Purva Bhadra | The Monk (The Saint)
Moon in Purva Bhadra + Krishna Dashami (10th lunar day after full moon)
We’ve arrived at the last part of the Zodiac, the sign of Pisces, the place of highest moksha, surrender, freedom and you’ll sense this as you explore the Pisces dominant nakshatras.
Purva Bhadra begins in Aquarius and ends in Pisces, crossing that chasm of collective healing to surrender of it all.
It is considered the ascetic, the saint or monk, the one who wears a mask while on the healing journey…and then removes it as they move into Pisces moksha.
It is the rising from ashes to awaken.
It is the first steps trying to emerge as the true self.
Like Punarvasu and Vishakha is the third nakshatra ruled by Jupiter, the spiritual teacher of the Zodiac and our natal chart, our blueprint. Where in Punarvasu, we were learning that we can recover and regenerate and gathering the confidence from understanding that we really can never lose, in Vishakha, we were gathering that confidence and inner knowing for a new trajectory, something of higher value and purpose.
In Purva Bhadra, with the assuredness we can never lose and the willingness to take the new path, we walk confidently, without any bindings, into ethereal Pisces. Jupiter is the only planet associated with auspicious ether element and here in Pisces where Jupiter is free to be Jupiter fully, especially ruling Purva Bhadra and the prior lessons gained, we see what that means.
It means anything goes, to some degree. No longer bound by the extreme physics of earth, ether is a lot more malleable and can transmute and transform and look way different than prior incarnations.
We start to see a peek of irreverence and an “it’s all spiritual” attitude…all the while, honoring and revering spiritual practice.
Purva Bhadra brings the power to breath spiritual fire through internal purification.
When Moon transits Purva Bhadra you might find yourself looking to be free of ties that bind, swimming in a new direction, removing a mask you’ve worn long enough. Or you might be sitting, looking at trees, in a deeply transformative practice.
All Pisces yearn for or are pointed toward Freedom (moksha), starting with the Purva Bhadra person…
Only two days left of this journey through the 27 nakshatras.
