Oooo. Hmmm. When a new moon enters into Ashlesha with its ruler Mercury joining and Saturn opposite in Shravana in the sky one needs to take stock. Just beyond midnight on Sunday (technically Monday) we find ourselves entangled in the embrace of our inner desires. Any one else feeling a building in intensity? A fire or irritation from the shadows ignored ready to be unleashed or even strike at the drop of a dust mite? Ashlesha is a very potent moon with much to share (kundalini, depth of intelligence and sexuality to name just a few) but in the wrong hands (or the wrong time of the day) it can be disastrous. With the shakti of the snake to inflict poisonous venom there is the potential to explode emotionally and verbally inflicting pain - yet this could be avoided if the energy of this new moon is channelled appropriately.
I look to Saturn across the skies as an antidote. Saturn is strong at the moment in its own sign and has the patience to listen in Shravana. Shravana has the symbol of the ear and tells you with all this poison/segregation/separation/polarity around us in the world when we externalise or project upon an other or subject it is only a mirror of what we hate within. And this new moon conjures words with passion like lust, hate, intensity, obsession and pain. Now back to the ear - if one could only take a breath, LISTEN to what is arising, feeling the sensations in the body and mind - yes those intense and desperately uncomfortable feelings, thoughts and desires that you have - the ones you don't even want to admit to that you have that you despise in an other - if you can feel that potency that boils up and instead of lashing out or exploding/reacting you allow it to be there. You love it. You use it. Saturn is your guide this new moon to consciously unavoid and see. For it is this poison that is within us all is your way to heal and contain the power of the universe.
