Today we are left with an emotional heaviness after yesterdays excited mental excursions. The Moon transits one of the most challenging lunar mansions, Ardra and opposite a stationary Saturn and Pluto, while Mars makes its conjunction with Pluto more exact.
Ardra is symbolized by a teardrop and its ruling deity is Rudra, a fierce form of Lord Shiva and an aspect of our being that wants to remove ignorance. These conjunctions have a powerful effect on our mental and emotional health, and although it does not have to be seen as purely negative, it does show a need to face facts, deal with some challenging situations and overcome them.
By the time the Moon enters the next sign, Punarvasu this evening (UT), we have more clarity, just as when we have a good cry, we return to a sense of peace and calm once again.
