Moon Mindfulness ::: Mind Your Moon
Moon transits its debilitation sign, Scorpio and is in Anuradha nakshatra. Ruled by the deity, Mitra, and the planet Saturn, there is a connection to friendships and details- the kind that Saturn offers. Saturn is equated with time, hard work, effort and grief and certainly knows scrutiny and finest awareness. Mitra literally means friend, ally, companion and is supportive and sustainable. It is through long-term friendships, companions and those relationships that we put effort into, that give results. Yet there is no iron clad guarantee that anything will last. Mitra people do what it takes anyway- because friendliness is second nature to them. As a result, there may be ups and downs with friendships and the people they feel close to considering Saturn is associated with this star. Anuradha/Mitra people may put more into a friendship then they get in return, or they give everyone the cold shoulder knowing it will end in disappointment anyway. The friendships that last, will be the ones that make it through the thick and the thin. These are blessings indeed. Mitra people also tend to get big favors from special people. Consider it a boon for your hard work.
Today Moon gets drishti/aspect from Mars which will stir up some of the agitation and perhaps anger around our relationships (especially because Anuradha is ruled by Saturn and Saturn and Rahu are in Libra together being blown around and purified by Vayu and Indragni). You may feel a rub, a roar or an explosion depending on your own planets/nakshatras. On an opposite extreme, you may also feel the emotional blessings of lineage, especially mother today, due to the transits. Mercury Sandhi (in the gap) moving towards Aries- communication is vulnerable.Take it all in stride. Ride the emotional wave. Dance it, rather then letting it dance you. Be grateful for what is alive and well in your life.
