Published

If we do not live in the rhythm of the lunar cycle, we most likely will feel mood swings. Moreover, our emotional and even physical condition may deteriorate. Therefore, it is very important to understand the influence of nature on us and learn to live in harmony with it. Knowledge of the lunar cycles makes our lives much more pleasant and easier because we no longer “swim against the current” and contradict the world around us anymore. In addition, our health is significantly improved, because the internal processes in our body begin to occur in the most harmonious ways in resonance with the external.

If you want to influence the quality of the moon in your life, harmonize it, and reconnect with lunar power, then full moon bath rituals are the most powerful and pleasant way to do it.

In this article, I want to share with you my three all-time favorite full moon bath rituals I like to perform. And as a bonus, I’ll give you some tips on other practices you can do for balancing the Moon in your life.

Full Moon Bath Rituals

Full Moon Bath Ritual for Rejuvenation

Aura Cleansing Tips Image

During the full moon period, the Moon has a rejuvenating, soothing effect on our body. That’s why it’s very beneficial to use the Moon’s energy for rejuvenation benefits.

It is very good if you have access to the ocean, a lake or a pool during this period. Then just go and bathe in the moonlit path, realizing all the goodness of this moment. While you’re swimming, imagine how your cells are updated, wrinkles are smoothed, and the whole body is rejuvenated.

If you are in an urban environment, then collect water in a jug and put it on the windowsill or take it out into the backyard, so that the Moon is reflected in the water. Let the water soak up the energy of the Moon for a while. Enter the tub with cool water, and pour into it the water from the jug. In a calm and meditative state, take a bath before going to bed. Feeling how all the cells of your body rejuvenate, the skin is filled with radiance and brilliance.

Full Moon Bath Ritual “Bathing in the Moonlight”

This is one of the easiest full Moon bath rituals to perform.

This ritual will help you with sexual appeal. Prepare a big jar, a silver spoon, three lemons, petals of three yellow roses (or a handful of dry Linden flowers, or chamomile), rose essential oil (or lemon, or patchouli, etc.).

The preparation part of the ritual should be performed out during the day before the full moon.

Early in the morning, pour clean water into the jar and put a silver spoon in it. Water should stand for at least 6 hours. Cut the slices of three lemons, put them in a jar, add rose petals (dried flowers must be brewed with boiling water and infused for 20 minutes), and essential oil. Put the jar on the windowsill so that it permeates the moonlight, and leave for the night.

The next day, in the evening, during the actual full Moon time, fill up the bathtub with warm water and slowly pour the contents of the jar. Then lie down in the bath, close your eyes and imagine swimming in a lake of moonlight, and visualize that you are absorbing lunar energy.

Take a bath for at least 20 minutes.

Cleansing Full Moon Bath Ritual

This is one of my favorite full Moon bath rituals!

This full Moon bath ritual will help you cleanse the body, mind, and spirit of internal and external negativity and stagnant energy. It can be performed on the full Moon or the waning phase of the moon following the full Moon.

This ritual should be performed three nights in a row: the night before the full moon, the full moon night, the night after the full Moon. Or you can perform it during the full Moon itself and two days later.

Cleanse the Energy of Your Bathroom

Before performing this ritual you should cleanse the bathroom itself with prayers, burning sage, or incense.

Intention

Set the intention for your cleansing bath – what do you want to let go of? For example, the root cause of a disease, anxiety, fear, or chronic negativity. It can also be envy, a negative dialogue with yourself, or obstacles in obtaining harmonious relationships in personal or professional activities.

Be ready to let go of all the physical, spiritual, emotional, and mental consequences of trauma, hurtful words, evil actions, and negative thinking not only directed at yourself but also coming from you.

Candle

Prepare a white candle in advance, place it in a white or transparent candlestick or glass. Offer words or a prayer of gratitude to the Creator, the Moon, the Spirit, the Power for this healing procedure, for the spiritual gift given to the plants that you will use, which are given to us to help in healing and purification. Ask for the protection and blessings of spirit, the ancestors, the moon, and your mentors and guides.

Herbs

Take the herbs. White sage is required, Basil and rosemary are desirable. You can also add lavender, mint or lemon, and marigolds. Boil water in a large pot and add a large handful of each herb.

Another good way is to wrap all the herbs in a piece of natural fabric. You can also bind a large bunch of herbs if they are collected or purchased in whole plants and this beam then carries out the cleansing.

Bring the herbs to a boil and then turn it off. Fill the bath up to three-quarters and add the herbs. If you use herbs in the fabric, make the bathwater hotter and wait until they give their strength to the water.

Lie Down in the Bathtub

You should lie in the bath for at least 15 minutes.

It is extremely important that the water washed every part of your body, including your head. You can water yourself from a mug.

Intention

Now, when you water yourself or lie in the bath, it is recommended to say this intention:

“I return any energy that I may have received from someone, consciously or unconsciously, to my inner source, with blessing, peace, and love. I also take back my own personal power and energy that I have given, consciously or unconsciously, to restore integrity and balance.”

It is best to say it out loud, with a strong intention three times.

Note

When the cleansing is over, do not wash off the herbs and do not dry yourself off with a towel – let the body and head dry completely on their own.

For at least three days, refrain from watching violent or sad movies, and from being around people who don’t resonate with your views, dreams, and spiritual pathway.

What Else Will Be Beneficial on Full Moon?

  • Fasting
  • Moon mantra chanting 108 times

  • Staying connected with nature: walk in the forest, lie down on the ground, talk to the trees, hug them, etc.
  • Wearing white clothes and pearls.
  • Cooking for your family and friends will help to activate and balance the Moon energy.
  • Charity.
  • Choral singing.
  • Dancing.
  • Taking care of the plants.
  • Doing something nice and giving gifts to your mom or any other older women.
  • Giving flowers to women.

The Bottom Line

Full Moon bath rituals should become consistent practices, especially for people living in cities, where there is not enough energy. When we refuse to let go of our past there is constant pressure on our energy and we feel disharmony, fatigue, and stress. Try to perform these full Moon bath rituals monthly. To do this, simply prepare the necessary ingredients for a few months in advance and follow the lunar calendar. And very soon you’ll see how these simple yet powerful rituals transform your life. You will feel more connected with the Moon and our planet and will feel more balanced and calm.

Astrological Events In August 2020 Image

After a relaxing July when all attention was focused on rest and recuperation, we move into a new period where our perception of life will change. In this article, I will share with you the important astrological events in August 2020, and give a detailed description of the transits of the planets and recommendations for a harmonious life.

Astrological Events In August 2020

Mercury Transit In Cancer (August 2nd)

Mercury image

The Vedic legend says that Mercury is the offspring of Jupiter and Moon, hence it has the characteristics of both of these planets. Mercury is the key significator of our communication skills, analytical abilities, and intellect. So it is a key planet for Lawyers, sales professionals, artists, and scientists. 

This year, the Mercury transit in Cancer will take place on August 2, 2020, and will remain in this position till August 17th, 2020.

Until August 17th, Mercury as the principle of speech will allow you to feed others with positive emotions through speech and give a sense of security, comfort, and belonging to the community.

This period is favorable for the development of communication skills with family and close friends. Communication is imbued with the qualities of sensuality and care. During this time people’s judgments will be traditional, conservative, and based on received emotions. It is going to be difficult to abstract your mind from emotions.

Recommendations for this period (August 2nd – August 17th):

  • Watch your emotions;
  • Try to perceive situations in life, using logic and objectivity;
  • Do not get stuck in feelings of resentment and sacrifice, and try to find options for the development of your own consciousness;
  • Invest your time in studying and learning foreign languages.

Mars Transit In Aries (August 16th)

Planet Mars Image

Mars as a principle of action in our minds becomes very powerful. In August 2020, it brings a lot of fire energy to our consciousness, so it is important to use this power correctly. Fire is the element that has the power to transform our consciousness. Thanks to the fire element, we can help, save, feed, but we can also burn, injure, and kill. Therefore, this period should be lived consciously and compassionately.

Recommendations for this period:

  • work on overcoming your fears;
  • strive to take a leadership position;
  • take responsibility;
  • do sports and yoga;
  • develop perseverance, determination, and drive;
  • work on developing diplomatic qualities;
  • use the power of Mars for good purposes to realize your desires and ambitions.

Sun Transit In Leo (August 16th)

Cosmic Sun Image

On August 16th the Sun transit in Leo will take place, and it will stay in this position till September 16th 2020.

The sun is a symbol of the soul, the inner center of each person. In the sky, the Sun is the center of the solar system. And this transit of the Sun in Leo is especially important because it will make you think about the purpose of your soul and your life mission.

Recommendations for this period:

  • develop your inner power;
  • learn to take a central position and act with a sense of responsibility to other people;
  • work on developing your unique qualities;
  • learn to value the past because it is the key to today’s resources;
  • develop communication abilities;
  • respect traditions and the law;
  • take care of others;
  • do charity work;
  • pay tithe;
  • take care of your family members and friends;
  • show respect to your deceased relatives, even if you didn’t know them.

In Conclusion

As you can see, there are three important astrological events in August 2020 that need to be considered when planning your month.

We can conclude that the General mood of the month is a call to action. If you have a ready-made plan to implement your ideas, then this is a great time to declare yourself. If you are moving with the flow of life and you do not have outstanding ambitions, show the strength of your personality within your family – take care of your elders, and support the traditions of your ancestors. In general, this is a good time to increase your physical activity, start working out more, practice yoga, and strengthen your spirit.

Feng Shui Astrology for August: the Month of the Wood Monkey

Published

on

Feng Shui Astrology For August 2000 Wood Monkey Image

Feng Shui astrology is based on the Chinese calendar. The dates of the beginning and the end of the months are different from those generally accepted in the Gregorian calendar. According to the Chinese calendar, the seventh month of the year starts on August 8th, 2020, and ends on September 7th, 2020. Therefore, all the recommendations are given in this article will be accurate until September 7th.

Feng Shui astrology believes that each month has its unique energy and character. Therefore, each month’s energy is expressed through one of the 12 Zodiac animals and connected to one of 5 elements.

August 2020 is the month of the Wood Monkey. In this article, I will share with you what kind of energy and events to expect in August and how to properly choose dates for different events.

Feng Shui Astrology for August 2020

The Energy of the Month of the Wood Monkey

According to the Chinese calendar, August 2020 is ruled by the Wood Monkey.

In Chinese mythology, the Wood Monkey is an image of a lying tree felled with a sharp axe. Such a tree has lost its roots and lacks support, which may indicate a general sense of insecurity in the world. In addition, the metal element of the Monkey strengthens the water element of the year of the Rat. Therefore, most people will feel anxiety and fear for their future. Under the influence of such moods, people can become irritated and crave justice at the slightest provocation.

Feng Shui Astrology for August 2020 Image

Other characteristics of the Monkey are the power of speech, eloquence, and command of the word.

All this suggests that we can expect public statements, and in general, the month promises to be less calm than July 2020.

On the other hand, August 2020 can give an impulse to start new projects. If something is started in August 2020, it will be implemented faster. Therefore, it is better to start something positive, so that it develops fast.

Auspicious Days For August 2020

August 17th and 29th are good dates for any positive things. Actions started on these dates will get off to a good start and have every chance of success. However, these dates are not suitable for those born in the year of the Dragon.

August 13th and 25th, September 6th are good dates for long-term affairs and getting stable results. These dates are not suitable for those born in the year of the Horse.

Days With a Higher Risk of Getting Viruses And Other Infectious Diseases

August 28th and 30th – during these days it’s easier to get a disease, which is especially important at the present time. Therefore, make sure during these days to practice social distancing and stay home, as there is an increased risk of getting infections and viruses!

Inauspicious Days For August 2020

August 7th, 15th, 19th, 27th, 31st are unfavorable dates to start important things.

August 8th and 20th, September 1st are not suitable for a lot of activity, organizing important events, or starting medical treatment. But you can use them to complete old cases.

The Feng Shui Bagua Map: How to Use It?

According to Feng Shui astrology, each of the 9 sectors of your house is under the influence of a certain type of energy. This energy changes from month to month, from year to year. In this particular article, I will not be talking about the annual chart but focusing on the energy influence of the month.

Center

The threat of COVID-19 continues to loom large, and the Illness star flying into the central sector could bring renewed problems.

Display The 7 Medicine Buddha Plaque for Health Protection in the central part of your house. This beautiful plaque will not only bring healing and good health but also good fortune and success.

Display White Tara’s Gau in the center of your living room, especially if you have elderly family members living with you. White Tara is the goddess of good health and longevity, is capable of alleviating the pain or suffering of those in poor health or experiencing severe disease.

North

Be careful if your main door is located here! The energy of this sector is bringing robbery and betrayal this month! Therefore, it is essential to protect your house against the negative influences of the energy of the month.

Display the Blue Rhino & Elephant with Talisman Feathers to protect your home against robbery and violence. This is a powerful protection against both spiritual and material losses. It is especially important for those who have to face potentially dangerous situations regularly or are born in the year of the Snake, Rooster, Dog, or Boar.

Place the Red Dragon holding Fireball in this sector to suppress the quarrelsome energy.

If your bedroom is located in this sector, carry the Anti-Robbery Amulet with Rhino & Elephant.

Northwest

This sector radiates Yang energy that makes men more aggressive but it boosts leadership luck. This is an auspicious sector for business and commerce, bringing luck to business owners and leaders. To activate this type of luck, place Ru Yi here. It’s better to activate this sector at the workplace than at home.

However, this sector still radiates quarrelsome energy which needs to be suppressed. Place the Red Dragon holding Fireball in this sector. It will help you to maintain peace at home.

Fire Dragon Holding Fireball Image

Northeast

The misfortune energy generates destructive Chi in this sector bringing injuries caused by accidents. Those occupying this sector should be more careful when out and about. With the coronavirus still being a threat, carry the Buddha Vairocana Amulet to stay protected.

Work will be quite stressful, as occupants find creativity drying up. Display a Laughing Buddha in the Northeast to attract solutions to your problems.

Display a miniature 5 Element Pagoda in this sector to control negative Chi.

5 Element Pagoda Feng Shui Astrology Image

East

This is the most dangerous sector in August 2020! The East sector brings all kinds of calamities – misfortune, money loss, accidents, fires, and sickness.

Therefore, it is extremely important to keep this sector quiet this month! Move anything that makes noise out of this part of the house – TVs, stereos, piano. If the sitting area of your living room is located in the East, rearrange your furniture for the month.

Those whose bedrooms are located in the East part of the house should move to another room to protect their luck.

Elderly residents should avoid the East this month!

It is vital to display the 5 Element Pagoda in the East sector of your house to protect yourself and your family members.

West

This sector brings good fortune in romance and literary pursuits. Display a pair of Mandarin Ducks here to activate your romantic luck.

West part of the house is also a good place for studying and preparing for exams. Set up your desk here or spend more time in this sector if you are a student.

This sector also brings success in business and career pursuits. To activate the auspicious energy of this sector, display Luo Han statue here. It increases intellect, brings great strategy, and activates the ability to rise up to high positions of leadership and power. All CEOS, managers, and anyone working in a corporate environment should display this Luo Han in the home or office.

Mandarin Ducks Image

South

This sector brings unexpected windfall luck this month. There continues to be opportunities in the stock market for those who spend a lot of time in this sector. Moreover, this sector also brings recognition and promotion luck!

To tap into the auspicious energy of this sector, display the Windhorse-Boosting Victory Flag in this sector.

Unfortunately, there are lingering illness energies that continue to bring health problems. To neutralize these illness energies, display a Healing Herbs Wu Lou and the White Tara Gau here.

Windhorse-Boosting Victory Flag Image

Southeast

This is an extremely auspicious sector in August 2020! Southeast brings good fortune to its occupants. If your bedroom is located here, you enjoy excellent luck in your career as well as financial support. Those whose main doors are located here experience good fortune and luck in financial pursuits. Keep this sector very active this month!

To activate your good fortune, display the 5 Element Victory Banner here. The five colors of the flags signify each of the five elements, which when displayed together, multiply all the good fortune attracted into your house.

To boost scholastic success, place the Scholar with Dragon Carp here.

To activate money luck, display a Wealth Cabinet in Blue here.

For sectors of the home where good energy resides, it is excellent to activate with plenty of noisy activity.

Pay attention to what day you’re picking for your next hair salon appointment – only choose good days for abundance haircuts in August 2020.

Why Is Hair So Important?

Since ancient times, people have given hair and any manipulation of it a sacred meaning. It was thought, that through one’s hair people can connect with the Universe. Hair serves as “antennas” and “guides” between our world and the world of Heaven. And so far this knowledge has not lost its relevance. Hair connects us with Higher forces, cosmic energy, God, Higher consciousness. By connecting through the hair to the Cosmos, a person is fed by the energies of Abundance and Health.

Best Days to Cut Your Hair In August Image

There were many beliefs associated with hair, some of them have survived to the present day. For example: in any case, you should not get a haircut by yourself, as in this case there is a deformation of your energy field, which can lead to poor health. It is also not recommended to get a haircut on the days of a lunar or solar Eclipse: the hair can suffer, weaken, lose shine, and volume.

What Are “Abundance Haircuts”?

It has long been known that there are days when it is especially favorable to cut hair. Among these days there are days of “Abundance haircuts.”

Abundance haircuts is a special ritual to attract abundance flows into your life. It is good to say special affirmations and mantras for abundance and prosperity on this day. So you will strengthen the ritual haircut and make it a more effective and efficient force.

On this day it would be beneficial to chant the Lakshmi mantra:

  • I deserve to be abundantly happy and healthy!
  • My abundance is constantly growing!
