This is a week of great excitement and anticipation, in line with a crescendo of emotional energy that builds and climaxes at the time of the Full Moon this weekend. During the week, we feel a gradual increase in our emotional reserves. We have more energy than usual. It is a time to tackle those challenging kundalini kriyas. Keep up with your sadhana as we approach the winter solstice, which is exact this Friday. You may find that you tend to stay up later and later each night as the Moon stays up later and later. She is bigger and bigger in the sky, making our dream state more active as we approach the end of the week. Pay attention to the messages coming to you while you sleep.
This is a week to turn inward and reflect. Choose meditative yoga kriyas over the more strenuous physically-demanding ones. In addition, remember that Mercury is still retrograde – at least, for the first part of the week. Use these final days of Mercury’s apparent backward motion to finish up any retrograde-related tasks. Tie up loose ends, return things that you borrowed, pay back money that you owe. Finish cleaning out the closet. Go through your old contacts, old messages, and old journals. Look through old photo albums. Get re-inspired by something that is of importance to you. You may see something that sparks the desire for a dream or a goal that you once had but maybe forgot about or that got shoved aside by something else.
The Moon is waning this week. As a result, it may feel like and emotional come down from the excitement of last week’s Full Moon holiday weekend. This week it feels like we are wrapping things up, turning inward more, and doing some reflecting. Go back over things that need mending or re-visiting. Remember that Mercury is still retrograde. It is not a time to shop for things with mechanical or electrical parts. If you feel you must make that kind of purchase, be sure to get a warranty. Also, allow extra time to get where you are going. Confused directions and app malfunctions will be more common than usual. You may lock yourself out of your car or your house. You left your phone somewhere when you meant to bring it with you. What is up?? Mercury retrograde!
The Moon is waxing this week. Emotional energy is building. Notice the gradual crescendo of emotion that culminates toward the end of the week. This is the energy of Mother Moon growing stronger and staying up later and later each night. As a result you will find that your dream state becomes more active as the week continues. You may find yourself becoming more of a night owl as well. It is hard to deny the emotional pull of the Moon. More and more information is revealed. More secrets are opening up. We become more brazen, more bold as the week goes on.
