Shape-shift and transform yourself and your life. Practice self-restrain and self-control.

Every Celestial Mansion has its own energy. We can use this energy to our advantage and / or to warn us against taking certain actions. The celestial mansion of the Water-snake falls under the zodiac sign of Cancer. The vibratory energy is that of the visionary who sees beyond the obvious and sees potential in hidden things. The mystic or psychic. When the moon or other planets visit this mansion it is a good time for self-defense, rash action, exchanging money and taking things to new heights. Psychic and artistic abilities are enhanced. Good for working with animals. This mansion is good for removing obstacles and living a more carefree life.

The warnings are against succumbing to temptation and overindulgence. Mistrust and suspicion could be at the order of the day. When the moon is visiting this galaxy it could cause cruel and destructive behavior.

Enhanced Energy: Remove obstacles to live a carefree life; self-defense and psychic protection.
Symbol: Coiled Serpent - embrace, entwine, squeeze things out, entrapment.
Bright side of the Snake Moon: Healing, medicine, perfume, good for journeys by water or air.

Those under the Snake Moon's influence: Have natural psychic and healing ability. They have intense magnetic eyes. They are intense, hypnotic, penetrating, wise, profound and secretive. They are very ambitious and full of conviction. Water Snakes are unable to take criticism or humiliation. On the negative side they can be crafty, devious, controlling and vengeful.  You feel the need to nurture and take care of everyone.

Challenge: to control your emotions. Your emotions and instincts may be in conflict about which direction to take. Focus on your goal with a firm will to move forward. You can please some of the people some of the time; but you cannot please all of the people all of the time. The only person who you can control is yourself. Learn to relax, trust and let go. Release any emotional blockages. Forgive and be free. Find peace and move forward. The serpent is symbolic of wisdom and healing. Love is its pathway. It takes us out of the illusion of matter and into the reality of spirit. It is about the ascension of the soul. It awakens the spirit to a higher energy vibration. We need to raise our energy to a higher vibration to attract positive situations into our lives.

Ashlesha is the mansion of hidden secrets, deep places, wisdom, self-reflection and change. Reflect on the change in behavior needed to be true to yourself. The Sun is in Delphinus that has the drum or flute as its symbol. Allow yourself to be an instrument through which the divine plays.
