Truthful Turbulence: Strawberry Moon in 2019

Full moon in Sagittarius

Strawberry/Rose Moon

June 17, 2019

By Maharani Rutan

Here we go again. As the scenarios of 2000 and 2008 continue to be reviewed around the world, I can’t help but sound like a broken record that issues of the past keep being brought up for review. “There have been ongoing talks about the next financial crisis, and it may be like the ones that occurred March-July 2000, 2001, and again in 2008 and 2009. For sure, there is still something covert happening on the financial front.”- Read more about it here

The full moon is expanding the skies with its bright hue, opening our eyes to reality but only for a moment. On Jun 17, 2019, at approximately 4:31 EST, 1:31am PST, the moon will move into Sagittarius to form a Gemini/Sagittarius axis at about 26 degrees, depending upon the orb. Usually, when a Full moon occurs it is not an end of something, but rather the beginning of a seed or a plan we may have developed and its now coming to fruitfulness. Take a moment to consider what was planted around Christmas of 2017. Now you will see how your efforts have, or have not, come to pass.

This moon is at the exact degree as it was in June of 2000, and very close to the full moon in 2008. I believe most of our focus has been towards the floods in the Midwest, therefore, climate issues should be prominent as if we are warned ahead of time these issues can be evaded. Year 2000 was not as intense as 2008 however, both had many significance, as far what Mother Nature has been trying to tell us. Moon is in Sagittarius which signifies heat and fire, thus, parallels between all three significant years, (2000, 2008, and 2019) would signify the similarities.

The summer heat wave brought drought and hit all time heat records in 2000, boiling Texas and resulting in over 150 deaths. Whereas, major drought caused un-containable wildfires in California in 2008. Thus, what can we anticipate this year? Perhaps little more of the same.

In the world and on the U.S. front, there are more cyber viruses attacking Fortune 100 companies and Apple computers finally launches the iPod. DNA sequences were introduced (HGP). An increase in internet use boomed and 8% was accounted for by the United States. As we move fast forward to 2008, those HGP now became a household name by creating a personal retail DNA test kits, and there were well over 300 million internet users.

Not to my surprise, educational structures have been in the news and will continue to be for quite some time; I would not be surprised if transportation, k-12 education, and details are in the news.”- Predictions of 2019. Nevertheless, the similarities in the subject have also been substantial in 2000 and 2008. The journey of reform began in 2000, policy makers eyes were opened when Nobelist James Heckman pinpointed in his research the issues that early childhood education improves economic inequality and paves the way to a prosperous future. Whereas, in 2008, implementing crime and violence prevention within the k-12 programs to keep children safe.

With politicians behaving badly, what are we really showing ourselves and the world around us? If the behaviors of higher authorities can be so childish, can we act in the same manner? On the other hand, why should we be the judge and jury? We will soon see that the planets and the universe will work together to put these behaviors under a microscope and shake up these people. “For many people, this year will be a year of looking at our past behaviors and how they impacted our current outcomes and results. Not all will be good and not all will be bad, but they will be shocking and transformable.”Predictions of 2019.

Did we not hear about impeachments in February and March of 2019 (during retrograde)? In June here we go again, “not impeachment. he should go to jail.” If we can let nature play its course would this world not be a better place? But this comes with the Sagittarius energy of fire and more fire. Sagittarius seeks the truth and truth shall prevail very soon. Mercury retrograde (coming June 20-Aug) will set the course to reevaluate the past, Sagittarius moon will seek the truth and add to the energy, while the eclipses will definitely shake things up.

Gracefully, this full moon is named the strawberry moon, or rather a rose moon; a definite contradiction. The native folklore called this the Strawberry Moon because it is time to harvest strawberries and blesses its harvest through its glory by the sun and the rain. But the glory becomes reality when the smell and blossoms of the roses are at their peak. Not to mention that it creates a beautiful hue. But in just a few more days, Summer Solstice will make it official that we must enjoy the summer and Mercury retrograde will slow us down to make sure we do so.

While dismissing the date, and the color of the moon, enjoy the natural beginnings by ending something through truth. But most of all, do not fear the truth as it sets you free. Let it be known that anyone who is a Sagittarius, or has any planets or houses in Sagittarius, will be affected by this full moon. The effect of this moon is a distinct illumination and therefore has a specific influence.

During the full moon there is a predisposition toward being impartial, attentive, and really observing the needs of yourself and others through a telescopic glass. This full moon supports us in being more plentiful to our own spiritual way of life. It also drives our ideas and promotes the taking of chances. The bigger picture of our lives is seen permitting us to accept being a spectator to the tapestry of our own fundamentals. Though the tapestry of our lives can be remarkable and sometimes outrageous, there is no doubt it is our own fabric that has shaped this while being involved with circumstances or people that have brought us pleasure or pain.

The Fiery Sagittarius Moon compels us to speak morally and get straight to the heart of the matter. Opinion is robust, small talk is inaccessible, and big visions, or arrogant plans, take shape in our minds. The Moon in Sagittarius brings a time of study, chasing, and impulsiveness. People may feel more daring, amicable, and fun loving. It is a good time for searching happiness and ideas, as well as enhancing the mind. Like the Archer that represents Sagittarius, people may have a bias toward seeking out truth and higher consequences, following insight, as well as flights of fancy. While the yearning for independence will be strong, people may want to do what they want, when they want, and be impulsive and open-minded. These tendencies can cause annoyance and a strong need for freedom.

Every month highlights a certain Astrological sign and its energy; thus, I will bring to you the universal inclinations which could support in making the shift from full moon to new moon as smooth as possible so that each step is spiritual. While many would want each astrological sign to receive focus, each astrological energy is emphasized only during its peak time and it would not be fair to bring forth examination for every sign when one is more prominent than others.

Please note, this is not Vedic or Western Astrology, rather, it is based on VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories) which illustrate causality that contributes in making correct decisions for a positive future.


Dearest Sagittarius, 2019, will be one the most thought-provoking years of your life. With Saturn paving the way to your destiny it’s time to make peace with yourself and those around you. You will now have a peaceful growth with primary focus on financial and individual improvements; now you are making plans and following through with them. The difficult lessons you have learned in the past are now assisting you to plan for the future. If you have children/grandchildren, you will find that this part of your life is not as painful. Collaboration with feminine entities will surely bring happiness. You will have plenty of support from your family in areas of career, travel, and education. Work hard as luck will not be in your favor, however, public settings will bring growth, but promotions and recognition may not come your way.

Saturn: April 2019-Sept 2019. Since Saturn is retrograding in your sign according to VPAT, Surya (God of Truth and Justice), may test you. You may have plenty of pressure and tests by the universal energies. You must adjust with all your strength; however, this may cause your patience to be tested which could lead to conflicts. Take care of your partner. Career may have roller coaster rides and staying focused on your career will help you expand in the future.

Ketu – Now that Ketu is in your sign for the next 2 years, things will stay status quo. Your health should be your number one priority. Past sickness may be lurking which could cause inclination towards spirituality to bring some needed peace and happiness. You may feel people around you are not as happy or going through difficult times. There may come a time where there will be physical or emotional distance between you and your partner.

Rahu – As it has moved into Gemini, this begins the trial of testing your commitments. You must do what you can not to create unnecessary conflicts or put undue pressure on people that you care for. Instead take the time to understand both aspects of the situation before jumping to a conclusion. You will have devotion to the relationship and space will be a good thing. Do not get involved in financial partnerships with anyone as they will cause conflicts of duties and proportion of investment. There also could be decisions of family property and resources which also may cause unnecessary struggles.

Uranus: Do not expect your life to be on a timetable. Your routines will surely go through some changes which could cause health situations to become intense. Do not try any new remedies which you have not used before as they will cause more health issues than necessary. Instead, educate yourself on research-based findings.

Jupiter – Hopefully this shall too past. Jupiter is transiting through Scorpio until August 2019, according to VPAT. But don’t think of this period as a negative transit, rather, this is positive, for everything negative must go and positive must come in, but with it comes an adjustment of attitude. You will do well in education and relationship matters. You may have financial difficulties, so be careful with unnecessary spending and handle stress calmly. With the grace of (Guru), you will now have the pleasure to speak with individual freedom. Stay focus on the things you wanted to do for a year and carefully consider any decisions.

Mars: Thank God that Mars is changing signs at the end of June. The energy of Mars will create confusion, misunderstanding, and difficulties in all aspects of interpersonal, business, and family relations. You may find yourself in the middle of a conflict or gossip you don’t need to get yourself involved in. Be careful not to be around “women” who do not have respect for your environment and the life you live.

Maharani’s Advice

Dear Sagittarius, this year is much easier and happier than others in the past. But this does not mean that you should take everything, everyone, and situations for granted. Shortcuts, irresponsibility, procrastination, and work schedules could cause stressors, conflicts, and missed opportunities for you. Recharge your batteries often, think before your act, look at past situations, focus, and most of all, your worries will be dismissed. However, be careful not to spread gossip, speak ill of anyone, and take the time to consider your actions. Being in the limelight does not always give you positive results rather, be the light that brings enlightenment to others.

The moon in Sagittarius is very trustworthy with her feelings. She is bright and principled in subtle situations; seeing others with reverence, kindness, and a sense of humor. She trusts in telling it like it is, even if the truth pains. Sagittarius Moon needs for others to be honest with her as well. She is intensely hurt by deceit. She has an ability for tutoring others and is a fervent student. Every expressive meeting is an occasion for her to engross and help others with the information she has prolonged upon.

The moon in Sagittarius is Candid, Direct, Vigorous, Excited, and Wise. With all this mixed energy, it is my suggestion that you purchase an orange candle and carve your name through to 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 planetary cycle which will be the most intense formation this year for you.

This year there are only two mantras, one will be easy for new learners and other the difficult so there can be more fluency and advancement of chanting Sanskrit mantras. The mantra for Sagittarius moon is:


“Om Hreeng Kleeng Sauh”


(Om hiring Kliing sa uh)


Gurubrihaspatirjeevah suracharyo vidaanvarah vaagisho dhishadon dirshashamshruh pitambaro yuvaa

This mantra begins to stir and trigger the entire chakra. It specifically prepares the chakra to be able to handle the inflow of Jupiter energy that gives chakra its power.

Please note that these are general tendencies of the full moon and not to be taken as direct negatives or positives. I am NOT an astrologer nor claim to be one. However, as a Hindu Sanskrit reader, these values are used as a beginning for my readings. In the Hindu ideology, planets thrust the power of resistance and our free will acts. Therefore, anything done through humbleness and nature will play a great importance in life’s positive outcomes.

Wishing you a fun and fulfilling full moon

Devise Deeper Devotion: Partial Solar Eclipse in Capricorn 2019

Partial Solar Eclipse

New Moon in Capricorn

Jan 5/6, 2019

by Maharani Rutan©

As we look forward to 2019 with optimism and grandeur, the universe wants to make sure we are awake and alert. This year will be full of hard work and major transformations (read more here). Hence, the first instance of the transformation will be our first eclipse in Capricorn/Sagittarius of 2019. I had discussed this eclipse more in depth in my predictive blog of 2019 (Read more here)

According to VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories), an eclipse is often referred to as negative impacted energy. This description is related to the old scriptures; wherever the eclipse falls (viewed) will be the area of most negative impact.

On January 5, 2019, the new moon in Capricorn will void the skies at approximately 4:05 pm at 15 degrees. As our skies begin to become darker, the Partial Solar Eclipse will be underway on other side of the world at 8:24pm EST. Trust me when I say each one of us will feel it, even if it’s not within our visibility. This eclipse will only be visible in east Asia (China, North Korea, South Korea, and Taiwan) as well as upper Russia, some parts of Alaska, and smaller outer islands in the U.S.

According to the prehistoric literature, the word January was implemented by the Romans to suggest the God Janus who had two words which signified beginnings and endings, as well as the past and the vision. This will be appreciated during the eclipse energy to set the stage to let go of the old and welcome the new. Remember what I’ve said in the “past”, this is a perfect replication of an end to something that occurred in July of 2009. For those who keep a journal (I recommend this for all my clients) go back to something that ended in July 2009, this is the opener to make fresh beginnings.

The eclipse is in the 15 degrees of Capricorn, people with Capricorn as Cardinal signs (Libra, Aries, Cancer and Capricorn), including those that have Capricorn in their chart, are more likely to be affected. Under this eclipse, people will want to turn their feelings into impartial experiences. Before anything else, there must be accomplishment or some form of instant physical gratification before feeling content.

Solar energy is peripheral, distrustful, defensive, and active; it is echoed and expressed from within our life force. This eclipse provides us the robustness to look at how we are using our possessions and properties and how these belongings or resources affect how we handle our everyday lives. Furthermore, it also gives us influence to come up with a strategy to trust how we live daily. This eclipse will also permit us to gaze at our lives to see where our strategies are and to question their sustainability, whether they are unwavering to serve everyone around or if they need to be re-mapped.

Eclipses always focus on revolution and are mostly in the physical world established through our spiritual world. Solar eclipse with a new moon forces us to jump start something pioneering, to pledge ourselves to negotiation. It also allows us to be discriminating with events which come through exploration, choices, energy; taking ourselves to a higher level. But our worries will be maximized due to the burden of revolution which will be on a predicament mode.

During the Surya Grahan (Solar Eclipse), it is advised not to put any plan into action or start anything new, even if new moon represents a new beginning for some. Unlike the Western ideology, new moons are NOT auspicious for VPAT. It is also advised that there is no cooling off period of for 3 hours. This means no hygiene regimens either. Instead, it is advised to recite mantras, burn sage the home, and make donations to a temple or church after the eclipse has passed.

The eclipse will assuredly bring penetrating energy and strain. It will question what is realistic and what is needed to avoid the detriment of love, relationships, and those things that we treasure. It will bring awareness of philosophies and the way we relay them to our existence. Also, to question ourselves whether we are being fair and honest to ourselves. More importantly though, if we are being truthful to people around us, as trust must be mutual. Through this consciousness, understanding of past pain, and contemplation, we will be given the thoughtfulness of forgiveness and healing. There will be some reason why old relationships that are not beneficial will die. If any relationship is poisonous or not settled it will also die and the eclipse will give you the truth, even if it hurts.

Currently, Mercury and Jupiter are still in Scorpio, Venus and Saturn in Sagittarius, Mars in Pisces, Rahu in Cancer, and Ketu in Capricorn. These placements could cause communication to remain a bit manipulative surrounding money or power. Difficult lessons in love could also remain. Men or authority figures could potentially be a bit emotional while others are looking at their lives and what they can change, the rest are paying back their karma from their past actions.

Look back at July of 2009, but more importantly, December 25, 2000. The eclipse was at 14 degrees whereas this eclipse is at 15 degrees. Keep in mind that no eclipse brings good results as far as Vedic philosophies are concerned, especially when a new moon is involved. Additionally, this influence was just as powerful as occurred on January 1, 1992 and Jan 1, 1973. Perhaps you may not have been born or cannot recall, but it is something that is repeating itself. If you are looking for a similar energy, look to January 4, 2009.

Usually when the solar eclipse is involved with a new moon the placement of the eclipses is dominate to the sign in which it falls, in this case it is Sagittarius / Capricorn. Both signs will be mostly affected by this eclipse. Major changes will occur for those that have placement anywhere in their birth chart. These individuals could have issues, or rather, focuses on partnership and spouses, and could find that their significant other is going to have to end something big or something that they were settled into, to begin someone new.

On the other spectrum, anxiety, delays in legal issues, children, misunderstandings with in-laws, and losses of business profits are just the first step to the changes. This energy can be felt as early as December 27, 2018 and extend throughout the next 6 months for those with primary planets in Sagittarius/Capricorn.

When trying to figure out what exactly it will be, go back to the list of dates which were given a couple of paragraphs above and ask yourself the following questions: Are you plan on making grand changes to your life in 2019? Do you like what you are doing as a profession? Where do you want to be months from now? Are your dreams and goals realistic or just a dream? Where do you want to go? Do you have enough resources to make it happen? What kind of job do you want? Is it something you can really do or simply wish to do?

The majority forces will be extravagant for those who have a birthday that falls on January 4 & 18, February 2, March 4, April 3 & 18, May 4, June 4, July 5 & 21, August 6, September 6, October 6 & 22, November 6, and December 5; this, once again, will be a changing pathway for you. Even though the exact degree of the eclipse occurred in 1991 and 1992, there was some re-establishing energy of what is to occur in our lives as it did 1990 through 1992, and 2000 to 2002.

This eclipse also touches the heart of cardinal eclipses that were activated last summer (July 05,2018) It is questioning our emotions related to issues of the collective “us”, also between feminism and masculine, father and mother, and between accountability and sense of fitting.

Though this eclipse is geared toward the cardinal signs, the mutable signs (Pisces, Virgo, Sagittarius and Gemini) will not be left out from the part of the solar eclipse. Their introspection will be geared toward questioning their tasks against their autonomy. This may cause many to tap into their restrictions of life to question their skills of whom they are and what they are becoming. This could eventually bring them great contentment and affluence, while bringing into their lives people whom could impact them to climb in their life in a changed direction. For fixed signs (Leo, Scorpio, Taurus and Aquarius) it will be a gift of the energy of the celestial renovation that will help them appreciate the lessons that the eclipse has brought them.

During this 6-month phase, there are going to be troubled trivialities. However, for many it could even mean a 3 to 3 ½ year manifestation time. In the meantime, it’s a time to place emphasis on concord, taking care of obligations and responsibilities of our own actions, and perception of what is real and what is transparent. But it does not have to be all bad. It can also mean new projects, jobs, and experiences; anything that begins with the word “new” which represents the new moon and solar energy which brings dark and light together.

A few days prior to the new moon, known as the DARK MOON, drives are at their deepest receding tide in preparation for the new cycle to start. Each New Moon indicates the fortuitous opportunity to begin a new cycle in your life. Contingent on the essential eminence of the sign in which the New Moon falls, drives different levels which can be delicate, primarily spiritual, physical, mental, or emotional. The modality of the sign regulates whether the emphasis is on consecutiveness, power, or adaptability. This solar eclipse will bring out portions of healing, compassion, emotions, expressed needs, subconsciousness, and reservation or the quiet side of you.

The Simple New Moon brings a time of power and “up-and-coming”. It is a stage of distinct climax, but also a time to seek for the unfathomable association in what you’ve shaped. How can you assimilate your spirit into the world for the greater good of all? The new moon signals a time of manifestation. There is a craving to take accomplishment and begin something new, be it simply a slight alteration. This is the time to function from your spirit and faith in the process; take risk by the hand, feel the truth and don’t afraid that it will go bad or good.

What do you want to form in your life? What dream do you wish to manifest? The new moon begins a new cycle. It is the seed of the foundation for a new lunar cycle.

The New Moon is asking us to establish what our desires are, conferring to the prospects available through this moon in Capricorn. The moon urges you to choose and value the association of the “other” – other people, thoughts, and other principles. Relationships are of great importance currently, and you feel a need to dispense, to combine, and partner, whether lovingly or through other channels.

You are called upon now to work toward realizing symmetry – the balance of your inner life and outer personality, the balance of your necessity to take with your capability to offer, constancy of your definitive principles with what is possible in the world. Capricorn Moon sets us straight up the mountainside toward our highest goals.

Due to the intensity of the eclipse in Capricorn/Sagittarius these are primary signs that will be affected the most. This is not based upon astrology rather characteristics which are amplified by VPAT.

Capricorn Advise

January to March 2019

Dearest Capricorn, this is one of the most intense eclipses which will change your perception of your life. The summer eclipse will open your eyes, but right now the universe is forcing your eyes open. With Pluto in your sign, it makes it remarkably difficult for you to switch on and off. This transition is forcing you to give up things that are not true to your nature. It is ok to be scared but remember, at the end of the day there is a light at the end of the tunnel. With the Rahu and Ketu transit, it has been a long tough road for you and I promise by this spring it will end. You will now begin to see the light and staying busy in your work life will keep you occupied, but it is also vital that you spend quality time with family and friends. You may be very busy or even traveling, but soon, if you don’t slow down it will take a toll on your health. But one of the best things that could happen to you is that you will now take a deeper look into a spiritual frame of mind and your entire approach to life will change. The first couple of months you may come down with a minor cold due to exhaustion. Your finances are a bit of a roller coaster to but once you get past the 2nd eclipse January 21, 2019, you will see that you are ready to exhale.


January to April 2019

Sweet Sagittarius, with Saturn and Jupiter in sign you are probably feeling as though you are being pulled in two different directions. Believe or not, with Saturn it’s not so bad for you, rather it may be even a little advantageous for your as your finances, confidence, pride, and valor gets a boost from the universe. But watch your temper with the people whom you care for, otherwise you will be open to ridicule and insults. Your need to work hard may cause you to get ill, its OK to take breaks every now and then, and you know you love to travel so do so. Make sure you exercise and remain physically active. After March you will see a great boost in everything as you are almost done with your most intense transit in Saturn(shani). This will be a time for deep thinking, especially about wanting to go to college, your family, and where you are. The beginning of the year is all about work, relationships, and perhaps you are planning a vacation. You are also very spiritual which will also be a subject of your inspiration. Keep your mind clean, clear, and tension free, otherwise you will have stomach issues.

Because the moon in Capricorn harvests energy, characteristics which are applied may be restraint, observation, reservation, stability, reliability, unbending, systematic, genuine, and capricious. As its properties are sharp as a solar eclipse, you may choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle.

Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the preferred result is dependent upon the eminence of purpose, and when it comes to finding fulfilling relationships and accomplishment, it is of the greatest importance to begin with an apparent understanding of what the aim should be.

Remember the 12 objectives. The intention of these mantras is to guard, protect, and fulfill needs. It is my suggestion that you purchase a green candle and recite Psalm 117 if you find the mantras too difficult. I suggest you purchase a white or a gray candle and annotate it with Lilac, Sage or Cedar wood essential oil.

Additionally, The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. This year I am going to revert back to three mantras which are labeled as easy, difficult, and advanced. This solar eclipse mantra is to be recited every day until July’s lunar eclipse


Aum hram hrim hraum sah suryaya namah

(om hraam hriim hrauuum sahh sur yay a nama ha)


Om Bhaskaray Vidmahe Martanday Dheemahi Tanah Surya Parchodayat


Om Bhaskaraya Vidhmahe; Diva karaya Dheemahe; Thanno Surya Prachodayath.

Om Aswadwajaya Vidhmahe pasa Hasthaya Dheemahe Thanno Surya Prachodayath

Make sure you take the time to write down 10 aspirations and recite them every day and word them to say “I can have…”

Additionally, please make a note that I am not an Astrologer, nor do I claim to be. The Vedic readings incorporate the energy of the atmosphere, sun signs, and moon signs, while allowing submission which creates a pathway of choice. Vedic reading always allows two different paths, one that is destined for you on a physical world and the one that you change.

Destiny is NOT written in pen; rather, a pencil with a larger eraser. You choose the path of your own destiny. Keeping in mind that in this life there is no real yes or no because we don’t live in a vacuum. There is also no perfect timing since time is universally created by humans to serve a purpose for a human, not the universe. For every action there will always be a reaction. The reaction of our own deeds and action will either solidify or diminish our needs and wants through the process of understanding and embracing.

Please note that starting January 05, 2019, I will be accepting appointments for 6-month self-readings and 3-months relationship readings. These readings will cover areas of complex destiny, changeable destiny, Karmic pressure, and spiritual impetuous lessons. This type of reading is only recommended for returning clients (click here for available appointments)

Please remember that there is another solar eclipse on January 21, 2019 which will once again affect fixed signs to close out one phase and open doors to the new.

Always have journal around for things that happen, both negative and positive, so that you can understand the energy of the future. Since everything in this world makes a circle to question and to see if you passed the test without narcissistic purposes through the test of the eclipse and celestial energies, we can understand what the universe’s intentions are of us. We are creatures of habit and habits are meant to be broken through change, acceptance, understanding, compassion, forgiveness, and love.

If you are signed up for my newsletter, you will receive spiritual bath recipe which can be utilized the day of the eclipse also preference of appointments. Furthermore, for those that have signed up in December, your packages will go out first week of January as postal service was backed up on their mailings.  If you have not signed up yet you have time for your free gift.  The next round of giveaways will not be until spring.

Wishing you a great 2019, and may the solar energies bring you blessings and love always….
