Exquisite Exit: New Moon in Libra 2018

New Moon in Libra

Blessed Navratri

October 8, 2018

By Maharani Rutan©

As many Hindus, prepare for Navratri, others will be drawn to the beautiful new moon in Libra. The void of the moon will bring the skies to pitch black on October 8, 2018 at approximately 11:47pm Est and 8:47 pm PST. We will then be graced with the Libra New Moon at 15 degrees.

Those that will be affected by this vivid moon would be those that are born in the latter part of Libra October 15-23, and those that have Libra in their chart. It does not matter where moon sign is placed; it matters to know what area in your life will be will be impacted by the energy of this moon.

Though the moon has never been at 15 degrees in the 21st century, the closest to this energy would have been in 2010 when it was at 14 degrees in Libra. It will not be at this exact degree until 2048 when it returns for a recheck.

The new moon is always about personal cycles. It gives us the dynamism we need to set goals towards the things we want the most. One of our major tasks is to appreciate relationships, and this is what this new moon is all about. But to end relationship when it is not meeting our needs. To only open doors to new ones.


The focal point for the moon is fresh starts in every sector of your life that requires change. Nevertheless, we are disposed to act out of duress; this new moon forces us to act out of emotion, trusting that things will go as planned. If it fails we learn.

The new moon forces us to think about planting those seeds which may have been considered before and looking at opportunities that embrace the types of people, places, and things that are yearned for, if it is not obsessive. Hence, planting seeds to your garden, changing your fashion, or even finding that perfect job, is the seed of change. There are bits of warning here; don’t plants seeds hastily or on a whim as they may be more than you are able to bear. Do it out of the heart, without any expectations, and embrace whatever that is brought to you.

The full moon, and for days after, shook up relationships or created problems with relationships. The new moon brings a fresh future to change the things that no longer fit the adapted lifestyle.

The new moon is a beginning of birth/re-birth; what is clear and changing on steadiness. It’s time to spend alone time to imagine goals, bring them to prosperity, and embrace the transformation that is sublime.


However, this is not just an ordinary new moon, it marks a very important date for Hindus, known as “Navratri.” This is the second biggest holiday of the Hindu culture. Its name, Navratri, translates to Nav which means nine, and arti which means worship. If one is living in any large Indian community or near any large Indian shops, or if you are lucky to be living in India, you would see divas (lamps), lights, flowers, and every home decorated with vivid colors of delight and festivities. The reasoning behind this festival is the battle between good and evil. Hence, each region celebrates it differently.

Since I am from Gujarat I will be explaining my personal definition of Navratri in relation to my upbringing. Navratri focused on asking for blessings from Goddess (Durga); in Gujarat we call her Amba. She is also known as Goddess Shakti (strength). However, it has been told it is the reincarnation of Parvati (Shiva’s Wife) who has three forms which form the energy of the universe. Therefore, this holiday is divided into three sets of three days, one for each form. Without going too deep into the history of Navratri, which could take many pages, I will summarize by saying that some people fast for all 9 days; however, since times have changed, it’s been changed to a half-day fast, eating only fruit and nuts and drinking water during the day.


The first three nights (Oct 9, 10, and 11) are dedicated to Goddess Durga. This is to thank her for helping us overcome evil. Thereafter, it is requested from Durga to give us knowledge and peace. The second three nights (Oct 12, 13, and 14) are dedicated to Goddess Saraswati who is also known to give or bless humanity with knowledge, wisdom, education and the removal of unfamiliarity.

The last three nights (Oct 15, 16, and 17) is dedicated to Goddess Lakshmi who is known to bring prosperity and blessings. Every night includes festivities with pooja, fasting, and Raas Garba (a traditional dance). Gujarati’s will celebrate 9 days of vibrancy and holiness which is what Gujarat is known for.

During the new moon there are self-centered propensities where there may be worries about other people’s motivations and questions about whether others fit the way you observe life. Due to the inner and outer conflict of good versus evil it is again a time to purify your soul. Since the new moon produces struggles between the status quo and possibilities, by cleansing your mind and spirit you will honor your life journey and find ways to release.

A new moon in Libra has a romantic connotation as well as social. There is a greater need to reconcile ideas between different people that we care for. The new moon in Libra permits us to be contented and charming. It also desires kindness and mutual friendliness; both of which are needed so we can see the best in the people around us. There is a robust suggestion that during the Libra moon some sort of a stimulus may come forth to bring some poise where there may have been struggles.


Libra moon inspires us to treasure peace inside ourselves, so we can convey, mediate, and reestablish the balance needed with families and friends. It is also a time to bring flowers into your home and redecorate it, beautify and cleanse to welcome friends. It may even force people to learn art, write, change fashions, and indulge in things we cannot afford.

Additionally, this melodious moon encourages equality and allows us to bring new people into our lives; if it is to bring someone new or to filter out skirmishes so that important matters are more balanced it does not matter if there is harmony and peace. The scales of Libra are very rare; it is the only sign that does not have a living thing attached to it, but it is a sign of balance. This means that we are disposed to be neutral, where the head may rule over the heart – it’s a necessity to explore your own self before you can make decisions in any area of a relationship. This is the time to give good purposes towards any conflicts.


Advise to Libra’s for the rest of the year:

As you may have been unsure what you wanted to do in the past, now the time has come for you to know where you are going and how you are going to get there. If you have not seen it already, your hard work has/will pay off. Hard work and clear goals will help you and learning new skills will give you the clarity you need to continue moving forward. Long term relationship decisions are best after December as you may lose your patience any time sooner. Your financial life will pick up now until December, however you may also incur additional expenses. The more stresses you take on, the more it will take a toll on your health. Your charisma is going to be on the upswing in November, which will give you the energy you need to acquire more monetary gains. The end of the year looks better than any other month and you may decide to move into some more spiritual inclinations.


Please remember this is general advice; everyone has different aspects that could stand in the way of the predispositions listed above.

The New moon in Libra, which is the first New moon after the Autumn Equinox, forces us to look very intensely within ourselves to see what has not worked and what has. Try not to negotiate for sake of peace if it is not what you really want. True cooperation is made with civility, admiration, honesty, compliance, and trust.

As I have stated in my blog, full moons are very auspicious in the Vedic Philosophies and this is the time to begin anew (unlike the Western ideology). Alternatively, when there is darkness from a new moon, there is darkness in the human soul which means endings of some kind. Therefore, there exist the possibilities of conflicts or misunderstandings during these times. This has to do with our needs conflicting with the needs of others. I would not be surprised if relationship ends during this time, I also would not be surprised if decisions are made for the purposes of all.

Moon in Libra may crave the need of a harmonious relationship with a kind partner to feel at serenity, emotionally. Dependable assessment and equality with others will be the force of the new moon energy.


Libra Moon bring the ideal of sweet relationships. It’s a need to please the people you feel close to and want to reinforce the relationship with empathy, a charming manner, and with music or beautiful things. Libra Moon wants a close friendship, partnership, or marriage to feel cherished and safe. You may have a need for harmony, congruence and pleasant surroundings. In emotional circumstances, the Libra Moon tends to act very sensibly and strives to make fair decisions.

Altogether it’s a lovely time for social get together; when the awareness of self, as expressed in the first six signs of the zodiac, becomes united with the consciousness of needs and desires of others. While all may not be well for everyone on the astrological front, for some it will be something that will glorify: Take this time to enjoy every part of you and know that if nothing changes then you are not changing.

Since the moon in Libra represents Plea, Beautiful, Comfortable, Nondiscriminatory, and Affectionate, it is my suggestion to remain balanced. This New moon is extraordinary to many signs. It is also my suggestion to purchase a yellow candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with lavender or peppermint oil and chant the Psalm 26.

You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. The four mantras, from easiest to most efficient, will assist you in bringing peace into your life.


Easy:

Om Hreeng Kleeng Shreeng

Ommm Hriing Kliiing Shriing

Difficult

Om Tatva Niranjanaya Tarakramaya Namaha

Advance

OM draamg dreeng droung sah shukray namah
Om Rajadabaaya vidmahe, Brigusuthaya dhimahi,
Tanno sukrah prachodayat

Expert

Om Sarvabaadhaa Vinirmukto, Dhan Dhaanyah Sutaanvitah
Manushyo Matprasaaden Bhavishyati Na Sanshayah.
Om Om Shree Mahalakshmyai Cha Vidraahe Vishnu Patrayai Cha Dheemahi Tanno Lakshmi Prachodayat Om
This mantra produces the quality of friendships within oneself and others.

Please note that I am not an astrologer, nor do I claim to be. However, the values of the planets play a great prominence on Vedic Sanskrit Readings. In the Hindu philosophies it states that we are mortal beings and we will always respond to our environment through ego driven actions until we can surpass the ego, become one with the universal energies, and learn to adapt to what is in front of us with a complete embrace.


I wish you the best of the new moon and hope that you are able to capture the truth during the full moon so you can began your journey into sublime bliss.

Remember, if you have never seen what Navratri is about, it may be beneficial for you to stop at a Hindu temple and see for yourself the vibrancy of the festivities.

Namaste

Blue Moon Blessings for our Brave Babies: Full moon in Libra 2018

Full Moon in Libra

2nd Blue moon 2018

March 31, 2018

By Maharani Rutan©

With the spring equinox behind us, we have the privilege of enjoying the sun and I can only hope that the storms are behind us as well. However, one never knows when mother nature will get upset and remind us that she is a powerful force.

March 30th marks the time of the second most beautiful constellation. In my 2018 predictive blog (written in December 2017), I stated that “In 2018, the skies will be twinkling every now and then, we will have one super moon, one micro full moon, and two micro new moons. Additionally, we will have two blue moons, one black moon, and one red moon.” Read more here.


This is the second blue moon of 2018, but it is also a full moon. A blue moon usually occurs when there are two full moons in one month. On March 2, 2018, we had a full moon in Virgo as Holi began in many parts of the world, marking time for spring to begin. This second full moon will now glorify equality and justice.

I have always pointed out that the full moon effect usually begins 7 days before and 7 days after the full moon appears. Isn’t it kind of ironic that “March for our Lives” was held the day I write this blog (March 24)?


On March 31st, we will have a full moon transiting in Libra at 10 degrees. The full moon will illuminate the sky with a hue of blue around 8:37 a.m. EST and 5:37 a.m. PST, transiting 10 degrees, depending upon the orb.

Even as the moon will be blue, beautiful, and full, for many Christians it will signify, “Black Saturday” or Easter Eve; often represented as mourning Jesus’s death, while meditating and fasting for his resurrection. Many churches around the world will celebrate Easter vigils, meditations, Baptism, and the Service of Light, while Deacons will make Easter Proclamations and scripture reading will be heard throughout the congregations. The following day will be the joyous celebration of the resurrection. But how could it be that this falls on April 1 (April Fool’s Day)?

There have been many stories as to how April Fool’s Day was adopted. I believe that added to Easter, not only can children have fun, but adults can as well. Many of us have been basking in mourning, shock, and speculations, it’s time to let loose and laugh a little.

This moon will affect all those that have Libra in their charts, as well as cardinal signs. When the Moon is full, the gravitational pull between the Moon, on one side of the earth, and the Sun, on the other, has a great effect on our own bodily water levels, as well as the earth’s. You may or may not notice the effect (depending on how powerful the Moon is in your Astrological chart), but there is no dispute that this energy creates an inner pull and fullness which may help us to sensitively connect with others.


Everything becomes lucid and more intense under the light of the full moon – passion and poise can become quite overstated, and we may have more insight and spotlight on relationships. There is a good chance of getting a surge of energy from the light of the Moon and having more luminous visions.

But be careful that the romanticism and hallucination, created by this moon, does not cause more confusion. Mercury retrograde is in full blast at the moment and may only get more intense as time goes on.  Read more here.


The full moon brings with it random decisions, yet some may find balance between control and harmony. However, there may be some tension between our private desires to be alone, and feeling so alone that we will find anyone to fill the void. This could leave one with an extremely bad taste at the end of the day. Therefore, it is suggested that you do not make any decisions regarding relationship issues until the energy of the moon has passed the orb. This is 7 to 10 days before and after the full moon.

Then again, the delight of this moon brings with it Venus which sits pretty in Taurus. Neat, expensive, and romantic things are what Taurus loves most. These go hand-in-hand with Libra who loves poetry; perhaps a love story can be written.


During a full moon there is high impartiality, clear mindedness, and an awareness of your own needs, along with the needs of others. Listen to your inner voice and seek a balance that is important, one that is not about power and control. There are no winners or losers in a relationship, there are only educated individuals.

Perhaps there is a feeling that there is too much taken and not enough received, or that the burdens are just too much to carry. This moon questions our competency to accept other people’s duties, or if we should simply let them go. The pressure of this moon will not keep many quiet like they should; if you find yourself in this situation, remember to speak with truth and honesty. Don’t over scrutinize as emotions may get the best of most of us – be cogent.


Due to the volcanoes within our emotions, control issues may not allow stability to be restored as it should, therefore watch what you say to avoid fiery arguments. Convey needs and find sacrifices which are necessary to alter your own identity so that relationships can be honored.

The full moon brings with it a robustness to plant and harvest. While the moon is in Libra, there is a need to have a nourishing relationship with a loving partner in order to feel at peace, psychologically. There is an urge to regularly evaluate emotions, seeking just the right symmetry with others. There is also an energy for grandeur and the fine arts, so express them in a significant way. Inspiring others by giving them honesty and seeing their spectacular uniqueness is the theme for this full moon. There also could be an admiration of a mother or motherly figure to model wisdom, sensitivity, appeal, and fairness.


Since the moon in Libra represents Appealing, Beautiful, Expensive, Fair-Minded, and Loving, it is my suggestion for us to remain balanced. This full moon is extraordinary to many signs. It is also my suggestion that you purchase a yellow candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with lavender oil or peppermint oil and chant Psalm 26.

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.


This year I have chosen four mantras; the easier ones will assist those who are new to mantra chanting be more flawless and articulate. The more difficult mantras will assist those that are advanced, and experts, dive deeper into the spiritual world.

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


Easy

Om Hreeng Kleeng Shreeg

(oom Hriing Kliing Shriing)

Difficult

Om Tatva Niranjanaya Tarakramaya Namah

Advanced

OM draamg dreeng droung sah shukray namah…Om Rajadabaaya vidmahe, Brigusuthaya dhimahi, tanno sukrah prachodayat

Expert

Om Sarvabaadhaa Vinirmukto, Dhan Dhaanyah Sutaanvitah… Manushyo Matprasaaden Bhavishyati Na Sanshayah…Om Om Shree Mahalakshmyai Cha Vidraahe Vishnu Patrayai Cha Dheemahi Tanno Lakshmi Prachodayat Om


These mantras produce the quality of friendship within oneself and others. Their intention is to smooth your path in life by helping you understand the lessons you have set for yourself, and through karma, the negativity will slowly go away with every moon cycle. Remember to cross out any old affirmations, even if there is the slightest of change, and create new ones. Remember to never make the affirmations begin with “I balance”, they must be worded “I need balance in my life with friendship and love.”

When it comes to aspirations, the perfect number is 10. This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle.


This full moon will have a great impact on cardinal signs and it is advisable to have an updated reading on yourself. Remember, for every ending there is always a new beginning. But remember mercury retrograde will not make relationships easy.

Wishing you the best of this moon and I hope that it brings inspiration. Love to you always.

Namaste,

Maharani
