Hasta | The Hand
Moon in Hasta + Shukla Ekadashi (11th lunar day after new moon)
Today the Moon transits Hasta, fully in Taurus.
Hasta is the thirteenth nakshatra of the Zodiac and is represented by the symbol of a hand. This is referring to shakti bestowed to Hasta people: The power to manifest the objects of their desires into the palm of their hands.
Where Rohini is about growing something, and the symbol is an ox cart, Hasta is about filling up the cart through right intention.
Hasta is also about working with the hands and powering through.
Hasta is ruled by the Moon and, like Rohini wears rose-colored glasses at times, Hasta tends to doubt their abilities to manifest and thus seemingly fail to manifest their heart’s desire.
Hasta people also tend to be artists and handcrafters but here they are seem to be sculptors, potters, makers of stained glass, quilters and makers of other more structurally oriented types of art. They also tend to be healers that use their hands such as massage therapists or energy healers.
When Moon transits Hasta, like it is doing today, you might find yourself out in the garden today, creating intentions and planting.
A song for Hasta:
Would love to hear if this resonated for you, and how.
PS…here is a link to the Rohini post.
PPS…here in a few more days it will be fun to see how this third round of nakshatras brings things together for you. I’m enjoying hearing your comments and ahas through this journey through the nakshatras. It inspires me, thank you.
