Moon Mind Calendar
Monday, September 8th
Today's Intention: Connect with your inner waters- now full and expanded. Attend to your swelling tides and nourish your self through right action. Listen to your emotional body wisdom.
Moon transits Aquarius and Satabisha nakshatra. Here in Aquarius, Moon receives drishti (gaze) from Venus and Sun in Leo and also from Mars in Scorpio. Ruled by Varuna, the guardian of universal law, Satabisha is connected to unseen (invisible) obstacles and punishment of wrongs. It is through Rahu that these "wrongs" are found. Aquarius however is ruled by Saturn and Rahu so there is a dualism here. And though Varuna is considered an Aditya (one who provides sustenance and support), he does so in a very Saturn-like way which may feel harsh at times.
Today, follow the rules of Saturn and attend to your health and wellness. Let the waters within you flow and align with the Laws of Nature. Keep things simple, attend to self care and be mindful of your health. If you are feeling overwhelmed, do a three level check in and try to attend to your underlying needs for support, comfort and nourishment.
Moon moves to Purvabhadrapada nakshatra at 17:02 CDT.
Full Moon is in Aquarius and Purvabhadrapada nakshatra on September 8th at 20:38 CDT. The feeling you receive from the Moon may be both depth and pressure as well as increased creativity, curiosity and innovation at this time. Aquarius is ruled by Saturn and Rahu which can bring a dualism, a push and pull, as well as polarities. This full Moon brings with it both a desire and a need to attend to our shadows, our haunts and our illusions. The coming waning cycle will be just that- an opportunity for us to face our demons and our challenges with new insights, possibilities as well as hope. This work may directly and indirectly connect to our lineage matters and the pieces that were forcing your attention/intention over the past waxing Moon cycle. Be attentive to the matters of emotion and heart and look for symbols and messages that cross your path. Read more about the wisdom of the Full Moon and how to work with the coming waning Moon cycle.
Tuesday, September 9th
Today's Intention: Find steadiness through flow. Go to your depths and linger. Swim with the currents- not against them.
Moon transits Purvabhadrapada nakshatra until mid afternoon. Apply the wisdom of Ajaikapada to your day. Take slow intentional steps. Honor your path, your dance of life. Dance, walk, and honor your feet. Slow and steady steps will provide balance and awareness as you move forward.
Moon moves into Pisces at 08:59 am CDT, joining Ketu here. Both receive drishti from Rahu and exalted Mercury in Virgo, as well as exalted Jupiter in Cancer. The inner tides are high right now because the Moon is still very full. As Moon moves into the water sign, Pisces, expect some emotional flooding. Let your inner waters move and move you. Are you listening to what your emotions are telling you? Be attentive to the needs under the tears and inner pressure.
At 14:20 CDT, Moon moves into the latter half of the funeral cot, Uttarabhadrapada, ruled by Ahirbudhnya. This serpent deity rules the depths, our mystical realms within. As a Rudra, great strength is available through Ahirbudhnya as well as the removal of misfortune and calamity. Today is a great day to see your depths, touch your limits, but move more gently into them. Surrender to your own flow and rhythms. Trust the cycles to move you naturally- without force.
Mars moves to Anuradha nakshatra at 18:03 CDT and Mitra enlivens his dance through Scorpio. Friends, details, connections, as well as movement and travel get activated now. Doorways that were previously closed may be opening now. Connect with the right people in order for greater successes. Expand your horizons, reach for your depths, befriend your critic and ask for the support you need to thrive. This is possible with your diligent action steps!
Wednesday, September 10th
Today's Intention: Be gentle with your mind, body and emotions today. Extra self care and TLC are essential for tending to your sensitivity and receptivity.
Moon moves closer to Ketu today and enters Revati nakshatra at 12:00 CDT. Revati is ruled by Pushan, a nourishing and supportive deity who offers support and prosperity for our paths. Ask him for protection on your journey and he will grant you nourishment. When making an offering to him, make sure it does not need to be chewed; he loves milk and porridge.
Inner tides are high, the Moon is in a water sign and nearing Ketu, the planet of restructuring. Ketu and Moon bring increased sensitivity, which may be felt through agitation, anger and frustration, resulting in sudden tears. Touch in with your inner waters and your emotional body. A three level check in is essential periodically today. Connect with your emotional body directly and ask it what it needs. Find gentle ways to offer yourself some loving care. Take alone time if necessary and recharge with meditation, a warm bath or some creative harvesting. Use my Full Moon Creative Ritual for insights.
Thursday, September 11th
Today's Intention: Make self care your top priority today and fill your cup of inner strength. Do at least one thing to nourish your mental body, emotional body and physical body today.
As Moon conjuncts with Ketu exactly at 04:46 am CDT, yesterday's suggestions for extra self care and being mindful of sensitivity increase for today- even as Moon begins to separate from the south node. Continuing through Revati nakshatra until 10:11 am CDT, Moon then jumps into Aries and Ashwini nakshatra. This is a tricky junction point (gandanta) in between water (Pisces) and fire (Aries). It's also the movement of Moon into a symbolically hidden realm (12th house matters and Pisces) into the most visible sign of the chart, 1st house and Aries. Be aware that there could be a dramatic shift internally and externally as the Moon shifts- especially because the Moon will be receiving direct gaze from exalted Saturn once in Aries.
Ashwini is ruled by Ketu and the Ashwini-Kumara twins, who provide healing and rejuvenation through the healing arts. Strong like a horse, the twins, can provide physical strength and power to us if we use their tools for healing. The arts, music, Ayurveda and rasayana treatments are all part of their tool kit. Today, rejuvenation and self care can go to a deeper level for lasting nourishment and support. Attend to your inner and outer needs diligently today. Let the strength of the Asvini twins help you go the distance.
Venus moves into Purvaphalguni nakshatra at 11:16 am CDT. With Sun here as well, we get double the potency from this fertile constellation. Creativity is heightened, as Bhaga offers us fortune and generous opportunities for wealth and prosperity. Increase your flow and passion with arts, dancing, music and creativity right now. Venus is chasing the Sun through the sky these days which is causing our creative waters to increase their passion with the arts, relationships and our sense of self. Fortunately, Sun and Venus are staying about 10 degrees apart for now which keeps the creativity high, without it getting scorched. Use all this extra Venus for greatness.
Friday, September 12th
Today's Intention: Use art and creativity to transform and transcend. Let go and heal.
Multiple levels of Venus are enlivened today! It's Friday, day of Venus, and Sun and Venus are now both in Purvaphalguni nakshatra- ruled by Venus. To add a bit more Venus to the day, the Moon moves into Bharani nakshatra at 09:00 am CDT, also ruled by Venus.
Bharani is ruled by Yama, lord of death and king of dharma. He weighs our karmas at the end of our lives and directs our transition into the afterlife. He connects to self control, restraint and morality. Working with Durga can be helpful to overcome the obstacles of Bharani and to help us transform our challenges into learning and growth. Bharani days give us opportunities for "deaths" and transformational experiences.
Today, create, share, flow, connect, take strong action steps and move your self today! Get physical and embodied. Don't be surprised by tears, intense emotions, but do work with them consciously. Be willing to navigate the dance between mental, emotional and physical bodies. Have you done a three level check in? Take your harvesting into movement and creative exploration. Get your paints out and explore your emotions. Use water color to work with Venus directly.
Saturday, September 13th
Today's Intention: Clean and clarify from the inside out. Stoke your inner flames gently.
Moon moves into Krittika nakshatra at 08:34 am CDT, enlivening the Sun and Agni on this day of Saturn. While Moon is still transiting Aries, it receives drishti from Saturn which increases sensitivity in our emotional body. It also activates the need for greater embodiment and physical body movement in order to process our emotions more directly.
As Agni is the fire of life and responsible for transformations and turning food into our life nourishment, he is an important part of our ability to "digest" life, our experiences and our environment. Tend to your inner flames today and stoke them gently. Fire brings sudden change and cuts attachments so use today intentionally for clearing, cleaning and transforming.
Sun moves into Uttaraphalguni at 09:11 am CDT, moving into the latter half of the Phalguni stars. Aryaman offers sustenance, health and physical strength. Let him provide you with the fruits of your labors. Connect, create and relate. Ask the ancestors to guide you with your momentum and building prosperity in the coming weeks. Shine and attract with your light. Attend to and nourish your body.
Moon jumps into Taurus at 14:35 CDT and exalts in its position of full expansion. Here, Moon receives drishti from Mars directly and Rahu. This adds a certain intensity to the Moon's experience. Watch for heat, aggression, intense inner flames. You may feel your inner tides increase, expand and swell or extra steam being created! Work directly with your emotions and inner waters and cultivate presence with their needs. Are you befriending your emotions or pushing past them- missing their messages?
Sunday, September 14th
Today's Intention: Unleash your wild creativity! Spread your wings and fling paint towards the stars. Let your breath move you. Listen to your innate greatness and use your gifts.
Moon moves into Rohini nakshatra at 08:55 am CDT and is considered mulitrikona now as it transits through Taurus. Receiving drishti from Mars and Rahu increases the intensity of the Moon and felt senses right now. Are you attending to your needs or pushing past them?
Rohini is an intensely creative star. Ruled by Lord Brahma and the Moon, this nakshatra provides palpable creative potential. It was Lord Brahma after all who created the universe from his navel. His wife is goddess Saraswati, the illustrious goddess of wisdom, art, music, and knowledge. Children are also connected to Rohini since creating them is the epitome of human's creative potential and a way to honor the ancestors.
Create, move, share, and get inspired today! What brings you joy and harnesses your inner creativity? Dance and sing, draw and paint. Connect and co-create. Let your inner light shine and expand your horizons with your creative acts. Re-visit my Creative Ritual if you need a jump start.
