Energy in 2022 Image

Like any other year, the year 2022 carries both positive and negative energies. These energies do not stand still, they move and flow in different directions every year. Therefore, it is very important to know what energies we are dealing with in 2022. According to the Chinese calendar, the new year starts on February 1st, 2022, and will last until January 21st, 2023. In this article, I will share with you some very important information about three types of energy, the so-called “Feng Shui afflictions”, which can be very dangerous if you do not take them under control. I will also share with you how you can protect yourself and your family from these 3 types of energy in 2022!

These energies not only affect the energy of your house but also your whole life. However, the impact of these types of energy in 2022 is only possible in the presence of certain circumstances. Therefore, if there are no circumstances – there is no affliction.

Although, from my own experience, I know that people often forget about the existence of these energies and thus become victims of their negative effects. But there are special ways of protection even for the forgetful ones that I will share with you in this article!

From the Feng Shui perspective, there are 3 main dangerous types of energy in 2022:

  1. Tai Sui
  2. Three Killings
  3. The Five Yellow.

In this article, I’ll explain what these three types of energy are and how to deal with them.

3 Types Of Dangerous Energy In 2021

Tai Sui

Tai Sui is a very powerful flow of energy coming to Earth from Jupiter. In Feng Shui, we use the term “Tai Sui ” when we talk about the Ray of Jupiter that hits the Earth. This flow of energy is so powerful that it is difficult to withstand. Usually, when a person, recklessly, or astrologically falls under the blow of the Ray of Tai Sui, the most difficult karmic lessons get activated in his/her life. Moreover, this does not happen gradually, but quickly and definitely not pleasant. Most people can’t handle the intensity of this energy, which often leads to tragedies.

To prevent the activation of negative events in our lives, we should never look in the direction of Tai Sui. It is best to sit with your back in the direction of Tai Sui. This position will “turn on” the positive side of Tai Sui – the support of Jupiter.

Tai Sui 2022

The Tai Sui of 2022 is represented by General He E.

General He E presiding over the energies of 2022 suggests that this year the world will have good leaders who care for the people. There will be money to be made and there is good hope for the recovery of economies ravaged by the past year’s pandemic.

Tai Sui Location In 2022

The energy of Tai Sui goes from the sector of the Chinese zodiac animal of the year. In 2022, Tai Sui resides in the Northeast, the place of the Tiger. This bestows on all those born under the sign of the Tiger his heavenly blessings and protection. In other words, all people born in the year of the Tiger will experience the positive influence of Tai Sui – in 2022, Jupiter will support them.

However, the animal sign directly opposite to the Tiger is the Monkey. Therefore, all people born in the year of the Monkey will experience the negative impact of Tai Sui. Therefore, if you were born in the year of the Monkey, be very careful – do not sit and do not look in the direction of the Northeast which is the Tai Sui direction in 2022.

Many Taoists also believe that it is not just the animal sign directly facing Tai Sui of the year that risks offending Tai Sui. All four animals that form a cross with the conflicting animal sign are at risk.

Therefore, in 2022, the cardinal animals of Snake, Boar, Monkey, and Tiger need to be mindful that they take steps to appease the Tai Sui. Especially the Monkey, which directly confronts the Tai Sui. As I already said, the Tiger, being the animal of the year, is being backed by the Tai Sui. However, those born under the Tiger sign are also advised to pay homage to the Tai Sui to ensure his support continues through the year.

How To Prevent Negative Impact Of Tai Sui Energy In 2022?

This information is suitable for all the Chinese zodiac signs.

1. Do not look in the direction of Tai Sui (Northeast-3: the degrees from 52.5 to 67.5 on the compass). When a person looks at Tai Sui, he (she) attracts difficulties and troubles. Instead, look in the opposite direction (Southwest) so that your back is in the direction of Tai Sui.

2. If the rear of the house is facing Tai Sui (Northeast), then it is not recommended to move in or move out of such a house, start making repairs or start new construction near the house in 2022. Possible consequences can be money loss, health problems or lawsuits. To avoid its influence you just need to wait one year when Tai Sui will leave the Northeast and then everything will be fine. Remember – Tai Sui should never be disturbed!

3. If you live in a house with its facade facing the Northeast, do not start any actions related to digging out a large amount of land from its lot (for example, the construction of another house – digging piles). Also, do not cut trees or renovate this sector!

4. To get Tai Sui onto your side, place a pair of Pi Yao in the Northeast sector of your house. Also, place the image of the year’s Tai Sui here.

5. Those born in the years of the Monkey, Snake, Boar, and Tiger should carry the Tai Sui Amulet at all times!

The Three Killings

The Three Killings is the energy of the element that collides with the leading element of the current year. The Three Killings bring three kinds of losses: the loss of one’s good name; the loss of loved ones; the loss of wealth. The energy of the Three Killings cause illness, accidents, and lawsuits.

The Three Killings 2022

In 2022, the Three Killings reside in the North, to be exact the degrees from 315 to 45 on the compass. Anyone whose house faces the North, or whose bedroom or office is located in the North will be affected by its negative energies. This is an important affliction to control because its effects can be devastatingly severe. It is very important to keep it under control!

How To Prevent The Negative Impact Of The Three Killings In 2022?

1. If the rear of the house is facing North it is not recommended to move in or move out of such a house in 2022. It’s also not recommended to make repairs and dig around such a house. Possible consequences: courts, loss of money, health problems.

2. Do not disturb the Three Killings! Do not make noise in the North sector of your house. Keep it clean and quiet!

3. Display the Protection Shield Against the 3 Killings featuring the 3 Celestial Guardians in the North to guard you against its three-pronged dangers. 

4. Do not have your back to the North this year! This means you should not face the South even if it is a good direction for you according to your Kua number. Doing so could cause you to get “hit” by the Three Killings!

5. As the Three Killings is in the North in 2022, this also directly affects all those born in years of the Rat. If you were born in the year of the Rat, carry the 3 Killings Protection Shield Amulet. You can hang it off on your bag as a bag decoration, clip it onto your belt loops, or use it as a keychain.

The Five Yellow

Five yellow 2022 image

The Five Yellow is the energy of the yearly Flying star 5 (Wu Wang). This star brings misfortune, illness, accidents, loss, and all kinds of troubles. It can bring severe illness, financial loss, and multiple obstacles to success. It also causes hostility and conflict of all kinds.

In 2022, this affliction is of even greater concern because it flies into the Center sector of the Lo Shu Square, making it the dominant star of the year. Thus, it impacts everyone, every household, office, and retail space, in every part of the world!

Being an Earth star in an Earth sector strengthens it further and suggests that if one gets hit by its bad luck, the consequences can be serious.

How To Prevent Negative Impact Of The Five Yellow In 2022?

1. To suppress the negative effects of this toxic energy and prevent it from spreading to other parts of the house place the Heart Sutra Pagoda in the Center of your house. If you have a house that is more than one level, make sure to have the Pagoda on each floor!

2. Keep the Center quiet. Don’t disturb this sector! Do not renovate the Center in 2021! Any kind of demolition or digging work here is dangerous this year. It’s especially dangerous to drill floors, knock down walls, dig holes in the ground, engage in any kind of destructive work. If you have to do a renovation in the Center sector this year and can’t postpone it, make sure your Five Element Pagoda is prominently in place, and MAKE VERY SURE your renovation doesn’t start or end in the Center sector!

3. Ensure you stay constantly protected by carrying the Heart Sutra Pagoda Portable Amulet. In 2022, everyone should have this amulet!

The Bottom Line

Now you know what you need to do to protect yourself from unexpected troubles and problems that these three types of energy in 2022 can bring into your life. First, look at the areas that will occupy these three types of energy in 2022, and make the necessary adjustments. Secondary, place all the protections. And thirdly, stay away from the sectors that these three types of energy occupy. If you follow the above recommendations you won’t feel the negative influence of these three types of energy in 2022.

The September New Moon: Here’s How It Will Affect Us

Published

on

October 2021 New Moon Image

The moon is waning to a new moon on September 25th at 5:55 p.m. EDT. This is when the Moon is lost in the glare of the Sun and completely invisible. The September new moon is a powerful time that can give impetus to our spiritual development and personal evolution. I will share everything you need to know about this new moon in this article.

The New Moon In Vedic Astrology

In Vedic astrology, the new moon is called Amavasya. It is the time when the Moon and the Sun line up.

According to Vedic astrologyShukla paksha, the brightest part of the lunar month begins with Amavasya, when one can count on the indulgence and benefits of the gods. It is recommended to dedicate the new moon to spiritual practices, offerings, and prayers. It is also considered a favorable period for completing previously started projects, cleaning, and charity.

Amavasya is considered the most favorable period to engage in your personal development; spend this day in meditation and prayers.

It is said that any activity related to material affairs will not bring any benefits on this day. However, any spiritual practice you engage in will multiply its benefits when performed during Amavasya. The same can be said about charity and donations done during Amavasya – you will be generously rewarded for your acts of kindness.

The September New Moon

The November 2021 New Moon Image

According to Jyotish (Vedic astrology), the September new moon occurs in Virgo. 

The moon in Virgo is a time of fuss and the need to take into account a lot of little things. If you have a meeting or a deal to close, be prepared for a lot of additional stipulations and conditions. You will have to spend some extra time working on documents.

The energies of this new moon will make people criticize each other and focus on even minor mistakes that didn’t matter much on other days.

During this time, we will all want more order in life. On the negative side, many of us will be annoyed by negligence, inaccuracy, and violation of obligations. All these small tasks will increase internal tension, which will eventually lead to apathy and laziness.

The new moon in Virgo encourages us to pay more attention to the little things. We will have a desire to improve any shortcomings that we notice. At this time, it will be easier to notice small details than distant prospects. Therefore, it’s best to focus on a detailed study of ongoing projects rather than planning new ones.

If you have to interact with authorities during this new moon period, keep in mind that officials will be biased, uncooperative, and not willing to take into account your circumstances. Therefore, it is better to plan a visit to state institutions for other days.

Virgo increases the need for cleanliness and simplicity, so if you have an interview or important negotiations, pay attention to your appearance! It is better to give preference to calm tones in clothes, and pay attention to high-quality accessories during this period. Also, it is good to wear white quartz, which has the ability to absorb all the negative energy, purify your aura, and relieve stress.

The New Moon In Uttara Phalguni Nakshatra

According to Vedic astrology, the September new moon takes place in the lunar mansion of Uttara Phalguni Nakshatra. Let’s take a closer look at this lunar mansion and what kind of energy it represents.

Uttara Phalguni is the Sun-ruled nakshatra. It carries the iconography of a hammock or the rear legs of a cot. Its symbolism is associated with tranquil spaces, healing, and recuperation.

Uttara Phalguni is also called the “Star of Patronage” for its love of humanity and its caring nature. It will drive a desire to alleviate the suffering of society. However, in this desire, a person could become controlling and very stubborn. During this new moon, we may see how those in power will become more totalitarian and controlling, pushing their agenda “in the name of love for humanity”.

Also, this nakshatra deals with relationships and commitments, which makes this new moon a good time to reflect on your relationships and what you can do to improve them. Use this powerful time to honor your current relationships and express your gratitude for the people around you. This is a good time for introspection. Think about what you can do to develop a deeper level of commitment in your relationships and become more loyal to others.

Health-related Issues

Uttara Phalguni may cause weakness of the small intestine (ulcers), disease of the genitalia, injury to the lower spine, severe headaches, appendicitis, thrombosis, and inflammatory conditions of the liver.

The nature of Uttara Phalguni nakshatra: Rajas

Rajas is the energy of change. It represents passion, desire, effort, and pain. The nature of rajas is characterized by a sense of attachment, a desire to satisfy desires.

The new moon in Rajas manifests itself as an active desire to do something, irritation, passion, and strength. The energy of the new moon in Rajas gives anxiety, stubbornness, and a strong possessive instinct. Many will experience anxiety and difficulty with mental concentration during this time.

The goal of Uttara Phalguni nakshatra: Moksha

Moksha is the release from the cycle of rebirth impelled by the law of karma. It is liberation from dependence, from the mirage created by dharma, kama, and artha. Moksha is the dissolution of delusions. The influence of this nakshatra gives an impetus to spiritual practice. During the new moon period, we should be more focused on our spiritual goals and less on the material.

Spiritual Lessons to Learn

Meditation in Solitude Image
  • During the new moon in Virgo, we will be more than usual irritated by other people’s shortcomings. This is a good time for working on patience and acceptance of others the way they are. The energy of the new moon will help to acquire these qualities throughout the month.
  • Refrain from criticism! Don’t criticize people even in your thoughts. Let people be the way they are without trying to change them or tell them what to do. Any criticism during the new moon in Virgo may turn into a conflict. Therefore, try to control your thoughts and your words.
  • Learn to relax and let go of your attachments. Your desire to control everything causes lots of stress and may even lead to depression. Use this powerful time of the month to relax, meditate, and practice pranayama and yoga. This will help you to clear your mind and cultivate more self-love and compassion for the world.

Dos and Don’ts During the September New Moon

Amavasya is one of the best days for donations. When you’re making donations during the new moon, the beneficial effect of it is greatly enhanced, and your negative karma gets purified.

Our emotions play a very important role on the new moon. If you are happy on this day, you will become even happier; if you are unhappy – you will become unhappier. Any of our qualities are strengthened on this day. Therefore, the new moon is a very important time for spiritual seekers since the effect of any puja or recited mantra becomes even stronger on this day.

Amavasya is a great time for new beginnings. This is the time to discard old habits and thoughts, all failures, and embrace the new experience that the new moon promises us.

Favorable activities during Amavasya:

  • Completing tasks
  • Paying off debts
  • Throwing away the old and unnecessary things
  • Fasting
  • Giving donations and gifts
  • Meeting with your parents or other family members
  • Performing any spiritual practices
  • House cleaning (it will help you to clean not only the space around you but also your mind)
  • Honoring deceased ancestors (you can just think about them or look at their pictures)
  • Doing charity (you can donate anything except money)
  • Tuning in to harmony and love
  • Forgiving yourself and others

Unfavorable activities during Amavasya:

  • Making important purchases
  • Getting married
  • Making important appointments
  • Start training
  • Making promises
  • Surgeries
  • Start building a house, or enter the house
  • Making final decisions
  • Taking trips, business trips, travel
  • Making repairs, renovations
  • Appointing important meetings that can affect the execution of transactions, the conduct of business, etc.
  • Making money transactions (invest money, transfer large sums, borrow or lend);
  • Overworking

Manifesting On New Moon

Vision Board Template Manifesting Image

It’s very beneficial to use positive affirmations during the new moon. During this time, affirmations have a special power – they make your positive thoughts and intentions grow and gain strength more quickly. That is why such practices as creating a vision board or Reiki wish box, will be particularly effective on the new moon.

Here are some examples of the high-vibe affirmations you can practice on the New Moon:

  • Love is my inspiration, my conversation, and my life! Peace is my natural state! Gratitude is my way of seeing and being! The face of God greets me everywhere I go!
  • Every cell of my body temple celebrates health and wholeness!
  • All my relationships match the high vibration of unconditional love!
  • Positive thoughts revitalize my body temple!
  • Abundance blesses every aspect of my life!
  • I am guided, governed, and gifted by the eternal presence of Spirit within me! The high frequency of divine love resounds through all of my relationships! Excellence is encoded in my soul and evident in my expression! A consciousness of awe and wonder makes things possible in my life!
  • My commitment to peace, love, and kindness raises the vibrations of the planet!
  • The sweet water of appreciation bathes everything I do!

The Moon Mantra

During the New Moon, it’s beneficial to chant the Moon mantra “Om Chandraya Namaha” 108 times. This powerful mantra vibrates with the energy of the Moon. Chanting this beautiful mantra will help you see things more clearly and look beyond “illusions” to see the deeper meaning in things and the truth that lies within.

Buddha Shakyamuni Mantra

It is very beneficial to chant the Buddha Shakyamuni mantra during the new moon. Recite “Om Muni Muni Maha Muniye Soha” 3, 7, 21, or 108 times. When chanting the mantra, visualize how the Divine Light purifies all your subtle bodies and frees your consciousness from outdated programs.

Chanting the Buddha Shakyamuni mantra brings a change in our consciousness, helps to reach enlightenment, inspires us with new ideas, and gives us confidence in our abilities. Also, it relieves uncertainty and distorted perception of reality.

The Bottom Line

The September new moon will make us more attentive to others’ shortcomings. Don’t let your inner critic ruin your relationship. Focus on your inner peace instead and give yourself a gift of relaxation by meditating, practicing yoga, taking a ritual bath, and doing breathwork. This is a great time for hobbies, studying something you’re really interested in (like astrology, tarot, or foreign languages, for example). It’s great to spend this time closer to nature, hiking or gardening. This is a powerful time for loosening control and following Divine guidance. Be kind, compassionate, and gentle with people during this new moon and always!

Mercury Retrograde In Virgo: How Will It Affect Us?

Published

on

Mercury retrograde in Virgo Image

Starting on September 9th and lasting until October 1st, Mercury’s backward dance in Virgo will introduce an element of uncertainty in the sphere of communication, contacts, purchases, and travel. During the retro cycle of this planet, electronics malfunction more often than usual, plans may unexpectedly change, and ex-partners may return. Mercury retrograde in Virgo will greatly slow down the process of perception of new information. It will bring strong inertia to all spheres controlled by this planet.

In this article, I will share some important information about this period and tips on making Mercury retrograde in Virgo a harmonious and peaceful time for you.

What Is Mercury Retrograde?

The retrograde state of the planet is an astrological term reflecting the astronomical difference in the speeds of movement of the planet Earth and other planets.

Retrograde is a particular type of movement of the planet when from the Earth, it seems to us that it’s going backward, although the planet simply changes direction relative to the Sun. All planets periodically become retrograde. For some, it happens every few months or every few years. But Mercury is usually the record holder in this “marathon”: a retrograde period occurs on average 3-4 times a year.

Mercury is the only planet whose retrograde effect is felt by most people on Earth. It is believed that Mercury has a detrimental impact on people during the retrograde period, but if you properly use the energy of this period, you can benefit from it.

Mercury is the planet of contacts, contracts, information, intellectual activity, communication, and commerce. It is associated with travel and transport, negotiations, training, and signing documents. Mercury is responsible for memory, speech, oratory, logic, and intelligence. Therefore, its retrograde movement may negatively affect all of the above.

Mercury is a planet that has a strong influence on our daily life. This is especially relevant for those living in the big cities, drivers, and people involved in the field of communications.

Mercury has a strong influence on intellect and on how we perceive and analyze information. During the retro phase, subjective perception prevails over objective perception – it is important to remember this and double-check the information before you believe it and share it with others.

Mercury Retrograde In Virgo

Virgo Image

Mercury is a planet responsible for intellectual abilities, communication, speech, memory, and studying. Virgo is a sign of Mercury’s exaltation – this is where its maximum power lays. In this position, Mercury promises intelligent and detailed thinking and the ability to solve long-standing problems. Exalted Mercury retrograde creates a high possibility of misunderstandings and misinterpretations. Your words could be misquoted easily and lead to a conflict. We can also easily misunderstand others. Therefore, it is important to remember – when in doubt, ask questions to clarify the situation rather than make assumptions or jump to conclusions.

Mercury is also responsible for business and career. Mercury in Virgo is a good time to start a new business or get a new job. But when Mercury is in retrograde motion, it is not the best time for new beginnings in a career or starting a new business if your intentions are purely materialistic. However, if you focus on serving your clients instead of gaining profits, you can actually get Mercury’s support in your business.

In terms of health, Mercury retrograde in Virgo may provoke sleep disorders, and bring problems with respiratory organs and bowel function.

Spiritual Lessons

Any planet that is in retro motion creates the possibility of clearing our negative karma by learning the spiritual lessons that the planet brings. Here are the spiritual lessons that Mercury teaches us during this retrograde phase:

  • Learning how to slow down and observe.
  • Accepting people for who they are without judging them.
  • Learning to accept people’s lack of focus and attention and not to judge or criticize them for their mistakes or forgetfulness.
  • Developing kindness and compassion towards every living being.
  • Working on your commitment and patience.
  • Learning to be more flexible and adjust to any uncertain situation or unexpected event.
  • Reducing consumerism in your life and spending less money.

The Dos During Mercury Retrograde

During Mercury retrograde in Virgo, the following actions will be favorable:-

#1: Finish things

If you want something new to happen in your life, make room for it, and finish things before moving forward. Think about how many things you need to finish, delegate, or get rid of before you can move on and bring new relationships, abundance, and wealth into your life. This period is perfect for finishing old relationships, getting rid of toxic people, and sorting out your feelings and emotions. You can also quit your old job.

#2: Deal with unfinished and running projects and documents

You can finish the article or finish the book you’re working on. It is good to restore order and throw away all unnecessary papers, archives, and media.

#3: Meet with friends

This is a good time to meet with friends and family members you haven’t seen in a long time. If you had some miscommunication problems in the past, it’s time to solve them. Reaching out and reconnecting with people you haven’t been talking to for a while is very beneficial during this time.

#4: Analyze your mental attitudes

Pay attention to how your thoughts and attitude shape your reality. Think about – what thoughts you can let go of to improve your life. Are there any mental programs, blocks, or stereotypes that prevent you from reaching your goals? Well, now it’s the perfect time to let them go.

#5: Engage in spiritual practice

This is the time when we all need to focus more on our spiritual journey. Meditate, purify and calm your mind, chant mantras, pray and work with positive affirmations.

The Don’ts During Mercury Retrograde

Mercury Retrograde 2021 Image

During periods of retrograde, all Mercurian affairs develop slowly; there is often confusion, and the risk of mistakes increases. New projects are slowed down, and transport and mail services are disrupted. Studying, engaging in intellectual work, and conducting negotiations is more difficult. During such periods, equipment breaks down more often, and communication operators have problems with their work. Therefore, take note of what is still better not to do in this period to avoid trouble:-

#1: Making purchases

This is not a good time for making any big purchases, because later you may be disappointed and regret it. For example, you may find hidden defects in the things you buy.

#2: Signing contracts, making transactions, opening a business, and starting a project

During Mercury retrograde, there is a very high probability of making mistakes. Therefore, it’s not recommended to sign contracts, make transactions, open a business, or start a new project during this period.

#3: Getting a new job

Those getting new jobs during the retrograde period are usually disappointed with their jobs later. You may not be satisfied with the conditions, some additional information may open some disadvantages or difficulties the job has, etc.

#4: Making important decisions

Later you most likely will regret such decisions. They may bring you more trouble than satisfaction.

#5: Starting a training or course

If you start a training or take a course during the retrograde period, the study may appear to be more difficult than you expected or the knowledge gained may not be useful.

#6: Making big purchases

Anything you buy during Mercury retrograde has a chance to disappoint you in some way. Don’t buy real estate, cars, or anything that requires big money being paid. Most likely, such purchases will not be useful, will be unnecessary in the future, or will break down.

#7: Borrowing money

If you borrow money during Mercury retrograde, it may be difficult to pay this money back.

#8: Starting a new relationship

Relationships started during the retrograde period will not be long-lasting and will not become serious.

#9: Moving, buying real estate, signing the rent

Any operations with real estate will face delays and obstacles. Therefore, it’s better to postpone moving, buying real estate, or signing the rent.

Spiritual Practices

Here are some spiritual tools that will help you make this Mercury retrograde in Taurus a good period for you.

#1: Mercury Mantra

To neutralize the negative influence of Mercury retrograde on your life, chant the Mercury mantra 108 times daily:

Om Namo Bhagvate Vasudevaya Namah

Chanting this powerful mantra gives:

  • self-confidence;
  • concentration power;
  • intelligence;
  • commendable communication;
  • business skills;
  • calmness and peace;
  • wisdom;
  • knowledge;
  • enlightenment.

#2: Gemstones

To pacify the effect of Mercury retrograde, you can wear gemstones throughout this period.

Emerald is Mercury’s primary gem! It is the closest to representing Mercury through its crystalline structure that helps distribute Mercury’s cosmic rays that the planet emanates. Wearing emerald can help balance the influence of the planet and re-establish balance and harmony in your energetic field and mitigate difficulties caused by the retrograde period.

Jade can be used as a valid substitute for an emerald when working with Mercury gems.

Peridot can be used to strengthen relationships and connections. This stone pacifies retrograde Mercury and balances your life. It can be worn for health in general and to increase wealth and happiness in life.

Aventurine is connected to Mercury and is known as a lucky stone. It is great for overall health and well-being. Aventurine can be used to regulate pitta dosha in Ayurveda and is connected to Anahata Chakra.

#3: Yantra

Mercury Yantra Image

Mercury Yantra (also called Buddha Yantra) helps to decrease the negative impacts of Mercury. This yantra also:

  • helps to boost intellect;
  • improves studying abilities;
  • helps in personal development;
  • improves memory;
  • helps to develop oratory and communicative abilities;
  • attracts success;
  • improves the financial situation, etc.

Display the Buddha Yantra in the North sector of your house and chant the Mercury mantra 108 times while looking in the center of the Yantra. Perform this practice daily or, at least, every Wednesday.

The Bottom Line

Mercury retrograde in Virgo is part of the natural cycle intended to be a time of reflecting and revisiting things that need our attention. This is the time to slow down, reflect, and listen to our voice within. It can feel like a punishment in our fast-paced world, but in reality, it can be a blessing. Mercury retrograde offers us a beautiful opportunity to tidy up, chill out, and get crystal clear on exactly what we need to do to further align with our inner Potential, Power, and Purpose.

The September Full Moon: Dealing With a Two-Faced Reality

Published

on

The September Full Moon Image

The full moon rises on Saturday, September 10th. According to Jyotish (Vedic astrology), it occurs in the sign of Aquarius. In this article, I will share everything you need to know about the full moon in Aquarius and give some tips on how to make this time balanced and smooth.

When Is The Full Moon In Aquarius?

The full moon in Aquarius will occur on Saturday, September 10th, 2022, reaching peak illumination at 5:58 AM Eastern Time.

The Full Moon In Aquarius

During the full moon period, we are most affected by the constellation in which the moon resides. The full moon in September fills our minds with the energies of the Aquarius constellation.

Aquarius will make us desire to find understanding and support. It is very important to feel that there are people nearby who share your aspirations and ideas during this full moon. During this time, we will want to support freedom and defend justice. Some of us may even have altruistic urges to do something important for the world.

The Full Moon In Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra

According to Vedic astrology, this full moon takes place in the lunar mansion of Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra. Let’s take a closer look at this lunar mansion and what kind of energy it represents.

Purva Bhadrapada is a Jupiter-ruled nakshatra. It is symbolically associated with twins or a man with two faces. This nakshatra represents duality, the opposites – beginnings and endings, introspection and extrospection, light and shadow.

Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra symbology

Under the influence of Purva Bhadrapada, many people will become two-faced and manipulative. The weaker-minded people should be especially cautious during this time. Many of us will be dealing with a “two-faced reality” – things will look different from what they really are. We may hear empty promises. People may present themselves in an inauthentic manner. Don’t trust everything you hear or see, and try not to get frustrated by people who act fake or try to manipulate others. This is the influence of Purva Bhadrapada – some are more prone to this energy than others. Look at such people with compassion.

This is a time when we all should try to be as honest and transparent as possible with our day-to-day dealings as well as any significant aspects of our lives.

Also, many of us will feel more nervous during this time than usual. We may also be prone to negative thinking, concentrating too much on our fears and worries. Be mindful – don’t allow your overactive mind to take control of your inner voice. Stay present and focus on solutions instead of problems. Meditate and let your mind rest a little.

When making a decision, make sure you’re observing situations from different angles. Stay open-minded. By merging your logic with your intuition, you’re more likely to make decisions you won’t regret.

Health-related Issues

Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra may cause mental trauma, liver problems, weakness of chest/lungs, constipation, rheumatism, problems with feet and toes.

How to Work With the Full Moon Energy?

5 Full Moon Effects on Empaths Image

If we do not live in the rhythm of the lunar cycle, we most likely will feel mood swings and fatigue during the full moon. Moreover, our emotional and even physical condition may deteriorate. Therefore, it is very important to learn to live in harmony with the Moon, especially when it’s at the peak of its activity.

Spend this time during the full moon doing some introspective work. Don’t let your energy run rampant with trying to make things happen. Time spent in silence, prayer, and meditation will be karmically rewarded. No matter what’s happening around you, stay calm, grounded, and centered.

To harmonize the moon’s influence on our lives, we can perform moon practices and adjust our lifestyle to the moon’s vibrations.

Spiritual Practices For the Full Moon

#1: Filling Up With Lunar Energy

This practice is especially recommended for those who have mood swings and unbalanced emotions.

Instructions:
  1. Place a glass of clean water on the windowsill (or next to the window) so that the moonlight reflects in it. Leave it there for the night.
  2. In the morning, drink that Moon water on an empty stomach. Tell your gratitude to the Moon. Chant the Moon mantra: OM CHANDRAYA NAMAHA (108 times).

#2: Full Moon Mantra Chanting For Attracting Abundance

During the Full Moon, go outside (backyard or patio), and stretch your hands up to the Moon. When looking at the Full Moon, set your intention to attract abundance into your life and repeat the following mantra for 12 minutes: OM SHRAAM SHREEM SHRAUM SAH CHANDRAMASE NAMAHA

#3: Chanting SHRIM Mantra

SHRIM is the mantra of beauty, love, and delight. This is the mantra of Lakshmi, the goddess of abundance, wealth, and beauty. Chanting this mantra helps to expand the sense of beauty, and attract love and abundance.

The Bottom Line

The September full moon will teach us how to see life, people, and events beyond duality. We need to learn how to expand our consciousness by overcoming the dualistic point of view. We need to stop putting labels “right or wrong”, “good or bad”, etc. and learn to respect the existence of both polarities. It is the unity of the opposites where harmony is being born. This is the main principle of SOLANCHA.

Take time to reflect on what the full moon brings up for you. Get outside at night and let the light of the Moon shine upon you. Then, bring your attention to the changes in perspective you need to make so that you can overcome the dualistic way of thinking.
