The week begins with a waning Moon in the sixth tithi (phase). Venus has just entered Leo and Mercury is now in its own sign, Gemini. Both are still sandhi, in weak degrees, getting situated in their new signs. Jupiter is also sandhi, in the gap, moving from his exaltation sign, Cancer, towards Leo next week.
Monday, Moon transits Aquarius and into Purvabhadrapada nakshatra late morning. The Moon is nearing another complete cycle and the ruler of this nakshatra, Ajaikapada, is helping us with certain release. Themes arrive around completion and letting go, while simultaneously helping us find balance with seemingly difficult situations. Step wisely today and make your actions intentional.
Moon shifts to Pisces just before midnight, joining Ketu here. Both receive gaze from Rahu and Jupiter. Seek balance with spiritual and worldly desires over the coming days.
Early Tuesday morning, Moon shifts to the latter half of the Bhadra constellation, Uttarabhadrapada. The serpent of the netherworlds, Ahirbudhnya, helps us look below the surface and find the answers we are seeking. It takes excavation and willingness to dive deep. Let your inner waters help you transform and change. Avoid stagnation.
In the early hours on Wednesday morning, Moon moves to the final nakshatra in the zodiac, Revati. The ruling deity, Pushan, is a powerful ally of support for our path. He brings assistance, protection, nourishment and safety for our journey. Let him provide for you. Are you receptive to his offerings?
Just as Thursday begins, renewal arrives as Moon jumps through the tricky gandanta (gap) between Pisces (endings) and into Aries (beginnings). This junction is also a shift from water to fire, release into energized action. Today may feel like a fresh start and offer powerful opportunities for renewal. Take a new action step and make it intentional.
With Moon outside of any other planetary gaze, there may be a sense of possibility and a feeling of awakening. Yet Aries is ruled by Mars and Sun is considered exalted in this sign- both are conjunct Mercury in Gemini currently- which offers a certain tension, heat and tenacity for our mental body. If aggravation or fear arrives, see how spirit can help you surrender and release, while being mindful of the needs underneath the feelings.
Bharani nakshatra ushers in Friday, as does its deity, Lord Yama, he who restrains. He is fierce yet vulnerable, strong yet sensitive. He holds us back where we need to regain a sense of composure, contraction, or where we might benefit from some restriction. Ultimately, Yama can help us regain a sense of balance if we need some reigning in. His ways are not comfortable however, so notice where his restrictions may be met with resistance. Ultimately, refusing his ways is not possible, as he brings the final declaration of our karmas after life. Listen and learn while you're alive.
As Moon shifts to Krittika nakshatra on Saturday morning, Agni takes over, bringing heat, change and transformational qualities. Moon becomes exalted late morning as it enters Taurus. Emotional swells and high inner tides arrive. Listen to your emotional body wisdom. There is a certain care and protection available today that must be attended to. Can you feel extra protection, support or guidance available? Declare your desires and let the universe hear you loud and clear! Go after what you truly want, but more importantly what you truly need.
Moon moves to the highly creative nakshatra, Rohini, just after midnight and ushers in a potent Sunday. Maximize the potential available today and start creating the life you want! How can you manifest more potently? Get clear on your desires and how you want to create the life of your dreams. Shoot for the stars! There is power, strength and wisdom available right now, while extra support may be felt from spirit. Ask and yee shall receive.
Jupiter moves closer to the edge of Cancer, preparing to leap into Leo and Magha nakshatra on the 14th. The year long transit of Jupiter in its sign of exaltation, Cancer, is ending. However, the changes are already occurring. Pay close attention at this time to themes that connect to Leo, the 5th house and the Sun. Simultaneously any final lessons and understandings from the Jupiter in Cancer transit will be intensifying. This is a time of crystalization, where the final offerings of the Cancer cycle are being shared with us. Read more about the effects of Jupiter in Leo.
