Moon Mindfulness ::: Mind Your Moon
Moon in Mula Nakshatra today in Sagittarius. Mula is ruled by Nirrti, the goddess of adharma (against dharma) and her husband is adharma it self. Nirrti has three sons: Bhaya (fear), Mahabhaya (great danger), Antaka (causing death). She goes against Natural Law. Nirrti is a rakshasa (demon) and causes us to suffer when we obey her. Mula's symbol is a bound bunch of roots indicating our ability to be bound by Nirrti's spell, to feel stuck as a result, and shows us where we may literally be suffocated or bound to death her self. She can bring us our awareness, but we have to be willing and able to act in our own defense, to untangle her snares, to perform right action even when it feels impossible.
Moon is being aspected by Saturn today, which offers an element of suffering to our emotional, intuitive self. Saturn likes things done in proper order and wants us to be aligned with time (Kali). When we do so, health problems can be prevented.
Today, put on pot of kitchari. Walk in the sunshine. Clean out an old closet (literally or metaphorically or both). Face your fears, dangers and demons. See where you are bound. Watch for the resistance of what you know is best for you- that's Nirrti binding you to adharma. When Moon is in Mula, we get these messages more readily- like using a magnifying glass to look at our life. Be your own detective.
