This Week's Intention: Take slow, steady steps. Be intentional with your movements.
Make self care and inner reflection a priority. Land in your heart.
The week begins with a ripe Moon, finishing its transit through Pisces- instigating endings and release for the days ahead. Moon transits Revati nakshatra and the mental body requests attention and deeper nourishment. What cords need to be cut, severed and released for more clarity and receptivity? Where are you still holding on when you should be releasing? What stories is the mental body stuck in and repeating? Set yourself free. It's a perfect time to be working with self development resources that help you unravel the mental body programming. Note where the mind is stuck, resistant and rigid.
Early afternoon on Monday, Moon jumps to Aries, crossing the challenging gap between Pisces and the beginning of the zodiac. The Moon is almost full and as it moves through the tricky gandanta gap between Pisces and Aries, inner and outer shifts take place. This transition point is particularly challenging because Pisces brings us endings and release, while Aries invites in beginnings and renewal. There is usually some big, necessary change that must be attended to when planets pass through this point. As Moon moves from watery sign, Pisces, into the fire sign, Aries, expect a strong emotional body shift. The Moon is expanded and full anyway, our emotional cups are at capacity, and there is a necessary release finding its natural course. Notice where you are holding and gripping. What can be softened and released?
The full Moon is in Aries during the early hours of Tuesday morning, while Moon transits Ashwini nakshatra- the first of the 27 nakshatras. Full Moon is Tuesday, October 27th at 05:04 CDT while Moon is in Aries and Ashwini Nakshatra. This particular constellation is connected to rejuvenation and healing. There is ample potential and possibility available here. Ruling deities, the Ashvini-Kumara twins, are experts in Ayurveda and the healing arts. Among their healing resources are music and the arts- as moving creative energy is vital for both health and well being, while increasing joy and vitality.
This full Moon reminds us to take slow, meaningful steps. It's a time to turn inward, despite the fullness of the Moon- which usually invites an external focus. In the cycle to come, we must attend to the vital release process and the transformations invited through letting go and endings. Removal and release of relationships and that which no longer serves you in nourishing and supportive ways, must be severed and set free. Radically let go of those who do not have your needs and deep nourishment in mind.
In the waning Moon cycle, notice what is falling away naturally and forcing you to attend to release. If you're gripping tightly and refusing to surrender, there will be challenge. First, look to see where you need more support and nourishment in your life and what challenges continue to present themselves. These are old stories that need your deeper attention. Liberate yourself from fear, old stories, paradigms and mental body blockages. You are as powerful as you allow your self to be. What is holding you back and keeping you from your full potential?
Just before noon on Tuesday, Moon shifts to Bharani nakshatra and sensitivity takes on a new flavor. Ruling deity Yama requests restraint in order for deep transformation. Where can you create clarity and safe boundaries for yourself in order to get your needs met? Especially in relationships and with those in authority positions. Take your power back.
Wednesday continues with Yama's forceful energy and great sensitivity. The ability to sense and feel everything intimately is truly foundational for deep transformation. Let Yama help you release and respond to your needs for self care and support. If it feels like too much, it probably is. Make adjustments. Late morning, Moon moves to Krittika nakshatra and Agni continues the theme of transformation, but does so with purification and burning away impurities. Heat and fire are necessary for alchemical changes to take place. Where's the heat and what is transforming as a result? How can you avoid getting burned while allowing the changes to take place? Take care of digestion today and support Agni carefully. The physical body will need extra care and caution today. Rest, self care and go slow. Early afternoon, Moon shifts into its exaltation sign, Taurus and emotional body fullness is intensified. Today requires conscious attention to all four levels of our being. Be very intentional with your inner work, as there is intensity for emotional, mental, physical and spiritual bodies occurring simultaneously. Moon is exalted until evening and then shifts to its mulitrikona degrees.
Mercury is at the edge of Virgo and is now sandhi, in the gap between signs. The mental body is also delicate and needs extra support at this time. Track mental body stories diligently. Take time for meditation and grounding in the wisdom of your body in the coming days.
Late morning on Thursday, Moon moves to the potent and creative constellation, Rohini. Ruling deity, Lord Brahma, is the ultimate manifestor and full of creative, life giving potential. Moon is also immensely creative and loves to connect, share, co-create and harmonize. As Moon moves through Rohini, let your creativity be amplified. What are you creating in your life? Who and what are you connecting with? What is your intention for co-creation and leaving a legacy of your gifts? Today, envision and create ways to illuminate your path with deeper nourishment and support. Activate and align with your inner passion and creative powers.
Mercury finally lands in Libra at 09:59 PDT, joining debilitated Sun here. After months of moving through his favorite sign, Virgo, he shifts to the relational and connective sign of Libra. Mercury is naturally a connector and a creator, a communicator and a generator, while also signifying thinking and imagination. This cycle will instigate a lot of inspiration and thinking- which will increase the imaginal, the spiritual, new ideas and increased creativity. Simultaneously, it will be too easy to stay in the head and out of the body, which can cause issues with the physical as well as manifestation. It's vital to cultivate presence and deeper relationship with the feeling level and emotional body wisdom, as well as the physical body and its ability to increase stability and support, grounding and landing. Vata and excess air can increase during this cycle, which can result in feeling ungrounded and unstable. The Mercury Sun conjunction will become closer and tighter toward the end of this transit, climaxing on November 16th while both planets are in Vishaka nakshatra. New paths will present themselves and old ones will need to be re-evaluated. Can the old still support you and your needs, your desires and visions? Co-creation, extra support and new alliances may emerge. Seek out others who align with your visions and goals. Call in new resources in order to help your path take shape. Sun and Mercury continue to track each other closely in tight combustion, moving simultaneously into Scorpio on the 17th, joining Saturn here. Get your extra support and resources in place before this transit and prepare for deep inner work in the cycle to come.
Friday invites more creative impulses and increased play, passion and vitality. Emotional body wisdom is potent today. As Moon shifts into Mrigashirsha nakshatra early morning, deeper nourishment arrives if we let it. Ruling deity, Soma, increases the divine nectar of life. Drink it up and dive in! Where can you find greater abundance, receptivity and resources? Where are you resisting this juicy blossoming of life? Ruling planet of this constellation is Mars, who is now in close conjunction with Venus. Together, they stir the pot of passion and intense feelings. Let the heart swell with enthusiasm and use this to attract more of what you desire. Notice where you are resisting and contracting, keeping the nourishment from seeping into your being. If you want more of the good stuff, you have to make room for it. If it doesn't feed your soul, get rid of it. Late afternoon, Moon shifts to Gemini, the creative, connective sign, ruled by Mercury.
Just as Saturday arrives, the Moon moves to the powerful and tempestuous nakshatra, Ardra. This constellation has a lot to do with emotional release, intense feelings, and heightened passion. Calm and quiet the storm by finding safe and healthy outlets for emotional release. Let go, purge, express and let it all fall out. What can you do to move the emotions out and through? Where are you resisting or neglecting your emotional body? What has been left unexpressed for too long? Move your inner waters and let it pour out of you through healthy channels. Mars is at the edge of Leo now and sandhi. He's extra passionate and fiery. He may cause intensified expression and passion, anger, emotional charge and reckless actions. Where are you forcing and pushing unconsciously? Where are you cutting and pasting over your physical and emotional body needs? Keep landing back in the physical body wisdom and ask it what it needs. If there's challenge or obstacles hindering your progress, this is a reminder to slow down, stop, listen more carefully. Mars and Venus are still in tight conjunction. Feelings are heated and passions are high. Pause before speaking or acting.
Jupiter's nakshatra, Punarvasu, arrives early Sunday morning with the balm that soothes our ailments. Aditi and her abundant resources bring us solutions, possibilities, wisdom and awareness that the previous day couldn't support. The pot that Ardra stirred, will now settle so we can find some soft landing and more gentle steps. Resources arrive today to soothe and support. What wisdom are you receiving which helps you understand, expand, grow and find greater balance? Pause and be still or you'll miss her abundant messages and feelings of unity. Late evening, Moon jumps into its own sign, Cancer, increasing harmony and emotional balance. Let the veils of illusion drop away.
Monday continues with Moon in Cancer and transiting from Punarvasu into Pushya nakshatra in the early hours of the morning. Expand and contract, open and close, find balance between your polarities. Seek harmony within and track the breath closely today. How can you land in your heart more intentionally? Bring your focus to your emotional body wisdom, your feelings, and deepen your connection to home, grounding and well being. The wisdom you seek is within.
