Moon is waxing and just passing the half way point of the bright half phase this week. We have high potency in the planets right now with exalted Jupiter, exalted Saturn, exalted Mercury and Sun in its own sign of Leo. Midweek, Mars moves to its own sign, Scorpio. This is a time to activate!
Monday, September 1st
Today's Intention: Attention and intention will take you far. Look within and be gentle with your self and others. Take alone time in order to listen to your inner messages.
Moon transits its debilitation sign, Scorpio, in Anuradha nakshatra, receiving drishti (gaze) from exalted Jupiter and Ketu. Moon is waxing and in the 7th tithi (phase) today- the half way point in the bright half of the cycle. Debilitated Moon, softens the Moon, turns it inward and creates high sensitivity as well as strong intuitive potential. Slow down to listen to your inner messages.
Anuradha nakshatra is ruled by Saturn and Mitra, who rules friendship and fine detail. He gives support, companionship and represents allies and assistance; he protects us. Mitra rules the day and is in constant renewal and transformation; he likes travel and changes in location just to keep things interesting. His penchant for fine detail offers us the ability to see beyond the surface, to notice nuances and enjoy finery. At times, Anuradha can also heighten the critic, as it's a star that sees so much.
Today, attend to details and tackle to-do's. If you find your self lost in the small, fine details, zoom out and remember the big picture as well. Connect, share, and be pleasant to others. Share the abundance that you are naturally. Bring presence to your critic and don't let it attack others, or your self. Be gentle with what you see today, inside and out.

Today's Intention: Be mindful of your mind games and your senses. Tend to overwhelm and extra sensitivity with self nourishment and self care.
Mars is sandhi, at the edge of Libra, ready to jump into Scorpio. The ongoing tension between exalted Saturn and Mars may intensify in the next few days as planets leaving signs tend to increase their effects. If you are feeling extra frustrations with the stop (Saturn) and go (Mars) energies, surrender to Saturn's need for slow and steady!
Moon moves into Jyeshtha nakshatra at 07:37 am CDT, enlivening Indra and Mercury. Indra is the king of the devas and brings strength to all his endeavors. He is particularly connected to dharma, prana (our life force energy) and our senses. As Mercury is enlivened here (and currently exalted conjunct Rahu) the mental body gets an extra kick. Debilitated Moon in Scorpio creates extra sensitivity with the senses. Find ways to nourish the mind today without letting your senses get overwhelmed. Protect yourself from the onslaught and bombardment of too many screens and sensory overload. 3 level check in?
Wednesday, September 3rd
Today's Intention: Cut, clear and purge. Lighten your load and simplify yourself and your life- in mind, body, emotions and spirit.
Moon jumps into Sagittarius and Mula nakshatra at 07:01 am CDT, while Nirrti and Ketu incite sudden change and disruptions. Saturn gives drishti to the Moon here and may create an extra level of frustrations- so be aware that extra time will be needed to accomplish tasks today. With Mars poised to jump into Scorpio, teetering at the very edge of Libra now, our actions may feel misaligned or nonexistent, increasing agitations. Plan for calculated action steps and go slow.
Nirrti is famous for her dishevelment and adharma. She uproots and disrupts, bringing disturbances with her. Today is an ideal day for cleaning, purging and letting go on the mental, emotional and physical levels of life. Clean out the closets of your mind and your home. Find ways to simplify and cut attachments. Feeling pains and suffering? Look here for what needs to be cut the most.
Exalted Jupiter makes his big leap into Ashlesha nakshatra at 11:18 am CDT today; Mercury and Sarpa, the snake god, enliven. Let your mind blossom and unfold in the coming months. Need a reminder about this expansive and enlightening Jupiter transit? Read part 2 of my Exalted Jupiter article here.
Thursday, September 4th
Today's Intention: Let your creative flow activate the flow of abundance; the abundance in and around you, flowing towards you and through you.
Moon moves into PurvAshada nakshatra at 05:45 am CDT and our internal waters desire more flow with Apas and Venus's encouragement. The flow will require effort and direction however. How are you directing your creative energy? Your cleansing and purifying capabilities? Are you tending to your emotional body wisdom and its needs consciously and directly? See if you can find the valve on your heart to open the channels of love, then let more love flow towards you and from you. Where does your life need more flow and fluidity? What needs and self care can help you fill your cup more fully? Drink in the abundance of life and the nectar available to you.
Revisit my new Moon creative ritual for some creative activation.
Mars finally steps into its own sign of Scorpio at 15:27 CDT and gets drishti from both Ketu and exalted Jupiter here. The long drawn out tensions within Libra over the past many months (both with the Saturn/Rahu conjunction and more recently with the Saturn/Mars conjunction) finally dissipate. Take a breath. Take a pause. Give gratitude for new action steps! Need a reminder about the dance of Mars in 2014? Read more here. This transit of Mars through Scorpio is one of depth and insight. Move towards your desires and be aware of where you're holding back out of fear. Don't let the past haunt you, let it inform and inspire more conscious action steps. Take bold steps and activate your desires in the coming two months during this transit! Wisdom comes from your depths. Strengthen your inner trust and sensitivity.
Mercury moves into Hasta nakshatra at 17:58 CDT. Let the exaltation of Mercury, the mind, and Savitr, the god of dawning and awakening, open doors for you in the coming weeks. Start something! Listen to the sparks of imagination and the intuitive guidance coming to you. Trust the light within you to show you the way. Use Gayatri Mantra for activating magic and miracles.
Oṃ bhūr bhuvaḥ svaḥtát savitúr váreṇ(i)yaṃbhárgo devásya dhīmahidhíyo yó naḥ prachodáyāt
Friday, September 5th
Today's Intention: Direct your creative energy intentionally in order to maximize your efforts. Don't do too much. Instead, do less with more greatness.
Moon moves to Uttarashadha nakshatra at 03:53 am CDT and the all-gods, the Vishvadevas, arrive on the scene as well as an extra layer of Sun energy. At 09:20 am, Moon moves into Capricorn, receiving drishti from exalted Jupiter and Rahu. The Vishvadevas insure our success and prosperity and give us resources in order to find our talents and fortune.
Sun is strong in Leo right now and the planets are potent in general. Use this time wisely. Be alert and be poignant in your actions right now. Listen to the messages and internal guidance that you are receiving. Get quiet and check in with your inner knowing. Trust your sensitivity and harvest with the 3 level check in.
Creative power is very high now that Venus has moved to Leo, joining Sun there. Don't waste your energy flitting around, doing too much, and in too many different directions. Concentrate your efforts, your energy and power in order maximize this time period. Be direct and focused and don't burn yourself out with too much work. Temper your hard work with self care.

Today's Intention: Take three intentional steps today. Activate with careful action steps and listen to your internal messages.
Moon moves to Sravana nakshatra at 01:31 am CDT. Vishnu, akasha (space) and Moon are the qualities of this lunar constellation. Vishnu and his travels through earth, sky and heaven (the three realms), gives us triples and threes today. How can this be a metaphor for your actions, visions and dreams? Plan, take action and enjoy!
Use your day of Saturn to attune and attend to your body. Get embodied and use the wisdom of your body to offer insights and necessary balance. Listen carefully to the inspiration and omens that arrive along the way. The akasha element inspires transmission of knowledge and wisdom through hearing. Are you listening? Revisit one of my workshop MP3's for inspiration.
Moon moves to Dhanishta nakshatra at 22:48 CDT.
Sunday, September 7th
Today's Intention: Let wealth and abundance grow within you by holding onto the somatic sensations of nourishment and success. Then use this felt sense to create your dreams.
Moon transits Dhanishta nakshatra and the Vasu Devas come out to play with a kick of Mars. Boom! Moon is expanding and now in the 13th tithi, nearing fullness. Energy is high and maximized as we have three planets exalted and two in their own signs. The Vasus bring wealth, fame and shining to us; they come from jyoti (light) and are the originators of jyotish (the science of light). If you desire wealth, then worshiping the Vasu Devas is important as they are connected to prosperity. Get creative today and let your creativity activate manifestation of your desires on the material plane of existence. What do you greatly desire, want and need in your life for more harmony, satisfaction, comfort and nourishment? Make your list- but painting it, singing it, and dancing it is even better. Go beyond the mind and get it attuned to the emotion/intuitive body and the physical, somatic wisdom within you. How does your abundance feel in your body? Let this feeling intensify and grow. Keep coming back to the somatic sensation of your nourishment, support and fulfillment. This is the Vasu Devas in action!
OM namo bhagavate vasudevaya
