Moon Diary 2.13.15 (Friday the 13th!)

Friday is associated with Venus.

Venus is related to beauty, art, romance, sex, pleasure, and is the indicator of relationships in Vedic astrology.

Today is the 10th day of the waning Moon, Krishna Dashami, also the 25th day in the Moon cycle.

The planetary ruler is Jupiter, representing wisdom, higher teachings, luck & fortune. Jupiter is a sattvic planet, benefitting all planets with which it comes in contact. The deity associated with Krishna Dashami is Dharmaraja – who’s responsible for everything that’s related to Dharma and righteous way of living.

In addition, this is a Purna day, a day of fullness.

The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio, ruled by Mars, and in the Nakshatra of Jyestha, ruled by Mercury. The deity is Indra, king of the gods. There’s a sense of being ready to take up the battle, a willingness to fight, to be heard, to possess the emotional courage to meet obstacles head on with undaunted fervor.

It’s a distinctive day to have Jupiter and Venus – benefic planets – join forces today, with Indra adding some warrior energy to the mix.

It’s a good day to be social, to speak your mind, to be gentle with your beliefs, to linger with acquaintances you usually avoid. You can also channel some of that warrior energy to clean out the closet, to pick up trash in your neighborhood, to sweep the debris out of the garage.

Jupiter and Venus give the impetus to take the higher road in conversations, in encounters, in chance meetings with old friends. Notice any urges to correct or protest, and think before you speak. Just a small hesitation will serve you well.

Traditionally an auspicious day for all ceremonies and events.
