The week starts on a New Moon. It is a time for new beginnings. It is a time to look inward and reflect. What do you need to let go of? What would you like to invite in? What do you need to change? What do you need to do differently? This is a time to plant new seeds. It is a time to begin a new 40-day practice. If you are looking to jump-start your sadhana, this is the day to begin. Create a plan that you know you can commit to. Even if it is just 3 minutes a day, pick a meditation that you resonate with. Make a plan and stick to it. Furthermore, if you are looking to let go of a habit that no longer serves you, this is the day to call it quits once and for all. Maybe you want to give up sugar, smoking, or processed foods. Maybe you want to give up gambling, overspending, or negative self-talk. Be creative. Do the work. Take the time to truly self-examine and ask yourself what you would like to change in your life.
The theme now is balance. On Monday, the Moon and the Sun are both in the balanced sign of Libra. There is a call for justice – both on a global level and on an interpersonal level. What do you need to do in order to bring peace and justice into your world? Start with yourself. How can you cultivate more peace and harmony in your home? With your family? With your co-workers? Perhaps the scales are weighing heavily on one side. Something needs to shift. Be willing to commit to a long-lasting change.
The Moon goes void-of-course on Tuesday morning, setting the stage for a topsy-turvy day. Our intuition is off and we have lost our sense of direction. This is not a good day to make decisions or hold strategy meetings at work. Instead, stick to routine tasks. Continue with things that are already underway. Interactions with others are off as well. We are dancing with partners who don’t know the steps. The result is that we keep stepping on each other’s toes.
The Moon is back on track on Wednesday, making way for clearer thinking and determination. This is a day to investigate the issues and get to the heart of the matter. Look below the surface. Take a look at the root cause instead of the symptoms. It is a day to do things with passion. Give it your all.
The energy is intense and emotional on Thursday thanks to the Moon in Scorpio. Stingers might come out. Skeletons in the closet may be rearing their heads. Remember that Scorpio deals with the issues involving sex, life, death and transformation. These themes are apt to arise at this time. Help to soothe the mind with mantra. Akyanna’s album, “Light in the Darkness: Meditations for Transformation” may be just the thing that your soul is craving at this time. Tracks to “Remove Inner Conflights” (Humee Hum Brahm Hum) and “Create a Divine Shield of Positivity” (Ma) are truly quenching to the mind.
There is a positive, uplifting feeling in the air on Friday thanks to the Moon in transformative Sagittarius. This is a time to take the high road – and bring others along with you. The truth helps. Don’t be afraid to speak out loud and clear, even if it might ruffle some feathers to do so.
Romance is in the air on Saturday. Take your loved one out on a grand adventure. Be creative. Any outdoor activity will be especially rewarding. You can earn big points with the one you love by preparing a picnic and sharing it somewhere special.
Sleep in on Sunday and don’t make any big plans or decisions in the morning. The Moon is void-of-course until 3:17pm EST (12:17pm PST) so before that time, stick to routine tasks only. In the afternoon, take care of tasks around the house and make a plan for the week ahead. Consider creating a budget. Look at ways you can cut down in certain areas in order to have resources for things that you truly desire.
