you!

Everyone that comes to me for a session wants to know one of these things:
What is my life purpose? How can I make more money? What can I do about my relationship issues?
The hardest part of my job as a jyotish coach is not giving advise or looking at someone's chart and seeing what the challenges are for a person's life. I look at the karmic map and there are the struggles, the issues and challenges staring at me. Finding what isn't working, is not the hard part.
As a jyotishi, the challenge I face consistently is giving resources, tools and embodiment guidance, but instead watching the client choose not to take these vital action steps. Watching a client refuse to take action in order to move through their weaknesses and obstacles is hard for me! Especially since I know that some very different approaches are needed in their life, in order for their desires to actually manifest.
This requires my deepest surrender and detachment.
It's true, many people just want to be told what to do and they want some magic pill to take care of it for them. They want a quick fix. A mantra, or yagya (which can often be valuable no doubt.) Or they want to know that their problems will just go away once Saturn isn't transiting over their Moon etc. Many clients hope that their "soul mate" will magically appear once a relationship transit arrives. But the reality is, it really isn't that simple.
We get what we are ready for. What we are prepared for. What we have created space for.
Money, love and creativity are all ruled by Venus- and rightfully so. These three powerful factors in our lives can bring joy or misery, abundance, or little more than a drop. Money, love and creativity are all determined by our ability to give and receive, or quite literally, the amount of flow and fluidity we are working with; the fluidity we are able to use and able to harness. This is why Venus is also connected to water, the most vital life-giving resource for us. Without water in the physical body, we have death. Death is lack of life of course, so the more vitality and life-giving forces we invite into our beings, the more life, fluidity and flow we experience as a result.
The pelvis (and organs therein) as well as the second chakra, are the physical containers of money, love and creativity. If we are feeling a lack in any one of these areas, we need to address the physical issues connected to them as well. But the first chakra, and the body parts included in the first chakra (every thing from the pubic bone down to the feet), is perhaps the most vital part of the manifestation process.
My favorite money quote is: Money wants clarity, purpose and flow! These are the domains of the first and second chakras!
Contrary to popular belief, it isn't through thinking your desires that they become manifest. And contrary to popular belief it isn't through your meditation practice, your affirmations, your positive thinking, or anything else that is a part of your mental body process, that will actually help you materialize the intangible into the tangible.
If you want to bring your desires into the material, you have to work with the first and second chakras (the lower, base, chakras) which are intimately connected with the material world. These chakras are all about being here, right now, in a physical form. Our body, our grounding, our actual physical connection to our life, is the realm of the first chakra. If you aren't in your body, embodied, you can not, and will not, be able to get your ideas and visions to manifest into the material world. We quite literally manifest through our body!
This reality is reiterated through the story of lord Brahma creating the universe from his navel. He reminds us that we have the ability to create our lives- which is why he and his consort Saraswati rule over creativity and the power of the arts. They remind us that it is our creativity that is literally our most potent source of knowledge and wisdom for this existence.
Want more money, love and creativity? Get into your body wisdom and your emotional body wisdom. Manifestation happens when we are intimately connected with our feeling level, our felt senses, the emotional body wisdom and the intuition. This is why I am so passionate about a body-centered approach to therapy, one that uses somatic wisdom, while also drawing upon the expressive arts as a resource for intimate exploration, and harnessing our innate, creative wisdom. It is also why I start my clients off with embodiment step number one, the three level check in.
We must get more embodied if we want our dreams to manifest. We must work with the body wisdom and our intuitive knowing in order to create from our most primal sense of self. This is where we tap into our innate creativity. Creativity is actually a vital ingredient for the money and the love to start flowing. This is the gift of the embodiment resources and the art therapy techniques I work with; they potently activate the creative and physical channels. This stimulates the flow and fluidity of Venus, which we need in our lives in order to be more nourished on an ongoing basis.
Don't think your desires. Feel them. Move them. Create with them. Go beyond your imagination. Gather your desires from your dreams, from your sense of intuitive knowing, and move them into existence through your body.
Use your jyotish chart as your map to get you to the wisdom you need to unlock your shadows, disappointments and challenges. But don't stop there. In fact, if you stop at just the "knowing" of what your issues are, you won't move beyond them or learn to work with them differently. If you really want lasting change, and to create a different life for yourself, you have to take action steps that will literally help you re-create your life from the ground, up. From your feet to your head. From your first chakra and your second chakras first, then all the way up to your 7th chakra!
I'm very passionate about my system, my tools and the synergy of modalities that I use of course! But I'm even more passionate about sharing them with you, and watching you grow, flourish, and thrive as you re-create your life over and over again!
