Ghost Period: May 28, 2013 through June 25, 2013
Stationing: June 26, 2013 through July 20, 2013
Stationing Direct: July 21, 2013 through August 06, 2013
By Maharani Rutan©
Mercury turns retrograde again; sending plans communication to go slanting including the internet, and any forms of communications. This uncomfortable period that we may be feeling may last for three weeks or so, until July 20, 2013 when it intensifies and the congested energy will not complete leave until it is completely stationed direct on August 09, 2013.
Mercury has begun his journey backwards already. It began in Gemini and finish in Leo. The ghost period which is known as a gestation period began the 28th of May. If things have slowed down or the messages are not coming clear this is just the beginning. As we get closer to June 26, 2013, the areas of transportation, communication and anything to do with conveying a message will be mus-delivered, lost, or even seem confusing. Many people will not feel any kind of relief even when mercury begins to move forward in motion on July 20, 2013. The sign of relief will be evident August 6, 2013 when things are much clearer.
The energy of this retrograde can be compared to June of 2007.
With Mercury retrograde in Cancer, people with this sign prominent in their charts will be particularly prone to such introspection. There is little choice but to reevaluate our individual interpretations and opinions about whom we are and where we are going and who are the people in our lives and why we are here? There is, however, an opportunity to expand insight into our own self discovery.
When mercury is retrograding in the signs of Cancer it creates a mental and emotional confusion with inconvenient forgetfulness. People will love to admire flattery yet easily take offense when it is given. The big temptation will be to indulge to compensate for emotional insecurities. Please watch you’re self. Love affairs will be unpredictable and unreliable due to ego centric attitudes. All areas of communication are inflated, especially in any theatrical or leadership-oriented activity, or matters of state, or to do with children, romance and creativity in general
Gemini’s is ruled by mercury which means even if mercury is in retrograding in Cancer, not only will all a Mutable sign Pisces, Virgo, Sagittarius and Gemini’s be affected but all cardinal signs (Aries, Libra, Capricorn and Cancer) will also be affected. There is, however, an opportunity to enlarge awareness into our own self-image. When mercury is retrograding in the signs of Cancer it creates an emotional and sympathetic focus. Often causes people to reach into something loving, caring and compassionate with real recognition. But it may cause an urge to escape to a place they have never gone before.
This retrograde the effects of the retrograde will impact people differently the general tendencies for this retrograde will be unique. But trust me when I say it is about slowdowns.
For Aries it is situated in the 4th house which deals with family, estate, childhood and emotions. Whereas, Taurus it will be placed in the 3rd house areas of education, short trips and communications of all types. While Gemini’s 2nd house where money may slow down or financial matters may have glitches. At the same time for Cancers it will be positioned in their 1st house in areas of health and personality. Additionally, for Leo’s in the 12th house in areas of solitude and hidden secrets not getting quick answers as to what their direction in life is. And Virgos in the 11th house where they may struggle with friends and allies and projects things may slow down there as well.
Nonetheless, for Libra it will be located in their 10th house which represents the family, it could be there may be power struggles within the family or distancing or people from their past may just appear again. But Scorpios will be in the 9th house where deep though and the answers will not come easily it has to do with spirituality, distant travel and journey which is inner and outer. There will also be reservations for Sagittarius where mercury settles in their 8th house where their passion lays questioning who they are and other people’s money. But for Capricorn 7th house where there may be slow down on their relationship (interpersonal). Also Aquarius in their 6th house of sickness and health wondering if obligations are causing them to feel sick, or do they need to cut back.
Whereas, Pisces who are affected by almost everything is going to have their 5th house shaken where things their love and pleasures will be questions. Please note these are general tendencies. It is my recommendation that you speak to Leslie Hale and find out how intense these houses are for you.
All the information received during this period may be incomplete and caution must be taken not to assume things. This is also a time to reconsider our actions of the past and see to that we are held accountable for anything done in the past will be uncovered. Disposition to confusion, indecision, fickle minded, frustrated is the norm, however, being careful that actions and communication does not instigate offensiveness and criticism since everyone will be feeling the push and pull of this energy.
This period can also damage for business relations, legal issues especially matters of communications that is obstructed in some way, which could cause writers block. Therefore it is advisable to take several breaks to refresh thoughts.
Mercury is not just about individuality but also in areas of interpersonal or romantic relationships it is wise to be a little more cautionary. Since mercury’s energy is to revisit, rethink, reconsider people form our past may return just when we thought we forgave, forgotten even released them from our lives. However, if there is any second chance this is the second chance for a closure or an opening, but, any romance which begins during this time is based on confusion, miscommunication, and indirect assumption. This type of energy is a settling energy whatever begins now could end by next retrograde or end by the end of August 2013.
If you are in a relationship this could break up the relationship because of miscommunication; treat every relationship with kid gloves otherwise if it breaks up it won’t be restored again until October 2013 when another cycle comes around to re-visit old issues again.
Neptune is retrograding until November 2013, so even if things seem confusing during mercury retrograde a highlighted sensitivity may cause things to look as clearer than any other time. Neptune has been in Pisces for a long time, and Neptune also has to do with being highly sensitive to your psyche. This is a call that if careful attention is not given our intuition this could cause confusion. Neptune could cause many people to feel spaced out or feel as though they are disillusioned with every day task. Things could get so confusing that this is a happier time for crooks, swindlers and even those that promise you paradise and before you know you have nothing. This transit can be a bit eye opener when November comes around where we are able to see clearly our own vulnerabilities, and how confusion and uncertainties have caused us to make decision we would not have under normal circumstances. So be extra cautious. Try not to sign any contracts, be involved in or a part of any legal issues without consulting an attorney.
A planet is described as retrograde when it appears to be moving in reverse through the zodiac. This customary perception arises in the illusory planetary motion created by the orbital rotation of the earth, with relation to other planets in our solar system. Planets are never actually retrograde or stationary, they just seem that way, due to this visual misapprehension.
Retrograde periods, although often problematic people and, are not particularly uncommon. Each planet retrogrades, except the Sun and Moon. Mercury, much like the winged messenger of the gods, comes in on feather-light wings and commands us to express. Communication, understanding and consciousness are all within Mercury’s purview, as are reasoning and perceptive, our manner of thinking, and how we create and express our thought processes. A mercurial nature brings to mind impatience and motion. Rat-a-tat-tat — things happen fast here.
Mercury is about a quick wit, quick thinking, opportunities, thoughts, reasoning and the ability to justify things. Mercurial energy can be good or bad, but it will certainly be stimulating! This Planet also prompts us to move from one thing to the next and to get answers on both a somatic and psychosomatic level. Further, Mercury’s energy is both agile and observant. Mercury is about short trips: a visit to a neighbor or a friend across town, the workaday commute, and a weekend getaway. Siblings and transportation in general, are also within Mercury’s realm. Communication, writing, books, online communications and learning are all within Mercury’s territory.
This Planet appeals us to express ourselves often — and well. Because Mercury rules communication and transportation, these two areas are most influenced during a Mercury Retrograde. Discussions might be more problematic, as crossed signals and unclear meanings confuse normally forthright discussions. Still, with a little carefulness and contemplation, you’ll get your point across. Similarly, be prepared with a back-up plan when you’re traveling. If your flight gets canceled or your car won’t start, remain cool and make the best of it. Who knows — you might not have met that captivating new person in the airport lobby or bus stop if you had taken your flight or driven to work…
Remember, we can use this powerful energy in positive ways. Use this time to do activities that start with “re”: renovate, restoration, review, renegotiate, and research…
In general, Mercury rules thoughts and opinion, handling and circulating information and all means of communication, commerce and transportation. By extension, Mercury rules people who work in these areas, especially people who work with their minds or their wits: writers and orators, commentators and critics, gossips and spin doctors, tricksters and thieves.
Mercury retrograde gives rise to personal misinterpretations; inconsistent, interrupted, or delayed communications, negotiations and trade; glitches and breakdowns with phones, computers, cars, buses, and trains. And all of these problems usually arise because some critical piece of information, or component, has gone awry, or askew.
When Mercury is retrograde, everyone’s thinking is more introspective and we tend to think about issues and concern that relate to the sign involved. Artistic tendencies including crafts, music, art or design tend to be blocked by circumstances beyond one’s control. Legal matters will proceed slowly and unforeseen obstacles tend to emerge. Mercury retrograde tends to lack depth of perception and has no patience for detailed analysis. All areas of communication are affected. Methods and motivation for learning, communication and transportation are subject to difficulties under this aspect.
It brings travel holdups and missed appointments of all kinds. The good things to do when Mercury is Retrograde: meditate, contemplate, edit the book/poem/song/essay you’ve been writing, clean house, talk to your pet, listen to music, paint, catch up on sleep!
Since, mercury is a very slow moving planet and it effect almost all planetary signs .It is my suggestion that you purchase a yellow candle and carve your name through the wick. Anoint the candle with Inspiration oil or Eucalyptus oil and chant the psalm 70 every single night. This period will last for 3 weeks and it will be hard on all of us.
This will allow friendly communications as well as understandings in situations. You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until August 08, 2013. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is depended upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy I have chosen a mantra for you during this mercury retrograde:
“Om Budhaya Namaha”
(Om Bood-han-yah Nahm-ah-ha)
“Om and salutations to Buddha, presiding spirit of planet mercury”
This mantra is used to achieve mental clarity, to avoid and overcome misunderstandings and keep friendly communications flowing. Many people have asked the question how often they should have a reading done by a physic or a tarot reader. In my opinion an in depth reading should be done every moon cycle.
Please note that I am not an astrologer, these are general tendencies and may not reflect the intensity of what one reaction and action towards one specific thing. To best see how these energies will be amplified I would suggest you contact any of my astrological advisers (here) or contact my recommended astrologer Leslie Hale for the possible scenarios.
Vedic readings are very unique in all prospective, they are what is known as preventive methods through the energy that is in place. We can know what the future holds but the key to a spiritual and sustainability is the adaptation and being the willing participant of change and dual prospective. Vedic readings provide a prospective to change the direction by understanding and adjustments.
I wish you the best in the journey through retrograde, remember when things happen just laugh and say “I know what you are doing .. mercury” .

New Moon in Gemini
June 08, 2013
By Maharani Rutan©
The New Moon in Gemini on June 08, 2013 at 11:56 am EST, 8:56am PST will make many changes for some of you; for the most part, positive. This new moon settles itself in 18 degrees in Gemini depending upon the Orb.
The closer you were born to the date this date, the more intense the changes. Many of you may begin to feel this as early as 5 days before. This is a beautiful transit as Jupiter will also enter Gemini and will stay there until June 30, 2013. This means natural growth and expansion via communication and experiences.
The New Moon signals a time of development. There is a desire to take aggressive action because the old is no longer feasible. It could be as simple as taking a more scenic route to work or as drastic as moving from one place to another. But the new moon brings to us the energy for making impulsive moves and following your drives. The process of change will come from the heart – believe in your heart and trust that every risk is worth taking as it is the first day of one’s life.
The New Moon blesses early stages of new things and calls on chances. These chances create the vision of your own dreams and newness after the Lunar Eclipse brought endings so that this moon can help us with the path we call life.
The chart of the individual is the key influence of this new moon for months to come. It is about planting seeds, taking risk, going for the most impossible, being one and giving it 100% so you never have to regret. The New Moon is an asking time to start something, to formulate what our needs are according to the opportunities available (through Gemini this month).
However, Gemini’s will not be the only ones that will be affected by the mix of newness. All those that are mutable signs (Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo and Pisces) will also be touched. Also affected will be those that have ascendants or descendants in Gemini in their chart.
This is the time to Reap, Pray and be Thankful, and to work on abundance and affluence. Many will be highly independent in their personality. A drive to achieve and fulfill personal plans and ideals is the focus of the energy. Hence, there is a tendency to react rashly and expressively. The Gemini energy knows how to see both sides easily therefore feeling more adaptable, changeable and talkative will be the theme of this moon. It is a good time to write, take care of tasks that resemble mathematical puzzles, make speeches, or just let ideas fly through the clouds. Academic pursuits and mind games may become more necessary to rationalize emotions. An impulsive tongue may hastily express things that are only true for the moment.
A need to continually express your feelings and quickly arriving at a logical solution to an emotional problem may not be accepted. This is because feelings will be switching back and forth as Gemini’s do. At the same, seeing the various aspects of a situation, and bending or adjusting to others may be good. This could however, make people appear fickle or two-sided, but it is really the sign of an open mind. Nurturing others by staying in friendly communication will be a beneficial quality of this moon. You need to relate to your mother as a friend and keep in regular contact.
Not only will the moon light up communications, Jupiter will also enter Gemini 3 days later on the 11th and will reside there until June 27, 2013. Jupiter is a planet of expansion which arouses our conviction, understanding, growth and generosity, while also allowing joy and happiness. With Jupiter in Gemini we are ready to learn new things with an open-mindedness that allows good luck through curiosity and friendliness. The best time to remember when Jupiter was fantastic was during the summer months of 2000 through the summer months of 2001.
The Gemini moon arouses your inquisitiveness. Fascinating ideas appear constantly, like doors opening up to reveal other doors. Now is the time to make connections, perhaps via e-mail or telephone. Explore your garden, learn from it, but don’t plant. Enjoy this ride because retrograde in two weeks will make people look at their decisions to make sure they were correct for the situation.
The Moon in Gemini also brings a time of messages and flexibility. People may feel very conversational and interested. This is a time to pursue intellectual interests and to take care of communications both verbal and written. Like the twins that symbolize Gemini, people may be able to see both sides of a problem but they may also be fickle and restless, unable to make up their minds. Caution needs to be taken to avoid saying something in haste that will be regretted later.
It is my suggestion to bring out those aspiration papers again and cross off the ones you have already have changed and make new ones. I also suggest to purchase a Yellow candle; carve your name on it and anoint it with sandalwood or frankincense oil and chant the following chant: “”I ask to find the inner light of my creativity” I wish for the universe to help me achieve the recognition that I desire.” “I pray that I may find the strength to take chances with my creativity.” Along with the chant, recite Psalm 7 every night until the next new moons phase; this will be June 23, 2013. Also in the mix and headed our way is mercury retrograde in Cancer, so not only will mutable signs (Gemini, Pisces, Virgo and Sagittarius) be affected naturally but also Cancers and those that have cancer anywhere in their astrological chart. So be prepared. More information to come within the next week…..
The mantra for this new moon is:
Om Vishnu Namaha
(OM Vesh nu Na Ma Ha)
This Mantra opens the universal forces in your life and allows the righteous changes to occur.
Many people have asked the question how often they should have a reading done by a physic or a tarot reader. In my opinion an in depth reading should be done every moon cycle. Since, every moon cycle represents a change; it not only affects our external forces but our internal forces as well.
Of course, we all have burning questions every now and then and it may be necessary to have a reading done more often, but sometimes we have to let universe take its course.
When dealing with a tragic situation it is my suggestion that before you have a reading done you must clear away negativity and fear from your emotions so that a reader can give you the clearest reading possible. Remember that every psychic bases all their telephone readings on your energy. So remember to ask guidance from the higher power before having a reading so that you can be neutral with your energy. The clearest answers can be given when energy is at a neutral point.
Never get a reading with your energy is scattered because you may not receive the best reading possible. 98% of all psychics are empathic and clairvoyant so this energy is very important to them as well as you. Always remember that every reader has their boundaries as to how far in the future they want to read. This is their choice; however, reading beyond 6 months is a very hazy situation. Our free will plays an important role in our destiny and we are able to change anything. This is the main reason why many readers do not go beyond the 3 to 6 month mark.
Please understand that these are general tendencies and in no way reflect exactness in one particular sign. For the latest up to date trends in your chart during this lunar eclipse, I would suggest that you get in touch with my recommended astrologer Leslie Hale or other astrologers in my useful link page to see how this moon will transit with you astrologically.
Please note I am NOT an astrologer nor claim to be one however, as a Hindu Sanskrit reader I use these utilities to be a threshold for our readings. In the Hindu ideology, planets push the power of resistance and our free will takes the actions. Therefore anything done through humility and nature will play a great importance in life’s positive outcomes.
Stay calm, focused and call to the higher power to make your way through the tendencies of radicals.
Thank you once again

Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
Full Moon in Sagittarius
by Maharani Rutan©
Abstract by Leslie Hale©
At the evening hours of May 24, and the midnight hours for some on May 25, 2013, our first Penumbral Lunar Eclipse occurs at 3 to 4 degrees in Sagittarius at approximately 12:10 am EST and 9:10 pm PST depending on the orb. A few minutes later, the sky will be lit with a full moon in Sagittarius at 12:35am EST and 9:35pm PST.
The Penumbral lunar eclipse, though it may bring intensity to human factors of emotions and actions, is not very active in the sky. The Penumbral eclipse happens when the earth moves between the sun and the moon and does not form a perfect eclipse lining like a full eclipse would. Unlike the moon and sun covering during the normal eclipse, this time the earth obscures a part of the sun from the visibility of the moon. Due to the nature of this eclipse there will not be a change in the brightness or dimness of the moon. The eclipse may last up to ½ hour and, if all seen, it would be seen from South Americas and North America but it will only touch 1.6% diameter. As much as the view of the eclipse is beautiful when there is a total eclipse, unfortunately and fortunately there are none this year.
“The final eclipse during May occurs on the 24th-25, and it is a full moon (lunar) eclipse at 4 degrees of Sagittarius, reaching a lunar peak in the US at 12 25 a.m EST. The NASA website calls this eclipse the ‘hyrid solar eclipse of 1789.’”-Leslie Hale
This year has already been very intense with back to back eclipses. Fortunately, there are only two more this year and they will be in the fall; in Aries and Scorpio. So relax for a bit and enjoy the change.
The lunar eclipse will fall at 03 to 04 degrees in Sagittarius depending upon the orb. This eclipse is will be concentrated around early Sagittarius, including descendant, ascendant and those that have mutable sign in their chart (Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini’s and Virgos). The prominence of this eclipse will be more on being cooperative, transcendent, lenient, and taking risk; at the same time there will be a dislike for confinement, dullness, hesitation and criticism.
“Sagittarius is the natural ruler of the 9th house of ideas and beliefs and this eclipse will be the last on the Sagittarius /Gemini axis. The 3rd/9th house axis relates to world view, medicine, publishing, religion, education, ideas, communication and the way we think and view the world. The ninth house also rules foreign people and places along with the legal world and the news media. (Communications)”-Leslie Hale
This eclipse will also re-stimulate, to some degree, the issues that were raised by the November 25, 2011 eclipse when it was in 2 degrees in Sagittarius (Read more about it here). Perhaps looking at those days will trigger a memory which will assist understanding – what happened during the months to follow and can now assess in what is about to take place for the next 6 months. I have had people tell me sometimes it’s the complete opposite and sometimes it’s exactly the same. But the eclipse energy is always about endings.
The effects of this eclipse can be felt as early as 5 days before (May 20, 2013). The uneasiness of the energy of the eclipse will be felt by everyone; however, the strength of the eclipse depends upon the house that the eclipse falls in your astrological chart. Every eclipse has a significant bearing on revolution in our lives for at least 6 months; therefore, early born Sagittarius may feel this effect more so than ever.
“This eclipse comes just after the exact square of Uranus and Pluto and will be the cornerstone of change in the world during this time. Change, revolutions and upsetting the status quo have been the theme of the time in which we currently live and we will see more of it this month”. – Leslie Hale
This eclipse is particularly relationship oriented – our relationship with others can be separated, tested, or suddenly repaired as the surprise calls one to action. We may deeply consider our feelings and needs within the context of the house, sign and planetary aspects affected. To fully appreciate the potential in the lunar eclipse, we must explore both houses and signs that are brought into play. Where the Moon is we can confront our fears, old behaviors and doubts, and where the Sun is we may find the means to release from whatever oppression we experience in life through our creative efforts. In any event, there are opportunities for deeper understanding, and finding a balance in our lives.
To able to feel or rather relate to the intensity of this eclipse is to recall the eclipse that occurred on December 21, 2010, which paved the pathway to the eclipse which are about to start the motion of magnified transformation for many. Read more about the December 21, 2010 eclipse here. This eclipse is the half-way point to the final destination for subliminal transformation and the eclipse is the nudge to make it happen.
“As the eclipse falls on the heels of the Uranus-Pluto square situations and information will be revealed and as the eclipse squares Neptune information may be cloudy. As it falls so close to the U-P square we are on the precipice of great change in the world and our personal lives now” –Leslie Hale
For every astrological sign this eclipse will be different and I would recommend that you make an appointment with my recommended astrologer Leslie Hale to see how personal this eclipse will be.
While this eclipse will affect Aries in their 9th house which focuses on learning and education, for Taurus it could affect your 8th house which a symbol of transformation and other people’s money. Gemini’s could have symphony in the 7th house of marriages and their relationships with others. While Cancers will be focusing on their health, Leos their homes and beautifying it or moving it. Virgos 4th house will be triggered with a great analysis of their roots and family trying to figure out where they are coming from and where they are going. Into the mix comes Libra’s placement with this eclipse in their 3rd house, attentions on short trips perhaps going back to school and recreating their communication skills.
Scorpios will not be out of this mix with a placement in their 2nd house whose motivations would be around how they will earn their money and how they will manage it. Which leaves us with the beautiful Sagittarius who will rumble this eclipse trying to find out who they are, and this eclipse will transform them one way or another triggering their 1st house (Ascendant). While Sagittarius’ begins to find themselves, Capricorns needs to be more careful as this triggers their 12th house of hidden enemies such as secrets and health. This will be a collective change for Aquarius that will be focusing on their 11th house of friends and those that protect them. While Pisceans ‘will have their 10th house triggered as far as their careers and where they position themselves in society.
Sagittarius is about our beliefs and perhaps it is time for changes in our thinking about many things. An eclipse in Sagittarius can cause things to become blown out of proportion. There could be difficulty with travel, writers and those who communicate through the media, or have written certain things that prove questionable. Legal issues may arise and this transit is prone to expose scandals. Religious issues may also be in the forefront. We may also see issues/problems with water and drugs.
For example, this eclipse triggers my mars, Venus and my progress chart since this eclipse is relationship related it is magnified to bring new beginnings for many. However, having Venus in Sagittarius, love is a journey as long as there is learning there is love. Deteriorating relationships will bring suffocation therefore; suffocation or being caged will not be allowed with those that have Venus in Sagittarius.
If partnerships are too serious this will kill what is left in the relationship because there are many dreams and visions to fulfill. Therefore having a perfect partner for those that have Venus in Sagittarius or even involved with a Sagittarius must understand that there needs to be continues learning, joking, playing, travel, understanding, dreams, beliefs, truth, understanding and most of all love.
The house in which eclipses fall is an important facet to how one handles the energy, or rather makes use of it. I highly suggest that you make an appointment with my recommended astrologer Leslie Hale and find out how this eclipse could affect you. Additionally, a 6 month Vedic reading brings the vast amount of information to look at in ones life on a physical plane and what adjustments to make so that cosmic transits in your astrological charts can be more sustainable. Trust me when I say what is not meant to be in your life will defiantly leave by the next eclipse in mutable sign which may not be until 2015 (sign of relief) however, though if you have placement in any other planets this will affect you.
In ancient times eclipses were considered as premonitions of complications. During the time of the eclipse, and often in the current time, it is as equally thought of. Eclipses usually activate major destruction’s such as negative weather patterns which could be such things as floods, earthquakes, and snow storms.
The eclipses do not have to be all negative; eclipses can bring new social positions, and a need to take inventory to make enhancements which are the key to longevity. It is a time for expansion, grasp material and obtain understanding of spiritual and rational people and expand to the world your beliefs. Blow out the prominence of sustainability and stability. If hard work was the focus in the past, then there will be rewards. If you have not put in or put just enough effort then the angle of this eclipse will show you what you lacked.
This 6-month period is a time to focus on schooling, education, values, travel, and growth. This particular Eclipse chart places a huge planetary emphasis in one area of the Zodiac, Sagittarius; however, Virgo, Pisces and Gemini’s will be highly emphasized guarding against out-of-control patriotism, misunderstandings and over-sensitivity about boundaries. Tiny details can over-run long-term goals.
“As the eclipse squares Neptune, we are prone to delusion, paranoia and unclear thinking. On the other hand it may be a beautiful time for creativity, psychic readings and endeavors and helping those less fortunate as well as all spiritual matters. It’s all a matter of how you channel the energy” –Leslie Hale
While this eclipse brings changes, we will also experience a flower moon at 12:25 am EST. Folklores consider the first full moon in May the Full Flower Moon, because flowers are usually everywhere and the sun and the moon keep them nurtured.
At times this Full Moon can highlight important methodological or technical advances, or social changes and reforms. Computers and other hi-tech equipment can be subject to breakdown and other disorders. Be on guard against “the unanticipated or rare” around this time. Individuals may present with some rather strange conduct patterns under this influence as well and sudden hostilities or goodbyes may occur for some around this time.
The Fiery Sagittarius Moon compels us to speak honorably and get to the heart of the matter. Trust is resilient, small talk is out… big dreams and lofty plans take shape in our minds. Take a little trip… read a book.
The Moon in Sagittarius brings a time of exciting activity seeking and freedom. People may feel more tentative, polite, and fun loving. It is a good time for exploring interests and ideas and for expansion of the mind. Like the Archer that represents Sagittarius, people may have an inclination toward seeking out correctness and sophisticated meaning and following perception, as well as flights of elegant. While the desire for freedom will be strong, people may want to do what they want, when they want, and be impulsive and independent. These inclinations can cause impatience and a strong need for freedom.
Moon in Sagittarius is very ingenuous with her feelings. She is intelligent and ethical in emotional situations. She treats others with admiration, compassion and a sense of humor. She believes in telling it like it is, even if the truth hurts. Sagittarius Moon needs for others to be truthful with her as well. She is deeply wounded by deceitfulness. She has a talent for schooling others, and is a passionate student. Every emotional test is an opportunity for her to study, and to help others with the information she has multiplied.
The energy between the moon and eclipse may cause need to continually express feelings. Arriving to a quick rational solution for any emotional problem – and will jump right in to provide a helpful opinion. Emotional feelings are not consistent and often switch between on again and off again. This could make people appear inconsistent or two-sided, but is it you or them. Be open-minded. The flip side of this energy may be that the urges of being super friendly in communication and a need to stay in touch with your mother or a female guardian becomes a must.
But the best part about the moon in Sagittarius is that its time to have fun and meet people. It is also about melody, art and finer things in life. It’s about expressing what you want with the all the accuracy behind it. There is a greater need to approach struggles in a peaceful and stable method to overcome oppositions. However, as Sagittarius searches for the truth there is a tendency of inflexibility when the dispute is in their favor. At the same time, Sagittarius wants peace; but in their terms. So why not make music or draw art instead of making war?
During the Sagittarius moon it’s time to care for others by making sure everyone is content. It is also a time of being nurturing and often this type of energy makes sure that a motherly figure will be a joy to ones life. Speaking honestly and straight to the point may be severe but it is also real. This moon also signifies the taking of responsibility in areas of family and those whom you love. Which could mean spending more time with the ones you love, but how will you do that when you also may become very busy working? This moon is quite sociable but having to tear yourself between family, friends and obligations may cause you to be unconventional and disobedient. Be careful of your words and be gentle; the new moon will be a very calming affect. Perhaps take a trip by the ocean or the sea, or read a book instead of stretching yourself too thin and make sure you take time for yourself.
The eclipse can be a very difficult time even when things are perfect. Appreciate the gifts that have been bestowed upon you by the cosmos. Namaste the name of the moon embrace the difficulties and ask for absolution when frustrations have overcome humility.
Allow the heavy burdens of the past months to drop away. You should swim like a light being and an angel of the heavens; in the harmonious seas of bliss and peace. I strongly suggest taking your aspirations that you have made last month and cross them out one by one. Remember never beg for your aspirations.
During the Lunar Eclipse we must try to look at life in a different aspect. You might want to re-write the aspirations like this: “I need help in building what I dream of and power to manifest pleasure through this process. I need the information to love more and the ability to evolve in a positive environment. I need to understand about my goals.”
Since the moon is in Sagittarius, it is straightforward, robust, self-assured, and intellectual. It is my suggestion that you purchase an Orange candle and carve your name through the wick. Anoint the candle with sandalwood or Lavender oil and chant the psalm 17. You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is depended upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding satisfying interaction, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be.
The Sanskrit mantras can be difficult to pronounce but are a powerful source of energy on levels of sounds through us and the creator. For the Solar Eclipse it is suggested that the mantra of Surya be chanted every morning and every night for the entire transit (6 months)
The mantra for Lunar Eclipse is:
Om Chandrakia Namaha
(Om Chan Dra Kia Nahm ah ha)
The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy; the mantra for Sagittarius moon is:
“Om Gurave Nahmaha”
(Om Goo rah vey Nahm ah ha)
This mantra begins to stimulate and flinches the entire chakra. It specifically prepares the chakra to able to handle the inflow of Jupiter energy that gives chakra its power.
Remember the 12 aspirations. Don’t forget to cross the ones you have already accomplished and make new ones. Don’t forget to manifest matters concerning materialistic things at this time. And most of all don’t forget to light a white candle that day carve your name on the candle anoint the candle with Frankincense oil and chant Psalm 17 three times. If you should have any other questions regarding the new moon please feel free to contact me or the Lunar Eclipse, please feel to contact me.
Many people have asked the question how often they should have a reading done by a psychic or a tarot reader. In my opinion, an in-depth reading should be done every moon cycle. Since every moon cycle represents a change, it not only affects our external forces but our internal forces as well. Of course, we all have burning questions every now and then and it may be necessary to have a reading done more often, but sometimes we have to let universe take its course.
When dealing with a tragic situation, it is my suggestion that before you have a reading done you must clear away negativity and fear from your emotions so that a reader can give you the clearest reading possible. Remember also that every psychic bases all their telephone readings on your energy. So remember to ask guidance from the higher power before having a reading so that you can be neutral with your energy. The clearest answers can be given when energy is at a neutral point. Never get a reading when your energy is scattered because you may not receive the best reading possible. 98% of all psychics are empathic and clairvoyant so this energy is very important to them as well as you. Always remember that every reader has their boundaries as to how far in the future they want to read. This is their choice; however, reading beyond 6 months is a very hazy situation. Our free will plays an important role in our destiny and we are able to change anything. This is the main reason why many readers do not go beyond the 3 to 6 month marks.
Please remember that these are general tendencies. It is my suggestion that all mutable signs set up an appointment with me and get a 6 month in-depth reading on the self before getting a relationship reading. In addition, please remember that I am not an astrologer, but rather, a Vedic reader who incorporates tendencies of the sun and the moon which is the groundwork for a specialized reading. I bring to you the outcomes that can be changed.
Furthermore, I would advise you to speak to my recommended astrologer, Leslie Hale and get a path to remedial changes and incorporate the two; building a future that you would like to have.
This Lunar eclipse I will be doing 6 months in-depth reading to prepare us for the finale this fall.
Being a Vedic reader does not make me an Astrologer. Vedic reading is focused on, and geared towards, transformational changes which are embarked by actions and reactions. One ounce of prevention brings solace and understanding of the future.
Unfortunately, due to my prior engagement ceremony, I will be accepting appointments only prior to May 25 and then again to be scheduled starting at 6pm May 27, 2013 through June 15, 2013.
Please contact me prior to making an appointment so that I can be sure the slot for your appointment is available.
Wishing you the best of the transitions through eclipses…

Annular Solar Eclipse
New Moon in Taurus
May 09/10 2013
By Maharani Rutan©
Abstracts by Leslie Hale
On May 09, 2013, a beautiful sphere will appear in our skies with the Annular Solar Eclipse in Taurus. The new moon will create a beginning and the solar eclipse will heighten the effect. This wonderful concerto will begin its journey with a new moon at 8:28pm EST and 5:28pm PST followed by the Solar Eclipse at 10:55pm EST and 7:33. The eclipse will occur in 19 degrees in Taurus.
“During May we will experience two eclipses, the first on May 9, a lunar eclipse at 19 degrees of Taurus occurring at 8:28 p.m. EST. This eclipse follows the solar eclipse in Scorpio April 25.” – Leslie Hale
The amazing Annular Solar Eclipse happens when both planets, the sun and the moon, are in line at the exact position. The line of the planets will cause a ring due to the placement and the size of the moon which will appear as a fire in the sky. Even though the moon will enter our skies while the moon rises and the sun is setting, those in the United States will not see this amazing event. This 6 minute eclipse will be visible for those who reside in eastern Pacific Ocean regions, especially in the area of Polynesia.
This is the third series of eclipses that have affected fixed signs since November 2012; read about it here. The November eclipse was followed by the eclipse on April 25, 2013 (Read about it here) and now the Scorpio/Taurus Eclipse May 09, 2013. Those that will have direct impact from this eclipse will be those that have planets at 15-25 degrees in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.
“Taurus is the natural ruler of the second house of money, income and possessions. These two eclipses occur on the 2ond/eighth house axis dealing with money, income, taxes, debt, income, joint resources, investments, financial markets and death both literal and metaphorical. (eighth house).” – Leslie Hale
The effects of this eclipse can be felt as early as 5 days before (May 04, 2013). The uneasiness of the energy from the eclipse will be felt by everyone; however, the intensity of the eclipse depends upon the house that the eclipse falls in an astrological chart. Every eclipse has a significant demeanor on insurgency in our lives for at least 6 months; therefore, those that are born in the middle of Taurus cycle as well as those that have primary planets in Taurus may feel this effect more so than ever as well as fixed signs.
While every eclipse is relationship oriented, fortunately this eclipse may have a lot to do with the self and how it relates to material wealth and success. Included are areas of loyalty and stubbornness and how they oppose ones wishes and goals.
A solar eclipse brings a new period of individualism and there may be a tug of war between what you are becoming and how others are not changing. This may mean that evaluation is needed. However, when people do change, there may be a need of acceleration on adapting circumstances. Keeping things on the basis of honesty and integrity is bullet proof.
“Solar eclipses can end 19 years cycles and start anew. A solar eclipse occurred at 19 degrees of Taurus on May 10, 1994. We can expect secrets/situations to be revealed and Taurus is a financial sign so we may see shifts in the financial markets over the next few weeks, especially since 3 of the fast moving planets are in Taurus and Venus enters Gemini that day. As Venus enters Gemini it squares Neptune at 5 degrees of Pisces and this is a transit of confusion, lack of clarity and Venus is a money planet. It will square Neptune over the next few days and is a classic transit of being ‘hoodwinked,’ or failing see matters in a clear light and it is not limited to money.” –Leslie Hale
Eclipses are often considered as auguries and difficulties are a natural process of the eclipse. Eclipses are usually activated by major destruction such as negative weather patterns which could be such things as floods, earthquakes, and snow storms. Often, it is seen as an irritable time for humans as the energy could create disorder. The solar eclipse is an eye opener or a nudge; the very essence of our being, and fighting against it, will cause even more conflicts.
The eclipse mid Taurus is definitely geared towards money matters and being sandwiched between relationships and obligations. Questioning what more is needed to get where we want to go. It is time to gather material resources, form a plan, and make choices. Because the choices and plans of our lives are so scattered, the tendency to be frustrated could make it difficult to make choices. This is very similar to the eclipse felt also in November 2012 eclipse. Read about it here.
The eclipses do not have to all be disparaging; eclipses can bring new social position, and a need to take inventory, to make improvements, and to have solidity. It is a time for development, inhale information and acquire knowledge of the spiritual and knowledgeable information from people. If in a career there was a great deal of effort and hard work then definitely the heavens will support you, however, if it was revolving around just getting by then the angle of the eclipse will show you the direction you’re lacking and possibly the loss of a career or a promotional opportunity.
Solar energy is marginal, defensive, diffident, and active – resonated and articulated from within our life force.This eclipse is particularly impartial and purpose oriented where our principles and resolve can be enhanced and exaggerated. Consider our contributions to the world, and how they are expressed to humanity.
This 6-month period is a time to focus on career status, social status and endeavors. This particular Eclipse chart places a huge planetary emphasis in one area of the Zodiac – Taurus however; Scorpio, Leo and Aquarius are highly emphasized by guarding against out-of-control chauvinism, misinterpretations and over-sensitivity about limitations. Tiny details can over-run long-term goals.
“The eclipse falls on Mercury (transport, transportation, young people, communication, travel, ideas, and all verbal communication) and within 5 degrees of Mars. As the eclipse is so close to Mars we could see volatile circumstances and violence, especially in the hot spots around the globe.”-Leslie Hale
Along with the solar eclipse, the heightened new moon will bring a new beginning.With a passage of new ventures and accomplishments, the energy is in just the right place to bring progress, expansion and creating a physical world which one calls their own. The restive will force the impulse to take action and begin something new, be it a small change in the way you approach your daily routine, or a whole new path on your journey through life. The energy is right for making spontaneous moves and following your instincts. This is the time to act from your heart and trust. Know that the Cosmos will support you as long as your intentions are true.
A moon in Taurus presents an excellent time to commit to personal goals; the lessons revolve around security and contentedness. Emotional reactions are calm, firm and shying away from confrontation. There is greater need for a peaceful environment. Nurturing others by providing for their needs is the theme for this eclipse.
The Moon in Taurus ushers in a time of attentiveness and sensibleness. People may feel more conservative and stable. This is a good time to continue or to finish projects that have already been started, as people may be more dependable and thorough. Like the stubborn Bull representative of Taurus, people may be bull-headed — unwilling to compromise and argumentative. Care needs to be taken to avoid self-indulgence and excessive concern or desire for material possessions.
“Mars in Taurus reaches the eclipse degree of 19 on May 17, and we can expect to see important events related to the eclipse occur at this time. On this same day Mercury will square Neptune showing us that events will not be clear or we could receive false information or facts will not be communicated correctly.”-Leslie Hale
The moon in Taurus represents Comfortable, Concrete, Corporeal, Enduring, and Stubborn. We must use the practical senses. The energy between the moon and eclipse may cause the need to continually express feelings. Arriving to a quick logical solution for any emotional problem – and will jump right in to provide a helpful opinion. Emotional feelings are not consistent and often switch between on again and off again. This could make people appear fickle or two-sided, but is it you or them. Be open-minded. The flip side of this energy may be that the urges of being super friendly in communication and a need to stay in touch with your mother or a female guardian becomes a must.
Also I suggest to purchase a Yellow candle, carve your name on it and anoint it with sandalwood or frankincense oil and chant the following chant: “I ask to find the inner light of my creativity” I wish for the universe to help me achieve the recognition that I desire.” “I pray that I may find the strength to take chances with my creativity”.
The Sanskrit mantras can be difficult to pronounce but it are a powerful source of energy on levels of sounds through us and the creator. For the Solar Eclipse it is suggested that mantra of Surya be chanted every morning and every night for the entire transit (6 months). The mantra can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy.
Om Surya Namaha
(Om Surya Namaha)
The mantra for Taurus moon is:
Om Sri shukraya Namaha
(om Shri Shu Kra Ya Nama Ha)
Remember the 12 aspirations. Don’t forget to cross the ones you have already accomplished and make new ones. Don’t forget to manifest matters concerning materialistic things at this time. Most of all, don’t forget to light a white candle that day. Carve your name on the candle anoint the candle with Frankincense oil and chant Psalm 65 three times. If you should have any other questions regarding the new moon, or the Solar Eclipse please feel free to contact me.
This solar eclipse, I will be doing 6 month in-depth reading to prepare us for the finale on May 25, 2013 when things are set in stone until this fall.
Vedic reading is focused towards transformational changes which are sparked by actions and reactions. One ounce of prevention brings solace understanding of the future.
For the best advice, I would suggest you make an appointment with Leslie Hale and get a reading on the effects of the three eclipses. After you have had a complete reading on the transitions of the eclipse you may set up an appointment with me to have an in-depth reading done (6 months). I especially recommend for Scorpios and Taurus’ two readings be done, both in May, or if you have fixed signs in your chart and if you are mutable sign.
I will be accepting appointments for in-depth readings at a reduced price as early as May 7th to be scheduled May 10th through 14th only.
Please contact me prior to making an appointment so that I can be sure the slot for your appointment is available.
Wishing you the best of the transitions through eclipses.

Partial Lunar Eclipse
Full Moon in Scorpio
April 25, 2013
By Maharani Rutan©
Abstract from Leslie Hale
As we move into 2013, the skies will light up with a Partial Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio on April 25, 2013. This magnificent event is the series of eclipses which will impact fixed signs. The eclipse will occur within 5 degrees in Scorpio at approximately 4:07 pm EST, 1:07 pm PST. This will be a definitely a site to see since the Moon will also be full in the sign of Scorpio at 3:57pm EST and 12:57am PST.
This is the second series of eclipses which will continue to impact all fixed signs, especially Scorpio. The first eclipse began its journey on November 13, 2012 (Read about it here). At which time a new journey for many was the closing of one door and opening of another, however, the eclipses will continue to impact fixed signs when another eclipse will enter our skies on May 09, just a couple of days before Mother’s Day in Taurus.
“The first of three spring eclipses occurs April 25, at 5 degrees of Scorpio at 3:57 p.m. and this is a lunar eclipse. Scorpio is a water sign and so it is emotional. Scorpio can evoke dysfunctional behaviors and patterns, wounded feelings, and dark and intense feelings of rage, repressed anger and hurt and reopen old wounds, hurts, and traumas for many.” Leslie Hale
Following the cluster will be a Sagittarius eclipse on May 25, 2013. Naturally mutable signs have been going through changes since 2010. Read about the mutable signs eclipses December 2010, Beginning of June 2011, December 2011, June 2012, and November 2012.
Unlike most eclipses, this eclipse will shine only in one area of the hemisphere and it won’t be seen by many. To be able to see the entire eclipse the best area to be is Eastern Europe or Africa. Though some in central Asia and western Australia will see this, North America will not have the visibility of this event, but will feel it in many other aspects.
To better understand the effects of this eclipse is to look back at how things unfolded on a personal level between November 1-12, 2012. Read about it here.
“Scorpio is the natural ruler of the eighth house of death and transformation, taxes and corporate and joint finances. It also has to do with the way we feel in a relationship as well as sex. Eighth house themes can often seem as though there is a feeling of forced change. Death can be literal and metaphorical in our personal lives and in the world.” Leslie Hale
Prior to the eclipse, Venus and Saturn will be at their opposites. Venus is in Taurus but Saturn continues to remain in Scorpio. Saturn pounding Scorpio is just the beginning of a cycle which could continue for about 2.5 years. Read more about it here.
Fortunately, for many Scorpios it has not been that bad. Though very strenuous in areas of money and work, perhaps employment is not satisfactory, or there are layoffs, or you may even fear you don’t have enough money. Depending on where Saturn sits in an individual chart equates to the impact of one’s life.
The effects of this eclipse can be felt as early as 5 days before (April 20, 2013). The discomfort of the energy of the eclipse will be felt by everyone; however, the intensity of the eclipse depends upon the house that the eclipse falls in an astrological chart. Every eclipse has a significant bearing on creational revolution in our lives for at least 6 months; therefore, early born Scorpios as well as those that have primary planets in Scorpio may feel this effect more so than ever as well as early fixed signs .
“Scorpio is ruled by Mars (and Pluto). Mars is considered the God of war, and Pluto rules power structures, bullies and change that is beyond our ability to control, and is considered the planet of revenge.” Leslie Hale
When a lunar eclipse occurs, the earth is transitory between the Sun and the Moon, creating a Full Moon as we experience every month – but in this case, the alignment is perfect – the occultation of the Moon complete. The intensity of the Full Moon is great, partially covered for a few minutes by the earth’s shadow. The Sun and Moon are occupying opposite Astrological signs, therefore highlighting the particular polarization characteristic in Scorpio. During the period of occultation, the Moon’s reassuring light is temporarily blocked.
This eclipse is particularly relationship oriented – our relations with others can be disconnected, braved, or suddenly welded together as the shock calls one to action. We may deeply consider our feelings and needs within the context of the house where planetary aspects are affected. To fully appreciate the potential of the lunar eclipse, we must explore both houses and signs that are brought into play. First, where the Moon is – we can confront our demons, old habits and fears, and second, where the Sun is placed – we may find the means to embrace a release from whatever bondage we experience in life through our creative efforts. In any event, there are opportunities for deeper understanding and finding a balance in our lives.
People with fixed signs (Scorpio, Taurus, Leo and Aquarius) prominent in their charts will have a hard time separating their individualities from their emotions; failing to recognize that something (or someone) they want may simply represent ego involvement instead of emotional commitment. What we are called upon (or driven) to do may often interfere with what gives us emotional satisfaction, or we chase after our desires, while we waste, or fail to develop, our talents and skills.
“For others the Scorpio theme will have to do with money, credit and taxes. It is a time of looking at the harsh realities of our own personal situations and the state of the world” Leslie Hale
This eclipse will also re-stimulate, to some degree, the issues that were raised by the November 12, 2012 eclipse Read more about it here. This will be an end of a cycle or a significant change in direction of affairs focusing on home, family and health. It may be that you will end a relationship or your partner may become indifferent.
This 6-month period is a time to focus on other people’s money or joint ventures of some sort. Since there are two eclipses in Scorpio, different aspects will occur in people’s lives. For example the first one could bring money and the second could bring introduction. The first eclipse does have Mars in the 7th house which represents relationships which could means that if a person is single, then commitments will be on their minds. If already in a commitment there will be a stronger bond. Even though the first eclipse can seem slightly negative, people who are in a relationship will give the support needed to move forwards.
Eclipses usually shake our foundations, pull us out of our normalcy and supply the energy to see the world without rose colored glasses or even blue if I may add. So that the world is clear and accurate, to best understand this formation think back at 1994 when Scorpio Taurus eclipses first entered for many of us, you will see the theme repeating itself.
“The terrorist attack that occurred at the Boston Marathon on 4-15 is indicative of this eclipse in Scorpio (eighth house death) and the rage that exists in the world we live in, and what a wounded society we must confront during these difficult times. It is being called a coordinated attack and the first on American soil in 12 years. The individuals who perpetrated this attack are without a doubt full of Scorpio rage and anger, and as the story unfolds we will discover the motivation for the attack also involved revenge.” Leslie Hale
While I was writing this blog a friend of mine phoned me and asked “oh I am so scared of these eclipses” I said, “but why?” She said, “well you know us Scorpios can’t stand drama and I can see it coming.” So I explained. … Let me think back ….
A very dear friend died during 1984 which cut my relationship with whom I was and who I became. My family moved from Michigan to Florida leaving behind all my friends. I began a new life where I knew no one. My outlet was to mix with people who were negative and toxic in my life. And through those toxic relationships I learned to be a stronger person by learning to live in forgiveness.
Eclipses are always wild, they always shake and rattle things and things happen so quickly. It could be simple thing as marriage, promotion or career breath through, break ups make ups, whatever the case may be it is the universes way of pushing forwards. With the full moon it will pack the punch and if the full moon falls on your birthday it is guaranteed you will be naturally be transformed whether you like or not.
“This eclipse (moon) is conjunct Saturn, and this combination will bring home our own personal realities as Saturn is the taskmaster from whom we get nothing for free. The eclipse is opposed by Mars and the Sun adding to the volatility and frustration of this eclipse. Taurus energy desires to hang on to things and situations and Scorpio-Saturn energy demands we release them.While this eclipse may evoke some very negative feelings and situations, there is a silver lining in the mix as well.” Leslie Hale
Eclipses always bring news: good bad or ugly; try not to push during the eclipses it’s better to think than act. Eclipse is about planning but not acting. Eclipses are emotional and it’s a deterrence, it helps to get energy to do things that one has never done and don’t judge under any circumstances.
“Saturn and Pluto are in mutual reception that is each is in the other’s sign reinforcing the positive sextile between the two, along with Venus’s trine to Pluto. While we may be forced to deal with our own harsh realities, as Pluto retrogrades aspecting Venus and Saturn we can experience a deep transformative effect during this period as well. Once we accept our own harsh realities, we can move toward solutions and rise to a new level of understanding and then action. But first we must be willing to lay bare our feelings and situations as they truly exist, before seeking a new understanding and ultimately solution.” Leslie Hale
The moon in April also is named the seed moon; so plant those seeds and bring them to the light of the sun. The first few days of the full moon are always a waxing moon; try to avoid confrontation as much as possible.
The full moon in Scorpio is a time for renewal and rebirth like – Phoenix rising from the ashes as will the Scorpios. Many things in our lives may be fading so it is time for rebirth. We are soothing past the old and peeling old skin. This moon is about the Gods, Karma, Sun, the Moon and humans.
In the Buddhist tradition the full moon in Scorpio is known as “Wesak”; a time of enlightenment. Scorpions are naturally expressive, intuitional and psychics. Their nature of picking up signals from people are so honed that they become sponges to other people’s emotions. These emotions for non-Scorpions can be quite theatrical which may cause many people to hide feelings pretending everything is ok but it is not.
When the Moon is full, the heaviness between the moon and sun creates a gravitational pull of the bodies of water which can be linked directly to pressures in humans. For those who are in the same sign as the full moon, be cautious as it can affect the moods with primary signs of Scorpio or fixed signs. There is absolutely no doubt that this moon will create an inner and outer pull of energy that may make some of us quite cantankerous.
Scorpios, and those that have any houses in Scorpio, it is time to expand those houses. It is the most metaphysical time of the year; it’s the spotlight of the Phoenix. It’s time to let go of things that do not fit your hunger, the world is watching you – release the desire and put on a mask that is fit just for you. Keep peace, keep motivation, and keep focused. It will get a little weird. Remember that it’s all in the attitude. Know and understand the psychic and powers of the Scorpio are often feared and respected; there is nothing in between.
The theme for this eclipse and full moon is in the area of relationships, if a relationship ends the universe will give enough ammunition to do so but with the mix of the energy of Neptune (God of confusion), Sun, Mars and Saturn also in the mix, the universal energy will make it easier to let go and show positive paths for reasons to let go.
If a relationship is going through a healing process or a matter of a little time off, now there will be a new sense of energy which will strengthen the emotional bond and patience will be very much appreciated and will save the relationship.
Lastly, if a relationship begins within the few days of the eclipse there will be a forward motion of attraction and it could be a union which will help the relationship bond even further.
There is a greater need during this full moon energy to feel protected and firm. Because of this energy, hostility, contention and anger will bring out the most vivid part in all of us. There is a great need to express the deeper level of our conciseness, but there is a greater need to remain calm if someone tries to tap on to your energy.
Full moon in Scorpio will definitely bring out the stinger even if they are not Scorpios. This experience can be felt as early as 5 days before the exact full moon and 5 days after. Emotions will be penetrating and issues will come out which were not brought up before. There is a need to allow the experience to flow, but to use alliance instead of forcefulness.
The full moon in Scorpio may cause some communication, egocentric attitudes and group activities to not go over very well only because everything and everyone may be exasperating or ill-tempered. Most of the issues that will cause these disruptive behaviors may have to do with sex, formation, birth and rebirth of nature and nurture. It may even be about money and signing of contracts; be sure to read it before you sign anything though mercury is already direct, therefore there nothing hidden.
Everything during the full moon will be exaggerated, egos will be high and inflated and there may be a greater need for relationships. During this full moon there are greater chances to have many stunning dreams and bleeding and hemorrhaging through clumsiness or laziness may cause problems so take care.
This is the time to Harvest, Pray and be Thankful, and to work on fertility and prosperity. Love and romance go wild under a Full Moon, especially around midnight. In a full moon you may become highly objective, clear minded and aware of your own needs and the needs of others.
Plants and herbs were harvested and dried as the richness of the first harvest was realized; as ripe berries were gathered and used for paints, dyes and as a source of Vitamin C. Health and creativity are emphasized and there is a sense of well-being and drama to this lunation.
All Scorpions have been going through a very difficult transit especially within the last year. Scorpions will now become a bit faithful, money oriented, and relationships will no longer be based upon physical plane but emotional and spiritual stability. Any Scorpios that are born in October will now let go of the past (relationships or burdens) and embrace a joyful conjunction of the spiritual world.
If you are a Scorpio and looking for work or a relationship the opportunities may come around May and accumulation now or in June when Jupiter is in Cancer.
When the moon is in Scorpio, we become more accustomed to hidden or mysterious influences and our psychic antennas may be activated. This is a time for working to maintain poignant behavior patterns and for working on overcoming inner fixation thoughts or desires. There can be a need for recognizing habits and reactions that keep you locked in power struggles. This Full moon is most favorable for seeking assistance from your divine center and Higher Power to gently release you from inner negativities. Psychic Power is the focus.
The Moon in Scorpio marks a time of increased eagerness and longing. People may be feeling more self-assured and more interesting, as well as being reactive and imaginative. In general, emotions at both ends of the spectrum are heightened and likely to vary quite a bit throughout this influence. Connections on a deep level could be made with members of the opposite sex with the Moon in Scorpio. Represented by the Scorpion, Scorpio possesses an enigmatic and penetrative nature. Feelings of envy and vengeance may arise, so special caution is needed to avoid disagreements. The Scorpio Full Moon can be a vehicle for power urge, which can often result in hostility or even dangerous impulses.
Since the moon in Scorpio represents Impetuous, Determined, Hot-Tempered, Courageous, and Robust it is my suggestion for us to remain balanced. This full moon is extraordinary to many signs. It is my suggestion that you purchase a white candle and carve your name through the wick. Anoint the candle with lavender oil, sandalwood and chant the psalm 39. You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras, achieving the desired result is dependent upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantra can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy. The mantra for the lunar eclipse:
Om Chandrakia Namaha
(Om Chan dra Kia Nam aha)
The intention of this mantra is to call upon the God of protection and harmony to give you internal and external peace without uncertainties
corpio moon is:
“Om Angarakaya Namaha”
(Om An-ga-ra-ka-ya Na-ma-ha)
This mantra is to call to the lord of peace and removal of any obstacles in your way. The intention of this mantra is the to keep us in balance; from losing our temper through darkness and unfocused energy.
With every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old affirmation even if there is the slightest change and create new ones. The perfect number for aspiration is 10. This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle. Remember never make the affirmations beginning with “I need”, it must be worded “I will need to be shown how to retain”
Please note these are general tendencies, and I highly recommend that you make an appointment with Leslie Hale to find out how this eclipse will affect you. Most of the time Astrology is a guide to what is coming in the future and Astrologers are able to give you a glimpse of what you can expect. At the same time, Vedic readings are also quite important because they use the aspects of the sun, moon, karma, dharma, destiny and spiritual inclinations to encode what is about to come so that you can modify your life to have the most benefit from the eclipse.
I will be offering 6 month personal in-depth readings starting the 22nd. These readings will be encompassing areas of life that may not be touched upon by an Astrologer while your Astrologer will touch upon areas which I am not able to uncover. Together you can amplify the best of both worlds and create a destined path of your choice.
Please remember I am NOT an Astrologer nor do I claim to be one, rather, I am a Vedic Sanskrit Reader who encompasses Astrology as a utility and basis of the reading. This surrounds the magnificent transformational destiny and Karma reading as a conclusion to all readings. One can easily create cohesion between Vedic readings and Western Astrology. I would really suggest that you make an appointment with my featured astrologer Leslie Hale, find out how things are about to unfold, take good notes, then get a Vedic Reading so that you are able understand and adapt to transformational changes for your own destined path.
Many people have asked the question how often they should have a reading done by a physic or a tarot reader. In my opinion, an in depth reading should be done every moon cycle. Since, every moon cycle represents a change it not only affects our external forces but our internal forces as well. Of course, we all have burning questions every now and then and it may be necessary to have a reading done more often, but sometime we have to let the universe take its course. When dealing with a tragic situation it is my suggestion that before you have a reading done you must clear away negativity and fear from your emotions so that a reader can give you the clearest reading possible. The clearest answers can be given when energy is at its most neutral point. Never get a reading when your energy is scattered because you may not receive the best reading possible. This is the main reason why many readers do not go beyond the 3 to 6 month mark.
Wishing you the most irresistible moon ever and I hope you hold your hands together and Namaste the universe for all its simple pleasures

New Moon in Aries
April 10, 2013
By Maharani Rutan©
On April 10, 2013 at approximately 5:35am EST and 2:27am PST we will bring fresh ideas and vigor through the New Moon in Aries. This new beginning will transform all those who are born in the later sign of Aries, especially those 15 to 20 degrees, depending upon the orb. This is the beginning of something new that could have ended during the Harvest moon on September 29, 2012; read more about it here.
By the time this moon has arrived we would have already passed the Spring Equinox but spring season came a little later for many as did the spring projects. If you have not begun your projects, this new moon will give the energy to do so; including the force needed to do things differently where things are not as balanced. Which means anything thing that is not working will be forced out or given guidance and strength to change.
This will be just the energy that is needed for many before the Partial Lunar Eclipse enters our atmosphere on April 25, 2013. Look for more information about this transformational event after the 10th of April 2013.
With all the mix of energies that was felt in March, Pluto the planet God of transformation, ruling planet of Scorpio which has been in Capricorn, will be retrograding until beginning April 12 through September 20, 2013. During the retrograde period we are always advised to follow of a path of self-reflection and Pluto will force anything out that does not belong or meet our needs. It’s almost as if there is a spark of energy to clean house (in our lives). It is time to have better control of things we can control which are in areas of other people’s money or professionalism. Addressing the issue of how communication affects the area of professionalism and how or why we react so defensively when we feel attacked. Pluto retrograde focuses around conflict resolutions and how we can make changes that better our inner circles.
The new moon gives opportunity to put new things into action. The energy is powerful enough to give the incentive that one needs to make the right choices. Small changes will be the trigger to bigger changes and taking chances will be blissful. It is a time for manifestation, planting seeds and making strategies.
When the moon is in Aries there is no time to think; rather it is geared towards taking action and making sure needs are met. Aries desires passion and fire. In the same respect, there is a need for individuality, poise, and temperament. There is a desire to take charge of emotional situations to resolve right away. Due to the nature of Aries, independence is shared and a motherly figure will distinguish objectivity through discovering one’s self with high vigor.
The Moon in Aries marks a time of amplified accomplishment and ambition. People may feel more zealous and be more energetic. This is a good time to begin new projects or to try to apply chosen transformation. Like the charging Ram that represents Aries, people may be inclined to hurry robustly and spontaneously without considering the magnitudes to both themselves and others. Forethought needs to be considered to avoid narcissism and hot blooded behavior. The Fiery Aries Moon brings enthusiasm to our emotions, instant reactions, and bravery in the face of any opponent! Give in to the energy…. strive for new beginnings.
Since the moon in Aries represents spontaneous, tenacious, snappish, courageous, and enthusiastic tendencies, it is my suggestion for us to remain independent. This full moon is extraordinary to many signs. It is my suggestion that you purchase a white candle and carve your name through the wick. Anoint the candle with lavender oil, sandalwood and chant the psalm 39.
You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras, achieving the desired result is dependent upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantra can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy. The mantra for Aries moon is:
“Om Suryaya Namaha”
(Om sur-va-ya Na-ma-ha)
This mantra is the dispeller of oblivion and unawareness.
The intention of this mantra is to keep one in balance; from loosing our temper through darkness and unfocused energy
With every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old affirmation even if there is a slightest change and create new ones. The perfect number for aspiration is 10. This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle. Remember, never make the affirmations begin with “I can”, they must be worded “I can be any one I want to be”
Affirmations for the energy of the New Moon in Aries
I use my intolerance and anger beneficially … to make constructive changes in my life.
I respect the influence behind my passions and desires … and use this power prudently.
I use my self-assertion to construct, control,
and maintain the circumstances I want in my life.
I offer courageous, positive guidance to myself
and others with my choices and measures.
With delight and appreciation, I launch my inventiveness …
to begin the vital creations and projects of my life.
This new moon will yank soul and spirit, bring faith and healing. However, it is also action-oriented. It instigates principles in our lives to start something new. Perhaps a new project, a new relationship or bring back an old one, or is it that you want your personal freedom now? It is about reinventing, reconsidering, and allowing you to let the past go and be eager about what is yet to come.
It is time to let go of the ways that were not working and release venomous relationships that no longer work by focusing on tolerance and moving on. This new moon will bring forth those issues by forcing one to come to terms with harsh truths and releases. These issues are the things that continue to hold you back.
Please note that I am not an astrologer; rather a Vedic reader and astrological venues are the groundwork utilities needed to enhance Vedic reading. It is my recommendation that after you have spoken to me that you contact my recommended astrologers: Leslie Hale or my recommended advisers under my useful links here, for the best advice possible before the eclipses and begin to make transformational changes which you are not aware of.
Remember, an Astrologer tells you what could happen while Vedic readings give direction to what you can do about it. Vedic readings will NOT tell you what to do; rather, tell you the forks ahead to be able to make the best decision which is honorable to all.
May this moon bring you the energy that you need to begin new things and be inspired to be creative.

Full Moon in Libra
March 27, 2013
By Maharani Rutan ©
On March 27, 2013 we will have a Full moon in Libra 5:27am EST and 2:27 am Pacific at 6 to 7 degrees in Libra depending upon the orb. This is an important aspect for Liberians and those that have Libra in their charts.
When the Moon is full, there is strong gravitational pull between the Moon on one side of the earth and the Sun on the other. This type of energy can have a great effect on human beings as we are pulled in opposite directions. Not everyone will notice this push and pull however as it will depend on how powerful the Moon is in your Astrological chart; especially early born Libras or those that have early degrees of Libra somewhere in their charts.
There is no doubt that this energy creates an inner pull, fullness – and may assist us to connect psychologically with others. Everything becomes vibrant and more passionate under the light of the Full Moon – sensations and personalities can become quite inflated, and we may have more consciousness and focus on relationships.
Alternatively, we do have residual energy that is still lurking in the cosmos from Mercury so things may still stir up a bit and communication may still go astray until the 28th of March or at the latest March 30, 2013. Read more about it here.
There is a feeling being energized by the light of the Moon and you may have more incandescent dreams. On the other hand, bleeding and hemorrhaging are more likely during a Full Moon, so take care. This is the time to Reap, Pray, be Grateful, and to work on productiveness and affluence. Love and Romance go wild under a Full Moon especially around midnight.
