it’s thursday, june 13, & moon is in the starspace of libra known as swati. libra wants harmony in our relationships, whether business or pleasure, wants it to be good for you & good for me—in other words, symbiotic. swati means “sword,” which we can use to bushwhack our way through obstacles so we can keep walking the path of our soul’s evolution or for purely destructive purposes, to serve ego or other pointless ends.
swati is ruled by the deity vayu, the wind god. like a sword, the wind can be gentle or fierce, can be a breeze that calms or a tornado that wreaks havoc. vayu was the father of hanuman, the monkey god. he represents what it means to be a true devotee, to be 100% in. in service to lord rama, he leaped over the ocean between india & sri lanka to save rama’s wife, sita, from the clutches of the demon ravana. hanuman was oblivious to his super powers but surrendered to his love for rama, trusted in it to allow him to complete his mission. which he did!
it is said that hanuman was soooooo devoted to rama & sita that his heart beat to the rhythm of their names, that when his chest was ripped open, you could see rama & sita sitting there.
so that’s the aspect of vayu, of the wind, you want to harness today, to channel your thoughts, which are carried on the wind, toward your highest purpose. & you want to use the sword to carve your own destiny, express your own uniqueness.
it’s the 13th phase of the waxing moon, which makes it a great good day to spend time with those who are near & dear, which is supported by harmony-loving libra.
& that’s your daily bliss—thursday is jupiter’s day, so whether you need inspiration to connect to your inner hanuman or not, you may want to touch base with your teachers & their teachings, honor them, show your gratitude.
