8.2 to 8.4
Moon moves to Gemini at 11:21 CDT on 8.2 and joins Jupiter, Mars and Mercury there. Moon transits Mrgashira, Ardra and Punarvasu nakshatras over the next few days. Moon is in Ardra nakshatra (ruled by Rahu) on 8.3 until the early hours of 8.4.
Mars moves to Punarvasu nakshatra at 8:00 CDT on 8.3 which should soften the experience of four planets in Gemini- two of which will be in Ardra, ruled by the storm god Rudra. Movement, change, strong emotions are likely at this time. But look for the silver lining. The underlying positivity and wholeness will be tangible with the influence of Aditi ruling over Mercury and Mars. Note that these four planets receive drishti from Rahu sitting in Libra currently and transiting through Swati nakshtara (Vayu, the wind god). This exemplifies the sudden change, movement, element of surprise, the foreign and unusual as well as the storm energy. Don’t take unnecessary risks and avoid foolish behaviors. As per my last post: Sattva will be tainted by the shadow of Rahu. Don’t fall too far off the wagon.
Mercury is sandhi now and moves to Cancer on 8.4 at 10:51 CDT joining Sun there.They receive drishti from Saturn sitting in Libra who is transiting Swati nakshatra. An element of sadness and disappointment may set in and perhaps an overactive mind. Moon joins them in its own sign of Cancer on 8.5 until mid day on 8.7 and may help soften the blow of this combination initially. Stay out of the land mines of the mind if possible and don’t let the mind get too hot.
