Mula | The Roots
Moon in Mula + Krishna Dwitiya (2nd lunar day after full moon)
Finally, the last third of the Zodiac, the last spiral begins.
And it begins with the dawn of spirituality.
We started in Ashwini where it was the initiation of a new life. Then the second spiral inward started with Magha where we learned we have to get along with others and our ancestors are part of this as well. All of us need to bring the past to the forefront to make progress to the next realm.
And once we cross that threshold of water to fire once again, we find ourselves understanding that this is not all there is. This particular life is just a part of the herstory/history of who we are ultimately. It is the dawning of spirituality and the preparations are being made for what comes next.
Mula is the 19th of the 27 Nakshatras, and begins at the beginning of Sagittarius. As far as our galaxy is concerned, the black hole also falls in the middle of Mula, which can tell you something about the energy found here.
Where in Ashwini, we are learning ambition of life and progressing forward, in Magha, we are looking backwards and integrating in those who got us here, with Mula, we are learning to let go of the dead weight that holds us back.
This takes a certain type of quality to be able to walk away with no question asked. And that is what Ketu brings to the party. Ketu, the ruler of these three nakshatras, is headless - which means the energy is about using heart and instincts, and there is absolutely no analyzing or logical calculation about the way Ketu will go about it’s business.
Here in Mula, it is about one thing and one thing only. Getting to the source of truth. What is the most true thing about this situation? What is the cause?
Mula will destroy anything that stands in the way of that truth and is known as the most destructive nakshatra of the Zodiac.
As ominous and Kali-supported as that sounds, Mula is always searching for higher truth, not blame or shame although in a lower expression that might be a by-product.
To be on a spiritual quest takes balls. It isn’t for the faint of heart. Are you willing to walk away from all that you’ve loved and appreciated if it isn’t in support of what your higher self is trying to lead you to? If not, you probably don’t have Mula as part of your blueprint.
Those who love a Mula person know this to be true. That at any point life could take a fantastical shift the opposite direction if they are not displaying the most truthful expression in their relationship that is supportive of the bigger picture. Research Kali for more information on how this can look.
I don’t mean to scare anyone here, that is the energy of Mula. It brings the power to transform from the roots. A Mula person will destroy everything but only in search of the highest truth. Their thirst for this knowledge cannot be quenched until they know for themselves.
Remember, this is an endless cycle of birth, growth, transformation, death, incubation, rebirth. This cycle is continuing to play out and at Mula, we are starting to see the cycle for what it is. Nothing is really lost anyway, so Mula has no qualms about destruction.
For all of us, when the Moon transits Mula, as it is doing today, first, we feel renewed because the moon is no longer debilitated in Scorpio as it was for the last 2-1/2 days… so that alone is energizing and empowering. And we might find that we are ready to get rid of some dead weight - is it clearing the schedule? For me, today, it literally is working in the dirt in my back yard, getting rid of things no longer needed, preparing the soil for my backyard peace garden.
(I have two planets with Mula, Venus and Sun, in my 10th house…if you have been around me long enough, through some decades, you understand my work trajectory by reading this post.)
