Moon Mind :::
Tuesday 10.1, Wednesday 10.2
Moon transits Leo in Magha nakshatra. Ruled by Pitr, this nakshatra is connected to the ancestors, and often specifically the father. Today, honor your ancestors, your lineage and those who have walked before you- either by silent remembrance, or through elaborate displays of gratitude. Venus is sandhi (transiting the gap) and in Vishaka nakshatra still. Indragni rules this nakshatra and reminds us of our altar offerings, alchemy, transformation and the spark of fire that creates life giving change. Avoid heavy foods today and excess sweets. Burn a candle on your altar and invoke the gratitude for your full range of experience in life. This is a grande lila- life drama, and we have a cast of characters to work with.
Moon moves to Purvaphalguni in the early morning on 10.2 as Venus shifts into Scorpio and debilitated Mars goes sandhi. Relationships, sexuality, sustaining our relations, and our karmic patterns take center stage and will be a theme during Venus's transit through Scorpio this month. Be aware that hidden, suppressed and forgotten parts of ourselves will be at the root of our concerns and calamities. Are you willing to do the work to uncover the mysteries? To peel back another layer of the veil? To experience your full range of emotion and your love debts in order to advance? Now is the time to be courageous in your pursuit of self- liberation. There is no hiding from the truth, but we can still dance with compassion for ourselves and others.
