Embrace Your Emotions: Monday’s Moon Energy

Written by Jamie Epstein

It’s Monday, June 17, & Moon is in Libra, in the starspace or Nakshatra called Swati. Libra vibrates with the frequency of being in relationship, which is the human condition. We are social animals & it is through socializing, noticing what others reflect back to us about ourselves, that we better know who we are &, if we do something productive & empowering with that information, how we are evolving, whether we are becoming better, more improved, versions of ourselves.

“Someone once told me, ‘everybody comes into a relationship with baggage. You can either trip over each other’s stuff, or unpack it together.’ And that really hit me. The right person will help you unpack.”—Soul Scribbler

That’s not to say that our people are meant to be our therapists, or us theirs—no, we each get to do that work outside the relationship. It just means that our people will hold space for us, judgment-free, & we will do the same for them.

Are you tripping over someone’s stuff or them over yours, or are you helping each other put the dirty stuff in the laundry & put the clean stuff away?

Swati is ruled by Vayu, who rules our inner winds, our prana, our vital life force, & was hanuman’s dad. Hanuman famously harnessed his inner winds, focused them like mad, in service to Rama, to whom he was devoted, which gave him the power to overcome his own self-doubts & limiting beliefs & leap over the ocean (!) to rescue Rama’s beloved, Sita, from the ten-headed demon Ravana. This asterism brings a lesson about what we are devoted to & whether we are focusing our vital life force on it. Pranayama can help!

It’s the eleventh lunar day (tithi), the eleventh phase of the waxing moon, which supports spiritual practices, the point of them being to help us connect to what’s highest in us. It’s a good day to fast or get quiet, meditate, draw our attention inward, away from external distractions, & find that peaceful place within, so we can recalibrate, see life as it is rather than how we wish it were.

Monday is ruled by the Moon, who gives us the ability to feel & wants us to feel all of our feelings, to max out (if that’s even possible) our emotional capacity, b/c the lower we swing the higher we can swing.

And that’s your daily bliss! which is a sort of lunar weather report. May it allow you to align with the day’s cosmic energy so you can find & create a little more bliss.
