Moon Diary 7.1.15
(Plus Venus/Jupiter conjunction in Cancer)
Wednesday is associated with Mercury.
Mercury rules communication, speech, intelligence, self-confidence; and when in good dignity, it stimulates growth, curiosity, and new ideas. It is adaptable and neutral.
Today is the 15th day of the Waxing Moon, Shukla Purnima, Full Moon – the deity is the Vishvadevas, all the Hindu deities as a whole. (Punima means full)
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 the full Moon is an auspicious time, and the added power in the sky is the Jupiter/Venus conjunction in Cancer, which will be exact on 3:49 am Eastern time on this day (Wednesday).
So yes, Jupiter is the planet of hope, optimism and higher teachings; Venus is about happiness, pleasure, & comfort; both considered to be benefic planets, and here they are in exact conjunction in the sign of Cancer, ruled by that full Moon. There’s a lot of love and Sattvic energy in the air today- it’s just an awesome day to soak in all the goodness in the world.
Ketu rules the Moon in Mula, which could bring insights in meditation, and strong intuitive leanings in terms of higher knowledge, and in our close relationships.
There also could be strong leanings towards wanting peace in the heart and wanting to pursue pleasure and comfort and worldly happiness; sometimes they do not resonate together harmoniously; Pursuing pleasure can be stimulating and not conducive to peace in the heart.
Mercury’s influence could make it a time to express what you’re feeling – singing in the car is always good; journaling can be quite productive; having lunch with your bestie and expressing yourself to the fullest can be most fulfilling on this day.
Venus and Jupiter can also bring luck and fortune, on all levels, from monetary gain –to meeting someone you love — to ideas of higher teachings –to just plain old good fortune (luck of the draw) – that is the kind of day it is.
Traditionally an auspicious day for ceremonies and spiritual practices.
