Moon Mindfulness ::: Mind Your Moon
Moon Moves from Rohini into Mrgashiras nakshatra at 12:15 pm this afternoon CST. Moon is still in its mulitrikona placement of Taurus and has passed over Jupiter (in Rohini nakshatra). Rohini's energy is about creating and moving resources, while Mrgashiras is utilizing these resources for growth and nourishment. The devata here is Chandra, soma essentially. The symbol is a deer head with antlers- symbolic of nourishment, ornamentation and protection, as well as a nod to the crown chakra. Antlers (in powder form) have long been used as an immune system medicine in Ayurveda and also as an aphrodisiac. Antlers fall off and grow anew each year, symbolizing the growth, change and rejuvenation of Mrgashiras. Its connection to Chandra, the ever changing moon, is another homage to the flighty, fickle deer people that Mrgashiras rules. We know who we are!
Today, the mind moves and prances, is attracted to beauty and comforts and may be a bit lustful. Go for potent nourishment instead of superficial momentary satisfaction. Watch your mind move quickly today. Seek the soma.
