Moon Mind :::
10.15 - 10.16
Moon transits Aquarius in Satabisha nakshatra and receives drishti from Rahu and Jupiter. Watch for shadowed thinking and cravings as well as self-righteousness. Satabisha is ruled by Varuna, the "all seeing" god with a thousand eyes. He looks for wrongdoing and punishes for mistakes. His competitive nature can feel harsh at times. But ultimately his goal is to uphold Natural Law. Ask your self where you are scrutinizing too much- whether it is towards your Self or others. Can you let go, surrender, lose some of the judgment, and find more balance? Sometimes "knowing too much" is the real issue. Today, ask your Self where you can let go and let god.
Later in the evening on 10.15, Moon moves to Purvabhadrapada, ruled by Ajaikapada, a form of Lord of the Dance, Lord Shiva. Ajaikapada is a Rudra (chaos/storm god) who stands on one leg and is driven to purify, maintain rituals, and rules over endings. He wants tapas and penance- your hard work- in order to get results. He is one-pointed and seems to balance the impossible.
On 10.16 Moon moves to Pisces and the wisdom finally settles in. The Jupiter influence on the day offers expansion and a new "knowing" not yet visible until now. You can thank the ancestors for offering some of this vision. Moon moves to Uttarabhadrapada mid afternoon. Ahirbudhnya, the serpent of the deep, will help with your inner exploration and self- expansion. New awareness will come from the depths, the hidden realms at this time.
Sun, however is weak, so your new awareness may come from a feeling of vulnerability or from the dark depths of your soul. Get used to it. The next month of debilitated Sun brings more opportunities for growth as we uncover, shed, and peel back the shadows and darkness from our seemingly endless depths. With the passing of Navaratri, it is now open season for inviting in the darkness. Welcome her with open arms and see if you can't find a new relationship with her. The chaos and destructive forces are just as essential as the light and laughter.
