The Full Moon of Wednesday 17 July is immediately preceded by an eclipse which ends minutes before the Moon is 100% full; this conjunction we call a Super Full Moon. The eclipse maximum (in the Southern Hemisphere) is at 07:30:00 am; the full Moon is at 07:38:00 am. The Moon sets at 7:33:00 am, somewhat linking this to the experience of the recent solar eclipse in South America, when the Sun set immediately after eclipse totality. Compounding this situation is a preponderance of retrograde, sandhi and debilitated planets. As this is a time when people can be hurt by our thoughts, words and actions, it behooves us to be speaking softly and sweetly to one and all.

The Creative Source of the All speaks through many instruments – past, present and future – yes, instruments from the future speak to us. (This is not new. Think of the Wingmakers material.) The Source of the All shares with us that Full Moons are times of plentiful energy placed at our disposal to use for the welfare of our world, in Hinduism – Loka sevanam – service to the world. So we look to the energies of our June Full Moon and what the needs of our home – Mother Earth – are at this time.

The Vedic New Year starts with the New Moon in Pisces, when the Sun is in Pisces. The nature of the year changes, the planet ruling the year will also change. Climate change is upon us – driving many unpleasant consequences of the excesses of the Age of Iron (Kali Yuga).

We are close to the time of the Moon’s nodes changing signs – which many call peyarchi. This change will will principally have effect in mundane conditions and events, as the two nodes, Rahu and Ketu, are said to impact the affairs of nations.
