This Week's Intention:
Release, let go, transform, liberate, heal. Repeat.
Moon continues to wax as the sacred nine day celebration of Navaratri continues to unfold. The week begins with the last day of three dedicated to Ma Durga. Cutting, clearing and transformation abound! What are you releasing and letting go of? Work actively this week to change and release that which is not serving you on the psycho/emotional levels of your being.
Monday, October 3rd
Moon in 3rd tithi
Swati nakshatra continues to bring powerful changes to feelings and emotions. Ruling Deity of Swati nakshatra, Vayu, the wind god, invites in swift movement and change. Whether it's a gentle breeze or huge gusts, winds of change are ushering in transformation. What are you tracking within your own personal landscape? Use your emotional body as a resource for discerning your needs. What is working? What is not?

Full Moon is in Libra and Swati nakshatra at 23:23 MDT on Thursday, April 21st. Swati nakshatra is ruled by Vayu and his powerful movement and strength. The April full Moon is also the celebrated birth day of Lord Hanuman, the beloved monkey god that saved Sita from the wrath of the 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, and father of both Bhima and Hanuman. Hanuman reminds us of righteous action, using our power and strength for conquering evil and restoring balance, while always upholding dharma.
Moon is reflecting the energy of its enemy sign, Libra at the time of the full Moon. Libra's constant quest for balance is too unstable for the Moon, which prefers equanimity.

This Week's Intention: Find intelligent footsteps and track your progress. Land, ground and arrive within. Use self care as your starting point. All nourishment begins within.
Let it begin to take root.
The week begins with a waning Moon. Three planets have just changed signs. Mars has moved to Libra, Venus to Scorpio and Mercury is now in Capricorn. Gather your resources and attend to self care diligently this week. It's a potent gap for landing before Mercury and Jupiter go retrograde next week. Jupiter is at the very edge of Leo, sandhi. Rahu and Ketu prepare to leave Virgo and Pisces on the 30th of January. Changes are in the air. Find your grounding and inner support this week and walk softly.
Monday begins with a waning Moon moving through the 4th tithi (Moon phase). Find ways to contain and hold yourself with comfort and support. As Moon continues through Cancer and Ashlesha nakshatra, Sarpa brings illusions and deception to the foreground. Are you stuck in the shadow? Where can you shine more light on your darkness? Your emotional body can give you the necessary messages for increasing the light within. It is your barometer for wellness, for how well your needs are being met. Where do you need more support, new resources, extra self care? What changes need to be made in order for your inner nourishment to increase? It's a time of change and making new choices in order for new and different results in the weeks and months to come. Start now.
Just before midnight, the Moon jumps the tricky gap between Cancer (water) and Leo (fire), landing in fierce and mighty Magha nakshatra.
Tuesday, Moon transits Leo and Magha nakshatra, the magnificent one, known for its regal nature and powerful authority. There is a strong connection to the ancestors here, especially the father's lineage. Pay attention to messages from spirit and make an intention of calling on the ancestors for support and guidance. Our power is supported by their wisdom and strength. Ask for their assistance. We do nothing alone. Saturn's drishti to the Moon gives some slowing effects, while also offering grief and depression as well as containment and structure. Attend to the emotional body with wisdom today. What is the need your emotional body is asking of you? Can you attend to your grief with diligence and intention?
Just as Wednesday begins, Moon shifts to Purvaphalguni nakshatra, a fertile and creative star known for its excess of Shakti, life force energy. It is a star that notoriously attracts bees like honey and increases sensuality and sexual energy. The translation is the "earlier fig tree" which connects to its spring-like essence. There is a ripening, a certain juiciness today; the sap is running. How are you using this life force energy moving through you? Where do you channel it and let it flow? The body part connected to this nakshatra is the right hand, or the giving hand. Move your creative energy and turn it into an offering. Create clear and focused containment for your creative flow in order to maximize this energy and use it wisely.
Mid morning Thursday, Moon shifts to the latter half of the Phalguni constellation, Uttaraphalguni. The translation of this star is the "later fig tree" which expresses the ripened fruits of a mature tree. There is a certain strength and wisdom that comes with a season of harvest- when the fruits have ripened and dropped. The sap has moved and created, allowing the wisdom to be used, integrated and absorbed. Uttaraphalguni connects us to the nourishment that sustains creativity, love and our life force energy. It is only through time, commitment and consistency that we get the benefits of these gifts. Make your efforts sustainable and find the rewards. What can you do today to help your success? Use effective action steps and keep your vision alive through trust, support and nurturing. The body part of this star is the left hand, assisting the act of receiving. Receive the wisdom of time and the many gifts it provides you with. Slow down and find your pause.
Just before noon, Moon moves to Virgo, joining Rahu here. Moon and the north shadow node will be in tight conjunction until late evening. Confusion and uncertainty may arrive or big ideas and grande desires. Find the middle ground and stoke your flames, while making sure your footsteps are firmly rooted in the earth.
Late morning Friday, Moon shifts to Hasta nakshatra and Savitr brings his dawning light. There's a certain sensitivity with this lunar constellation as it can feel and sense with absolute accuracy. The body part connected to this nakshatra are the fingers. The fingers are a main resource for sensation and sensory awareness for humans. The hands heal, create, touch, grasp and release. The fingers can move ample amounts of energy out and through them, being conduits of healing and creativity. What are you sensing? How are you using this input for creative activation? What are you creating? What are you grasping and holding onto? What are you releasing and letting go of? Let your inner wisdom be your guide. Land in your emotional body for active insights.
As late Saturday morning arrives, Moon moves to Chitra nakshatra, the brilliant one. Symbolized by a shining jewel, this lunar constellation is notorious for creating, adorning and building beauty. Ruling deity Vishva Karma is an action oriented creator, called the divine architect. He is an Aditya, one who brings resources to us. As an incarnation of lord Brahma, his creative powers have potent manifestation abilities. Much creative activation can take place under this star pattern, so use it with conviction and let your desires be activated by your intentional action steps.
Just before midnight, Moon moves to Libra, joining Mars here. Passions and anger are sparked. Use your fire with awareness.
Sunday, Moon continues through Libra and Chitra nakshatra until Noon. The tight conjunction of Moon and Mars continues most of the day, even as Moon slips into Swati nakshatra. Passion and anger are closely connected. How are you channeling this energy? Do you use it for creating and activating your desires? Or do you use it to blow torch people and dump your emotions on them? Be mindful about your intensity today and use this energy with intention and purpose. Get a lot done, rather than channeling your frustrations on your relationships. Manage your shadow. What do you really need for support, nourishment and comfort? Get your needs met in healthy ways. Use self care to calm your inner winds. Change has blown in with a certain intensity today. Track Rudra's messages diligently.
Monday, Moon continues through the swift and windy nakshatra, Swati. Vayu, the wind god is ruling deity, bringing change and movement with him. Swati translates as "the sword" since it is decisive, clear and action oriented. Early afternoon, Mars shifts to Swati nakshatra as well, intensifying the type of movement and strength available in the coming days. Force and momentum are stirring within. Where are you directing this energy? How can you use it for activation of desires, dharmic path and moving towards your purpose? Do you waste this energy? Is self-sabotage derailing you and keeping your energy small and fizzled out? Use healthy boundaries diligently and attend to self care with focus. Ride this wave responsibly and don't squander this momentum.
Late afternoon, Moon moves to Vishaka nakshatra. You may be presented with options and opportunities, or you may suddenly realize you have more choices than you originally thought. Keep reaching and spreading your branches.

This Week's Intention: Seek balance and inner harmony by honestly working with challenges and obstacles. Where are you resisting and refusing deeper nourishment in your life?
Get radical with your release.
It's a waning Moon week. An internal focus is strengthening, while chaos, confusion and uncertainty amplify. New Moon is this Friday while Moon transits its debilitation sign, Scorpio. Open the release valve and dramatically purge what no longer serves you.
Midmorning Monday, Moon moves to Swati nakshatra in Libra and joins Venus in exact conjunction. Inner and outer winds intensify. What direction are you moving? Can you stay grounded even in the midst of these strong winds? Creative flow is increasing. Catch the wave with intention and harness the creative powers within.
Tuesday Moon shifts to Vishaka nakshatra and the dual forces of Indra and Agni amplify the need for extra support. Today, as Moon and Venus continue in close conjunction, our emotional body waivers, challenging stability and inner grounding. Land and ground, find stability through the pelvis and use your creative inner tides for resourcing. Work consciously with issues involving relationships, finances, health and comfort.
As Wednesday morning begins, Moon shifts to its debilitation sign, Scorpio, joining Sun and Saturn here. This combination increases struggle and suffering in the emotional body. Late morning Moon moves to Mitra's nakshatra, Anuradha. Reach out for resources and gain resiliency through connecting with others. Work with structure- internal and external. Allow space for spirit to enter, while also consciously working with emotional blockages and challenges. Find ways to keep arriving back in the body. Moon is now moving through the 14th phase or tithi and the inner realms are amplified. Go slow, be gentle and compassionate with yourself and others.
On Thursday, Moon continue through its debilitation sign, increasing sensitivity and grief as it closely conjuncts Saturn. As Moon shifts into the final constellation of Scorpio, Jyeshtha, Indra steps in. He brings strength and sensitivity simultaneously- especially to the mental body and our senses. There is an intense uprooting happening in the mind right now. Trust this is a cycle of churning in order for hidden and unconscious parts of the mind to emerge on the surface. As the challenges are identified, they can be identified and released. Use resources like the Emotional Freedom Technique to support this release process.
The new Moon arrives just as Friday morning begins. The new Moon is at 02:30 am PST while Moon is in Scorpio and Jyeshtha Nakshatra. Ketu gives his gaze while ruling planet of Scorpio, Mars, is in a tempestuous conjunction with Rahu. This waxing Moon cycle insists on balance- both inner and outer. The new balance arrives with ample changes and release. There will be tensions, confusion and uncertainty undermining the need for balance and extra support. This is a time of assessing issues and challenges with relationships, money, creativity, nourishment and comfort. Find ways to simplify and radically release the pains and pressures of desire; less is more. Sensitivity is at an all time high and self care is non-negotiable. Diligently check in with your four bodies- mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually in order to identify your needs.
Find a new sense of resiliency and harmony in this cycle by cutting away and removing toxicity. This includes toxic relationships and people, as well as toxic behaviors and patterns within. Avoid excess sugars, intoxicants, indulgences and false comforts. Clean up your inner and outer life. Big movements and changes arrive- which may be sweeping, overwhelming and unpredictable. Trust that these sudden shifts are meant to help you release and let go of what no longer serves you in nourishing and supportive ways. Where are you clinging to the past unnecessarily? Who and what is keeping you locked in a false sense of security? How are your old, toxic patterns and behaviors emerging and showing you what must radically shift?
Who is on your support team? What type of support systems do you have in place? Support and security go hand in hand. Both are essential for safety. Wherever there is a lack of stability, there is a lack of safety on some core level. Is it safe to be wealthy, comfortable, loved and nourished? Where are you resisting your basics needs because of old patterns and beliefs? Where do you feel unsafe to receive more nourishment for your life in deeper more fulfilling ways? It's time to radically uproot the mental body ground and till your inner soil. Pull up the weeds within the mind, re-write your inner stories and re-pattern the hidden agendas that self sabotage your growth, strength and progress.
Now is the time to seek out more consistent support for your four bodies. Make sure you are getting your needs met on the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual body levels. Where are there holes in your support system? What new resources and support do you need? Ask for guidance, reach out and align with teachers, therapists, healers, spiritual teachers and coaches so your progress will be swifter. Be courageous and invite in the change.
Just after noon, Moon jumps through the challenging gandanta (gap) between Scorpio and Sagittarius, landing in an often chaotic nakshatra, Mula. Underneath the chaos and turmoil is deep peace. Can you find it?
Saturday, Moon transits Sagittarius, joining Mercury here. Both receive gaze from Jupiter and Mars. Can you activate your spiritual warrior? As Moon moves through Mula, a certain uprooting is taking place. The chaos and turmoil are here to increase the change and transformation process. Are you clinging and resisting or surrendering to the letting go process? Ease the suffering and step into radical release. Ask spirit to help you remove mental and emotional body blockages. How are you self sabotaging your progress?
Just after noon, Moon shifts to PurvaAshada nakshatra and the water goddess arrives to support the release process. Cleanse, purify and let go through the support of your emotional body. Let tears help you cleanse and rejuvenate from the inside out.
Sunday Moon continues to transit PurvaAshada nakshatra until midday. The cleansing continues. Use the support of water to assist this process. Soak in water, walk near water and purify your internal waters. Hit the re-fresh button and deepen your relationship with feelings and emotions. As the Moon shifts to UttaraAshada, the Vishvadevas arrive to support shining and being seen. How can you align with your spiritual warrior and step into your pure heart wisdom? Let spirit guide you into action and use your spiritual body as a potent resource for activating inner knowing and trust.
Moon shifts to Capricorn early evening, receiving Rahu and Saturn's gaze. Powerful forces conjoin to increase change and momentum. How do you use this power?
Moon continues to transit Capricorn and UttaraAshada until early afternoon on Monday. Align with purity and purpose today. Once Moon shift to Sravana, Vishnu arrives to help us expand and awaken with his dharmic forces. Challenge what you think is possible and open up all-possibilities for yourself and your life. Seek inner and outer harmony through knowledge and wisdom. Listen to positive messages and release the harmful and hurtful inner dialogue. Be conscious of what you say and how you say it.
*All timing is given in Pacific Standard Time Zone.
This Week's Intention: Go slow and turn inward. Find soft landings and moments of joy.
Fill your cup with embodied nourishment and trust your steps.
The week begins with Moon finishing up its transit through Virgo, conjunct debilitated Venus, Mars and shadow planet Rahu. This crowded combination amplifies relationship work as well as money issues. Shadows with commodities and luxuries may surface. Moon is waning and has entered the 14th tithi the final phase before the new Moon or Amavasya.
Diwali is under way and the festival of lights invites us to awaken and increase our inner brightness with the support of Lakshmi and her divine nourishment. With the debilitation of Venus, conjunct Rahu right now, it’s an ideal time to be working with obstacles and challenges connected to money, nourishment and vitality. What is keeping you in the dark? What needs to shift, change and transform in order for deeper support and stability? Transform darkness into light.
Ready to transform your relationship with money and vitality? I've got a special Diwali offer for you. Get the Details.
Monday continues the action-oriented power of Chitra and Vishvakarma. Ruling planet of Vishvakarma, Mars, may be pushing his agendas with force, anger, agitation and frustrations. Today, Mars and Rahu are in tight conjunction. Extra tenacity, force and strong convictions emerge. Notice where you are holding and resisting, keeping you from surrender. Attend to calculated, steady action steps. Where there is force, there will be frustration or challenge. Go slow and soften your steps today. Attend to physical body and self care attentively. Moon is moving into the final phase of the waning cycle. Turn your gaze inward and attend to your relationship with Self. Moon shifts into Libra late morning, joining debilitated Sun and Mercury here.
Today is the third day in the Diwali celebration and is dedicated to Hanuman, the much loved and revered monkey god. His strength, and devotion to Lord Rama, are honored today. May we each awaken to the compassion, strength and love within us!
Late Monday evening, Moon shifts to Swati Nakshatra, Vayu’s domain. Movement, shifts and changes arrive and winds pick up- inner and outer. What direction do they move you? Or do you stay rooted and grounded within?
Tuesday, Moon continues to move through Swati nakshatra and the wind god, Vayu, invites in sweeping changes. Does he offer you gentle breezes or powerful gusts? Can you stay firmly planted or are you swept away with his powerful and mighty movement? Attend to your inner winds today. Align with prana diligently and attend to its messages. Harness these inner winds and you will maximize your power and vitality. Moon arrives into the 15th tithi, Amavasya, today and moves towards complete emptiness. Mars and Rahu still travel in close conjunction with debilitated Venus in Virgo with them as well. Relationships, money and comfort may feel charged and intense. Anger, fixation, one-pointedness can emerge. Notice where you can drop, release and change.
Today, is the fourth day of Diwali. Light your lights!
Ready to transform your relationship with money and vitality? I've got a special Diwali offer for you. Early Bird Price End on Tuesday! Get the Details.
Just as Wednesday arrives, Moon shifts into Vishaka nakshatra and the dual god, Indragni expresses its support and co-creative energy. Connect, collaborate and share. Gather resources from others and find support in new ways. Today is Diwali! Celebrate life, vitality, light and wealth! Let Lakshmi nourish and support your with her many abundant gifts and resources! Read More.
The new Moon is at 11:47 CST while Moon transits Libra and Vishaka nakshatra. Moon is conjunct debilitated Sun (as it always is during the new Moon) as well as Mercury. There is a gentleness and deeply inward focus for this new Moon. The natural tendency is to turn inward during the emptiness of Amavasya, but debilitated Sun amplifies this inward stroke. Physical and spiritual bodies request attention and focus. Meditate, spend time in nature and deepen embodiment. New harvesting may take place with your inner realms so be sure to make space for listening through pauses and contemplation. It's a powerful time to clean up and attend to unfinished business on the emotional, mental and physical body levels. Let spirit support you with these shifts and changes.
Relationships and money are a big part of the transformations that are taking place during the new Moon and into the waxing cycle. Relationships and money are connected to Venus, who offers comfort, support and the necessary nourishment for life itself. Venus provides life support, shakti, and the necessary flow of love in order for us to connect and harmonize with life. We can't do this alone, it's a collaborative effort. Challenges, frustrations and blockages arrive to help you make adjustments and move towards new pathways of nourishment and support. What obstacles are you noticing? What is arriving that is asking you to take a deeper look? Attend to necessary changes and transformations at this time in order for more Venus support. Gather resources and tools to assist you with inner change.
The critic will have an agenda all its own in the waxing cycle. It's focus and fixation needs a good rattling in order to soften and offer more flexibility. Notice where you are resisting and refusing. How is your rigidity serving you? More importantly, what does your critic need? It may be hiding behind protection or a false sense of safety. Let it come towards the light and invite it over for tea and scones. Deepen your relationship with your inner critic- including all the stories it kicks up around shoulds, have-to's, supposed to's and musts. These illusions need to be awakened and cleared in order for growth to take place. Where are you trapped, locked in to old patterns of being and believing? Now is the time to liberate yourself and remove the veils. Keep moving towards deeper and deeper nourishment- the kind that invites in safety and support, stability and inner knowing. You'll know this nourishment when you are embodied and the felt senses are enlivened. This is not something the mind can offer.
Late evening on Wednesday, Moon shifts to its debilitation sign, Scorpio. Keep turning inward and attend to your inner landscape.
Thursday, Moon continues through Scorpio and its debilitation here provokes inward focus, vulnerability and sensitivity. As moon conjuncts Saturn during this transit, attending to the emotional and physical bodies is vital. In the wee hours of the morning, Moon shifts to Anuradha nakshatra and moves closer to Saturn. Watch for depression, feelings of isolation, grief, release and letting go that may instigate inner sensitivity. Connect with friends for support and stay out of minor details. Don't get sucked into the little things, try to keep a big picture focus. Find soft landings in the physical body. Track sensations and keep coming back to the inner landscape of your being. Find sensations of comfort, support, safety and ease- even if there are overwhelming challenges elsewhere.
Friday, Moon shifts to the last nakshatra of Scorpio early in the morning. As Moon transits through Jyeshtha, Indra arrives with his sensual support. His high level sensitivity provokes deep awareness on the sensorial level of our being. Rather than control and resistance of our senses, take a nourishing approach. How can you deepen your relationship with the sensations of your being? Rather than being ruled by these amazing human parts of the body, let them become resources for information, deepening nourishment and pathways to joy, balance and awakening. Less control, more compassion.
Ready to transform your relationship with money and vitality? I've got a special Diwali offer for you. Doors close Friday! Get the Details.
Mid morning on Saturday, Moon shifts into Sagittarius, crossing the tricky gap between watery Scorpio and fiery Sagittarius. Notice what is burning away and being released. As Moon arrives in Sagittarius, it lands in Mula, an often challenging and chaotic lunar constellation. Turmoil, shifts, changes and transformations are inevitable as this star pulls up roots and tills our inner soil. What are you gathering, bundling up- and how can you find a deeper release? Stand your ground. Find your center. Arrive in your core and avoid the overwhelm and challenges.
Debilitated Sun and Mercury are in tight conjunction in the coming days. Mind is sharp, but possibly fried. Watch for overactive critic and excessive focus. Avoid burn out with extra self care, meditation and time in nature. Go slow and pause as much as possible.
Sunday, Moon moves to PurvaAshada nakshatra, the domain of water goddess, Apas. Gain fluidity, flow and momentum today through attending to the emotional body. Harness its wisdom and creative forces by tapping into your feelings and attending to their messages. What is asking for your attention and intention? The mirror of money and relationships will provoke and instigate deeper inquiry. Pay attention to this awareness. Let passions stir nourishment and connection with desire and possibility. Sun and Mercury are still tightly conjunct, rendering the mental body combust, hot and fiery. Do less and accomplish more.
Late morning on Monday, Moon moves to the latter half of the Ashada constellation, UttaraAshada, and the Vishva Devas arrive to lend their support and assistance. When we align with right action, dharma, Nature aligns to support us with her power and abundance. The All Gods, or Vishva Devas, who rule this nakshatra, remind us of this need. Natural Laws are the supreme laws of the universe and keep us connected to Source, our ultimate alignment with life and spirit. Make you actions count today. Notice where you may be out of integrity- with yourself and spirit. Make the necessary adjustments to get the power you seek. Where is ego pushing you away from Source? What stories in the mind are keeping you from ultimate nourishment and divine connection? With debilitated Sun and Mercury in exact conjunction today, mental body work is necessary. Clean up, purify and burn away illusions and old chitta vrittis, mind stuff. Purify and transform through right relationship with Self and life.
Sun and Mercury make a frenzied shift into Scorpio almost simultaneously, on November 16th. More coming about this transit in my next post.
