The Sun, planet of ego and self-expression, enters Sagittarius-Mula on December 16th until 29th 2023, the nakshatra associated with bare essentials and getting into the heart of the matter.
Mula is symbolized by a Root, and is concerned with simplicity and an ascetic quality where you follow a cause or desire for its own sake rather than for business or status. You can explore your specialized subject and become an expert far beyond the ordinary, though may not get instant credit for your effort.
Mula is also said to be unfortunate for borrowing or investing, so be careful not to overreach or gamble in a new enterprise. This nakshatra’s Shakti, or unique power, ‘the power to ruin and destroy’, also suggests breaking down old structures before you move ahead with the new.
The expansive influence of the Sun’s friend Jupiter, however, gives you a generosity of spirit that opens the way for new energy to flood in. You lend and donate generously, or simply give your time to an educational or spiritual cause that is close to your heart.
This is a good time to plan ahead and set high standards, where your ideas are closer to your truest self than at moments where you doubt or limit yourself. Sun is joined by dynamic Mars on December 27th, when your competitive instinct lifts you to a higher level.
The Sun’s light illuminates wherever it lands, so prepare to receive a flash of insight in meditation at this point which cuts through all superficial business.
