Moon diary 4.10.15

Friday is associated with Venus.

Venus is a rajasic and benefic planet, and governs romance, beauty, sensuality, passion, comforts, luxuries, wealth, and the bedroom. It is the significator of romantic relationships in a vedic astrology chart.

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 Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter, and in the Nakshatra of Mula, ruled by Ketu. The deity is Kali, and the lesson is to uproot darkness and plant the seeds of dharma ands truth.

So it’s a Venus day, with the war god Kartikeya, the goddess Kali, and the planet Jupiter.

So it could be fierce, in a way, as we guide our day to the beliefs we have learned, and mix them with the pursuit of pleasures of the senses, art and beauty, and worldly satisfaction. All the time we are weaving in and out all the things we have to take care of, and all we have to balance on this last day of the traditional work week.

So we talk about our desires, our thoughts, our struggles, our triggers. Excellent day to have a heart-to-heart talk with a friend or spouse to air out our loves and challenges.

It could be fierce to drive in traffic, or to be challenged at work, or to have children behaving badly – so the idea would be to hesitate in reacting, count to ten, take a deep breath in, and know that this too shall pass.

After all, it is a Venus Friday, and things do settle down, and the beat goes on, no matter what, the beat goes on.

Traditionally a good day for real estate transactions.
