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.
