Moon Diary 2.9.15
Monday is associated with the Moon.
Today is a Nanda day – Nanda meaning happy.
Today is the 21st lunar day, Krishna Shashti, the 6th day of the waning Moon cycle.
The deity is Kartikeya – the second son of the divine couple, Shiva and Parvathi, and the younger brother of Ganesha.
Kartikeya tends to the spiritual growth of aspirants, having the fire and energy to lead the army towards moksha (liberation). He represents transmutation of sexual energy and utilizing such energy for spiritual evolution. He takes care of health, family life, healthy children, and assets such as land, etc. – Fire and Mars relate to Karthikeya. He is considered the god of war and triumph.
The Moon is in the sign of Libra, ruled by Venus, and in the Nakshatra of Chitra, ruled by Mars. Moon in Chitra is passionate, with a lot of energy and enthusiasm to create.
So we have this Moon day with fire and energy (Kartikeya &Mars) and applying that energy in any situations with others (Venus). Great day for asking for help for any kind of project, for meeting new friends, for helping a neighbor clean up his yard, for helping your kids with a school project. Mars energy can be invigorating, and channeling that energy to help others is in line with how it rolls on this day.
Traditionally, today is favorable for coronations, real estate transactions, festivities and enjoyment.
