New Moon in Swati

There will be a new moon in Swati nakshatra on Thursday, November 4th at 2:15 pm. Swati is ruled by Vayu the god of the wind. Its shakti is the power to scatter like the wind. Its desire is to roam freely throughout the universe, again, like the wind. Get the picture? This is a good day to disperse or release things, like scattering the ashes of a deceased relative or taking all your old clothes to the Salvation Army. New moons mark the beginning of a new lunar month, so the energy of Swati will color the period up until the next new moon. During that month, activities like travel are supported. Swati's symbol is a young sprout swaying in the wind, so it also suggests new beginnings that are tenuous at first but gain strength over time.
On the other hand, you might not want to get involved in too many projects during the next month, otherwise you might feel scattered. To counteract that tendency, I would suggest yoga, long walks, and more grounding activities. In the meantime, may you roam happily and freely throughout your universe during the next month. May you keep your two feet on the ground and feel confident about whatever you begin. And, may you be blessed by Vayu, the god of the wind! Om Vayave Namah!
