We are coming down from last week’s high associated with the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse. The Moon is waning, and so is our emotional energy. As the week starts out you may feel emotionally charged but as the weekend approaches, you may feel as if your emotional reserves are being depleted. Don’t push yourself too hard.
Having a hard time getting to sleep this week? Do you find yourself staying up later and later? Is your dream state more active than usual? Does everyone around you seem to be acting “loony”? That’s because the Moon is waxing to her fullest point this week.
The Moon is in a waxing phase. She is getting bigger and bigger and rising later and later each night. Our energy is growing. It is a time to nurture the goals that we set for ourselves at the time of the Aquarius New Moon last week. With each passing day be sure to put effort into developing the seed that you planted.
As we come into this period of the lunar cycle it is best to chose yoga kriyas that are more meditative and introspective as opposed to practicing sets that are more physically challenging. This is a time to go inward and nourish the self. Be patient with yourself and others this week as your emotional reserves may be slightly more depleted than usual.
The Moon is waning this week, so you may find that your own emotional energy is waning as well. As the week progresses, you may be less and less able to mentally and emotionally deal with the challenges that come your way. You may be easily triggered by things. This is to be expected. Play it cool and give yourself plenty of down time – especially later in the week.
Note how your dream state becomes more active this week. Keep a dream journal close to your bed and just as you first wake up, take care to remember what your mind was processing in the night. Important clues to your subconscious insights or concerns are being revealed at this time.
The Moon is waxing so our energy is waxing. As the week progresses, we find ourselves staying up later and later each night and our dream state becomes more active. This is a good time to tackle yoga sets that require more physical effort and core strength.
The week begins on an upbeat note. The outlook is optimistic. The future is bright. We are still in the darkest time of year, for those in the Northern Hemisphere, but the good news is, the days are getting longer again.
Last-minute holiday shoppers beware! Mercury goes retrograde on Monday of this week, suggesting that anything you buy with electrical or mechanical parts is going to be a lemon!
Why is everyone on edge? Why does it seem as if the slightest comment gets the hairs prickling on the back of your neck? It seems that we are running up a high emotional tab this week, and unless you have a healthy way of channeling this powerful energy, it can come spouting out in ways that are unhealthy and undesirable.
