Pāṇigata – ready 

«O Dweller in the body and Bestower of happiness, make benign that arrow which Thou holdest in Thy hand ready to shoot, O Protector of the body! Do not injure man or the world!» (Svetasvatara Upanishad, 3.6). 

They say next year will be your Aquarius year. If it is so, welcome the changes because obviously they are necessary for your evolution.  The conjunction of the Moon right at the equinox marks a rebirth in your life that opens the doors of a higher level in various spheres of your life. Remember, however, that a more important role involves more important and greater responsibilities. That arrow is benign and ready to shoot, but don’t hurt anyone! Are you ready?

PS. In the quoted verse the term pānigata is not used, but the sense  of the verse is perfect just as pānigata, which means “ready” in the sense of “present!”, is.
