New Moon today!
New Moon is at 13:45 CDT while in Pisces and Uttarabhadrapada nakshatra- joining Sun here as well. Sun and Moon will be receiving drishti from Mars. Uttarabhadrapada is ruled by Saturn and Ahirbudhnya, the son of Vishvakarma and Surabhi. He is a serpent of the nether regions, hidden realms and mystical knowledge. He provokes studying, research and knowledge. Though he is a Rudra, he can remove calamity and misfortune because of his intense understanding and depth.
This new Moon offers us insights, contemplation and a chance to move our attention inward for greater consciousness development over the next two weeks. A certain sharpness may be accessible and available to us at this time. Desires to grow, advance and expand our knowledge and understanding will be heightened as well. Paying attention to the physical body and the mind/body connection will be especially helpful during this cycle. Somatic integration is supported and encouraged. Think: embodiment.
