The Moon will be directly across from the Sun at 3:45 pm Hawaii Time on Saturday, January 23rd in the Moon's own sign of Cancer in the nakshaktra of Pushya, "The Nourisher". Pushya is represented by the udder of a cow, showing that this star cluster is a place to replenish our spirit with the soul food it so desperately needs. The Moon is herself the Mother and thus the sign of Cancer is where we feel held, nurtured, cared for, without judgement or reciprocity. When we are with our Mother she feeds us, bathes us in her loving light and allows us to be safe like children. Try to nurture yourself today, and nourish your soul. Dip in a hot bath or take a swim in the ocean, Cancer the Crab loves the water and the ruling planet of Pushya, Saturn is drying so some water therapy will feel delicious! The deity of the nakshaktra is Brihaspati, who eventually became the planet Jupiter and became exalted here, thus this is a place of great wisdom and learning. Pushya is a wonderful nakshatra for starting new projects, as Saturn offers us the perseverance and the Moon and Jupiter, the nurturance and inspiration necessary to lift your dreams to reality.
Meanwhile, across the sky is the Sun in Capricorn, taking our sense of Responsibility to its height in the diligent, resourceful sign ruled by Saturn. Here we work hard and in the direction of attainment; practical and earthy, Capricorn is where we keep our eye on the ball and work for what we want. This is a wonderful time to get your goals off of your lists and into your life, but the Full Moon represents a time of balancing the energy of the Sun, and in this case that is a balance between what is in our hearts, our home life and self-nurturance, and what we need to do in the world to get ahead. If we can find a way to maintain our outer responsibilites and our inner heart's desire, then we can achieve lasting success, where we are emotionally aligned with our external actions. Aho to that!
Venus moved into Sagittarius on January 18th, and is joining a Retrograde Mercury who has moved back into Sagittarius itself. This is causing us to shift our energy in Relationships with others to a more Inspiring and Expansive tone, rather than the probing and controlling vibe of Venus in Scorpio joined Saturn. While Mars is still in Venus' sign of Libra, we may still have some tips for others on how they could be more disciplined, but the overall experience we are having is one of Reflection right now with both Mercury and Jupiter Retrograde. We are musing and meandering through what we've learned, what we know, and what we are taking in right now as both Buddhi, our Intellect, and Guru, our Wisdom, are slowing down so much in relationship to our Earth's speed that they appear to be moving backwards.
The Nodes of the Moon are continuing to shift towards their new houses and will be completely in the Leo/Aquarius axis January 29th. We are moving into the next year and a half with Rahu, the north node of the Moon in the sign of Leo, the proud lion who is king of the land. Rahu is where we find ourselves obsessing and focusing much energy. It has an erratic childishness that feels uncertain, a magnifying effect on wherever it is, and a foreign feeling, where we are not seeing things clearly in the material realm. This means we will collectively be focusing more on our Power, Authority, Strength, and Leadership, individually it will fall in different areas of our life based on the house Leo is in in your natal chart (i.e.; career, relationships etc). Regardless of the house, it will be a step into your Soul Power because Leo is ruled by the Sun. Ketu, the south node of the Moon, will be in Aquarius, giving us the exact opposite side of the spectrum; great insight and capability but very little interest. Ketu is where we pull away from things of this world, and collectively, in the sign of Aquarius, this means Humanitarian Visions, Progressive Advancement, and Humility. This is an alignment that will have our world see a big step up in power, government and big business, and a move away from some of the more socially conscious activity that has been taking center stage. On a personal level, we need to be aware of becoming to Queenly or Kingly ourselves. If we choose to wield power, we need to understand what the greater purpose is behind that power. Jupiter is in his retrograde motion in Leo, and has been in Leo since last July. This brings inspiration and hope and expansion to our governments and personal systems of power, but it also brings a conservatism and religiousness to our Beliefs and Ideals, making them intrinsically less-expansive. This Retrograde period is especially important for us to really understand what belief systems we are following and what they look like in action out in the world. It is also important for us to Reflect on our own Power and why we want it. What makes us feel alive, and like it is worth standing up for, and what do we need to become ourselves in order to hold that power in a clean way, where we are a conduit for something greater than ourselves, rather than a mouthpiece for our ego. This will be a year and a half where we will learn a lot about ourselves and one another and what true leadership really looks like. Hare Ohm
