Commitment and Prosperity Vedic Full Moon August 15th

IMG_5092.jpg

The Moon takes her journey to the house of Capricorn arriving at her fullness at 28° in a home governed  by Saturn in the nakshatra of Dhanishta.

Capricorn is the feminine reflective quality of Saturn where we feel emotionally and experience it psychologically. A place where our consciousness takes its experience and sums up of all that has transpired, offering a moment of calm perception after a few months months of roller coaster rides, turbulence, and obstacles.  

The resource that Capricorn provides the Moon is the capacity to face what we need to, and the endurance to withstand the challenges and fears we must face on our path of our dharma. 

Saturn the depositor of the Moon, remains intertwined with Ketu in retrograde motion, reminding us that our new foundations require patience to build them properly.  This combination leaves no stone unturned and challenges our core commitment, reminding us to slow down and steady ourselves, and to commit to a path of action that aligns with our long-term goals. 

The fire energy has been riding high these several few weeks and now with Venus combust combust and Mars powerful Leo, challenges are felt in our communication and relations. The gift of the bright August Moon brings in a coolness and the chance to collect of our thoughts where we can make corrections to our actions and our reactions. A time for creating and sorting our structure and a time to stabilize our fickle mind that changes at a moment’s notice when guided fiery emotions.

Use the calmness of Saturn infused Moon and examine and refresh your tools and thoughts, stay committed to the connection with your heart and with your higher mind and be always kind.

The Infinite one is always in constant play with us through the maya of the earth reminds us to see the Gurprasad in everything , from the karma to the dharma

Screen Shot 2019-07-26 at 13.49.16.png

Luna’, from the wedding album of Costanzo Sforza & Camilla, Marzano d'Aragona

Cancer, the sign of the Mother a place that holds the deep reservoirs of memories linking us to the past and to our origins, is the field where our emotional body of experiences the new Moon at 13° in Pushya nakshatra.

The Moon is counseled by four planets -Mars, Venus, Mercury and the Sun in the sign of the sensitive Crab, our emotional body has shifted from a chatty Gemini, dissolving into a period emotional depth where buried emotions get pushed into flow in the high tide emotional thoughts.

Glancing at the Moon from Scorpio a retrograde Jupiter calls for us to work on our unresolved emotional patterns that are buried where we may have pain around not belonging or feeling disconnected from friends and family. The vulnerability that arises now could be the missing link that allows for more meaningful connections. Examining our family bonds and histories may help us to heal as we begin a new cycle of relating to our emotions and sensitivity.

Anger and heartbreak can be catalysts for change, coming into our heart is where our true courage lives, with the power of 108 Suns, it gives us strength to be who we are without repression, control, or influence from outside authority.

Cancer is the great sensitive and mystical mother, this field owned by the Moon prioritizes vulnerability, care, and genuine human connection over empty achievement and material gain.

Our openness, genuineness, and emotional depth are our real gifts. They’re ready to root deeper, both within us and in society.

As we get ready to step into August, we push the reset button. Sit back, as the Moon merges into the Sun, still the mind and heart while you prepare for new directions even though the details haven't become clear as the recent dissolution activated by the eclipses has not yet actually concluded. We're still in the flow of change and transition that requires full attention,and faith.

The world changes according to our perception. Ask yourself how to adjust your points of view so you can generate more hope and positivity? How can you turn your consciousness and action toward the light as you remembering that your job is to open your heart and live fully no matter what. The Universe always mets us as we step forward, embracing us as we embrace ourselves completely.

Pushya nakshatra is a blossoming fortune that comes work it’s not the role of a dice, your karma generates your fortune well informed action is to constantly put your knowledge into action

Dissolving Fears and Anxiety July Vedic Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse

Image Hima Klimt

Image Hima Klimt

Becoming full at 29° the Moon receives the messages of Saturn and Ketu under the gaze of Rahu, Venus and the Sun. Opening a gate for us to break free from the stagnate holding patterns of the past to awaken to new worlds of possibility.

Saturn and Ketu stimulate our overactive thoughts, irritation activating old emotional wounds, shifts in dynamics in love, friendships, and financial agreements as Venus attempts to adjust the scales of needs and desires.  Saturn, Ketu and the Moon want us to ground and still our minds rallying the courage to face our shadows and fears, to look our shame and heartbreak, allowing them to be released.

Collectively we are all caught in an acceleration of maturity and wisdom that comes along with it. This lunar eclipse is a portal of decisions, Saturn helps us dismantle old, outworn belief systems and philosophies and Ketu crumbles the familiar structures letting them continue to fall away. As we bring our shadows to the light of awareness, we’re supported in liberating ourselves from harmful patterns and habituations.

We are all blessed and protected by our guides, teachers and mentors in each every moment , and as the July full Moon is falls under Uttara Ashadha nakshatra it becomes “the full moon of the Guru,” known as Guru Purnima in India, a special day for us honour teachers, mentors, and guides. With so many teaching entities (planets) counselling the Moon it promises a coming dawn after situations that are marked by trouble or difficulty.

Always remember that wisdom is available to all of us from the depths of our beings, It’s important we keep our hearts open as we continue the work we came here to do on this polarity planet.

For the next few days we may experience or witness intense mood swings and need to keep our communications in check as we are crossing a threshold, indicating a disconnect or breakdown between the balance of expansion and contraction.

The journey is the goal and it is the joy that comes when we stay present in the moment, embracing all that is good and bad, light and dark, ease and struggle with equal measure.

I send you lots of love and luck

Accelerating Change Solar Eclipse July 2nd 2019

IMG_3470.jpg

image archdigest

The path of our consciousness intersects with our soul at 16° of Gemini in Ardra nakshatra the red pulsating star of clearing and cleansing. The intensity of June leads us to solutions in July, where it’s not quite a time of celebration but one of acceleration, as the very fibre of our being is being rewired to become who we are, without fear, rapidly evolving our more enlightened qualities, balancing our pragmatism with intuition and sensitivity, as we prepare for a new paradigm.

At the time of the eclipse, Saturn opposes the Sun and Venus, forcing growth, the dropping of our patterns specifically in relationships and in what gives us stability.  It is through the Moon, the lens of our emotional body who takes on the energy of Adra locating the root of what plagues us , gifting us with a precision in how to resolve it, becoming reborn.

Saturn and Ketu continue to be intertwined within a degree activating a sense of survival and surrender, pain and problems. Both Saturn and Ketu prefer meditation and both like control and structure and this why it is good to have a daily practice to avoid feeling overwhelmed. Emotional balance this summer is key, pay attention to chaotic mood fluctuations and try to remain objective rather than becoming swept away in the passion of the moment.

Rahu and Ketu are one entity a Naga, the goal is to unite them and bring balance in these two halves, restoring connection, it is a Kundalini energy. Stay in touch with your emotions and your direction but don’t let it rise to your head and make you nuts, unbalanced - fire can consume us strong and balanced fire gives us vision, determination and creative action.

Your prayers and action are what create the world, nothing shifts until you shift and what you don't deal with will eventually deal with you. When we are willing to go through the tough phases with determination and patience then we are rewarded.

Those with their ascendent or prominent planets in Gemini, this eclipse brings in some important life changes specifically relating to relationships and contracts.

Pisces and Virgo will feel this quite strongly as well activating the core of home and career. Those running Sun/Saturn or Saturn/Sun dashas or Saturn/Ketu Ketu Saturn dashas.

The period between eclipses is always a time of karmic compression, eliciting big change as we enter into new energetic frequencies this Solar Eclipse with Rahu,in many ways, it marks the clearing of the slate.

Get down to your practice and take it seriously as a tool, not a photo opportunity. The axis of this eclipse creates a deep change in our consciousness, opening to a doorway where the mind can connect to source in a way that we do not usually have. Look at the lens of your own soul and redirect your path to your unique dharma and proceed with confidence.

I send you love and luck

The Density of an Unsettled Mind, Full Moon June 2018 Vedic Astrology

SPK Moon2.jpg

The story of time and of karma, told through the eyes of the Moon as she dwells in the company of Saturn, and Ketu at the center of the galaxy, a place loaded with an immense potency and power, next to a massive black hole and largest source of gravity known in our galaxy.

Arriving into fullness at 1° of Sagittarius in the lunar mansion Mula Nakshatra, a house of 9 stars symbolized by knotted roots ruled by Niriti, goddess of dissolution and destruction.  

The Moon, the lens of our mind is caught in the fire of two powerful malefics Ketu and Saturn while under the blazing gaze of Rahu, Mars and an afflicted Mercury in Gemini leaving nowhere for our emotional and mental body to hide. The penetrating lesson Saturn and Ketu delivers to our Manas ( mind) is one of circumspection and forethought, a commitment in taking ownership of our thoughts, feelings and our actions. Insisting the way forward is one done in maturity, rooted in the security of who we really are.

During this period it can feel like we are not getting away with what we used to, that we just can not fake or take it any longer. This is from the burden of carrying the load of emotional and mental intrigues we play, where we are in fact addicted to our own drama. Its a time to be honest with what your mental stories are and what you are unwilling to look at. The rumbling and the shaking within are working to expose the light.

You may have felt overly tired for the last 10 days, and this trend will continue for a few more days,  make sure the energy is not rising to your head and making you nuts, keep it simple and keep it in your heart, make time to sweat with exercise everyday, meditate everyday, utilise Ishnan therapy , take cold showers applying oil to your body, these are the tools to help us in the challenge of these times.

Ketu is the inward energy force , it is the voice and deeds of the past and in the sutras it is describes when Saturn and Ketu are joined together they create great beauty. This description makes me laugh, because the sages must have known this combination leaves no stone unturned and in many ways shows the humour of God with the Infinite at play through the maya of the earth.  The lesson of June is one of consequences and action that lead us to a very deep spiritual experience, as pain is not punishment and pleasure is not reward.

See the Gur Prasad  in everything and thank it, laugh at it and ask for more, what is being delivered to you to deal with is exactly what you can handle , coming through shining more brightly. This is how diamonds are made.

We are opening into an amazing portal of change, we are at the cusp of the Solstice and two major eclipses There is no better moment to find ourselves and allow for all of ourself to show up.


I send you lots of love

June New Moon - The Eye of the Red Bull Vedic Astrology

New Moon.png

Uniting at 19° of Taurus in the Lunar house of Rohini under the gaze of retrograde Jupiter, our June new moon is craving security and comfort yet is quite challenged by the powerful atmosphere of malefics occupying the axis of Gemini and Sagittarius.

The first two weeks of June we may feel pressured and feel a need to make a decision, a strong desire to move forward yet unsure of our footing or direction as we shift into a new set of circumstances life is unfolding for us. June is laden with an unprecedented amount of dysfunction where we can easily get trapped in pleasure seeking activities and habits in a means of escaping or avoiding our sorrow, duty and responsibility.

Some negative manifestations can be spending too much time and energy in pleasure seeking, in an attempt to feel good at all costs and sacrificing your individual purpose and path in the pursuit of repeated feel good experiences and things which advertise themselves as grandiose and stable but in fact promise more than they can deliver. Be clear and honest about what is taking you away from fulfilling your highest dreams and what you are really doing daily to support them.

As Mercury transits in Gemini with Mars and Rahu hostility and aggression is on the rise, being pushy and attached to being right can make our encounters intense, this is particularly true mid month June 12-14th. Mars wants what he wants yesterday and Saturn (opposite Mars) delays until tomorrow. Mars and Saturn represent opposite celestial forces of heat and cold, expansion and contraction, best practice for June is kindness and over the top politeness and do not rush.

Gemini is an air sign and is prone to vata disorders and needs grounding activities like gardening, exercise and pranayamas, calming the vacillating mind. Eating good oils and apply oils to the body are helpful to calm this vata tendency.

I advise you to look in your own natal chart and see the domains associated with Gemini Sagittarius and take note of these houses, this is quite a rare transit. Those with Gemini and Sagittarius ascendents and Moons will particuarly have challenges this month.

Gemini will beindecisive, hasty, too cunning, not finishing what they start and talking their way out of being responsible. Sagittarius will feel pressured and will shut off emotions and become more robotic, cunning trying to exercise less is more attitude.

The new Moon cycle of June will teach us to be willing to set strong boundaries around things that trap us and catch us from not deriving any real and lasting benefit in our lives. Do not over work yourself in any area of life during the first two weeks of June unless you have a good deal of clarity about what you are doing, why you are doing it and where it is leading you.

The pressure and weight of the load of June is delivering to our doorstep is a gift to us all, become happy about this run towards it and embrace it, thank it , ask for more, this is time and karma scheming to get you to level up. Do effective kryia’s, work on your nervous system and develop it to change your experience with the pressure of the times. Work on your container to hold success, let things come to you and get yourself prepared to sustain it.

I send you love and luck with the New Moon cycle

May Full Moon in Scorpio Vedic Astrology

IMG_2020.jpg

photo Nasa

Becoming full on Saturday, May 18 at 3º Scorpio the Moon enters the lunar house of Anuradha nakshatra where we become aroused as our emotional and subconscious mind is seduced by reaction and aggression.  

The Moon is under great pressure from Mars and Saturn, the planets of fire and restriction with each embattled with the nodes of the Moon Rahu and Ketu. Mars entangled with Rahu in Gemini and Saturn entangled with Ketu in Sagittarius opening a doorway into latent unconscious energies from the past and of the future.

The current planetary alignment is in a fight for our belief and of deeper truths where once we make a commitment we are given a pass to advance on a personal level and collectively. Saturn informs us with what we must do to move forward and Ketu what we must surrender. Rahu and Mars equally demanding action and with Mercury approaching combustion it can be done without logical mind so if you’re naturally fiery, be aware of this alignment seeping into your communication, dont react call on the breath.  

The Moon joins a retrograde Jupiter who is both bright in the sky and close to the earth creating a powerful magnetic pull and its in its strength where we can amplify the positive side to counsel our soul.

Call upon those teachings (Jupiter) and support systems that you have found and put them into action instead of feeling overwhelmed and reactive with the fiery flood emotions that pollute our higher mind and create vulnerability in our path.

This is a period to connect it’s not a time of isolation the next 4-5 days the intensity of this feeling of polarization peaks May 20th when Ketu and Saturn exactly align creating an undercurrent of change and evolution, ready or not.

The mind needs a steady place to rest, and it can be difficult to find that under the lens of Scorpio yet it is in our depths where we are able to have an honest and intimate conversation with ourself locating our true origin. Be smart and position yourself well to ride the season of change that is upon us and catch the man blessing it brings.

As humans are inclined to seek pleasure and ease giving us the perception that challenge can not be enjoyable when it actually can be. The full Moon of May brings to the doorstep of our soul a teaching of how to keep our mind calm, finding peace and success through devotion where we truly shine in the realization of our spirit through the development of grit and grace working through challenges and rise.

Vedic Astrology New Moon May The Labor and the Lever

Photo @nasa

Photo @nasa

As the Moon joins an exalted Sun at 20° of Aries, igniting our conscious and subconscious the lunar house of Bharani nakshatra a place of birth, death and rebirth. Symbolised by the yoni the female reproductive organ, here it is where we become alive, yet the joy of birth always comes with the weight of action, dealing with legacy and our inherited karma.

The strength of the exalted Sun Aries promises a month filled with activity and forward movement, yet the new Moon is sandwiched between some major planetary shifts; a retrograde Saturn, Mars preparing his move to join Rahu, we are not given a pass to run or to hide, just as a child passing through the womb to emerge into the world in birth and claim our responsibility and destiny.

This is a time where situations that arise embody the more soul lessons and the deeply ingrained patterns that require extra emotional equanimity so that we may see with ultimate clarity what is needing to be polish and smoothed out.

The new Moon of May encourages us to cross the threshold into action and with the first step forward we honour ourselves by becoming ourselves, trust our own unique expression, and use our voice, our being, and our vibration to embody the changes and the energies we wish to experience, where the ripples of transformation have been seeded to bring in the new into a higher consciousness.

Just as all births bring blessing so does this new moon with the vedic holiday called Akasha Trittya celebrated on May 7th when the Sun is exalted in Aries and the Moon has waxed into exaltation in the sign of Taurus.

Here we see the power of the Sun and Moon shine in their most glorious of settings, which are lorded by the powerful, masculine Mars and the radiant, feminine Venus. An auspicious day to start any new venture, bringing good luck and success.

May we learn to care for one another more deeply, and hold space for peace each and everyday

I wish you love and luck in the new Moon cycle

The Birth of a Pearl- Full Moon in Libra Vedic Astrology

IMG_1323.jpg

Arriving at its peak of fullness at 5°of Libra the Moon delights in the energy of an exalted Sun and exalted Venus, teaching us that oppositions are not meant to break us apart they are a complement to each other, uniting and blending the polarities.

With the full Moon in Libra and the Sun in Aries it brings into focus a need to decide. Libra in its nature prefers pondering and weighing searching for a middle ground without having to take a stand, while Aries in its nature likes to take action and think of the consequences later.

These great luminaries are teaching us that through working together we can find the balance, creating supportive alliances and win/win solutions, birthing something greater than ourself.

At her peak the Moon finds her strength in the lunar house of Chitra nakshatra, where our emotional lens finds it’s activation in Mars , who is at the very center of the of this nakshatra giving us a crystallization in our perception, energising us with wisdom and strength to move forward.

As Mars and Venus, work through the Moon reflecting the more earthly masculine and feminine qualities, exerting a stronger influence on both our externals tides and our inner tides heightening possible tensions and pressure in our relationships.

One of Chitra is symbols is a pearl, which is formed at the depths of the ocean, giving us a sense of the deep price and sacrifice in the creation of a pearl , something of beauty through an irritant of sand in the center of the oyster.

We must remember that it is form that traps our soul and it is jiva (prana) that animates our human body, the container of our essence, as Venus sits in exaltation depositing the Moon with the transfer the genetic codes and the creation of life, Chitra nakshatra suggest the birth of something new to be experienced and nurtured, even through the discomfort.

The divine architect encourages and inspires us to keep going forward and reminds us of the beauty of the journey, in our trial and error as part of our experience where we need to have the courage to fulfil our karma and face what it takes to create something great with our lives.

May we find peace, common ground, and abundance in our relationships, as we blossom into deeper love and maturity birthing our destiny. Enjoy the strength of the Sun, the comfort and inspiration of Venus and the restraint of Saturn as we continue to experience the blossoming of the spring season.

Happy Hanuman Jayanti, the birthday of Lord Hanuman, the infinite strength, courage, service and loving devotion. Remember his story he moved mountains.

April New Moon Vedic Astrology

Image Indgo

Image Indgo

The path of our consciousness intersects with our soul 22° Pisces in Revati nakshatra where the Moon, our emotional body searches for truth as our minds and hearts get thrown into the deep end of our fantasy and overwhelm, in an attempt to escape the pressures of time.

Revati nakshatra nourishes the Moon guiding us to our next destination as it’s lord Mercury (our conscious mind) asists us to find interesting and creative solutions to practical problems.

It’s Jupiter, the lord of Pisces who deposits the Moon with its seriousness. Jupiter is under tremendous pressure from four powerful malefics -Saturn, Ketu and by aspect Rahu and Mars making it difficult to remain positive for the next few weeks under their influence until April 23rd.

April is a time for figuring it out and getting out of our way, it is a month of true beginnings according to Vedic and yogic cycles, the planetary energies influencing our April new Moon are intimately connected to the power of Shakti in Revati yet her environment is filled with a tough love lesson, she feeds and nurtures yet she must restrict and teach us discipline so we may reach our destination.

Revati suggests a need for us to share our grace, kindness, and compassion in by doing so we are nourished and protected in the face of change or transition. Where the more we give, the more we are replenished - experiencing the greatest prosperity is through charity.

We came here to grow on this polarity planet and we only grow through pressure and by facing it we become stronger and brighter. We are being taught to be comforted by discomfort, wherein the challenges become easy when met with enthusiasm and a sense of play.

Every seed needs to sprout to bloom in ecstasy dancing in the light of the Sun. Cross the threshold and become visible to the universe so that miracles can find you.

Holding the Key to Each Others Doors Rāhu /Ketu Axis Shift

IMG_0365.jpg

The main event of March is the axis shift of Rāhu and Ketu into Gemini/ Sagittarius on March 7th (mean node calculation) it’s quite safe to say that as they move into a new place they are quite immature and overconfident , it’s also safe to say that with Rahu moving into Gemini and its ruler being retrograde and debilitated and Ketu joining Saturn, there is no escaping the experience of this shift this month quite significantly.

Gemini and Sagittarius are places in the sky that embrace change and breaking though. Places where we need to adapt, using our intelligence, faith and trust. Malefics want you to make effort, that is the first thing we need to understand to the lessons we are being given. The lighter you are, the easier it is to jump over the hurdles.

Rāhu and Ketu naturally move in a retrograde motion and both nodes are disruptors and shakers, the difference is how they each destabilize. Rāhu the significator of worldly desire excels operating in the sign of Gemini, it quite powerful moving dynamically and energetically in this mercurial owned house. This is one of the best placements for Rāhu.

Ketu, the significator of spiritual craving for liberation, as it moves through Sagittarius tends to cause us to be uninterested in worldly affairs with an increase in spirituality, sometimes leading us toward a retreat from activity.

The meeting of Ketu and Saturn is quite significant. Ketu retrograding and joining Saturn, who is moving forward through the late degrees of Sagittarius. and the history of these two meeting is a little sour. Ketu will conjunct Saturn until January 2020 (key dates to watch for 2019 are below)

The good news is that Saturn-Ketu conjunctions bring major breakthroughs in technology and human consciousness. It is as if the groundedness of Saturn brings the transcendent awareness of Ketu literally “down to Earth,” while Ketu simultaneously causes people to transcend the existing Saturnian limits and confines of this world

The last transit of Rāhu/Ketu through Gemini/Sagittarius was from July 2000 – February 2002 , so look back to these time periods and see what what was occuring in our life to give you somewhat of a glimpse.

Key dates /Time periods

March 22nd

We will begin to feel an unsettling wave building as Mars enters Taurus on March 22 where Mars and Rahu cast their gaze onto Ketu and Saturn in Sagittarius (Mars has an 8th house aspect from Taurus.

April 29- May 10th

April 30th Saturn enters into a retrograde phase just as he meets up with Ketu. The two will travel in tandem, both retrograde and on May 8th they are within a degree of one another, through the summer.

Saturn, Mars, Rahu and Ketu are all aspecting 27° of Sagittarius Exact conjunctions and precise aspect on a single point from all four of the malefics is pretty extraordinary. It a time period to watch.

May

Mars enters Gemini and joins Rahu fanning the flames for an intense summer.

June

The first and third week of June, especially June 5th and June 14-19th

October

The month of October, especially October 4th-5th, 10th-12th, 25th- 31st

December

Christmas Eve and Christmas, including the eclipse that happens on the 26th.

We should understand which domains of life in our personal horoscopes will be touched by this transit in order to predict how the period will proceed. When we are conscious of these energies, we can be more successful in curtailing unhealthy desires (Rahu) and avoiding mistakes or apathy (Ketu.)

I send you love and luck with their transit

The Threshold of Endings and Beginnings Vedic New Moon March 2019

IMG_0312.jpg

The cosmic address of the March new Moon is found at 21°of Aquarius in the home of the austere planet Saturn, a place filled with electricity ruled the deeply mystical deity Ajaikapada, part Naga and part Rudra, a place intimately connected to the Kundalini Shakti, the lunar mansion known as Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra.

The Moon (our consciousness) takes its journey through this fierce and stormy place on a hunt from deeper meaning, seeking to clear the path of outdated concepts, and attachments much like a sharp strike it creates a flash of light to give us a glimpse of what is to come, pulling our awareness towards the bigger picture, compelling us to make commitments to something greater than ourselves and our momentary happiness.

The penetrating lesson Saturn delivers though the Moon is one of circumspection and forethought a commitment to taking ownership of our thoughts, feelings and our actions, much like a river needs walls to be lead to the ocean, where it finds its depth and foundation, we too are best served when we are aligned with our focus and purpose.

As humans we are saturated in emotions, experiencing their friction against our thoughts and perceptions where they intertwine and colour our lives. Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra suggests that there is something to sort out in our in how we reflect our interior world with our exterior world and get it straightened out rather quickly without mincing words, under this lunar cycle we can be critical harsh just like a fire that destroys,, so take care with your words, remember to be kind, and don’t get preachy with others as this nakshatra likes to do.

March is a challenging month where we are planting the seeds for 2019. Our new Moon is surrounded by unsteady energies - challenging Mercury retrograde and the upcoming Rahu/Ketu axis shift into Gemini/Sagittarius affecting us all for the next 18 months.

March is not a time for making it a time for bold steps, this is a time to learn how to sort out and roll up your sleeves and make things work on practical levels, so keep it organised and balanced and you’ll receive rewards for your courage in seeing the broader context.

Make sure to get physical exercise everyday this will help to release any tension and anxiety. This is not a time for being sedentary. Go outdoors. Breathe the fresh air. Allow Mother Nature to nurture you.

Lean into your Matra and let it work for you, as the original Rudra did to transform into the auspicious Lord Shiva. Feel the sound of divine dancing in all of your cells and elevating your frequency, create our own still point, a perfectly balanced position that keeps you aligned with your purpose, despite the chaos and distractions of the outer world, where we find our real joy no matter what.

I send you lots of love during this new Moon cycle

Alternative Thinking

IMG_0247.jpg

The very first of three Mercury retrograde cycles of 2019 begins on March 5 and lasts for thirteen days.

Mercury’s twists and turns in Pisces through March 15th before winding its way back to visit a friend’s home, the sign of Aquarius to toil the soil until the 12th of April.

During March it is wise to take cautionary steps as the atmosphere is abundant with unsettled planetary energies most significantly shift in consciousness with the is the upcoming change of the nodes of the Moon, Rahu and Ketu.

For the most part, Mercury’s retrograde will take place in Aquarius which is better than Pisces so during its stay in Pisces ( March 14th) proceed with caution with pursuing actions that require long-term decisions that could potentially affect your stability in 2019.

On the 15th of March, Mercury will cross back into Aquarius, and will not resume its direction motion until the 28th where it becomes more stable with each passing day.

During most of its transit Mercury will occupy the electric and fierce nakshatra Purva Bhadrapada, a stormy place ruled by Aja Ekapada a deity that is half Naga and half Rudra. Under its influence It is important that we are actively working to direct our mind and balancing our nervous system during its transit for the next 6 weeks and not letting the run off of our mind and nervous energy run us.

Purva Bhadrapada energy is dedicated to pursuit in the rising of the fires within (kundalini/shakti) and the consumption of samskara, to elevate our consciousness and awareness, we experience it now through Mercury’s transit, revisiting a place of discovery through careful analysis, letting go of old ideas, patterns and thought forms without anger but with gratitude for its for lesson.

Where we ned to be alert is in the hunt for our own truth it watch our our tongue as it can be quite sharp and piercing as a strike of the thunder and a howl. don't give into reactions or rashness and try not to preach.

So you can say thank you to Mercury in March for its twist and turns and doing us quite a favour by putting on the brakes and giving us thoughtful reflection to consider our actions, our speech and our path. Clearing the garden of of heart and mind to transform our ideas into the treasures of our heart.

Mercury retrograde is not not in a time of fear or worry but a time of observation that leads us to elevation The disciplined pursuit of stillness and detachment from form puts the yogi in a position to merge with the absolute, an infinitely expansive state.

I send you lots of love with Mercury transit

Astral Wisdom Full Moon in Magha Nakshatra

Screen Shot 2019-02-18 at 11.56.46.png

Coming into fullness, swirling with fire and sparkling with gifts the Moon shines brightly in the heart of Leo in Magha nakshatra, free from affliction receiving wise counsel from the Sun and Mercury in Aquarius.

Magha nakshatra is the brightest amongst all the nakshatras as well as the brightest star contained in the constellation of Leo.

Ruled by the Pitr our divine ancestors and Ketu the liberator, Magha is a deeply mystical nakshatra connected with the in between realms, where records are kept and wisdom is found. Its fiery and hot and not soft in any way, it’s agenda is to remind us of our sovereignty, individual strength, and the inheritance we’ve received from those who came before us.

In it most simplistic essence Magha deals with our past to shape our present, a place we can access our ancestors help to guide us, as Ketu the guardian of our past karmas releases what is ripe to be experienced into the present.

The Moon operating in this star field signifies the need to develop a healthy ego and temperament for our soul to accomplish its mission. With both the Sun and Mercury communing with the receptive Moon in a combined message teaching of social service and humanitarianism, we learn that we receive by giving. This is key in the tempering of this nakshatra where there is a risk of an overly inflated ego that is inhabited by arrogance and stubbornness where we can become overly identified with status.

As Mars in powerful in Aries behaving quite aggressively and Saturn and Venus tightly joined in Sagittarius. We may have felt more tired and drained and a little rough around the edges, the last week, Possible friction with others as we attempt to balance personal strength with interpersonal relationships.

As Venus will quickly join Ketu in Aquarius on the 24th making it a good time to heal emotional patterns that may not even be yours but what you may have learned, take the time to release the old stories of the past either way and help your family to release theirs.

The February full Moons lesson is of being comfortable and confident in our authority, without the need to prove it. Where we can experience a state of knowing in the throne of our soul experiencing all the creation of divine, standing beside us and in us, each and every moment on our path to dharma.

During the full Moon cycle take time and honour your ancestral traditions, your lineage and teachers connecting with your genetic and astral wisdom.

We have a sacred breath of life given by God a life that even the angels envy. May you be blessed and feel the strength of all that is supporting you.

I send you lots of love and luck during the full Moon cycle

Suniai Sidh, Listening New Moon in Śravaṇa

Screen Shot 2019-02-04 at 11.49.41.png

On February 4th the path of our consciousness, the Moon intersects with Sun our soul at 21° of Capricorn in Śravaṇa nakshatra a star field ruled by Vishnu that is deeply connected with Saraswati, transporting a message contemplation.

Capricorn is the feminine reflective quality of Saturn where we feel emotionally and experience it psychologically. The resource that Capricorn gives to the Moon is the capacity to face what we need to, and the endurance to withstand the challenges and fears we must face on our path of dharma.

Śravaṇa nakshatra is a star of making connection through learning and listening to hear the truth and have it merge with silence. Ruled by Vishnu, the one who is everything and is everywhere, it is easy to see why its associated with movement and the transference of information, as it was through Vishnu’s the very breath and sound that the Vedas were created.

This New Moon cycle is teaching us to create a stable inner structure so that we may receive, by bringing our awareness to locate the source so we may connect with what is eternal and true.

Śravaṇa Nakshatra suggests that there is something to sort out in our direction and in our path, how we perceive our path and how we see ourselves becoming individualised, where we have the choice to either we take hold of our time or become subject to it.

 With Venus now in Sagittarius coming close to Saturn, and both planets being 12th from the Moon it offers us a period offers us a pause before leaping into action, with Mars moving into Aries, the day after the New Moon Mars where we will experience a rush of energy after the 9th once is passes though gandanta point where there is tension for a few days.

Fill yourself with light everyday and see that you are a part of creation and that you are creation. Examine and refresh your tools and thoughts, stay committed to the connection with your heart and with your higher mind.

Its a good time to be introspective, observing what is awakening and what needs to be let go, give this energy space to take hold, try not to talk to excessively, just be present. It is in our own sacred silence that we hear our spirit call.

I send you lots of love and luck with the new Moon Cycle

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse

15465356126_4e9b1e7c09_b.jpg

The queen of the sky returns home and becomes full on January 21st at 6° degrees in the sign of Cancer where she is filled with potency and grace under the divine nakshatra of Pushya.

Pushya nakshatra is one of the most auspicious nakshatras, it’s deity is Brihaspati (Jupiter) the adviser and teacher to the Gods. Pushya gives nourishment and growth, awakening our desire for deeper awareness and clearer understanding, co ruled by Saturn is what gives Cancer its a strong sense of responsibility and dedication.

The feminine principle is embodied in the Moon, it’s powerful, naturally comforting, and difficult to control. Rahu has occupied the home of the divine feminine, amplifying and communicating from her house since 2017, throughout Rahu’s transit in Cancer it has been working to elevate and amplify the Adi Shakti, the feminine power seeking to bring awareness and balance back making sure that women’s voices were to be heard loud and clear.

We saw many positive changes over the course of 2018 in bringing back and shifting feminine power and feminine voice.

This will be the last eclipse that Rahu will make in Cancer before moving on to Gemini in March. His last lunar eclipse in Cancer will raise questions in the nature of redefining of what security means to each of us personally, as well as on a global level. It will activate a shift in how we are perceiving and processing the worldly hypnotic trance that is feed into our thoughts, emotions that color and pattern our lives. It will bring a increase and heightened state in our sensitivity, magnifying it in the sign of Cancer, and with Mercury is in Capricorn and close to Ketu it means that both of our thinking planets involved in the eclipse indicating that this is a time to not take things so personally instead, face your responsibilities with greater commitment, be honest and sincere with yourself and promote kindness and determination and keep life simple.

At the time of the eclipse Rhau is seated in Punarvasu amplifying the goddess frequency of the divine mother awakening a deep devotional quality expanding our hearts and our capacity love. This placement of Rahu reinforces the divine feminine as seen through Aditti. This is a beautiful chance to be bathed in the divine love and to create a healthy innerspace Rahu wants to give this before it leaves Cancer in March.

Jupiter gives the Moon a uplifting 9th aspect to the eclipse from the house of Scorpio and with Mars and Jupiter in a Parivartana Yoga (mutual exchange) we are graced with opportunity to and courage to move forward, as this is a year of action and we are being pushed from the nest now with love and complete support.

As always is not advisable to do important actions around the time of an eclipse, and keep life simple in the eclipse, this is what the rishi’s taught and remember the days surrounding the full Moon can be a little emotional so don't take yourself too seriously.

Any form of spiritual practice is potent during eclipse times but spiritual practice is beneficial everyday.

Meditation Tip for the Full Moon

To Begin Sit comfortable in a cross-legged position with a straight spine bring your hands together in front of your heart and repeat 3 times Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo before beginning the exercise

Eyes: Closed & focused at the brow point.

Posture and Mudra: Raise the right knee up with the right foot flat on the ground, toes pointing straight ahead. Place the sole of the left foot against the arch and ankle of the right foot. The ball of the left foot rests just in front of the ankle bone of the right foot.

Make a fist of the left hand and place it on the ground beside the hip. Use this to balance the posture. Bend the right elbow and place it on the top of the right knee. Bring the right hand back along the side of the head with the palm facing the ear. Form a shallow cup of the right palm. Then bring it against the skull so that it contacts the skull below the ear but stays open above the ear. It is as if you formed a cup of the hand to amplify a faint sound that you want to hear.

Mantra: Inhale deeply and chant Maaa in a long, full, smooth sound. Project the sound as if someone is listening to you. As you chant, listen to the sound and let it vibrate through your whole body. If you chant in a group, hear the overtones that develop and let those tones vibrate all around you and in every cell of your body.

The mantra is Maaa. Chant it at a comfortable high pitch. When you have exhaled completely, take another deep breath and continue. In a group you may all inhale at different times. The group sound will seem continuous.

Time: Continue for 11 minutes.

Switch Sides: Then change the legs and hands to the other side. Continue for an equal amount of time. Start slowly. Learn to hold the concentration into the sound.

On January 6th at 21°of Sagittarius at 0:2:29 (CET) the New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse takes place in the presence of Saturn and Mercury in the Nakshatra of Purvashada, a lunar house owned by Venus and ruled by the Apas, the lord of waters. The first of the two eclipses in January will act as a gateway to what is to come in 2019.

Eclipses with Ketu reveal hidden and buried skills that come to the surface. Ketu’s mission is one of excavation and liberation, in doing so it wants us to go into the discomfort by concretely looking the dark parts of ourselves buried in the tangled confusion of our thoughts and emotions.

At the time of this eclipse, the Sun and Saturn very closely conjunct and through their lens they reveal issues with governments and their leaders, Saturn being the planet of karmic retribution and the Sun representing government and power. On personal level we may feel pressure to commit to our higher purpose, and in at the same time we may feel our enthusiasm or energy dampened by the effect of Saturn on the Sun. Our nervous system is can also be a little ‘cooked’ as seen through Mercury is in the presence of three fierce planets. Those with significant planetary placements in Sagittarius particularly ascendant or Moon will fell the effects of this eclipse more significantly.

Governing the Moon, Sun and Saturn is Purva Ashadha is a very fierce nakshatra, under it it can reveal our obstinacy, argumentativeness, and the inability to listen to advice.

The support and grace we have in January comes from Venus and Jupiter, the two great teacher planets, they bringing opportunities to expand our knowledge from two different perspectives and two levels of awareness. The second source of support comes from Jupiter and Mars who are in an Parivartana, exchanging and sharing their energies and resources. These planets offer us stability and strength.

2019 is related to the PItta (fire) and Vata (air) elements, this affects all forms of communications, our courage, education and efforts. This is a year to get out there and really create changes to manifest, this is a year to pull up your boot straps and go for it. The only caveats is not to react, direct your mind to a greater dimension of your creative expression and keep focused on the positive activated mind and action to manifest. We are entering in a place of inner knowingness , commanding our path, prepared and ready to follow our destiny.

Eclipses are points of change awakening us to our greater potential, they offer us insights into our own evolution. In the Vedic and yogic sciences the period of 3 days on either side of the eclipse should be avoided for new beginnings of major importance.

Keep up be the light and share your light I wish you the very best of 2019 , may we all be blessed, may peace prevail and may all people prosper by thy grace

Beautiful artwork by Jamila Starwater Tazewell

Becoming full at 6.43°of Gemini our last full Moon of 2018 draws resource in field of Ardra nakshatra a powerful place owned by the original form of Shiva, one that is intimately connected to the Kundalini Shakti.  

Under the cold and burning influence of the Sun and Saturn, directly in opposition to the Moon, these two powerful malefics capture the Moon with their aspect, leaving nowhere for our emotional and mental body to hide. The penetrating lesson Saturn delivers though the Moon is one of circumspection and forethought a commitment to taking ownership of our thoughts, feelings and our actions, Saturn is insisting the way forward is of maturity, deeply rooted in the security of who we really are.

The echo locator of our heart (the Sun) is communing with our desire (the Moon) from the very center of the galaxy a place loaded with immense potency and power, seated next to the largest black hole, singing the song of our soul desiring to be heard and witnessed.

As humans we are saturated in emotions, experiencing their friction against our thoughts and perceptions where they intertwine and colour our lives. The intensity of 2018 transits were  teaching us maturity and responsibility in the expression and processing of our emotions and our actions, our inactions, the karmas we have created.

We have collectively evolved and expanded this year as our consciousness and soul pushed at times to the limit , held accountable by the consequences of time. The December full Moon gives us a leap of power and strength to merge with ourselves, integrating the lessons of 2018, the Ardra Moon under its intensity of deliberation and consequences lead us to a very deep spiritual experience. The fierceness of Ardra nakshatra bring us to a tête-à-tête with our soul.

The two houses prominently activated during the full moon cycle of Gemini and Sagittarius are places that embrace change and breaking though. Places where we need to adapt, using our intelligence, faith and trust. Adra gives gains and success after struggle or search, this is seen with the lesson of the Rudra transforming into the auspicious Lord Shiva using his commitment, and unwavering determination to merge with the soul using one of the many the names of God to cut through the mind and its overflow into the subconscious were our thoughts and emotions hold us back.

Those who are running a Ketu or Saturn dashas or have a Sagittarius, Virgo, Gemini or Aquarius or Capricorn ascendent or have the moon in Sagittarius will feel the impact of Moon the most.

When the Light Comes In. Full Moon In Taurus Vedic Astology

13680605_10209923034369435_588088716266242119_n.jpg

Becoming strong and full at 7° Taurus the full Moon arrives in the transforming lunar house of Krittika nakshatra, known in the west as the seven stars of the Pleiades. Krittika is a sharp lunar sign ruled by Agni the transforming fire of illusion.

With the Moon under the gaze of a combust Jupiter, retrograde Mercury and fiery Mars, our mental and emotional energies are ignited and can quickly run into intense overdrive, filling us with a passion that needs an outlet.

We may feel a calling from deep within that certain changes are needed, yet we may not know, which way to chose. What is important now is not to rush, but to take your time in making firm and steady steps forward. Do not over pressurise yourself and try to accomplish everything at once, or even worse make impulsive and hasty decisions. Take your time, give it space to unfold until mid December.

Both of the key Lunar movements this month (new and full Moon) took place the homes owned by Venus. The new Moon was under the influence of retrograde Venus and now our full Moon is influenced by a combust Jupiter and Mercury retrograde. This combination heralds a time for us to analyse our own character and our tendencies, rather than point the finger and jump onto our soap box as the Sun and Jupiter can encourage us to do.

Our November full Moon is not a tender, even though it contains a powerful nurturing quality it wants to clear out quickly and without mincing words, we can be critical harsh just like a fire, the energy of the full Moon carries a potential and the resource to get things done and remove what is not needed. The key is in how you transform without setting everything ablaze, use your meditation and your mantra, call upon your breath when you are feeing the pressure allow these tools to work for you.

To conquer the mind is to conquer the world. ‘Guru Nanak

To conquer the mind is to conquer the world. ‘Guru Nanak
