September 22nd’s dollop of dharma courtesy of the moon!

it's sunday, september 22, & moon is in the starspace called ardra, which is in gemini. gemini invites us to pursue our interests, especially intellectual ones or especially in an intellectual manner, like doing more research/study on something that sparks our imagination or pondering a new approach to, say, an art project. but then gemini wants to talk about it, wants us to share the insights we've unpacked, wants us to spread the knowledge, in [...]

September 20th’s dollop of dharma courtesy of the moon!

it's friday, september 20, & moon is in the starspace called rohini, which is in taurus. taurus is ruled by venus, who just wants us to be happy. alas, we're not really here to be happy, we're here to discover the truth of our existence. however, if we are going to focus on being happy, the highest expression of happiness is to be happy for no damn reason. which is dependent on groking the truth [...]

September 19th’s dollop of dharma courtesy of the moon!

it's thursday, september 19, & moon is in the starspace called krittika, which starts in aries & ends in taurus. moon is already in the taurus portion of this nakshatra now, having slipped over the border while we were asleep. so mind is starting the day supported by taurus, where it feels grounded & comfortable—earthly pleasures encourage that & so does sharing those pleasures with others, which is what venus's rulership brings to this sign. [...]

September 18th’s dollop of dharma courtesy of the moon!

it's wednesday, september 18, & moon is in the starspace called bharani, which is in aries. i said quite a bit about aries yesterday, so maybe i'll just mention that aries energy is about new beginnings, about striking out on our own, feeling our own power & sense of individuality & putting it out into the world. & that it is best done, as everything is, mindfully. bharani means "cherishing," "supporting," "nourishing," & it is [...]

September 17th’s dollop of dharma courtesy of the moon!

it's tuesday, september 17, & moon, which has started another journey around the zodiac, is in the starspace called ashwini, which is in aries, the first sign of the natural zodiac. aries is a sign of action, energy & enthusiasm. aries loves to start things, but then has a propensity to lose interest in other stuff that was started & maybe not bring those projects to completion. symbolized by a ram, that head-down, head-butter, aries [...]

September 16th’s dollop of dharma courtesy of the moon!

it's monday, september 16, & moon is in the starspace of pisces called revati. pisces is the last sign of the natural zodiac & revati is the last nakshatra of the last sign of the zodiac, so the last nakshatra of the zodiac. which means: there's a sense of completion, of having gone one more round with the cosmos. but as we know, there is no real end until our mortal end—we just keep going [...]

September 15th’s dollop of dharma courtesy of the moon!

it's sunday, september 15, & moon is in the starspace of pisces called uttara bhadra until early afternoon, then moves into revati. pisces is a water sign & is symbolized by two fishes, who are deeply submerged in this watery environment. water is our feeling nature, our heart energy, our emotional body. the two fishes represent this world & the world beyond, & piscean energy definitely invites us to explore what is beyond our material [...]

September 13th’s dollop of dharma courtesy of the moon!

it's friday, september 13, & moon is in the starspace called purva bhadra, where it is going to be full, full, full tonight. most of this asterism is in aquarius & that's the part of the sky where we'll experience the full moon, but moon will move into pisces in the weeeeeee hours tomorrow morning. the full moon in aquarius is opposite the sun in leo, asking us to harmonize our sense of individual, personal [...]

September 12th’s dollop of dharma courtesy of the moon!

it's thursday, september 12, & moon is in the starspace of aquarius called shatabhishak, so we're still asking not what we can do for ourselves but we can do for our country. good day/night for, say, a democratic presidential debate, so all those candidates can share their vision for turning this country—& planet!—around. like maybe getting out of the freaking race for the #1 job cause they're not going to win & show us they [...]

September 11th’s dollop of dharma courtesy of the moon!

it's wednesday, september 11, & moon is in the starspace called dhanishtha, which straddles the signs of capricorn & aquarius, harmonizing those two energies: capricorn's self-reflection about what is or isn't working in our immediate environment gets turned outward in aquarius, where we focus on making a positive influence on the world at large (or at least larger than the world of ourselves). aquarian energy is about sharing our gifts with the world to make [...]

September 10th’s dollop of dharma courtesy of the moon!

it's tuesday, september 10, & moon is in the shravana portion of capricorn's skyspace. capricorn invites us to get serious, to turn inward. it's great energy for meditation, as its ruler, saturn, is really good with getting still & quiet & not being distracted by worldly pursuits. it's not that saturn doesn't want us to have fun, he just wants to keep us safe, so this could be a good time to reflect on whether [...]
