Now, bring into this extremely sensitive and vulnerable lunar mansion Mars, the significator of extraverted energy, penetration, taking action, open fight and… exposing our wounds. And you will get an idea, how intense it can become.
LESSONS FROM MARS IN ASHLESHA
DON’T BE AFRAID TO BE VULNERABLE
The challenge of Mars in Ashlesha nakshatra is that it may force us to face our own difficult emotions and vulnerabilities, as well as expose our wounds, in circumstances, which we may not feel ready for. Mars is teaching us here a powerful lesson of embracing our own vulnerability and he encourages us not to be afraid of it and not to try to hide it constantly. Because when you truly honour and acknowledge your own vulnerability, even in front of others, that can become the source of your inner power.
CAN YOU OPEN UP A LITTLE MORE?
The entire time period, when Mars will be dwelling in Ashlesha nakshatra he will be testing your own limitations and boundaries through various life situations and silently asking: can you open your heart a little bit more? Can you widen your circle of compassion a little bit more? Can you try to let go of this fear that is paralysing you, whenever you try to open about something really difficult for you? It is a powerful time for going beyond the limitations of our comfort zone and gently stretching our boundaries to embrace life a little bit more.
PRACTICE PATIENCE AND TOLERANCE
Don’t forget that with Mars in Ashlesha, everybody feels this vulnerability, helplessness and frustration now in some sphere of life. You are not the only one experiencing that. Try to find within yourself more patience, tolerance and compassion towards others – and, first of all, towards yourself. Don’t expect too much. Because by becoming more patient towards others, even when you are suffering at the moment, you will also develop a powerful emotional strength, which will actually help you to go through this time period more smoothly.
WITHDRAW WHENEVER YOU CAN
As intense and unpredictable as this time period may be, don’t forget to find at least a little bit of time everyday to just be with yourself in silence. Meditate. Reflect. Self-analyse. Withdraw from any conflicts or disturbing activities, whenever possible. In this time of the year, when Mars is in Ashlesha nakshatra, focus more on inner work versus material progress. It is time for your own spiritual growth and healing all the wounds. Don’t rush it, don’t resist it. Just embrace it.
