Happy Moon Day, the real Mothers Day!
THE MOON IS RECEPTIVE, sensitive and has a BEAUTIFUL IMAGINATION is CREATIVE and changeable.
Mothers Day should really be today on Monday because Moon is the karaka (significator) for the Mother, water and nurturing. She is full, fullness in her beauty to reflect the sun. She represents herbs and plants, it is her soft nature we all look for in life that nurtures all things to grow.
The moon is Soma and produces the nectar of immortality. Depending on how strong your moon is it will determine how much juice (rasa) you will get from the moon or Soma in this life. A full moon in your birth chart will provide more juice (rasa) in your life. Each day the moon has a different flavour.
The Moon (Chandra) displays our likes and dislikes, our emotional (manas) mind nature, she is the Queen of the Universe. We refer to her as She but in Vedic Astrology she is a he named Chandra and he is male, the Nakshatra’s ( Chandra’s lunar mansions is where he meets the feminine aspects of the moon) his shakti’s reside here.
The moon is loved by everybody he is a benefic when he is bright and can be considered weak or malefic, not to our benefit when he is a dark moon because a dark moon means (a Kali Moon) our deep inner subconscious is reflected outward and when this happens it is not an easy process).
The moon moves quickly around the zodiac, just about every day he has moved to a new Nakshatra or lunar mansion where his 27 brides reside.
The moon is a huge study and there is much involved in this ocean. This is but a drop. I will elaborate more later. There are many teaching tales and the moon and the nakshatra’s are core to Indian Astrology. The Panchanga (5 measurements) of the moon shows the monthly positions and cycles. The Panchanga consists of weekdays varana, 27 nakshatra, 30 tithi, karana, and 27 Soli-lunar combinations yoga.
Rahu (the north node of the moon) and Ketu (the south node of the moon) are very closely connected to the moon. Eclipses involve the moon. The moon is very important in our life and it is important to understand where your moon was when you were born.
The moon is a huge subject, just as women are a huge subject because women are ruled by the moon! The ebb and flow of the tides.
