Moon Mindfulness ::: Mind Your Moon
Moon transits Libra in Swati nakshatra. It is Hanuman Jayanti today- Hanuman's birthday celebration- as well as a partial lunar eclipse. Full moon is at 14:57 CST and the eclipse is right after. Though it is not visible from the US, it is still advised to stay out of it, to eat lightly, and use this time as a spiritual time. See this week's horoscopes for more.
Swati nakshatra is ruled by Vayu, the wind god and also the planet Rahu. Moon is transiting Libra where Rahu and Saturn are sitting as well- Saturn is currently in Swati nakshatra, Rahu in Vishaka (read more about this energy via my article). Rahu and Saturn together create storm energy, and Vayu is known for his stormy breath. Though movement with Vayu is inevitable, it's not always clear what direction he might take you. We can take Vayu to be the pranic winds within the physiology, Nature's winds associated with the weather, the Rudra energy of the storm gods and the change/calamities that they bring, the breath of the gods, impeller of life itself (prana), and also the essence of speech.
Hanuman was the son of Vayu and is known for his immense strength, courage and ability to overcome obstacles through his power and big heart. Vayu and his forces can take you far, but it is essential to adjust your sails properly in order to travel in the direction you wish to go. The rest is deep surrender.
