Intuition, Letting Go and Relationship Healing | New Moon in Pisces | Vedic Astrology Forecast for March 27th, 2017

New Moon in Pisces

The exact moment of the New Moon in Sidereal Pisces will occur a little before 11pm on Monday March the 27th, 2017.

The New Moon is the reset point or beginning of a New Lunar cycle, and evolves its primary theme through the course of that cycle.

Pisces is a Water sign that is ruled by Jupiter. The element of Water connects us more deeply to our emotions. And Jupiter itself is the part of us that is seeking higher truth, wisdom and wishes to expand in consciousness.

As Jupiter operates through Water, it takes our seeking of truth into a deeper intuitive and emotional level. It invites us to connect deeply into the deeper mysteries of life and Self.

In Pisces, we learn the final implications of Karma and the spiritual wisdom of releasing attachment. A deeper connection to our true Spiritual nature is sought in Pisces, and letting go of the world of attachment is necessary.

Pisces teaches us surrender in the mode of the famous Serenity Prayer. We learn to accept the things we cannot change, to have courage to make the changes that we can, and we develop the wisdom to know the difference.

Pisces also takes us deeper spiritually, because in order for us to expand our inner experience of True Self, we must shift our relationship with the outer world. This comes through letting go of the world. We must release our obsessive attachments to the things of the world we have imagined our the source of our happiness. As we do, we becoming freer within our Self and able to navigate the world with less expectation and attachment. Thus, we suffer less because we are less attached to what happiness “should” look like.

This is designed to be a process of maturation and evolving discrimination of Truth from falsehood. But the desire to surrender and find that inner freedom sometimes takes the initial desire of just wanted to escape from the world. And this become a potential challenge for Pisces energy, in that we may find ourselves creating unhealthy ways to be free of the world.

A healthy way would be a consistent meditation practice. An unhealthy way would be using sensual indulgence, alcohol and drugs in an obsessive and unconscious way.

As Pisces teaches us surrender and the release of attachments, we may sometime experience this energy as Loss. It can be painful if the attachment is strong. As we evolve, we become more accepting of the natural process of loss, and begin to recognize and accept that all things must come to an end. Pisces is a sign of Completions in this way. It brings cycles to an end and invites us to consciously release that which no longer serves us.

And so here in Pisces, the Sun and Moon will join together for the New Moon. The New Moon is a dark moon, which represent the opportunity to turn within and connect more deeply with our subconscious and inner wisdom. And Pisces itself is one of the most inwardly reflective signs, inviting a deep opportunity to access our intuition and connect to our innermost Wisdom and Spiritual Self.

This New Moon is a great opportunity for Meditation, for accessing spiritual insight and for cultivating a deeper connection to your Spiritual Self. It’s also a great opportunity to allow that deeper connection to express itself through you and into the world. Because of its connection to wisdom, emotion and the deeper nature of Spiritual Consciousness, Pisces opens a quality of compassion, love and the desire to express that kindness and love into the world.

Because Retrograde Venus in in Pisces also, the energy of this specific New Moon will have a deeper reflection around relationships and the search for happiness. You may find yourself reconnecting to past relationships, or maybe just having past relationship experiences coming to mind or maybe reflecting in your dreams.

With the position, it’s a great time to release old relationship patterns and re-establish new ways of being in relationship that are based upon honoring the Spark of Spirit that dwells in others. It’s a chance to bring greater compassion and love to current and past relationships. And it’s also a great time to allow yourself to bring past grudges to completion and allow the deeper love to flow into forgiveness.

These themes will be evolving over the next 28 days through this lunar cycle. Take time to recognize what is being revealed to you around relationships. Also be aware of the call to connect more deeply inward to your Spiritual Self, while also being mindful that it doesn’t turn into unhealthy escapism.

Reflect on what is wanting to be released from your life. What cycles of your life are coming to a completion? And how can you use the inner intuitive wisdom to begin to recognize the seeds for what is wanting to awaken as you move into rebirth? Connect to your inner vision for the next steps of your life, your spiritual path and your relationships.

Balancing Success with Inner Peace | Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Cancer | Vedic Astrology Forecast for February 10th, 2017

FullMoonOverWaterOn February 10th around 7:30pm ET we will reach the height of the Full Moon in Sidereal Cancer. This is the half way point in the Lunar Cycle that began with the New Moon in Capricorn.

This particular Full Moon also happens to be a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse, where the outer edges of the Earth’s shadow cross the Moon and dim its light.

Eclipses happen when the Moon and Sun get close to the Lunar Nodes which are known as Rahu and Ketu in Vedic Astrology. The Nodes bring heightened Karmic acceleration to the usual Full Moon.

In this particular case, the New Moon began a Lunar cycle with themes around commitment to your goals and desires for success, while learning how to overcome obstacles to reaching that success.

The Full Moon always brings the balancing energy. Where Capricorn is focused on creating systems and structure as a means of consistence action and vision towards a goal, Cancer energy is about the vulnerability of the Heart and our search for Love and Peace within.

Imagine what would happen if you simply pursued success at all costs, without any emotional connection. It’s true that we often times need to be able to make non-emotionally decisions when we pursue a goal, because we need to be practical and determine the best steps. But if we live ONLY in that experience, we could become ruthless towards success without concern for anything but our own desires for success. We might also simply burn out, being so committed that we never stop to rest, to receive, to celebrate.

The Full Moon in Cancer brings the balancing energy to this. It invites us to maintain the vision of success, while also balancing it with emotional sensitivity. It reminds us that we need to have a private life where we connect to our family and friends with love, kindness and peace, or at least connect to our own Heart in a space of self care and nurturing.

We must balance our career with our home life in some way. We must honor the cycles of work and rest, just as the Sun can shine all day and then night comes to balance and take us to rest.

The Eclipse effect of the Nodes will bring some accelerated awareness into this theme. It will potentially bring into awareness our subconscious patterning around our capacity to feel our emotions, to be vulnerable, to connect to others and find peaceful emotions. And since the Moon is close to Rahu, there may even be a strong desire to feel more, create comfort and rest rather than pursuing your committed goals and visions of success. We may feel a craving to connect, or even confusion around the ways our emotions are operating right now.

It’s fine to honor the need to rest, to slow down and to connect with life and others. Keep your commitments in mind, though so you don’t let them slip away. You may also use this time consciously to bring MORE heart, love and connection into your goals and commitments. Can you pursue your successes and vision while bring more emotion and love to fuel it?

I invite you to sit with this energy, and just notice what you feel. Are you feeling the desire to slow down and connect? Are you feeling a need to rest? Are you commitments feeling more emotionally overwhelming right now?

And how can you use this window to really sit with the question of how to create greater balance between your career and your private life. How can you balance your committed visions of success with your need to rest and connect your heart to someone or something that brings peace and love to you as well?

What are you noticing during this Full Moon Eclipse period?

The above is a general Vedic Astrology Forecast. It discusses the shifts that are happening at the level of the Collective experience, as well as how you can use that Collective energy for your own growth and evolution.

Committing to Success and Overcoming Obstacles | New Moon in Capricorn | Vedic Astrology Forecast for January 27th, 2016

new moon, moon, skyOn January 27th, 2017 around 7:07pm EST the exact point of the New Moon will in the sign of Sidereal Capricorn.

The New Moon brings together the Sun and Moon in the same section of the sky, causing the Moon to appear dark from our perspective on Earth. It represents the starting point of a new Lunar cycle, bringing our Soul’s Power (Sun) and our deeper Mind and Feeling nature (Moon) together. Out of this connection, we are invited to plant a seed of intention and action for a new cycle of growth.

Capricorn is an Earth sign that is ruled by Saturn. Saturn teaches us control and commitment by exposing us to the impermanence of life. Everything will eventually end, and things that are not consistently developed over the long term will not have a chance to survive. So Saturn teaches us that we must be willing to do practical work in the world in order to put what we have learned into action and succeed.

As an Earth Sign, Capricorn is materially oriented and focused on practical, grounded material success. And Saturn teaches us that we must be willing to do practical work in the world in order to put what we have learned into action and succeed.

Capricorn is also oriented towards protection. It is often looking to avoid problems and can be a great problem solver that is able to avoid and remove obstacles to success.

The New Moon in Capricorn begins a cycle with themes of committing to goals of success. And in order to succeed at the goals we have, we must also face the tangible fears of the world in order to overcome them and develop our capacity to commit and develop determination in succeeding.

This New Moon is taking place in the Nakshatra of Shravana, which emphasizes the need to listen so that we can grasp and understand the world around us and the situation we find ourselves in. This listening include the willingness to hear the views of others with bias. And it is also the ability to listen to our own inner wisdom and guidance. When we do these things, we are able to organize these deeper perspectives in wisdom and ensure that our goals and commitments are truly worth pursuing.

The potential challenge of this Nakshatra placement is that if we don’t invite listening with the intention of seeking truth, that we may fall into gossip or allow our perceptions to be controlled by public opinion, instead of from the Still Silent voice within.

So, I encourage you to take a moment and tune out the news, social media and all of the conflicting opinions and drama that we are all constantly being bombarded with. Stop assuming the News is the truth. Stop assuming that articles your friend’s share on Facebook are giving you more truth. And instead, tune into your heart. Tune into your intuition, and connect to the power of your Soul to illuminate truth.

Out of that inner voice, let yourself see clearly what control you do or don’t have over the current state of your life and of the world. Let yourself clearly see what goals and commitments are worth pursuing. What has been blocking clarity of mind? What has been blocking practical, committed effort to work towards the goals that matter most to you? How can you remove those obstacles? And what practical steps do you need to commit to in order to consciously direct your life into a more positive, fulfilling direction?

What practical systems or plans can you implement that will allow you to reach greater success while destroying fears that have kept you from moving forward?

Please share your insights below. 🙂

The above is a general Vedic Astrology Forecast. It discusses the shifts that are happening at the level of the Collective experience, as well as how you can use that Collective energy for your own growth and evolution.

Renewing Hope and Purpose | New Moon in Sagittarius | Vedic Astrology Forecast for December 29, 2016

new moon in sagittarius

The New Moon in Sagittarius will occur around 3:50am EST on December 29th, 2016. This begins a new lunar cycle and the energy of the New Moon is active for 2 days before and after the actual event.

The New Moon brings the Sun and Moon together into Sidereal Sagittarius, where our Soul and Mind will gain renewed hope, optimism and a sense of meaning and purpose. Sagittarius is a sign of inspiration which seeks higher truth, new teachings and a deeper understanding of the meaning of life and our own existence.

As a fire sign, it illumines truth and inspires action. It is ruled by Jupiter, which is the planet of expansion and growth. And thus, our minds and souls will be inspired to expand into new understanding and act based upon the principles and purpose that we hold to be True.

The New Moon is a seed point for the lunar cycle, and these themes and this search for higher truth and meaning will be prominent for the next 4 weeks.

Mercury is also in Sagittarius at this time, and brings speech and communication into connection with the our soul’s power and our feeling nature. While we may be inspired to talk and share our principles and philosophies with others, because Mercury is currently retrograde, it is actually a time of inner reflection.

In this position, we are invited to reflect over our understanding of the teachings and philosophies that we have adopted. And to even inwardly reflect on whether our core principles still serve us, or whether it may be time to let some go or step into a higher place of wisdom around them.

Venus also just entered Aquarius, where it joins Ketu and Mars. This will bring our relationships and personal search for happiness into connection with the parts of us that scrutinize (Ketu) and protect and defend (Mars). We may find ourselves in conflict with others, and either defending our own views, or being attacked by others for our views.

The conjunction of these three planets will challenge us to stay centered and remain mindful of compromise and the seeking of mutually respectful interactions and perspectives.

I encourage you to use this time to reflect upon your own principles and the teachings about life, meaning and purpose that you hold close. For most people, this connects to our spiritual quest or our religious beliefs. But, it can also connect to other areas as well, such as how you choose to honor and lift yourself or others up.

I also encourage you to be mindful of any conflicts with others that may be wanting to form. Between the Venus, Mars, Ketu conjunction and the Mercury retrograde it is likely that misunderstandings can occur that would result in anger, arguments and even violence. Try to remain present and avert situations before they escalate. If it is an important topic that truly needs to be discussed, you can always revisit it later when there is greater support for open communication and mutual respect.

How are you experiencing these energies in your own life?

The above is a general Vedic Astrology Forecast. It discusses the shifts that are happening at the level of the Collective experience, as well as how you can use that Collective energy for your own growth and evolution.

Rest and Enjoyment Brings Balance | Full Moon in Taurus | Vedic Astrology Forecast for December 13, 2016

full moon in taurus

The exact point of the Full Moon will happen at 7:06pm EST on Tuesday, December 13th, 2016. It will be in Sidereal Taurus, opposite the Sun in Scorpio. The effect of the Full Moon will be felt most strongly for two days before and after the exact time.

The Full Moon is the midpoint in the Lunar cycle and is an integration point. It is when the mind and feeling nature (Moon) try to balance and harmonize with the power of our soul and sense of self (Sun).

This Lunar Cycle began with the New Moon in Scorpio, and we are now at the midpoint with the Full Moon. The New Moon invited a deeper awareness of the fears and insecurities that are dwelling below the surface of awareness, while also inviting us to explore more deeply our hidden power and potential. This process creates transformation, although it sometimes comes with emotional ups and down, unexpected experiences or sudden changes.

The Sun as Soul’s power is still in Scorpio, but the Mind and feelings shown by the Moon have come into Taurus. The Moon and Mind are given greater groundedness and stability here to help harmonize the instability often created by Scorpio.

As the Moon comes into Taurus, it reminds us that comfort, pleasure and enjoyment of family and our material resources helps us to feel more secure and more stable. Good food, a massage, some sensual indulgence of pleasure, nature, and good times with our family and friends helps to bring some enjoyment back in to life. It reminds us that life can be good, and makes the ups and down of life easier to handle.

So, I encourage you to allow yourself to relax, to rest and to enjoy the things that bring you happiness and pleasure in the world. Allow your senses to enjoy the tastes, the pleasures, the textures, the beauty and the smells that are most expanding, inspiring and delightful to you. Reconnect with the joys and pleasures that life has to offer, and see how that helps to stabilize your mind and balance out the changes and unknown factors we have all been experiencing recently.

Mercury is currently in Sagittarius, which brings some inspiration and hope to our speech and communication. And Venus is in Capricorn, reminding us of the need to create proper boundaries in relationships, and to be practical in pursuing happiness and pleasure.

Mercury will also be turning Retrograde on Dec 19th. So, it will begin slowing down between the Full Moon and the 19th. You may feel communications slowing down also, or coming to a halt in preparation for deeper inner reflection during the retrograde period.

What experiences are you noticing with the Full Moon energy and the current lunar cycles? Have you been feeling the ups and downs and the instability of change in the last couple of weeks? And are you also feeling the fullness and the stabilizing forces of the Full Moon and the desire to enjoy life again?

The above is a general Vedic Astrology Forecast. It discusses the shifts that are happening at the level of the Collective experience, as well as how you can use that Collective energy for your own growth and evolution.

Awakening Your Inner Power | New Moon in Scorpio | Vedic Astrology Forecast for November 29, 2016

New Moon in scorpioDuring the Morning of November 29th, the New Moon will occur in the sign of Sidereal Scorpio. The New Moon is when the Sun and Moon are in the same degree of the same area of the sky, and it marks the beginning of a new Lunar cycle.

The Sun represents our personal power and sense of self identity, and the moon represents our mind, emotional heart and capacity to feel. And Scorpio is a sign where we are learning to strengthen our emotional self.

Scorpio is ruled by Mars, which is our courage and strength. And Scorpio is also a water sign, which reveals its connection to our Emotional nature. Scorpio teaches us to develop our strength and courage by learning to face fears, insecurities and the hidden parts of our selves. When we face with the mindset of accepting rather than rejecting we integrate them, and the emotional and psychic energy that was previously used to push these things away or reject them becomes available to use in more positive ways.

Scorpio is a sign of transformation, where we face the ups and downs of life and our own inner nature. Through Scorpio’s influence, we learn that when life brings us challenges and conflicts that it is really an invitation to grow, heal and evolve.

With Mars itself in Capricorn right now, we are given extra support to use our strength and courage in committed and disciplined ways. While the New Moon itself invites the process of facing our fears and hidden nature.

You may notice many opportunities to grow, to transform and to heal at this time. But it’s important that you be paying attention to recognize the invitation. If you aren’t paying attention, then it may simply feel like conflict, insecurity and emotional pain.  You may even act out some of the shadow or hidden parts of your inner nature.

Saturn is still in Scorpio, which brings added influence around bringing up fears. But it also has been doing the work of teaching us how to commit to this process of growth and transformation.

This New Moon plants the seed into our hearts and minds to explore this process of transformation through facing our fears and embracing our hidden nature, the dark or shadow parts of our psyche.

Mercury and Venus are both in Sagittarius right now. Mercury here will support our speech, communication and intellectual curiosity to be connected to inspiration, hope and a desire for higher teachings and wisdom. And Venus here will connect our capacity for happiness with higher teachings and principles as well.

Through the arrangement of Sun, Moon and Saturn in Scorpio, Venus and Mercury in Sagittarius and Mars in Capricorn, there is a strong bridge of change and inspiration occurring. As we face fears and disappointments in Scorpio, we are inspired to seek higher truth and meaning for our lives in Sagittarius. And Capricorn invites us to explore the level of commitment and responsibility we are willing to take on to put our principles into action in the world.

Out of the darkness and pain of Scorpio arises the inspiration to seek deeper meaning in the world beyond our individual suffering. Scorpio becomes a transformational cauldron that changes the inner vibrations of our emotional heart and our subconscious desires in order to support a higher vision for our life.

During this time, I suggest you pay special attention to the conflicts, the challenges and the painful experiences that arise. And try to remember they are invitations to healing and to grow. Rather than resisting your inner discomfort, be willing to sit with it. Smile at it. Get to know it.

Be willing to sit with the unknown and the parts of yourself that live in the shadows that you have not yet fully understood or accepted. Your presence to simply be with all of this without judgement will infuse acceptance and love into these places within you, which helps to heal them and weave them back into your experience of Wholeness.

The energy released and freed up from this process can then be directed into greater strength and positive potential in the world. It allows you to literally raise your vibration and become more confident, joyful and vibrant in the world.

This process happening in Scorpio is really the place where Tantra begins. Discovering our hidden power, transforming our fears and insecurities into strengths and consciously shifting our vibration into higher and higher states. This is the path of Conscious Evolution and Growth, or Tantra.

What are you noticing in your life and around you in relationship to these themes?

The above is a general Vedic Astrology Forecast. It discusses the shifts that are happening at the level of the Collective experience, as well as how you can use that Collective energy for your own growth and evolution.

Balancing Self Empowerment with Others | Full Moon in Aries | Vedic Astrology Forecast for November 14, 2016

full moon, moon, super moon

The New Moon in Libra on October 30th began a new Lunar Cycle focusing on exploring our happiness with others and the ways we may lose our own personal power if we lose connection with our own needs and instead focus only on giving others what they want.

Libra is very much about learning compromise in relationships with others and finding interpersonal and social equality. The challenge for the Sun here is that the Sun represent our Personal Power, and it can lose its focus and confidence when faced with feeling the need to ensure the happiness of others.

When the Sun is in Libra, we can become too concerned with what others think of us to be able to be true to ourselves. And we may also become too influenced by the ideas and needs of those around us to remain clear on what we even want or what is important to us.

As a reflection of this, I know many people who just before, during and following the election have “taken a break from Facebook”. Navigating all of the opinions, reactions, fear, and negativity from friends and others became just too overwhelming to be able to remain centered in one’s own truth and maintain a sense of peace.

The Full Moon in Aries at 9am EST on November 14th, 2016 is that natural balance point to this challenging placement of the Sun. The Sun remains in Libra, but the Moon (Mind) enters Aries where it has a chance to recharge and strengthen its own individual Will. Aries invites the Moon to feel inspired, confidence and strong. This reminds us that even when we are connected to other, we must also be able to access our individual strength and courage.

By keeping our Mind and inner heart connected to our own strength and sense of personal power, we are able to more easily remain strong even in relationship to the needs and opinions of others. This should inspire some new hope and optimism.

And early on November 16th, the Sun will shift into Scorpio which will help to facilitate a change in our perception of power. In order to change them, we may collectively need to face some practical truths.

What experiences have you had over the last week or two in relationship to your sense of personal power in connection to other people?  And what are you feeling now as the Full Moon is active and carrying your forward?

The above is a general Vedic Astrology Forecast. It discusses the shifts that are happening at the level of the Collective experience, as well as how you can use that Collective energy for your own growth and evolution.

Finding Balance Through Letting Go | Full Moon in Pisces | Vedic Astrology Forecast for October 16th, 2016

moon, water, mystical

The current Lunar cycle began with the New Moon in Virgo on October 1st. This cycle invites a focus on the details of our lives that we need to manage and pay attention to in order to create greater health and happiness. This includes exploring the details of diet, sleep routines, digestion, daily routines, and the organization (or lack thereof) we use for setting goals and accomplishing them.

Early morning on October 16th, the Full Moon in Pisces will represent the midpoint of this cycle. Where Virgo represents the intelligent exploration of details, patterns and routines, Pisces is an invitation to let go and surrender.

On one hand, it reminds us that we must find a balance between “the details” and “the big picture”. Obsessing over details can create stress, tension and anxiety. So, first, we need to find the balance. How can we focus on the details while also keeping an open enough perspective we don’t get caught in them? This is in many ways a repeated theme from the Lunar eclipse in Pisces that occurred a month ago.

As part of the current Lunar cycle, it is also about managing the choices we make around our life, daily routines and health. After looking over all these details around health and how we manage our “kingdom” of life, we must also acknowledge at some point that we can’t do everything that is possible. We must narrow things down and select only the best, most effective and impactful choices for us. Pisces as the balance point invites us to begin to surrender and let go of the choices and options that are the lesser or bad choices.

In Virgo, part of the stress itself can actually come from too many choices and not being sure which path to take. Pisces, its opposite and balancing force, is about endings and completions. Letting go and surrender. So, at this time, there may be a process which is revealing what needs to be let go of. This may happen by conscious awareness of seeing that one path feels promising while the other is beginning to reveal its weaknesses and its lack of passion.

Or, if we aren’t consciously paying attention, then the Pisces energy may simply take some of our options away. They will no longer be available to us, and what remains will be the choice that remains.

With Jupiter and Mercury with the Sun in Virgo, they will bring extra grace and discrimination into our soul’s power and the ego’s exploration of these details.

Venus has recently joined Saturn in Scorpio, where our sense of happiness and our personal relationships may begin to feel some pressure. And Scorpio will bring our deeper insecurities to the surface. So if you find yourself experiencing discomfort in your relationships, slow down and use it as an opportunity to heal the inner causes of pain and conflict.

As you look at these influences in your inner and out life, notice what is showing up. What are you ready to let go of? Which details and routines should be kept?

The above is a general Vedic Astrology Forecast. It discusses the shifts that are happening at the level of the Collective experience, as well as how you can use that Collective energy for your own growth and evolution.

Managing your Health and Life | New Moon in Virgo | Vedic Astrology Forecast for September 30th, 2016

new moon, moon

The New Moon in Sidereal Virgo will occur on September 20thm 2016 around 8:30pm EDT. This begins a new Lunar cycle which will have us focusing on managing the details of our lives.

In Virgo, we experience Mercury operating through the practical nature of Earth. Mercury uses its intelligence to understand and organize the details of the world around us. This also includes our bodies and our health.

The New Moon brings together our Power (Sun) and our emotional heart and mind (moon) in connection with these Virgo themes. Jupiter as our wisdom, inspired purpose and higher teachings is very close to the Sun and Moon, sharing it’s expansive and optimistic nature.

Now is a good time to take inventory of your health and your daily routines to determine what best serves your happiness, health and success. With Jupiter’s presence, there is added support to better care for the body and your physical environment with a higher intention of honoring the Sacredness of the body and the physical experience if you so choose.

Either way, honestly assess your diet, your exercise routine, your sleep and the daily activities your pursue to determine what is supporting your body, health and happiness and what may be throwing it out of balance or adding stress to the body.

Virgo energy has a nervousness to it that can bring stress and anxiety to the nervous system and mind. It is helpful to connect to the dutiful nature of Virgo in order to take the actions needed to best care for yourself and your body, but try not to get so caught in the details or in the worry over your health that it just adds more stress. How can support yourself in relaxing and being more peaceful while also making better choices?

As we are beginning to move into Fall, the Virgo New Moon is even more supportive of making a conscious transition. Fall moving into Winter brings more Cold and Dry qualities, which can dry the skin, dry out the sinuses and aggravate the nervous system. This dry and cold quality in Ayurveda is referred to as Vata. Now would be a great time to get an Ayurvedic Consultation to support both this heightened awareness of managing your health and also the transition into Vata season.

These themes around health and managing your life will be in effect for the next 30 days. And they are also reflected in the collective as the need to manage the health of our nations and our people. This includes literal healthcare, but also the health of our government structures and political systems.

Venus has recently moved into Libra where it heightens our awareness of Relationships, compromise and our desire to seek happiness through our social and romantic connections to others. So, you may have greater awareness or greater desire around relationship and social happiness.

Mars also moved into Sagittarius, which brings enthusiasm, optimism and a sense of higher purpose into our actions and the principles that we choose to defend. This is another indicator that finding a deeper meaning or purpose for managing your health and daily routines may strengthen your motivation and willingness to take action.

So, take some time to reflect on your health, your diet, and sleep. Also, observe how your daily routines may or may not be impacting your health and happiness. Consider getting an Ayurvedic Consultation to help support and coach you around health and daily routines.

And also be curious to see how these themes are showing up in your own life, in the lives of those around you, and in the world.

The above is a general Vedic Astrology Forecast. It discusses the shifts that are happening at the level of the Collective experience, as well as how you can use that Collective energy for your own growth and evolution.

Balancing Daily Life with Inner Peace | Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces | Vedic Astrology Forecast for September 16th, 2016

moon, full-moon, eclipse

The peak of the Lunar Eclipse in Pisces will occur around 3pm on September 16th, 2016. This is shortly after the Moon enters sidereal Pisces, which shows the eclipse energy itself began with the moon in Aquarius. And the Sun had just entered Virgo about 7 hours prior.

This shows that our Power and soul (Sun) are seeking ways to create practical plans and steps to bring our creative inspiration into form. And our Mind and Emotional heart (Moon) are carrying our higher goals, ambitions and our desire to serve others into greater Universal compassion and surrender.

Ketu, or the South Node, will bring a stronger influence of letting go and falling away. Pisces is a sign of endings, and Ketu eclipsing the Moon will strengthen the letting go of the old and the outdated.

So, we find ourselves at a turning point with this eclipse. Our past goals may be falling away. Either they didn’t bring the level of satisfaction and happiness we imagined, or perhaps they weren’t practical and didn’t work.  Either way, we are needing to let go.

This is like a reset point, and as the Moon continues its journey past the eclipse it will let go of the past and prepare for a new cycle of growth.

The Sun is joining Jupiter and Venus in Virgo, showing our Power (Sun) connecting to our Higher principles, teachings (Jupiter) and our capacity for Happiness (Venus). Virgo brings about a practical plan to express these things into the world. Jupiter will support with hope and optimism and the expansion of practical steps that are needed to bring about positive changes and growth.  It will also encourage our plans to be based upon our higher teachings and deeper sense of meaning and purpose.

Venus in Virgo has the possibility of becoming too picky, however. So we want to be mindful that we don’t make our vision of happiness so rigid and specific that we find fault in other possible opportunities for happiness and positive steps for change. Because Venus is also an indicator for relationships in general, be aware of any feelings of dissatisfaction within your personal relationships and be willing to ask yourself if you are just placing too many expectations upon the ways you are wanting happiness and pleasure to show up for you right now.

Fortunately, the Moon in is Pisces at this time, which helps to bring a natural balance to the detail oriented, hard working and practical nature of Virgo. It reminds us to balance the practical with the ability to also let go and allow the mind to turn away from the stress of the daily world. How can we find a balance between our responsibilities in the world and our inner desire to relax, let go and feel deep inner freedom and peace?

That question becomes an important theme for this Eclipse. And it will reverberate for many months to come. When we become too focused or obsessed with the managing the details of life, it brings about anxiety and stress instead of order and positive support.  How do we find the balance?

So, what have you been feeling pressured by? Where has life become stressful? What worries have you been focusing on that it may be time to let go of or at least take a break from?

When we are caught in the details, it can be helpful to pull back and look at the big picture again. Moon in Pisces helps us let go and see the big picture. Many things we worry about are beyond our control. It may be time to assess what is causing you stress and ask “am I really able to change this?” If you can’t change it, then it is time to let it go during this eclipse window. And if you can change it, and it IS important, then it’s also time to step away from in so you can rest and relax your mind.

Perhaps a short day trip. Or a day at the spa. Or even just a day of doing nothing would be helpful.

Assess where you have been, what has worked and what hasn’t worked. Be willing to ask yourself where your goals and ambitions have shifted. Then take some time to reconnect with your deeper inner nature of love, joy and peace. Once you have refreshed, then begin to get clear on what works and what your true goals are. Then prepare to recreate yourself by asking “what is the one next step I need to take to take my life in this new direction”.

What are your experiences of this current eclipse?

The above is a general Vedic Astrology Forecast. It discusses the shifts that are happening at the level of the Collective experience, as well as how you can use that Collective energy for your own growth and evolution.
