Full moon 20/21 + Equinox – 23rd.
Times change, a cycle completes, others still revolving and evolving. New beginnings, seasons are changing. The movement from dark to light in the south, the movement from light to dark in the north. Equinox is about the balance between the solar and lunar forces. This is the purpose of yoga – balancing the hemispheres, the ascending and descending channels, the masculine & feminine, Shiva and Shakti – Stillness & Movement …
This Pisces full moon projects the potent, combined energy of Jupiter and Saturn. These two planets reflect the nature of one’s beliefs and values and how this influences how we create structures and foundations in life. Pisces full moon opposes the Sun in Virgo – Virgo is the sign most related to Shakti – the primordial feminine power which is in all manifested things. Virgo carries the seeds of enlightenment which express in the last sign of Pisces. The Pisces / Virgo axis hinges on the principles of faith over fear. With such an overwhelming fear narrative being projected into the world right now, reflecting Jupiter’s debilitation, and the subsequent seizing of control by governments, we must continue to cultivate faith on a daily basis, consciously choosing to face the deepest fears with courage, strength, aligning with Dharma – righteousness aligned with universal laws, not just man-made laws and religions.
Jupiter governs Pisces, Saturn governs Uttara Bhadrapada. Both of these planets are currently retrograde in Capricorn. This conjunction is nearing an end, after being together for the better part of the 12 months. Jupiter will stay in Capricorn for the next 8 weeks, turning direct on the 18th of October. It is a time for constructive growth, promotion and steady gains. While there may be changes in investments, stocks and income, it is a practical time favouring material development. Make sure your actions are ethical, and aligned with the right values. The Jupiter/ Saturn connection is about Dharma + Karma, reaping the consequences of actions sowed. When aligning with universal laws, truth, awareness, accountability, respect, love and integrity, one has little to fear.
With a strong earth/water dominant theme right now, it is a time of building, growing, expanding, contrasting, organising, planning and re-arranging. Our goals are being re-assessed, businesses, organisations and social & family structures are changing and adapting to the current paradigm shift. Foundations are being now. Whatever tools, bricks and mortar you have, find the best way to use it. The most content folk make the best of what they have.
Uttara Bhadrapada’s deity is Ahir Budhanya – the serpent of the deep sea, connected to primordial wisdom, fertility, seclusion and spirituality. Ahir Budhanya is said to be one of the sons of Vishawakarma, the celestial architect, there is much symbolism here around the need for definite structure (saturn) to make practical use of space (jupiter); the dance of spirit in matter.
The Shakti, or power of this star is in creating, or finding a foundation – “Uttara Bhadrapada grants a firm foundation in life, connecting us with the wellsprings of vitality, the serpent who dwells in the middle of the sea.” – Dr. David Frawley, Fruits of Worshipping Each Nakshatra
It is important to acknowledge that all which is created on a material plane occurs due to the concurrent universal energy, the energy which animates all things. Release yourself from identifying with ‘the doing’ and see the undercurrent force by which things get done. Dig deeper. Enlightenment doesn’t mean the end, but rather, the beginning of a deeply embodied and grounded, visceral human/spirit experience. Every day, even for 5 mins, make an effort to connect to the deep inner spring of the life force pulsing through you, Prana; through your breath, a candle flame and silence.
Keep a routine, self care, nurturing, healing and wellbeing. Your Health and Time are your most precious jewels. Mind them well.
We are all walking eachother home
Bright Blessings on this Full moon / Equinox
