Moon Mindfulness ::: Mind Your Moon
Moon is still in its own sign of Cancer transiting Aslesha nakshatra until 17:03 CDT when it moves to Leo and Magha nakshatra. Ruled by the deity Sarpa, Aslesha has to do with navigating deception, illusion and over confidence as well as the positive and negative attributes of snake energy.
Snake energy can take several forms- like the expression of the lunar nodes, Rahu and Ketu. Rahu is more the Sarpa energy of Ahlesha, where as Ketu takes on the naga energy which is connected to the Pisces nakshatra Uttarahadrapada. Though as worldly beings, not everything Rahu brings to us is a negative, the desires of Rahu and Ketu are different and thus manifest for us as opposite extremes. Understanding the nature of these two "planets" will help you navigate their illusive natures as well as their possible effects on you.
The Sarpa energy is about uncovering, unveiling and navigating the realms of deception, illusion, occult and mystical studies. Not a bad thing if used properly, and if there's enough awareness to support the sustainable expansion in other ways. If not, we are left with what I refer to as a "mind F*ck." Unraveling a "mind F*ck" can be a full time job. This nakshatra is about diving deep, yet staying out of the delusions and illusions that can weasel their way into your mind. Stay out of the trickery today, avoid snake charmers and snake poison. Get lost in the transcendent instead through meditation, dance, art and bhakti.
Mercury moves to Rohini nakshatra where Venus is as well today at 12:29 CDT. Mind and creativity move into more harmony and synchronization. Direct this flow towards Self expansion and note what begins to activate for you- especially once Moon moves to Leo later today and most of tomorrow.
