Moon Diary 5.13.15

Wednesday is associated with Mercury.

Mercury is about our ability to communicate, our intelligence, logical thinking, our curiosity.

Today is the 10th day of the waning Moon, Krishna Dashami, also the 25th day in the Moon cycle.

The deity associated with Krishna Dashami is Dharmaraja – who’s responsible for everything that’s related to Dharma and righteous way of living.

In addition, this is a Purna day, a day of fullness.

The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius, ruled by Saturn, and in the Nakashatra of Purva Bhadra Pada, ruled by Jupiter. The deity is Aja Ekapada, which means “one-footed goat”. The main thrust of this Nakshatra is pushing towards the goal – getting a glimpse of the Divine and being determined to go for union with the Infinite.

So it’s Mercury’s day, with Jupiter and Saturn and the god of Dharma watching over us all. Almost a holy day with so much benefic energy, reaching for a glimpse of the Divine.

Today would be excellent for speaking, writing, expressing all that inspires you – sit quietly and feel what truly gives you motivation and then write it down, sing it, speak it – write a poem, tell a friend, call someone who you resonate with and can hear what you are saying.

Also a good day for singing in the car – or saying something sweet to your kids – or speaking from your heart when talking to your partner or best friend.

Traditionally an auspicious day for all ceremonies and events.

Moon Diary 4.13.15

Monday is associated with the Moon.

The Moon is the Mother, the font of unconditional love, the goddess of connection and the ruler over water, the seas, and the plant kingdom. Moon is the mind, the emotions, and pure feminine. If you find yourself moody, emotional and sensitive, that is the Moon being acted upon by stressful forces.

Today is the 10th day of the waning Moon, Krishna Dashami, also the 25th day in the Moon cycle.

The deity associated with Krishna Dashami is Dharmaraja – who’s responsible for everything that’s related to Dharma and righteous way of living.

In addition, this is a Purna day, a day of fullness.

The moon is in the sign of Capricorn, ruled by Saturn, and in the Nakshatra of Sravana, ruled by the Moon, and the deity is Lord Vishnu.

The lesson of Sravana is to listen and hear not only what is being said, but to hear the truth beneath the words, beneath the sounds, beneath the voices. It is also related to mantra, sound, singing, sacred vibration and manifesting things. Things manifest through sound and Lord Vishnu is the one who manifests.

Lord Vishnu is know as the Paramatman (supreme soul) and is regarded as a major god in Hinduism and Indian mythology. He is thought of as the preserver of the universe.

So today is a holy day, a day of fullness, a day of blessings from Lord Vishnu and the god of Dharma, with Saturn ruling the Moon in Capricorn.

A sweet day for prayer, for doing yoga, for meditation, for any type of sadhana – a good day for blessing silently everyone you meet – good day for praying for all the loved ones who have departed and passed to the other side – a day for listening to the truth, coming through the lips of everyone who speaks to you – a day for listening underneath all that is said to the essence of dharma and truth that permeates all creation – great day for listening to nature and hearing that same dharma and truth.

So yes, it’s true we have to work in the world, and we’re all fighting something in ourselves, or we’re fighting obstacles, or we’re fighting our own mind – but the truth is always there, waiting for us to listen, and that is one of the lessons of this day.

Traditionally an auspicious day for all ceremonies and events.

Moon Diary 2.13.15 (Friday the 13th!)

Friday is associated with Venus.

Venus is related to beauty, art, romance, sex, pleasure, and is the indicator of relationships in Vedic astrology.

Today is the 10th day of the waning Moon, Krishna Dashami, also the 25th day in the Moon cycle.

The planetary ruler is Jupiter, representing wisdom, higher teachings, luck & fortune. Jupiter is a sattvic planet, benefitting all planets with which it comes in contact. The deity associated with Krishna Dashami is Dharmaraja – who’s responsible for everything that’s related to Dharma and righteous way of living.

In addition, this is a Purna day, a day of fullness.

The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio, ruled by Mars, and in the Nakshatra of Jyestha, ruled by Mercury. The deity is Indra, king of the gods. There’s a sense of being ready to take up the battle, a willingness to fight, to be heard, to possess the emotional courage to meet obstacles head on with undaunted fervor.

It’s a distinctive day to have Jupiter and Venus – benefic planets – join forces today, with Indra adding some warrior energy to the mix.

It’s a good day to be social, to speak your mind, to be gentle with your beliefs, to linger with acquaintances you usually avoid. You can also channel some of that warrior energy to clean out the closet, to pick up trash in your neighborhood, to sweep the debris out of the garage.

Jupiter and Venus give the impetus to take the higher road in conversations, in encounters, in chance meetings with old friends. Notice any urges to correct or protest, and think before you speak. Just a small hesitation will serve you well.

Traditionally an auspicious day for all ceremonies and events.
