Moon Mindfulness ::: Mind Your Moon
Moon in Aquarius transiting Dhanishta nakshatra until 20:43 CDT tonight. Moon is in the dark half (waning) in the 7th tithi which is ruled by Saturn. Aquarius is also ruled by Saturn and the Moon is receiving drishti from Rahu today from its position in Libra where it sits with Saturn and is also the sign of exalted Saturn. There is a lot of Saturn coinciding with the moon today. Some of us may feel this as depression, sadness, grief, disappointment, discouragement. It is important on these days to get embodied, physical movement and connection to prana are essential.
Dhanishta is ruled by Vasu (and the planet Mars) and its translation is "the most famous" or "the most wealthy". Vas means "to shine" so sometimes this is called the "shining star". People born with Dhanishta nakshatra tend to be extra sparkly and shiny- their light is attractive to others. The eight Vasu-deva are sources of abundant wealth, prosperity and illumination which can be associated with the material plane of existence or the realms of knowledge, insight and inner expansion. The Vasu-deva are connected to dharma and fulfilling desires in the relative world- hence there is a lot of creative potential and ability here. Jyotish is also connected to Dhanishta as it is a source of light (literally jyoti), expansion, dharma and enlightenment.
Use today's creative spark of insight for creativity, manifestation and dharma to create awareness and growth. Jupiter moves into Gemini late this evening for one year- signaling a new creative focus for all of us. Initiate the year with your own inner abundance- the light of you.
