This Week's Intention: Move closer to your inner landscape.
Notice your need for silence and slow steps. Honor this with meditation, sacred pause
and strengthening your relationship with Self. Watch, listen, notice.
Some weeks intensify what we need to confront more intensely. With Shivaratri, Venus's transit into Aquarius, a new Moon and a Solar Eclipse opening the delicate eclipse portal for the coming weeks, this is a time to clarify your needs, intentions and self care resources in order for greater inner stability. The days to come may provoke inner and outer challenges more acutely. Are you listening to or resisting the messages? Shivaratri will inspire a deep inner silence which can support your awakening process. Feed your silence with sacred pauses and meditation. Remember that any discomfort is a resource. What needs to change- within you and your choices- in order for greater ease? Some doors need to close. Others need to open.
Monday, March 7th
Moon in 14th tithi
Just as Monday morning begins, Moon leaps to Aquarius, joining Mercury, Sun and Ketu here. To intensify the instability of the day, Venus moves to Aquarius mid morning, joining this powerful grouping of planets. Retrograde Jupiter, Rahu and Mars all give their gaze. The week begins with a lot of energy and excitement, as well as vulnerability and sensitivity. Stay grounded and get embodied. The closer you can stay to your body wisdom, the more clarity you'll have.
As Moon continues through Dhanishta nakshatra until close to noon, resource from your inner light. Once Moon shifts to Satabisha, an emotional body shift takes place. Challenge and struggle may appear, casting darkness on the day. What do you need for greater inner support and stability? Align with your resources and redirect your focus towards what nourishes you. It's important to mind your health diligently when Moon passes through Satabisha. Eat nourishing foods, be mindful of the environments and relationships you choose to be with today. If it doesn't serve you, set it free.
Venus moves to Aquarius at 07:18 am PST where she joins a packed house with Moon, Mercury, Sun and Ketu. This cycle is an opportunity for liberation on all four levels of your being- physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Mars, retrograde Jupiter and Rahu give their gaze, intensifying the change process. Expect frustrations and challenges to emerge in the coming weeks- especially since the eclipse portal will be fully activated simultaneously.
Relationships, money, creativity and feminine issues will be charged, ripe for transformation. How can you embrace your divine feminine qualities more actively? Where can you invite in more listening, juicy creativity, receptivity, sacred pauses and the wisdom of your feelings and emotions? It's vital that you let your feminine voice speak and share with you. She will tell you what needs to be released and how to liberate yourself more consciously. The release is inviting in space for the new. For more nourishment, more creativity, more abundance, more wisdom, more vitality. Your ability to allow the release will determine what you will have space to invite in to your life and being.
There are endings being enlivened. Trust this process of endings. This is your liberation happening. Can you surrender to this process more fully? Resisting, holding back, avoiding this process will only increase the pain, challenge, hurt and suffering you experience. Find ways to surrender, allow and let go. What are you releasing and closing to? What are you inviting in and opening to? Actively look at your polarities, your shadow and light, masculine and feminine parts, in order to find balance and integration.
The themes that begin with Mercury moving to Aquarius the week prior, spark the trends for Venus’s movement as well. She will help instigate and increase the fruits of your creative visions- if you’re willing to release, let go and create space for the new.
A strong sense of liberation arrives with this cycle. It will be a process of shedding, releasing, letting go of attachments and unnecessary burdens- on the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual body levels. Unshackle yourself and consciously use resources to support this radical process of moksha. What is weighing you down? Holding you back? Keeping you from your magnificence? If you don’t have space for the new, you won’t be able to create more of what you want. Consciously use this cycle to carve out sacred, intentional space in your inner and outer being.
As the Moon enters the 15th tithi of the waning cycle, Amavasya, around 21:00, Shivaratri oficially begins. Shivaratri supports the deep release process enlivened right now. This ancient celebration of Lord Shiva, is traditionally a day of deep silence. It is from this level of being, of consciousness, that all possibilities are available; the Absolute, the fully alive and awakened state of universal oneness and creative intelligence.
