We are in the season of Libra. The themes resonating through this transit of the Sun are peace, balance, harmony, beauty, grace and partnership. It is a time to think about the importance of balance in your life. Where are you putting your attention? Are you too far weighted to one side (job, career) than the other (family, personal well-being). The two don’t need to be mutually exclusive, but they do require your keen attention and self-evaluation.
This week, the Moon is waxing. She is growing larger each night as she becomes visible in the sky just after sunset and then stays up later and later each night. As a result, this is a good time to cultivate dreams and move toward the goals that you set for yourself at the time of the New Moon this past weekend. As the Moon grows stronger every night, so can you.
The week is off to an emotional start thanks to the Moon’s entrance into Scorpio during the early morning hours. The stingers are out. People are seeking revenge. They have slowly and quietly been stockpiling information and filing it away like a computer. Now you may experience a sudden eruption – like a volcanic blow of emotion from things that have been festering deep down for quite a long time.
Tuesday is a good day to deal with the issues. Get to the heart of the matter. Dive into those taboo issues that have been buried deep down for so long. The time is right to finally talk about them. Clear the air. Free yourself from the burden of trying to hold on to painful emotions, secrets or stuck feelings. Get it all out, even if it means that the fur will fly.
Emotions mellow out on Wednesday and it would serve you well to take the high road. Observe the spiritual lessons can come out of all that you have dealt with and processed over the last few days. Seek a spiritual teacher, words of wisdom and/or a publication that might help to shed some good advice on the matter. “The Essential Element” by Jot Singh Khalsa is a great one to turn to at this time. After years of studying and practicing at the feet of the master, Yogi Bhajan, Jot has become a living example of the teachings that Yogiji has left for us.
The Moon continues its transit through Sagittarius on Thursday, asking us to step up and be the teacher. Elevate yourself and others in every situation you enter into. Practice what you know to be true. Remember the mantra sat nam with every breath.
The Moon is void-of-course for a period on Friday, asking us to be mindful of when we make decisions and when we postpone these things for another time. From 3:30am – 1:43pm EST (12:34am – 10:43am PST), the Moon is “in between” signs and we feel as if we have lost our sense of direction. Our intuition is out to lunch and it is best to stick only to routine tasks during this period.
People may be testy on Saturday as the Moon and Sun come head to head. This is the start of the 2nd quarter Moon, meaning that the Moon is halfway between New and Full. As a result, there is likely to be tension between the masculine and feminine polarities. Laziness clashes with goal-orientated viewpoints. There is an industrious feeling in the air. Part of you may want to get up and get going on projects that are important to you. On the other hand, there is a desire to just hang out and enjoy a good meal. Both are possible. Go ahead and get things done during the day so that you can enjoy yourself in the company of a loved one tonight. Despite the bit of friction in the air, Saturday night has the potential for spicy romance.
Sunday there is smooth sailing in the morning but we lose our sense of direction toward the evening hours. At 7:30pm EST (4:30pm PST), the Moon goes void-of-course and for the rest of the day we should refrain from making major decisions or plans.
