Moon Mindfulness ::: Mind Your Moon
Moon in Virgo transiting UttaraPhalguni, ruled by Aryaman. Aryaman is one of the twelve Adityas, is a companion of the Sun, and rules over the ancestors. He gives sustenance, health and strength to the body. This is the second half of the Phalguni constellation- Purva is the other. Uttara means northern or higher vibration. Where as Purva has to do with relationships and the attraction and affection that comes with them, Uttara has more to do with those things that sustain a union and binds a contract for long term gain. In the Vedic sense, marriage and children are ways to repay the ancestors and sustain dharma. Uttara is in it for the long term, Purva is less concerned with sustainability. The Phalguni stars are literally about "making your bed and then laying in it." All metaphors apply.
The month of Phalguni in the Vedic calendar is in the spring, during the time of fertility. It is the best time for marriage- even the gods get married at this time. The Indian festival of Holi is celebrated at this time which has a connection to both Agni and lord Krishna: A nod to the marriage contract- a rite of karmic purification and love. Holi culminates on the full moon tomorrow (Wednesday).
Today is a good day for sealing contracts that you want to last. Plant seeds today (bija) and put your desires in the ground. Pursue dharmic works. Commit to your Self on a new level and take a step towards your goals.
