June 26th’s dollop of dharma courtesy of the moon!

it's wednesday, june 26, & the word of the day is "psychopomp"! do i have your attention? ok, then, moon is finishing its transit around the zodiac & is now in the final nakshatra, the final section of piscean starspace, called revati. this starspace is ruled by the deity pushan, who is one of the adityas, or forms of the sun. he is sometimes described as driving the sun in its course across the sky [...]

June 25th’s dollop of dharma courtesy of the moon!

it's tuesday, june 25, & moon is still floating in etheric pisces, through the starspace called uttara bhadra, where it has been since yesterday afternoon. here we are trying to commune with something that is beyond, to that great beyond, that elusive mystery that contains multitudes, including ourselves. (see yesterday's post for more.) why would we feel inclined to do that? perhaps because we recognize that we are not our bodies, that we are literally [...]

June 24th’s dollop of dharma courtesy of the moon!

it's monday, june 24, & moon has moved into pisces, the last sign of the zodiac, where we take the final steps on our journey of spiritual transformation for this go-round (then start again, one mo' time), get a little closer to experiencing our infinite nature on a cellular level. ever have the feeling that you are in the world but not of it? welcome to pisces! moon is in the starspace called purva bhadra [...]

June 23rd’s dollop of dharma courtesy of the moon!

it's sunday, june 23, & moon is in aquarius, in the starspace known as shatabhishak until about noon-30 mountain time, when it moves into purva bhadra. aquarius creates the environment for us to connect to something beyond ourselves, to humanity at large. this step beyond ourselves is preparation for what is even more beyond ourselves, which is the metaphysical experience of being connected to all that is—but that'll happen tomorrow! shatabhishak means 100 doctors/healers & [...]

June 21st’s dollop of dharma courtesy of the moon!

happy summer solstice, the longest day of the year & the official beginning of summer! it's friday, june 21, & moon is in the starspace called dhanishta, which straddles capricorn & aquarius. the shakti of dhanishta is about feeling wealthy in body & mind, not necessarily in your bank account. i mean, as we all know (or are in the process of learning), the greatest wealth comes from creating value, from aligning with our values, [...]

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

it's thursday, june 20, & moon is in the starspace of capricorn called shravana. capricorn's planetary ruler, saturn, invites us to make peace with our tangible fears, look them in the face & make a plan to eradicate them, get quiet so we recognize them, & recognize that they are not us. shravana comes from the sanskrit verb that means to listen. in order to listen, we have to open our ears so we can [...]

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

it's wednesday, june 19, & moon is in the starspace called uttara ashadha, which is partly in sagittarius but mostly in capricorn. this is where the inspiration & optimism of sagittarius become serious business, become commitment & resolve in capricorn. uttara ashadha is the counterpart to yesterday's purva ashadha—the glimpse we caught yesterday of our higher purpose, of the soul gifts that lie within that must be expressed, become assimilated into our psyche today. thus [...]

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

it's tuesday, june 18, & moon is in the starspace of sagittarius called purva ashadha. sagittarius is where we find higher meaning & purpose, where we dig down into the beliefs that uplift us, that ring true. purva ashadha means "that which cannot be subdued" & it is here that, after making room yesterday with all of our uprooting, all of our weeding, we plant the seeds of new possibility, we own more of who [...]

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

it's monday, june 17, & moon is in the starspace of mula in the zodiac sign of sagittarius. sagittarius is where we feel the guru's grace, the upliftment when we align with something beyond ourselves, with our dharma, our offering to & in the world. mula means "root," & its energy invites us to uproot what doesn't serve our soul purpose, to get to the root of our obstacles/problems, whatever is standing in the way [...]

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

it's sunday, june 16, & moon is getting full, full, fullest in what my teacher sam is calling scorpittarius—b/c moon is in scorpio for most of its wax to ultimate fullness, but the exact point of its totally maxed-out brightness/full-to-burstingness is in sagittarius, at about 2:30 am mountain time. when it reaches that tipping/bursting point, it starts to wane. have you been feeling that scorpio energy all weekend, as i have? have you been getting [...]

June 14th’s dollop of dharma courtesy of the moon!

it’s friday, june 14, & the first order of business is a correction! yesterday i said that the moon was in its 13th waxing phase. later, i thought, "how could that be if there are 15 waxing (& 15 waning) phases & there's a full moon on monday?—the math does not work!" well, that's b/c yesterday was the 12th lunar phase! which is related to the sun, which hopefully brought some clarity, especially around your [...]
