Moon Mindfulness ::: Mind Your Moon
Day six of Navaratri and last day of Maha Lakshmi.
Moon is in Gemini transiting Ardra nakshatra. Ardra is ruled by the storm god, Rudra, who was born from the Creator's anger. He is connected to storms, calamities, natural disasters, sickness, disease and intense emotion. This momentum is connected to Prana- life force energy. Rudras are connected to the Maruts (winds) both internally and externally. This can be expressed as the fierce winds of Nature or the five types of Prana within the body. We can also associate Rudra with healers, since they are near disease, sickness and suffering at all times. Disease is usually connected to Prana in some capacity. The strength of Rudra is a powerful force- positive or negative. Movement brings change regardless of the circumstances. How we direct our sails will determine which direction we go.
Rudra nakshatra is ruled by Rahu and currently Rahu sits with retrograde exalted Saturn (causing debilitation) in the sign of Libra. This combination creates storm energy. Rahu gives drishti today to Moon sitting in Gemini which is ruled by a debilitated Mercury transiting Pisces. The Rudra energy of Rahu and Saturn gives drishti to Aries where the fiery exalted Sun, Mars (in own sign) and Ketu (explosions/sudden shock) and Venus (in an enemy's sign) sit. Be careful and have compassion for your Self and others. Lay low and turn this energy back onto the Self. Turn up the fire on your Sadhana.
On this last day of goddess Maha Lakshmi in the nine days of Mother Divine celebration, may we remember to spread abundant love, and may it flow continuously from our hearts and minds. May our coin purses be filled with Lakshmi's Divine Treasures and may we share this energy freely. Om Shanti*
