Moon Mindfulness ::: Mind Your Moon
Moon still transiting Scorpio (its sign of debilitation) but has moved to Jyestha nakshatra. Moon moves to Sagittarius and Mula nakshatra at 21:36 pm tonight. Today is the 6th day of the waning moon (dark half).
Jyestha is ruled by Indra, king of the Devas. His thunderbolt is his weapon, giving a nod to his power, and his connection to the weather. The weather can't be controlled, it is a natural phenomenon, and it holds immense power that we are literally controlled by, hence Indras awe inspiring greatness. To worship prana is to worship Indra it is said. The wind is nature's prana, similarly we have an internal winds/prana that give our bodies life. Deepening our connection to the life force, deepens our connection to Nature and all her power- within and externally. We also gain mastery and a deeper awareness of our senses and sensory powers with this heightened awareness. Prana is the link to all expansion of Self and consciousness. Take note of how you use it and what your relationship truly is with the life force. May the force be with you.
Mercury has finally crossed the gandanta threshold from Pisces to Aries and is now in Ashwini nakshatra. For many of us that was a mentally exhausting passage! Due to its Sandhi (gap/weak degrees) status as well as its conjunction with four other planets also in Aries (plus drishti from Saturn and Rahu), it is likely to be challenging still. Be aware that mental drain, anger and outbursts, headaches, exhaustion, mental heat are possible. Take precautions to avoid physical/mental calamities. Plenty of fresh air, circulating the prana, personal space, and keeping cool, are all essential right now. Walk it out.
