jyotish planetary transits for the waxing moon cycle
On 5.30, Mercury moves to Ardra nakshatra at 6:30 am CDT; Rahu and Rudra (storm god) energy enlivens. Does he expand you into overwhelm and excessive cravings that lead to more frustration? Or can you temper his shadowy nature with focus and great planning?
Harness the momentum that can be felt right now. Write lists and “dump out your head” on paper to avoid mental overdrive. Set goals, prioritize and be potent in your actions. Overwhelm and mental spin can set in. It will be important over the next two weeks of Mercury in Ardra to attend to the emotional and physical bodies for grounding and support, rather then letting the mental body get away with its usual mayhem.
Pay attention to your emotions. Overwhelm? Anger? Exhaustion? Fear? This is a direct indication that your basic needs of support and nourishment are not being met. How can you find a different way to get the job done? How can you use self care to get your needs met? What paradigms need to shift in your relationships so that you can release some of the angst? Get embodied.
We are gearing up for two big planetary shifts. To start the process off, and get us “near the edge” of change, Rahu and Ketu move to sandhi degrees on 6.05. They will be less then two degrees each on the 5th which marks their “transition point”. We will start to feel their momentum now as they begin to shift into Virgo and Pisces respectively on July 12th.
Are you feeling the need to make major life changes and yet overwhelm simultaneously? Planets intensify as they leave a house, so be aware that the cravings of Rahu will likely be enlivened at this time, while Ketu’s desires for us to let go will force the issues at hand. Temper rash decisions. Use Saturn’s structure and need for slow and steady, in order to win the race in the coming weeks.
