Spiritual Release: Supermoon August 2014


Super Moon

Full moon in Aquarius

August 10, 2014

By Maharani Rutan©

Once again our skies will be filled with the luminosity of the magnificent super moon on August 10, 2014. In 2014 so far, there have been 3 super moons; two of them were super moons that were new moons and this summer there was one super moon on July 12/13, 2014 (read about it here). There will be two more, one on August 10 and another in September.

On August 10, 2014, the moon will be the closest to the earth at almost 90 degrees. Due to the pressure of the sun and the moon it would not surprise me if issues of tides and water overflow become newsworthy. However, along with the super moon, this moon sits gently in the house of Aquarius.

The full moon in Aquarius will be sitting pretty at 18 degrees, depending upon the orb, on the Leo-Aquarius axis. The brilliance of this moon can be seen as early as 2:10 EST. This will be the only full moon in Aquarius this year so embrace and breathe. The closest we came to this moon was in August of 2011 when there was also a full moon in Aquarius but at 20 degrees.


The August full moon is also known as Full Sturgeon Moon, named by the Native Americans. The Sturgeon moon is remarkably named after the sturgeon fish available around the Great Lakes. However, the tribes in the southern part of the Americas name it the Full Red Moon because of the heat which makes the moon appear red and hazy. In European nations it was the named Green corn moon due to the green leaves on the corn which protect the kernels of corn allowing them to be sweet and ripe.

When the Moon is full, the pressure of the Moon on one side of the earth and the Sun following creates an unstable draw. This pressure adds difficulties due to our anatomy which holds 80% water, therefore affecting humans as well as the earth. Again, I would not be surprised to hear of rivers overflowing, hurricanes, tornadoes, or anything that mixes with water, but there may even be chances of power failure due to Neptune influences and electrical outages with the surge of Aquarius.

Full moon energies will begin at least 5 to 7 days before it occurs. In this case it could be as early as August 2, 2014, during which time things could become very intense. Full moons are about endings, closing chapters in one’s life, and the final end. For every finale there surely will be a new start. Though it could be difficult, a change is needed for the better. This affect can be intensifying for those who have the sun, moon or any houses in Aquarius. People having a birthday February 09 or five days before or after will feel this energy like no other. There is no doubt that this energy creates an inner lug, a feeling of completeness, and may help us to connect physically with others. Everything becomes brittle and more influential under the light of the Full Moon – lust and self-worth can become quite inflated, and there is more awareness and focus on relationships.


Relationships are always the focus of Venus; Venus will be staying in Cancer until August 12, 2014. “This gives Cancer or those with a Cancer ascendant a real boost. You should feel better, and be making an effort to improve your appearance. Now is your time. This also works for Pisces as it enters your fifth house of love affairs, and Scorpio. Also good for Taurus and Virgo. “Leslie Hale

One of the best aspects during this time will be for Leo’s; not only has Jupiter entered Leo for the for a long duration but Venus, goddess of love, is entering Leo on August 12, 2014, “This works great for Leo, also other fire signs and puts Venus in the fifth house of love affairs for Aries-the best! This can also work for Aries, Gemini, Libra, and Sagittarius.” Leslie Hale

There could be an outpouring of energy during the light of the moon and our dreams will heighten by the energy of the moon. There is greater tendency to have a lack of sleep or feeling restless starting the 9th of August. But be careful with cuts and bruising and there is a bigger chance of hemorrhaging. Please take care.

This is the time to collect, pray and be appreciative, and to work on productivity and affluence. Love and Romance go bare under a Full Moon, especially around midnight. In a full moon there is a greater passion to become highly focused, clear minded and aware of your own yearnings, as well as the needs of others. Plant herbs at this time which will bring something new into your life.

Since the sun is still in Leo and the moon enters Aquarius, both of these signs are in the areas of being artistic and speaking from the heart to the extreme. “I am in charge (Leo) and public, friends, and family consciousness (Aquarius). Basically these two energies equate to asking the question if we are vigorous enough, passionately driven, physically fit or spiritually sufficient to service people at large. However, each Astrological chart is unique and I would suggest that you set private time with Leslie Hale, (Western Astrologer) and discuss how the affects of planets will influence road blocks or sublime bliss.

During any full moon your psyche may be activated but do not react until you are unquestionably certain. The mind will play tricks and later there may be a need to save grace and face.


The moon in Aquarius causes emotional detachment – a knack for impartiality regarding your own and others’ feelings. However, at the same time Aquarius moon brings a sense of objectivity and diversity. There may be tendencies to be an outcast looking in. Viewing sensitive situations rationally and systematically may be the best thing to do. Feelings may come up arbitrarily. The tension in this moon will be to make a choice between what is more significant, personal desire or what is good for the soul and spirit. For emotional contentment seek the company of friends who do not criticize.

During the full moon you may look to your mother for relationship and intellectual stimulation, yet you may feel that she is cold or aloof. Through her opinions there is a deep understanding of how life is a puzzle and it’s time to put it together.

Full Moons in AIR SIGNS are times when the Moon exerts its fragile stimulus, because the Sun as Life Giver is strong in the FIRE signs. The Aquarius moon represents the Harvest Moon; a time for festivity and triumph. Emotions are robust, of a happy and lighthearted nature. Of course this applies primarily to those whose charts are not unduly afflicted in the sign of Aquarius and the other fixed signs.


The moon in Aquarius represents Disobedient, Desolate, Coherent, welcoming, and Changeable; it is my suggestion for us to remain balanced. This full moon is extraordinary to many signs. It is my suggestion that you purchase an orange candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with lavender oil or sage oil and chant the psalm 51. Perhaps you may choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle.

Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras, accomplishing the desired consequences are dependent upon the brilliance of purpose. When it comes to finding fulfilling relationships, it is of the greatest importance to be clear and have an understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. The mantra for Aquarius moon is:

“Om sri Shanaishwaraya Namaha”

(Om shri shan-ish-waraya nahm ah ha)

This mantra produces the quality of friendship within oneself and others.


The intention of this mantra is to smooth your path in life by helping you understand the lessons you have set for yourself and, through karma, the negativity will pass.

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 to never make the affirmations begin with “I want”, they must be worded “I need to be shown how to retain”

These are general tendencies based upon Vedic and Western Astrology intertwined to be as clear as possible. I am NOT an astrologer nor do I claim to be, however Astrology is a building block to the Vedic Sanskrit readers. While astrology concentrations are on fixed emotional and physical events, a Vedic reader focuses on counteractive factors to deal with the energy in hand. While Astrology focuses on educative predictions, Vedic reading looks at causes of an action which prompts a reaction. Hindu ideology confers that these utilities are a necessary part of our lives. Since our mind guides the ego it is our emotions that set the plans into action, good or bad. If the action chosen is passed through humility and honesty then life will always bring out positive outcomes at the end.



Wishing you the most pleasurable and safest journey through this full moon and I hope you are granted the positive light you desire.

For those who are fixed signs (Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius and Taurus) as well as Air signs (Gemini, Libra or Aquarius) this is an opportune time to have a reading done on yourself or your significant other who depict fixed or air signs.



Peace, Propositions, and Planning: New moon in Leo July 2014


New moon in Leo

July 26, 2014

By Maharani Rutan©Finally, some calming effect to many people and society. This moon comes with brilliance and peace. Our relationships with others are changing before our eyes and it always brings positive things.

Leo’s love their family and new things, and this placement comes with beautiful surprise for Leo’s. The void of moon will affect all early born Leos between 0-4 degrees depending upon the orb and it will void the sky at 6:42 pm EST and 3:42 PST on July 26, 2014.



The New Moon empowers many of us to look at life in a new way and allow the soothing influence and wisdom to create new beginnings. The energy is just right to make the modifications that are necessary to begin something new or explore new opportunities. It could be as simple as arranging furniture in a home to feel unrestricted or starting a new business. However, know for sure that the changes are those which have been put off due to procrastination or fear. The heart is letting the instincts signal the time to make changes and say “I am what I am”.

The New Moon supports all ventures, expression and apparitions. Even if there is disappointment there is no chaos to make you feel that it was a catastrophe. Rather, it was an experience that needed to be learned. There is even a greater need to bring music, art, and creativity into the home and environment. And hey, if you want to paint your head pink, go ahead do it (make sure it washable in case you change your mind)!


One of the most awesome gifts that the universe can give is also Jupiter in Leo. For the past 2 years Jupiter, a planet of luck and expansion, will be moving into your sign on July 16/17, 2014. You will see how what you touch is turned into gold and it’s a beautiful 14 year cycle which will bring godsend wish fulfillment. If it is money, a job, or a move, whatever you plan this time God won’t laugh, I promise. Because your heart is in the right place and you wish no one harm. Also, the more fun, and humanitarian the project is, the more prosperous it will be.
The Leo moon brings with it purpose, magnetism and governance. This will be influenced by affectionate, desire, and fulfillment where creativity, integrity, and bounteousness will be lionized. This is the best time to look for close relationships or bring peace to your relationships.


To top off this beautiful gift, Venus, Goddess of love and affection, will be moving in Cancer; it’s about family, it is about romance, but be careful. Cancer does represent over indulgence and there could be the possibility to gain weight and be a little lazy.

The Leo moon often leads people to feel that they have to be the center of attention and must continually receive gratitude. If they are not given this credit they may act childish. This could be in the form of being feisty or over dramatic; creating love or clashes. On the other hand, Leo’s often compliment people and give positive acknowledgement when they need it. They are great cheerleaders and people pleasers that bring out the confidence and courage in others. They are also very family-oriented where mommies are seen as very humble people and they hold the individuality, friendliness, and gifts from their mothers or a motherly figure.



Since last December, Saturn has been retrograding in Scorpio which slowed everything down for them. This beautiful transit, which is often referred to as the most difficult and most inspiring transit, entered Scorpio November 2012. Read more about it here.

Scorpios may have had to move, started a new relationship, got engaged or married, got a new job or left an old one; it could even be their organization that went through a shift. Whatever the case may be, now Saturn pushes Scorpio to RISE! Patience is going to be your virtue; you may find that the job you wanted or you may hear nothing. The effort that you give yourself is what you will get in return at the end of December 2014. To find out more about this transit I would recommend you talk with Leslie Hale here, or my recommended astrologers here.


The Leo energy can sometimes cause us to be more obsessive, stubborn, proud, aggravated, egotistical, selfish, or condescending. It’s harder (but not impossible) to make changes or be supple. The more affection, sympathy and support are practiced during the new moon phase, the more idealism will come of it.

The moon in Leo is Spirited, Daring, Dramatic, Proficient, and Organized AND UNPREDICTABLE. It is my suggestion that you purchase a Green candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with lemon oil or Lavender oil and chant psalm 65. 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 reliant on upon the quality of purpose. 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. Never pray for someone but pray for peace for everyone so that the person in your focus also receives the same without being selfish.

The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. The mantra for Leo moon is:

“Om Sri suryaya namaha”

(Om Shree sur-ya-ya nam-aha)


This mantra will aid greatly in the peaceful and harmonious transition to new and positive energy states. For those that are proficient in mantra chanting and Sanskrit ideology, and have their Padma open through years of practice, you might want to consider reciting:

Om Hrim Shrim Klim Sri Surya Swaha

(Om h rem sh rem cal aim Sur Ya Swa Ha)

one full mala per day or 101 recited daily


This mantra will bring light and deliverance to your life with all the might and power of the universe.

With every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old declaration, even if there is the slightest change, and create new ones.

The perfect number for desires 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 want”, it must be worded “I need to be guided.”


Please understand that I am not an astrologer; however, Vedic readings integrate the dynamism of astrology and bring to the reading predetermined complication and dynamics for free will choices.Vedic readings do not tell you what to do; rather, determine a possible path which might be taken and allow free will choices to resolve conflicts before they occur.

Think of Vedic readings as the GPS navigator and astrology is the vehicle. Without a vehicle you could still get to your destination but it may take much longer. Even if you have a vehicle, this does not mean that you can’t get lost. But sometimes if you knew the road it makes life much simpler. This is why astrology focuses on the moons as well as the sun placement to bring the most directional aspects for beneficial journeys mathematically and Vedic readings provide the choices.


Therefore, to have the best results it is complimentary to have an Astrological reading prior to your Vedic reading and keep them separated but being able to know the far future including the present day so that we can change the outcome dynamically.

I only wish that you make the best of this energy and spend more time with the people that mean the most to you.
