In your heart I see the star of every night and every day
In your eyes I get lost, I get washed away
Just as long as I'm here in your arms
I could be in no better place - Tina Turner
It is my hope that we are all feeling a little relief from the past few moon cycles? The moon has temporarily broken the lock of the karmic axis so we may feel like our hearts and heads are lighter and...ours again. When we are in the Kal Sarpa (karmic axis) we tend to feel very powerless and at the mercy of the universe. Sure this is a fundamental truth always yet it can be individually disempowering and even more so discombobulating for our little human brains. Now that I sound like Mary Poppins let's chim chimmery on!
Your spoonful of sugar my chimney sweeps this moon is to think about what you really want to do today. I have a feeling we have all been pretty hard on ourselves of late - trying to figure out where we are going, what's the best direction to go in and why we can't get there yet. Under the Purva Phalguni moon we are in the mood to enjoy the best of life - so if it doesn't feel like you're having fun you're going in the wrong direction. Over the next two nights the sun is providing light for the moon to sing a merrier tune. Even more so with this full moon it is time to be in a state of expectant allowance - it's a good moment to replenish or rest. Two symbols of this moon are the hammock (where we rest and enjoy often on holiday) and the lovers bed (where we can most certainly enjoy ourselves). But you can see how these symbols reflect a dual energy of both rest and enjoyment.
Here in Sydney the sun is warmly shining, the ocean is refreshing and the day is still young to put a smile on your face. Go out (or in if you have better plans ;) and find some sweet relief!

"When it feels like the world is on your shoulders
And all of the madness has got you going crazy
It's time to get out, step out into the street
Where all of the action is right there at your feet
I know a place where we can dance the whole night away
Underneath electric stars
Just come with me and we can shake your blues right away
You'll be doing fine when the music starts.
To the beat of the rhythm of the night
Dance until the morning light
Forget about the worries on your mind
You can leave them all behind" - DeBarge
There is a cycle to things. A rhythm. A beat. If only one can tune in and listen. To calibrate and hear this current that surrounds and surges within us all one needs to become attuned to the subtle yet profound energy of nature. Nature is more than the plants and trees. Nature is the reflection of the divine energy moving within everything. In vedic wisdom this is called Shakti.
The new moon is complete at 6:05am AEDT tomorrow. As this cycle or rhythm of the last new moon comes to a close it ignites the next. This Dhanista new moon promises something new. A new pulse to drive you forward out of the past few months. Of course as I've said we are saturated with sidereal Capricorn energy bringing in an abundance of earth energy. So this is physical, earthbound, material but this doesn't have to be devoid of spirit or connection. In fact the connection to shakti can be even more accessible if you can find it in your day to day life, in your body and of course in nature. With Mercury retrograding back into Sravana with Venus, Jupiter and Saturn it is an opportunity to listen before you begin your journey ahead this month creating your own sound - otherwise you run the risk of being out of sync or making pure noise. When you can hear the shakti is when you can move forward dancing into graceful music, a skip in your step that leads you onto the adventure of life ahead in February.
