Surreptitious Reality & Shocking Endings: 1 & Only Full moon in Scorpio 2016


Full Moon in Scorpio

Hanumanh Jayanti Festival

April 21/22, 2016

By Maharani Rutan©

Hopefully Mother Nature will allow to the spring to stay for just a little while longer. We have just passed the 2nd super new moon, 2nd eclipse, and are going into the 2nd retrograde for 2016. This full moon will be one of the most powerful moons, next to the eclipse, this spring.

The Taurus-Scorpio Full moon on April 22, 2016 at approximately 1:23am EST and 11:23pm April 21, 2016 (depending upon the orb) will surely light the sky. At 2 degrees at Taurus/Scorpio Axis, the closest to this energy would have been in 2008 when it was at 0 degrees in Taurus/Scorpio Axis.

Full moons have been known to bring natural high tides and water disasters. In 2008, CBS News reported, by May 3, 2008, “About 2.5 million people were left destitute by the storm.” Let’s hope that since many of the events of 2008 are being repeated this year, this does not happen. But perhaps Mother Nature is done being upset with us and will stop giving us such wacky weather. Enjoy the spring with this beautiful Pink moon in the Northern Hemisphere, as it is named, or Harvest moon in the Southern Hemisphere where the harvest is coming.

With 5 planets retrograding not only will this moon create some unstable energy but some deep soul search for many, especially Earth, Fire, Air signs, and all those who have planets in those areas.


Mercury and Jupiter retrograde will slow down earth signs and make them look at life with a different prospective, but it may also bring some energies of not wanting to let go of things so easily. However, Mercury, Mars, and Saturn are not making it easy on Sagittarius as karmic lessons, introspection, and loss of powers are among those things that cause mixed energies as well. In my Mercury blog I discussed this in depth – how almost all signs will be impacted by Mercury, Jupiter, Mars, Pluto and Saturn Retrograde. Maybe it’s another way of Mother Nature telling us to slow down (read more about it here).

As I had predicted, this year is all about transformations. Grace and gratitude will lift us from the abyss to the sublime once we recognize that change is an absolute (read more about it here).


Not only is this full moon going to be powerful but it brings with it the most auspicious day of the Hindu festival called Hanumanh Jayanti. This is a celebration of the birth of Hanuman who was one of truest devotees of Lord Rama. It has been written in the old scriptures and also recited throughout history that Hanuman alone was able, through his free will, to change shape into any form and by doing so saved Lord Rama’s wife and helped overcome evil. He represents a symbol of great strength and energy.

Some of the great masters of mantras can transfer the weakness of certain ones and give them strength of others with permission of free will. The devotees from all over the world visits temples to apply sindoor and ask the priest and Pandits for mantras to heal their children and parents through Hanumans strength.

However, in the eyes of Vedic philosophies, not only does this festival bless this moon but it is also the moon which will be quite important to Scorpios; including those who have primary planets in Scorpio. Anxiety just adds to the pessimism; keep in mind that this moon is about rebirth, regeneration, and integration. Asking for strength and vigor is about surrendering to the unknown.

Pluto rules Scorpios with prevailing areas of vagueness and sunlight. It is a burst between ethical and wicked. Scorpios flourish on control, yearning, and the mysterious. Therefore, if anyone has the sun or the moon in Scorpio this event will be even more penetrating than any other. Ask yourself how much you can erupt or rather, retrieve. From ashes to ashes, the Phoenix will rise.

Keep in mind that just because a chart does not have a sun in Scorpio it does not mean that this moon will not affect you. As a matter of fact, if there are any planets in Scorpio they will be ignited by this. Do I have your attention now?

For Scorpios and ascendants of Scorpios, you may have misperception with your partner; there is something suppressed, but it was not really hidden as it was preferred to be ignored. All that nonsense should not be disbelief. But, if you are in a vigorous relationship it could mean that you have the advantage this month. Communication with your partner will be genuine and close if you are not married, an engagement or a wedding is in the air for some of you. So going forth it is romance which has no absence.

When the Moon is complete, the gravitational pull between the Moon on one side of the earth and the Sun on the other, causes an excessive distress on our own bodily water levels, as well as the earth’s. Many may not feel the effects (depending on how influential the Moon is in your Astrological chart), but there is no doubt that this energy generates an inner tug and fullness – this may help us to bond spiritually with others.

Everything becomes wholesome and more powerful under the light of the Full Moon – desires and eccentricities can become quite inflated, and we may have more consciousness and focus on relationships. There is a spurt of energy from the light of the moon, perhaps there may even be more powerful dreams that night. Flow of blood and hemorrhaging are more likely during a Full Moon, so take care. This is the time to Reap, Pray and be Thankful, and to work on efficiency and success.


Love and Romance go uninhibited under a Full Moon, particularly around midnight. The Full moon is extremely neutral, clear minded, and conscious of your own needs as well as the needs of others. Traditionally, the early Europeans knew that this full moon was a time for plants and herbs to be harvested and dried as the richness of the first harvest was realized.

The Moon in Scorpio marks a time of monitoring yearning and passions. People may be feeling more arrogant and more confused, as well as being oversensitive yet pragmatic. In general, feelings at both ends of the gamut are judicious and likely to vary quite a bit through 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 owns a mysterious and persistent nature. The states of mind of dubiousness and retribution may arise, so special attentiveness is needed to avoid conflicts. The Scorpio Full Moon can be a substance for switched desires, which can often result in fierceness or even damaging coercion.

Recall that Scorpio has a suspicious and secretive nature. Avoid social difficulties. Be cautious of doubt and watch out for the Scorpio Sting. Please remember to pardon and overlook. Be cautious when networking with the opposite sex. However, this could be a good time for influential mixing with another on a deep emotional level!

The moon in Scorpio signifies Impulsive, Strong-mindedness, Explosiveness, Daring, and Vigor. 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 to the wick. Anoint the candle with lavender oil or sandalwood oil 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 accomplishing the anticipated result is dependent upon the quality of intention. 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 are a powerful source of energy. The mantra for Scorpio 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 to keep us in balance; from losing our even nature through darkness and unfocused energy.

For those Hindu practicing Scorpios who are very proficient in mantras and how they are used you may choose the below mantra, however, please note you must know exactly what you are doing as the power of this mantra can have a very negative affect on you.

Om Hrim Shreem Klim Adya Kalika Param Eshwari Swaha

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 begin with “I need”, they must be worded “I will need to be shown how to retain”.

Please remember that I am NOT an astrologer. Rather, I am a Vedic reader, a discipline which incorporates Astronomy, Astrology and Vedic tendencies to build the most accurate readings which lead the pathway to change and reliance.

Prior to getting a reading from me, I would suggest you contact one of my recommended astrologers here and have them lead you to your conclusion and then let me be your guide to avoid pitfalls.

May the light of the moon help you discover yourself and be one with yourself.

Please remember this is a intense full moon try not to make hasty decision  as you will later regret it.

Rise to the glow of the Lions Roar: 1st full moon of 2016


Full Moon in Leo

January 23, 2016

By Maharani Rutan©

As we lay sleeping through the beginning of January, and Mercury retrograde continues to pull us down, the cosmos wants us to open our eyes to our first full moon of 2016. The beautiful Aquarius/Leo full moon at 3 to 4 degree (depending upon the orb) will certainty keep many of us up. The full moon will be at its brightest at 8:46pm EST and 5:46pm PST on January 23, 2016.

With the winter starting late the chill is finally arrived, the howls of hunger and bare essences of wolves in the woods and villages are heard as they are lurking for their next meal. For this reason the Native Americans named the first new moon in January as the Full Wolf moon.


More and more I have been geared toward the philosophical importance of the full moon and its trivial effects on cosmos, humanity, and spiritual transformation. Due to my Gujarati Brahmin upbringing it is imperative that Poonam (full moon) be the highlight of spiritual learning and teachings. As of the Fall of 2015, I began to transition, focusing only on full moon, eclipse, and super moon transits and planetary Vedic transits as the highlight of my topics. I hope that you enjoy the topical convergence.

In the Hindu calendar this full moon is also considered as a Paush Purnima by tradition. It basically depicts that those who bathe in the holy rivers to rid themselves of their sins and also donate to the needy, not only have their sins removed but also have their wishes granted. It is recommended that the night before the full moon, and the day of the full moon, all diet be converted to a vegetarian diet. On the day of the full moon one should not eat until after performing the Pooja. Devotees may go to the temple and do the Pooja or conduct the Lord Satyanarayan Pooja at home and Prasad (offering to Deity) must made with wheat powder, milk, and sugar. If you are unaware how the Pooja must be done you may talk to any of your Hindu devotee friends (it is a very complicated process). You may eat after the Pooja is commenced however, no meats are to be consumed until the following day.


Even though this type of energy has not been felt at this degree in this century, perhaps the closest it could have been was in January of 2008. I wonder if history will repeat itself but on a different scale. Usually on a full moon something shocking and unexpected always has occurred 5 days before or 5 days after the full moon. Therefore, I would not be surprised if stock market drops again , unexpected news is heard of someone retiring, the federal government finally gives a go ahead on the increase of interest rates for home lending, and lastly the weather, could we be up for chill factor or one of the warmest winters? Whatever the case there will be definite news about gushing water, snow storms, and high tides.

(I had originally posted and written this blog on 13th of January, 2016.  The Dow defiantly dropped on the 15th (read here), it was also announced that winter storm Jonas was due to hit on Jan 22/23 the day of the full moon (read about it here). I believe there is still more shocking news to come. 

However, all will not be negative; this will be a gorgeous aspect for those that have placement of Leo anywhere in their chart or even Aquarius. However, all fixed signs (Aquarius, Taurus, Leo and Scorpio) will be affected.


Hence, the irritability of the full moon and the retrograde energy may cause some depression for earth and mutable signs due to Mercury which hasn’t gone completely direct yet. Read about it here.

The full moons are a sign of transformation and force many humans to feel discouraged due to the gravitational pull of the moon around the Earth and the sun. A couple of days before the full moon, usually two to three, the energy begins to shift and is considered a “Waxing” stage. Thus the moon moves further behind the Earth and the Sun’s glow makes it look like a large white spot in the sky. This gravitational pull affects the weather patterns which can result in high tides (great for surfing). The full moon gives reasoning to touchiness, anxiety, and often love-hate relationships. This is not a damaging, but rather a constructive situation. The main reason for this is because by the time the moon passes, the answers are crystal clear which will in fact energize many to be more tranquil and energetic.


This moon will defiantly take many of us back and you should expect the unexpected. All of our five senses will be lighted with the Full Moon – however, the energy may cause cynicism and hyperbolic behavior, especially in the area of interpersonal relationships of all kinds. The energy is so penetrating that intense dreams are probable. Bleeding and hemorrhaging are more likely during a Full Moon, so take care.

This is the time to gather, envision, and be grateful; work on efficiency and achievement. Love and romance go wild under a Full Moon, especially around midnight. The full moon naturally attracts high detachment, clear mindedness, and an awareness of one’s own needs as well as the needs of others.


Often full moons are compared to chapters in a book; the notion of creating new chapters in our own lives. Every full moon gives us a chance to re-write chapters that are no longer working. Whether it is the way we connect, interrelate, observe a situation, or deal with problems in our own lives.

The Moon in Leo marks a time of purpose and charm. Ruled by the Sun, Leo creates a power of pleasantness, ambition, and vulnerability. People may feel enthused, accepted, and liberal. It is a good time to pursuit desires, be cooperative, and to help others.


Like the Lion that symbolizes Leo, people may feel distinguished but also yearn for support and reaction. Care needs to be taken to avoid melodramatic demonstrations, attention grabbing, or control positions.

There is an emotional need to want and be admired by others. Expression of feelings may be in a childlike manner – either cheerfully or melodramatically. There is also a natural tendency to be around children. Encourage others by giving compliments and cheering them to be tough, bold; bold is the key of Leo’s strength. There is also a desire to view a mother or a motherly figure to be glorious, amazing, or as a respected person. Look for freedom, pleasantness, and strength in that relationship.


The Leo energy can sometimes cause us to be more biased, tenacious, gratified, frustrated, narcissistic, arrogant, and condescending. It’s also harder (but not impossible) to make modifications or be flexible. Since the Moon is the closest ‘planet’ to Earth, this satellite literally zips around the Zodiac, completing its circuit in less than a month. It also touches us more deeply than most planets.

The influence of this FULL MOON can be especially difficult or challenging for those who were born under a FULL MOON PHASE, as well as for those of the fixed Sun Signs [Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius and Taurus].

The moon in Leo is Energetic, Brave, Over-dramatic, Managerial, Organized AND ERRATIC. 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 the 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 dependent upon the quality of intention. 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 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 sweet transition to new and positive energy states.

With every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old affirmations, even if there is the slightest change, and create new ones. The perfect number for aspirations is 10. This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle. Remember to never make the affirmations beginning with “I want”, they must be worded “I need to be guided…”

Being that this is quite a difficult time for those affect by Mercury retrograde, such as mutable signs, I suggest that you reference to my blog and chant the mantra listed on my last blog on Mercury here.


For each astrological sign to have the best of all worlds here is a two word advice for you for this month:

Aries:    Be Enthusiastic & Responsible
Taurus: Be Calm & Cautious
Gemini: Be Prudent & Rest
Cancer: Be Physical & Exercise


Leo:             Be Focused & Healthy
Virgo:          Be Focused & Hygienic
Libra:          Be Well-Read & Learn
Scorpio:      Be Active & Patient
Sagittarius: Be Aware & Attentive


Capricorn: Be Focused & Listen
Aquarius: Be Rested & Patient
Pisces: Be Rested & Self-Reliant

Please note that I am not an Astrologer nor claim to be one. The Vedic readings incorporate the energies for the moon and sun guiding the reader to bring the most cultivating answers to everyday changes which bring forks in the road and to make your own destiny through answers of the future.


If you are looking for personalized astrological inferences you may contact my recommended astrologers here. I am just your guide to show you how your actions and decisions cause you forks in the road.

These are general tendencies though some personal things can be similar to what I have explained. Each vision, destiny, karma, and spiritual path is individualized by the grace of the higher power.


To find out how this moon will affect you personally, I highly recommend you make an appointment to speak to my recommend astrologer Leslie Hale or my recommended group of astrologers to lead you to the best way in dealing with conflict resulting in peaceful solutions.

Share this beautiful journey which we call life with gratitude, peace, love, humility, and honesty which embraces changes that bring sublime bliss. I hope that it is the best journey you have ever taken.

In Hinduism as well as Vedic astrology and philosophy Leo is known as Simha Rashi and the sound is just like Simba from Lion King. Though this is not the best year you will have but it is not the worst financially work could change and be careful accidents have known to happen if you are not planning on a child.

Leo moon brings grace and love of family, love with passion, grace, and gratitude.

This moon will affect all fire signs and opposite all water signs.
