Moon Diary 12.7.16
Wednesday is associated with Mercury.
Mercury is about our ability to communicate, our intelligence, logical thinking, our curiosity.
Today is the 8th day of the waxing Moon, Shukla Ashtami, also known as the 8th tithi or 8th lunar day.
The deities of Shukla Ashtami are the Vasus. In Hinduism the Vasus are attendant deities of Indra, and later Vishnu. They are eight elemental gods representing aspects of nature and cosmic natural phenomenon.
The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius (most of the day) – ruled by Saturn, and in the Nakshatra of Purva Bhadra, and the deity is Aja Ekapada, a one-footed goat that is the vehicle for the fiery god, Agni.
The shakti is “the power to raise a spiritual person up in life”. This nakshatra is ruled by the benefic Jupiter, which reflects the high idealism of this asterism.
The influence of PurvaBhadra often leads to success in the business world, with a primary motivation toward artha, or prosperity.
So this easily could be a day of intelligence, common sense, and curiosity in the business world, in your job, in your career, in your actions of the world.
It’s a day of implementation – bringing ideas into form. Could be a song, a short story, a drawing, a castle in the sand – an idea taking shape in one form another.
So go with the flow of the mind- allow your ideas to emerge without resistance, and the rest will take care of itself. Just being mindful of this energy will bring success to this process.
Traditionally, an inauspicious day for most ceremonies.
