Moon Mindfulness ::: Mind Your Moon
Moon is now waxing (bright half) and in Gemini and joins Jupiter, Venus and Mercury there. Moon is in Mrigashirsha nakshatra (as is Jupiter and Sun) until 12:40 CDT when it moves to Ardra nakshatra- joining Venus in this nakshatra as well. Moon in Gemini receives drishti from Rahu today (Jupiter, Venus and Mercury included).
Ardra as we know is ruled by Rudra, the storm god, as well as the planet Rahu. Ardra brings emotional upheaval, change, destruction, anger, movement and calamities. The focus is on change and movement, however, which may or may not be "bad". Rahu notoriously brings change as well- worldly change and fluctuations. Expect movement, momentum and emotions today- especially with women, about women, for women. The mantra of the day: roll with the punches.
I particularly like to pay attention to the weather as they relate to the nakshatras (nakshatras are pranic expressions of the life force, and can be witnessed through Nature). For some of us, we will get thunderstorms today, others may get high winds or gentle breezes (Vayu). Because of Rahu's current placement and connection to Vayu- a Rudra and also the wind god- there will be movement involved quite naturally.
What is moving in you today? What needs to be moved? Pay attention to the direction the wind is blowing as well as your internal pranic winds.
