The mood on Monday is telling us to slow down and take it easy. Slow and steady wins the race. Be patient and wait. Remember what Yogi Bhajan says, “patience pays.” Let this be your mantra for the start of the week. Don’t be too eager to go after things that you think you want. Instead, let things come to you. At work, take your time and be vigilant. Stay grounded and practical. Be conservative with your energy. Also be aware of what you are putting into your body. There is a desire to overindulge. Resist the urge to grab that donut.
The big news on Tuesday is the exact alignment of the New Moon. This is the time when the Sun and the Moon come together in the same sign, thus marking the start of a brand new lunar cycle. The New Moon is a time to let go. Be conscious of those things that do not serve you anymore. What are those habits that you’ve been wanting to let go of? What are some of the new habits that you want to establish? Let this New Moon be your starting point. Take a conscious stock of your life and be honest with yourself. If you are looking to begin a new 40-day kriya or meditation, this is the day to begin.
The Gemini Moon on Wednesday is telling us to reach out and connect with others. Communicate. Furthermore, Wednesday is the day of Mercury, the planet of the mind and short-range travel. All signs are pointing toward the importance of reaching out and sharing ideas with others. Just don’t let things get too far in the realm of gossip. Keep yourself in check. If it’s none of your business, let it go. It’s none of your business!
There is a significant void-of-course period in the afternoon on Thursday that you should look out for. From 2:18pm – 5:47pm EST (11:18am – 2:47pm PST), the Moon is in her “in between” stage in which we feel as if we have lost our sense of direction. Our intuition is out to lunch. As a result, it is best that we make no major plans or decisions during this time. Take a siesta. Indulge in a long lunch break. Stick to routine tasks only. During the evening hours, enjoy time at home. A nice meal will go a long way in easing tensions from the day.
Treat someone to a special dish on Friday. Make a nice meal for your family. There is no need to go out this Friday night in order to find adventure. There is plenty to be grateful for and to enjoy right in the comfort of your own home. The Moon is encouraging us to stay in and enjoy time with family. Your Mother is of special importance. Do something nice for her. Maybe she would enjoy a new CD to have playing in her home. Consider the album by Snatam Kaur and her mother Prabhu Nam Kaur, Mother’s Blessing.
The morning starts out nice and cozy on Saturday. The Cancer Moon is encouraging us to enjoy our beds as long as possible. Breakfast in bed? Yes! Great idea. Connect with your feminine side. People are feeling sensitive and vulnerable. Use this time to share intimacies with the one you love. At 5:14pm EST (2:14pm PST), the Moon goes void-of course- and for the next two hours we may feel out of sorts. We have lost our sense of direction. Our intuition is offline. During the evening, the mood is festive and jovial. Go out on the town and dance. Wear attention-getting clothing. Let your hair done. Let yourself shine.
The news on Sunday has to do with the Sun’s entrance into Gemini. For the next four weeks, the background energy is set by this solar transit through the mutable air sign. It is a time to socialize. It is a time to enjoy the company of good friends. Host parties, attend parties, have fun with people in your neighborhood. Connect with people you haven’t talked to in a while. Keep conversation light. Explore new ideas and hobbies that catch your attention.
