The New Moon on August 27 @ 4:17 am (EST) will be in Magha Nakshatra Zodiac Sign of Leo. Ruling energies are The Sun, Lord Ganesha, Ketu, the shadowy planet of past lives, and the Pitri's, The Lineage of Ancestors.
Have you noticed the magnificent sunrises lately? The Sun in all its glory, casting sunflower yellows, blazing reds, and mexican oranges across the skies. And now his beloved, the Moon, joins him for this dark New Moon casting light grays of warmth.
For this New Moon, the Sun and Moon are seated on the royal throne of Magha," The Star of Power." That power is Love. What else would one expect from the heart of a lion?
The Pitri's (lineage of ancestors), Ketu, and Lord Ganesha rule this Moon Mansion. Family, learning from the past, and the removal of obstacles will be at the forefront this month.
Those blazing reds across the skies are attributed to the fiery red planet Mars which has been squared (tension) the Sun. Most think that tension is a bad thing, and it is, in excess. But tension is a creative force and sometimes the only way to get someone to move out of their comfort zone. The Moon brings emotional intuition and intelligence to support the Sun and Mars on their quest to use their power for love, for all.
Saturn is in opposition to Venus, which adds a bit of restriction and limitations to the usual desires. It's an energy that asks you to search for deeper meaning in your desires. What would the conversation be if you can imagine sitting on a front porch with your grandmother, grandfather, or someone you deeply respect? What pearls of wisdom would they share? Listen intently and use their wisdom for the near future when Venus enters the gandanta zone (karmic knot) from August 28th-30th.
The power of love + creative tension + emotional intelligence & intuition + wisdom=the opportunities are endless.
How will you use this creative force this month? What will you heal? What will you share? What will you begin?
Key Themes for this Full Moon:
The Power of Love instead of the love of power.
Honor your ancestors
Use tension as an opportunity to get moving
Remove or release obstacles holding you back
Call or visit your family, especially your grandparents
