Today Monday, September 24th at 10:49pm EST, there will be a full moon in Uttara Bhadrapada Nakshatra. Uttara Bhadrapada’s shakti (essential energy) is the Varshodyamana Shakti, the power to bring the rain. Its ruling deity is Ahirbudhnya, the serpent of the deep. Ahirbudhnya represents the ocean of conscious at the foundation of life. So the desire of Uttara Bhadrapada is to find a firm foundation in life. This is a nakshatra that helps us understand how to find an unchanging spiritual foundation amidst the ever changing and fleeting elements of life. Aligning yourself with this nakshatra’s energy promotes growth, inspiration, intuition, emotional release, the awareness that life is temporary, and heightened spiritual awareness.
