We normally do not speak of new moons, for the moon is the presiding deity of the mind and malefic whilst it is within 60° of the Sun. At this time, we are advised that there are significant challenges facing all on Earth, and as we journey from what the new moon offers to the full moon, we look to what solutions are possible and how we might utilise the planets. So the human journey to peace moves from new moon to full moon, wherein we may take up the stronger lunar energies for the good of the all.
A full moon occurs in Sidereal Scorpio this day, conjunct Mars and Saturn. All three planets have important influence on the human, whoever they are, wherever they are. Loka seva – service to all who live on this realm is important. In this message, we seek to unlock how one might do service.
The final full moon of 2015 will rise on Christmas Day this year – the first time it has occurred at the same time as the holiday since 1977. NASA forecasts the two events will not coincide again until 2034. NASA said the full moon would also be the smallest since 2004. The astronomical event is called apogee and occurs when the moon is at the farthest reach of its orbit from the Earth, nearly 407,000 kilometres away.
We have shared – via guidance given from the Cosmic Hierarchy – that the Full Moon occasions are best days for meditations for world peace, and for sending positive energy out to those in need. We look to this occasion of Full Moon to consider the astrological indications of this full Moon at Christmas.
This coming Full Moon on 10 August – called a ‘super moon’ on account of perigree (closest to Earth) which will occur on 10 August. As the Hierarchy – in the messages of Cosmic Sai Baba, Jalarm and Alcheringa – recommends meditation on full moon days, we offer a reflection on this coming “super moon” and the astrological significance surrounding this.
