Intention for the Week: Find a dance that integrates your fire and water. Bring awareness to the merging of your polarities. Let new life emerge as your separateness becomes unified.
Moon is waning, deepening introspection and inner exploration. Moon transits through Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces and into Aries this week. Venus has entered its exaltation sign Pisces now and both Sun and Mars have gained degrees after changing into new signs this past week. This increases their potency.
The week begins with Moon and Mercury conjunct, both receiving drishti from Saturn, Rahu and Jupiter. Use the first part of the week to get structures in place, work with timeliness, order and organization. These details are essential for growth and expansion at this time. The mental and emotional bodies are in a strong dance together, especially on Monday, which will require that you listen to more than just the mental body. What feelings are arriving? Be sure to check in with all three levels of your awareness. Do a three level check-in for deeper harvesting.
As Moon and Mercury separate, we get more room for feelings, and less tension between the emotional body and mental body. Pay attention to the messages of your feelings. What feels supportive, what does not? What is bringing you a sense of nourishment and support? Where are the challenges and frustrations?
Shivaratri is on Tuesday the 17th. This is a time of deep silence and strong potential. It is the marriage celebration of Shiva and Shakti, a symbolic union of wholeness- when the absolute unmanifest, conjoins with the pulse of life force energy. Masculine and feminine merge and create life- and the ability to manifest becomes amplified. From this place of union, we can ignite the power of being, the power of life.
Transformations abound right now- inner and outer. Are you paying attention to polarities in your life? What dualities are you aware of and what is needed for their integration?
This is a powerful time for meditation and reciting the Mrityunjaya Mantra:
oṁ tryambakaṁ yajāmahe sugandhiṁ puṣṭi-vardhanam ǀurvārukam-iva bandhanān mṛtyormukṣīya māmṛtāt ǁ
New Moon is on Wednesday the 18th at 15:47 PST while Moon is in Dhanishta nakshatra. Want to know more about this new Moon and how to maximize the coming waxing cycle? My 2015 Moon Wisdom Calendar is almost here! Get the details.
Sun shifts into Satabisha nakshatra on Thursday while the Moon transits through this lunar constellation as well. Now waxing, but still quite small and fragile, the Moon will play an important role in our emotions today. Take note of how strong feelings play into the day. It is about healing though- if you can get close enough to the intensity, you can find a resource for your healing work. Are you willing to step towards the fire?
Knit together opposites and integrate separateness. What binary thinking patters are keeping you from feeling supported? How is your critic, your inner judge holding you back from feeling the nourishment of life?
Friday and Saturday bring opportunities to work on our relationships and interactions. As Moon transits through Pisces, he joins exalted Venus, Mars and Ketu here. This combination is an invitation to work with our passion in new ways, to integrate our warrior and our romantic self, our fire and water. It may feel impossible, but if you can get your warrior to go with the flow, you're making progress.
Moon crosses the tricky junction between Pisces (water) and Aries (fire) on Sunday and the themes of integrating our polarities continue, yet fresh starts are amplified. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac and Aries is the beginning, offering a sense of change and transformation to us. Pay close attention to the sensation of the new and make it poignant.
What fresh start are you embarking on? What are you inviting into your life right now? What desires are you moving toward?
Let this dawning carry you through Monday and invite in support and assistance from your relationships.
