::: Moon Mind :::
Moon transits its own sign of Cancer in Pushya nakshatra, the nourishing star, receiving drishti (gaze) from Venus and Saturn. Moon is in the 4th tithi and waning (krishna paksha). Mercury rules the day (4th tithi) with an influence of Venus as well (it's Friday). Brishapati however rules this nakshatra and is another name for Jupiter. His benefic nature empowers us to cultivate awareness of ancient knowledge and supports our growth and well being.
The fact that Saturn is the ruling planet of Pushya gives the balance of both expansion (Jupiter/Brihaspati) and the contraction energy of Saturn- necessary to find ultimate liberation. In other words, you don't get too much of a good thing, just the right amount! Brihaspati has the ability to rule positive thoughts and conquer the asuras (negative thoughts), giving harmony to the mental/emotional bodies, while the connection to Saturn offers strength with the physical and spiritual bodies as well. Today is a holistic day, one that affords us the opportunity to be hopeful and positive about the days to come. Enjoy the frequencies that remove obstacles.
Mercury moves to Sagittarius today (see below).
As per this week's horoscopes :::
Mercury joins Sun in Sagittarius this week on 12.20 at 09:12 am CST. Both Sun and Mercury in Sagittarius receive drishti (gaze) from Saturn, Mars and Jupiter. There will be a desire to expand, yet contraction principles at play simultaneously. Frustrations, mental confusion, anxiety and frenzy can come if we push too hard, overextend ourselves or do not effectively re-calibrate our intentions. Things will likely take longer than you'd like to pan out, so adjust for this. Best use of your time and efforts will be through goal setting, making to-do lists and using methodical action steps. Set your goals and aim high, but work backwards effectively in order to get the results you'd like. Less is actually more right now. Plan for upheaval and change as some restructuring takes place on an inner level.
Moon transits its own sing of Cancer in Ashlesha nakshatra, ruled by Mercury and Sarpa (the cosmic snake), and in the 5th tithi. Venus begins its 36 days of retrograde motion today and kicks up change for us in our relationships, with wealth, business and how we relate to life (see below). The uprooting and mental changes begin today- possibly marked by some agitation or feelings of dissatisfaction. It is an excellent time to "look before you leap" and to calculate your movements and desires. Today, the winds of change are blowing. The direction you are going in will be determined by intention, focus and your dharma.
As per this week's horoscopes :::
Venus begins its retrograde dance on 12.21 at 15:52 CST while in UttarAshada nakshatra and continues to move backwards into Sagittarius until 1.31.14 . The nakshatra UttaraAshada is ruled by Vishvadeva; good character and "doing the right thing" are paramount here. The Vishvadevas are literally "universal principles" or the Laws of Nature, and bring us reminders of how to act in alignment with life in order to bring more harmony. Use this reminder of "good conduct" in our relationships during this retrograde cycle as Venus is a strong planetary focus for us currently (ruling planet of Libra where both Saturn and Rahu sit).Recent set backs in relationships, creativity, romance, passion, wealth and money will get a chance for... >>> Read the Rest Here>>> http://www.swatijrjyotish.com/1/post/2013/12/horoscopes-for-the-week-of-1216.html
