Moon Mindfulness ::: Mind Your Moon
Moon is waning (dark half) and now in Pisces transiting PurvaBhadrapada nakshatra. The presiding deity here is Ajaikapada, or the he-goat standing on one leg- also a form of Lord Shiva. The balance it requires to stand on one leg is a nod to tapas, purification, which can arise from this nakshatra. It also is a reflection of single pointedness, literal balance, overcoming obstacles and hardships, and physical power (a nod to Rudra energy). The energy here has a foot in two worlds- the earth and the astral realms. The symbol is a funeral cot, but only the front half. There is preparation here for purification and endings.
The energy of this nakshatra is neither here nor there. Try to find some grounding today. Try to keep one foot consciously connected to the Earth- to Source- even though you may be trying to find balance with the impossible. The planets are increasing our purification right now. It's getting hot and intense and the coming week increases these feelings. Use today to center for your week ahead. Pause. Find stillness amidst the chaos. Stand in your fire, but try not to get burned. The only thing to lose is ego.
