Soooo moon is currently a little depressed last night and throughout today – after being full and bright and happy in scorpio joining its great friend Jupiter, the mood has shifted and who is feeling a little withdrawn and internal, either ruminating on some past thing or feel sad, listless or even floaty or flat?
That would be influenced by Saturn and the south node of the moon. Saturn places restrictions and highlights our limitations, Ketu separates us from things. The moon, being mind and emotions could mean that some may not be wanting to feel very much these next few days, and that’s very much ok – avoid making any major decisions till after Friday morning. Moon is our intuition and feeling state, so take this time to use the emotional detachment to observe and reflect, there is no need to grasp onto every emotion and thought that visits your mind… it will pass, it is just a visitor.
I am still in the middle of writing about how astrology actually works, according to my own studies, research and observation over the years, but in short, the planets’s movements affect our subtle energies according to their/our inner elements. Since we are wholly interconnected to all of existence through our causal, mental, emotional and physical bodies, our internal feeling states are always subject to the push and pulls of the planetary motions. The yogic sciences are designed to illuminate our true nature beyond the limitations of personality, allowing us to become less affected by external forces.
We are slowly approaching a planetary war on the 14th of June, complete with retrogrades, meaning that soon the planets who’s energies are inharmonious with each other will be in a highly antagonistic relationship. Here on earth this translates as a time where we ought to pay extra, extra attention on the roads especially, to our tempers, to frustrations which lead to impulsive and reckless actions, anger that seethes and erupts, and generally things not going the way we want them to.
It is also a time which is conducive to working hard, finishing off projects, or seeking closure on the past, staying humble, doing the inner work and making friends with our dragons and demons. For most of this year the theme is about letting go – exploring the inner self, surrendering deeply into what scares, hurts or irritates us, fanning the flames of anger with the coolness of calm and deep breathing, of quiet nights, long baths and deep meditations.
In keeping with the letting go theme this year, what are you ready to drop? What has become too heavy? If your back hurts, ask yourself why you are carrying all those burdens? Be free, have the courage to let it go and be contented, in the here and now.
Love, Darinka X
I have studied Jyotish for a number of years and have gained so much from applying the insights and knowledge to my life. To me, life is an adventure, an exploration of the universe, self and others. If you like what you read and would like to know more about your own chart and how the planetary energies are affecting you personally, I offer consultations in person or over skype.
