The Moon is Full in the star of Uttara Phalguni on Wednesday March 20th at 6:43 pm PST. Uttara Phalguni bridges Leo and Virgo and is the star of Contracts, Wedding Vows, and Friendship Agreements. It is an auspicious star to be married under and is said to be the star in which Shiva and Parvati were wed. We are in the Virgo part of this nakshatra, highlighting themes of exacting methods, categorizing, organizing and discernment. The Sun has just entered sidereal Pisces just last week and while the New Moon cycle has not yet occurred, we have been feeling ourselves get more spacey and spiritual, perhaps. This Full Moon is a counter-balance that energetic of fluidity and connection to source, using distinction and categories to find the facts versus the fiction. While Pisces is floating above, seeing the big picture, Virgo is more interested in the details.
This is also the holiday of Holi in India, the Festival of Colors, which ushers in Spring with a full on celebration in the entire country where people throw colors on each other and everywhere. The celebration of Holi is said to be a triumph of the light over the dark, as Spring takes over Winter. To hear the story of Prahlad and Holika watch the video!
Right now we have powerful one-way gazes from each of the outer planets to their own sign! Mars is gazing at Jupiter in its own sign of Scorpio offering courage, strength and discipline to our spiritual growth. Jupiter is giving his grace, wisdom and expansiveness to the Sun in Pisces, and Saturn is offering humility, a willingness to do the time and slow down to a retrograde Mercury that has just travelled back to Aquarius. Mercury will be retrograde until the 28th, and while it is super frustrating to be delayed in our communications, we can have the patience and humility to slow down and learn from our mistakes, and perhaps even listen!
The nodal axis is about to shift! In the next few days we will see the jump into the Gemini/Sagittarius axis in the world and in our lives. Keep your eyes out for the FREE report I will be sending you with the Nodal Axis for You and your sign! If you haven’t signed up for my newsletter than you will miss out!
Happy Holi and Full Moon!
