Full Moon December 2020

The Vedic God RudraThe Full Moon of December 2020 brings in its wake attention from Rahu and Mercury, the transit of Pluto into Capricorn where it joins conjunct Saturn and Jupiter. The effect of Pluto on this conjunction is considered, along with aspects of the two Rahu nakshatras which the Moon occupies in the Birth Chart and the Navamsha. Annapurna Jayanti (birth of the Goddess of Food) occurs on Full Moon day, also. As this is the time of the release of higher energies to the earth at the solstice, we give one Meditation at Uluru.

A call has been sent out to followers of a discipline connected to Flower of Life to take up ’emergency meditations’ due conjunctions and aspects between certain planets. The planets are perceived as troublesome in nature, and thus, need to be ‘appeased’ and the Earth must be ‘protected’ by ’emergency meditation’ using the Flower of Life.

Sturgeon MoonFor those who live in the northern hemisphere, August’s full Moon was traditionally called the Sturgeon Moon because the giant sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain (North America) were most readily caught during this part of summer. Away from the fish and on to concerns of this day and age, the madding crowd with their empty fears and similar noises can give us much to worry about.
