Moon Mindfulness ::: Mind Your Moon
Moon has entered Aries and is in Ashwini nakshatra. Moon is slowly gaining it's strength and power as it begins waxing (bright half). Ruled by the Asvini Kumara, twins who are doctors to the gods. This nakshatra has to do with rejuvenation and healing, Ayurveda and rasayanas. In Ashwini, rasayanas and healing tools span a spectrum of possibilities. Music, art, intuitive insight and creative skills are enlivened here.
The symbol is a horses head, a glorified mode of transportation in the ancient days, but also a nod to the senses. Often the five sense are expressed in the Ved as being driven by five separate horses. They each have a will of their own and must be reigned in or they will have their way with you! You will end up being dragged around tirelessly by the crazy desires of the senses if you don't learn how to hold the reigns properly. For those who understand good horsemanship, you know that befriending and nurturing the bond with your horses is required for crucial understanding between horse and rider, but you also understand who is the rider and who is the horse. The analogy is the same for the senses. Befriend, guide, nurture, but remember who is holding the reigns!
Use the power of the horse to move you in the right direction today. Travel a clear Path. Choose experiences and actions that bring you health and longevity. Go for illumination and insight. Remove what is harmful and toxic. Use your expression and creativity to steer your horses in powerful directions. Let your horse dance.
