Nirriti, Goddess of chaos, the presiding deity of this lunar mansion, is often identified with Mother Kali, Dark Goddess of Time and Death, who brings all the necessary transformations and endings into our life, absorbs all our negativity, stills the agitation of the mind and teaches us how to find light even in deep darkness, as well as stillness amidst chaos. Sometimes being portrayed with a broom, Nirriti is the great purifier. She is this force within us, which stirs our consciousness and brings all the mind’s impurities on the surface, so we can become aware of them, transform them and heal them. She exposes all the lies and unroots all outdated beliefs. Her energy will be very powerful during the eclipse time, when Moon and Sun will meet on the border of Mula nakshatra’s most transformative and intense ashtamamsha pada (where Jupiter already dwells).
In D27 chart of strengths and weaknesses, Sun and Moon will meet during this eclipse in the amsha of Nagas, Divine serpents, who represent our deep emotions, sensitivity and vulnerability. We all may feel a bit vulnerable around this time period. Universe will make us more aware of our own weaknesses, so we can learn from them. It will make us face our darkness, so we can learn from it, too. But as difficult as this period may be from material and emotional perspective, this is one of the most potent times for spiritual progress – if only you are brave enough to face the truth about yourself and embrace it without judgement.
