Crescent Moon Phase – Moon in Virgo
Ruling Mahavidya: Dhumavati
Well this is certainly getting interesting. When the Mahavidyas, the Wisdom Goddesses, work, they look like whirling dervishes. Each operates at her own speed (frequency) so some appear to spin and whip, some wave and undulate, and some pound at regular, sustained beats.
You can think of this musically (it is music): those Mahavidyas who spin and whip are like the lead guitarists, the ones who wave and undulate are the bass players, and the sustained rhythm are drummers and rhythm guitarists. Of course, the level of musicianship and creativity of the Mahavidyas is on par with nothing less than a band like Led Zeppelin.
For some reason, I am directed to highlight Led Zeppelin… For those who aren’t fans, please indulge me (and whoever else is stirred by the reference).
What we have right now is really interesting in that even last month’s ruling Mahavidya, Bagalamukhi, is still on stage destroying our illusions. So we have four Mahavidyas at play, dancing streams of energy into the collective to produce many, many things – all of which are to help us grow into knowledge and life (the Sabian symbol that represents the energy of the current month: the seed grows into knowledge and life).
So today one of the four Mahavidyas on stage will “target” you for instruction or you may have a combination of them teaching you. You can, of course, reach out to any or all of them yourself. This is the breakdown:
Bagalamukhi breaks down our illusions and false beliefs (particularly about ourselves). Dhumavati ends personal suffering if we release it to her. Bhairavi strengthens hearts and courage. Shodashi inspires our highest desire.
The Mahavidyas will take it from here.
