Moon Diary – Wednesday – January 6 2016

Wednesday is associated with the planet 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. Mercury is the smallest planet in the solar system.

Today is the 12th day of the waning Moon, Krishna Dwadashi, ruled by Mercury; it is the 27th lunar day.

The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio, ruled by Mars, and in the Nakshatra of Anuradha, ruled by Saturn.

Anuradha means “another Radha” and its shakti is the power of worship; Anuradha is all about the blessed bond of friendship.

So there’s Mercury being a dominant force today, with Mars and Saturn in the mix; plus the friendship factor.

So today is an excellent day to bond with a friend and have a conversation that you’ve been meaning to have. There could be determination – Mars and Saturn influence – a tenacious drive to communicate with someone you haven’t spoken to in awhile.

Communication is big here; expressiveness in writing, singing, talking. Maybe try writing a song for a friend and singing it to them; send an email expressing all the love in your heart; talk to the children, yours or other’s; talk to your spouse; sing in the car as loud as possible; tell your boss he’s cool; sing to your co-workers; tell corny jokes; light up the environment you are in, being light-hearted, positive, and expressive. Spread the light in an alluring air of not taking anything too seriously.

Traditionally a good day for planning of donations and money.
