Happy Birthday to, salt of the earth, Cancer Friends!!
The day before the Bhadrapada full moon is celebrated as Ganesha Visarjan , when clay idols of elephant-headed god, Ganesha are immersed in rivers and lakes. Lord Ganesha , who is the breaker of obstacles, always returns to be immersed each year. Just as clay dissolves in water, life always changes and transforms into something new, but the source of life and truth will remain the same.
Stay cool or rise up with it? The new moon on august 30 am PT is at a hot and fiery turning point. The new moon is in the area of the sky called Magha , a royal star that symbolizes the heart of Leo the lion. The fire of the soul atma is kindled here. This nakshatra is said to be the celestial throne of the ancestor spirits pittris , the guardian angels that protect life on this planet. Magha new moon empowers the heart by tapping into the roots of life itself, and also into the world of spirit beyond. Magha can open portals to higher dimensions and deliver guidance from other realms.
Take heed, anxiety, social unrest, and public scandal could increase in the weeks to come as the continuing alignment of Kala Sarpa Yoga , the serpent of time, awakens and stirs up forces of global karma. Since the beginning of August, Mars and Venus have been burning up together in the glare of the sun combust , and now fast moving Mercury has joined the fray. This pile up of combust planets burning in the fire sign Leo, is an omen of the Amazon wildfires, and other destructive fires and civil unrest recently burning around the world.
On a heart level, the charismatic combination of Venus and Mars in sensual Purva Phalguni , ignites passion and stokes romantic feelings, but may also trigger irritability and conflict in partnerships. Falling in and out of love can happen quickly now, so be mindful not to rush. Mars will reach maximum combustion on Sept 2, and then begin to separate from the sun, possibly pushing stagnate situations out of limbo. Since Sept 2 is also the auspicious birthday of the elephant god, Lord Ganesha , the remover of obstacles, long standing problems can resolve then.
I'm back in India! Because of technical difficulties here, my new moon video forecast will be released after Sept 2.
July 12222 Eclipses in Astrology
Book a Vedic Astrology and Tarot reading with me here. The full moon of August 15 am PT rings with a subtle sound that will magnify the healing power of music, dance, and heart-to-heart connection. Symbolized by a drum or a flute, its lunar rays will enhance your ability to be in sync with your own needs and emotions, as well as those of the people around you. This configuration can help dissolve illusion, self-deception, and self-sabotage on both a personal and a global level, elevating our individual and collective consciousness.
Still in the wake of the July eclipses, the month of August is about getting to the heart of the matter when it comes to love and money.
Venus is at a critical turning point in her eight-year cycle of commitment and romantic desire. No longer visible in the morning sky, Venus is less than half a degree from the heart of the blinding sun. As Venus merges with the sun, she will pass through the door of death, to be reborn in September as evening star. The Venus combustion takes place in the deeply emotional and sensitive nakshatra , or area of the sky, known as Ashlesha. Passions will be ignited and hearts will be tender, so take extra care when it comes to love relationships, as things could easily get complicated.
Think back to what was happening in your life in August and September in the Venus-ruled subjects of love and money. A cycle that began then is coming to completion now. To keep us on our toes, an alignment called Kala Sarpa Yoga , or the Serpent of Time, is magnifying the forces of karma on a global level.
