This Week's Intention: Turn your attention inward and find the gems you seek within.
Monday begins with a ripe Moon perched at the edge of Libra and shifts into its debilitation sign, Scorpio, just after midnight. Moon transits Vishaka nakshatra, the two branches, symbolizing a gateway of triumph. This dual ruled nakshatra contains the wisdom of Indra and Agni, who offers success through collaboration and co-creation. Two heads are better than one. Use this metaphor to find greater support today. As Moon shifts into Anuradha nakshatra late morning, this theme continues to emerge with the "friendly star." Ruling deity, Mitra, can bring us connections and support through friendships and alliances. We may also feel challenges from the same as Moon conjuncts contractive Saturn as well. Sensitivity abounds! And though the Moon is almost full, it's actually a very tender, inward Moon which invokes self care and attention to vulnerability.
Tuesday ushers in a full Moon at 09:18 PDT while Moon is in Scorpio and Jyestha Nakshatra. Jyestha nakshatra is ruled by Indra, the king of the gods. He is responsible for releasing the water from the clouds, allowing it to rain, often using his weapon of choice, the thunderbolt. Indra rules our senses and reminds us to use discernment with them, rather than being ruled by all of our urges and desires. Much like the clouds, our tears are released and are a cleansing offering of Indra as well.
Scorpio is the Moon's debilitation sign and because Moon will also be conjunct retrograde Saturn at the time of the full Moon, themes for the coming cycle invite certain pressures- which can intensify the emotional body effects we experience. This combination however will provide deep release, like a valve that needs to be opened, inviting in a sense of letting go and waves of grief to surface.
As the Moon begins to wane on Tuesday, our reflection continues to turn inward and reminders, imagery and ideas from the past resurface. What pieces need to be responded to? Which ones need to be released?

Moon jumps to Sagittarius and Mula nakshatra early Wednesday morning, inviting in Nirriti's chaos and calamity. She helps us become unbounded, to release where we are holding on too tightly. Expect the unexpected with the dark goddess emerging today. Sudden, unexpected shifts arrive. Where are we holding on when we should be letting go? What space can we create with a deeper release? Today is well suited to gentle cleansing, releasing and rejuvenation practices. Rest, restore and relax but don't push or force actions and outcomes.
Thursday morning Moon shifts into PurvAshada nakshatra, inviting Apas to rule over the day. As the water goddess, she provides purification, as well as deep feelings and continuous movement. Mars gives his drishti to the Moon today, offering both fierce anger and passion, while simultaneously giving us an opportunity for deeper connection to MA if we listen carefully. There is a certain sensitivity today and deep feelings are available to us. How do these feelings move you and stir you to respond?

Moon dips into the latter half of the Ashada constellation, UttarAshada, Friday morning and the Vishva Devas are enlivened. The symbol of this nakshatra is an elephant tusk which denotes a certain connection to Ganesha, the remover of obstacles. This is a softer, gentler star than PurvAshada, and its aim is for support and assistance. Where can you allow more support into your life? How does it show up?
As Moon shifts into Capricorn midday, he moves to Saturn's sign and receives his drishti as well. Rahu, Jupiter and Venus also give their gaze, providing increases, changes, expansion and contraction. Can you go with the flow?
Early Saturday morning, Moon moves into Sravana, Vishnu's territory. Vishnu is intimately connected to hearing and the transmission of information, especially the sacred variety. Like akasha, space, he is everywhere. What are you expanding towards today? The wisdom you seek is seeking you. Soak it up.
As Sunday begins, Moon moves to Dhanishta nakshatra and the Vasu Devas are enlivened. These Devatas help us find the rhythm of life, our own beat. The symbol here is a drum, which physically connects us to the pulse, the heartbeat within us as well as the pulse of life. What beat are you hearing and connecting to? How are you connecting to the pulse of life today?
Moon shifts to Aquarius late afternoon, a Saturn ruled sign, but out of the gaze of the other planets. Let yourself dance to your own rhythm, your own beat.
Monday begins with Moon shifting into Satabisha nakshatra, Varuna's domain. His symbol is an empty circle and he is connected to restraint. Varuna brings strong resistance at times but may be helpful with creating healthy boundaries. Are you resisting or avoiding? Are you conscious of this or pushing vital nourishment away?
