Moon Mindfulness ::: Mind Your Moon
Moon has entered Leo and is transiting Magha nakshatra, ruled by Pitr, the ancestral star. This lunar constellation can relate directly to the father and the father's lineage (Pitr shares linguistic roots with the word paternal) and also the ancestors in general. Connected to karma and authority, Magha is also ruled by Ketu, so we must include elements of moksha, cutting, destruction, illumination and also Ganesha (removing obstacles) into the cosmic mix. Ketu's current placement dictates that there may be insights into one's lineage today- as it affects you individually. You may feel endings, destruction, dishonesty, or gratitude, appreciation and upliftment for your family and father. Look for kernels of gratitude even amidst the rubble of life.
We are affected by the seven generations of ancestors that came before us. We affect seven generations to come. What is the legacy you have been gifted with because of their struggles and hardships, desires and dreams? What are you gifting your family line for generations to come? Light a candle on your altar today in remembrance for the light within, the eternal flame that continues to burn. You are because of all that has come before. You are awakening your lineage. You will pass this torch of brightness on. Give a special thank you to your father today.
