Moon Diary


Wednesday is associated with Mercury.

Mercury is about communication, speech, expression, the voice, intelligence and curiosity. It is considered a neutral planet and adapts to the energy around it. If you invited Mercury to a party, he’d be chatting and easy-going, and adapt to the conversation and people around him – he’d go with the flow and add intelligent questions and balance and curiosity to his part of the banter.

Today is the 4th day of the waxing Moon, Shukla Chaturthi, and each day now we are seeing the Moon getting stronger in its influence leading up to Purna, the day of fullness.

The deity for this day is Ganesh, who removes obstacles, clears out unneeded energy, and paves the way for efficiency and smooth sailing.

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.

This would be a great day to write a love song (Venus and Mercury), or a short story, or communicate your ideas to someone.

Also a great day for any kind of conversation – maybe talk to your spouse – tell them everything that’s on your mind – or take time to chat with your kids – Have I said today is the day to communicate? – maybe you have thoughts and ideas that have been pent up – find your bestie and spill the beans – today is the day to sing your woes, sing your blues, sing out to all who can hear – sing the best version of yourself.

Or write down your feelings, give a speech at work, talk to a stranger at lunch – Ganesh clears the obstacles, Mercury communicates, Venus is the love and beauty and pleasure. Combine them all and say hello with a passion (Mars) to today, Wednesday, September 16, 2015.

Traditionally not an auspicious day for ceremonies.
