Anxiety into Productivity, Your Astrocast 10/5-10/11

Blessings Lovelies! 

We are now in the waning cycle of the Moon, where we are prompted to turn inward and focus more on releasing, rather than creating. This is overly emphasized as we move towards a Last Quarter Moon in Cancer hitting on Friday. With this internally focused energy, and our Moon in Gemini before the Last Quarter Moon in Cancer, we could feel a lot of anxiety manifesting within us. We may be prone to overthinking or obsessing about something in the days ahead. Personally, these Mars transits over the last couple weeks have added a heightened sense of anxiety in my own life, but one of the deep poignant insights I had years ago was the phrase, “ anxiety is energy that has nowhere to go.” Like a lot of my insights, this was given to me by my guides during a meditation where I was trying to calm my nerves. I was then led to understand that we can channel this anxiety into projects or productivity. Going for a walk in nature is a great way to ground the mind when having anxiety and something that has been straight up medicine for me when I have been needing to sort things out in my mind. 

One of the things that grinds my gears the most about the western yoga movement is the lack of yoga philosophy made known to people when doing yoga as a physical practice. One of the things I have learned when studying various yoga philosophies is that you are to do physical yoga to prepare the mind for meditation. Essentially you are not to meditate until you have done a specific breath work and/or physical practice to prepare your mind to receive guidance from the cosmos. In western culture today, we often fragment everything, which I believe is why we often feel fragmented as people. We learn systems separately and have a very secular and separate perception of ourselves and reality. But this is not the way we are supposed to be operating as complex beings when it comes to many metaphysical perceptions of spirituality and or existance and spiritual beings living in a material reality. From what I understand, in many Yoga practices you are to have not just the physical practice of the movements, but also the breathing exercises, the kriyas, the mantras, the mudras, and the meditations. It is such a complex system that we can barely grasp in western culture the complexities of how it is to be used in everyday life. One of the things I learned when studying Kundalini Yoga a couple years ago was that we should not meditate until we have done these specific exercises and breaths with our body, to help ground our physical vessel for receiving divine insights and energy. I am sure many of you have sat and tried to meditate and had your mind just not in a state where it couldn't stop thinking about something. This is because the mind has not been properly prepared to receive. 

I should note it wasn’t my intention to go on a tangent about yoga and meditation, but with so much anxious energy within the collective frequency,  I feel it is worth noting that it is good to reframe anxiety as an excess of energy that needs to be expressed and released. This energy needs to go somewhere, otherwise it manifests as an excess within our bodies and minds often resulting in anxiety. There are so many health benefits to being in nature, exercising, and focusing on the material realm in a healthy way. This is imperative to our mental and emotional well being. One of the easiest ways to release excess energy is through physical activity. Going for a walk, working out, tantric exercises, Pranayama and Kundalini yoga are all great ways to channel anxiety through and out of the body. 

This week we benefit from find healthy ways to release anxiety or emotional energy. Find something that grounds you and brings you a sense of stability when it comes to your routine! Venus in Virgo is helping us to work on this aspect of our lives right now. Lean into organization and constructing healthy routines for yourself around your physical world. Your future self will be so grateful you did!

All times are Pacific time

Monday 10/5

Moon in Taurus

Moon trine Pluto in Capricorn 5:50 am

Moon void of course trine Saturn in Capricorn 11:41 am

Moon enters Gemini 9:03 pm

No major transits, but our Moon is void of course in Taurus most of the day, which gives us a frequency that requires slow movement, and no firm expectations when it comes to our immediate plans. This is a good day for working on tasks that you have before you, but not for making concrete or serious decisions. We do well nourishing our bodies with healthy food, and being productive in ways that give us a sense of accomplishment. We can think of the 4 of pentacles energy in the Tarot as ruling the frequency of the day.

With the Moon entering Gemini in the evening hours, we could perhaps have some late night anxiety. It wouldn't be a bad idea to go for a walk, do some sort of physical exercise, or write about how you are feeling. Pranayama yoga in the evening is also advised if you need help getting your mind grounded before bed.

Tuesday 10/6

Moon in Gemini

Moon square Venus in Virgo 5:41 am

Moon sextile Chiron rx in Aries 10:51 am

Moon inconjunct Mercury in Scorpio 3:11 pm

Some tense aspects today give us a frequency that could cause us to feel a sense of urgency towards our to-do lists. We benefit from putting order to things in our lives when it comes to anything that has been causing us stress. We could feel irritable in the afternoon, so it may be wise to block out some space or alone time from others. On the flip side, something that has been bothering us for a while may need to get talked out.
