We have just passed the new Moon and Winter Solstice, and now the Moon begins its waxing cycle. The week begins with a sense of deep emptiness, release, and if we are paying attention, the depth of our darkness. It is a magical time in many ways and full of vast potential.
As the light begins to slowly return now to our days, I encourage you to be very intentional about what you are filling your cups with- mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. This is a time of potency and we can truly maximize it with intention and action steps.
Join me for my workshop, The Essentials for Manifestation and maximize your intentions for 2015!

Today's Intention: It takes two to tango.
Moon continues after the new Moon + Solstice through Mula nakshatra, with Sun here as well. The cutting and clearing continues until Moon shifts into PurvaAshada at 07:42 am CST, enlivening Apas, the water goddess and Venus. As Moon shifts into Apas's domain, we suddenly have three levels of water happening cosmically within Sagittarius. Both Venus and Mercury are also in PurvaAshada right now as the congestion of planets through Sagittarius continues.
There is a dance occurring between Venus (three planets in PurvaAshada) and Jupiter (ruling planet of Sagittarius) right now that is effecting our material and spiritual bodies. Venus represents our asura (demon) energy, which is highly tethered to the earth plane and our manifestation process here. Jupiter on the other hand is knowledge based, connected to Akasha (space) and represents our deva (god) energy. We may be feeling this inner battle playing out within us between good thoughts and bad thoughts. Our wants and desires vs. what we are able to manifest. We may also be experiencing this as a battle of what is "right" and "wrong" going on within us. Some may literally be experiencing battles with demons in more confrontational ways. This is the battle of light and dark, shadow and light, our polarities. We can't get rid of either one, so now is the time to learn how to integrate these very different parts of ourselves.

Today's Intention: Harness the fire and let it guide you towards your awakening.
Moon shifts into UttaraAshada, at 05:40 am CST, enlivening the Vishvadevas, or the "all-gods". The Vishva Devas are essentially the Laws of of Nature personified as devas. This nakshatra helps us enliven our good qualities, and find success through our light.You will likely feel the shift towards hope, possibility and greater support today. Maximize this and get clear on your goals and intentions for the new year. Sign up for my Essentials for Manifestation Workshop and transform your obstacles into clarity.
Moon shifts into Capricorn at 11:08 am CST, joining exalted Mars there. Rahu and Jupiter give their drishti as well. The Dance of demon and asura in our emotional body continues. Whenever we have a conjunction of Mars and Moon, we have the opportunity to tap into a surge of our life giving passion. Often we feel this as rage and anger, but what is under this raw anger is raw passion, life force; divine life force from the energetics of MA. Use this power to take a powerful action step today that will move you closer to your dreams, goals and visions. Often we have to first encounter all that is not working, all that is holding us back from our true potential, in order to get to our true desire and need. I encourage you to dive deep, beyond the rage and look for the gift of your passion. What is your greatest need and desire? What are you willing to do in order to get this manifested?

Today's Intention: Make your steps count!
Moon travels through the sacred 28th nakshatra, Abhijit, in the early morning hours before it shifts into Sravana nakshatra at 03:29 am CST, joining exalted Mars in this nakshatra as well. The power and intensity of the emotional body is provoked today as Vishnu and the Moon are enlivened. The theme today is taking three steps- one for each, earth, sky and heaven- as Vishnu did. Let his "three steps" be metaphoric for you today. What are you stepping away from? Where are you standing right now? And what are you moving towards? With Moon and Mars in exact conjunction today, it is an ideal time for powerful action steps. What steps are you taking right now to maximize your life, your potential, your possibilities? For those of you who are truly ready to up level your new year, please join me for my Essentials for Manifestation Workshop! My early bird rate ends tonight at midnight!!

Today's Intention: Keep your light on.
Moon has crossed over Mars now and jumps into Dhanishta nakshatra at 01:19 am CST, enlivening the Vasu Devas. These are the eight shining stars that bring light, prosperity and illumination to us. They help us transform, change and manifest through their light, helping us truly "shed light" on situations and experiences. Moon is still closely conjunct Mars until later in the day, so be mindful of the emotional body heat and charge available today. Tending to your needs, and honoring yourself through moments of self care will go a long way in keeping you cool and calm, and to keep your light shining. Is it time for a three level check-in?!
Moon jumps into Aquarius at 12:17 CST, the domain of Saturn and Rahu, but is out of the gaze of any of the planets. Moon moves to Satabisha nakshatra at 23:18 CST.
Friday, December 26th
Today's Intention: Prioritize your life and put your self first.
Moon transits Satabisha nakshatra in Aquarius, which is a nakshatra ruled by Varuna and Rahu. This star brings an energy of punishment and a necessity for following Natural Laws. Varuna has a thousand eyes and he sees everything- all wrongs especially- and doesn't have a problem showing you your fate. It's especially important to mind your health on Satabisha days and mind the laws of Nature as well.
For some, today may feel like a big let down after days of celebration. The collapse after the expansion so to speak. Some may feel this in their body and experience the necessity for getting back on a more healthy and nourishing diet. Some may feel this as mental overwhelm as the to-do lists get longer. Others may feel this express itself as emotional depletion; too much of everything. Make today a self care day. One that nourishes the mental, emotional and physical bodies. I encourage you to use an exercise known as "emptying the head" by writing down all that you have to do on a piece of paper. Circle the top three to five priorities for today and get them done.
For those who are ready to make 2015 truly count, join me for my three hour Manifestation class this Sunday! I'll be sharing resources, tools and my transformational process with you in order to make this your best year yet!
Moon moves to PurvaBhadra nakshatra at 21:32 CST.
Venus moves to UttaraAshada nakshatra at 23:02 CST, inviting in the Vishva Devas and breaks up the trifecta of planets in PurvaAshada. As Venus shifts into the domain of the Vishva Devas, an element of Sun increases, as well as our intensified desire for transformation, change and increased greatness. The coming weeks provide us with the ability to move closer to our desires, by following dharma, passion and our dreams. We will have to make changes in order to make this happen, so be sure you are adjusting your actions accordingly. As the saying goes "some people have dreams, and others stay awake to make them happen." Make your actions count right now and get focused on your transformation process.
Saturday, December 27th
Today's Intention: Keep one foot on the earth and one foot stepping towards heaven and your dreams.
Moon transits PurvaBhadra nakshatra, inviting in the blessings of Ajaikapada and Jupiter. Aja is a Rudra (those who have immense strength) but is also considered a form of Shiva and a form of the Sun. It is known that Aja has the ability to cast off evil, and thus this is a nakshatra of purification. Often PurvaBhadra brings challenges, but as a result of these hardships, we are given opportunities to transform and change. The strength and power of the Rudra energy helps the transformation process occur.
Today, retrograde Jupiter will be reminding us to re-visit some parts of ourselves on the mental and emotional body levels. If we are paying attention, we can start our transformation process and take steps to find greater balance, awareness and well being.
Mars moves to Dhanishta nakshatra today at 13:34 CST and will transit the abode of the Vasu Devas for just under three weeks. The Vasu Devas bring us light, illumination and vision. They offer us prosperity and the ability to manifest on the material plane of existence, thus they are very materialistic in their support. Quite literally, "the world dwells in them and they dwell in the world." The Vasu Devas originated from jyoti (light) and spark the light within Jyotish. The coming weeks will bring increased opportunities for manifesting our desires, inspiring creativity and helping each one of us shine from the inside out. Because Mars is transiting this nakshatra, the light we express and the light we receive will be a direct result of our action steps! Here's to your powerful action steps and to the increasing light!
This is an excellent time to create clarity about how you want to move forward in your life. Are you ready to make 2015 your year of transformation and manifestation? Then you're ready for my Essentials for Manifestation Class. This is the last day to register!
Moon moves to Pisces at 14:26 CST, joining Ketu here and into Uttarabhadra nakshatra at 20:07 CST.
Sunday, December 28th
Today's Intention: Unwrapping your gifts requires your willingness to dive into the depths of your being.
Moon transits Pisces with Ketu and receives drishti from Rahu and Jupiter. As Moon moves through Uttarabhadra nakshatra, the serpent of the nether realms, Ahirbudhnya, and Saturn are activated. We are given an opportunity to dive deep today. To go deeply into our subconscious terrain and transform our challenges, misfortunes and obstacles. Ahirbudhnya is a Rudra (much strength and power) as well as a Naga- a serpent that is connected to Ketu and our awakening process. With Moon and Ketu conjunct in Pisces right now, opportunities arrive for us to awaken and transform quickly. Be intentional with your obstacles today. How are these challenges really gifts in disguise? What are you willing to do in order to unwrap these gifts? It is a perfect day to be in my Essentials of Manifestation Workshop. We will be doing just this! I will be sharing with you all the resources and tools I use to transform my obstacles into gifts, in order to create your one precious and powerful life!
Moon moves into Revati nakshatra at 19:04 CST and Pushan is activated. Nourishment and prosperity increases through this nakshatra as Pushan is a protective force who helps us on our path, our life travels. Moon nears exact conjunction with Ketu and our sensitivity increases. This is a time to be checking in with your emotional body wisdom and resourcing from your increased feelings. Use this time for awakening to your deep needs and get the nourishment you need.
