Marker Star: Shaula - Scorpio's Sting -  26° Sagittarius - 9°20' Capricorn

Every Day has its own energy. We can use this energy to our advantage and / or to warn us against taking certain actions. Today you may find that something you thought was sorted out needs re-examining. You need to get to the root cause of things. Replace out-dated ideas with more workable ones. The warning today is against arguments, injuries, operations, violence and accidents.

I aim to live magically, and invite you to join me on my journey as I explore and explain these energies so that we can move with the rhythm of nature for our ultimate benefit and gain. In my quest I track the daily movement and energy of the moon and the planets that influence earth. I put pictures of the moon's path and what it symbolizes for all to follow and enjoy.

Shaula born 16 to 28 December

Shaula is ruled by Nirriti, the Goddess of destruction. It is symbolised by a bunch of roots tied together. Shaula signifies roots - everything of basic nature, its motion is finite and limited. Shaula connotes the ideas of foundation, commencement, from the very bottom, the chief or principal city or the capital. Shaula does not indicate fortune or luck. But people born under its influence will be financially successful and lead a materially comfortable life.The ruler of this lunar mansion is Ketu, the South Node of the Moon. The Shaula individual may possess a deep philosophical nature and an inquisitive mind that enjoys exploring the roots of any subject.  People born under Shaula gain the wisdom and knowledge through their hard work. They can cause destruction to their families.They are peace- loving personalities, but will not hesitate to fight for what rightfully belongs to them. Shaula born people have multiple skills and hence, change of professions is a regular feature for these people and they spend their money recklessly.These people do not enjoy good equation with their parents. They are ambitious, learned, wavering, writers, proud, talkative, travelers and very helpful.  Shaula is located in the tail of the Scorpion . Shaula gives good judgment, interest in spiritual nature, brings people into the public eye. This is the center of the Galaxy or the Galactic Center. Mythology Nirriti means "calamity", and is the goddess of destruction who lives in the underworld. Nirriti has the power to ruin, destroy and break things apart.  She is depicted as Kali the fierce goddess who wears a necklace of skulls and human heads dangle from her belt. Her wild dance destroys illusions; she helps us see reality, the disgusting and beautiful. Called the "Root Star" they have a passionate nature that wants to get to the bottom of things. They are good at investigation, and research. They feel bound and trapped by the circumstances of their life, and can get caught up in blaming others or their environment. There can be extreme reversals in their lives with great losses. Material fortunes seem to be stripped away, the lesson of non-attachment leads to spiritual realization. The deep sense of loss forces them to look deeper and seek a higher power, transforming their experiences into enlightenment. Excesses lead to compulsive behavior. There may be an interest in healing with herbs or alternative medicine. People under Shaula have a passionate desire to get to the truth and they are therefore good at investigation and research. They are direct, ardent and truthful. They are shrewd and ambitious, but they can feel trapped and bound by circumstances and so feel resentment and a sense of betrayal. They can also suffer extreme reversals of fortune that may involve pain and cruelty.

"The Scorpion presides over arms". "By virtue of his tail armed with its powerful sting, wherewith, when conducting the Sun's chariot through his sign, he cleaves the soil and sows seed in the furrow, the Scorpion creates natures ardent for war and active service, and a spirit which rejoices in plenteous bloodshed and in carnage more than in plunder. Why, these men spend even peace under arms; they fill the glades and scour the woods; they wage fierce warfare now against man, now against beast, and now they sell their persons to provide the spectacle of death and to perish in the arena, when, warfare in abeyance, they each find themselves foes to attack. There are those, too, who enjoy mock-fights and jousts in arms (such is their love of fighting) and devote their leisure to the study of war and every pursuit which arises from the art of war." [Manilius, Astronomica, 1st century AD, p.239-240].
