Crescent Moon Phase: growth, expansion, struggle defied

Moon in Gemini/Cancer

Ruling Mahavidya: Chinnamasta and Kali

Negative Imprint: tight and taxed

Positive Imprint: loose and lax

Skill: "Be" without having to "do" or "accomplish"

Saturday's energy asks us to loosen up.  Rigid adherence to old ways, old ideas, and old perceptions of ourselves blocks forward momentum.  If we are locked in place and locked in mind, we will not see opportunities that will open up new possibilities.  So we want to go beyond conventional thinking and embrace the blazing Aries energy of innovation.

Sunday's energy has one mission only for us: rest.  When the Sun reaches the 18th degree of Aries, it is a signal to rest.  It's the universe's way of giving us a respite.  Aries energy drives hard with full speed; it tends to overtax the body and mind.  Abide the directive and take good care of yourself Sunday.  If a lot of your energy has been going out in the form of giving to others or if you have been hard on yourself, it is essential that you take time to relax.  Open up to receiving this re-charge/re-vitalization.  Be still. Quiet your mind.  It's very important to give our psyches a break, so don't dismiss the mission.  Part of mastering and re-imprinting energy is following the flow of action and rest.

Immerse yourself in the light currents of the cosmos and trust in the unfolding mysteries of life.  Poe's words help:

"All that we see and seem, is but a dream within a dream."
