Moon is waning and is new on Saturday morning while in Scorpio. Let this week inform your emptying, your release, your letting go. These themes are alive and well right now as we have Venus, Sun and Saturn now in Scorpio.
Monday, November 17th
Today's Intention: Open and close the doors of your being with great intention.
Moon moves to Virgo at 01:39 am CST, joining Rahu here and getting direct aspect from Ketu; he is still transiting Uttaraphalguni. Aryaman continues to rule our day bringing with him an extra dose of Sun as well. He rules the second half of the Phalguni stars and helps us with sustaining creativity, fertility and co-creation. Aryaman is connected to the ancestors, to lineage and to that which sustains and nourishes in a lasting way; as steady stream of creative intelligence.
The next few days bring a certain intensity to our healing process. As Moon gets closer to Rahu, our emotional body connects deeply with our shadow self. Do we dance with these dark tides? Or do we get tossed around by them like a ship at sea? With three planets in Scorpio now, our depth, our shadow, and our darkness provides us with opportunity. Opportunity for growth and change, or opportunity for suffering and challenge. If you are going for change, navigate your ship by confronting what is. Pull from your depths and ask your shadow to share its gifts with you. Use your creative currents to help you navigate these waters. A three level check in will help with the identification process.
Moon transits into Hasta nakshatra at 21:30, joining Rahu here in this nakshatra. Bring on the dance of shadow and light! Recite the Gayatri Mantra for awakening the magic and use your hands to activate and enliven your creative channels.

Today's Intention: Step towards your darkness and ask it to share its gifts with you.
Saturn and Sun are in exact conjunction at 02:34 am CST. As I've been mentioning in my recent posts, this is an important time of embodiment and harvesting from the wisdom of the body. The cosmos are inviting us right now to honor and deeply listen to the wisdom of the body. Are you ready to listen? Saturn and Sun's conjunction is an expression of this need to harvest from our inner resources. Saturn is the structure of the physical body, while Sun is the illumination of our soul. Frustrations arise with this combination when we resist, push too hard and force ourselves. Saturn and Sun conjunction can share with us the experience of ultimate burnout. Now is an excellent time to work with embodiment techniques, work with the now, resourcing from the needs of the physical body moment to moment. Here is some help for your process.
Moon continues to dance through Hasta nakshatra, nearing exact conjunction with Rahu today. My suggestions from yesterday still prevail. How you choose to work with your shadow matters immensely. Rahu is our inner darkness, our demons (asura energy). He brings us our suffering, our illusion, our pains, our weaknesses and greatest challenges. Do you choose to negate this- or invite it in for deeper awareness? What can your own darkness tell you about your light? What gifts are lurking in your shadows? Let Savitr, the deity of our own dawning, and Hasta's ruler, help you bring in greater awareness today. Your courageous actions steps will be rewarded.
Moon and Rahu are in exact conjunction at 23:08 CST.
Moon moves into Chitra nakshatra at 23:29 CST.

Today's Intention: Transform through creative activation and creative action steps.
What transformation can you make today through creative activation, creative action steps?
Moon has crossed over Rahu now, and has entered into Chitra nakshatra. This enlivens Vishvakarma and the planet Mars, the planet of karma yoga. As his name suggests, Vishvakarma is a deity of creative action. He is considered the cosmic architect, creative beyond measure. The awakenings that were enlivened yesterday, are now given an opportunity to shift and change through our action steps. Creativity is an ideal channel to move our hindrances, our blockages, that which is keeping us from our channels of light and inner light resources. The alchemical and transformational changes possible through creative acts have been well researched and documented. Are you using the arts as a resource for your healing? Here's why I mix jyotish and the arts in order for maximum awakening.
Moon moves into Libra today at 12:15 CST, joining Mercury here.
Sun moves into Anuradha nakshatra today at 13:26 CST, and Mitra helps us illuminate details, connections, and nourishment through our friends and support systems. These may be the missing pieces we need to fully integrate our changes and transformations. Let Mitra support you in the coming days and attract what you need for nourishment, support and greater connection. As Anuradha is ruled by Saturn, the physical body is an excellent resource for finding greater inner support and stability. Work with your physical structure as a tool of insight and awareness. Embodiment is a crucial resource as a result. With Venus in Anuradha right now as well (both conjunct Saturn in Scorpio), creativity and embodiment work are an ideal combination for gaining deep and meaningful insights. This is an ideal time for putting the pieces together by using the body and the arts.

Today's Intention: Move with your powerful internal winds, and harness your greatness.
Sun begins to move away from close conjunction with Saturn but our diligence is still required with caring for our body, reducing burn out and resourcing with radical self care. Moon and Mercury are both in Libra right now and Mercury is in the same degree as Rahu and Ketu today, so additionally the mental body may be feeling frazzled and shadowed, worn down and worn out. This is yet another reminder to be caring for ourselves properly right now. Extra self care is essential. Be sure to use a three level check in to help you identify your needs.
Moon moves to Swati nakshatra at 00:52 am CST, inviting in Vayu, the wind god, and a layer of Rahu into our day. Prana becomes an essential resource today. Let your internal winds dictate your needs. Work with the breath, not against it. Moon moves to the 14th tithi, or Moon phase. As the Moon continues to wane, nearing complete emptiness on Saturday, we continue to work with the theme of release and letting go, each in our own way. Today might be an ideal time to focus on your exhale, your out breath. Is your release complete?
Here's a simple breath exercise to work with today: Inhale. What am I inviting into my body, my life? Exhale. What am I releasing from my body, my life?

Today's Intention: We all have to serve somebody.
Moon moves into Vishaka nakshatra at 01:34 am CST and the dual god Indragni as well as Jupiter enliven in order to share their gifts with us. Moon enters the final phase of its waning cycle today, the 15th tithi. Moon conjuncts Mercury today, so paying special attention to our mental and emotional body's today will be important. How do they inform each other? Self track and notice your dance between mental body and emotional body. How are they dancing with each other and what is your physical response to each of them?
Indra and Agni combine in Vishaka nakshatra to help us learn how to co-create, join forces in order to strengthen ourselves, and to master community and interrelating. "Two is better than one" exemplifies Vishaka's nature. There is a dual nature here, which helps us examine the mirror, the other, in our lives.
It helps us look at our polarities and the many different personas and masks we work with. What is your split personality? Your twin or alter ego? This is another one of your dances to be aware of today.
Moon moves to Scorpio at 19:41 CST, joining Saturn, Sun and Venus there. All four planets receive drishti from Ketu and Jupiter. Moon is in exact degrees with Saturn as the day ends. Pay special attention to getting rest, tending to your physical and emotional needs tonight.
Saturday, November 22nd
Today's Intention: Start putting the pieces of your heart back to together.
Moon moves to Anuradha nakshatra at 01:39 CST, inviting in Mitra and Saturn to our day. Sun and Venus have already moved to Anuradha, but Saturn in in Vishaka still. With Four planets in Scorpio right now, transformations and depth are part of our experience, carrying us through the coming waxing Moon cycle.
New Moon is at 06:32 am CST in Scorpio and Anuradha nakshatra. This new Moon invites in a certain mystical element, one that invites us to go into our depths and harvest our inner riches. But don't be surprised if you discover shadows instead of light, as this is the gift of Scorpio, the 8th house, and its ability to transform our beings. Read more about this new Moon and the coming waxing cycle, as well as a special Creative Ritual to help you work with your depth and presence.
With multiple layers of Mitra influencing us today, fine detail becomes our theme. Mitra is a deity that rules precision, exactness, focus and detail, while also being considered the "friendly star". This soft, mild and gentle star, allows us to probe into the details of our being, contemplate, honor and acquire the details we need to tend to our heart, and our emotional body wisdom. Today can help us put pieces together, to help make sense of the nonsensical, to attend and tend to our brokenness- an illusion of the shadow. Make your emotional body and physical embodiment your priority today and harvest from the wisdom of your own knowing.
Mars moves to UttarAshada at 16:47 CST, shifting our recent focus from sensing and feeling and taking action steps based on this ability, and into a focus on doing right and righteous action steps. The coming two weeks will provide us with a certain tenacity to achieve dreams, goals and desires. It will be through our action steps, our courage and our bravery though that we get the job done. A gentle reminder to not push too hard, to overdo your actions, and not to force outcomes. The motto of UttarAshada and the Vishvadevas, however is "some people have dreams, and others stay awake to make them happen." If you don't like your job, your relationships, or the direction your life is heading, remember that you are the only one who can change it. Now is the time like never before. Ask the Vishva Devas for their assistance.

Today's Intention: Dance with your senses and let them bring your awakening.
Moon hops into Jyeshtha nakshatra at 01:12 am CST, and Indra, the king of the devas, emerges into our day. The strength of Indra is expressed in his rulership of the rain, as he is the rain god, a most powerful force. Rain is essential for life, however, too much of a good thing can be harmful. On the human body level, Indra rules the prana running through our us, giving us our life force. He also rules our senses. The senses are powerful forces of being, of experiencing and of listening. Though a certain level of control is important to use with our senses, our main job should be working with them, not against them. Honoring the senses and deeply listening to their messages can truly bring awakening. Rooted in the senses is our animal awareness, the gift of our humanness. Do we listen to these gifts or negate, suppress and dishonor them? Let your senses be guides for you, just learn how to assist your guidance system effectively. Today is an excellent time for a 3 level check in and some somatic work. Meditation can be helpful to get the mental body in check. Dive into your being and harness your greatness.
A three level check in will help with the identification process. Need ome extra guidance and clarity? Schedule a session with me. Plan your week in tune with nature. Never miss a planetary update. Sign up for my weekly newsletter.Was this post helpful? Please share it with a friend! Thank
