it’s wednesday, january 8, & moon is in the starspace called mrigashira, which occupies a sky-slice of taurus-gemini. moon doesn’t move into the gemini portion until about 3 pm mountain time, so we’ll be feeling the taurean effects in the first part of the day, the geminian the latter & maybe even how they are connected. let’s see: taurus likes to share the good things in life with loved ones, gemini likes to share ideas & interests, get into the curiosity zone with others, spread the word. you could say that between taurus & gemini there is a shift from body & the senses to the intellect & mind, but that we’re still all about connecting, albeit through different media.
mrigashira is the wandering deer & is ruled by soma, the nectar of immortality incarnate, that which we, or those of us who are seekers, are looking for. of course, even those of us who are not spiritual seekers are usually seeking something, even if it’s just a better job or a bigger house or a soul mate, right? the nature of being human is to be sort of dissatisfied with what we’ve got, enabled, of course, by advertising. but, hey, sapiens have been seeking out & conquering new territory since forever. why did columbus sail the ocean blue if not for something more or better? why did dorothy travel to oz?
the vedic astrologer dr arjun pai says mrigashira is a GPS—a god positioning service. that’s the highest vibration of this asterism. that’s the allure, the draw, of soma: the yearning to be gods, to know god consciousness. how’s your GPS working?
it’s the thirteenth lunar day, which is related to desire & happiness. the twilight period before & after sunset on the thirteenth lunar day is also considered an auspicious time for meditation, b/c lord siva is the most cheerful then & so the most likely to share his energies.
wednesday is ruled by mercury, making this a day for communication & curiosity. if you are a mercury-ruled soul, that is, if you are a gemini or virgo in the vedic system of astrology, which is what i share about in these posts, you may feel especially curious & communicative today. if you don’t know your vedic sign, feel free to email or pm me & i can help you out there.
jyotish, vedic astrology, is the science of light. i’d love to help you shine more light on your life but i’m taking a wee break from readings to be a support for my family. stay tuned! ~.~
