Full Moon – October 2019

Full MoonOctober’s Full Moon occurs on 14 October, with Ashwini Purnima taking place on 13-14 October. This month’s Full Moon in Pisces – a water sign – calls to explore the depths of water, feeling, emotion with movement towards self-understanding – of our true nature – the Self of all that is. On this occasion of Full Moon we also observe Valmiki Jayanti (birth of Valmiki) and Mirabai Jayanti (birth of Mirabai).

Notes on the September Equinox, 2019

Image of equinoxThere are two equinoxes every year – in September and March – when the sun shines directly on the equator and the length of day and night is nearly equal. Seasons are opposite on either side of the Equator, so the equinox in September is also known as the autumnal (fall) equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, and is considered the first day of Fall. In the Southern Hemisphere, it is known as the Vernal (spring) equinox and marks the first day of spring.

Full Moon August 2019

Full MoonThe Full Moon of 15 August occurs outside the prevailing Kaala Sarp Yoga (serpent of time) bringing a sense of freedom and vitality that has been absent for some days since the chains of Kaal Sarpa began. This is a time of a dual sense of energy yet chains of responsibility are somewhat dragging on us within. It is the time of light emerging from the Central Star of our galaxy, that star known as Sagittarius A.

Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon July 2019

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.

Full Moon – June 2019

Full MoonThe 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.

Vedic New Year – April 2019

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). Where ISIS has been defeated and eradicated, extremism and Islamophobia still fill pockets of social media, and this also will change.
