Punarvasu | The New Dawn
Moon in Punarvasu + Shukla Chaturthi (4th lunar day after new moon)
And after the storm, dawns a new day.
The slate is wiped clean by the tears of renewal.
We are renewed.
The light returns.
That is Punarvasu in a nutshell.
With it brings the shakti of life to regenerate and recover itself. What was lost is found again. Amazing Grace.
With the understanding that we can never really lose, that we are light and energy and we only transform into another version of wholeness, we can begin to loosen that tight grip of control and fear that there is something to be gained.
We start, ever so gently, loosening that grip to our mother’s hand. Or whatever it is we’ve been clinging to realizing we have to let go of the magical arrow for it to return to the quiver.
Punarvasu is the seventh nakshatra of the Zodiac and is represented by a quiver full of arrows. The arrows magically return so the quiver is always full and ready to go. There is never a sense of emptiness or lack.
Punarvasu is ruled by Jupiter, and Jupiter is known as the spiritual teacher (or guru) of our natal chart. On one hand, Jupiter is hope and optimism and you’ll see that here with Punarvasu but Jupiter is also deep wisdom and inner knowing and that is where you see blind faith that all is well.
When Moon transits Punarvasu, like it is doing today, you might notice a lightness of being as you release your grip on outcomes and … trust.
Punarvasu is my birth star (where Moon is) and so this represents my innermost knowing more than any other star (Ascendant is how we appear in our external duties and Moon is our innermost truth). Amazing Grace seems like it is the logical pick here but I have chosen that for another nakshatra even though it bodes well here. My best pick that resonates for Punarvasu for me is This Little Light of Mine by Sam Cooke…
What was I thinking when I said 27 days in a row…we are only on day 7! How is it going for you? I’ve had a few unsubscribes. People don’t like getting daily emails. That’s how it goes in these post pandemic days of extra emails. I trust what is useful is worth reading. However, I do not want to be pest. Please feel free to unsubscribe if these are not useful for you. I never take it personally.
