Moon Mindfulness ::: Mind Your Moon
Today is day five of Navaratri and the second day of Maha Lakshmi. Moon is waxing, in Tithi six (shasti) ruled by Venus. Moon is transiting Mrigashirsha nakshatra in Gemini. Moon is receiving drishti (a glance/aspect) from Rahu and Mercury (which rules over Gemini) is currently debilitated in Pisces. Watch for miscommunications, lack of mental clarity and confusion especially since the moon is in a fickle nakshatra.
Mrgashirsha is ruled by Soma (also called Chandra/Moon) thought the ruling planet is Mars. Soma is the ancient Vedic name for Moon. The Moon rules all the nakshatras which are really telling us where the Pranic flow of Nature is being directed at that given time and thus tells us what the emotional response will be as a result. The state of Nature's Pranic flow at any given time will show the direction of Pranic flow within us and therefor the mental/emotional energetic flow that is effecting us at that time. (The Nakshatras directly relate to the Mano-maya-kosha and the Prana-maya-kosha). Whatever is being magnified in the cosmos will be magnified in us- microcosm is macrocosm and macro is micro.
What is the moon but a reflection of the Sun? What are we but a reflection of the Sun and Moon? In the West, information is slanted toward the Solar energy, the masculine, the gross/tangible realms, the ego. Vedic knowledge is soli-lunar and recognizes the essential value of the feminine, that there is no life without her. Both energies are required for balance, harmony and life to exist.
The Sun is currently exalted in Aries which will amplify the energy of Sun for all of us. Let us not neglect our Moons, our inner intelligence, the intuition, the emotional currents that go unseen. The hidden realms are no less powerful, but easier to push aside and forget about.
On this day of Lakshmi, tap into your Divine Intelligence, your Somagenic epicenter, the creative flow, let it carry you forward and beyond. Lakshmi holds coins that continue to flow effortlessly from her hands as a reminder to us that the energy of abundance and plenty is ever-flowing and unending. It is the eternal nature of the Goddess/Ma and is always available to us. How big is your coin purse and how much can you hold?Like · · Share
