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.
On Monday, the energy is feisty and energetic. There may be fighting in the lines at the checkout counters as people race towards the finish line of holiday shopping. There is a competitive edge in the air. You may notice it out on the roadways. People are more aggressive than usual. This is the Aries Moon at work. Spend some time at the gym or walking outdoors this afternoon. Find a way to get your own pent up aggression out in a healthy manner.
On Tuesday, the Moon in Taurus encourages us to slow down. Take stock in what you have instead of being so wrapped up in what you don’t have. This is a day to relax and enjoy good food and music. Light candles, fluff up the pillows, and enjoy special time with the one you love. If you are looking for a new album to put on to help inspire a romantic evening, try Mantras for Divine Union.
Wednesday’s energy calls for stubborn skies and follow-through. This is a good day to simply get things done. Get grounded, and stay focused. You have a determination that just won’t quit. Take advantage of this energy and see things through to the end. Finish writing your holiday cards and finish taking care of the bills that need to be paid before the end of the year. Keep in mind that there is also a stubborn energy present on this day. You may butt heads with others. People are not likely to budge. That’s okay. Don’t push too hard. The more you do, the more resistance you will face.
The energy can be scattered on Thursday with the Gemini Moon presiding. This is a good day for communication. Ideas are flowing. On the flip side, we can be so engaged in what other people are doing that we forget to take care of ourselves and our own needs. Don’t get caught up in the gossip. Stay focused on the sat nam.
Friday is Winter Solstice! This is the longest night of the year for those in the Northern Hemisphere. For the next six months, the days will gradually be getting longer. For those in the Southern Hemisphere, the reverse is true. This is a good day to plant seeds. Let your wishes be known. The Sun moves into Capricorn at this time, a sign associated with setting goals and being disciplined. Recommit to your personal sadhana and whatever other healthy habits you wish to cultivate in the New Year.
Saturday is the day of the Full Moon, exact at 12:49pm EST (9:49am PST). The Sun and the Moon are exactly opposite each other, creating a powerful emotional charge. Truth is exposed. People are more likely to come out of their shells and really shine. Information is illuminated. Our intuition is sharp. Trust your instincts. Make a move. Go for it.
On Sunday, the Cancer Moon encourages to stay home and relax. Get cozy with the one you love. Enjoy good homemade food. We are all feeling more sensitive than usual. Connect with your Mother. Connect with the water element. People are feeling vulnerable. Be a good listener. By listening, you comfort others. Enjoy time with the ones you love. Take a long bubble bath.
