The Moon is at the start of her 4th quarter phase and she is waning. She is rising later and later in the sky every night, well past sundown, and each time she appears smaller and smaller in the night sky. As a result, we may feel our emotional reserves dwindling as the week goes on. It is a time to turn our attention inward and to choose yoga kriyas that are more meditative as opposed to those that are more physically challenging.
Editor’s Note: Try joining the Spirit Voyage 40-Day Sadhana starting January 29. It is a very gentle and meditative!
On Monday, the emotional Scorpio Moon calls for extremes. Go the extra mile. See things through to the finish line. Get to the heart of the matter instead of just dealing with the surface issues. There is plenty going on under the surface. Stop pretending that you don’t know about the events happening there. Bring the truth to light, regardless of how others may feel about it. After 5:39pm EST (2:39pm PST), the Moon goes void-of-course and our intuition goes haywire. Make no major decisions for the remainder of the day. Everyone feels off. Direction is unclear.
We have our wits about us once again when the Moon enters the next sign, which is at 9:33am EST (6:33am PST) on Tuesday morning. Suddenly you will feel as if your brain is “online” once more. You can trust your intuition again. The pathway is clear.
Elevate yourself on Wednesday. Consider adding a new set of mantras to your collection to help do the trick. Need a boost? Gurunam’s upbeat album, “The Journey Home” is a great one to chant along with in the car or while you are working around the house. Spirits are lifted automatically with the tracks such as, “Pavan Guru – Lord of the Wind” and the “Mul Mantra”.
The morning and first part of the afternoon on Thursday finds us in a good mood as the Sagittarius Moon continues to reign. Elevate yourself and others. This is a good time to attend a lecture or a class or a spiritual event on a topic that you are interested in. Seek the truth within yourself. Sagittarius is about higher learning, philosophy and religion. Check in with yourself. What is your spiritual practice? Do you have one? Do you have a daily sadhana? How often do you do it? Maybe it is time to consider what is realistic for you in terms of a daily routine that you can commit to. Can you carve out a little piece of your day to meditate for 3 minutes? 11 minutes? At 5:33pm EST on Thursday afternoon (2:33pm PST), the Moon goes void-of-course and for the next 2 hours and 15 minutes, we feel as if we are lost in a fog. Take a break from any important duties, decisions or conversations and stick only to routine tasks during this time.
Friday is a good day to get things done. Our focus is strong and determined. The Moon in Capricorn keeps us grounded and practical in our approach. Make a list of things you need to get done and you will accomplish them all.
Saturday is another very productive day. In addition to the fact that the Moon is in Capricorn, the sign associated with Saturn, the great taskmaster, but Saturday is also known as “Saturn’s Day”, thus further enforcing the wisdom and discipline of this wise teacher. Get things done! Make repairs around the house of all the things that need fixing. Do you have a pile of clothing that needs mending? This is the time to sit down and actually do it.
